You're not gong to win by definining yourself as what you're against. You have to stand for something.

14. I'm conducting an experiment.
I think the person who will win the election is the person who stands clearly for something that matters to people.

I think if you don't know what your candidate represents, or if you can indentify it, but it's something that isn't compelling or intersting, the candidate is not going to win the general election.

I think the last two primaries show that Democrats are willing to nominate candidates who don't do well according to this test (which makes me wonder what Democrats ARE thinking when the nominate their candidates, other than, perhaps, they're responding to what the media tells them they should value).

Anyway, it will be interesting to consider these responses and keep track of the fortunes of the candidates attached who inspire the comments.

13. Introduce more competition in K thru 12 education
I am sick of looking at dismal performance results
for American students K thru 12 compared to other
countries who spend a lot less per student.

Competition is what made America prosperous and
successful. Even the corporations are becoming
monopolies via mergers and acquisitions. This is
bad for cosumers, tax payers and all others in the
long run.
