    Are the rest of you as disgusted as I am with the current political process? This began over a year ago and has cost millions of dollars while no end is in sight. In fact we are no closer to having even a nominee for President. Wouldn't it be possible to host the debates on CSPAN as table discussions that could be run without the attacks and disputes that are fostered on the Media television channels? Wouldn't this be a more sensible way to present the candidates and their opinions? It could also eliminate the millions of dollars of fundraising....

    Trump! Clinton! Is that all there is? No. Fortunately, we have other choices. A recent poll shows that if the election were held today, 11 percent of Americans would vote for a Libertarian, former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson. That's surprising, since last election Johnson got just 1 percent of the vote. This year, he's doing better, probably because Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hold the highest percentage of "unfavorable" reactions from voters in more than 30 years. I assume the Libertarian total will go higher, since most poll respondents had no opinion about Johnson. They probably don't know who...

    Planned Parenthood continues to be a key issue for pro-life voters, and for good reason. Planned Parenthood, the largest abortion provider in the United States, performs over 300,000 abortions a year, traffics in baby body parts, and receives nearly a half-billion dollars a year in government funds. Pro-lifers want their government to have nothing to do with Planned Parenthood. So what have the candidates for President said and done about Planned Parenthood? Republicans: Donald Trump has never held public office and has no voting record on Planned Parenthood. He has spoken about them several times saying both that he would...

    Global markets appear to be poised for another panic, the presidential campaign isn't giving us much to choose from, and we just surpassed $19 trillion in government debt. But I'm more worried about something that affects me personally - the common cold. I hate being sick with a cold. I hate the scratchy throat and the difficulty to sleep, concentrate or breathe.

Since December, you have been bleeding staff, most of which left to go to Ted Cruz's campaign. Even the morning of the caucus, several more left. In December, we read that several staffers had complained that your 'friend' Armstrong Williams was listened to more than your paid staff and several missteps had occurred because of that. You apparently still listen and confide in him, hence the misstep just before the caucus Monday night. Since you are...

    Jeb Bush said he believed that the Supreme Court should have allowed the states to make a decision on marriage, adding that it is ďcrucial that as a country we protect religious freedom and the right of conscience and also not discriminate.Ē ďGuided by my faith, I believe in traditional marriage. I believe the Supreme Court should have allowed the states to make this decision. I also believe that we should love our neighbor and respect others, including those making lifetime commitments. In a country as diverse as ours, good people who have opposing views should be able to live...

    Rather than one or two conservatives to rally-round in opposition to the party establishment, we get over 30 characters up there... can the voters can even keep their names straight?† All I know is an overcrowded Gee-oh-Pee field is NOT a good thing for the American constitutionalist conservative movement... not at all. So we really do need to thin out the herd as quickly as possible... perhaps a early-round paintball war would do the trick? In the name of clarity, please pick your own bracket, based on political desirability, qualification for the job-- and ability to win in November...

    Which Republican presidential candidates support amnesty? I have analyzed all the major Republican presidential candidates (except Ben Carson and Rick Sanctorum, who are long shots, and Donald Trump, who has undocumented hair). I have found that all the major presidential candidates support amnesty for illegal aliens, except for one. Can you guess which one?

    Donald Trump is scheduled to make an announcement on whether he'll run for president Wednesday, and he will reportedly travel to Iowa later that day for a rally. According to the Des Moines Register, Trump's Iowa staff confirmed the news. "I can't imagine what he's announcing," Ryan Keller, deputy director for Trump's exploratory team in Iowa, told the Register. "We're all waiting for that." Trump, a Republican, said last week he has made up his mind on a possible presidential run, but has not revealed his plans. His Wednesday announcement will take place at Trump Tower in New York City,...

    Of those running for president, who will give this speech? ďLadies and Gentlemen, my administration will implement a series of economic policies to cause the economy to grow at an average rate of 4 percent or more a year. Growth of 4 percent-plus per year will create jobs at a faster rate than the growth in the labor force and provide hope for those who had despaired of finding a good job again. At a growth rate of a little over 4 percent per year, real incomes for all of our citizens will double in only 17 years. (At the...
