Or if you’re not old enough to vote, who would you vote for?

AHHHH thanks for making this thread I’ve been thinking about this lately. 2016 will be my first election to vote in (yay me! #allgrownup lol) I really am not sure who to vote for though. I grew up extremely conservative, but as I form my own view points I see I agree with some views on both the conservative and liberal side.

I’m strongly leaning towards Ben Carson, though I’m disappointed in his views on the gay marriage legalization. Still, he seems like a really smart, godly man and I’ve read one of his books and I hugely admire him.

I admire Hillary Clinton too, I think she was a huge trailblazer for women in politics; I disagree with her on pretty much all of her views though so I’m not going to vote for her.
Donald Trump annoys me. He seems so arrogant, though I haven’t researched his political views very well so I can’t completely rule him out.

I haven’t looked into Ted Cruz or anyone else very well, so clearly I have some work to do before putting in my vote!

Are you voting next year?

I am! It will also be my first time 🙂

I was originally going for Hillary, but then I found out about Bernie Sanders. As a feminist, of course I think a female president would be great, but I don’t think Hillary should be it. I’m a little uneasy about her, as it seems she only says certain things to get votes.

I reeaaaallllyyyy dislike Ben Carson; I don’t see eye to eye with him on any of the issues:

“I have to tell you, ObamaCare is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. ” It’s bad, but it’s not *that* bad.

On Trayvon (Stand Your Ground): “It’s not a perfect system, but is best we have.” Nope,nope,nope. You can’t just shrug your shoulders and leave it alone, there’s work to do and people are dying.
Homosexuals are the same as pedophiles: Nope, nope, nope.

Able-bodied people deserve to starve if they don’t have a job, assistance creates dependency: That’s abosolutely horrible. Each person is different, and they each have a story. To assume that someone is just lazy because they don’t have a job and they ask for help is heartless.

Don’t get me started on Donald Trump :/ I can’t believe he’s in the lead for the Republican Party. He’s a literal joke. And I heard the amount of people planning to vote for him tripled after he made the racist comment about Mexicans, which is concerning. Way too many Americans believe the myths that surround immigration and unfourtunately that only fuels hate.

I’m honestly waiting until the candidates get narrowed down more before I pick someone to vote for. I’m watching what’s going on, but I’ll make my choice later. However, I am a Wisconsinite who LOVES Scott Walker, so if he’s still in when my primaries come around next spring, I would definitely seriously consider voting for him. He’s been great in our state and is strong on issues that are important to me, so I really like him.

*Deep breath * I believe that we should give all these political leaders jobs.
Donald Trump could do our economy a lot of good. He’s a great business man. But he would not do good for any of our alliances. The man could chase kids from an ice cream truck.
But honestly, I haven’t researched anything, since I can’t vote anyway. I just hope that Obama gets da heck out.
He should have never been let’s in the white house, when he couldn’t even should his birth certificate.
I will pass making a joke about the aunt who disowned me, who was up till 3am yelling about how he was born in Hawaii..

I’m really not forming too much of an opinion until it is narrowed down. I can tell you that Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, and Mike Huckabee are on my absolute nots through. Other then that I am waiting and seeing

I’ll be honest, I didn’t even know Huckabee was running again… That’s another problem with picking a candidate this early in this election. There are so many people running in the primaries that it’s a challenge to keep up with who’s all in the race…

Bernie Sanders 100%. Because he’s not afraid to be liberal.
