It’s on to South Carolina. Yes, the presidential primary, which has been dragging on since the day after Obama was elected to his second term, is finally in full swing. All the candidates are jockeying for position – all the nonsense we’ve had to endure is finally coming into view.
And now with the recent exit of two more on the Republican side, Christie and Fiorina, we are down to a much more reasonable six candidates. Its actually only five – Carson is out – he just hasn’t announced it yet. Oh, I almost forgot Jim Gilmore. He may a force going forward. After all, he did garner 125 votes in the New Hampshire primary, although that was about half the 240 votes that Vermin Supreme received on the democrat side. But what democrat wouldn’t vote for a guy who looks like a Viking and wears a boot on his head. Sounds like a mainstream democrat, or a college professor.
On the democrat side the race has and will continue to be focused on who can give away more of our money to those who have not earned it or are otherwise undeserving. On the right, the issues are a bit more diverse, or at least more defined.
Our candidates quibble over their varying views on Obamacare, immigration, taxes and spending. Yet something has gone virtually unmentioned throughout this campaign. We haven’t heard it out on the stump (much) and the debates appear bereft of questions from the moderators. I am speaking of the black-robed 800 lb. Gorillas in the room – the Supreme Court.
