Thank God for that. A few years ago they were handed power on a platter and acted like losers, did little or nothing with it and broke some big promises.

Thank god for being even worse now? Ok, whatever floats your boat I guess.


The simple fact that you consider them worse gives me reason to be hopeful. I'd never expect a thumbs up, but if you gave one I'd really be worried. Crossing the aisle to help pass Democratic agenda items, caving in, and giving Democrats largely whatever they want might cause you to lighten your stance? No thanks.

Almost sounds like you think the R's have been working with the Ds too much...if so, you must be living in a parallel universe or something because that's certainly not what's been happening. In any case, I've voted for more people with R next to their name than D in the last few elections, so I guess you've got me figured out alright. lol

It is funny. Just like The Goober labeling me a liberal who "carries water" for HRC when in fact I've never voted for a Democratic presidential candidate in my life, and I've voted in every election since 1972.

They appear to put up a fight for a while, then cave. Too scared to "shut down" the government. Too
scared to be called racists. Too scared about what the media would say. They were given the power of the purse and the debt continued to skyrocket, but they put on a good show.

Obama had a supermajority [ 60 senate seats] for about 60 days, 2008-2010. republicans in congress did NOTHING to improve conditions for most americans, and filibustered Obama at every chance, at the cost to most americans to improve their lives after the bush/cheney recession. here is a rundown of the good things that were lost, thanks to republican obstruction. http://dailysignal.com/2015/11/11/12-bills-that-the-filibuster-stopped-from -becoming-law/

Lest you think Mike Pence is the sane and stable one on the GOP ticket...

Mike Pence Wrote An Article Urging Employers Not to Hire Gay People

Mike Pence, Donald Trump's running mate in this year's presidential election, published articles urging employers not to hire gay employees while he was head of the Indiana Policy Review in the 1990s.

One such article published during Pence's tenure reads: "Homosexuals are not as a group able-bodied. They are known to carry extremely high rates of disease brought on because of the nature of their sexual practices and the promiscuity which is a hallmark of their lifestyle."

Pence also argues in the piece that homosexuality is a "pathological condition." Read the full article here.

Pence has also fallen under scrutiny for publishing work in 1993 criticizing gay military members.

Last year as governor of Indiana, he signed the "Religious Freedom Restoration Act," which allows companies to discriminate against LGBT employees and customers based on firmly held religious beliefs. And he's proposed cutting funding for HIV treatment and using the money for "gay cure" therapy.

Trumpís history of corruption is mind-boggling. So why is Clinton supposedly the corrupt one?
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2016/09/05/trumps-history -of-corruption-is-mind-boggling-so-why-is-clinton-supposedly-the-corrupt-on e/

The Donald has court dates coming up on Oct 14th for a hearing about his alleged rape of a 13 yr old girl and another on Nov 28th for his fraud case about "TRUMP UNIVERSITY"....HRC is not the only "corrupt" politician running for president...

Hereís a partial list of Trump's corruption exploits:

- Trumpís casino bankruptcies, which left investors holding the bag while he skedaddled with their money
- Trumpís habit of refusing to pay contractors who had done work for him, many of whom are struggling small businesses
- Trump University, which includes not only the people who got scammed and the Florida investigation, but also a similar story from Texas where the investigation into Trump U was quashed.
- The Trump Institute, another get-rich-quick scheme in which Trump allowed a couple of grifters to use his name to bilk people out of their money
- The Trump Network, a multi-level marketing venture (a.k.a. pyramid scheme) that involved customers mailing in a urine sample which would be analyzed to produce for them a specially formulated package of multivitamins
- Trump Model Management, which reportedly had foreign models lie to customs officials and work in the U.S. illegally, and kept them in squalid conditions while they earned almost nothing for the work they did
- Trumpís employment of foreign guest workers at his resorts, which involves a claim that he canít find Americans to do the work
- Trumpís use of hundreds of undocumented workers from Poland in the 1980s, who were paid a pittance for their illegal work
- Trumpís history of being charged with housing discrimination
- Trumpís connections to mafia figures involved in New York construction
- The time Trump paid the Federal Trade Commission $750,000 over charges that he violated anti-trust laws when trying to take over a rival casino company
- The fact that Trump is now being advised by Roger Ailes, who was forced out as Fox News chief when dozens of women came forward to charge him with sexual harassment. According to the allegations, Ailesís behavior was positively monstrous; as just one indicator, his abusive and predatory actions toward women were so well-known and so loathsome that in 1968 the morally upstanding folks in the Nixon administration refused to allow him to work there despite his key role in getting Nixon elected.

And besides, he knows more about the military than all the generals combined. He is an expert in making money through bankruptcy court and a military genius. How could he possibly be more qualified? Believe me, there could never be anybody more qualified.

Hopefully we start losing the whole oppressive PC/Progressive path we're on. I'd look for a lot of deplorables to show up on Election Day, the one's that rarely or never vote because they're fed up with politics and normal politicians in general, folks that are not particularly active politically and are never polled. That's roughly half of the adult population. If enough deplorables show up it could be a long day for Ms. Clinton.

Unfortunately what the deplorables don't realize is that Trump is more of the same, only the packaging is different.

