I once had 22 signs in my yard, at least one for each GOP candidate, with a few duplicates for the ones I liked more.

Heaviest snow in Nashville since 1983 - 6-8" in Davidson Co., even more to the north.

3. Interest in this thread
I have been spending quite some time on updating this thread and I like to do so, but I seem to be almost the only one posting here. To me, this begs the question: do people actually read this? If you do and simply don't post, it's okay, and I very much understand that because I am a lurker in so many threads. However, I like to think I'm not writing these posts just for myself, and lately I have been thinking that maybe I am. In that case, I will update this less often. Let me know.

I read it - thank you for all of your work!
9  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Paul says he will now prioritize stopping Trump on: January 16, 2016, 10:56:26 am
FF, but then why doesn't he have the balls to say he won't support Trump if he is the nominee. Obviously he wouldn't be out campaigning for him, but if Trump is as bad as he says he is, which he is, then he should have the balls to say no I do not support him. Why not back Gary Johnson?

Because he has no balls. He's cut them off to run for President.

There are problems within the party that occur for him, his staff, and his supporters if he endorses another party's candidate for president.  Not to say that he won't do it, but those of us who have very serious problems with a Trump nomination are feeling our way through these issues.
10  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Jeb wants to abolish food stamps on: January 09, 2016, 12:34:17 am
The headline is a bit misleading - or at least gives the wrong impression.  He isn't eliminating assistance programs for the poor, just block granting it to states to come up with something more effective.

We need a one state solution with Israel being the only state and expand it to Biblical Borders.
And include Sinai in it

Wouldn't that create a Palestinian-majority country that overwhelms the concept of a Jewish state?

Very Doubtful.  Some will vote Libertarian, some will skip the top of the ballot, a few will support Hillary publicly, some will vote for Hillary privately, and the rest will vote for Trump while hoping he doesn't actually win.

41% of Tea Party supporters agreed "there should be laws passed that restrict the ability of Muslims to practice their religion".  Nice

I was heartened that the number wasn't higher.  I've been to several tea party meetings where they talked about Muslims...scary stuff.

21  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: What does Kasich think he's doing? on: November 29, 2015, 03:02:14 pm
If I were advising him politically, I'm not sure I would advise him to do what he is doing.  

However, as someone who cares about the country and the party, I'm behind him 100%.  I've never been more proud of a Presidential candidate until I saw Kasich's latest anti-Trump ad.  In a sense he's rallying his base.  Sure his base is like 6 people, but its nice for us to be fired up too Smiley

I think it is high time that moderates (formerly known as conservatives in a less crazy era) stop cowering in fear and start FIGHTING BACK.
