I have no clue what you are talking about when you say a “Fear-based position.” Nothing I said comes from a place of fear. It comes from a place of common sense, market based solutions. You assume that market needs is a statement that correlates with the unemployment rate. It does not. For example. The United States may have a lack of qualified health care professionals whether we have a low or high unemployment rate. So in the event that this country isn’t turning out the number of Doctors typically needed, then we should absolutely encourage highly educated people to come here and feel those needs. And you can apply that to any occupation.
What I do disagree with though is allowing in mass a large amount of low skilled poorly educated people who don’t have specialty skills that will allow them to achieve success. The same low skilled poorly educated people who eventually end up on food stamps and government programs. The same low skilled poorly educated people who put far less into the system, but get far more out of it.
I don’t know what you think America was supposed to be. In a time when there were 13 colonies and only a few million people, but the government wished to expand the US’s territories further west, of course we needed immigrants here to settle the land. But that was because we had a need for people.
In all this “fear based” talk you don’t support, you’ve neglected to state what you think the answer is? To me its coming off as an open boreder

This means nothing. You all just wait till those millions of democrats cross the isle and vote Trump. You’ll be shocked because Trump will Turn Pennsylvania and New York red. Oh you of little faith. We were promised a wall and that Mexico would pay for. And we were told that millions of democrats would become republican voters because Trump had a message that ressinated. We don’t need Texas or North Carolina. This is going as planned. Huge victory coming Nov 8th. We will win so much we will be sick of winning. Believe me, this will be Big leauge. (Sarc off)
Thanks Trumpbots. You wanted Trump and gave us Hillary.

Well as far as restricting visas are concerned. I fully support that. The number of visa’s we issue should be correlated by the need for workers. As we have to many American’s who can’t find work, we should not be bringing workers in. As for the ones who are here already, its simple. To the illegals who are here and have assimilated into American culter, then a permanent residency without citizenship is fine with me. To the illegals who have been here for years but have not made an effort to learn English, they should go. Personally I would love to see government programs cut to 90% of Americans who have them, but we should absolutely not be offering any of these programs to illegals. And we should absolutely restrict the right to work only to those who are here legally from this point forward. We should also call for a Constitutional Convention where the proposal is made that states that a child born to illegal immigrants is not an American citizen.
between a wall, e-verify work programs, the fact that a child born of illegals will not be legal itself, and the elimination of government handouts to illegals, and this problem of illegals would be fixed. And for those who have worked, and assimilated, and learned English in pursuit of an American dream, then we can offer them residency.
October 24, 2016 at 1:24am
And yet again you prove my point. Rather than offer something in regards to the conversation at hand, you act like an emotional 12 year old and start with an attack.
Speaking of commies and democrats, you sound as though you know there tactics very well. Speaking of letting the commies have the country. Did you think about that before or after nominating someone who was by all standards unelectable. Since it seems you’ve already handed this election and country over to Hillary Clinton, I defer to your expertise on the subject. GREAT JOB 1971. Aside from having a lot to offer in terms of intelligent conversation, you also have a clear passion for distorted truths.
Cause of Death- Trump Supporters like 1971Hemicuda
 October 23, 2016 at 7:51pm
Thats a better way of saying what I was trying to say. But when I’m tired and typing, it comes across as one big run on blahhhhhh. Again, I’m not a Trump supporter, but I will give him credit on this. He has addressed the need for all you mentioned.
But the other point I was attempting to make was, I wonder what the poll question was that was asked to the residents of Arizona. If the question was phrased in a way that the wall would stop all illegal immigration, then the answer would obviously be no. The wall is smaller part of a great shift in American policy that must work in conjunction with other parts, like e-verify and so on.
October 23, 2016 at 7:40pm
Had you done a little research of your own, you could have clicked my name and read a few of my recent posts where I praised Trump. But you are far to lazy and think its much easier to assume I’ve never actually seen Trump speak.
Don’t worry, I’ll save you the time. I gave much credit to Trump for the last two debate performances. I said he sounded conservative and sounded as though he understood the Constitution. I said he beat the hell out of Clinton, and gave him his due on several fronts. I then even said that he has opened the door to having my support. But i also mentioned that Trump raises a lot of questions because his values and beliefs have only become conservative in the past year. And if you actually read his books and looked into the mans history, then you would see that. But you are a Trump supporter, you’ll make excuses for anything he does. Will he deport them all, or just some. Will mexico pay for the wall, or will we. And what happens when we actually have to get legislation passed. I wonder if it will even happen and if he even wants it to happen.
