The 2016 Presidential Election Game Changers

Posted on: February 1, 2016

This is merely an observation on the “game changers” in the upcoming presidential election and does not directly correlate with whom I will vote for during the election.

I think it is safe to say there are only two “game changers,” one from each major party in the upcoming presidential election at this point and without mentioning them, if you take a moment their names should come right to you if you’ve been keeping an eye on things.

Clearly Trump is the game changer on the Republican side of the aisle, if he gets elected that is. With the Iowa caucus right around the corner, developments shall be interesting.

I think it is also safe to say that Bernie Sanders is the game changer coming from the Democratic party.

Clinton has already said she is going to perpetuate and fortify much of what the current administration has implemented, so that statement disqualifies her as a “game changer.” Clinton is a status quo candidate, not unlike an incumbent in a sense being that she has been directly associated with at least two current and recent administrations and served as a senator herself as well, in office in some context for a grand total of 20 of the last 24 years. Same as it ever was, same as it ever was, same as it ever was.

Both candidates are not without distinctions at their respective party platforms. But that is what makes them both “game changers.”

Bernie Sanders is an avowed “Democratic Socialist” and for me that disqualifies him. I would agree with some of his observations on taxation and regulation were it not for the fact that he is a socialist. The country is already heavily socialized though and it doesn’t need to go any further in that direction, quite the opposite.

And I’ll leave it at that for now, just like that, exactly like that.
