Most years they show up at the end of October into early November. Just hope this one was lost and not trying to escape early.

He's outside the political box but kind of like Hillary, a lot of the country hates them or doesn't trust them and really why would they? Seems like now more than ever would be the year for a 3rd party to step up but with this 2 party monopoly and 2 party media we won't get an honest answer until the votes are counted. A long shot for sure but things are shaping up nicely for a lot of people to jump to a 3rd party.
It could be said that Trump is actually a third party candidate, who is taking on the two establishment parties one at a time rather than both at once like Gary Johnson. Sort of like a fight against two opponents. Take out one first then fight the other.
Trump was pretty clearly not a part of the Republican Party establishment when he declared his candidacy. He was opposed by all of the other candidates as well as the Party apparatus. But now they have lost and are faced with losing their influence if they don't support the nominee.
Gary Johnson, on the other hand, chose to go the traditional third party route and take on the whole establishment at the same time, an endeavor that is doomed. Even Ross Perot or Ralph Nader couldn't pull it off.
It was Trump who had the the insight to realize that he could inject himself into the cluster thing that was the Republican nominating process and with his money, media savvy, and recognition get the nomination.
That's how it has to be done these days. And it may have been a unique opportunity. Next time the Republicans will probably change their process to be rigged like the Dems did after the McGovern debacle, especially if Trump loses.

Scrapes or rubs? I can see rubbing some velvet off around now but scrapes already?
I have a couple of spots where scrapes are opened up every year by opening weekend bow in mid Sept, they aren't easy to find but they are out there.
