People have different #1 issues. Some care more about foreign policy, which I honestly don't get. To me, economics is #1. Having a candidate who at least understands the unintended consequences of stupid economic policies is so important, especially now that the left is moving even more to the left and are pushing for disastrous policies.
We have a republican party afraid to challenge these idiots on the minimum wage because they fear being called names. Some republicans like Kasich even support the idea! As far as the choices we have now, there is not even a question in my mind as to who I would rather have as the nominee. While I don't like Cruz, I would much rather have someone who will challenge Hillary in the general, on these issues, and even global warming.
Trump has no clue how to defend the free market position. He proved this when he was asked about the minimum wage. He gave the worst fucking possible answer he could have. The man is clueless. The man stated that healthcare is one of the main functions of the government. Again, fucking clueless.
Economics is the most important issue right now because young people are becoming more open to socialism. This is dangerous shit.
