I've said it many times, if Trump was a democrat, the outrage by republicans would be the same if not more and rightly so! We've come so accustomed to defending our "political party labels" and ignoring the moral Character, competency and credibility of our leaders.


This is so true.

I think its also why I have such a big problem with Trump supporters (or one of the reasons) its the party affiliation.

I am very must apolitical, my support changes from election to election, yet it feels like at times Trump supporters support Trump to toe the party line.

Funny that Trump has been a democrat in the past.

I wonder how different things would be if he was still a democrat.

I thought about this whole malarkey the other day. There seem to be two sides and each think they are right.
You know what? They are.
Left or right, both are right...
...within their own life experiences and opinions.

A lefty will only see what they believe through experience and ignore all else. So if you grew up in a nice middleclass enclave where foreigners were educated kids from other middleclass families, you'd think it unfair to keep immigrants out.

If you grew up where you had to work hard to gain where you are and had a lot of run ins with gangster culture, got hurt or cheated and you see how they get priority treatment, yeah, you turn right.

Both are right. Their opinions formed from actual experience.

People voted for Trump not because of his hairdo or because they wanted another Hitler who would kill all immigrants, but because the are fed up with the way things have been in the last few years. Obama was the worst president when it came to swanning off on expensive holidays, giving handouts to peers [not whites] but generally not doing much 'presidenting'.

Then they saw rubbish like safespaces appear and the racist protection of minorities, whilst all white people were called racists, despite the fact that white nations have the strictest anti-racist laws and rules. Also white nations have taken in far more immigrants than whole homogenic continents like India or Africa or Middle Eastern ones. Why? Arabs were and still are the biggest slave owners ever in history of slaving, white people meddled for a while and saw it was bad and abolished slavery. Wow, sorry for that.

I would say the majority of people are sick to their teeth. If you are nice to someone forever, give them shelter and help but the whole time you are insulted and called names, even the most benevolent person will one day snap and say "why the fack am I bothering?"

It was because of this, people voted for Trump. They were hoping someone would hear them and not constantly trample on their heads and hearts.
Were they right or wrong with their choice?
Only time will tell but stop having insulting rants at people who are just as right as you may be.

Your point of view may one day become necessary but it is not at the moment. At the moment the majority needs to be heard. So please shut up with your boring, repetitive and frankly childish posts about 'baah bahh Trump supporters ..." rubbish and use your brain to think that there is a reason why this happened.

Also understand that what your experience taught you has made you one way and others another, both which are valid if you walked in either shoes.

To say one side's opinion is wrong and yours is right shows me that you lack complete insight and understanding of how and why opinions are formed. Or on plain english: you are to young to think around the corner and have not had much experience to actually compare your current one with.


Quoted for Truth.

Politics has become like religion for a lot of folks.
It is a bad thing.
People on both sides have lost the ability to read between the lines and find the truth buried in the lies.
People are dug in and only believe what they want to believe.
Kinda sad, really.

It is very much on topic. Among other crap, your post is about believing / using things that are fake all the while you advocate using fake things to further your agenda.

If you can't handle it stay out of the mud pit.

The right, the Trump supporters have coined this new medical condition known as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” to describe the mental state of anyone who does not worship the ground their orange god walks on. I have honestly read some people online who seem to belief that this is a genuine mental health condition.


No.

It's an extension of 'Bush Derangement Syndrome', a term we made up to mock people who disagree with Bush because he was Bush.

We know that social progressivism, modern liberalism and the intense indoctrination/brainwashing you guys got from your 60s hippy teachers are the real mental issue.

I can't help but wonder where this thread is going to go.
I see a bad moon a rising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightning.
I see bad times today.

What I don't see...
Is a reason for this.

should we not try to rise above this??


LOL - that's rich. As long as my ass points to the ground, you'll continue with your anti-Trump-Obsessive-Compulsive-thread disorder, adding little of value to rising above anything. You've made your bed, now lie in it.

Actually part of the problem is many people now deal in absolutes. And we all sometimes Are not immune to that either.

Blame the liberal media for the constant trash articles and fake stories trashing the president. They lost credibility andnow trump supporters are on the defensive.

Here's the thing: the real world has absolutes. What matters is how you choose to deal with that truth.

You know you're right. Trump does have a pretty fanatical following. This is quite common amongst all popular political figures.

One example I can think of is to this day there are people who defend to the death Bush & Blair's unprovoked war of aggression against Iraq. Though this is much less common in Blair's case It seems.

However Trump also has those who hate and despise him so much and see him as such a threat to their cherished status quo that they advocate removing him by force or having spy agencies fabricate evidence to legitimise a coup. So there you go.

I guess it balances out in the end.
