Thanks to everyone who has voted on my poll!
komododragon8 says2015-05-28T12:24:59.8343074-05:00
Definitely not Ted Cruz, Ben Carson or Rand Paul. Possibly Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders. I'll have to do more research on the rest.

Jeb Bush?

@komododragon8 Make sure you research Hillary and Bernie real good. I think if you had they would have been off your list of possibilities already.

FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T09:40:56.2302370-05:00
Komodo - Theyre just the worst two possible so far. Bernie and his union's ... My goodness. How does anyone plan to both entrap businesses from running to other countries AND raise minimum wage/unionize the entire workforce against them? No one's gonna want to start a business under those kinds of pretenses.
Deuterium says2015-06-01T09:45:46.8527176-05:00
Freedom, there are many who start a business in Scandinavia, in addition those businesses thrive.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T09:46:07.6635178-05:00
You're not going anywhere to better your business ... And on top of that we are gonna bleed you dry and force you to hand ownership over to your workers. ... Yep ... No ones going to want to start anything or create anything proprietary knowing anyone you employ gets immediate rights over your work and all the risk you've put into developing the business.

Deuterium says2015-06-01T09:53:57.9656995-05:00
Scandinavian countries do not only support employees, they support business owners as well. They just don't value corporations above citizens. And how can you continue to claim none would ever want to start a business under those conditions, when it's proven false? IKEA is Swedish.
Kylar says2015-06-01T10:42:37.0470970-05:00
Add in Lindsey Graham and Rick Perry and Lincoln Chafee
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T11:00:23.5616065-05:00
"how can you continue to claim none would ever want to start a business under those conditions?" Because I've asked myself that question and I've watched the reaction current businesses have towards such ideas. They don't want to be in that position, I wouldn't want to be in that position, Bernie Sanders wants to force them into that position using gov't regulation. Also wants to block them from leaving. Seems natural people would just start somewhere else, move to greener pastures.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T11:29:08.1279706-05:00
@ Preston I'm not voting for the world. I'm voting for the United States. I couldn't give a damn about the world's opinion on the matter.
Deuterium says2015-06-01T11:32:53.9267128-05:00
If they really want to leave if they’re forced to pay their employees a reasonable wage they can live on, then I say: let them. Have fun in China or India. If they want to profit from the massive consumer market in the US, they’ll stay and adapt or be replaced by more competitive businesses.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T11:43:29.5685336-05:00
I agree. We should let them leave. The inevitably will and our policy will have to change to attract good business back again. Consumer market here are inconsequential. Theyll buy from wherever in the world they can if they want the product. The issue comes from whether or not you want our citizens to be the ones benefiting from employment with them or not. They move their HQ overseas ... There go the high paying jobs. The minimum wage ones will still exist here.
Deuterium says2015-06-01T12:00:01.9515909-05:00
They are moving jobs overseas now! There's barely any manufacturing left in the country. Much wants more. So you're saying Scandinavian business owners are somehow smarter since they make it work? Or should we compete with the low salaries of third world countries?
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T12:12:34.8756994-05:00
Im saying, who gives a damn about the minimum wage jobs. Our focus should be on keeping the Corporate HQ's and white collar stuff here. Driving low wage jobs out by minimum wage doesnt help because the people filling them still arent fit to take the high paying jobs anyways. Youre just cutting the uneducated out of the loop. We havent rid ourselves of them enough to be getting rid of the only jobs their fit to work.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T12:15:15.5829236-05:00
If our people and education system reflected that kind of potential, then sure, shipping all our low paid work overseas would work swimmingly. As it stands now ... All that would do is increase our number of unemployed. Low paying jobs serve their intended purpose.
Deuterium says2015-06-01T12:24:16.3743895-05:00
Most high pay jobs need educated workers, free college tuition ensure more competent people. Education is an investment! Not a free lunch.
Preston says2015-06-01T12:26:58.9979647-05:00
"who gives a damn about the minimum wage jobs" How about the vast majority of people, the people who aren't rich white snobs. I mean why would the majority of america, the poor, care about their wages. "White collar jobs" Im a white collar employee, they arent effected by minimum wage AT ALL, they pay more then minimum wage, they dont raise salaries because suddenly their minimum wage employees require higher pay. " Driving low wage jobs out by minimum wage doesnt help because the people filling them still arent fit to take the high paying jobs anyways. Youre just cutting the uneducated out of the loop". You Still havent shown jobs will be effected, and how does this cut uneducated out, if anything families can afford more and educate themselves Bad economics dude, you dont even understand the basics! "If our people and education system reflected that kind of potential, then sure, shipping all our low paid work overseas would work swimmingly. As it stands now ... All that would do is increase our number of unemployed. Low paying jobs serve their intended purpose." Low wage jobs arent going anywhere, manufacturing jobs maybe, but entertainment, service, distribution, ect. Dont go anywhere
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T12:32:56.6911954-05:00
They do indeed. Where are all these low paying workers going to go when their job gets shipped out of the country because the minimum wage here is too high? Sounds to me like money invested in driving minimum wage higher would be better spent investing in education. There is already plenty of incentive for big business to help fund education, or at least vocational schools. It directly trains their employees partly on the governments dollar. Forcing minimum wage on them just detracts from that type of development and keeps people content in their low paying job (that we want to be able to ship overseas or replace by a robot someday). Minimum wage is not a good way to get rid of them.
