    I honestly haven’t been paying much attention to the candidates yet. I’ll have to read up on him.

    It was all a waste of time. There will be no escape now from Trump. Oh well…

    I’m with you Kate, definitely hopped onto the Mayor Pete train! The more I see and hear about him the more I love him! Especially the part where he went on Fox News to do an interview and based on what I read, he’s even won over a percentage of their viewers. I read an article the other week where the writer said his Fox News loving dad actually was a huge Mayor Pete fan, if I can find it I’ll post it here.

    All that being said though, I’m still pretty positive that Trump, unfortunately, WILL be re-elected, regardless of the Democrat that gets the presidential nomination. Really hope I’m wrong here, cuz I ended up being quite wrong about Hillary winning the election….definitely wouldn’t mind being wrong again on my prediction lol.

    The only way that shit head will be kicked out of office is if people enroll and vote. This is why McConnell is against making voting day a national holiday and why the Republicans have been systematically removing people from voting rolls, closing polls in more Democratic leaning areas and making it harder and harder to actually vote in elections.

    Bah. Everybody sucks.

    You want to read something really scary? Read the comments in the on-line Wall Street Journal. Like the responses on today’s editorial on the House committee requesting Trump’s taxes. Or just about anything remotely Trump related. A lot of sick people, who likely are well populated by white businessmen.

    I try to limit the comments I read. It’s devastating to read about what happened in Sri-lanka over Easter. If I want to ponder depressing tragedies it might as well be over true hardship and not made-up buffoonery coming out of the white house.

    I think most anonymous comments online are just commercials created by people who have no better way to spend their time. There are unhappy people all over the world but people who have the time and means to spew non-sense are usually not the people whose opinions are the most noteworthy. The real leaders, educators, workers, and the happiest among us probably aren’t spending copious amounts of time worrying about Sarah Sanders or the other white house pundits making bank or letting them affect their lives, choices, or willingness to compromise. I really hope the next elected officials are more than spin doctors, cooler heads prevail, and the internet comments continue to catalogue the more off among us for some security. I continue to value the comments here more than just about anywhere online. Best way to take action politically still involves action and not paying mind to dodo-heads and their outposts.

    I mean, I think you do need to pay attention to what people are posting, even if you don’t like it. You need to know what you’re up against. Most people here didn’t think Trump would actually be electable. They ignored his supporters. That didn’t work out so well for us. You can’t just ignore and hope for the best. You have to be proactive.

    In other news, I’m probably on some kind of watchlist now. In the past six days, I’ve been at the airport the same time as Pence three different times. First Dallas then both my trip to and from Savannah this weekend. Thanks for the holdups. Jerk.

    @Ktfran- I can respect that point of view. I think it’s great to read articles. I just don’t think a lot of comment sections offer a whole lot of new ideas. The people I know who voted for Trump will likely vote for him again. I feel like I understand where they are coming from. Pundits like Ramesh Ponnuru and Michael Moore may influence comments but I think reading comment sections after articles often give a disproportionate view of what most Americans and others actually believe. It’s like listening to a classroom discussion; the loudest voices tend to lead the discourse but that doesn’t mean they have the most interesting or intelligent ideas on the topic. They just happened to be there and typed out their opinion on something they often think they understand better than others whether they actually do or not.

    I’ve had enough people in real life who want to debate me on their talking points that I usually find the discussions disingenuous and usually mainly for their own personal benefit. Maybe it’s a personal flaw but I find it demoralizing to constantly focus on the differences between myself and others. I’m more interested in building myself up than breaking down, right now.

    I gotta say this article has tempered my enthusiasm for Mayor Pete a little bit.
