It's still early, but there are a lot of candidates running for the Presidency. So, who do you support?

None...

Though I am happily awaiting the lunacy that will be the Republican Primaries.

I do believe it is Hillary's election to lose.

I agree. Especially about the clown car debates...

It doesn't matter who you vote for. The oligarchs' candidate wins every time. When the oligarchs win, the following loses:
The poor
The women
The disabled
The workers
The unemployed
The middle class
The gays
The sick
The military
The scientists
The minorities
The non-republicans
The religiously tolerant
The elderly
The children
The teachers
The uneducated
The list goes on and on

You only win if you're part of a long time white-bred rich family and you want your company's profits to expand and your taxes lowered.

Words of advice: Never vote republican. Deep down inside, they hate you if you're on that list. Stay away from corporate-friendly democrats and most importantly, watch out for where the big money comes from and who it's going to. It doesn't matter what they say to convince you to vote for them, it's the money and power they are really after. They are not interested in you nor the well-being of this country and its economy. They will bankrupt everything and everyone just to give it all to the wealthy.

Our infrastructure can crumble as long as the wealthy has air travel. We can all lose our jobs, homes, and money, but as long as the wealthy can manipulate the stocks somehow, they can keep their money coming without the need of consumers. Once they control the world in some one-world government plutocratic dystopia, we can all roll over and die for all they care.

No one, yet. Although I have convinced most of my relatives to vote for me as a "Write-In" candidate.

Bernie Sanders! I believe that if more politicians were like Bernie the world would be a better place.

I believe it will be a tea partier who will win this time. at least as a vice-presidential candidate, with jeb heading the ticket. the thought of this makes me wanna blow chunks. the reason I think this will happen is because the only time a democratic ticket lasted more than two terms in a row, was FDR 70 years ago. so it is nominally the GOP's "turn" unless they really screw up. Hillary, unfortunately, has not got a snowball's chance in hell.

I haven't ever voted for a president. In 2004 I did a None of the Above write-in, but the past two elections I couldn't be bothered with the hassle for such a futile gesture.

I'm considering registering to vote so I can vote for Bernie Sanders.

What do you mean when you use the word "socialist"?

In the general election if she's the candidate I will hold my nose and vote for her because the alternative would be terrible looking at the Republican field. Until that point I'm vehemently against her. Her and Bill are both true sociopaths, and I've been around enough sociopaths to know not to trust them.

that is why they call it "choosing the lesser of two evils."

The one who isn't an authoritarian d-bag.

No, not that one. The other one.

I don't know yet. As Aunt Blabby said, I suspect it will once again be a case of choosing the lesser of two evils.

It's too bad we don't have more choices that can add excitement like the recent UK elections. :D

I just saw a blurb on the news about mitt the Mormon and evander holyfield getting into the boxing ring together, for charity. mitt actually looks pretty fit! [slender and taut] but a pale shadow compared to holyfield. IMHO the recent GOP hopefuls make mitt look good in comparison.
