Not Today, Not Tomorrow, Not Ever, will I ever vote for Donald Trump.  I have come to the conclusion that Donald you are my sword to fall on even if means putting Hillary into White House.  You see a “A vote for Trump is a vote for a democrat go third party if he is the nominee”.  Those are the words of Erick Erickson over at his new site The Resurgent.  I agree I will stand on my principles with my vote, I will not vote for a perceived lessor of two evils scenario.  Here are Erick’s quick hits on Trump.

Donald Trump is a Democrat.

He has given vastly more money to Democrat causes. He supported late term and partial birth abortion until a conversion of convenience to secure Republican votes.

He was for open borders until that issue worked against him in Republican primaries.

He is friends with Hillary and Bill Clinton, who he called before getting into the Republican primary.

He opposed tea party, conservative candidates in 2010 and 2014.

A vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump is a vote for Democrats in November.

I will vote for a third party candidate if Donald Trump is the Republican nominee. Because if he is, there is no meaningful difference between the Democrats and Republicans.

Here Erick digs into more detail about his reasoning.  This could be the only way we actually get people to stop the insanity of supporting this megalomaniac is if they realize that such an overwhelming majority of the base will not support him in the general that winning primaries with 30% of vote is meaningless.  That he is just marching us all off the Clinton cliff.  I love the way Erick ends this article.

Donald Trump has had no “road to Damascus” conversion. He only wants to date the preacher’s daughter. Once he’s gotten in her ballot box, he’ll be back to his pro-abortion New York values self. I’ll play no part in this farce.


China Snubs North Korea.  We keep hearing how China is the roadblock in reigning in the crazies who are running North Korea and threatening to plunge the world into a nuclear war.  We would love to (insert politicians lie here) but we just can not threaten our relationship with the Chinese.  Well it sounds like China may have had enough of all the mayhem on its border.  China who is the North’s only significant economic ally has frozen all the assets of all of the North Korean citizens deposited in their banks.  Funny even communists do not want to see they’re trade system interrupted by the delusions of mad man with a Napoleon complex.  Question is will this change anything? Can North Korea survive with out China’s support?


#blacklivesmatter: If Frederick Douglass were still alive, would the greatest abolitionist this country has ever known post the popular “hashtag” on his Twitter feed.  Now listen I understand that you can take any historical figure and try to bend and twist they’re words to fit into whatever point you want to make.  When someone is dead for a few hundred years you can get away with anything.  But I really enjoyed this article over on TownHall.com discussing Mr. Douglass and the true racism of modern day politics.

Where stands the black community, today, in America? Does it stand with the corrupt Hillary Clintons of the world who celebrate the likes of anti-human eugenicist Margaret Sanger? Does it stand with the Democrat party that demands the most violent form of injustice and calls it “reproductive freedom”? Does it stand with the NAACP (aka the National Association for the Abortion of Colored People) that decries voter suppression but supports the daily killing of 1,000 would-be black voters in abortion mills nationwide? Does it stand with a fundamentally dishonest hashtag movement, #BlackLivesMatter, that pretends today’s American society is more racist than 150 years ago? Does it stand with Planned Parenthood who is the leading killer of unarmed black lives today?

The answers to all of these are sadly, and overwhelmingly, yes.


I Am Scared Of Aliens.  Not illegal ones… extraterrestrial ones! (sometimes illegal ones are scary I know but stay with me).  Ever since I was little my biggest fear is being abducted by aliens, or having my town invaded by little grey men.  I think the reason is the helplessness of it all.  A superior race of beings who could treat us like ants.  I like being on top of the food chain, the view is nice up here. So this headline caught my eye.   Apollo astronauts who orbited the moon two months before Neil Armstrong’s famous 1969 landing heard mysterious and unexplainable ‘music’ on its far side, out of the range of Earthly radio transmissions, it has emerged.  The truth is out there, I just hope the truth is that we are alone.


Look forward to hearing from all you Red Staters today.  Remember this is an open thread, discuss the posts above or what ever makes you happy… or angry… just nothing you are indifferent about, that would be boring.
