I just received this from DR, Peter Forrest and I have no idea who write this eye-opener for me. If anyone knows the author, please let me know so I can give credit. C Brewer
This may be the best and most honest political promotion statement you will ever read. It decidedly does not brush objections aside.
You Hate Hillary? READ it.
You Hate Trump? READ it.
You think there’s no choice? READ it. And, read it with your grown-up hat on.
We’ve all been dealt huge responsibility with this election. The first step toward accepting responsibility is accepting it, and the first step toward accepting it is recognizing it.
READ THIS. Read every single word. It’ll take you about three minutes.
Are you sickened and despondent with the current campaign and upcoming presidential election? I consider myself a conservative and do truly believe our country is at a political/economic/moral/ social crossroads. I need to let you know I could/would never vote for Hillary Clinton to lead this country.
To me, she represents everything that is wrong with our current political structure. On the flip side, I look and listen to Donald Trump and I cringe at every rude, insulting comment he makes.
If you find yourself in a similar state of mind, please read the following article:
A Message for Christians About Donald Trump
Here’s a famous joke about God and how he talks to us.
“A deeply faithful Christian man is stuck on roof at home with massive flooding up to the 2nd floor. Rowboat comes. He says “No, I’m waiting for God. I prayed and I know he’s coming.” 2nd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.” 3rd Rowboat. “No, I’m waiting for God.”
Water rises. The man drowns. Now he’s meeting God in heaven. The religious man says, “Where were you God? I prayed. I was faithful. I asked you to save me. Why would you abandon me?”
God says, “Hey, I sent you 3 rowboats.”
Did you ever consider Trump is our rowboat?
Maybe God is trying to tell us something important–that now is not the time for a “nice Christian guy” or a “gentleman” or a typical Republican powder puff. Maybe now is the time for a natural born killer, a ruthless fighter, a warrior. Because right about now we need a miracle, or America is finished. Maybe the rules of gentlemen don’t apply here. Maybe a gentleman and “all-around nice Christian” would lead us to slaughter.
Maybe God is knocking on your door loudly, but you’re not listening. Maybe God understands we need a “war leader” at this moment in time. Maybe God understands if we don’t win this election, America is dead. It’s over. The greatest nation in world history will be gone. Finished. Kaput. Adios.
And with one last breath, maybe what we need to save us at the last second, is someone different. Someone you haven’t ever experienced before– because you weren’t raised in rough and tumble New York where nothing good gets accomplished unless you’re combative, aggressive, outrageous, on offense at all times, and maybe just a tad arrogant too.
Someone with a personality you’ve never seen on stage at your church. Maybe, just maybe, being a nice gentlemanly Christian would not beat Hillary and her billion dollars, and her best friends in the media who will unleash the dogs of hell upon the GOP nominee.
I guess you think God is only nice and gentlemanly. Really? Then you’ve missed the whole point of the Bible. When necessary, God is pretty tough. When necessary, God strikes with pain, death and destruction. When necessary, God inflicts vengeance.
Maybe you think God couldn’t possibly be associated with someone like Trump. Trump is too vicious, rude and crude.
When we won WWII, was God “nice?” Were we gentlemanly when defeating Hitler? Were we gentlemanly when firebombing Germany? Were we gentlemanly when dropping atomic bombs on Japan? Is God ever “nice” on the battlefield? Or does he send us vicious SOB’s like General George S. Patton so the good guys can defeat evil?
It’s pretty clear to me God sends unique people to be “war leaders.” That’s a different role than a pastor or church leader. God understands that.
And maybe it’s time to re-define “nice.” Maybe Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan aren’t nice at all–because they led us to defeat. And losing again would mean the end of America. And God can’t allow that. Maybe Romney and Ryan mean well, but the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Or maybe they’re just jealous they had their chance and blew it. Maybe they’d rather help elect Hillary than allow a Trump victory that would make them look weak, feckless and incompetent.
“Even the youths shall faint and be weary, And the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.” (Isiah 40:30-31)
God is about miracles. We don’t need a “nice guy” or a “gentleman” right now. It’s the 4th quarter and we’re losing 14-0. We need a miracle.
