At least what they are saying has some basis in reality. The leftists just keep calling him a racist xenophobe, which does not.

But I hope that you do realize that Trump is not a part of their club right? Try thinking, it helps. ~$heopleNation

Where were they to articulate the feelings of many Americans regarding Obama? Oh, that's right. They were busy calling us racist.

Not impressed.

They are aware of the uses of language to manipulate and for that reason anything they write is suspect.

Also, we are not a democracy.


Well said. Where were these outspoken individuals when obama was for GMO labeling before office, but then signed the monsanto protection act while in office?

Having said that, I'm not sure Trump is right for presidency. He has no political background for reference. I understand people liking him for being seemingly honest and not bowing down to the P.C. police. However, that seems to be the only thing going for him. Well that, and hes got a good business sense. You know, as long as he uses it for the american people...

I don't know what club Trump belongs to but it's not the one you think it is. In 6 months, I predict you will be thinking olaru12 was right all along.

Because like I said, They clearly suffer from narcisstic personality disorder. ~$heopleNation


I don't mean this as an insult, but there is a strange tactic employed by some on the right, to blindly accuse the accusers of whatever the accusation is...

Trump does not have a "narcissistic personality disorder"...but anyone that criticizes him does?

It always seems something like a grown man's equivalent to "I know you are, but what am I?"..

I say that because I am interested in the SUBSTANCE of what you think...It would be nice to hear it?

Yes...These authors failure to create an open letter challenging President Obama's position on GMO labeling means that they should never express their opinions on Presidential Candidates.

Is that sound thinking to you?

A terrible businessman


He's had 4 failed businesses out of what 100? He's a good businessman. Hate him all you want, but give credit where it's due.


Trump's Atlantic City Casino's going bankrupt wasn't his fault, Pennsylvania legalized gambling and most of the New York gamblers started going to the PA. casino's. It has devastated Atlantic City's Casino's and the city's taxable income.

It was an example of how these authors cannot, or would not, rally to expose deception and dishonesty for president obama. It may have not been the best example, but I was trying to give reason as to why we should trust these author's opinions.

Why do their opinions matter? Do they have a record of bringing awareness to dishonesty and corruption within the white house? How do we know these authors aren't all liberals and/or democrats that jumped on this open letter to support their party?

i can't help but wonder why they would oppose a turd like Trump, but not the countless other turds who would seem to fit the verbiage?

Im not gonna argue with them....but i am going to ignore them.

It's possible, but don't think that Trump is some kind of hero to everyone who supports him, some people like me support him because the entire establishment on both of the fake two sides are against him.

Let downs are to be expected with any Politician, but as long as he tries to do something about the government enabled illegal foreign invasion of the USA, that will be enough for me. ~$heopleNation

There are people who don't see what makes Trump different from the others, and those people can't be helped. I'm sorry you don't see it.

That's simple..

Because, as Trump Supporters rightly and repeatedly claim, Trump is "different" than other Presidential candidates.

You're missing the point that these people are arrogant idiots with big heads who somehow believe that their opinions will sway free thinking minds, but I doubt you understand anything about that.

It's very possible that he is, it would be hard for most individuals to accumulate all that wealth without being so. Probably takes one to be POTUS, lol.


It always seems something like a grown man's equivalent to "I know you are, but what am I?"..


Yes perception is a funny thing, just as reckless assumptions are as well.


I say that because I am interested in the SUBSTANCE of what you think...It would be nice to hear it?


Well it's important for you to realize that I am not here to amuse you, nor answer all of your baited questions. Understand now?

Good! I hope that cleared things up for yuh. ~$heopleNation

I have seen that tactic way too many times and another one I've seen a lot which sounds equally juvenile is something like "i don't agree with trump but I'm thinking of voting for him just because you don't like him!"

It's like a threat, or childish rebellion... Purely emotional defiant response. Not at all based on logic or reason.

I see that sentiment often.

"the entire establishment on both of the fake two sides" would also oppose Kim Kardashian for President...would you support her?

Sometimes the enemy of your enemy is not your friend, but just an A-hole of such magnitude that they are a threat to all involved.

Are you posting your "opinions" due to arrogance and a big head? With the expectation that your "opinions will sway free thinking minds"?

Or is there a virtue in saying what you think in a free society where free political speech is cherished?

its not that i don't see what you are seeing. its that i am a cynical old bastard.

i believe nothing any of them says. its what you DO that matters. Lip service has the same value as a wad of gum on the street.

The cynical old bastard cop out...cannot wait till I am a little older and can pull that one too...


As far as these authors...who cares. There was a time that people were invited to the WH to discuss what could happen in war time (Clancy and others have advised) but seriously. I could care less what Stephen King thinks about Trump or even politics.

This is just distraction. At this point in the game if a person is going to choose to vote based on this then stay the fark home please.

i figure its more acceptable tot he world to just tell them im cynical, rather than admitting to being a raging asshole. But take your pick, its all the same to me.

I think you're under the false assumption that I am the topic of this thread. Do you not comprehend that the rules here require posters to discuss the subject?

Attack the message, not the messenger maybe ring a bell? And of course I will give my opinions concerning this thread, that is what we do here on ATS. ~$heopleNation
