OK, if you’re in New York & a Democrat, you probably expect that I’m going to ask you to vote for Bernie Sanders. I think it’s pretty clear where I stand on that. Hillary seems awfully willing to start wars without Congressional authority, & I naturally prefer Bernie Sanders.
But what if you’re a Republican? I haven’t talked about this much. I think…I think John Kasich is a reasonably sane man. He seems very Roman Catholic, very “pro-life;” those aren’t things I identify with myself. But he seems to have his head on his shoulders.
Trump & Cruz, on the other hand, are full of hubris.
Trump wants to build a useless wall on the southern border. This will stop exactly no one from smuggling into the country, but will ruin the value of people’s land on the border, and harm wildlife. He’s a cocky amateur in over his head.
Cruz is a giant egomaniac who may be a dangerous religious fanatic. He’s a creepy Holy Roller whose wife says will “reveal the face of God.” I think we can take it as given that Ted Cruz is an apocalyptically bad risk.
So, we have a probably sane man, a probable fool, and a probable lunatic. I would pick Kasich.
Anyway, vote your own consciences. (Unless your conscience is telling you to vote for Ted Cruz, because then it’s just wrong.)
