    If, at this point, you are still a Republican, don’t expect to win. You support all of Trump’s hateful rhetoric and there’s nothing more to say about it.

      And if you vote democrat, you side with the real intolerance just like the first person on this post. The side that preaches death to cops. The side that values feelings over facts. The side that suggests we pay a living wage to those “unable or unwilling to work”. The side that suggests a 90% income tax. The side that believes that the 1st and 2nd Amendments should be eliminated. The side that believes you should be able to kill a 9 month old unborn baby. The side that believes you’re guilty until proven innocent. The side that can’t take a joke. The side who flip flop on every issue depending upon the trend of the day. The side that bankrupted California. Should I continue?

    @Republicans?Please She is the most loving human being I have ever met. You should get to know her, I bet you would find she is very likeable, and may even share the same wants and desires as you do for your community. Just a thought before you burn her at the stake. “hateful rhetoric” yikes!

    Agreed — this is precisely the reason why many fine people, who wish to run for public office — both Republican and Democrat — hesitate to do so because of the awful and hateful trolling comments that are made in response to campaign announcements or interviews. So many gross generalities are tossed about in the most unkind ways and some of the responses to comments here are a perfect example of why so many good people steer clear of political involvement. Give me a break, Proud Republican — not every Democrat believes in all of the things you mentioned; and give me a break Republicans Please? — not everyone is going to vote against a candidate just because President Trump is a Republican, as well. Not everything is black and white, especially when it comes to politics and beliefs.
