    I have to admit I am truly enjoying this election. It was quite boring in the beginning with all 17 conservative candidates but then when the Republican Party and Faux News realized that the voters were not happily marching along, The horror! Voters are actually refusing to be spoon fed candidates? Voters seem to refuse the polished up puppet that the party and media keep trying to convince the voters, “you want this one”. As ugly as it is going to get, it really as giving me a sick sense of small revenge to watch the party officials scramble. The elections of 2008 & 2012 plus the mid-terms left the voters simmering. We got lame horse candidates and after handing the Republican Party both Senate and House, still nothing. The voters have finally said enough. I think the one thing that the election of 2016 will guarantee, is the death of the Republican part.

    So when I see headlines like this: We choose the nominee, not the voters: Senior GOP official with a story to follow explaining it is just the rules…. .

    Voters don't pick nominee, we do: GOP official

    See it is just the rules, all these politicians have just been following the rules. From the comments that are following that article, I do not think people care about the rules anymore. Yes, I will continue to watch with disgust and evil pleasure. I do not like people hurting each other but I really love the mental anguish that you see and hear happening to people like Beck, O’Reilly and Hewitt.

    If I lived in Cleveland, I would be taking my family on vacation July 18 to 21. I do not think the Trump train can be stopped so expect some to try and stop the train in Cleveland.

    I weep for our nation. Obama's nominee is on record opposing the second amendment. Bye bye bill of rights.

    Will you taking YOUR musket to the new Lexington Green, instead of just kibitzing from the sidelines??? Talk is cheap from the other side of a keyboard....or will you be regurgitating other people's YouTube clips of the action, as seems to have been the case with the Malheur malcontents???

    I somehow feel that that "igniter" is not to be found in your hand...even if posts coming from your direction tend to be on the incendiary side of vitriol. ;)

    I fear the RNC will nominate some centrist RINO and thus hand the election and 5 Supreme Court Nominations to the Democrats. If the RNC wants to implode, that is what they should do. If they want to remain a viable Political voice in this country they had better be listening to their base and not doing the bidding of a bunch of left leaning compromising fat cats in the RNC. The times, they are a changin'! And I can't stand BOB Dylan...... [2c]

    Nationally, there are millions with "igniters".....

    We as a people just need the resolve....for we are not one man...but a nation full of independent men and women that will not live forever under the thumb of tyranny.... Ask your queen about the last time we hit that breaking point Chello. ;)

    We choose the nominees, not the voters,... perhaps the voters should change that?

    Very few want to be on either end of the two way range.

    When someone is on one's ignore list; either ignore them or un-ignore (not a word, who cares) and join the fray.

    There is nothing quite a waste of time as a key fight. :rolleyes:

    She wasn't there when that happened, YD....and, I think that Brittania has it's own political dufusses to contend with...indeed (Scottish) Devolution, and membership of the EU seems to be more on Her Maj's mind at the moment, than any hair-piece shenanigans in some distant former colonies in the Americas. :p

    Maybe we will send our undesirables to a prison colony....also known as Australia.

    Let's throw some more fuel on a simmering nation. We are a divided nation. It has become that I am no longer first acknowledged as a person. I am a White (gasp) Republican (though I always clarify that I am a conservative). I am a double evil. I am labels and I am the enemy. People hear my labels and treat me as evil without knowing me.

    So here comes the fuel, Operation Democracy Spring:
    Anti-Trump Groups Threaten 'Largest Civil Disobedience Action of the Century' - Breitbart

    These people will be showing up more and more. They shut down Trump's rally last week and guaranteed they will continue. How long are the Trump supporters going to tolerate that behavior? I see people saying they are going to pull the lever for Trump as a big FU to the whole political system. Temperaments are breaking. We the people sat by and watched a few cities burn last summer. We have sat by and watched Black Lives Matter, who seem to be very racist IMO. People seem to be fighting their parties, fighting their politicians plus fighting each other.

    So what are you going to do when Democracy Spring starts harassing you?

    If by undesirables you mean the Clintons or the Bushes....yes...we have a place for them....It's called Port Arthur, but it is a little run down, and not a little ghost ridden, thanks to Martin Bryant et al.
    Port Arthur, Tasmania - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    It is worth noting that many of the British undesirables sent to the American colonies as transported convicts were political prisoners (mostly Irish and Scottish), and that surely backfired on the British big time. ;)

    Some Americans are seeing Australia as a very viable place to live, as an alternative to living in the USA.

    Why Australia is now home to the sixth largest American population in the world

    The reason I live where I do is so I don't have to deal with vermin like that. And if they do make it out this way they probably wouldn't be happy with the hospitality.

    The labels have already been applied to those who would resist. Domestic "T" for one. This is exactly what was done by the British occupiers prior to the fight for independence.
