Trump, despite the 1000s of posts since last June to the contrary is now the GOP nominee.
No No he's going to fade any day now. Why he's un electable. He's ---fill in the blank with some other garbage

Wrong.

Historically, results don't favor the incumbent's party after two terms in office.

The only exception since Truman was the elder Bush winning after Reagan's second term.

And the low turnout has been on the Democrat's side, not the Republicans.

The country has Obama fatigue right now.

And Tired Hillary isn't going to cure it.

The idea that Republicans should be Democrats and appeal to illegal immigrants, non-whites and women was the reason we had so many RINOs.

Why would anyone vote for a RINO when they could vote for a Democrat?

Trump is the reason the Republicans have a chance of winning. Without him, the party would be finished.

By the same token, the Democrats have thrown white working Americans under the bus in favor of illegal aliens, Muslims, transgenders, gun control, climate change, and all the other loony stuff they come up with.

There is no reason for Republicans to become Democrats -- but there is plenty of reason for a lot of Democrats to become Republicans if there's a candidate like Trump who is against massive immigration, job offshoring, endless wars that we don't even try to win, and pandering to takers and lunatics.

Trump has started a movement that does not depend on whether or not he'll get elected.

That movement will continue regardless.

But I'm confident that Trump will get elected.

Everything the libs and the media have said about his prospects has been wrong so far.

And Trump is clearly the right man to lead the country.

No one else even comes close.

And THAT change was long overdue.
Beating Clinton would be icing on the cake.
Exactly.

Well said!

We're not bothering to keep mental records of what the anti-Trump posters say, because, quite frankly, we couldn't care less what they say.

They'll only see that when it's way too late and America is an impoverished Third World hell-hole mired in racial civil war.

Just say to yourself, all the libs are paying for those uninspired, non-weight-pullers, and I'm only paying for the things I actually want the government to do. It makes life a whole lot easier when you are not all twisted up in knots over where the money goes.
So you're fine with at least half of our tax money being wasted.

Typical liberal.

You talked about unemployment, you talked about jobs, you talk about putting people to work, you talked about minimum wage, you talked about Medicare.”

“Now you’ve got to talk about guns, which people don’t want to hear,” Matthews lamented. “You got to talk about how coal is bad for the country and bad the world. You talk about same-sex [marriage] in a part of the country that isn’t too keen on that cultural stuff” and “abortion.”

“So all of a sudden, you’re talking about things that aren’t really well received. But in the old day, a Democrat could just say, ‘There’s a lot of poverty here, let’s do something about it.’”
When Chris Matthews starts calling out the Dems, you know things have really gotten bad!

Well said.

Interesting how the Dems don't get the reason for Bernie -- who is a lunatic, to be sure, but who at the same time is pointing out how the party no longer cares about American workers (its original core constituency) as it panders to Wall Street. If Bernie also went after illegal immigrants and massive legal immigration, and if he didn't believe that money grows on trees, he would be Trump.

On second thought, I have a really hard time with anyone supporting the uninspired lazy among us regardless of whether it is the Democrats wasting money that way. I was not raised to throw good money after bad in the hopes that a miracle will happen
Democrats are raised not to throw their own money away, but other people's money away.

Compassion without sacrifice is their motto.

They certainly shouldn't with me.

I've been predicting Trump as the nominee since June.

We don't make excuses.
