  1. Not directed at you really...I just hear this line of reasoning so often from my so-called progressive friends (which basically all my friends are). They treat religion as a don't ask, don't tell issue and are more suspicious of a person of faith than a person like Clinton (who I think is a liar).

    Its not just that she is a liar, but I feel she knowingly did most of what she's accused of. Dems are turning on her. What is the guy from the Atlanta Journal? Eugene Robinson? who is, and should be, somewhat disgusted by her if I'm reading what he says correctly.

  2. I don't know, does being a career politician translate into being a good president? As for his life story I do think it provides him more insight than the the average white politician and was significant in developing many of his views.

    I don't think it does. Reagan wasn't really a career politician and even some Dems liked him. Obama likes to liken himself after him at times.

    From what I've read/heard over a long time is the founders wanted ordinary people to come and serve and go back to their careers. I could be wrong on that. But we've come to basically elect doctors and lawyers most likely because of their money. It costs a lot of money to run an election. How much for a Prez now? Please don't say a billion.

    We have lifelong politicians that can't stop the IRS from paying refunds to 1 single address in Lithuania over 600 times? Are you friggin kidding me? Why can't these great career politicians fix that?

    Some people are fed up and are willing to try something different. Even if posters on this site say we reflect how stupid voters have become if we support Trump. I think it was Oblong or something.

    With the check and balances that are supposedly in place, although I question them after the last 4 years, we should be able to survive a private sector approach to governing. Give what some of us feel the founders had in mind a shot. If its wrong, so be it. Trump probably won't make it anyway. I expect he will step in something that will end his run. And I will simply move on to the next person that wants to change DC.

  3. It's all Jesus based really. If you throw the name Jesus out there, agree to let the bible dictate public policy and you flaunt how much holier you are than thou, extremely religious evangelical types will support you in waves.

    Obama had his religious rhetoric down. He did the religious out of one side of his mouth and then said religious people cling to their guns and bibles, or something like that, out of the other side.

    He said Christians need to get off their high horse and then have the lame stream media defend him if peeps asked if he was really a Christian.

    Odumba had it both ways. Great politician when you have the lame stream media on your side.

  4. He is until he's kicked out.

    My guess, GUESS, is that he has independent support.

    Eff Chuck Todd couldn't believe, he was astounded, that he found Dems that criticized Hillary for the email thing. I'm thinking especial because MSNBC doesn't cover it. Or at least doesn't cover for anything other than their 'VRWC' accusations.

    A later report said that some Inds were also leaving her and going to...TRUMP! lol

  5. Unfortunately, this is true. All these politicians do is stoke the flames of hatred against the other party. It seems you can't get elected president unless you play that game.

    I blame the voters, not the politicians.

    EDIT: I believe there are good people that I would love to see become president, but they'd never get elected. And even if they could get elected......congress.

    Not sure the good people would even want to run in the first place. The Dem and Repub establishment controls a lot of who even makes it

  6. Then I'm silly, personally I'd like to see how he looks. He's older, coming from a new team, and is already injured.

    I'd either like to see him suit up or maybe a couple clauses in the contract to protect the Lions or performance clauses.

    But we traded for him and don't mind increasing the guaranteed money a little bit to make him a happy Ngata. :)
