How come nobody is talking about Kasich? He is our best bet.

Just solid well articulated and intelligent ideas that will work, with a demonstrated track record in Ohio that he can do it again for our country on a national scale. He may not be a reality T.V. star or media darling but he is, by far, the best candidate running for the office today. I therefore enthusiastically endorse Gov. Kasich of Ohio for the Presidency of the United States!

Not so! At a time like this, I feel that we need a leader who is tried & true, familiar & experienced in the most important aspects of government that is so badly needed at this time to build up a weakened America. We must build strong bridges with tight bonds with as many allies that we can gather.

Countries today need to form a strong coalition with us & we need to have each other's backs. The thinking is, if it can happen "there", it can happen here.

John Kasich has the intelligence, knowledge, leadership, diplomatic skills & the years of experience in so many areas of government. He will unify the country & work well with other leaders to help make us & the world a safer place.

This is not a time to experiment with an unknown candidate that does not have a full understanding of government, our constitution, our 14 amendments & an excellent knowedge of history. Why? "HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF"!

We cannot rely on a candidate who impulsive, bull headed, hypocritical, feels that they are above the law etc.

Clearly. ATS is still debating who's better or worse in the election. When will everyone finally realize that it's a sham that makes no difference? Grow up ATS. And OP you're right maybe he should. Equal amount on television time perhaps, but it doesn't matter. Trump will be president and it's doubtful there will be much change, but if under anyone, under him.

You just couldn't be more wrong. Trump would be an unmitigated disaster for America!!

Kasich is a poster boy for what is wrong with America and the Republican party as a whole.

- Served over a decade in office on the Gov teat
- Signed NAFTA which crippled America's manufacturing base
- worked for Lehman Brothers up until the 2008 collapse
- Went back into politics
- Supports TPP
-Supports amnesty

He uses the money Ohio brings in from fracking to offset losses and claims that the economy is great and jobs are wonderful (if fracking goes away Ohio becomes Detroit). He is the epitome of the "Washington Revolving Door" system that anyone with sense would be against.

He may be too old (I'm sorry):
-He somehow thinks he is running for President of Ohio and doesn't understand that there is an entire country involved in this election
- he wants to run the Country but cannot figure out how to operate a voting machine (anyone see him cast his ballot this morning)
- He says this morning that he "hasn't paid any attention to people running against him until now". Seriously?

He's make a fantastic addition to the Democrat ticket

Thank you for sharing. Admittedly, I moved my children from Idaho to Michigan. Day 2, the guidance counselor called me in. She admitted my kids needed to go to private or be homeschooled. My children were upset at the students disrespect towards teachers, sexual and drug innuendos from their fellow classmates. It was an extreme upside down world for them. Naturally private schools in the area were backlisted to the extreme, I was forced to learn how to homeschool my children!

That being said...I am still not an extreme conservative nor are my children. Cruz really is at the bottom of my list! I keep trying to like him, but he really turns my guts as too extreme. I am a moderate. I never said I agreed 100% with Kasich. Actually, he is only the 50% level. Honestly, I tend to agree with Bernie more than anyone, only...he is way before his time like Carter was. America is not ready. Logically, I looked back to my GOP roots and find that I can honestly look in the mirror at myself for voting for Kasich.

Come general election? Naturally, things can dramatically between now and November, but I will still make a moderate rather than an extreme decision. It is not all about me, but my daughters and grandsons!

I actually like some of his ideas. I think If I had a choice, I'd pick Sanders first, Kasich second of all the candidates we have left. I realize Kasich isn't perfect and I have some reservations but I think he's better than Clinton, Cruz, Trump and Rubio.

A mental health registry is like a no fly list. How does one get on it? How does one get off of it?



You get on one by being mentally diagnosed with potentially harmful disorder that can render your mind unstable.

His focus for gun control is to get the mentally ill registered, and makes sense. Most mass shootings are the result of a mentilly ill person, not the gun. As we all know. 



-Registering mentally ill is first priority in gun control. (Nov 2015) 
-2nd Amendment advocate: NRA rating changed from "F" to "A". (Aug 2015) 
-Keep existing restrictions, but tighten up on terrorist guns. (Nov 1996) 
-Cool off before making new gun laws after Littleton. (May 1999) 
-More parenting better than more gun laws. (May 1999) 
-Voted YES on decreasing gun waiting period from 3 days to 1. (Jun 1999) 
Opposes restrictions on the right to bear arms. (Aug 2010




This is what I'm talking about. Kasich wants to register those who are deemed "mentally ill" to prevent them from getting guns. That is an unconstitutional infringement of the 2nd Amendment.

Who determines mental illness? A doctor? What if the doctor is wrong? Its happened before. Homosexuality was once considered mental illness.


The majority of mass shooters are mentally unstable.

So yeah, lets take guns from them.

Kinda like how we took guns from felons....

I disagree as to Sanders as I'm certain his socialistic policies would smother the nation in debt and cause the folks who do the hiring in our country to lay off the very people Sanders wants to help the most when corporations and small businesses find a diminution of their bottom line profits. Tax and spend and income redistribution kills the entrepreneurial spirit upon which our country was built by the New England Merchants and our founding fathers more than 200 years ago. Socialism may work elsewhere but it won't work in our country!

Kasich is clearly the best candidate out there for President and Marco Rubio would make an excellent choice for VEEP on a ticket led by Kasich. That ticket would defeat the dishonest Clinton.

Cruz would be almost as poor a choice for the office (as would be the dictator, Trump), given the said Cruz's plans to increase the taxes on middle class seniors and to slap a 19 per cent Federal Sales Tax on the country to make up the revenue short fall that will result from his flat tax.

I guess that is why I am more moderate in my stances. Everyone realizes mentally Ill should not have access to guns, but yes, as in Kalamazoo, Michigan with that Über killer recently shows that the most ill does go unnoticed as does the felons. Honestly, to be an armed felon is the same as a mental illness! They snap and innocents suffer.

What is the answer? Personally, I have to admit it is probably the disconnect of our families and communities that is creating this byproduct of violence. Government laws will never stop this...only local communities coming together will ever make an impact.

I tend to agree. We must preserve the second amendment but a greater effort in the local communities is of vital importance with regard to the issue of gun control. Greater local community involvement, by the way, was advocated by Governor Kasich at the last Republican Party debate.

As a left leaning independent, Kassich is the only republican candidate I could vote for, especially against Hillary. Bernie, the jury is still out, I like a lot of what he has to say, but not sure how it would work in reality.

I just don't think Kasich will make it to the finish line though, even if he pulls of a couple of upsets here. Rubio might stay in if he wins Florida, but he's not really in it either.

So realistically, I think our only choices are Sanders, Clinton, Trump and Cruz... If you had to pick one of those 4, who would it be?

Kasich is the best choice by far for President. But Sanders is totally unacceptable in my opinion, as his policies of robbing the rich to give to the poor will bankrupt the nation and lead to recession due to the high unemployment that will result when the stock market craters and small business cannot keep going. Doesn't Sanders realize that diminishing the bottom line of the folks who do the hiring in America leads to the loss of employment among those who work for them?

None of the above, as the four you list constitute the four plagues of America. But that having been said, I do still hold out the hope that Kasich wins the Ohio winner takes all primary and that Rubio wins the winner takes all Florida primary!
