I would like just a few remaining questions answered before I am willing to renounce #nevertrump
It seems most of the Republican Party, from those we otherwise like (Perry, Jindal, etc) to those we despise (Graham) have fallen in line to support the personal and professional failure, lifelong liberal that we have as the presumptive nominee. I would like to give in and support him. After all, who doesn’t like being on the winning team? This is a common phenomenon in sports. | Read More »

So and so is the true RINO
[Promoted and bumped. Also: HAHAHA! – Moe Lane] So and so has changed positions on more issues than my favorite candidate. Sure, my favorite candidate has changed positions as well, but their changes were the result of experience and wisdom gained while my favorite candidate went through their singularly unique path to the presidency. Reagan is a good example. So and so, on the other | Read More »
