    Tolik, I too do not trust him but I do not trust any of them so I hope that a Republican gets elected. Remember that there will be a collapse even tho we get a Trump, Cruz or Rubio. O has put the debt of the country so high that no one will be able to save us from a collapse.

    A truly honest person would never make it to the top of the political world. The public would never stand for it because it would require hearing the truth. Everybody is part of some special interest group looking for somebody else to pay for it and they want their candidates to tell them somebody else will in fact pay for it. In a day and age of identity politics, many want special rights and privileges for their group and expect their candidates to tell them they’ll get it if he or she is elected.

    My bottom line with this year’s election is 1st anyone but the Hildebeast and if that wish could be granted, then my 2nd wish is that it be Trump. I do not trust Cruz or Rubio at all. Jeb is a total lightweight dedicated to doing the bidding of his Wall St and Saudi masters. Carson is an honorable man and I like him but I’m not sure he is ready for the national and international stage. I don’t know enough about Kasich to have much of an opinion yet, though he too may be a decent guy.

    MB, I didn’t like Kasich in the first debates for saying that he was OK about gay marriage. He has some liberal areas I do not like. I know that Trump also has some liberal areas in his thinking too but he is not for gay marriage. Trump has a little liberal thinking on healthcare but would end Obamacare but he has a plan to still help the uninsured.

    The way I see things is that I would still vote for any of the three(Trump, Cruz or Rubio) over the Socialist on the other side. The three top Republicans all have something that we all do not like but they have many thing we do like.

    Cruz has the I do not know if I can trust him but the same goes for Trump and Rubio so I will take any of them.

    On Bush and Kasich or Carson to me just do not have the energy that the people are looking for right now. We are bad as hell right now so what I see is that the people want a bad as hell guy to take over. Is that a good thing! Well I do not know but that is what has happen. We the people want someone that will clean house, one that is not the old party establishment GOP. You are right about Carson good man but the people right now do not want a good man to run the country. We want a clean the house type.

    It must be remembered that at best, the President only has the power to veto and perhaps set a national tone. He is not a dictator, despite what Obama is getting away with (and to a large extent Trump says he wants to become).

    And don’t forget the following:

    Kasich had 18 years in Congress, following another 4 years in the Ohio legislature. He’s not just a state governor. He’s a professional politician. Check his record in Congress – not hard core conservative by any means.

    Cruz’ wife is an investment manager with Goldman Sachs. Plus this:

    [F]former DHS head Michael Chertoff hired a former Goldman Sachs executive to combine all the information flows from ALL intelligence communities (NSA/FBI/CIA/DHS/NSA), and that former Goldman Sachs exec is now Chertoff’s partner, and CHIEF of Ted Cruz’s campaign.

    (There are other goodies in that article.)

    http://www.politijim.com/2016/02/ted-cruzs-ties-to-cia-wall-street-and.html

    Additionally, Cruz “forgot” to mention his big loans from Goldman Sachs and CitiBank during his 2012 Senate campaign (the money he SAID was all of his personal savings).

    http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-primaries/265831-cruz-did-not-disclose-goldman-sachs-loan-during-2012-senate

    Who’s received the most donations from Wall Street? Cruz #1, Bush #2, and Clinton #3.

    https://www.crowdpac.com/blog/cruz-clinton-wall-street

    My perception (for whatever that’s worth, based solely on what’s available through the media reports and live interviews/appearances) is that Ben Carson may be the only honest candidate. But he couldn’t manage his own presidential campaign, and let Armstrong Williams seriously damage it over the advice of his own official campaign manager. Plus, I saw a list of people he’s called in to bring him up to speed on a number of issues, and was not at all comfortable with his choices – which I fear might foreshadow cabinet appointments and other advisers. I wish I could remember all the names, and I can’t find the list easily right now, but certainly remember that it was a cast of characters straight out of past Republican administrations. It almost reminded me of the sudden recycling of previous administrations when George W. Bush created his cabinet and appointed other advisors. That did not end well….

    I still think my plan will be to vote in the Democrat primary for Sanders, then hope whoever the Republicans “appoint” can blow him out of the water with his hammer-and-sickle record. If they don’t, we’ll know for sure that the fix was in from the start, and can all go to Minneapolis and “celebrate” the dawn of a new era in the West at:

    [Yes, I’m being 100% sarcastic with that “celebration” remark at that pub, just so there’s no doubt.]

    So GS, It looks like all of us here have very little trust in any of the Republicans in the top 5. But I think that the other side(Democrats) are way to the left, almost communist. So we must vote Republican and hope for the best.

    My question is will America ever have a president that we the people can trust anymore? I think about this all the time since I an a father of two, 21 year old and a 16 year old just starting there life and that I have done my best to teach them what I know. My 21 year old is listening to everything since she will be voting. She tells me that the college is full of Sander voters.

    Trump : self made billionaire , has enough money . Understands economics very well . Probably be the best person to deal with world leaders , this country has had sense the 1940s . He will use executive orders to get things going in a direction he feels is ‘ back on track ‘ , what that is , is unclear . Most likely will not perpetuate the idiotic , fruitless wars we have been having for far too long . Will not wish a continuation of the cold war , but most likely instead , think of mutual financial benefits . Would be able to be flexible and adjust to situations faster …………….again , business experience vs politics .

    Cruz : Not completely clear , weather or not he can legally be president because of Canadian birth . Bad personality , would have a hard time negotiating at home or with world leaders . Is beholding to to banks and other interests . Hot Head , would probably take the US dangerously close to WW3 , over something petty . He makes some good points , but at the same time , his tone is the same tired record of politics , being played over , and over again . Another inflexible leader .

