It is hard to imagine that there is someone who is not enjoying, if not behind a tear or two, the current presidential election. Although in recent history the Republicans have offered up some highly creative and entertaining presidential candidates, this election cycle tops all previous contenders for most entertaining. Starting at the bottom of the heap, one has to consider Dr. Carson.
In a college commencement speech 17 years ago, Carson told the graduates of Andrews University in Michigan that it is his “personal” belief that the pyramids were built as storehouses for grain and not, as archaeologists say, for the interment of dead pharaohs
Down the line a little bit from Marco is John Kasich who seems rather normal. Because of this, I have to come to the conclusion that he is not a viable Republican candidate. He has not said anything totally off-the-wall so it is hard to place him with the rest of the candidates.
Now to my favorite two contenders; Ted and Donald. Let’s start with Ted. I do not believe that any of these presidential challengers is scarier than Ted. The things he says make me think of those old holocaust movies when the president flips out and pushes the big red button to end the world. When I researched quotes from Ted, I was surprised that one person could say so many incredibly insensitive and stupid things. My suggestion to you, if you are a Cruz supporter or just curious, is to go to the following site and read some of the outlandish statements he has made. Just too much for my tiny blog!
Now on to the main course, potential president of the United States of America, Donald Trump. This is the man, who claims he made it the ‘hard way,’ when the reality is that his father loaned him one million dollars to get started in business. He is, for reasons unknown, allowed to say most anything he wants to This I believe, in a world sick of political correctness, is his ticket to the republican presidential nominee. There is little doubt we are all tired of the incessant cry for political correctness, but to allow a man into office who could possibly offend almost every world leader is patently insane; it defies common logic! The fact that ‘ The Donald’ can say anything he pleases has lifted him above the other candidates. He does not have to answer to any major corporation; he could care less what any major union says about him and so just speaks his mind with no filters while the entertainment-starved American public eats it up. Because of Donald, the debates were some of the most watched events in the history of TV debates!
