Trump might fix some things in the short term, but

anyone who uses the office of the President expands the powers of the office of the President.

That is the worst and most totalitarian precedent that can happen, in the long run.

I think Trump will get elected, because

1 Its the Republican's turn

2 He is like Reagan as far as public persona's go. Its about time for another Reagan.

(In a country of 300 million, why isn't there a Reagan every time?)

I dont like Trump and this is why:

Trump is a big money corporatist through and through.

Corporatism+State=Fascism

Does no one else see a problem here?

Like: He makes me laugh with his absurdity

Dislike: He doesn't think it's absurdity. He really believes the crap that he spews.

II like him because he offers a much needed rogue-option to the voters who are ready, willing and able to go rogue.


I'm just going to point out that the current President has been constantly accused of "going rogue" throughout his Presidency, and not in a good way. Hell, every time he does anything, people are all upset about him "going rogue".

Fair enough.... but presidents don't get to go rogue. Presidents have a job to do within certain established parameters. When a president goes rogue, it means he's making up his own rules.

In reference to the people going rogue, I specifically refer to the people defying and challenging their parties and their elected leaders, which we have every right, privilege and responsibility to do. Very different things.

Because he has money? Is this the above all merit for which we choose the best and brightest from?


No. His wealth makes him an attractive candidate because he doesn't need to suck up to special interests to fund his campaign. And I feel confident he can't be bribed once in office.


originally posted by: GD21D How many times has he declared bankruptcy?


3-4 corporate bankruptcies out of 100's of business deals. I think most of the casinos in Atlantic City went under during that time period. The bankruptcies are a pretty weak attack angle IMO.


originally posted by: GD21D His lack of foreign policy knowledge is terrifying.



Presidents have fp advisers. That's what the State Dept is for. He couldn't do worse than Bush or Obama.




originally posted by: GD21D His lack of proper etiquette hurts him in the foreign policy arena as well.


As he likes to say, he's a world class businessman. He deals with people all over the world. He's not politically correct. But I think he would certainly know how to act when dealing with other world leaders. I don't think a President Trump would literally bow down to Chinese or Saudi Arabian rulers like Obama.

I think your assessment on how easy it would be to drone them is inaccurate.

I dislike that it's clear he's not a serious candidate. And that he'll likely drop out at the first sign of trouble. Probably before a single vote is cast.


You're expressing the same talking points the political establishment was repeating all summer.
The Iowa caucus is barely 3 months away. He's clearly the GOP front runner. He's not going anywhere. He's either going to win it or lose. But I'd bet my ATS account he's not dropping out.


Biggest thing I've heard him say that I disagree with is the matter concerning Snowden. i.e. hero or traitor.
But realistically, if he wants to win the GOP nomination, he can't say anything but traitor. Even Sanders said Snowden should "face consequences". So none of the politicians have any balls to stand up to the NSA.
