Fear, emotion and knee jerk reactions are such a good way to vote a leader in.....worked so well for Germany in 1933.

Are you so wrapped up in fear and hysteria you cant see your letting the terrorists win?

Using fear to take control of people's sense of comfort works every time. Our government uses it to get the sheeple to follow . Scare people enough and promise them protection the masses won't question it. It certainly worked with the Iraq war.

Fear is the most primal driving force for humans. It's sad it gets used for political gain by idiot politicians who show how desperate they are to control others.
It is possible to live life with a much lower reaction to fear,ask any Buddhist. Once you lose the fear of death. Life becomes so much more emancipating

Of course not. Do you know if any of the other candidates will hold up their end and keep their campaign promises? I have not seen ONE POTUS in my life time do this and I have been walking on this rock for over five decades!


So your answer is to root for the guy who has ZERO chance of keeping his promises. Promises that are impossible to achieve for a myriad of reasons including that they would be unconstitutional.


Makes perfect sense.

The thing about the Trumps of this world, is that it's only good when you agree with them. He's moaning about muslims at the minute - that won't last for ever. So where will he go next? He's an uber-capitalist, so you can bet he'll have a problem with the working class soon enough. Then what's next? Catholics? Women? Whatever demographic he likes, he'll just keep on spewing his hate while the world burns around us. Be careful what you wish for America.

None of them do which beggars the question why you think President Camacho Dorrito would?

You are excited to be voting based on fear? Are you terrified to go outside at this point or something?

You must love the Patriot Act and the NSA spying on us. Oh and the TSA that keeps bombs off of airplanes. They make us feel SOOO secure.

Fear sells, always has.

I am the most worried about the crappy economy and it's impact on my life. The government is best at one thing, war. So that is what it wants to do. That's what another 8 to 16 years will be, just like the last.

This is why Idiocracy is a documentary.

Social engineers have done such a masterful job of psychologically destroying the mind of the masses that people continue to allow the media to create their reality.

To the trump supporters, for the love of god realize he is an act, sent by the oligarchy to divide the masses further and guarantee that old monster known to the world as Hilldog, will win. It is that simple, the plan for her to win has never changed, but they must make it look good.

Throw in Bernie to give the notion of a "choice" and people will continue drudging along in their servitude, convinced their opinion matters.

Enjoy the circus!


I had to use quote on this one because I rarely see something as truthfully stated as this comment. Support Trump and you'll get Hilary.......4, or worse, 8 years of Hilary. Even though I'm a lifelong anti-Marxist, I realize that the US would be better off with Sanders than with Hilary.

As to the quote, the only thing to add is that in my lifetime, the veil that hides the puppet master that controls the Wizard has never been this gossamer thin. If people can't see the truth now, they will never be able to do so. But then again, perhaps they simply must "believe" and refuse to see the truth. No one's as blind as the one who refuses to see.

It's not Hillary the elite puppet masters are setting the stage for. What they are aiming for is a continuation of the neocon Bush Dynasty and an expansion of the never ending war in the mid East. Trump the entertainer is playing his part in this surreal theater of the absurd masterfully. I'ma skeered!!!

To be gaining and maintaining popularity he is saying what people

want to hear? The *silent* majority? What people are afraid

to say for fear of offending *political correctness*?


He has a tenacity and strength of character to take the flack ....

and not *pussy foot* around the elephant in the room trying to

please every one.(An impossible task)


He is a successful business man, running a country is 'just another

business'?? only on a much bigger scale?


Maybe the time to have a clear out .... get rid of the cob webs?


But hey!! What do I know I'm in the UK ....





With that mentality you display..........I WOULD VOTE FOR YOU!

Have you read my post? My comments have NOTHING to do with fear but to REPAIR what is broken..... the USA!

Whats up with you and your constant bitching at me?

You only want to start trouble. I will not respond to any more of your sarcastic remarks.

You sound like a bitter mean woman, I suggest counseling.

No it's all based in fear. I read between the lines. All of trump's rhetoric appeals to the fearful and emotional. That's how its designed. Rational discourse points out how it is obviously flawed.

PS: Man all that caps lock in your posts... Why all the yelling? You appear to be upset. Try counseling.

So why do you want another president who roots himself in fear and hysteria?

What's sad is whether or not he's next president doest change the fact that irregardless, the moment he is no longer useful to the FEARPORN agenda, he will if effect be assassinated by the Globalist banksters that now run the West.

Sorry, I entirely disagree. Bush may win and probably will win the nomination and when that happens the Trump voters will stay home. And that's the whole plan......to split the Republican vote so Hilary has a clear shot at winning.

Perhaps, but..... I totally agree that the Trump voters will stay home. In fact they will stay home even if Trump gets the nomination. The demographic that is attracted to Trump isn't large enough for him to get elected even if on the outside chance he gets the nomination.

Trumps appeal rests entirely with middle working class, white, undereducated, conservative, mainly male voters.
He simply can't win without the minorities....that he went out of his way to alienate. Stupid move, even if it excited his base.

That's the problem with running a campaign based on fear and loathing.

Personally, I'll just be glad when this election is over; and no, I won't be voting for the presidential slot.....none of the potential candidates looks right to me.

But with this election over, and assuming Hilary wins, which I believe she will, this should be the final nail in the coffin of the Republican party.
