There’s Confusion, Left and Right, Among Primary Voters This Year, Says AMAC

vote-electionWASHINGTON, DC, Feb 26 – “The Presidential Primary Campaigns have created an atmosphere of confusion on both the right and the left.  The popularity of Socialist contender Bernie Sanders has certainly taken Liberal Hillary Clinton by surprise in the Democratic races.  For Republicans, the search is on for the candidate who is the real Conservative,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

AMAC doesn’t endorse candidates but it does endorse the concept of Conservativism “and after eight years of an ultra-Liberal administration, the country appears to want to steer the ship of state to starboard, to set us on the right course.”  But it may not be so easy to tell who the real Conservatives in the 2016 field are, he says.

Robert Charles, a veteran of both the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, recently published an essay at Townhall Magazine entitled How Should a Conservative Vote? in which he offered his views on how to sort out the Republican candidates.

Charles, who is a senior consultant to AMAC, believes that you can’t go wrong by taking the advice of Russell Kirk whom, he says, is the Father of Modern Conservatism.  In 1953, when the Conservative Movement in the U.S. was in its infancy, Kirk published his book, The Conservative Mind, which “described the existence of a coherent, connected tradition of conservative thinking, going back at least two hundred years, according to Lee Edwards, Ph.D., a prominent historian.

Based on Kirk’s philosophy, Charles suggests that we ask ourselves these questions to determine whose ticket you’ll be punching at the ballot box: “Are you thinking hard about what you are doing, not just feeling the satisfaction of slashing at what is despised?  Are you thinking about who can work within our complex constitutional system, to thoughtfully change what we do not like?  Are you thinking about who personifies prudence – not the mad dash to a seemingly simple answer?  Are you a real conservative, drawing your convictions from faith and duty, patience and history?  Or are you just another French Revolutionary, willing to take the boat over the falls, destroying what we all value in the process? In short, are you thinking about who may lead wisely, not just with passion?”

Weber says that his colleague’s advice is sound, particularly in this year’s primary campaigns marked by “bombast and name-calling” and little in the way of thoughtful positioning.  As Charles put it in his article, the AMAC chief noted, “keep your eyes on ‘long run consequences’ and not just ‘temporary advantage or popularity.’  Why?  Because ‘liberals and radicals … are imprudent.’  You will know their nature because ‘they dash at their objectives without giving much heed to the risk of new abuses worse than the evils they hope to sweep away.’

God Bless the AMAC, You are a breath of freshness since AARP.
Donald Trump is our 1st choice from the get go. We need an outsider running our nation. The President should run the country as a business. To HELL with Political Correctness, Super Packs and The establishment, Focus on Security, Immigration, Military, Economy and Debt. Immigration from Europe should be stopped until we know who is coming in.
Our Southern Border should be tightened up and if Illegals are found be deported. INS should be given a free hand and let them do their job.
Obama’s Health care should be repealed and done away with. We had a system that needed to be adjusted, not replaced. So do it!
Isis, Al Qaeda, or what ever should be wiped out, this won’t be an over night task.
This country was set up as a Republic and a Democracy. If the Islamic’s want to change it go back where they came from!
We don’t need to have our Constitution and Bill of Rights changed for them.
In closing Dr. Ben Carson would be my 1st choice as VP along with Donald Trump.
Let the voters pick our Electoral Collage and have them vote for the voters choice not the Liberal Public Press’s choice.
God Bless
HER.

I heard this morning that my first choice (who I didn’t think had a chance back in June), Dr. Carson will be endorsing Donald Trump. Lately, I have been thinking Cruz, because he is the only one who at least “tried” to bring congress in line. I still like him and will vote for him next week but I won’t feel bad if I ultimately vote for Trump in November, since Ben Carson can endorse anyone at this point and is choosing Trump.

“The Donald” should not be the Republican nominee. He is an embarrassment to the Republican partly because of his disgusting mouth, talking ill of fellow Republicans, cannot complete an idea during a discussion or speech, and constantly repeats himself. Sure he talks a good line but remember he is not running for King – where what he says is acted on without question. He will have to work within our Constitutional boundaries. That means working with the other two branches of government to get ideas and policies accomplished. The Presidency is only ONE part of our government. I understand that we all are frustrated with the way our great country is in decline and although I believe it is mostly because of the last 8 years of BHO, there is also room for blame on the Republican congress.

I would like to ask of those who are “Trumpsters” – did you vote the last two elections? Or are you the one who constantly whines and complains about government but rarely does anything to help fix it. Do you communicate with your congressional representatives and let them know how you feel? If they are not supporting your ideas – do you work to vote them out or whine and complain when election time comes around and sit on your recliner and do nothing.

