How can people still believe what candidates are saying? We already know republicans and democrats will promise anything to get elected and deliver nothing. Trump has already sworn allegiance to the republicans. Trump can’t be bought because he is already owned. He sold himself for nothing, I don’t even think the GOP supporting him if he gets the nomination was part of the deal. He agreed to support republicans unconditionally though.
This guy would sell out America to get his picture on Chinese money.
He’s the far rights version of Obama.

It has also been my experience that those who actually demand raises make more than those who expect a raise be given to them.

We have Obamacare. What is the purpose of PP? Government is expensive enough without redundant programs.
Obama care provides coverage, just like Medicaid did, for low income patients. The difference between PP and other providers, is that PP sets up clinics in poor neighborhoods - neighborhoods that other clinics avoid because it is a demographic they wish to avoid.
Isn't that the big sell from you lefties for PP J-Moe? That PP is the lifeline of low income patients?
You're saying the same poor patients can't go to a local clinic under Obamacare?
I can't imagine that even you're buying your own bullsh#t right now.

Why not just keep religious doctrine out of public school period? How is the school even qualified to talk about religion? K-12 should stick to reading, writing, science and arithmetic. Any job requiring more education than that will also require college, the additional knowledge could be picked up there. Or we could just admit to ourselves that public school is really just daycare and stop with the pretend education. Dump all the overpaid daycare workers(teachers and administration), replace them with reasonably priced workers(minimum wage) and save a bunch of money. Most of these kids are going to grow up to be slackers or criminals anyway.
The education system works just fine for people who really apply themselves but the problem is, that's only about 10-20% of the students.
Can you teach history without covering religion? I seriously doubt that it's possible. Religion is a much a part of a society's history as is governmental system, economics, and social values, and is frequently tied to each.

Parents are conditioning their children by sending them to school. Parents are also the reason for the police state to begin with because they want government to do everything for them. When you expect the “village” to raise your children what we have is what you get.
Your comments are on the mark. Learned helplessness is the friend of every government monopoly union run industry. Disarmed, unable to think & act is the ultimate goal of every grubbing tax consuming parasite as they take, piece by piece, all you have until such time that government health rationing determines it is time for you to die.
From the indoctrination center, aka government school, to every location that the police state now inhabits; just doing their jobs demanding children be medicated because they act & think like children, demanding public acceptance of adults shooting children being children, the extent of the rot & evil is visible everywhere.
Even the police state sycophants here cannot make a logical explanation as to why acting as a free American with God given inalienable rights is somehow wrong, criminal, irresponsible, or not modern enough. As with every corrupt system that destroys freedom, the trolls of the police state spew hatred of freedom, law, & divide the population in every conceivable way – the easier to control.
My sense of it is that many here will go along to get along until such time that the police state, as it always does, turns on them as well.

It wasn’t a gaff. The RINOs will destroy the republican party before letting it get taken over. It’s actually a temper tantrum. It’s childish, it’s pathetic, and it’s all politics has to offer we the people. This is what happens when we limit ourselves to two choices. If you are unwilling to vote independent then you are unwilling to try and save the country. If a RINO doesn’t get the nomination then the RINOs will help put a democrat in office to punish republicans for dumping them. That’s how politicians think and act.

“Sherwin said the victim was a 25- to 30-year-old white male.”
I believe it was racial, not random. The death penalty should be the punishment regardless however. Some peoples children aren’t so precious after all.

If a conservative replacement is anything other than the free market, conservative must mean socialist. Why have so many words for federalized everything? Oh that’s right. It’s so small minded Americans think they have choices.

“and when it was pointed out that his administration has prosecuted people for having classified material on their private computers, the president said he didn’t get the impression there was an intent to “hide something or to squirrel away information.”
Yes because there are so many other reasons to go thru the trouble of having your own server instead of using the governments own servers.
She’s either hiding something or else has poor judgement. Both disqualify her for office. So what difference does it make?
Not to mention guns are protected in the bill of rights. Flashing ones penis(real or fake) is not. I do see why American companies prefer foreign workers to US educated ones though. Stupid and productive don’t go together.
Morals are gone, and yes open carry should be allowed. That being said I choose to carry concealed, one reason being if the criminal sees your gun he may not try robbing the store until you've left or he may target you first.

“The chairman of the House panel investigating the deadly attacks in Benghazi, Libya, says he fired a staffer for mishandling classified information, among other causes.”
So why is it taking so long to show Hillary did the same thing? The biggest evidence that Podliska is a republican would be him getting punished for mishandling classified information. Laws should be clear enough that it doesn’t require years of investigating to determine whether or not they were broken. It’s just distraction.
My guess is that he had a boss that actually cares about National Security.
Whole different breed of "investigators" working Hilly's case. We call them, "lawyers".
Mrs. Clinton did not do the same thing, she removed an ambassador for serious misconduct and incompetency, you are hideously mistaken.

Really? I’ll give you a hint. The American Freedom Act was supposed to fix the patriot act and Dodd-Frank was supposed to fix another. Those are just 2. Democrats think everything republicans do is bad and vise versa. It’s a finger pointing game.

Republicans(like democrats) only pretend to care about the country. If republicans were willing to do the things Rand suggests, they would. Nothing has been stopping them except their own unwillingness to try. The goal of both parties is communism. Republicans pretend to believe in economic freedom while openly attacking social freedom while the dems are the opposite. Both parties attack their chosen “freedom” while promising to undo all the damage the other party did. Neither party undoes any damage, both continue to attack freedom.
People who voted for Obama may have poor judgement but those who continue to believe republican campaign promises are morons. The only way we get new politics is with new parties. Democrats want socialism so they’re going to stay committed. Republicans claim to want freedom but I think they really just want republicans to win. It’s like a sport and they’re just blindly rooting for their team.
What Republican caused damage has the Democrats promised to undo?
And it's sad that the "Good ol' Boys" club consists of the rinos and progressives that support and go along to get along with the Dems just to keep their jobs. Thank GOD the ball has started rolling to remove these leaches of society. Good-bye John!
knowbodyknows; you paint with a pretty broad brush. Although for the most part I would agree with your assertion, but I find it disingenuous that you cannot find one single politician who doesn't fit that mold?
"The goal of both parties is communism." I didn't need to read any further.

I’m surprised we still have Halloween. It seems like a pretty high risk activity for our bubble wrap society.

“He disputed what he said were the reasons given for his termination: using work email to send a social invitation to colleagues, assigning an “unauthorized project” to an intern and allegedly putting classified information on an unclassified system.”
This guy obviously works for the Clintons. He seems to have just as much trouble following rules.

It’s all hype anyway. Violent crime is trending down in America and has been for decades. The difference is the reporting. Anything to keep the focus off out of control spending, unsustainable deficits, a severely over-bloated bureaucracy, corrupt career politicians, and the absolute failure of every government program to deliver on the promises made. How dumb must some Americans be to constantly complain about the result of government “solving problems” and then cry for the government to fix things when they don’t get their way. One day Americans will wake up communists as they grow government in an attempt to eliminate all risk from life. It doesn’t work. It never has. It never will.
Perhaps certain violent crimes in some areas might be trending down in some areas, but that is not true as an all encompassing blanket statement.
For one example, far more cops are being targeted and shot just for being cops then ever before.
And antisemitic violence is increasing, especially on college campuses.
At or near the border, violent crimes such as kidnapping of girls for forced prostitution and slavery, are increasing, as well as torture and murder by the drug cartels that have relatively free access across our Southern border.

Not surprising. We don’t hold politicians accountable either. Wouldn’t want to set a precedent of punishing those who betray their country. It might discourage bad people from running for office.
