The liberal mindset is outbreeding the conservative mindset in many of the major city areas. Its coming...

It wont end until we run out of "free" stuff.

Come election day, I think a lot of repubs will hold their nose and vote for the guy, and Texas will be an easy state for trump.
I agree completely with this...

This is so false. How is that Trump shooting himself if the allegations are not true?

And the better question is why in hades do people ignore all the illegal things Hillary does? She's 100x worse but people act like Trump is the devil when he has a bad hair day.

Two of the 17 candidates, Ted Cruz and Rick Perry, were from Texas; two others, Jeb Bush and Rand Paul, have deep roots and extensive networks in the state; a fifth, Carly Fiorina, was born here; a sixth, Rick Santorum, lives in Dallas part of the time. All of those candidates were ultimately defeated by a rival from New York who thinks Laredo, a city of several hundred thousand people founded eleven years before the American Revolution, is a remote and scary destination."

For the record, I don't plan on voting for either one. But, instead of blaming the media, maybe the Republican leadership should find a candidate that is worth a ****.

im not voting for who i think will win. im voting for the person that my conscience will allow.

All great points. When the Trump train starts blaming they need to look in the mirror.

Every time trump opens his mouth he shoots himself in the foot.

Is Hillary worse? Sure, no disagreement, but Trump is yugely, bigly bad as well.

The Trump voters put him in that spot. So the Trump supporters own this defeat?

The fallacy here is we won't run out. We will become a slave to higher and higher taxes (and inflation) for years to come. Name any other country that went liberal that changed course...you can't I don't think.
