When it comes down to it, the 'someone else's fault' mentality of Donald Trump doesn't stop with 'illegal immigrants' and walls.

Whether it's moving on to the next minority group, or seeking expanded authority to 'fix' the nation's problems by tossing 200 years of jurisprudence into the chipper-shredder, there will always be another 'enemy'.

"It’s no wonder that the nativists are feeling inspired, the bigots emboldened. The white supremacist David Duke is running for the Senate. Stephen Bannon, Breitbart’s chief purveyor of conspiracy theories and anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant venom, is the natural ally of a candidate who hints that President Obama is a secret Muslim and who insists that Muslims in New Jersey danced by the thousands as the towers fell on 9/11."
The message of hatred and paranoia that is inciting millions of voters will outlast the messenger.

Be Patient - Election is not very far so the results will be what people decide. Do what you think is right and let the rest filter out in time to do good.

The Trump family is such a farce.

"The IRS has said individuals are not prohibited from sharing tax information while being audited. There is precedent for doing so: President Richard Nixon released his tax returns during an audit. Moreover, there is nothing stopping Trump from releasing previous returns for years not currently under audit.

A growing number of Trump supporters have also called on the GOP nominee to release his tax returns. Roger Stone, a longtime Republican political operative and current Trump ally, on Monday called on the businessman to release his returns “immediately.” And in a New York Times op-ed earlier this month, Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.) warned his continued ability to support Trump will “in part be driven by whether Mr. Trump keeps his word that he will release his tax records.”
"You learn a lot more when you look at a person’s assets. You know how many hotels we have around the world?" Eric Trump said.

The Republican nominee is staging a crisis of electoral legitimacy that is not just ludicrous, but dangerous.

As for scrutinizing polls, let international bodies do the scrutinizing like they do in other countries. And why is it the GOP lead states that don't have paper trails for voting machines?

Observers say the Republican nominee’s warnings of voter fraud in Pennsylvania belie his real target: predominately black precincts like those in Philadelphia that traditionally vote for Democrats.

Across the country, state-level campaigns fight the influence of big money and gerrymandered congressional districts.

Story

Love learning new things.
Introduction
Dad, Consultant, Cornellian, traditional liberal (it's about free markets, free trade and free speech), avid reader and film buff, youth soccer, basketball, little league coach, tech geek, policy wonk, historian, SF lover, sports fan and even more which at some point I'll get to. I truly enjoy open, tolerant, frank yet respectful exchanges. Love learning new things.

I love to share all kinds of posts and have respectful, intelligent debates and conversations. While many posts will be related to politics or issues of personal liberty and freedom, you'll also find a fair number of other things given my wide range of, at times, eclectic interest. The main thing is to be respectful and have fun. Also, don't be afraid to moderate the comment threads on your own posts (I'm not). If people can't be polite and civil, don't be afraid to block them. Being open to conflicting and different ideas does not mean you have to accept rudeness.

Grew up back East in NYC, engineer and ROTC in college, though now live on the West Coast and have lived and traveled all over the world as a kid and an adult (if i can just get to Antarctica, I can nail down every continent). Member, Pacific Council on International Policy.
