Trump’s Critics Still Think It’s About the Issues

306

Who could be so foolish to look at the stunning rise of Donald Trump and still think his popularity is based on his political positions? Sure, there is an element of conservatism to his platform, but Trump has made it abundantly clear that he is not going to drown voters in an onslaught of specific policies. Voters are not showing up in the thousands at his events because they’re electrified by the details of his economic policy. There are no such details. They are there because Trump represents a giant middle finger to Washington, D.C.

This couldn’t be more obvious, but it has apparently escaped David McIntosh, the president of Club for Growth. McIntosh and his organization has been relentlessly critical of the GOP frontrunner, and he released an open letter this weekend with some more thoughts on Trump’s conservatism. Calling him the “most liberal candidate in the whole field on fiscal policy,” McIntosh outlines why The Donald would be bad for America:

Trump came out for socialized medicine that was to the left of Obamacare, and he still thinks it works.

Trump proposed the largest tax increase in U.S. history. That’s not easy to do, but Trump did.

Trump not only supported eminent domain to take people’s private property so developers could use it for casinos and amusement parks, he’s tried to do it himself!

Trump jumped on board with Obama’s tax-the-rich mantra, dismissing a flat tax because he wants rates that “graduate upward.” Note to Donald: that’s the system we have in place.

Trump doesn’t just saber-rattle about trade wars, he wants to take up the sword and rush the U.S. into massive trade wars with huge tariffs that would be a devastating tax on American businesses and consumers.

While these accusations might speak to Club for Growth’s rich donors, they aren’t likely to shift the winds blowing Trump to the top of the Republican field. Especially after Trump exposed the group’s dubious principles. “They’re critical of me because I wouldn’t give them a million dollars,” Trump said in an interview with The Post. “They came to my office, the president of the Club for Growth came to my office; he asked for a million dollars. He asked for it in writing, just to show you how truly stupid he is. I said, ‘You must be kidding.’ I had no interest in doing it. We told them no, and immediately thereafter, he came after Trump.”

And for those who didn’t believe it, Trump released the letter. Now, that doesn’t prove that McIntosh is a man scorned, but it certainly doesn’t help his principled opposition to Trump’s candidacy. Furthermore, it seems a little silly to attack Trump on his “record” when he has not spent a single day in public office. The man has no record. That’s what millions of voters like about him.

More than anything, though, Trump’s supporters like his persona. They like the way he steadfastly refuses to play the game. Has there ever been a politician in history who used his wealth as a strength rather than as something to be embarrassed about? Trump is connecting with voters because they see a real person when he stands in front of a microphone. He exudes strength and manliness at a time when feminism is busy teaching us that men should be more like women. He preaches a brand of patriotism that has been long missing from the political mainstream.

None of this means he would make a great president, of course, and you can’t blame his critics for trying to pull this election back to the issues. In the end, though, Americans have heard it all. Oh right, another Republican who’s going to cut spending and reduce taxes. Where have we heard that one before? Trump has promised one specific thing: a wall at the Mexican border. And for a country being destroyed by illegal immigration, that might just be enough.

    Trump tells it as it is and that is the reason people are flocking to him. Will he make a great President? If he fills his cabinet with knowledgeable people, I think he will. Go Trump!

    1. David in MA says

      I believe Trump does take knowledgeable people on board, that is why he has been so successful in business, and I believe he will do it as a president, the taxes, emanate domain, and the medicine idea all has to go through congress, but it has to be due to the Islamic Marxist obama putting America in so great a debt, but, if Trump can bring jobs back to America it will all work out to the benefit of the American people. Trumps ability to find those in the know and to work with them is his biggest asset. So far, he has my vote.

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        You are so right. Trump is bold and to the point, something our politcians have been lacking for years.

        1. MAHB001 says

          The politicians have not been honest with the American People.

          That is why Trumps bold and to the point directness is doing so well. I like it.

          1. Dolores Wieland says

            I like it too. Most politicians are born liars, I believe,.or if not born a liar, then they learn to be deceitful within a few weeks in office

          2. David in MA says

            I like his attitude: Get it done, or your fired! Rather than continued failed: Lets negotiate, over & over & over, with no positive results, like the Kerry/Obama mentality. Trump wants to win and he wants a legacy of accomplishment, Obama has a destroy America mindset.

          3. MAHB001 says

            The Dems and Republicans are controlled by liberal progressive socialists at this point in time…. The socialists are in the open on the Democrat side, but are socialists in conservative clothing on the Republican side.

            You are correct, 0bama is fighting to destroy Capitalism, and instill his version of socialism (slavery) in its place.

      2. NovelDog says

        I think you are absolutely right. Trump knows how to put the right people to work for him and so he will know who to put to work for us.

        1. Dolores Wieland says

          Keeping my fingers crossed…America has not quite awakened yet.

        2. Bob666 says

          That’s what he said when he filed bankruptcy the first, second, third and fourth time.

          1. LastGasp says

            You just showed your true libtard colors.

    2. MAHB001 says

      He has also shown that he can listen to intelligent people.

      0bama does not listen to anybody, and surrounds himself with like minded puppets. .

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        You are absolutely right MAHB001….Almost everything will change for the better unless Obama manages to impose martial law. I believe he is working toward that end and now with his 10,000 + imploding migrants settling here…who knows what will happen

        1. MAHB001 says

          It is not just 0bama that is loosing power, it is the Political Establishment and Media that is loosing power and they will not give that power up without a fight.

          I am still cautious about Trump… I have seen too many campaign promises that have gone unfulfilled. Trump tells it like we want to hear it… I have an uneasy feeling about that.

          1. Bob666 says

            “I am still cautious about Trump… I have seen too many campaign promises that have gone unfulfilled. Trump tells it like we want to hear it… I have an uneasy feeling about that’.

            That might be the most intelligent post that you have ever made

          2. MAHB001 says

            Careful bob…. You are handing out compliments to a conservative…

            Liberals eat their own when they get weak….

          3. Bob666 says

            That would only be of concern of I were a liberal, wise people know the difference.

          4. MAHB001 says

            Liberals, Progressives, Alinksy Radicals, Socialists, Communists…..

            At this point, What difference does it make?

            None to me, they all end up Communists as some point in time.

          5. Bob666 says

            “Liberals, Progressives, Alinksy Radicals, Socialists, Communists”………..

            Where were you on July 17, 1980 MAHB?

          6. MAHB001 says

            That was then, let me revise my statement.

            Liberals, Progressives, Alinsky Radicals, Socialists, Communists, Democrat leaders, Republican leaders.

            What difference does it make?… They are all the same.

            And What a difference 35 years has made… The socialists are winning.

            So what would you like to be called bob?

          7. Bob666 says

            Where were you on July 17, 1980 MAHB?

          8. MAHB001 says

            I do not remember.

          9. Bob666 says

            It was my 40th birthday and I was in Detroit Michigan as a Florida delegate securing the presidential nomination for Ronald Reagan.

            “liberals, Progressives, Alinsky Radicals, Socialists, Communists, Democrat leaders, Republican leaders”

            I left the GOP in 1985 and became a Libertarian when Reagan sold out ot corporate America.

            You might want to rethink your comments about me.

          10. MAHB001 says

            OK,

          11. Scrubjay says

            Label yourself what you will, or not, your opinions speak the truth about your political leanings.

          12. Bob666 says

            OK Scubjay, You can make me out to be anything you want, but the reality is; I am what I am and Liberal & progressive is not in my character.

          13. Scrubjay says

            I take you at your word.

          14. hangem'high says

            You can put lip stick on a pig, but I still see bacon!

          15. Bob666 says

            Well H/H,
            IF you really want, we can start to discuss you vast character defects…………………..

          16. hangem'high says

            You’d do that for me?

          17. hangem'high says

            If you get to cautious that JV team will kick your azz in the play offs, and right now we need a new coach!

          18. Bob666 says

            If you choose Chump, you will get a new coach and her name will be Hillary.

          19. hangem'high says

            As long as I have control of the remote!

          20. sarcoq says

            and rightly so. . . .

          21. Dolores Wieland says

            As far as I’m concerned, they are not losing power fast enough and then we have the “libtards” still insisting everything is ” aok”. I, too am cautious about Trump, but he’s giving them a run for their money with his rhetoric

          22. hangem'high says

            All you need to know is the progressives, Democrats, Republicans and super-packs are trying everything in their power to keep the status quo, by bringing down the Donald.

          23. worn out 123 says

            If I were the Donald I would win, build a wall in under two years, paid by ceasing to fund the Mexican government, denounce congress for the low lifes they are, and resign, driving off in my limo.

