I’m not sure how to view the growing sideshow of presidential candidates: too many on the Republican side, too few for the Democrats.

As a fiscal conservative and social moderate, the political parties no longer represent my interests. Our choice should be the better of two goods, not the lesser of two evils.

I’m hoping there is still some undeclared cream that will float to the top. However, I lose hope when we have people like Donald Trump. That is just the wrong amount of “right” for me.
