  1. I never have nor ever will vote for a professional politician. There entire goal in life is to obtain power. They are grown up versions of the safety patrol and hall monitors.

  2. *** Much too soon, however with Trump in the W/H & the complete disregard of the republicans to stand strong & together against some of the blatant criminal type behavior & violation of peoples human & civil rights. Along with the constant child-like tweaks & lying in public and on the news. I certainly will not be voting for any republicans regardless on weather their the better opponent or not! ***
