Now, Lou Lavely, the principal of Travelers Rest High School in South Carolina, banned the American flag at the school's football games, claiming it "could" be used to taunt opposing teams that have a large Hispanic enrollment.
Lavely claims that he was preventing the flag from being used in an improper "taunting," unsportsmanlike manner, and his decision was made in the interest of "the safety and well-being of all in attendance at school events."
Patriotic students attempting to enter the stadium with the American flag were denied entry, sparking an outrage on the school's facebook page, and forcing the principal to reverse his decision.
One Travelers Rest student, Hunter Ballew, who was denied entry, said the principal was trying to "strip young Americans the right to proudly boast this Nation's flag."
The patriots in the Travelers Rest community should attend the next School Board meeting, loudly demanding that Mr. Lavely be fired!
Removing Confederate Statues May Cost Virginia City $700K
Officials deciding whether Charlottesville should remove two prominent Confederate monuments have learned that the proposed moves would cost a combined $700,000.
The Daily Progress reports that a report released Thursday by city staff estimates that removing the statues of Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson would cost $330,000 and $370,000, respectively.
If the council chooses to move the statues, the report says the city could either ask the General Assembly for permission or bypass lawmakers and potentially face a lawsuit.
Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer announced that he would create a task force to review the issue.
Both statues were erected in the 1920s.
Virginia Court Won't Hear Danville Confederate Flag Appeal
The Virginia Supreme Court will not rehear a challenge to the City of Danville's decision to remove the Confederate flag from a monument at Sutherlin Mansion.
A circuit court judge in October dismissed the Heritage Preservation Association's lawsuit against the Danville City Council over its ordinance permitting only U.S., state and city flags to be flown on flagpoles owned by the city. Danville police removed the Confederate flag from the grounds of the city-owned mansion after the ordinance was adopted in August.
The Virginia Supreme Court affirmed the judge's decision in June. Local news media outlets report that the court refused earlier this month to rehear the case.
City Attorney Clarke Whitfield says he's pleased the Supreme Court found no problems with the city's ordinance.
LIBERALS DEMAND APOLOGY FOR FLAG
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant is under fire for refusing to remove the Confederate emblem from Mississippi's state flag. Instead, he declared October "Racial Reconciliation Month."
Thursday, liberal activists held a press conference on the capitol steps in Jackson demanding an apology.
Community activist Duvalier Malone says he doesn't think he's going to get an apology from Governor Bryant but he's asking for one anyway. Why Because Malone knows he gains national attention, especially by the presidential candidates. The Confederate flag is an issue Hillary Clinton's campaign has already taken an interest in. This week, WikiLeaks released e-mails from her campaign dating back to last summer where campaign members discussed the Confederate emblem and whether it is strictly a flag issue or one that should include other Confederate symbols as well.
"Being that it is on Hillary Clinton's agenda, on her radar, I am so excited because we need help in the state of Mississippi," says Malone.
We have reached out to Governor Bryant's office about whether or not he plans to issue an apology. We haven't heard back yet.
Leaked Emails Show Hillary Insulting the Entire South
Apparently, close aides to Hillary Clinton's campaign still view southern states as part of the Confederacy. Newly leaked emails provide a unique insight into how liberal aides to the presidential nominee look down on southerners.
In an email to Neera Tanden, who runs the liberal "think" tank the Center for American Progress, Hillary's campaign chairman John Podesta comments on the Miss America pageant. Podesta complains about a number of finalists coming from the CSA, or Confederate States of America. "Do you think it's weird that of the 15 finalists in Miss America, 10 came from the 11 states of the CSA?" he asked Tanden.
Tanden, who is widely speculated to have a future role in any Clinton presidency, sneered at the pageant as being held to honor the "confederacy," a clear shot that those watching and those participating are all a bunch of sexist, hillbilly racists.
"Not at all," she responded. "I would imagine the only people who watch it are from the confederacy and by now they know that so they've rigged the thing in their honor."
Hillary has recently ripped Donald Trump for disparaging comments he made about a former Miss America contestant.
These comments seem to disparage the entire Miss America audience as backwater, Confederate-era racists.
Hillary herself has a word for that ... Can't quite seem to recall exactly what it was. Oh yea ...
After asking who exactly still refers to the south as the Confederate States of America, one social media user said this email exchange "shows me the level of contempt in which huge numbers of Americans are held by Team Hillary."