So let me repeat my message to Christians: “YOU’RE MISSING THE BOAT.”
I believe Trump is our miracle. I believe Trump is our rowboat. Except he’s more like a battleship!
No one is saying Trump is perfect. No one is saying Trump is a perfect conservative. But he is a patriot. He is a warrior. He is a capitalist. He is the right man, at the right time. Yes, he’s a bit rude and crude and offensive. But that may make him the perfect warrior to save America, American exceptionalism, capitalism and Judeo-Christian values. The choice should be easy for Christians. It’s Trump…or it’s the end of the American dream.

News that the majority of the “people” in the United Kingdom have spoken that they have had enough of the European Union “Elites” mandates. This was totally unexpected by the current Government, world leaders, bookmakers and especially our President Obama. This vote has rocked the entire world and it is only the beginning of a new phase of dissatisfaction with the “Elites” worldwide. The people are sick and tired of actions that in some cases are illegal, so that politicians can dilute people’s heritage by allowing an immigration policy that is slowly wrecking their lives.
The common folks can see that they are losing their identity, faith, savings and future to satisfy minorities that even a fool can see have diluted their freedoms. The people appear willing to possibly lose some of their savings and dis-unite from a group of countries that have so many different races, faiths, history and plans for more dilution. They are screaming that they desire to preserve their country for their children and grand children’s future. Even though the vote shows that the British people and the Scottish people may eventually separate, freedoms will prevail for both.
Fellow Americans, we are faced with an identical dilemma in what is now a totally “Dis-United States of America. America was created by a diverse group of immigrants who were tired of the rigid control of their faiths, excess taxation, future and freedoms. They rebelled and won a way to create the most successful Republic form of government that has ever existed.
Now we are watching the “Elites” of Washington D.C. band together to prevent Donald Trump and the people from stopping the same destruction of our freedoms. Watching the leaderless people like Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, George Will, Lindsay Graham, George and Jeb Bush and many more so-called “Conservatives” try everything possible to stop Trump from being elected is sad. This covert movement to deny American people their rights to preserve our heritage is unprecedented in recent American history. Watching how the “Elites control every media outlet from supporting the people is one of the worst manipulations of free speech I have seen in my nearly 86 years on this earth.
We have watched all three, Executive, Congressional and Judiciary branches of our government, allow and even speed up the new immigrant invasion that allows all Muslims the freedom to demonstrate their faith in public and at the same time prohibit other faiths from doing the same thing.
We allow the Mexican immigrants to disgrace our flag and demand that we allow them to ignore English as our choice of languages. We issue drivers licenses to illegal immigrants who can’t even read our traffic signs. In some states we openly allow illegals, convicted prisoners and the dead to repeatedly vote in federal elections while the Justice Department and our Supreme Court actually support this lawlessness. Our own President Obama has openly created a race war just short of mass insurrections in our cities and even our Congressional leaders have no concern.
Watching the covert movement by both Democrats and Republicans to find a way to prevent Trump from being elected President is sickening. Watching the media overtly and covertly supporting this manipulation to get Hillary elected makes me sick. If the majority of Americans buy this line of propaganda Americans will never have another chance to return the power of governing our country to the people. I pray that enough Americans have the courage to at least allow Trump a chance to fire enough “Elites” to allow the people to have the power to control our future.
The British people have shown us a path. I hope we have the courage to take control of our destiny as they have. Please read the rest of this article to get acquainted with Donald Trump, a true American patriot. C Brewer

Trump family history – concise
Donald Trump’s grandparents emigrated to the U.S. from Alsace (Kallstadt, Germany) which throughout history has been alternately French and German. The Trumps are German, originally speaking the same German dialect as the Amish of Lancaster County, Pa.
His maternal grandparents lived in Scotland.
Freiderich (Drumph) Trump made a small but respectable fortune in the late 19th Century in the mining boom towns of the American Northwest. He returned to Germany to marry his childhood neighbor, Elizabeth Chris.
The newly married Trumps resettled in the Borough of Queens NY.
Freidrich was establishing a Real Estate business in Queens when he died suddenly at age 49 (1918).
