Never underestimate the power of self-fulfillment. If you desire something, have a passion that you cannot escape, put it out into the universe because anything is possible with hope and determination. One person that has powerful self-fulfillment is Cardi B. The world is her oyster, and she works damn hard at making her dreams come true. So what’s left for the world’s most successful female rapper? Conquering Capitol Hill.

The rapper has already lived multiple lifetimes in her 27 years on this planet, and she’s not done by a long shot. From hustling in the Bronx, to life as a stripper, to becoming a reality TV star, to smashing down the rap industry with her debut album, starring in her first film, to becoming a mother and building the house of her dreams, Cardi has no bounds. Over the weekend, Cardi said she wants to go back to school and make a political difference in the world. 

“I think I want to be a politician.” the rapper said in a series of tweets. “I really love Government even tho I don’t agree with Government.” She added, “I do feel like if I go back to school and focus up, I can be part of Congress. I deadass have sooo much ideas that make sense. I just need a couple of years of school, and I can shake the table.” We certainly know that would be true. 

Cardi B has never been one to hold back on any front. She’s spoken the truth about tax collection, about President Donald Trump, and lately, the back-and-forth with Iran has gotten the rapper a bit worked up and doesn’t want to vent about it on social media. She wants to take real action. 

While she has always been passionate about politics — remember her sitdown interview with Sen. Bernie Sanders? — Cardi tweeted that she got to thinking about working in Congress after watching some war documentaries. 

“No matter how many weapons a country have you need people!” She tweeted. “How are you trying to go against a country and possibly start a war when this country lacks patriotism? I barely see people claiming they LOVE being American.”

Cardi said she didn’t want to divulge further but would soon discuss the matter more in a video or live chat. And just like that, with a couple of tweets, people on social media said Cardi shouldn’t wait any further. She should run for public office now. 

“Someone please tell @iamcardib there is no school or degree requirement to be in Congress,” someone tweeted. “She’s smart, sensible, and wants to make a difference. That’s more than a lot of the people we have there now.”

Mckayla Wilkes, who is running for Congress, tweeted at Cardi and told her that her passion is what drives many to run for office. “I felt the same! I hated politics until I realized that hate came from my community being left out of the conversation. Now I’m running for Congress as someone that’s been directly impacted by policy to give my community a seat at the table.”

Cardi, you’ve already got our endorsement.
