When is going to push on the issues? Never. Right. .
supporters who claim they are conservative seem blissfully unaware that Trump is not. He's a populist.
we’re having our best fundraising day since winning Wisconsin. Help us keep it up
Yes, a debate would be great. Would love to learn about plans -"believe me" doesn't cut it.
So when gets about 60% of the vote and about 95% of delegates, the system is NOT rigged? Only rigged when he loses, right?
If we lose freedom here, there is no place to escape to. This is the last stand on earth - Ronald Reagan
How about Sybil Ludington? Only 16, riding the dangerous midnight highways for 40 miles warning about the British.
Keeping with ideas for $5 and $10: Add Crispus Attucks, General Von Steuben and Sybil Ludington to the $1 with Washington still on the front
This is why the leftists of New York like him.
Two liberal Democrats win the New York primaries tonight.
Trump is a big government populist. He's not a conservative.

Absolutely. Otherwise we go the way of Europe. I am seeing it first hand while in Europe.
Good. I am in Europe now - situation untenable. Feel bad for migrants but a solution has to be found.

Guess you do learn something new every day! Prior to this, I had never heard of Sybil Ludington. Or Claudette Colvin.
A little known hero of the American Revolutionary War, 16-year-old Sybil Ludington.
The Last Monday In May Is what we consider Memorial Day This is for those who died while serving. As we stand on the shoulders of the men and women who fought to the death for the honor, liberties, and freedoms we experience today and I know that not only do women still struggle with this, but women- even those that have fought and died for the same honor- have yet to be recognized. Sybil Ludington has yet to be written into our history books in the order at which she displayed importance such as Paul Revere that is being taught. I am extremely happy to have been rid of fake friends who are males and pretend as if they are platonic when they want to manipulate more than just myself but friends as well. The same goes for married men who make ridiculous comments. This is a free country for all, not just men who get to pick and choose how the world turns.
Sybil Ludington - The Female Paul Revere, is the story of Sybil Ludington, a 16 year old as who courageously rode 40 miles to save New York during the Revolutionary War.
Thx to all who played! You can read more about the young American Patriot, Sybil Ludington here:

Revolutionary War Day of Note: While Evacuation Day is destined to supplant Thanksgiving as a national holiday it is less probable that Sybil Ludington, who—on this date in 1777 having recently turned 16—rode 40 miles on horseback to muster the locals after the British attacked Danbury, will overtake Paul Revere in the Nation's imagination. On a tenuously related note the NRA awards the Sybil Ludington Women's Freedom Award annually. Among the winners? You tell me.
