Super Tuesday #2

I voted in Ohio today.  I won't say who I voted for. . .

Apparently, many of the Cruz folks are voting for John Kasich here today.  Ohio is a winner-take-all state and they like the idea of keeping Ohio's 66 delegates away from Trump.

That means there are two types of voters today.  In the Ohio primarily, but elsewhere too:
1) Voters who vote for the candidate who they think best represents them, and
2) The voters who don't stand for anything, but stand against Trump.
In other words, the Kasich voter may not stand for amnesty, gun-control, or obamacare as Kasich does.  The Kasich voter stands against Trump.  I have an Ohio FB comrade who shared this from today.  He felt good about his vote.

If you stand against Trump, you must dislike headlines like those on Drudge today.  We don't want China to be worried about who we elect, right?  We don't want George Soros upset at us for electing Trump, right?

Here are a couple more screenshots from FB comrades today.  The first is from a voter in Florida, the second from Ohio.

I just listened to an interview with C. Steven Tucker, a FB comrade.  He is an outspoken leader in the health insurance industry and a popular activist.  He posted this interview where he discusses the healthcare plans of both Cruz and Trump.  It is only 22 minutes - too short in my opinion - but I learned a LOT.  Comrade Tucker is my go-to guy for the healthcare debate.  Take a listen!

Last, an amazing thing.  Have you heard of Libertarians for Trump?  Walter E. Block writes at Lew Rockwell, where he makes the case that Libertarians should consider voting for Trump in 2016.  I have said before that Trump's GOP insurgency, his 3rd party run from within, shares many of the same traits that I've detected within Libertarians.  The anger, the common sense and the energy are three that come to mind.  He's looking for people to join him with the hope LFT can become a sizable block of voters that may steer Trump even more into their corner.
But, the perfect is the enemy of the good. It is our goal to throw our weight behind the candidate who has a reasonable chance of actually becoming President of the United States whose views are CLOSEST to libertarianism.

I ask you to do this [join LFT], rather, because it is the right thing to do; he is, of all the major candidates for the office of President of the United States, the one most closely, albeit very far from perfectly, aligned with our beloved libertarian philosophy.