Is it any surprise?
TRUMP ACCUSED OF BEING A CONFEDERATE SECESSIONIST
Rice University Professor and renowned Bill and Hillary Clinton scholar Dr. Douglas Brinkley was quoted in Thursday's New York Times as having said, "I haven't seen it since 1860, this threat of delegitimizing the federal government, and Trump is trying to say our entire government is corrupt and the whole system is rigged.... that's a secessionist, revolutionary motif. That's someone trying to topple the apple cart entirely."
Fellow Republicans have called on Dan Johnson to drop out of the race after he vowed to "make Kentucky great again."
A Republican candidate for Kentucky's House of Representatives has expressed no remorse for a series of posts on his Facebook page.
Johnson was caught posting a picture of President Ronald Reagan bottle-feeding a chimpanzee with the caption, "Rare photo of Ronald Reagan babysitting Barack Obama in early 1962."
Johnson denied these photos were racist and in fact said that not posting negative photos about the Obamas would be racist.
"I looked this up. There has been no president that hasn't had that scrutiny. Not one. I think it would be racist not to do the same for President Obama as we've done for every other president," he said in an interview with WDRB News.
In addition, Johnson also posted photos of the Confederate flag and memes that call for a ban of Islam in America.
Last week, Johnson said he has no intention of dropping out of the race, despite calls from numerous Kentucky Republicans. Rather, he said, he will challenge political correctness and "the status quo."
"There's a need for change in Frankfort ... somebody needs to take a sledgehammer to the status quo - and I'm that person," he said. "I'm looking forward to it."
Johnson proudly compared himself to Trump.
"If anybody is watching the news, the Republican Party has asked a few people to drop out of this race during this season," he said. "For the record, Donald Trump, that's running for the Republican Party, has been asked to drop out, and thank God he didn't."
He also invoked Trump's campaign slogan.
"I'm that guy to take that sledgehammer - to make Bullitt County great again, to make Kentucky great again," he said. "I'm willing to do the job."
When questioned about his Confederate flag postings, Johnson said, "That flag was for state rights. The reason it is under attack now is we're being attacked as state rights and constitutionalists. We are being attacked."
A statement on behalf of the Republican Party, released by Chairman Mac Brown, says, in part, "Dan Johnson's comments and social media posts are outrageous and have no place in today's political discourse. They represent the rankest sort of prejudice present in our society and do not in any way, shape or form represent the views of the Republican Party of Kentucky or the many fine candidates representing us on the ballot this November."
Tres Watson, communications director for the Republican Party of Kentucky, said free speech does not equal the right to post comments such as Johnson's. "We have to not only understand what our rights are as Americans, especially when it comes to free speech, [but] have to show good judgment when exercising them," he said.
Ontario, Canada Fair Vendors told to stop selling Confederate Flags
Justin Erdman said he was at the annual fall fair on Saturday night from 7:30 p.m. until closing time, and something he saw there surprised him. "Several vendors had Confederate battle flags in their wares - one in Building 5 featured them prominently at the cash register. Others had them emblazoned on hats and shirts with the word 'Rebel' over top," Erdman said. "All the fair has to do is issue an order to vendors. Simple. But I haven't heard any response from the fair," he said, referencing tweets he'd directed at the fair's twitter account on Saturday night and Sunday morning.
George Araujo, the fair's general manager, told the CBC on Sunday afternoon that they had not seen Erdman's tweets. Araujo said he was not aware of the Confederate flag merchandise, but said he would investigate and make sure anything violating their regulations is removed. "We do have regulations against anything offensive," Araujo said, "and we'll have to take a look and see if that qualifies."
Asked if the Confederate flag would qualify as offensive, Araujo said, "It would depend on how it's displayed or how it's being used. I haven't seen it, so I can't comment on that."
However, Araujo later informed the CBC that "we did do a look around our grounds, and we did find a couple of articles that we found objectionable that incorporated the Confederate flag design, and we required that the vendors remove them from display for sale." Those items were hats and mini-flags available from two separate vendors.
Controversy about the flag in the Hamilton area is not new - a now-shuttered barbecue restaurant called Hillbilly Heaven in the city's International Village displayed and later removed the flag in 2013.