In 1920, at the age of 15, Fred Trump (Freiderich’s son and Donald’s father), started a business partnership with his widowed mother called Elizabeth Trump & Son. This business was built upon the real estate holdings that his father, Frederich, had amassed (worth about $500,000.00 in today’s dollars).
This is the original “seed money” of the current Trump Organization.
Elizabeth & Fred remained close business partners her entire life (she died in 1966).
In 1936 Fred Trump (age 31) married Mary Ann MacLeod (age 24) of Stoneaway Scotland.
During the depression, Fred Trump built and successfully operated a supermarket (a new concept at the time) which was sold to King Kullen Co. and operates this day.
Fred Trump made a lot of money building housing for the military during WWII.
Fred Trump was investigated by the Justice Department for making “excessive profits” from gov’t contracts.
Nearly all of the building of Elizabeth Trump & Son’s non gov’t building was residential property in Queens.
Fred Trump died in 1999 (age 94) – worth between $250 million and $300 million. His wife died a year later.

2009 – 2011 – Republican
2011 – 2012 – Independent.
2012 – Present – Republican.
Donald Trump was openly supportive of Mitt Romney’s candidacy.
Donald Trump does not seem to hold political party organizations in high regard.
For the most part, his political involvement has been for practical reasons.
Donald Trump does not appear to be held to political ideology.
Some of my takeaways:
Trump has an extraordinarily energetic central nervous system, much like Teddy Roosevelt but more targeted to industry and enterprise.
Trump’s presidency will be very energetic, transparent, and communicative.
Trump will be a very hard working President.
His interaction with his older brother (who everybody loved), tells me that he thinks that everybody is like him – or wants to be – or should be.
His relationship with his older brother was a hard lesson in tolerance for him.
Trump is the Babe Ruth of career achievements.
He is dumb like a fox. When you think he just said something stupid – he didn’t. It’s just that you were not his target audience.
Trump knows the people – the folk.
His son, Donald Jr. is right. Trump is a “Blue Collar Billionaire”.
More than anything, his TV show, The Apprentice, was his passion. He wants all Americans to have confidence (like he does) to venture.
Donald Trump is attracted to and marries smart, high achieving women.
The highest levels of a Trump Administration is certain to have many women; they will be bright and assertive
Donald Trump’s children are very important to him. And it shows.
What a contrast to prior professional politicians.
May be worth the risk to see how he performs as the POTUS. IMHO, he won’t make the mistakes of his predecessor, at least he won’t diminish the image of the US in the eyes of the world.
ANON …. I have no idea who compiled this factual family history or the personal observations and comments. I would like to give credits if someone will advise me of the author.
I always respected Mitt Romney for his patience, character, demeanor, stature and a supposed assumption he was intelligent. He may well be a genius at being a good Mormon but at politics he proved he was a total failure four years ago.
These past few days make me suspect he is totally losing his mind. If someone can reel him in he will be known in history as the individual that destroyed the Republican Party. If he can’t understand the damage he is rabidly racing to destroy the Grand Old Party (GOP), someone needs to shake him up. Uncontrolled he is making it a certainty we will see Hillary elected and finalize set the plan to make America a Socialists Democracy similar to those in Europe.
If Hillary ends up in prison, which is where she belongs, old Bernie will then be elected and we will see bankruptcy before Socialism. Bernie is a flower child from the 1960’s and drugs appear to have fried his brain a long time ago. As Vermont keeps electing him, the entire State must have smoked the same pipe. The only thing that saved Hillary from drugs then was she was stuck in Arkansas where everyone was kin to each other back then and could not afford a pipe or the weed.
Mr. Romney, the certain thing that will change the course of history is replacements for the Supreme “Political” Court. One is a replacement for Scalia which will happen early next year will set Socialism in motion to radically remove more freedoms first. When John Roberts, Clarence Thomas or Samuel Alito retire or die, as most do, the next Progressive/Liberal/Socialist replacement will result in elimination of our Freedom of Speech, Freedom to Bear Arms and Freedom of Religion that Obama did not finish. THE Court will also likely eliminate our right for Freedom to Assemble. Unless we have until another civil war in America to regain our lost freedoms America will become a Muslim controlled country by 2050 and Sharia Law will be imposed.
