I agree with that, and if it doesn't work we won't be any worse off than if we voted in one of the other candidates. We know what they will do, and that doesn't look good.
Those are the things Trump says he is going to do, but I'm not sure he really has the know-how or the humility to actually make them happen.
Trump has so many things in common with fascism that it's frightening. That is radical authoritarian nationalism. Quoting Musolini in his tweets, using a scapegoat , the Muslims and imigrants to blame everything. Heil Trump...
Palin did the same thing for McCain - stirred up conservative extremists. I liked him and WANTED to vote for him; but I could not vote for her. Could not. Gender is irrelevant. Trump's campaign mirrors what his presidency would be like. Yeah, scary.
I refer you to this video of Trump supporters agreeing with quotes they think come from Trump but actually come from Hitler. And you don't find this deeply troubling? Amazing.
What are you trying to prove by making these implications?
If you don't like Trump, then don't vote for him, it is as simple as that.
How about more issues, and less mud.
It's not implication, it's history rhyming. And you would have more credibility if you would find a Clinton basher and tell them less mud. There are plenty of them, I'll be waiting.Latest is Trump making her out to be a dog or something.Real classy.
I'm not trying to "imply" anything. I'm stating clearly that Trump is a bigot, misogynist, liar, rabble-rousing demagogue, who fits the psychological profile of a psychopath. As President of the U.S. he would be disaster for America and the world.
I'd laugh. America needs to take the thumb out and stop with the 40% corp tax. They blame the likes of Ireland for having low taxes? It's the one thing trump gets right. But it'll never happen. They preach capitalism, but only for themselves.
to the video about Trump supporters and Hitler... you could make that video for any candidate! Also do you think they only asked those people. Or did they have to ask a ton?! Please don't use stuff like that to make a decision.
Ermmm, your guys did. Have you not seen the Tea Party protests with pictures of Obama as Hitler? Someone should have punched them in the face, huh?
im not a teaparty supporter! Also i wasn't defending the teaparty anyways. I was saying, that kinda video could be made about any candidate lol... which your sentence proves my point.
ban can ho
You're forgetting the tax will go up. The rich will become richer and the poor will start starving and dying because they are simply "losers".
. . . Sure, one of his favorite way of covering his massive failures is declaring bankruptcy, and walking away from his self incurred responsibilities!!
Yes, and like Cheney, he took 5 deferments on the draft, but now is all tough talk "torture and worse". He's not out there dealing w the aftermath of his words. Neither are his kids.
Clinton ran to England during the Vietnam War, and Obama never served in the military. So what is your point?
Omg, Sanders is right. Trump is pathological liar. I listened to his phone call with sycophant Chris Matthews. Trump said he spoke with police for half an hour and they told him to cancel rally. This is not true. He must have known it'd be found out!
Machiavellian tactic: draw fear and hatred away from himself to an Other and if no such person can be found, to trump up charges against someone. Maybe that's why name changed from Drumpf to Trump?
Good point. And a bully always loves to play the victim. It's psychopathic behavior. And you can bet no one tells him.
He is a narcissist of the highest order in a country full of low information, low IQ voters. He panders to the worst in people and this country is in for violence if his momentum continues. A Hitler in the making who thinks rules don't apply to him
You are mocking the jews by calling him a Hitler. He isn't going to torture the illegal mexicans... just send them back home!
He treats Muslims like Hitler treated jews. That's the comparison. But he's far from alone on this. Far from it.
He never said he would put muslims in a concentration camp! He said he would stop them from coming in or back to our country! If you read the quran, it incites violence. Also do you not see difference between torture & deportation? Not the same!
Trump's plan for deportation is one of his policies I agree with. We've deported people in decades past and can still do it today! This includes rounding up all who've overstayed their visas and sending them home.
I am no Trump fan, but I actually think he has morphed into this looney tune just in hopes of getting elected. He brands himself as a reality TV mogul, owns the Miss America pageant, and loves to promote his brand left and right.
True sweetpie, can you imagine what will happen when MacDonalds runs the White House ? America as a corporate brand. Gone democracy. Land of fries and ketchup....
Hillary will probably win anyway. Not a fan of Trump, and only lukewarm towards Hillary. In all honestly, Trump is playing it up in hopes of being elected. I like Sanders, but he does not stand a chance, unfortunately. Trump used to support Hillary
People do not vote for black or woman. Otherwise they'd support West and Palin. It's policy. Black and woman are bonus from historical pov. And how come Trumps fans not voting cause he's white male?
