This will be the 10 president I have lived through, I have thoughts on what I would like but they all say stuff that I agree with......So help me out with who and a reason.

First, these are my beliefs and morals.

Since I am a man, I should have not right to tell a women what to do with her body, saying that I do believe that abortion is wrong unless its due to rape, incest, or medical.

2nd amendment, I believe it is everyone's right to bear arms, as long as they can prove that they are mentally capable to show that they understand what a weapon is and does, also I believe it is one way to keep the government in check.

Welfare, I was raised under welfare until my mother could find a job, I understand the hardships of those with little or nothing, but I also see that the system is being abused, and I believe that in todays day and age that drug testing those that receive welfare should be done, I look at it this way I work hard everyday for my paycheck and I have to take drug screening test to keep my job, so I believe the same should go for those that receive government assistance.

Privacy, I think the government has gotten to big for itself, and they are putting their noises in my business everyday, just leave me alone and let me enjoy my life, let me earn a income, don't tell me how to live my life, If I don't want insurance because I am cheap don't force me to get it, let me spend my money on things that make me happy.

Military Service, yes I spent 20 years on active duty, don't take my benefits away or scare me about what the other person is going to do, same goes with Social Security , why is every election they (politicians) want to scare the old folks about SS, Talk with my mother and SS did not get a cost of living raise, neither did any veteran that is disabled, retired, but congress and the senators did, ,most of us that earned benefits the legal way are not getting the same increases the rest of the government is getting.

Immigration and refugees, I have seen and lived through a few major scenarios concerning this, Vietnam, Cambodia, Mong , Cuba, Checks, Arabs, Somalians and now Syrians, with each case there are those that come here legally and want to better themselves, but I can recall many that came and committed crimes, to include murder, I believe that something needs to be done, I keep think about a friend that came here legally, did all the right things, received his citizenship, he never received any hand outs (money) and he is the one that is really made about the whole immigration thing going on right now. (by the way he is Mexican) In fact the county were I live they allowed Somalians in on war visa, guess what the crime rate jumped 87 % after they arrived.

Minimum wage, I started at Minimum wage if I recall it was (don't quote me) $1.95 at the time, it was a starter job, I better myself and work my way up the pay scale. I don't believe that the Minimum wage needs to be increased to $15 dollars and hour but maybe $9 a hour or so. To me Minimum wage is for young folks entering the job force and getting a work experience, not for living off of.

This is just the short list, but hopefully you can see were I stand, so who would be the best candidate for me and why?

thanks for the help

VOte with your Head and not your Heart.
The facts you stated are clear and I agree with.
The Constitution needs to be protected and most dear.
Ted Cruz, he is a constitutional scholar..so.

Trump I have been saying from the get go... is a Trojan Horse and will only tear apart the republican party and that has been his entire plan. Look at his position 1 to 2 years ago on the issue he touts now.
100% reversal on then all.. especially the 2nd amendment.

nuff said.
Choice is yours.... for now.

I agree but don't, and that is why I am asking for input, we all have changed our minds on things to include like the commercial on tv, never getting married, never having kids, never moving to suburbs ect, at one time I thought I was Democrat and then Republican and now Independent, who can you trust, I looked back at a few presidents and it was interesting on who was not a Politian when they got elected, FDR was Democrat and Eisenhower was Republican but neither of them were Politian's or lawyers prior to running for a public office.

Here's a quiz that helps you identify which candidate you align yourself with based upon your stance on the issues. I posted this quiz about 5 months ago. Give it a shot and see what your results are, it may surprise you! Here's the link...

Oh yay. 79% agreement with Trump, 74% with Sanders. Not sure what to think of that.

I'd suggest the quiz that WeRpeons suggested. Let us know your results...if you're comfortable with that.

I don't care who you vote for, as long as you vote.

Whoever you vote for, just remember that our corrupt Congress does the spending and they regularly waste money and often make it disappear. And remember, too, there is no oversight nor accountability.

Ted Cruz is literally hated by all his colleagues and his entire platform is built upon fear. There are many pictures of him kissing his wife and daughter where you can visibly se they are disgusted by him, no lie...

If a man is hated by his own party and repulses the women in his life I would say he certainly should not be the most powerful man in the world.

I got lazy & bored with the last half of the quiz. Maybe if I'd answered more thoroughly I would have had different results.

Yes, that's what I'm going to keep telling myself. I will no doubt sleep better at night.

Took that quiz, and I'm well over fifty percent with ever one of them, save for Bloomberg...apparently he and I would disagree on the color of the sky, or whether water is wet or dry.

Cruz was number one, with the Donald second...--I have officially scared myself.

87% Bernie.

Take the 'extended questions' and be sure to click 'other stances' before checking yes/no.

www.kickthemallout.com... the powers-that-be will do their best to fixate everyone's attention on the totally controlled presidential race.
Most everyone will ignore the heart of the problem, the Congress and become caught up in the presidential circus

As a military vet you are sworn to protect this nation and the Constitution. There are only one or two people that know the Constitution and will follow it so I would suggest you do some research and vote for them.

ETA: I was surprised by my quiz result...

I side with Donald Trump on most 2016 Presidential Election issue.
