@diehrd – Sitting back is part of the problem – Trump supporters think they can just sit back and have one man solve all their problems. In any case, any of the remaining candidates will swing this country further to the left, and you are partially to blame.

Wow – yep, you’re part of the problem, not to mention the way you articulate an argument is atrocious.

@milfirst – Actually, you just outlined the typical Trump supporter, but I must say your statement is a bit more articulate than those posted by many other Trump supporters on this site, leading me to believe there is still hope for you. To Trump, you are nothing more than a subject that, as I’ve said before, he would kick to the curb with a soiled shoe once you’ve served your purpose – please see this.
Many Trump supporters have voted out of anger – that is a very dangerous way to go. As you started to say – “Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering” (Yoda from “The Phantom Menace”). There is much hate within the Trump camp and from Trump himself. He hates women, he hates opposition, he hates you. He’s only in this for Trump…and maybe even his friend Hillary. And the left is loving this.
I don’t think our Founding Fathers anticipated a very narrow-minded group of people voting our country away, but they knew it was possible, and that is what is happening. As Ben Franklin told a woman upon her asking what kind of a government was shaped for us, he told her a Republic…if we could keep it.
Milfirst – open your mind. You’re being had, and you actually sound scared yourself. Of course times change…but that is no excuse for giving up our liberties.
None are so blind as those who will not see - I'm not afraid of Trump, nor was I afraid of Cruz. But I am afraid of the direction this country is going in (as are most sane Americans). Look at the rantings and ravings of those Cruz supporters whose only response to any intelligence debate is to insult and belittle (or downvote). You are right that some Trump supporters are angry. But so are Cruz supporters. Nothing in your post denies or disproves what I said regarding those #NeverTrump people who would rather insult and belittle than admit that they have been wrong this entire time. You have #NeverTrump supporters who are openly endorsing the likes of Pelosi and Ryan. Two people that a few short months ago were the antithesis of the conservative movement. So who is really afraid here and who is really holding to their "principles"? Cruz supporters repeat lie after lie about Trump concerning his policies, his past donations, his statements on just about everything and mistakenly believe that they can not only see the future but also KNOW for a fact the kind of person he his. And they do this while completely ignoring anything that looks or even has the appearance of being negative about Cruz. They are also automatically dismissive of any argument that runs counter to their already considerable bias even when proof of their lies is presented for everyone to see. Perhaps you should follow your own advice and open your own mind.

I see a sinkhole forming in front of the long black Trump Train…..

@jakartaman – Thank you for presenting to us Exhibit A.

Love Glenn and company, love Ted Cruz – but I’m no bot. My mind is still my own, and I don’t go agreeing with every single thing they say because I’m a fan of both. If anything, it is because of Glenn’s shows that I’m more careful about who I want in office – in other words, just because they’re Republican or call themselves conservative doesn’t mean they are what they say. No wall around our minds to shut out ideas.
Trump supporters on the other hand….

He actually seems quite nervous here.
 May 5, 2016 at 5:06pm
@Bageeria – No sympathy necessary – I suggest you look in the mirror and say those words to yourself, every single one. Trapped in the cage or on the train are those who couldn’t think about the consequences of voting on emotion and nothing more. At least my conscience will be clear.
 May 4, 2016 at 11:35pm
@swaltz1 – Wow, Trump’s “NY” attitude has rubbed off on you, hasn’t it? You sound just like him.
May 4, 2016 at 11:33pm
@READRIGHTTHERE – You don’t have to vote for an idiot to vote for your party – take a stand and do a write in!
May 4, 2016 at 11:32pm
@SouthWillNotRise – And you are one of Trump’s “useful idiot” subjects. Those of us who support Cruz saw the warnings well ahead of time, avoided voting simply out of revenge and anger, and knew we were standing up for someone instead of simply voting for the lesser of two evils. You and many other Trump supporters are no better than the Obama camp, resorting to immature commentary to silence us and to make yourselves look tough.
May 4, 2016 at 11:24pm
@DSMike – I’m sorry…he is just that. I truly wish he wasn’t, but he is. He and Hillary are two sides of the same coin.
May 4, 2016 at 11:22pm
@Culpeper – Best to stand up for what you know is right – you’re not alone! I’d rather do that, so I’ll be writing in Cruz. My conscience will be clear knowing I didn’t take a ride on the Long Black Trump Train that has a destination to nowhere.
 May 4, 2016 at 11:16pm
Forget it – cannot vote for Trump. Just because there is a convenient little (R) in front of his name doesn’t mean he’s the real thing. He’s a phony. This was one year where there happened to be a few principled candidates and we had the chance to vote FOR something instead of against something. Cruz happened to be the best one of this bunch, but boy did alleged Republicans mess up this time. Cruz will be my write-in vote, and I suspect many more out there will be doing the same.
I feel sorry for you - trapped in a cage of your own logic - you must be miserable.
I know I will be writing in Cruz's name
 May 4, 2016 at 11:11pm
Oh, what a tangled web we weave – now that Trump seems to be the nominee, the picture doesn’t look so pretty, does it? Didn’t think he’d get that far, did you?
 May 4, 2016 at 7:03pm
It was obvious for quite a while, sadly.
May 4, 2016 at 7:02pm
Kasich was a waste of skin in this election – nothing more than someone riding or hiding under someone else’s coattails while kissing their feet.
 May 4, 2016 at 7:01pm
@sledgehammer44 – Look in the mirror and say your words to yourself. Trump is an arrogant narcissistic adulterer – he loves POWER. Look at his attitude – you, sir (or madam), are nothing more than a subject to him – actually, more like a doormat that he would wipe a soiled shoe on before kicking you aside.

@clearthinkernow – 32 here – Heck, I remember being in kindergarten and knowing who George Bush and Michael Dukakis were lol! We used to learn history – not quite sure how much of it was the progressive version, but I actually don’t think it was very much in the ’90s (and that was in the NYC public school system). Additionally, I’m fortunate to have a family that believed learning history was important, so much so we sometimes visited historical sites while learning about them in school, to make that history come to life. I can’t say I know the Constitution in and out, but I know what it is and stand up for it. We’ve all grown up to be conservatives.
Your niece needs to broaden her mind a bit and stop being a robot (I hope you don’t mind my saying this) – I hope she comes around. Oh, and if she needs to learn a little about the Constitution, below is a link that might help her out – loved this for almost as long as I can remember:
