You haven't gotten used to his sarcasm yet? I think a lot of times, it's hilarious. He gives me absolutely no reason to put him on ignore....he makes the forum a lot more dynamic even if we don't agree sometimes.

It will be Trump vs. Clinton.

I'm voting for Trump.

Trump's average voter IQ is just barely enough where they put you in the regular school.

I turned 18 in 1997. The first presidential campaign I was eligible to vote in was Bush/Gore 2000. I voted for Bush. In 2004, here came John Kerry. We had been attacked on 9/11, were at war in Iraq and Afghanistan, and I again voted for Bush to stay in office.

In 2008, We had a choice between Barack Obama and John McCain. The world was in turmoil, the Middle East was up in the air, the economy was tumbling from the housing crisis and global uncertainty, and I voted for John McCain. We lost of course.

In 2012, Mitt Romney ran against the president. He didn't really have anything new to say, I wasn't confident in his leadership ability, yet I voted for him. I really didn't know why. It was like I just followed the party lines that I didn't think I was a part of, yet I suppose it was just the culture around me. I voted Romney, and I didn't like it.

Now its 2016. The Middle East is the same, the economy still sucks, but I have thought about it a lot. I will vote in the primaries for Bernie Sanders. And I hope he wins it. We have lived under a corporate oligarchy for long enough, and have seen that they will get their way as long as we allow them to. It is time to reform campaign finance, it is time to make sure that every American has access to all forms of health care, starting at preventive, it is time we re-evaluate our military positions overseas, it is time we put college tuition into check, it is time we pay wages to American workers that keep them off of government dole, and it is high time that we go ahead and tax those that have benefited from our form of society at a rate that will benefit our society by having them here.

It will then be time that we discover an extra $20 trillion sitting around somewhere, I'm afraid. I, too, like Sanders' ideology, but on examination, it is simply unfeasible, I'm afraid.

Clinton. But Sanders' ideology is probably the future of the Democratic Party, so I could easily see Hillary being the last (D) I vote for in a presidential election for a while. I'm hoping if they lose again the Republicans (at least the national party) will come back to the center-right or that we'll get some kind of proportional representation reforms that enable third parties to compete. I'm not sure which of these hopes is more unrealistic.

I'm not super-excited about Clinton. She's only a little to my left, but I don't give her high marks for character or managerial competence. Nevertheless, the rest of the field is so pathetic she's the clear choice.

It'll be interesting to see who Mein Trumpf picks as his running mate, hopefully Sarah Louise!

Otherwise, still undecided at this point.

agreed. He is the only Republican to speak the truth about the invasion of Iraq under false pretenses, and the false narrative of Bush keeping America safe. I was in lower Manhattan on 9/11 and I did not feel safe that day.
