The modern-day left-wing RADICALS who protest against the people who live in mansions like these…take money from people who live in mansions like these!
So, you want to PROTEST Trump? And…?
Are you going to make us aware of something about Trump WE DON’T ALREADY KNOW? WHAT IS your point? (Apart from exercising your democratic right to protest, to gather, to speak — which, incidentally, you try to DENY to others.)
Do you have some shocking EXPOSE about Trump? For example: is Trump really Satan in disguise — OR Hitler OR Elvis? Or even Tupac?
IF you are going to proclaim that Trump is misogynistic, bombastic, racist, imperialist, narcissistic, unrealistic, an attention-getter, race-baiter, not to mention jet-setter…WE KNOW!!!
We TRULY don’t NEED you to point out Mr. Trump’s flaws. Those of us who’ve been following the Primaries, debates and Caucuses, news and talk-shows…we KNOW. Even people who are NOT following just know – it’s blowing in the wind! CAN’t miss it!
We’re unlikely to see a placard at your protest and go: “Oooohh – No Wall!” So, you want to occupy the Capitol and will “demand that Congress listen to the People and take immediate action to save our democracy. And we won’t leave until they do or until they send thousands of us to jail.”
Bring paper to write your last will and testament – or enough money for bail. Plan to say there until you die! Or someone sells something on eBay to raise money to bail you…
I don’t see Mitch McConnell or Jeff Sessions granting any concessions to you…that they won’t give to President Obama. Or maybe they’ll turn tail and run….who knows?
Now why would thousands of you want to go to jail to make Congress LISTEN to you. How stupid is that? There is a much EASIER WAY to make Congress listen to you. It’s called an Election and it’s coming up in November. If you VOTE in the same masses that you are protesting with – then the political landscape will change…and Congress will listen.
Sending “thousands” of you to jail means building MORE jails which you oppose! Don’t BE silly…well, I know it’s HARD, but, really – DON’T be silly! Try!!!
Maybe, you will cause a riot and Trump’s supports will go: “Just look at those free-speech killing Liberals trying to trump Trump. Let’s go home. I really can’t vote for somebody that Liberals don’t like!”
Please stay home! DO NOT go to Philly, (Philadelphia) the City of Brotherly Love, to DISRUPT Trump…
Do not interfere with Trump…LEAVE Trump alone.
Nothing you do will derail Trump. Everything you do may likely STRENGTHEN Trump. In addition, you will make Democrats look bad. Crazy commies!
Republicans are already HANDING you the election gift-wrapped with a “you’re fired” bow! Why is it so hard for you to be quiet – and silent – and just watch!? Why must you always want to do? WHY?
I loathe extremes, equally…be they anarchists on the LEFT or Separatists on the RIGHT!
Mr. Soros, republicans claim YOU are funding the anti-Trump Protesters. If you really, really want to help…let me count the ways:
• I need a house. Nothing expensive. Just 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, biggish yard, could probably fit on your patio…
• Many of the “protesters” need help with their student/other loans
• Help some families facing foreclosure
• Come to Boston and pay for Summer Camp for inner city kids
• Housing groups desperately NEED funding to help tenants fight off higher rents and displacement due to gentrification
• Help build a pleasant housing complex for the working poor who are being displaced by sky-high rents
• Firefighters need new equipment
• Police need money to run stay-out-of-trouble programs for troubled kids
• Excellent, non-egoistic third-party candidates need funding
• Need I go on?
Rupert Murdoch (glasses) net worth: 12 Billion and George Soros…23 Billion
Far be it for ME to tell those “millionaires and billionaires” on Wall Street whose greed is killing America (are you on Wall Street Mr. Soros?) HOW to spend their money – but we’d all be BETTER SERVED…if you invested in the above…instead of chaos!
