In the last debate we saw what a debate looks like minus crying, screaming, pounding tantrums. Tantrums are difficult to listen to for prolonged periods. And, the American voters are reaching their limit.
When we take a breath and see the whole picture we have to ask, “What do the pre-school antics of an adult do to the overall country?” Answer: The Trump Effect.
Assuming a Trump nomination, the GOP will experience a heavy handicap in races all over the country. And to us a little seasonal football talk, “The red jerseys are going to have a huge point spread to try to cover if the party plans on winning it’s Capitol Hill parlay card.”
Trump and Trump’s copycat-crimes have spoken their truth with relatively little backlash from a nationwide electorate. More importantly, these comments, philosophies and promises have not faced the full force and effect of a very capable Democrat National Committee’s attack ad campaign. This is deliberate, not accicential. This is strategic.
Make no mistake, the DNC is praying, lighting candles, crossing their fingers, tossing coins in fountains…possibly sacrificing chickens if there was a chance that would help to keep the GOP primary going as it is.
When the general election campaigns begin we will see an American backlash emerge from the political centrist majority, from non-extremist Republicans, and obviously all Democrats. This spells big problems for all GOP congressional and senatorial candidates as well as down ballot races. This will happen organically as well as with the rabid encouragement of the DNC.
Ultimately, a Trump (or Trump-esque) candidate will fuel a mammoth “anti-R” sentiment that will be a strenuous hill to climb for all Republicans.
Abortion is now mandatory in America; Baby steps to national notoriety; Blizzards and locusts, oh my!; Is Zika a brand of Mexican beer or the next global pandemic?; Competence and common sense are the first casualties of corruption and tyranny; The absence of legal guns means an avalanche of gun violence; Demotion of disgraced VA executives reversed; Where did anybody ever get the noodleheaded idea that Michael Bloomberg is a "centrist," or presidential timbre?; ABC to carry out some long-overdue GOP "mercy killings"; Taiwan flexes military muscle right in Red China's face; and the day-to-day experience of being at the level of the rest of the world.
Then, in the third hour of the Saturday Afternoon Radio Extravaganza on Constitution Radio on KMET 1490-AM, 4PM Eastern/1PM Pacific:
Iran defends Charlie Hebdo attacks, ISIS printing U.S. passports, Islamic invasion collapsing European Union, and the Swiss solution to Muslim rape gangs is....cartoons; The Second Battle of Bundy Hill comes to a deadly and entirely predictable end; Hillary Clinton blatantly tries to bribe Barack Obama with offer of SCOTUS appointment if he doesn't prosecute her on Emailgate; and did Donald Trump finally make his Big Mistake by no-showing the latest GOP debate or is it another stroke of "genius"?
Responding to the bashing of centrist senators in Congress and why centrists have to be prepared for more bashing in the future and what to do about it.

What do you want America?!. What is it, or, what are they?! Do you want a polished Politician. Or do you want a rare un-polished gem. Do you want an attractive polished, yet flawed Democrat or Rebulican Candidate, with many fine qualities in each of them, with the attached ‘caveat/cause for concern’ that although seemingly exquisite, there are slight/greater imperfections. Who among them will go far enough, the distance, bringing us even, better & ahead in life. Please see me. I am an ore for you. I am encrusted and angry with all that is not being done and all that we accept as just ok or expected. There is too much bad breath going around in the White House, Congress and our Supreme Court. The Candidates try to use breath fresheners, It's not working if you really have a nose for it. Politics is thought to be the only way to govern. It is not. Politics is not a right of passage. It is overblown/over budget/over-bloated. I am not there yet in polish and sheen. Do you care to have a perfect speaker or a person who speaks perfect truth honestly, for himself and you. It is in your hands. Please don’t leave me out of sight, out of mind and off the Write-In Ballot. If there are 120,000,000 write-ins, we will all be in: in on it, in on the procession & profession of better government, starting at the top and working across both parties. Imagine a Congress ignoring, refusing to legislate or advance us if the President got 120,000,000 votes. The Voice and Will of the People will be evident and overwhelming - Congress & the Supreme Court could no longer discount us. Congress will have to work for the people and not their small constituency. The Supreme Court can not decide cases with major Justices’ rational dissents, which we give credence to. bwell, c2it, I am Curt Clinton, Curtis Clinton, c2, waiting to shine and sparkle your day with hope, expectation and living relief
