    "Who knows what's coming this year," Carroll said.

    Never been a Trump supporter. :)

    I read their platform last night and pretty much agree with it. I especially like their being pro-life for the whole life and defending traditional marriage. Also, I am very intrigued by Distributism and am learning more about it between now and the election.
