    Well, Nikos I have a hard time supporting the boozers on the list. We can't have drunkards running the show.

    Trump won't get the GOP nod anyway, he is only waking people up, a good thing.

He's not going to take excuses and he's very practical. He has a keen eye on what the problems are in the country, and isn't afraid to face down special lobbyists if they don't comport with common sense and an eye on making this nation great again. He's not part of the political class and wants to solve problems, and would probably move heaven and earth to do it.

    That in particular is refreshing. I would love to see him have Ben Carson as VP as a good balance, but who knows what the future holds? When the US blows up in a spectacular fashion, the next election season will bring out all sorts of woes and the Church needs to pray for the right problem-solver to be elected, and not some marxist schill with an eye on rebuilding the next soviet republic with white people as the enemy to all people of color. This nation has had enough of that divide and conquer and are sick of it.

    But, as I already said....Trump is refreshing in that I do believe he honestly wants to solve the nation's problems. People really like that he's NOT a politician. OTOH, he's arrogant, crass, and a bit immature. But he's hard-nosed, driven, and wants to get stuff done, which are excellent qualities.
    Obama wants to fix the nations problems too but his value system and the principles he subscribes too will ruin the nation . For whatever reason Catchy tends to like these "Tell it like it is full of bluster and brim" type candidates like Trump, Chris Christie etc . In my opinion that stiff wears of after a while and the candidates are exposed for their weaknesses

    Trump really isn't that deep and most of his responses are pretty light and "surfacey" . Yeah the soundbites and the drama may be refreshing in certain contexts but they ignore a lot of realities which I don't think he himself grasps . And truth be told there is very little about hims that's truly conservative . His conservatism to the degree that it exists is a matter of convenience rather than depth

    In all sincerity I don't think he himself thought he would be doing this well. I think he just wanted to have a little fun get under Obama and Hilary's skin and draw attention to himself which is what he craves but the campaign kinda took on a life of it's own when republicans started attacking him thus turning him into a martyr of sorts

    For "whatever reason", Catchyusername likes bluntness, honesty, and more than anything, Catchy likes people who don't cower in the face of a very hostile media. That's what Catchy likes. Either you bluntly stand by your convictions, or you don't. These mealy-mouthed wimps that are currently in politics wouldn't know what that means if you paid them....lots of money.

    Trump has no convictions. And that's the truth! He is just windy and will say whatever.

    I hear you on that point but in that case it's people like Huckabee, Carson and Cruz that fit that criteria .. they have been pretty consistent with their convictions even if the winds dont blow in their favor..

    For people like Trump and Chris Christie it's all a calculated act . At the end of the day when Christie thought it politically expedient he hugged up on Obama faster than you could say Chris . Yes he can stand and berate lowly reporters who get on his nerves but when the piper calls he dances to the tune just like the rest of them

    Yeah, I never really understood the TRump bandwagon either. I mean Christians who started out supporting Ben Carson all of a sudden began supporting Trump. Never understood how someone could move one's support away froma solid brother-inChrist to a person who simply sounds off as a TRUMP-et (yeah, I tried to be funny here. Probably did not succeed )

    From a purely pragmatic view my understanding is it will take nearly a BILLION DOLLARS to successively campaign for prez and while Ben Carson is a thoughtful and decent man he faces what the rest of them do, making deals. The only one who seems to be immune from that is Trump and while I don't think he would be a good prez in a lot of areas, he may just be the detergent needed to clean up DC.

    Yeah, I know Trump has the MONEY to run a campaign, but I am not sure if he will be able to clean up DC (depending on how we define "clean-up"). Without the power to fire every member of the senate and congress and no power to undo OBama's last supreme court judges, his only chance of getting anything done would be to be completely dependent on God (which means praying and listening and then taking the action God tells him). Throwing one's money around can only get you so far, even in DC. Despite the fact that Obama has reigned as king supreme there in DC, it is still a government of supposedly "checks and balances" and if the "checks" don't like Trump then none of his bucks will bring him the "balance" he wants.

    UNless he has enough money in the bank to bribe most of the members of the house.

    I just think he is exposing the sham, it will be up to the people to listen. When was the last time you heard a legitimate candidate talk about how easy it is to buy the other guys? On his immigration page he calls Marco Rubio "Zuckerbergs personal senator", that's rich.

    A little sunlight on these shady critters can't be all bad.
