    Martin, I have not caught all your articles, but this one (GOP Nominations). You did not give any specifics for the Democrats… What are you saying?
    Thanks, Mary

    Don’t you think that some combination of Republican candidates would have a better chance of winning next November? I’m suggesting maybe a Carson with either Rubio or Cruz ticket; Carson has not attacked either of Latino candidates so far, and neither of them seem to have a huge problem with him. Trump has painted a target on his back with all his mean-spirited attention-getting bravado!
    And if Clinton continues to show her sneaky, untrustworthy ways which bring her down in the polls, I think we could have a winning team. She certainly does not have the charisma of Obama, nor the call for change! Sanders’ Communistic ideas are unrealistic, and I don’t see the appeal, except to the fringe.
    Don’t you think an African-American/Latino ticket with conservative but centrist leanings, that wants to get spending under control, which is better for all our children’s future, is the way to go?

    I wish the Liberal left-wing MSM, including the Wall Street Journal would quit try to tell conservatives for whom to vote. We can make up out own minds without drivel from your leftist rag. Stick to fiances… not political incantations using unproven financial propaganda. What we are doing now is NOT working.

    It is too bad we do not have one good Republican candidate. I will always vote Republican. I am sure Hilary will be the new President. Politically, this was decided a long time ago. She and Barack Obama, along with the fifty(50) million people on government subsidies, will vote for her and do whatever is necessary to fraudulently put her in the Presidency.

    Yeah, I am one of the 50 million on government subsidy (although I did pay FICA and Medicare tax for over 44 years), and yes, I will vote for Hillary (or preferably, Bernie). Oh, and by the way, the GOP hasn’t had a “good” candidate since Nelson Rockefeller.

    Trump is without doubt the major player in the field of Republican candidates, and I agree that he is a big-government proponent, although I wouldn’t call him a crony republican because he sounds in many ways more like a Democrat. You make no mention of Sen. Rand Paul, who, although far back in polling, is the only real small-gov’t conservative in the pack, and when conservative republicans look more closely at Trump they may, as you point out, become disillusioned and cast their sights at the candidate who is sincerely in the conservative camp. There is still a long way to go, and we will see how this develops.

    Taxes. Go to a flat tax, supplemented with a national sales tax9 (consumption tax). Eliminate deductions, except home mortgage and only on one residence. Home construction is a major driver of our economy, and carries with it other business, appliances , furniture, etc.
    Finally limit congress and all gov’t employees to same benefits as all. Eliminate lifetime full salary, term limits, and let them go back to work.

    I contend that any one of the GOP candidates would be far superior to what we have in the administration now. Hilary Clinton and the Clinton foundation should be concerning to all Americans as she would sell the soul of the White House for a dollar. The Clinton foundation and the money they have accepted in the name of charity is questionable at best. The GOP has a talented and diverse, moral, intelligent field of amazing candidates. I’m very impressed with all of our candidates and proud to be a republican.

    I will go with D.Trump no matter what. We need a really leader. That is my opinion.

    Yeah, Donald will “lead” us right into the nineteenth century.

    Each of the top 4 candidates have strengths and weaknesses. The two top candidates do not have government experience, while Senators Rubio and Cruz lack executive experience. The US cannot afford another President who requires on the job training. We need a nominee that is capable to step into the job from day one. My hope is that there will be a draft Mitt Romney effort and he will be the next Republican nominee.

    Jon Kasich is the most qualified! I am not from Ohio. I feel that he has without a doubt the most knowledge, and would be a great president!

    Another subtle hit job on leaders of GOP runners. In case you don’t get it the common – we the people – who pay for all this lunacy and stupidity don’t want Kasich, Bush, Graham – they helped perpetuate this problem and have done nothing to stop Obama. And for immigration – legal. Stop rewarding the illegals that Bush and Kasich want to give citizenship to and don’t import terrorists. Simple, common sense solutions that unfortunately Congress caters to lobbyist, chamber of commerce and Obama. Sorry, we the people have had it. PERIOD.

    Somehow I get nervous when ALL of the people in the race do not get mentioned in these articles ie: Rand Paul. We the PEOPLE need to have access to ALL of the information on ALL of the candidates so WE can make our own decisions. I like Rand Paul because he has a plan and he sticks to it: while the others are yelling and shaking their fists, he is still fighting. I just get nervous when the News Media tells us who we should vote for!
    Thanks, Glen Crofford

    What to comment on all republican candidates:
    Every one who has a brain and who is able to think as human will see that with this candidates plans we are going DOWN as USA. Greediness and selfishness are the APOCALYPSE of our COUNTRY…

    Greediness and selfishness of fat pigs like yourself sir, laying around on your back while expecting the rest of us to work to pay for you and your ilk. Though you clearly lack a brain you did get it half right!

    I worked six days a week for over 44 years. I never lay on my back. I sleep face down. And I don’t think someone is brainless just because their life experience leads them to truths that differ from mine. IT’S CALLED TOLERANCE.

    So by that 50-50 final summary of yours, the other 50-50 possible winner would be from your side of the political spectrum in Hillary Clinton, a known criminal and murderer, at least in the private sector. No wonder our country cannot right its ship back to freedom and positive production. You people still back the nefarious underworld types. Wall Street is not America’s friend. But the cabal won’t last forever. Have a nice day in purgatory.

  16. M Diffie says:

    We need a candidate who will stand up and not back down and change his mind on issues. Ted Cruz is the only one that I see that knows the constitution and stands up for it. He understands the importance of keeping America free for everyone. Trump relies on personal insults and not issues and has questionable business tactics. Carson is good but has no presence and seems wimpy. Rubio has changed his stand on several issues so you can’t be sure what he will do. We don’t need the Rino influence of Rubio.

    So, as expected no matter the the thoughts of American people. After reading your statement it is very apparently clear and obvious GOP has Mage their choice of the top four candidates with total disregard of their poll numbers and seems to narrow down by the long statement concerning Trumpthat we will in deed end up with a candidate which was not near a majority in polls. But by approval of GOP. So with saying this it clearly suggest you have decided against Donald Trump as a republicanwhateveryoucallyourselves.
    This proves to me I made the right choice in selecting the man and not affiliating with a party anymore. Appearing the election will fall right in hands of Hillary by GOP Choice, not the voter or poll ratings.

  18. Joe Davenport says:

    Guess I’ll just go with Bernie . That seems to be a close to Hillary as I can get without voting for her since GOP AND democrats have become one anyway. Or I may just sit it out. Hillary already has it won anyway I imagine. Your other three haven’t got a chance of beating her anyway.

    Just read Hutchinson’s read on the GOP horserace and, like most of the other media’s opinions, I’m fascinated that nowhere is there any mention of Rand Paul or any of his positions, many of which are eminently sensible. It’s like there is some hidden rule that the media is to pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. Goebbels once said something like, “Repeat a lie often enough, it becomes truth.” Is this media blackout something like an Inverse Goebbels? He doesn’t exist if we never mention his name?