If I am right God save my family as I will be a forgotten old veteran who lived the American dream of success.
It is nearly unbearable for me to watch Mitt Romney on his hell-bent crusade to destroy the GOP. Even a madman like Obama could not believe that the gift of the White House for four more years would be that easy even though he probably hates Hillary as much as Cruz does.
Obama knows that if either Hillary or Bernie win they will be blamed for the certain financial meltdown we face. He has not endorsed either one and is waiting to see if Hillary is indicted before he has to commit. Should she be charged it will be easy to back Bernie who is dumber than a “dip-stick”. Obama know that total financial failure is more certain with Bernie than Hillary. What puzzles me is why he is blocking the Justice Department from charging Hillary with crimes so evident, a deaf, blind and mute illegal ten-year old knows she broke the law with the personal computer server. The entire leadership of the FBI should be charged with stupidity for believing any sane American could possibly believe her actions were legal or lawful.
I know I am right so God save my family as I will be a forgotten old dead veteran who lived the American dream. Hang on ladies and our welfare army before America self-implodes, ending over 200 plus years being the envy of the world. You can only blame yourselves. C Brewer 5-16-15
Op-Ed from O.R. Pimentel, March 6th, 2016.
My good friend Ron Jenkins, a guest writer infrequently posted on my Blog, shared his discern with what appears to be another paid “Hatchet Job”. Hopefully you read my similar, article on Mitt Romney’s diatribe on Donald Trump. It appears to me to be a contest between Republicans and Demoncrats regarding who hates Trump the most? In my opinion the GOP itself is or will be the winner. Individually and especially if Trump gets killed or disappears, it will be a wild race for which American journalist, power broker or politician to claim all of the credit for his killing or his Jimmy Hoffa like dis-appearance. C Brewer
Mr. O.R. Pimentel
As I read your opinion piece today, it struck me how little evidence you offered to back-up your assertions, that “the damage, Mr. Trump will inflict, across a broad range, would not be trifling!”
Apparently, you are content to parrot the words of a failed GOP presidential nominee, Mitt Romney. But, please tell me, how does your name calling convince a non-emotional or a non-ideologue that Mr. Trump is, as you claim, an “opportunistic provocateur”?
Your use of the “race card” so frequently, ultimately dilutes its value and impact. When Mr. Trump called for “the temporary suspension of foreign immigration by people from countries with a history of violent Jihad against the United States”, as the United States Code encourages and, as it has been employed by Democrat Presidents in the past (Roosevelt and Carter), for example; his words were mocked by those ignorant of the law. His reference to “illegal aliens” or “undocumented immigrants” are not “racist” terms.
How do you think they should be referred to: as “unofficial guests, “queue jumpers”, “uninvited visitors”?
When a statistically disproportional number of youngish males, from South of our border with Mexico, have been arrested and convicted of rape, robbery and murder, sent back to their home countries, returned, time and again, he wasn’t wrong in citing their crimes, as further proof, that our borders must be secured, before any serious talk on, so called, comprehensive Immigration legislation, is contemplated.
A significant portion of Conservative Republican and Independent voters are “mad as heck and they’re not going to take it anymore.” The TEA Party and staunch Conservatives who elected Senator Cruz and Rubio, see Mr. Trump as someone who will do what those elected to office in the Republican landslide in 2011 have failed to accomplish, in these last four years. And, maybe, because “the Donald” has not been a professional politician, his language and public pronouncements are not always “Politically correct!”
Of course, that may be part of his allure to millions of new and revitalized voters. If you must be so partisan, could you, at least try to provide evidence to back up and justify your passionate sentiments, to those of us who try to make logical and reasoned election decisions?
San Antonio, TX,
Thanks again Ron, C Brewer 3-6-16
VENOM? HATE? CHARACTER ASSINATION JEALOUSY? FEAR? LEADERLESS? AIMLESS? LOST?
