We now have Republican candidates who are openly saying that, even if you are born in the USA, you may not have the right to be an USA citizen. Given the prior Supreme Court case history, this means that those of us who are immigrants are even more liable to be declared non-citizens than those who were born here. So, when I look at the Republican statements on the 14th amendment and anchor babies, it pushes me even more toward voting a straight Democratic ticket.

Not too long ago, it seemed like the Grand Old Party was set to become an increasingly welcome place for libertarianism. After years of enthusiastic Ron Paul presidential campaigns, his son Rand, a bit less hardline than his father, was for many people the most exciting candidate of 2016. For hopeful libertarians, the GOP was a pathway to the mainstream, and the success of the Kentucky Senator would determine how ready the party was to embrace the fringe ideology. If I were a libertarian today, I would be seriously questioning that earlier optimism.

While GOP once looked poised to embrace libertarians, the summer of Trump shows it’s charting a different course

HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON:
“Today, the party of Lincoln has become the party of Trump.”

Hillary has called out Donald Trump since his very first dehumanizing and derogatory comments towards immigrants and women. Clinton even defended Megyn Kelly.

Hillary is one of the few people that isn’t afraid to go toe-to-toe with Mr. Trump and call him out for his disgusting comments. He may have bodyguards that kick out journalists in his fantasy Fascist news conference, but I wouldn’t want to mess with the Secret Service :p Hillary will never be intimidated by Mr. Trump. And the way she balances between mocking him and calling out his hate is the perfect way to destroy him politically. I can’t wait for the Clinton machine to kick into high-gear and really hit him where it hurts. This clown needs to go bankrupt a few more companies and make some more products in China.

Mr. Trump inherited his success from his families wealth [200+ million dollars], unlike the Clintons who built their success side-by-side, dating back to their days at Yale Law and Hillary’s work at the Children’s Defense Fund. The Clintons, not Trump, embody the American dream of working your way from the bottom to the top [and they are the only couple that has ever had a chance of reaching the top twice]. Trump was born on third base but thinks he hit a triple.

Watching Hillary troll Mr. Trump is very satisfying, I must admit:

Hillary Clinton defends Planned Parenthood and mocks Donald Trump on women’s issues. Clinton said GOP policies on women “dead wrong in 21st century America” – ridicules them for saying she’s playing the “gender card.”

Hillary doesn’t seem afraid to take on anyone [left-wing, right-wing, Trump, New York Times, Fox News, the media – anyone]. Hillary has taken on Trump since his very first hateful, racist comments towards Hispanics. She understands the realities of the political system [$$$] and wants to change it from within [just as she told #blacklivesmatter – “you change systems”]. She knows the power of the Presidency – she’s seen it up close and personal twice now. She wants it again. And I can’t wait to see what she’ll do for our country and middle-class families if elected as the first female President of the United States.

Oh, and a lot of the media and polls being released about Bernie are by right-wing organizations trying to sew discord among Democrats. Please look at who conducted the polls and the origins of these stories/sources.

For instance, the New York Times recently had to retract several stories about Hillary’s e-mails – the FBI investigation is NOT a criminal investigation and Hillary is NOT the target of the investigation. The possible retroactive classification of materials would have happened regardless of her use of a private server [which was permitted under the law when she was Secretary of State]. Stop spreading right-wing character assassination as fact, please!! You are only doing the GOPs job for them [did you know the GOP even investigated the Clintons Christmas card list in the 1990s?]

18 Real Things Donald Trump Has Actually Said About Women

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly called him out on his sexist behavior during the GOP debate on August 6, reminding him: “You have called women you don’t like ‘fat pigs’, ‘dogs’, ‘slobs’, and ‘disgusting animals.“

Unacceptable: Donald Trump Removes Jorge Ramos From News Conference

As one of Trump’s security detail approached Ramos, the Univision anchor continued to speak, saying, “You cannot deport 11 million people.” Ramos was referring to Trump’s proposal to deport all people in the country illegally before allowing some of them to return. Ramos was later allowed back in.

The GOP Candidates’ Extreme Anti-Immigrant Positions, In One Chart

Donald Trump’s anti-immigrant rhetoric has pushed immigration to the forefront of the Republican primary campaign. Since no candidate besides Sen. Lindsey Graham (SC) supports a pathway to citizenship for the 11 million undocumented immigrants already in the United States, there has been virtually no serious discussion of how to reform the immigration system. Instead, the GOP immigration debate has focused instead on a variety of offensive, unrealistic, and cruel proposals aimed at reducing the number of Latinos living in the U.S.