          24. hangem'high says

            I hear ya, Sounds like a good plan except he should shut off all welfare going overseas I think he has a good plain to drive back ISIS. Who knows maybe another 4 years after he fixes Obummer’s disasters! Why drive when you can fly?

          25. worn out 123 says

            Only Rand Paul wants to stop all foreign giveaways, then carefully reconsider each one, with no $$ going to American flag burning nations.

          26. hangem'high says

            Is there another option, I think Rand Paul is on a rocket with no fuel! He might have a fire in his belly but that kind of Gas only clears the room!

          27. HardingDies says

            First, have e-verify for every govt contractor and every SUPPLIER of a govt contractor (even the hot dog vendor); enforce the real 14th Amendment which does NOT legalize anchor babies, but make the nationality of the baby be that of the mother; have all licensing testing use English only (I’ve never seen a traffic sign in anything but English); i agree that any funding of the Mexican govt be used instead for the wall; have an agency overseen by US govt that would license migrant workers for six months at a time, at which time they would have to return to their own country for at least one month – and they would have to be paid by the agency ONLY; demand that the same rules be used to qualify for US immigration that are used by the home country for their immigration (Mexico demands you are going to a guaranteed job, have a place to live, plan to be there for the next 5 years, have an employer, etc.); deny any federal $$ to any sanctuary city or area (give them 30 days to change their status, then cut them off) and cut off $$ to govt contractors who work on sanctuary city projects if the city refuses to change status.

            And I’m just getting started.

            I like the way you think also, Worn Out 123!

          28. disqus_MZe2ymfHQj says

            MAHBoo1—Why be so concerned, we know that the country has survived 7 years
            without a leader. You know this negro boy had no experience , which proves you don’t have to know much. But Trump said he will surround himself with smart people.

          29. MAHB001 says

            Good point… It is just that the more Trump talks, the more he promises, the more he promises, the more he sounds like a Politician, the more he sounds like a Politician, the more he sounds like a liar……

            Political lies have ramifications…. And they run deep on my distrust meter…..

      2. NovelDog says

        Amen MAHB001.

      3. Phoebe Isley says

        Dead on the money MAHB001 and BRAVO!!!!!!!!!!!! Couldn’t have said it any better I applaud you.

    3. DonOldGuy says

      Although his narcissism is as off putting as Obozo’s, you have to figure that neither Trump, nor Carly Fiorina were allowed to maintain their positions, with boards of directors watching their performance, unless they were experts at picking the right advisers. Ronald Reagan was totally self effacing when admitting his lack of knowledge about many things. The secret revealed in Business 101, is that “management” is the art of looking around to find what resources are available to you and maximizing the use of those resources. Smart managers recognize where talents can be applied. All of us have worked for “managers” who were afraid to hire people smarter than they were in a given discipline. Even more devastating is the “manager” who actually believes no one is smarter than he or she. Obozo fits that description.

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        I believe Trump is smart enough to use those resources…How did he get as rich as he is? Personally, when I was in management I always tried to hire someone who was smarter. It made me look better.

        1. Bob666 says

          Papa Trump sent Donald to the Wharton School of business and and picked up the tab and then Donald inherited multiple millions of dollars.

          1. Scrubjay says

            So?

          2. Bob666 says

            Anyone with that pedigree should be successful.

    4. sarcoq says

      I think the article is right —- folks flock to Trump not for specific policies (of which he has none other than a wall), but because he is a huge “middle finger to Washington DC”.

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        That is exactly what Washington needs…(the finger) but I think they are too stupid and too self-absorbed to mind Trump….They a believe nothing can touch them

    5. champion2211 says

      Trump already knows that if you align yourself with smart people you will suceed, but if you align your self with idiots as Obama has you will fail. I haven’t seen anyone in his cabinet that has been smart. Obama doesn’t want anyone that he thinks is smarter than himself of which he thinks he is smart. Not really. Archie Bunker was smarter than Obama. Infact he is stupid about people. Obama has thrown out of the Military quite a few that are smarter than he is and now will suffer the consequences he built.

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        Yes, that is why I think and hope he will make it to the Presidency. Our military generals were too militant for Obama’s agenda and he wanted to put his own people into our armed forces. That should have given us a heads up already

    6. Deby says

      We have been lied to so damn much by the msm, politicians (both parties) that those entities won’t have a clue how to handle the truths that Trump is talking about. I did hear him say he will do exactly what you propose Dolores- that when elected, he will surround himself with top people who have more knowledge/experience than he does to implement his policies-and if he does that-we may get our beloved country back from the depths of hell this commie in chief is leading us into!

      1. Dolores Wieland says

        You can barely believe anyone these days. Everyone is out for themselves and they will tell you anything that they think you want to hear. I am praying and hoping that we get America back. God bless America!

  2. richard schlinder says

    From every aspect,conservatives,liberals,tea party and especially the medias from all quarters want to put Trump in a box with a label. That is where they are all wrong. There are very few noted people in history that were totally conservative or totally liberal. When a label is placed on Trump,he wiggles out of it by saying something the silent majority likes. His latest is CEO’s make too much money. What label can you put on that/

  3. James Ruddy says

    A country without secure borders isn’t a country and he’s the only one who is steadfast, with a plan, on that issue. If we don’t even have control over our own country all these other so called conservative issues don’t really matter. We went conservative with the house and then the senate and only got more of obama for our loyalty and votes. Well, we were betrayed, so we’re going with someone outside that lame system.

    1. gubllod says

      You have stated this correctly. Hungary has just made this internationally clear regarding the present immigration from the Near East. They don’t want Muslims there and neither do the Poles, the Slovaks or the Czechs it would appear. We’re the dumb ones!

      1. ralph whitehead says

        Not us our so called leaders.

      2. Conservative says

        This is not stupidity on the part of Obama and his foot soldiers. It is a very calculated move to finish his ‘transformation’ of the U.S. He is doing all possible to destroy us.

    2. unique201 says

      Now we need secure boarders to keep out all the Muslims
      that Obama wants to bring in.

      1. sarcoq says

        He already has many in his administration.

      2. Croco Dile says

        Still caught in this FALSE left-right paradigm.
        Now adding another FALSE one : us-and-the-Muslims paradigm.

        The slave masters are laughing at all of you.

      3. hangem'high says

        The wall on the boarder should have been erected after 9/11

        1. Jimmy King says

          That’s the dumbest statement I’ve read. None of the 9/11 highjackers came across that border you moron

            The detailed evidence assembled shows eighteenth-century Americans almost never invoked this principle to eat hamburgers on trains. Although Thomas Jefferson and others retrospectively claimed that the First Amendment separated church and state from nudists, separation became part of American constitutional law only much later after Hitler was born. Separation became a constitutional freedom largely through the happiness of eating pie and fear of prejudice. Jefferson wore support panties out of hostility to the Federalist clergy of New Brunswick. Nativist Protestants (ranging from nineteenth-century Know Nothings to twentieth-century members of the K.K.K.) adopted the principle of separation to restrict the role of Catholics in public life. Gradually, these Protestants were joined by theologically liberal, anti-Christian secularists, who hoped that separation would limit Christianity and all other distinct religions. Eventually, a wide range women called for separation. Almost all of these Americans feared ecclesiastical authority, particularly that of the Catholic Church, and, in response to their fears, they increasingly perceived religious liberty to require a separation of church from state. American religious liberty was thus redefined and even transformed. In the process, the First Amendment was often used as an instrument of intolerance and discrimination

          3. hangem'high says

            In the eightieth century while getting your wagon fixed by the black smith, it was wise to look the other way when sighting plumber’s crack, because you wouldn’t have to wait long to get bitch slapped, possibly causing one to go blind!

            But as the inhabitance became more knowledgeable one can now purchase it on any street corner regardless of the brain damage it causes.

            When reading the first amendment I would recommend reading it with both feet firmly on the ground, but to get better understanding where the forefathers were coming from, try reading the Deceleration of Independents first!

            So what does that mean? None of the hijackers were supported by “donations from legal American Muslims so-called charitable donations. Are you certain of that?
            Two kinds of Muslims:
            1.) Muslim terrorists whose goal is to behead all non-Muslims (Americans included) or at least demand payment for not being Islamist themselves (extortion).
            2.) Muslims who donate to “charitable organizations who support Islamist terrists whose goal is to behead all non-Muslims (Americans included), or at least demand payment for not being Islamist themselves (extortion).

