Let's meet ... George Pataki!
George Pataki's campaign website Pataki for President (click here) is actually quite interesting. I appreciate the fact that he has published information regarding both himself and his wife. After all, I believe our First Lady* has massive influence over our nation. We don't elect one person into the presidency; we elect a family.
Anyway, his campaign website is also somewhat disappointing, considering there is no one page I can view to read up on his full platform. In order to understand where George Pataki stands on the issues from George Pataki himself, I had to scroll through a lot of different posts.
In the end, I think this article (click here) from Wednesday's GOP debate does a pretty good job summing George's stances on various issues. The article takes his best quotes regarding tax reform, party lines, America's military, Hillary Clinton**, Obamacare, vaccines and climate change, conservatism, science and innovation, blue-collar workers, Uber, and New York sports teams.
For further information regarding George, I would recommend going to OnTheIssues.org and reading his entry. Click here to check that out!
What's My Opinion?
In the end, whatever I say after this should not affect your opinion in the slightest. Make and own your opinion. Pick who is right for you.
That being said, in my book, George has a lot of good things going for him. I was really impressed by his decision to include and spotlight his wife in his campaign. I found him to be confident and self-assured. That page of quotes from the recent debate shows he has a good sense of humor. Even if he's not your choice for president, I think you'd be hard pressed to say he's not a good man. Honestly, when it comes down to it, that's who I want to vote for. Just a good person.
Anyway, what do you think? Be sure to comment below!
**I will eventually investigate bigger-name candidates, including Clinton.
