Why I Support Donald Trump – Part 2

People are having difficulty trying to figure out why I’m supporting Donald Trump with such severity.  So let me explain.

patriotI’ve already explained the specifics of what is ahead and how ONLY JEB BUSH will win the primary in – PART ONE – “The Tripwires”.  And I’ve expanded it for further explanation – HERE – and –HERE.

Regardless of how much you support a “NON-JEB” if you, as a conservative, vote for Walker, Perry, Cruz, Jindal, Rubio et al you will get JEB BUSH out of the GOPe machine.

Expecting a different outcome is like standing at that soda machine that gives you diet ginger ale regardless of which button you push.

Just because the buttons say: Coke, Root Beer, Fanta, Sprite etc. doesn’t mean the slots inside the machine (which you can’t see) are loaded with anything other than diet ginger ale, or Jeb Bush.

Putting your money in the same GOP machine over and over, only leaves you standing there with elevently cans of diet ginger ale;  the eleventy-first push of the button delivers yet another Jeb Bush.

Stop being a co-dependent, and don’t worry about walking to a different, perhaps unfamiliar, vending machine.  Also, don’t worry about expressing an opinion that you don’t trust Trump; or Trump doesn’t pass your litmus test of (fill in the blank).  Neither are the issue.

I have been transparent with my personal support for Donald Trump, and the specific reason for it.

I want the GOPe machine torn down, dispatched to earth orbit, and nuked while there regardless of consequence, because I’m sick of having to be brutalized and used by Republican liars hiding within it.  Period.

For me, the elimination of the GOPe machine is ultimately more valuable than anything else.

Walker, Bush, Rubio, Kasich, Perry, Christie, Huckabee et al will never destroy the GOPe machine, they themselves are part of the apparatus.

Rand Paul and Ted Cruz have shown an inability and unwillingness to do it.  Sorry to deliver the bitter pill of reference, but see VA, KY and MS primary 2014 – they supported the CoC McConnell/Boehner team.  They lost me with their self-serving refusal to charge, when charging mattered most.

Carson, Fiorina and Jindal, all good people, are dependent on $$$ and therefore unable to walk into the office and destroy the people who purchased it for them.

Pataki, Gilmore, Graham or other, are all part of the problem – not the solution.

So who does that leave me with?


tea party begins capitol-view-lo-res

I want the Republican ‘Big Government’ Party, as it is currently constructed, destroyed. DESTROYED. I want it replaced with America First Conservatism.

However, that said, I am clear-eyed that Trump is quite possibly not the guy to rebuild. And that’s OK.

I supported Scott Brown not to support Scott Brown, but to stop Obamacare. I was clear-eyed that a Massachusetts Republican was not a deeply committed strain of constitutional conservatism (see Mitt Romney “severely conservative”).

The Scott Brown effort failed, but the effort was a valid fight. Scott Brown was a tool, a means to an end.  The reason it failed was because the Democrats changed the rules (see Harry Reid and “reconciliation” in the Senate) after the loss.

Like Scott Brown, we need to use Trump to destroy the GOP.  The effort might not succeed, but what is there to lose.

The GOP machine supports: ¹ Comprehensive immigration reform to include amnesty, ² ObamaCare, and ³ Common Core.  U.S. Chamber of Commerce President, Tom Donohue, makes sure his priorities are the priorities of the GOPe, he pays well to insure it.

Just like pushing Scott Brown in January 2010, again it’s another worthy endeavor.

Once that’s done, and that also means phase 2 ridding the infection that is John Boehner and Mitch McConnell ideologues, then maybe we can rebuild an actual 2nd party – because right now there’s only one party, the uniparty of the GOP/DEM.

We have the most magnificent national classic car ever built – now in need of restoration.  Do we bondo it, yet again, for another fancy paint job without ever cutting out the underlying rust.  Or do we cut it down to clear margins and restore it from the ground up?

I hate bondo !

    This is a great example of how Trump frames an issue, then acts appropriately.
    José Andrés in hot water after backing out of Trump deal
    Trump Old Post Office LLC sued Andrés’ ThinkFoodGroup and an affiliate, Topo Atrio LLC, for $10 million, citing two counts of breaking a contract for their restaurant deal in D.C., the Washington Business Journal reported Friday.