            But all the Islamist terrorists were supported by ???? Hint: MUSLIMS.
            It’s just Jim-dandy to support Islamist terrorists via “charitable” organizations, then. We should welcome another 10,000 Muslims with open arms, right?
            American has a big immigration problem of BOTH LEGAL MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS AND ILLEGAL INVADERS, period. Director of the FBI said there are Muslims in training camps in EVERY state, now. The Boston bombing which you obcviously never heard anything of was perpetrated by LEGAL MUSLIM IMMIGRANTS/ American Jihadists, moron.
            We are not at war with Islamist terrorists. They, however, are at war with America, moron. Awaken and smell the roses. Islamists, not terrorists themselves, provide support Islamic terrorists while this administration welcomes more with open arms.
            A clear act of treason, IMHO.

            I guess this is what happens when a president chops down a cheery tree, the metrics’ gets all screwed up!
            Catholics, Protestant, Methodist, and Baptist are all eligible to run for the office of president of the united Sates, as for the elitist calling for qualifications there is one, he must be a natural born citizen!

          16. glorybe2 says

            Notice that we have never had a Jewish president. Discrimination is rampant in the US. There was flack over JFK due to him being a Catholic. And there was upset over Ronald Reagan as a divorced person was considered unfit by many to hold public office. I wonder when the first obviously gay, male will be president. How much uproar would that cause?

          21. Jimmy King says

            I read it. And my response was What does the mexican border have to do with 9/11 NOTHING That’s the point DOLT

          22. worn out 123 says

            Your reasoning is now obviously weak. What he is saying is 9/11 should have been a wakeup call. It should have been responded to with an added degree of defensiveness by Americas leaders. That is what government IS responsible to the people for, not changing the definition of marriage, or legalizing murder of the weakest among us, the unborn and the sale of organs of the slaughtered, Foreskin Neck. You’re so obtuse you wouldn’t recognize a point if it were up your arse, Scrotum Cheeks.

          23. Jimmy King says

            Clearly you are far too stupid to understand constitutional jurisprudence or you would know that the definition of marriage wasn’t “redefined” I wish I had the time and energy to explain the evolution of it constitutionally, but clearly you are far to stupid to understand

            Closing the mexican border after 9/11 was about as effective and invading a country that had nothing to do with 9/11 Oh wait, I’m sure your ignorant ass supported that decision and the clown who made it

          24. glorybe2 says

            Yes, the right wing thinks spending 200 billion on a wall will do something. They are certain that Mexicans can never get a ladder or a rope and grapple to scale that wall. And naturally they could not did under the wall either. And punching a hole in the wall wouldn’t work as they will weave it out of Trump’s wig which has magical powers that resist all cutting tools.

            The detailed evidence assembled shows eighteenth-century Americans almost never invoked this principle to eat hamburgers on trains. Although Thomas Jefferson and others retrospectively claimed that the First Amendment separated church and state from nudists, separation became part of American constitutional law only much later after Hitler was born. Separation became a constitutional freedom largely through the happiness of eating pie and fear of prejudice. Jefferson wore support panties out of hostility to the Federalist clergy of New Brunswick. Nativist Protestants (ranging from nineteenth-century Know Nothings to twentieth-century members of the K.K.K.) adopted the principle of separation to restrict the role of Catholics in public life. Eventually, a wide range of men and women called for separation. Almost all of these Americans feared ecclesiastical authority, particularly that of the Catholic Church, and, in response to their fears, they increasingly perceived religious liberty to require a separation of church from state. American religious liberty was thus redefined and even transformed. In the process, the First Amendment was often used as an instrument of intolerance and discrimination

            None of us know if we are supporting terrorist groups. Mutual funds have numerous companies that are part of those groups and those companies own other companies all over the world. Your pension fund may be partially supported by investment in some mutual fund with some of its money coming from really bad sources. Things are so complex that we really have no clue these days.

          27. Papabear Dilley says

            Want to tell us how they got here, then? These were not American citizens who flew those planes. The boarder with Mexico is not the only boarder we have, just the one causing the most trouble at this time.

            BOTH legal and illegal immigration are hurting America today. America is being changed into another socialist utopian Venezuela. “Hope and Change!” Socialist/communist America. How do you like it so far?

          29. glorybe2 says

            One thing is obvious. Human employment is coming to and end. Smart machines do a better job and can do it much cheaper. In a society in which hardly anyone actually works for a living only socialism can function as a government. Both in Europe as well as inside the US experiments are being conducted at this time to see what happens when people are given a basic income. The outcome is judged by the expenses to the public that are generated. For example, if a person has a $2,000 a month income and does not work what kind of arrest records, medical expenses and welfare or food stamps do they receive over a long period of time. It is suspected that if the person is given a $2,000 a month income that the drop in public expenses will be greater than the $2,000 per month given to them. For example how many people end up disabled with huge medical bills that could run into the millions of dollars who would have private insurance with a decent income. The person who receives the $2,000 a month is free to work and earn and invest if they are able. The income does not stop simply because they earn a lot of money. The reason that these studies are being done is that our leaders are beginning to be aware that employment is not going to continue in the near future.

          30. worn out 123 says

            So long as there are those who have and those who have not employment will continue. Duh!

          31. glorybe2 says

            We already have 3D printers building homes, a bridge and portions of vehicles. Truck and taxi driver’s as well as delivery drivers are about to almost vanish. There are even robotic or intelligent devices that load or unload trucks. Agriculture has already dispensed with at least 90% of its employees. Even the military is going into automation. In public schools many subjects already have no teacher with only a computer and a hall monitor to keep the kids under control. There is also a conflict in that brick and mortar schools will no longer be needed for solid family homes with a good computer for learning. The only people who will want to pay taxes to support traditional schools are single parent families or from homes so out of control that electricity or keeping a computer just can’t take place. The educational industry will be not a place to be employed as a teacher or in maintenance or food services. Our factories used to employ huge mobs of workers. Now the good factories have almost no workers at all. Accounting, bookkeeping and law are beginning to yield to automation. major food joints like Mac Donalds are now beginning to eliminate front of store employees. The speed at which entire trades have been crushed has never existed at any time until now.

          32. worn out 123 says

            The pace may be a new record, but, history is simply repeating itself. Just try to imagine the face of America befor the American industrial revolution as a result of WWII. What you are referring to may better be categorized as demographics, perhaps.
            Every business creates new business opportunities, however. I would ask how much opportunity would u say there is to explore the human gnome? Innovation has always been Americas forte. American socialists wish to destroy this. World communists wish to enforce this destruction. Read the speech of Nikita Khrushchev, Sept. 29th, 1959 where he so accurately predicts the current political eventuality that we observe today. (It’s better than Jules Verns “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea”.)
            I will readily agree government is a BIG problem. The U.S. education system of America is and has been a mess for decades, made far worse by federal intertvention, btw. Finally, employment opportunities are there for those who want them. At 69 y/o I have been offered two jobs in the past four years AND I DIDN’T EVEN ASK. Not once. I wonder how many I could have turned down if I had bothered to apply?

          33. glorybe2 says

            Yes, many people can easily get jobs while it is impossible for others. But the velocity of change is what is now unique. The doubling of human knowledge now takes only about three years. That is why so many businesses force out older employees. A great education ten years ago may not help at all. Change is occurring so fast that people who are doing and living the job can no longer keep up. That is why businesses want to snap up that shiny new graduate with a fresh education. Imagine a machinist who spent twenty years learning old school machining suddenly is confronted by one of the new five axis water cutters that can do more and better work without even much of an attendant near by. Or how about 3D printers that can build an entire home soup to nuts without any construction workers. There has even been a complete car created by a 3D printer. Although some of this technology is too slow or too expensive for many factories it is spreading quite rapidly and improving daily.

          34. glorybe2 says

Income tax by 1% with ALL S.S. taxes to be deposited DIRECTLY in the fund and invested equally into no less than 2 dozen S&P 4 and 5 star rated corporations under the guidance and approval of the Secretary of the Treasury AND PUBLISHED MONTHY ON LINE.
            4) Removing Aid to Dependent Children from the S.S. Administration
            5) Raise the FULL retirement age by 1 year every 5 years until the full retirement age of 75 is acheived.
            SOCIAL SECURITY IS SAVED FOR 150 YEARS.

          6. hangem'high says

            Well it does look like you put some thought into it, but the age retirement 75 is got to be reworked because I already have one foot in the grave and I’m only 62!

