  1. Wow, I had no idea there were that many people running for president! I knew of about 4 of them and that is it.

    1. Yes, Debbie, it takes some research to find out who is actually on the ballot each election cycle because the mainstream media(radio, television and print) only report on the top candidates and / or parties based upon polling percentages.


  2. I personally believe that if we do not vote for the Democrat or the Republican, we will be throwing our vote away. While I do not like either candidate, I do want to support the one who is willing to uphold the Constitution and appoint Supreme Court judges who will support the Constitution as written not as they wish it to be.

    God bless you friend!

    1. Hi Laura,

      This election cycle I am a "single issue" voter. My single issue: Supreme Court nominees.
      I mentioned in my previous post that if the Bill of Rights (1st 10 constitutional amendments) is not upheld as originally intended by our Founding Fathers, our nation will, very quickly, cease to be a Democratic Republic and EVERY citizen will, I believe within one generation, find themselves living under a tyrannical governing system.