    According to the lawsuit, the restaurant group requested on July 17 that Trump apologize for his statements on immigration and not make similar claims in the future. Trump Old Post Office LLC told ThinkFoodGroup it was in default of its lease because they missed the deadline to submit construction documents. The suit was filed in U.S. District court for the District of Columbia.

    Nothing wrong with bondo (plastic filler) if applied properly, not too thick, and not on edges. Safer than lead, better on big areas, no heat needed, and will last a very long time. It resides under many concours restorations

  4. Yes, but who gets the VP spot is equally important. Walker is my guy. He has the inside experience of the worst that can be thrown at a Republican and standing up to it. Cruz stands for good principles and he’s made a great effort in the Senate, but Walker has actually done what needed to be done.
    Too bad Trump doesn’t seem to appreciate Walker’s accomplishments. Trump is just repeating Dem/public employee union talking points. Not a good sign, SD. But I get your point. Just remember, things can change in the blink of an eye.


    • kinthenorthwest says:

      I think you might want to look at what Walker said about Trump first.
      Trump spoke out on Walker after Walker dished Trump. Actually Walker’s dish of Trump was to defend the RINOs!
      To me if someone is defending the RINOs that usually means that they embrace their policies! Not a good sign in my book!

    All what Trump has to do in these debates is to say “I will hire the right people for the job, instead of these morons who run U.S. politics, haven’t you watched The Apprentice?”.

    No matter what Trump says on “how he will do things”, the media will find lousy critics with right titles as “experts”. Trump explaining “how” in detail is not the right approach in a debate and no matter what he says, the media will nit-pick.

    First of all, there a difference between the GOP and the Democrats. If there had been a GOP president instead of Obama, we would not have Obamacare, or all the regulations he’s issued, or all the idiotic DOJ civil rights investigations, or the two liberal SC justices he has appointed (which in turn lead to liberal SC decisions for years to come).

    Second of all, destroying the GOP as it exists today will only lead to a smaller minority party which will never win a presidential contest, and probably gift the Democrats with permanent control of Congress.

    Finally, Donald Trump wrote in 2000 that he favored a single-payer healthcare system like Canada, and told O’Reilly in 2012 that illegals should be given a pathway to citizenship. Viewing him as a “tool’ to defeat Obamacare and amnesty can most charitably be described as bizarre.

    Politics is a game where you don’t get everything you want, and you frequently must settle for a choice that’s simply better than the alternative. You can’t just take your ball and go home.

      Nice try, but no. Go sell crazy somewhere else. There is absolutely no difference between the GOP and Democrats.

      Did the GOP secure the border with control of the White House and Congress?
      Did the GOP balance the budget with control of the White House and Congress?

      Justice Roberts (I remind you a GOP Presidential nominee) affirmed ObamaCare, twice. And guess what, his vote counted with the same weight as Elena Kagen.

      Medicaid is already single payer healthcare.
      Who expanded Medicare to include prescription drug coverage? The GOP.
      Who expanded government and built additional costly agencies? The GOP.
      Who gave us the TSA? The GOP.
      Who gave us the unpatriotic patriot act? The GOP
      Who cut the tax rates on lower margins by 50% thereby removing any tax liability from the bottom 20% wage earners? While simultaneously expanding the role of government dependency programs? The GOP (“Bush Tax Cuts”)
      Who created the precursor of Common Core, “Race To The Top”? The GOP
      NAFTA? The GOP

      I want the GOP faction to be a small irrelevant minority party. Because I want Republicans to be America First Conservatives.

      You say: “Politics is a game where you don’t get everything you want”, fair enough. Name one thing that conservatives have gotten from delivering the House in ’10, and ’12, and the Senate, again, in ’14?

      How many Bills have been constructed, passed and forced Obama to sign or veto in the past year? Oh yeah, ZERO. That’s the GOP pushback?

      The Icing on the Establishment Cake…

      ….==> And the best, the absolute best representative face the GOP can come up with is Mitch McConnell and John Boehner? Neither of which can present themselves to a modern engaged, pop culture driven electorate, and simultaneously articulate a single principle or standard for the party without sounding like either that doddering fool down the road with the signs on his law forbidding anyone to dare touch the grass, OR, the washed up middle aged drunk guy at the end of the bar hitting on your 20 year old daughter?

