Where Is The Candidate Of Courage Who Will Challenge Americans To Be Better?

I am totally dissatisfied with the million candidates running for president. None of them seem to have courage or a vision to present to the American people. All I hear are negative attacks, reasons to vote against other candidates but no real reason yet to vote for the candidates running. So far the candidate I liked best is Scott Walker. He dropped out of the race because he believed there were too many candidates dividing the attention. Finally, someone who puts his country ahead of himself.
We don’t need any candidates who appeal to our lower natures by thinly disguised appeals to greed, selfishness or bigotry. We need a candidate who will call us to be great, who believes that we are indeed capable of greatness, of sacrifice for the common good. We need candidates with the courage to tell us the truth. We need candidates who haven’t sold themselves to Planned Parenthood or Corporate America.
We need candidates with courage to truly offer solutions to the immigration problem and our economic problems. We don’t need a candidate unwilling to work with both parties or compromise. We also don’t need another amateur or candidate who ignores the Constitution. Eight Years of that is enough.
We need someone with courage who is willing to be a one term president if necessary to accomplish something, someone who will put our country ahead of his own interests and his/her party.
So far I don’t see one.
