    This little spew from you doesn’t change the reality of what you are doing. You are acting the part of a disrupter on Trump threads. If you don’t have anything on topic to offer, stay off the thread.


    So let me get this right.. ANY anti-trump feelings, ideas, communications, postings, or TRUTH is NOT ALLOWED HERE?..

    AND is regarded as a “disruption”... trolling.. or negative feedback.. and is not allowed..

    Is that your premise?..

    You forgot to mention he has a forked tail. And when he’s alone, he has horns. And when alone his breath is known to have fire in it at times. And his teeth are really pointy, but he had work done. HosePipe, you are destroying your credibility here.


    NO.. Credibility because I WARN Against Donald Trump?..
    Don’t wag my tail, with tongue hanging out like a puppy..
    Expect a history of conservative political DO’ings..

    At least some conservative political history..
    And am willing to wait for it to be PROVEN.... when it’s not been..

    Donald Trump HAS NO Credibility AS a conservative.. or even as a republican..
    AND YOU SAY I have no credibility as a conservative.?.

    You throw around terms like “he is not a conservative” without any recent evidence.


    True I do that.. but that is the problem..

    A sever liberal history with his whole complete family being arch-liberals.. leaves room for *CAUTION* when dealing with Donald Trump...

    He changes like the *WIND... known by anyone that’s watched him do it.. i.e. researched..


    Would NOT be a problem IF he was the ONLY game in Town.. i.e. trump
    BUT alas he is NOT.. only Ted Cruz is reliably REPUBLICAN..
    The ONLY game in town for this election...

    I even voted for Myth Romney.. because I had no CHOICE..
    DO NOT WANT to make that mistake happen AGAIN in 2016..

    If you can read, and have the ambition to become informed, read his book: “Time to Get Tough.” Furthermore, watch his interviews with Forbes, Hewett, Hannity and others. You might get a clue.


    I know TRUMPS History and his Histrionics......
    Whats OVER-LOOKED is his dealings with democrats and ultra liberals..
    You know SUPPORTING them when it suites his fancy..

    NOT all who write books can be TRUSTED... to do what they say..
    I feel TRUMP is one of those..

    He has been a -democrat, independent, republican- several times like a revolving door..

    Probably he HAS NO VALUES WORTH counting on..

    Even if he weren’t a Republican, who cares?
    Look at the Republicans in power now; they’re terrible!


    Yeah it’s easy to SAY your a republican while democrat..
    Democrats have no compunctions about lying.. (LIKE MUSLIMS)..

    Promising one thing while campaigning and doing another..
    The Gold Thumb goes those who do- what they say- they’ll do.. i.e. Ted Cruz..

    No vetting.. no testing, no history except for the BAD HISTORY..

    He is brag at this point.. no political action..
    Much like Obama when he was RUNNING as a candidate...
    BIG words.. which he promptly did the opposite of.. i.e. Obama..

    TRUMP could be the same.. and then; blame it all on Congress..
