I watched the RNC Convention everyday and I was not Impressed.  I think that Hillary will get more done than Trump.

Yea?  Like what?  Democrats have been in power for 8 years straight.

    And has been blocked by the republicans for 8 years.  When Obama took office, the republicans were the first to say that they were not going to work with Obama.

      Democrats held majorities in both Houses the first four years of obama's term.  Don't blame that on Republicans.  You want to know the truth about Democrats?.....They like to divide people for votes even when there is no division.  Believe what you want, I'm tired of arguing with a rock.

          I hear what you are saying, BUT trump IS NOT THE GUY TO MAKE CHANGES!  trump is about trump and that is it.  I was a Bernie person, so I pick Hillary over trump.

          Trump should release his TAXES.  Is trump going to get his clothes made in the USA?  Everything that trump states, someone else has to explain what he meant to say.

          The only reason that it requires further explanation is because of the relentless attack and manipulation by the media. If you can't watch yesterday's press conference and then recognize how his answers were totally distorted by the compliant press on instructions from the Hillary campaign (let the spin begin), you are not trying hard enough or you have biases going in that preclude you from open and honest discernment.

          The honesty of your comment that Trump is about Trump is totally contradicted by your next sentence where you pick Hillary; if you think Trump is all about Trump more than Hillary is all about Hillary, you are not paying attention.

            Now I wonder what would happen if they indict Hillary Clinton on the email scandals like they should have in the first place, which then will disqualify her of holding on higher office in the US, including presidency. She is legally NOT eligible to become president. Yet the government (United States Attorney General, Lynch) doesn't care about the law when it comes to her.

              If only the Republicans actually were an opposition party over the last eight years, Trump would never have had a chance in this election cycle. Of course they should have said they would not work with Obama- his stated desire was to "fundamentally transform America". If you believe in America's constitution and the bill of rights, you could not possibly support fundamental transformation. Only thing is the Republicans rolled over for fear of being called racist for opposing the half white guy, telling their supporters to always wait for the next election cycle when they could really impact Washington (can you say we only control 1/2 of 1/3 of the government when they took control of the house? Can you say we don't want to do anything in opposition to Obama for fear of hurting our chances in the presidential election?). Our leaders- Obama, Biden, Boehner, McConnell, Pelosi, Reid, Ryan- all fail to represent the American people.

                  IRS stated that trump can release his taxes before the IRS is done.  That was from the IRS.

                  You are the exact scary voter that is ruining America. You perceive yourself to be fully informed yet you have not a clue. Is this the same IRS under Obama that went after the Tea Party groups not-for-profit status prohibiting them from fully participating in the 2012 election? Of course, you probably think Lois Lerner did nothing wrong because she also walked away a free woman, as did Hillary. So the IRS says there is nothing that precludes Trump from releasing his tax returns while under audit and you mindlessly agree. There is not one tax attorney that would recommend a client release any information until an audit is complete. So, of course he could release his returns because there is nothing that legally precludes it, but that would be unwise. On a larger point, what the hell do you want to learn from Trump's tax returns? It is inconsequential except to those that would seek to use the information in an additional attempt to destroy Hillary's opponent. There is a truth that everyone should strive for- not my truth, not your truth, not Democrats truth, not Republicans truth- the truth.

                    She got over 500,000 votes in 2012, The Green Party is growing as more and more people are realizing there needs to be an alternative to the two right wing parties.

                    Well, I hope you and TrigglyPuff can save the world.

                    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                    For a lead role in a cage?

                      There will be a whole lot of angry people if they tell the citizens that Clinton is above the law.

                       

                      It's a federal crime to send classified and top secret information to somebody who does not have the proper clearance. It's even worse when it was sent on an unsecure server in her basement (which is against policy too)

                       

                      It's also a federal crime to lie under oath in the Supreme Court.

                       

                      She should go to prison for 20 years with no chance of parole.

                        Went to my class reunion a couple weeks ago, many of the people there I have not seen since the 70's.

                        The hot topic was not politics, but how the world has changed , and how our kids are growing up .

                        My son was 2 when Islamic Terrorists flew planes into the world trade center, this is his world to adapt to .

                        He will never know what was like going to an airport, concert or Hockey game without being searched and scrutinized.

                        He is living with technology we never dreamed was possible.

                        Back in our day, the big argument was who's cuter, David Gilmour or Roger Taylor, now everything is an argument.

                        This Country has gone insane with political correctness, if you disagree, you get a label and depending on the topic, you could be Racist, bigot, hater, homophobe etc.

                        In our day we watched Little house on the Prairie, the Waltons or a family themed comedy/music show.

                        Now the TV is filled with reality shows, people in constant conflict, or people living lives that are not even close to real.

                        Survival shows top the lists.

                        I guess it doesn't matter who is elected, I was taught to survive long before these shows popped up.

                        I not only know how to grow food, I hunt, fish and can find food in the forest.

                        For my son's sake, for the world he has to grow up in, I want a leader who is willing to say and do the things we need, to keep us just a little safer.

                        Some things you can't control, but we need a leader who can make it harder for those who mean to harm us.

                        I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but read this excerpt regarding Operation Northwoods from Wiki and judge for yourself.

                        Or u can google it. It sounds very much like the scenario from 9/11.

                        Operation Northwoods

                        From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
                        Operation Northwoods memorandum (13 March 1962)[1]
                        Lyman L. Lemnitzer, who was in charge as the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

                        Operation Northwoods was a proposed false flag operation against the Cuban government, that originated within the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) of the United States government in 1962. The proposals called for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) or other U.S. government operatives to commit acts of terrorism against American civilians and military targets, blaming it on the Cuban government, and using it to justify a war against Cuba. The proposals were rejected by the Kennedy administration.[2]

                        At the time of the proposal, communists led by Fidel Castro had recently taken power in Cuba. The operation proposed creating public support for a war against Cuba by blaming it for terrorist acts that would actually be perpetrated by the US Government.[3] To this end, Operation Northwoods proposals recommended hijackings and bombings followed by the introduction of phony evidence that would implicate the Cuban government. It stated:

                        The desired resultant from the execution of this plan would be to place the United States in the apparent position of suffering defensible grievances from a rash and irresponsible government of Cuba and to develop an international image of a Cuban threat to peace in the Western Hemisphere.

                        Several other proposals were included within Operation Northwoods, including real or simulated actions against various US military and civilian targets. The operation recommended developing a "Communist Cuban terror campaign in the Miami area, in other Florida cities and even in Washington".

                        The plan was drafted by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, signed by Chairman Lyman Lemnitzer and sent to the Secretary of Defense. Although part of the US government's anti-communist Cuban Project, Operation Northwoods was never officially accepted; it was authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff, but then rejected by President John F. Kennedy. According to currently released documentation, none of the operations became active under the auspices of the Operation Northwoods proposals.

                        All things which are similar and therefore connected, are drawn to each other's power.