Let me see how many descriptive words or phrases others would like to add to my list above to express what should be engraved on the GOP headstone. Each week another well- known Progressive, Republican-In-Name-Only (RINO), encourages the self-inflicted suicide march they are hell bent on completing before November. Today we watched Mitt Romney join the growing number of RINO’S hit the accelerator to speed up the carnage. This follows a growing list of other GOP candidates that have dropped like flies as “Trump marches on”. McConnell, Ryan, most GOP Congresspersons, the entire twisted news media and obviously Hillary and her band of Communists friends and her Airforce of “Broom Pilots”.
In his speech at the University of Utah, Romney called Trump a “phony” and a “fraud” and argued that his policies would lead to a recession. Look back four years when he ran against Obama, the biggest fraud, phony, liar and “leadership impersonator” in the history of the United States. He never accused him of anything and he has already ruined the retirement hopes for the middle class for the next 100 years.
Let me share some of the specific charges he made and some of my comments about his bravery he did not have four years ago that would have won him the Presidency. Folks if you call his actions then, anything but stupid, you must have been laying around with Sleeping Beauty waiting for Prince Charming’s kiss? Obviously when Obama kissed her most of us seniors lost a huge hunk of our life’s savings.
Romney Quotes/My comments
“In 1964, days before the presidential election which, incidentally, we lost, Ronald Reagan went on national television and challenged America saying that it was a “Time for Choosing.” He saw two paths for America, one that embraced conservative principles dedicated to lifting people out of poverty and helping create opportunity for all, and the other, an oppressive government that would lead America down a darker, less free path. I’m no Ronald Reagan and this is a different moment but I believe with all my heart and soul that we face another time for choosing, one that will have profound consequences for the Republican Party and more importantly, for the country”.
“If he had said this in 2012 and used Obamas lying and wrecking the economy, facts he would be running for re-election and the Broom Pilots would be Soccer Moms again.”
“Warren Buffett was 100% right when he said last week that “the babies being born in America today are the luckiest crop in history.”
“Where was Buffet in 2102? Asleep like Romney. There is no doubt their two families have no worries. Why did Buffet get Obama to kill the Keystone Pipeline, greed and Romney must have Hathaway investments? Folks, they are not hurting like you are”.
“That doesn’t mean we don’t have real problems and serious challenges. At home, poverty persists and wages are stagnant. The horrific massacres of Paris and San Bernardino, the nuclear ambitions of the Iranian mullahs, the aggressions of Putin, the growing assertiveness of China and the nuclear tests of North Korea confirm that we live in troubled and dangerous times”.
WOW! Not one factual thing listed to fix anything. Sounds like Rubio magic. Get ready for the Trump lawyers next.
“Let me put it plainly, if we Republicans choose Donald Trump as our nominee, the prospects for a safe and prosperous future are greatly diminished. First, the economy: If Donald Trump’s plans were ever implemented, the country would sink into a prolonged recession.”
“A few examples: His proposed 35% tariff-like penalties would instigate a trade war that would raise prices for consumers, kill export jobs, and lead entrepreneurs and businesses to flee America. His tax plan, in combination with his refusal to reform entitlements and to honestly address spending would balloon the deficit and the national debt. So even as Donald Trump has offered very few specific economic plans, what little he has said is enough to know that he would be very bad for American workers and for American families”.
“Let me put it plainly Mr. Romney, a safe prosperous future for you compared to the average American is like comparing beans and rice with porterhouse steaks and caviar. Like riding a bus compared with a private jet. There is not one person connected with our government at any level that has the foggiest idea what ordinary and especially senior citizens face every day they wake up. In my 85 years we have had a cycle that introduced “middle Class” and are now slowly eliminating it this very day. We now have “royalty like yourself and laws that everyone, especially the rich and powerful just ignore. I have written over 900 articles that can enlighten you but you would not lower yourself to read them. You live on a mountain of fantasy like our Congress.”
The President of the United States has long been the leader of the free world. The president and yes the nominees of the country’s great parties help define America to billions of people. All of them bear the responsibility of being an example for our children and grandchildren.
“Watch how he responds to my speech today. Will he talk about our policy differences or will he attack me with every imaginable low road insult? This may tell you what you need to know about his temperament, his stability, and his suitability to be president.”
