Trump has created one major conflict after another. Americans have criticized Government for creating pointless conflict and gridlock. At leaste the American voter knows The American Nazi Party, KKK and Holocaust Deniers are supporting Trump.

Republican donors, unhappy with Trump policies like his calls to deport 11 million illegal immigrants and temporarily bar all Muslims from entering the United States have poured millions of dollars into attack ads over the past week.

Cruz has self deported from the US Senate with his pointless antics and theologically bankrupt appeals.

Slater Bayliss, a Florida Republican who raised money for former Florida Governor Jeb Bush before he dropped out of the race, said: “From my perspective, Senator Cruz’s views are indicative of only a very small cohort in our party.”

The GOP/Tea Party has successfully alienated its most loyal voters and substituted racists, bigots, misogynists and religious nutballs. That resume hasn't been matched in American political history.

The GOP/Tea Party bigots and nuts, snack food for the mentally impaired.

GOOOO Trump!

I hope we shall crush in its birth the aristocracy of our monied corporations which dare already to challenge our government to a trial by strength, and bid defiance to the laws of our country.

Worst.

Trump has himself started administering loyalty oaths at his rallies.

Trump threatened his bigot tribe at Kentucky that "bad things happen to those who violate their oaths of allegiance".

One hopes Trump will ask his daughter what a Holocaust Denier is. Or David Duke, Grand Wizard, KKK, or The American Nazi Party.

Donald J. Trump is following the oaths of allegiance administered at George W. Bush rallies, and some can still remember how that worked out.

How one person can be so contemptuous of the history of these oaths, their real meanings and the wholly disgusting act of pledging allegiance to Trump himself, over home, nation and knowledge truly proves the racist and bigoted content of his appeal and followers. Disgusting.

Donald J. Trump ask your daughter what a Holocaust Denier is. Better yet, ask your biggest fan David Duke.

Cruz has run as an outsider bent on shaking up the Republican establishment in Washington. A favorite of evangelicals, he has called for the United States to “carpet bomb” the Islamic State militant group and has pledged to eliminate the tax-collecting Internal Revenue Service . . .

Cruz's faith hasn't informed him of the thousands of innocent men, women and CHILDREN his carpet bombing will slaughter.

Cruz's management skills haven't informed him of the inability of Government to function without means of Revenue.

Cruz, then, is simply demanding wholesale slaughter, just like Bush/Cheney, and dismantling the Federal Government, who he wants to slaughter the innocent men, women and CHILDREN of the Middle East.

Cruz should be deported or institutionalized.

Here's the catch, even if Trump reaches the 1237 delegate mark, the RNC can and likely will change the rules immediately prior to the convention just like they did in 2012 in order to prevent Ron Paul being on the ticket. It'll be the nuclear option, but they'll do it and assure a November loss to whoever becomes the Democrat candidate. What a mess.

Hey wait a minute!?

I was always told that the Republican party only represented big business and racist billionaires. And that the Democratic party represented the American Worker.

Now I'm told that the Republican base is the working class. So who is the Democratic base? Rhetoric can be so confusing sometimes.

One thing that is clear is that neither of the two major political parties are doing a very good job of representing the interests of the people of the US as a whole and, more and more, they are even failing to advance the agendas of their own party faithful. Governance in the US has reached the point of impotence and a truly legitimate representative government has become a casualty of party politics and ideological zealotry.

We were warned about the dangers of an entrenched two party system, by the likes of George Washington and John Adams, but we ended up with one anyways. American voters now have the choice of one, or the other, side of the same coin but it's still the same coin and really isn't much of a choice.

There's always some people that will cast a protest ballot for guys like Nader or Perot, but that was always just throwing away the vote. But now, strangely enough, there are candidates rising up from within the parties who challenge the mainstream hierarchy and give voters at least an alternative.

Trump is a third party candidate running as a Republican and Sanders is the same thing on the Democratic side. Now those voters who are inclined to vote contrary to party dictates can cast a protest vote that has a little more bite.

