Iowa did do that, but now we have to deal with the increased potential of a Cruz nomination. This fellow wants to slap a huge tax increase on middle income seniors, a general flat income tax, and a 19 per cent Federal sales tax on the country. The result of all this would be to really damage the ability of seniors to save for retirement, cause retail sales to plunge, and significantly raise the overall cost of living for millions of Americans.

Now that we've made progress with Dump the Trump we need to turn to

Glad we agree for the most part and I respect your right to disagree on the these two points.

I find Cruz far more scarier than Trump. Both are a losing option, but I think Cruz would usher in WW3 with his carpet bombs and rightwing radicalism.

That's exactly what we need to do! But Cruz is very sneaky and crafty, and we must now force him to come clean with the American people and acknowledge his plans to raise taxes on our middle class senior citizens, and to also impose a whopping 19 Per cent Federal sales tax in order to supplement the revenue that will be lost after his flat tax goes into effect.

I'd bet the voters at the Iowa caucus didn't have a clue about his above plans when they voted for him.

More importantly, at least for now, is the fact that Trump's seeming aura of invincibility has finally been shattered and the way paved for a good compromise republican candidate to emerge such as Marco Rubio.

Absolutely true. The idea he proposes to carpet bomb the M.E. will not only fail in its objectives, it will only strengthen the resolve of the terrorists he wishes to destroy. In any case, that kind of approach certainly didn't work in Vietnam. And I seriously doubt that we would have the support of our allies to such an approach either. Doesn't Cruz realize that we actually need many of the people he wants to carpet bomb to join us in a united coalition in order to defeat the radical jihadists?

Donald Trump sure would be the worst president we ever had. But now after Iowa we will need to "lose the Cruz." Would you believe a 19 percent Federal Sales Tax in combination with plans to significantly increase the income tax on middle income seniors?

Even worse is that Cruz hid the above plans from the American people and from the voters in Iowa as well. How disingenuous is that?

And he also wants to carpet bomb the M.E. and destroy any chance of getting some of those people to join us in a global coalition to defeat Isis. Doing such a heinous deed would only increase the jihadists' efforts to recruit even more home grown terrorists among us right here at home.

Aside from the fact that carpet bombing an entire region out of existence is inhuman, that tactic didn't work in Vietnam, and it wouldn't work now in the M.E. either.

Obama will never get the separation of powers clause right but he doesn't respect same. A good background in business doesn't give Trump an understanding of how Congress works.

Agree 100% with the first.

Not so much with the last. Congress works pretty much the same way any big board of a business does. Tweaking power, prestige and egos to get hat you want. Would be nice if it didn't, but...

Lets work hard to hold Congress to account. The American people deserve more from their representatives than a body that works like a large board of directors on a self designed corporation out only to maximize their own profit and gain. They are supposed to be there to look after our interests rather than their own! That's why we elected them!

Contrary to popular understanding and opinion, you don't need to know very much to be a leader at all!!!

Here's what you need:

1) a loud commanding deep voice
2) ability to read a teleprompter well
3) be tall
4) be willing to not go against your bosses (shadow g-v). (jfk tried that)
5) act like a leader and have a little bit of knowledge about the world.

You don't need to know much about forign policy, about international trade agreements, economics etc etc. None of that matters. What matter is VERY SIMPLE: Can you read a teleprompter well??? That's the most important thing.

Because they don't decide jack sht!!! Big corp's and the real power T. BE decide the bigger agenda. Your job as leader is to then act like it was your choice and take the blame for it later after it all goes to hell, which it always well. (there's never any good decisions made) only bad ones like: wars, added ways to steal money from the masses, added ways to kill the masses and enslave them etc etc.

Like seriously, you actually think he needs to know anything? No he doesn't. He's a spokesmodel, nothing more.

a reply to: kendix1960 I love Trump and hope he wins. If any of the others win, nothing will change. Trumps accomplishments are more than all the candidates combined, I like the fact he is an outsider. Just my opinion and i respect yours, of course we won't know which is right till later.

Oh I agree. But we don't elect most of them. Most just stay until they want to retire.

