The fun is still going for the race of the next president of the United States.
All eyes have been on the Democratic candidates who are running against the current president, President Donald Trump. And with a large number of the candidates (there’s currently 20 of them), it has been hard to keep up with who’s who and what they stand for.
But a lot of us have not set our eyes on the other pool-the Republican candidates. These men want to face off against President Trump for his second term, and want to be chosen as the Republican candidate for the 46th president.
“Too many people, because they were white and poor, black and rich, or just plain busy with something other than politics, have felt they had no voice in government.”
The former Governor of South Carolina and a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives wants to focus on America’s debt. According to the New York Times, Sanford has been “reining in wasteful spending, targeting debt and the deficit, and supporting free trade.” The former governor has said that the crisis of financial deficiency in the country has led to a financial disaster that has led to “job lost and grave injury to the American dream”. He emphasizes maximizing individual liberty and to have limited government involvement in the citizens’ lives.
“It won’t be easy, but bravery is never easy. But together, we can do it.”
Former Representative of Illinois turned talk radio host has thrown his hat in the presidential ringer. He sees deficit spending as one of the biggest problems in the country, says The Week. Walsh said that the problem is not defense spending or the 2017 Republican tax cuts, but in Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. He’s quoted saying, “If you’re really honest about the debt, the looming debt crisis that we have right now, it’s all about the entitlements.” The North Barrington native knows that he is not everyone’s first pick for the White House, but he believes that people should take a chance with him: “I can’t lie, if you’re in Vegas right now, are you gonna put ten grand down on Joe Walsh? No, but I think there’s an opportunity here.”
William F. Weld
“Do we believe that there is an equal opportunity economic opportunity out there in the real world, right now, for each and every one of these groups? If we believed in the tooth fairy, if we believed in the Easter Bunny, we might as well believe that.”
The Republican candidate has a long list of titles currently: Partner at Mintz Levin law firm, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and an associate member of the InterAction Council. He was a former Massachusetts governor who has a stan with liberal social issues. While he was governor in 1991, he introduced a bill aiming to make it easier to get an abortion in Massachusetts, according to The Axios.
He also supports legalizing marijuana and wants to cut spending and taxes. He also wants to rejoin the Paris climate agreement.
