The entitlement generation feels entitled to what they want without having to work for it. They want to go from mom and dad paying the bills to “government” paying. They have no idea where “government” gets that money.
The only reason we are not feeling massive pain from our descent into a socialist state is because of fiat currency and the ability to print and borrow money. It can’t last forever, and these kids voting in Bernie Sanders will just hasten the fall.

They came home to find that we had let it take over our universities and media.

If you can even FIND a male teacher… 96% are female in k-8. I went to college with a large number of education majors; suffice it to say they were NOT the smartest kids in the classes.

The Live Free or Die state chose the latter.

I wish you were right about most Americans being scared of socialism. It’s just not true anymore. Millennials like it by 70%… Others, about half think socialism is just dandy.
Our propaganda centers of public schools, MSM, and Hollywood have combined to turn us into entitled morons with no knowledge of history, economics or philosophy. We have fallen far in a few generations.

Hardly…. Socialism requires the power of a centralized government to force people (at the point of a gun) to work and have their labor stolen to pay for other people.
Jesus was more of a take care of widows and orphans, those-who-do-not-work-do-not-eat, type.
Conservatives take care of the less fortunate. They donate exponentially more to charity than democrats. Democrats vote for politicians to steal money from OTHER people to keep poor people in poverty, and the. Celebrate their moral superiority in doing so….

How do you figure? Have you seen how anyone but his supporters talk about him? On the MSM site comments sections, they think Trump is either a joke or a fascist. I’m not saying I agree, but that is the opinion of those outside the Trumo fan bubble.
Does he have some crossover support because of name recognition? Yes, but that doesn’t translate into enthusiasm, and enthusiasm is what results in turnout.
Not to mention the deluge of scandals waiting in the wings to be released if he gets the nod. YOU may not care, but many, many others will.
Also, there are some in the right who WILL NOT vote for Trump because of his seeming lack of principles.
Even if he did get the nomination, Hillary or Bernie would win the general.

I like Carson, but he seems a little naive. He basically just said that he was surprised that the media didn’t apologize after lying about him. That kind of naivety won’t play well on the world stage, where the deviousness is played for serious stakes.

Exactly. It is NOT a religion but a political system.

The U.K. Is basically a Muslim state now.

Seems like an attempt to extend the bad press for Cruz, by implication alone. Media, of course, will run with it, repeating the Iowa story and making no attempt to determine who is behind this.
Because winning on the issues doesn’t matter. Manipulating the public emotionally is what wins elections!
Geo: If that's true then look at the converse. Consider the half dozen candidates at 2% and 3%. That's a "blowout" in reverse! It's a three candidate race so don't mishmash the issue. Thanks.

Unfortunately, those of us bothering to debate that are in even a smaller minority. Most people don’t care at all, and either want their government freebies, or just want to be left alone.
Combine that with a disgusting public education system propagandizing for the State, and corrupt media doing the same, and we are lost.

I agree. The republicans are lost; the dems are socialists; third party is unrealistic. We have to have a collapse and shakeup, and with a little luck we can pull freedom from the ashes.
It’s a long shot, though. History is against us.

At first, although I favored Cruz, I could see possibly voting for Trump if he got the nod. As I learned more about him, I can’t see how ANY constitutionalist or small government voter could vote for him; not to mention the way that he flips on anyone who brings up any of his negatives.
To me, character still matters. If you sell your soul to win, you haven’t really won anything.
