Now before "Mr. you know who" claims I'm a liberal commie who wants taxes raised. I'm not saying raise taxes (as Republicans claim), I'm saying stop with these stupid un-thought-out tax cuts

I know we are really having a problem with bridges falling apart in my state because of cuts and now the people are screaming that the federal government should step in and pay for it. It's like a catch 22. We want all the modern conveniences of schools and bridges and highways, but we don't want to pay for their upkeep.

Though I'm sure a couple of you will bristle and blame this rebellion on Obamacare, lazy minorities who were better off as slaves, Jews and the liberal media.

It does get kind of old after a while, doesn't it?

Did you also notice that the collapse of the American Government, the ruin of the economy and the Welfare state that the far right wing radical Republicans all predicted would happen if Obama was elected never occurred? Nor were their polls correct of a sweeping Republican victory in Obama's second term. Nor their pledge that Obamacare would be defeated? In fact, they haven't been right about anything. The economy, foreign policy, the results of cutting taxes, or anything else.

You know, these clowns could actually win the presidency if they just jettisoned the baggage of the tea party, the states rights trailer park trash and the modern version of the Klan. But they are like a rock, just as dumb. Ideology for them trumps common sense.

On the other hand, we have Obama who could have been a great president, but instead he chose to pamper the liberals, ignore the veterans hospitals when he "knew perfectly well" about the problems (as did Bush) and push the left's stupid agenda while eviscerating the military at a time when we need it to be strong. It's a never ending cycle. The only difference I see is one's a fat stupid elephant and the other a seedy stupid donkey. It doesn't matter which one is elected, except the economy seems to always do better with the Democrats and they seem to stay out of wars.

Actually Diane, some Republican tea party tax cutters like former Republican congressman, two-time Republican presidential candidate, Ron Paul of the New Republic want to abolish public schools all together, if you can believe that. Having a whole nation of ignorant people is a recipe for disaster. Bad education is better than no education. But this is their solution to school problems and really to every problem, just cut it out all together. As Philly Dawg said, it's always this simplistic, crude, primeval view that has no chance of working in modern society. Views that only resonate with far right wing unrealistic people.

Yeah, the ignorance in that party is astounding, considering the education of most of them. It only goes to prove that education isn't the same thing as being intelligent. If you listen to FOX News, it's almost a fact (let them tell it)  that the country hates democrats in general and mrs. Clinton in particular. So much so that they believe (or want you to believe) that it's a shoe in that the Republicans will win the White house in 2016. Those people are so far from reality, they might be in an alternate universe. Yes, the Democrats have lost the house and senate maybe, but the Republicans will never win the White house unless something fantastic happens between now and 2016. Not because they can't, but because they're stupid. Fighting amongst themselves and silencing any opinion that is not sanctioned by the far right.

If Republicans lose the race for the White House in 2016 (which they most assuredly will), it will be because of their party’s polarizing, out-of-step stances on topics like arbitrary tax cuts without regard to consequences, their race baiting, their patronizing of women, their crazy notion that the world wnts to revisit Benghazi every week, their preocupation with repealing the unrepealable Obamacare, their inaction on immigration and their constant fight against a livable minimum wage.

It is these far right wing issues that alienate much of the broader electorate that the GOP needs to win a national contest in a country whose demographics and political realities are shifting under its feet. That's one thing that their dishonest and devious vote blocking ID laws and gerrymandering  can't fix.

 Oh yeah, they may control the house and even the senate but they will never win, because the Presidency overides things and because they are too stupid (even with their Princeton, Harvard and Yale college degrees) to figure out long term strategy.

The reason that Ronald Reagon was so popular and loved across party lines was because he didn't alienate what he understood was his constituency and he compromised when he needed to. Democrats and Republican lawmakers alike respected him because he wasn't a control freak who made everyone in his party stay the course or else. That's the difference between a leader and a figurehead who is so afraid to offend some right wing nut in his party that he moves only toward the conservative litmus-test issues that will ultimately assure his defeat in national elections. So republicans can find solace in their house and senate victories, it won't help them in the national elections. They don't understand a changing world or that you can't win elections anymore by alienating large groups of people or banking on a few backward states like Florida and Texas. OK, so Texas will always be Republican :)  but the key states like Florida, New York, Ohio, New Jersey and Pennsylvania are up for grabs.

