Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, and Carly Fiornia Enter the 2016 Race for President

5/3/2015  articles

As we approach the fall of the year, time bids us to think seriously about who will be the winners and losers in the big 2016 fight for the control of the White House, Congress and the numerous lesser fiefdoms which dot home-town America.

Perhaps you live in one of those homey bungalows that dot the American landscape. Perhaps not!

Nevertheless, at this writing Senator Marco Rubio the ambitious Florida Republican, according to a national poll released by Quinnipiac University, has taken the lead from former Florida Governor Jeb Bush 15 percent to 13 percent.

What is more, according to pollster Tim Malloy, “This is the kind of survey that shoots adrenalin into a campaign. Marco Rubio gets such strong enough numbers and favorable ratings to pose a legitimate threat to the queen in waiting, Hillary Clinton.”

But wait! There is a powerful female opponent of Hillary. Her name is Carly Fiorina, the former chief executive of Hewlett Packard, who in her bid for the presidency charges that our government has become too big, too powerful, too costly, too complex and too corrupt that “It no longer serves the people.”

Let’s look at Wisconsin where we will find that GOP governor Scott Walker parlayed a budget deficit of $3.6 billion into a bigger budget surplus of more than half a billion dollars, building the largest rainy-day balance in state history.

“When I ran for governor, the unemployment rate topped out at 9.2 percent and Wisconsin ranked 43rd on Chief Executive’s Magazine list of best states for business. Today, our unemployment rate has dropped to 6.7 percent and Wisconsin has moved up to 17th on the magazine’s list.

“Equally important, 94 percent of employers surveyed by the Wisconsin statewide chamber think Wisconsin is heading in the right direction, up from just 4 percent in 2009”.

Sen. Rand Paul (R. Ky.) has signed a pledge not to raise taxes, the first presidential candidate to do so. This pledge has a lot of hope but lacks positive action. In fact Paul brags that if elected he will propose the biggest tax cut in American history. We are very anxious to see it proposed and voted up or down. We confess that we would prefer a yes vote at the GOP national convention along with follow-through action all the way to the White House for the president’s signature.

It’s nice to dream but with the general public pushing hard for passage, the Paul bill has a good chance of becoming law.

Tell your friends, relatives, co-workers and others to follow your lead and vote for change—real change.

Now is the time to get active. Check the election laws in your state finding out if parties have local covenants that move step by step to state wide meetings ending in the national convention of your party, where the candidates for the top offices in the country will be selected.

Only one Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton, has announced a run for the White House in 2016. From the outset her campaign has been plagued with the Clinton Cash scandal. Peter Schweizer, the author of the book, Clinton Cash, claims that this is due to the extensive pattern created as a result of her political fund-raising activities.

Good luck and Godspeed.
