    Thus, the uninformed shall remain and vulnerable to believe Hillary’s nonsense.

      They luxuriate in their ignorance and the pretty sounding words that spew forth from that woman’s mouth. I don’t just love all that Trump says, but THAT WOMAN has been PROVEN to be guilty, and 1/2 the voters LOVE her. As a woman, I am deeply offended at the idea that elections are about creating historical firsts. What is this obsession w/ electing the first this, the first that, and etc. If we keep focus on electing firsts, We may as well go ahead and elect the first president not born in America (no reference to birthers intended). If qualification, intellect, honesty, etc. aren’t our only concerns, we will soon elect our first corpse. Why not when so many vote? EVERYONE SHOULD HAVE REPRESENTATION (sarc.) I want my daughter to see a woman president, but only when she is the American version of Margaret Thatcher….NOT Hiliary.

        The only thing I would take issue with is that half the voters love Hillary. They don’t. She is not a likable candidate, but a candidate doesn’t have to be likable to earn a vote. I think a bunch of people will hold their nose and vote for Hillary … just as someone will do the same with Donald.

    when I encounter people that boldly and even proudly tell me they never watch news and have no idea what I’m talking about on a fairly important topic of the day, I mourn our republic. THEY STILL VOTE! It amazes me that people, who can’t be bothered to avail themselves of ANY news w/ all the 24/7 options available, will still bother to waddle down to the poll to vote. I wonder if they ever studied before a final exam or just showed up, took it, and hoped for the best. Based on the condition of the nation, I figure that is pretty much how they handled their academics and maybe life in general.THEY DON’T CARE!

    I misspoke. I meant 1/2 the women voters. The women who fawn over the possibility of electing the first woman offend me to the core. I just want someone not thoroughly corrupted and in bed w/ the military industrial complex. Like I said the idea of “first” is not my goal. I don’t want to be the first one to war with Russia. I don’t know what Trump will do. I don’t know what ANY advocate for change in Washington CAN do. We DO know what HILIARY will do though. Anyone that votes for her should be the FIRST to lose the job, insurance, home, etc. they have and like when that woman does what we all know she will. I remember when jobs fell from the sky, and anyone halfway trying could do well for themselves. This woman will ensure that wont be the case for at least 4 more yrs. Any young person struggling now and the last 8 yrs should have their heads examined if anything but economic and national security is on their minds when they vote. How long do they want to live in Mom’s basement? Trump may not be nice, but neither was Teddy Roosevelt. He could Never get elected now. Too much hunting would offend the delicate sensibilities of today.

      Thanks for the clarification. I’m with you.

        I can give a pass to the youngest of voters. Little experience leaves them w/ unrealistic ideas about how the world can or does function. Could someone PLEASE help me understand the person that continues to support stupidity looooong after it has been outed and they have managed to b/c matured adults? How does one w/ a family continue to support the party that has sold their children to the teachers unions? How does one give birth and still support someone that hangs w/ the crowd that calls an unborn baby a “parasitic infection or lump of tissue”? The left’s ideology is appealing to the young (myself once upon a time), but any grown up that has done anything of any REAL value in the world can see how evil the policies are and how corrupt the politicians are. Anytime taking from one to give to another is ok or one is redefining right regularly, corruption is a natural outcome. HEY! Young People! Right is ALWAYS right and wrong is ALWAYS wrong. Don’t like it? Grow up! Big boy/girl pants aren’t THAT uncomfortable….well, ok, they are, but put ’em on anyway. Skinny jeans are just silly after high school.
