Yet he's the only one that is semi-sane when it comes to foreign policy, everyone else wants to restart the Cold War with Russia and want to bog us down in another middle eastern war. They don't think Obama has gone far enough, these psychopaths want blood. It's nonsense that he doesn't have knowledge of the issues, he has spoken more in depth than probably any other candidate. Airhead Rubio hasn't said anything of substance his entire time in the US Senate.
semi-sane? are you trying to be funny? the guy wants to build a wall across the mexican border


Building the wall isn't even the craziest thing he wants to do. He wants to force Mexico to pay us for the wall, he wants to have a mass deportation of 11 million people, he wants to ban Muslims, he wants to make Bill Gates shut down the internet, and I am sure there are more things. Plus I think he does want to go to war in the Middle East since when he was talking about ISIS he said "we are going to bomb the s**t out of them" on live tv.

Versus what? Opening a superhighway for our country to expedite invasion of our country and to once for all destroy our QOL brought down to that of the third world? You don't have a viable candidate, Trump is the best candidate running that can win. The American Dream is dead and Trump is the only candidate that is offering solutions, PC garbage is suffocating this country and no one else has anything remotely resembling an pro-America immigration policy. The CoC and La Raza might want hordes of millions of illegal immigrants as well as their legal slaves to undercut the American worker.

A wall is a lot more realistic than this idea of the forever war or that we can give away everything for free, Bernie Sanders understands how to run this country about as well as Matthew Lesko probably less and he won't be able to do anything he'd want to do. All besides the point, the choice is Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton and that is an easy decision and if you think Hillary is going to win that contest I think you should probably start exploring a nice place to live in Canada. We spent 2 trillion dollars in Iraq, we have a 54 billion dollar trade deficit with Mexico so we can make them pay for it and their citizens that they have intentionally sent across our border pretty easily. It is time to finally confront Mexico and its corrupt politicians, these people have been taking advantage of us for years while they run their country into the ground.

Again, Trump is the only one that wants peace with Russia and to confront our shared enemies together instead of literally threatening to start WWIII. These idiots all want to keep giving aid to terrorists and to allow the terrorist state of Saudi Arabia to control our foreign policy, I don't want war with Iran or Assad or any of these people they are trying to say are so bad. Turkey and Saudi Arabia support ISIS and they're supposedly our allies? No, they are the true enemies of the United States.

A tariff or a tax on remittance payments, it would be easy. We shouldn't just get them to pay for a wall, we should force we should force Mexico and every other country to foot the bill for all the citizens illegally in our country. We have a $54 billion trade deficit with Mexico, we could solve this immigration issue within a term if we get Mexico to cooperate. It is Mexico that has been intentionally sending its underclass across our border, Latin America is one the most racist cultures in the world and they're ruling class doesn't care one bit about these immigrants despite their feigned outrage.

I wonder if there's anyone out there who supports Trump who doesn't sound completely unhinged? I have yet to hear from one, but I suppose it's possible they might be out there somewhere. Possible, but I think not very likely.

I'm not sure why you're not supporting Mr. Trump if that's the case :roll:

based on his public invective directed towards women and Hispanics, it is understandable that those two groups are less enthusiastic about his candidacy. as a businessman, he should know that it is bad business practice to deliberately insult a segment of his customer base. same for politics. it is contrary to the GOP's professed "big tent" philosophy, which of course was just a big lie all the way around.

Trump is winning Republican women and Hispanics

tell me who this 'hinged' candidate is and I'll tell you why you are wrong

just to repeat one more time, Bernie Sanders won't even be allowed to sniff the nomination. Hillary Clinton has already all but clinched it.

We'll see I suppose...and I don't know that he will win just that he's the only viable candidate.

viable = winning

The DNC has a completely rigged process, Hillary has 600 delegates to Bernie's like 30 and you need like 2300 to clinch it. Bernie is going to get crushed in South Carolina and the Super Tuesday states since he has minuscule support among blacks which make a large portion of those primary electorates. He did well with Hispanics in Nevada, he needs to win them like Hillary wins the black vote to even have a slight chance which I find unlikely. Even if(when) Hillary is indicted by the FBI and may drop out the DNC will still rally around someone like Joe Biden before Bernie Sanders. Michael Bloomberg has all but said he'll step in a run as independent if Bernie gets the nomination, the entire deck is stacked against him. I've seen how the RNC treated Ron Paul the last 2 cycles, the DNC is more heavier handed and in much more control so it's just an impossible hill to climb. Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee provided she hasn't been indicted by the FBI, Julian Castro will be her VP pick. This has all been decided already.

So you can throw around words like unhinged and extremist but when the decision is between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton it is an easy one. Say all these awful things about Trump but he isn't a criminal, he isn't rapist or rape enabler, he hasn't failed at every turn in his given profession.

Bernie to me never passed the smell test, he was not willing to stand up the Clinton machine or use the most obvious advantage he has over her by going after her questionable ethics and reminding everybody that she and her husband's foundation are under FBI investigation for potentially violating the Espionage Act and public corruption. If he were really serious about winning he'd address the elephant in the room. I honestly believe that Sanders was able to close the gap with Clinton in large part because of the campaigning Trump did against her leading up to Iowa and New Hampshire.

Actually, it can be great business, you just have to offend a segment that's unlikely to buy your product in the first place and is likely to raise a stink, and even better if it's a segment likely to be disliked by your market, like shock rockers insulting conservative Christians in the 80s and 90s. This is why I get so annoyed at people freaking out about shock jocks or political entertainers in the Limbaugh/Coulter vein, as all they're doing is playing right into their hands by talking about them and creating free hype for them.

As to the GOP big tent, it actually is quite large, certainly larger than the Democratic one, when one considers the breadth of ideologies present, which is why their primary is so crazy with all the different groups duking it out for control of the party.

I don't really despise the man, I just won't vote for him, is all. as for the people who like him, I will give them a wide berth. however, I DO despise the people who like cruz the ooze.