Midnight1131 says2015-06-01T12:35:35.6258290-05:00
Bernie wins on every poll I've seen on this site, but he's still way behind Hillary in the polls.
Preston says2015-06-01T12:42:14.2716534-05:00
"They do indeed. Where are all these low paying workers going to go when their job gets shipped out of the country because the minimum wage here is too high?" --- This is the most arrogant thing i've ever read, Jobs arent all moving, your telling me that a mcdonalds cashier is going to be outsourced?? NO it wont that doesnt make sense!!! "Sounds to me like money invested in driving minimum wage higher would be better spent investing in education. There is already plenty of incentive for big business to help fund education, or at least vocational schools. It directly trains their employees partly on the governments dollar." ---Obviously education should be developed too, but law and regulation solve for this, in fact minimum wage increase intern increases income tax and thus is beneficial. "Forcing minimum wage on them just detracts from that type of development and keeps people content in their low paying job (that we want to be able to ship overseas or replace by a robot someday). Minimum wage is not a good way to get rid of them." we aren't trying to rid our self's of the poor, we are trying to relocate the poor, educate the poor and allow them to move up/ live easier lives. You act like we are killing them off or ridding our selves of a disease, but even if everyone moves up there is still a bottom, our goal is to alleviate the bottom.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T12:45:10.6355767-05:00
@ Preston The majority of America is not poor. Im not sure why the rich snobs have to be white ... But ok. I think I am at least getting an idea of what group you belong to. Again, we aren't poor. The majority isn't poor. You're going to have to take a look at our GDP by purchasing power to get an understanding of that, instead of listening to whatever the "word on the street" has been telling you. The people around you are giving you a false image of what the nation is really like. Get out some.
Preston says2015-06-01T12:57:32.1249959-05:00
"The majority of America is not poor." -- Around 33% cannot make a living wage, 25% are lower middle class and struggle to survive, 33 +25 = 58% that is a majority >50% "Im not sure why the rich snobs have to be white ... But ok. I think I am at least getting an idea of what group you belong to." --I am lower middle class, so glad you would rather address me then the issues, and why dont you post your race and place on this classist society? "Again, we aren't poor. The majority isn't poor. You're going to have to take a look at our GDP by purchasing power to get an understanding of that" --Purchasing power is based off influence of country not a general populous,' To measure purchasing power, you'd compare against price index such as CPI. '(http://www.Investopedia.Com/terms/p/purchasingpower.Asp), "instead of listening to whatever the "word on the street" has been telling you. The people around you are giving you a false image of what the nation is really like. Get out some." Dude I work in homeless shelters, manage finances, and teach at a community center all while doing NFL Debate, If you don't believe that there are poor people then you need to get out my friend. If you would rather help rich corporations then your simply repeating what you hear your parents say, not forming an educated opinion, because the educated opinion understands there are poor people. You have dropped all actual arguementation against minimum wage and instead you bring up majority vs minority, but even if you ignore the lower and lower middle class and say they are a minority you are still devaluing their lives, their freedoms, their rights, and their individuality. Its a backwards way to think if you are going to get up and say, 'who cares about the poor' and claim a conservative view that says family is important. Because ultimately family is undermined when the parents cant afford to care for their kids.
