Re: Is Boehner to be believed?

Trump isn't "anti-gun" but the judges he nominates will be just as bad on gun issues as those that Hillary nominates - they may even be the same judges. Since that is the primary influence a President has on 2nd Amendment issues, I see little real difference between them on guns. And that is giving Trump the benefit of the doubt when he says that he supports the 2nd Amendment, which I personally doubt give his past record of supporting anti-gun politicians and his anti-gun statements before this campaign.

While the Republicans have caved to Obama on a bunch of issues, one issue they didn't cave on is the 2nd Amendment! If for no other reason, we should vote for Republicans down ballot.

Re: Is Boehner to be believed?

I wish someone could convince me that Trump will be better than Hillary but right now I just don't see it although I don't think they will necessarily be bad in the same way.

With Hillary, we get more of the Obama administration although I don't think she as quite as radical as Obama is.

With both Hillary and Trump, we get liberal judges including Supreme Court justices. This is of huge importance to me since the primary ways the President affects abortion and gun control is through the courts. Although Obama has shown that some can be done on those issues with the use of executive orders and regulatory actions. Hilary might be worse on those than Trump but I doubt Trump will rescind anything Obama has already done on those issues. So on two of my primary issues, I see Trump and Hillary as a toss up.

On my other major issue, government spending, I don't see any evidence that Trump will be significantly if any different than Hillary. And that is going to destroy this country.

On immigration Trump is probably better, but he could create trade wars that will destroy the world economy which I don't think Hillary will do.

Moreover, Trump will get Republican legislative all out approval for what he will do which may destroy not only the Republican party but also conservatism.

Finally I don't see any difference in character. They both are liars and crooks.

I certainly won't vote for Hillary but I am having a real hard time seeing how I can vote for Trump. I hate this election because I don't see how the Republic survives whoever wins!
