    Just what is the impetus fueling the fear of Trump, or Cruz or Carson? To me is seems so unwarranted, but when it comes to losing power, maybe their fear has a just cause. WHAT SAY YOU?

    Put yourself in the expensive shoes of a country club member and then see if you would like a bankrupt casino owner or a Cuban Southern Baptist or an inexperienced doctor in the White House.

    Or if you want a very elderly pasty white person, vote Democrat.

    Trump does not have the right temperament to be President. Witness his juvenile threat yesterday, "If Cruz doesn't stop lying about me, I'm going to sue him." Imagine his egotistical reaction to some provocation initiated by Putin.

    Cruz is a relative newcomer that made his name by criticizing established Republicans and had the audacity to run for President without any legislative accomplishments. The old guard GOP do not want this to become a precedent.

    Ben Carson does not have the knowledge of foreign affairs nor the experience to be President.

    This was HILARIOUS! How on earth does this man fix his mouth to threaten to sue Cruz over his eligibility for the presidency if he does not take down anti-Trump attack ads?[​IMG]

    This man has punked the nation into taking part in his reality show. Controversy gets "stirred up" the same way it is on other reality tv.

    I fully expect NBC to pick up the rights to "Trump:How to Fool the People", a ten week miniseries to air during sweeps Spring 2017.

    Agree with the above. Also, not even sure when Trump became a Republican and moved to a conservative view - perhaps in the last year?

    And it's not just the old GOP guard. There is no current US Representative, US Senator or Governor (not even one) that is supporting any of these three candidates.

    I'm pretty sure Congressman King from Iowa has endorsed Cruz.
