I kinda wish Parties here had the same power parties have in other countries where they have the power to stop them from running under their party banner.


But in the meanwhile he should be stripped of all his committee assignments and then primaried in 2020 and if that doesnt work a Republican should run as an independent to make sure he loses

Well, Donald Trump is “like King,” and he’s exactly who Republicans want. So...

same party base nominated Romney and McCain.

Also the media is to blame for Trump as much as the base is. They promoted him non stop gave him all that free media and in today world thats a huge reason why people win

Mitt Romney practically got down on his knees to thank Trump for his endorsement in 2012.

He also ran one of the most virulently anti-immigrant campaigns as of that date - lest we forget his vow to make the Hispanics "self-deport."


Ugh that comment was taken completely out of context

He clearly stated what that meant was that he would cut of government benefits from illegal immigrants and enforce e verify so they don’t get jobs either . That proposal is not only responable it’s also completely correct.


Also on legal immigration he proposed this :

Attract More Highly Skilled Immigrants:

·         High-skill immigrants start companies, create jobs, and drive innovation at an especially high rate. The United States is also projected to face a shortage of 230,000 science and technology workers by 2018.  At the same time, we have set the caps on high-skill visas so low that, for some countries, an entire year’s quota has been filled in an hour.  Mitt Romney will ask Congress to raise the caps on visas for highly skilled immigrants.
·         Many country caps—or limits on immigrants from specific countries—are so low, that America is losing some of the best and brightest to our international competitors.  Mitt Romney will work with Congress to raise the country caps.
·         America should keep the best and the brightest here in the United States.  Every foreign student who obtains an advanced degree in math, science, or engineering at a U.S. university should be granted permanent residency.



The liberal media parroted the Obama campaign and called him anti immigrant which was totally false . He was very pro legal immigrant especially high skilled ones . Yes he was tough on illegal immigration but that doesn’t make someone anti immigrant

Trump offered me what I wanted in a candidate, issue-wise.  On immigration, on foreign policy, on trade, I agreed with him.  I didn't need to see media over and over.  And I agreed that he represented a needed departure from the neocons.

If I made a mistake in voting for Trump, that's on me.  In the same manner, if I made a mistake on voting for Bill Clinton (twice), that's on me as well.



You follow politics far more than the average person does though so that’s different.

The average voter unfortunately is far more influenced by media coverage than you and I are .

Stop pretending your party likes "high-skilled" immigrants.

Look at what Republicans do to high-skilled immigrants who try to join their party:

Muslim vice-chair of Texas county GOP survives effort to oust him over his religion

Shifting our immigration policy to more high-skilled immigrants is just going to mean more South Asians and East Asians. Your party doesn't like them either.


Guess what the result of the vote was to expel the gu . Yah I thought so



Also I mentioned the high skill portion to counter the claim Romney was anti immigrant.
The fact is he is anti illegal immigrant and pro legal immigrant and if anyone believes that means someone is anti immigrant than guess what , than that person believes illegals should get Better treatment than legal immigrats and that is an insult to people who went through the legal process

"Our party went so far as to hold a formal vote on whether or not to throw someone out of the party for being Muslim. But only 26% of the people voted to do so! Take THAT libtards!"

Your party continues to operate under the delusion that if we had "merit-based" immigration we'd have this flood of white Norwegians and Germans banging down the doors to come live here.

Does Melania Trump doing illegal modeling work on her visa back in the '90s fall under your category of illegals getting better treatment?



First of all I was clearly clearly talking about Mitt Romney in the post and responding to your post about Romney’s so called anti immigrant campaign


Second of all that means 74% voted not to expel

If Tim Scott had any brains in his head he'd be a Democrat. Steve King/Trumpian racial politics will become the new norm. As America becomes less white, the Republican Party will have to win a bigger share of the white vote to stay relevant. That means they'll become more extreme, more racist, and more openly and overtly expressing white supremacist views.

If a Republican had something about a Democrat you would have been all over them

The Democratic Party doesn't believe in the things he believes in, free enterprise, respect of U.S. soldiers with better pay, etc.
This statement is 100% false.


the Democratic Party is moving in the direction of sociaism , while he is a solid Reaganite.


The fact is there needs to be a third party and in my opinion they should start with the goal of denying either party a majority in the house.