As far as the Republicans are concerned they should spend less time on thinking of ways to derail Trump and more time thinking about why they have to.

One thing that is clear is that neither of the two major political parties are doing a very good job of representing the interests of the people of the US as a whole - comments

This statement is incomplete. The GOP/Tea Party has vigorously damned the welfare, health and wealth of ordinary American Citizens. Their insistent attacks on education, medicine, liberty, truth and human values has resulted in the destruction of the Middle East, World Economy and the Military readiness of America.

Handed a five trillion dollar surplus from the Clinton Administration, the forged documents of Bush/Cheney led the country into a privatized war of mercenary and black ops, torture and war profiteering.

Before anyone make claim that the GOP/Tea Party is somehow interested in the ordinary Citizen of the States let them mark the corruption of Bush/Cheney and their destruction promoted and demanded on forged documents and a false religion of George W, Bush that proclaimed the world was either for or against America and that he, AWOL Bush, would rid the world of evil.

Faced now with another turning point, the election of November 6, 2016, look on the charade of false patriotism and deception the GOP/Tea has mounted in their absurd campaign of measuring each other's phallus as the running joke of their campaign, the intellectual pinnacle of their capacity.

It is impossible to answer for these criminals, as they have denied all knowledge of the wars they waged on loans from China and paid to Blackwater operatives who quickly fled the country at the conclusion of the Bush disaster, (see:Erik Dean Prince) to sell their secrets to the Chinese in the military occupations of Africa and elsewhere.

So, while it is easy to parrot the same mouthings of FOXNews, Trump's sponsor, or the racism of David Duke, the GOP/Tea Party has acted to destroy the lives of millions of Americans selling their sons, daughters, fathers and mothers into the deceptive and maiming wars created for profit.

As the election approaches, the claims of innocence from America's traitors will become more strident, convoluted and xenophobic because lies and profit have been the trade and tactic of the GOP/Tea Party.

Expect nothing more from these who still demand war for profit as they have already positioned their corporate masters for shielded wealth in their gated communities built by Donald J. Trump and protected by the paid gunmen he boasts of at his loyalty encampments where Lord Trump demands his followers repeat upon penalty allegiance to Trump above all others and above country.

And here, one poses both parties have led American's astray?

Look to history, recent history, and the obvious will astound in it's depravity and deceit. Ladies and Gentlemen, this is the GOP/Tea come to destroy in the name of private wealth the future of millions of Americans and as much of the world as they may make profit from.

The foolishness of Ted Cruz is exceeded by his ignorance.

From August of 2015, the bacon gun demo plays to the prejudice of Ted Cruz's religious convictions.

But, sadly again, this is Cruz's religion, destruction and fear over reason and compassion. Very GOP/Tea.

Hmm. Word has it that Rubio may drop out if he does poorly tomorrow rather than pin his hopes on Florida, the reason being that being crushed in his home state would finish his political career permanently. Again, it's not for the nation nor for the party - it is for him. So much for Romney's call to divide the GOP vote so as to deny Trump a majority - Rubio dropping out would likely assure that.

I think Cruz would likely be a worse overall president, but Trump would be more of a disaster in certain areas. Cruz is a better Republican choice for the Democrats however, as either Democratic nominee would have a better chance at beating Cruz.

In either case, the U.S. in the eyes of the rest of the world would be doomed. Cruz is too conservative and Trump has already burned too many bridges with Latin, Asian, and Muslim nations with his racist rants and promises of death and destruction to all who oppose him. Even the leaders of European nations are turned off by him. That leaves only a handful of countries who would possibly engage him in any form of diplomacy, if elected as President.

Cruz is too conservative

What's the difference between Obama being too liberal and acceptable and Cruz being too conservative and that being unacceptable?

and Trump has already burned too many bridges with Latin, Asian, and Muslim nations with his racist rants

But Obama, Holder and Sharpton making racist rants towards Whites is acceptable? True, Trump may have alienated the minority vote, but he sure did wake up the White vote and more are flocking to him.

and promises of death and destruction to all who oppose him.

To our enemies if they scream death to America and threaten to destroy us, he should light their *sses up.

