Smoky Mtns are great – if you can stomach Dollywood and gimiky tourist traps – stay in Gatlinburg and travel up the pass via hiking trails and such.

Agreed – for the majority – all should be transferred to being State Parks. Although there are a few that cross borders with Canada (and possibly Mexico as well).

Yes – and I’ve been meaning to do that for a while – thanks for the kick in the butt Blaze.
I’m going to go see Glacier National Park instead of any of the above, I’ve heard much better things about this park. https://www.nps.gov/glac/planyourvisit/index.htm
Glacier is amazing. It makes you want to drop out and live there. The one on this list that I haven't been to is Smoky. Look beautiful.

You make such a great thoughtful argument TSully – there are absolutely no words that I can say in response. However, what about the folks that are conservative that cannot support either candidate? We have on one hand a completely pathological liar and on the other… oh wait.
Don't forget the RoundUp! Sprinkle a little on the veggies and it's delicious!

Add Bill Whittle (Afterburner) and Chuck Woolery in the mix too. I believe it would be better for a Whittle/Rowe 2020 ticket.
But I’m still holding out hope for Cruz/Rowe 2020 ticket that will save the country.
and hatred is so much easier, just look at the Middle East. “They” have it better over there – they must be evil – let’s teach our children to hate.
It never hit me how much God loves us until I had my own children – and my understanding is just a glimpse of how much he loves us. Love is much more powerful, even though it doesn’t look like it these days.

You do realize there is absolutely no chance that IL will vote for Trump over Hillary – dont you? So – like I said – my vote doesn’t matter anyway. I have the luxury of realizing that the cities of Chicago and Joliet pretty much overrides all other counties in IL – however IL, as did 47 other states, went for Reagan back in ’80 and voted for Reagan and Bush1 in ’84, and ’88.

Agreed – thanks
I’m either voting for Gary Johnson, or write-in Ted Cruz – I cannot abide voting for a man that I loathe and a woman who is not fit for running the lemonade stand down the street let alone as the leader of the free world.

So – it behooves me to write-in ‘Ted Cruz’ on my ballot? It really doesn’t matter how I vote in Illinois – Hillary will win IL for sure.
Vote your conscience anyway. That way you win even if your candidate doesn't. The only way you have a prayer is to blackout Chicago.
In your case, yeah, I'd suggest Cruz - if nothing else, at the end of this people are going to look and see, "Oh hey, 10% of the voters wrote in Cruz. Maybe we should think about electing people who can get that group."
Though I'd also warn you to be prepared for four years of Trumpists that don't realize this whole thing is their fault blaming you for Hillary. It's not your fault by a long shot, but that won't stop them.
I've heard it said that it's better to loose gracefully than to have never tried at all. You keep your dignity and honor that way. Your vote is your own victory, so vote how you please.

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” –Frank Herbert, Dune
But that’s ok for them not to have any white people….it is only a problem and racist when white people (unless you are white Progressive democrats) don’t include black people.
That picture is so dark I had to take off my sunglasses.to see it.

Yep – I saw that episode of Boardwalk Empire – I think it was Nucky Thompson that had him shot…
Oh wait – we are talking reality today? Heaven Forbid – I cannot believe that…

FFT – a bit melodramatic eh? Although I totally agree that this pledge is ridiculous. Next thing will be a “tax” to contribute to the local #BLM chapter.

Yes – thank you Mike Rowe,
I am actually using that site now to put together a lesson-plan of sorts for my 10 yr old daughter to start learning the real history behind our Independence. She and I watched some history channel reenactments of the Southern battles, and she was quite intrigued. Glad I have some more material to interest her and educate both her and myself.

Um – Vlad,
When he had the opportunity to address the Brexit vote while he was in Scotland, he didn’t and honored his son in one of his successful ventures to increase the Trump estate. He did not “put his business aside” to actually possibly influence the US-Britain relations when he could easily have done that.
I believe that he may end up helping our nation, but I’m not sold, just as many others are not.

Isn’t that the truth. This is the crux – we seem to no longer be a nation of law, where no man is above the law.
Sad but true.
Blackened is the end…