No hatin’ in the city of Brotherly Love, bro…
We’d ALSO be better off if Rupert Murdock hadn’t imposed his “outlook” (to put it mildly) on America (via Fox News) and ended up making half the population hate each other. I think Murdock and Fox News (News? ha!) are largely responsible for creating today’s GOP chaos. Let’s not have another millionaire or billionaire starting another trend. Think politics BEFORE Fox…
PS: Any groups want to protest that one person owns so much living space? I will fund those protests…shouldn’t cost more that $20. I can afford that…

I would like someone, anyone, particularly republicans (and especially Ted Cruz) TO EXPLAIN TO ME HOW ON EARTH he plans to WIN a general election…across an America that does NOT give a fig about his brand of “values” especially those that say gays should NOT be able to marry whomever they choose – and that undocumented immigrants should be rounded up and deported even if they’ve lived in the U.S. for decades!
(I’m not asking how Cruz plans to campaign and what his strategy is). I just want Cruz to explain to me:
1. WHICH are THE states that he sees himself WINNING in a general election?
2. More specifically, among the states that President Obama won, which are the ones Cruz sees will go to him in 2016 ?
3. Does he see himself winning California, New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts etc?
4. Does Cruz see himself winning over Democrats and Independents?
5. Does Cruz see himself winning the BLACK vote?
6. Does Cruz see himself winning the Hispanic vote?
7. Does Cruz see himself winning the Immigrant vote?
8. Does Cruz see himself winning with the Gay/Transgender community?
9. Or do republicans think that they can win a presidential election with only the “conservative” vote?
10. Does Cruz understand that he is winning with only the Tea Party faction within the Republican Party?Unlike Donald Trump, he has so far NOT pulled in a diverse demographic.
Moderate, aka “Establishment” republicans DON’T like Cruz – they don’t want him as their nominee. (Yes, they’re now saying they may hold their nose and vote for him just to oppose Donald Trump) but HE is not their first or even second or any choice. But he thinks that the nation likes him – when his own republicans find him too extreme!
11. The Republican Party is a joke – it has long tried to SUPPRESS voting by poor people, minorities/immigrants. NOW it’s coming up with ways to try to suppress voting by its OWN republicans. That should be easy give the GOP’s history!
The God republicans like to laud so much (when it suits them) is indeed alive — and laughing!
The way I see it, even if every old or poorly educated or rural Tea Party white person who’s never voted turns out to vote for Cruz, (will Trump’s coalition vote for Cruz?) he still needs the rest of us, don’t he? Or do he?
Maybe he don’t – bring it on!
I can already see the ads reminding us about the government shutdown…and threatened shutdowns…and NO compromise…and the efforts he led, SUCCESSFULLY, to DERAIL Immigration Reform and to CHALLENGE Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) and to BLOCK President Obama’s executive Order on Immigration.
Hispanics, the fastest growing voting bloc, just LOVE Ted Cruz. Trump says he would deport the undocumented and “let them come back” with conditions. Cruz says: I’ll round you up and DEPORT you and you can take your U.S. born kids with you plus YOU WILL NOT EVER COME BACK IF I CAN HELP IT! Such Christian charity and compassion…such values!
As of 2013, Cuban immigrants made up nearly 3-percent of the immigrants living in America…that’s MORE than a million Cuban immigrants who, incidentally, are NOT taking U.S. jobs – they’re all somehow working in Florida for Fidel Castro. (I’m NOT bashing YOU, Cuban immigrant. I’m an immigrant too! Just calling out Cruz on immigrants taking U.S. jobs!)
Like I said: BRING IT ON!
Because democrats may not be flocking to the Primaries like republicans are right now, but rest assured, a nominee Cruz WOULD BRING every old or poorly educated or urban black, Hispanic, immigrant, gay person out of the woodwork too!
Did I say “bring it on!”? Let’s cruise…Cruz!

OK, here’s my serious take on the Republican MELTDOWN…
Republican voters are watching debates and Town Halls, attending rallies, listening to the candidates and VOTING FOR Trump and IT IS NOT THE PURVIEW OF THE REPUBLICAN HIERARCHY to “Pick and Choose” the candidate…(this also applies to DEMOCRATS, as well. If voters choose Bernie Sanders or George Orwell (definitely not a republican) then THAT’S the candidate the party has to settle for, LIKE IT OR NOT!).
If party leaders, in their wisdom or arrogance think that voters are irrelevant, then why go through the SHAM of a Primary?
