    But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: Ephesians 4:15 KJV Rush you made this conflict yourself by teaching your listeners to think for themselves and they are. You have circled the wagons for Ted Cruz with the rest of the conservative media while a majority of your listeners have chosen Donald Trump. They have heard all of your arguments for your preferred candidate and have logically decided he is not as good a choice as Trump. The disappointing part is after your fans have stuck through thick...

  • The Convention Could Very Well Prove to Be a RUN-OFF Election That Trump Could Very Well LOSE

    I have heard that a lot of Republicans, ESPECIALLY Trump supporters, have said that the candidate who comes into the Cleveland convention with the most delegates should be (automatically?) awarded the nomination even if he cannot get 1237 votes on the first ballot. I just want to go on record as saying that this widespread notion is politically stupid--even politically monstrous. The Republican Party's rules since the very birth of the Party have specified that a prospective nominee must achieve a majority of Convention votes to become the nominee. As most FReepers already know, this longstanding fact is not disputed....

    Well, for one thing, it would be counterproductive. With three, four or five candidates drawing delegates, it simply prevents anyone from getting to 1237 and ensures that the GOPe gets to install one of their own establishment guys at the convention. The malleable "rules" are designed to to preserve, protect and defend the establishment ruling class. Nothing more. Cruz knows this. He has betrayed the grassroots.

    Some people claim that Trump only recently arrived at most of these viewpoints, so I'd like to discuss Trump's history with each of these issues (sorry for the length but I think these important topics deserve to be delved into). I was told yesterday that Trump is a liberal Democrat. Trump’s political registration records since 1987 are public and available online. During this period, Trump has been a registered Republican for more than twice as long as he was a registered Democrat.

    Why are the effects of the Colorado convention still lingering, and why have they taken on a life of their own? It's certainly not because of "Trump's whining." If you believe that every criticism of every campaign event by ANY side is "whining," well, yeah, Trump "whined" (just as Cruz's supporters seem to be "whining" about the NY dinner). If you want to take that line, why has this seemingly touched a nerve that Trump's "whining" about so many other things did not? History is replete with instances where the specific developments were badly misunderstood, misreported, or didn't happen at...

To read these ledes and the twitter feeds of the #NeverTrump crowd you’d have thought there were nearly a half dozen elections you somehow slept through and Trump had been trounced in all of them. The reality, of course, is that there weren’t any public elections and the only time Trump was actually beaten anywhere in recent memory was in Wisconsin. But what Trump was losing at was the race to collect delegates who are loyal to him and will...

    As a former prosecutor and now defense attorney, I’ve had a number of thoughts about Clinton’s case, which mostly deal with tactics and logistics and not so much with the actual evidence itself. For these thoughts, I put myself in the shoes of the U.S. Attorney who gets this case dumped in his lap. What, exactly, are you dealing with? 1. Your defendant, thanks to the very graft machine you are expected to prosecute, will have access to almost unlimited financial resources. Unless the FBI has identified all the shady “shell corporations” where Hillary has hidden her money, and you...

    Some may consider the status quo as a good period for the oppressive dictator in Iran. With U.S. President Barack Obama generously relieving most sanctions under the nuclear deal, the mullahs have jumped to the opportunity for saber-rattling by test launching ballistic missiles, caring less about violating numerous United Nations Security Council resolutions. Tehran has with the utmost temerity humiliated America by capturing its sailors and provoked emotions through firing unguided rockets at a dangerously close range from U.S. ships. Despite all this, President Hassan Rouhani is on a campaign to convince the West Iran is actually a wise place...

    Rudyard Kipling wrote a prescient poem in 1919, called "Gods of the Copybook Headings.". This is, simply put, a must-read poem. Copybooks were texts that allowed British schoolchildren of the time to practice penmanship, and the phrase they would copy -- often a phrase of a sermon, or some wise aphorism -- would be featured on the copybook heading. Kipling was appalled by the counterintuitive modern thoughts of the day, and wrote the poem to point out how eons of wisdom and experience of humankind were hard-won, and he urged us not to embrace the depraved 'shortcuts' we began to...