What was the old saying to get a Senator out you needed a live boy or a dead girl? Of course now even one of those is gone from being used.

Thank you for your courteous reply, Maxen2004. I respect your right to your views and opinions and appreciate that you also respect my views. But I simply wish to point out that Trump's accomplishments have been in business and even there he has less than an stellar record. He has declared bankruptcy ten times regarding his casinos, each time throwing hundreds of people out of work. His explanation is that everyone does it and it's just business. I wonder how the folks who lost their jobs feel about that.

In addition, if he had invested the $200,000,000 he inherited from his father in the S & P 500 35 years ago, he would have a good deal more than the 10 billion dollars he claims is his present net worth today. In other words, he isn't as great a business man as he claims to be! There is also some dispute as to that net worth with some estimating same as being closer to $4.5 billion dollars. (wish I had that kind of money).

My major objections to Trump, of course, is the fact that, again in my opinion, he is a zenophobic megalomaniac and potential right wing dictator with few if any viable policies or solutions to the many serious issues facing our country today, and that he has little or no respect from other global leaders.

I hope we don't have to find out later which one of us is correct. There is way too much at stake.

Sounds like an apt description of the Trumpus except he is also a buffoon and an inarticulate boor with no need to read a teleprompter. No author of a canned speech worth his salt would ever write the words Trump speaks all the time. A few examples include "something bad is coming out of there" and "everybody loves me" or "She wasn't being very nice to me", or "You're Fired."

A leader Sir Donald surely is not! Except that he might lead us to World War 3 given his inability to earn the respect of world leaders combined with a total ignorance of the complexities of international affairs.

Although he leads in the polls, there is still time for the voters in the coming primaries to see the light and send this man a message to go back to his hotels and casinos.

Now even the Pope is critical of Trump. The Pontiff says Sir Donald doesn't express Christian values when he advocates a wall at the Mexican border. Trump, of course, says he'd bring Christianity back to America. This buffoon just can't keep his foot out of his ever growing big mouth and doesn't even try to hide his zenophobia and racism.

It still isn't too late to deny the republican nomination for president to Donald Trump. Kasich and Rubio should hang in there until the convention this Summer and do all they can to prevent Trump from acquiring the necessary majority of delegates needed for a first ballot victory. Then with subsequent ballots when delegates are no longer obligated to vote for Trump, a suitable compromise candidate may emerge, secure the nomination, and unite the party.

The above is the only feasible way to defeat Hillary Clinton in the general election on 11/8/2016 and, at the same time, avoid a dictator from becoming President.

The above would also potentially save the country from four more years of Obama like policies, which is what we'll get if Hillary wins.

The key is to defeat Trump in the winner take all primaries in Florida and in California.

a reply to: [post=20438154 ]maxen 2004:

Mitt Romney delivered a dynamite speech on 3/3/16 blasting the candidacy of Donald Trump and clearly setting forth the reasons why the Republican Party must NOT nominate "The Donald" for President of the United States. Gov. Romney also advised that the other candidates remain tn the race and block Trump's nomination by winning the winner take all primaries in Ohio, Florida, (and I'll add California to that list as the biggest winner take all state of them all).

Romney suggested Kasich, or Rubio as the best candidates.( I disagree with Romney regarding Ted. Cruz of Texas as a sutable candidate, however). But I'd surely support Romney as a great candidate as well should the convention draft him as the compromise candidate in Cincinnati, Ohio this summer. Any one of these candidates would beat Hillary Clinton in November. But the most important thing is to "Dump the Trump" once and for all to avoid a fascist dictator in our country!!

a reply to: maxen2004:

Romney's recent speech exposing Trump for the phony, fraud, and megalomaniac that he is doesn't appear to have made quite as much of an impact toward slowing down his march to the nomination as we had hoped, but the latest delegate count does indicate Trump is still not on a pace to clinch going into the convention in July. If we reach the said convention and still find him a bit short of majority, I don't think he'll get the necessary delegate total on the first ballot. In that case, they will probably turn to a compromise candidate who is presently not in the race at all. Maybe Paul Ryan, speaker of the House and a good moderate. Lets hope so!