A soldier buried under the wrong name 154 years ago now lies under a corrected headstone at Camp Chase Confederate Cemetery.
I wrote in August about Augustus Beckmann, a Confederate States Army soldier who was mortally wounded in the Battle of Shiloh on April 7, 1862, and eventually buried in the historic cemetery on Sullivant Avenue on the West Side.
Beckmann was misidentified shortly after his death at Camp Dennison, a Union prison camp near Cincinnati. The mistake followed his remains when they were moved in 1869 from Camp Dennison, along with those of other Confederate soldiers, and reinterred at Camp Chase.
Beckmann was buried under stone 2140, which identified him as A. Bergman, Co. C, Texas Rangers.
The mistake was brought to the attention of the National Cemetery Administration earlier this year by Gregory Beckman, a high school teacher from California who was researching his family tree. He had tracked the German side of his family to Texas, where three Beckmann brothers settled in the mid-1800s. Two of them, William and Augustus, eventually joined the Confederacy.
Both were wounded at Shiloh and separated. William survived the war and settled in Mississippi but likely never learned the details of his brother's fate. Greg Beckman, whose family eventually dropped the second "n" from their last name, is Williams's great-great-grandson.
Greg Beckman said Richard Hoffman of the Hilltop Historical Society alerted him that Augustus' new stone was in place. Hoffman placed a Confederate flag beside the stone and sent pictures of it to Beckman. The stone now reads:
2 Texas Inf.
Greg Beckman, who teaches government at El Dorado High School in Placentia, continues to document his family history to pass on to his relatives. He has tracked the Beckmann brothers back to a region of present-day Germany, where the trail has gone cold.
He hopes to visit Camp Chase to see the new stone.
"When I saw the corrected headstone, I felt both pride and a sense of accomplishment," he said in an email this week. "I'm glad that Augustus can now rest in peace knowing that the corrected headstone truly identifies who he is."
We have a Men's t-shirt, Women's t-shirt, coffee mug, and tote-bag.

Hillary's Vision for America
by Al Benson, Jr.
Pat Buchanan had an interesting article on www.lewrockwell.com ;for October 12th in which he discussed the recent second presidential debate and the "moderators" (read that surrogate debaters for Hillary) failure to ask the right questions. Of course, if the truth were known, they were questions they would shy away from dealing with because they would draw attention to Hillary's One World Government mindset and that is the last thing they want to bring to the public's attention. Why is that, the naive might ask? Because they share Hillary's worldview in that area, that's why.
Pat made some cogent observations when he asked: "How could the moderators have ignored that other leak of last week, of Clinton's speech to Brazilian bankers where she confessed she 'dreams' of a hemispheric common market with open trade and open borders." He continued: "If the quote is accurate, and Clinton has not denied it, then she was saying she dreams of a future when the United States ceases to exist as a separate, sovereign and independent nation. She envisions not just a North American Union evolving out of NAFTA but a merger of all the nations, North, South and Central America, with all borders erased and people moving freely from one place to another within a hemispheric super-state." This is yet one more story the major media and the bosses that control it have deemed that the average American does not need to be aware of. So just ignore it.
All the moderators really wanted to deal with for the evening was Trump and that eleven year old tape and all other subjects were supposed to pale into insignificance. And Hillary would have been quite content to remain there also. This was supposed to be the evening that Trump was destroyed and his presidential possibilities probably handed over to one of the Council on Foreign Relations political hacks that he defeated in the primaries. Trump's bringing out for the audience four of the women that William Jefferson Clinton was accused of raping, one of which he paid a huge settlement to in order to keep it out of court, sort of put a little damper on that. But Trump's destruction was something the Republican Establishment really looked forward to because they never wanted Trump in the beginning. What they had really planned on was for one of the CFR-controlled hacks that he beat out to, somehow, be reinstated as a possible candidate again, didn't make any difference which one because they were all prepared to play the One World Government game, with the possible exception of Rand Paul. Albeit the rhetoric would have been a little different from one to the other, but the results for America would have been the same with any or all of them. But, then, I still think the initial plan was for Hillary to trounce whichever one was chosen to be the "loyal opposition."
