Who will be the next President??

This subject really scares me. When was the last time you voted in a presidential election BECAUSE you WANTED that candidate to win as opposed to voting for a candidate because they were the lesser of two evils? Just prior to the last presidential election, I took an internet quiz which was allegedly designed to help me make a choice. It said that Bush was closest to my way of thinking followed by Dennis Kucinich. That made me a bit nervous because first I didn't even know who Kucinich was at the time and when I found out that he was a liberal democrat I was not happy.

Not that I have anything against Democrats per se. In fact, I would probably classify myself as a Reagan Democrat because where as the Democrats of the last few decades do not seem to believe in a strong national defense, I do. The democrats of the past that I admire are Harry Truman and to some extent FDR, although in many ways, he was too liberal for me. At least he knew how to fight for his country.

But look at the current crop of people out there now. I do not trust one of them, not one. Where one is good say in national defense or law enforcement, he (she) is bad when it comes to immigration. I like Tom Tancredo's stance on immigration, but he doesn't stand a chance in the general election, never mind the primaries. Hillary I don't trust, Rudy I like law-enforcement-wise but he is too liberal in other respects. Rominey is an empty suit so far as I can tell.

So right now, I don't know what to do. I'll basically have to wait til the 2nd tier folks go away and then probably vote for the one who most likely reflects my views on immigration which are pretty elementary. That being If you're legal I'm all for you. If you're not get out and I don't care what the illegal's circumstances are since they do everything thay can to take advantage of the system then stick it to the middle class tax payer.

My rant for now.......