From where I’m sitting, the most dangerous cesspool in America that is desperate need of draining and cleaning is the one inside your head.
The moment I start thinking that I should support Trump, I’m reminded of why I shouldn’t because I end up having a conversation with a mindless idiot Trump supporter like you, that is in love with authoritarianism.
Just remember, if Hillary wins, its because you let it
October 23, 2016 at 7:33pm
Now, I understand that you believe that because someone was elected to office BT (Before Trump in Trump supporters Time) then they are automatically considered evil. So in accordance with your views, everyone currently in office BT is a horrible person. I guess Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and a few others have been actively supporting the Obama Agenda in your mind. News flash you moron. Mike Lee, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz and a few other constitutionalist can only do so much when so many members of their own party lay down to the will of Obama. Does that mean even those three are perfect candidates? No. As far as I am concerned, the only person I agree with 100% of the time is Me. But Paul, Lee, and Cruz didn’t get changed by Washington. That is why DC hates them. So spare me this Cruz and Paul are establishment republicans.
Now, I also noticed that you made an excuse as to why Trump donated to democrats and liberal republicans. Ummm, I’m not stupid. I know why he did it. I understand the idea of donating to both parties so that either way Trump comes out a winner. But you neglected to answer my question. So I will ask it again. Is putting business before Patriotism exonerate someone of all wrong? Did Trump fund the very democrats whose polices have destroyed this nation? Yes. Did Trump make loads of money while the rest of us suffered under these politicians he funded? Yes. And somehow you think that is okay.
October 23, 2016 at 7:25pm
As to me being honest and admitting that I’ve not listened to his speeches, the best I can give you is this. You are an idiot. When the republican hopefuls got into the race, I very much kept an open mind. There were 3 candidates who I already knew I would not support. (They were Bush, Graham, And Pataki.) Very early on I liked what I heard from Donald. However, once I compared Donald the candidate to Donald history, I realized that things didn’t match up. Did I listen to his speeches. Big Time I did. Believe me, I did. (Just quoting him.) I listened to his speeches the same way I listened to Ted Cruz explain on an irritatingly regular basis that his father had 100 dollars in his undies when he came here.
What makes it so hard to even want to support the Republican nominee is how liberal even his supporters come across. Look at your comment to me. Just like a liberal would do, you assume you know me better than I know me. And you make stuff up as you go along. For the record, I don’t care for Trump the man, but the presidency isn’t a popularity contest. The videos, the moronic statements, did nothing to influence my lack of support for him. My lack of support for him was completely dictated by the fact that up until last summer he held very few conservative values. Has Trump said many times in 30 years that the American worker is getting the short end of the stick, and the government sucks? Yes, but that isn’t a policy view. That is an empty platitude.
October 23, 2016 at 7:17pm
You are the personification of what is wrong with this country. I have no idea what your talking about in regards to me searching for rumors to back up my beliefs. And your preoccupation with beck is starting to get old. I very rarely listen to Glenn Beck. Why? Because I’m at work. The only time I hear from Glenn is when he has a clip of something he said on this website. Furthermore, It didn’t take Glenn Beck for me to decide I was against Trump. I made that choice on my own. How did I come to that conclusion? I compared his speeches with past speeches and writings. Is his current view on Obamacare the same as it was 5 years ago? No. Is his stance on immigration the same as it was 5 years ago? No. did he think the Obamacare mandate was a great idea? Yes. When I compare his speeches to 30 plus years of published statements, they do not match up. Now, had he been a liberal 25 years ago and changed, I could understand that. The problem is, far to many of his conservative stances are even new to him as of last year. I question whether his beliefs are genuine. One of the few stances I have researched that he has managed to maintain a certain level of consistency on for more than 5 years is abortion. I will give him credit in that for at least 10 years he has been solidly pro life, and I believe that he is.
 October 23, 2016 at 7:02pm
I am not a fan of Trump, but I believe he has also addressed the fact that many illegals overstay their visa’s as well. In fairness, I would like to hear the actual question asked. Would the wall stop all illegal immigrants? Well of course the answer is no. Would the wall help stop illegals who cross the boarder? Yes. But again, I believe it has already been addressed that millions overstay their visa’s. The wall itself will not stop all illegal immigration, and I don’t know that anyone except the most hardcore of moronic trump supporters actually thought that. However, a wall in conjunction with an e-verify system, as well as the elimination of food stamps and other freebies for illegals would actually halt illegal immigration.