I worked for the Romney election effort last election. We didn’t win. I am told it was in part to those evangelicals who wouldn’t vote for a Mormon. I am Baptist and my religious beliefs only factor in some of my decision. I also served in the United States Air Force for 26 years. I believe you have to look at the whole picture from a rational point of view. If you didn’t vote last election or you voted for BHO…..shame on you ! Because you contributed to the problem NOT the solution. Be an educated voter NOT one who is ramped up by ideas that have no way of being realized. Donald Trump makes a terrific CEO where his employees jump at the drop of a hat. Our government does not work that way.

No doubt – we do need change. A vote for Donald Trump is NOT the answer. I’m voting for Ted Cruz. He is the Conservative we have been waiting for and he will beat Hillary. Can you run a government from prison ??? Don’t get me started on that.

Think about it! All the problems that our country has is created by the 543 politicians already in Washington. We, the taxpaying people didn’t create, for example, the 14 trillion dollar debt and all the other internal and otherwise problems.
THEY DID! They could fix our problems if they wanted to.They want it this way. They put the blame on the “other guy”
as the reason for their inability. GREED is ruling Washington. We need people in Washington who are not doing it for the money.

Fact – Social Security and Medicare monies were “held sacred” – untouchable for any other than designed purpose. Fact – These monies were taken out of their secure hold in 1955 and placed into the “general fund”. Regardless of which party did this, the opposing party never questioned nor changed it. Our political leaders are still spending our savings for their own use. What candidate has addressed these facts? The “National Debt” is to the taxpayers. Which presidential candidates and which upcoming Senate and Representative politicians will address and restore these monies?

E.T., I, personally, have NEVER EVER used any type of mind altering drugs. In fact, I haven’t taken alcohol for over 20 years, other than maybe an occasional glass of wine once or twice a year. Twenty years ago, I had kidney stones for 2 years in a row, because I had high uric acid that reacted with the beer and the daily aspirin I was taking. As a result, I no longer trust doctors because his solution was to prescribe prescription drugs to control my uric acid that I would need to take for the rest of my life. … Poppycock, I did my own research and found that cherries could relieve the pain of gout, also caused by high uric acid. I take a tart cherry supplement that not only controls my uric acid, but also is effective in fighting inflammation. A side benefit I’ve discovered is that I no longer experience arthritic pain in my kness or cramping in my fingers. I tell you all this because I, personally, don’t believe in taking any chemical prescription drugs of any type and besides, I’ve just given you good advice on dealing with YOUR arthritic pain.

Look, I’m as angry as anybody about our lying politicians. As a small business owner, I have twice lost my businesses, not because of any bad decisions I made but because of stupid government policies that were put into effect by Democratic Presidents. That’s why I changed from being a Conservative Regan Democrat to being a Conservative Republican. I try using common sense in all my decisions. A leopard doesn’t change its spots. Trump IS NOT or ever has been a Conservative. He’s had 4 bankruptcies, not 1, but 4. That means there are many people and small business owners who were personally financially hurt by Trump’s bankruptcies. You’d better believe the Democrats and the Mainstream Media are already lining up as many of these people as possible to parade in front of the cameras once Trump gains the nomination. He ALREADY has a national disapproval rating of 60%, add the many people who have been bilked by Trump in his 4 bankruptcies, then add the bully personality and personal insults and you have a GUARANTEED LOSER. I’ve ALREADY SAID that I will vote for whoever the Republican candidate is, I just don’t want another phony Conservative (Trump, Rubio or Kasich and now maybe Romney again) to be my party’s choice once again. I wanted Dr. Carson but my 2nd choice is Cruz. I would even welcome Carly Fiorina rather than lose with another Liberal Rino or some phony Republican like Trump.

Stop acting like Trump by insulting anybody who disagrees or criticizes YOUR choice by pointing out the flaws in that choice. If Trump has had 4 bankruptcies, why isn’t he now poor? I’ve never declared bankruptcy, yet twice now I have been financially affected so much that I’ve had to start from scratch all over again. So I’m entitled to my anger too, I just try to use my common sense in evaluating these lying politicians.

Rik, you are a brave person who has made it through some very rough times. My hat is off to you.
About Trump’s bankruptcies, this is the norm for any big businesses that have to take chances and try new things. Unlike General Motors, who would have gone bankrupt but didn’t because the
“establishment politicians” made the tax payers bail them out, Trump had to file. Why didn’t Washington bail out Trump or any business that was going bankrupt. Then no businesses would have to file. Making tax payers bail out any business socialistic.

