Like the conditions imposed on post WW1 Germany that would eventually lead them down the path of either extinction or war? Or the fact that the "charismatic leader" actually used western corruption to rise up Germany, but when he did it it was Nazi'ism, when Britain did it, it was "democracy".

Got it.

Knowing the reasons behind the "major factors" shed's a bit more light. Bet you would disagree that Hitler actually tried to use diplomatic methods, but was refused outright. Those Poles sure made a big stir when they amassed their army after finding they have Britain's support. You could even say it started a world war.

(or are we all just falling for the ramped up Republican narrative to knock him down and keep a mainstream candidate as the nominee).


Trump is as mainstream as it gets right now, he's leading the polls.

I wouldn't be surprised if Trump actually wins, he seems to fit the narrative being produced by those in power perfectly. He's rich, bigoted, egotistical, and non-PC. What better candidate could there be to lead the "free-world"? He represents everything about those who are behind the political curtain.

Trump is a joke, but has been playing his cards right.

What I want to know is how far do we let this go? Those that support Trump are becoming more and more comfortable with making racists, xenophobic comments and Trump is only emboldening them to go further down the extreme path.

Look at ATS. From an outside observer, ATS may look like a site where racists can ran't about "thugs" and Muslims. That's not why I joined ATS but it is quickly becoming that way.

Trump doesn't scare me as much as those that are now supporting him. I seriously doubt he's really some racist bigot. He is, as you said, saying whatever the people want to hear.

And that, right there, is frightening.

It used to be unacceptable to be racially biased, bigoted and xenophobic. You would get ostracized and called out for it in a heartbeat. Now? With Trump on stages nation-wide, people aren't as afraid to let their inner prejudices fly. It's now becoming more and more acceptable to point fingers at ethnic/cultural groups and paint with broad brushes.

The scariest thing? These people have probably always felt this way, they just needed someone famous to say it first so they could feel safe in repeating it.


Exactly.

Trump is legitimizing general rudeness, disrespect, and douchiness for all of his little Trumpkins under the guise of The War On Political Correctness.

Now all the little Trumpkins have free troll passes and get to feel vindicated by the very act of being an asshole.

"Money was never a big motivation to me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game"

I'll say this about the bloke, he appears to be neither pandering to the left or the right but is continuously saying things that he believes are true and correct whether the political establishment agrees with his sentiments or not.

I think that US politicians have a rival like no other - he is an enigma - every time he goes full retard he gets more popular and whether by design or otherwise, it is a reflection on the US voter when poll show his consistent rise in popularity.

There is going to be hell toupee' when the political correction precious snowflake crowd wake up one day to The Don as the Captain - there will be no more soup for them.

Yep.

Unfortunately, people are brainwashed by what they think they know to be real. When you realize that most of the history we are taught is either a lie, or not telling the whole story, it's easier to figure out what is actually going on.

The brainwashing and propaganda runs so deep that it becomes almost impossible to wake people up. The only chance you have is with people who already realize things aren't right, and want to know the truth no matter what. Some people know things aren't right, but will only go so far down the rabbit hole. It's hard to come to terms with the idea that everything you know is basically a lie.

Some people only want to know the lies about things that benefit their current biases.

It's always easier to fool someone than to convince them that they have been fooled.

He's not MY choice...but I'm liking how he's able to manipulate and frustrate the media, establishment Republicans...and knee-jerk progressive poop-throwers.

All Im seeing, is a bunch of people saying this Trumphet player, named Donald was really, good at playing with a Trump.

But all I'm hearing is fart sounds, from some one whose tone deaf.

Whether one likes him or not, whether someone abhors his ideas or not, he should be welcome with open arms into the marketplace of ideas. Liberty requires it.

In my personal opinion he is not better than the poster all smile political figures that we have that has done nothing for this nation once they get into office, America has already been disgraced and embarrassed and raped by all of them.

I have read most of these posters BS for years.

Trump is their worst nightmare. I am really having fun.

Trump supporters this, Trump supporters are bigots, Trump is Hitler.

We are 20 trillion in debt. Our Borders are so wide open its a joke.

Trump is a middle finger to the establishment. That's it.

Instead of Chicken Little...The sky is falling, The sky is falling.

Don't like Trump, don't vote for him.

When you have most of the nation and the rest of the world talking about him, he is doing a great job at getting the attention away from the poster politicians.

What he is doing is lying to the public. The supporters either don't realize they are being lied to or worse they do.

There is no way to know what he actually stands for except saying anything for a vote.

Hope your ready! the country is going to get exclusive for a couple years bc of tight borders and the lower/middle class is going back to manufacturing. no more govt tit sucking and taxes wont take a scientist to do every year.

I agree, same thing happening here in Holland, with the likes such as Geert Wilders.
(Far) right winged populists are gaining votes everywhere nowadays.
If we're not careful, this could lead to another repetition of historical events, on the biggest scale yet to society.


What is actually happening is that the chickens of disastrous left-wing socialist's policies of appeasement are coming home to roost. Socialism has had it's day in Europe... it's been an abject failure and it's politicians are going down all over. Americans take notice.


Don't believe the hype.

Tony Blair was leader of a socialist party and a prime minister that demonstrated no appeasement, that's what's got us to this state.

Who benefits from the World hating on Muslims the most? The same country that is smack bang in the middle of all the crap that is going on, yet unaffected by any of it. Supporting Daesh, barrel by barrel.

How is that any different than the rest of these so called politicians?