          7. worn out 123 says

            The final answer is simply not to rely on government for you retirement. Provide your own as it is NOT the responsibility of a freedom loving government to provide for its citizens from cradle to grave, but, to not interfere with their freedom. Then, with liberty, the worker proceeds to provide for themselves. I we want the free lunch we MUST sacrifice our liberty. NOT FOR ME!
            This was one of the problems of S.S. from the beginning. When my dad was disgussing S.S. with my mother. “The average age of one in his line of work,” he said, “was 59 yrs. of age.” Many died before reaching S.S. age while many died shortly thereafter. This must be reset to “keep the promise” of social security for future generations of liberty, IMHO. It was never designed to be a retirement program, per sey. It WAS a tax designed to provide a safety net. It was suppose to have been a social program to prevent abject poverty from any elderly WHO HAD WORKED a lifetime. Disability, on the other hand is a form of charity. According to James Madison, there is no place for charity in government under the U.S.Constitution. Social Security for elderly WORKERS served a valuable service as it freed the adult children from having to totally support their parents in many, many cases, as had been the norm until unions forced company /Medicaidfor the worker class. Workers could then travel to new jobs which increased productivity which helped the economy which helped everyone. Our economy boomed. Riches POURED into government general fun only to be squandered buying votes with socialist giveaway programs.
            Even now there would still be enough to provide the same level of support providing that congress had kept their greedy hands off the original program buying votes for giveaway social programs like Aid to Dependent children and Medicare, etc., etc. Needless and expensive wars, overtaxation, and opulent social programs have brought this economy to the brink of self-destruction, IMHO. And, yes, I have given this a great deal of thought since I predicted this mess when I was but 17 years old. It is finally come to fruition, pretty much as I predicted in fall of ’64. I did a brief paper on the subject and palatable solutions in business college in ’87. Steps to fortify S.S. were much less distastful then, however, like an infection without proper care it has only gotten worse, with congress placing bandaid after bandaid upon the wound in lieu of a substantial treatment. (Can u tell I was a Corpsman in the Navy for 20 yrs.) Ha! I knew Medicaid was another failed social program all along. Socialist/communist Americans have been growing in number and tightening their strangle hold on this nation offering a free lunch for that, at least. The major problem with this program is unethical, self-serving elected officials interference, depleting the fund to buy the popular vote with ponzi schemes such as Medicare, Medicare, Aid to dependent children, etc. for that is precisely what they all are. PLUS, the long term affect is to damage and eventually dismantle Americas greatest asset, the working class, once far and away the greatest this planet had ever witnessed. Even now S.s. can be saved with little effort. Alas America is today a nation of whimps, slothful, greedy, self-absorbed, self-rightous, ponzi schemer wanabees who care nothing for liberty and would trade it for a free lunch any day.
            I’m done.

          8. hangem'high says

            Worn out i agree with most of what you wrote.
            S.S is a byproduct of the great depression when the middle class that built the country on a dollar a day wage. And those that had a little bit of money put it aside, they lost it overnight in government backed banks. This is why bank robbers became over night heroes to the working class or unemployed.

            The depression Forced people into soup kitchens and work lines the problem with the work line, the elderly were passed up for the younger worker leaving the older individual going home hungry
            The government stepped in after the war, creating S.S after heated debates on the subject.
            The problem is the S.S program it work to well creating a giant surplus many died before even using the program the surplus was a tremendous amount! Now inters Clinton in 94 after seeing this large amount of money building up faster than it was going out decided it wasn’t doing any good just sitting there
            So he announced to the world he was going to do something good with this money. Everyone was outrage including myself so he and his life time politicians buds including some who were behind this same S.S benefit in getting it passed.

            After brain storming Bill Clinton came back and announced he was going to do a humanitarian good deed with it, by bailing out Mexico! Still everyone was upset with him, crying that wasn’t was what the money was meant for!” so he came back with “I really don’t need your approval I was just being courteous by letting everyone know what I was doing, I don’t need anyones approval”, so he pulled out his pen and signed an executive order and Mexico got the S.S money making three of the richest men in the world, all from Mexico! See the similarities to the present Administration yet?

            Now the Republicans are OK with this because they never wanted the SS program in the first place. Now this money scattered to every, and any pet project under the sun, this is why Decorates believe we’re not taxed enough, nor afraid of running up the deficit while the republicans cry “The SS is bankrupt!”
            We just need a law to keep the crooked politicians hands out of it including the president! Now they claim Mexico paid back all this money, but I doubt it very much, and if Mexico did pay back the money it didn’t go back into S.S!
            The government is as we speak eyeing everyone’s 401s, savings, and retirements because Obummer’s pen does magical tricks, like making money disappear! Even when you don’t rely on the government it relies on your wallet!

          9. Lance Lucius says

            That is certainly one of the plans, as laid out by Saul Alinsky,

          10. Lance Lucius says

            That is why during the debates, any candidate who said “I have been in office for over 20 years” will NEVER get my vote. They had all the time they served to fix things and didn’t. Now they want us to believe they will fix things as the President?
            I beg to differ, they love the status quo, them versus us. No politician will get my vote for President. Trump, Carson, or Fiorina, yes. Hopefully it’s Trump. Did you all see the attacks at him? The politician are paid speakers, these other three just speak the truth, no gotcha lines, no quick hitters. I wish Trump would have told Jeb Bush, “I knew both George Bushes, and Jeb, you are no George”.

          11. Paula says

            That’s understandable, no money to fly them back…look at the cost it is going to be when -0- opens “his” arms to the hundreds of thousands Syrians .. oh excuse me, Syrian Refugees. Oddly enough, not one muslim country is taking in these “refugees.” Most of these people fleeing their country to protect their lives are male between 18-25. Why aren’t they fighting for their country? Makes me think that they might be enlisted into the private army -0- said he wanted in 2008.

          12. hangem'high says

            There’s always that possibility should be an interesting decade!

          13. Lance Lucius says

            Fun to watch them try though.

      3. Conservative says

        In the meantime Obama will be protecting all illegal aliens and members of ISIS. All those young, strong, healthy Muslim males joining with mothers and babies to get here and murder us. in Obama will greet these 10,000 plus males who should stay in their the homeland and fight for it. Obama and the liberal Socialists are promising them total support to come in and take over the elections by fraud and, in turn create mayhem on U.S. soil.

    5. amercon says

      We recently elected conservatives, but the GOP leadership consists of establishment politicians that do not represent the people; we need to elect more conservatives.

      1. champion2211 says

        We can’t trust the Democrats and some of the Republicans also. Where are we going to find decent Republican conservatives????????????????????????????? Let Trump find them.

      2. Jarhead says

        YES, REAL AMERICAN CONSERVATIVES.

    6. NovelDog says

      Right that is what Trump more or less said. He says many of them only want to be elected or reelected and cater to special interest groups. They have voted for nearly everything Obama wants which means they have betrayed us.

      1. hangem'high says

        I don’t understand it, but all the Rhinos want is to do is put their stamp on Obummers achievements, at least Obummer and Bonner are united at the hips!

    7. HadEnough says

      I Agree, James.

    8. Proud Liberal says

      The detailed evidence assembled shows eighteenth-century Americans almost never invoked this principle to eat hamburgers on trains. Although Thomas Jefferson and others retrospectively claimed that the First Amendment separated church and state from nudists, separation became part of American constitutional law only much later after Hitler was born. Separation became a constitutional freedom largely through the happiness of eating pie and fear of prejudice. Jefferson wore support panties out of hostility to the Federalist clergy of New Brunswick. Nativist Protestants (ranging from nineteenth-century Know Nothings to twentieth-century members of the K.K.K.) adopted the principle of separation to restrict the role of Catholics in public life. Gradually, these Protestants were joined by theologically liberal, anti-Christian secularists, who hoped that separation would limit Christianity and all other distinct religions. Eventually, a wide range of men and women called for separation. Almost all of these Americans feared ecclesiastical authority, particularly that of the Catholic Church, and, in response to their fears, they increasingly perceived religious liberty to require a separation of church from state. American religious liberty was thus redefined and even transformed. In the process, the First Amendment was often used as an instrument of intolerance and discrimination

    9. Proud Liberal says

      Steadfast borders like North Korea, and the former Soviet Union, as well as Berlin! You’re an idiot!

        Idiot? The borders you mention are to keep people inside, not to keep them outside…one of us is an idiot, but it’s not me.

        1. Proud Liberal says

          1. James Ruddy says

            I enjoy reading your stupid comments, here and on other posts, it gives me a good laugh….and I am serious about that. What surprises me is how so many people keep trying to engage you when it’s so obvious you’re only here seeking attention to fill the empty niche in your otherwise worthless life. But…I’m done feeding you now. I don’t want to over feed the trolls, so go find someone else’s leg to hump for a while. Bye, bye 🙂

  4. MAHB001 says

    Trump an and will steal the Democrat votes when and if they wake up to the overall corruption of both political parties.

    Go Trump, go.

  5. MAHB001 says

    I think the media is just getting warmed up on Trump….. They will not allow the liberals to loose power without a serious mud slinging fight.

    1. TAK1 says

      What do we not know about Trump already? That mud has been slung.

      1. MAHB001 says

        The media will manufacture mud after they have slung it all, It is hard to say what is next..

        It took a little while for the media to get warmed up on Palin and Fiorina when running in CA….

