I truly hope that if Trump wins the nomination, whatever is left of the moderate Republican party jumps ship and forms their own third party.

THIS

I could honestly care less about Trump, but it's the folks that are supporting him that scare me and embarrass me. They've been duped by one of the biggest cons in recent US history. They've allowed their ignorance, fear, and hatred to fuel their blind support for someone that doesn't even hold their "principles" or "values". It cracks me up that they've allowed their hypocrisy to be so prevalent, but it angers me to think they'll allow our country to burn and become the laughing stock of western civilization.

i think you're dealing with a group of people who feel very, very scared. they are traumatized by the Great Depression, 9/11, worldwide terror attacks, the skyrocketing price of education, housing, and health care, the fact that it is no longer possible for most to raise a family on a single income, and a black president.

that's why Trump's fascism authoritarianism appeals to some. these are the type of people who think they need semiautomatics to defend their homes.

the reality is that things really aren't all that bad, but that doesn't get ratings or round up caucus votes.

sex sells. but so does fear. lots and lots of fear.

Rick Scott floated as potential running mate for Donald Trump - Florida Politics

An exciting turn in Florida politics -- just months after shitty state senator Marco Rubio conceded his senate position for a presidential run, shitty state governor Rick Scott is being vetted by the Trump campaign as a potential VP pick!!!

Technically, Scott wouldn't have to resign, but Lord Scott sure is hated by a lot of Floridians for his damage to our social progress and education system. This sure would throw wood into the fire.



Fuck you, Scott Voldemort. You piece of shit snake ass bitch. You haven't done shit for our state. Your only political opponent was a former Republican who was ejected by your shitty party for being a dried up apricot, who is equally as detestable of a human being.

Please, Trump campaign, take him away. Imagine... a Florida where the governor could be blue... both senate seats could be blue... and maybe even the reps could be majority blue! I have an insatiable hate for the Republican Party of Florida.

The interesting thing about Trump is he doesn't seem to be losing support if you look at the primaries or believe the media, but seems to be losing plenty of support if I look at the micro level of my life. He's lost 2 out of his 3 supporters in here, my Facebook feed that was once filled with Trump support has almost none, in fact it has now some outspoken conservatives speaking out against him, and his yard signs are being replaced with Rubio and Cruz signs around here at a fast pace.

Trickle-down stupidity. When it first started, it was all like "oh this is a good thing -- an outsider putting the stupid establishment in its place -- spread the word."

It's striking the difference between 2008 and 2016.

After 8 years of the dumpster fire that was W, with the economy crumbling, Barack Obama ran on hope.

After 8 years of economic recovery, Trump runs on fear and hate.

I'd rather have 4 more years of W than 4 years of Trump or Cruz.

Yeah but those responding to fear have all been living in a vacuum of right wing news for 8 years. They believe a Muslim is in the WH, science is witchcraft, and that half the country is on welfare.

Hey hey easy there. I detest the Republican Party of Florida, but Rick Scott has an extraordinarily special place for hate in my heart. Independent of the party he belongs to, he's just such a terrible human being.

Mind we forget that the leading Republican nominee for President of the United States of America raped his wife.
