Choosing a Third Party Candidate

If you are choosing a Third Party candidate to vote for, choose one who demonstrates the traits of a decent president. This year, choose Evan McMullin.

A Time for Contrition

Half an apology from a man who publicly declares a policy of no remorse in his life proves that he doesn’t understand the power of words and should not be entrusted with such a position of influence as he is seeking.

If he is “our best option” in the election then our society has bigger problems than who is sitting on the Supreme Court.

Real solutions require internal change

Donald Trump says he wants to “make America great again” but he proposes to do it in all the wrong ways. If we were willing to solve our actual problems rather than blaming them on others he would have no appeal as a candidate.

Carly Fiorina

If the question before me were “should Carly Fiorina be our next President?” the answer would have to be I really don’t know yet.

John Kasich

I anticipated a decent amount of political experience but was surprised to find even more political experience than expected. Even when we need a change of course experience is a valuable commodity.

Lawrence Lessig

I wanted Lawrence Lessig to be a viable candidate but I can’t let hope override the facts.

Ted Cruz

Ted’s values centered approach and his open “judge me based on my past actions” attitude make him a candidate deserving of consideration.

George Pataki

I went into this with no opinion of George Pataki but I conclude that as a candidate he is simply a placeholder in case the voters reject all the candidates who are really trying to win the nomination.

Bernie Sanders

In the end I’ve concluded that Bernie Sanders is like Dennis Kucinich or Ron Paul – a legitimate candidate who swings for the fences and excites a portion of the electorate but whose vision voters should take with a grain of salt even if they support him.

Rick Santorum

When surrounded by more flamboyant candidates it’s easy to forget the depth and breadth of experience that Rick Santorum brings to the table as a candidate.
