Donald Trump Will Lose the Election, and It Won't Be Pretty. GQ Editor-in-Chief Jim Nelson has some good news and some bad news. Either way, you should definitely vote. Brace yourself. I hate to say all of this, especially so close to Halloween, but what happens after Election Day may be more terrifying than what came before it. Because Donald Trump will go. But he will not go easy. Read more at

Years ago, I heard a young reporter ask an old editorial writer what the difference was between Republicans and Democrats. The old guy said, "Democrats love big government, preferably controlled by and run from Washington. Republicans are in favor of smaller, less intrusive government, and local control," he said, and then paused. "Except, that is, when they're not." The young reporter asked when that was. "Whenever local government does something they don't want it to do," the old cynic said. See article by Jack Lessenberry

Ironic that Trump still running WITH SUPPORT NO LESS. Trump should be suspended from the human race. Jeanne Korsch

WHAT WAS THE OCDP THINKING IN ENDORSING VICTORIA VALENTINE? The Free Press endorsed LORIE SAVIN for Oakland County Circuit Court!!! "Savin, 46, of West Bloomfield has spent more than 13 years as a referee in the family court division she seeks to join. She regularly conducts hearings involving the same issues that come before family court judges, and enjoys a reputation as a fair and hardworking mediator in difficult cases. A native of Royal Oak, she spent her early career representing indigent clients in Missouri and Kansas. Her specialized experience makes LORIE SAVIN the superior voice for this circuit court seat." Linda Samelson

Michael Stack is endorsed by the Free Press. This is great news as Michael battles against the DeVos behemoth. Reported in the Free Press yesterday that Klint Kesto, R-39, has raised $176,310 from: DeVos family: $9,000; Michigan Beer & Wine Wholesalers Assoociation PAC $3,500; Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan PAC: $2,600. Please do all you can to support Mike, a progressive candidate who will work for "we the people" and not corporations. Linda Samelson
