I stood in line today for 3.5 hours to vote (I am one of the crazies who likes to vote in person). I am likely the only person who DID NOT vote for Mr. Trump in the primary after standing in the three mile line I was in (and I am just kidding….most people around me said they were voting for Cruz) but I was really interested in what folks were saying about their opinions and why they want to vote for Trump. I stood in front of three Dems who were there to vote for Trump. One of these three (they were in a group that came together) told me it was because he could not vote in good stead for Hillary, he is not a socialist or radical and that meant no Bernie, so he decided to try Trump. He also said he had not voted in 2012. He changed to the Republican party for this election. The poll numbers reflect that shift. No Independents voted. Not to mention that bothersome little man from Ohio causing havoc.
The Trump hysteria reminds me of the Obama hysteria. I have no idea whether Mr. Trump can beat murderous Hillary Clinton, but if he does not win and Hillary wins can we please learn our lesson, please?
I will never understand why Hillary still has voters. I earnestly wonder what kind of person votes for her? Are they in denial, ignorant of right and wrong? What is it? I know perfectly nice people on the left that keep voting for her and they won’t hear of anything else. It creeps me out.
However, congrats to Trump voters….hope you are ready. It’s on you-big time.
Trump won’t win. Various polls have Hillary/Bernie decimating him. I’m pretty much impartial to all the candidates on both parties other than phony Tedward.

He is a great deal maker…different than a President. I say to you, think about that and then ask yourself why!? Seriously….we need someone who really can thread the needle and KNOWS how the U.S. should run. If that happens the free market will take care of itself WHICH is the core of free market thinking.
 February 28, 2016 at 7:02pm
I have restricted myself this election round to rare comment as I want to remain calm and keep my head on and my powder dry until I need it. However, here I am today after this insane week.
Alll I can say…is my blood runs cold when I see the utter lack of knowledge of the way the U.S. should be running. Alas it has long been squandered. Even colder runs the blood when I have a distinct memory of the Obama craze when I watch the Trump followers. Bernie Sanders too. Hillary Clinton has BIG and I BIG money behind her so I get that. Trump does too…but it comes from a shady place that no one speaks of. And honestly, my candidate Ted Cruz has wealthy backers too, though not the same size or type. But I know the backers of TC are making a good investment.
I just wish Ted could answer the crap he is being given for the mistakes his campaign made. Chris Wallace put forth that topic again today and I think Ted should have answered differently…but there is only so much a guy can take when FOX News and just about every other outlet discounts you. Tells me he is the one, frankly…. the one we need to elect.
And as far as the GOP wringing their hands over Trump, yeah right. What a lie.
I will say this Trump makes it entertaining and wild. But…that not a President does make.
You hit the nail on the head. The Establishment is just fine with “duh Donald” in…. he makes great deals after all. The media is really doing a number on us this time. If these really “angry” voters would settle down for five minutes, they’d see how their anger is being used against them. It’s a case of reverse-reverse psychology. But these are people that have become scholars from watching Southpark and reality tv.

I have not commented for a long time. But this definitely calls me to comment. God rest and keep Judge Scalia. We will never know the truth unless we find it ourselves why he passed, so make up your mind to research it yourself and it might take awhile. With that said, the truth is, we now have another major problem. Truly we are being tested. I am speechless and sad, again. But I know, tomorrow we will take heart again and battle on. This country CAN not go to the far left again. We will not sustain it as well I know you all here know it. God I beg you show mercy for our mistakes. Be strong all, it is about to get weirder.

Wow, ya think?
Did anyone know that between 1920 to 1950 the U.S. brought the hammer down on the Southern border? Why? we had to assimilate who was here and we had to let national income catch up to the number of new bodies we took in after World War I and World War II. THEN there were additional laws between 1942 and 1962 because of the immigration from the European side, again, same reason.
Europe just went feral because they are largely socialist in their form of governing. So they kept raising taxes and putting out programs. Look, when we decide to have or not have kids, there IS a financial consideration. So why in heavens name would we as a country not also look at that. Does anyone care about common sense?
There is a business reason for limiting this from everywhere. It goes to the heart of our beef. WE CAN’T PAY FOR EVERYONE. Americans should come first. Sorry.
And again, regarding this current issue (I hope Flipper does not find me here, he calls me crazy, laughing out loud I am), NO to Syrians. Just no. We have seen it with our own eyes. Again, figure out who is ringing your doorbell in the middle of the night before you make any move to open the door. We have learned it from childhood, at least I did.
