Want to participate in this forum yourself? It’s easy. Just fill out answers to the questions in bold (below) and email them to us along with a headshot.
VOTER VOICES: MICHELLE WILES
Name: Michelle Wiles
Occupation: Sales Manager and Home Educator
Hometown: Duncan, S.C.
I am … a person who loves America and the Constitution.
My top issue is … government debt. We cannot survive as a country if government continues its irresponsible, unsustainable spending. I do not believe the government knows what is best for us when it comes to programs and expenditures. I believe in personal responsibility. I believe in entrepreneurship – it is what made America. Government does not create jobs, it sucks America dry. I have children and the thought of what we are doing to them and what kind of country we will leave them … is frightening.
Another issue that matters to me is … national security. Our country’s vulnerability is unbelievable to me. The greatest, mightiest, and most exceptional country in the world has a president who is simply not willing to stand and defend it.
My 2016 choice is … Senator Ted Cruz. The fact that he has called president Obama the “Lawless Imperator” speaks volumes. To speak the truth and not be afraid of is courageous. Ted Cruz is pro-life and supports personhood. He has vowed to repeal Obamacare. He is pro Second Amendment and opposes the United Nations’ Arms Trade Treaty. He supports our military. He is against Obama’s illegal amnesty and is for defunding amnesty – he supports securing our borders. He opposes Obama’s dangerous “deal” with Iran. He loves our country and he isn’t afraid of the establishment. Finally, I have looked him straight in the eyes, and I trust him.
In the 2012 primary, I voted for … Newt Gingrich because I felt like he could lead this country back to the principles of Ronald Reagan.
I believe America’s future is … advancing towards its best days. We may go through a lot of turmoil and changes but in the end God wins.
The next president needs to … change everything Obama has done. This country, the best country in the world, is not socialist by design and his attempts to turn it into a socialist nation are hurting consumers, businesspeople and taxpayers.

I stopped reading after…
“In the 2012 primary, I voted for … Newt Gingrich “
TBG *tried* to stop earlier…but like the “Big One” at Daytona or Talledega… just couldn’t resist viewing the whole thing….

“In the 2012 primary, I voted for … Newt Gingrich because I felt like he could lead this country back to the principles of Ronald Reagan.”
Because of tin-foil hat wearing loony birds like you, Ronald Reagan could not win a GOP Primary today. You would call him, wait for it, a …………RINO!
B-but she looked Cruz IN THE EYE, Chief!
I’ll bet Cruz was staring at her tits in return.
Firstly, Obama is nowhere near the worst president we’ve ever had. Is he the best? No. But he’s not a “lawless imperator.” Secondly, I think we’re going in the wrong direction with focus on national security, and becoming a nanny state. We don’t need to be watched 24/7 because that somehow makes us all guilty and suspect of treason. Also, we’re focusing too much on national debt, and not where we’re actually spending our money. A costly $53 billion a year drug war, the trillions of dollars we’ve spent on the war on terror, and other major costly offensive campaigns are why we’re in so much more debt. We need to focus more on infrastructure, education, getting people jobs, not letting the banks screw us over when we can’t afford the debt that it costs to go to college. We have a standard of living that is too high for what people actually make, and many people living beyond their means in order to survive. Nobody can afford all this debt, live happy lives, and feel at peace with what the government is doing. It doesn’t matter who becomes president because in the end nothing changes. We’re at a crux in this nation. Our senate doesn’t care about us, our government is suspicious of us, we’ve got rampant corruption on all fronts (federal, state, local) and we’re no closer to fixing those issues than any other issue. So, once we can get money out of politics and actually begin to focus on the issues, then we can maybe start working on our issues. Also, why does God have to be brought into all of these issues? When was God and government ever a good thing? We live in a secular nation for a reason, and we don’t mix government and God for a reason. I don’t understand why your focus on God is so much more important than what’s good for the majority of individuals in this country.
She appears to have a nice rack, but that perm, and the Blythewood claw thing she has those bangs doing has got to go.

“Mississippi Mall Hair” is what one feisty Mizzippi belle told me it was called.
I wonder what she thinks about Mitch McConnell’s smackdown of her BFF Ted Cruz ?
Is this the first “Voter Voice”? I must be a fricking Oracle or something. When Will first put this out there, I thought that very moment that the “VV” would be a woman, easy on the eyes, and be in Real Estate (or some type of sales) or Stay at home, homeschooling Mom with a religious bend. Ding ding ding ding, what did I win? Most of us who post opinions here do so anonymously due to our work positions and the petty “politics of personal destruction” that the hardcore on both sides play these days. If anyone has noticed I’m capable of up voting those with whom I seldom can agree but do so because I appreciate hearing everyone’s opinions if they do so without personal attacks. Congrats Michelle for your Voter Voice entry…….Newt Gingrich?,,,,,Sheesh.
We may go through a lot of turmoil and changes but in the end God wins.
If true, why is it that we should vote for Cruz (or at all), then?
Because it would please God in the end?
You know, that proverb, “Place your faith in your fellow man over me while on Earth.”
“Home Educator”….kind of says it all really.
Throw in Newt and Cruz….and we’re home free.
“Michelle, my belle,
This ain’t going well…”
The article I posted below… you switched to Donald Trump. So, now you have to change your choice from Ted Cruz to Trump.
Good choice, I love Trump too.
