I realize that many people in this country don’t have the time to do real research on candidates and rely on snippets and soundbites from the commentary of news reporters and pundits. This gives a skewed view of things.It’s not surprising that the average American doesn’t understand the process, an therefore, when someone like Trump exploits that naivete, things get a little, heated.Trump says he wants to unite the party, but yet his rhetoric and actions seem to prove otherwise. I will never be able to support someone who has gone out of way to insult and demean those with whom he disagrees.Plenty of factual and anecdotal information to vet Trump, but yet, is virtually ignored by his followers, much like Hillary’s supporters.
My research shows that Colorado changed the rules at the beginning of this election cycle (Aug 2015) in order to weaken the chances of any outsiders. Since all the negative backlash the same dummies decided to change the rules back next time.
Trump correctly pointed out that Cruz does well when party bosses decide and when primary voters are excluded. This is a fact.

Because of the overuse of the word “racist”, it no longer has meaning. It just means the people who constantly use it are too lazy to use a thesaurus, or a dictionary.

I agree with you 100%. She has become a raving cretin.

If you are a Darwinian, and support the idea of the survival of the fittest, then one could theorize that **** sapiens are on the verge of extinction, or, God have mercy on our souls!

This is just a taste of what life will be like under a President Trump: manipulating and censoring what journalists and pundits can say to him or about him. Right now it seems silly and trite, but it won’t be if he wins. You think Obama is bad, he’s “JV” in comparison to Trump. Trump supporters don’t realize that his charismatic,vainglorious persona he portrays is used to seduce people into supporting him, and then, just like Obama, he will reveal his true, controlling, contemptuous, dictatorial self.

Cruz is correct. Trump is UGE ratings for the media. It’s all of the TV media.Every TV national news outlet has him on by phone, or televises any utterance or news conference he holds.The other candidates, when they do appear, get hammered with questions and are constantly interrupted by the interviewer, who usually are adversarial in their questioning. Questions for Donald Trump have sometimes been hard, but when he doesn’t feel comfortable answering a question, he changes the subject and the answer to the question is dropped. I can barely stand watching or listening to the national news media anymore. I hear or see Donald Trump I mute it. I want something of substance. I’m sick of the obsession of an adolescent narcissist whose only thoughts are about himself. If you believe otherwise, I suggest you listen very closely to what he says and read a book on basic psychology.
Let's also remember Cruz has to be a Senator from time-to-time. He works in a legislative body, which, by definition (a la Mr. Trump) doesn't have the smartest, best people.
Donald, on the other hand, has the smartest, the best in the business, they're so good you don't even know their names...so, yeah.

Obviously many people do not understand the mind of narcissistic, manipulative, control freaks such as Donald Trump. He just happens to be a rich one, who gets a pass because he’s a celebrity. He’s no different than the other pathological sociopaths that are very good at charming, lying, then controlling to the point of there is very little room to escape without consequences not always pleasant. I have dealt with people like this and believe me, it’s easy to dupe even the smartest of people. Donald Trump has been equivocal on everything he has promulgated as his stance on any number of positions. Even within the same conversation he contradicts himself. This is a dangerous man that makes Obama look like JV. I’m sorry that so many people do not understand the dynamic of Donald Trump. The information, especially with what he has said in the past year is ignored by his supporters. This is not from years ago. This is recent. Anger with no direction other than to lash out in retaliation and little to no long term direction is dangerous. He is exploiting anger for his own purpose. I for one will not support a loose cannon because he’s a charmer and manipulator. Been there, done that, and believe me, we’ll all live to regret it if he’s elected POTUS.

In PA, the left lane is for passing. Obviously many people either don’t know or don’t care. However, to tailgate is illegal too. Now combine the two, you’ve increased the possibility of aggressive behavior. Both parties are culpable. It appears that many people don’t have the ability to think, just have knee-jerk reactions to situations. We’re a culture of instant gratification, instant aggression and rage, entitlement, self-importance, and the list goes on.

Not against their will. It;s the policies of the great society that promotes this mindset. And yes, black population has significantly decreased because of this. Latino population will soon be the largest minority because of this practice, among other reasons.Blacks are no longer the ruling voting class of the democrats.Why do you think illegal immigration is such a big issue?The govt is seeking new blood.Also, didn’t you notice how many blacks feel cheated by Obama? He promised a better life. Didn’t happen.Now more division and violence.

Self funding means he is not beholding to us as well. Just keep that in mind.

