it's too late for America!

Current CP Opinion:
|1. Donald Trump
|Political correctness has been killing our
country. What needs to be said has not
been said for the fear of offending someone, and
it has been getting worse and worse. Bullsh!t
!!! It used to be that everyone said what
they wanted to say. If someone didn't like
what was said, they disputed it, ignored it, or
punched the person in the mouth. Now it's
a federal crime, in many cases, to exercise
freedom of speech. Donald Trump has not
only said what he wants to say, he has utterly
killed the political correctness crap.
is a proven business man who will run the
country like the business it is. He will
undoubtedly surround himself with political
appointees who are the best and brightest in
their fields, unlike the current worthless
administration who made many appointments based
on who donated to his political campaign.
Trump is a proven, strong leader who has
accomplished many impressive things outside of
politics. If he is elected, I expect he will get
right to work and do just that for America.
Trump is also a strong supporter of the
When it comes to debating Hillary Clinton,
Trump strikes me as the best equipped to handle
the task for these (among other) reasons:
- Donald Trump isn't afraid to say what
needs to be said and slam Hillary for her
pathetic record, foreign policy disasters,
and her unethical or illegal activities
(i.e., classified emails on her private
- Donald Trump is quick on the draw with
- The main stream media has been unable to
hit Donald Trump with anything that hasn't
made his poll numbers increase.
- If Hillary plays the phony "War on
Women" card, you can count on Donald Trump
to play the "Bill Clinton" card.
- Donald Trump has a long history of major
- Donald Trump is educated and very
There are times when I have wished that Trump
had not said a few things, but he certainly has
the stones to say them.
|2. Ted Cruz
|Ted Cruz would have been my second pick based on his
disregard for political correctness and his
views on conservative principles. His past views
on illegal immigration appear to be somewhat
cloudy and may have changed. He is a strong
supporter of the second amendment.
find it hard to believe that Ted Cruz would have
been able to come close to beating Hillary
Clinton. After listening to his annoying voice
for an hour, I felt like I had been on the phone
with Porky Pig. "I'm the only one who has
beat Donald Twump, and I'm the only one who can
beat Donald Twump." Well, he couldn't and he
didn't. Nor could he get the southern
evangelical Christian votes that all the experts
said were a sure thing for him. He never would
have garnished large numbers of democrat and
independent votes needed to win a general
election by proclaiming "I'm going to unite the
country around a conservative message."
Ted Cruz touted his record in Washington as
fighting this and that, but Britt Hume (Fox
News) had the right quote in 2015: "Ted Cruz
going on about all the fights he has led in
Washington. Never mentions the number of fights
he won. The answer is none."
|3. Marco Rubio
|Rubio is a close third to Ted Cruz, but
comes off to me as being rehearsed in his
speeches. His past views on illegal
immigration also appear to be somewhat cloudy
and may have changed. I worry he has enough
capacity to out-debate Hillary Clinton.
|4. Chris Christie
|Christie would likely be a strong leader and
says what he wants to say, for the most part.
Nothwithstanding his being a republican, he is
still from liberal New Jersey. His past
performance on the second amendment is
questionable. He would, however, be a strong
leader. Bridgegate will come back to haunt him.
|5. Dr. Ben Carson
|Dr. Carson is a decent man with the best of
intentions for America and he has some great
ideas. Unfortunately, he has recently
demonstrated some weaknesses in national defense
and foreign policy issues and, in my opinion,
didn't handle questions that well. He is too
soft-spoken to get far in politics.
|6. Carly Fiorina
|Ms. Fiorina has good business skills and
would probably do a good job as President. She
would probably surround herself with competent
I think her record as a
Hewlett-Packard CEO has been over-scrutinized.
Sometimes, when you manage a company,
reorganizations have to be done and jobs need to
be cut. It's unfortunate, but it has to
happen in some cases to keep companies solvent.
|7. Rand Paul
|Rand Paul has some of the best conservative
ideas. I am totally on board with his point of
view that we should stop arming our enemies. It
often seems that when we arm a group of muslims,
either they lose and the weapons fall into the
hands of radicals, or they win and turn against
America with those weapons later - a lose-lose
I don't agree with Rand Paul's level
of isolationism. If we don't fight terrorism
where terrorists live, we will be rooting them
out in America, intermingled with our own
citizens and many more people will die trying to
|8. Mike Huckabee
|Huckabee is a good man, but I think his
popularity has peaked and fallen.
|9. Jeb Bush
|Bush has been a whiner, "low energy" and is
obviously an establishment candidate. Many
people will shy away from the Bush name because
of their dissatisfaction with George W. Bush's
presidency. If you want the same election
results as Romney and McCain, he's your guy in
|10. Rick Santorum
|Rick Santorum is probably one of the most
authentic candidates for Christian principles,
but he is likely unelectable.
|11. John Kasich
|The frequent mouth tic and nasty tone of
voice is making John Kasich look deranged and
angry. I used to really like this guy. He's not
