    What most people don’t seem to understand, including those who support Trump, is why so many people are supporting Trump. Trump supporters are simply sick and tired of being bullied by the political class and having the Republicans put up a token resistance to the Democrats before caving in to their every demand. They don’t even demand any concessions, they simply cave in and then beat their chests about what a great job they’ve done. The people want a BULLY that they believe will do what is right for them, not be beholding to a bunch of donors. The Declaration of Independence states “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government,…” Trump is the shot across the bow of the wannabe ruling class. Notice that I said “RULING class” not governing class. There is a difference. One thinks it is above the people and freedom be damned they are going to dictate to the rabble how to live their lives. The other knows that the first rule of governance applies to them and understand that if they fail to abide by it, they can be changed. The first rule of governance is that those who govern ONLY do so at the discretion of the govern. JFK articulated it best when he said “Those that make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.” That’s advice that the heads of both parties had better heed.

    Do you realize that Wyoming only has 3 electoral college votes? Ohio and Florida each have over 20. Cruz doesn’t come close to having enough delegates to win the general, nor will he have enough support. Throw in the fact that by Constitutional standards he isn’t eligible. Haven’t we had enough years of an ineligible president? I like Cruz, but he isn’t what the people need in DC. He has accomplished NOTHING while there and as President he would accomplish even less. Obama circumvents the separation of powers in the Constitution because he can threaten congress members with inciting exactly this type of violence if they stand up to him. He has advocated the use of violence against political opponents. He has the Republicans in DC quaking in their boots at the mayhem he can cause in their districts, not because he has any good ideas or anything other than threats of violence. Trump has the personal power to be able to hold that same type of sway over the Democrats. The people are supporting Trump because they are sick of having a bully in the White House that is intent on destroying this country.

    I like Cruz, but if you truly support the Constitution, Cruz is no more eligible than Obamao. Neither truly meet the criteria for being a “natural born citizen”. They both were born with legal loyalties to other countries. I voted for Cruz for the Senate. He’s a great conservative senator. He’s still not eligible to be commander in chief of the military.

    While I voted for Cruz for the Senate, he is not eligible to be commander in chief of the military because he was born with citizenship to another country. The framers used the term “Natural Born citizen” only one place in the Constitution and that was for president and the reason is simple. They had just fought a war with people who had split loyalties in command positions. Most of the military commanders in the Continental Army were committing treason. Benedict Arnold went back to the side of the government that he was a citizen of. They did not want to risk having a commander in chief who might be a citizen of the country that they were at war with. The reference book on government where they got the phrase from “Laws of Nations” defines a “Natural born citizen” as the offspring of two citizens. Cruz does not meet that description. Nor does Obamao for that matter. Under the definition that the left has been pushing for decades, Russian spy Anna Chapman could give birth and raise a child in Russia that was fathered by Edward Snowden and have that child be eligible to be President at 35 yrs old. Anyone else see how that could be a problem? Does the phrase “Manchurian Candidate” ring a bell?

    Actually I would disagree with you on one point. Fortunately for the rest of us, he did get exactly what was coming to him. Now they need to find out where he got the illegal gun and hold that person responsible as well as his two psychopathic sidekicks. Wanna bet that they are adults who had him use the gun because he was a minor and would get a lesser sentence?

    But they made the decision to get pregnant and then made the decision to keep the children. Most of those women did it for the welfare check. I’ve dealt with plenty of them. I had one tell straight up that she couldn’t earn as much with an associates in office management as she was receiving on welfare so why bother working. In some states the benefits are so generous that they amount to a middle class income for doing nothing but breeding wantonly. I don’t know about you, but I’d love to be receiving the equivalent of a $50,000 plus a year job sitting around a section 8 house with all utilities paid.

    What proof is there of them actually being the ones making the phone calls? With all of the dirty tricks that I have seen both of the party establishments playing on candidates that they don’t like (including their own) I wouldn’t put it past someone in one of the party headquarters to have been the ones behind it. Sort of like Cruz’s people calling voters to tell them that Ben Carson had pulled out when Carson had left Iowa to get some clean clothes from home.

    Wait until the deficit spending makes the dollar worth less than the Deutschmark during the Weimar Republic and all of the food stamp and ebt cards combined won’t by a loaf of bread. THEN you’ll begin seeing REAL rioting in the streets. And people wonder why I want to get at least 10 – 20 miles outside of the nearest town.

    Hey Slap, did you notice how these kinds of things never seem to happen in states with lawful concealed carry? While the leftists would attack people at TEA party rallies in California, there wasn’t a single incident of violence at them in Phoenix. Of course the abundance of both concealed and openly carried firearms in attendance might have had something to do with it.

