Are there conservative trolls on Huffinton Post?
Why waste ammunition on a candidate that will not be a factor in the campaign? I wish people (friends and pundits) would quit telling me who they won't vote for. I'm intelligent enough to know that there are pros and cons to every candidate considering the fray. I pledge to support the winner (survivor) against the Democrats. It won't be Santorum.

If one believes that criminalization of speech and thought can prevent violence, then I accept that he or she has the right to believe and espouse it. If one believes that "One man's terrorist is another's freedom fighter", then he has the right to believe, and espouse it. If someone believes that reason with our Islamic State enemies is impossible, therefore the only solution is annihilation, then he has the right to believe and espouse it. All of these beliefs make me uncomfortable. I hold that no man has a right to be comforted by the beliefs and speech of any other man. No man has a right to impose those beliefs by violence. Many have chosen to do so. Some have been successful. History judges whether rights were defended or destroyed by the violence. But, if we kill you in your violent attempts to impose your beliefs on me, don't expect me to mourn you. History may forgive the winners, since they write the history books. But, it judges the losers quite harshly.

News Flash. You are eligible to vote once in your state primary for your favorite R. After that, R's need to get on board with whoever wins. If there is a "singular" Tea Party (and there isn't) they should get behind their singular electable candidate. They won't. The right wing will splinter along libertarian and social issues among 3 or 4 candidates, while the Establishment picks up the nomination. Then too many will take their toys and go home, and then complain about Hilary, or worse, Warren for the next 8 years, or until there really isn't an America to complain about any longer.
All I hear is who people won't vote for. I will vote for the most electable Republican Candidate. If Jeb Bush wins a majority of Republican Primaries, then, I'm sorry Phyllis, but you lost again. I'm sick and tired of "grassroots" conservatives that wouldn't vote for Romney because he was Mormon, or because he was too moderate, or because his hair was too perfect, complain about Obama. Here is some Common Core Math for you: AR>AD (Any Republican is better than Any Democrat in the White House.
The One Child policy is morally and socially repugnant. I'm quite surprised that a firm majority of responders here take a non-chalant attitude toward it. We can love America without hating the world.
When the police in your town takes your guns and then fires rubber bullets into your protest crowd, then, perhaps, we will understand a little better. Police need to be professional and restrained. Perhaps the officer was. We don't know. I'm completely open minded to the truth on this. If the officer is charged, then jurors can give him the benefit of reasonable doubt. If he is not charged, then I would expect the good people of Ferguson to continue to demand a rational explanation for the benefit of the officer involved. Conservatives are right to be skeptical of the increasingly militarized police force. I have no part with conservatives that are only skeptical of white on white police violence.
Can I just disagree? Any time I hear "You are not a true conservative if", I'm immediately skeptical. I guess now I know that at least some conservatives consider AE to be bunk. My question is, would they vote for an Obama that agreed with them, or a Reagan that didn't?
I love Ann Coulter. I love this column. But, I still love soccer.
There are no proposed Common Core Standards for Social Studies. What New York does about Social Studies is up to New York. There are better arguments against Common Core than this.
