    Did Brat have his head sticking out of the top of a convertible in that picture? It looks like there was a stiff wind in his face.

    Ther is an actual libertarian party candidate who has damn good web site, facebook and twitter savvy, it seems. Since Brat teaches at a libertarian funded program, there could be a split, possibly giving the Dem a plurality.

    Of course that would mean Dems probably pumping up this third party candidate named Carr, but he will be on the ballot.

    They are all really unknown quantities, who knows?

    As long as they aren't connected to the establishment, and are brand new apples off the tree/from the public, then I consider them precisely what our country needs right now. But the Globalists/Establishment are so good at 'recruiting' and corrupting prospective candidates that it's very difficult to know if "they got to him" yet. Principled and courageous politicians typically don't last long in the viper pit. That's why we need to put as many new people in there as possible.
    As defined by the Official Terrorism Training For Law Enforcement:
    What Is Domestic Terrorism?
    Extreme force and violence perpetrated by
    the people government of a country, within that country,
    for the purpose of coercing its government and population public
    into modifying its behavior"

    You are either with Our Constitution or you are with The Terrorists!

    Government...if it leans to the left it eventually means theft. - tlc

    Why do you need to secure the border before giving out freebies? Otherwise you get something even worse than this:

    The Rio Grande Valley has become ground zero for an unprecedented surge in families and unaccompanied children flooding across the Southwest border, creating what the Obama administration is calling a humanitarian crisis as border officials struggle to accommodate new detainees. Largely from Central America, they are now arriving at a rate of more than 35,000 a month.

    Anzalduas Park, a 96-acre expanse of close-cropped fields and woodland that sits on the southern bend of the river, has turned from an idyllic family recreation area into a high-traffic zone for illegal migration.

    The number of children and teenagers traveling alone from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador is expected to reach up to 90,000 across the Southwest border by the end of the year, along with a surge of families with children seeking safe passage into the U.S.

    "This is the hottest spot in the nation for crossings," said Hidalgo County Precinct 3 Constable Lazaro "Larry" Gallardo, a valley native who said he had never seen a migration wave of such a scale during his 14 years in office. "Something's got to be done because the numbers are just too high."

    Detentions along this stretch of the river have gone from up to 50 immigrants a week to as many as 300. On Tuesday night, constables captured 100, on Monday nearly 200. Authorities are comparing the onslaught of homeless detainees to the displacements brought by Hurricane Katrina.

    "The basic difference is that the vast majority of those people were here legally, whereas the current group has come here illegally," said Donald Reay, executive director of the Southwest Border Sheriff's Coalition. "You end up with a double-edged sword. You want to deal with the humanitarian side but also have to deal with the rule-of-law side."
    Then there's this gem:

    Once they are processed, the Border Patrol has been flying many families to other states and releasing them en masse at bus stations with notices to appear in immigration courts at their destinations.

    Can someone make a silly post about how tough Obama is on illegal immigration again?
