    Listen to this man and see if he is not the best one for the job although he would be taken out one way or the other if he was elected, but if he could get in and survive he would be great.IMO.

    I think that President Trump will even gain seats in 2020.

    No particularly impressive candidate has emerged against him so far.

    I think he has too much influance from his daughter and her associates. I wish he had of done what he promised although I have been fooled too much to ever vote again.

    I voted for Alan Keyes way back when in the Republican primary when he ran for president. I've since learned that while he sounds great, when you write his words down on paper (or monitor), they don't scan well. I think Keyes got exactly two votes in this county, mine and my father's.

    As for my nominations for leader of the Democrats, I suggest Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Al Gore, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Michael Dukakis, or any one of a dozen other proven disasters. Hell, Walter Mondale is still alive, get him. He managed to win just 13 electoral votes in the 1984 election against Reagan, he's perfect.

    Here is the summary from the author himself:

    ........ "If you take the indigenous sacred books of almost everybody in the Holy Land (the Qur'an & the Bible's Old & New Testaments) and put them together, what you get is One Nation with two sub-states that correspond with the pre-1967 war borders, with the exception of Jerusalem, which isn't divided, but instead serves as united capital of the entire country. That's it in a nutshell."(R. M.)