Hi E.T.Elmo. When a company files bankruptcy other companies who have done business with them gets hurt financially even if the bankruptcy is for reorganization. To make a long story short, those businesses still don’t recover the full amount they are owed. They may be lucky to get 15,25 or 50 cents for every dollar they are owed or none at all. So, making light of any bankruptcy shows you know nothing about the impact of bankruptcy. Trump filed 4 times. If you owned a very small business and another business filed bankruptcy, and owed you a large amount of money, would you be so non chalant about it? I can answer that, no you would not. It’s not always big businesses left holding the bag. In the construction business some small sub contractors work out of their trucks with no business office. These are the ones who usually don’t get anything in settlement.

We are in a difficult place to be sure. I don’t know if Trump would be the best and I don’t know if I want to vote for him except I WILL NEVER vote for HILLARY so if it comes down to her and Trump I’ll vote for him. As for his bankruptcies.. many people have business failures and I really do not think that should be counted against him. He has had many successes as well but only his failures are picked out. Do we really have the reasons or details for his bankruptcies? Many businesses today are going under b/c of ObamaCare and many other ridiculus regulations. My husband saw Trump this morning on CNBS and said he was very sane and predidential like. I think he acts ridiculous because he is getting attention and he knows people are angry and it might be working. I think all of them lie to some point. I too liked Carson and I liked Carly. But unfortunately their voice did not get them anywhere.

Ted Cruz is the Only one who has a 4 year record of doing what he told his constituents he would do, and that showed his dependability and strength to fight amnesty & obamacare & planned parenthood & Iran deal, etc..
He also has a 5 year history of arguing cases at Supreme Court to win for Ten Commandments monuments, 2nd Amendment, and against UN/World Court!

I was reading Trumps bulletpoints for changes to healthcare if he is elected. He says he will request repeal of Obamacare but will he make sure the insurance companies eliminate the “one size fits all” policies that Obamacare required. Call me cynical but I have learned not to trust anything unless it’s spelled out. That mandated coverage is the reason premiums are so high. Neither did he mention changing the requirement about having to meet a deductible first before the policy pays anything at all. He did mention an HSA. That is not going to help people who can’t afford to fund one or can’t go to the doctor/have medical tests or procedures because they can’t afford it (because of having to meet the deductible) but make too much to get Medicaid. Did miss something in his proposed changes? I am very detail oriented so I want more of the “nitty gritty”. He did say that he was open for suggestions.

HAM,

You noticed the continued vagueness in his plans as well I see. Yes, he is basically stating that he will ask Congress to repeal Obamacare and replace it with something else. As you point out, he then goes on to describe the standard “catch-all” bromides that have been floating around for move than five years now. None of which would, in and of themselves, address the real issue of affordable medical care. As an example, you point out the flaw in positioning a HSA as being the magic fix to affordability. Since the account has to be funded from somewhere and you can easily exhaust all funds in it with just one or two expensive medical procedures, it is not a real solution. I also see he envisions the expansion of Medicaid at the state level as the primary means to provide healthcare to the growing percentage of people unable to afford health insurance. This is of course the solution of the Democrats, as this is what is already being done under Obamacare in record numbers across the country. Dump an ever-growing percentage of the population into Medicaid, that can’t afford the insurance costs, and let the states cope with the unaffordable costs. That’s just playing a shell game with the American public, as they still foot the bill one way or another. For those unfamiliar with Medicaid and think it is just like Medicare, they are in for a rude awakening when it comes to quality of doctors, level of patient care and treatment, and patient outcomes. Anyway, I too look forward to seeing more of the “nitty-gritty” details as time progresses. The level of detail provided for any of the solutions on his official web site remains severely lacking to say the least, but as you say he said he was open for suggestions.

Hi PAULE. Yeah, but HOW do we get anyone to suggest reinstating the old healthcare coverage? AMAC hasn’t taken that stand and unless thousands contact their representatives to tell them this is what we want, they don’t listen. So far all any of them say is repeal and replace. Trump’s version is a little closer (maybe) but not good enough as I can see right now.

Hi HAM,

I’ve told my Congressman, who is a member of the House Freedom Caucus (the folks that pushed to get Boehner kicked out as Speaker) and he agrees that repealing Obamacare and trying to put back the original system would be the best solution. Then a separate stand-alone solution for the folks with pre-existing conditions, that doesn’t impact the 85 to 90 percent of the people who were perfectly happy with the old model and could afford it. The problem, as he explains it and I tend to agree with him, is most of Congress, Republicans included, like the notion of the federal government calling all the shots and controlling everything. More opportunity to pull in more campaign re-election funds from the all insurance companies and major medical groups (hospitals, medical device makers, etc.) in exchange for promises to not regulate them even more or publicly vilify them to justify exacting government fines, like they’ve done with the banks, for whatever they can dream up. That is why the majority of solutions being floated are centered around “repeal and replace”. His blunt response to me was that the American people have to decide, one way or the other, if they really want a form of government centered around the Constitution or if they merely want a government that hands out favors and special treatment to a variety of groups in exchange for returning the same big government politicians to office over and over again. So far, a lot of the people talk about the desire for the former, but they keep right on voting for Congressmen and Senators who promise the latter.

