Interesting. That I know so few of the names must reflect more on me than on the list. I wouldn't mind reading the Dallas guy's book on Duns Scotus if I had the time.
I actually have met some of them. But that probably only shows how old I am.
Trump is the candidate least likely, not only to "restore the promise", but to do anything he says he might do: (1) He's never done anything like this before; (2) We don't know how far fetched his business claims are; (3) We do know that he reneges on agreements, calling it smart business, and (4) that as far as we can tell, he pays no federal income tax, calls it smart, but it means that he claims not to have any earnings year after year.Interesting that Newt Gingrich is on the list ~~ but then where is Ben Carson, or does M.D. not count? We saw how these two struggled, even seemed to hold their noses in staying with the Republican candidate, a so-called Republican who just 4 years ago was supporting "Secretary Clinton", but now, what, wants her in jail?It's not just that we who have voted Republican in the past would need to hold our noses to support Trump. It's that we will then need to hold our breath if he gets elected.I'm with Romney, that the Libertarian Party needs to flip their ticket. We Republicans and Democrats in Massachusetts know how good Weld is. Would Johnson be so bad, even if he puts his foot in his mouth all the time? Then again, he might be a Republican-turned-Libertarian version of Biden.