      THAT is the face of the GOP.

      THIS. This is what you come here and defend?

      And, to think, people on your side (George Will) sit around and wonder why they’re losing?…

      Hillary or Jeb – ultimately there isn’t a damned bit of consequential difference.

        It’s simply false that the GOP is the same as the Democrats. If the Democrats hadn’t controlled Congress and the WH in 2009, there would be no Obamacare. So that is a difference, therefore the two parties are not the same. I’m not saying the GOP perfectly aligns with the conservative wing, but the old saying applies about not letting the perfect be the enemy of the good (or at least preferable).

        If the GOP were blown up, what would be left would be a smaller “America First” party which would never elect a president and would most likely give Congress back to the Democrats. Simple Venn diagrams show that if you take a GOP circle A and mark off a smaller America First circle B within it, circle B will be smaller than A. And the remaining Democrat circle C will be the biggest circle on the white board.

        The GOP as it exists today may not be perfect, but it is a bigger tent than any smaller subset. The GOP should be reformed, not blown up. That is political suicide which will send America careening toward full-out European socialism.


        • If the Democrats hadn’t controlled Congress and the WH in 2009, there would be no Obamacare.

          If they republicans hadn’t tried to pass amnesty in 2007, there wouldn’t have been a democrat controlled congress.

          It’s simply false that the GOP is the same as the Democrats.

          Keep telling yourself that. Any party that wants to give democrats 30 million new voters doesn’t disagree with anything democrats support, no matter how far in the sand you choose to bury your head.

          And that is exactly what will happen if Conservatives take control and boot the “Old Guard” to the curb. The party will “reform” by moving further to the right (or should I say ‘less to the left’) where it belongs and, once again, present an alternative to the liberalism of the Democrats.

          That is political suicide which will send America careening toward full-out European socialism.

          Have you taken a good look around, lately? America is already “careening toward full-out European socialism.” And hoping that the GOPe will do anything about that is like hoping that Iran doesn’t really intend to build a nuclear device. The GOPe IS the problem, just as much as the Progressives are.

        I agree with you Sundance! I call myself a Republican because of the ideals it represents, for example – US Constitution is the guiding force of our country, conservatism in values, an economic marketplace all for the growth and good for all of the American people. I didn’t sign up for people like Boehner and McConnell just to be figureheads and continue to talk the talk – for awhile I held out hope that they would be empowered once they had a Republican Congress. Instead there is no action at all from those two!

        Also, If you stand up against items like Obamacare, you stay with it until you accomplish what needs to be done. Don’t just throw up your hands and give up thereby showing how weak of a party for the common people they have become. Only Cruz truly believed in the cause he was fighting at the time.

        I also think a likewise movement to breakup the Democratic party should be done by the American people who call themselves Democrats in order to get candidates that truly represent the American people and not special interests. The special interests that are lobbying and the business and wealthy backers that contribute to these candidates should not outweigh what millions of the American voters want Government to do for America and its citizens, Corporations do not get to vote in America and wealthy individuals get one vote just like you, me and the rest of the American people.

      That’s right. Sometimes it comes down to some kind of fight (soapbox, ballot box, jury box, ammo box…), or flight.

      The thing that strikes me about America today is how angry so many people are. To me, there is more visible anger today in the American public than the day before the People’s Revolution in the Philippines first sparked, with the Aquino assassination. There was a lot of accumulated anger during the long running Marcos dictatorship, backed by prisons, torture and murder.

      I’m angry too. Although I’ve laughed at DT, don’t really trust him, he’s the only one consistently acknowledging so many sins against us, the bedrock and the republic. I feel like 2016 is the last train out if things don’t get better.

        I don’t enjoy being cynical but…
        I am being cynical when I say that (imo) its “too late ” for America to be “restored”.
        that doesn’t mean we should roll over & give up.
        I support Trump and Cruz and Cotton and Gowdy a few others who understand what’s happening.
        but its the WHY that is troublesome.
        the globalist NWO agenda is too entrenched and determined, at all costs, to destroy the sovereignty and independent spirit of excellence, free enterprise, and Constitutionality of The United States of America to be “voted away”.
        our electoral process of voting for those who represent us (if there are any to vote for) has been overwhelmed and tainted by fraud and corruption.
        Radicals are at work within our govt and our borders.
        have been for a long time.
        I don’t know what the answer is.

