    Bill Kristol is more than welcome to go down with the ship. Every right thinking conservative should have abandoned ship weeks ago.

    “Just 45 percent of Republican voters say they are satisfied with Donald Trump as their party’s presumptive presidential nominee, while 52 percent say they would have preferred someone else, according to results from the latest national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.”

    Sorry Jax, but the Trumpettes will be totally responsible for a Hillary presidency. We’ve been telling you for many, many months that Trump is unelectable. You’ll have to find out the hard way. I wash my hands of Donald Trump and the Republican party.

    “Will echoes the sentiments of many conservative Republicans now, who feel absolutely betrayed by what amounts to an infection of our home party by Know-nothings, radical Nationalists, and neo-liberals, who find Trump’s dizzying habit of flipping on every topic as a gateway for ending conservative influence in politics forever.”

    “Draft Scott Walker. Pair him up with Ted Cruz. Unite all factions of the party. Then harness the energy of those who detest Hillary Clinton with those who detest Trump and who will be thankful for his replacement. That coalition can win. There is still time too. Fortuitously, the Republicans have set their convention in July instead of the end of August. We have one full month longer after the convention that lets us build up this new ticket.

    Donald Trump will not win. He cannot unite the party and he cannot build a winning coalition. Disaster is upon us, but we still have time to stop it. If you oppose tyranny, you must oppose Trump. If you oppose Hillary Clinton, you must oppose Donald Trump. If you oppose unqualified and dangerous Presidential candidates, you must oppose Donald Trump. If you oppose defeat, you must oppose Trump.

    The delegates must set themselves free for the good of the party, the country, and our shared future.”

    From The Resurgent: Eric Erickson………….

    “What is most probable and more obvious each day is that with Donald Trump as the Republican nominee, Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States. There is too much on the line for us to let that happen. The Supreme Court decisions this past week prove it. But to stop Hillary Clinton from becoming President, Republicans must stop Donald Trump from becoming the Republican nominee. Trump as the nominee makes it vastly more likely that Hillary Clinton will become President.

    No amount of calls for rallying to Trump’s banner will help him. The Republican Party is already the smaller of the two major political parties. Even if I and all the Republicans who oppose him should suddenly support him, it would not be enough. His negatives are over 70%. He hovers around 30% in the polls. His fundraising is, politely, anemic. He is prone to gaffes of extraordinary size. He has no campaign apparatus to turn people out in November and his campaign surrogates have no compelling message to convert the undecided to supporters. His loudest existing supporters are seemingly working over time to turn off undecided voters and drive them into the arms of Hillary Clinton.”

    Donald Trump in 2013………

    “We are now closer to having an economic community in the best sense of the term — we work with each other for the benefit of all.

    I think we’ve all become aware of the fact that our cultures and economics are intertwined. It’s a complex mosaic that cannot be approached with a simple formula for the correct pattern to emerge. In many ways, we are in unchartered waters.

    The good news, in one respect, is that what is done affects us all. There won’t be any winners or losers as this is not a competition. It’s a time for working together for the best of all involved. Never before has the phrase “we’re all in this together” had more resonance or relevance.

    We will have to leave borders behind and go for global unity when it comes to financial stability.”

    Trumpettes, you’re being played like a fiddle. A bad fiddle, but a fiddle all the same.

    Man, I don’t even pretend to know what’s in their best interests. I love the British people. They treated me as one of their own while living and working over there. We should take heed. Every empire comes to an end at some point.

    Having lived in England for four years, was married to an English woman and have an English son-in-law who now lives in America, I’ll have to agree with Charles Krauthammer, who stated last evening on Special Report that he sees an end to Great Britain as we know it in the near future. Scotland will most likely vote to succeed from Great Britain and join the EU and Northern Ireland will succeed and join a united Ireland. The Brits are just as divided as we are. Both extremes are pulling at opposite ends and there seems to be no middle ground.

    In a general election, your assumption is correct, but not in primaries when the parties nominate their candidate. There is nothing in the Constitution that says ‘the will of the people’ has anything to do with a party choosing its candidate. The party doesn’t even have to have primary elections. This is how the Democrats use Super Delegates in their nominating process. It doesn’t matter how the people vote, the Super Delegates can choose whomever they want. You can’t conflate a primary election with a general election.

    Old England – The Waterboys

    A man looks up on a yellow sky
    And the rain turns to rust in his eye
    Rumors of his health are lies
    Old England is dying

    His clothes are a dirty shade of blue
    And his ancient shoes, worn through
    He steals from me and he lies to you
    Old England is dying

    Still he sings an Empire’s song
    Still he keeps his navy strong
    And he sticks his flag where it ill belongs
    Old England is dying

    I guess that should be scars, not scares…..I think…lol.

    That’s weird. I used to sing “Stairway” to the girls…..and they all ran away. Man, the scares still hurt.

    Trump is preaching to the choir. Unfortunately for him, the choir isn’t large enough to get him elected.

    How can anyone give a thumbs down to this comment? I dislike Trump as much as anyone on this site, but Pappy’s comments are the work of an artist! Politics aside, I think everyone should appreciate the godlike genius of Pap’s words. You don’t write something like that without putting a lot of thought into it. “The Warlord of Mars to Take Over Earf”!

    Don’t worry Pap, a lot of us appreciate your effort……even though your politics sucks! ;)

    Being on the Sean Insanity tv show every night is only going to get you a limited amount of votes.

    Pappy, excellent comment as always. You know I respect you greatly. Here it is, mid June 2016, and we’re still yelling at each other like it was still last year. Nothing changes and most probably won’t. I’m not spending the next four months arguing the merits, or lack of merits of Donald Trump. He’s not getting my vote, or the votes of many conservatives in our country. That’s just a fact that you’re going to have to accept. Let me see if I can explain my NeverTrump decision that may make a bit of sense to you….not that you’re agree, but maybe understand. In my view, both Trump and Clinton will be a disaster for our country. I will not in good conscience vote for either of these two people. But I know America is greater than we perceive it to be now. We will survive a presidency by either of these two, will learn our lessons and become stronger for it. Not all of us, but the patriots (many of who now support Trump). I would rather spend the next four years fighting against the progressive left, who I’d never vote for under any circumstances, than having to defend the disaster of a Donald Trump presidency for four long, agonizing years. This man is just not worthy of becoming our president, and that bar isn’t very high as it is. Again, I am not going to argue with friends like you for the next four months, but I will point out some of Trump’s insanity when I see fit to do so. Happy Father’s Day friend!
