Let's see, we have Ben Carson, a homophobic zealot who knows little to nothing about politics or political issues. Personally I am surprised he even made it this far considering he continues to put his foot in his mouth every other week. But I supposed his nomination is a perfect opportunity for Republicans to peddle the fact that he is both black and a famed neurosurgeon so they can pander to minorities and coerce them into voting against their best interests. Then we have Mike Huckabee, need I say more..? And lastly, Ted Cruz, a moron who denies climate change because apparently he knows more than experts in environmental science, and other fields. He is also adamant about repealing Obamacare and effectively taking health care away from millions of Americans, even though he himself takes advantage of Obamacare after his wife quit her job to help him run for president. This is a hard choice.

" so they can pander to minorities and coerce them into voting against their best interests. " Liberal policies seem to hurt minorities more than republican policies. It is kind of weird considering that minorities typically vote democrat.
briantheliberal says2015-05-12T09:04:16.3865206-05:00
Keep telling yourself that Mathgeekjoe. Last I checked, the poorest states with the most problems facing both whites and minorities are majority Republican. And despite voting Democrat more often, minorities still face the negative effects of Republican state and federal leadership. This has been proven actually. Republicans are all about protecting the "status quo" which in no way benefits minorities. It places them at a disadvantage. Making higher education less attainable, more expensive, increasing investments in prisons instead of public school education in urban communities, being against affirmative action despite the fact that minorities tend to face racial bias in education and in the job market, working to take away any government assistance they can get leaving their children unfed and uninsured - http://www.slate.com/articles/news_and_politics/politics/2014/05/democrats_are_good_for_minorities_minority_voters_are_making_a_rational.html - And quite honestly, we all know Republicans have a track record of being bigoted towards minorities even since the demographics of the Republican Party began shifting in the late 1960's. There is a reason why the majority of Republican voters of today are mostly white conservatives from the South. Many of them also poor, uneducated, and also voting against their best interest. Unfortunately, when they come to the realization that they themselves are being cheated, the Republicans politicians they blindly follow tell them to blame Democrats for everything. - http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2013/09/09/2587711/republican-whites-party/

First we have Ben Carson, a homophobic crazy who has know political knowledge. Then there's Ted Cruz, a climate change denier who insists that every Christian value must be a law in this country (Constitutional violation) and thinks he is the only worthy one. After going on and on, only non-crazy candidates are Rand and Hillary.

Let me add Bernie Sanders to my previous comment, didn't see him on here.
