I voted today, the turn out is way up! I will bet that means Trump wins big. All of this for not…..


Fear you are correct but hoping plenty of folks are turning to vote for someone other than The Asshat. Turn out is also probably way up today because it’s the last day of early voting but yeah I think it is way up in general.

I asked the lady at my voting place, and she said biggest she has ever seen all week long. As you know my candidate is Kasich, which I stated early and often many times. I will vote for Trump over Hillary any day of the week and twice on Sunday 😃

Jones and Eaton touting Rubio’s “vision.” In what world are higher federal budget deficits and a reckless, uneducated foreign policy a good vision? If these people think the future of the Republican Party is economic and foreign policy that would make even the hardiest neocon blush, then I’m afraid for the Republican Party.


And who will they endorse March 16th after NoShow loses his home state following no wins on Super Tuesday thus giving him a total of ZERO wins?

As someone said recently, 2nd place is the new 1st place.