As for AMAC, they are not interested in a simple repeal of Obamacare. They are pushing their own version of “repeal and replace”, which is a tweaked version of Obamacare with many of the same players involved. So don’t expect AMAC to champion our preferred, more market-oriented solution. AMAC sells insurance or act as the middleman to facilitate insurance sales.

As for Trump’s version, at least based on the vague information he’s put out so far, don’t expect anything massively different from what we have now. You’ll notice he basically tosses the ball to Congress to come up with a plan and since a majority of Congress is on the “repeal and replace” kick, you’re not likely to see a return to the old system.

The way I see it is if the Republican congressmen/women want to remain in office they all need to understand just how angry their constituents are about a number of things. One of those is having a healthcare system they can afford and which they can get the SAME medical care and doctors they liked and had before. I hope none of them are so stupid as to misjudge the mood of the people right now. It appears our representatives have forgotten who they work for.

Yes, that sums it up nicely HAM. The few real Constitutional conservatives serving in Congress (the House Freedom Caucus and a few members of the Senate…about 50 in total out of 535 members of Congress) already understand that and they are the ones actively pushing back, not only against the Socialist Democrats, but also against a large number of what I call RINO Republicans. Many of these RINOs who think a tweak here or there on a few things will keep the people back home pacified. Well that’s not going to work anymore. Which is something the vast majority of Congress, as a whole, hasn’t come to grips with yet.

I’ve seen this all played out before and it won’t end well. If the “go along to get along crowd” in Washington don’t realize their positions are all in jeopardy, if they don’t begin doing what the people want real fast, events may spiral out of control in ways they haven’t dreamed of yet.

I agree Marti. I am voting for Cruz for the same reason. However, he has not stated his plan for healthcare after repealing it. I do want to see details before voting in the general election and also his plan for SS & Medicare for the future and current recipients. We have been treated like 3rd class citizens since Obama took office and more is coming under Obamacare. The older you get, the less medical care Ibamacare is going to provide especially if you require a lot of medical care. However, our “leaders” in the WH, Congress and federal employees have the best insurance coverage available.

He has stated many times that he thinks the government should pay for everyone’s health care! I heard him say we should have medicare for everyone. If you want a two-year degreed nurse to be
Your primary care practicioner , that’s the best way to do it! The best and brightest will not go into medical training for the pittance that medicare pays. We will have doctors from other countries who
May or may not be trained to the extent that our native doctors are. Our state of the art equipment
(MRI AND CT SCANNERS) will become less and less available and we will have to wait for months
For these diagnostic tests, like they do in countries like Canada.
It would save Mr. Trump a lot of money if we taxpayers provided the insurance for his thousands and thousands of employees!

Rik and Ron Seamans, along with others, have all week espoused on how no matter what, we should not vote for Donald. Do they then mean that we should not vote at all, or worse vote for the democrat, Hillary or Bernie, or at this point whoever is the democrat nominee? My point has been all along, that anyone, along with others, is that we can certainly not afford 4 more or worse 8 years of democrats who have been hijacked by the communist left, so I will vote for the Republican nominee again no matter what, or who he is. I don’t love Donald, or Ted or Marco, but I will vote for any of them over the dems, or not voting at all. Third party votes will assure our loss, so don’t be fooled by that argument, that is exactly what the left wants. Ron and Rik attack all of my points except VOTE no matter what, because we can not afford to lose, for some moral high point, which they think they have decided should be the new standard for voting at all. Rik keeps expounding that Donald can not win, as does Ron, so therefore we should not vote for him, or at all! Some of us stayed home the last time and look who won a second term. FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE, anyone is better than Bernie or Hillary, which has been my point along with other people who do not want to see any more communist laws implemented. Yes, Ron, I will “ad hominem” you to my dying breath, because I am really starting to think that you are another plant like Paulo, who tries to convert us to the left way of thinking. Be honest, Ron, do you really think we should not vote because we don’t like your candidate? If we do not vote at all, we allow the democrats to win again. Yes Donald is abrasive and a lot of other things, as are all of the other HUMANS, running for the nomination, but if we elect him and hold him accountable, he will not have any choice,, but to do what we elect him to do, and I emphasize hold him accountable, which we can do with letters and e-mails. That has been proven in the last few years when politicians get bombarded with correspondence from their constituents. Voting is not only our constitutional right but our duty. We have faced major problems in our history before, but to not vote at all, is to give in to the left and allow the further degradation of our country. AD HOMINEM Ron, show me a better solution. Address my main point of VOTE, as is our right, no matter what. If you do not believe that, then you should be “AD HOMINEM” ized. Please address my main point that no matter what, we can not lose the White House again, for any, “integrity”, “ad Hominem” or hatred that we may hold for any candidate. Ron don’t cherry pick sentences, in my posts, explain how my main point “of we cannot lose the White House”, is solved by your theory of not voting at all if your approved candidate is not nominated, and allowing the democrats to win again. And yes, Ron, I will “ad Hominem” you when you propose anything that is against democracy, such as do not vote for my candidate because I do not like him! You are the left when you say that!

