Manic Monday: Why should I vote for your candidate?

I'm trying something new on this blog:  devoting Mondays to politics, Wednesday to religion, and Fridays to family and other personal stuff.

Mondays are Manic Mondays, because politics have a mania about them . . . and because I like the sound of it. :-)

So, here's my topic for today's Manic Monday:

Why should I vote for your candidate? 

In looking up the names of the Presidential candidates, I discovered this site, which lists presidential candidates that are running or thinking of running for President of the United States.  I couldn't count the number of people that think that they are qualified to run the United States of America.

So, I'm limiting my question to the major candidates of the Republican and Democratic parties. 

I'm going to list them in alphabetical order and include their party affiliation:

Joe Biden (D) (has not announced yet but may announce soon)
Jeb Bush (R)
Ben Carson (R)
Lincoln Chaffee (D)
Chris Christie (R)
Hillary Clinton (D)
Ted Cruz (R)
Carly Fiorina (R)
James Gilmore (R)
Lindsay Graham (R)
Mike Huckabee (R)
Bobby Jindal (R)
John Kasich (R)
Martin O'Malley (D)
George Pataki (R)
Rand Paul (R)
Rick Perry (R)
Marco Rubio (R)
Bernie Sanders (D)
Rick Santorum (R)
Donald Trump (R)
Scott Walker (R)
Jim Webb (D)

Why should I vote for any of the above?

Just my .04, adjusted for inflation.


  1. I will most likely vote for the Republican nominee. Mainly because that party line best defines my convictions. I also am frightened at the thought of this country (what's left of it anyway) being led by Hillary Clinton. :)

  2. On the conservative side, there are a lot running who would do a good job. But as a conservative, we are wanting the American public to follow what is happening by reading about all of them. The uninformed voter just votes for whoever he or she is told to vote for. I am following everything and have about 4 favorites. But that is each voters job. Sorry.