After all the planned fuss over Trump's old tape broke, a whole bunch of gutless wonders calling themselves Republicans jumped ship and loudly asserted that for moral reasons they could not support Trump any longer--all the way from the Speaker of the House to the august (and I use the word loosely) Senator from Arizona. One thing folks, especially in the South and West need to start realizing--the Republican Party is utterly corrupt. It has been, like the Democratic Party, thoroughly co-opted by the CFR/Trilateralist cabal and those that run it are high in the echelons of the One World Government crowd. Their vision for "Amerika" is the same as Hillary's vision, and no matter how much they prattle about being "the party of small government" it is all a sham. I trust most of them about as far as I trust Bill Clinton and his presidentially-minded spouse.
The Republican Establishment never wanted Trump and they were almost to the point of choking when they had to pretend they did. They would have jumped at any possible means of scuttling Trump's candidacy so they could support Hillary (covertly of course). All I can say is that if this is the "best" the Republicans can do, who even needs the Democrats? There is no real difference between the two parties except the labels put there to confuse a slow-minded electorate.
As for that eleven year old Trump tape, the man he said all this stuff to, and who egged him on to say it, was Billy Bush. That surname ring any bells? It should. George Bush 1 is Billy's uncle and George Bush 2 and Jeb Bush are his cousins. The Bush Dynasty long ago stated up front that there was no way they could support Trump. He didn't have "New World Order" credentials.
Do you begin to see the possibility of connecting just a few dots here?
Interesting that one of the Bush Clan just happened to get this tape leaked at this critical time. Coincidence, just pure coincidence, right??? I notice that Billy has now been suspended from NBC for his part in this. Is he on the way out because his job there was done or has he been thrown under the bus after it was done?
I've said this before but it bears repeating. If most folks knew the real history of the Republican Party they would realize that its foundations are anything but conservative. To learn about the true history of the Republican Party read two books, Lincoln's Marxists, by Donnie Kennedy and myself, and To The Victor Go the Myths and Monuments by Arthur R. Thompson. These will give you a pretty good idea of the origins of the Republican Party. What goes on today is of the same caliber as what Lincoln and his friends did back in the 1860s. So please, stop looking at the Republican Party as our "national savior"--an office only Jesus Christ can fulfill.
The Republican Establishment will work to sell you out just as quick as Hillary will--because their loyalty to the New World Order is exactly the same as Hillary's
RIO DE JANEIRO - Hundreds of thousands of people in the south of Brazil have voted in an unofficial plebiscite to separate from South America's biggest nation and form their own country, organizers of the ballot said.
Counting of the 617,000 votes cast on Oct. 1 in the "Plebisul" finished on Tuesday. Organizers said 96 percent had voted to create a new country out of Brazil's three most southern states, arguing they pay too much in taxes to the central government and get too little in return.
Brazilian media reported ballot boxes had been set up in cities throughout the region for the vote, which occurred the day before nationwide elections for mayors and city councils. The message sent was unmistakable. "We in the south have the conditions to sustain ourselves and generate riches. Today we generate a mountain of riches in taxes and benefits which are exported, and there is no counterpart," said José Gonçalves, a business manager voting in favor of independence in the southern city of Porto Alegre, in an interview posted on YouTube by the city's Jornal do Comércio newspaper.
The results come on the back of the local elections, marked by widespread absenteeism and rejection of traditional politicians. Brazil is reeling from the controversial impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff this year and revelations that many members of her Workers' Party and its political allies were involved in a graft scandal at state-run oil company Petrobras.
Celso Deucher, general coordinator of the Plebisul campaign, said Wednesday that the vote had sent a "resounding message" to politicians in Brasilia, the capital. "If Brasilia knows how to understand what we are saying, certainly Brazil will not be the same from today," said Deucher, in a video posted on YouTube.
Deucher, one of the intellectual leaders of the movement called The South Is My Country, cited citizens' frustration with corruption as a reason so many voted to leave Brazil.
"Be ashamed. We don't accept your behavior," he told politicians in his address, adding that voters would rather be run by their former colonial masters than its current leaders. "We prefer to return to Portugal than pay so dearly for continuing to be Brazilians," he said.
The south of Brazil was colonized by immigrants from Italy, Portugal and Germany, and many take pride in a European sense of organization. It is one of Brazil's richest regions, and organizers of the campaign have been able to capitalize on frustration that tax money goes to poorer regions in the northeast - where the population has more black and mixed-race people and slavery was more prevalent from the 16th to 19th centuries.
