As I’ve said repeatedly:

I would vote for Donald Trump over the Democrat nominee in the event he is the GOP candidate. Because I would vote for a Sesame Street character over the Democrat. But remember: you will get what you pay for.


  • Stephen Henry says:

    I am a Cruz supporter, as such, I agree with the conclusions of these comparisons. Yet, I take issue with this line of thinking, “In the end, if Trump gets the Republican nomination, I’ll vote for him.” This is a common statement by other conservatives out there, aside from this author, and Mark Levin, probably being the highest profile. I of course, will represent the lowest profile, just an American out in the political wilderness, who will never vote for Trump. How could I, when everything on that comparison list is very, very important to my freedoms? So, the counter argument, is Hillary (or any Democrat) will be worse, which is true. Yet, political poison in small doses (Trump) ultimately is the same as large doses (Hillary) in effectively destroying this country. It is time for conservatives collectively to resist and not follow our esteemed political mentor, Sarah Palin off the rational cliff, or any other respectful “conservative.” Slanderously, those of this opinion, are so-called “purists” but, not so, because as a conservative, it would be perfectly natural to vote for Paul, Rubio, and Carson. Yet, if Trump wins the nomination (very unlikely), count me out.

  • Trevor says:

    Many feel the same way Stephen. Trump’s disapproval ratings are far higher than Cruz’s..Anther reason we have to make sure that Cruz is the nominee.

  • halodoc says:

    Trump is also supposedly isolating the media during his stumps. There is a TIMES piece posted at Yahoo on Jan 29, titled, “Donald Trump Doesn’t Win in Cheap Seats at Rally”. There is also a piece about CNN anchor talking about ‘journalists’ begin afraid to criticize him because they do you him coming after them. Instapundit carried that one a few days ago. Then there is ABC who during their debate caved in cutting ties with that New Hampshire guy from their newspaper The Union because they ran a piece he didn’t like and Trump blackmailed them he would come to their debate.

    Then add on to the bankruptcy part, “Trump fallfor internet hoax, draws ire of Saudi Prince” at Legal Insurrection, where Trump tweeter vomited at 7:29AM, Jan 28 a retweet of a photoshopped pic of Prince Alwaleed with his sister and [Mygan] Kelly with that false leftist meme about Alwaleed being ‘co-owner’ of FoxNews.

    Prince Alwaleed responds from @Alwaleed_Talal at 1:24PM, Jan 28: “Trump: You base your statements on photoshopped pics? I bailed you out twice;a 3rd time, maybe?”

    So, basically, Trump is beholden to the Sauds. Nice. When people stand for nothing, they’ll fall for anything. And just in case anyone wants to go crazy trying to defend what is obviously rank stupidity, it’s 6.6% shares of 21 Century Fox, the parent company of FoxNews, NOT FoxNews, and it’s the Prince’s investment firm, not him personally, and since he’s foreigner he has no stock voting rights.

  • Carollyn says:

    Information from 2000 is NOT updated!!! Trump is now anti-abortion for example. Get with it, use 2015 updates throughout the list, thank you.

    • Doug says:

      Carollyn, Trump’s 2015 views? How about his freaking swing left from last week? What will his views be as he moves on from securing the nomination and tries to smooze the left? If he has anything resembling a core, it is left leaning.

      we are screwed as a nation
