thanks, i guess we are all scared for the future, but at the same time there is always hope. What i was taught is when your scared you have to be bolder and fight even harder.

"I think there is an unfortunate trend happening among the public these days, which is to write off politicians completely."


You are right, because people lost their trust in them. Also, most politicians these days lack fiber, personality, you name it.

For me it's been a refreshing change from the typical bloodlines- the Clintons, Bushes, etc.

I feel people are slowly but surely beginning to wake up to all the BS...at least one can hope.

I don't think Trump is Hitler and I do think the people that support him, for the most part, have the best of intentions at heart. They want a change. They know that something is wrong. Something is wrong.

But our fellow member, Blazemore, was close to the mark. It's not that they are unintelligent though. They are misinformed. Many of the people that support someone like Trump has been exposed to years of Right Wing propaganda and are trained to be ignorant of what really weakens this country.

Abortion, gays, Liberals and illegal immigrants are not a threat to this country. They do not weaken this country.

War weakens this country. Out-of-control crony capitalism weakens this country. That includes healthcare, Wall Street, etc. Yet they continue to support those that stand against their own self interests.

At what point do they put their ego aside and see what the hell is really going on here?


What are they misinformed about ?

All of the garbage exists before Trump, whether or not anyone was "informed".

Information is NOT power, not in this case, never was, and never will be.

Picking your poison is the name of the game, and just about anyone with a heartbeat should realize that it is just as fine and dandy to vote for just about anyone, and why not vote for the guy the media has been badmouthing for the last 30 years ??

Tell us, what the hell is REALLY GOING ON HERE ???? L O L

Yeah, I do, to a point.

But how many anti-Bernie rallies or anti-Hillary, anti-Cruz rallies have there been?


These scared anti-Trump people cannot handle even the MENTION that something in this sick deranged system might change in ANY DIRECTION.

Flat out fight or flight response going on, you can see it in the extreme tantrums they display, all the while it is clear they believe the presidency is some holy office that actually controls most things.

What I've noticed. They argue and fail to provide evidence. You provide evidence and they refuse to review it or reject it without reason. If you make an argument they will dodge it and bring up something new without evidence and possibly insult you and others.

From what I read, Bill's girth demanded a large orifice, like Hillary's mouth.

Maybe because some of us are tired of the corruption and bull crap. I'm tired of all the sweetheart deals that everyone is getting but the middle class. If you think for one second that anyone whom works for government is going to help You then You are the problem.

If America is going to change it will be from the bottom up. Putting your faith in a billionaire casino owner is one of the dumbest things anybody could do. Check out the Tax Wall Street Party. Go to work and rebuild the political system. That's what they are trying to do.

They want to tax the highly financialized American money machine in realistic ways that can't be avoided. They want to nationalize the Fed. They want to create jobs in America through infrastructure projects. They want a decent, living minimum wage. They are much like Trump in the sense of wanting to bring industry back to the United States and to rework disadvantageous trade agreements, but they have little else in common with him.

Trump's whole life is all about funny business and maneuvers that give the appearance of scams. He completely wrecked his own business edifice, to the tune of 900 million dollars of debt, and was pulled away from the precipice by the banks. He's the original "too big to fail" guy.

Trump supporters don't want to work for a new country. They want a new country handed to them, by a charlatan.

Trump is like the "greeter" at Costco in the year 2525 from the movie Idiocracy, "Welcome to Costco. I love you."

ATS Conspiracy Break:

If I were a high energy investigative financial reporter working for some hard hitting business newsletter, whose readers wanted the facts and nothing but the facts and "shove the spin where the sun don't shine", and I was interested in sports and conspiracies, I would be digging around trying to figure out why Donald Trump appeared to drive the fledgling United States Football League into the ditch, back in the day, pulling the rug out from under his partners in the process.

Did somebody make the Donald an offer he couldn't refuse?

The first guy I'd try to talk to about this is Burt Reynolds, one of Johnny Basset's old buddies.

en.wikipedia.org...


Bandits' majority owner John Bassett was a strong proponent of the spring football concept and the original budgetary guidelines set by himself and the other original founders of the USFL. However, some owners wished to compete with the NFL for higher-priced players, resulting in many franchises losing substantial amounts of money and causing much instability throughout the league over its short run. In April 1985, the USFL (led by New Jersey Generals owner Donald Trump[6][7]) voted 12-2 to switch to a fall schedule for 1986 in a bid, hoping to compete directly with the NFL and possibly force the more established league to accept a merger. Bassett, who had registered one of the two "nay" votes, immediately declared his intention to pull the Bandits out of the USFL and organize a new spring football league.

a reply to: CosmicSmack I love seeing the devotees run to trumps rescue any time someone dares write anything negative about the great leader. Whenever I've criticised trump, I've never had so many replies to a post from the followers. It's weird.

I kind of feel sorry for the Trump supporters because I know many of them are so sick of the establishment politics, and as Trump's light fades, so does their hope for any meaningful change.

But to them I say look at Bernie. Don't get hung up on the socialist bit. That's your FOX News talking. That right wing mainstream hate machine taught you to fear and hate the socialist with ridiculous comparisons to Hitler while FOX actively promotes xenophobia.... Nothing in Bernie's rhetoric indicates xenophobia, or support for war crimes, or rounding up families... however, same can not be said about Trump and right wing in general.

Turn away from the dark side. See the good in Bernie... Reject the fear based propaganda of the right wing.

I agree with what you said, but I think America should start to show a little depth on the roster of potential Presidents. I'm hoping for a brokered convention and a "knight in shining armor" to appear. Michael Bloomberg is somebody who might be on my wish list, if I were a Republican.

I don't like chaos and I think we are heading for it.


Heading for it? Have you looked out your window recently? The world is in the depths of chaos and has been for some time.

You know I think that is happening on both sides, and make no mistake there are only two sides now; Trump and anti-Trump. There are obvious reasons as to why this is.

The light side is following a guy who was a bum for 40 years? Somehow I think he's even less qualified than the casino owner......

But that guy represents the very essence of his voters.. 'the takers'. It's why he is so popular.

Right takers that vote for more taxes. Makes sense.

Indeed it does - handouts from other people paying more taxes.
