I cannot dismiss the niggling thought that the RNC will change their convention rules so they can

dismiss Trump and put in Jeb or Romney, or another establishment candidate. They have ample ammunition to boot Trump, with his fraud conviction alone.

If that happens, the tables will be turned on Democrats and we will need every vote.

Seems to me Trump is afraid and wants out. His empire is suffering greatly with his nomination and bluster and he has a history of throwing in the towel.

I wish to discuss the closing of bases around the world

there are a few vital bases we need, but our military spending is more than half our budget and I am in touch with soldiers all over the world and they say they do nothing and are disliked.What do we get from these bases, are they worth the cost and bad will?

What do you think.

just fyi, I was national guard and raised an army brat, lived on a few of those bases myself as a child

In the GE, do our votes get counted?

Today I was hiking with friends, dems, repub and non party folk, and this discussion came up.

Is voting just an exercise, ending up in a furnace with big cats laughing in a board room? With voting machines, computers, glitches, flipping, how can we be certain it is we the people who is choosing our leaders, or is a board game going on.

Is there a shadow government like Cheney said? I dont like conspiracy theories, but something is not right with our current system.

Secondly, why is there not a national voting process instead of state to state variences?

Thirdly, why is there not a voting bank everyone can log into like a bank site is for all of us, non internet voters having mail-in votes.

It is alot of questions, but I want to get them down before I forget our discussion high points

This is a GE inquiry, so I put it to this forum

Voting the lesser of two evils is blackmail

To compromise my own standards is "settling", especially when you know the tendencies of that candidate is dark and troubling.

Settling is to invite more of the same in the future.

I believe the only way to kick a bad habit is to go cold turkey toward what you know is acceptable, swallow your fear and stand up with your own voice

I've been told Trump has clips from Hillarys speeches to wall st

that he intends to use in ads. His ad against Bill was just creepy, but clips are as dangerous as Romney's foo-paa tape.

I hope this isnt true, but I can see his contacts on wall street could obtain that .

Free Trade- just what can we live without?

I can not think of one thing I need from China, Europe? Japan? Africa? South America? Why do we let other countries sell us inferior crap tariff free?

It has come to light that these mass killers

are not the criminals NRA uses to poo-poo gun danger, but rather, always lost souls who listen to Rush, Hannity, Beck and other hate speakers or religious radicals. Corporate media promotes hate speech, as do the majority of the Repug candidates. They are to blame for the downward spiral of our social DNA

Where can I find that MSNBC video of R morphing into Joe Isuzu ?

I am convinced, Romney is an APP

Stay at home moms Do work harder than most, but Ann Romney did not

raise her 5 boys. The AuPair's did, so the question is, were these nannies legal? Did they have work visas? I am certain they were not of latin ancestry or African American, but Swedish or German? The rest of the family was hiding out in Mexico, tax evading, so who did Ann have raising her kids?
