    It’s not a clash of atheism vs belief, it’s a clash between demonstrable fact and Biblical allegory.

    I have come very late to a realization of what has happened in both parties as they have learned to attract loyal supporters. The successful candidates have been authoritarian. Most of us recognized the authoritarian streak in Obama who doesn’t care about legal and constitutional limitations even when they touch civil liberties. The only one that remains standing is the second amendment. That’s because allmost all of the factions today don’t feel comfortable being unarmed in the presence of their equally angry opponents.

    Cruz is a now almost extinct constitutionalist. Oh, many others repeat the mantra of constitutionalism but what they really want is to win, get things done, build the wall, erect tariffs to protect business who are automating but staying domestic, abandon our allies (let them defend themselves), get rid of certain “kinds” of immigrants, and so on. The voters are as authoritarian minded as are Trump, Clinton and Sanders.

    In reply to the contribution Goodbye, Republican Party. And Good Riddance.

    As an old man, I’m amazed at the distain and distrust the great majority have toward scientists and science. The return on investment for scientific investment has been monumental in the ways it has imporoved an lengthened our lives. I was born into a world that boasted it’s modernity. We had 25 cycle electricity, magneto phones, no television and limited radio due to the location, and many other inconveniences that would be considered intolerable today. Most of the life improvements have been the result of a collaboration between capitalism and science (often government funded). Yet only 19 % of the population accept most scientific gains in knowledge. Hostility and hatred are more the norm than the exception.

    Another monument to something that never happened. Allegorical text of the Bible is not literally true but it has lessons to teach. People believe in the tales told through text, carving and painting in Hindu Temples and of the Ramakien in Buddhist Temples. Buddhism is based on the life and teachings of an actual, historical person but most of the historical tales related in the murals and reliefs never happened but they are intermixed with depictions of actual events.

    I don’t want to condem any of this but it’s necessary to keep grounded in what has happened an why. The geological history of the earth is written in the rocks and formations and we had best not deny it but should study it.

    Trump’s badmouthing and trash talking works very well. He’s likely to win the nomination! The Trumpetts attack tactics work to perfection. Oppose Trump and pay the consequences.

    Bad move for the rocket scientists, if any are still alive. Try again? Okay if any are left.

    Threatening or, rather promising riots if Trump doesn’t win is certainly the height of American politics. Especially since any Trump win will be by less than half the Republican primary voters.

    Zarif said that Iran’s defensive capabilities were excluded from the landmark nuclear agreement.

    I’d guess a robust nuclear deterrent is a important aspect of Iran’s defensive posture. Additionally a preemptive strike against their three most dangerous enemies – America, Israel and Saudi Arabia – might be the ultimate Iranian defense.

    The sergeant should do what we all should all do. Train and arm your wife and any kids of age. Be observant around your house and neighborhood. Keep calm but aware.

    There you go. By your post you’ve proven Gutfeld’s point. Enjoy your affair with The Donald.

    I see, Trump wins and puts his enemies (and yours) in jail. The attraction of Trump for most of his supporters is that he promises to be an autocrat, throwing enemies in jail for their opposition. Particularly evil are those who call themselves conservative but who cannot see the wonder that is Trump.

    Trump is a would be autocrat. Why any Reagan conservative would support him, I cannot understand. Trump is not what the Tea Party wanted. He is someone who would “get things done” but they will destroy the republic.

    Of course the fact that Pakistani Christians were attacked and murdered on Easter is well known to Obama and his administration. Our government has as one of its goals the silencing and marginalization Christians. The genocide in Syria and in Iraq of Christians and other minorities has been covertly encouraged and has been covered up as long as possible. The refugees who are Muslim and even Potentially ISIS are favored over Christians. In the USA the government searches for ways to suppress long held beliefs and actions.

    Perhaps you don’t recall that Reagan was a true conservative. Maybe you weren’t about then. Trump has no moral base. He’s an opportunist without any foundation.

    Answer them, yes. Lie about them, not without responses.

    By your enemies you shall be known. Some of Trump’s self declared implacable enemies include Ted Cruz (of course – lyin Ted), Rush Limbaugh, Mark Levin, Charles Krauthammer, Megyn Kelly, and anyone who has said the smallest thing critical of him. Trumpetts enthusiastically voice agreement and proceed to bash them and call for their firing or even exile. I wonder if that will be before or after Trump sues them for their questions and opinions. Trump is his own and only foreign policy advisor. He is going to get things done through amorphous deals or by just bulling then through.

    And this man is likely to be the next president because he will run against the most flawed and corrupt democrat ever to run.

    If not, BLM will teach them.

    What’s a few kids in Flint? I mean she has a near perfect anti business record after all. We’re are your prioritie?

    When Rubio loses in Florida, he won’t even be able to get a job as a clerk in a convenience market. There will be consequences for opposing the Donald. Look out Megan Kelly and Charles Krauthammer.
