    I've been voting in the Republcian primaries. The candidates all seem worthless and clones of each other. They're top talking points are mostly the same: Served in the military, supports Fair Tax, supports gun rights, pro-life.

    1. Their military service is mostly irrelevant.

    2. The Fair Tax won't happen and it'll actually make things worse if it did happen.

    3. Gun Rights is maybe one issue they're useful on. Not only is this a heated battle ground, it's actually something states still have a lot of say in.

    4. Pro-life politicians are fully neutralized by the courts, and Hillary hasn't even yet appointed the Fifth Activist.

    What they should be talking about:

    1. School Choice. (vouchers and tax credits to use at the private schools of the parents' choice)

    2. Religious Freedom. (government shall have no laws discriminating against nor compelling people to act against sincerely held religious beliefs.)

    3. Deregulation (especially regarding health insurance in state exchanges under Obamacare)

    4. Gun rights. (Have to have one issue neoconservatives and hillbillies understand)