  • [7] February 28, 2016 at 12:43pm

    Sorry Fward but you are wrong. More people are killed in this country by UNARMED assailants than are killed by all of the rifles and shotguns combined. A fist or boot is a contact weapon and there is no reason whatsoever for anyone to not respond with whatever weapon is at hand in order to reduce the risk of bodily harm from an attacker. Why should I allow myself to be injured by any miscreant simply to make it a “fair” fight? Do you feel an obligation to allow some attacker to put you into the hospital or kill you because they are intent on beating you to death with their bare hands or kicking your ribs in? Or do you feel that you have an obligation to YOUR family to go home at the end of the day as healthy as possible and able to go to work to provide for them?

    I am very much hoping that there won’t be a race war because a lot of good people will be killed on both sides. This entire black/white thing is going to have to come to a head and since the truth will simply hurt too much for the blacks to want to hear it, I expect them to get violent instead of fixing the problems that are destroying their communities. A study revealed 10 major factors in determining if someone was going to grow up in poverty. Here are five of them:
    1. Criminal record.
    2. Drug addiction
    3. Child born out of wedlock
    4. Giving birth before age 25
    5. High school drop out.
    Perhaps the problem isn’t that whites won’t hire blacks, it’s because they can’t hire drug addicted felons without a high school diploma and a dozen illegitimate children. Who’s fault is it if blacks make those poor decisions?

    I was browsing through a Walmart last week and a young black man called me over (I work for a vendor so I have a Walmart Vendor badge). I told him that I didn’t work there, but would help him if I could. He accused me of following him and thinking he was going to steal. He then pulled out a brand new credit card from his pocket and told me that he had money, he didn’t need to steal. I think he must have had a guilty conscience or something.

    I’m just waiting to see which other country will sacrifice the number of troops it will take to disarm the American public. Even China would lose too many men to make it worth it to them. Not to mention how many American service members will desert and bring their weapons and gear with them when the foreigners start killing American citizens in America.

  • [6] February 19, 2016 at 12:33am

    Or at least attend their funerals because everyone knows how much more important criminal slugs like Michael Brown, Eric Gardener and that Grey guy are than an associate justice of the Supreme Court.

    Weeks? I have buddies with arsenals for years. When you can buy ammo in bulk at discounted rates, everyone stocks up. When I was doing volunteer recruiting for the NRA at the gun shows in Phoenix, I’d see people rolling garden carts (the green ones with the 600 lb load limits) out to their cars with tens of thousands of rounds of ammo on them. The one commercial ammo reloader and wholesaler had a pallet of 5.56 ammo waist high sell out by 1 pm on the first day of the show. That was only at ONE of their four booths. While they sell smaller boxes, most of their reloads are sold in 500 round plastic ammo boxes. They even provide loaner hand trucks to people who need it to get their purchases to the car. I will neither confirm nor deny taking advantage of that service on one or more occasions.

    Who’s more pro oligarch, the leftists who want to concentrate all of the power into the hands of the career politicians, their bureaucrat lackeys and their corrupt power brokers, or the Constitutionalists who are saying that the government that governs best, governs least?

    Last I checked Jenna Jamison was a conservative business woman. People who actually have to run their businesses are seldom leftists unless they have reached a point where they have so much money that all of the taxes that they push to impose won’t impact their standard of living. By then, they have all of their assets set up in corporations or trust funds so that they will never have to pay the crippling inheritance and capital gains taxes that they seek to impose on others. Nothing creates true multi generational wealth like huge inheritance taxes. The Warren Buffets and George Soros of the world decry the ability to pass one’s property to their heirs, while stashing the bulk of their wealth into trusts and corporations to avoid those taxes. Then when the patriarch of a ranching or farming family dies, they have their corporation or trust fund swoop in and buy up that farm or ranch from the grieving family that has no means by which to pay the tax. They then can control the farm or ranch without fear of it ever being lost to an inheritance tax since neither a trust nor a corporation can ever die.

    What a load of equine excrement. Has anyone complaining about this ad ever looked at the number of main stream actors and actresses who have done soft core porn in order to make ends meet before making it big in the movie industry? The list is NOT short. Would there have been this much hoopla if it had been Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone? Both of them did soft core porn before becoming stars. It’s a JOB.

    Your name is an oxymoron. You can either be a libertarian or a socialist, but not both. They are mutually exclusive. You can either believe in liberty, or the government having the authority to steal the fruits of one man’s labors to give them to another unearned. You can not do both.

  • [-1] February 11, 2016 at 10:02am

    Because of that stupid action by the feds, the next standoff will be very bloody, probably on both sides. There will be a number of flag draped coffins and like the murder of a mine inspector in WV 20 years ago, good luck finding a jury willing to convict.

    It’s what totalitarian communists have always been. It’s just the first time that the voting population was stupid enough to elect one.
