I'll be watching to see what other self incriminating things TRump can spew out



Its all a show.


I think that's exactly what Trump told the President of Mexico, regarding making him pay for the wall.. wasn't it?

I am happy there is one less Democrat but I wish Trump would just start a new party.

I want a purely libertarian party that holds both left and right ideals.

After Trump, unless his kids run and are worthy, I am going back to being apolitical until the next underdog with the right ideas.


it would be in your country's interest to get a left wing party.
two parties arguing over military budgets or how to grease the palms of private health companies doesn't present anything different.
having a left wing party would allow the democrats to become the centrist party they appear to long for, i don't think republicans can shift any further to the right without introducing a uniform and youth movement.

That's exactly who I thought of when I read this.

If Winston wasn't the 20th century's most accomplished politician, I'm hanged if I can think of who it might have been...

Rat, re-rat, and get away with it for how many years?

So...he switches parties...does this make him a different person somehow? I think not.

The party system is a score-card. Politics is sports.

Hell, there's a rally of feverish fans...

What a joke it has all become. Perhaps he is confused of his political identity? An "I" perphaps? He is transpolitical-ed (need a better word)? Does he identify as an R or a D? Is he RDIGL friendly? Hmm...

Nope..same guy. Simply aligning his political position with WINNERS. Sports players do that all the time.

What does he win? There are prizes involved too?

This is my point. It's a game; a contest. There is nothing constructive happening in politics no matter where we look.

Based on what we've seen in the past 8 years, you're right. But the alternative is to have a dictatorship. If he/she is a good one, everybody wins. If not, most citizens will lose.

Sometimes I think a dictatorship is the only way to accomplish anything. Not what I want, of course, but unfortunately true.

Our laws, policies, ways of life have been reduced to a battle between redshirts and blueshirts. No one (perhaps a couple) is interested in advancing the United States, they are only interested in winning this political game for themselves or their "team".

Anyway, I'm thread-drifting so I'll be quiet. Simply-put, switching political affiliation because you view one side as "winning" is ridiculous. If you yourself have a change of heart concerning basic/fundamental ideals - ok, then. Personally, I don't even want to know an individual's party. I want to know the individual.

When the Left has gone full blown Commie, and the Right is leaning Socialist... it's refreshing to see a DEM move towards the Center...


That's what the Gov meant when he said the DEMOCRATIC party left him....
