THAT is what the founding fathers wanted to see.... we have the anecdotal quote attributed to Ben Franklin -- “A Republic, if you can keep it.” Right now, we are not keeping it very well, we have become bad stewards of our Foundational Greatness. A Greatness built on the premise of compromise, something we let go 20 years ago, it is not a recent phenomenon.....
I spent a lot of time reading online yesterday
I came away with the feeling that this wobbling towards calamity might be a good thing for us
We'll know better - in a few years. Good luck to us all

I thought ATS was anti establishment and all about exposing politicians, the news media , the NWO
There is nothing right wing about that.

No. I'm more concerned of the sanity of his opposers, who have traded ethics and country for party and special interest.

You mean he wasn't acting insane already?
At this point they are going to roll him out on the stage for the 3rd debate like Hanibal Lecter in a cage-dolly.
Sounds like fun.
Hope he doesn't blow the 3rd debate off.
"There’s a big Trump and a little Trump,”..... “The little Trump is frankly pathetic."
And for a chunk of his speech on Friday, Trump did just that, forcefully denying the allegations that he kissed and groped several women without their consent -- actions that he had bragged about being able to do in a 2005 tape -- and arguing that if just a sliver of voters believe those allegations, he will lose the election.
"If 5% of the people think it's true -- and maybe 10% -- we don't win," Trump said.
Trump's rant on Friday came less than two hours after two more women came forward to allege Trump groped them without their consent. One of women, Summer Zervos, made her accusations during Trump's rally.
But Trump on Friday disputed the account of the other woman, Kristin Anderson, calling her story "nonsense" and "false," arguing that he rarely sits alone, even though Anderson never claimed Trump was sitting alone at the time of the incident.
"I was sitting alone by myself and then I went wah to somebody," Trump said, motioning to his side as he attempted to re-enact Anderson's account of his behavior.
As he did a day earlier, Trump again argued on Friday that the allegations are part of a global conspiracy by the "establishment" -- including the media and powerful special interests -- to defeat his campaign.
"The whole thing is one big fix. It's one big fix. It's one big ugly lie. It's one big fix. The press can't write the kind of things they write, which are lies, lies, lies," Trump said. "The only thing I said is hopefully, hopefully our patriotic movement will overcome this terrible deception."
Trump repeatedly denied the allegations a half-dozen women have leveled against him just this week: "All false. Totally invented. Fiction. All 100% totally and completely fabricated."

I think his "revealing" is going to affect the rest of his life and business opportunities.
Self Destruction - - - BOOM!

It's begun. He's begun to melt down. It started on Friday night, then completed itself today on Wednesday Oct 12th/13th.
I suspect that he'll really melt down now if he takes any questions or does a formal interview, but his refusal to do so otoh, oh man I'm glad I'm not advising his campaign.. what a nightmare!
