I find Trump to be an appealing candidate because he presents us with a chance to screw the establishment GOP procedure, which essentially amounts to claiming to stand for the issues its constituents support, then giving us continued big government garbage. Basically nothing Trump says on the su...View Topic - Replies (4)
