    Yes, he's religious right. He also wants to abolish the IRS and institute a "flat tax". Some of his ideas are pretty far out of the mainstream.

    His "religious right" stance is a con game. If he even had an inkling of what it meant to be a Christian he wouldn't lie, and hate, so much. Then too, he i scompeting against another lying coward, Trump. You might want to read this about Trump, the "self made man":

    http://www.breitbart.com/big-govern...t-trump-tower-built-with-chinese-visa-scheme/

    "Bloomberg reported Monday that Trump Bay Street, a 50-story apartment complex being built in Jersey City by the Kushner Companies, is being partially funded through a controversial immigration program known as EB-5.
    The CEO of the Kushner Companies, Bloomberg notes, is Jared Kushner, who is married to Trump’s daughter Ivanka.

    The completed project “will have an outdoor pool, indoor golf simulator and sweeping views of Lower Manhattan,” Bloomberg notes.

    Under EB-5, foreigners receive a two-year visa in exchange for investing at least $500,000 in the U.S., with enhanced opportunities for permanent residency. Out of 10,000 visas available, Chinese citizens account for about 85% of the total awarded, the Wall Street Journal has reported.

    The developer has allegedly used the visa program in an explicit sales pitch to Chinese investors, complete with a “a Chinese-subtitled video” that “leads viewers behind the wheel of a car into Jersey City with scenes of the tower, all to the tune of the theme song from The Sopranos, ‘Woke Up This Morning,'” Bloomberg reports."

    So, that makes two competing conmen.

    That about suns it up, and it looks like one of those conmen is going to win the nomination. Just think of the millions they will "earn".

    Right, the Bible says a tree is known by it's fruit. OK, what does Trump generally display? It's mostly a display of childishness, greed, pride, cruel insensitivity (the case of mocking the disabled reporter). Of course, we are all human, but Trump is over the top. Of course, excusing his sinful behavior as fun loving opposition to political correctness.

    Here is a list of the time Trump has called for acts of violence by his followers, and then he denies he condones violence:

    He would draw a huge crowd. Trump likes big crowds, after all.

    I will agree with you. The answer is that the same game isn't different from what happened the last electoral campaign period...or the one before that. Once candidates start to form, alliances (both public and behind the scenes) start forming.

    It's a sad, but expected part of politics. Religion doesn't occur in a vacuum. It is shaped by and shapes politics as well.

    Trump doesn't need alliances doesn't want them. He wants a tent so big you can't see it and you don't solicit people to come they choose to come.

    That's different.

    It's the economy and we desterately need it great again.

    Again, I will ask just what is it Trump can do to make "America Great again" that is fiscally possible, and rational?

    Trump held a charity gathering for Veterans, and bragged about the millions of dollars he raised. One problem, none of the Veterans groups have seen any of the money as of yet. Maybe he used it to "self finance" his campaign.

    They come to see the entertainment with the clown in charge. He has always needed alliances. One can not accomplish anything without some form of alliances. Even in his bankruptcies, or divorces, he needed an alliance with his attornys.

    In short, he wants a show and we're in such deep straits that we are willing to even entertain the idea of a show.