According to government figures, in July, Bahia state in Brazil's northeast, which has a population of 15 million people, paid less than half the federal taxes of Rio Grande do Sul, in the south, which has a population of 11 million people.
There are also cultural differences between the regions. In some towns in the south, German is still spoken. A version of Germany's famous Oktoberfest beer festival is held every year in Blumenau, a city in the state of Santa Catarina.
In the YouTube video, Celso Deucher, general coordinator of the Plebisul campaign, said organizers planned another plebiscite in September 2017 and hoped to put 3 million voters on the street. "The south is our country," he concluded. "Long live the free South!"

Up here in North Central Missouri we are fixing up our monuments and respect all Military men & women for there sacrifice. Moberly, Missouri in Randolph county has very nice large monuments in the City Park to Veterans of every conflict since the WBTS.

I don't care if Donald Trump discloses his tax return information or not. Anything about his personal life does not matter a lot to me. We have grown used to having substandard candidates in this Country at all levels of government, anyway. I don't care about the behavior of his campaign managers. It is virtually irrelevant to me who he insults.
I like Mike Pence but even that choice by Trump is of minor consequence to me. I refuse to watch the debates. What I do appreciate about Trump are some of the people he upsets and offends - most need it.
Rarely can I recall, voting "for" someone. Usually, I am casting a ballot against a candidate or for the lesser of two evils and that is the case again, this year. Regardless of who the Republican Presidential candidate rose to be, I knew all along that I would vote for them if they ran against Hillary Clinton. I could not bear the accusing witness of my conscience otherwise.
The scurrilous media can write all they want about Trump, liberals can rant and rave - it is all just a gusty breeze that I heed not. I see efforts of character assassination for what they are. I have no particular regard nor affection for Trump so it matters little who he alienates, including me. Trump may not win, and may not even want to; but all I need to know to vote for him is that He ain't Hillary.
John Merlin sends the following:
To me at least, as almost dead as the moribund Republican Party is.
Now that the GOP elites have met and are shedding their support for their
party's won legitimate nominee, it's time for us to act. The GOP's true "light blue" color exposed, their common cause with Democratic elites and globalists are now in plain sight for all to see.
This has confirmed the longstanding rumors of a US "Uniparty" where the Democrats and Republicans may appear to be TWO separate coins but in reality are two sides of the SAME coin.
The greatest legacy Donald Trump could leave this nation beyond exposing these phony parties, fake 'media,' their greedy funders, et al would be for him to call upon pro-American Americans to form a new political party in order to counter the anti-American policies of the Uniparty. That is, to form in name and motivation and outlook, an AMERICAN Party; a party that actual Americans can rally around. This is the perfect time to do it. Tens of millions of former Republicans would readily leave Paul Ryan-O and the rest of the RINOS behind and join the American Party.
I hope Mr. Trump will consider doing this, whether he wins or loses the upcoming election. For the future of this nation, it MUST be done.
Also from Merlin:
So, Joyce Behar laughingly calls rape victims "tramps" and her brain dead audience claps.
Now, we have Obama doing this, in NC yesterday and the same type of soulless brain dead people appluad. Just more proof. Always remember: Progressive liberals are evil personified.
The questions about his contribution to the federal coffers have emerged because he has steadfastly refused to release his tax returns while under audit. He did say he would release the returns against the advise of his lawyers if Clinton were to provide the tens of thousands of emails deleted from her private system during her tenure as Secretary of State.
FROM CNN WEBSITE
After the debate, Trump told CNN's Jim Acosta: "Of course I've paid federal taxes."
His total income, however, is difficult to nail down.
Trump touted his financial disclosure forms, and although they are lengthy, they offer less than a full picture.
In his forms, Trump declared that he earned $611 million between January 2015 and mid-May 2016. However, it is difficult to tell what form his varied sources of reported income amount to, and whether he is conflating revenues with income.
The Wall Street Journal estimated his pretax income over 19 months in 2014 and 2015 would have been $160 million, so for speculative purposes, let's use that total and assume it's all "passive income," like an owner would collect vis-à-vis rents.
Using H&R Block's tax calculator, someone with a $160 million income could owe $69,370,931 in federal taxes.
That's a lot -- and it would be even more with the considerable state and local taxes a New York City resident would have to pay.
