The GOP presidential debate, the second of the current election cycle, will begin at 6 p.m. PT. Fox Business Network is cohosting the debate with the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Institute. 

“What better place than this place, a place that was rooted in the success of the presidency of Ronald Reagan to have a presidential debate,” David Trulio, president and CEO of the Reagan Foundation and Institute, said to media at the Ventura County venue on Wednesday.

CalCoastNews, approved media for the event, will report on the debate from the Reagan Library.

A wonderful opportunity to watch which one of these individuals will lead us out the chaotic mess this current regime of brain dead idiots has created. Can’t wait to take my seat.

I think Christie or Haley would make good presidents. The rest are, as you would say, brain dead, especially Ramaswamy. But, it’s an exercise in futility considering the latest polls have Trump leading by nearly 40%. With appeals and other legal shenanigans he will be running against Joe Biden at this time next year. And if fuel prices remain as high as they are now Trump will win and America will enter a very dark place.

I don’t think it can get any darker than it is right now A T.

DJT has already shown what he as President can do not for just a few, but for the whole country. I don’t understand how anyone cannot want America to be great again.

I don’t understand”

Haley? You mean Nimarata Nikki Randhawa Haley?

We need to see that birth certificate.


What are you hinting at?

Haley is her married name. She was born in Bamberg South Carolina, and graduated from Clemson (go tigers!). Her father was a biology professor at Voorhees, an HBC. Her mother has a Masters in education, a was teacher at local Bamburg schools, before opening and operating a fashion boutique for 32 years.

She faced discrimination growing up, since being the first Indian family in Bamburg SC, she didn’t fit the white or black molds. Her family is Sikh, but she has embraced her husband’s Methodist church.

Oh…didn’t see the sarcasm tag. Sorry.

What are you hinting at?” More BS from the gop in 2024.

Lol, I did not vote for party that started all of the fraudulent “birth certificate” bullshit. Swiftboat, birth certs, her emails, laptop lies and more. Fruit of the same tree.

Oh, did not see the easily triggered tag, sorry.

PS. watch the impeachment hearings it’s on now, it’s like watching racoons wash cotton candy, lol.

“and America will enter a very dark place.” Perhaps our powers of observation are so poor that many of us do not realize we are already there. The only thing that will “fix” our current government is revolution.

“very dark place” … “revolution”. You have never been anywhere close to a revolution or very dark place. If the USA is so bad, you should leave. Live somewhere that makes you happy.

Just look at New Jersey to know where Christie would lead us. us

A lot of Republicans don’t believe in the policies and values of Reagan. What once was a grand party is now a cult around a single person who can’t be bothered to even show up. Very disappointing.

I hope they all drink their fill of that Rocketdyne flavored Simi Valley water…