I do believe Trump has addressed all of these points: 1) Build a wall; 2) E-verify; 3) go after visa overstays: 4) go after employers and fix the entire immigration system.
So what exactly has Trump proposed to stop people from overstaying visas (which by some, accounts for 50% of the illegal immigration)?
The only thing i have heard from Trump is that he is going to severely restrict the number of visas….Basically shut down all movement across the border and isolate ourselves.
You let the demmocommies have it.
And you call Trump supporters moronic.
 October 23, 2016 at 1:56am
“its cute you think they are helping Trump… instead of hurting Hillary you know there is a difference”
AJ, then explain how my voting third party is support for Hillary? I know we are splitting hairs here trying to define the words IS. But I think its Cute how wikileaks is only hurting Hillary and not helping Trump, but my vote for a third party is helping Hillary.
Every time I think to myself I should vote for Trump, all I have to do is talk to a Trump supporter and It becomes clear that conservative consitutionalists are outnumbered by idiots in this country.
United States of America
Cause of Death- Trump supporters Like AJ.
 October 23, 2016 at 1:46am
Lunacy. You are advocating Lunacy usfreeman.
You will find no disagreement that DC is a problem. But lets make no mistake about it. The reason we suffer career politicians is because the idiocy of voters who keep electing them. Its like the nation is on fire. And while you think you are doing some good, all you are advocating for is dousing the flames with water hoses hooked up to gas tanks. Your desperation and anger has led you to a place where it is more important to get even than to be rational. There were 17 candidates running for office, but you never once took a serious look at any of them other than Trump. Everyone on the right believes this country is headed in the wrong direction. But I am more and more certain that regardless of what Trump does, you will just assume it is of the right direction because he is Trump and you adore him. You don’t stand for anything other than Trump the man. His positions can’t be what draw you to him because his positions have changed over and over again.
These passionate beliefs you speak of, is it his desire for universal healthcare or private healthcare. Is it his belief that Mitt Romney was to hard on illegals or is it his now saying he wants to deport them all.
And lets not forget. If Donald Trump honestly thought America was headed in the wrong direction, then why did he give money to Hillary, Chuck Shumar, and a host of other democrats. Or is being a businessman more important than being a patriot?
 October 22, 2016 at 11:29pm
Come one. Did anyone actually ever think Mexico was going to pay for the wall?
Well, I’m sure Trumpbots did.
But remember folks. Trump is a guy who can change his mind any time he wants. And he can shoot someone in the middle of 5th ave. in broad day light. And grab a married woman by the p—y and not lose 1 supporter.
Nobody more than me wishes Trump was an actual conservative republican. I really do, he is the republican nominee. But the man has spent a lifetime as a businessman at the expense of being a patriot. So long as he was making money, its okay he supported Democrats, Right? And wild claim after wild claim he keeps reversing course.
Do I support a wall? Yes. Was I ever under any dissolution that anyone but us would have to pay for it? No.
Is this yet another illustration of how Donald Trump is completely full of $–T? Yes. Will I be the slightest bit surprised that after 4 years it isn’t build? No. Will Trump bots make excuses for him? YES
Okay let's just elect ANOTHER politician, who lives his ENTIRE working years living, drinking and breathing and wallowing in the DC cesspool.....that'll fix things. WE HAVE TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.
As Einstein says repeating the same experiment and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. Trump has no need of this job other than a passionate belief that the country is headed in the wrong direction and he believes passionately that he has solutions. No other candidate has the track record of accomplishments he has ......ABSOLUTELY NONE. Honestly Kermit the frog could be the Rebpublican candidate and I would absolutely support him against the Hildebeast.
WhereDidMyCountryGo, I concur with your assessment. No one could confuse me with a Trumpbot, but I do believe Mexico will eventually pay for the wall IF Trump wins, and IF he gets around to building said wall. I'm like Rush, I live in Realville, and Should we as a country decide to push Mexico, they will pay. They certainly need us more than we need them, and they rely heavily on the incomes made here and sent there, plus, we do send them aid. All of those things could stop and it would be devastating to Mexico and a mere blip here. Let me just state unequivocally, Trump sucks!
 October 22, 2016 at 11:10pm
This country will fall regardless of who wins. We can sit here and blame Obama. We can sit here and Blame Bush. We can sit here and Blame Hillary. At the end of the day, we get the government we deserve.
