If Trump Loses, it Will be all on Him

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh used what I think was his entire program to make a last ditch case for Donald Trump.

He stated that in the past, as the election nears, even leftist pollsters would begin cleaning up their act, to more accurately reflect the reality of elections. I agree with this. I too have said this.

Early on in the general election cycle, liberal polls consistently over sample to make it appear that the democrat is leading, in an attempt to influence voters. As the election closes in, the polls tighten to reflect reality. This is done so that polling companies can maintain a record of accuracy that they can point to later to solicit business.

However, Rush says it isn’t happening this time around  – that polls are still insisting that Hillary is maintaining a lead and will likely win.

Rush says: “My point is I think the polls are still being used as weapons and that’s a departure from my previously stated theories and beliefs. And I finally asked myself, I mean, if we don’t trust the news every day from these people, why would we trust their polls?”

He added that, “the purpose of all of this today in the Drive-By Media is to try to convince you it’s over. The objective is to dampen down Trump support and turnout at the polls. So much of this election has not gone the way the Hillary camp projected or wants it to go.” read more

A Vote for Trump

“The time has come,” the Walrus said, “To talk of many things: Of shoes – and ships and sealing-wax – Of cabbages–and kings – And why the sea is boiling hot – And whether pigs have wings.” (Lewis Carroll)

I’d like to announce that indeed, in 2016, pigs do have wings and can fly. I know this must be so, because I told someone months ago that I would only vote for Donald J. Trump, when pigs fly.

On Tuesday, November 8, 2016, at approximately 0700 EST, the Common Constitutionalist will enter my local polling facility, on the back of a flying pig, and cast my vote for the Trumpster.

To my regular readers and listeners, this will come as a surprise, as I have said repeatedly, that I will no longer vote for someone just to vote against the other candidate – even if the other candidate is the most corrupt individual ever to seek high office – bar none.

Many have said that our choice was a binary one and that I/we must choose the lesser of two evils. Fine, I would reply – but the lesser of two is still evil. There is always a third option and that is none of the above. If Trump wanted my vote he would have to earn it – give me a reason to vote FOR him, other than he is not Hillary. He had not done that. read more

TRUMP HAS THE LEAD

Well, this is certainly a switch and rather unexpected by most, I’d say. The post-debate polls have taken shape, and it seems the Trumpster has wrested the lead from Hillary in more than just one.

As I’ve said before – despite having to stay abreast of these events, I find it physically painful to sit through an entire debate between these two. From what I’ve seen through the three debates, nobody has actually achieved victory – not like Romney did in the first 2012 debate or most of the Reagan performances. It was more like a first and second loser. read more

There are no Issues Other than Trump is a Womanizer

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Who can’t wait for this election to be over? ME!! I’m tired of talking about – tired of writing about it. And the reason is that no one, me included, is actually writing or speaking of any substance – because there is known to report.

It’s all Bullcrap – it’s all scandal. There is no foreign policy – no domestic policy. The closest thing to substance anyone can report are poll results – and most of them are not even substantive. Virtually all of the best known (to the public) polls show Hillary with a gigantic lead. The only polls which show Trump leading are Rasmussen and IBD/TIPP. Interestingly, these two are the only polls which happen to be historically accurate – with IBD/TIPP being the most accurate over the past three presidential election cycles.

In other words, polls have become as scandalous as the stories relating to both flawed candidates.

Will we ever return to a time when elections are, for the most part, about issues and policy? Probably not. It has now become a never-ending game of gotcha. The party who can create or make public a new scandal, regarding the other, closest to the election, will win. This is what we’ve come to. read more

In 2016 – State Elections are of Equal Importance

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version

If we are to believe the polls, it would appear that Hillary Clinton has the 2016 presidential election virtually locked up.

As the election draws closers, polls historically become more accurate. The reason for this is that the companies who conduct polls have in their best interest to not only pick the winner, but to be as close as possible to predicting the margin of victory.

Professional polling companies live and die by polls, so accuracy is key to a good reputation – which leads to elite status amongst pollsters and to many more future contracts.

Early on, pollsters have a lot more leeway to get things wrong and even skew the election to the candidate they prefer. But as time becomes short, their livelihoods depend on getting it right. You will see a shift from polling just “adults,” to polling “registered” and “likely voters.”

Knowing this about polls and barring anything such as a Bradley/Wilder effect, this is Clinton’s election to lose. For those unfamiliar, the above “effect” is a circumstance when those being polled say they are voting for one candidate, due to not wanting to appear racist or sexist, or what they may perceive as peer pressure, but actually cast their ballot for another.

