The polls are now open and today I will be voting for John Kasich.
It’s not that I don’t side with Donald Trump on a lot of issues, I just feel better connected to John Kasich, and of the three remaining candidates I have the least in common with Ted Cruz’s proposed policies.
John Kasich holds similar views to me on lots of things, including and not limited to:
- Domestic policies (such as the Patriot Act and Social Security)
His proposal was designed to ensure solvency without raising the retirement age or increasing payroll.
- Economical Issues (such as welfare rules and the Federal Reserve)
When somebody says this is an attack on the poor, frankly I don’t get that,” Kasich told reporters. “First of all, the public does pay the benefit. But secondly, we want the person who might be on the drugs to get off the drugs. We have a major drug problem.
- Foreign Policy (such as the war on ISIS and Guantanamo)
“Mark my words … at some point it will require boots on the ground from the world to be able to deal with this problem.”
- Social Issues (such as same sex marriage and health insurance provisions)
“God gives me unconditional love. I’m going to give it to my family and my friends and the people around me.”
“We can seal that border and anyone else who gets over, we send them back,” he said of undocumented immigrants arriving from Mexico. “And then we’ve got to look at broader immigration reform because some people are waiting in line 25 years” to come to the U.S. legally.
- Elections (such as Voter ID laws)
Among Kasich’s endorsements are:
– Former NY Governor George Pataki
– Former CA Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger
– Former NH Senator John Sununu (who happens to follow me on Twitter)
– Former FL Rep. Joe Scarborough
– Former Speaker of the House John Boehner
– The New York Times, Chicago Sun-Times, New York Daily News, Boston Globe, Barron’s
– Quicken Loans founder Dan Gilbert
– Ronald Reagan’s son, Michael Reagan
But, regardless who you vote for, you should go out and vote…it’s your right as an American, and you should take advantage of it.
And in my opinion, you have no voice to complain about who wins if you didn’t at least vote for someone.
