    Who is running for president in the U.S.A.?

    This is a long article, since there are so many presidential hopefuls here in the U.S.. It's a quick read, however, since there is just a bit about each candidate, both Democrat and Republican. It is easy to skip a candidate and go to another if that is what you wish to do. I saw a name or two I was entirely unfamiliar with, so it was an informative article in that sense.

    Some of the views would automatically eliminate my vote or support for them.

    Sometimes there is just one thing which helps us make a decision either way, making things so much easier.

    It's probably the biggest reason we wind up with what we get - voter myopia!

    I think the more information we have, the more able we are to make a decision. However, sometimes when all candidates begin to look and sound alike, there may be just one issue which makes it or breaks it for us.

    I hope that explains it better. Just speaking for myself, of course.

    Well and the candidates won't do anything they told before. All these talks before are just to get the votes and have nothing to do with what the president will do once elected.

    Funny how it so often works out that way. I think sometimes they have no intention of doing what they say they will do and other times it turns out to be impossible to implement their plans.

    So why do we even bother to vote? The truth is that I quit voting for a few years and paid very little attention to the whole thing. I've been seeing a quote on facebook recently which says something about how choosing to not vote isn't an act of protest, but surrender. True or not, we just make our best choices and live with whatever happens. Voting does at least give us complaining rights.

    Those elected do exactly what they are told.

    Being more cynical: I think they have PR specialists that tell them what to say. What the people want to hear.
    All the money for the election campaign comes from companies and interest groups. These tell afterwards what to do.
    A two party system is anyway not democratic.....I think it was 150 years ago when USA had the last president who wasn't either Democrats or Republican.
