Yeah because the admitted socialist is better?


He's not that much of a socialist.


Is that what you Bernie supporters are running with this week?
That's cute!

"Duped out of their life savings?"

What Kool Aid have you been drinking? I assume you are referring to Trump University. Yeah, they used "sales techniques" to sell something. Imagine that! Have you ever bought a car. Any $20K/year used car salesman uses the same tactics. Look in ANY book on salesmanship ever printed: "Sell the sizzle, not the steak." I don't see how the Trump University non-scandal is ANYWHERE near the Clinton e-mail fiasco. It's not even in the same league. Ohm and guess what? The legal firm "handling" thus case gave thousands to the Clinton campaign.

Secondly, what's this about "Why aren't conservatives calling on Trump to step down?"

Say what? Conservatives have been calling for him to do exactly that since he got into the race. But the GOP electorate has just told the "conservatives" to go to hell. Trump is not a conservative and never said he was.

This Election is about the future of the Supreme Court.

Either side would conspire with Satan himself to stack the Court.

This Election will likely decide the direction of this Nation for decades.

At least Trump doesn't point with his thumb...So, There's that.

THANK YOU! That's exactly what I have been trying to say!

I looked at the sales book (or excerpts quoted online) that they are complaining about, and I don't see anything in it that you would not find in any other sales book. Anyone who does not believe that knows nothing about business or about how the real world works.

I saw headlines that somehow made it seem bad that the pitch included selling "feeling". Really? Every single salesman in the world learns that on day one. Every sales training course includes how to make the sale, including reaching the customer's feelings.

I have seen real live sales books with details about how to pitch your product against competitors, how to show customers how your product is so much better, AND how to work your way up with the customer to the next level of product (at a higher cost), if they will go there.

If you don't know how sales pitches work, then you have never bought a car, or had a salesman in your house to pitch a security system, or new heater, or just about every other thing for sale. And when you work in a business - sheesh - I have annoying sales people pushing hard every day on the phone and in email, and even physical drop-ins, all using their pitches to convince you that you need their product.

Even colleges and universities do the same thing! They work hard to appeal to potential students during open houses etc.

Trump U did nothing different than any other business.

It's not 'flip flopping' ... it's:

Being unpredictable!

...

Or at least that's the lie and pill they've decided to swallow.

1. He's going to win. He's got the momentum and the law of inertia prevails.

2. He might go all Reagan conservative once he gets sworn in. He's acting like this now to seal up independents.

Trump's is a "civil" case. Anyone can sue anyone.
If suing could cause someone to not be eligible for office, then it would be easy to stop anyone from being elected.

There is an FBI "criminal" investigation of Hillary. Big difference.



This is the reason Muse. Can you dig it?!

You say Nationalist like its a dirty word. It's not. We are faced with a choice at current moment, between globalism, and national sovereignty with our nation guided by the constitutional principles.

If we choose globalism, we choose allowing a handful of people to govern us, to dictate law to us regarding environment, trade, immigration, and more. All things which are in the purview of Congress and the presidency. We can erode our constitution, and remove power from the hands of Congress and give it to people who don't share our values, or even our land, or we can keep national sovereignty - which benefits a diverse people in this land economically and otherwise.

We saw, in the form of NAFTA, what globalism will be like on a smaller scale, so you want to make sure it's large scale, since it is a lie and a failure? Since NAFTA, which was supposed to reduce poverty in Mexico, poverty has increased. Since NAFTA, which was supposed to be a boon to the middle class, we have seen it's decline due to lost jobs and lost manufacturing overseas.

But what the heck - lets do more than that and on a much larger scale, so that we can have no sovereignty over our laws, and so that we can do away with the middle class and have only two class in this country.. the rulers and the ruled! What fun!

Nationalism is a good thing. I am no globalist.

No, he won't. There are more people who vote Democrat in presidential elections living in the USA.

You are seeing what you want to see through rose tinted glasses.