Wow! Thanks for bumping this thread. It seems that as Republicans, we never learn. Nothing has really changed in the Republican party in all these years since that thread, huh? I re-read this whole thread, along with links, and videos, and can see vividly the same mentality of Christians in accepting evil people into their ranks for the imagined greater good. Some good Christians supporting Cliven Bundy because of an political ideology despite his unchristian views, I equate to supporting Trump because of political ideology, despite the fact we know he's race-baiting, inconsistent, unchristian and possesses no redeeming qualities or integrity. Nothing seems to have changed. So sad.

Ecc. 1:9
"That which hath been is that which shall be; and that which hath been done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun."

You would think that we would have leaned and wised up to make better decisions. But it was not to be. We shun Gov. John Kasich, Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Ted Cruz in Favor of a obvious  instigator and demagogue like Trump? I agree with others, we have no one to blame but Republicans.

 Some people (like Trump) just give Republicans a bad name. The majority of Republicans are not ignorant as Trump is, we're good, conservative, God fearing Christians who just wish Trump would shut up. The problem is, he's going to win the nomination. That leaves us with a dilemma.

Yes, some people who call themselves Republican are racist. No doubt about that. But let's not confuse them with being Republican. Or confuse some Republicans backing people like Bundy with the grass root Republicans. You have to learn to differentiate between the ones who get all the publicity and the core and backbone of the party. I feel some here are mixing the two.

Ya Think! Some of them are right wing Christians right here in this forum. What does it say about their Christianity that they can support a man like Trump?


Quote
The majority of Republicans are not ignorant as Trump is, we're good, conservative, God fearing Christians who just wish Trump would shut up.

Judging by "this" forum, I would say that the majority of Republicans here on this forum feel that way. But obviously not the majority of Republicans in general, because if that were true Trump wouldn't be the nominee. Duh. He's the nominee because the vast majority of Republicans support him. So you can't say the majority of Republicans are not as Trump, they want, endorse and support him. Including Ryan. So your comment doesn't ring true, does it?


Quote
The problem is, he's going to win the nomination.

He's going to win the nomination because "the majority of Republicans" support and voted for him. So your first comment is contradictory to the facts.


Quote
That leaves us with a dilemma.

A self inflicted Dilemma for a few, which isn't a dilemma for "the majority" of Republicans who want him. I would say stop trying to make excuses for Republicans, the great majority of them got the man they wanted. A bombastic, hateful, pretentious, prideful fear monger who will most assuredly tear this country apart. I don't find it disturbing that Republicans support Trump, I find it disturbing that Christians support Trump. I don't support Hillary, and I'm not afraid to say so. But these ignorant right wing Christians who support Trump is what is truly disturbing to me.

Trump's slogan is "I will make you proud" and "Make america great again" should be "I will make you prideful," and "I will make america hate again."

Well at least you admit it. Hear that John, Billnjune, Fred?

Who elected Trump as the Republican nominee? Was it the liberals, the news media and Hilary's emails, or was it Republicans. Republicans who didn't even bother to hold their nose, instead claiming it didn't stink at all and the liberal establishment  just says it stinks?

Final word, stop blaming liberals, democrats and the so-called jaded media for your own stupid choices.

Are we supposed to be ashamed of that? The majority of Americans support Trump. The rest are liberals who want to destroy the country by socialism. Don't trust the polls people, Trump will win if we just ignore the liberals and keep pushing for him.

Yeah, Right.

Latest Polls June 2016

I deliberately chose the FOX poll because even they say Clinton Leads. And Please keep in mind that the first one (FOX News) is hardly impartial, so it's surely a lot more lopsided. As other polls show.


General Election: Trump vs. Clinton    FOX News    Clinton 42, Trump 39    Clinton +3

President Obama Job Approval    Gallup    Approve 52, Disapprove 43    Approve +9

Congressional Job Approval    The Economist/YouGov    Approve 9, Disapprove 69    Disapprove +60


What does this say about Republicans who rule congress, claim Obama is incompetent and say Trump is America's choice? Can you spell delusional?

The more Trump speaks, the more he will slide in the polls, that's pretty much guaranteed, and we have no one to blame but ourselves and stupidity. The one, the only Republican that I didn't want to see win, won. It's a dark day in America.
