Dump Trump. Send the braying jack ass packing. Hah!!
But it ain't gonna happen in Kansas. I present to you............The Koch Industries Regime "Governor" Brownback
And then there is the alleged and grossly incompetent "Secretary of State" the champion of nationwide voter suppression, the coast to coast non-resident Kris Kobach.
The issue of how many people are blindly ignoring the fact that violent crime is down across the nation except for Democratic-controlled urban hellholes. Trashing the Constitution for all Americans is not the answer.
So, you are saying that, under Barack, crime in the country is down?
Manners. There isn't a leader or a gentleman in the party. And it shows.
The same could be said of the Democrats.
But it would be wrong. Your bigger issue is the blatant hypocrisy of promoting yourself as the "moral" party while you trot out Scott Baio and his vulgar tweets. Do as I say, not as I do?
When have I copy/pasted or linked to a tweet by Scott Baio? Not seeing that is my list of posts. But then, reality was never your strong suit.
We're talking about the Republican party right now and not your specific actions. Unless you now run the RNC?
"...while you trot out Scott Baio and his vulgar tweets..." Did you even read Brett's post?
I did. I even read all of it, which helps for comprehension. "You" in this case is plural. *Your bigger issue is the blatant hypocrisy of promoting yourself as the "moral" party...*
Rude people that park in the fire lane at the grocery store
To the original question. I would like to see both of the parties return to the days of statesmanship rather than politics. I would also like to see the end of corporate and foreign government donations to both parties. Why are bribes still ok? At the top of my political wish pyramid would be the ending of the virulence that continues to thrust on the nation by the media and our countries "leaders". Of course that is not the government responsibility to fix. We, believe it or not, can strive to do that ourselves.
People with more than 12 items using the express lane.
Long-term Far East policy is by far the most important issue but that seems to be off the table for both parties so w/e I guess it's time to start learning Mandarin
Overturn Citizens United.Remove all social engineering planks from the platform i.e. gay marriage, women's health right.Require Congress to work for the good of the country as a whole instead of their current mantra of ideological take my ball and go home attitude.
If you expect to see Democratic talking points being repeated at the RNC, you are doomed to disappointment.The same could be said about Republican talking points at the DNC.Sauce goose, sauce, gander.
What are the Republican talking points?
So far? That Hillary talks with the devil and Ted Cruz thinks Trump is a tool. Or so I've gathered. Maybe we'll get around to some actual talking points tonight.
Reality would be a nice change of pace.
The question was what would you like to see, not what will you likely not see.
"If you expect to see Democratic talking points being repeated at the RNC, you are doomed to disappointment."
You should tell that to Trump's wife. She had several Democratic talking points right out of Michelle Obama's speech!
How about some concrete policy ideas?! Foreign, economic,domestic, something besides "It'll be great! Trust me." Seems like there are no ideas on how to get anything done, just a whole lot of bloviating and trashing of others who disagree.
I would like to know why one of their Rep. candidates for office in Missouri, keeps running adds in a paper in Lawrence Ks ?
It just looks a little.............odd ?
Sure,.....it must be "freedom of speech" ! ?
Or, Is KOBACH trying to lure senile Lawrence Ks. / Douglas County Republican voters, into voting in Missouris' next election ?.........so he can Catch them ? !
That would make Kobachs' day !
This candidate has a shotgun ( in their commercial )..........just like Saddam ( who was Iraqs law and order guy )............but no cigar, hat or balcony ....................just a low budget knock off !
