And then there was one

15 May

At the beginning of May, the Republican race reduced to just Donald Trump.  Senator Ted Cruz and Governor John Kasich bowed out.  Whether the Republican establishment gets in-line behind Trump we will see.  I do think Cruz and Kasich’s departure before the Republican National Convention will give Trump and the RNC time to align for the primary, which they seem to have already done.

On the flip-side, the Democrats are in a very contentious and competitive state with Bernie Sanders supporters losing their cool in Nevada (and a few other places).  It seems unlikely Senator Sanders will withdraw before the DNC convention.  The question is whether in November his supporters (who are mostly lefty independents) will vote for Hillary Clinton, assuming she wins the DNC nomination and Bernie does not run as an independent.

I’m still on the fence when it comes to a Clinton vs. Trump race.  I feel Secretary Clinton’s foreign policy is fundamentally better than President Obama’s.  But the world has changed, specifically Islamic Terrorism has infiltrated the West.    Considering the fierce hatred expressed and violence supported by vast numbers of Muslims and the left against Israel and Jews, I feel we need to vote for a president who will call a spade a spade.

Tolerating hatred and intolerance is wrong.
