“The perception, revealed in polling, that the GOP does not care about people is doing great harm to the party … Asked to describe Republicans, they said that the party is ‘scary,’ ‘narrow minded,’ and ‘out of touch.’ ”

Now if we can only get those people to act and remove the monsters from office - get people to vote in their own best interest instead of against it.

Like Bernie says (and like the idea Oh-bummer toyed with but never committed to) - the public needs to get involved in the political process and elect their representatives to LOCAL STATE & FEDERAL OFFICES.

This race is not about the presidential election (not in whole - only in PART) - it is about getting the public involved in all levels of government.

That is the only way the people will win.

Who do you think will be Trump's running mate? Who do you think will be Bernie's? I am really looking forward to the Sanders-Trump debates, it will be HUGE!

You're about the only Republican I know so I will ask you, do you think Trump and Carson will form a ticket?

It depends if the establishment wants Trump, Hillary or whoever else.

You need to get over this believe that your vote counts with the D/R racket. Its all manipulated by the media.

You are a stooge doing just as the 1% want you to, the only thing that really matters is the vote all the sleeping in the park does nothing if you allow the 1% to pick the winners, we can change everything and take our country but people must remove their heads form their asses and vote to get rid of the GOP!

I think Bernie would love the opportunity. Trump would likely be calling Bernie names the whole time though - as that is what he does. I don't think that trump would come off very well at all.

Are you sure that's not being too involved for you?

Have you checked with the Koch brothers is it OK for you to watch?

" it is about getting the public involved in all levels of government."

I agree. And when you try - if you do ever decide to do something besides type all day- you will find what a racket the Dems and Reps have made it, and the racketeering will be too much for even you to tolerate.

You are a powerless victim unable to deal with the world, the GOP can be killed and with it the system brought down, and when it happens your taxes are going to go up, how does that make you feel turbo? are you pissed off about that? you are pissed off that you have to pay taxes aren't you?

You act like 100% of people don't claim as many deductions as they can when filing?

I see you don't mind dealing with the government if it can put a nickle in your pocket.
