Can Donald Trump be trusted with power? What happens if he decides 'You're fired!'?
Donald Trump gave the impression he already thought he owned the world, long before running for President. Will he be able to be 'restrained', if necessary, if he's President? Or is there a danger the US become Trump-land?
Yes, he has personal magnetism. But is he the kind of person to trust with immense power?
'Hitler used personal magnetism and an understanding of crowd psychology to his advantage while engaged in public speaking. Historians have noted the hypnotic effect of his rhetoric on large audiences, and of his eyes in small groups.'
This is the ultimate question surrounding the Trump candidacy. Many are saying that a Trump presidency would be the start of fascism in America. Others believe that bringing in someone without political experience is exactly what our bloated federal government needs. However, our system of government is set up so that it can reign in a power-hungry executive. Our legislative branch has not been doing that much in terms of curbing Obama’s socialist agenda. But, the courts have done a better job at rolling back some of the outrageous actions by our current president, though they always take much longer to make any concrete steps.
As for Trump, I believe he can be trusted with power. He is a genius in terms of media and marketing and brand identity. People say so did Hitler but that is not even close of a comparison. Sure Trump is cult of personality and people are attracted to him and not his policies for the most part. But if he has run billion dollar companies, actually run businesses, hired and fired people, this kind of actual real life experience is something that I think would much better prepare someone to become president, at least much better than a couple years in the state senate, US senate, after being a community organizer for a short time.
In short, yes Trump can be restrained and he will likely not be as scary a president as many are making him out to be.
There is a lot of power in the United States. There is power in the courts, the Congress, government agencies, the States, Congress, the military, and corporate interests. Hitler's rise to power took place over a couple decades and included developing and growing a power apparatus around himself, while decimating opposition (at times with physical violence).
Trump has done no such thing. He appeals to the masses, but has in no way built any apparatus of power around himself, nor has he in any way destroyed opposition. If he is president he will be beholden to all of the power interests surrounding him, just like anyone else.
Also, keep in mind that Hitler was considered to be an actual gifted speaker. He started from nothing and advanced his position largely through his oratory capabilities that impressed not just common people but also his superiors above him.
Trump on the other hand is where he is because of his money. While he may be able to motivate Duck Dynasty fans, his oratory capabilities are hardly gifted, and do little or nothing to sway those with more then three operational brain cells.
Your argument and question here have no merit. There is more danger for the country if we elect an professional and very skilled LIAR in the form of Hillary Clinton? In addition she is unqualified, unaccomplished and thinks she is above the Law.
If Trump is Hitler then Hillary is his wife.
Making these kind of comparisons says more about you than Trump.
I would trust Trump more than I would trust Clinton. She has already proven to be corrupt. For me the presidency has always been deciding between the lesser of two evils. For me it would be Trump. I actually like some of his ideals but the question is would he follow through with them.
I always felt we needed a business man to get this country back on track financially.
Who can really be trusted with power?
A man who is campaigning to reduce the size of government is not a dictator.
When a President says you didn't pass illegal alien amnesty and orders the INS to issue waivers for 4 years (de facto amnesty) and reinterprets Title 9 of the education legislation to say transgenders get to use women's facilities even if they have male plumbing, THAT is a dictator.
Frankly, we need Trump to go in and fire a whole lot of bureaucrats who won't enforce tax or immigration law violations by illegal aliens, who do throw the book at farmers and ranchers for minor EPA rule violations they didn't know, put people in jail for violating foreign laws they didn't know of, actively interfered with groups per political bias (Tea Party groups unable to get IRS non profit status, constant audits of famous conservatives while Democrat celebrities get away with open tax evasion).
