How Each 2016 US Presidential Candidate Would Handle ISIS

The 2016 Presidential Candidates on ISISISIS is all over the news and on everyone’s mind. The groups claiming attacks all over the world and many in the US don’t think we’re handling the situation correctly.

Everyone’s got a different take on what should be done about one of the most significant terror threats to the world since Al-Qaeda.

We’ve got an election coming up and it’s important to know what each of the contenders to the most powerful post in politics would do to protect the lives of it’s citizens in such a dangerous time.

NPR (I know.. but bear with me…) put together a chart that shows what every single 2016 US Presidential Candidate thinks about ISIS, on all of the major issues – from calling it out as “radical Islam” to declaring war.

Our country’s in a fragile state right now, and we need to make a change. Educate yourself on what each candidate will do to help keep America safe and make a difference with your vote.

Unfortunately, it’s not all that clear what everyone thinks. Here’s a quick quote from the article:

Perhaps most striking here: it’s messy, with a lot of “unclears” and “maybes” and “it’s complicateds.” Candidates have over the last week dribbled out information on how they want to take on the ISIS threat, but many have not released comprehensive plans or statements. We have reached out to campaigns where candidates’ views are unclear and will update the table as we receive more information.

Either way, it’s a good start to know who’s thinking what.

Here’s a screen-grab of the actual chart.

I am a former aspiring financial services worker with a special place in my heart for Solar Energy and renewable energy. I got hit pretty bad during the financial downturn and realized that the banking industry is literally bleeding the world dry.

So I switched my focus to something that gives back to the world rather than just takes from it. Renewable energy, especially solar, is something that will help us live on this planet for a long time to come.

General interests of mine include financial stability, world events, being prepared for the worst, renewable energy and sustainability and more. I'm learning something new everyday!
