He's leading polls in New York and in California. I don't see how he can be stopped on the way to the Republican nomination. The Trump momentum is real, and serious and really serious. This is no joke.

Why do people support Donald Trump?

I have my own theory. I had an insight during the administration of George W. Bush, post 9/11, when I realized that the ideal person perps would want, to steer idiots wrong through a complicated situation, was another idiot.

It became clear to me that the oligarchy had finally succeeded in "dumbing down" the American population to the point where a majority of them would believe any cockamamy story, no matter how ludicrous, as long as it was explained to them by someone on their level.

It was a chilling moment. I realized that the "truth movement" was doomed by the downward shift of the middle of the statistical bell curve of the national I.Q.

Decades of TV, football, on line porn, drugs, dance clubs and daytime televangelism had finally payed off.

The looting of the American economy by banks and the military industrial complex drove increasing numbers of people out of the work force completely or into very marginal jobs or term employment. More and more money migrated to the "oners", many of whom, shipped it offshore and out of the economy.

All very ominous.

However, I didn't see what was coming next, although there was a hint of it during the Obama administration, when there was some attempt to form a "national youth organization" reminiscent of Germany's "Hitler Youth" or the "Young Pioneers" of the Soviet Union.

The advent of Donald Trump clarified things for me. He put the spotlight on the fact that just as Germany, in the economically desperate 1920s, had reached a critical mass of people ready to rally around a dictatorial crackpot, America's population of the desperate and dumbed down, heading into the 2016 presidential election, has reached the critical mass required to make a gaudy, egomaniacal casino owner into a serious and very demagogic contender for president.

Webster Tarpley, of World Crisis Radio and tarpley.net, draws the parallels with fascism on the rise much more lucidly and in more detail than I do in an article at the following link.

tarpley.net...-9599


Fascism – The Organized Violence and Terrorism of the 1% Against the People; Carried Out by Demagogues and Goons in the Service of Wall Street; To Understand Trump, Study the Mussolini Of 1921-22 and the Hitler of 1923 – Not Fascism in Power, but Fascism Struggling to Seize Power



I voted for Obama twice! I am voting for Trump (actually did already in Florida). I am for Trump because I want a true outsider (never a politician) who's angle is put America on top. Obama on the other hand thinks we owe the world something. Boy was he a mistake.

You obviously don't understand the meaning of authoritarian.

Socialism (bigger, more powerful federal government) is authoritarian.

Classic liberalism and libertarian principles (smaller less powerful government) are the polar opposite of authoritarian.

I have worked for 30 years straight. Doing well. If Bernie wins and maybe even if Hillary wins, I will use a disability I have to take social security early and just chill from here on out (am 48). I am tired of paying other people way with nearly 30% tax rate. I have enough retirement + Social Security + 401k to just chill. I am not paying another dime in taxes to support lazy bums or illegal immigrants.

I had planned to work till 67 but eh...why put all this effort in while others sit in mom and dads basement taking my hard earn cash?

Quotes following bated questions like the abortion thread one.


Yes, the MSM works that angle to get rid of him. Whose orders, that we probably won't know.

They banned me from their subreddit.
Someone started a thread about Sanders doing some prepping. I simply stated he's had a lot of practice with prepping.

If you insult Sanders or any one of his supporters you are a racist Nazi who has no rights to use reddit, don't you know.

I wear it as a badge of honor, I got banned for just mentioning that Sanders went 0/5 a few weeks ago while they were devising a whole new branch of mathematics to prove that Bernie still has a shot at the nomination.

That subreddit has some serious e-policing going on.
