Even if they were, there minds are made up before the discussion even starts. They are slaves to their ideology. I never met a liberal with whom I could have any kind of a rational discussion.
NOTE cknapp. You cannot fix stupid! It is what it is with liberals!

Exactly what makes Trump a “nut”? He talks with passion about defeating Muslim Extremist Terrorists (the only time Barrack the Hussein speaks with passion is when he is p1ssing on Republicans), Trump talks with passion about winning, about taxing imports (even from American entities) to make trade fair again (compare prices of German electronics vs Japanese electronics in a German store and you get a quick lesson on economics and keeping jobs local).
The ideal would be no tariffs imposed on any country. If China imposes a tariff on goods we export to them and we impose a tariff on goods they export to us then a trade war would ensue. How about we deal with countries that are duty free? Free trade trumps, no pun intended, fair trade any day of the week.
Anyone who believes anything other than the the two sides of the establishment is a "nut". This makes you "nutty" if you believe in truth.
Somebody who doesn't understand how tariffs hurt all involved (producer, worker, consumer) is in no position to give economic lessons.
I think Ms Noonan defined the term well. This was the best the Republican party could do?
It's not his message it's his delivery... He has my vote but to the low information voter he does come across as a "nut"... Of course the low information crowd get the majority of their propaganda from those fools on The View...
With the election upon us all this negative BS is not helping. Just vote damnit and shut up about it. After 8 years of the racist bastard in office anything other than a democrat will do. If he pulls off one promise we are better for it. Nothing but a nation of whiners. If it was Cruz or Jeb we would be hearing the same crap.
If the rule of law were applied The Butcher of Benghazi would be in an orange jump suit instead of running for President. Stick that one in your pipe and smoke it Noonan. The Globalists are dropping crab cakes in their diapers....fun to watch.
“After 8 years of the racist bastard in office anything other than a democrat will do.”
The problem is that if you don’t vote third party, you are voting for a democrat.
Trump’s tariffs are bad – and not congruent with an open and free market place. It’s more Mussolini than it is Jefferson.
What’s worse though… I never thought I would see the day where a legitimate US candidate for Presidency would openly endorse Stalinesque USSR paper checks. I say this because in the second debate, when defending his nationwide stop and frisk program, he said they would be required to enforce his proposed “No Gun List”. Frankly, that’s the scariest thing I’ve ever heard any American politician ever say, The USSR ran paper checks to enforce their KGB lists. They would stop people, frisk them for their papers, identify them, and run their identity through their government issued monthly list of dissidents. If you were on that list, or if that list designated an area you shouldn’t now be in but were, off to camp with your family you would go.
Trump is espousing that same philosophy. The fact so many so called small government types have gotten behind this guy, well that’s simply sad – and dangerous.
Clinton is no better…
Face it, we let anger and vengeance guide us into Trump’s terrible cult of personality.
We are so screwed.
For anyone not working in manufacturing -
Respectfully – we (my industry) are being beaten down into a slave force.
It’s terrible. It’s not even a Union envy thing anymore. Small business machine shops and skilled workers are literally being drained to nothingness…
If you don’t work in industry you won’t understand. Tech and healthcare markets are still ok. Any government design and manufacturing located around DC is doing ok, but we dont make our own products here anymore at all hardly.
Trade laws matter. NAFTA was a TERRIBLE law for manufacturing. Absolutely horrid. Want proof? Go to local community shops and ask any guy – ask their BEST paid machine operater what he makes and then yourself if you’d like to do that for a living making that little.
I can tell you the answer is no. And I can say it with certitude because I just watch my father lose the fam business after 33 years. His best paid workers were around 23$/hr with fair benefits (but they had been on staff for two decades).
Shops can't afford to stay open anymore here
One more thing; my father is a good man. He’s always been a hard worker and commanding but fair boss. He's not rich (except on character). He never took more than maybe 85k annually as personal salary so he doesn't have a ton to show for after 33 years.
These last 15-20 years though were harder and harder on businesses like his. His was one of many in Michigan to fall over the last 2 decades because the local work given became harder and harder whilst the more lucrative stuff always went overseas.
Thank you for giving us a glimpse of the real world. I'm sure there're many more like you. Elections and Government actions and regulations have consequences, most have been bad for decades.
@cknapp. Yeah, well good question. To a lot of the media and the lib-progs a ‘nut’ is someone who would like to see the gov adhere to the Constitution. There’s a lot of attributes and beliefs of decent people that immoral individuals are willing to describe those who live by those principles as ‘nuts’.
Indeed, mTrump talks with great passion about defeating Muslims, he talks with equal passion about usurping the Constitutions with respect to Muslims as well!!
He talks about "taxing imports"....."to make trade fair again"????? The history of Tariff Wars clearly shows two things; One: NOBODY ever "wins" one , and Two: The side that initiates them always comes out the worse for it!!!
In a Free Society, if that is still our wish, WE the consumer, need to control the trade and secure our jobs! We do this by how, what, where and when we make our purchases!
If we had wanted to keep Jobs, money, and manufacturing in America, we needed to simply Buy American!! No taxes, no trade deals, no negotiations would have ever been necessary!
so many examples. First his laughable story-telling. Anyone with a brain can see he is a creep with women yet he denies the obvious. His ‘greatest businessman’ bragging is also obviously absurd.
Many bankruptcies, his dad buying millions in poker chips to save his casinos. Yet he says things we know cannot possibly be true over and over again. If he was your uncle at Thanksgiving everyone would just roll their eyes and leave him in the corner…
Trump is not tethered to reality (cue the ‘Hillary is a liar and killed Vince Foster rant, 3,2,1…).
October 19, 2016 at 11:14pm
Yeah, but we are the ones working and funding everything. Why do the 47 percent who pay no Federal Income Taxes get the same protection (National Security mainly from a strong military) that I do, yet they still get to vote without paying for it?
Let’s put and end to Representation Without Taxation. Able bodied and aged 18-65 but have not paid Net Federal Income Taxes of 2,400 per year for the two years preceding a
Federal Election should mean that you do not vote.

