So called "Conservatives" say that Donald Trump is not a conservative. Can anyone please explain to me why continuing to put the country in more and more debt, currently over 19 trillion dollars, is "Conservative"?
We are all taught by the politicians/Republicans mostly, as to their being 'conservative' and we are all supposed to take their word( instead of their record) as the gospel. But, when asked what 'conservative' is in any other reach, we all believe it means frugal, careful with resources, saving our wealth in whatever form it takes. R Rak is correct. My father used to say, if God intended only politicians to have brains, he wouldn't have created all of us with one of our own. Let's use those brains to see truth. Conservation and 19 trillion in spending is at opposite ends of the spectrum. No wonder politicians want us to let them guide our understanding of words.
A true Conservative would not spend millions on attack adds for one.How about if we defund Congress that would help our Country and bring them to what Conservative is.
I have a question about the delegate requirements.The "magic number" 1237 is obviously based upon a two person race. That is, divide the total delegates by TWO and then add one for a simple majority. For example: (2472/2)+1=1237My point is that since this formula so clearly represents a two person contest for a simple majority, it stands to reason that the formula does not work for three or more contestants.In other words, since the obvious intent is that the victor secure a simple majority, the number 1237 loses its magic in a delegate vote for more than two people.The 1237 threshold is a false, anti-Trump metric.Whoever has the most votes on the fist ballot should be declared the winner.Better still would be for Trump to exceed the "magic" 1237 and shut the whiners up!
Megyn Kelly would love to have Donald Trump on her show, but he will never give her an interview and we can't blame him. Too bad for Megyn Kelly!
The following excerpt is from The Rules of the Republican Party. It requires a majority for the nomination. Nowhere can I find a 50% + 1 (1237) requirement. That is, if Trump gets 1236, Cruz 1000 and Kasich 236, ask yourself, "Who has the majority?" The rules:"(d) When at the close of a roll call any candidate for nomination for President of the United States or Vice President of the United States has received a majority of the votes entitled to be cast in the convention, the chairman of the convention shall announce the votes for each candidate whose name was presented in accordance with the provisions of paragraph (b) [*see below, separated for argument] of this rule. Before the convention adjourns sine die, the chairman of the convention shall declare the candidate nominated by the Republican Party for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States.(e) If no candidate shall have received such majority, the chairman of the convention shall direct the roll of the states be called again and shall repeat the calling of the roll until a candidate shall have received a majority of the votes entitled to be cast in the convention."HERE IS THE AFOREMENTIONED PART (b), which has an eight State or more majority requirement to secure a nomination. This anticipates a close contest yet easily weeds out someone like Kasich, HOWEVER, votes will be cast for him and those who dropped out. This means a ticket-bleed effect which is a normal part of the process and for which concerns and complaints about it should have been voiced when the party had so many contestants initially and too many clingers for too long. It is too late now to claim a Mulligan, wishing it was less complicated. If Trump has a MAJORITY of the ballots, he wins and fairly so! Here is Part (b) without further delay:"(b) Each candidate for nomination for President of the United States and Vice President of the United States shall demonstrate the support of a majority of the delegates from each of eight (8) or more states, severally, prior to the presentation of the name of that candidate for nomination. Notwithstanding any other provisions of these rules or any rule of the House of Representatives, to demonstrate the support required of this paragraph a certificate evidencing the affirmative written support of the required number of permanently seated delegates from each of the eight (8) or more states shall have been submitted to the secretary of the convention not later than one (1) hour prior to the placing of the names of candidates for nomination pursuant to this rule and the established order of business."CONCLUSION:TRUMP WILL DRINK YOUR TEARS, YOU WHO CRY ABOUT THE GUY YOU ASKED TO SIGN A PLEDGE TO COMMIT TO YOU. YOU ASKED FOR AND GOT YOUR COMMITMENT, AND NOW YOU THROW A TANTRUM.HAH!
I am for Donald Trump and so are all my friends and relative. By the way most of us are college educated although people with no education have loads of common sense and intellect. Go Trump!If the so-called establishment ruins this for us, we will not vote at all or will bail and vote for Hillary. I know, that sounds bad, but she does have one saving grace, her husband.