I'm sorry I have heard with my own ears and read with my own eyes MANY ppl this election saying it was their duty to elect the first female, and when it was Obama I heard and saw the same thing. Not enough space for more.
Yes,from a historical perspective it is imperative to growth. But I bet they would never cast vote for Carson or Fiorina. Duty aside, it comes down to policy.
Actually for the ones I have seen, it comes down to party. As long as the female or black person is dem then those ppl support them. I wish we as a whole voted on policy, but I don't think majority of voters even know the policies.
That's exactly it. Because there are also people who will never vote for a black man or a woman, but no one ever accuses them of voting "because he's a white man". It's discrimination in its oldest form.
Well I do. I just don't think they are voting because he's white, I think many are actually ignorant enough to believe he will do some good because he says it like it is. He's making racism and being a homophobe cool again.
One of his fans told protestor to go back to Africa. I think lot of its cause he's white. As much as I like Hillary because she's a woman. It's a part and parcel if it all. But only Hil and Obama supporters get treated like color/gender only reason.
You can vote for Sanders if you do not like Hilary. A woman does not mean better. Thatcher was a woman too and she made the gap between poor and rich big time together with Reagan. The source of the crisis we live in today.
I completely agree with you. SAD that this violence inciting clown who hates women is taking this. I cannot wrap my head around those who support this lunatic.
How do you know he disliked poor people before this election? Then the Hillary pawn thing... you say likely? That is a conspiracy theory! Have any proof that LIKELY points in that direction?
1999 interview Trump called people from families who had been poor for generations Morons. "How smart can they be? They're morons.” That's the majority of ppl in my rural county and those same ppl support him.
Annsalo, why do those insulted by Trump support him?
Because they either refuse to admit his wrong doings or are too uninformed to even know what they are. I truly don't understand how so many ppl ignore all the wrong he has done.
I read that and I agree that is wrong what he said! People do change. I know I am a much different person than 10 years ago!
I am not for Trump the politician. When Trump compares the quality of the airports of other countries, selling apartments to Chinese, (he does not have to support women or minorities), but America needs to improve the quality of its infrastructure.
Great speech, but what is the problem with Trump?
Both parties with their professional politicians have caused the country to decline since the 70s, and the decline continues. I don't see that Trump could do worse, the bar is low, & he c do bette
Need more chars. There are several issues I have w/ Donald Trump's candidacy; from his lack of understanding of foreign affairs, trade policy, to his hateful divisive rhetoric. There's a diff. btw saying it how it is vs not caring about what you say.
The democratic and republican party members that have been in congress and the presidency don't understand foreign affairs, trade policy or much of anything. The results are the proof of my statement.
What hateful, divisive Rhetoric?????
It's what Hitler was good at: "We are a great, great nation and don't deserve this humiliation! We will return to our former glory!" and then also "It's the fault of the immigrants" (in this case Jews). Crowds suck this kind of stuff up, it's sad.
Yes it is. They can't even see the correlation between how the Jews were treated then, and how Muslims are treated now. It's glaringly obvious!
The Jews were involved in 911 except maybe as a target of the Muslim Terrorists. FACT
Nah, oded yinon/greater Israel has been planned for decades.Took Bush to agree to do it, because Clinton wouldnt. American and Israeli zionist neocons. Muslims were the scapegoat. As Bibi said, one thing very good for us was 9/11.Break up the ME. NWO
He can call a lot of shots as BH Obama has proven. Don't think Republicans would be unhappy to write just as many "Executive Orders" as BH did. Our government may have a Constitution but is disfunctional.
Amen and cheers, Sheila.
Can I go there now? Please?!??!?
You're welcome. Of course....you have to do all the European paperwork first and after a year in a refugee camp somewhere in the limbo you'll be sent home... Unless you come illegal, which is fine by me. Spain is a bit in a crisis but it's sunny...
I'd love to, but I have to stay here and continue fighting for reason so that my kids and grand kids might have a fighting chance one day. It's discouraging after all these years of "lesser of two evils" ugh.
You're right Christin. Fight locally,without guns, but with a positive and social awareness.
Sorry, but I've tried to learn Spanish twice and don't have the knack. I'm sure Spain is wonderful. I have some ancestry that I suspect came from there.
take care Miz, Maybe Canada is an option as well ;-)
All those guys, finding themselves so important. Def. macho behaviour.
Let's go and have a cup of chocolate...Bet Trump is lousy in making them.
I'm leaving. He is frightening. You see now how Hitler and Mussolini rose. He's a liar and bought and sold.
I think it will be the best place for me! :)
I hate when people compare Trump to Hitler. I bet the people who were in the concentration camps would disagree lol.