 November 20, 2015 at 1:09am
Over on another story a reply to my comment indicated I was mental…but what I am about to say does beg an answer and is not all that crazy.
1. Why do people like this CNN gal not connect that our government LET the Syrian people get slaughtered and then suddenly declare we need to start shipping anybody who is still alive over here, WHILE, they tell us wars should be waged and settled between the countries OVER THERE. Is this not odd?
November 20, 2015 at 12:56am
Cat! I did not see this until I posted a reply to Flipper. Thanks for this. Where I am from we have had LOTS of border crossings and quite a few have the confirmed trappings of ME radicals. I caught this late yesterday evening on the Drudge and my heart sank again. The good thing is, suddenly the border crossings of this type might make national news.
November 20, 2015 at 12:50am
Flipper, I can’t tell if you are sarcastically parroting what the “ban the guns and fling open the borders” supporters might say to me or you are indeed serious about my mental state and you are one of the above mentioned, but I live in a border state, for years we have had reports of captures or “the ones that got away”. Obama has already moved “refugees” here. You just have to follow closely. If you are serious about my opinion (and my mental state I guess) then you are exactly where Europe has been about this whole issue and now from witness accounts we see they are in shock. I prefer understanding the possible realities (which have occurred here) and take care of my own. And if you think that is insane, that is absolutely your right to think that. And if you are serious, you sound like a Nazi…if you can understand what a Nazi is and what they did to dissenters. Good luck to you, and I mean it, because if you are serious in your statement, you are going to need a lot of luck.
 November 19, 2015 at 3:36am
AGAIN, let me say. This is all on purpose. We can’t trust any of them. And I am really sorry but we already have thousands of radicals here…they are just waiting for the call. So I am at the point of skipping the theater and preparing to defend my family. We are it folks…sorry to sound so cranky and negative but seriously. Let me ask you Speaker Ryan, how do you handle teaching your children about the doorbell ringing in the middle of the night? Do you advise them to fling the door open without figuring out who is there? I highly doubt it.
With white and black liberals running America and the illegal aliens, why worry about a few thousand terrorists.
I officially proclaim you insane, probably driven that way by hate and fear. Please turn any firearms you posess over to the authorities and commit yourself into a mental health facility.
 November 16, 2015 at 11:18pm
I watched Shep Smith say this today and I was again aggravated. CAN WE NOT TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RIGHT AND WRONG SHEP. It’s a rabbit hole folks, we are in a rabbit hole.
November 16, 2015 at 1:19pm
So here we are again…our President is under the spell of an agenda-not even worrying about how he sounds or what his actions are…our Congress just remains silent like they don’t exist…I feel like the military and the Pentagon are silent…the only conclusion we can have is the bizarre nature of events is on purpose. I have sat quietly watching Paris (and everything else), and if you do that, and if you have paid attention to even the obscure, it’s pretty easy to join the ends of news reports and the movements of the Western world as it relates to the feral tribes in the middle east, and everything else really.
The horrible and bizarre events are on purpose and I resolved after 2012 to just keep preparing the best I can for my family and be ready the best we can. If we all understand there is no intention to stop all of this we will govern our decisions in a better way. I expect NOTHING in the way of protection, nothing. I expect nothing in the way of protection of our individual economic opportunities in this country. Seriously.
The French people all probably knew too what they were heading for but what can they do? Look at how poorly we are represented-they have a socialist leader too. So here we all are yelling and screaming and stating the obvious and literally we have millions of canaries in a coal mine. I also love the irony of the Libs in this country being all for the French defending themselves with whatever it takes…ha. They hated Bush for it.
 November 15, 2015 at 3:39am
Good Lord Hillary, wake up. You have impugned yourself. Your integrity? Oh brother.
 November 12, 2015 at 8:39pm
This drives me crazy. Unless an illegal person working here gets and uses an ITIN number…(they usually don’t fess up)-THEY ARE NOT PAYING FEDERAL OR PAYROLL taxes.
So to repeat… do illegals pay FEDERAL taxes or any other taxes BESIDES sales tax or taxes on consumption and goods…NOT UNLESS THEY REGISTER AND GET A ITIN. Yes, some of them do if they profess their presence. Of course they can apply for a social security number or steal one of ours (yes, it has happened to me), but that is just as big of a risk as fessing up and getting a ITIN.
