Was planning to watch it, but I already have an idea what kind of response they'll give for solutions to America's problems.

On a side note, free tacos! Courtesy of Donald Trump

Education reform is actually one area where I'm further to the right than the candidates seem to be.

I don't understand why Saul Alinsky is so vilified by GOP, though.

I find this to be more insulting than his comments, LOL!

Do you trust Trump's claims to have become more conservative on gun control? Or you think he's really a moderate (or really doesn't care)?

An article on Trump I found interesting, by the Dilbert series creator:

I don't like him, but I do see a certain brilliance in how he's running his campaign. No other Republican contender could get away with openly talking about a possible run as an Independent.

I don't know if Trump was ever even really considering it, since I don't see how he could beat both the Democrat and the mainstream Republican candidates. But now that he has said he will back the Republican candidate, he can get a boost in the polls and media attention. He gets tons of attention over what seem to be really non-events.

He acts as if he already is the Republican candidate - which unsettles the other Republican contenders.

The contract he signed just forced the RNC to make him the candidate for the GOP. If they don't Trump will still run as an Ind. He doesn't care about the ramifications, they'll do nothing to him.

I don't remember whether I've said this before or not but I think Trump is running so he can get attention. His public attacks against media and fellow politicians would be interesting to watch if he were to become President. I'm sure his Press Secretary would have a field day trying to protect the Administration from heat coming from the press. I feel like anybody with no law experience would not make a good president and especially anyone who hasn't had any experience in politics before, This ain't the local little league where everyone is welcome. This is the big leagues.
