If Trump sticks to the Message and does not indulge in personal attacks (Fiorina, Kelly), he has a winning hand.

As a Ted Cruz supporter, I agree 100%. The more "they" [the establishment] go after him the higher he climbs.

Trump is a boor and buffoon. Hitching your wagon to his star is most unwise.

Fatman may be a closet LIEberal.
Or he can't seem to break loose from his programming.

Whatevah....

It's more important to destroy the GOP Establishment than who wins election for President. If you leave Boehner & McConnell in power no Prez will implement anything, unless he's a Democrat.

Smashing the GOPe isn't an agenda item to be addressed when we have time, it's more important than any other agenda item. It's the act that determines or prevents all other acts. I think the biggest divide in the Republican Party is what to do about the GOPe. The policy nerds think we just need to get the platform EXACTLY right and everyone will agree with us and we'll usher in The Utpoia we've been waiting for. These and others oppose Trump because he's empty on policy, except immigration.

I am strongly supporting Trump, no matter what he does, until the day I vote. I want to use Trump like a full-back crashing into the frontline and attracting all attention from the Establishment traitors to leave my first choice alone as long as possible, Ted Cruz. If you want the GOPe to listen to you now is the time you have to make them listen. They will not listen to you after the election. Convince the GOP you are HAPPY to burn EVERYTHING to the ground if they won't listen to you (even if you don't feel this way".

Accept no compromise or bargains. The GOP and their toadies ALWAYS say they've heard what you want and this time they will deliver. That's always a lie. Support Trump, no matter what, and accept only resignation from the traitors. God himself would be thwarted at every turn if you leave B&M in control of their con game.

No matter who you want to win the nomination, appear like a Trump supporter until you get in the voting booth. If there is the faintest hint the GOPe can avoid changing they will.

Dr. Ben Carson is also a non-political outsider. He is getting my support.

Trump issued a position paper yesterday on the 2nd amendment that could have been written by its most ardent supporter. You can see it on his web page.

Posted by John Hinds at September 19, 2015 6:24 AM

@ snakepit
CARSON?!? Shirley, you troll.
His positions SUCK on SECOND AMENDMENT
and CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGALS.

@ Scott M
Agreed. The way I look at it (living in Florida), I have through February and the first half of March to see how the Primaries develop.

I ASSUME Trump will be running away with it by then, in which case, I intend to join the "DEATH TO THE GOPe" crowd and vote for Trump.
I really would have liked if Cruz were more assertive, but he isn't...and his percentages show it.
IF on the outside chance that it's a dead heat by the time it's my turn to vote, I might go with Cruz...might.

The GOPe has its manipulations front and center this time around. Anyone who hasn't yet NEEDS TO GO TO THE SITE
"The Conservative Treehouse" and see what evil they have concocted. Death to the Uni-Party!

For the first time in history we have an election where the delusional and hysterical barking moonbats are on the Right, not the Left. No thanks, Trump people, you have no idea what you are getting yourselves and the American people into. Whatever you think can be created out of this, it is not the Founders' dream, it is their worst nightmare.

Posted by Otis at September 19, 2015 12:21 PM

"No thanks, Trump people, you have no idea what you are getting yourselves and the American people into."

Okay.

Lets see how krazy this kat is, Otis:

Immigration Reform
-There must be a wall across the southern border.
---Make Mexico Pay For The Wall
- Laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced.
---Triple the number of ICE officers.
---Mandatory return of all criminal aliens.
---Detention—not catch-and-release.
---Defund sanctuary cities.
---Enhanced penalties for overstaying a visa.
---Cooperate with local gang task forces.
---End welfare abuse.
-Any immigration plan must improve jobs, wages and security for all Americans.
---Nationwide e-verify. (Protect jobs for unemployed Americans).
---Increase prevailing wage for H-1Bs.
---Requirement to hire American workers first.
---Jobs program for inner city youth.
---Refugee program for American children.
-End birthright citizenship.
-Immigration moderation.

