I gotta say, it's really disheartening to see members of ATS love Trump as they do, and there are a lot of you. ATS should be a place that shouldn't be supporting a man like Trump for president because as much as he isn't a politician, which is why you all say you love him so much, as he goes on he actually proves to us that he will become the very thing you all think he isn't. He's a liar. He's apart of the oligarchy that rules this land. He doesn't take responsibility for his wrong doings. But most importantly, he doesn't care about you. He doesn't care about you. He cares about himself and his legacy.

But he pretends to be a conservative and since he's the GOP front runner you all hail and praise him.

Keep insulting trump supporters let me know how that works out for you.
When he gets elected it will be as much your fault for pushing with your hate.
Your as bad as the mainstream media.
Hit trump not your fellow Americans.

Of course, I'm not disputing that. But do you think it makes him the most intelligent or just a very clever troll???

Although he comes across as a crass baffoon who appears to engage his mouth before his brain, I am enjoying the establishment and their propaganda machine experience a systems failure.

Hell, he could even be the catalyst for the deconstruction of the entire government and rebuild it again - after all, he is a CEO who has certainly experienced the ups and downs of corporate life and seems attuned to rebuilding resultant from failure.

I'll give him that much.

You found my post insulting did you? Why is that exactly? Are you saying he isn't a liar, apart of the oligarchy, and takes responsibility for his actions? Off the top of my head, I could never support anyone who twice retweeted tweets from actual white supremacists.

If any other candidate did that they would have been crucified but for some reason Trump gets a pass.

Btw, I'm worse than the MSM? What does that even mean? I'll hit Trump and his supporters because if he didn't have you guys supporting him he wouldn't be here to hit. So I blame you.

But do you consider Trumps ability to Get Cruz a sign of intelligence or is it just that he's better at slinging mud and will say things that most adult presidential candidates wouldn't???

Like a school yard, if you can remember that far back. Come backs and put downs were a method used to bully others but it didn't mean the person using them was the most intelligent. Usually just a very well studied "little sh*t".


It's not random or indiscriminate mud slinging, as you put it. Trump's success is anything but random.
Nevertheless, the most effective strategy is one that appears to be random...but is highly structured and well thought out.

Trump and Cruz respect each other very much.
Cruz will always adapt, because he's a brilliant debater with an Eidetic memory...and he handles Trump much better than the other candidates ...but Trump is a chess player...and knows staying on offense will always give a competitor the advantage.

Katrina Pierson is her name and she is smart, beautiful and has a real life story to tell. She is under some pressure for comments made which many would describe as bigoted. Being that she is Mixed both a white mother and black father I don't see that sticking to well to her as anything other than failed fodder for the critics. She is a real tough nut to crack.

I love it!! She wore a necklace made of bullets during an interview on CNN.


I'll bet her parents are very proud of this audacious young lady even if they don't agree with her politics, which I don't know if they do or don't. She would make a remarkable lawyer! I'll keep an eye out for her because I'd like to see her in action.

That is some of the best advice I've seen in a while. You're absolutely correct about that.

At this point Trump supporters will only become more resilient against any attacks to them or even Trump himself. They've already hitched their wagon to him and done so with a blindness toward all his shortcomings and horrible statements and failures. But they do so because they want what he's promised so bad that they simply ignore the possibility that he's either conning them or just completely BSing them. At this point they've gone too far to admit they've made a mistake by having it pointed out by someone else. They will only change now if they are allowed to do it on their own terms.

I didn't say it was random. I think it's mostly deliberate and calculated. Not all of it but some. Some stuff I think he just says because he's used to saying whatever he wants to people and getting away with it regardless of how incorrect or rude or inappropriate it may be or the damage it causes.

But a lot of it I think is planned and done for a purpose.

But my question is still, does that make him the most intelligent and is he using the best strategy or is it just that he's a very well trained and clever troll who's willing to fight a little dirtier than the other guy??

