IOWA CAUCUS @ Crossroads of History , allegory .

America is at the crossroads of history , IF  this election when & it's over is not going to leave any one with a savory smile . WHO you get in the WHITE HOUSE is whom you deserve . We all  had ample time to CHANGE everything way back in 2012 . We would probably would have not have had Trump , Mrs. Clinton , Sanders , Rubio and Cruz . The Man that should had been elected should have been (1)>>Mitt Romney .That's just one finding in a brutal CNN poll, released a few years ago, which shows Romney topping Obama in a re-election rematch by a whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent. That's an even larger spread than CNN found in November 2014 , when a survey had Romney winning a redo 49 percent to 45 percent. WHY I am I say this ??? First we do
have a real quagmire in our political system, ****yes all the candidates SUCK . I came to that conclusion that the re-election of Mr. Obama was catastrophic to the American system . Obama had enough mojo (voodoo) to cast a hex on the Republicans who for eight years , though bitterly against Obama , soon turned on each other . The GOP , ultra-right so called  "tea par - tiers" soon lost all credibility with TRUE Reagan CONSERVATIVES. Now the GOP has , though the (1.2)>>IOWA CAUCUS debacle has made Cruz the winner , they've just kicked their can in the political gutter . Their poster boy obvious first choice in the populist vote is TRUMP.  That has scared the GOP of not embracing Trump out of fear of him , that he's bit too radical , less rational choice.Cruz is no less a Trump , he is just as radical for the radicals who are has hard line (1.3)>>"PatBuchanan  , but no sure winner Cruz is not going to make it .MEANWHILE we look at the Democratic Party , they are in no worse shape than the GOP , just look at the candidates it's so narrow and one sided , even though Bernie Sanders is there as a standby, it's centered on the election
of   (2)>>Mrs. Clinton . Obama's voodoo also damaged the Democrats , they have no one else but Mrs. Clinton , Between the serially unpopular, cost-raising, care stealing Affordable Care Act that bears his name, a stagnant economy, and a deteriorating Middle East, there's not much for the Democratic leader to hang his hat on. And nationwide, it's been devastating for DemocratsSince Obama was first elected, Democrats have lost at least 14 Senate seats. (Louisiana is another likely loss.) The party has lost more than 70 seats in the House, and will field its smallest caucus in the next Congress since before FDR. Only 18 states have Democrat governors, compared to 29 states when Obama took office. Around 1,000 state legislative seats have shifted to the Republicans. The GOP will control 68 of the nation’s 99 state legislative chambers, again the largest disparity since before FDR. HONESTLY I don't how Mrs. Clinton is going to run this country in 2017? There is so much GOP opposition it would have been the wiser to have elected TRUMP.The Democrat party has long been a disgrace, but even that is gone now. Despite the media, both mainstream and alternative, predictions of the demise of the Republican Party (IMO, fueled by
their hatred of Donald Trump), the Democratic Party is losing its stranglehold on working Americans. Their base is shrinking; while, in general, this group would rather vote Democrat, their belief that the Republicans have done less damage, has reached their consciousness via their pocketbooks, has made 
them open to Republican candidates. If the Democrats want to stop this hemorrhage, they have to nix Hillary. Although Obama has done a lot of damage, most Americans, still like him, even if they think he was a horrible President. Clinton is not perceived that way.  
The presidential selection process is out of whack — as, to be sure, are many things relating to politics and government, both at the national and the state level. That the 2012  presidential campaign should have gone toward Romney is all to true now,   has gone on throughout 2016 and has another year to run, is one vital piece of the evidence. You don't need this long to pick a president. Unless, the picking of the president has become somehow the most important thing Americans do: more important than forming families, looking for work, buying homes, getting through school and college and/or saving for retirement. Americans have let it slide down hill, Politics has gotten so divisive and difficult to understand that I fear it discourages potential leaders from considering public office. The hangers-on will always be with us as professional politicos, but an emerging new class of leaders will be held in abeyance by lack of money, support or the courage of conviction to invest what it takes to succeed in the cesspool of politics.  Trump # 2. Donald Trump was surprisingly humble after his second place finish in Iowa. “We finished second,” he told supporters minutes after Cruz was declared the winner, “and I want to tell you something: I’m just honored. I’m really honored. And I want to congratulate Ted, and I want to congratulate all of the incredible candidates, including Mike Huckabee, who has become a really good friend of mine.”NO CRUZ CONTROL. For instance,
Cruz’s team sent out mailers over the weekend, which, according to Politico, “showed the name of the person receiving the mail at the top and then gave them a grade on an A to F scale. Below, it showed their neighbors and their voting scores. It urged them to caucus next week and warned, ‘A follow-up notice may be issued following Monday’s caucuses.’” The mailers might not have violated any laws, but Iowa’s Republican secretary of state remarked that they weren’t “in keeping with the spirit of the Iowa Caucuses.”