Deuterium says2015-06-01T13:01:29.4793330-05:00
Freedom, at least we agree on education then, and if I really had to choose I’d choose education because it will be even more imperative in the future, but we can have both. A cashier at McDonalds in Denmark is getting 21$ an hour, which means they can afford it and there still remains incentive to profit. Scandinavian countries don’t actually have a minimum wage though, salary is negotiated between labor unions, employers and government. Unemployment in Norway is 3.9% by the way, if you’re worried.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T15:06:08.4935976-05:00
The same people fall under both of your stats, where do you get off adding them together? Deuterium, can we get together and invest in this kid a bit? He needs it. "If you don't believe that there are poor people then you need to get out my friend" Its not that i dont believe they exist, it's that I don't believe 58% of the people in this country are poor. They own multiple cars, eat food every night, sleep in warm beds under the glow of cable TV. They all manage to have cell phones, designer clothes, etc. You said you work with the homeless, you should know what poor really looks like. If 58% of America was like that i'd be afraid to leave my house, ever. "you are still devaluing their lives, their freedoms, their rights, and their individuality." Im not devaluing their lives by refusing to invest in them, they are devaluing mine by forcing me to invest in them. I'm middle class. It was hard getting here with them holding on to me the whole way ... And it just gets harder and harder the more I try to get away from them. So no, I'm not going to preach family importance or any of that jazz. I just want them off my damn coattails. They can be free and individual all they want ... They just need to do it without me.
tajshar2k says2015-06-01T15:19:31.5694009-05:00
Before Rand Paul ran for president, he said he will let states decide abortion. Now he says he will support a ban. Rand Paul said he will let states decide gay marriage. Now he says he it offends him to call it marriage. Rand Paul said he wants the U.S to avoid military intervention. Now he wants active intervention. Clearly this guy can't be trusted. He started off has a honorable Libertarian, and is starting to turn into the typical Republican to win votes. I'd still support this guy over Hillary, but Bernie is the only candidate who stays true to his word, and actually cares about the middle class.
Preston says2015-06-01T15:31:23.0064670-05:00
@FreedomBeforeEquality, You are citizen of the US, their welfare directly attributes to yours, and you have signed the same social contract as them, the only difference is the opportunities given to them, you obviously had more then them. I do work with the poor, and guess what, not every lower middle class has to goto a kitchen for each meal, and not every low class does either because they feel pride and wish to avoid the kitchen, that's fine. But to clarify LOWER CLASS, and LOWER MIDDLE CLASS are different, and the combined total is greater than those who are not. They are the majority, and they have not been on your coat tales but in truth you have been riding off them, abusing them. They are the ones who work the jobs no one else will because you want a comfy life. They are the ones working twice as hard, doing menial labor, and going home with a fraction of the money. When the lower class revolts its the rich that don't understand. EX: Ferguson wasn't just about the killing, at the beginning the rioters protested unjust laws, did you know in that area if you have an unpaid ticket once new year hits you will have an arrest warrant issued against you? So a low class worker who already is struggling housing and feeding their kids can be sent to jail and fined because he couldn't pay his ticket, This only exacerbated issues in their society and when they revolted it was undermined by those outside their society. Issues in society that harm them go unchecked because you wouldn't want to bother with them. Let me put it like this, if you are a republican you don't support abortion, because life is sacred BUT wont give the poor health care to care for those children, those children should die in your mind because you cant be bothered to assist someone who didn't have the opportunities as you.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T15:34:00.9117187-05:00
He'd gotta try to make it through the repub primaries before he can try to win you guys on the left over. The flaw of our 2 party system. If he'd stuck to his libertarian guns he'd lose to Rubio or Bush and never get a chance at the general election. To be fair ... The current president is changing his tune about military intervention too. The guy who promised everyone we were pulling out of iraq for good is ready to send the troops back out again.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-01T15:44:04.5653272-05:00
This was the impasse from Obama vs. McCain all over again. Take a potential flip flopper or take a straight and honest bad deal. Obama never lied or masked his bad intentions, you knew what he was going to fight for as soon as he got in office, or you could take the gamble and have someone who tries to please everyone and ends up passing contradictory legislation to appease both groups. I think i'd take a gamble with anyone (even Hilary, oh god what am i saying) before Bernie. With him I know exactly what i'm getting, and it's bad.
tajshar2k says2015-06-01T15:48:30.2384362-05:00
Yup, trying to help out the middle class is a bad thing. Trying to give every American affordable healthcare while spending less is also bad.

Freedom: Thats just your opinion based on whay you value. I personally value equal rights for gays and reproductive rights. Therefore I will be far les likely to vote for a canidate who does not uphold these values.
Preston says2015-06-01T15:50:20.4823103-05:00
The way healthcare was executed was poor, however it beats nothing for those who went without it before hand.
Varrack says2015-06-01T15:53:09.9820576-05:00
These polls depress me because they remind me of how close to voting age I'll be on election day.
debate_power says2015-06-01T19:25:56.9416416-05:00
@Freedom I know exactly what I'd be getting under Sanders' platform, and I like it. I guess I must be brainwashed.
