Iowa 2016

The Republican president nomination mob has shrunk by three: Huckabee, Santorum and Paul, the only contest is really between Trump, Cruz and Rubio, everyone else is in single digits. Well. not really Rubio…

Cruz/Rubio has more traction as a P/VP couple…leaders are not beer buddies no better than thee, eh, the quirk of equality under the law and peerage of person….

Iowa was Trump’s to loose and he placed second to Cruz – who taps into the same anti-establishment outsider but more credibility into the religion fanaticism.

In the 1990s “Family Values” was the code phrase that meant anti-queer people.

Now, the candidates do not even pretend to be concerned about women and forming families, but raping and men’s rights… as if men have ever not had them.

Who do they think they are? Alexander the Great who spread culture, Julius Caesar who spread bureaucracy or Genghis Kahn  who spread genes while deconstructing civilization.

Role models count and it is curious how the religious embrace Ayn Rand while atheists do not: Greed is only good to a point, then it’s pathological – having more than most or more than most together is not how civilization functions, but how social change starts and ends with Madame La Guillotine.

Ted Cruz, born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father, conducted a sleazy campaign that included disinformation about Ben Carson leaving the race he is remaining an also-ran in, as well as the fraudulent mailers about voter violations.

Voters who want politicians to create religious laws rather than obey the law of the land they seek to assert all over elsewhere.

How did the nation that embodied separation of Church and State have returned to religion to lead them into repeating history?

learn to work and play well with others, it’s the only way we’re gonna get into space: Co-operation.

I think other people might be more compelled towards the idea of the american government, if so many Americans didn’t feel the need to be armed against it, eh?

New Countries Favor Canadian Charter of Rights and ……/24184/

Apr 19, 2012 – (MintPress)-Once a model for emerging democracies worldwide, a new… New countries are more likely to use the Canadian Charter of Rights … not look to the U.S. Constitution if I were drafting a constitution in the year 2012.

the problem is distribution of wealth, not creating it.

As for the Democrats, Iowa was Clinton’s the loose and Sanders closed the gap.



the first poll sets the tone of the race, but it’s the last poll that confirms how it decides somewhere in the middle:  people have a lot to consider as they chose which champion to ride into the election
mostly – how they have campaigned and how poorly they conduct themselves
anyone smart enough to actually run the government is too smart to get involved in anything so sordid.
