Presidential primaries

What's your thoughts on the current political landscape?
Two thousand years ago wise men sought Christ, wise men still do.

Techniques are situational, principles are universal.

Fast as the wind, quiet as the forest, aggressive as fire, and immovable as a mountain.

He who gets there first with the most...wins!

Minimal force may not be minimum force!

We don't rise to the occasion...we sink to the level of our training.

I'm hoping that someone we want / need comes out at the later stages, right before Nov, in a third party independent platform. IMO, that's the only hope we have. There's no one I could vote for now. Clinton? - watched one of her promos and she said companies will pay if they leave. So they pay a penalty (if that), but they still leave and take jobs with them. Bernie? - seems like a decent guy, but wants to give the farm away. There's too much give away as it is........ On the flip side, the Donald? - Nobody in either the senate or congress would work with him and his bombastic ideas. He says what a lot of folks want to hear and other's are to afraid to say outloud, but he's wants his own way. "I'm the boss, so it's my way or else. Cruz? - wants to get rid of the IRS. Sounds good, but then who oversee's the taxes that the country supposedly runs on. Talk about unemployment, IRS has loads of folks now without a job. The idea is a joke at best and it's a major failed promise. Rubio? - Didn't show up 80% of the time in his current job, don't think we can have a 20% president, although it would be 20% more than what we've had.

Nope. I think were screwed big time again!!...............and the rest of the world is laughing their butts off at this circus. But that's what clowns are there for, to make us laugh. I would laugh, but the anger gets in the way...........

Either Trump or Cruz.  Both are outsiders.  Both are hated by the power elite of the party (a good thing as the power elite need to go bye-bye).  And to Trumps credit, he's self sponsored so he isn't beholden to any special interest group.  Rubio started out TEA party but fell right in with the establishment.  As of right now it looks like he'll lost Florida (I hope) and then he should be out of the race.

However, the power elite (with Romney as a mouth piece) want a brokered convention.  If Trump doesn't have the delegate count, but has the clear majority, they're going to try to block the nomination.  If that happens then the party will collapse on itself as the establishment will have gone against the will of the base.  We'll see what happens.

On the other side, well, I don't vote for socialists or murderers so that pretty much takes care of their offering.
Body building isn't everything...its just that being small, weak and puny really sucks!

Remember somewhere out there a little Chinese girl is warming up with your max!

I've looked at Bernie.  Here's the synopsis;  He is a self-described Socialist.  No secret.  He wants to have all kinds of 'free' stuff for people.  Hey, that sounds great.  Um...who's suppose to pay for all that 'free' stuff?  The tax payer.  So you will have to pay for someone else's healthcare, mortgage, abortion, college tuition and food.  Do you want to do that?  I don't.  Socialism doesn't work anywhere on this planet outside of propaganda pamphlets.  You have two classes of people:  The poor and the elite.  Middle class doesn't exist.  Which class will most people fit into under his watch?  It is nothing more than income distribution which is pure Communism. 

Additionally, he has stated he wants to grow the government by another 40%!  It's far too big as it is!

As for Trump, why would he get us into WWIII....we're already in it courtesy of Bush/Obama.  And remember, he's didn't want to get involved in Iraq.  And like him or hate him, he's the only candidate that isn't owned by a special interest group.  That is a big thing in my opinion.  Is he arrogant?  Yep.  Is he blustery?  Yep.  Does he scare the crap out of the Dems and Reps alike?  YEP!  And for good reason, he won't play their games.  Both sides kick the can down the road and make money in ways that would put the ordinary citizen in prison.  That's a fact.  Time to shake up Washington D.C. and he and/or Cruz are the ONLY two candidates that would actually do it.  Neither are part of the establishment and Cruz has gone against the establishment numerous times. 

I'd be happy with either Trump or Cruz.  D.C. needs to be shaken to it's very core.  I'm tired of the rhetoric.  Tired of the lies.  Tired of the corruption.  Tired of the cronyism.  Trump and Cruz have their flaws but they are light years ahead of any of these other candidates.

While I agree with much of what you said and your correct that the powers that be are scared of both Trump and Cruz, Trump is the only one, that from our present perspective, can't be brought, we keep forgetting 2 basic tenets of the power elite. 1) They don't give up that power that has been garnered for many years and generations of political cronyism and 2) They will stop at nothing to keep that power. (ie; remember JFK and brother Bobby) Regardless of who did the shootings, the real reason behind it was that they were not on board with the power brokers and as such, were eliminated. Same could happen here with either Trump or Cruz, but I think Cruz would sell out, because at heart he is just another politican and to become a party politican, one must sell their soul to the party.

Ben Carson has endorsed Trump this morning!  That is awesome on many levels.  Mr. Carson really blasted Hillary in that she (as a student) was on a first name basis with Saul Alinsky who wrote 'Rules for Radicals'.  That's a book on how to turn a country Socialist.  Alinsky dedicated that book to Lucifier (the devil) who was the original radical.  She needs to be outed for these and other ties. like Margaret Sanger!  If you're unfamiliar with her, she's the founder of Planned Parenthood.  PP has NOTHING to do with 'women's healthcare'.  That's only a front. Sanger hated blacks and wanted to wiped them completely off the planet.  Google her!  That's why the bulk of PP clinics are in poor/black neighborhoods and they receive the most abortions.  And Hillary said she REALLY respects Sanger and what she's accomplished.

You will note that the recent 'protests' are from move on.org and black lives matter.  Both are Socialist back groups and aren't really protesters in the legitimate sense.  They are professionally organized to cause disruption.  When asked what exactly they were protesting, the comment was that they 'preferred not to say'.  So you're protesting but don't actually want to say what and why?  Give me a break.  They are professional disruptors no different than the jackbooted brown shirt thugs in Nazi Germany.

And it won't get any better.  Both of these Socialist organizations have deep pockets (read George Soros).  The basic plan is to divide America from within.  These radicals are referred to as 'useful idiots' by Karl Marx.  Ironically, when a country goes Socialist, these 'useful idiots' are the first to be purged because after the Socialists have ceased power they don't want any radicals around.

That's history.  Americans would be well served to closely study history and the agenda of Socialism and what it actually is rather than the flowery picture they portray.

Regardless of who gets elected, the only saving grace we may still have and that's most likely marginal at best, is the Congress and Senate. If they act the same way as they have done under our present administration, we may survive another 4 years, until hopefully someone can step forward and be a true leader for the people. This is more than likely just wishing out loud, but if you don't have hope, then all is lost.
