Listen up, Tigers, things are about to get real. And by real, I mean the real world kind of real, so pay attention.

In the wake of March 1st (AKA Super Tuesday) starting off the United States’ Primary Elections, I think it’s only fair that we open up the conversation regarding Missouri’s own March 15th Primary. If you are a citizen of the US of A and you are 18 years of age, VOTE, God dammit. Express your rights. Be adults. Have an opinion.

Here is your breakdown of the remaining 2016 Presidential Candidates and their stances on important issues.