Good for you, but not in my country. And comparing anyone with Hitler is sick. That is for those people in the chain that make such comparison.
I can't really navigate thru this ? Someone should write a hub. bye
MzB....No worries. 1 week w/ me & I'll have U spitting out Espanol like U were born there! Pack UR castinettes & sombrero! Christin, U can visit on Holidays!
Our Founders had a healthy respect for the threat fear poses to reason. They knew that, under the right circumstances, fear can trigger the temptation to surrender freedom to a demagogue promising strength and security in return.
It may seem that people are tired of the liberal agenda, and they want change. They may seem like bad people to you, but liberals may seem like bad people to them.
You mean like how we wanted change from Republicans and voted Obama? How'd that work out? We never got to really know. Expect the same in return. Or do the rules change with the political wind?
How can anyone be tired of the liberal agenda when its blocked by conservatives from the start...
And no, the people I'm specifically referring to are quite the bad peoples, from any view point and by any standard. They are a minority though.
Why not go for a more social democratic agenda like the one Bernie Sanders is offering. He will give a change to the money dictated country.
People here have been taught to fear democratic socialism. The corpoate interests that own the 2 parties can't have people start voting for the best interests of the people and cutting into profits. All media is propaganda and people dont research.
Oh no how dare a populist get elected... oh wait thats a good thing, i'm an ordinary person!(: As for other countries... I bet North Korea & China & some other countries with oppressed citizens might actually like Trump as their leader!
True Rupert, Trump would be another Putin. Oppressing all opinions that are against him. No more freedom of speech. All tv will be pro Trump. Rappers be warned, remember Pussy Riot.
I am not rupert if you were talking to me lol and i was being sarcastic I don't think he will oppress free speech. After all he speaks more freely and not PC than any other candidate ever!
And can we all take a moment to realize that Rubio doesn't believe global warming is man made. (Even though now he has dropped out) Like.......bruh
As for not PC, not PC and freedom of speech are different things. Hitler was non PC.
As for freedom of speech I was thinking about tightening up the media even more then is today. McCarthy eat your heart out...
I heard Ramundo on radio today--the reporter Trump told to go back to univision. He said only twice in his life has he had a politician have a bodyguard remove him from asking questions. One was Fidel Castro, the other was Donald Trump.
he wasn't called on & just stood up... that is what most refer to as a heckler!
Mercedes: I didn't know Rubio was a denier of man made global warming. Heck, maybe I was wrong not to vote for him! Oh wait, there was that Gang of Eight thing.....yep, that's why I didn't vote for Rubio.
The reality is more like an Economic DECLINE for 20+ years, salaries for many jobs are the same they were in the 80s. On top of that this 'recovery' you think we have had is a 11 Trillion dollar national Debt in 7 years and 60+ million MORE Welfare
You're calling this an economic recovery? Okay then, fine.
It's the only recovery available with obstructionist tea party at the house and senate. They want to give it all away!
Beautifully written response!
However the concern is that our choice is Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton.
Hillary's part is also checkered with Whitewater and other Clinton scandals.
I wish we had a clearer, honorable, healthier option.
The thing is, we would have Republican house, senate, supreme court and president. I know many are salivating for this, but i have daughters. It would be a nightmare that we can't wake up from. Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue!
I do not think most of us can move to another country if Trump becomes president. I am sure you have seen the slogan - "We survived Bush, you wi... ". Americans have to prepare for war, because he is likely to say anything in a private meeting.
Ahmmmm, no. When I see a guy take glee in hurting others, I don't want him as neighbor, let alone president. Character matters. His is SORELY lacking.
I don't see it. Explain it.
Advocating for torture even it gets no results.
Telling people try not to hurt them, but if you do I'll pay your legal fees. Punch em, knock the crap out if em. Waterboarding and worse. I hear boarding school boys are very sadistic. Detached from the pain inflicted on others. Kill for sport, etc.
Really, you don't have to vote for him. And that is your biggest issue for the presidency. And you are taking the side of the protester, why?
Do you also take the side of the terrorist being water boarded, over the victims of the terrorists, beheaded
War crimes aren't a big issue? Who knew...
And um, not burst your bubble or anything, but i assume most people aren't talking about actual terrorists when it comes to torture. Theyre talking about the non terrorists we've torture to death. Shocking.
I do not support violence, torture, war, racism, misogyny, buying laws, hiding money, scamming people, and telling Americans they should leave on a stretcher if they protest Trump.
The people they tortured has beheaded no one. Not charged. Amoral.
