    The offerings of both parties gave me the impression of them “scraping the bottom of the barrel”. Methinks it’s time to look elsewhere. I recall, in my youth, a DC Comics Legion of Superheroes issue where the leader of a Government, in the far future, is drafted rather than elected. Perhaps the representatives should be done the same way.

    Their petty fighting “for the party” and not for the good of the people of the U.S. have made me sick of the lot of them.

    Trump strikes me as a playground bully whose intelligence is at an inverse ratio to his implied wealth.

    Clinton is a dominatrix who MIGHT know the job, but abuses the help. The very people she needs to get the job done.

    Cruz just keeps burning bridges (Cue the Mike Curb Congregation Song). I’m inclined to agree that he will never have a chance at being president. Even IF the truth of his birth certificate is ever resolved.

    I might have stomached Sanders. But getting the microphone taken out of his hands at that one political rally, and not doing anything to get it back, lost him some major points.
