Presidential Candidate Opinion: Hillary Clinton

Just… no.

Hillary Clinton

First of all, the fact that she is currently being investigated for everything from security leaks to public corruption by our own federal government makes me completely bewildered that she would dare to run for any office at this point, let alone President. Personally, even if I did think she would make a great President (I don’t), I couldn’t in good conscience vote for her until this investigation was complete. These are very serious allegations, and so far evidence appears to be pointing to her guilt. Not understanding security clearance of communications is not someone you want to be in charge of the country. Someone guilty of public corruption is not someone I would want to be in the top office. In my opinion, it’s absolutely ridiculous that she’s even running during these investigations, and I would seriously have to question anyone who was aware of this and still chose to vote for her.

But down to the issues. Okay, issue.

For me, the fact that she is pro-abortion is an immediate ‘no’ vote. But not only is she pro-abortion, she is one of the most extreme supporters of abortion that I have heard of in recent years.

Lastly, there’s the whole Benghazi issue. Again, some very serious allegations here.

At this point, I honestly don’t even feel the need to look at the rest of her record or issues. These three things are so serious, and cast her in such a negative light, that there is no reason for me to even consider her as a serious candidate.

Presidential Candidate Opinion: Ted Cruz

Oh, Mr. Cruz.

You were once one of my top picks. Tied for second in my eyes.

And then Iowa happened.

Your campaign lied to voters to sway caucus-goers to leave Ben Carson and side with you, CNN has refuted your claims that campaign workers were just relaying publicly reported news, and now we have time-stamped voicemails showing that your campaign was calling caucus workers after both CNN and the Carson campaign stated publicly that he was in fact staying on the campaign trail.

It’s dirty politics. Politics as usual, yes, but that’s not exactly what we’re looking for this time around.

I agree with you on so many issues, but this dirty trick and the continued lies trying to justify it, have left a bad taste in my mouth.

And then I find out about the mailer controversy, and that while you claim to support first responders you refused to support the Zadroga Act… you’re falling farther and farther down my list of choices.

You are no longer anywhere near the top of my list Mr. Cruz, not when there are several very well qualified candidates still in the running.


For those who are interested, Dr. Ben Carson is currently my top pick, with Mr. Marco Rubio my second choice.