If he's more of the same, why all the hatred and anger toward him coming from Democrats? Obviously they don't view him as just "more of the same." Your theory doesn't hold up.

Evangelical pastors have loved to quote Philip Yancey as much as possible...we'll see if that continues...he makes great points here...

Famed Christian author: Trump 'stands against everything Christianity believes'

Christian author Philip Yancey recently issued a harsh rebuke of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying the businessman "stands against everything Christianity believes."

Yancey told Evangelical Focus, a Christian outlet, that he's dumbfounded by just how fervently evangelical Christians are supporting Trump.

"I am staggered that so many conservative or evangelical Christians would see a man who is a bully, who made his money by casinos, who has had several wives and several affairs ó that they would somehow paint him as a hero, as someone that we could stand behind," he said.

Yancey said he understands agreeing with certain policies, but he simply can't comprehend who so many Christians are aligning themselves with Trump in light of perceived negative attributes.

"I could understand that maybe you choose these policies that you support ... but to choose a person who stands against everything Christianity believes as the hero, the representative, the one who we get behind enthusiastically is not something that I understand at all," he added.

Watch Yancey's comments below:

https://youtu.be/trjK4t3M2E8

The author also warned of the intertwining of religion and politics, saying that, in Europe, there are examples of Christian denominations being set back decades by inappropriately intertwining themselves with government.

Then, when government acts ó or is suddenly seen as ó ineffective and corrupt, the churches, too, end up harmed in the public eye.

Yancey proposed that there could be fertile ground for Christians to help nonbelievers discover the gospel, even as America continues to secularize.

"As the United States grows more and more secular ... I tell my people we are becoming more like the fertile soil in which the early church did best," he said.

Yancey's comments come as evangelicals are rallying around Trump's candidacy ahead of the Tuesday, Nov. 8 election. While many evangelicals and Christians more broadly agree with his assessment, others have defended Trump.

Author Eric Metaxas is among the pool of prominent evangelicals who are supporting Trump, proclaiming in an interview with "The Chuch Boys" earlier this summer that it's essential that Christians choose the GOP nominee.

"Donald Trump, when people paint him as some immoral monster ó do you even know what an immoral monster is?" Metaxas said. "Do you know who Stalin was, who Hilter was, who Pol Pot was, who Idi Amin was?"

He continued, "You may not like him, but the idea that we kinda write him off as pure evil &#133; those folks are simply not thinking clearly."

Metaxas encouraged Christians to take an objective look at the political landscape, drawing a distinction between Trump and Clinton, while acknowledging the critique that Trump is simply unpredictable.

"Better to gamble with somebody who might pick the wrong person than to allow someone to get into the office who, without any doubt, will pick the wrong person,Ē he said of the president's ability to appoint Supreme Court justices.

Others, too, have said that Trump is a Christian who, at some point over the past decade, has rededicated himself to God. Listen to Metaxas' comments here.

As The Pew Research Center noted, the once-skeptical Christian cohort is now overwhelmingly willing to support Trump, with nearly 90 percent of regular GOP churchgoers saying in June that they'd opt for Trump over Clinton.

And evangelicals, more specifically, were among the wariest of Trump during the primaries; that same group, though, is now overwhelmingly on his side, with 94 percent of Republican evangelicals saying they'd choose Trump over Clinton.

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office on Monday ordered the Donald J. Trump Foundation to "immediately cease soliciting contributions" after a report that the charity lacked the proper authorization to seek public donations.

"The Attorney General's office is the sole regulator of charities in New York State, and when evidence of clear misconduct is brought to our attention, we take action," a spokesman for the attorney general's office said in a statement.

The "Notice of Violation" letter obtained by NBC News warned that the charity "shall be deemed a continuing fraud upon the people of New York" unless it provided required paperwork regarding its fundraising activities within the next 15 days.

The move comes after the Washington Post reported last week that the campaign lacked a required state certification that would allow it to request funding from the public. Trump organized a veterans event after cancelling a primary debate appearance in January and collected $1.67 million through a website directing donations to the Trump Foundation.

Oopsie, paperwork must have gone in the same pile as the ones Crooked H signed when starting at the State dept., which had to do with how to handle classified information. Could never find signed copies of those documents, must of been a simple mistake. Don't recall a front page story about it though.

The fact that he has two weeks to file means its just a simple paperwork oversight.

The foundation has been operating illegally for years. Now that they have been found out, they have 15 days to provide the paperwork or be shut down completely. It wasn't any kind of oversight.

Nice try, though. No wait, it wasn't. It was a Christie-Giuliani type of spin.

I don't condone tax evasion or welfare fraud, however I do find it comical that the same individuals who get so angry about people who are "gaming the system" to get as much welfare as possible, think it is perfectly fine and "smart" of Drumpf to game the system to pay as little taxes as possible.

The irony of Trump not paying taxes & claiming to be brilliant is that on multiple occasions he has criticized others for not paying their fair share. Can't have it both ways. I'm OK with not paying taxes if one plays according to the IRS regulations. The problem is Trump's hypocrisy on this issue.

I don't think Trump paid taxes because his vast income exists only in his mind.

The IRS will accept that excuse? Sounds pretty good..