My apologies, I think him being a nationalist is a great thing and will probably do more good for the US people than 2 or 3 of the best past presidents combined. I hate fooking globalists (pardon my irish lol). I want to see Trump win. I want to see him root out the evil and hand them over for treason (one can dream). He will either straighten out the US which is what I expect or the libtards will start a civil war and destroy the US. In any event, better soon or better soon once rebuilding starts, it's all good.

You brought up that dirty word, NAFTA, and free trade lol. Can we trade you one Trump for four or five of our Trudeaus?

Cheers - Dave

NEVER!

While I am not quite as optimistic as you are, I am thinking that realistically if Trump can do the half of what he would like, then we will be in a much better position than we are today. Hopefully we can do that.

I fully agree on what Trump may be able to do and yes I may be overly optimistic, but I would rather hope to see the better part of people than fall into despair over the evil.

As far as NEVER! C'mon, build us a clone, we'll take a clone!

Don't know how to build you a clone, but perhaps you will find someone someday that will help better your country!

To the rest: So true, you are correct!

From my point of view,

What trump has allegedly done is loan his name to a sales course akin to the type that Martin Lesko does on buying and sales of realistate. With any sales career either your good 5% of the time or you suck wind 95% of the time, what his university was about was trying to show people ways to ahem "stack" the deck in their favor, but it is still about sales. Results of such a course may give you a 1% edge over some one who does not use those tactics taught, so that is a 6% success rate instead of a 5% success rate. The CIVIL law suit comes from people who took the course against the disclaimer that "results were not typical" thinking that it would be a quick fix instead of a nose to the grind stone tactic they expected to be making huge deals right away. No one makes huge deals right out of the gate. Then to make the situation more fun the primary plaintiff sent letters thanking Trump and had volunteered for videos claiming how great the course was. When that information was discovered and the original plaintiff was removed from the case it should have been closed down. But somewhere from the start of the case to current it was shifted from a single civil to a class action, which means more blood in the water for lawyers to try. While it feels wrong that the results could not be delivered there was nothing criminal about it. The case was brought by people who payed for the information and did not have the skills or drive to use the information properly to their advantage. Just like graduates of other fly by night collages, like American Commercial Collage and or Kaplan University Those are only good if you find a way to apply and leverage the instruction yourself.

What Hillary has allegedly done is in the same vein as what Snowden has done, Exposed government secrets to the open. Mind her way of doing it (accidentally getting caught at it) and her motives were different (personal gain versus the right thing) Yet the Double standard clearly on display has Snowden hiding out of country, and her Running for President. That of course is not counting her multiple counts of Incompetence as Secretary of State. Her voting record while a new york Senator. Along with her complacency in issues of her husband, all those crimes against fellow women instead of championing their cause. But the most sour taste in my mouth would come from her and Bills theft of the property that belongs to the People of the United States of America. They are loaned a US landmark to Live in and they choose to steal from it.

So the choice is a Con man who makes money putting his name on things, Or a Incompetent career Politician. (not yet counting Bernie because I think even if Hillary is pulled they will throw Biden and Fauxahontis (read Elisabeth "No tribe Number" Warren) in as a replacement and Bernie will get assed out either way)

None of the above is a choice for me, so I am going with an Independent that is officially on the Ticket the only true comedian in the race Ron White.

Yet they seem obsessed with Hillary and her emails?

Trump is also under investigation for running a scam and scamming thousands of people out of their life savings why aren't Conservatives calling for him to drop out?

They almost seem to embrace the fact that he scammed people?

They also think that Trump's instability, pathological lying and flip-flopping make him a stronger candidate...

Someone explain that logic for me please.
Less than a handful of people are involved in the CIVIL SUIT that is cooked up by La Raza attorneys who coincidentally have donated half a million dollars to the Clinton campaign...And an Obama appointed judge to boot...

You mean why don't those self righteous demanders of truth, justice and the american way demand some stuff shirt represent them? Same reason dems wont ask Hillary to drop out really. In fact at this point its rather ludicrous to expect one thing from conservatives and another from libs.

OK. Put your thinking cap on because this is a tough one on the comprehension receptors.

Because they want to win.