Apparently, most people don’t know a narcissistic sociopath when they hear/see one. Donald Trump and Barack Obama are cut from the same cloth. Those who wish to worship at the Trump altar will at some point, esp if he’s elected POTUS, will realize that his will be done, and it won’t be what you want or expected. He’s a charmer like Obama and tells people what they want to hear. Just look at past behavior. Good luck. DT supporters will get what they deserve, at some point, just like BHO, HC supporters.
CRAZY, "Apparently, most people don’t know a narcissistic sociopath when they hear/see one."
They are all narcissistic sociopaths. It is just that some are more overt than others when it comes to their twisted souls.
What's the difference between Obama and Trump?
- both use force of personality, threats and intimidation as negotiating tactics
- both "take their ball and go home" if others don't play by their rules
- both later claim that it (their goal) wasn't what they really wanted if they lose
- both never admit to losing
- both operate on what is in their "interest" rather than basing positions on sound principles
- both had no relevant political experience before running for president
- both will lie when the truth would sound better if a lie furthers their interests
- both are creatures of the liberal mass media and owe their success entirely to that media
- both are hyper-sensitive to criticism
- both praise any source of support, regardless of values, and then degrade that support if it waivers
- both run campaigns of broad platitudes almost devoid of detail explained by them (paid policy wonks create poll driven programs Obama and Trump "propose" but don't really believe or understand)
- both always have and always will put their own personal interest above all others
So, Trump supporters, if you hate what Obama has done to this country, you will really be sick to your stomach after a couple of years of a Pres. Trump. And that is because he is not who he says he is, he does not believe what he says he believes and will not do what he says he will do. Do I hear echoes of Obama?

These are the same people that would cry for help, wondering why this is happening to them. They don’t pay attention to what is happening in the world, only getting their news from sound-bites,twitter, fb, you-tube, etc. They live in their own self-absorbed, entitled, existence with the expectation that we are to support them financially, all while they live it up in college, come out as progressive bots and bloviate about evil America is. Let them try talking themselves out of being murdered by these radical islamists…I don’t think being nice and telling them you empathize with their “feelings” will change their minds. Good luck in the real world. You better hope you don’t have to experience it any time soon.

All he was trying to do was tell the story of his life from rags to riches…meaning coming from a place of poverty and violence to become a world renowned pediatric neurosurgeon and now possibly President of the United States. I am really disgusted how this man is treated by the media while Barack Obama was as revered as God.Is it because Dr. Carson is a conservative Christian, or because being the next black president is so yesterday?
I know this is not a popular opinion here, but just because he is a Christian does not mean he should not get the kind of scrutiny every candidate for president has to go through...
...not that these things actually matter, but don't you think it is curious that so much of what this man has said about himself seems to be fabricated or at least grossly exaggerated?
crazy : Agree but Carson would be our FIRST black president . Obama is nothing more than a biracial Communist sympathizer . Mom a college hippie and dad an African anti- capitalist polygamist ! Just research Obama's background which the Lefty MSM never did and the American public is too busy keeping up with the Kardashians to be bothered to do on their own ( if the Left hasn't already stashed his history as deeply as his college records ) .

Fantastic! People CAN change their minds upon seeing the truth! Millersville, PA is a community in Lancaster County PA, a good, decent place. 2 of my children graduated from MU, so I know that MU has been totally polluted by the Progressive agenda pushing profs. Maybe this young woman’s willingness to be open-minded enough to look at the videos will reach many others to do the same. I hope it does.

Well guess what, Ms Pelosi…I’ve delivered babies under 20 weeks and believe me, they fight to live.How dare you and anyone who wants to kill and harvest organs of these babies get indignant and self-righteous! It’s sickening and despicable.

I saw the interview with Greta. Seriously, I don’t understand why everyone seems to think that Donald Trump is going to be the savior of the USA. He’s the right’s version of Obama, and we sure as hell don’t need another narcissist in chief running roughshod all over anyone who disagrees with him, Although running the country definitely would benefit from someone who has the business savvy and experience that Trump has, he also has an ego that gets in the way. Trump has gotten so much coverage and support from Fox News; most of the time they obviously defend him. Boo hoo that there are a few who don’t. The vitriol I’m hearing and reading from the RIGHT towards others who don’t kiss the Trump ring is disturbing. It’s no better than what the left does…name-calling and hateful speech. We don’t need to be dividing the country even more.

And what words of wisdom would Diane Feinstein have to say about this?THIS WAS TORTURE! How about the torture and killing in Houston? Mississippi?

I was raised as a Baptist and over the years attended different Christian churches,synagogue and studied world religions in college. What I found is that people are more enriched in their lives because they can think and feel beyond themselves, that humanity is exceptional, as is all life, no matter where it exists. The problem many seem to have with religion is with the doctrine that “defines” a particular belief. Humanism, to me, seems a rather depressing and limiting way of thinking about human existence. If one chooses to go that path, fine. I think it is not right to assert that believers of any kind are not intelligent, free thinking people, and therefore should cease and desist believing and/or practicing their religion. What ever happened to peaceful co-existence? Tolerance? Respect? We live in the United States of America, where the first amendment to the constitution guarantees the right— freedom of religion and its practice.

I am a retired psych and OR nurse. I know the stigma of how some people are regarded when it comes to substance abuse and mental health issues. I don’t find this incident necessarily surprising. Drug users and mentally ill people are still considered less than human in the minds of many people, including the doctors, nurses and other health care workers and are regarded as such. I know this first hand. It is a horrible commentary against those who are supposed to help and not hurt those who are sick. But this is the part of human nature that we apparently cannot get beyond in this juncture of our social evolution.
Stole the words right out of my mouth. Was an EMT for 2 years, and even I noticed the "Hippocrats" (yes a very bad play on words I know" from time to time. It's a shame, but it must be difficult treating the same people over and over in an ER

You must be an employee of the IRS to say something as asinine as that or maybe you just enjoy ******* away taxpayer money in some other venue. Expressing empathy towards others is a virtue, being an ass is not.