    Rubio : Know little about him ……by choice . Name ends in a vowel , all I need to know .

    Carson : Uninspiring , painful to listen to , public speaking is not a strong point , question is …….does he have any strong points ? My guess is not really . Appears weak and timid …….Putin would chew him up , and spit out the bones . Its too bad , because I do believe his heart is in the right place .

    Bush : Last name says it all …NO !!!!!! he looks and acts like one of those meterosexual Mormons , with no spine . Complete idiot , just like the other two before him ……….everything a Bush touches turns to $hit . He was probably that kid that got beat up on the playground every day , and went home crying to mommy .

    The Dems are criminals and outright Communists on the Sanders side , he is way beyond ” Socialist ” he is a full blown Commi .
    Soooooooooooooo , even though he is also a big question mark , Trump seems to be the clear winner on several levels , if he gets the Rep nomination , I will vote for him ……….if nothing else , but to make myself feel better ( as we all know in a presidential election , the people’s vote doesnt count ) . At this point , the low end needs to drop out , and go away . The fact that there are SO MANY Republicans on stage , shows me that there are too many good ol boys hungry for power , that just hang on like grim death , instead of realizing they have a snow balls chance in hell of winning ( Carson , Bush , Paul , etc ..) . This shows a weakness in the party as a whole . The Dems seem more focused and united in that respect , so there are fewer candidates , and wrap things up rather quickly . That should be a red flag ( literally ) to all conservatives , as to whats wrong with the right ……they are fractured , and its very dangerous . Another thing , stop bringing up Ronald Reagan !!! I lived through the 80s , I didnt think he was all that great , yes he was far better than Carter …….BUT …….it seemed that the attitude of the day in the country was , crap on anybody not making a million dollars ..With financial scams exploding everywhere , and people frantically running around trying to grab every crumb of the imaginary pie , pretending they were somebody they were not ……that was the 80’s in a nutshell ……people seem to forget that . Then cutting mental health , which caused some of the societal problems we have today . Nobody is perfect , but lets not forget , he had his problems , and made his share of mistakes as well .

    Tolik, I do have to say that Rubio when he was a state of Florida senator he tried to end the tax on homestead but all the Democrats, and many of the Republicans in the senate voted down his ideas even tho the people loved them.

    Can you imagine how much the homes in Florida would have sold for. Everyone would have purchased a home in Florida to retire. The school boards when after him. He was proposing a 1 to 2 cent increase in the sale of products and real estate to pay the difference. So I do like him for that reason even tho he has made some mistakes on the immigration amnesty proposal. He has stated that there needs to be a wall and all immigration needs to be legal so maybe he has back down some on the amnesty which he has talked in the debates.

    I personally think that if Trump gets the nomination that Rubio can be a good vice and grow as a vice since he is young. Just my two cents on this.

    My question is will America ever have a president that we the people can trust anymore?

    Freedom, my wiseguy answer would be that you could always trust every last one of them … to do whatever scratches his personal itches, feathers his personal nest, and enriches himself and his buddies. in the sense that you mean it, however, I doubt it — at least within our lifetimes.

    Politicians, presidents included, are all human beings, not angels. (And just in case you might say of Trump, Carson, or someone else, “well, they’re not politicians,” I’d argue that anyone seeking elective office is necessarily, by definition, a politician, though perhaps not a well-practiced one.) Voters are also just as human, each subject to their own personal combination of wants, fears, prejudices, grudges, rational self-interest, civic mindedness, attention span, reasoning ability, and apathy.

    A truly honest person would never make it to the top of the political world. The public would never stand for it because it would require hearing the truth. Everybody is part of some special interest group looking for somebody else to pay for it and they want their candidates to tell them somebody else will in fact pay for it. In a day and age of identity politics, many want special rights and privileges for their group and expect their candidates to tell them they’ll get it if he or she is elected.

    Spot on! A fine expansion of John Adams’s “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other,” or Ben Franklin’s more cryptic (and snarkier) “A republic, if you can keep it.” And that’s the deal. Why would we ever expect to get a representative government that is better than the people it represents? I acknowledge, as a (temporary) “constituent” of bug-eyed Nasty Pelosi, that she doesn’t represent me as I would wish to be represented, but I concede that she accurately represents the majority of voters in her district. They want what she votes for … all the way up until eventually, it all caves in on their heads, and then they’ll be asking questions like yours, and denying that they bear any of the responsibility for it. But a city, state, or nation, by and large, on the make, and on the take, cannot hope to elect a government from among themselves, better than themselves.

    It’s a “give to get” world. Whether you think it’s all just the way human interaction works, or whether you believe the Creator of All looks down and personally orders all the blessings and punishments, either way, it makes the case for a rational morality.

    Whoever takes the VP slot better be ready to take over on day-2. If the President is killed (or dies), we can’t wait for him to train himself.

    GS and Tolik, I found the Rubio tax plan when he was a state senator in Florida, This was a great idea!

    2007: Replace all property taxes by adding 2.5% to sales tax
    Everyone liked the sound of lower property taxes. But the details could get awfully convoluted. Marco Rubio had a plan of his own. He wanted to eliminate all property taxes–all property taxes!–on primary residences, then add another 2.5% to the state’s 6% sales tax.

    At this point I’m surprised opposition candidates aren’t dying. I don’t think the people running things are above what happens in other parts of the world.

    There are no coincidences in politics. How odd a Supreme Court Justice would die in his sleep and no autopsy be performed. Andy Griffith would be more interested in a cause of death then what’s currently happening.