      The path to citizenship according to Trump is this. Illegals go home and apply like everyone else. Healthcare is too far gone to “fix.” Obamacare will self destruct by 2017. The regulations he has done by himself can be undone in one day by the next prez. A new AG can fire the DOJ/CRD lawyers. I doubt Bush would do that. The new GOP hero Kasich expanded medicaid. There is not much of a choice with a GOP politician. Besides that Trump is a GOP candidate.

      That rule only applies to republicans. Sure looks to me like democrats pretty much get everything they want. They never have to settle for candidates that stray from liberalism on anything, yet republicans are supposed to settle for anyone no matter how much they stray into liberalism.

      Yes this. The RINO/crat coalition. They pass the laws we hate when they come together to split the loot. I think there is a path to win as a 3rd party in the electoral college. But it is not easy. If no one candidate gets 270 electors it goes to the house to pick the president. If they can’t do it by inauguration day then the current VP becomes president until they do I think.


    • doodahdaze says:

      Her is a comment about the fact that the state legislature is the controlling legal authority regarding electors. It was shown in Floriduh in 2000 with Bush v. Gore. The state legislature was going to throw out the election and give the electors to Bush. They could have done it too.
      “The 2000 election reminded the American public that election rules matter.I Voters were forced to confront the hard fact that the national popular vote does not elect the President. Instead, the will of the people runs through the complex machinery of the Electoral College, a conceptual contraption of weights and counterweights. The dispute in Bush v. Gore2 showed that a dexterous legal manipulation of the Electoral College’s many moving parts could make a President.”

      Also…See McPherson v. Blacker, 146 U.S. 1, 27 (1892) (noting that the U.S. Constitution does not provide a specific mode for appointing electors, but instead “recognizes that the people act through their representatives in the legislature, and leaves it to the legislature exclusively to define the method ofeffecting the object”).

      The problem is congress will not pass rules to properly govern themselves or see to it that they are properly investigated for wrongdoing. It is like having an honor system tray of candy that they all take the candy but never put a coin in the slot.

      What we really need over Obamacare reform is congressional reform. Ignoring the root cause of the problem does not give lasting results. It is like Sundance says, painting over rust.

        If Obama is transforming America, he may also do away with the whole DC structure. And while no one wants a dictator, our current system is NOT serving We the People. Perhaps it’s time to look at letting each state manage itself. Totally. Either succeed or fail. No taxes sent to DC, no laundered funding coming back that dictates education and healthcare. No bailouts from successful states. And let the now-diminished preezy do what the Founders said was the job of the feds: Protecting the country.

    Thank you SD for putting into words what I’ve wanted to. I’m so tired of the political BS, lies, broken promises and kissing butt. I’ve talked to several close friends about DT, they look at me like I’m from Planet Blondie. Responses varied from 1) they were not going to vote – why bother – look at how the last election turned out, 2) voting is rigged – they voted against O and he still won, 3) they’re all crooks, 4) DT is just an actor. These are smart, college educated and hard working folks – are they just having a dumb down moment? I don’t know how to approach them anymore or even sway them to take a serious look at who the candidates are and really investigate their choices. I’ve even mentioned checking this site for information. Mr. Trump still has my vote, my support and I’ll still (in my little space of Planet Blondie) talk to people about the man who we need to turn this country around.

    Not too long ago this guy was a Democrat giving money to Hillary Clinton. He was pro abortion. Now all of a sudden he’s a changed man?

    Many things change as you grow; religion, underwear, girlfriends, etc. But not your values. Those are set in stone. When I was 13 I knew my political standing and it has never changed.

    I’m not buying.


    • joshua says:

      Trump gave money to politicians of ALL Parties when it helped advance his BUSINESS goals…he is not an ideology driven person as much as a goal driven person. In the business world, he was smart to give money to Hilliary at the time and for the purpose he wanted to achieve. That is NOT being a Democrat at all. That is the business world he is FIGHTING to tear now now as a candidate to run the country… he is not wanting to buy and own America…he has all he needs of money and power….he wants to CURE our NATION and make it great again by giving the CITIZENS a fair shot at building our economy ON OUR OWN and to repair our world wide image and HONOR. When I was 13, Eisenhower was President and everyone in my state were Democrats because they had always been Democrats. They hated Truman. And that was in 1954….the entire WORLD and especially OUR NATION has changed so much that had I formed my lifelong opinion based upon what I thought was a forever world view, I would merely have been very wrong.

