I'll be honest, I am truly enjoying Trump. I'm by no means a supporter, don't misconstrue me (I'll still trying to figure out what Ameritude is and
why little girls in bikinis need to sing it), but I'm enjoying the pure comedy coming out of all of this - the American political system is a joke,
and now I'm not really laughing anymore.
Although not necessarily the same, so take this with some salt (I can admit I can be wrong) Rand Paul recently took quite a bit of heat for something
along similar lines.
This is the man people think that America needs. I wouldn't say he understands, as I'm sure he is intelligent (he praises himself like Kanye does
Kanye, there's a difference), but he simply doesn't care about learning to play with others and how to respect another's viewpoint.
"Take his jacket! It's -10* below out there!"
America shouldn't be viewed as a business - period. It's this nation that has developed corporations having "rights" and do I need mention legislation
such as TPP and ALEC? It is not only "politicians," who have raped the American public for decades - it's much more insidious, and those who speak out
take a limousine ride through Denver.
Whatever happened to ATS and the ever growing crowd of individuals who had seen past the partisan-politics, realizing exactly what it is - and the
most magnificent tool of divide, yet exactly the same - the Republican/Democrat paradigm.
I have absolutely no faith that Donald Trump will accomplish ANYTHING that will benefit the average man and woman, or their future children and
grandchildren. Perhaps I'm too pessimistic, I truly do envy some of your optimism in the hopes that "Trump is shaking things up!," but I have my
doubts regarding Sanders and even Paul, albeit Rand Paul seems to be THE most level-headed, rational, calm, reserved, and realistic candidate across
the boards. Trump does not seem to be the type of man as an FDR or J/RFK, he reaks of a megalomaniacal bully who has a superiority complex.
"Unconsciously or consciously, all of the women on the Apprenctine flirted with me. That was to be expected."
I still have a long life ahead of me, and living through (and being able to comprehend) the last three election cycles, it was beyond any doubt that
we "Constituents," have absolutely no in governmental affairs. I'm from Illinois, and I've met Aaron Shock - grandiloquent little douche, he was an
elitist who preached a word he himself never believed in. I feel as if Trump is absolutely no different, and is using the general distaste towards
government in many Americans, as well as other current issues on Americans minds; terrorists, gun confiscation; in order to gather support, using the
same retired and recycled rhetoric that has been used for decades as his main tool.
"Make America Great Again"
Again - perhaps I'm too pessimistic, and I doubt many will even bother reading my post. ATS used to frown upon partisan bickering, but now it is to be
expected - and I myself have been guilty of it. Donald Trump and supporters, I have but one question to ask you:
You talk about "gun confiscation," especially in the form of a federal government takeover. Why would you then continue to vote in favor of a federal
As to Trump not partaking in the debate, I'll keep my answer nice and short. If he's elected into office, I hope he realizes it's not "my high or the
highway." Government is much more complex than that, unfortunately. He sounds like a baby to me, but then again, I've always had this crazy