Hmmm... looks pretty sane to me.

Golly... why wasn't this thought of before?! ;)

He also has a 2nd Amendement Platform. Being that IMMIGRATION REFORM (asked for by us people for years and years and years...) has set the country on fire, I'll just leave it at that for now.

The Campaign trail is long and Trump has plenty of time to add to his platforms, too. So far, he's doing great (In my humble opinion...)

Suckers. You are suckers, and belong in one of those failing casinos of his, where the marks don't realize they are the marks, and the house still captures the pot. Have fun turning America into Argentina.

Posted by Otis at September 19, 2015 4:43 PM

"Suckers. You are suckers,...where the marks don't realize they are the marks"

Go ahead, Otis... vote the usual suspects in again.

Promise to lower taxes?
Stop corruption?
Improve education?
Hug babies?
Defend Liberty?

Yea, yea... I know... we Rebels are the Marks... :)

No one wins the American presidency without building a coalition. Romney drove the Tea Party folks into the wilderness, attacked the other Republican candidates, and gave Obama a pass. He lost. Trump is attacking the other candidates with childish name calling and alienating potential allies. If he makes enemies of 30% of the Republican party he will lose against a Democrat party that votes lockstep. However, I'd pay money to see him call Hillary ugly. Given his closeness to the Clinton mafia it would be an event to savor.

Is there anybody reading this stuff that still believes if only we had:
•Republicans
•Democrats
•Tea Party
•Libertarians
•Penguins for a Gun-free Antarctica
•Sarah Palin
•Donald Trump
•all of the above
•none of the above
that all our troubles would go away?

Political conflicts are merely surface manifestations.
If conflicts arise you may be sure that certain powers intend to keep the conflicts under operation since they hope to profit from the situation.
To concern yourself with surface political conflicts is to make the mistake of the bull in the ring, you are charging the cloth.
That is what politics is for, to teach you the cloth.
Just as the bullfighter teaches the bull, teaches him to follow, obey the cloth.

Chas for prez.
No wait, if that happened he would turn into one of .....them. The profiteers he mentioned.

It ain't the people that are elected, as most of them seem decent BEFORE the election.

But AFTER the election they are indoctrinated into the corrupt system and their brain magically transforms into the tyrant looming below the surface in all of us.

Yes, ALL of us have the potential to be tyrants as it is in our survival DNA. Most of us never become large scale tyrants as our natural instinct to do good, and others around us are a barrier to tyrannical behavior.

It's only when the path is paved with good intentions by the ignorant and deranged that some of us are led to the alter of tyrants and once pandora is released it is never contained again, to the dismay and grief of all.

Do not assist any of your fellow citizens on his potential goal to consume you.

Ahem, unaccustomed to public speaking as I am, let me say this:

If elected I will fire all Congresspeople;
I will do away with lobbying. Just give us the money and leave;
Our military will be tasked with securing our borders, not with yellow warning tape, but with force of arms;
Our military will set forth in the world conquering troublesome countries. The citizens will then be contained or killed;
Any resources such as oil are ours for the taking;
Within our country all lawbreakers will be punished and when the prisons get too crowded we'll send them to the troublesome countries previously mentioned;
Anything politically correct will be done away with. Feminists and queers and "People of color" whatever that means will be treated just like everyone else;
We've been living with civil rights and slaves set free for about fifty years now. If Black people can't make it on their own that's tough.
Same with queers and other losers. The strong will survive and the weak will be pushed aside.

I think you are on to something, Ghost.

Washington DC is the hub of highest density of Multi-millionaires in the United States of America. A friend of the family had been part of that lifestyle and he said the place had the air of a 24/7 party.

A 24/7 party.

These people no longer are connected with real people living ordinary lives anymore. Using George Bushes expression ... "this swamp needs to be drained".

Drained of the vast excess of money.

Drained of the vast excess of power.

Return to the people what is theirs - by Constitutional Right and by Natural Law.