If we have Cruz as a candidate, I believe that he will appeal to many of the Reagan democrats. There are many disillusioned Dems as well as disillusioned
Republicans. Polls show that Cruz would beat either of the democrats offered up at this point, but Hillary beat Trump in 8 out of 10 polls!
I think Trump’s appeal is just because of his T.V. stardom. He’s all about Trump! Has he ever gotten an edifice constructed without his name in huge letters on top?
Why won’t he release his tax records? All the other candidates have. And why have his
Tax returns been audited for so many years?
It’s my opinion that many democrats are voting for trump in the open primaries, whereas
Cruz come out on top in closed primaries. I don’t want democrats choosing the republican
Candidate.

I haven’t been able to vote FOR a candidate since Reagan. I have just voted for the less of two evils. If it’s Trump V. Hillary, I won’t even have that choice as I think that they are equally evil! Trump is as conservative as LBJ, and we see where that got us! I have heard Cruz suggest that we be able to buy health insurance from companies in other states, etc.,
Like car insurance. We could have choices as to whether we want full coverage or just
Coverage for hospitalization and catastrophic coverage. I liked the way we did it before. There are now people who could well afford to pay their own premiums being forced into
Medicaid based on family size alone. If we decide to sell our homes, we will have to pay
(For the time being) $3800.00 tax to help fund Obamacare. Social security tax was never supposed to exceed 1%! It won’t be long until they discover that they can increase that…
why should we expect to reap the rewards of investing in our own homes when others need it so much more!? Look at what they’ve done with gasoline taxes! They know that most people have to buy gas in order to work, so we can’t get around it!
Any time the government gets involved with anything, it’s going to cost more. After all, they
Have to pay all those bureaucrats to make sure we conform!

People, Super Tuesday is over, what did we learn? … We learned that Trump won 7 of 11 primaries BUT, only with an average of 35% of the votes. … What does that tell you? … It tells you that 65% voted AGAINST him and that HIS national disapproval rating of 60% will ONLY GUARANTEE him losing against Hillary. This Election should mean a Republican President, they will blow it again with a Trump nomination. … I AGREE with the anger, we ALL WANT A CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE. … Who fits that best? … The ORIGINAL ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE IS TED CRUZ. … If the Establishment Republicans hate him so much it’s because he spoke out against their Rino “Go along to get along” votes with the Liberals. Common sense says that Ted Cruz is who we should be supporting!!!

Ok, Rik we get your dislike for Trump. But if he is the nominee, should we then vote for him as President, or Hillary, Bernie, or not vote at all, and let the continue the program of destruction of the USA?

Ralph, I’ve already said that if Trump is the nominee that I WILL vote for him though I feel I have to ask God’s forgiveness in doing so. Because yes, Hillary would probably be worse! … Though, if 65% of Republicans don’t like him, I do expect Hillary to win. … I just don’t trust Trump the Great negotiator, because as someone earlier had said, “a leopard doesn’t change his spots”.

Rik, as I have stated before, I am not a fan of Trump. I am also tired of Washington insiders and no longer trust any of them. I don’t trust Donald either. My point has always been throughout the last 4 days, no matter how distasteful it is, we can not afford to let the Dems in for 4-8 more years or we will truly lose the USA. I couldn’t understand your comments because you are very level headed and I usually agree with what you say. You did a great job when you saw Paulo for what he is, told him so, and he left for awhile, but I see this week he is back. Maybe he did not learn his lesson well enough. It is sad when we have so many candidates that seem to be shoved down our throats, but I guess it is just a sign of the times. I fear for my children and grandchildren!

People, how do we know that if Trump becomes President that he wouldn’t put both Obama and Hillary on the Supreme Court? … After all, Trump WAS A LIBERAL for 40 years before his sudden epiphany to become a Conservative “to Conserve” … Has he given us a guarantee that he wouldn’t do that? … Just food for thought.

