Sigh haven't really found a candiate that fits that bill. Not sure what I am to do for the election.

I could probably vote for Kasich he seems like a good balance, but doubt he'll win.
Kasich is definitely not pro-choice and has done everything possible in his state to whittle away at women's reproductive rights and he has tried to tie some funding to some religious requirements. Not sure he's your man.

But - certainly he's one of the more moderate repbulicans.

I would say Hillary but she is not going to be pro-gun or pro-prison reform. Prison reform is one of my pet peeves too.

I am against bigotry and racism and self-righteous religious fundamentalists of any religion, and I am (mostly) pro-choice, anti-war, and pro-environment -- but I am ALSO a "traditionalist" who is against illegal immigration, "political correctness" (for the most part), and welfare recipients who can work but choose not to do so. (I am also against special entitlements for anyone, rich or poor.)

The word racism and racist are used way to loosely, and to shut people up if you, (you, meaning, in general, not you personally)

If your speaking about a group of people and you say, "These people," and are called a racist, that is wrong and it is wrong to try and shut people down by calling them a racist for saying that.

But, it is ok if they say it when trying to push their agenda.

This is shutting down freedom of speech...everyone has a right to their opinion, be it we agree or not....
that doesn't make them or you a racist....
