worfMcallen, TX"Hillary would continue the destruction of
our nation."So, what will you do if Hillary Clinton becomes the
next president, nominates a liberal justice to the Supreme Court (maybe three?),
the Senate and House go Democrat? However, your version of destruction requires
some elaboration. Maybe you think "destruction" is adopting liberal
policies? Obviously you don't mean "destruction" like in "war
ravaged with death and destruction everywhere you look"? What, exactly, do
you mean by "destruction"?It makes me laugh hearing all the
grandiose predictions of ruin coming from the fringe Right. Every election cycle
we hear the same thing: "Elect us or the world will collapse into ruin."
The only problem with prophesying the destruction of the world is that it never
happens. It is more a strategy for scaring old people and those afraid to change
in society as a way of winning elections because conservatives have no ideas.
They just want to hang on, keeping things the same.I like to
remember how much Bill Clinton "destroyed" America with all the growth.
And I'm amazed at how Barack Obama pulled us out of recession and simply
Wall St. CougDallas, TX"If Trump ends up with the
nomination, I'll be curious to see where Cruz and Kasich supporters throw
their votes in November."It doesn't matter. Even though
Rafael Cruz insists that Donald Trump is not qualified and would be a disaster
for the Republican Party, he and the others will fall in line and vote for him
in November. They will do this because that is who they are. And Reince Priebus
will tell them that this is what they must do because it's not about
America, it's about the Republican brand.All the noise coming
from Cruz and Carly Fiorina will eventually subside, Republican leaders will
make nice, and vote for Trump. However, they will have a problem convincing
moderate Republicans to vote the way they say because the reactionary extremists
have taken over and are driving the moderates out of the Party.Only
the faithful and true-believers who accept anything and everything that comes
out of Trump's mouth will rejoice at his nomination. It doesn't matter
as he keeps re-enforcing their prejudices and misguided belief in his being the
Trump using government to make America "prosperous again" is advocating
more not less government. If the Donald is elected he will no longer be a
private businessman. Over statements created the great Trump fiasco.
@rubbergoose,It would take someone with Trump's character to
take the bull by the horns and make America prosperous again.Hillary
would continue the destruction of our nation.
Would staying awake after Benghazi have changed anything? Should she still be
awake today, having never taken a nap, since Benghazi?
I guess OLD is in this year...
Uuuuhg... These are the best people we have? Hillary Clinton... or Donald
Trump... that's my choices?I don't want either of them
running our military, or being the executive of our country, or being the
mouth-piece of our government in meetings and negotiations with foreign
nations.Maybe one of them is going to surprise me, and be the
greatest President the United States has ever had. You never know. I've
been wrong before.
Trump's already got Hillary in his sights. Did you hear his foreign policy
speech? He said Hillary went back to bed after Benghazi. That can't be
good.And she's on record promoting the lie about the video that
allegedly started the violence.Too bad Mitt didn't fight back
when Candy Crowley ganged up on him during the debate.
These two look like they could be a brother and sister, separated at
I hope it has to come down to a contested republican convention. The republican
party needs catharsis; it needs to implode and start from scratch. The
form of the destructor has been chosen, and it has orange hair. The role
of money in our system prohibits good people from getting into politics. Either
you have to sell out to get enough cash, which is what most do, or you're a
trump. A horrible person with lots of his own money. Either way, we lose.
Trump will win. I guarantee it. He has been raised up for this moment. The Lord
uses imperfect people to accomplish his purposes. It is not quite time for
economic upheaval so he will win and will reverse course on several disaterous
policies and give us 8-20 years of protection from economic and other calamaties
before more severe judgements. We are not yet fully ripe.
When Kasich is out of reach of 1237 delegates, Senator Cruz said he should drop
out,But when Cruz himself is out of reach of 1237, his "principle"
changes.Then he and Kasich joined together, tried to maneuver the election
to stop the only GOP candidate who can reach 1237 delegates, that is, Mr.
Trump.Why can't Senator Cruz just practice what he preaches,
and drop out of the race?
If Trump ends up with the nomination, I'll be curious to see where Cruz and
Kasich supporters throw their votes in November. I could see a good number of
them voting grudgingly for Hillary or just not showing up at all. Same could be
said about Bernie supporters too. It seems like his supporters and
Hillary's aren't too fond of each other as well.
I can't help but think how much Mitt Romney has assisted in Trump's
rise to power in the GOP. It seems every time Romney attacks Trump, Trump rises
in all the national polling and Romney becomes a smaller and smaller footnote...
