With the practically fulfilled nomination of Donald Trump as our presidential candidate, I can no longer continue to carry out the duties of this position. My principles will not allow it.

Bravo. This is why I left the pub party years ago.

Good point, a better question would be, what has the GOP'e done for the country?

Other than destroy the economy with their failure to reign in spending and Obozo - not too much good.

Well Solar see that's just it.

Which Gop do ya mean?

The one that opposed slavery, supported equal rights under the law for all citizens, supported equal voting rights for women etc?

Or the one we have today, that rolls over and supports socialism, but actively assists in attempting to impose it.

The moment a dimwit snaps their fingers someplace? If you mean the Gop of today, who lacks any spine at all, and has allowed a criminal rogue President to remain in office unConstitutionally.

The same Gop of today, which supports candidates who espouse clearly anti-American, Unconstitutional and discriminatory practices.

Like banning people based upon race or religious affiliation?

If you mean the former I can cite many examples where that party was a boon for our Republic.

If you mean the latter one, which puts forward Orangutans as a suitable choice for President.

Despite the fact they have a public history of liberalism long as your leg!

Sorry, I can't think of anything good to come out of That latter Gop.

Resigning as Communications Chair from YRNF
MAY 23 · PUBLIC
To my dear friends at the Young Republican National Federation:

Regretfully, I am resigning from my position as Communications Chair with the YRNF. With the practically fulfilled nomination of Donald Trump as our presidential candidate, I can no longer continue to carry out the duties of this position. My principles will not allow it.

For now, I will continue to serve as International Outreach and in my South Carolina Chair position. I want to continue to work in the Republican cause, supporting conservative ideals and helping to elect down ballot candidates.

I call on other YR leaders to prayerfully consider their own positions. There is no easy answer to the situation our party is in, but I believe we would do much more for our country by standing together against Donald Trump. We have been told for years how we are the future of the party, this is our opportunity to seize that future. But if we have instead decided to uphold a man who does not represent us or our views -- a man that has belittled war heroes, explicitly stated misogynist beliefs, relied on intimidation of minorities, insulted our international allies, rewarded violence, championed divisive rhetoric and proved completely uneducated in conservative fiscal policy -- I cannot participate in that. When each of us decided to get involved in politics, we all hoped to change our county, our state, our nation for the better. We sit on the edge of history now, a choice to be made.

As the head of our national communications my voice is part of our message, and I am intrinsically tied to it. Therefore I must step down. I cannot live with being seen as supporting a candidate I truly feels tramples on all of our values. Even if we, as an organization, focused exclusively on congressional candidates, we would still be seen as complicit. It would be impossible to resist the pressure to push for a straight-R ticket when we campaign.

The role of the Communications Committee is to reach our members and the public with our positions in support of our parent party. Unfortunately, the RNC has decided to embrace this candidate as our standard-bearer. So every press release, every tweet that does not denounce Trump will be seen as capitulating to the GOP. Our social media accounts have already seen messages from people announcing their support of Donald Trump and invoking our organization. I cannot be part of that. No matter how loud I am in my renouncement of Trump, my title will still betray me. I want no part of a racist, fascist, hateful presidency.

I joined this leadership team to change the game headed into this election. I wanted Young Republicans to be part of the conversation about the White House, to be seen for all the hard work we put in year after year to elect Republicans. But I never could have imagined this outcome. And I cannot use my skills, or implement the plan I laid out for 2016, without feeling like I am losing my soul.

Many of you may choose to support Trump in order to beat Hillary Clinton, that is your decision. For me, I cannot support a candidate who endorses bigotry and lawlessness, with a minimal understanding of the fiscal policies long associated with our party, even if he does have an “R” after his name. I could not later tell my children I did the right thing, instead I would have to live with allowing my politics to be corrupted. I cannot stand by and continue to write newsletters and posts that so strongly conflict with my personal values. I will not surrender my beliefs.

This is not the way forward. I will not quietly fall in line. I will not give up my principles.

I will always be ‪#‎NeverTrump‬.

