"Full House" actress Lori Loughlin, known as Aunt Becky on the TV
show, was taken into custody by the FBI in Los Angeles Wednesday
morning as part of the investigation into a massive college
These right wing morons are dropping like flies.
So the libs who didn't care that Warren lied on her application now
care that someone else did something wrong.
It's not that they don't care. It's that they don't believe you.
Maybe it's because unsubstantiated smears from known liars aren't
given the same weight as claims that are backed up by facts.
I'm sure you've been the victim of that many, MANY times!
Rhino, when do I say things I *can't* back up with citations of fact?
Go ahead... go and find something I stated as fact that you don't think
I can back up.
When you claimed I was a member of the Republican Party.
When's the last time you voted for a Democrat?
When's the last time you didn't take a cheap shot, Johnston?
When did it occur that political party affiliation is no longer self
determined? I didn't get the memo.
While my state never had party registration under state law as many
other states do, I can declare my party affiliation because of primary
participation and that I've mentioned that years ago, I used to make a
poor living doing political work. I've also made campaign and party
contributions. When I was very young, I was an elected committeeman.
If BTR1701 isn't a registered party member, doesn't do political work
(not to mention that he's Hatched), doesn't make contributions, etc.,
he can say truthfully that he's just not a party member regardless of
whether Johnston defines "Republican Party membership" as someone who
hasn't voted for a Democratic candidate recently.
Perhaps a better word might be aligned. As in sharing many of the
philosophies and goals of a particular party while not actively part
of said party.
I know what you're getting at but it doesn't work that way for a voter
who doesn't consider himself to be a Party member. Political parties are
always coalitions. They don't have philisophies and goals, and party
platforms tend to be embarassments that no candidate ever runs on.
An unaligned voter should be influenced directly by the candidate's
background and issues he raises in his current campaign. There's no
reason to look toward a political party platform.
What's a conservative voter to do who just can't stand Donald Trump?
There isn't a lot of room in the Republican Party for him at the moment,
and Trump supporters will attempt boot out incumbants in the primary
they don't consider to be allied with the president on enough issues.
Some conservatives have chosen to run as Democrats. There are a number
of them in Congress and state legislatures. If you're running in an area
in which Donald Trump is very popular among Republican primary voters,
you won't get nominated if you oppose Trump.
In a situation like that, a conservative voter might vote for the
Or if there's a Libertarian Party candidate who isn't a clown, he might
vote that way.
Johnston was just be obnoxious, as per usual.
