As I See It

More choices needed at the ballot box



In just under one year from now, voters across the United States will cast their ballots for President. And things will look remarkably the same as they did four years ago. Once again, it appears that Joe Biden and Donald Trump will be their party’s nominees. Which makes us wonder, isn’t there anyone else who wants to be President of the United States. Sure, there are other candidates. But none seem to have resonated with voters. Trump seems to be gaining in popularity, even as he is mired in legal woes, fighting for control of his empire and brand and trying to remain on the ballot in some key states. It is going to be hard for him to campaign from inside a courtroom, but he seems to be doing his best. Meanwhile, democrats have Joe Biden, but even they wish they had another choice. At 80, Biden is the oldest U.S. President and would be 86 at the end of his second term. Some experts are suggesting Biden should drop out of the race, but who would take his place? So once again it appears the contest will be between Biden and Trump, with America seemingly split right down the middle once again. It seems when it comes to presidential politics, the more things change, the more they stay the same.

    The Imperial lying Joe Biden should not be the next President of the United States especially if the walking disaster Kamala Harris is on the ballot.
    The world is getting more dangerous by the moment and we better wake up to that fact and make sure that whoever is elected( President, House, and Senate respond accordingly.
    The Republicans should have told Trump you are not wanted and your Presidency would be a disaster as well.The problem with both Trump and Biden is their egos are so large that they want there way.
    Would we have gotten trump in the first place if the media had not been extremely biased. You can trace the eventual rise of Hitler back to the Treaty of Versailles but I am not giving a history lesson today. Trump is the by product of so many people fed up with having a way of life they do not like jammed down their throat and then told to like it.
    The whole gay pride flag in classrooms issue is an example of this and I can go on and on. I do not care how your life your life as long as you are not breaking the law of jamming your lifestyle down my throat and telling to me to like or lump it.

    Long story made short: only now that Slo-Joe is trailing Trump and other Republicans, Dems are in panic mode and Slo-Joe needs to be replaced.

    No mention above of Slo-Joe’s destructive policies…inflation, war(s), wide-open borders, unaffordable autos, runaway govt debt, and on and on.

    Meanwhile, the Dems refuse to recognize RFK, Jr. as a candidate at all, thereby sabotaging his candidacy. Dem corruption out of the Hillary does Bernie playbook.
