The country needs a Tulsi Gabbard vs John Kasich matchup in the 2020 election.

Democrat Primary...Tulsi Gabbard realizes that the industrial military complex is causing more harm than good. It is expensive and building ill-will around the globe as we have unnecessary wars and drone civilians. In the modern world we need someone pushing peace more than ever.

She supports a national healthcare system, which I like, but has avoided the trap of promising more and more things for free that some in her party are falling into. Many of her opponents simply look unrealistic mathematically...although she could spell out more specifics on various policies.

Republican Primary...John Kasich is the responsible adult in the room who kind of upsets people by telling them that they can't eat cake everyday for breakfast without severe consequences, but you respect him in the end...because you know he is right. Our budget is out of whack and Kasick was the budget guy in the 1990s for congress when it was more responsible. This is a fundamental challenge for our country.

He pushes for his policies in a respectful and dignified manner and you know his heart is good even if you disagree with him on key issues. He won reelection in a purple Ohio by about a lopsided 2-1 margin indicating that he is effective and builds support.

I intend to vote for Gabbard in the primary as my first time ever voting (just got to voting age!) and if she isn't still in the race....I hope Kasich will have joined and he will get my vote.

Neither is extreme enough for the base of their parties to win the primaries.

Will not happen.

Trump puts the US first, so this time I'll vote for him.

That would make for an interesting Democratic nomination battle, yes.
