In just a few days the official voting will start. Next November we’ll (probably) know who won. There will be a lot of crazy shit in between.
I want to talk about what I want the next POTUS to do. Figuring out what I want narrows my choices of who I want to vote for.
Our nation is facing a laundry list of problems, and I have a Christmas list of solutions. But I’m realistic. I’m gonna ask Santa for something I might actually get.
One problem we have is the national debt. It’s already over 19 TRILLION DOLLARS and increases every single day. But that problem simply isn’t fixable right now because neither the politicians nor the voters want to fix it. One day the who thing will collapse and then we’ll have no choice, but until then we’ll keep kicking the can down the road.
We’re not going to fix our foreign policy mess in four years no matter who we elect. We’re not going to tame the federal bureaucracy either. The best we can hope for is some incremental progress, but I’m not going to hold my breath. Hercules couldn’t clean up Washington D.C.
But there is one pressing need that we can do something about. The public will is there. All it will take is a POTUS who is willing to try.
I am talking about illegal immigration.
We need to get control of our borders. Then we need to do something about the illegal immigrants who are already here. We need an immigration policy that will not lead to cultural suicide.
What candidates are willing to make immigration reform a real priority?
Hillary won’t do it. Neither will Jeb. We can’t trust Marco Rubio. Christie is a squish too. Bernie might, but there is that whole socialism thing.
I can think of only two candidates who have taken a hard line on immigration. I think I’ll vote for one of them.
What do you think?