Not the America “we” created, the new America, created by IDIOT American Voters who elected a man (twice) who had no Executive Leadership experience before running for POTUS..hint: community organizer and Senator are NOT Executive Leadership positions, they are “rule by mob rule” or “rule by committee” positions only.
It is about 30 minutes after the 3rd debate….I was hoping that Trump would have followed the advice I posted here and other places and attacked the one person responsible for forcing him to do business outside America (to be competitive) because of the laws written by politicians, the one person who is responsible for good jobs leaving America…Trumps should have come out attacking the American Voter for being stupid enough to keep electing people who are screwing them out of being the best nation on Earth.

If I were a Democrat, I would be suicidal from the conflict in my brain…for a Democrat/Liberal it is OK to terminate a human in the womb, but is is NOT OK to put down a defective human adult criminal…Liberalism is a mental disorder.
You are right. Abortions and the death penalty are morally wrong.
Liberals want to take your guns to save the lives of babies, but protect abortion "rights" so they can kill the babies. I can see how a lot of libs could feel conflicted.
Yep, you can't execute a criminal, defective or otherwise. But, if you think for a second that Dems/Leftists have any qualms about 'terminating' defective non-criminals, you need to read up on euthanasia. Or about the Bolsheviks.
Along that same line ...a criminal condemned to death in most states gets an injection that puts him to sleep and he dies without feeling pain.
Now let's look at a dying patient in great pain who pleads for his/her death ...they are willing to help him/her die by food and water deprivation ...the organs slowly dry up and cause a great deal of pain before death ...IF YOU DID THAT TO A DOG YOU WOULD GO TO JAIL FOR CRUELTY! If they are willing to deprive their patient of food and water; why not just deprive them of air and get it over quickly? Of course it would be much nicer if they could be killed like the worst criminals are allowed.
So if you have a loved one in a hospital, and they refuse to help them die painlessly ...and at least get a good last meal ...if they can still eat ...then maybe your best option would be to give the patient a weapon so they could kill hospital administrators (assuming they could be enticed to visit the dying patient) ...they could either start shooting the administrators ...or at the very least, threaten them ...and maybe they could receive a quick death from the police.
(As you may notice, I do not like seeing honest, kind people being forced to live hopelessly in pain after they've decided that they would rather die - FREEDOM??)

Who the **** does not know when national voting occurs? I am 55 and learned in middle school Civics that Election Day is held every four years, in November, on the first Tuesday after the first Monday. Only an American who entered Middle School after 1979 (the year education became nationalized) could make such a mistake, or a Democratic Operative…. Are you telling me no me only one person proof read the document, probably not, thus, several idiots “allowed” the “mistake”.
 October 19, 2016 at 11:11am
Correct, and if the government assistance recipients cannot pass a drug test monthly, yet they have children, remand the children to Child Services..this crap about taking away benefits hurts the children is non-sense, simply remove the children from the home and stop paying able-bodied deadbeats to merely “exist”.

No police report filed at the time means these women are not worth talking to and deserve no media coverage whatsoever. If they did not file a police report, if there was an incident, the incident was not serious enough to warrant reporting then, why listen to them now?
Hey genius -
The majority of sexual assaults are not reported to the authorities. The Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) reports that the majority of rapes and sexual assaults perpetrated against women and girls in the United States between 1992 and 2000 were not reported to the police. Only 36 percent of rapes, 34 percent of attempted rapes, and 26 percent of sexual assaults were reported.
Reasons for not reporting assault vary among individuals, but one study identified the following as common:
Self-blame or guilt.
Shame, embarrassment, or desire to keep the assault a private matter.
Humiliation or fear of the perpetrator or other individual’s perceptions.
Fear of not being believed or of being accused of playing a role in the crime.
Lack of trust in the criminal justice system.

