I’m freakin’ sick. Our country is off the rails. Our politicians give themselves huge salaries, pensions, and other benefits all at our expense. Next we’ll have a $100 millionaire or billionaire that will never have to spend another dime of their own money because we’ll still be picking up the tab.
We need to start a movement to demand they eliminate pensions for elected officials and get no health benefits after they leave office. Then most of them will have to leave office and get real jobs after a couple of terms if they ever want to retire. That’s the only constitutional way to force term limits.
Don’t you just sometimes wish we could bring our founding fathers to the present day to hear their take on all of this. …On 2nd thought no. That would be an incredibly horrible scene to witness ..the broken hearts, the fury, the despair they would surely feel at what we have allowed to happen to the republic they gave us.
I am so sorry Mr. Franklin.. because.. no, so sadly.. we didn’t keep it.
The only drawback to that is the politicians will be even more tempted to sell influence or favors than they are now.

Disgusting comedian building his show around attacking disabled people that already have too many challenges to overcome in their lives…but I believe in free speech; too bad the Canadians don’t. Don’t forget that Trump did essentially the same thing to a NY Times reporter.

Hey there Marine, would you support someone who insulted your wife and publicly accused your dad of helping to kill President Kennedy. I don’t think so. You’re asking him to honor his word to a foul-mouthed person like Trump and forget his family was attacked. If you did that, you’d really have no honor. No one thought when they made those pledges that one of the candidates would stoop so low making mean-spirited personal attacks on their families and then still expect an endorsement. Sometimes situations change and you have to make hard choices. I would stand by my wife and family and let less honorable men judge me poorly for it.

Is voting the way you believe now supposed to be something bad? I didn’t realize we had to vote the way YOU believe. Wow, I almost screwed that up; I really do need to start paying attention.

Trump was speaking about executive orders recently. He said Obama opened the door for their use, but he (Trump) will use them much more effectively. Now you should be scared. Congress wouldn’t stop the President when he was in a different party, what hope is there that they’ll stop someone who is the nominative head of their own party. I’m afraid we’re equally screwed no matter who wins.

Trump’s house! What? Are you even an American?
Trump is just supposed to be a representative, not our master. He doesn’t own the Republican party, he just happens to be the one selected by the Republican’s to lead the race for the White House. That’s like saying the quarterback owns the team.

Come out of your parent’s basement and into the real world.

Anyone that would endorse a person who insulted his wife and implied his dad helped assassinate a President wouldn’t even be fit to have as a friend, much less as a President. Anyone that thinks you can’t take a dump on someone and then expect them to help, either isn’t very smart or they have no moral foundation. Which is it?

Grand kids? The state will be their family.

Probably even harder because of where ‘he’ was located.

And another Trump supporter said that the large donors that wouldn’t give money to Trump should be tried for Treason. Treason if we don’t give to Trump. What! That makes the IRS denying conservative groups a tax exemption look like very small potatoes. Lois Lerner will be glad to learn she’s in the clear. Trump will try and wield as much power as he can get away with and Obama has proven how much can be gotten away with.

Did you have a color of people that you think would be better or more appropriate? I didn’t know that’s how we sorted now. I always sorted people by ‘jerks’ or ‘not jerks’; it never occurred to me that color of their skin had anything to do with their ‘jerky-ness’. Thanks for educating us bigot wannabes.

If Kaisich is Bozo (I’ll take your word for it) then I’d say Trump must be Captain Kangaroo.

You’re in a dream world! Trump had threatened multiple times during the primaries not to honor his pledge. He’s the one who insinuated Carson was a pedophile, called Fiorina and Cruz’s wife ugly, and tweeted about Cruz’s father being in on the Kennedy killing. Nothing was out of bounds for him, he didn’t care who he insulted if it got him press. Trump is a foul-mouthed bully, and needs to respect other people if he wants to be respected. What exactly would be over the line for you? Would you vote for someone that made fun of your wife in public? I don’t think so. I’d rather vote for someone who won’t stand for another candidate talking about his family. Trump is essentially an older, more masculine (but not by much) version of ‘Kim Kardashian’.
He signed a pledge with his word..PERIOD! he said he did out of bounds kim kardasian all excuses, Ted showed his true being ... NOT A MAN OF HIS WORD

So Trump wanted all of the benefits of being President but wanted someone else to actually do the job. Wow, who saw that coming? Trump will be in charge of traveling around on Air Force 1 and going on Talk Shows.

And what if neither of the two leaders is better than the other? Maybe all of this talk of having to vote for one of the two is what keeps a third party/person from being viable. That’s how the Democrats and the Republicans keep a lock on power.
 July 20, 2016 at 4:44pm
I respect your opinion, but don’t understand where you get your faith in Trump. I think he’ll bleed us dry, and will sell access through his kids every inch of the way. They look at this as business….
That’s why I can’t support him even though I wish Hillary was in jail. I think both are equally bad.
