I am 40 years old, male, and live in New Hampshire. I am a single father of a wonderful 8 year old boy. His future is now weighing on my mind these days. I want like all parents want, what will be the best possible future for my son.
I have never really been into politics, know just the basics about politics, am a registered independent voter, but have never actually voted before. With all the hoop-la this year, I have decided that I will indeed cast a vote this year, I have been mulling over whom I should vote for and have been looking for opinions.
These are my view so far:
Donald Trump: Not the medias or anyones ideal choice for a candidate. Outspoken, not "politically correct", but often vilified by the media or anyone in Hollywood. Claims to be the candidate for change but is running under the GOP umbrella. No sure what to think of The Donald, I only watched a few episodes of the celebrity apprentice, but I kind of liked it.
Hillary Clinton: Never really liked her. Like i said was never into politics but remember her under Slick Willy's watch. For some reason, I didn't like her, and that was just my first impression just from seeing her on TV. Not sure what her real political achievements are but i know she has been in politics well after being First Lady, she was a NY senator, ran for the POTUS slot but Obama got it, SOS, now trying to be POTUS again. The name "Clinton" to me for some reason is almost like a crime family name. Throughout my years I have heard numerous theories regarding the Clintons but nothing seemed to stick, always reminded me of Teflon Don.
Johnson/Weld: No clue about theses guys other than Weld. Once i was at a Beanpot game at the old Boston Garden and a few seats over and rows back was then Governor Weld. Seemed like a down to earth guy drinking a beer and watching BC destroy Northeastern.
Anyhow, i really am torn of who to actually vote for. The first time i think i want to and there are no actual candidates who seem worthy enough to get my vote. Could I vote for the Clinton Dynasty, it seems as if its been them or the Bush's pulling the strings for decades now. Could I vote for the Donald? The media and all of Hollywood are telling me not to? But all of my relatives in Kentucky are telling me to vote for him. Or do I say eff it? And vote 3rd party?
I am looking for that one argument that solidifies my vote, whomever side it comes from...all opinions are welcome!!!

I thought Johnson/Weld was a good ticket at first. Then I found that Johnson supports open boarders and is for the TPP. Weld is not pro 2nd amendment.
Those three strikes are a deal breaker for me.
