Get Ready to Rumble!

Finally, all the 20 candidates who are running for President in 2016 have “officially” announced they are running. The fun has begun and it’s going to be a LONG sixteen months.

On the GOP side, The Donald is getting all the press attention because he is “colorful”. Not behaving very presidential, but is saying what people want to hear, even if they don’t approve of the way he says it. He’s attacking everyone … other candidates, the POW’s, the press. Basically everyone except Donald is stupid. We’ll see how that plays out over time.

On the Dem side, Hillary continues her stealth campaign avoiding the press and not answering any questions. Meanwhile the Socialist, Bernie Sanders, is drawing large crowds and challenging Hillary in the polls.

It’s time to stock up on popcorn! 🙂

GOP Presidential Candidates – Update

There have been a few updates since I last posted the list of GOP potential candidates. Most recently Mitt Romney announced that he will not run. His absence is said to be a benefit to other establishment “RINO” candidates like Jeb and Christie.

I’m reading on Twitter that more and more people are saying we really need a Governor since under Obama the country is in such a mess. We need someone with a proven track record of managing a state – a mini-country. While some of the Senators are ‘exciting’, Senators don’t have the experience … as we’ve learned with Obama.

Scott Walker, Wisconsin Governor, recently excelled in Iowa, leading the list of contenders. Also being mentioned as other Conservative Governors are John Kasich, Ohio Governor, and Rick Perry, recent Texas Governor.

One thing is sure so far, the GOP has a deep bench of strong candidates. The Dems only have Hillary, with lots of “baggage” and maybe our favorite comedian, Joe Biden.

2016 GOP Presidential Candidates

Are we ready for the 2016 political games to begin? The GOP has many qualified potential candidates being discussed. The initial disagreement will be candidates from “The Establishment RINOS” vs the conservative side of the party.  The conservatives point out that the last two elections offered up moderate or RINO candidates – and they lost!

One subject that may be debated is the citizenship qualification to be President. Obama’s birth certificate has never been verified nor whether his Indonesian citizenship was revoked, leading people to question his seemingly anti-American position in many of his desired policies. That citizenship qualification is certain to be debated for Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal. They all have parents that were born in other countries, leading questions to their total allegiance to America even though they are U.S. citizens.

  • Ted Cruz was born in Canada but has/had dual citizenship since his mother was born in U.S. His father was born in Cuba. Earlier this year, Ted gave up his Canadian citizenship.
  • Marco Rubio was born here, but both parents were born in Cuba.
  • Bobby Jindal was born here, but both parents were born in India.

After Obama’s weak background of no management experience, many people are saying we need to elect a Governor to get us out of the mess we’re in. Governors in effect run small countries and must negotiate well with both parties in order to balance budgets – a requirement for the states. We need their executive experience, plus it’s very easy to check their record for success or failure. Much of the credit Obama takes for jobs and unemployment rate, came as a result of hard-working GOP Governors such as Rick Perry, John Kasich and Scott Walker.

I prepared this graphic to illustrate the differences/similarities of the people that “may” be considering a presidential run. Eventually I can “x-out” names as they go away or implode between now and 2016.

We The People … For Freedom!

We have only a few more hours for the GOP to try to keep us from being ruled by Socialized Medicine. Obama and Harry Reid are refusing to negotiate, preferring instead to have the government shutdown rather than defund a terrible law. You might want to watch this video for encouragement.