I am still making up my mind as to which candidate I will vote for as I like certain things from each of them. But I do know one thing for certain, I will vote Republican regardless of who wins the Primaries. I am hearing too many people saying that they will not vote for this one or that one. Let’s not be stupid again like the last two elections. Personally, I felt both elections were voting for the lesser of two evils, but I still voted Republican. And even if it was for the lesser of two evils we saw what happened because of the voters who said they would not vote for McCain or Romney, and those people are the sole reason for the current condition of our country. You say you don’t like what Obama has done and will continue to do for the next ten or so months, it will be many times worse with Clinton. As members of AMAC we are all old enough to remember what Hillary was like during her husband’s administration, and we saw what she did, or didn’t do, as Sec, of State.
My biggest concern is for my children and grandchildren and I want to see them with a better life than we had. I will vote for whoever the Republican candidate is because I don’t want to see my kids having to live one more day under a looney, left-wing nut like we have had for the past seven years. And if we don’t turn it around this election I don’t know if we will ever be able to.

Right on John. For those prominent people who have come out in the media stating they will not vote if Trump is the Republican nominee, I suggest they tell that personally to a military Gold Star family; their now deceased relative did what the military does…give all the right to vote even if it means giving the ultimate sacrifice. To vote in our country is not only a right and privilege, but an obligation. When I hear people say to me they won’t vote I tell them they therefore don’t have skin in the game and should just keep their thoughts to themselves. These same people say Trump is teaching our children bad behavior (he does need to clean it up), but I say to them “What’s worse than teaching your children not to vote?” Their statements are irresponsible and inexcusable. Remember that a no vote for the Republican nominee is a vote for Hillary and when she’s through, your grandchildren won’t have as good a life as we’ve been given by all those who sacrificed since the Revolutionary War to date. By the way, I had high level security clearances during my military career that were as high as those she has compromised. Had I done what she has done with her emails, they would have had me sentenced to Leavenworth Prison in less than six months. God help us elect the right president or we will go the way of the Roman Empire.

I am an Independent Conservative and agree with what Mr. Russo and many others have said. If people will remember, Mr. Trump was the first to sling garbage and his temperament is like a junk yard dog. He has many similarities of President Obama as to patting himself on the back and using the word “I” and “people love me”. We possibly could get more jobs back in the U.S. but that would be the extent of it with Mr. Trump. When you listen to him speak, he is for himself and winning. He doesn’t have the peoples best interest in his heart. At this point when he comes on TV or President Obama–I turn them off. I can’t stand to hear them jabber any more. He hasn’t spoke solutions–just generalities–such as we’ll make America great again or the country has been losing in all aspects. Those generalities are fine for some if they really aren’t interested in improving the country but for me the candidates need to be specific. We need a true Conservative in the White House to bring our country back from the tragic down spiral that has been going on for the past seven years. The only two candidates I trust at this point are Ted Cruz and Dr. Carson. Donald Trump claims that people lie but they have the facts and videos in his own words to prove it. He almost acts like Hillary Clinton when addressing the proof. I understand people are upset so am I but people who really want solutions to take place for the problems we have do not jump on a band wagon of “hope and change” or any other promise without thinking hard about it, investigating all the possibilities and referring back to the Constitution as to what our country is really about. Think don’t just react. The morals of our country have been going downhill for years as evidenced by the movies and TV shows today, as well as out of wedlock babies, language that is used, and the lack of respect for others. A hand shake or a person’s word used to mean something. Today, a person cannot count on that word or handshake except for a very few people. It makes me sad to see how the candidates are fighting. This is not a game like “The Apprentice”. We don’t need a celebrity in the White House–we need someone who will take the job seriously and get us back on the right track.

Very well said on all points Jan. We finally have an actual true Constitutional conservative since Reagan, with a actual track record of standing up and defending the Constitutional principles of our nation, and it seems a lot of people could care less. It seems that those of us who advocate doing some real research into the candidates and their proposed solutions, if they actually have any (slogans are NOT a solutions plan), and thinking about what the results would be is in the minority here. Many appear to be making up their minds by watching a few TV ads or listening to a few of the cartoon debates, which are designed by the liberal moderators to be circular firing squads for all the GOP candidates. Some cite they listened to a few candidate speeches, but those are written largely by professional staff writers, so they hardly reflect how a candidate would really address an issue. Hardly the proper way to understand whether the candidate is serious or has any real potential to address the many problems we now have. For that matter, hardly a way to even determine if the candidate is a Constitutional or fiscal conservative, which is what we desperately need, or a Progressive Democrat pretending to be “conservative”, as Trump is, to get the GOP nomination.

