People like you are a rarity, IMO. Most of the Republicans who are currently angry with the "Trump Wing" will eventually transfer their anger to Biden if he wrecks the economy.

I left the GOP shortly after college in 2007, currently NPA, but I don’t worry about the economy.

He said the ONLY way to contribute to electing America First Republicans is by contributing to his PAC. 

That is a problem that will become a much bigger story down the road. 

Going to be some down ballot candidates that won't get normal funds they can expect from the GOP mothership because of this.  

Yeah, he’s going to eat up a whole bunch of the donation base.

He's got the 2024 nomination wrapped up if he wants it. Whether he can win will largely be based on what happens to the economy in the next 4 years, IMO.

Do you think that applies if he’s under indictment (but not yet convicted)?

Trump's potential legal issues would only make his candidacy stronger, IMO. After watching the partisan Justice Department go after all those patriotic Trump supporters while totally ignoring the crimes of BLM, Republicans will eagerly vote for the man who promises to drain the swamp (again).

Steps to ensure honest and fair elections. 

1- one election day. 

2 - vote by mail for only legitimate reasons 

3 - voter ID

4 - universal signature matching 

5 - verify citizenship for all votes

6 - chain of custody

:yes:

 

We had a free and fair election.  He lost.

Patriotic supporters?  Storming the capitol is not a sign of patriotism.  Beating an officer with a flag while chanting USA is not patriotism.

The last 4 years proved he wasn’t interested in draining the swamp, but filling it with worse people.  And nobody ignored “crimes of BLM”.

Who’s Cooper?

You live in a state where there has been the practical equivalent of mail-in voting since 2004 and complete mail in voting since 2011.

Our Secretary of State, a Republican, has repeatedly stated that our elections are secure and fair.  Please explain how Washington State elections have not been honest and fair.  If you have evidence of any election fraud relating to Washington’s mail-in voting, can you please provide links to it?

That might actually help him get more donations by showing what a martyr he has become.

We can't make it better?  Or is that only when you want to cry about voter fraud or people that can't follow the rules and don't end up voting?

The election we just had was the most secure in our history, and Trump whined and complained that the opposite was true, despite dozens of sources basically proving he was a liar. If we can make them more secure, sure, but the GOP is not on any sort of high ground for this.

Just look at the vote totals.  No way a popular incumbent president can get steamrolled like that.  That is proof of fraud.

Right. Or you can just listen to the speech. Every proposal was about limiting voting in Detroit, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and his concern about supposed illegal immigrant voting and asking for proof of citizenship is a means of harassing Latinos.

Imagine thinking you have a “deep bench” when the number one guy lost you the executive and legislative branches of government, lost the popular vote by 7 million and you want to run him again.  

Oh, and the second guy is Ron DeSantis.  Lmao.  

Yes, first time since Herbert Hoover any President’s term saw their party experience  the loss of the House, the White House and the Senate in just 4 years. The over used phrase “ definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result” is in play here.

If you listened carefully to Trump, he doesn’t want a more secure election. He wants a more white and less black and brown election. 

This wasn’t posted in good faith

GA is trying to limit/prevent Subway early voting because black churches organize post church voting.

suppression pure and simple

Wouldn't that be Chick Fil A voting, especially in Georgia?

 

Sorry, couldn’t resist.

He posted links from The Who’s who of fake news.  WaPo, NYT.   I am not giving them any clicks.  

It was not the whos who of fake news.  He didn’t post GatewayPundit or PJMedia, or Breitbart.

Also, tim didn’t post those links but gave other examples

Can you give me a list of non-fake news sources?  Or do you view anything that's not Fox, Brietbart, Newsmax, etc., as fake news?

The economy could completely implode to the point we’re back to bartering for goods and services, and I would still never vote for any of these GOP candidates.

The only thing I got out this TPAC convention was to compile a list of GOP attendees I would never vote for.

Same here, never voting for DeSantis, Scott, Rubio, or a GOP representative now.

Wow. She changed key three times. 

I’m expecting to hear that she’s special needs or that she saved someone and is a hero, and then I’ll feel incredibly bad. Or maybe she’s just related to one of the organizers.

That probably happens, I have nowhere to go though.

I clicked on NPR. It was from months ago and not related to yesterday’s speech which Tim insinuated was racist.

Please give us a list of news sources with no agenda that you trust. TIA

I scan a lot of articles from news feeds.  I will look at the source. Normally, I would click on a Reuters, AP, Fox, USA Today, WSJ or BBC.  I would not even trust CNN, MSNBC, WaPo, or NYT for reporting on a natural disaster or breaking news. I would have to verify. They fall well below TMZ in my matrix

Local news sites and newspaper I lean on heavily for information

Sports. I only trust ESPN site for box scores. I use various fantasy sites for news.  Barstool is great.  Outkick is up and coming.  
 

Regarding politics Breitbart has become my morning paper.  I drill down on subjects from there to get more unfiltered political information with other sources of enlightenment.  Breitbart is excellent, I highly recommend.
