And Then There Were Three [OPINION]
With John Kasich dropping out of the 2016 Presidential Race Wednesday evening I have slowly started to realize what it means for America. Donald Trump has been named the presumptive Republican nominee, and it is down to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to battle it out for the Democratic bid.
As a soon-to-be college graduate I have started thinking about the real world, and who runs that world. As I have said before, I am actually terrified.
I strongly believe that too many people are voting for the face they see on TV, the “feminist” candidate or the man who will give you free things. I speak on this because of my fellow millennials seem to be more interested in what the future President can do for them, rather than what the future President can do for our country.
Too many times my fellow millenials have spoke out on social media endorsing one candidate or the other. Most millenials seem to have a very narrow view, and forget what the big picture looks like.
Bernie Sanders wants to offer free tuition, but what does that mean for the job market throughout the nation, or the college students like me who already have a ton of student loans?
Hillary Clinton wants to keep most of President Obama’s orders in place, so does that really cultivate the change that America so desperately needs?
Donald Trump wants to “make America great again”, but at what costs?
I’m still secretly waiting for a surprise candidate, but we all know that’s not going to happen. So I guess the next thing we do as Americans is fasten our seatbelts and get ready for a bumpy ride.
