    I'm still not convinced the GOP will let him be their nominee.

    H. L. Mencken said it best:


    “Democracy is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”


    "As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron."

    In the unlikely event, the bets will be off and the money returned, of course.

    I'm not doing this to be a fair gambler. I'm doing this to give all these paid trolls a chance to make it look like they aren't trolls. And to get a piece of their action, of course.

    Just providing a service for a fee.

    Might give the rest of us some good quoteworthy quotes to use in other threads, too. Like the one below.

    If anyone actually wants to do more than talk, I'll be watching. I'm tempted to cover all bets on silly things like whether he'll 'declassify the 28 pages', too, but it would be too much trouble to return the 'no bet' money after he loses.

    Thats why the smart guy asking people to put their money where their mouth is needs to offer up the odds. Trump might not even be the nominee to even have a chance to beat the Hildabeast.

    So what are we talking 5:1 10:1, 100:1, 1000:1?

    If its 1000:1 I'd like to place a $100 bet assuming the money is placed in escrow.

    I don't think anyone said Trump would skunk Hillary. I think I questioned the proof that the opposite would happen. Where is it? The polls have been wrong in some places, and I know my state had an unprecidented 850,000 voting in the Republican primary. People talk like Tennessee is a red state. It really is not. It's half and half and getting bluer by the day.

    Hillary is not talking like she's an automatic in. She shrieking like a shrew who is holding on by the toenails.

    Up until now, everyone but Trump has been working with some of the foremost political strategists out there. Trump is defying odds in a lot of ways.

    I'm not up for a bet, even if I had money to spare. I'm just an interested observer looking at what's going on and thinking this might be surprises in store.

    I look at these people and I listen to them, and Trump is the only one who looks comfortable. At the last debate, even the soft-spoken Kasich's voice was worn out. Rubio was barely audible. Cruz sounded horrible. Trump sounded normal. The difference might be that he is a man whose currency is risk. He seems very comfortable with risk.

    Bernie and Hillary sound very desperate. If Bernie is sending people in to disrupt rallies, then what does that say? It says he knows his message is not enough. He has to disrupt the messages of others.

    I actually think Tronald would defeat Clinton if he's the nominee--he's frighteningly persuasive, as we can see in this forum alone. The polls say he'd do poorly, but he was also low in the primary polls when he first announced. He'll adjust his emotional appeal and start delivering "kill shots" against Clinton and his poll numbers will rise. The hard-left democrats will also be less than enthusiastic in the general with how the party is treating Berndogg.

    I'm not convinced by Trump's message. I'm just looking at what's going on this cycle and I see things that don't fit the patterns of the past. I can't explain them. I just see them.

    Fred Thompson was one of the most popular polticians in Tennessee history. He got about 885,000 votes in the 1994 the special election (replacing Gore, who became VP). When almost that many people to turn out for a Republican primary this year makes me wonder. Ronald Reagan didn't get that many votes in the general election in 1980.

    Just saw this in the comments section on Zerohedge, not sure how accurate the numbers are, but interesting to ponder nonetheless:

    So the new tactic is polls emerging showing that Trump can't win against Hillarnazi depsite the following facts:

    -Hillarnazi's turnouts are dismal, and most of them who show up are paid to be there

    -Trump turnout is at a record level like we've never seen

    -25% of the racist blacks are willing to vote for Trump

    -over 50% of hispanics are willing to vote for Trump

    -those who voted for Sanders said they would vote for Trump over Hillarnazi

    -20% of generic democrat voters said they would vote for Trump



    So more media propaganda to keep us from voting for Trump, or is it true he can't win against the unconvicted felon?

    I do more than stare at a computer screen and play off my friends. I put what the media says into the context of my experience, and that says the media is either honestly misinterpreting the numbers or out right lying. Or maybe a combination of the two.

    What I know is that the morning conservative talk show I hear on the way to work has been all about Rubio. They can't explain why he lost. They feature a regular guest who is all about Cruz and cannot explain his dismal numbers here in Tennessee. But they agree that the total number of people who showed up to vote in a Republican primary is truly astonishing. It really is beyond explanation according to traditional interpretations. Here is my take:

    1. People are fed up with what is happening to our nation. There is a loss of vision and destiny, and people are no longer inspired to be their best.

    2. People are fed up with government AND media. They are tired of hearing the same mantra over and over, and it does not work. People can plainly see that what government and media tell them is not the truth.

    3. People are coming to see that the rank-and-file politicians will promise anything to be elected, but they really do not know how to accomplish what they promise. This is why you have sitting senators who cannot explain their votes on immigration, continuing resolutions, judicial appointments, etc.

    4. The divisive issues are not social issues, oddly enough. Those divisions are there, but they are way down on the list to someone who doesn't have a good job and who sees our kids suiting up to go off to wars that make no sense.

    I don't really hear people talking about politicians as much as they are talking about the issues that are important to them. I have a feeling a lot of people are going to regret not listening to Ron Paul and Rand Paul a little more and looking at the issues through a liberty lens, but they won't regret not voting for people who have proven themselves to be failures.

    And I think local and state parties are going to feel the hurt first. I and my friends don't miss the fact that Jim Cooper runs practically unopposed in every election and that some state districts have not seen Republican representation in decades, if ever. This cycle has put the RNC squarely under the microscope, and I think the fallout will be huge.

    I can't speak for all but I couldn't care less what the GOP fallout is. I dont know how one cannot correlate the treatment of Ron Paul to the treatment of the Donald. Even if their views are 180s.

    F the GOP and f their attempted end around of the voters choice. Even if I disagree with him.

    No, trying to price me out by making me put up three times as much escrow as everyone else--after I said I won't do it--does not make it look like you believe your own bull.

    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.

    Not at all. I can get 2:1 elsewhere... If you would beat those odds I would be more than happy to take your $$$.

    Is this what you people consider 'putting up' or what you people consider 'shutting up'?

    Y'all are running around here blathering about how badly Trump will beat the Democrat like it's a given. But here you are arguing over how much you have to get to offset the risk y'all claim doesn't exist.

    It isn't enough I'm giving money away? Why on earth not?

    Is Trump Today's Safety Bet or not? Prove you believe it.
