Why and independent would vote for a democrat:
Global warming is a fact
Illegals aren't just going to go home
Gays/lesbians do have rights
women have choices also
Unions suck but not as much as the NRA
Intelligent design is a pathetic theory
Most unemployed would rather work.
That Republican congress has certainly changed things around. Clinton, Sanders or Biden would have a tough fight against a Bush /Rubio ticket. that will never happen because the number two on a GOP ticket is clearly going to be a nut job like Trump, Huckabee, Santorum, Cruz, Carson Fiorina, or an equally qualified loon that evangelicals and teabaggers will insist that a Palin wannabe needs to be on the ticket.
This is like Obamacare. How many times do you want the supreme court do tell you, for all practical purposes, that you don't get the final vote?
The GOP is on the wrong side of every social issue from global warming to gay rights. they just won't give up on Obamacare , abortion, or same sex marriage and then they wonder why they can't win a national election..
A fifth grader could explain that most voters don't agree with 80% of what they call a conservative platform.
Tough economy. Nice money for a little fetal tissue and fun farming it. So what's the problem? I thought Republicans loved small businesses.
Used to separate job applicants into two piles based on the school they graduated from. Lots of really good small colleges as well as more prestigious larger universities. Quachita would have been in the pile on the left since I didn't really have a need for a religious banana
Nobody really cares if PP is funded or not. what is silly is the GOP platform that opposes abortion. some of the more evangelical oriented right wingers even oppose it in cases of rape. It's just another case that makes it difficult for a moderate Republican to get the nomination when the party platform is on the minority side of virtually every social issue.
Frankly, I think Ben carson is a really smart guy and more pragmatic than most GOP candidates. I will not vote for anyone that can't separate church from state.
Huckabee must be a moderate compared to the average evangelical nut job. Ben Carson on Meet the Press just stated that the bible may take precedent over the constitution depending on the specific issue.. Just what we need is a guy who has formed his own opinion an a specific passage of the bible to decide whether Mathew, Mark Luke or John should take precedent over the ideals of Washington, Franklin, Madison, Hamilton et al.. ISIS operates on the same perverse principal - my religious beliefs will be yours or else.
Why anyone would trust Iran is beyond me. Even if the agreement gets by congress, it is just kicking the can down the road. I am not a big fan of Israel but if they choose a military option, I would support them.
Typical evangelical right wing nut job . Let's face it most of the murderers are probably middle of the road Republican doctors..
Have to like the Donald's chances. He may be dumber than Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachman but he has more money
We also admire the vast majority of scientists that are unequivocal in their research that shows global warming is not only a fact but getting worse because of greenhouse gasses. The entire scientific community laughs at those that believe intelligent design is actually a valid theory. The Supreme court has often ruled that religious beliefs are out of bounds relative to the rule of law. The justice department has recovered 40 or more billion dollars from banks that preyed on uneducated wannabe home owners. Fortunately, the American public, as dumb as we are, will never elect a candidate that espouses trickle down economics, there should be no path to citizenship for illegals and gays and lesbians should be second class citizens.
Typical GOP whiner. Obama has less than two years in office and nut jobs still persist in stupid stuff like his college records. Time better spent on how to get a GOP nominee fro president that could actually beat Hillary. Won't happen because the party can't get out of it's own way. Eight more years of whining.
CLMT is my largest holding - way more than a balanced portfolio should have. My concern is that CLMT implied that they expected to raise their distribution but that didn't happen. That's ok but not good news. I expect that their coverage ratio will fall below 1 but their conference call will be very positive. A #$%$ shoot for me but I am holding until after the CC.