Yes, just saying President Hillary Clinton does lend itself to suicidal thoughts, I know. read more

Podcast – WikiLeaks Proves that the Press is Working for Hillary – Reasons Why the NFL is Losing Audience

Thanks to WikiLeaks, we no longer need to wonder whether the press and the dirty democrats have been in collusion. We now have several smoking guns. By all rights, these findings should disqualify them and Hillary. Of course it won’t. Will these revelations make a different in a couple of weeks? Who knows.

The NFL is losing viewers. Even their marquee games of Sunday and Monday night are way down. Many are wondering why America’s game has taken such a hit this year. I posit a few theories. read more

Lebron James Shouldn’t be Criticizing Anyone

by: the Common Constitutionalist

No Audio Version. After reading, you’ll know why.

Basketball icon and Hillary supporter Lebron James has waded into the political arena. He recently commented on Trump’s disturbing remarks in 2005, and the fact that Trump said it was “locker room talk.”

What is locker room talk to me? It’s not what that guy said,” the Cleveland Cavaliers forward told reporters. “We don’t disrespect women in no shape or fashion in our locker room. That never comes up.”

“I’ve got a mother-in-law, a wife, a mom and a daughter, and those conversations just don’t go on in our locker room,” James said Tuesday. “What goes on in our locker room is sporting events that happened the night before, about family, about strategies that we may have that night, about a highlight that may have happened, you know, if there was a home run in the bottom of the ninth or there was an alley-oop dunk from a player the night before. That’s what happens in our locker room.”

“But what that guy was saying,” James then added, “I don’t know what that is.”

Having spent years playing various sports – football, wrestling, hockey, lacrosse – as well as military facilities on land and aboard ship – not to mention the gym I currently attend – I can tell you for a fact that unless the Cleveland Cavaliers are sharing a locker room with a local Christian boys group – Lebron is full of crap. I hear things even today in the locker room of my gym, uttered by well-educated doctors, attorneys, engineers, etc. that would make a Marine blush. I have an acquaintance – a neurosurgeon, whose foul mouth would turn Lebron white. read more

Planned Parenthood is Back with a Vengeance

Planned Parenthood is back in the news. Hooray! They took a well-deserved hit after the videos emerged of just what an awful place it is and how awful some of the people who run these places are. Unfortunately not enough of a hit, as they are still in business.

But now, with eugenist-loving Hillary Clinton running for president, Planned Parenthood is preparing its triumphant comeback. Not just to defend its vile practice, but actually promote it as part of Hillary’s campaign. Hooray again!

OneNewsNow (ONN) reports that, “While Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards proclaimed to an Ohio crowd on Wednesday [10/05] that it is an ‘exciting thing’ to hear women ‘tell their abortion stories’ to help promote the procedure, the abortion giant also announced it is launching a $30 million army to storm the country campaigning for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.”

Wow – I know I’m very excited to hear some good-ole `round the campfire abortion stories. Maybe Cecile can record them as childrens’ bedtime stories. That would be great – you know – get the little girls started early. read more

A real constitutionalist comes out pro-Trump

Michele Bachmann, the former Minnesota congressman, is one of the good guys. Since she is a normal, conservative American, I can almost guarantee she would take no offense at me calling her either a congressman or one of the good guys.

But much to many conservatives’ dismay, I’m sure, she has come out in support of the Trumpster. Recently, Mark Levin did the same – although not really.

It’s been widely, and purposely, reported that Levin is also supporting or endorsing Donald Trump. This is wrong. Mark merely said he will vote for Trump – that’s it. For anyone interested, I am still somewhere between Mark and Glenn Beck. I haven’t decided. read more

In the Vernacular of the LGBTQ Community – I Guess I am Politically Questioning

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Give me a reason to vote for Trump!

Mark Levin has as much as said he’s voting for Trump. He certainly isn’t endorsing him, but as he describes, his choice is between slitting his own throat (a vote for Hillary) and cutting his own arm off (a vote for Trump). He says he sure is not going to slit his throat, and unlikely to cut his arm off, but given the choice…

I’m obviously unconvinced of Trump. That’s not accurate. I am convinced of Trump – convinced that he will out-progressive George Bush and will out-Hoover, Herbert Hoover. However, I will not say he’s unqualified, as Hillary has. He is qualified to be president.

I’m also convinced of Hillary – that she is possibly – check that – absolutely the most corrupt individual to run for the presidency in this country’s history. Yet she is qualified.

I’m tired of hearing from both sides that the other’s candidate is unqualified. Both he and Hillary are fully qualified to be president. What? Are you kidding, you may be saying? read more
