I am in Indiana and I vote next week....who should I vote for?

Hi all! It has never really been a big thing to vote in the Indiana primary because the candidate is usually decided by the time we vote.  This time it is different and possibly pivotal to the end game.

As you know, I read, read and read some more to find content for this site.  And, even given all my research, I still have not decided who will get my vote. Weird, huh?

I have been a big Cruz fan since I saw him at CPAC.  It would seem obvious that I would vote for him. However, the Canadian citizenship issue and the natural born citizen clause gives me pause. Is he really eligible?  What if he gets the nod and the Dems come out full force on this issue?  Grayson has already said he is ready to sue. And, Heidi's connection to the CFR bothers me....not to mention the 'forgotten' loans. Also, there is Carly....do we really want her a heartbeat away from the highest office in the land. I do not like her. And, what about the 500K loan Cruz gave her? Cruz loves America and wants to try to make it better.

Is he a snake oil salesman or the second coming of Ronald Reagan? I don't know.

That said, there is Trump.  He is certainly has the Democrats on the defensive.  Unlike some, I don't think he is in this because of his ego.  I think the man really does love America and wants to try to make it better. But, he has some flips and flops on issues that are troublesome and a background with the Clintons. He donated to McConnell and Boehner...was it business or did he want to shut down the Tea Party's influence? He's big on imminent domain.....I don't approve of it.  He has no previous governmental experience...is that a good thing or a bad thing. I don't know.  And, I get the sense that his immigration plan will be touch back....that needs to be explored further...

Is he a snake oil salesman or the second coming of Ronald Reagan?  I don't know.

Kasich. Who is this guy and why is he on the ballot...not even a contender.

I have so many questions so I thought I would toss this out to you guys.

p.s. We have had a few people leave the site saying we are 'pro-Trump'.  I sure wish those folks were the ones who tried to find content every day.  If they did, they would know that it is very very hard to find pro-Cruz material particularly if you will not use suspected GOP operative sites (which I will not do). I have addressed this before.....so, let them leave.

Cruz lost his credibility when he stopped campaigning for Ted Cruz and started campaigning against Donald Trump. The stop Trump at all costs movement stinks of "establishment politics". Fiorina is nothing more than an opportunist and her infatuation with Islam is also very troubling.

The people seem to favor Trump and I don't think he will be one of those "meant to lose" candidates like McCain or Romney. Trump seems to have struck fear into the hearts of Republicans as well as Democrats. I also think  he will rip Hillary a new rectal orifice as the campaign heats up. Exposing her for the traitor, the criminal and the nauseating POS that she is will be vital for the future of America.

Amen to that.

Trump 2016

Simply put, trump cannot carry the electorate.  He WILL have a staunch support group but he has yet to prove anything, other than bravado and insinuations that have zero credibility.  There are also MANY questions about HIS integrity and conservatism.

There is NO perfect candidate and I am not suggesting Cruz IS a perfect one.  But, considering the other, he is light years ahead.  Frustrating is the complete belief in the attacks mr trump puts out when anyone with 75-20 vision can see he is only posturing himself for the candidacy. Also, he has COMPLETELY alienated himself from MANY thousands of people like me that will NEVER support this fraud.  WHEN he fails, and he will, what will happen then?  What new excuse, what new complaint, will he have?  It SHOULD resonate inside him, his incompetence, his incapability to bring ANY coalition together to defeat hrc, who is a VERY good friend.  Also, to see trump's contributions to overthrow the Tea Party has us befuddled as to how this man can garner one ounce of support from ANY conservative.

Do NOT vote for a perfect candidate.  There is none.  Look at the past and CONSISTENCY and see who IS the best choice.  ANY objective mind will see it IS the Senator from Texas.

Did you see where dear Heidi said her husband Ted was an immigrant and hispanic and that was one of his great strengths? I have also read where he has had all of his records sealed and also his mothers. I don't vote for anyone that cannot stand the glare of the spotlight. What have we had the last 7 1/2 years. The fairy tale of Trump being unelectable is just that a fairy tale he has a better chance then the rest of the crew. I supported Cruz until Trump stepped in because I thought he would be harder for the GOPe to run over than Cruz and the rest of the outsiders. Cruz is still standing because Trump got in the way otherwise we would have another Bushie. And as for Cruz's wife being a Goldman executive and an open border, one world supporter  is suspect. TRUMP all the way.

Let the sunshine in.
There once was a (fraudulent) Occupier of our Whitehouse
That sealed all his records
Fool me once, darn you
Fool me twice, darn me.

TRUMP !!!!!

AMEN!

Simply put Trump will carry the electorate
THAT carries as much weight as you empty assertion.