Here’s another fact that is crazy! I have not looked for a long time, but back in 2009 the government was getting THOUSANDS of applications for ITINs from Mexico to be SENT BACK TO MEXICO! So don’t tell me they are not crossing back and forth.
So here’s the thing….I firmly believe millions of them DO NOT pay FEDERAL OR PAYROLL taxes. I think some have told the truth and are paying taxes. I looked, most of the States have places on their websites information about the ITIN registration and the information is directly talking to illegal people. So they know that they are there.
Trump is right and wish he and Cruz and Paul would explain this to people.
November 9, 2015 at 6:41pm
I don’t know the intimate facts. But as an observer it looks like a certain group is bent on further isolating themselves. All this over a LOOSING football team made of a bunch of entitled humans bent on racially isolating themselves. So let them go ahead and just see the Liberian debacle this will be in about 10 years. So sad. But I know others of the same group do not agree with this and it paints a very bad light on this particular group as a whole in the U.S. God help us and keep us. I think the chancellor did the right thing though. It took courage and humility and a submission of ego and anger. For that he did well. I want to say none of us know except by allegations if the chancellor really was that bad….conversely all we see is what we see on the news. But this is my observer opinion.

You know Ben Carson is being cast as “unrealistic” on his tax strategy. The reason is that he plans A LOT of cuts that shrink government. Now we understand the attacks on his plan.
We have to remember this when the interest rates go up…coming soon…the U.S. won’t even be able to make the payments on the debt interest. Expect our bank accounts to be taken.
He would have to make serious cuts with his plan, and I thought he kind of alluded to it. But Progressives think once you create a program, it's supposed to last forever, and that's what Carson was talking about. We don't need half of the agencies and programs we have right now.
That's why that middly mouth panelists was trying to question his math. She was pretending she didn't understand it and that he doesn't know what he was talking about. If Carson wasn't so soft spoken, he would have shut her down right there.
 October 30, 2015 at 4:26am
I really wanted to feel like Rubio is a honest young man. But as I have observed him, I get this uneasy feeling. As I have watched longer, it seems he is wound so tight and I decided there is something wrong and I probably could not trust him at all. He is so good at articulating a vision but…something is wrong. You don’t really know who he is. Not too surprising the Bush campaign decided to pick at him first, he is the easiest pickings of the top five. They are waiting to poke the bears.
As far as Jeb Bush, ah, no…just no.
 October 24, 2015 at 3:13am
Remember those words if you are serious…she and Bill set us up for everything we have experienced the last 15 years. Bush came into office and the chaos from the middle east started right away-HE was handed a nightmare but he did not deal with anything but the middle east…and he made mistakes to boot BUT the big joke is if anyone would use their heads, I have not even ever heard this on the talk shows… Bush was elected in 2000, 9 months into his first administration, 9/11 occurred. The economy was AWFUL then. But Willy had made deals with China that took our jobs BUT we were able to extend credit, have cheap things, cheap gas for a few years….but somehow it was Bush’s fault (he could have leveled with us, but he did not so I am mad at Bush for that) NO, it was Clinton deals. So…if you don’t care about that, I guess Hillary is your gal and you just stay in your happy dark place.
 October 24, 2015 at 3:03am
Bret Hume and another contributor had something to say that was close to the truth. If you were looking for style, yep, she kept her cool (other than the smirks and flashing eyes) and she kept her voice even. But, for substance, she had nothing.
People say she is a good campaigner. I am sorry, I can not overlook that she is a gangster in a pant suit. I just can’t. The truth is they are all, both sides, too far down the river. They all might as well
wear pant suits like murderous Hillary, then we would all be super sure there is no difference. Then they can start laughing like her. When Biden folded I confirmed to myself they are going to let her out of it. Like I have said, she is one part of a cover up. I really believe the committee had to go through her to get to the gold. BUT, this will be spun as politics from the right blah, blah.
October 22, 2015 at 7:14pm
ALLLLLLLLLLLL I can say….is that the left in this country serving at the top are unspeakably corrupt. This is a total and total and total joke. Cudos to the representative on the committee from Indiana who JUST hit a home run but it will never be followed. Hillary Clinton and her party did not designate the mission as official BECAUSE THEY WERE MAKING MONEY FROM RUNNING GUNS and who know what else. Oh, I know, degrading the United States. HELLO? Helllo? Wake up America.
FYI, the black websites are out in force. As I have been over this issue. Lifelock keeps contacting me. Beware those of you who are active on the sites.