      If that is true, that one knows their political standing when they are 13, then why do you think there has been such a change of heart in this country regarding abortion? Abortion was legalized by the SCOTUS in 1973. I can tell you from my own experience that my views have entirely changed since the 70’s. Science has advanced now to show us babies in the womb with incredible imagery never seen before. A lot of us believed some of the lies and BS of the women’s movement back then. Since that time, I’ve had my own children and that personal experience was life changing. Still, abortion is chosen in this country much too often but it’s numbers are trending downward, thank God. In my view, one life lost is too many.

      Ronald Reagan was also a democrat at one point in his political career and became one of our greatest Presidents and leader of the Conservative Movement. People evolve and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It’s called growth and maturity.

      Whether you like DT or not, you have to give the guy some kudos. He’s using his own money and I personally like his message. I think he’s worthy of being taken seriously.

      I also disagree with you Dee. People evolve, change opinions, change values. I was a long time Democrat. The party is not one I recognize anymore. They’ve changed and so have I.
      I value personal and religious freedom and liberty more than I did when I was younger.
      I value the sanctity of life more . I worry about the world we are leaving to our grandkids.
      I never cared about the right to bear arms, now it’s important to me. I was pro choice but no longer. People don’t remain stagnant imo, we’re constantly evolving.
      Trump excites me but also scares me. He is an unknown. But the status quo is unacceptable, so I’ll stand with Trump. I want my country back and I want to help make America great again.

      At 13, I was a democrat because that’s what people were in my family. By 15, I swore to my Grandmother, I would never vote for those Democrats! After having my first run in with Gov. Rockefeller! OH, he made me so angry!

      You said, “Many things change as you grow; religion, underwear, girlfriends, etc. But not your values.”

      Values, as defined as: a person’s principles or standards of behavior; one’s judgment of what is important in life.

      Those things definitely do change! IF a person grows, and matures, they definitely do change!

      Especially, as it comes to religion and politics!

      My understanding of those “gray areas” has totally changed. Even some of my understanding of right and wrong have changed. First, I had a drastic change of heart. Secondly, I grew up! Third, I gained wisdom. Fourth, I learned from my mistakes!

    When did Ted Cruz support the RINOs in the above-mentioned races? I know Rand Paul took major heat for stumping for The Yellow Turtle, but I never recall Cruz doing anything like that let alone voicing support for McConnell and the other RINOs.

    That said, say we get Trump. The GOPe is not just going to slink away with their tail between their legs. They’ve got millions to lose and cushy, cushy lifestyles and retirements planned. Those traitors, most likely aided and abetted by the dems, will double team the new admin and try to screw them over at every turn.

Did you see his article in Breitbart patting us on the head as ignorant rubes who read too much internet? We didn’t agree with him on his vote or support in any fashion of a secret trade agreement that enables Obama and our enemies, not even a preliminary vote. He got nailed on that. I also watched very closely the border invasion crisis last year and he simply did not stand up for us during that time. I think he keeps his cards pretty close to his chest. I do not like that his wife is a high up executive with Goldman Sachs. I don’t care what anyone says, they are traitors and not looking out for this country, only their wallets.

    Why Obama and Hillary must stop Donald Trump at all costs

    For once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. I’ve never seen them this outraged… this vicious… this motivated… this coordinated.

    Ten reasons why,

    Hillary or Jeb – ultimately there isn’t a damned bit of consequential difference

    1) Bush is establishment GOP. Jeb may not be a career politician but it is not for lack of trying.

    2) Jeb pushed for Robert’s nomination and then for his confirmation, we have Obamacare today because of Robert’s vote.

    3) Jeb pushed for Republicans to confirm Loretta Lynch.

    4) Jeb is a strong proponent of Common Core.

    5) Jeb is for amnesty for illegal aliens.

    6) Jeb has bellyached that the Republicans have to be more moderate.

