exactly, and along with that line of thinking the nerertrump people rethink that position also

if one asked a Clinton supporter if they could find them voting for Sanders in Nov, many will say no, because that would mean he destroyed her and put her away when they feel passionately about her.


Come Nov would Clinton supporters want Trump to win??

These politically active people are just going to let that happen??

The great thing about expectations, is that they're rarely ever met.

I don't expect the GOP to rally around Trump. Their focus will be on 2020

Gingrich, Kasich, Rubio are top three stocks in the GOP VP market on predictit.org

My guess is we will wait and see how the race evolves over the next 2 months. How head to head polling trends. Trump has stated he wants an established politician not an outsider.

As Christians, we cannot in good conscience vote for a candidate that thumbs his nose at the morality that the Bible calls us to, that up until recently supported abortion, celebrates his multiple divorces, and that treats others "created in God's image" as poorly as he does. He is a wolf in wolf's clothing.
We must vote in a way that is consistent with our convictions and world view. To fail to do so in order to try and accept the lesser of two evils is to deny scripture and the power of the living God.
“Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God.” Romans 13:1 NASB
I will vote, because I think it is a right that we have been privileged to by our creator, but I don't know who I will write in yet. That means my candidate won't win this election. But my God will win at the end of all of this and that's what I am more concerned with.

This is the cut and paste I see cropping all over Facebook, there will be no unifying behind Trump. If the "establishment" get behind him they know they've lost the party and the "principled" can't stand him. In order to flip states you need high turn out, these people will write in, scramble for a 3rd party ticket, or more than likely stay home.

Gingrich would be a good choice.
I'd vote for Trump/Gingrich

I don't think Ted would be comfortable in a black robe. Might clash with the white one in his closet.

Not a lot of bloodshed with Kasich, certainly a lot less comparatively speaking to Lyin' Ted, Little Marco, M&M Stashing Chris, Pyramid Ben et al.

So he might be a possibility.

Maybe Carly Fiorina, she now has lots of experience running a vice presidential campaign.

Newt and I love women. We're the best at women. Between the two of us; we've had 6 of the best marriages any president has ever had.

Today, this week, next week is not the time for realistic speculation. A lot of people will be sitting back and watching. They will be wanting to see if the Donald can dial it back, appear more presidential and get his approval numbers up and disapproval down a bit. A move of a few points in the right direction will encourage a lot of people, because once he starts to move, get out of the way!

So that's your opinion, and it must be a fact because your facebook backs it up.
Forget, that Trump has won evangelical Christians over Cruz in most of the primaries, even the bible belt, that's my opinion based on good sourcing of reading credible newspapers and multiple news reporting agencies,
That sounds like a Glenn Beck posting, and you recently said you respect him,
but based on his record with his big Indiana push, I don't think he is a reliable source for sound opinions.

It's my speculation based on this and a lot of other anecdotal evidence.

I guess I could just speculate without any examples of why

And no, I said I respect one of his stances. But you're really getting this Trump thing down, even dumbing down your reading comprehension skills.

Look we are all entitled to our opinions in here, as I have said before,
you like many of us, have been posting in here for some time. I know the road you go down to reach your opinions, no big deal.

But the other day, you seemed to post that others did not have the right to
post their opinions unless you found it credible based on sources you would accept.

I don't care that your opinions are not always credible, they're just your opinion, any reasonable person would move away from an opinion if they got better credible information instead of doubling down, but to each their own.

I can see it now.
Big ad with Trump and Newt surrounded by women. With Trump saying "look, women cherish us, believe me. Women cherish us so much that we have to keep getting new wives. We get the best wives."

Just think, if we had elected Newt back in 2012 we'd be that much closer to a colony on the moon.

I actually can't gripe too much about Newt's moon talk. There are so many dangers/issues facing humanity, and while he was laughed at for building a colony off of Earth....it really should be a serious option.

But I'm not sure I want to go down that discussion

This is going to be a fascinating election. So much to learn/study from

Yeah, I guess I was assuming people understood the difference between speculation and holding an opinion on an issue or candidate. But I guess it's true what they say about assumptions.


I'm not sure what you think I doubled down on. But defending Trump and lecturing someone on doubling down; that's comic gold

again, I was an avid supporter of Hillary 2008, I believed she would have been a cpmpetent president then after the worst 8 years ever under W-Cheney, the 90s Clintons had led a good 8 year presidency.

Now, Hillary 2016 is not the same person and this is a different time,
