I will admit it right now. I will vote for Bernie Sanders if Jeb Bush or Chris Christe are the Republican nominee for President. Why? Because despite my major philosophical differences with comrade Bernie; I would rather vote for a decent human being than Jeb and Chris.

My nightmare scenario would be Hilary Vs. Jeb or Chris as my conscience would not allow me to vote for any of those horrible human beings.

Anyway, I still don't know who I am voting for, but I hope one of the major parties can come up with a palatable candidate.

Here's hoping we shake things up in 2016!

I'll probably be writing in Gumby again.
I'll give my vote to Bernie if he makes the ticket.
My faith in Democracy is about the size of my faith in unicorns.

Now if Carson, who is gaining some ground too, makes it is that where your vote will go over Bernie?

I actually don't mind Carson much, seems rather moderate and sensible.

Possible I would vote for him if Hill dog gets the nod.

I would vote for Trump, Carson and Fiorina over Bernie. All three of them are political outsiders and that is what this country needs.

While I'm sure that some people may disagree with Carson's stance on the issues, there are a lot of ignorant, uneducated, racist Democrats who just can't stand the idea of an African American man as President.

I had to wait eight years to post that line.

And you have every right to say that because it is a possibility.

Now do I get to call you a race baiter for it?

What if it's Trump or Cruz or Huckabee or Fiorina or Paul or Kasich or Graham or Santorum or Rubio or Carson or Walker or Pataki?

Eh, go for it. I'll probably be called worse by a waitress tonight at the pool hall.

I haven't shot some pool in a while, that sounds like a good idea.

Was this a bait and switch?

You had me worried!

Ugh Trump.
Why do we want a guy that has proven nothing but being able to piss people off as president?

At least Fiorina and Carson have some sort of chance at reasonable foreign policy.

Trump is to busy bad mouthing everyone he says he is going to get along with.

Thank you.
I haven't been a cheerleader, but, no one else comes close. I have to change my party affiliation here in PA. But I'll do what I need to to vote for the old guy.

I diverge from most of them on key issues so I hope it doesn't come to that, but I do like Rand Paul. At this point you are basically having me choose among career politicians and Bernie who is a career politician. Not ideal since Bernie would attack our wallet and the others would attack some personal liberties.

I will vote for bernie Sanders too, if he is the nominee. I don't like the idea of Jeb, as a third Bush would be too much. But Jeb is one of a couple on the GOP side that doesn't seem insane and has intelligence.

I don't think Bernie wants to attack our wallets. Unless you are worth more than 20 million dollars. If you are, I apologize.

Fiorina is not a political outsider. Sure, the American people aren't familiar with her, but she grew up with, and is in the same social circle as the politicians she is a supposedly an outsider from. She has a lot of behind the scenes connection which is my biggest concern with her.

Daddy was the Deputy Attorney General of the United States of America under Nixon. She was an adviser to John McCain, head of the CIA's External Advisory Board and is in tight with the Koch brothers and has received substantial financial backing from them.

I am having you choose?? Nonsense.

I hate the two-party status quo just as much as you do......

Erm, well, ALL of them (with the exception of Rand Paul) would all ATTACK the Middle East. And Fiorina said she wouldn't even talk to Putin!!!!

Cruz and Huckabee (and others) are OPENLY pushing theocracy. War!!! More war!!!!

Good God!! Dude - you and I have been (in my experience) learning to understand one another - and like I said, I hate the status quo as well.

That is why - that is WHY I would vote for Bernie because he wants what is BEST for this country. For all of its citizens.
