I decided to switch gears on what I was going to do with this website. Rather than promote my projects, I plan to use this site for the sole purpose of discussing all of the new you developments that are happening with the recent 2016 presidential election. This race so far has been one of the most entertaining to follow. However, it’s also one of the most frightening. The reason being is when you look at the list of candidates on either side of the party separation line, the American voters have put themselves in a position to choose between candidates that are either lacking in some type of integrity lacking in Clinton over her email investigation from the FBI, or lacking in some form of experience via Carson, or uneasy about the current state of economic standards and how business is handled America and suggests socialist ideals in the form of Sanders or just won’t complete right wing psychosis and fear mongering rhetoric compliments of Trump. Now I know that sounds like a very abysmal situation to be in as an American voter with just one year left to decide who will be the president and leader of the most powerful country in the free world. Excuse me, not a year, it’s February, so election day is in just a matter of a few months.
As of now Donald Trump seems to be gaining a lot of media coverage, and is gaining support from hard-core radical right wingers who want to change the current state of American public policy. Guns for everyone. Build a wall. And we have to wonder about what does it really say about what is it that Americans are looking for in a presidential candidate. As of now would just 7 months to decide who will be will be our next president. We still have no idea on any type of plan or structured format to completely redo what Obama’s done over the last eight years all we know is that they want to do something different.
For example Trump is going on record saying that he’ll bring back waterboarding and worse. What exactly is worse? That’s scary if we can ask the question nor will he answer it without calling another candidate “a pussy.” There’s an old saying when it comes to how children imitate or emulate the actions and behaviors of their parents. That saying is, “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” Can we assume the same thing about Trump voters. Is he rallying the support of people that are not levelheaded enough to make rational decisions in the midst of adversity, and as a result out of the panic and fear mongering that Trump continues to perpetuate, will only find support from constituents that have no idea of the impact on a global level that the POTUS has. Electing a man like Donald Trump will have a negative impact on our entire global outlook. There’s already a petition in the UK signed by over half 1 million citizens of the country asking for Parliament to ban Donald Trump from entering the country. How are we going to use this man to achieve global diplomacy?
Next on the list and the Republican side you have Ted Cruz who surprisingly lost the New Hampshire primary to Marco Rubio after he was torn apart by Governor Chris Christie for repeating himself like a robot. It’s clear that the Marco Rubio cannot think on his feet. All of his answers are canned, or rehearsed. His speeches are disingenuous and not convincing. He is poorly trained to say, and is presumably being told what to do. I can only imagine that he is completely a face for an agenda, controlled as a puppet or manipulated by lobbyists and special interest groups behind the scene that are providing the finances to to put in his campaign. These lobbyist will stop and no cost and spare no expense to throw the country into a state of turmoil in utter dismay by deregulating industries that need it the most. Ask the Koch brothers who they support. So far they are not happy with Trump. However, it is interesting that they would rather consider other candidates that don’t have the support of Republican voters.
Jeb Bush is still hanging on like a scab from a cut that you got a year ago, that just won’t heal and turn into a scar. Christie decided that he’s done and has suspended his campaign after the results from the New Hampshire primary. That only leaves a few people left, which is probably where it should’ve been before this race started in the beginning. I mean having more than 10 Republican candidates in the race at one point is just insane.
On the Democratic side of things Sanders annihilated Clinton by a double digits spread and that’s impressive. It’s also encouraging to see what’s going to happen going forward with the next state being South Carolina. Clinton is a southern girl with Southern roots, and she knows how to appeal to that demographic in the South, especially the black vote. Sanders on the other hand has a lot of support of the “new” urban demographic in the sense that he had a rapper named, Killer Mike as a supporter for his opening launch of the Sanders presidential campaign. Sanders still reaches further into the voting pool of young voters, particularity among women, compared to what Clinton has ever been able to. It seems that the recent email scandal is just something that I think the next generation of voters are willing to scrutinize with a lot more. With the advent of “cat fishing” in all the cyber crimes, compared with how unsafe things can be on the Internet with regards to security, young people find privacy important. A person on an executive level should not have overlooked such considerations. the 18-35 demographic consists of constituents where online communication is the most commonly used form of communication. When that level of power is exerted, and there is a disregard for measures that are put in place in order to secure the safety of American people, it raise a red flag and places questions in the minds of young people about integrity in the future.
The biggest thing about Bernie Sanders is that he has been very transparent on his stance on helping out small businesses. As it stands right now the healthcare system for the small business owners to have to pay for benefits for employees under the new Obamacare plan. But Bernie would come up with something that would free up small business owners from having to pay those insurance costs, curious to see how. Plus Sanders proposes to increase the federal minimum-wage to 15 bucks an hour during his term. On paper, it should have a positive impact on the economy overall. There hasn’t been any candidates that have spoke about small businesses with the passion that Sanders has. It’s almost as though he has been planning this for years.No candidate has gone into the level of detail with any sort of specific plan to follow. However, if you go check out www.feeltheburn.org, he’s got a whole page dedicated to talking about supporting small businesses, entrepreneurship, net neutrality and visa reform. His plans are clearly defined and seem to be the best solution to help us get a handle on the situation. He wants to put the power back into the hands of the working class. Clinton said something about being the “small business president” and in that speech, she mentioned a three point plan which she would launch an effort to cut out the red tape and bureaucracy associated with small businesses hesitating entering into the market. She also promoted a targeted tax relief for small businesses, and has stated that she would give small businesses more access to readily available financing. How she proposes this has never been laid out. It sounds like a nice way to sway indecisive voters away from other Democratic candidates. Wait, there’s only one other, Bernie and Hilary in the race for the Democrats. My mistake, I get so confused with all the names and anonymous faces.
