    I might just end up voting for the guy. He makes more sense than anyone running.

    He doesn't say anything concrete. He doesn't put out any policy ideas. He just attacks, attacks, and attacks and brags about how great he is. What's his position on taxes? How about 2nd amendment rights? Abortion? Health insurance?

    Trump doesn't have guys like Karl Rove hanging around him. He admits that he is not a politician. Some think that he attracts Democrats.

    Jeb Bush's best shot is to change parties and hope that Obama will indict Hillary for her criminality with the e-mails.

    That people are listening to this guy and seriously considering voting for him is a canary in the coal mine of a dying republic.

    People's stupidity never ceases to amaze me.

    I've had enough. I'm voting for a conservative.

    It would seriously be an embarrassing day for this country if Donald Trump gets elected President. To think for the slightest instant that he has the best interests in mind for the middle class and working class is laughable. I'm not going to vote for a Commander in Chief that thinks it's funny to make fun POW jokes to political rivals when never having served. He's a razor thin skinned egomaniac and I can't even fathom how he would be able to handle foreign policy.

    I'm sure his stance on abortion matches the libertarian stance. I do know his stance on the border. He's been beating China for 20 years. And the GOP NEEDS to be attacked. Seriously. How's that Obamacare defunding going ? How about the amnesty ? You happy with how the GOP fights for you ? I'm sure not.

    The best a president can do would be to issue an order or memorandum to agencies funding or assisting abortion to stand down.

    I don't Trump to do that. Nor would I trust him to do anything else. He's a circus clown. Nothing else.

    I have a home in L.A. and a home in Maryland, both of which have been taken over by illegal migrant workers. So I don't like it any better than you do.

    But I'm still not voting for Trump and I don't understand anybody who would, particularly not somebody who calls himself a conservative who would.

    I get it. Illegal immigration is bad. I want to see it stopped, too. But that doesn't mean I'm willing to take a hit on every other issue for it.

    It's going to be the Ross Perot effect all over again. The only difference is that Ross Perot actually knew what he was doing, even if he was bat [snot] crazy.

    If I vote for Trump, two things are going to happen: 1) Votes will be deflected away from a conservative candidate and we'll be stuck with a socialist. 2) Trump will win and we'll be stuck with Trump.

    I don't see any good result from voting for Trump. Only bad.

    Nope. The best a president can do is nominate conservative justices. And to your second point, I don't trust any of them. Any.

    And a third point, he's being railed against simply because he has put his boot deep in the GOP's rear end. Same with Ron Paul. Nobody wants to disrupt the status quo.

    He says he's been beating China for 20 years. But, what does that mean? He's into real estate, not manufacturing. What's he beating the Chinese at?

    I'm not happy with the GOP leadership, they are a bunch of wimps. They can't do anything about defunding ObamaCare because Obama would veto it. Can't do anything about amnesty for the same reason and they don't have the votes in the Senate to override a veto.

    Headline... A Republican justice appointed by a liberal Republican President lead the five votes for legalizing gay marriage in Kentucky which had a Constitutional amendment defining marriage.

    So for the clowns that still believe there is a difference between the two parties, you get your information from a obese, pill popping, womanizing, self centered slob the drools on his microphone. That is a great Christian example and a true American virtue.

    Nope, you all will allow Bush or a Bush type candidate be nominated, and the Democrats will thrash the Republicans in 2016 and the blame lies square on your shoulders.

    I have a standing litmus test for every candidate seeking public office. Where does the candidate stand on the sanctity of life? My conscience will not allow me to vote for a candidate who does not vigorously oppose legalized infanticide.

    Rush and Trump are two of a kind, full of BS with diarrhea of the mouth. The only way I would vote for Trump is to vote against a democrat!

    I respectfully disagree to my elder brother. The people who will be to blame for a democrat in the White House are the same people who sat home and failed to vote for Romney in 2012, because he was a Mormon, giving Obama a second term. I recall when a lot of "born again" people voted for the second worst president in American history, Jimmy Carter!