THAT is a problem with the Political Ruling Class right there – and one of the many reasons why things DON’T work in Washington and elsewhere and why voters ON BOTH SIDES are so disgusted with politics. AND, why only certain types of candidates get elected or are PROPOSED for election – and why “We THE People” end up with MORE of the same.
Putting Democrats ON NOTICE: I’m giving you a pass with Hillary because (a) I think it’s time for a Female in the White House and (b) I want to give Republicans indigestion for another 8 years…but AFTER Hillary, Democrats/Democratic National Committee, AFTER Hillary, we no longer want MORE OF THE SAME! You have 8-years to get that house in order.
Seems to me that VOTERS apparently are NOT the ones choosing candidates – seems the PARTIES are choosing the candidates and voters are just granting their seal of approval. Many people understand that – but now it’s become glaringly OBVIOUS to all.
Example: I just watched a spokesperson for a group of republican foreign policy analysts and campaign advisers say PROUDLY, that Trump basically is a moron and his foreign policy is a disaster and they have decided that NONE of them will help Trump OR WORK FOR HIM if he wins! How about doing it IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE COUNTRY?
Does that help you understand now WHY they have worked so diligently to BLOCK President Obama’s agenda – to destabilize Obama and cause him to FAIL, even if that means America also fails?If they can DO this to THEIR leading candidate for president, what do you think they will do to a democrat?
WHAT does THAT say about the state of politics, particularly U.S politics?
You’d think that they would be eager to help Trump, if he really is so green.
The party hierarchy, donors, etc meet behind closed doors to hand-pick the people THEY want, the people THEY think will be pliable and biddable and beholden and then trot them out and fund them and groom them and FOIST them on an unsuspecting public.
When the party elites find themselves in a position where they CANNOT control the process, they are at a loss. And instead of supporting the candidate that their party voters seem to be embracing, they try to derail him or her.
I reckon ONE self-destruct button is NOT sufficient…republicans need TWO! An auto, just in case the manual fails!
Now I’m not saying that Trump is the ideal candidate or the best candidate or an acceptable candidate, whatever…I’m just saying, in the process of U.S. democracy and representative voting and electoral freedom, Trump is the leading candidate and INSTEAD of derailing HIM, (if the GOP does not want him – and who are they to speak for voters?)…
However, IF, in the interests of their party the GOP hierarchy (or the hierarchy of any other party) DOES NOT LIKE OR WANT the leading candidate, then please DON’T destroy or belittle him/her.
Simply PUMP UP the candidates you like and want: fund them, go campaign for them, groom them etc.
BUT DO NOT DESTROY OR DENIGRATE THE LEADING CANDIDATE THAT AMERICANS ARE VOTING FOR!
Or does the GOP think that it is DEMOCRATS who are voting for Trump?
While I enjoy the spectacle of the GOP self-destructing (and don’t for a moment believe that Democrats might not also walk that road – because we humans NEVER learn, we always think that WE will be the ones to get it right!) I find it SAD and PETTY and from the standpoint of democracy – an “Assault on Freedom.”
But then republicans are no strangers to assaults on voter suppression – they’ve simply turned the dagger on themselves this time. And good riddance. This is a monster you created – YOU and your pals on the Supreme Court.
You somehow thought that unlimited amounts of cash can buy an election; well apparently, it can’t always do that.
You somehow thought that when your pals on the Supreme Court handed the election to George Bush with a big red bow, that you were advancing your cause. Well, IT DID NOT. It created this entertaining cringe-inducing fiasco.
I maintain that if the Supreme Court had let Florida count its votes or let people vote again, Al Gore would have won that election – and that is what the republicans on the court were afraid of.
So they gave it to Bush. Bush took the U.S. into Iraq and paved the way for rock-star Obama.
Gore would NOT have bombed Iraq – and after Gore, who knows if there would have been an Obama – or another republican president?
It is NOT good to meddle in things based on impure motives – because it has a way of coming back VERY painfully.
By the way, even Martians will be watching that republican debate tonight!
And yes Mitt Romney – we’ll be sitting…we won’t be on our knees!!! Especially as we’re NOT looking for endorsements…
But there’s still time. I haven’t decided yet whether I will throw my hat into the ring – or should that be my heart?
