We can only hope it does not come to this but time is running out for alternates.

In the red corner, a businessman* with no political experience, a narcissistic ego-maniac with a questionable platform regarding economic growth, foreign policy, taxes, immigration... you name it. Not known for consensus building, leadership or diplomacy. Eager to engage with a heavy hand, might actually take a swing at Putin if given the chance. Would probably definitely grope female dignataries and summer interns.

* Main claim to fame: slapping his name on any old thing, being leveraged to the hilt (OPM), filing bankruptcy, creative comb-over and saying "Yoor fih-herd".

In the blue corner, a former First Lady*, attorney and carpetbagger with questionable dealings going all the way back to Whitewater and more recently Benghazi and personal email servers. Not one to shy away from any deal that will enhance her personal net worth (see "Chinagate" or "Travelgate"). Spouse not known for either fidelity or ethics.

* Only First Lady to be subpoenaed... Never met a pantsuit she did not like. Subterfuge is her middle name.

As an attorney she was thrown off the Watergate investigation for being a "... dishonest lawyer... She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality."

Heaven help us.

all the candidates suck. As scary as it sounds I think the one I would throw up least voting for is Jeb which is shocking because I think his brother is the worst president in history.

Actually I like Kasich but he doesn't have a chance unless someone takes him as a VP.. Maybe I could live with Rubio. All their economic plans suck so far

The one I really can't stand is Cruz. No way I could ever vote for him. I'd probably just not vote unless repubs will control the houses then I'd vote democrat against cruz ( not that it matters in new york )

Sad state of affairs when I have to hope for gridlock

so let me get this straight, a party that is so pro gay rights (personally no problem) and women's rights (also no problem) will be so In favor and fight so hard for a group of people who kill torture and imprision homosexuals and are archaic in the treatment of woman and take money from groups who promote said groups. Hmmmmmm

Unfortunately it is always the lesser of two evils. Could never vote for Clinton so it is easy for me.

Seems you're X-ing out an entire throng of desperate people because of their nominal religious ID. These people are desperate refugees fleeing tyranny, deprivation, and terror. The vetting process for refugees is very extensive. I think something like 3 of thousands of refugees since 9/11 have been involved in terrorist activities here.
Plus 45 people have been killed in terrorist attacks in USA by Muslim extremists since 9/11 vs. 48 killed by Christian /White Supremacist extremists.
It's time to be sensible and compassionate on this particular refugee issue. It's called being humane.

You have worse taste in politicians than you do in beer.