    7) Jeb is playing a game of semantics using the words, “transform conservatism” rather than the failed policy of “compassionate conservatism” both are synonymous with big government and taking more money from the earners at the point of Uncle Sam’s gun while trapping more people in a substandard life, dependent on other peoples money.

    8) Jeb’s wife tried to avoid customs. Speaks to character of herself and her husband.

    9) After his stint as Governor of Florida he became a consultant at Lehman Brothers.



    Before becoming a GOP candidate Bush was serving as a director of Bloomberg Philanthropies, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg’s non-profit, in March 2014 when it announced a $50 million partnership with Planned Parenthood in Africa

    A recent Florida Governor who was a businessman (not jeb) stated that when you run an election you promise better schools, safer streets and lower taxes. That’s because that’s what the electorate wants to hear and you tell them what you must to get elected.

    IMO, the problem in telling people what they want to hear to manipuate for votes, we not only wind up being dishonest but we also get people fired up emotionally about issues.

    After this type gets elected , then they do what they want.

    I fear you will be disappointed Sundance. Simply put, Trump is not what he appears to be, including that means to an end you wish for.

    He may be many things, including a Trojan Horse, but he is not the answer. If people wanted a true committed conservative with a long history of being just that, then Ted Cruz fits the bill. And he’s not a self centered blowhard like Trump. Yet people gravitate to Trump because he is loud and mad and saying what we want to hear.

    What is wrong with Trump? I’ve made my points before. Let’s let American Thinker outline a few:


    “…First and most important, Donald Trump is not a Republican. Nor is he a Democrat. Donald Trump is a businessman and an opportunist. And would be, if his supporters get their way, the first Republican president who, at least as of April 26, 2011, has given most of his financial support to Democrats:

    The real estate mogul and “Celebrity Apprentice” host has made more than $1.3 million in donations over the years to candidates nationwide, with 54 percent of the money going to Democrats, according to a Washington Post analysis of state and federal disclosure records.

    Does that sound like someone committed to Republican values, let alone conservatives values? Not exactly the Koch Brothers, especially when one looks at just who some of these recipients of Trump largess were, such stalwart Republicans as:

    Harry Reid
    Rahm Emanuel
    John F. Kerry
    Charlie Rangel
    Chuck Schumer
    Teddy Kennedy
    Hillary Clinton.

    Hillary Clinton? Well, one hopes that he will refrain from contributing to Clinton 2016 if and when he finds himself running against her. On the other hand, don’t assume that he won’t. Could be bad for business, post-election, if Hillary wins.

    And for Trump, at the end of the day, it’s all about business, as his explanation for this supposed (by his supporters) conservative Republican’s substantial contributions to liberal Democrats – $50,000 to Rahm Emanuel, $10,400 to Harry Reid (in his campaign against Tea Party fave Sharron Angle – something Tea Party Trump supporters might want to consider) – shows.

    “Everyone’s Democratic… So what am I going to do — contribute to Republicans? … Am I going to contribute to Republicans for my whole life when they get heat when they run against some Democrat and the most they can get is 1 percent of the vote?..."

    What you are feeling is a seeping madness 220 million other citizens are feeling. I believe the progressive left, feeling the end of Obama’s reign coming, have really pushed their agenda to the point that the boiling frogs realize they are in hot water and are looking for any means of escape- which some believe will be Trump.

    Politics, today’s politics at least, is about working the margins. Trump will not go in and dismantle anything. He can’t. He can’t walk in the first day and eliminate the EPA or literally clean out the DOJ. Not even the DOE, arguably the most useless and offensive agency we have, will be dismantled.

    What we may end up with is a man who will look to do what he wants to do, regardless of impact, because he believes he sees the problems better than anyone else. We have that now, only on the Left. And with Trump, sadly we don’t even get the pleasure of the President being on the right either.

    No thanks. If he wins, he will realize even Trump can’t change the world. His first run in with the SCOTUS will teach him that.

    But we can, but it will take sixty years and three generations to do it, just like it was with the Left over the last sixty years. I’m already teaching my kids and their generation to be prepared. They get it.

    Buckle up, work the margins and keep pressuring change.

    Or just let it burn to the ground, thin the herd and start all over.

    I’m good with either.

