Remember that and you'll know where she stands on every issue.

What Trump did as a private citizen means little to us as none of us are forced to patronize his hotels or associate with him in anyway. What Clinton wants to inflict on us as President is important as it's mandatory.

You really expect Trump to win? I'm still skeptical but do prefer him to HRC (which, coming from me, isn't saying much).






This says so much about her and her supporters.

That, I believe, is the key to Trump's success. Americans are no longer interested in government. They want to be entertained. It happened to sports when ESPN decided we would watch poker, car auctions, and the WNBA. It happened to war when Desert Storm was televised and narrated by General Schwartzkopf.

Given Trump's utterly shameless public persona and ability to command the TV screen, and Hillary's wooden delivery (except when she's being fed lines on SNL), this election might end up being closer than we think.

I give you H.L. Mencken:

“The Presidency tends, year by year, to go to such men. As democracy is perfected, the office represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. We move toward a lofty ideal. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart’s desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.”

Hypothetical poll. Those polls would flip 20 points in a week with Trump running against a communist.. lol, Americans aren't as lazy as you think.
