There is far more demand for education than the supply. This is the case with Arizona's widely praised charter schools and private schools. You can't spin facts.

Insults Kasich

Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump 7h7 hours ago
Gov. John Kasich has really failed on the campaign trail. I thought he would have been far more talented. He is just wasting time & money!

I guess you were never taught that America's founders did not want professional politicians, but rather ordinary citizens, to govern this country.

Those citizens might be businessmen, soldiers, farmers, etc.

President Eisenhower was not a professional politician before he was elected President.

You're comparing those terms to terms like "clown" and "buffoon"?

Really?

Why should he deny me and others the pleasure of participating in the process?

That's not the same thing as getting big money from corporations and unions with the understanding that he will grant them favors if he gets elected.

Again, we have a liberal who would never vote for a Republican worried enough about Trump to nitpick about how he is financing his campaign.

Why so worried?

Isn't Hillary's victory a sure thing after Obama's "stellar" performance?

Well said.

He is for Americans and America.

What an outrage!

Trump hasn't needed to spend much of his own money because he gets constant free media coverage and no doubt has plenty of volunteers on the ground in primary and swing states.

You're not going to get anywhere with your criticisms of his sources of money. Not unless he gets huge contributions from unions or corporations.

Come up with examples of that, and then we'll take you seriously.

MSNBC.

The same network that had a host (Ed Schultz) who wished death on Dick Cheney ("Somebody should rip his heart out and stuff it down his throat") and another host who wished obscene torture on Sarah Palin.

And you expect us to take your sources seriously....

His small donors don't want him to return their money.

He has never denied that he has been getting small donations.

So all you have left is your name calling ("con artist".)

Another liberal who doesn't like a Republican.

Big surprise!

Ya know what?

We Republicans and conservatives don't WANT you to like us.

We would be mortified if you did...