      I’m not one of these people who just began tracking the candidates. I speak from watching them for years, and writing about what they chose to do when they have a choice to do something.

      Ted Cruz actually had decision moments. His choices, when they would have made a difference, were to work with the GOPe machine to undermine conservatives.


      The least worst of the rest of the candidates might be Ted Cruz. But don’t believe for a moment he is not part of the GOPe Machine.

      Cruz gave $240,000 to the NRSCC in 2014. The NRSCC, at the exact moment he gave the money, was entirely framed to eliminate opposition to Mitch McConnell and carry the goals of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Despite the anxiety it might create, this is a FACT.

      Yes, why don’t you keep brow beating Trump when you should be browbeating your own candidate who ALSO FAILED when push came to shove by the establishment.

      Your argument only convinces GOPe voters who’ve decided in advance they want more of the same GOPe schtick of fancy political talk while the border barn door is left wide open. Cruz also supports free trade. A bit ignorant given THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS FREE TRADE IN THE REAL WORLD!

      And what’s his name, Glenn Beck, that competes with him…that did that big speech to the Tea Party movement down at the Orlando Dog Track a couple of years back…he had a big huge eye in the middle of his white shirt under his blazer and his speech was about the ‘many points of light’. Which is a Masonic symbolism.

The numbers cited in the article are based on fresh polling by OpinionSavvy/InsiderAdvantage:

    “In Georgia, The Donald’s 30 percent is nearly double his closest competitor, Jeb Bush…. Next door in South Carolina, Trump is at 31 percent, while home state Sen. Graham is at a modest 7 percent. In Alabama, Trump is at a gasp-inducing 38 percent,” writes Graham.

    what exactly was in a Muslim bookstore so I went in.

    As I was wandering around taking a look, the clerk stopped
    me and asked if he could help me.

    I imagined I didn’t look like his normal clientele, so I asked,
    “Do you have a copy of Donald Trump’s book on his U.S.
    Immigration Policy regarding Muslims and illegal Mexicans?”

    The clerk said, “F— off, get out and stay out!”

    I said, “Yes, that’s the one. Do you have it in paperback?” …”

    The real problem for politicians these days is that to run for any political office, it costs a lot of MONEY and believe me, big MONEY donors are not donating that MONEY because they like giving away MONEY, they are donating that MONEY to get what they want.
    For all of the presidential candidates, except Trump, they need these donations, so are making promises to each donor to get the MONEY. By the time all of these promises are made, and you better keep the promises or you will get no more MONEY, you end up with what we have now, a wishy-washy, “yes I know what I campaigned on but…”, uniparty system that only “pretends to be your friend”.
    Trump, because of his own MONEY, doesn’t need to make promises to get the MONEY, where as all of the other GOP candidates do. Trump doesn’t have to “sell his sole” to get MONEY to run on.
    Don’t get me wrong, there are several of the other candidates I like, but have serious doubts about their ability to “practice what they preach”, because they need the MONEY.
    Think about it and FOLLOW THE MONEY!!!

    When Sundance first declared he was for Trump and why, I had to think about it. Once I did, the perfidious acts of the supposedly conservative GOP over the last 15 years came to mind and I realized the GOP with the current leadership will never change. And it’s not enough to simply replace bad leadership with equally bad new leadership. Those men simply recycle through the roles available and pick their like to succeed them.

    No, we have to smash the GOP as is currently exists. They are no longer a conservative party, but clones of the Democratic Party because they all get rich that way and they say to hell with American exceptionalism and the conservative Judeo-Christian principles upon which this nation was founded. Donald Trump is the only possible candidate to support because is is not an insider of the current corrupt political class.

    Trump has done an outstanding job of capturing our interest and earning a serious look. Without a doubt the Trump brand is defeating the Republican brand easily. Trump’s business and organizational success stems from running agile, lean groups following Trump’s vision. How he would operate as President of one of 3 coequal branches and head of a bloated, hierarchical organization of legally protected civil servants is the $100 trillion question.

    Clinton reshaped the Democrat party bringing many of the Reagan democrats back. Obama blew up Clinton’s democrat party by running and governing from the far left against the will of the majority. Trump is reshaping the race for the nomination and I can easily see a path to victory for Trump, but I’m still struggling with figuring out what a Trump victory would mean and how he would govern.
