donald riotsIt appears that Donald Trump believes if he were to go to the convention with a strong lead,  that he should automatically be declared the Republican Party nominee.  His argument goes--If he were not to receive the nomination after the primary and caucus process, then the will of the people will be undermined and the result could be riots.

He is not alone in believing that only he should be chosen the GOP nominee.  His followers approve of his speaking out against illegal immigration, putting a hold on any Muslim entering the country, denouncing free-trade agreements, not being beholden to any contributor, standing up to institutions that fail and speaking his mind, without borders of caution.  They feel that any act by party leaders and others who would undermine his nomination would be betraying democracy.

 

Yet, there are millions who are concerned of a Trump presidency for many reasons.  Trump and many of his followers paint them as being protectors of political correctness, violators of free-speech, and promoters of policies that has crippled the country--making it a 3rd world nation.

He easily paints many of these people in very simply terms--as “bad people” and his followers as being “good”.   His followers are the supporters of decency and peace while those opposing him are the rules-breakers and violators of human decency. 

Above is a short video I created that discusses these issues.

Crouere: Dump Trump means a President Hillary Clinton

The hysteria coming from GOP conservative purists and party insiders about Donald Trump is reaching ridiculous proportions. Talk show host Glenn Beck has compared the Republican frontrunner to Hitler, while Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse has thundered that he will never support Trump if he is the nominee.

  • A July 4th Fact of Facts: America is Land of Immigrants
  • Poll: Trump strong on jobs, weak on tweets, viewed as reckless, thin-skinned, sexist
  • President Trump, It doesn't feel like Independence Day
  • YIPPIE! The naked truth about free speech, cherished especially on Independence Day

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