The day we sacrificed our principles is the day we lost. Our founders were very explicit in their warnings. And this goes back decades. The conservatives and Constitutionalists are the only people making the case that we are a nation of laws that all citizens, public and private must live by.
But we have ignored the call for righteous men and women to lead this country. The vast majority of Republicans are moved by anger, or celebrity, or a need for power. (elected officials and voters alike.)
The constant claim that is made that Not voting for Trump makes me the owner of Hillary’s impending disaster, is laughable at best. Conservatives warned from the start. NEVER TRUMP. And yet he was rammed down our throats anyway.
Trumps last two debate performances were amazing. He took strong principled stances that sounded as though his concern was to advance the cause of liberty. Here is my problem. I have 69 years worth of evidence that says Donald Trump isn’t who he is claiming he is. Trump supporters have 1 years worth of speeches that they rely on as the foundation of support. The man only became conservative last year, and only when he needed to appeal to get our votes. Do I believe he is a constitutionalist? NOT AT ALL. And if he wins, who owns the Trump disaster?
 October 22, 2016 at 11:00pm
This election illustrates perfectly how fractured the GOP is. There are three distinct groups within the Republican party.
The GOP establishment. This consists of life long politicians and the majority of the leadership that has done the least amount possible in thwarting Obama’s Agenda. Names such as McCain, McConnel, Graham. They are the past of least resistance for Democrats. And morons within our party keep nominating and electing them.
Then we have Trump supporters. These are angry people who have bitten their nose to spite their face. So angry at authoritarian politicians like Obama, they have embraced an authoritarian of their own. In every scenario imaginable, they have contradicted themselves. Was Bill Clinton a Rapist? Yes. So what do we do? Nominate our own sexual deviant. They care more about getting even than they do advancing the cause of Liberty. And if you don’t support their nominee, then you are apparently the problem. (Their tactics are very much Democrat ones.)
Then you have Conservatives and Constitutionalists. This is where I fall. These are people who care less about personality and more about principle. Take Cruz out of the equation. There were still 5 or 6 potential nominees that would have been better than Trump. To see Trump supporters go after These people, who have fought Obama, tells me all I need to know about Trump and his supporters.
 October 22, 2016 at 10:47pm
You can make all the deals you want with democrats. As a rule, they never stick to their word. And this brings me back to my original point. You talk about (globalist types) crossing their own “red lines.” Trump for millions on the right was a Red Line. It was clearly stated from the start. You, Hannity, and any other Trump supporter can quote me all the unwritten rules that dictate that I’m required to support the republican party nominee. Maybe you misunderstood what we said, Never Trump means Never Trump. And we refused to cross that “red line.” And despite all the warnings, Trump supporters forced him down our throats like Obama did healthcare. I’m a conservative and a constitutionalist before I am a republican. And you should have thought about that before Trump was nominated. As to you supporting Romney before you supported McCain. I thank you for proving my point. In both cases you decided to fight democrat policies with progressive Republicans. How well did that work out for you? So clearly this isn’t the first time you’ve made this mistake. Repeating the same mistake over and over is the definition of insanity. What kind of genius combats Obamacare with the maker of RomneyCare? Red, you have answered that question.
At the end of the day, I have not entirely closed the door on voting for Trump, but every time I talk to a Trump supporter, it illustrates why I shouldn’t. The lack of intelligence and love for authoritarianism is mind boggling.
 October 22, 2016 at 9:11pm
Kung Pow Hannity is coming unhinged. If Hannity needed Wikileaks to be exposed to how corrupt the government is, then there isn’t a thing that can be said in his defense. Has Wikileaks provided any new information that we didn’t already know? No. We already knew Hillary was as corrupt as they come. . Did we already know Hillary was deeply involved in pay-to-play scandals? Yes. Did we already know that Hillary exposed our national security secrets to other nations? Yes.
The entire point of being excited about Wikileaks is that it vindicated what we already knew, and provided hard proof to doubters about what we already knew. But lets not fool ourselves for a minute. Wikileaks aren’t a group of right wing freedom lovers desperate to expose the world to Liberty. They will leak anything on anyone anytime, including Trump if he is in office. But I’m sure Sean will go back to considering them America’s enemy right?
As to anyone owning anything. Long before Trump was nominated, a vast group of people said never Trump. They warned and begged. Trump was shoved down their throats like Obamacare was. And you expect what exactly? People are just supposed to fall in line and back whoever you tell us to. I say that as someone who is closer to voting for Trump than I was a month ago, but I have no sympathy for his supporters if he loses. You were warned, long ago this could happen.
