That was the single most honorable thing I’ve seen a liberal do in over a year. Way to go, Joe. That was the real story. If the libs were smart (yeah right) they would have run Biden instead of Hillary. He’s ditzy but people don’t see him as being pure evil like Hillary is. He would have had a better chance. But then if the libs were smart they wouldn’t have ejected Joe Lieberman from the Party either.

Never saw him as evil…though he may be only half here, and thats half the time, his better half would have had more than half a chance than Hillary.

I really wish that the establishment Republicans would get their act together and run a true conservative candidate again. They’re still hung up on the Carl Rove tactic of running candidates “slightly” to the right of the hard-left Democrat candidate; a Democrat/Socialist-lite. The last time a true-conservative ran (much opposed by the Republican political elite of the time) it was Ronald Reagan…which turned out well from both an election and a governing standpoint. It seems that conservatism actually works, as something other than just an election-slogan, is one lesson the professional politicians just don’t want to learn.

You just can’t swallow that. Literally anyone would be better than Hillary. I don’t recognize your username so I don’t know how much you lean conservative. But from my standpoint I watched Trump in the primaries take down some big names like Jeb who were favored to win, but had made themselves unelectable. Anyone but Jeb! And then I kept hearing these “experts” say how Trump should step aside for one of the “real conservatives” in the group, but then why didn’t any of these other guys have the guts to say the obvious things Trump said? Trump wasn’t my first choice, but by the end he became my only choice. Then also it became impossible to ignore the avalanche of venomous machine gun fire aimed at him from every direction. If the establishment hates and fears him that much, then he MUST be the right choice. But then no matter how vicious their attacks became, he wouldn’t back down, cower, or stop. He was relentless. Why aren’t there any other “real conservatives” like this? They always seem to fumble the ball on the one yard line, shrug their shoulders, say they tried, and walk off the field. Meanwhile, Hillary’s message seemed to be, “Vote for me or I’ll get even with you.” She reeked of pure evil. Not normal regular evil like Osama bin Laden. Deep satanic stuff. Thank you for not choosing pure evil.

In the recent head-to-head matchup between Hillary and Donald–it was no contest for me. Not only was a reasonable person unable to rely on Hillary’s word…on ANY topic, I am in full disagreement with Clinton’s espoused core-principles and her seemingly absolute reliance on “more government” being the solution to every problem. I disagree with Trump on MANY issues–particularly social issues. However; he seems to take a position, agreeable with my own beliefs, on big government, regulations, & taxes. I’m 50/50 with Trumps foreign policy. However; I agree that US trade deals should not subordinate US economic interests–which has been the seeming primary position with State since the Bush ’41 administration. I am not an isolationist–there are some instances where “send in the Marines” is the right answer to depots and human-slaughter by tyrants. The intended put of my original missive was that: 1) Trump was far from my ideal candidate–but a clear choice over Clinton; 2) The words conservative and establishment-Republicans are mutually-exclusive terms…there may be conservative Republicans but they aren’t professional/career politicians & pundits living in Washington; 3) The last articulate conservative to run for president was Ronald Reagan; 4) Conservative politics, when articulated to the public, is a clear choice over socialism as it is being offered up by both Democrats & Republicans in Congress.

The country is in desperate shape after years of ruination. b. Trump was one of the few to point this out plainly. c. He made many bold promises while campaigning. d. I expect him to strive valiantly toward the goal of fulfilling those promises. He’s not a “We tried” kind of guy. He goes all-in. e. I want some solid results. The time for excuses is long past. There is no more “Wait for next election”. Results now. f. I know it’s a fight, but if he can make good on at least 50% of his bold promises, he’s likely to get re-elected in a landslide. g. If he goes establishment and weasels out of it, this could be the death of the GOP. We will need to make something new.

Trump was one of the few to point this out plainly.] And unlike many of the other GOP candidates OR any of the liberals, he was also willing to NAME OUR ENEMY and name them without any fear of being labeled an islamophobe..

The problem with American intelligence–and every OTHER agency in the US government right now is that Obama’s corrupt, DIRTY, DISHONEST fingerprints are ALL OVER ALL OF THEM. He has corrupted every SINGLE agency of our government with Muslim Brotherhood and obedient left-wing radical minions, and PERVERTED those agencies to serve HIS destructive purposes, rather than their original purpose. Ergo, NOTHING that comes out of the “intelligence” agencies is reliable or can be believed–because a good deal of it is just more LIES concocted by Obama, which he then uses bogus “intelligence reports” to validate. The “Russian hacking” flap is a PRIME example! The “intelligence” report on this harps CONTINUALLY on how the Russians were hacking Democrats for the EXPRESS purpose of helping Trump get elected. Where is the proof? Did the Russians leave NOTES in hacked servers saying, “Nyah nyah–we just hacked your server to help Donald Trump win?” Of COURSE NOT. There is NO PROOF that the Russians did ANYTHING, much LESS “for Trump’s benefit”—except that Obama SAYS SO, then conveniently produces this half-***ed “report” to “prove” it. Trump will have his work cut out for him to make ANY positive changes, unless he roots out and REMOVES all of Obama’s minions from government agencies—because THEY will continue to sabotage and corrupt as long as they remain in place.

People were supposed to go to work for government because they wanted help improve the lives of their fellow Americans or because they felt compelled to give back at the lower pay and after they did, they went back to their real jobs. The Federal government also has was too many people working for it at higher levels that come out of Ivy League Schools and being centralized in the northeast they have many workers that are totally conservative blind. This does not bode well for administrations wanting to decrease government. Having Ivy League lawyers cause bloated laws and having north easterners predominate jobs in government causes bloat in government workers. Self perpetuating bureaucracy is produced when zero based budgeting is adding to it. We surely can come up with something not prone to these Democrat induced nightmares.

You have openly gay, transgender, and trans whatevers in the military, state department etc. Everyone else has been bullied into following all the PC bullstuff that these people are spewing and no one up high has the cajones to stand up and say enough. We need congress and not just President Trump to get a backbone and quit caving into these one worlder perverts.