It is interesting that only Democrats decry Voter ID requirements…I have never heard of Republicans being accused of busing people around to vote in multiple precincts, nor have I ever heard of Republicans hiring vagrants to attend Democratic rallies to incite violence. Does anyone know why Republicans are not accused of such tripe?…because we believe in decorum, playing by the rules…and are too busy working during the day to have time for such shenanigans (we are working and paying the tax burden for the 47 percent who pay no Federal Income Taxes yet enjoy the benefits of National Security, national infrastucture….etc.).

Stupid General…he should have hired someone to install a private E-mail server, then leaked the information from his E-mail server, the DOJ would never prosecute, because we all know a precedent has been established.
Mrs. Clinton did not “mis-use E-mail” as most idiot Americans hear from the MSM. Mrs. Clinton did not merely deduce her husband’s E-mail account password, logon and pretend to be her husband while snooping around his E-mail. Mrs. Clinton did, at the very least, HIRE someone to install and maintain a PRIVATE E-Mail Server with the intent of diverting official government communication away from government hardware and other infrastructure to deliberately avoid scrutiny. When I talk to Liberals who get their news from Facebook, Yahoo, CNN, etc., they are not fully aware of the extent of Mrs. Clinton’s actions, they simply think she “mis-used” E-mail.

Unlike the mouth-breathers who would not pay for the Oprah network, I frequently pay for content I like or extra content…Rush, Glen, O’Reily…memberships and such, I would pay extra for Trump TV, but really, he needs to k1ll CNN.
 October 17, 2016 at 10:08pm
I hate the fact that anytime you are in a public venue, airports, doctors offices, etc, they always have CNN on…I frequently ask them to change to FNC…sometimes they turn off the TV…regardless, I fill out a customer satisfaction card asking why they only have CNN on, instead of the number one news network?
 October 17, 2016 at 9:12pm
Because all Americans hear from the media any more is Capitalistic Romney= bad…Barrack The Hussein who had no Executive Leadership Experience=good.
I had a discussion recently with a millennial, a co-student using the GI Bill for IT training (I am 55), he told me that Capitalism was bad…I asked him who put a gun to his head to make him buy the new VW Passat he owned….I then asked him why Capitalism is bad…all I heard was crickets. Easy to argue with a Liberal, just ask questions they cannot answer.
October 17, 2016 at 4:38pm
I believe I saw on the news here in NC that a Schwastika was at the site of the fire…any bets that this was done by a non-white person to make this incident appear to be racist?.
Want to have an interesting discussion with a liberal? Ask them if they think Trump is racist, they will predictably say yes, then ask them to name something Trump has done that is racist (point out to them they they think Trump is racist only because the news sources they get news from said Trump is racist. Next ask them if there are racists in any given group of people, of any color…they will have to agree that there are, next ask them if, according to the news, racists attend Trump rallies (reminding them they agreed that there are racists in any group of people), why the media does not report that there are racists at Hillary rallies? Wait for their head to explode. The best way to educate a liberal is to set them up and make them argue their own logic, since they cannot defend their own opinion, they are easy to defeat…you will never win them over, but you get the satisfaction of entertaining the garbage they will spew at you.
Trying to "educate" a liberal is a waste of time. They either grow out of it or lose their mind. Their elitist know all attitude won't allow listening to opposing views.
Someone in that area researched the proper orientation of the "right facing, diagonally situated, nazi swastika. That is easy enough to identify and can be more narrowly defined by using traffic and security cams for travel into and out of that area.

There is no REQUIREMENT for a Presidential Candidate to release their tax returns.
NO ONE has accused Trump of breaking the law with respect to writing off business losses and spreading the loss over the out-years (future tax returns).
Trump has simply followed the laws and tax codes which were written by an elected elite, for the elite (not the common people)….for simply using the laws as written Trump is to be crucified? Trump cannot be the only smart rich guy around who also followed the same laws and tax codes of the land. Why are not Republicans (Trump included) listing the names of rich democrats and amounts THEY wrote off and applied the loss to future tax returns?…Oh, because Trump does not have access to direct the IRS to release such information…in my best Emily Latilla voice “NEVER MIND!”.
October 16, 2016 at 12:51pm
Americans are too stupid to vote for a President, my evidence?
Americans elected a man twice (Barrack The Hussein) to be President, despite the fact the “man” had no Executive Leadership whatsoever. Americans actually thought electing someone who had never been in charge of anything could lead a nation of over 300 million and the free world?
 October 15, 2016 at 12:37pm
Trump accuser…. 30 years ago Trump physically assaulted me by groping me without my permission.
Me (as a reporter), Ma’am, can I see the police report you filed at the time, being so traumatized at the time, I am sure your filed an official complaint.
Trump accuser… I did not file a complaint….
ME (as a reporter)…since you did not file a report, have no proof that you were molested by Trump, this interview is over, basically, the incident never happened, no story here ma’am,ithrr than nice try on the Clinton’s for putting you up to this……

To the Left, diverting a bit of traffic to make a point is “bridgegate”….yet “nothing to see here” when mentioning Chappaquiddick (for those too young to remember Chappauiddick, just Google it and see about the (alleged) death of a poor woman at the hands of a young Teddy Kennedy (DUI? much?).