Miscellaneous / Generational achievements?
« Last post by Solar on Today at 08:01:18 AM »
So what's next? Here's a list of generations from early 20th century to the present, but one has to ask what's next? I thought this might make for an interesting discussion.
Follow this PDF link, it's packed full of an in depth view of what each generation had to offer to the nation.
What I found extremely interesting was the differences in responsibilities of our generation to that of the latest, the entitlement gen, and the way Marxist ideals are creeping into the culture.
There are 11 pages easy to read, take a look and see what you think. For me, it was a total eyeopener

G.I. Generation 1901 -
1924 Experienced WWII in adulthood Greatest Generation
Silent Generation 1925 -

Yea, we as a nation are stuck in a rut. If someone can name one success program for the liberal democrats ( yea that's redundant) please do so. All I can name are programs which were/are total failures. So why in the sam hell are the rinos fighting to become democrat light? The main reason I hear people say they are against Cruz is "he's too religious". REALLY! Hell, if he was any one of the new sexes out there they could accept that, but not too religious. If this great nation goes to hell in a hand basket, it will not be because of the democrats but because of the damn republicans who let them destroy it.



gonna go take my meds now.

Your Solarness --

If you insist on engaging in this nonsense, it would be better if you picked a time when my Ladyfriend was not out of the country.  That way, I wouldn't have the time to help you with the fundamentals of forum posting.

1 - Comprehension is not your issue??  Read on.

2 - Well, as I said once before, "I can explain it to you, but I cannot understand it for you."  You will need to work on that on your own time.

3 - I don't even know what "not of party" is supposed to mean.  I suggested that a write-in vote is not going to produce the next President of these United States.  It's not.  Get over it.

4 - Well, yeah, it is an alternative viewpoint to that of thinking that a write-in vote is going to produce the next President.

5 - I have a deal for you:  If you can refrain from telling me what I should have said, I will extend the same courtesy to you.  I'm actually pretty good at writing what I want to say, in case you hadn't noticed.

6 - Nope; I didn't say that.  There's that reading comprehension problem again.  What I suggested was that you are already tuning up to sing the "Loser's Lament" -- "It wasn't our fault."  Oh, boo hoo.  Stubborn as I am, and that is considerable, I have not yet abandoned the notion that the convention will reject Trump, and, somehow, Cruz will come away with the nomination.  (Yeah, Hoofer, there is that fur-bearing trout story.)

7 - Yes, yes, of course, "It wasn't our fault."  Somewhere around here, somebody has a tag line that says (approx), "It is not Barack Obama who is the problem, it is all those Americans who allowed him to become President."

8 - Oh, golly, gee whiz, yes!  Send that message!  And gag on it for the four years of Hillary, just like we are with Obama.  All those people who stayed home in 2012 really sent a message, didn't they?  And, now, their message is, "But it wasn't our fault."

Since I'm waiting for a phone call from China, and it's not lunch time there yet, I shall amuse myself a little bit more.  You could just ignore me, you know.  I don't post here much, and I only posted because I feel a certain kinship with Hoofer and our common views on gun issues.  Yes, I know, it's an open forum and anybody can respond to anybody, but you could have just passed it by.  Instead, there you are, like a hungry trout rising to a dry fly.

I, too, could ignore you, but I'm passing some idle time at the moment, and seldom have I encountered someone whose opinion of himself quite matches yours, so the temptation is hard to resist.  (Yes, I know, there is another, but he's the President, and he doesn't post here.).

Yes, I understand that you are the Big Frog in this little pond, but I really don't care.  There are so many ponds out there in cyberspace, and so many Big Frogs that one loses track.  That, and you really aren't as good at this stuff as you think you are.  Really, you're not.  I gently suggested that the whole Trump issue seemed to have caused a disconnect in you're logic processing circuitry.  I dunno, now.  Maybe it was always there, and the Trump issue just exacerbates it.

If you would prefer that I not post here anymore, just say so, and I will honor your wishes.  Or, I suppose, you could do your Big Frog thing and ban me, but that might be an admission you're not ready to make.

Anyhow, I think I shall now await my phone call.  Meanwhile,

Be well,
Russ
Ya know, I was going to parse the shit out of this, but then I thought, why bother? You can't seem to grasp current forum technology and reciprocate the same courtesy back, no, instead I have to open a separate window to see what I wrote, and all because some old frog from a dried up mud puddle no longer frequented hasn't the capacity for learning new concepts.
Then has the audacity to insult their host with a myriad of noxious comments based in emotion because he hates having his views challenged.
Which explains why your forum has no Pagerank, and ours has a ranking of 5 out of 10, but I'd be willing to be you haven't a clue what all that means, considering you're still using software only fond in internet museums.
Hurry, go look it up.

Look, I get it, actual debate is not your forte so you build straw men in hopes of distracting from having to face serious queries from your opponents, I get that, but I'm also a fire bug and love torching said distractions, only for so long, then you like so many before you, reach troll status.
So lets cut the crap, you go back to your vernal pond/mud hole and drive away your own traffic. Deal? Assuming you even have any left.
