What's really going with the upcoming 2016 Presidential Election?
Republican Presidential Candidates Donald Trump and Ben Carson appear to be gaining ground on the Republican side leaving other candidates far behind, including Jeb Bush. This comes as a big surprise considering the legacy of the Bush Family.
Did Chris Christie really think he could become a viable candidate after the Bridge Scandal in his home state?
Are some people in the race to look or sound good with no real intentions of going all the way? Running for President should be taken seriously by all parties involved because the responsibility of the President is actually representing the entire world. There's no room for margin of error or a lapse in judgment in this role. Donald Trump is speaking the minds of most people and being politically correct is not his style.
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton finds herself in a constant struggle due to a potential email scandal while Bernie Sanders continues to gain ground. It's also good to see two women, Carly Fiorina and Hillary Clinton, running for President because men have always dominated the Presidential Race since the birth of our great nation.
There is a great chance that the winner of both primaries will come down to Ben Carson and Bernie Sanders. It all depends on how good Donald Trump can persuade the voters that he can control his impulsive behavior, which leads to going back and forth with almost everybody that does not agree with him on specific policies. Sometimes the turtle can win the race because the turtle knows how to pace himself in order to survive the duration of the race. Talking loud is good in the beginning, but will it help you succeed in the end? Each candidate must abide by this golden rule if they want to be successful.
Now is the time for all candidates to present their policies to help move the country forward. Some of the major challenges for each candidate will be setting forth policies to effectively address the recent spike in police involved killings of African American males, terrorism, world peace, fixing the economy, immigration reform, helping the poor, reducing violence, nuclear weapon control , and gun control. President Barack Obama did his best to address most of the issues, but more needs to be done to ensure that America does not become vulnerable to external forces. Many world leaders would like to see the collapse of America and the next President must take the country to the next level by presenting a vision for the world. Becoming the next President is one thing, but having a plan for the nation is the number one priority. Let's not make this race about Hollywood, but more about substance.
