No complaints but how many people would be watching these really dumb but record setting debates if I wasn't in them?
And what is your point. He is right. If thinking highly of yourself and expressing your opinions thinking everyone will listen to you................we'll just say there are others who do that all around us.

So you would do something that you thought was a waste of time and energy when you had a very busy schedule?

So, you follow Trump on Twitter too. Are you still thinking about voting for him then?

I know you said that you were undecided so maybe you missed my post with the excellent quiz that helps one determine which candidate is the best match based on the issues and how much each issue means to you: Political Quiz?

I am really confused about the people that seem to hate/dislike Trump when it becomes obsessive. His supporters are behind him and as the news reports, we are not budging.

I have noticed that there isn't much comparing between any candidate and Trump, just a bunch of silly comments about Trump. Of course, hold him up against Clinton or Sanders and all you'll get is one big

Trump doesn't owe anyone based on contributions to his campaign. All of us that have signed up at his website: https://www.donaldjtrump.com/ where you can get emails with updates, buy merchandise (Christmas!) and donate up to a certain amount..........yes, we already knew you could donate at his website. I don't think for that amount that he'll believe he owes anyone any favors as POTUS. But, he'll still be doing us all a favor in so many ways: deporting the illegals increasing funds for our citizens, helping the veterans, bringing jobs back to our country............ People appreciate being able to donate small amounts of money to show they are behind the best candidate for POTUS, to show we who are patriotic want to show our support to another patriotic citizen, we want to be a part of the solution not a part of the problem by supporting Hillary alias "more of the same".

I wonder why the obsession over Trump by certain posters in here if they think he has a chance in hell? It seems they follow his every move.

Yes, I, too, wonder when BucFan will take the political quiz. After all, he says he's undecided and this quiz will help him with that.

As for people that hate/dislike Trump to the point it becomes obsessive. I say they have "Trump derangement syndrome"

Unlike the Objectivist and libertarian segments of the conservative spectrum, they all seek access to the legal monopoly on the use of coercion granted to the central government, in order to force their self-defined, supposedly-"moral" point of view on everybody else.

They can't afford to moderate their plans even to a point where the principles of charity might be retained, but the centralization of their power denied. And when they are refused this through the free exchange of human opinion, they go looking for stronger methods of "persuasion". Or they over-simplify the scientific and technical facts that get in the way, and go trawling for the support of the young, the impressionable, and the perpetually-insecure. They are afraid of freedom, and even more afraid of reason.
Putting makeup on a pig, don't change the fact it is a pig. In this case, claiming name calling is accuracy doesn't change the fact that it is name calling none the less.

With the exception of "crony capitalist", all the descriptions I invoked: Marxist, Socialist, and especially "progressive" (a replacement for the thoroughly-discredited term "liberal") originated with the practitioners of these deceptions themselves.

And I Repeat:

Could you show anywhere near as much enthusiasm for a local approach, monitored by local people who knew the area well enough to separate the truly needy from the habitually-unmotivated?

And could you enter into this without peddling your favorite nostrum? -- that somewhere, there's a "one per cent" with a big vault full of money that could pay for it all -- if you and your friends could only get their hands on it?

I'm prepared to wait for your direct answer until there are ice-cream parlors in Hell.

I don't because the local politicians just want to cut cut cut and not try to actually fix problems. Not every locality try to fix local problems. Some just want to cut the debt and let the chips fall where they may. Arizona has cut spending for schools and the State is 47th in the nation for spending and no better when it comes to school ratings. My question is why settle like Arizona has resigned to. Sadly my vote domnt make a difference due to old conservatives that moved from other states.

(emphasis added)

There are plenty of people, and enterprises, who would show interest in an efficient, streamlined, privatized educational system -- just as soon as the NEA was firmly told to either leave its political baggage at the front door, or turn the job over to those who separate fact from opinion. That is the only "problem" in need of "fixing".