Under your criteria, I don't know who is left to vote for.
What you prioritize is yours, don't make it the biggest issue of the campaign.
911, the US gov left us unprotected from 19 terrorists, isn't that a more important issue, period?
American values are THE issue! I thought you knew that. What else is there? Either we are here to form a more perfect union or not. 9/11 was an inside job. And so far no one had been charged. Values in limbo.
Lol...I'm sure electing a guy who has no qualms about torturing and blowing up civilians will have absolutely no negative impact on the country's future, cuz apparently that's a non issue.
No wonder terrorists want to annihilate us...
OK, I am dizzy, we keep talking about minutia. We did the same thing in 2008, and the economy collapsed, and nobody thought it was important during the year and a half of campaigning. Don't vote for Trump
Now what about the real critical issues?????
You don't get to choose critical issues. You get to have yours, that's all. If you are OK with torture and stifling dissent in America, that's you. It's a critical issue to some. That ok?
Leslie / quit trying to play connect the dots - learn your facts on the benefits we received from water boarding before you speak about it - lives were Saved, again lives were Saved
According to whom? I've read just the opposite. And it happens to be against the law. Plenty of people can justify breaking the law: need money to feed my family for instance.No one tells them you are right--end justifies means.They end up on prison.
Ralph torture does not work, never worked. I can waterboard you and I'm sure you will come up with a list of names that are terrorists, including your friends. It's an inhuman and inefficient way to find the "truth".
I hope that I have stirred up things about this question, because most of the negative comments are simply emotional, factless, biased, party loyal and just hearsay. We are not in grade school, and we shouldn't just parrot what the other kids are say
Didn't think that things hes literally caught on video saying counts as hearsay.
Isn't all that hard to infer his views when he retweets Nazi quotes either...
Bradmaster I think that most people voting for Trump, vote emotionally. Populist politicians are addressing emotions not content. Most of the time negative emotions. Fear sells.
Brad your comments keep harping on "last 24 years". Are you not old enough to remember Reaganomics and the recession of the 1980s? Do you think that Reaganomics was so wonderful?
Miz, the recession of the 80s??? Really? Were our yearly deficits too high? Yes. However, Reagan wasn't mostly to blame for that. His tax cuts brought in tremendous tax revenues. All Congress had to do was cut some spending.
Actually it goes all the way bay to the 79s when the country started its decline that still continues today. The economy is unstable today as it was in 2008, and as in 2008 no one today is considering the economy as a major issue.
Excellent insight and spot on... its a shame so many Americans are so easily manipulated by the Media and how they paint a person. Rather than looking at the issues that are destroying our nation, they focus in on soundbites fed them (no context).
He's letting Heritage Foundation pick Supreme Court justice...I'd say he's on the team.
The SC is a political joke, as is there 5-4 decisions. It may decide the law, but it doesn't resolve the issue brought before it.
Well he will definitely have the balls to do something, but I have a feeling it may not be great. (Just my opinion)
What does "make America great again" actually mean? What does Trump mean by this?
I don't know, when are we going to get that "hope and change"?
How about bringing everyone together to work to make America great again?
Apparently balls are more important then brains.
I am sure he must make America worse.
i love america
bat dong san
Yes and the frightening thing is why does he get so many support. In Europe it's the same extreme populist parties that gain power. Haven't we learned anything where extreme right wing/ fascism can lead us to!
No we haven't. Today is the day our pols genuflect to one of the biggest ones. We learn nothing, only repeat.

Trump got started by following his Dad, but all his money now is from him, not his dad. Thanks for meddling,
UK people were not impressed by being seen as on the same side as Bush Jnr. So anyone that has zero diplomacy and minimal understanding of international issues (i.e. Trump), is a frightening prospect to those who are seen as US allies...
You're right, E-D, Trump's dad gave him a one million dollar loan to start his first business(es). A start that the majority of Americans could never get from family or the government. Did his father have any stake in his other companies to lose?
Not only did he get his father's money, but also his connections.You don't just make it in New York real estate or anything else. And i think his daughter is married to the grandson of the man who gave Trumps dad his start?&Ivanka and Chelsea fri
What is your point? It appears that you know nothing about the man, or NYC/
And I wonder if anyone from hear goes to a UK site to give their opinions?
It's important what we do. As you all so often remind us, America is the most powerful country on earth...it matters what we do. And, as they say, if America catches a cold, the world gets a fever.
It never ceases to amaze me how without facts, or substance people can make these emotional and cheap shot statements. Do you want the US to have the same terrorist target as your country?