I love it when people put words in my mouth. I said no such thing. I simply stated that because of her race it won't fly over too well. She is a tough nut to crack. Don't underestimate the woman. Her critics won't do very well with the race card considering her race. It doesn't matter if she is a bigot or not. Those are the facts on the ground as we know them right now.

Thanks
I agree with your analysis as well. The only way Trump doesn't get the gop nom is if he chooses not too. Also if Hillary is sacked over the emails I think Trump strolls in to the white house easily. Hillary is calling Sanders socialist, if a dem is doing that trump won't have to.

What's disheartening is that you seem to think you're smarter than everybody else and seem to know why people support him.

If he's just pretending to be a conservative and is really a liberal then it's a win-win for the left, correct? So why are you all complaining about it endlessly?

What exactly do you think ATS should be? The Huffington Post? Should ATS be another leftist circle jerk?

Note I do not support Trump but I do have observations to add that will appear in his favor.

I happen to be of the opinion he is in this to win it, he has been toying with a Presidential run for a long while. You can look back and see him observing around the edges back when Jessie Ventura was a Governor. There was Rumors of him running as an Independent every Election since 2004. Even ugh Rush (there is a name that saying gives me willies) commented on his possible run in 2012...

Trump has Studied the situation with a Business eye, and has developed a stratagem that was based around winning. He has watch the Media choose the Republican candidate almost every time since Bush. He studied the 3rd party Run of Ross Perot, Who if he had been one of the Big Two would had won...

He has it for all reason gauged the General Populace and took a tactic that he knew he would be attacked by big news media, The news Media has Sunk every RNC candidate over the last few elections, so if he pulled the teeth out of that Tiger fast and early then he has no reason to fear it like any respectable candidate would. And that was pure tactic.

Think about this Sanders is the best candidate to put against Trump for a reason. He can sink Hillary in the Debates with one Line. "I have bought you out before, proof you can be bought is you attended my wedding on my dollar instead of staying at your job. I on the other hand can not be bought." And that is long range planning Tactic, because what is one big gripe the general populace has about politicians is that they can be bought and payed for.

What we are seeing is Some who has Studied the system and found the Cracks in it and is exploiting the cracks in the system to win. He is using the Media against itself and has been since the Mexico wall comment.

I personally do not want to see him win but I have got to admire the pure Tactical Style he is using.

We can't have a different opinion? Politics is nasty, if you don't want to get your feelings hurt; don't run with the big dogs; stay on the porch.

If it offends you that I think Trump is a lying fool and a traitor, and is playing his devotees for fools. Tough **** bub...

Trump scares the crap out of me. Even the thought of him as President scares me. I like Bernie Sanders but even he scares me. I don't want to see Trump win but you have to acknowledge that he might win. And if so we must be prepared. We survived 8 years of Bush & Cheny. So let's hope it's not that bad. One thing can be said about trump though. He surrounds himself with the right people and he is decisive. Look at the options we have though. They are all scary as hell. I wish Al Gore would run.

Intelligence is a very subjective term...so your question is an impossible one to answer. Trump is smart...very smart.
Trump is also very savvy...and he literally wrote the book on succeeding in dealing with others to win. This means, Trump is also shrewd...and he wins because he knows HOW to win...not because he's lucky.

People who underestimate him by assuming he's just a clown or a buffoon...do so at their own peril.

Not sure I understand your meaning. I am no conservative though. I am one of those people who are stuck in the middle. I really don't lean in one direction or another. I am a little bit of everything in the political spectrum.

I appreciate different opinions. I welcome them without them all you see is what's in the mirror.
As to feelings what you appearantly don't understand is that to be hurt by some one you have to care about them. I don't know you how could I care about you?
You as well give yourself too much credit.
At least you only posted opposition to trump and didn't insult the people who support him.

Maybe I'm asking my question in the wrong way. Let's start again in a different way.

Who do you think is more intelligent, Trump or Cruz??? Just in a general overall kind of way.
