    Heisen- I made a similar argument to friends of mine in 2012 who did not want to vote for Romney because he was a Mormon.

    Cruz and all the never Trump people need to realize that their votes are not theirs to withhold. Your vote belongs to the GOP. The GOP has done so much for Conservatism over the last eight years that we all owe it to them to support their nominee, regardless of how Liberal or immoral he is.

    There are still Branch Davidians out there insisting Koresh was the Messiah, so the behavior of Trumpsters should not surprise you. When a cultist cults, they cult for life.

    What delusion? Donald Trump is a Liberal Democrat pretending to be a Republican. That is beyond dispute.

  • [25] July 22, 2016 at 6:33pm

    Refusing to blindly pledge allegiance to the Republican nominee does not make a person a sore loser. It means that the person is not going to cast aside their principles merely for the sake of party unity. Donald Trump is the most Liberal nominee in party history, and no Conservative should be criticized for refusing to bow at the feet of a Liberal Democrat with an (R) by his name.

    The voting records disprove your false statement.

    The Democratic party has consistently believed for 250 years that blacks are inferior to whites. From Jim Crow laws to the modern day affirmative action polices, the Democratic party has always pushed the narrative that blacks are incapable of competing on an equal footing with white people. That is why the Democrats pushed eugenics and the growth of the KKK.

    I assumed that the reason he picked Pence was because he knows Pence will be competent enough to do the job that Trump intends to take credit for. This Kasich story just confirms it.

    Trump is not smart enough to know what problems plague the country, or curious enough to find out what they are. He picked a VP to be his CEO.

    Letmegoogle- The false narrative in the BLM movement is the dishonest belief that police are out MURDERING black people without consequence. In the extremely rare occasion that a police officer murders a suspect, they are immediately dealt with by their chain of command. “Hands up don’t shoot” never happened. All of these high profile incidents of “police getting away with murdering black people” have been proven false. That makes the underlying premise of the BLM false.

    On Islam, a quick glance through the Qaran, Sunnah and Hadiths will show you that Islam is a religion that has always been spread by the sword. It is not a religion of peace and never has been. A minimum of 10% (as high as 90% in some countries and 25% in the USA according to a poll from 2004) of Muslims in public opinion polls declare their support for violence in the name of Islam.

    He is not inconsistent with the polices he supports. He consistently attacks rivals from the left and voices support for leftist policies. His stated beliefs ARE inconsistent with Conservative or traditional Republican values.

    That is why it is important for any Conservative talking head to have the facts. As with most aspects of the Conservative ideology, the policies are supported by history.

    Here is the link to the website where you can find the police numbers. Somebody else posted it here a few days ago.

    I will readily acknowledge that many self-professed Conservatives have no core principles, as evidenced by their support of Trump. People without principles or facts on their side are forced to make emotional, rather than logical and factual arguments.

    That does not change the fact that THE PRESIDENT has shown a knack for being on the wrong side of these issues time and again. From Skip Gates to the BLM movement he starts his statement by saying “I do not have all the facts” and then proceeds to launch criticisms from a racialist perspective. It is clear where his sympathies are, and they are not on the side of “blind justice”.

    Eastinfection- They both support socialized medicine. They both support higher taxes on the rich. They both support “making Wall St pay”. They both support granting legal status to all non-criminal illegal aliens.

    I know you will say “read his website, it doesn’t say any of that stuff”. But Trump himself has not read the policies posted on his website, so why should I. I am going based on the statements he has made on the campaign trail, which are more likely to reflect his true positions.

  • [16] July 11, 2016 at 9:23pm

    Can you really rule that out even if Trump is elected? Trump is more ideologically aligned with Obama than he is with any traditional Republican.

    How is he wrong? Barack Obama is clearly sympathetic to the false narrative that is the basis of the BLM movement. He is also sympathetic to the false narrative that Islam is “inherently a religion of peace”. On issue after issue Barack Obama ignores the facts, and instead sides with the emotional arguments that are not based in reality.

    Of the 571 people killed during a confrontation with police this year, 138 were black and 281 were white. How about young black males? Of those 138 killed this year that were black, 92 were under the age of 34. Compare that to the 95 white males killed this year who were over the age of 45. That means there were more old white men killed by police than there were young black men.

    Any person toting a rifle around in that situation is being intentionally provocative, and should not be surprised at the consequences for doing so.

    On top of that, any person who openly carries a firearm does more damage to the Second Amendment than any gun grabber could ever do. There is almost no circumstance where it is necessary to openly carry your firearm. All you accomplish is that you cause alarm among the fence sitting public who are indifferent to gun ownership, but are inclined to become nervous at the sight of a gun.

    Out of sight, out of mind is the best approach to gun ownership, particularly when the SCOTUS cannot be counted on to protect the right to keep and bear arms. Just because you have a right, does not mean you need to flaunt it.

    If you voted for Trump in the primary, you are the one who ensured a Hillary victory.

  • [40] June 27, 2016 at 1:59pm

    There was no falsified evidence. The “evidence” that Joe Wilson brought back is widely considered to have bolstered the case of the “16 words”. You are a partisan ideologue that is a mile wide on talking points and cannot even scratch the surface of the facts.

    For the record, the Plame name was inadvertently confirmed by Richard Armitage, who is currently a Hillary supporter. There is ZERO evidence that W had anything to do with it.

  • [81] June 27, 2016 at 1:16pm

    This is what a president looks like who is not bitter and vindictive towards any person who disagrees with or criticizes them. Obama, Hillary and Trump could learn a few things from W.

    Grandpa- They do not realize that trade is a two way street. Many of those Japanese cars you see are made here in America, usually in right-to-work states. That is “in-sourcing”, and American workers benefit from the mutually beneficial arrangement. I saw a statistic that 20% of all American manufacturing jobs are in-sourced..