Seriously?! BRITAIN is more violent than the US! Do some research. We got guns and we wanna keep em! I don't laugh at the violence in your country... I know ours is terrible and if yours is worse... then God bless you!
But he wants to implement religious law, which is worse. His father thinks he is on a mission from god....and not the nice god either. The hell fire and brimstone one.
Yeah, his dad is a dominionist, and has even been campaigning for him. But - Ted Cruz has never breathed a single word about bringing religious law to America....he's a constitutionalist, and our constitution doesn't work with religious law.
Outlaw abortion. Anti constitition, religious law. This applies to all of them, though. They're all anti constitutionalists.
At what point is Abortion putting a human to death? and at what point is it not? The only answer to that ? was avoided by the SC in Roe V Wade.
LMAO!! Leslie.."and not the nice god either." You just cracked me up. I haven't laughed this hard at one simple statement in months! Thanks, I needed that..LOL..I'm still laughing. Weird how some things just strike me as hilarious!
The people on welfare have had their representation. They have abused the system. That is why the democrats have a better chance. They please the people who don't work but want stuff for free. The working american class is the one that is not heard.
Democrats are the union party, which has done more for the working man than anything else imaginable. The ones who want something for free are the Capitalists owners and their cheap wages. Labor is superior to wealth--Thomas Jefferson.
Robert are you referring to the welfare queen from 1980s...the one Reagan brought up? If so that's a myth.
Idk what a welfare queen is? What I am talking about is all the people who are getting free handouts who could freaking work! As a white person I am the minority because all the other groups get privileges I don't get now?!
Welfare queen is where the welfare myth came from . BTW most of the welfare recipients I know are whites who lost their jobs during the Great Recession.Whites and non-whites I know didn't like being on them, either (payouts are bad)
Well the us population is 62% white. Africans are 13%. However out of all the welfare cases there as as many blacks as whites. So that tells you 4 times as many blacks get welfare then white people, based on percentage of the population.
What's the percentage for blacks on welfare? Saying the population of the U.S. has 13% of the population are blacks doesn't automatically mean there are more blacks on welfare, percentage-wise. Also, why focus on African-Americans?
Most welfare is in Republican states, because they always put business interests ahead of the little guy. Just look at Kansas and Louisiana. And they take children from mothers, put them in state custody. It's horror show.
Also, don't forget that some of these "welfare cheats" are working in jobs that don't pay enough to support them or their families (i.e. Walmart employees).
Dude I did the math already. For all the people on welfare, blacks make up 38% and white makeup 38%... so 4x as many blacks are on welfare based on population. Since whites are 62 and blacks are 13... right?(: they take the most per person, thats why
First, check your math. Secondly, the names not dude. And finally, where did you get your stats from and do they tell the whole story. This sounds like you have a beef with blacks. Do you? You may want to consider your position.
u do math fo me since i so dumb. R u a chick? Look up if u don't believe. all on welfare=100% & blacks make up 38% along w/ whites. There r 4x as many whites in america. Yet there r just as many blacks as white in welfare! only beef wit takers!
Ok so wait...is the argument that because there are more black people on welfare, they're cheating the system? What kind of fucked logic is that?
Same amount of black & whites on welfare. But there are 4x as many whites in america. Oh wait it must be da white man fault. They get all these advantages. A white guy gets shot no one cares. A black man and its protest time. They leave their fam
You're getting bitchy and you ask if I'm a chick (LMAO) Also, how do I know you're not a taker? If there's one thing I learned over the years is that big mouths are such because they're embarrassed about something.
Still think your math sucks.
Prove my math wrong then smarty! I am not a taker, i have a disability from my lupus sle but I'm not on disability, i used to be a dope head and supported my own habit, spent over 100k! i love blacks that hustle on their own! & I'm jumpy by natur
Who Gets Food Stamps? White People, Mostly.
This is a stupid racist discussion by the way. Nobody is on welfare just for fun. ask them if they rather want to have a job and most of them would answer positive.
Wait a second! You were a dope-head that blew through 100k and you're proud of that? There are plenty of hard-working folks out there who swallowed their pride to take assistance (even while working) and you're calling them cheats! STFU!
Welfare isn't food stamps! People on welfare make more money by getting rid of the dad then having him work! It don't work with food stamps that way. Peace though i got better things to do! Like... uh... work!(: Bye bye.
As Motley Crue puts it: Don't go away mad. Just go away.. and do your "um job."
i was gunna go but i have to say one more thing. Nikki Sixx or whatever, remember when he got mad at black security guard and called him the n word? Maybe u shoulda brought up a different band lol. Peace bro!
