I'm really fired up about politics and making hubs about my candidate. Are you Feeling the Bern?
Or do you have another candidate or party that inspires your passion?
He's proof that anti-establishment feelings are true for both political parties.
I think Sanders inspires both younger & older generations because he says what people want to hear. The problem is that almost every President has done this, & obviously they don't deliver. That being said, out of all the monstrosities that we call candidates right now, I'd say Bernie Sanders or Marco Rubio are the best choices.
At least, Bernie is articulating the problem and offering goals. Most don't even want to address the issues. For me, it seems all the other candidates just want war and more war. Won't keep our country safe, just fuel the military industrial complex
Bernie is certainly the voice of diplomacy and logic in the US election. If I lived there he would be my choice of candidates. Trump is frightening and I am afraid that if he were to become president that world war 3 would not be far behind him. He is a very scary bigoted man. Does he really think that other country's won't see through his prejudiced attitude?
I'm excited about Ted Cruz because he's the first real Constitutional conservative since Ronald Reagan. He's an outsider whose not afraid to confront the elites in both parties.
He's had a passion for the Constitution since his youth and wants to return to the the principles in it which have accounted for America's greatness and made the government one that's "of the people".
He wants to reduce the size and influence of the federal government to bring back the decision making process and power closer to the people though their state and local governments.
He also wants to bring America back to its Christian foundations that have been under constant assault with the government's secular agenda.
You do sound fired up for Cruz.
If we were debating, I'd have to mention that America was founded as a secular nation by Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, etc. We aren't debating, so I'll drop that discussion. Thanks for your answer.
If we were debating, I'd mention that Washington DC has scripture quotes in practically every prominent place and the vast majority of the founders considered Christianity to be central to american society.

Has this election season changed America forever? If you think so, then how?Charges of election rigging, infiltration by the "Russians," troves of e-mail leaks, inflammatory rhetoric from both parties, and outright fraud are all topics making headlines. Add in the real...

Do you think people should have to display an understanding of politics before being allowed to voteI don't mean an in-depth understanding, just a basic one of how government works and what each party/candidate stands for.

In another forum, someone posted that they dumped their significant other because he/she voted for George Bush. I was kind of shocked by that. It seemed incredibly shallow to me, but I don't know either of the people involved, maybe I'm missing something here.Is this normal practice in...

Do you think its a good idea or bad idea to write about politics on HubPages?Politics, like religion, stirs up emotions in some people bringing out their, shall we say, darker qualities. Knowing this is it a good idea to rouse them with political hubs?

As a Brit, I enjoy the politics hubs and forums here on HubPages.Some hubbers demonstrate a hysteria against Obama which seems far beyond the attacks on Clinton and Bush. I worry whether they are helping to create an atnosphere that would condone assassination.Americans used to revere the office of...