By the way, the reason Trump shares many of the similarities of both President Obama and Hillary Clinton is that until about 24 months ago, he was a registered Democrat and had been actively supporting both Democrat causes and political campaigns (Obama in 2012, Hillary in 2008, Chuck Schumer, etc. It’s a long list.) since at least the mid 1970s when I started following him and his business moves in the New York metropolitan area. So it’s not unexpected he uses the same tactics and shares the same demeanor as a Progressive Democrat, because until about 24 months ago that’s what he was. Trump became a registered Republican for the same reason that Michael Bloomberg switched from life-long Democrat to Republican before running for Mayor of NYC. It was to win an election. Once Bloomberg won, he started pushing many of the Progressive favorites as food control (limit salt, limit sugar, limit soda size, expand government reach into a myriad of areas, etc.). After leaving office, because the people wouldn’t allow him to violate the term limits provision of the office a second time, he switched right back to being a register Democrat and has been pushing his gun control agenda nation-wide. You would think this would be a cautionary tale for all those jumping aboard the Trump bandwagon, but no one seems to care. Never let facts get in the way of a fanatic following, which is what we seem to have. Truly frightening for what this will do for what is left of this country.

I stand with Jan. Only differ slightly in that I feel Rubio is “part of the problem” he cannot be trusted to carry out the voter’s wish.For him to function,and he is not alone,there has to be the designed-in give and take between the parties.Unfortunately,this has led to blurring the lines of difference between parties from the voters perspective. Having heard Dr Carson expound on his views,I find myself liking his plans.I am doubtful about his ability stand against all the fearful career politicians who have been clucking and scratching for example, since Mr Trump first announced his intention.We are never given the “perfect candidate”Unfortunately, I don’t think Dr Carson is strong enough and Mr Trump is not afraid to lead from a position of power, whether real or perceived.I would give strong admonishment to the all those who debase noble politics with ugly lies,innuendo name calling and gutter tactics.

Fellow citizens, we reviewed the well drafted and passionate contributions offered by so many. Perhaps our views will be dismissed, indeed others may choose to link them to a simplistic comment unworthy of further consideration, while others still may ignore what we believe is most obvious at least to us. We declare here that there isn’t a doubt in our mind that but one candidate deserves our full throated support and until now we have withheld offering it in writing. America is in serious trouble far worse than many voters grasp. We believe someone we choose must reflect principles like those offered by Reagan in 1980. In truth however, we actually require someone even more conservative, more principled more frugal than even Reagan namely, Coolidge. This mostly ignored, forgotten, dismissed President is unfortunately now needed far more than even when he had to step up to take the job when the then President died.
You all have heard of the roaring twenties-Coolidge policies created them. Few know of the depression which occurred in the early 1920’s. The policies Coolidge insisted upon returned our economy to an unheard of prosperity within 18 short months, perhaps the greatest recovery in our history. The candidate most like Coolidge isn’t Trump, or Rubio, Carson or Kasich, IT IS UNEQUIVOCALLY TED CRUZ.
We are personally repelled by some well intended comments above claiming Cruz is great but he cannot win? They are 100% correct ASSUMING ALL THOSE WHO BELIEVE THAT REFUSE TO VOTE FOR HIM.
Which candidate will enforce the existent law regarding all issues-Cruz. Which candidate will immediately begin to work to eliminate the IRS, Department of Education, the Commerce Department amongst others-CRUZ!! No other candidate has the principled, ethical, Constitutional integrity to achieve a radical return to limited government which MUST BE achieved if America is to survive. The alternative candidates at best will slow our demise, extend our life but not restore the full power our founders intended back to WE THE PEOPLE.
Ted Cruz will keep his word, will not cave or buckle under pressure, will honor his commitments, never back down, select the absolute best supreme court nominee’s (there will be more than one required), protect all of your individual rights as espoused by the BILL OF RIGHTS and the CONSTITUTION. Is he perfect, no, is he electable yes, IF THAT IS we the people grasp the simple truth that he alone is precisely what is needed-demanded in fact not by my words but by the very reality we now find ourselves facing. We believe there is no other candidate capable of achieving what is required to not just save America but RESTORE AMERICA. If we the people choose to elect Ted Cruz, he will become President. Those who say he isn’t electable are buying the propaganda put forth by those who fear his policies and grit not because they wish to win. It is our country, it is our Republic, and as Benjamin Franklin said to the inquiring woman outside the Constitutional Convention, when asked what have you given us Mr. Franklin? He mused a Republic Madam, IF YOU CAN KEEP IT!
So we humbly say to all contributors, readers, CAN YOU KEEP YOUR REPUBLIC? It is our heartfelt prayer than we the people can and will choose the only person capable of restoring Constitutional limited government-MR. TED CRUZ.
Thank you to all those who are reading this, God bless you all, F. Michael Russo Jr. (12th generation American patriot)

Just a quick question. Say Rubio wins, but he completely caves to the establishment GOP, as he did as soon as he got to the U.S. Senate in his first term and then works with the GOP establishment, which is why they have selected him as their fallback selection now that Bush is gone, to enact comprehensive immigration reform (amnesty by another name) and the rest of the RINO / Progressive Democrat agenda. Which is pretty much what his first term record in the U.S. Senate is. Sure he made some pretty speeches, but at the end of the day, he voted the way McConnell wanted him to. So if he does the same thing again as POTUS, will that be OK with you? If so, what exactly will you have won, since that amounts to “business as usual” RINO politics? Thanks.

