In reality both parties have failed the American people but in todays world I will take the republicans over the democrats only because I feel they will keep us safer..

    In defense of many politicians here in New Mexico, this is a very Catholic state, many of our democrat politicians are Catholic. Haven't seen them trying to take away any Christian rights, politically correct, yes to an extent. But also very pro labor, very pro middle class and poor. They have kept RTW out of our state as the republicans push it like crazy!

    It's a trade off anyway you look at it.

    WOW, after reading this thread I don't know where to start. I was raised in a Boston Irish Catholic family who despised Protestants and republicans. That hatred was due to the prejudices they were subjected to by the WASPs when they immigrated to America. I started voting republican because as a new proud Teamster I believed what Fitzsimmons said. I argued politics with my father for many years until I finally realized that he was right.

    In later years I had been hoodwinked by Sean, Rush and the rest of the rightwing media. I admired guys like Ollie North and Gordon Liddy. I over looked the criminal activities of Nixon, Reagan and the Bushes as being done for the good of the republic. I was more interested in smoke screen issues like abortion and gays in the military. I voted for McCain rather than the so call Muslim Obama. But then I finally saw thru all the media smoke and mirrors. I can't see myself ever voting for a republican again.

    I don't like and can't believe anything Rodham Clinton says. But Trump isn't qualified to be the POTUS. If he is actually the republican nominee he will IMO lose in a Clinton landslide. I have to wonder if he really wants to be president. He will probably come out of this with more wealth for losing.

    I know all about being brought up Irish catholic.. My older brother and sister both got married in the Irish American hall .. My oldest brothers son's wife was a protestant Irish girl.. But with my brothers nagging about her being "Shanty Irish" that marriage didn't last long..
    This country is in a death spiral and we need someone to right the ship.. Under Obama's watch the national debt has more than doubled although he did say he would have it balanced.. Just another of his non kept promises.. If we get Hillary as the president and she does as she said that being continuing the policies of Obama this country is doomed.. Never voted for Obama in either election.. As far as Trump goes I believe we need someone that isn't married to the business as usual in Washington.. Is he perfect?? Far from it but the other choice shouldn't even be considered.. I even thought about voting libertarian as I did in the last election but that is just a waste of your vote.. As far as Hillary winning I believe it will be a very close race.. I seriously think Trump will squeak it out.. There are many many people that will vote for Trump but will never admit it..

    And many will vote for Hillary ... if noting more then to keep Trump away from an almost certain destruction of this country.

    The same arguments ... debt, unkept promises and all the derogatory comments on a sitting President, just show the fear.
    Fear is an extension of the well used propaganda machine.
    "The only thing we have to fear is...fear itself — nameless, unreasoning, unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance."
    All those that continue the propagnada, strappy, bean and others, know much of what is said are lies.
    They are blinded by the hatred, the fear, and the loathing for a person, a party, and the change this country will always go though.

    I still don't think that Trump will be the nominee. But regardless of who gets elected the republic will survive.

    I think my first vote was Perot. I was registered Independent and remained so till this primary.
    I was raised in a union house with a stubborn union father who was very quick to display anger from deep inside at any anti-union talk. Skin as maroon as a lobster. Teeth gritted and growls like an animal at anti-union talk.
    Religion is for good people in his eyes like my mom and daughters. He attends Mass for mom but. only sees the Church as somebody out to get money.
    I got away from religion in school but came back when raising a family.
    Mom said Church is important. You need it at birth. For marriage. At death. You need it so should go.
    TV is as much a moral guide to her as Church though.
    They vote who the UAW supports...that would be Dems.
    Dad always viewed life as the union got him everything in life and the company gave him nothing. They only give what the union forced them to give. He has no love for his companies but spends time with his fellow UAW retirees. It's important to him.

    Where I'm at now is anti-progressive.
    My favorite teacher is Buchanan and he never needs to mention unions to hold that spot.
    I've seen men like Romney wreck this area and the country.
    Obama was the lesser evil.
    My thoughts lean to what I, personally view as Catholic, but to what the Church itself doesn't always seem to.
    I'm no longer lovey covey but was an all inclusive type raised by classic rock radio/media ideology.
    I see the flaws with age.
    And as nutty or stupid as it sounds my cure for today's problems comes from farther right than the people who claim to be righties.
    I consider progressive ideology as root problem.
    I consider Jewish influence as opposed to Catholic influence, a major problem today.
    I consider concern for Israel a major problem.
    Catholicism had functioned under fascists and nationalists....but is attacked and extinguished under extreme Communist and socialist policy. State replaces Church. Man replaces religion. Ugliness follows.
    Communism and socialism has foundations from the Jewish people...Marx Trotsky .....people who I think quit practicing..and shot for ideals to bring all together. Good intentions..but it never works.
    The us was also founded that way...but it doesn't seem to be working anymore either.
    We have no separation between church and state when the government has become the church.
    With Christianity divided it leaves it wide open for the Jews to rule...and they do. It's in their blood. I don't think Christ liked where they took the world. And I see it as they've also taken us to unlikable places now imo.
    They influence both sides to protect their people...all the while weakening Catholic ideology in the people and in policy.
    Do I hate them? If it means I want them physically harmed...no.
    But I do want them opposed.
    Just as many want Islam and Catholic ideology opposed.
    Tariffs and making America great again and leaving NATO and not empire building are all Buchanan policies.....Trump has my vote now.
    If you don't look out for your own...nobody else will. They will use and take and strengthen themselves and weaken you..

    A diffence between Judaism and Catholicism is having a top guy. The Pope......much simpler for us gentiles to understand.
    I don't think Judaism has that....hence the complicated world of legalities and bickering and technicalities and complications. A world where everyone is boss and the rules so thick that it almost seems there are none.
    No rock of stability.....a constant kicking of puppies to see who gets the mother dogs milk.

    slavenomore, I can't agree with everything you just wrote but it's a great post................. I also have a lot of respect for Pat Buchanan's views. Do you know if Trump has ever quoted or acknowledged Buchanan?

    I've heard Trump sounbytes acknowledging and thanking Pat. I can't think that Trump's running has been only his idea. He's been involved with the reform party or one of them others that Pat was in and left because of the associations of racism involved. Pat and David Duke were in so Trump left....a good political move. Maybe his own moral choice.

    I have respect all the posts on this site and even try to see the "why's " even if I disagree.
    Pat has been labeled antiSemite and that reason alone, with the Jewish influence in every aspect of our lives.....was a key factor in his loss.
    Trump has been wise on that.
    He knows the danger and can't possibly play a major antiSemite stance because his own children converted to Judaism.
    It's quite obvious Trump won't bow down to the Pope either.
    One that won't bow to Israel or the Pope....gives a better future imo....than the neverending stream of political Ian's who've catered to Israel alone going back decades now.

    Trump is smart...he knew David Duke would give him immediate benefit in Southern primaries...then gave him no attention as primaries moved on.
    Pat's a Catholic and has opposed Israel's power in DC. Trump is smart enough to know not to get too close to Pat before being elected imo.
    The media will destroy him for it.
