    Lindsey Graham Drops Out

    WASHINGTON — Presidential candidate Lindsey Graham, a veteran and member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, has dropped out of the race for the Republican nomination, he announced Monday. "I'm suspending my campaign but never my commitment to achieving security through strength for the American people," Graham, R-S.C., said in a video message Monday morning.

    It shouldn't have taken this long. It shouldn't be for most of the ones who are still left.

    The real question is where will Miss Lindsey's zero percent go?

    Obviously these neoclowns are only still running to try and delay the inevitable of Donald Trump getting a majority of the vote.

    RM, you don't know much about math. Say that The Trump has 30%. Add the 0. Now he has 300%.

    I guess we're not going to know what's really going to happen until Iowa and New Hampshire, but... whether Trump gets the nomination or not, the GOP has some serious soul-searching to do. Nixon, Ford, and Reagan created the GOP that allowed Trump to compete in it.

    They're going to have to make the GOP a party where people like Trump are not welcome, while still remaining conservative. You do this by dropping the Southern Strategy, and going back to the same platform started by Taft after he parted ways with Teddy Roosevelt. Granted, the GOP has some bad presidents that pushed the country to the brink after Taft (Harding, Coolidge, Hoover); but Eisenhower made that platform work, and pretty damn good.

    That's where the GOP needs to look back to.

    Trump is taking the party back.

    He's very similar to Taft on trade and Ike on immigration.

    The problem with the GOP is not the southern strategy (which they haven't following)

    The problem is that starting with Bush I they sold out the base to Israel first neocon interests.

    Bullshit. Nixon started a dynasty, and every Republican president since him is a part of that dynasty. If GOP candidate, other than Bush, gets elected; then the dynasty will be broken. But considering that the appeal to racism has won the South (and has continued to do so, even more) since the Southern Strategy began, to claim that the GOP isn't using it is false.

    Lee Atwater explained how it works. Hell, people talking about "handouts" and "free shit" is all a part of it.

    They pose as conservatives in the primary, run as moderates in the general election and then govern as liberals.

    30 years of flooding the country with illegals to suppress wages, offshoring jobs and fighting Israels wars have caught up to them.

    And the Clinton's are no different.

    Now the delegates will either support Trump or the GOP will cease to exist. Either of which would better than nominating another neocon puppet.

    As much as I can't stand obama I admit he probably delayed world war 3 by preventing a McCain or Clinton presidency