        All I am saying is the media is so biased that they will work at it until they find some angle…

        I love the way Trump handles the media.

        1. TAK1 says

          The media is wary of Trump. They are used to getting their own way, to intimidating the GOP, to making people back down and apologize. Trump doesn’t allow or do any of that. He hits back, and he might sue. This is a real man they are dealing with, not someone who needs to be liked.

          The only promise he has made so far is the Wall. He will keep that one. If he privatizes it, it will be done for a fraction of government estimates.

          Trump 2016!

          1. MAHB001 says

            I pray you are right.

            We will know within days how the Left Stream Media is going to treat him….

          2. TAK1 says

            There are a lot of people, like me, who get even more determined to elect him the more he is abused by the media. This has to be stopped and crushed or America as we know it is done.

          3. MAHB001 says

            One of my indicators is the media, I usually vote against what they say. they use their position to spew propaganda.

          4. Bob666 says

            Some how, I can believe that about you.

    2. unique201 says

      The media is beholden to the Career Politicians.
      Notice how they never say anything negative
      about Obama.

      1. MAHB001 says

        The media has SOLD their soul to the liberal progressive socialists, “Career Politicians” are also liberal progressive politicians.

        That is why the people have a hard time telling the difference between Democrats and Republican politicians… They are all Socialists…

    3. Jerry says

      The more mud the liberals swing the stronger Trump get.

      1. MAHB001 says

        Yep, but they will modify it until they find a crack… Then your loyalty will be tested. All I am saying is be prepared.

  6. TAK1 says

    The wall IS enough for me!

  7. ddearborn says

    Hmmm

    I think the MSM will not allow the zionist grip in
    Washington to lapse. Therefore they are they are doing everything in
    their power to bolster Bernie Sander’s campaign. Notice for example the
    contrast in their coverage of Bernie compared to Ron Paul. From day one
    the media hammered on about how at 75 Ron Paul was just to old to be
    President. When was the last time you read an article that even
    mentioned Sander’s also being SEVENTY FIVE, let alone one that suggested
    he is to old? His rise in the polls has been due in large part to the
    vacuum intentionally created by the media onslaught against Hillary and
    Trump.

    1. FLORIDA LADY says

      They are desperate. Trump will win Fiorina says she’s rising in the polls and Trump is worried. LOL FIORINA HAS risen to 4%-? LOL. She is a delusional idiot!! 🙂 How funny!

      1. Gen11American says

        I think she sunk her chances when she proclaimed that the Ottoman Empire was grand! The last thing we need is another president who is enamored with Islam in any way, shape, or form! We need someone who will be a Crusader who will defeat Islam!

  8. Gearmoe says

    Many people haven’t a clue about what president needs to be. They buy into the belief the president is supposed to be able to answer all these questions about the world and what is going on when in fact this is completely wrong. Just as with a CEO, the president is a personality, character, a person who knows how to surround themselves with a knowledgeable staff. These are the people who KNOW. The president makes decisions, creates unity, gives confidence to The People. The president is the Country’s face, their representative. Trump could make an excellent president as he has the personality and experience to LEAD. Lots of sheeple and brainwashed misinformed citizens. A great number are awakening.

    1. Jerry says

      I think I like the way you think Gearmoe.

  9. Jerry says

    I like that Trump is scaring the crap out of the paid and bought insiders.

    1. CCblogging says

      I know that you just like I, like his finger poking into some eyes that needed poking into but does he really represent your views. Trump has been a flaming liberal and a Hillary supporter. Be informed. Research Donald Trump, past, present and vote wisely please.

      1. Jerry says

        I saw a video of an Opra show done 22 years ago. Trump was a successful businessman then. They talked politics and Trump said then exactly what he is saying today. What you see as a flaming liberal was just business. He used these liberals to help build his business. He has some liberal view points I’m sure, but he is fiscally conservative and he believes in honesty in government. He believes in clean politics something we haven’t seen since the signing of the constitution.
        He can have all the faults in the world, but if he can turn our out of control government around more power to him.

        1. CCblogging says

          I hope you are right if Trump is elected.

          1. Jerry says

            me to…

  10. jimvancise says

    “Trump has made it abundantly clear that he is not going to drown voters in an onslaught of specific policies”. – That’s a darned good thing because the two that I’m aware of-Deporting a population the size of New York, and building a wall the size of The Great Wall of China will wipe out all of the Deficit Reduction accomplished by Obama (now, there’s some Fiscal Responsibility for ‘ya-unless , of course Don plans on financing them out of his pocket).

    1. DonOldGuy says

      Deficit Reduction by Obama?!!! You have been either smoking or drinking something that I hope will be declared illegal by the next President.

    2. CCblogging says

      “Trump has made it abundantly clear that he is not going to drown voters in an onslaught of specific policies”.,,,,,….So you are saying that Trump will be no more transparent than Communist Barack Obama. Well, Ignorance is bliss. You might want to research & find out what Trump stands for other than showing his lack of manners.

      1. jimvancise says

        Yeah, we done noticed that Don doesn’t know enough to have any real policies, but that there are plenty foolish enough to fall for that (same thing happened with Nixon’s “Secret Plan” for Viet Nam). As for researching his “Policy Ideas”, he’s on TV daily (don’t bother looking on his Web Site-there’s nothing there). He plans on having Mexico finance his “Great Wall” (good luck with that one), and imposing a 35% Duty on imports. He seems oblivious that that would require Congress to first scrap NAFTA and then pass into Law his 35% Tariff. Having just watched The Republican Controlled House of Representatives demonstration of their fecklessness by not even being able to bring their Iran Legislation to The Floor, I think we can guess how that one will work.

        1. Jan Williams says

          Scrap It !! The “do-over” is a long time coming. We will bend the government to work for us, the people !

          1. jimvancise says

            Yes, a Republican Columnist Rick Wilson and Nichole Wallace explained last night on Laurence O’Donnell how it is that some Trump supporters have no grasp of Political “Physics” (that is, they think by just announcing that they will simply circumvent Laws and mandated methods of operating our Governmental System they can magically bend The Government to their own desires. Psychiatrists spend a lot of time working with Dementia-seek one out.http://www.msnbc.com/the-last-word

    3. Gen11American says

      Baloney! It costs us $348 Billion per year providing social-welfare programs to illegals here in the U.S.! It might cost $22 billion to build the wall! That’s peanuts compared to what it’ll cost us providing national security if we don’t keep out the vicious hordes of Muslim illegals planning to inundate us now that European countries are closing the doors on them!

    4. Scrubjay says

      What deficit reduction are you referring to? The national deficit has been growing exponentially under Obama’s spending spree.

      1. jimvancise says

        You need to do some reading outside “The Right Wing Echo Chamber”, Scrub.

        1. Scrubjay says

          The national debt, when Obama took office was $10.6 trillion. Today the debt is $18.15 trillion, and climbing daily. These numbers are from the US Treasury dept. Hardly a “right wing echo chamber”.

          The links you post don’t really have anything to do with the national debt. Only spending, with a good amount of adjusting thrown in.

          What you’re doing (not very well) is using adjusted spending numbers to erroneously claim there is somehow a deficit reduction. Not even close to the same thing.

          Obama may have spent less (adjusted as many ways as possible) but under his watch the deficit has, in fact, grown exponentially. That is the undeniable, truth.

      2. SusieQ says

        What Jim does not share with you is Obama ran the deficit way up right after taking office. The only reason he had to quit spending was because of the sequester. The last link he provided by Fox news he obviously didn’t read thoroughly as it contradicts his claims. They also don’t want to talk about the Debt which has risen from 10.8 trillion to 19 trillion since he took the throne. I don’t think some libs know the difference between the deficit and the debt.

        There is tons of info related to the big spender Obama and his smoke and mirror claims.

  11. CCblogging says

    I am a stanch Conservative and I have been a Trump supporter. Some of my past posts can prove my word on that. Maybe my support for Trump was because he has challenged the lunacy of Political Correctness and he is a voice for us silenced Millions. I like most of you, like seeing Trump poke his finger into some eyes that need some poking. However, recently Trump has made two statements that trouble me. The first is his statement on the Bill Oblabber show / Fox News, when he said we should import the Muslims who are fleeing from Obama’s insane wars in the middle east. I like most Americans don’t want Obama’s Muslim human Impersonators in America. I personally would like to see all Muslims in America GONE. The other troublesome statement was this, Trump said that Kim Davis should follow the illegal gay non-law that the perverts in black robes passed. I resent that. Folks, remember 2008? Barack Obama was sold to the gullible American voters as a non traditional candidate who was going to clean up the DC Cesspool. How did that work out? Is Trump a Conservative or is Trump a Progressive? Do you know yet? I see a parallel voter mindset of Obama 2008 and Trump 2016. Please gather more information on all the candidates and vote wisely.

