Somebody referred to Reagan earlier. I seem to recall there was widespread disbelief and near panic at the thought that an actor was about to become president. And he changed parties too as I recall. Not everyone today thinks he was a great president but most concede that he was a good president.

Reagan attempted to join The 'Hollywood' Communist Party, in the late 1930's. Later on, Reagan was a Committed Roosevelt Democrat.

Reagan was a Union Leader.

Reagan, our only Divorced President. Cheated on both wives. But became a loyal husband to Nancy later on.

Yes Bob...

Like Trump. There was panic within The Republican Establishment regarding Reagan.

Reagan and his followers, were also derided by The Liberals, The Progressives, The Left, and The Media. As Trump is.

Reagan won.

Politics, is just a Game.

Almost all politicians are in it, for their own gain.

Nothing more. Nothing less.

If you believe that, why do you vote?

Why?

Because all is with sin. Including all people you know.

Doesn't mean that you don't fall in love, make friends, or vote.

At some point in your life, after you mature from your adolescence (if you do). You understand this.

Sirius B...

I hope you have matured, and understand almost no politician is better than anyone you happen to see on the street.

bobby...

The Bush's have been rejected by both Republican Voter's and Democrats.

Understanding the differences:

What is happening in The Republican Party. Has an eerie resemblance to Reagan 1980.

bobby...

What ever happened to, Huge Negative Numbers, Reagan?


I disagree.
While Jeb(!) didn't get many votes (and Cruz didn't get much more), if you remove Trump from the conversation, you will hear several Republican voters defend George W. Bush (or Ted Cruz). At least that's what I am picking up in local conversations and discussions with conservative friends back home.

Politics, is just a Game.

Almost all politicians are in it, for their own gain.

Nothing more. Nothing less.

You forgot North Korea:)
99.9% of the voters turn up on voting day to elect Kim Jong-un.

Didn't forget.

Just referring to the FIRST Vote.

BTW Clyde, is Kim right or left? If he is left then there must be great social freedom in DPRK and little economic freedom. If he is right there must be great economic freedom in DPRK and little social freedom. Otherwise he must be a center.

Hi Gary...

I do understand your 'thinking'. And your usually incorrect understanding of those, not you.

No... I am not a Centrist.

Using your, and other Ideologues need to Codify and Tribalize everyone.

Just think of me as a Marxist, with Libertarian Tendency's.

You do understand that I am much more nuanced than that. But I am just trying to enter your world.

Fascinating.

#1 - As James Carville said: "It's The Economy, Stupid"

a) NAFTA, TPP, et al, American Job Destroying Economic Treaty's.

b) 95 Million Unemployed, Under Employed, Stopped looking for work.

Only Trump is addressing these issues.

#2 - Illegal Immigrant Crime:

Taking into account just Federal Offenses -

Illegal immigrants account for about 3.5 percent of the U.S population, they represented 36.7 percent of federal sentences in FY 2014

According to FY 2014 USSC data, of 74,911 sentencing cases, citizens accounted for 43,479 (or 58.0 percent), illegal immigrants accounted for 27,505 (or 36.7 percent), legal immigrants made up 3,017 (or 4.0 percent), and the remainder (about 1 percent) were cases in which the offender was either extradited or had an unknown status.

Broken down by some of the primary offenses, illegal immigrants represented 16.8 percent of drug trafficking cases, 20.0 percent of kidnapping/hostage taking, 74.1 percent of drug possession, 12.3 percent of money laundering, and 12.0 percent of murder convictions.

If these Criminals were stopped from entering this country. Peoples Loved Ones would not have been Murdered, Raped, etc.

a) Taxpayer Costs, regarding these unnecessary criminals.

Only Trump is addressing these issues.

BTW: If The Economy and Jobs were at a satisfactory level. If the American People did not fear for their future. If Trump's Political Opponents addressed these issues:

Trump, at this time. Would be building another Golf Course.

Re: Trump and the California Drought.

Southern California is, in many places, a Semi-Arid Climate.

Its population growth and agriculture was sustainable, since the 1920's. Only by building an extensive Water Reservoir System, including many Dams.

The Authorities stopped expanding the needed System in the 1970's.

One of the main reasons was Environmental Concerns, in conjunction with Government Regulations.

That is what Trump was referring to.

The unsustainable growth of California's Population and Agriculture, in a Semi-Arid Climate. Is the real problem.

Why haven't we learned the lesson of BOTH the Left and Right?

The horseshoe theory in political science asserts that rather than the far left and the far right being at opposite and opposing ends of a linear political continuum, they in fact closely resemble one another, much like the ends of a horseshoe:)
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseshoe_theory

Well, the political spectrum actually runs from totalitarian to anarchy. The left and right being totalitarian don't want people to realize there is a choice, because they would choose it.

Hang on.
Most of the world countries have voting systems where the public can vote representatives to rule the country.
Rex Publica.
Do you have any examples of countries that vote for either totalitarian or anarchy regims?

Yes... NAZI Germany (although it wasn't a majority), Marxist Cuba, and more recently Extreme Socialist Venezuela.

However... The people didn't understand that, according to The Left and Right: That would be The Last Free Vote, that the Left or Right would permit.

As History Instructs: NEVER EVER vote to place in power, The Left or Right.

It will be The Last Free Vote you will have.

