Is it? Is it really better?

(and yes, might as well be 4 more years of Obama, under Hillary)....

I do have confidence that John Kasich can lead the country to a better future. He has balanced the budget in Ohio and was still able to lower taxes. He has had experience in Congress and knows how to get things done so as to unite opposing factions and avoid gridlock, and he has the temperament and executive experience to get the job done. He would be respected by our international partners, and he would strengthen the military so as to be able to defeat Isis and deal effectively with Putin.

a reply to: [post=20464757] Gazrok : I'm sorry to note that one of my favorite prior candidates, Carly Fiorina, has endorsed Ted Cruz. Like Trump, Cruz would be an unmitigated disaster for America. He is a religious zealot and belongs to the tea party folks and to the evangelicals, but not to the American people overall in my opinion.

Cruz would slap a 19 percent federal sales tax on us in addition to a huge tax increase on middle class seniors, all of which would be highly detrimental to our economy. And his idea to carpet bomb the M.E. is ridiculous and totally unworkable as well as inhumane. It would also discourage Sunni Muslims from joining a coalition force against the terrorists. Cruz, like Trump, could get the U.S. into a Third World War, and his idea of a flat tax would fail to give Congress enough revenue to properly increase our defense budget to levels necessary to defeat Isis and deal with Putin in eastern Europe.

Hopefully Carly only endorsed Cruz as a device to stop Trump! And Trump surely has to be stopped!!

The prime minister of Israel cancelled a meeting this month with Democratic Party President Obama realizing that such a meeting would be utterly fruitless. Obama has never shown any respect for Bibi and likely would show no respect for him again. The President has no clue as to the extent of Israel's problems with the PLO and Hamas, or just doesn't really care.

There is an ironic similarity between Obama's attitude toward Israel and that of Donald Trump. Sir Donald is the only Republican candidate running for President today who hasn't taken a firm stand on the Israeli- Palestinian issue. Instead of coming out strong for America's best friend and partner, he continues to sit on the fence so as to appear neutral on the problem. That is not the way a strong leader behaves toward an important world partner in the all important M.E. region! Marco Rubio called Trump for this strange stance at a recent debate, and rightly so!

Hillary Clinton insists she will not be facing criminal charges over the private e-mail scandal in response to a question posed to her in the Democratic Party Debate tonight. I wonder what makes her so confident. Probably because she knows her friend, President Obama, is running interference for her. Obama is counting on Hillary to preserve his legacy of leading from behind!

The latest polls show either Clinton or Bernie Sanders handily beating Donald Trump in the national election. But Sanders does even better against Trump than does Hillary.

Sanders probably won't get the Democratic nomination and a good thing he won't. His socialist 19 trillion dollar income redistributing budget would wreck our economy and lead to a severe recession as the people who do the hiring in this country would be hard pressed to keep going., i.e. small businessmen and corporations.

Lets hope it doesn't come down to the right wing extremist Trump vs the left wing extremist Sanders. That would truly be an Rx of poison for America!

Donald Trump plans to cut the Dept. of Education at a time when this country desperately needs to improve its education system just to keep up with other countries who have moved far ahead of America. I can't help remember how President Kennedy used to say that "America should be second to none." No way to make America great again, Mr. Trump!

If you think throwing more money at the education system will fix it, you are not paying attention at all.

The US already spends the most per student by far. The problem is teachers are not allowed to teach, they teach for tests aimed at the lowest common denominator. It is a system that at best produces mediocrity as good teachers are not motivated, and good students are not challenged.

I am positive that no department of education will result in a better education, and we will save a lot of money that is being wasted.

Simply cutting and running from the problem as proposed by the Trump is not the way to improve education in this country. We need a better more efficient and better managed Dept. of Education that will incentivize and encourage the good teachers who motivate their students, and which will weed out the mediocre teachers.

Lets not forget how Trump thrives on those who are less educated as all would be dictators do. He says "I love the under educated voters and they love me." Ignorance is not bliss! We need better QUALITY education in America, not less education!

"In the 1980s, some of the momentum of education reform moved from the left to the right, with the release of A Nation at Risk, Ronald Reagan's efforts to reduce or eliminate the United States Department of Education."

Of course. Reagan and his conspiracies with corporations and foreign governments. Not a word of addressing the problems. Just kill it. He hated all american institutions except cults and the war machine.

Of course Trump would love to see education become a product.

