    .......he'll bankroll Bernie Sanders in a 3rd party run for the Whitehouse.

    Perot split the Rep vote, and single handedly elected Bill Clinton, TWICE. Wouldn't it be sweeeeeet if the same situation defeated Hillary Clinton.

    Went to my gun toting dermatologist this morning, all his nurses and receptionist are toting too by the way, I asked him what he thought about the election, he said it was a hell of a thing to choose between a common criminal and a complete idiot. But, he said anyone but Hillary.

    I just don't see Cruz happening but maybe. He dropped awful quick yesterday after some of the steps he's been taking lately. So who knows. Maybe Trump will blow us away with his VP choice. It's the only way he's going to bring the party together at this point.

    I think Cruz would be a excellent choice since he has the other half of the people behind him . It could be possible to sew up the republican votes and not loose any.

    That is a point (it might bring back many evangelicals that may sit it out without Cruz, Christian talk radio was pushing hard for Cruz as was a lot of conservative talk radio). The other thing I've been wondering is what Texas will do without Cruz on the ticket. Most probably vote R, but then again, who knows. I keep hearing the Dems have been trying hard to change it to a blue state (and if it does, that's pretty much all she wrote for ever again winning via the electoral college). I know there's swing state VP choice talk of Kasich bringing Ohio or Rubio bringing Florida, but I don't see either of those as a guarantee. No one ever considers that Texas could become a swing state under the wrong circumstances.

    Carly really sullied the diaper with her timing. :lol3: I bet she is one torked off establishment elite wannabe right now. If Cruz wanted to take her out of consideration as a VP candidate for Trump, his timing couldn't have been better (and she isn't going to swing California to Trump or any other R candidate in this Universe).

    Cruz might do it. Rubio could get the establishment vote as well. A wild card would be the best bet though, since most of us are sick of the circus that's been in the running. Someone to balance out his bat$#!+ craziness. If he doesn't just blow me away with the VP choice then I stand by what I've said before about not voting for him. I just can't do it.
     
  11. For everyone that refuses to vote for Trump, this is what's coming. (I'm copying directly from the HC website. They monitor 'link froms' and I don't want any of those folks coming here to see what's up.

    COPY FROM HC for Pez site. Pay special attention to the wording, especially the last one.
    Hillary has a record of advocating for commonsense approaches to reduce gun violence:

    • As first lady, she co-convened a White House Summit on School Violence after the Columbine tragedy. She also strongly defended the Brady Bill, which instituted federal background checks on some gun sales.

    • As senator, she co-sponsored and voted for legislation to close the gun show loophole by requiring criminal background checks on all transactions taking place at events that sell firearms.

    • She voted against the dangerous immunity protections Congress provided gun dealers and manufacturers that prevent victims of gun violence from holding negligent manufacturers and dealers accountable.

    • She also co-sponsored and voted for legislation to extend and reinstate the assault weapons ban.
    As president, Hillary will increase the number of gun sales subject to background checks:

    • Comprehensive federal background check legislation. Background checks reduce gun trafficking, reduce the lethality of domestic violence, and reduce unlawful gun transfers to dangerous individuals. It is reprehensible that bipartisan legislation supporting background checks failed in Congress after the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. But Hillary is not giving up—she will continue to fight for legislation to build on the Brady Bill’s success.

    • Closing the “Charleston Loophole.” Hillary will push Congress to close the loophole that allows a gun sale to proceed without a completed background check if that check has not been completed within three days. This loophole allowed the alleged Charleston shooter to purchase a gun even though he had a criminal record.

    • Tightening the gun show and Internet sales loophole if Congress won’t. If Congress refuses to act, Hillary will take administrative action to require that any person attempting to sell a significant number of guns abide by the same commonsense rules that apply to gun stores—including requiring background checks on gun sales.
    To ensure that the safety of our communities is prioritized over the profits of the gun lobby, Hillary will also:

    • Repeal the gun industry’s unique immunity protection. Hillary believes the gun industry must be held accountable for violence perpetrated with their guns. Hillary will lead the charge to repeal the so-called “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act,” a dangerous law that prevents victims of gun violence from holding negligent manufacturers and dealers accountable for violence perpetrated with their guns.

    • Revoke the licenses of bad-actor dealers. Hillary believes we must do more to crack down on gun stores that flood our communities with illegal guns. As president, she will provide funding to increase inspections and aggressively enforce current law by revoking the licenses of dealers that knowingly supply straw purchasers and traffickers.
    Hillary will fight to keep guns out of the hands of domestic abusers, other violent criminals, and the severely mentally ill:

    • Support legislation to stop domestic abusers from buying and possessing guns.Although federal law generally prohibits domestic abusers from purchasing or possessing guns, this protection does not apply to people in dating relationships or convicted stalkers. Hillary will fight for legislation to prohibit all of these domestic abusers and stalkers from buying guns.

    • Make straw purchasing a federal crime. When an individual with a clean record buys a gun with the intention of giving it to a violent felon—only so that felon can avoid a background check—it should be a crime. Hillary will fight to make so-called “straw purchasing” a federal crime.

    • Close loopholes that let persons suffering from severe mental illness purchase and possess guns. Hillary will fight to improve existing law prohibiting persons suffering from severe mental illness from purchasing or possessing a gun. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives should finalize its rulemaking to close loopholes in our laws and clarify that people involuntarily committed to outpatient treatment, such as the Virginia Tech shooter, are prohibited from buying guns.

    • Keep military-style weapons off our streets. Military-style assault weapons do not belong on our streets. They are a danger to law enforcement and to our communities. Hillary will work to keep assault weapons off our streets and supports reinstating the assault weapons ban.

    I can not vote for hildabeast or bernie and not voting for Trump is a vote for those to.

    Don't get me wrong I don't put much hope in him but more than Bernie or Hildabeast.

    Yeah, voting for Bernie or Hidebeast is voting to flush yourself/the country down the toilet (especially for a gun owner). Voting for Trump is a roll of the dice, but at least there's some chance he could work out or at least be a space filler for four years.

    Evangelicals not showing up to vote for Romney because he was a Marmot or Mormon or whatever is arguably part of what sunk him. Like it not, they are needed to win and listening to Christian-oriented talk radio shows, like Tony Perkins and Glenn Beck (a Moron :D) a whole lot (virtually all) of the callers I heard perceive that Cruz is the only sufficiently Christian candidate. They might be hoodwinked, but that's the way they were seeing it. Virtually all of talk radio ended up backing Cruz (except for Limbaugh who was in the middle). If all sides ain't happy about it, then maybe it's a good compromise.
    :lol6:

    Get out the grinder, 'cause it's sausage makin' time...or you can hand the country over to the pantsuited she demon (or the Bern out) for 4-8 or infinite more years of progressive social engineering and socialist/communist indoctrination/transformation. Surely that'll work out better than what some consider a creepy Veep choice...

    I was a Crudz Supporter to start with but seen to much to continue and as I said my bet is on Trump as he wants to stay rich and powerful and he knows in order to do that he has to return this country to working capitolizm so I have to believe in him until he proves otherwise.

    Wait until Hillary unloads all the material they have been gathering on Trump, it ain't going to be pretty. The republicans couldn't even rise to answer a bad commercial showing Paul Ryan pushing an old lady off a cliff. They are not prepared for what's in store for Trump. I bet they have spent millions digging up bones on Trump and I'd bet some are going to leave a mark. Trump will need big bucks to fight her, wonder where it will come from. We will never know. (there is a huge bronze bull near there I bet)
