Well its looking more and more likely that Trump will be the Republican nominee, and while I think he would be a better choice than Hilliary, I do have some serious issues with him. Chief among them are:

*He's too crass. He makes personal attacks instead of debating the issues. This including using crude language and sexual innuendos.
*He doesn't have any plans. He says a lot what he's going to do, but doesn't even have a general idea how hes going to do it.
*He's big on bravado and personal insults, but little on substance.
*He's not 100% pro-Israel. He has said Israel would have to "make sacrifices".
*He's not a conservative who believes in limited government and constitutional principles, he's more of a populist\nationalist.
*He flipflops. He's changed parties 5 times. He will say something one week and the next week say something completely different the next.
*It's debatable he's even Republican. He's given money to the Clinton Foundation, he has supported democrats in the past, he was in favor of Obamacare, he supported Obama's campaign in 2008, etc.
*He supports gun control, eminent domain, and Planned Parenthood.
*He was much too slow to disavow David Duke's endorsement. I'm not saying he's racist, but that delay tells me he cared more about losing votes than distancing himself from white supremacists.
*He doesn't encourage unity. I don't place all the blame on Trump for violence at some of his campaigns, I know groups like MoveOn and BLM also share the blame. However, he hasn't exactly dissuaded violence either. He has encouraged people to knock out protesters before.
*Finally, he's not a Christian but claims to be one anyways. Nothing in his personal life indicates he's a Christian, and when asked what his favorite verse he couldn't name it. He said he doesn't like having to ask God for forgiveness from his sins. He's been called a serial adulterer. The Constitution doesn't say someone has to be Christian to be president, however I take issues with someone claiming to be one to pander to the Evangelicals.

My observation is people are voting for Trump because they are angry, they are tired of political correctness, 8 years of Obama, and the Republican establishment that doesn't fight the democrats on anything. I can understand that, but I'm just not sure Trump is the right man for the job and I'm afraid that 4 years from now, if he is elected, we may find ourselves sorely disappointed. For what it's worth, I hope I'm wrong.

Well said. One thing that I think people respect is that Trump isn't taking those big donations, or have superpacs supporting him, at least as of now. He openly admits that he gave money to Clinton and other Democrats, and also to various Republicans. Money to politicians buys you their ear, and more. Giving them money doesn't make you beholden to them. It's the other way around. I know this first hand, and NO candidate is above responding favorably to a big donor who helped them win an election. Folks can believe that won't happen with so-and-so, but it will happen. If the people are lucky, the donor chooses his payback wisely - and most donors of large sums have a list. Believe that.

Hi JerseyG......Been away, way too long..Wasn't sure my spot was still here...lol...

There are alot of things wrong with Donald Trump, but at the same time, there are more things to the positives rather than his discredits.. . ... Watchman is right, people are angry. I am angry and Trump addresses my anger better than anyone else running on both sides.

We fail to realize that no President is as he seems on the campaign trail, and once he is in office, we see very little of the machinations that go on in there.. ..we are hoping he will do what he says he will do. I know this, Trump will not show his hand and keeps his cards close to his vest; which leads me to believe that everything that is wrong with America, he will try to fix and there are a lot of people that are not going to like the fixes.

Happy Easter to ya!. .. .

Watchman: My fear is that in 4 years (If either Trump or Hilary are elected) we will be living in a Dictatorship.

I agree with you, Watchman! And, I am angry as hell. I am angry that I spent the last almost 8 years in a movement that I no longer understand. I can not, and will not vote for Trump under any circumstance. The man is a liberal through and through and frankly, I think he is a narcissist and totally insane. We had much better choices and we end up with this vulgar bully that has spent the last 4 decades BUYING Washington off. He is not the solution, HE IS PART OF THE PROBLEM! I will be voting for Ted Cruz when I get in my voting booth in NJ for my primary as he is still on my ballot!  Get you some of that! #GYSOT
