More Than Half Of Americans Agree With Trump: The Presidential Nominating System Is "Rigged"





For the past two weeks, Donald Trump has been on a tear, raging at how rigged the US presidential nominating system is. This is not a surprise to our readers: just two weeks ago we posted an article "The Year Americans Found Out Their Elections Are Rigged" which promptly went viral. And, judging by the Reuters/Ipsos poll, more than half of America agrees with Trump that the system U.S. political parties use to pick their candidates for the White House is "rigged" while more than two-thirds want to see the process changed.

Not Interested: 4.5 Million Voters Sit Out Democratic Primaries





For the past few months, we have been shown the massive crowds of millennials flooding Bernie Sanders rallies, and the dyed in the wool democrats who have been flocking to Hillary's. The narrative has been that the Democrats have really generated some enthusiasm this year that hasn't been seen in the past. As is often the case, however, propaganda is much different than reality.

Meet Trump 2.0: "Be Afraid, Anti-Trump Forces, Be Very Afraid"





Donald Trump 2.0 made his official debut Tuesday night following his sweeping victory in New York reestablishing him as the man to beat in the Republican presidential race. That version of Trump was markedly more disciplined, gentler and more appealing than the version of Trump we've seen for much of the last year. And, that fact should scare the hell out of establishment Republicans who believed that their efforts to keep Trump from the 1,237 delegates he needs to formally capture the GOP nomination was beginning to catch on.

Trump Nearly Sweeps New York, Takes Almost All State Delgates: What Happens Next





Putting much of the recent doubts about his slowing momentum aside, Donald Trump roared to a major victory in New York last night, collecting over 60% of the vote which will see him come away with a huge haul of delegates that moves him closer to the GOP presidential nomination. Trump began the night with 756 delegates, according to The Associated Press. He appears poised to take 89 of the 95 delegates that were up for grabs in New York. That would bring Trump’s total to 856 delegates, putting him 68 percent of the way to the 1,237 needed to clinch the nomination before the Republican National Convention in July.

A Morally Sound Tax Reform Proposal





Democracy does not trump human nature. State dependents will vote for those they perceive will continue their subsidies. Instead of lobbying for the redress of phony grievances against Politically Correct victims and groups, social justice warriors should direct their energies to the long suffering U.S. taxpayers and demand that those who live off them should have no say in either how much taxpayers are to pay or how their confiscated wealth is to be dispersed.

Will Trump Be Swindled In Cleveland, Too?

Did Trump Just Commit A Major Error: Why Renouncing Republican Pledge Could Cost Him 50 Delegates





As of this moment, Donald Trump has 736 delegates and is (mostly) smoothly sailing to the nomination with Ted Cruz almost 273 behind him at 463. However, there is suddenly an all too real chance that 273 difference can melt to as little as 173 with Trump's delegate count dropping by 50 as a result of what happened during this week's CNN townhall meeting when as previously reported, Trump reneged on his pledge to support the GOP candidate. The reason is that by doing so, he may have jeopardized his hold on South Carolina’s 50 delegates.

Here's How The Establishment Will Steal The GOP Nomination From Trump





Trump may have proven remarkably adept at whipping certain sectors of the electorate into a veritable frenzy, but he himself will tell you that he’s no politician. In fact, he prides himself on being "outside the political fold," so to speak. He may know quite a few tricks in the boardroom, but he doesn’t know all of the tricks of the political trade, and as Bloomberg outlines, he could still have the nomination “stolen” from him, if the party pulls out all of the stops.

Which States Rely Most On Federal Spending?





The state most reliant on federal spending is Mississippi where federal spending is equal to 32% of the state's GDP, and the current central banking regime perpetuates the current imbalance between net tax payer states and net tax receiver states by making it more difficult for poorer parts of the country to accumulate wealth and increase productivity.