Sure the Enquirer isn’t the most reliable source, but they did beak the John Edwards sex scandal. Now Ted is going after them for running the story. That begs the question, is it because he is guilty? Now that Ted Cruz seems the only competitor for Donald Trump for the nomination for president, the wheels seem to be falling off the wagon. The Cruz fans weathered the Enquirer story by writing it off as fiction. But when the attorney for the...

Oh boy Trump stepped in it again by claiming women should be punished for having abortions. The Conservotocracy had a collectivist cow over the thought feminists would be offended by something a Republican would say. What was worse is he did not celebrate it or make a victim of the woman, but did the unthinkable and made the baby the victim. Perhaps having his fifth grandchild this week made the debate more personal than...

Pro-life supporters are scratching their heads.

This explains why 1) no matter which party wins an election, the downward spiral continues and 2) neither party has been able to reform itself.

Citing interviews with "more than two dozen" Clinton insiders, including several who spoke directly to Bill Clinton, the article reported on a series of emergency meetings Clinton supporters convened to respond to Donald Trump's February 20 victory in South Carolina and his February 23 win in Nevada. The article reported that Bill Clinton and others argued against those inclined to underestimate Trump "that Mr. Trump clearly had a keen sense of the electorate’s mood...

    I looked into Trump University. It was active in the earlier 2000s when a housing boom and then bubble were in full swing. Nearly every person that paid for the training rated it highly and many made a lot of money in real estate. But in 2008, many people lost money. In 2008, there was a massive real estate collapse due to a once-in-a-century banking collapse. Is Donald Trump responsible for the real estate collapse of the late 2000s? Of course not. Is he then responsible for people losing money? No. Greedy lawyers filed for a class action. They certified...

    Folks, we need to keep our eye on the prize and settle down. We are going to have a great pro-America candidate whether it's Cruz or Trump, and we're going to crush the godless America-hating Marxist/fascist felon, Hillary Clinton, in the general election! And that's just a fact. And that's the bottom line. We are finally going to secure our borders and start helping repatriate the illegal aliens to Mexico or where ever they came from. And we're going to tighten up and start enforcing our immigration laws, including ending sanctuary cities and possibly ending anchor babies. Both of our...

    Romans 11:31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy. We have never seen a Party declare and fight an all out war on any candidate like we are seeing now. The GOP has had nearly all of the onion skins removed to reveal itself as one of the most corrupt organizations in DC. What we are watching is the fear of a Party petrified they will lose their power if an outsider was to do the unthinkable and win their Presidency. This is Tea Party times ten. It is obvious...

    They're killing us and we're not even bothering to fight back. What do we manufacture in the U.S. anymore? Where have all our manufacturing jobs gone? Why can't we be competitive? Why are our costs so high? Is government the solution or the problem?

    My Open Letter to Mitt Romney Mitt March 3, 2016. I am writing this with quite a bit of consternation. I am not sure you will see it, much less read it. But I hope you will. Please forgive the length in advance. I watched your speech today about Donald Trump, and I have to say, I was disappointed. I watched you in 2012 accept Donald Trump's endorsement in Las Vegas. You said glowing things about the man. You were clearly glad to get his endorsement and talked about his success in business and that he was someone who saw...

    Keep blasting away at your leading candidate and trying to thwart the will of your voters, you will lose any chance at winning the presidency and you'll lose the House and Senate too. Leftist open-borders RINOs Romney, McCain and the so-called GOP "leaders" are complete idiots. They don't call it the stupid party for nothing.

    It appears that the media outlets have already begun to leak exit data about Super Tuesday results. It seems fairly predictable so far. In the same way, what will happen with the Trump and Cruz haters in the media is also predictable. They will deny any victories on the part of either man by comparing it to what some talking head thinks "should have happened". We know that that has been a big part of their playbook to date, and we know that Marco Rubio is their establishment guy. They will pull out all the stops tonight, because he appears...
  • Proposal to make politicians responsive to voters rather than pressure groups (vanity)

    If there is one thing that this election cycle has exposed is the intense rage that voters feel about the political ruling class (the "establishment") and how deaf and unresponsive they are to the will of the people that they are supposed to represent. We keep thinking that the problem is the people we elect, and that if we elect better people they will pay more attention to us than the pressure groups that end up co-opting them. But how many times have we tried that in the past with no change in the results? (2012 and 2014 are the...