Give me an intellectually compelling argument, supported with FACTS

I DONT HAVE TIMEFOR EMOTIONAL SPECULATION

My wife started praying for Trump and wrote him, asking him to run well before he announced. Since all the "true conservatives" - who are just as annoying as "true Christians," have been attacking him, I had to figure out what my wife saw in him. ("True Christians" is my snarky for Christians who wear their faith on their sleeves, but not much in the heart.)

The attached piece explains what IMO is his campaign strategy and what makes him a notch above a pure conservative - were that possible. It all has to do with his philosophical priorities of Beauty Ethics and Logic. My conclusion may surprise you.

We will be voting for Trump in California, and so will the Hispanics we know.

Thanks for your info.
You just provided flesh to my skeletal conclusion
That TRUMP is the best risk/reward choice
Check my prior post.

Four years of TRUMP will let him prove his rhetoric.
Hopefully I'll still be around to write him a report card in 2020.

In a nutshell
Cruz is creepy
Trump is terrific
We cannot know for sure.
But forget Kasich, a non-co tender.
Both Trump and Cruz have baggage/worts.

You might make a choice based on the lesser of two awfuls.

Or take a gambling/risk/reward approach.
Given the baggage/worts, which is more likely to turn sour?
Or, which might provide the greatest reward?

My evaluation comes up with the lowest risk/highest reward
choice as TRUMP?

Do you have a rationale?

The natural born citizen thing is big for me.  I don't believe Obama is one and should not have been allowed in office. Would I not be a hypocrite if I didn't look at Cruz's Canadian birth and his failure to relinquish his Canadian citizenship until recently?

Yes, they both have baggage.....lowest rish/highest reward might be the only real way to look at it.

ALERT ALERT

YIKES!!! Chelsea Clinton Emphatically States A Person With A Beard And A Penis Can ‘Absolutely’ Identify As A Woman

  • The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification
  • In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons about transgender self-identification
  • Chelsea Clinton replied ‘yes’ emphatically when asked if someone with a beard and penis can ever be a woman
  • ‘It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently,’ Hillary said
  • Aitkenhead said Hillary became ‘uneasy’ when the question was asked while Chelsea shot a ‘furious stare’ at the journalist as her mother answered
  • Hillary added: ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw’

(Daily Mail) – It may appear Hillary and Chelsea Clinton always see eye-to-eye, but in a recent interview one topic cracked the facade of the like-minded mother-daughter power duo.

The one issue Hillary and Chelsea don’t appear to agree on entirely is transgender self-identification.

In an interview with The Sunday Times, journalist Decca Aitkenhead asked the Clintons if someone with a beard and a penis can ever be a woman, to which Chelsea replied emphatically, ‘Yes.’

However, as Aitkenhead describes it, Hillary looked ‘uneasy’, and blamed generational gaps for being less accepting.

‘Errr. I’m just learning about this,’ Hillary responded. ‘It’s a very big generational discussion, because this is not something I grew up with or ever saw. It’s going to take a lot more time and effort to understand what it means to be defining yourself differently.’

The Clintons sat sown with Aitkenhead to promote the book they co-authored, The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.

The book features Danica Roem, the first trans woman elected to a U.S. state legislature.

According Aitkenhead’s account, she tells Hillary during the interview that many British feminists of Hillary’s generation have a problem with the idea that a ‘lesbian who doesn’t want to sleep with someone who has a penis is transphobic.’

Hillary nods in agreement, while Chelsea ‘stiffens and stares at me’, according to Aitkenhead.

The journalist then adds that many women of Hillary’s generation are uncomfortable with biological males sharing women’s bathrooms.

‘I would say that, absolutely,’ Hillary nods firmly. ‘Absolutely. Yes.’

That’s when Chelsea begins shooting a ‘furious stare’ at Aitkenhead, who points it out to her.

‘I’m a terrible actor’, Chelsea laughs.

Chelsea then says she is thrilled with the National Health Service’s decision to assign patients to single-sex wards according to the gender they identify as, instead of their biological make up.

‘How can you treat someone if you don’t recognize who they feel and know in their core they are?’ Chelsea says.

‘And I strongly support children being able to play on the sports teams that match their own gender identity,’ she adds. ‘I think we need to be doing everything we can to support kids in being whoever they know themselves to be and discovering who they are.’

At this point Hillary looks conflicted.

‘I think you’ve got to be sensitive to how difficult this is,’ Hillary says. ‘There are women who’d say [to a trans woman], ”You know what, you’ve never had the kind of life experiences that I’ve had. So I respect who you are, but don’t tell me you’re the same as me.” I hear that conversation all the time.’

Despite the clear tension in the room, the pair say they don’t argue about this topic.

But according to Aitkenhead, ‘I get the impression they don’t like to present anything less than a united front to the world.’
