      “As usual he talks in circles but doesn’t answer questions.”
      not like the other candidates who always answer questions directly with yes or no answers, right? lol.

      Sheryl, at least when Donald Trump talks the will of the American people is reflected in what he says. You won’t get that from any other candidate. It may not be politically correct, it may not be what big business or other countries want to hear, but it is the will of a majority of the American people. That is what a representative is supposed to sound like. It has been so long since we have heard that kind of talk that it is disorienting and off-putting to people who aren’t actively looking for it, and yes, maybe he is just as much a liar as any other politician but at least he is actually giving a voice to the people, and not to foreign or corporate interests.

    He is right.
    Funny that one thing each and every one of the candidates agree on with no qualification is that Governor Snyder should resign.

  • Yep

    I wish him and Cruze would/could come together somehow and run as P and VP, I like them both , also a few dislikes for both but together surely unstoppable

    “We don’t want a commander-in-chief in the office who is making a mockery of the system,” said Justin Amash today. He meant to be speaking in support of Cruz, but this statement is precisely why so many people are voting for Trump…because the establishment political parties themselves are what has made a mockery of this system. Democrats and Republicans can’t pass even the simplest budget if you cover it with prunes, let alone begin to address the important issues we face as a country. And they hold up the actions of any president who is from “the other side” of the aisle. To break this “us and them” mentality, the American people are pushing for someone who is not established as either Dem or GOP. And it looks like they are getting their wish for a change!
