On a positive note:
How is it that the same people who gave us Bush/Dole/Bush/McCain/Romney somehow think @realDonaldTrump isn't conservative enough #NRORevolt[1]
It is these powers [to effortlessly bring up taboo subjects and slam them like a dead carp onto the Thanksgiving table] that terrify the establishment -- the mainstream media, the corporate elite, the RNC and the DNC and all others who embrace the status quo. The Donald -- not the faux socialist Bernie Sanders-- is today’s genuine radical presidential aspirant, the uncontrollable bull in the china shop of taboos, and elites clearly sense his power.[2]

There is a huge number of people out there who are tired of stepping into the voting booth and having to make a choice between which jerk wad they think will lie to them the least, which one will steal the least from the public coffers, which one makes their skin crawl the least. Their sick and tired of politicians making promises they have no intention of keeping. Sick and tired of career politicians who've never had a real job, telling those who work and struggle every day to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads, that they have to pay more and more and more in taxes to support people who can't even to bothered to get a high school diploma or who come here in breach of our laws and depress the wages that they can earn.

The establishment of neither the Republican or Democrat party has the faintest clue of any of this. Even if they do the sure aren't going to publicly acknowledge it. And that is why the Donald Trump story is far from over.

It's called a paradigm shift and that is the last thing the establishment wants, something that makes people think for themselves and act on their pent up frustrations. That's why all the foolish little "gotcha" games are not working with Trump or his supporters. They've seen them all before and they are rejecting them as just another part of a political system they have come to have nothing but contempt for. Its a contempt that has been growing for years. Unfortunately for the elites, now they have a vehicle through which to vent their frustration and anger, and his name is Donald Trump.

I think that is the state of play now. Ever the optimist I but I am at the point where I just do not care if the GOP sinks beneath the waves and a Sanders, Biden, O'Malley, or Rodham presidency results. The GOP is clearly not any kind of an obstacle to the leftist lunacy of Obama and the fools in the Democrat Party and clearly Republican Senates have required zero by way of fidelity to the Constitution of nominees to the Supreme Court. So if it's possible to kill off the Republican Party, that's what I want to do if they try to game the nomination now and ditch Trump and grease the rails for El Jebo or Carly the Clueless (Islam, amnesty, outrageous pay packages).

I will stick with Trump no matter what and if the GOP is wise it will not get stupid about his candidacy, though they seemed to be planning just such a course of action.

The paradigm shift is occurring as we speak. At GoV there is an extract from an article about debt that says it took 125 years for the U.S. to accumulate $1 billion in debt. From 1916 to 2015, debt increased by $17,999,000,000. It was $4.2 trillion in 1993. Has any politician in ANY party shown any alarm over this let alone even pointed it out? Trump spoke the unspeakable on immigration, which is of equal danger. The alarming thing as that is only ONE of the issues we're facing and a lot of people are aware of the gravity of our problems and of the willful blindness of the politicians.