“I can’t wait. You have brutally make assumptions, back stabbed Trump, accused him of stupidity, dishonesty and you have ignored what has destroyed the Republican Party at warp speed. Sir, we were both born in America, we put our pants on one leg at a time. We certainly had different lives you would not understand as silver spoons never found me in the 1930’s. I clawed my way up life’s ladder one rung at a time. I made my opportunities instead of inheriting them like you and Donald Trump. Mr. Romney, I find it shameful to watch you express your venom like you are Jesus and when you or Trump have no idea what an average American puts up with your bloated egos. Sadly we do not elect anyone anymore based on their value, we just vote against the ones who we dislike the most.
What you and the GOP does not understand is we have so many variables watching politicians carve each other up you will see Trump elected President as he is saying what the “People” want to hear. Politics has become a blood sport now as the recent death of Scalia will reveal someday. I have previously expressed that Trump will probably die of unexplained reasons, possibly before the elections.
You can read the rest if Romney’s diatribe but by now I am sick of his Paid Hit Job. I am ashamed that I voted for him even though he appeared to be better than Obummer.
C Brewer 3-3-16
The more I read the more I believe that Trump is the only hope Americans have to stop the wrecking of the Republic. He has faults, he is human, a braggart, is short-tempered just like most successful people I have ever read about. I have most of his traits myself. The trait that no one can deny is he loves America. He will stop the Liberal-Progressive tactics we have watched our President unleash to force America to self-destruct. Obama despises success, freedoms, States Rights and abets our foreign friends and foes equally to hate America and Americans. He actually wants us to hate each other and eventually cause anarchy in the streets.
I just read an article in the “GOPUSA Eagle” written Friday that you can read at their website or contact them at email@example.com. The title of the article is “Donald Trump’s Greatest Hits” What I want to share are a cross-section of the comments that have been posted after people read the article. The opening paragraph should reveal my feelings about the man, not the article. Anything you see in Italic script are my words
#1. Support a not so politically correct Donald Trump who has cajones and will tell it like it is, 🙂 who is NOT a lying, spineless, wimpy, corrupt self-serving political politician.
#2 As soon as he gets in the White House he can call it the “Trump Palace.” Go Donald. You have more support than you know.
#3 Hate to be the skunk at the garden party, but Donald Trump has higher “Unfavorable” numbers than Hillary Clinton and he LOSES to her by 12 pts. in General Election, according to Quinnipiac and other polls. So far, only 3 Republicans beat her, including my favorite, Gov. Scott Walker, who beats her by 9 pts. Others by less.
#4 The polls on The Donald are skewed. The media is having a hard time bringing Trump down, so manipulating polls are about the only thing they can do.
#5 Is it true Trump’s companies applied for over 1,000 visas for immigrant employees? This could be a problem.
#6 “Is it true Trump’s companies applied for over 1,000 visas for immigrant employees?” Huh? Do you not see the difference between applied for visas legally and the attempt of Tinkerbell Obama to grant amnesty to 11 million illegal immigrant?
#7 Newt got standing ovations when he dished it back to the press. Trump is getting standing ovations for the same thing. The press knows they’re hated and Rino’s know they’re hated and they don’t give a damned. It’s time the American public throws them out of the picture. They are the reason America is failing and the constitution is shredded.
#8 It is the fault of the American people who voted in, and in many cases continues to vote in the *** individuals that you speak of. Kind of like the old Pogo line, “We have met the enemy, and they are us!”
#9 Yes, they were voted in because they promised to deliver and up until now they were all we had to choose from. NOW we have Trump who may or may not ultimately deliver. But at least he is talking the talk that millions want to hear. Unlike Obama I believe Trump is honest. We shall see.
#10 The head of the RNC has to go, with the rest the RINOS in Congress. Reince Priebus is nothing but a politically correct hack, who has no clue on how a Presidential nominee should run a campaign. John McCain and Mitt Romney ran terrible campaigns. They might as well have been zombies in The Walking Dead. The Republicans need someone who will attack the liberal socialist media and attack the DemoRAT Party when the DemoRATS play the war on women card, the Al Sharpton race card and the rich are not paying their fair share card!
