of debt. I think I might vote for that guy!
Apparently lots of people did not know that, including so many of the TEA party folks that cannot seem to get behind him enough right now. Then again,
he never did make it official. Too bad too because he had posters.
It is almost like he really put a lot of effort into saying he was going to run to only not really run as if it were some kind of publicity stunt.
Wait, hmmmm....would Trump do something like that just to get his name out there more? With such big "steaks?"
I love your link. While I do not have a comprehensive list of his stances right now, I am fairly certain that his courting of the TEA party is more
than enough to look at your link and see a vast chasm here. I see Trump supporters running through abortion threads talking about stopping the murder
of babies...etc. Just how is the Christian Right/TEA party going to deal with this? I guess every tiger can change it's stripes. Gulliani courted the
Christian right too.
Ah well, the times they are a changing.
