2016: Indecision Rules

We gotta admit.  We’re flummoxed …

At this point during the 2012 presidential election cycle, we’d already made our “First in the South” endorsement (supporting the candidacy of then-U.S. Rep. Ron Paul).  That was an easy choice, as none of the other “Republican” candidates came anywhere close to aligning with our pro-freedom, pro-free market views.

Hell, when liberal “Republican” Mitt Romney won the GOP nomination, we endorsed Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson in the general election.

This year things are a bit different …

To be honest: We fully expected to be lending our imprimatur to Paul’s son – U.S. Senator Rand Paul – but that obviously isn’t happening.  And it’s clear no true supporter of freedom and free markets could ever embrace a candidate like Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Marco Rubio or Rick Santorum.

That leaves us deciding between billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas or former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

Do we like those options?  Yes and no …

While there’s no clear-cut favorite for us in the current GOP field, we’re far more pleased with these options than the ones we were presented with four years ago … although that’s not exactly saying a lot when you stop and think about it.

Obviously we’re gratified to see Trump upending the “Republican” primary process, we just haven’t decided yet whether that in and of itself is cause for endorsing his bid.

We shall see …

Oh well, while we ponder our endorsement (and yes … endorsements are like a certain other thing that everyone has) we were wondering: Where are you on the presidential race? Have you made your choice yet?

Vote in our poll (below) and let us know …

The kiss of death aka the Sic Willie endorsement.

"Republican" December 18, 2015 at 9:03 am

Willie isn’t a “Republican” though, even if he can’t figure out which “Republican” he wants to vote for.

Tazmaniac December 17, 2015 at 3:58 pm

Any of those three are still the better option compared most anything the Ds are putting up. Take away the gun control and global warming nuttery and O’Malley doesn’t seem that bad. I would go out on foot in a blinding snow storm 5 miles uphill both ways to vote for Tinkerbell Graham if Hillary is the other choice.

erneba December 17, 2015 at 4:16 pm

Good choice… I could go for any of those three over Hillary. You could throw in Rubio in fourth place. Truthfully, any of them over Hillary, including Tinkerbell.

O’Malley? WTF dumbass!!! LMAO!!! You just moved ahead of ‘vicupstate’ for FitsNews Prognosticating Clown of the Year!

Unfortunately, in the state O’Malley governed for eight years, he gave deserving Marylanders anything but a state government that worked. Today, Marylanders endure the real O’Malley legacy: higher taxes, pink slips, process servers, tax liens, and foreclosures.

Why Aren't You Employed? December 18, 2015 at 8:32 am

Pogo, please stop taking taxpayer dollars through welfare. With all the time spent here you could spend it instead on something productive.

FREE PETE is employed and does very well.That reaaly seems to bother you freeloaders that have to clock in and clock out everyday and deal with a boss man.

I am the BOSS! :)

Pogo/Grand T or whatever you are calling yourself these days, you might want to look up the definition of prognosticating. You obviously don’t know what it means.

PattiAnn December 17, 2015 at 4:41 pm

Actually you could, for a change, back a winner. Clinton has this election locked up.
Clinton/Sanders 2016 !!!!

Slartibartfast December 17, 2015 at 4:56 pm

Saying Hillary Clinton is a winner is like saying Stalin was a winner. And winning would have to be defined as having killed your major impediments.

Yup December 17, 2015 at 5:04 pm

It’s going to be one or the other. No doubt about that!

But her regret was that she couldn’t draw Section 8 and unemployment and vote for Obama again !!!

Trump on the SC Confederate Flag – “I think they should put it in the museum and let it go,” Trump said of the flag during an appearance at his new golf course in the Washington, D.C. suburbs. “Respect whatever it is you have to respect, because it was a point in time, and put it in a museum. But I would take it down. Yes.”

On the contrary, the wide range of shitty Republicans has left me pretty decided on voting for someone who isn’t Republican.

Just like the rest of the media, you need Trump for the ratings.