You lost the argument. Go away. I'm done with you.
GOD WANTS YOU to vote for birther-Trump.
God is a republican?
Dean..U sweet man.I luy U! That piss pot has asked 4 a damned good lashing since he signed up! All mouth, disrespectful, self-proclaimed know it all, doesn't work, lives w/ Mama & clearly illiterate. Mimics what he hears & is PROUD!! Good job
Of course not Leslie. God is Green Party!
That would be Goddess jill Stein. (But I hear she has issues)

Your answer begs the question...how's that philosophy of kumbaya working out in Europe right now?
ditto to my other comments. It is so repetitious, it is like everyone is drinking the same potion.
And when you're working in the private sector, its a lot easier to hide your personal business and avoid being attacked by the media which something I don't think trump is used to. Sure he's used to reality TV criticism but its not the same thing
You may be optimistic if you are part of the 1%, if not you will be used to make the 1% richer. No minimum wage (read slavery contracts.) no rights for employers, that's big coops dreams. A nightmare for the 99% a dream for the 1%.
Why not raise the minimum-wage to $100-hr and give everybody free lunch to boot?
don't be silly Kevin, who proposed $100-hr min. wage? nobody.
Yes, the hyperbolic drama. Removing an egg is murdering a child, 15 $an hr becomes 100. Meanwhile, Trump is hinting to 2nd amend people they may have to kill dems to get their way. This is called Mussolini, Ceasar, the rise of the demigogue(god).
So if somehow the minimum-wage was magically doubled to $15-hr what will the guy presently making $15-hr get paid? $26-hr?
And why not free lunches for everybody all around?
Yes, why not? The only reason they don't is because the CEO has to make 5million. Odd that a follower of Jesus has to question this. I'm dumbfounded that 15 an hr offends you for a worker, but 5 mil is Jesss dandy for one person.
When minimum-wage gets raised ALL wages get raised exponentially. The cost of living skyrockets as do prices and of course the real winner TAXES.
Dumbstruck!! A Guy who currently makes $15 will earn the same as he did before. It just got a name...minimum wage.nothing changes.
Aperntly you prefere slavery, $2 an hour without insurance.
Right. It's just lesser poverty. As Warren said, if wages had kept up w cost of living, minimum would be 22 an hr. That's how far away we've moved from decency. All for profit. Greed. we wub ebenezer scrooge. Little Timmy? Go f yourself!
The real object is to make the cost of living go down not up. Raising the minimum-wage will only make the cost of living go up. Those on fixed incomes will suffer terribly.
Whose objective? Certainly not business! And the wages have gone stagnant while costs went up. Time to cut from the top, share the wealth around. After all, we are very unbalanced in America. Top stole all the money. Time to give it back.
A minimum wage is good for economy because people have more money to spent. there will be a bigger middle class which is essential for a healthy economy. If not the chasm between poor and rich will deepen and in the end explode.
Whenever there is an attempt to "cut from the top" the middleclass gets smaller and more people go on the public dole. Seems like the "top" is in control and untouchable.
I don't know, they used to pay 90% tax and they were still rich. That's actually in the good old days people talk about. When I was kid, workers were respected. We just need to undo 40 yrs of reagonomics. Trickle up is highway robbery.
Marxist-socialists, like Hillary, Bernie Sanders & BHO, have already ruined our country making their NWO under the UN.
It was under a Republican prez that they paid 90% tax.... And it didn't hurt them one bit. Now, you have Republicans making laws for the 1%. Like trump, who says he does all he can to not pay. If we were socialist, my utility couldn't cut me off.
I am a great admirer of Justin Trudeau, have read extensively about him. I believe he will work well with the person who will be our next President and I don't believe it will be Mr. Trump.
Ha ha, great answer. Unfortunately I think it would be the alternate (and probably much faster) path to doom.
The reason why the world is in a crisis is because Reagan and Thatcher opened the world for neo-conservatism and free market system. The rich got all the freedom, the rights of the poor destroyed. Trump will continue with no labor rights.
While Reagan and Thatcher were far from perfect, we've had much bigger problems since then.
True, the biggest problem we have right now is Climate change. (And we cant afford a US president who doesnt believe in Climate change) But the free market of Milton Friedman made the grap between the 1% and the 99%.
The biggest problem that we have now is the instability of our economy. This could be another 2008 surprise.
God is not here, Trump is here.
not yet brad
Truer words could not be spoken!!
Well said Missy!!
God is not here, money is here.
Well said Missy!!
When was the last successful outcome based on In God We Trust?
