My friend Steve at Cry and Howl shared a link to an article that I think would benefit everyone who has been following the election.
The presidential candidate of Midwestern nostalgia, Ohio governor John Kasich*, is a nice man. Unfortunately, the 2016 election cycle is a meat-grinder: equal parts unpredictability and contentiousness, not decency. Therefore, “nice guy” candidates like the highly likable and eminent Dr. Ben Carson, in the same Kasich mold, trail badly in the polls.
In any case, the electorate is disillusioned by the establishments of both political parties, as well as the propagandist, one-sided MSM that carries the Democrats’ swill of half-truths, misleading statements by omission, and outright cover for lies (like Joe Biden’s 1992 “misunderstood” objection to an end-term Republican president making a Supreme Court nomination.)
All under Mr. Obama’s golf-playing watch: 10 trillion in additional debt; almost 8 more years of economic downturn; 93 million able-bodied Americans unable to find employment; Democrats’ pandering to Radical Islam, illegal aliens and Black Lives Matter; Europe awash in 60 million migrants and the Middle East on fire with terrorism. And lest I forget, our pro-Islamic president‘s crowning legacy: the high probability proliferation of nuclear weapons in the Middle East under the control of Iranian ayatollahs.
To any clear thinking person, is it any surprise that everything is “throw the bums out?” (This means you too, House Speaker Paul Ryan, with your “fresh start” 2 trillion dollar budgetary capitulation to Democrats.) In 2016, it takes no genius to realize that voters are fed up to their eyeballs. Consequently, Kasich’s fond Americana of homemade apple pies or “I Love Lucy” reruns is out-of-step with the timbre of the country.
Be sure to read it all! It’s a must read today!
I finally figured out why many evangelical Christians have voted for Trump and will vote for him when the primary hits their states. It’s not only the establishment Republicans the voters are fed up with; but it is also the political “elites,” the Republican Senators and Congressmen who got into office stating their conservative values and intentions (which many sadly backtracked on!), the media of mass deception, or the complete disaster of 0zero and his BADministration. It is also because voters are fed up with the donor class!
I have been getting so many annoying emails from every candidate except Trump. We all know why he doesn’t need to do that. However, my fear is that Trump would turn out to be another 0bama with an “R” next to his name if he gets into office.

- One note of disagreement with the author. I have heard several times in the past that Kasich puts on an act about being nice in the public eye but he is very foul-mouthed, mean and vindictive behind closed doors. Here is a comment at the American Thinker site about him:

Anybody who says John Kasich is a “nice and authentic man” is completely ignorant of John Kasich. Kasich is a very mean and vindictive man. Shortly after becoming governor John Kasich went against the will of the people and the legislature of Ohio and used “executive authority” (illegal) to cram Medicaid Expansion down the throats of the citizens of a state who had just elected a legislature that had voted this down. Then after doing this brazen act against his own citizens, Kasich worked with union thug money and Chamber of Commerce money to target the state legislators who actually had done right and represented their voters in this matter. Katich essentially targeted every conservative state rep for elimination with campaigns of lies and Alinsky deceptions. Just like the stuff of Trump. Kasich is a liar and a bully and the public crying sensitive metrosexual persona he puts on is a complete act. He is a very bad man.