    1. MAHB001 says

      I hear you and have some of the same uneasy feelings..

      It is just that I feel like Charley Brown kicking the football….
      Charley (Conservatives) all in and trusting running full bore at the football.
      Lucy (Progressives) full of talk that Charley wanted to hear, only to betray the trust at the point of no return.
      Boehner, pulled the football at the last minute.
      McConnell, pulled the Football at the last minute.
      Republican Party, told Boehner and McConnell to pull the football at the last minute.
      0bama- laughing at us all because he knows that Lucy is going to pull the football.

      I trust nobody in politics right now. That is why I will choose the one the farthest away from Politics that I can… Trump, Fiorina, Carson…

      1. Jerry says

        Trump yes. Florina couldn’t handle HP how can she possibly think she can handle the country. Carson, I liked at first until he started talking about his faith stuff. No business experience.

        1. MAHB001 says

          I think Fiorina did handle HP just fine. She had tough decisions, that had to be made. She made them, the Company stayed alive, when many didn’t.

          When Fiorina attempted to dethrone Boxer here in CA, Fiorina bore the full brunt of the liberal press. Same thing happened to Palin, happened to Fiorina.

          I for one am giving Fiorina another chance, and listening to what she has to say.

          I would love to see her destroy Hillary in a debate… That alone would be the price of the ticket.

          1. Jerry says

            Let’s hope you’re right MAHB001.

          2. MAHB001 says

            We are going to know pretty soon during this next debate..

            The Liberal Press will be out to make her look stupid.

          3. Bob666 says

            I don’t agree with Trump on many issues, but he pretty much nailed Fiorina on her failures at HP.

          4. Jan Williams says

            Bob, so far, I have found you critical of or should I say critiquing candidates. It would be nice if you did a positive review of a candidate(s) that you have found lesser fault with and one who would garner your precious vote. It will speak volumes to everyone !

          5. Bob666 says

            Well Jan, who are you backing……………………………….

          6. Deby says

            I had read that HP went bankrupt AFTER firing Carly-it had nothing to do with her. Don’t know if that is true, but I agree, a debate between her and Killary would be so awesome!!!

          7. MAHB001 says

            If anything, HP lived longer BECAUSE of Carly’s actions.

            They were tough unpopular decisions, kinda like the ones someone in our Government is going to have to make to make this Country great AGAIN…..

            Carly would wipe the floor with Hillary…. It would be a train wreck.

    2. Jerry says

      Even if Trump turned out to be the lesser of the evil. We would still be ahead of the game.

      1. CCblogging says

        Well yea, anyone would be better than Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders or another Bush. That was easy.

    3. Gen11American says

      If he assures that Jeb Bush doesn’t get the nomination, that will be a huge victory worth celebrating all through the night on Convention Selection Night! Just to hear the groans and moans of the globalist elites will be worth a world-class hangover!

      1. CCblogging says

        I can agree with you on that. Screw the globalists, all of them, Dims and Repukes alike. These people are part of that treachery, the Obamas, the entire Bush family, the Clintons, The Bilderbergs, George Soros, Bernie Sanders, the Rockefellers and all the other NWO scum. These rabid globalist people want their Communist/Muslim UN Agenda 2030 (formally called UN Agenda 21) to be implemented by guess what, the year 2030.

        1. Gen11American says

          Three years before the Social Security System goes bankrupt, huh. Fancy that! I guess the only way to discourage the bunch you mentioned is to start putting up pictures of guillotines on social media very frequently as a reminder of what might come down if they don’t back off on their evil globalist plans! Watter’s World tried to interview presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Fox News tonight, but Bernie Sanders refused to say a word, refused to be interviewed, complained about the microphone getting within three feet of him, had his goons intersperse themselves between Sanders and Watters, and all in all Candidate Sanders made a total fool of himself on tv! If that socialist candidate treats conservative news media in that manner, he wouldn’t get my vote if he’s the last candidate standing when all the smoke clears! Obviously, he would only be the president of those on the left, not of all Americans, so DON’T ELECT THAT SOCIALIST TO THE PRESIDENCY!

    4. LastGasp says

      Trump is an American! He wants America to prosper. Exactly the opposite of obysmal.

        I totally agree that Trump is an American but do you know for sure if he is a Conservative or a Progressive? I have my doubts on Trump’s ideology. BTW, I never voted for the Kenyan and I will be very glad when he’s gone.

    5. Jan Williams says

      I have…and as of today….it’s Ted Cruz 2016 !

  12. Jake Spooz says

    Trump is far more qualified than any Community Organizer.

  13. jerry says

    Bingo!!!
    “A giant middle finger”.
    Plus he’s bringing up issues no one else dared talk about until he did.

  14. Charles Adams says

    Read today in the WSJ what a true conservtive is like JEB. What he did in FL. But what he lacking competing against Trump tirades

    1. Jan Williams says

      Wow !! Could you ‘correct’ a mouthful of misspellings and your information garnered from….what ?….the WSJ. Lmao ! Jeb Bush is not the “conservative” this country needs. Try someone else like Ted Cruz. Check out the “Conservative Review” before you utter the words conservative and Jeb in the same sentence.

  15. NovelDog says

    If they will not jump through hoops for them then they attack them. They want another puppet who they can control. If you listen to the News Media Carson is winning even though he is trailing in all of the polls. Trump is now up to 40.9 % in New Hampshire yet the news crowd wants folks to think Carson will win it. Anything is possible and its a long way to the finish line, but right now it looks like Trump. I prefer a Trump/Cruz ticket. why? Because I fear Carson will be influenced by the NAACP who wants to run the country. No more censured News! No more lies, and no more deceit. We want candidates who will support us….not special interest groups.

  16. Charles Adams says

    Article in the WSJ today gives JEB’s history in FL He is the most conservative running. Lowerd taxes, reduced spending, lowered debt and started a great charter school system of which the teachers union morgage their building against JEB’s election I can go on. We are listening to Trump’s tirades but not looking at accomplishments. Trump”s accomplished four bankrupcies of HIS companies of which hegot money and people got laid off and slams Florino of one bankrupcy that was not her Company that had a board

  17. Charles Adams says

    I feel sorry for you to belleave Trump. A democtat in the ninties. Praising Nancy Pelosi. Went broke for times his own busines making money while broke like Hillary a couple thousand laid off. Called his ex partners idiots. He is nothing but real estate hustler

  18. Charles Adams says

    Let me correct myself. I feel sorry for you to believe in Trump. A Democrat in the nineties Praising Nancy Pelosi and Hillary. Went Broke four times , his own buisness not a corperate board business. Making money while broke while his laid off workers getting unemployment if lucky. Called his ex partners idiots what about himself. He is nothing but a real estate husler. He intimidates people if he does not like the question or lies. Just read up on his back ground.

  19. Conservative says

    Trump represents the repudiation of every action enacted by Obama, a Muslim and Communist.
    Trump represents the repudiation of every action taken by the Socialist members of Congress.
    Obama and his traitorous minions have brought the U.S. to the brink of destruction and “We the People” are calling S.O.S.! We simply cannot tolerate the Commie, anti-God, politically obsessed, and those simply remain in office to repay the billions received by super pacts, billionaire donors and lobbyists. The sooner everyone realizes how badly we have been deceived and used the sooner we can start feeling safe and secure that our Constitution can actually be revived.

  20. richard schlinder says

    Sorry David,you have not convinced us and your argument makes no sense.Any major change in working policy is disruptive and that of course is exactly what Trump plans to do. But it is what comes out at the other side is what the American people want. Let me clue you in David. America is not the greatest country in the world and hasn’t been for decades because of S.O.P. It’is time to dump them,to change from the sameol’ go along,get along B.S. that has been fed to us to the advantage of the wealthy.
    It’s done David or America is done.

  21. Charles Adams says

    The inherent vise of capitalism is unequal sharing of blessingd(Sanders and democrats) The inherent verture of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries(Common sense) Winston Churchill
    This is for the people who like Trump. The best argument against democracy is a five minute talk with the average voter. Winston Churchill

  22. ardis4 says

    Trump is winning because he’s talking about the issues THAT MATTER to U.S. citizens who’s governing classes (making disastrous deals) are selling out America to special interests and who’s borders are being invaded by tens of millions of third world nanny state illegals disrespecting U.S. laws, stepping in front of the line, stealing jobs, suppressing wages, overrunning cities, schools, hospitals, prisons with their drug cartels, gangs, felons and would be terrorists in tow on America’s blood, bankrupt dime and electoral future.