#11 (a comment on number 10) Waking zombies… Perfect description of those two. McCain deliberately threw that election. And McCain has the nerve to show his nasty face and open his stupid mouth. Obama’s administration has been such an outrage, it’s going to take an outrageous Trump to fix it.
#12 (a comment on number 10) McCain ran one of the poorest campaigns I can ever remember. He acted as if he was on tranquilizers. There was no life to him and left Sarah Palin mauled by the media sharks. I listened to Romney’s 47% speech again. He said absolutely nothing wrong but once attacked he didn’t have the strength or spirit to fight back. There was zero support from his party and he gave the same exact speech in every city/town in the last 48 hours to the election. It is becoming clearer we have a one party system and Trump demonstrates he’s not part of it. The GOP doesn’t deserve another dime or support unless they clean house and build a conservative base again. Stick a fork in it!
#13 I really am waiting to see the Trump – Hillary face off. I hope he leaves her in tears, I know he can take her old man in a street fight if he is stupid enough to try to defend her.
#14 surprisingly, this might be one of the FEW times i actually willfully tune into a Political debate. Just to see Trump crush all the others.
#15 Donald Trump is not my first pick…but if he can handle this first debate as well as he has handled the media…he may very well become my first pick. I, like many others, are tired of the milk toast all talk and no action Republicans who cower to the media and constantly somehow believe they will win them over. Trump is a realist and calls them out on their BS and little gamesmanship. They have done enough damage to this country with their pretending to be unbiased but slant everything so carefully as to make conservatives and tea party people look like uncaring racial bigots who ruin the environment, shoot everyone and constantly abuse poor people. Geez…enough damage has been done to this country. THANK YOU DONALD for standing up and saying what we all have been saying for a long time…but only can voice our frustrations on forums like this one.
#16 (a comment on #15) the republicans are wimps and you hit it right on the head when you said the republicans cower to the media and somehow believe they will win them over. That’s the classic definition of insanity, doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Trump is fresh and bold and pushes back. Go Trump Go!
#17 (Comment on #15 also) I, like many others, are tired of the milk toast all talk and no action Republicans who cower to the media and constantly somehow believe they will win them over….They have done enough damage to this country with their pretending to be unbiased but slant everything so carefully as to make conservatives and tea party people look like uncaring racial bigots who ruin the environment, shoot everyone and constantly abuse poor people…So, then why isn’t Trump your first pick? It sounds like you’ve got the elite Repubs pegged.
#18 Do you know how many years I’ve dreaded watching the news now? At least 7! Sometime I have to stay away from the news for a week or two because I’m so disgusted and ashamed of my country that I get depressed hearing it.
Now I sweep the stories every day hoping for another Trump smack down story. When he smacks the RINO’s I cheer all the more! Trump has injected life into a dying party. He has injected truth into a lying party. I think a Trump/Cruz ticket would be just about perfect. Then if we could get congressional term limits we might have a shot at getting America strong again and keeping America strong. Man, do I agree with this. CB
Go Trump Go!
#19 The media have crawled back into their holes after boosting Trumps popularity on national TV. I believe Donald has found a tune that many of the apathetic white folks are hearing. The white vote is huge and Trump is talking directly at them. White votes matter.
#20 All people here legally lose jobs because of illegals, but legal Hispanics lose more than whites, and blacks lose most of all. Young people lose because illegals take entry-level jobs, again its black young people who lose the most and have done the worst under Obama. All Americans would benefit from closing the border and from better policies all around.
There are 13 more pages of comments I would like to include but if you can’t see that people are fed up, you’re either blind, have a closed mind, dumb, inflexible, illiterate or an illegal alien. Holy smokes I just defined a DemoRat.
I have never in my 85 years seen a candidate for President that is being attacked by both political parties. Even Fox News has joined the liberal news media and every right-wing nut who can write his name by piling on “The Donald”. The first debate Thursday will be programmed by Fox to attempt to destroy Trump with old news stories. The media only publishes or broadcasts negatives like interviews with someone’s ex-wife in an attempt to smear those like Trump. Maybe that’s why I never chose to be a politician?
I hope you enjoyed my 847 articles as I am having some old age health issues that could impair my ability to continue. I certainly hope not but one never knows! C Brewer