Hmmm.
In 1776, abolitionist Thomas Day responding to the hypocrisy in the Declaration wrote, though the first draft stated " All free men are created equal".
Are not women free and created equal?

Culture of the time.

All meant All White Men.

In 1863. Lincoln expanded the meaning to All Men.

The Women's Suffrage Movement. Expanded the meaning of All.

The LGBT Movement is now expanding the meaning of All.

Are all criticisms of Drumpf (other than when a poster here labels him "Dangerous") enabling his eventual victory?

Answer of the day?

Attacking Trump, calling him Drumph, etc.

Without addressing, and having solutions, to the Valid Fears and Concerns of The American People.

IS enabling his victory.

His Media Reported Attackers don't understand, and do not have the capacity to understand this:

#1 - It's The Economy, Stupid.

#2 - Trump is smarter than those in The Media, Progressives, Left, et al.

Trump is playing them for the fools they really are.

Why haven't we learned the lesson of BOTH the Left and Right?

Because you call them left and right not totalitarians.

When The Left excused, or even supported Totalitarian Stalin, Mao, Castro, et al.

When The Left wears a picture of Psychotic Murdering Che. The same as wearing the picture of any NAZI Murderer.

They have Enabled, and are still Enabling these Murders and Enslavers.

The USA almost DID have an official language... German.

Expanding upon my previous Post -

Correct.

Both English and German were proposed to be the TWO Official Languages.


From reading your post, I am not surprised you support Trump.

Temporary? This trend has being going on since the 90's.

The 90's? Which 90's? the 2990's BC?

Hehe:)

But seriously I find it very scary that two world wars has not tought us that those far-right-wing movements are dangerous to all of us.

Including The Left.

Which has implemented, or excused, the Murder and Enslavement of over One Billion People.

Yes janne...

Why haven't we learned the lesson of BOTH the Left and Right?

Why?

Check out Poland.
Both you and I have some connection to Poland.

Bernie is laying on the commercials here. Clinton is countering but looks like she is aiming at Drumpf and not Sanders.

Got another free trash haul away envelope from DWS. So much has been arriving it won't all fit! Three or four a day for a county race.

Oh my ballot is already cast, so any BS at this point and it won't change my vote.

Those referring to Trump as Drumph.

They diminish themselves. And enables a Trump victory.

Question Of The Day:

Do they understand?

Answer Of the Day:

Never have. Never will.

All of our politicians have for many years, ignored the wishes of the general populace that they are elected to represent. And once elected, they all go their merry, money grubbing, self serving way with their middle fingers held high to those that elected them.


Trump's anti-establishment right now, but I just have a funny feeling if he gets in there, he's going to get nice and cozy.

Who knows. Maybe foreign relations will improve.
Many believe that Trump and Putin would get along well on a personal level and that alone could help ease tensions between the U.S. and Russia, which have been building up over the past years.
Fyodor Lukyanov, the head of the Russian Council on Foreign and Defense Policy, said he believes Vladimir Putin would like Trump's style.
"He likes people who are frank, open and who disregard political correctness. And that is exactly the case with Mr. Trump," Lukyanov told CNN.

Takes one. To know one.

Just temporary. It will just get worse. Much worse.
The peoples reaction to the Deranged Left, will be...
Ah... Well... Hmmmm... The Deranged Right.
Nothing new.

Temporary? This trend has being going on since the 90's.
Both Right and Left parties in Europe are now concerned that the far-right parties have so much power even in the parlaments, both national and EU.

Temporary regarding Austrian Election. Not the rest of the EU.

If Western Europe, and us, can stop The Left:

The Extreme Right will not matter.

Unfortunately, regarding The USA. The Thuggish Leftest Violence against a Presidential Candidate. Will only ensure his election.

Die-Hard Bernie Sanders Backers See F.B.I. as Answer to Their Prayers

Like many of Mr. Sanders’s supporters, Ms. Crowell, 37, said she hoped that Mrs. Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state would eventually yield an indictment, and she described it as the kind of transgression that would disqualify another politician seeking high office

Add Anti Washington Establishment Bernie Supporters, to Anti Washington Establishment Trump Supporters, and you get...

A large majority of The People having the Same Enemy, and demanding a change.

Well, if they removed the classified stamp, then they are the ones in trouble and Clinton is scott free, because if you don't know it is classified you can't mishandle it!


Horse dung.

Clinton told them to do it.

Do you follow an illegal order? Nuremberg anyone?

Both are criminal.

But in this Country: Those who 'followed' the Illegal Order(s) from their Boss. Are usually given A Deal (Immunity from Prosecution or Reduced Sentence) for their 'Cooperation'.

Been there. Done that.

Liberal Washington Post Editorial:

Clinton’s inexcusable, willful disregard for the rules

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/clintons-inexcusable-willful-disregard-for-the-rules/2016/05/25/0089e942-22ae-11e6-9e7f-57890b612299_story.html

HILLARY CLINTON’S use of a private email server while secretary of state from 2009 to 2013 has been justifiably criticized as an error of judgment. What the new report from the State Department inspector general makes clear is that it also was not a casual oversight. Ms. Clinton had plenty of warnings to use official government communications methods, so as to make sure that her records were properly preserved and to minimize cybersecurity risks. She ignored them...

How many criminals running for President?
