plus idiots act a fool towards him.



This is my second post, and the first where I've quoted. Apologies if this doesn't appear properly in the thread.

Anyhow, this reason you've pointed out is essentially the prime reason I consider myself a Trump supporter - if I can honestly claim to support any of the candidates. The shame of it is that it has close to nothing to do with supporting Trumps platform and practically everything to do with the satisfaction of spiting my liberal/progressive peers. To be clear, I'm not bragging about it; I feel more like I'm making a dirty confession.

The city I live in is renowned for its progressive politics (or Godlessness, depending upon who you ask) and I am a musician, which means that the political fare I'm typically treated to by my peers is of the far-left variety...pretty much all the way to the left in ways I'm sure you can easily conceive.

I would be utterly blacklisted in my community if it were common knowledge.

Trump was sued by someone from the union involved and dragged the case through the courts for an unheard of 15 years before finally agreeing to a settlement, the terms of which were sealed by the court. He paid. The union was happy with the settlement.

Hitler started out saying mean things. According to Ivana, the Donald used to keep a book of Hitler's speeches on the bedside table. His political persona is that of a "milk and cookies" Hitler, granted, but it is still worrying.

Trump's clothing line is made in Mexico and China.

"the Donald used to keep a book of Hitler's speeches on the bedside table"


If you take aside all the killings, the scare tactics, the man was a great orator, I dont see anything wrong about someone keeping a book...

There may be class war in the United States, or an impending class war, but Donald Trump is the last person in the world who should be leading it. A class war whose leader wasn't a millionaire's shyster son would be far more believable. This is where the dumbed down quality of the average American comes in.

They aren't class warriors. They are class wannabes who are lapping up the poison fed to them by somebody who has been taking their money for decades and breaking rules he says he is going to enforce.

Hitler was a very shrewd social Darwinian politician. He was a cynical person when it came to politics and his chief method of getting what he wanted was to lie to the public. I think the fact that Trump, in some ways, demonstrates similar political tactics, is cause for concern.

Satire:

Most liberals and even some Conservatives done like Trump because they are afraid he might create them a job and have to help pay taxes.

Trump is not anti-establishment as he is popularly believed to be. No billionaire is, and as you point out, he acts like every other politician. If it walks like a duck . . . etc.

Like it or not Trump supporters have convinced themselves that Donald Trump is not just another politician, but he is just another politician. In fact he might be worse, because unlike all of those other politicians, he has been slick enough to actually convince people that he is not a politician.

both idiots TBH

i suppose the good thing with this is that he has billions, so pay off's from corporations would not be much interest to him.

like Hillary takes money to do speeches etc.

just a thought but think they are

I've had experience with people whose posts consist of a dozen or more links before, in the 9/11 forum. Posts like that are a waste of my time. I'm not fooled by them and neither is anybody else.

Ah I love liberals. They call other people idiots, fail to provide evidence, do not argue against your arguments and do not even glance at your evidence.

Have you read the Tarpley article yet?

And by the way, I'm a conservative, a former Bush supporter (betrayed! grrrr
), but a compassionate conservative who doesn't see enlightened conservatism as a way of sneaking the slave economy back in by the side door.
