    Well you have another choice now. Romney ( looser) and, I can't remember how to spell his name, the governer of Ohio, oh yeah (looser) are going to run for a third party. How about that? Don't Trump look better now ? Looks like Hillary will be the next president.

    There are no quixotic rationals anyone and anyone means anyone, can manufacture that could alter the inescapable conclusion that failing to vote in this upcoming election is the equivalent of saying "I'm satisfied with the status quo".. Of course those who have convinced themselves that not voting or voting for a 3rd party candidate somehow equates to "principled voting" . But they aren't able to see that which is exactly why I chose the signature I use on this forum. Rather than choose the lesser of 2 evils; one evil being guaranteed and the other being fixed in angry and fearful imagination: Those individuals use all of their collective intelligence to conjure up a veneer of ignorance born of the unknown that is so profound it causes them to erect a barrier against reality that is so thick, so high, so deep and so massive that it permits them to exist in the illusion that the reality they're confronting is actually a fantasy. And the fantasy that they themselves have created is actually reality. I have never said such people are ignorant, or foolish or less patriotic, or less intelligent.. I know better than that. Most are patriotic Americans who are not unlike those with whom they find themselves at odds with.

    Now if that universal principle which is not of my own creation is interpreted as "crossing some arbitrary line" then so be it. I spent far too many hours during my professional career in the midst of life threatening riots. Riots where Federal Marshals were more concerned about the rights and safety of the rioters who were burning, looting and killing than the rights and safety of law enforcement officers who were sent to control the riots . Far too much time in those situations to now cause me to be intimidated or to place myself under a self imposed gag order. I personally clashed with a number of those Marshalls on more than one occasion and I will not sit meekly by now and be intimidated by threats of any sort. That passive behavior is at the very center of the crisis the United States is now confronted with and it's the genesis of this very blog. I love my country and I know which candidate will continue and even enhance Obama's policies. I know that because she has said she would. Examine what refusal to take a stand by average citizens in certain other countries has resulted in over the past 70 years. Then perhaps the views of others who feel and react like me won't appear quite so radically vitriolic. My intentions have never been to offend or malign anyone. Rather I've been symbolically trying to shake the shoulders of a man who believes himself to be mortally wounded when all he suffers from is battle fatigue.

    I also wish citizens were able to vote directly for Supreme Court Nominees. But no Magna cum Laude in Political Science is required to realize that "just ain't gonna happen". The next elected president will make that determination. The most liberal Justice ever is one Ruth Bader Ginsburg and if you like her making decisions that determine your very life, take a stab at which past president placed her there? Now take a stab at which current candidate running for president was married to the president who placed her there. Four or five Ginsburg clones coming up? Ok, don't vote and don't worry about it.

    It depends on who owns those? An argument over those things has caused many a poor boy his life.

It seems that few are the ones that are being rejected. The day of the PC insider is over.

    That reminds me of something my father(a Hillary supporter) said to me(a Trump supporter):

    Me: “They voted for Trump, the public wants him.”

    Father: “The people don’t know what they want.”


    It seems that on either side of the fence some will make the argument that the voters are incompetent because they don’t share the same views, I find it funny personally. I don’t say anything to him normally, because it always starts a debate. He is my father and I respect and love him, his political thoughts? Not so much! J

    Trump set a historical record for any Republican Candidate in votes received. The Republican and Democratic parties have spent millions to stop him. The Far Left Media and the American Socialist movement as well as many foreign governments such as Mexico attacks him. The American Revolution is growing regardless of these assaults.

    Yes, he is a talented and respected forum leader. His work in the California efforts to protect their declining gun rights is admirable.

    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    Not just protect. Bills are offered and lawsuits initiated to expand Californian's firearms rights. Most fail, but some succeed.
