During an interview with Yahoo News, presidential frontrunner Donald Trump said if elected he will boost the surveillance grid to fight Islamic terrorism. Trump said, “security is going to rule” under his administration. “We’re going to have to do things that we never did before,” he responded when asked if he would permit the use of warrantless searches at the expense of the Fourth Amendment. “And some people are going to be upset about it, but I think that now everybody is feeling that security is going to rule. And certain things will be done that we never thought would happen in this country in terms of information and learning about the enemy. And so we’re going to have to do certain things that were frankly unthinkable a year ago.”
Has America ever seen a more authoritarian presidential candidate than Donald Trump? Not since FDR—who seized coal mines and department stores, dictated wages and prices, and even weighed whether he should decree when Americans could eat meat.
But at least FDR had a reason: He was fighting a world war. What's Trump's excuse?

I've met tons. You are either not looking hard enough, don't want to look hard enough, or can't tell that you are sitting in an echo chamber. Just FYI, ATS is an echo chamber.

Because everything is based off delegates and super-delegates which is just basically rich people and corporations. Nobody gives a damn if over half the population supported Trump, your votes don't even matter. That's why I don't even bother voting. They're gonna elect their puppet no matter what the sheep want.

I know plenty of people that are voting for Trump and Hillary. The Hillary supporters do not seem to be as concerned about politics in general, but seem to be decently informed. They also don't like being shouted-down by other people like Trump and Sanders supporters.
