In a nutshell

Wear their scorn with pride.
Let’s get a black Republican in office that’s much like Trump…. Let’s get him to bridge the gap in race. Let’s hammer the economy which will be in shambles by election time. I run a small business that caters to the black community and most of the blacks I speak with are sick of how the race card is being used. Not everyone is a damn sheep like many on here believe.

Yea,the shutdown of counting ballots in all four battleground states was just a coincidence.
I won’t argue with you about it. The fact is it was too close. It shouldn’t have been close and wouldn’t have been if Trump was able to use some measure of restraint during his term. His arrogance was his biggest strength AND his biggest downfall. Learn and move on. Hopefully the next Republican will learn… And you can better believe the next President will be Republican. The economy will see to that.

President Trump put America first energy independent, closed the border, didn’t get us into any wars and a booming economy.
Look what they did to him for it.

Enjoy your faith in the American people, I have faith in less than half of them and that amount drops every day.

That’s not going to happen.
Blacks will still vote 90% for the white democrat don’t kid yourself.
After the Great White One burns them with his lies … I’m not so sure. Many blacks are waking up. Larry Elder has started a movement.
The one thing I could see happening is Hispanics bailing on the democrat freak show. I really can’t see them going along with the democrats nonsense for ever.
I definitely see that happening….

Jen Psaki (Baghdad Bob) has become Squealer the SpokesPig from Orwell's Animal Farm.

In the book, Snowball led the Rebellion, was wounded, and was given medals of bravery. Then, as the weeks went by- The Great Leader Napoleon the Pig sent out Squealer the SpokesPig to change the narrative. Animals that had witnessed Snowball's leadership were told that their eyes deceived them. Over weeks, it eventually became that Snowball was a traitorous agent for the farmers, and Snowball was forced to run for his life. Horses that testified for Snowball were sold to farmers or sent to the glue factory. Animals either became believers in Napoleon, or were 'disappeared'.

I used to believe this happened in China, Russia, or Banana Republics. Now, I see it here, Daily..

You'll be long gone before another like Trump comes along.....and by then the UN and multinational corporate investors will totally destroyed our sovereignty.

We might have to witness the 6th Trump? Biden is making deals with Iran, who is, actively testing missiles capable of EMP range ballistics. Iran is working with N Korea and Russia to gain nuclear warheads. Biden is our weakest President yet. Weaker than Buchanan, Carter, or Obama. The World gives him no respect, and the World sees our Military as more Woke than Fight-Worthy. Right now- the Chinese Navy would whoop our Navy's Ass. Believe me that pains me even thinking such....

Throw in Facebook, Twitter and the rest of the propagandists these are some frightening times.

Tim Scott won't win the GOP Nomination. In a few years- this Lt Gov Mark Robinson might- but itll be gone before he gets the chance. This guy DOES deserve the chance tho!!!


I'm starting to think YouTube decided he's too honest!!!! Google Mark Robinson- he's worth the listen!!!!!!

Trump is America First.
Under 55 years old saw Sony and Panasonic taje over boom boxes and kids actually started liking Datsuns. The 280ZX........before that NOBODY liked Japanese stuff. That was junior high to high school seniors.
Older people started making money or saving money on imports and got addicted to selling us put. Justified the sellout with 50billlion reasons. Politicians and media have all been in the game since. I doubt if anybody graduating after 1990 has any clue of when we made everything right here.

So good luck with an America First President after Trump. They don't even know what it means.

American cars manufacturers were low hanging fruit, the 280zx started every time, wasn't overpriced, and didn't suffer from Monday or Friday car syndrome.

The best thing that you can do is look at how willfully the automakers went along with the epa and safety rules. They never cared about what you want, as long as they kept a monopoly on the market.

Europe and Asia had similar regulations, but our rusty underperforming crap was no match. They stuck their head in the sand. It cost a lot of jobs.

American manufacturers rubbed your nose in it to boot.

I too remember the Japanese Cars.

Father bought a Datsun 1200 out of a dealership that was in a rented space that used to be totally something else in the 50's We had a old Ford Falcon then. That got traded in.

The Datsun was austere. If you opened the hood, all you had was radiator, battery, coilpack, alternator (They just stopped making generators and regulators to go into the engines of those older cars) and just the necessary air intake and ignition wiring. I think the ignition system was points based or it could have been a extremely early form of magneto or even what we would call digital today. It takes voltage, steps it up and waits for the distributor shaft to come around and start feeding the four spark plugs.

It has a 4 speed and that's about it. No air conditioning either. Don't need it in those days when we lived without central air. We vented heat in our rowhome by fans moving hot air to the third floor bathroom where it was dumped by it's small steeple. The basement was always 67 no matter the season. And we ran off coal heat then later oil steam heat etc.

That little Datsun took 5.00 gas (I think it was around .50 a gallon at the oil embargo odd even days higher. We put 100,000 miles on it until the frame itself started failing at the welds. Radials were changed every 5000 miles. Battery given a drink regularly in summer. It was a good little car. No trouble. That's why we bought it. The quality.

Part two of cars.

I bought a old 351 ford GT years ago. It required a few thousands of dollars of shop work before passed state inspection believe it or not. Emissions was close. But since it was historical it was irrelevant. That car required a certain amount of body work every winter, required loving care in the shop, fed a diet of brake pads or rotors and a number of other parts that wore out regularly. Required the original radiator to be changed for a special massive 4 core one so that when it's 105 outside and 100% humidity it maintained it's coolant temp of about 185 without trouble at ide or highway.

Fix fix fix fix and upgrade where possible. Nitrogen shocks put in, aluminum alloy wheels put on, larger than stock tires (225/60R 15's same as state police Michelins) were on there and speed rated for 130. Car was capable of 142 provided the temp was 54 degrees plus or minus 5.

Why did I ever sell it? The third winter featured the storm of the Century. Im running on the interstate on top of two feet of slush. The salts etc got into the whole vehicle rotted ALL of the wiring. ALL OF IT. Then went after the floorpans and fenders. POOF rotted. I sold it.

For the costs it would have been way better to have bought say a Taurus or possibly a Corolla GT or something similar. Reliable, same cost retail new and so on. When Escorts etc came out and citations and other truly astounding crappy cars (K Cars in particular. Reliants and others) it was a bad time for years. Embarrasing even dangerous.

Don’t lose faith! We have until the next election. If we can’t take it back …. Then it’s game over.
My faith in this nation's long term survival is gone. We just elected the dumbest, most incompetent, unaccomplished buffoon in history and most of the aholes who put him there aren't even smart enough to acknowledge their mistake. And these commies have only been at the helm for six months and look at the destruction they've already caused. We're effed as a nation.