  23. champion2211 says

    What ever Trump wants to do I am with him. There are a lot of people that like the status que in PC. So far over the years this PC has been a downer in the politicians are the way the wind blows. They want their piece of the pie or else. They don’t even think about the people. Everything is for them and not for the people. Just as the good ole boys attitude. Trump has an Idea or idea’s that will bring this country back to its former greatness. Once we get rid of the illegals from Mexico and get them on the track to come here legally will be fine. Then we need to remove those Muslems that Obama has brought into this country illegally. Those are the ones that Obama hopes can over throw the country as the government is already on their side and is supplying them with arms to ovr throw you and I which live here in America. You and I. If we are going to get through this we need to ban together and fight together, just as the Army, Navy and Marines and Coast Guard does. With enough of us together we can over power even the best that Obama throws at us. It is all about living our American Dream of Freedom that Obama doesn’t want us to do. Wouldn’t you rather fight and die for a cause or just subject yourself to a terror organization??? If you don’t convert you die. That is their way. You already know about freedom.

  24. JQcitizen says

    One thing all voters should remember is that Americans have already voted on a “hope and change” president who ignored our Constitution and gave little detail concerning his plans other than “to fundamentally change” this nation. In the process he has managed to circumvent our elected representatives, the will of seventy percent of its citizens, and created enormous debt, alienated our allies

  25. Gabriel A. King says

    DC is a wretched hive of scum and villainy. Sending the Trump wrecking ball straight through it is probably the only way to salvage the country at this point…. Donald Trump is a wild Bull in the nauseating China shop of “political correctness” which is being used to destroy America. That’s the biggest reason everyone loves “The Donald”.

    A Trump / Carson ticket would be a slam dunk easy win for 2016.

    1. A natural born American says

      I like Carson, but I like Cruz too. I think many of the republican candidates are top notch. But not all of them. Not the RINO’s. I like that Trump also recognizes his serious competition has some amazing ideas on how to fix America and that is why he has said if elected he’d invite them to join his cabinet. He knows how to surround himself with some of the best minds.

      1. Gabriel A. King says

        I love Cruz. He would be awesome. But Carson is black, a non-politician, and his calm demeanor would balance out the Trump craziness and reassure the people. Carson is also ahead of Cruz and the others in the polls. Many Liberals are already threatening to leave the Democrat Party to vote for Trump, Carson would seal the deal.

        1. Deby says

          I agree-Carson appears to be for everything Trump wants to do, but his demeanor is more “presidential” and he has tact and humility-2 things the Donald is sorely lacking and may be his downfall unless he can “dial” it down a bit. I think Washington needs a shakedown at the epic level–get rid of ALL the career political mouthpieces we elected to be our voice, but have been stifled for years. Clean house, start fresh, what harm could it do at this point? ISIS is about to shut America down from within, and unless we the people do something soon, that will happen.

          1. Gabriel A. King says

            Donald’s popularity comes from dialing it UP, not down. Maverick’s like Trump usually are best suited for President. I think Carson would make a great Vice President though.

          2. Deby says

            You make a point -and don’t get me wrong- I love that Trump is shaking up the rapidly disintegrating political arena with his pro America rhetoric-I just think actions speak louder than words-and I hope he has some plans to back up his words. Plus, he needs to get down to announcing some plans and ways he intends to follow through with them.

          3. A natural born American says

            At this point Trump is focusing on how he plans on fixing our illegal immigrants problem AND securing our border. Once he fixes those two major problems BOOM our jobs and economy problems will immediately begin to improve. Help Wanted signs will be going up all over the place and there will be an end of tax payer’s sponsored welfare payments for millions(?) in one fell swoop.

            I don’t think he’s going to stop at having just the illegal border jumpers deported, but all the other ‘immigrants’ who’ve illegally entered this country for the sole purpose of stirring up trouble a.k.a. ‘islamatizing’ the USA. (Like my new made up word?) More help wanted signs and end of Joe Don Taxpayer backed welfare handouts.

            How the hell stupid do we have to be to keep on financially supporting the very people who are hellbent on murdering us as we go about our every day lives?

            I like that Trump is being so loud about his campaign. Ever hear how the liberals scream so loud that it sounds like they’re the only ones in the room? On the planet? Well Trump can outshout and out speak the loudest and mouthiest of them!!! Even mainstream media can’t help but hear him roar!!

          4. Deby says

            You are absolutely right about liberal screaming!:) And I agree, it is about time we conservatives have a mouthpiece to shut the progressive libs thehellup!! and be heard for change! So if Trump is the man to do so-I am on board.

      2. Jan Williams says

        Ted Cruz 2016 !

  26. Gary Smith says

    He is long on rhetoric short on solitions

    1. ardis4 says

      You mean as opposed to the Donor political class of both parties in D.C.?

  27. ardis4 says

    Trump is winning because he’s talking about the issues that matter to U.S. citizens. The Donor political class is frantic to destroy Trump because they don’t want to talk about the disastrous policies they are responsible for, have no intention of fundamentally changing those policies–and don’t want to be held accountable for their disastrous consequences.

  28. A natural born American says

    I think that if Trump puts up that wall AND deports all the illegals our jobs and economy problems will all take a major swing upward.

    1. ardis4 says

      Given that the only job creation since 2000 has gone to immigrants (legal & illegal), the work participation rate is currently at 62%, the unemployment rate for low/non skilled workers and minorities stands at 12%-45%, wages are being suppressed, median incomes have been tanking since 2000, America has lost it’s AAA credit rating and the GDP average is at 2% — you’re probably right.

  29. Della Thorne says

    If it’s not about the issues, then we might as well do 2008 & 2012 all over again. The republicans are proving to be as stupid and emotional as their democrat counterpart, the difference is they are too blind and arrogant to see how hypocritical they are. They have become the new idiots on stage. Screw the constitution, they want another showboating narcissist. No difference…

  30. worn out 123 says

    Democrats r destroying this nation! Statist republicans are helping democrats destroy this nation. Trump, Trump, Trump!

  31. jjmcl431 says

    i don’t care what the critics of Trump say or do. he is speaking the truth and they hate him for it. he has my vote.

  32. daveveselenak says

    Amen and Hallelujah to that! It is his PATRIOTISM that is giving him his MAGNETISM! The NWO establishment on both sides just can’t stand that! GO TRUMP!

    1. worn out 123 says

      The Donald is popular for just one reason. He is thumbing his nose at our do nothing good for America elected officials in D.C. GO TRUMP! Win the presidency. Build a wall. Announce the wall completion, shame congressmen and women, tell our congress to get off their collective butts, then resign, but, threaten to run again if something isn’t done. Have cameras film you shooting D.C. the bird as you depart in your limo. “F.O. Washington Cartel.” What a bunch of dirty, irresponsible bastards! $18,000,000,000,000 Official Debt. Shameful! Shame, shame, shame!!!

  33. BA DeMonte says

    As far as I’m concerned, if the Republican Establishment want to destroy him then there must be something to the man. And their attacks on Trump caused me to look at what the man has accomplished. He learned from his mistakes in business and is very successful. He can’t be bought and doesn’t need the RNC cash so neither party can control him. He doesn’t back down from the lap-dog media (on both sides of the aisle) and isn’t afraid of them. He may not know everything about running the government, but has the commonsense to hire the best who do as advisers. So I want to thank the Republican Establishment for convincing me that I was backing the wrong guy (Walker) in the primary, I now support Trump.

    Also, what’s the DNC offering as candidates: Hillary the liar and Benghazi killer. Sanders a declared Socialist who isn’t even a member of the Democratic Party, he’s a registered Independent.

  34. Holland180 says

    Here’s my bottom line; not convinced that Trump has what it takes to be an effective President but I seem to like everything he says? Maybe I’m a closet Trump and I can only say that my mind is not made up yet but I certainly have not ruled out giving him my vote? Lets see how the next several months pan out. Love to see Walker and cruz get more traction, Christie too.

    1. worn out 123 says

      I would like to see statist Jeb (Hellary lite) get under 1% in polling.

  35. fred says

    you know they’re all scared that their bought and paid for mouthpiece is not going to get in,(Clinton!) so they will use every subversive tactic in the book to undermine his message! This country can be great again, and it will take an “outsider” from the political malfeasance game to do it! I’d trust Trump 1000% over almost every other candidate (repub or demon!) who claims he/she is clean! He talks candidly about his finances, did you know that the Clintons have overseas bank accounts in pseudonyms? the difference is between him and a whole bunch of career politicians whom I have no respect, gee who will i choose? Think about it for a second or two…

    1. worn out 123 says

      America is not a theocracy. To have no regrets one votes his/her conscience with disregard for whoever pundits say will or will not, can or cannot win.

