    IMO the worst thing the Republicans can do is cannibalize themselves--Hillary and the Dems will be more than willing to do the trash talking. So what does Trump do right out of the gates? He trashes the Republicans. That does not sit well with me, and combined with him touting himself as "a truly great leader", whether true or not, demonstrates a hubris and ego that I don't like either.

    He came across to me as a snake-oil salesman, and is now my least favorite candidate amongst the Republicans.

    Most of the people who talk a lot about "overthrowing a tyrannical government"...

    apparently think they'll do it with a KEYBOARD...not a gun. :D

    Which is still part of day-to-day survival and a much much less frequent part than what guns were used for most often by regular people back then. Not allowing people to have guns would have made as much sense and been just as useless as not letting people have horses. It would have been unenforceable and 150% foolish considering how essential to life being armed was back then. The people would have laughed those statesmen right out of the building, and the Constitution would have gone the way of the Articles of Confederation. A more modern equivalent would be not letting people have cars or electricity. Those are much more essential to day-to-day life for a regular person than guns are now in this country.

    That's true, that's the job of the government, specifically the legislative and judicial branches. And I'm glad they do it. I support it.

    If my options are

    a. 50 million illegal invaders, or
    b. 50 million newly legalized welfare consuming Democrat voters

    I guess I'm stuck with the infestation aren't I?

    How about instead option C

    DEPORT THEM ALL AND DEFEND THE BORDER!

    See the Hilary VS Obama battles during the primaries.. She was the one who brought up his qualifications to begin with. But since she has a D in front of her name i guess that is ok...

    That being said i would never vote for Hilary nor Trump....

    Ah okay. So you're definitely just anti immigration then. You definitely don't have issue with the illegal part because you want them to stay illegal. And you definitely don't have a problem with the welfare cost part because you want to militarize the border which would cost many times more. So you're just plain old against immigration.

    Can you quote a single birther statement she made? Birtherism was started on the right wing rag free republic in March 2008.

    That's good. Both suck

    Fixing the (*)(*)(*)(*)ed up economy republicans created was expensive.

    See....that's not happening. With ANY likely GOP Nominee in 2016.

    "DEPORT THEM ALL".....will not be promised by that Nominee...ever.

    You can start here and do your own research as you will attack any source i post no matter what it is.

    I will try with this one as well. Curious what you can find wrong with it ~

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...4/Birther-row-began-with-Hillary-Clinton.html

    So yes her campaign is behind it. Perhaps she doesnt have a famous quote to link but her camp was behind it.. Have fun.

    Mainly because it's the absolutely most expensive and economically damaging solution to the problem. It's a purely xenophobic solution.

    There are a few honest Rightwingers out there....

    who see the NIGHTMARE that is going to be in store for the GOP during the Debates, if Trump scores a spot in the "Top Ten Only" Fox or CNN debates.

    His ego and pandering to the Fringe for applause lines....are going to make a circus...

    turn into a Hieronymous Bosch painting.

    (Give everybody a chance to Google that...then go to "Images". :) )

    - - - Updated - - -

    The Republican Party nor its Nominee...are going to commit political suicide.

    Plus, if the GOP Nominee FAILS to make that promise....he loses nothing.

    99% of the xenophobic or racist Right....will stil vote for him on the desperate, clinging hope that he'll "change his mind in office" and start loading up the box-cars for a trip across the Rio Grande heading south.

    I think you are underestimating the republicans in 2016, I recall you doing the same in 2014 and we all know how that turned out. Trump wont present anyone a nightmare , and its likely he will make the other candidates look SMARTER. Its really a win win for other republicans.

    So you can't find her saying any such thing. And no, Birtherism started in March of 2008 at the free republic. I don't deny that it's possible someone in her campaign may have spread the rumor after that though. But there isn't any evidence of that.

    Actually, I predicted the GOP would take the Senate...so your powers of recall are lacking.

    What a ridiculous analogy.

    If guns were as common as horses back then, then why didn't they put the right to have horses in the second amendment?

    Where do you come up with this crap?

    So, you are for the government hacks determining what rights we can and can not have?

    If so, then you should stay away from any public office and/or voting booth.
