Todd Baron: I don’t go for either democrats or republicans.
I don’t go for either democrats or republicans. I would vote for Hillary. Donald Trump is a lunatic. He’s racist and sexist towards women. He makes irrelevant remarks.
To be honest I don’t feel good about local elections because they’re doing the same thing as Donald Trump. The governor right now is acting like Reagan thinking that every person of color is a drug dealer. And you can’t have weed – just legalize it. It’s proven that it helps with cancer and helps with Crohn's disease.
[For a presidential candidate] I want someone who cares about the environment. Someone who cares about their people. Hilary actually has good views… but I’d rather have Bernie Sanders. He was more of a common man.
Another thing, Trump said he got a small loan of a million dollars from his father. That’s not a small loan. [If I got that loan] I’d be smart with it. I’d open a small business like a cafe or a skate and surf shop...or tattoo and piercings.. or do glassmaking.