ConceptEagle says2015-06-02T09:16:20.6133102-05:00
*Bernie Sanders starts a speech in a town of 240 people(including children)* *400 people from up to 50 miles away attend his event*
benhos says2015-06-02T09:39:37.4485597-05:00
Either Bernie, Rand, or Hillary for me. Definitely not Cruz or Rubio.
tajshar2k says2015-06-02T09:40:04.5494548-05:00
Or Bush.
brandenschirpke117 says2015-06-02T09:41:55.7975294-05:00
So far sanders seems like the best option, but i'm still hoping for JIll Stein to run. But she would have to run uner the democrat name to be a viable canidate, she won't get far if she runs under the green party again.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-02T13:18:02.5795048-05:00
So everyone here is pro union, eh? Perhaps we should take a moment to praise our unionized corporations for a moment? First off, GM, thank you for letting your workers unionize to the point that product quality has become second and driving your company to multiple bankruptcies. Bravo.
Preston says2015-06-02T14:05:29.3946720-05:00
I mean we all know you would rather applaud the big farming corporations that enslave illegal immigrants hanging the threat of deportation over their head.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-02T14:43:01.3495480-05:00
Perhaps we shouldn't be luring illegals here by giving non-citizen benefits out to everyone. Solves two problems at once. Then there aren't any illegals to employ. They shouldnt be getting jobs here at all, so threat of deportation is a non-issue.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-02T14:43:59.7367008-05:00
And i especially do not want illegals to be allowed to unionize. Thats the most ridiculous thing ive ever heard of.
Preston says2015-06-02T14:45:41.2592532-05:00
Thats the point, Illigals will come so long as there is pay that is higher here, so you believe we should let them suffer at the hands of businessmen who threaten deportation if they dont work.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-02T14:51:57.8078943-05:00
I think they are the ones weighing that suffering as less than what they would have back home ... Else they'd welcome the deportation. People are going to make their own choices, illegal or no, thats why I emphasize incentivizing things rather than forcing people. Forcing never works. Forcing the businesses wont work either. Youve got to cut the head off by cutting the non-citizen benefits those people seem to deem "worth it" to come here and work those types of jobs.
Preston says2015-06-02T14:54:03.9395459-05:00
So we should allow slavery because they arent citizens?
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-02T15:03:30.9202308-05:00
See ... Backwards logic. No no no ... You should have come to the conclusion that we should not allow illegals, ergo slavery of those illegals becomes a non issue.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-02T15:05:54.6556107-05:00
You don't make a citizen out of the illegal to prevent them from being enslaved. You don't remove the illegality of what theyve done and reward them for it all to protect against slavery.
CyberConor says2015-06-02T18:05:40.4058015-05:00
Hilary= Fascist, liar, criminal, untrustworthy candidate. Bernie= man who wrote a book on RAPE fantasies, a socialist, has some problem with cooperations that were made by the government.... Rand Paul doesnt destroy the middle class, encourages people to work more. Instead of restricting buisnesses, he gives them less power over america, and more freedom.
TheSatiricalAnarchist says2015-06-02T18:46:13.7758302-05:00
Social Democracy is not Socialism...
mystery_man43 says2015-06-03T15:40:19.8970170-05:00
Okay guys! Sorry about the late update. I have added the much anticipated Lindsey Graham.
JohntheRecorderPlayer says2015-06-03T21:56:15.0759621-05:00
So far Jill Stein, but I've voted for both of the major parties and also for 3rd party candidates so I could change my mind the more I learn about the various candidates.
Kylar says2015-06-05T06:38:06.4271971-05:00
Put in Rick Perry and Jeb Bush and Bobby Jindal and Donald Trump :)
Thegreatdebate98 says2015-06-05T11:38:16.4176420-05:00
From Vermont? What isn't that like the most liberal state in America? We should have someone who is a little more in the middle, that way our country doesn't turn into a battle ground... Only making less than 50% of the population happy.
FreedomBeforeEquality says2015-06-05T14:03:04.2791402-05:00
Novel idea. That guy is about as extreme left as they come.
TheOpinionist says2015-06-06T17:21:41.2781027-05:00
Bernie Sanders is a socialist who uses capitalism to support his campaign. He sells T-Shirts and coffee mugs on his website. Seriously? 26 people need to do a little more research. That research may even consist of looking at the candidates' OWN WEBSITES!
TheSatiricalAnarchist says2015-06-06T17:34:12.1777592-05:00
Bernie Sanders is not a Socialist. Social Democracy is still Capitalism.
skyfish says2015-06-08T18:56:05.8171702-05:00
Yeah bernie he's got a grip on things.
proton4000 says2015-06-18T20:34:40.5414070-05:00
Jeb Bush is now a candidate, but this poll is over anyway
TylerWaage says2015-08-22T16:30:17.0171432Z
None of the above.
Peter499 says2015-09-01T21:50:20.6637592Z
Bernie? Really?