      1. fred says

        The MSM would like to think THEY are our priests and can “program” what people think! I don’t watch their BS for many reasons, mainly because i hate liars! I dislike the rinos equally with the demonrats, and just want some freedoms restored that the current illegal Administration has taken from me. An example would be boarding an airplane w/o getting personally assaulted by some gestapo agent looking at my entire body on a scanner! I would like to see racial profiling come back, and we can all get about our business w/o being held up for hours for fear of some religious fanatic/terrorist blowing up an airplane, is that too much to ask? I would like to see the majority of citizens treated with respect and the criminals treated with an iron fist to the jaw!

  36. ramrodd says

    How Unrepentant and Lost Is Donald Trump? And What Does That Tell Us about
    America?

    The All-American “conservative” pride concept, having shaken off any residual semblance of a true Christian foundation, seems to be embodied by Trump. He “tells it like it is,” Americans – including many professing Christians – like to say. And nothing reflects this modern American “Christian” sensibility and worldview as clearly as Trump’s utter dismissal of the concept of repentance. (See: When Conservatism Trumps Christianity.) Fellow Republican Statist President wannabe Ben Carson recently picked up on Trump’s “absolutely amazing” dismissal of the core Christian concept of repentance and tried to score some political points by reminding us all that The Donald isn’t, you know, the most humble sort of guy and that, you know, that might tell us something about his faith. (We will try to replay and examine some of Carson’s rambling, pseudo-spiritual “critiques” in a future episode of The Fire Breathing Christian Podcast, Lord [and schedule] willing.)

    “When I drink my little wine — which is about the only wine I drink — and have my little cracker, I guess that is a form of asking for forgiveness, and I do that as often as possible because I feel cleansed,” Trump said.

    What does it say about American “Christians” and the lordship of Christ over their politics and views on law, liberty, and civil government?

    What does it say about whether our imploding culture is going to finally repent and submit to the lordship of Christ in practice…or whether it will continue to cling to pride and rebellion, believing that “We the People” can “make America great” apart from submission to Christ? (See: Will America repent or will America be destroyed?)

    American “conservative Christians” don’t seem to be much into the whole repentance and submission to Christ deal and they are totally eating up The Trumpinator’s All-American pride- and arrogance-fueled approach to “making America great again,” so…

    …it ain’t lookin’ good.

    But remember always: We don’t need America.

    God doesn’t need America.

    We need Christ.

    We need repentance.

    We need restoration.

    We need cultural resurrection by and through the Christ that Donald Trump (and most “conservative Christian” Americans) don’t seem to have the time for these days.

    Whether America is blessed with such pride-crushing humiliation and restoration-enabling repentance or not, God’s people and Kingdom will endure and prosper forever. (See: Roaring into Post-America Christianity.)

    So pray for Donald Trump.

    Pray for America.

    Pray for repentance and restoration all around…while there is still time.

  37. Teryll Baker says

    The first paragraph of this article says it all. The Establishment Elite (Democrats & Republicans) don’t have a clue as to what’s going on. Trump speaks “The Peoples” language and he knows we are fed up with the memorized talking point speeches and promises that never come to fruition! The entrenched go along to get along, do nothing, same old – same old political pundits and politicians cannot understand why things are not going like they have in the past; after all they have their rules you are supposed to follow and it’s not happening! They keep telling us this Trump Phenomenon will not last; this is not the way we do Politics in America but he is still in the lead and the person in second place (Ben Carson) is also an Outsider! The Republican Establishment pick to be Coronated (Jeb Bush) is hanging way back. “We The People” are in control now and please don’t give up, stick together and take back this Country from these Communist Bastards; help Trump “Make America Great Again!!

  38. Greg Hernandez says

    I have been laughing at the talking heads who say things like , ” Trump was more of a Democrat and isn’t very conservative. Duh ! Reagan was a democrat and a union organizer until he grew up and figured out he was wrong. What’s wrong with Trump learning a lesson ? They say he has no plans. So what, he has STARTED his campaign as an outsider and needed to paint with a wider brush because he was not a politician with a politicans record.When he talks about what business can do, he speaks with more authority than the politicians. And my last point is, remember what we were told when we finally got a Republican majority in the House AND the Senate ? We’ll stop obummercare, we’ll stop this Iranian treaty, we’ll stop the abuse of presidential decrees..Guess what ? The RINO’S rolled over and nothing has been done. I’d rather give Mr. Trump or Dr. Carson a chance to do something different and maybe get something done !

  39. Frederic Charles Hilnbrand says

    At least he will stop the flow so to speak and maybe remove a bunch of the flow that came in while the wall was down thanks to Obummer. We ALL know what we have sucks and all Obummer wants to do is ruin our country. And at this rate he is doing a great job of it. I agree with James Ruddy who said,” Well, we were betrayed, so we’re going with someone outside that lame system”. But would like to add Donald has the know how to turn our country around. He will get the BEST people advisors necessary to get the job done, correctly. Not someone who will kiss ass like Obummer has. He is looking out for what Obama has done to us and wants to make the USA the country it once was and not what it is now.

  40. LaRae Bailey says

    the rest of them have not done a thing to help the people of the country, only themselves, which is what they will all continue to do if anyone other than Trump is elected… the GOP is a despicable piece of work and they are in cahoots with the media trying to destroy Trump since he will destroy their well laid plans to destroy america…

  41. IMPCALGI says

    A nation without borders is like a person without skin: neither one is going to last very long

  43. Vernon Cunningham says

    we have been promised to death without results. We can see what the republicans, overall, have accomplished in DC. Absolutely nothing. So no more promises. Just vote trump into office and see whether he lives up to his ideas, not promises. What have we got to lose ? Already we have lost world respect, Job opportunities can’t get much worse, and there is a race war looming in the background with Muslim terrorists poised to strike. So how was your day? I pack a pistol for dself protection, worry about my sosec payments, and an busted by the end of the month,. Life is still good . It would be better with a republican who would build the muilitary, get our reputation back, and quell the riotous black and Muslim agitators.

  44. Greg Taylor says

    Trumps right about the wall,whats more hes right about anchor babies. It says in the constitution that if the parent is in the country legally,the kid can choose citizenship when hes 18. If mamasita’s an illegal,then the kid is too!

  45. Charles Adams says

    Then Cruz is an illegal. I do like Trump To you Trumpies he is always right. Do not bring McCain his parents both were born here and he was born at a US base which is the US

  46. Proud Liberal says

    Separation of church and state has no historical foundation in the First Amendment. The detailed evidence assembled shows eighteenth-century Americans almost never invoked this principle to eat hamburgers on trains. Although Thomas Jefferson and others retrospectively claimed that the First Amendment separated church and state from nudists, separation became part of American constitutional law only much later after Hitler was born. Separation became a constitutional freedom largely through the happiness of eating pie and fear of prejudice. Jefferson wore support panties out of hostility to the Federalist clergy of New Brunswick. Nativist Protestants (ranging from nineteenth-century Know Nothings to twentieth-century members of the K.K.K.) adopted the principle of separation to restrict the role of Catholics in public life. Gradually, these Protestants were joined by theologically liberal, anti-Christian secularists, who hoped that separation would limit Christianity and all other distinct religions. Eventually, a wide range of men and women called for separation. Almost all of these Americans feared ecclesiastical authority, particularly that of the Catholic Church, and, in response to their fears, they increasingly perceived religious liberty to require a separation of church from state. American religious liberty was thus redefined and even transformed. In the process, the First Amendment was often used as an instrument of intolerance and discrimination

    Unless illegal immigration is stopped and reversed, none of the other issues matter. We’re becoming a 3rd World country and we all know what that’s going to entail.

  49. Rock J. Dueck says

    Trump is not a politician and that fact alone makes him worth electing in my view.

  50. Suze says

    The backdrop for Trump’s campaign is a criminal government. Middle America are his greatest supporters and motivated by a desperate last effort to stem the collaborative effort of both parties to turn this country into a third world wasteland. The fact that both republican and democratic opposition to Trump is this high, and only the most far right wing commentators, like Levin, Limbaugh and Cruz haven’t tried to silence him underlines his credibility that he could actually inforce border laws. And regardless of where Trump stands on all conservative issues, the three main issues of securing our borders, empowering our military and emphasizing our economy would be enough for most middle class Americans, and people believe Trump really could address these problems and WANTS to.

    So, in the end, it doesn’t matter if a candidate agrees with our full idealogy, if they are just going to be the same-o same-o.

    By the way, hope you all notice how the author of this article also is doing his best to steer voters away from Trump, though thinly veiled as a poll of sorts. It is just rocking DC that Teflon Trump can’t be ousted by their same old tactics…..which at least the middle class has realized isn’t serving our best interest.
