    No thanks. Just another sickening elite who wants to take Americans rights away. Stay in your tower. Don’t need another Looney tune in the race.

    • Joe Gilbertson

      Did you watch the video? You of all people might appreciate it.

    • Knock Knock

      Haha – sounds like he’s just another Democrat! You’re right – we’ve got enough of those Looney Tunes in the race.

    • Larry Horist

      I am shaking my head in disbelief. My “platform” was so ridiculous that I am surprised anyone took my mocking of the Democrats’ ridiculous proposals seriously. Pj …Knock Knock … I shall assume that Joe Gilbertson is correct. You did not view the entire video.

      • Knock Knock

        Was being ironic, Larry – one would have to be a complete idiot not to see what you were doing… like PJ. But I guess my twice-stepped over-indulgent exaggeration in response to the ridiculous first response escaped even you. Sorry.

    Thought about running myself but they won’t give a janitor matching funds. Racist Ya know.

    Ok Larry, I get it. You’re mocking the Democrats which is no surprise. You’re not running for President because you’re not insane! You’re a smart guy with a conservative mind. You don’t want anybody to have a free ride. You don’t want anybody crossing the border illegally and getting that free ride. Nor do I.

    I’m a Democrat, NOT a f,ing liberal. I believe in equal rights…is that wrong? I believe in a second chance…after that…screw. That’s fair. I believe it’s important to honor your commitments and support to your allies, your friends. You may not agree with everything they want…but it’s important to them…so you support them. Big deal. You don’t mock them! You don’t piss people off if you want them to support you. But then there is always a point you stay your ground. It happens few may times…what’s your right vs. wrong going to be?.

      The world of issues is huge and complex. This was just a little pin prick of satire.

    Going to print his own money, he might as well put his face on it, because all he is going to do is make it play money, and then none of our money, is going to be worth the paper it’s printed on, he sounds like he is definitely going to fit in with all of the other dingbats that are in the Democratic Party.

    • Larry Horist

      Check you joke receiver. I think it is malfunctioning.

      • Joe Gilbertson

        Larry, you would look great with your face on the 1 dollar bill

  5. Stanley Steamer

    I heard Pat Paulsen’s old campaign manager is available.

    And I do mean old.

    • Larry Horist
