I think the people of America, and the media, need to put this has-been on permanent ignore.


He's already lost once, in an election he should have easily won. When the GOP went back to "study" the election to see what went wrong, one of the conclusions of the study was that the GOP should let the people decide what candidate they wanted. Obviously, the GOP has not assimilated or learned anything from their own study.


That's because what their electorate wants is quite frankly, insane. That's why the GOP is picking their own, their party has a whole bunch of people who show up to vote that effectively want anarchy. It's just not feasible.


Their own study told them that their practice of indulging in the good old boy network and choosing who was going to run was a failed policy that led to their defeat. McCain was a good old boy and a failed candidate. Romney was a good old boy and a failed candidate who had plenty of ammunition to win, but did not exert the effort. The GOP has nominated failure after failure. The electorate is excited again and turn out for the GOP is in record numbers, exactly the opposite of last time. Now it's the Dems who are suffering from low turnout.

And what does the GOP do? Sabotage their own process and tell the voters they are "insane" for liking someone who is not a GOP team player. In other words, they are saying, once again, "Hey GOP voters, you may as well stay home and not vote because we are going to choose someone we want, not who you want."

That's the message they are saying as they continue an all-out war against the Dems? Nope. Against Trump. And if they continue this they will have bloodied themselves to a pulp by the time the General Election approaches, and you, too, can enjoy another Clinton presidency.

Given GOP behavior one wonders if they even want to win. They are surely doing everything in their power not to. And of they really do stick Romney back in there I believe we will see the dissolution of the Republican Party.

We can't forget ole Mitch McConnell now can we?



McConnell has reportedly advised Republicans that they can run ads against Trump to create separation from the polarizing GOP frontrunner if they believe it can help their reelection efforts.

The majority leader is also preparing to pitch the Senate as a necessary check to an inevitable Hillary Clinton presidency if Trump is the GOP’s nominee, according to the Times.



McConnell Trump: McConnell Would Prefer Hillary Over Trump

It's okay Mitch, you can retain your power by struggling to survive just like the rest of us! The most deceitful welfare in the world is the money stolen from hard working tax payers so those in charge of taxing them can live like Kings and Queens!

I am not a Trump supporter. I do not like Trump.

If the GOP does this, I will campaign for Donald Trump.

I like him just for how he pulled out the fakes!

People are threatening to leave the country if he is elected! Is that a bad thing against him or spoiled rotten pansies that are too damned stupid to realize we still have a house and senate put in place to put a balance for or against his wishes? Not to mention a Supreme Court who would have the final say?

Funny how people get bashed for posting doom porn on ATS, yet people who claim to be highly educated find themselves on a soap box reveling in their intelligence calling those who support Trump idiots and because of Trump they are thinking of leaving the country? How educated are these people? Really??????

Even if Trump is elected we still have the same corrupt bought and paid for globalists representing us! Sheesh......

Tip: Start a company building safe spaces! They are not just for spoiled rotten college students anymore!

Perhaps, I suppose I just see it different. I don't agree with politicians who attempt to answer the question of government inefficiency by weakening the government and making whatever they don't remove even less capable than it previously was. I want a strong government full of capable individuals. I believe Trump is a competent manager, though I disagree with him being in charge for other reasons, but of the 6 remaining candidates he's #3 on my list (behind Sanders and Kasich).

When it comes to Anarchy, it's a proposition that mostly exists on the right. The right/left dichotomy is mainly based on society vs individuals, and the right placing more value on individualism doesn't like the concept of government which makes choices for society. Not all on the right believe that, but a major faction of the GOP voting base does.

As far as BLM goes, it's pretty much textbook protesting. You're supposed to be annoying when protesting something, and they do have a legitimate gripe.

This is actually my biggest concern with Trump. He has bought several members of Congress in the past, and nothing would stop him from doing so as President. I am extremely apprehensive to hand executive power over to someone who has the personal resources to also control congress. It would be like making David Kock or George Sooros President. It's a very bad idea.

So you admitted to seeing the problem with our so called "Representative Government" but yet you blame those smart enough to game the system versus demanding those the people elect to honor their oath?

Would you allow a crack addict to babysit your children? Then why allow a prostitute for money create laws to make your life more difficult?

Why do people hate Trump so much for coming out saying the obvious? He admitted he used his money to buy whores, yet people still don't get it?

All I see is bunch of people wanting to vote for the next prostitute who they believe will deliver them from evil instead of cutting the head off the snake that due to his/her power can own another four years of being a serf overlord.


Are the Koch Brothers funding Trump? Is George Soros funding Trump? Funny how those who vocally hate the 1% seem to be the ones foolish enough to support the movements that the 1% relies on.....

Trying to disable government isn't a solution. Government provides a very useful service, and you can look all over the world there are many examples of competent functioning governments. If you vote for people who run on a platform of making government worse, that is precisely what you're going to get and the whole thing becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. I would rather vote for people who legitimately want to make government better like Sanders.

so that he has a chance to slither in there and steal the nomination on the convention floor!


S&F for that alone ... ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Romney's a worthless POS. Such a liberal whelp the state of Massatwosheits took him in as governor.

Somebody needs to come in and completely clean out the GOP. I'd willingly go through every news article to list anyone described as moderate by word or deed. Pretty sure the names Romney, Rubio, Ryan and McCain would appear at the top.

ETA: And you look at that dirtbag and see him sporting a fake tan just like the one Boehner had.

Don't put words in my mouth! I never said disable government. Emotional BS doesn't fly with me.

Maybe that's our problem, too many people depend on it? Don't worry, that isn't your fault and it sure as hell wasn't by accident!

It's good to depend on government. There is no other organization that's capable of efficiently funding research, enforcing consumer protections, making sure products aren't harmful, improving persons lives, and defending citizens.

Notice to Republican Party: you've had Eight YEARS to mount an effective opposition and field a "Party" candidate. You suck at both! Now when you actually have a candidate (Trump) who is bringing people to the party, you want to roll out a failed and flawed Romney like he's some wise saviour? If Romney had shown half the vitriol he has for Trump against Obama, he would have been President. Honestly I think Romney hates Trump more then he hates Obama. That, in a nutshell is why the Republicans are such a mess. The Republicans have ran two "Party Choice" candidates in the last two Presidential elections........ How did that turn out for them. Clueless.

The corrupt Romney campaigning staff doesn't care if there's vote for him if they are running the GOP again. In their arrogance they don't seem to understand is that the last time they screwed over the voter base, losing confidence in people who were voting GOP, of the damage that was done. Though I do agree, slightly so far with others, it might be what they want, a win for Hillary- ie as she'll be The Underdog.

Are Republicans and Romney really stupid enough to think we would vote for him...especially after they co-opted the democratic process? They are going to be in for a surprise if they think they can win with that kind of crap.


Yep, they are that stupid.

They will be in for a surprise.

If they deny Trump the nomination, if he has the first round count needed...you'll see Trump run as an independent. They actually see this as acceptable, because they THINK Trump's absence above Republicans on the ticket will keep the other Republican candidates safe.

They are wrong.

If they deny an honestly won primary, many of Trump's supporters will not only vote for an independent Trump, but they'd also vote AGAINST any other GOP candidate on the ballot, just on principle. That will be their rude awakening.

It's why they are pulling out all the stops to do what they can NOW, before he gets the magic number.

If Trump goes independent and splits the vote the Republican establishment will blame the Trump faction for getting Hillary elected. That's probably what they're banking on at this point because it will help them purge their ranks of the crazies.
