Does anyone in Mississippi really know the real Mike Espy? Espy and Jason Shelton saw the opportunity to get the democratic party cash to run against Cindy Smith and off course the party picked Espy instead of rhe unknown Shelton. Mississippi will send Cindy and Roger back to Washington for 6 more years to support out great President fight the liberal media and control the senate and supreme court. Who will be Trump’s next pick for the old supreme court justice who should retire before she dies?

Cindy Smith gets the voters out and wins her senator seat by hard work. Mike Espy is a racist who will do anything to get back to Washington and take some more bribes?

Cindy Smith has fired up the voters in Mississippi. Chris McDaniel did not have the millions to spend on his wasted campaign for senator. McDaniel could have beat Roger Wicker hands down but his handlers made the mistake of splitting the republican vote putting Espy in the run off. Cindy Smith and Roger will be the Zmississippi senators helping Trump in his second term. Mike Espy is npjudt another Clinton tag alone refilling the swamp with racists slurs against women senators.

We do not need a two party system that does not represent freedom and liberty of our rights. We need independent representatives that voice the major majority of citizens they represent. Not a party line.

The independent party does not have funds paid when filing income taxes like the two party system that has robbed the middle class of any substantial improvement in their working lives. As America shifts to more and more free loaders who have no pride in themselves nor love for their country, the third status of Americans will become the front page news in Europe and Asia and the oil producing countries with sand in their eyes. The Obama and Clintons are the biggest lobbyists in America but of course Trent Lott is still trading favors.

You do not get America back by supporting big government and them making laws to back your beliefs.

Oh my God! Liberals want to feed unplanned and unwanted children? How horrible!!! How absolutely despicable of them! Imagine wanting to give nourishment to underprivileged children! Absolutely unforgivable and downright ungodly!! How could they? At least we have Trump to put a stop to these aberrations. Why, those hungry children probably aren't even white! Can you imagine? Damn those liberals!!

It's funny how you crackas hate the government, but in order to get back to the America you want, which is crackas doing absolutely nothing but being white in order to survive, you need Black Codes, segregation, and government sponsored terrorism! As for that lice infested, pale bytch who thinks lynching is cool, eff her. Her Reconstruction Era politics are effective for galvanizing low iq crackas to vote for her. Meanwhile, Mississippi is still the poorest, dumbest state in America!

That's why we need to deter liberals from moving out of the rat infested, smoggy cities and into our red states. They always thought these states were racist and now they are moving to them in droves and this is part of the problem.

It is poor because it wants handouts. Wealth starts with creative hard work. It does not happen with government laws favoring any group or religion. For example the laws against cloning. Medical research is the cornerstone of wealth.

Sending people away will not improve the standard of living. It does not matter people's beliefs or opinions are what matters is what the contribute to humanity. You can not improve the standard of living taking handouts. Some one loses when someone gains without improved productivity.

Before they move they need to get rid of the rats because you have to leave things better than when you got there. Without resources no one should move as they created a world of declining resources by having children they can not afford to provide for.

Pinkett Smith said that she is biased — particularly against blonde-haired white women.

“I have to admit I’m guilty to that to a certain degree, because I do have my own biases — specifically to blonde women,” Pinkett Smith admitted.“Blonde hair on white women just triggers me.
