It doesn’t matter why as long as they go. I am sure Jeb wouldn’t have turned them away.

Meanwhile JEB comes to Rock Hill, a suburb of the Charlotte 2.5 Million metro and and one of the fastest growing places in in the USA. Looks to me like he managed to get about 40 people to come to the "magnolia room". LOL.

Just for the record, Myrtle Beach gets a ton of tourists from southeastern noncoastal states as well as NC and SC. It's where the regular folks go with their families on vacation.

Trump is like the Charlie Sheen of politics - the more outrageous, the more coverage.

Mitt "I'm a Progressive Republican" Romney.
Failure!

The silent majority stayed silent on that one!
So which was it that cost your guy the nomination? Was it the "media" or the RNC. It couldn`t possibly be because most people saw Ron Paul as a nutjob....you think?

One is bought and paid for by the other. For some reason, you think there is a separation between the Establishment and the Media. There is a good reason the 2 political parties are identical for the last 100 years. The Federal Reserve established the the Banks and the wealthy run this nation and place who is in their best interest into high positions. It is never who the people want. It is who the RNC and the DNC say will be the person. The system has been rigged against the people for as long as the government has had censorship control over the media. Then came the internet.

Only in the last 10 years have you seen a shift from the Progressive Global Banking Establishment pushing for a One World currency, government and laws, appointed by the media to office, over to Constitutional representation, by people whos message would have never made it to the people, even 20 years ago. The bought off media would have never allowed it.

The explosion of social media, has been able to get the truth to the masses, that the mainstream media has been told to manipulate.

Perhaps, but unless you have an element of truth in your speeches, outrage alone is not going to cut it. Also, you are so conditioned to bland PC talk that what appears to you as “outrageous” may just be the way things are.

^ this

Also, as Nita said, Myrtle Beach is very popular with the "Snowbirds" who spend their winters down South and their summers back home in New York which enable them to get special tax breaks. A good number of these huge Trump rallies have occurred in places that have a large retiree population.

Very true, but some choose to only see one side of issues.
