So what rules, guidelines, and methods should someone use when researching and discerning between Presidential Candidates? Have any of you voted in a presidential election before? How did you make your decision? How should someone make such a decision? What mattered to you?

Strong on Defense, Pro America, Conservative over liberal leftist, socialist economic policies, anti illegal immigration, anti commie anti Cuban commies as it has been practiced all over the world, Pro Israel and the Jewish People.

I would pick someone that has priorities for welfare, healthcare and education, someone who can be destined to be a great and influential political leader, knowing when to give in to pressure or whento stand ground, someone who understands the rhetoric of both the left and right and seamlessly combined the into a center. A guy that also knows the plight of the minority and the voice of the majority and finds a compromise that can make most people happy. A person who can balance their country with world priorities. Understanding of economic and military strategies and knowing when to use them. Someone who picks the best option for every single aspect of the nation by listening to everyone.

THAT is my president.

Health care: Does this candidate believe that health care is a right and does this candidate intend to push for single-payer as soon as they take office?

Foreign policy: Will this candidate refuse to bow to the military industrial complex's demand to wage imperialist wars? Can this candidate be counted on to not start a war with Iran, Venezuela, or any other country that hasn't attacked us? Will this candidate cut off financial and military aid to Saudi Arabia's genocide in Yemen?

Supreme Court: Will this candidate only nominate judges who would uphold reproductive rights and overturn Citizens United?

Drugs: Will this candidate try to have cannabis removed from schedule 1, will they respect the rights of states that have legalized cannabis, will they refuse to sign any bill which increases sentences for personal drug possession? Will their Attorney General not persecute state and city officials who implement harm reduction policies like safe injection sites?

Net Neutrality: Will this candidate make an effort to restore net neutrality?

Wages: Will this candidate make an effort to increase the federal minimum wage?

Immigration: Will this candidate reverse the new detention and family separation policies implemented under Trump?

Environment: Does this candidate recognize that climate change is an emergency and that we have to take immediate action to mitigate the damage?


I require a yes to all of these questions. That's my 'purity test', though I wouldn't call it that myself, I call it the most meagre standards possible for earning my vote.

How about spinning a roulette? Each candidate has a number. Or in two party system... black is for democrats, red is for republicans. Or, if ya' don't like roulette, one can roll good ol' dice. Each candidate has his number. A candidate map (Candidate's birthplace on US map) and a dart could do the trick too.

I have many ideas.

Why is this important for the president of a nation that is neither Israel or Jewish in nature?

I have no plan on voting in the next election because both parties have terrible ideas and the few terrible ideas they'll actually enact (their worst ones) are the ones their corporate donors want, like open borders, foreign wars overseas and tax cuts for the wealthy. I know that our government is just a tyranny with extra steps. I'm not crazy enough to take part in this system that takes your life away

Oh you mean the country that stole our nuclear secrets and sank the USS Liberty, and drains us of money every year to use to set up illegal settlements and blow up civilians while our homeless vets wallow in skid row?

I wish one of our presidents had the balls to tell Israel to shove it for once. We're way too nice to them. If I had it my way, i'd tell them to ask God to save them cause I'm not.

lol, I see who you support, but as I posted too you, I respect your right to your views on any issues and your right to post them.

I am a Proud Conservative Republican fellow Latino or Hispanic supporter of President Trump.
