blog-2016-electionNo, I’m not a Republican. Yes, I generally think the political system sucks.

But I don’t like to live my life with my head in the sand. So I watched the debate tonight.

A few thoughts:

  • The conversation about how “not to lose the election” is pathetic. Come on, no great leader ever talks about strategies to “not lose”. In sports, when you are trying to not lose, you generally get smoked. Politics are no different. Not at all inspiring.
  • I heard more military over and over tonight. A bigger military, with more spending, will not make us safer. It’s seriously blows my mind these people don’t get that. More people “fearing” the USA is not a good thing.
  • Jeb Bush closing with “rebuilding our military” as his pledge is a fairly risky strategy if you ask me, given how great his brother’s track record is on military. I think Jeb is holding on by a thread.
  • Rand Paul and Rubio are the best of the bunch, but I’m not really a fan of any of them.