Even the leaders of European nations are turned off by him.

I think it's safe to say, I would rather have a president that people feared, especially our enemies over a president that cares too much about being popular.

That leaves only a handful of countries who would possibly engage him in any form of diplomacy, if elected as President.

In the end, they will bend and work with him, they always have and always will.

The Florida Sun Sentinel, which had previously endorsed Jeb!, had this to say about the remaining slate:

We cannot endorse businessman Donald Trump, hometown Sen. Marco Rubio or Texas Sen. Ted Cruz because they are unqualified to be president. ... Ohio Gov. John Kasich is the best of the bunch, but if you measure a candidate by the caliber of his campaign, Kasich's lack of traction and organization make a vote for him count for little.

Way to build up the enthusiasm, Sun! Still, all was not lost for lil' Rube as he won this endorsement from Romney, who called for:

a candidate who can defeat Hillary Clinton and who can make us proud... If we Republicans were to choose Donald Trump as our nominee, I believe that the prospects for a safe and prosperous future would be greatly diminished — and I’m convinced Donald Trump would lose to Hillary Clinton.

Okay, he still didn't call out Marco by name, but he did allude to him - and frankly, given Romney's reputation and the way things are going down, Marco needs his support like a hole in the head. (Jeb!'s would have been nice but does not seem forthcoming for some reason.)

No one fears America; they've never feared America. They've always despised America for its gangsterism, which you've just stated is a good thing rather than being popular, meaning a man of the world. If Americans ever really want to be safe, they need to ask themselves hard questions such as why does the rest of the world hate them? Why are the "terrorist" attacking us? It sure isn't that they're envious of America's so-called democracy and freedom. No, it's because America is the world's biggest terrorist and always has been. How many countries has America invaded? What's the longest stretch America has gone without any military conflict? And it's all because of these gangsters screaming about America is number one and let's make America great again and let's have a president with a a pair the size of an elephant's, blah blah blah. Trump is bad and Cruz is bad and Hillary is bad. America doesn't need a president that is "feared". It needs a president that is respected for his or her ambition to work with people and make allies. Not some head honcho that's gonna piss everybody off and make more enemies. If only America had enough jobs for its people as it has enemies and bullets and weaponry and arrogant people talking about god bless America.

This poster may well be trying his hand at deception, not unlike the GOP/Tea Party, Trump, and Cruz, but on closer examination a question is prompted.

How low will the GOP/Tea Party go to recruit the bigot? More importantly, if this is actually an American poster, he might ask if his comrades would offer a comment on his insights published in regard to the slaughter of children.

The conclusion, based on thin proof, except by the poster's own claims, pairs military service with a revolting insensitivity to the suffering of innocent children based on religious identity. That's well over the top even for the GOP/Tea but, still, unsurprising and likely has no place here or in the military service code of any nation.

Irrelevant. My point is that you support the Republican led war on drugs and 1) substances such as alcohol, ritalin, and opiate pain killers are legally accessible and just as harmful as what the Mexicans are bringing here and 2) Perhaps more to the point, American demand (drug users) are the reason for drug violence in Mexico. The demand side (American users) has largely been ignored, all the while demonizing Mexicans. Bottom line, we cannot criticize Mexico without criticizing US drug policy.

Yeah, he did. Imo, Obama said something a little worse, in reference to Sara Palin, said, "You can put lipstick on a pig, but its still a pig." Why did those remarks fly? But when Trump say something -he's a racist. He's a sexist. Its not fair.

Both parties used the same quote. Hell, its not even unique to the US, it has been used for generations, varients as far back as the bible. Even if it Obama did say such a thing, do you really want to compare yourself to Obama? Do you really want to compare yourself to him? And just assuming you are correct (I do not think so), saying sexist things about one person, that in no way compares to suggesting Muslims wear special ids. You are aware of the connotations, aren't you?

I wil not vote for him, Cruz, or Clinton, but mark my words: if the Republicans put up Cruz or Trump, game over. Might as well wrap it up and give it to the Dems.
