Now that it's inevitable that Donald Trump will become the 45th (and Greatest-Ever) President of the United States (he's told us this many times, so we know it's true) it is very important that he picks a fabulous running mate.

Either Sanders and Clinton will beat Trump. That will mean that America will be in a better place, ready to address many of our problems.

How disgusting it is that an advertisement for President Roosevelt's re-election campaign is shamelessly referring to the success of this year's D-Day invasion and the recent liberation of Paris in his campaign for re-election!

Mitt Romney has it all twisted. Should I be pro-choice or pro-life? Consult the polls. Am I a moderate or conservative? Whet my finger to the wind. Winning is the cause; convictions are the means, so change the means by all means. He bows to the great God of this age, "Me."