Where would all this hypothetical tax money go if and when the government collected it?
Clinton rattled off plenty of places at the debate. "If he's paid 0, that means 0 for troops, 0 for vets, 0 for schools or health," Clinton said.
The White House has its own tool to show taxpayers what it says their money is going to.
A speculative "taxpayer receipt" for Trump during the most recent fiscal year showed his money would have gone approximately:
$19.1 million to healthcare
$16.6 million to defense
$12.6 million to "job and family security" (e.g. federal and military retirement programs, food assistance like SNAP, Temporary Assistance to Needy Families, or TANF)
$6.3 million paying down interest on the national debt
$4.1 million for veterans benefits
$3.6 million education
$1.4 million for immigration and law enforcement
$1.3 million for foreign aid and other international affairs
$1.1 million for energy and environmental considerations
$783,891 for NASA and other scientific endeavors
$672,898 for agriculture
$2.9 million for everything else, including disaster relief, community development and the milieu of other government programs.
That's a lot, but looking back, this would be just a drop in the federal bucket. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities said the federal government spent $3.7 trillion in 2015. Not counting new borrowing, $3.2 trillion of that came from federal revenues.
Most of the federal budget is focused on three areas: health care, social security and defense. The rest goes to a mish-mash of investments, benefits and safety net programs. Some of these include outlays for research, education and veterans. The remaining sliver goes to paying interest on the country's debt.
AMISH ENDORSE TRUMP
The Amish didn't watch Donald Trump during the debates, and they aren't reading his tweets. They also don't usually cast ballots, as it's strongly discouraged among their community, but that's not stopping a new PAC from getting out the vote.
Amish PAC's website says it's the "The first Super PAC dedicated to getting plain voters to the polls," using the term "plain" to refer to the Amish people and their lifestyle. But instead of airing smear campaign commercials or spreading anti-Hillary Clinton rhetoric on Fox News, Amish PAC is going old school with newspapers and billboards.
The two-pronged approach has one purpose: to bring a tiny but deeply conservative bloc of voters to the polls in two key states, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
According to the committee, each state has approximately 60,000 Amish residents. Even a small jump in Amish voter turnout - 5 percent, the group says - could be the difference between a Republican and Democratic president come January.
If Trump and the "plain people" seem like strange bedfellows, they're really not.
The Amish and other Anabaptist groups endorse basic Christian beliefs, but have been shaped by a "martyr tradition," according to Elizabethtown College. They preach loving their enemies and forgiving insults, practicing pacifism and nonresistance.
That said, when the Amish do cast their ballots, they vote for their individual rights, less government and to protect their right to bear arms, according to the committee.
Amish PAC has deep ties to the Republican Party. It was founded by an alumnus of a pro-Ben Carson super PAC, an ex-Amish donor to that super PAC and an employee of Gingrich Productions, NBC News reports. Ben Walters, a former Amishman of Lancaster, is a former fundraiser for the pro-Carson 2016 Committee and now serves as fundraising counsel to Amish PAC.
The committee is against same-sex marriage, and wants to protect religious freedom and gun ownership rights, spokesman Ben told Newsworks. "The Amish are a very conservative community on all the issues of the day," King said. "It comes down to who's going to most allow the country to function like it has functioned. The Amish might not agree with the personality and character of Donald Trump, but the alternative is far worse."
Church elders often discourage its members from participating in voting, as it's viewed as a modern practice but Jeremiah Raber, a former "Breaking Amish" cast member, told PennLive the Amish will definitely be voting this year. "I can promise you this time around the Amish will be out in full force voting for president," Raber said. "And I can almost guarantee you that the Amish will be voting for Donald Trump. Because they vote for what is right."
In 2004, George W. Bush visited Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, and Holmes County, Ohio, in an attempt to woo Amish and Mennonite voters in his re-election bid. Approximately 43 percent of Holmes County Amish were registered to vote in 2004; only 13 percent actually did so, with the majority selecting Bush. That fall, approximately 10,350 Amish adults in Lancaster County were eligible to register and vote. One-tenth of that, approximately 1,342, actually voted, according to PennLive - the majority of whom supported Bush.
Bush also famously squeaked by Al Gore in 2000 with a mere 537 vote margin. So to Amish PAC, registering even 1,000 voters and helping them get to polls could make or break Trump's campaign.