Speaking of "Armageddon," has anyone here read the brand new book by Dick Morris? It promises to be a Hillary killer. Strange, he was a heavy duty Clintonite at one time.
No, but coulter has a new book, "in trump we trust"....geez, I said he was a demigod, and look! In trump/God we trust!!! Intuition never lies.
If that is your position, then please don't vote. We have no idea what you want in a pres.
She wants Bernie. And you go vote every time you get a chance Mercedes!
Thanks Leslie, I will!
She wants the one candidate that's been consistent throughout his political career, doesn't sell out to corporations, and advocates policies that actually help the American people...you act as if Sanders hasnt said and shown all of this already Brad.
"If you're not voting for someone I like then please don't vote."
That pretty much sums up a Trump supporter, doesn't it?
Now all we need is a sucker punch...
Maybe there will be a third candidate for whom people can vote as a "plague on both your houses" option.
There was in 2000- Nader. And also Ross Perot....and i was very excited for McKinney or Graver. But, it is what it is. You can cast your vote for 3rd party...inevitably, it helps one or the other major party candidates. It's a huge hurdle.
Your vote is your right, vote whom you prefer.
thank you for some great reason madan!! I think exactly the same!
Trump is failing in polls against Hillary. Both Rubio and Cruz have done well in polls vs Hillary. People that are understandably upset with our government are, IMO, rolling the dice with Trump.
have the polls been accurate this year?
It's nice to post an image to defame someone.....I've actually seen this image without any writing on it.....What does that tell you people?
I hear what you are saying but most American have memories like goldfish when it comes to politics and current events. I'm talking about even intelligent, college educated voters here. Most can't tell you who their own Congress people are.
This image if fake! He never said that! Please do your research before spreading lies... wow!
It does seem likely that the meme is fake.
Not that that detracts anything from the litany of problems he's had from the start of this election cycle.
the polls have been wrong many times this year...
None of the other politicians, or Obama have used the same methods as you rant about Trump.
I have to keep asking when I see comments like this, Where have you been for the last 24 years?
He will win against Hillary, 1 because he is an outsider 2 because he is pointing out the real problems that are crushing our economy and future 3 because Hillary has more dirt than Trump and that will be proven out.
The only reason the country is better off than when Obama took office is because he took office in the MIDDLE of a recession. Obama did nothing but impede progress & slow recovery. we could have put anyone in office in '09 & the country bette
Hate to say it, but the meme is a fake. It was covered on Snopes. It may sound like something he'd say, but alas this didn't come from him. Then again, who needs a meme? He has uttered more outrageous things than that.
The only way Hillary or Trump can get elected will be because Hillary will run against Trump and Trump will run against Hillary. Two potential losers who have clearly show who they really are. Not good!
"3rd. time running for President"....??? WHO? Trump? Pray tell, please tell us what years he ran TWICE before this? Did I just wake up on another planet?
The funniest is when he dropped out because he couldn't stand David Duke being in his party, but now can't remember who he is. Suck up.
He hinted over the decades that he may, but this is his first time running.
You have joined the many that can attack without substance or facts, and there is no comment on the comparative plans and solutions of all the candidates. The one issue you raised could be easily verified by you chose not to look it up.????
Yes I did look it up!!!! You need to read the Washington Post.. they are asking the same questions-- where are the funds you raised for our Veterans ?????
Yeah they are asking the same questions... but are they getting any answers? if it was true why would cruz or rubio not have proven it already? many people have asked that question and made that claim but i haven't seen proof of it yet.
All I am saying is-- We all know Trump loves to brag about himself. If Trump was truly raising more money.
He would boast about it all over the news. His Ego Mania would compel him to brag about all the good he supposedly doing for our country -
That is not good evidence & everytime i hear him speak he brags about how much he gives the vets... not that its true but thats what he says & its yet to be proven otherwise. Please don't use a personality as evidence. I could say Hillary onl
Maybe he can't tell anyone where it is, because he's being audited.DERP oh I know I know, it's the big bad IRS nothing donald did.He's an angel.Just remember, it doesn't matter what you say as long as u have a nice piece of a by your side.Ty, R women
There are such things as random audits. I know he said he thinks its unfair. Maybe cause he's rich & in spotlight. I think most americans cheat on their taxes at least a little bit whether intentional or lazy. And idk why your bring up his wife..
She must be a Trump Supporter
Brigitte that is the one thing I don't like about Trump, when he makes fun of people also when the other politicians do it. I am gunna go because I don't like to bully and belittle people like that link you posted. Peace!
True. However, I am not running for the president of the United States.
