    Fuck Limbaugh...He's simply jumping on a Gravy Train so he can write a book about how he helped Trump win.

    I consider myself a Fiscal Conservative and would never vote Democrat so Republicans are all I got. It would be nice to have a true Conservative running but they would never win.

    Most people refuse to admit that the Federal has gotten to large and to powerful.

    My problem is that I'm not that thrilled with ANY of the current political parties or how the whole political situation has become so partisan.

    If anything, I consider myself to be a Constitutionalist. I believe that is the law of the land and was written in an amazingly clear and unambiguous manner. We need to elect official who are responsible to the PEOPLE.

    Thus, while I disagree with some of his methods and words, I find myself with no option but to vote for The Donald.

    I simply cannot call my vote as of yet. I see this race boiling down to the lesser of evils. The term you use, "Constitutionalist" is the base of my thinking also. Having said that, I often wonder what the Founding Fathers would take issue with in this day and age if they were able to comment on the Constitution. What, if anything would they see as needed change. Remember, the majority supported the change from a Confederated form of government to a Federal system and the resulting central power as opposed to States being the power. And of course, history has shown that States Rights have been eroded and nullified. Who am I to trust? Trump is a man of many colors. Cruz and Rubio are cut from government cloth. None of the rest, with the exception of perhaps Kasich, show any real promise. And I am concerned Trump may become a liability after such as Angela Merkel. After 8 years of losing with Obama, we cannot hardly have another 4/8 years of blundermanship. A "dupe" president we can survive, but we need to consider what will his Cabinet look like? What will Trump bring with him? He is an unknown with a big mouth and ego plus a sackful of money. He is also a deal breaker when things do not go his way. Vote I will, that is not in question, but rather, how is the question. "Read my lips, no new taxes" lingers in my mind.
