Why Hasn't there been a Independent President?

Republicans and Democrats, the political parties that everyone knows about. But what about the Independent Party? The Independent Party was created in 1967 and doesn't follow any strict set of values like the two major parties do. But no Independent member has ever come close to becoming president, will they ever? Of course there was George Washington who was never part of any party, but it's not exactly the same thing.

With Media scrutinizing over every little thing, people can become extremists and limit themselves to what they can and can't believe because that's the only way they think it can work, no negotiating. Most people also don't always take the time to learn what the beliefs of the parties are and so just randomly pick one. To make it less complicated, the general public chooses what they think seems right based off of what the media tells them. And since the media never covers the candidates from the Independent Party, the people have no idea about it. But, I encourage you my loyal blog readers, to look into. It could change the future and the world as we know it.

Super Tuesday

Super Tuesday nears, and everyone is anxious to see the results. For those of you who aren't sure what Super Tuesday is, it is a day where ten states hold their primary elections, and is a big step into who is going to become president. Of course, arguments carry on within parties, and leaders are said to be showing. So who are the people that it seems America will vote for?

You guessed it! Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. As Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio attack each other within the debates, Donald Trump has the fine chance of being able to surge as a sort of victor, gaining popularity from many of Americas  According to, it seems as though Donald Trump tops his nearest competitor by 30 points, giving almost no chance for anyone other candidate to win. Looking at the final results, Donald Trump goes ahead of nearest competitor by 90 points, and Hillary Clinton was above Bernie Sanders by a large 626 points. So, my loyal blog readers, choose and candidate to vote for, and choose wisely. It could affect our country in the best, or the worst of ways.

Does the Democrat Party Fear Donald Trump?

This morning I read a very interesting post by Alex Seitz-Wald and Benjy Sarlin on NBC News that stated facts on Trumps diverse campaign and how the Democratic candidates are afraid of this different approach on things. But in what way are they afraid oh him?

It isn't fair to say that the Democrat Party is afraid of Donald Trump beating them, but they're afraid of him winning. But, they are afraid of anyone who might take the place that they feel would better suit them, that's just how everyones minds this close to becoming president works. Donald Trump though, is currently winning in the polls and I'm sure to The Democrat Party he is a formidable "foe". The way the media scrutinizes over everything Donald Trump says or does only betters and strengthens his campaign, or vice versa. Many of Donald Trumps plans can be describe as racist, sac religious, sexist, inhumane, etc. Although I don't agree with all of that, it fears mostly the Democrats into using a method of painting him as a corrupt businessman like they did on Mitt Romney. This goes without saying though that they wouldn't have anyways. All in all, Democrats will be afraid of a Republican President and Republicans will be afraid of a Democratic President.

Marco Rubio a Future President?

The idea is simple really. As the times change and people become more and more extreme, people are also becoming more judgmental, and surprisingly, more understanding. Marco Rubio is an interesting blend of conservative, with a hint of modern day realism. Marco Rubio labels himself as a Republican, but often times leans more towards the left wing. So why is he a possible future president?

With the publicity of a few candidates and the amount of people the media has control over, the top four candidates are obvious, which pushes me to believe that Marco Rubio will have no chance of winning this race. But the young charisma for such an astounding politician in years to come will reach the general public and his new and original ideas will eventually have to be taken seriously. This man doesn't take anything lightly, and will work hard to make our country prosper the way it once did. Though Marco Rubio as much to learn, he could be a great future President of the United States of America.

Donald Trump Strikes Back!

First time making a blog, and of course it's about Donald Trump. Interesting right? The fact is, Donald Trump has some outrageous views and methods, but there are many reasons why they work. Yes it is true that he is an extremist, and I do not agree with all of what he says. But the man has a lot of reasonable points, and many of the things he says is for rates on numerous media sites and channels. Here is a very good example of one of his "outrageous" views.

"Sadly, the overwhelming amount of violent crime in our major cities is committed by blacks and hispanics-a tough subject-must be discussed." -Donald J Trump.
Many people have said negative comments to this post. But the truth is, he's right. And let me tell you why. Statistically, most crime is done by non caucasian people. Most people do realize this, but still make the argument that it is racist and is wrong to place all the crime on non caucasian people. It's not racist to admit this, it's just statistics. Donald Trump points out that is a tough subject because people don't want to be labeled as racist, but it does HAVE to be dealt with. If us as citizens and as a country let this overwhelming amount of crime continue, then that is what this country will be known as. A country that could've stopped murderers and thieves. Don't let others people views cloud your judgement!