Read Charles Krouthammer's appraisal of each candidate's foreign policy outlook published in my local paper 4/4/2016.
Wow, that sounds like a real unique thought. What do you base this factless opinion on??
Great comment, thanks for sharing with us.
Donald Drumpf says it as it is. If he sounds like a racist and bigot then he is a racist and a bigot.
When you say huge empire I read a dream Stalin, Hitler and all the big dictators had.
Donald Drumpf is simplistic but dangerous man.
He's going to lose it soon. Once those pics of his wife really get out, plus there are a couple of allegations against him by women, in the Clinton vein...he won't be able to handle it. Song by Jimmy Cliff, the harder they come, the harder they fall.
America has always been for sale. George Soros owns Obama, and is now putting his sights on Hillary.
Yeah let the ILLEGALS come and take all our stuff! You know they can come over commit a nonviolent crime and just get sent back. Why would they not just cross the border and steal all day? Oh wait they do that.
Well said. Trump is not a true conservative
Maybe he can't be bought, but he certainly believes in bankruptcy as a way of avoiding his responsibilities!!
They are his primary Go - To business tool!!
With he and Putin at the respective helms, the world is in deep trouble!!
Yes the congressional way is better than bankruptcy, print more money, and borrow trillions from our not so US friendly China.

Before or after we slaughtered the indians?
My Irish ancestors came here by ship before World War One as common laborers. They never had seen blacks or savage redskins before. Surely they had nothing to do with killing Indians or owning slaves.
Prepper....."Savage Redskins???!!!" Does UR vocabulary consist of more than a dozen vulgar terms?? All I hear from U is "Anti-Christ, Kenyan-born son of a whore"" & now savage redskins!! Then U have the balls to THANK GOD???
Will your eternity be in Heaven with the virgin-born, Son of God, Jesus the Christ OR in the lake of fire with the Kenyan-born son of a porn-star Obama the Antichrist?
hahaha, you still believe there's a god, man wake up it's the 20th century. Lightning is not a wrath of a god. Evolution theory, ever heard about it? Or are the dinosaurs fake as well!!!
Thanks Pete for mentioning evolution is just a "theory". Dinosaurs did exist at one time and apparently lived alongside human beings.
So the Flintstones was an incredible documentary? Who knew?
Yuppers, bread & circus to keep our minds off what the Illuminati(Jesuits, Freemasons, Skull&Bones, CFR, etc.) are doing behind the scenes.
What have people heard about you?
Trump is the personification of all that is wrong with this country!!
I'm not religious, but I pray that he is not elected!!
Your comment could be taken as serious or satire, LoL! What scares me is people who look at the image I posted and are okay. How brainwashed can people be - even all the way down in Australia? That's why your comment almost sounds like satire, ha!
Catherine , lol I agree!
Catherine what is satire is the image you posted is fake! Stop spreading lies and do research before posting stuff that defames people.
No facts, and too emotional
That is ignorant to call Trump worse than Hitler!! You are like mocking the jews in the concentration camps. Its a totally different situation deporting ILLEGALS and not allowing MUSLIMS who if you really read the quran, actually are violent!!!
I guess that's why the British Parliament ran a session on banning him from the UK recently.
Like I said, I'm going to laugh!
Tessa I said you were exaggerating comparing Trump to Hitler. Tell the people who were in concentration camps he is just as bad. He isn't going to lock up anyone... just kick out ILLEGALS! You are RUDE to the people who suffered in the holocaust!!
Regardless of what the British Parliament does or doesn't do, Americans are going to decide what happens with this political process - for good or for bad. I feel for Americans who're upset with our government, but there's no solution in Trump.
WHY was this answer voted down, this answer has a logical premise.
i like yours statment tESSA.,if donald trump be a president i will sleeep for 3 hour hahahah everyday
You've summed it up very well.
I would add that with Trump and Putin at the respective helms of their countries, the world be in big trouble!!
voted up, Tessa- I think your assumption is quite correct.

What is the basis for this delusion??
Advocating for blowing up families of terrorists doesn't particularly paint the best picture of peace...
I am more worry he declaring war on another country, due to stupid hot headed reason and the next thing we know, total war.
WW3 is going to happen with or without Trump. It is already beginning. The stage is set.
Except Trump is less militaristic than most of his rivals; he has opined that the military should only be used when the United States is directly threatened. Clinton (who voted in favor of invading Iraq) would be more likely to start WWIII.
Confederate General Albert Pike wrote a letter to another globalist Luciferian in Europe outlining the need for three world wars to establish a New World Order. Two down & one to go.