Cruz is also taking heat for putting out a release during the caucuses stating that (3)>>Ben Carson was skipping New Hampshire and retreating to Florida, implying that Carson was suspending his campaign. Although Cruz later apologized, the damage was already done. Carson’s campaign died weeks ago, but he still has a lot of support in Iowa. If Cruz’s release deterred even a few Carson supporters, it made a difference. Carson’s senior communications strategist, Jason Osborne, condemned the Cruz campaign, saying “it calls into question the results.” Somewhere along the way, the story got twisted. Cruz campaign aides alerted supporters in Iowa that Carson might be a goner. Before long there were allegations that the Cruz campaign had suppressed Carson's vote total by spreading rumors that Carson was giving up on the race.Shortly after the CNN report came out, Carson's campaign downplayed the significance, saying the candidate needed a fresh set of clothes. Meanwhile, political analysts generally agreed with Tapper and Bash's assessment that it was unusual for a presidential candidate to not rush to New Hampshire. Virtually all of Carson's rivals hurried to New Hampshire after the caucuses. T
ed  Cruz has lied his way to the top.  Unfortunately the right-wing Tea Party wack jobs in Iowa fawned all over him.  Cruz will be lucky to hold on to his Senate seat next time. As the World situation gets worse and worse, America is entering another election cycle ( do they ever leave it?). This go around we have two Democrats Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders leading their pack. The Republicans have Donald Trump, Ben Carson , Mark Rubio and a slew of others still vying to be the GOP candidate. Both parties are completely bereft to the point that they seemingly trade the White House between themselves every 8 years. It's easier for the parties to equally share in the preplanned misery they have in store for the masses as neither ever fulfill their campaign promises. America has been a duopoly now undermined by homemade political dynasties that offer nothing but spokesmen who are little more than fake, hollow leaders.

****yes all the candidates SUCK . KORN front man Jonathan Davis got to talking about politics and the 2016 race.“They all suck. The f**king candidates, they all suck. Why can’t there be anybody good?,” said Davis. “I just want the America I had as a kid growing up, and it’s not that no more.”“I like Rand Paul, but that’s never gonna happen.”Davis also had a choice in the last election, “Ron Paul should have been president, but that would have never happened.”“I believe presidents are chosen, not elected. Why is [every] president f**king related? You tell me that. No little guy is gonna make it,” he said.It’s all so corrupt.”(1)>>Mitt Romney .But what if Mitt Romney had won in 2012? America would now be nearly 200 days into his first term in the White House. It is worth pondering how different things might look. Yet interviews with former aides, along with recently-disclosed internal documents, reveal the former Bay State governor to be more interesting, even radical. During his first 200 days in office, he planned a “continual stream of rapid changes” to the way that America taxes and spends, cares for its sick and needy and regulates business. Aides drew comparisons, as incoming administrations often do, to the frenetic activity of Franklin Roosevelt’s early months in office, during which he signed 15 big bills.Michael Leavitt, the former Utah governor who chaired Mr Romney’s transition team, describes plans to deliver a “jolt of confidence” by showing seriousness in a few big areas. He would simplify America’s spaghetti-spill of a tax code. He would grapple with the deficit; expand domestic energy production; and reduce the role of government in health care by hollowing out “Obamacare” reforms. Success was to be measured by bosses releasing cash they were hoarding when Mr Obama was president, and rushing to join a Romney-led American revival. Trump # 2. Still stinging from his first defeat as a presidential candidate, Donald Trump rolled into New Hampshire on Thursday with a new mantra: There is no such thing as too much campaigning.He also broke from his usual playbook by taking questions from the audience at the first of many events planned for Thursday.  (3)>>Ben Carson . Ben Carson was incensed as the results of Monday night’s Iowa caucuses rolled in, accusing the winner of spreading falsehoods about him at caucus sites.Carson’s team claimed that Ted Cruz’s campaign deliberately sent emails to supporters to spread false rumors at caucus sites that Carson had dropped out, so his supporters would caucus for other candidates. And after initially denying any wrongdoing late Monday, Cruz apologized Tuesdayand called it a “mistake.”“That is really quite a dirty trick,” Carson told reporters Monday evening. “That’s the very kind of thing that irritated me enough to get into this quagmire.”(1.2)>>IOWA CAUCUS . As a result of the coin toss, Clinton was awarded an additional delegate, meaning she took five of the precinct’s eight, while Sanders received three. One thing is clear after Monday night's Iowa caucuses: there's a long, volatile election season ahead before two deeply fractured parties can unite behind a nominee. Republican Ted Cruz bested Donald Trump, raising questions about the billionaire's reliance on his celebrity instead of traditional political organization. And Marco Rubio's stronger-than-expected showing could mark him as the establishment's best hope against a grassroots revolt in next week's New Hampshire primary and beyond. (2)>>Mrs. Clinton .The Liberal Media mantra of the 1992 presidential election was that it was time for a “young” American president from a “new generation”, not incumbent Republican president George HW Bush of the World War II generation (born in 1924). And so Bill Clinton was elected that year as the first president from the so-called Baby Boom generation (born in 1946).Then in 2008 we were supposed to vote for Obama because he would be “the first black president” even though Obama is half-white. And now we are supposed to elect Hillary Clinton president in 2016 because she would be “the first woman president”. (1.3)>>"PatBuchanan . On the NEIL CAVUTO show Buchanan said this about Ted Cruz : 
PAT BUCHANAN: Well, I think you're right. I think what Ted Cruz was trying to do is what Jean Kirkpatrick did at the 1984 convention of the Republicans where she referred to San Francisco Democrats a number of times and people laughed and cheered, but you're right, Neil. When folks think of New York now, and what is the image? A lot of us think of the image as firemen running into a burning building and climbing up stairs to rescue people when there's a good probability those buildings are going to collapse on top of them, which is what happened. So, I think that it was a tin eared comment by Senator Cruz and I think he's going to pay a place for it and was Donald Trump's best moment in the debate and it's one reasons that a number of people say it was his best debate and he won it.