Paul,
Its very easy to bash a Senator until you’re in his shoes. I could bash Ted Cruz because no one wants to work with him and has very few endorsements (Senators and Congressmen you call RINOS) but the reality is this is our governmental system and we have to work together. Rubio isn’t happy with the immigration work in the Senate under the Democrats rule, but did you want them to totally exclude Republicans just like they did in Obamacare? At least he tried and knows the issues and problems and may be able to help outsmart them, like he did with the “NO bailout” legislation for insurance companies under Obamacare….
The difference here, and the answer to your question is that until you can find a POTUS who is close enough to your values (not perfect, but close) who can work across the aisles (which we haven’t had in 7 years) and WIN, don’t you also win? Why wouldn’t you want to give Rubio the benefit of your doubt and support him? We can pick Trump, who is the REAL RINO/Democrat or we can all rally around the candidate who looks best after these next races and debates. I would gladly switch to Cruz if he wins over Rubio, giving Cruz the benefit of my doubt, hoping he will learn that in any business or government, although you are a leader, you must be able to work with a team holding a variety of positions in order to be successful. (go Cruz or Rubio!)

I am NOT bashing Rubio. Stating his record is NOT bashing him. I simply asked a question to understand to what level you value “winning” over the prospect of abandoning the principles voters in Florida thought he had when they sent him to the Senate in 2012. After all, there are a lot of Senate Republicans who magically become “conservatives” (the term has almost no meaning the way it is consistently applied incorrectly) when they are up for re-election every six years. But as soon as they are re-elected they go right back to being RINOs that consistently cave under every threat of a government shutdown from the Democrats. That is what we have now, so we need a POTUS who won’t play that game anymore. Otherwise, what is the purpose of opposing the Socialist (oops Progressive) Democrats? Anyway, thank you for answering the question. It helps me understand what the motivations are for the various candidates from a number of voters out there.

I believe Rubio is principled and can name many Senators and Congressmen like him who would have loved to operate much differently but their hands were tied. First, under the Democratic rule and their manipulation through the media and now under the new rules of executive order.

What don’t you understand about Trump? … He has a national disapproval rating of 60%, Hillary has a national disapproval rating of 52%. That means Hillary wins. … Even this week’s AMAC poll’s results show that 62% don’t think he is Presidential. If Trump gets the nomination, he will get hammered by the Liberal media. His defeat not only will destroy the Republican Party, it will destroy this country and generations will know only the servitude of Communism.

“Stemberger: 3 Questions Every Voter Should Ask Before Supporting Trump” and some facts the mainstream media is salivating over….

If elected, Trump would be the first president to:

-Be married three times to different women, leaving each for the next woman.
-Be proud of his sexually liberalities, openly stating in his book “Think Big: Make it Happen in Business and Life” that he has had sex with with some of the “top women in the world.”
-Build and own casinos, including the first American casino ever to have a strip club that allows lap dancing and an all-male revue club for women.
-Regularly use the f-word in public speeches along with other obscenities so vulgar network television would be required to bleep out these words to avoid violating Federal Communications Commission rules.
-State publicly that he has never asked for God’s (or anyone else’s), forgiveness and that HE DOESNT FORGIVE.
-Have said about his daughter on that “if Ivanka were not my daughter, I would be dating her.”
-Give America a first lady who has posed in the nude.
-Use bankruptcy laws four times for failed business dealings.
-Openly ADVOCATE REVENGE, “as viciously and as violently as you can.”

The republicans always send a gentleman (McCain, Romney) to the street fight called the presidential election, and they lose! The only time republicans act like street fighters is when they attack each other. Particularly the establishment attacking outsiders (Palin, Trump). Give me the street fighter named Trump. The so called conservatives we have in the congress have given Obama everything he wants while telling us (before being elected) they would stop him. If it wasn’t for Trump the topics we would be talking about now would be global warming, free birth control, war on women, etc. Time for an “outsider” to sit in the oval office. If he doesn’t work out vote someone else in next time. If we can survive eight years with Obama, four years with (even a bad) Trump would be a cake walk!