I agree. But Trump will never be President, and Education will survive in America and thrive. Why? Because it must in any great nation dedicated to democracy and to the future. I remain optimistic in America's future and in the education of its people.

In my opinion, Gov. John Kasich of Ohio is the best candidate out there to support a strong education system for the country and who has the know how and ability to do so. It is my hope that he can come out on top in the winner take all Ohio primary and that he also does well in the neighboring Illinois primary, both of which will take place on March 15th.

I also believe that it is Gov. Kasich who provides the best chance to stop the Trump and also has the best chance to defeat the disingenuous Hillary Clinton in the national election in November. Current polls show Kasich defeating Clinton by
11 percentage points in a prospective head to head match up.

Trump's anti Muslim rhetoric is endangering the lives of innocent Muslim Americans, and his threats to kill the families of terrorists, while appealing to some, is nonetheless the advocacy of acts that would violate international law and which could not be carried out by our military personnel, even if Trump were to order same. When confronted by this issue, Trump responded that "they won't disobey me, believe me!"

Trump also wants to go beyond waterboarding which he says isn't tough enough.

All of this are further examples of this buffoon's outrageous rhetoric and only further serves to illustrate his total lack of fitness to be America's commander in chief. It is time for the electorate to wake up and realize exactly what kind of person they are on the brink of making a nominee for President of the United States.

It is my opinion that the best chance to deny Trump a first ballot nomination by the Republican Party this summer is for the remaining challengers to refrain from attacking each other and unify in their stand against the Donald instead. It looks like it will come down to the Ohio and Florida winner take all primaries on March 15 which must be won by John Kasich and Marco Rubio respectively.

Hopefully the voters in these two states will send a strong message to the would be dictator that there is no place for him in the G.O.P.

I have previously suggested that to take Trump at his word would be the same as being talked into buying swamp land under the Florida everglades. An example is Trump's recent comment that "I'm a unifier. " Nothing could be further from the truth. He is a racist who would set Christians against Muslims, immigrants against non immigrants, and Hispanic citizens against non Hispanics. Trump would divide our nation like none other. He is not what we're all about and he doesn't reflect American values!

The N.Y. Court of appeals has ruled that the case brought by the Attorney General against Trump University and against Trump himself can proceed to trial. It is time for the electorate to see Trump for the fraud and con man that he really is. The Donald is as corrupt a politician as there is and the idea that he is somehow above such things because he has so much money is nothing more than a carefully orchestrated illusion. Sooner or later the chickens will come home to roost for this egotistical bully!

So, I'm guessing...

You "Don't Want To Make America Great Again" ?

America bought Barry's "Hope and Change" Bullsh!t.

So, there is precedent.

What are you talking about? Barack had no chance to change anything thanks to the racist 'do nothing' congress.

His healthcare , when amended to be a quality care for everyone, will go down in history as his legacy and he'll be considered great.

It cracks me up that people just allowed congress to sabotage Obama's term, and then proceed to blame it on him

a reply to: THEatsking Thanks for your opinion but I must respectfully disagree.
The Affordable Care Act a/k/a Obama Care has resulted in an overall increase in the cost of healthcare and has proven to be anything but affordable for many Americans. Even worse it has resulted in many internists being forced to convert to concierge practices leaving the majority of their patients to have to accept physician assistants to conduct their annual physical examinations instead of their actual doctor. These internists had to do so because they couldn't afford to continue their practices otherwise.

If this act is the President's legacy, he has nothing at all to be proud of!

Given the totality of everything we have seen and learned about Donald Trump to date, it is difficult not to see that he might well become the first President in the over 200 year history of our republic, (if he is elected), to become an American dictator!

" The question is how and why can a racist zenophobic megalomaniac and supreme demagogue have such broad appeal to the American electorate when our friends in Canada and Europe know him for exactly what he is? "

How Exactly have you come to the Conclusion that Mr. Trump , in your own words , is a " racist zenophobic megalomaniac and supreme demagogue " ?

By the way , I think part of your Delusional description of Mr. Trump was Zenophobic itself .

Nice OP but I will tell you......don't underestimate the republicans themselves as the great facilitators of Trump.

Everyone has seen the rise of the republicans back into power, and other conservative type groups, over the last two elections. This Trump this is a rejection of the republican party for a number of reasons. Watch when Trump gains the office the very people that conservatives have been putting into office will fight him. Thats when the 3rd parties start the rise.
