So Ulysses likes Dugout Don. Isn’t that cute.

What does Hercules say? What does Zeus say? What does Arnold Schwarzenegger say?

....... our country is made up of “We, the people” not “We, the party”.....

Trump/s Super Tuesday wins surpassed voter turnouts obtained by newcomer Obama.

Obama was lauded by his party; Trump gets shot down by His party.

In uber-liberal Massachusetts, 18,000 Democrats switched parties to vote for Trump.


Gopeers oughta consider....what the Trump voters might do, if they make one false move against Trump....

Not to mention what Trump might do.

Throughout the centuries there were men who took first steps

down new roads,

armed with nothing but their own vision.

Trump is now the presumptive nominee, Even the media pundits are now admitting this inevitable conclusion.

All that waits, is Rubio bedwetting after Florida and Cruz making peace and joining the movement.

The idiots who hero-worshiped Obama in 08 and 12 had the excuse of youth.

But what’s your excuse for donning the kneepads for another authoritarian statist progressive?

Men have worshipped heroes through the centuries.

And for every Gandhi, Washington, and Neil Armstrong, there are of course, the anti-heroes such as Obama.  You may want to read my FR column: I Agree with What Rubio Said about Obama.

Cruz is certainly heroic.  I admire his courage in fighting Congress.

But I believe Trump is the better choice, in part because his ability to deliver value has been demonstrated over and over again for 40 years.

In fact, he has been collecting votes long before he entered politics -- from the thousands who receive paychecks from him and the people who stayed at his hotels, buy his apartments, play on his golf course, watch his TV programs, buy his books, etc.

May the best man win the Republican nomination.  And I hope that conservatives will rally around the chosen nominee.  I certainly will.

Agreed. A lot of Trump supporters sound just like the dimmos. They don’t just support their candidate, they worship him. I’ve tried to engage dimmos to get them to tell me what they hate about their candidate, what they dislike, or even what they’re uncomfortable about. But their hero can literally do no wrong, because to say ANYTHING negative about their guy is the equivalent of blasphemy, once again, because they worship him as a “god.”

Trump himself has alluded to this fervor. A couple times now he’s said that he could murder someone in Times Square and his followers would still be committed to him.

This is unhealthy in a constitutional republic. We need to be able to see our candidates for what they are: Usually deeply flawed, fallen human beings. We need to view all the candidates with a healthy dose of skepticism and cynicism.

For instance, I voted for Cruz yesterday. But I recognize he’s flawed. He surrounded himself with ruthless hired help and it cost him dearly. And this, of course, calls into question his judgment. Who will he select as cabinet members? But still, on balance, I thought he was the best candidate and I held my nose and voted for him.

That means, of course, that I saw far more flaws in the other candidates. Carson is out of his depth. A nice guy, but clueless. Rubio and Kasich are both establishment candidates that I couldn’t even consider. But Trump is by far the most flawed of all, at least in my opinion. It would just be refreshing to see some of the more rabidly pro-Trump freepers stop being so completely committed to someone they barely know, and who held very leftist views until very recently. This, of course, calls into question his true commitment to these newly minted views.

What happens to this deep commitment if he ends up being no friend of the 1st Amendment, the 2nd Amendment, or even worse, becomes the authoritarian tyrant Obama has become? Will they then, finally, admit they were wrong? Or will they keep on ignoring and excusing his every word and deed?

I guess what I’m saying is folks need to take a step back and take a deep breath.