We have abandon our principles and are embracing authoritarianism. That is you on you Gen Tso Hannity.
As a rule, the Party coalesces around the last man (or woman) standing. McCain was not my first pick -- Romney was. I supported them both equally.
I don't recall but I heard recently that 4 million Non-Mormon Christians sat out in 2012 -- and would have put Mitt in office had they voted.
Anyway, a perplexing time for all.
There are many reasons I would not vote for Mrs. Clinton; number 1 is my default position of requiring "full term" over "partial birth." The Supreme Court comes to mind, as does, 2A.
It's a very interesting time where some (globalist types) are crossing their own "red lines" of ethics (morality?) vs American preservasionist types.
I wonder between Right and Left, now that the Right is gaining heretofor unheard of political traction, if there is a deal to be struck, i.e., "you don't touch this and we won't touch that?"
I would like an apology for the ad hominem.
 October 22, 2016 at 8:51pm
If you didn’t already know that there was audio of Trump being Trump back during the primary, then there is nothing that can be said to help you. The media has played the same game for decades, and you act like its a huge surprise. As much as I hate to say it, there is still 17 days left till the election. I don’t know what could be released, but we know they are holding back something for the finale days. Nobody will be surprised at this media tactic except you. Which is sad because election after election they do the same thing.
As to Sean Hannity’s praise for wiki leaks. Are they doing us a service right now by releasing everything we already knew anyway about Hillary? Yes. But as I said, are we at all the least bit surprised that Clinton is as corrupt as they come? No. Well, it appears that that you are surprised. But let’s not forget all the damaging information they released the turned the tide of America support for the War in Iraq. Has Wiki leaks exposed how corrupt our government really is? No, because we already know. The hole point of being excited about wiki leaks was the hope that anything to the left of moderate would understand what this government is all about, because we already knew. And guess what, Hannity himself has said so over the past 10 years. As to anyone owning Hillary’s mess if she is elected. Way back, long before he was nominated, people said never Trump. He was shoved down our throats like Obamacare. Yet still nominated. We warned you.
 October 20, 2016 at 11:28pm
Not a Trump supporter here, but I have no problem with anything he said. However, this is an area where he gets himself in trouble. (And I say the word trouble loosely) Like it or Not, The Alfred Smith Dinner, The White House Correspondence dinners and other kiss ass events that Trump will have to sit through are events that he will have to learn to take with more of a light heart. Like it or not, Trump can be very thin skinned and will need to learn how to take punches. If he wins the election, he will have to learn the hard way what its like to have mass media exposure that will be predominantly negative. And he hasn’t seen anything yet. So when he is at events like this, even though I think they are stupid and beneath the office of the president, he needs to do a better job of lightening up. Timing is everything, and had he delivered these jokes at a rally the next day (And better rehearsed where he wasn’t staring at his cards) they would have killed. Dude has to learn how to take a punch and better timing, and when to lighten up if he is going to make it the next four years.
But at the end of the day do I really care about what a bunch of New York Liberals are crying about at the Socialist Club of Alfred Smith? NO.
Since DJT is so thin-skinned (and I agree), then the press should be able to embrace him as being very much like one of their idols - BHO, also very thin-skinned.
 October 20, 2016 at 2:22pm
Rob, I understand what your saying. You don’t have to convince me that Hillary is an evil b–h, and will be a traitorous president. There aren’t many republicans that don’t already know that. The reality is, the republican party is fractured into three sections. Trump supporters, traditional conservatives, and establishment republicans. There isn’t one person regardless of which clique he belongs in that doesn’t already know that Hillary Clinton is awful.
The problem is, we don’t entirely know who Donald Trump is. By that I mean, is he the lifelong business man who put profit before patriotism by funding democrats whose policies have wrecked this country. Is it the man who hated guns and at one time supported Roe V. Wade. Is it the man who supported universal healthcare and loved the mandate?
Or was it the guy last night who did a pretty damn good job of emphasizing the need for conservative government.
While I do give Donald Trump Credit for doing a wonderful job last night, and he opened the door to me possibly voting for him, I still have concerns. So rather than tell me how Hillary still sucks, explain to me how Donald Trump doesn’t suck. Is this conservative attitude a legitimate change in him, or is it window dressing to earn republican votes? The truth is, if Donald is a liberal as he has acted for most of his life, then he can do as much damage as a Clinton.
So this isn’t about our mutual distrust for Clinton, this is about who Trump is.
