I think the Democrats don't stand a chance. While I'm not a fan of Trump, this is the second presidential election where the Democrats will shoot themselves in the foot. If they could get their act together and focus on winning like Republicans then they may have a chance. Until that time they can't stand up to the showmanship and message of Trump's campaign. Another campaign for me where I can't find anyone to vote for!! I'll have to start looking into the libertarian party again, I guess?

Joe Biden has the I.Q. of a dog turd.
It is the primary reason why Obama picked him as a vice-president. ;)

The Dems understood a socialist Black man in the White House could be a risk, and to mitigate a risk of an assassination they figured no one would want Biden as president, no matter how much they hated Obama.

Biden is on his way out, poor showing in NH and he's done. Probably not done fingering and smelling females but it's Uncle Joe!

Please don't take this as an affront, because it isn't, but I can't help but be confused by this post. Knowing what the Democrats stand for, and what they've done to this country, and what their policies mean with regard to limiting freedom and promoting dependency, how could anyone who treasures what the American republic is founded upon ever, even for a moment, consider voting for a Democrat?

Now, one has to go back many elections before finding one where voting for the lesser of two evils wasn't in play. But that's because once Gov't started pandering, both parties knew that they had to keep that up, and intensify it, in order to survive. But, if you look back closely, the lesser of those two evils has never had a 'D' after their name. I'm no fan of McCain nor Romney, but either of those would have been better than an Obama. A Bush or a Dole would have been better than a Clinton. Voting for a third party, or staying home in some sort of self-righteous protest is, in essence, cutting off your nose to spite your face, and simultaneously helping throw our republic into harm's way.

This is the mindset that reinforces for me my belief that we Americans are too insulated and live our lives in a vacuum. We need more exposure to people who have had to flee socialist and communist regimes in order to survive. People who have had family members shot for disagreeing with gov't. People who have watched family members die because there were no medical or health services worth a damn. People who have had their belongings taken and redistributed. We need for Americans to read the founding documents and learn what those men meant when they wrote what they wrote. There's no one on the left today that stands for any of that. On the contrary, they stand for the opposite. You saw them all sitting on their opulent butts last night throughout the speech. That should tell you, in a nutshell, all that you need to know.

I understand all the hate and shade sent my way but you guys do see that Trump is not really a Republican right? He is just a self-opportunist who has manipulated the party into his servants for fear that the alternative will cost them their jobs. That’s not really what the Republican Party should be about. If you are pro-party, which I understand and can support, then you should be in favor of the party ideals (small government, capitalism, constitutional rights, strong moral values, etc). I don’t see how you can support Trump so blindly. Yes his priorities are important and things I think are valuable (nation first mentality, repositioning the US as a world leader, protecting our innovation, border security, reshaping trade, bringing common sense back to the main stream versus this overly politically correct environment we have found ourselves in). All great placeholders for policy and change! However how he goes about everything is the problem for me. I truly believe if he quit tweeting from the hours of 11:00 pm-4:00 am, followed a little protocol, didn’t do things like serve McDonalds to championship teams at the White House, and quit verbally threatening people with names (as he is the president and should rise above it, not that they don’t deserve them). I think he would honestly be publicly stronger, have more valid party support and not drive the news media as far over the edge to where they are constantly criticizing him every minute. Just my thoughts in an effort to have a real dialogue versus being rude or calling people names like others have. Good night everyone.

So the fact that policy-wise he is probably the most conservative President in our life time is just a Jedi mind trick? Good luck convincing the powers that be here that you are anything but a troll.

Booty-judge is probably worse than Uncle Gaff on confiscation. And, he is not nearly as dumb about weapons.
That may be true, but this country is not yet ready to elect an openly gay president. Not saying a gay or lesbian shouldn't be president, but it is what it is. The hardcore left would love it, but moderates (who make up the majority of voters in this country) would probably not be nearly as enthusiastic. Personally I couldn't care less as long as he/she is a firm 2A supporter, but finding a LGBTQ politician who's pro-2A would be like looking for a set of hens teeth.

Maybe your staying home on election day would be best for the rest of us.

What you really mean is:

"If Trump would only act like all the other Returdicans over the last 50 years...."

Yeah, no thanks. He is the right man for the job at the right time. NO ONE else could or would have done the things he has done over the last 3 years or said the things he said last night.

Look at the only Republican to vote to convict Trump: Mitt Romney. Look at his 2A record while he was governor of Massachusetts. That should tell you everything you need to know about RINOs like him.

Not to mention incredibly stupid. He alienated his fellow Republicans while not winning any new fans among Democrat-leaning voters. He basically just torpedoed his own political career.... all for nothing.

This was a letter to the editor that was in Monday's Albuquerque Journal. With a few modifications, I think that I could have written it:

PRESIDENT DONALD Trump is an obnoxious, bullying loud mouth. His hair and skin color are unnatural and in reality, troubling. He is a bombastic egomaniac with unchecked delusions of grandeur. The man is one of the worst orators in American history, and he couldn’t use an appropriate adjective or adverb if his life depended on
it.

He is often childish, churlish and crude. His own people have trouble working and dealing him because he is so headstrong and demanding. President Trump knows little of subtlety, grace or humility. I cringe at some of his tweets.

I don’t give a damn. I don’t care one bit about any of that because he has single-handedly, with no help from the Democrats or their surrogates, despite an activist judiciary and with precious little support from the Republicans — I hesitate to characterize them as his own party — dramatically decreased illegal crossings on our southern border. Our economy is booming.

Unemployment is at it lowest level in decades, especially among minorities.
Our foreign enemies have been kept on their heels. We are making better trade deals. He supports our military and respects what they do, unlike his predecessor. He supports and respects our policemen, unlike his predecessor. The activist judiciary has been placed in check due to his appointments. The man hates socialism and will fight it all the way to the ground.

Unlike his predecessor, President Trump loves this country. The Democrats hate him because (they) haven’t and couldn’t do what he has done for our country, and worse yet for them, they can take no credit for any of it. They hate him because they know that none of that crowd of presidential candidates, singly or collectively, could do a better job. That hate him because after three-plus years of trying 24/7, all they have to impeach him is a weak charge based on biased, second- and third hand impressions of a phone call or two. The No and Never-Trumpers will readily admit they are against anything he is for.

So, just turn all of what he has done 180 degrees and is that really what they are for?
Do they really want a weak economy, high unemployment, terrible trade deals, enemies at the gate and all the rest? He has my vote based on his accomplishments, not his personality. All of you have the right to think for yourself; question is, do you still have the ability?

Systema1927, I agree with you on this editorial. The things that make him grating are also what makes him able to stand it the s**t storm and do what should have be done decades ago. If he could only undo all the gun laws. How cool would it be on his way out he could pull something like that off.

Wow. Learned everything I needed to about the real people behind the posts on this forum tonight. I am not a troll, an avid reader and contributer to this and many other firearms forums. I hope everyone here is a better person off the internet. Good luck in 2020, I believe Trump will win. You guys will have another four years of tranquility. Cheers. I'll start looking for a therapist or whatever now. Might be better company than the what I thought were smart level headed people on this forum.
