The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775


"The further a society drifts from truth the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell

Florida Governor Rick Scott Gets It

Here's the Nonsense:  There's still a chance that another candidate could beat Trump.  We need to keep fighting this primary battle all the way to the convention, even if it means that the GOP establishment chooses someone as the nominee.

Here's the Horse Sense:  The time to battle is over.  It's time to unite to beat Hillary.  Anyone who thinks she's a better choice than any GOP candidate is just being foolish.  We don't need her and we don't need an establishment pick for the nominee.  It's time to unite.

Florida Governor Rick Scott understands that the Republican Party needs to come together to beat Hillary Clinton in November.  Today he gave all who love America an important message on his Facebook page:



For those who are set on not supporting Trump, even if it means supporting Hillary or a 3rd party candidate, it's time to understand that Rush Limbaugh is right when he says the positives with Trump far outweigh the negatives.  People need to remember that we have not had a candidate who will fight for the American voters since Ronald Reagan.  We know Trump will fight.  And we know he won't be politically correct in dealing with Hillary.  Mike Huckabee, who has fought the Clintons in his own elections of the past says that Hillary has the ride of her life coming in dealing with Trump.

People who say that Trump doesn't win against Hillary in the polls are making some mistakes.  They are only looking at some polls.  There are a number of them that show Trump would win.  But the more important point is that they said the same thing about Trump last spring before he announced his candidacy.  But a month after he got in the race everything changed.  Until he is actually running in the general election against Hillary the voters won't really give much usable information to the pollsters.  He most likely will do in the general election against Hillary just what he's done in the primaries against all his Republican rivals.

The future of America is at stake.  Under the Democrats our constitutional rights have been eroded more and more each year.  And the GOP establishment has helped them every step of the way.  If Hillary is elected there will be no stopping her from taking away more rights and there won't be another chance to turn America back.

America, it's time to unite and win!
