I love Bolton, he's the best guy on the list.

Palin would be great just to keep the left hate machine in full swing.

Ben Carson is a great choice because he's a great man, just a terrible candidate

I hope Christie is left out. Never liked him.

If course there are only so many old white men to choose from

I hope David Clark isn't considered.

I don't want the "Department of Homeland Security" headed by someone who has expressed such venom towards dissident groups. That would give him way too much power to do that thing where out of one side of their mouth they talk about 'respecting the free speech rights of everyone' but quietly, behind closed doors, those same people are asymmetrically attacked with other 'show me the man, I'll show you the crime' type laws.

If David Clark is head of DHS (an agency known to conduct illegal surveillance only to quietly pass the results on to local LE who can engage in parallel construction of bullshit cases to target dissidents), it will be no different than what Hoover did in the 60's.

Attorney General Rudy
Secretary of State: Ambassador John Bolton
Chief of Staff: RNC chief Reince Priebus
Secretary of Homeland Security Senator Jeff Sessions
No on Christie, Palin, Huckabee
Bring Jim Webb on board as advisor or nsa. He would be a huge asset.
Bring someone on board to do messaging. I am talking about putting things togeather educating people on exactly what they are doing. Example would be to create a example of a regulation and show the people what exactly that means to them financially. Right down to a very poor family's utilities and food.

I would also attack muni's that create income through driving tickets. Unfair tax on poor.

So because Janet Reno burned children alive, that now sets the standard against which we judge all future participants in the state security apparatus?
And if they don't have a record of burning children alive, that makes them OK because Janet Reno did?

If you're a protester, an activist in Black Lives Matter or any number of dissident groups, someone like David Clark as the head of DHS will be a nightmare to you, personally, in personal ways. Now, invert that and consider that the BATF has been using aggressive surveillance techniques against people who attend gun shows. http://www.wsj.com/a...tiny-1475451302

That's an example of a state security apparatus targeting a specific group because the people in power give them leave to do so. If you support COINTELPRO stuff for BLM or other dissident groups, then there is no crying when it's used against right wing interests when the other side is in office (or behind the badge)

That was more a throwaway comment than a thought out essay. And you already know the answer to your rhetorical questions.
