    It’s true that the GOP “establishment” is not fond of Trump; not my first choice either. However, in November, all conservatives and all Republicans will unite to make sure neither of the socialists is elected.

    Correct. The socialists on the Democrat side will lose.

    Tommy, the demands of an interconnected species in our modern era means solutions to many problems also have to be interconnected. I know you’re set on shouting socialist at anyone who’ll listen, but more collective-action changes are coming so get ready. Sorry, man, your attempt to outrun the inevitable must be tiring. This is not about the parties and their tired tropes. It’s about how the species is slowly adapting to its own success. You, my friend, are spitting in a hurricane…against the wind.

    Neither true socialists nor Trump types should ever be elected to anything.

    The problem is that to a lot of people, anything left of Trump is “socialist”!

    You are correct, but that would at least somewhat depend on just what would be your definition of socialism. In the correct definition of socialism, the government would control all means of the production of goods. And neither the so called "socialist " governments of Northern Europe nor Bernie Sanders is even close to agreeing with true socialism by that definition.


    And by any definition of a social society all governments are “socialist” by the nature of a people giving power and responsibily to a number of elected individuals for the greater good of all. And unfortuantely for the people of the US we seem to have lost sight of this important principle that we have generally adopted during our run of the longest lasting elected republic in the history of the world!


    But from what I have seen of Bernie Sanders (please go out to his web site and actually see what it is he wishes to accomplish with his presidency, it is a real eye opener, even from someone that originally supported Hillary Clinton as I did). All of his ideas directly support the great thinking middle class workers of this great country, and that would actually bring back the kind of greatness that we were once so noted for thoughout the world! Perhaps he would even select Hillary Clinton as a VP running mate. I think that would give the American voter a clear choice over such a ticket as Donald Trump/Sarah Palin ( heaven help us!). I guess I am just a relatively naive optimist. but I do think such a contest would be a no brainer and a landslide for the middle class and Bernie Sanders!


    However, in the really long run, I do not think that ANY politician is going to really have the influence that they all seem to think they have. The real agents of positive change, not only for the US itself, but even more importantly for the civilization of human kind, are the at least somewhat idealistic billionaires that are willing to put their billions into a general improvement of that civilization for all of us. People like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Elon Musk, Paul Allen, and Robert Bigelow: along with their companies and workers, are the true determiners of the eventual fate of mankind. And as at least this particular left over 1960’s technological hippy. that was one of the 400.000 or so that had worked directly on the greatest single effort in the history of mankind, the Apollo project to place human beings on the moon, I still have the idealogical optimism that we as mankind will have a far greater future, regaardless of our politics!!!

    after Trump’s dominance in the NH Primaries get ready for a battle in South Carolina for someone to emerge as the establishment favorite. Kasich was 2nd in NH but carries a moderate message to the more conservative SC. Bush and Rubio are so close there is no clear leader of the establishment emerging.
    I’d say the elephant is pushing himself through the grinder and Trump is just taking advantage. If the GOP knew what it was doing it wouldn’t have let things get this far.

    I think that God is sitting on His heavenly throne and laughing at twclix’ s post. “our modern era”…“collective-action changes coming”…“the species is slowly adapting to its own success”…ignoring that God created Man “perfect” but Adam used his free will to choose to downgrade himself and us, his children who inherited free will and DNA, etc.
    -
    I suggest you obtain a King James Bible and read Revelation to see “where mankind is going” and it is the opposite of “success”!
    -
    How warped is the brain that thinks collectivism (fascism, socialism, communism et al) is a “success” goal for humanity…this must be evidence of double or triple brainwashing by leftwing college professors.
    -
    God’s system is set and mankind cannot change it…every human is born a sinner and sins from birth, and needs the Savior Jesus who died to pay for all our sins and will forgive us and renew our spirit and help us live as God intended on earth, and after that, the judgment: the saved judged for rewards and the unsaved for rejecting Jesus. Best to rethink your entire philosophy, twclix. God bless you.

    I respect your right to believe in a bunch of stories. But if you think our species isn’t more interconnected every day, you are simply wrong. There you sit, typing messages to complete strangers who can be thousands of miles away.Uh huh, that’s been going on throughout human history. We get fruit in the winter—all because of interconnected people. We travel in aircraft thousands of miles in a few hours. More interconnection. We can speak with others across the street or across the globe. Inte connections. Our products and services are the result of thousands of interconnected people all doing their part. Science is global and very interconnected. Innovative technologies pop up all around the world, virtually simultaneously—all sharing interconnections. Your view cannot be disputed because you have no basis except faith for claiming what you claim. Those who cannot deal with the realities of our highly (and newly) interconnected species in our ambiguous and non-linear world are falling behind, and it scares them terribly.

    That’s right. But it also helps to make large contributions of cash to your favorite TV evangelist, too, to help Jesus notice you.

    I saw something the other day that greatly softened my dislike for Trump. In one of the debates (I think the last one) Carson’s name was called but apparently he didn’t hear it so he stayed at the side of the stage. When Trump’s name was called up, he stood by Carson’s side. When the rest of the Republicans were called, they went up. At the end Carson was called again, went up and then Trump.
    .
    That was absolute class on the part of Mr. Trump.
