  • Democrat Voter Cost/Benefit Analysis

    It is very easy to use logical shorthand and say that, "Democrat voters will always vote for the candidate with the (D) after their name." This is a quick and oft-repeated and easily understood means of explaining Democrat voting behavior. We are, in essence, saying that Democrat voters are foolish people who are prejudiced towards Democrat candidates. But are they really that simple? I believe that Democrat voters use their own cost/benefit analysis when deciding who to vote for. They vote based on economic considerations. They do not vote based on groupthink or celebrity adulation. It is important to understand...
  • DNC Promoting an all-male charter school? (Vanity)

    07/26/2016 5:01:41 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 5 replies
    This is the school just promoted by the DNC. It's gender segregated. Republicans support that; Dems oppose and the ACLU has gone after schools for segregating courses like math or science by gender despite evidence it helps kids. It also appears to be a charter school. Republicans support school choice and charter schools; Dems oppose. Did they screen this before promoting a Republican concept at the DNC?

    Yes, we will likely survive 8 years of President Obama, but the country does have a BREAKING POINT. And we are there. Losing one more election tips the Supreme Court into Democrat hands (along with what’s left on our side on the lower courts). At that point our side will simply have NO RECOURSE to stop Hillary. Congress has already been reduced to an ‘advisory’ role by Obama - he considers the laws passed by Congress to be suggestions, open to his interpretations, with his right to enforce, re-write, or ignore as he wishes. With the courts in their hands,...

    Love to see everyone enjoying the afterglow of this amazing GOP Convention. Haven’t felt like this politically since 1980. I think morning is once again coming to America. Art Laffer, economist, has analyzed Trumps chances and it brought up some thoughts I have on the Laffer Curve. I love the curve but I hate the terminology... Laffer and Reagan brought us an unprecedented and historic 25 years of growth and prosperity until the Left finally shut it down. Tax cuts are a must, but we need to flip the reasoning - we need to change the terminology and the paradigm...

Multiple witnesses, not just one which originally included a Muslim female, say he yelled Allahu Akbar during the shooting rampage. He, or someone who knows him, had internet skills because an account linked to him hacked a Facebook account to put up false ads to try and lure children to the McDonalds at the mall where the murders took place with free gifts. A like fake ad tried to lure people to the Macys but hasn't yet been linked to the shooter. Some...

    Free Republic traditionally frowns on vanities. I know, I've been a member here since 1999. I too have had my knuckles cracked by the Moderator's ruler and my posts promptly yanked or locked because I could have easily responded on an existing thread. Vanities crowd out the real news. They're too numerous to count, and most vanities do nothing but stoke the poster's ego (ME! ME! ME! I WANNA BE THE NEXT GEORGE WILL!). And most of them are frankly, quite boring. However, some vanities do serve a legitimate purpose. Breaking news, for example is one. When FReepers hear about...

    Ted Cruz must have a strategy of dividing the Republican Party (with full support of the Republican Oligarchs behind the scenes) to make sure Hillary wins because of the division. Somehow they are determining that Trump is not going to run again in 2020 and Cruz will then seek the nomination. With the absolute mess that Hillary will make, Cruz will be seen as the only solution by the conservative side. Good strategy, but not good for the country.

This experiment in a republic form of government with limited federal controls will not survive a Hillary presidency. I believe in my heart that Trump will be a transformational president.

    Why did Trump "let" Cruz Speak, if he knew he would not endorse? Cruz had majorities in enough delegations to have had his name placed in nomination and to have forced a roll call vote (and to have avoided the RNC nullifying his DC and Utah votes by declaring them votes for Trump "because the candidate had not been nominated"). I'm convinced that there was the deal.. not have himself nominated and get to speak to the convention. Erik Erikson has tweeted that the Trumpers orchestrated the booing in advance. Others have written that Trump is more interested in "getting...

They know all the answers - if we want gun violence to end, we need to eliminate guns (at least from law abiding citizens). If cops don't want to get shot in cold blood, perhaps they shouldn't shoot blacks in cold blood (he didn't exactly say that, but the message seems to be something like that). And the list goes on. So how about if we help. Let's list out a few 'suggestions' for the president to calm...

    Islam is at war with Kafirs, i.e. "unbelievers" who reject Islam. A cursory look around the globe will see Muslims slaughtering non-Muslims in not only Europe and America, but also Africa and Asia. In fact, they've killed far more Christians in Nigeria and Hindus in India than they have atheists in Europe. And of course they've killed far more Muslims who are "Kafirs" because they don't subscribe to the right particular interpretation of Islam. By casting it as "Islam versus the West" it allows the SJW types to make it seem as though this is just another chapter in the...

They claim, against all evidence, that police are targeting blacks. They ignore, despite overwhelming evidence, that blacks commit crimes at a rate greatly disproportionate to their percentage of the population. If blacks committed fewer crimes, fewer would be shot.To make that point, perhaps it's time to create a counterpoint group to Black Lives Matter: Black Crimes Matter. They're loud-wrong, so make the truth known forcefully. And oh, by the way, pray for peace.

As a chaplain for 10 years I have seen them work up close to defuse family problems, befriend youth, contribute to the community as coaches, take dangerous drivers off the streets, deal with gangs and take on the bad guys. I have seen how the last thing an officer wants to do is discharge his weapon or even unholster it. But he or she does want to go home to his family. So any suggestions out there...

Hillary will NOT be given that chance if she is god-forbid elected. If elected, we the people must make it known that we are being governed against our will. This country is too divided and Clinton is such a criminal, that there is no time or room for any good-will for such a President-elect.
