    I dont want some stupid thread about how dumb Donald Trump is.

    Fair warning, you post something negative about Donald Trump that isnt intelligent and actually backs up with reasons why, I will give you a warning point off the bat. I dont care if you like/dislike Trump. I want a serious thread because I dont know my opinion yet.


    This is the first election I get to vote in, please only talk about the Republican canidates towards me because we are a closed state and I am Republican. So even if I wanted to, I cant vote for Democrats.

    Can someone give me some tips on maybe who I should vote for? Or what candiate seems good to you? (Remember only Republicans because I cant actually vote for Democrats.)

    In Florida, it is a closed state Primary.

    Which means, if I am registered to vote as a Republican, I am not aloud to go to the polls for a Democrat and vote. I am only aloud to vote at the Republican polls. If I liked a Democratic canidate then I would have to switch my party, but right now, it's too late to do that.

    I have no discrimination lol.

    You don't need to know anything else, take my word on that. Trump is racist, extremely manipulative. He contradicts himself, he constantly changes his opinion. You will never know what kind of president you'll get by voting for him because he just tells you what you want to hear.

    Oh and don't fucking delete my posts.

    I will delete whatever I want if I clearly said in my thread I want a thread that isnt just about Donald Trump. If you have something negative to say, which is fine, Please make it professional. Not "Donald Trump is Hilter."

    I want to know about the canidates as a whole. Now your opinion said in this comment is much better. Thank you for the feedback, I will keep that in mind on my vote.

    If you really want to vote for the best candidate, you need to do your own research and do not base your decision on what other people say. Politifact.com is a really good website that check statements made by political leaders. Trump being the worst of them has told many more lies than truths. So I would check that website and go through the top contenders before making your decision. My personal choice is Bernie Sanders all the way. He has the best record for fighting for the people and not special interests. His foreign policy is a little lacking and I do not agree with him on every issue. However given who we have to choose from, he is by far the best candidate in my book.

    Also, you are partially right about changing your party affiliation. You cannot change it for the primary as you can't change it within 29 days of a primary vote in your state. However after the primary vote you can change it before the general election. So say the republican you want didn't got the Republican nomination or the person who did you really do not like, you can change your affiliation and vote democrat in the national election in November. Go here for more information on how to do that (it's around the middle of the page)

    Tbh all the other candidates don't have enough momentum the polls so they won't be nominated. So trump is really the only repub candidate that matters at this point.

    Not unless people change their opinion. I have talked to people and watch maybe like one debate. I am just kinda nervous being this is my first time voting, I want to make sure my opinion is reflecting what the candidate is goiong for.
    Thank you for respecfully responding. I will look around on the websites you gave me, might help me on my opinion.

    You don't have to vote if you don't like any of the canidates. I'm prob not voting, nor my dad and brother since they hate trump. My mom likes him so what can you do. I just want him to repeal obamacare. Ask your parents.

    They've been around the political sphere a lot longer then you have. So their opinions might help you form your own. I'm not trying to be rude.

    @Rollie repealing Obamacare will cut off millions of people from healthcare, that's the problem that we got stuck into. The best way to fix that broken system is to expand medicare as a right to all people. With Sanders plan, every citizen will have basic healthcare as a right. You can still purchase better healthcare, but as far as being able to go to the doctor when you need to or the emergency room for dire circumstances you would still be covered.
