so you agree with this person, and think your OP is the "adult" way to go about this?

Since 1965

Democrats
3 indictments
1 conviction
1 prison sentence

Republicans
120 indictments
89 convictions
34 prison sentences
(and counting!)

Republicans also got the US involved in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam.

You realize that regulations are often beneficial and taxes pay for things so that debt can be kept under control?

. If it takes dirty tactics to take down dirty actors, so be it. That's a Trump supporter in a nutshell.

That is trump in a nutshell. He is a dirty player and he is certain that everyone else is as dirty and low as he is.

Yale psychiatrist explains how devotion to Trump is based on emotional patterns most people grow out of by age five

Raw Story: In your opinion, what are the emotions driving Donald Trump’s base?

Bandy X. Lee: The sense of grandiose omnipotence that he displays seems especially appealing to his emotionally-needy followers. No matter what the world says, he fights back against criticism, continues to lie in the face of truth, and above all is still president. What matters is that he is winning, not whether he is honest or law-abiding. This may seem puzzling to the rest of us, but when you are overcome with feelings of powerlessness, this type of cartoonish, exaggerated force is often more important than true ability. This is the more primitive morality, as we call it, of “might makes right,” which in normal development you grow out of by age five.

But, in this case, Trump appeals to that childlike degree of emotional development? Why?

Strongman-type personalities are very appealing in times of socioeconomic or political crisis, as the population is less able to think rationally but is rather overcome with fear, or desire to draw strength from fantastical ideas. This happens to normal people in times of stress, or to people whose development has been stunted because of emotional injury. The problem is, the person who promises the impossible and states, “I alone can fix it,” and gives himself an A+ on his performance, is not a strong person who can deliver but the opposite. So Mr. Trump’s “base“ looks for someone to rescue them and their intense yearning does not allow them to see through his deception, while Mr. Trump senses better than anyone their needs (they are his) and makes use of them for his own benefit—even as he disdains his supporters for being so gullible. In this manner, they fulfill each other’s emotional needs in a mutually unhealthy way.

This is absolutely true. From browsing ATS, the majority of pro-Trump posts here are simply rants at so called "liberals" without any regard for the truth. Rather than looking towards the future, it's "make america great again". Rather than have an actual vision, they simply bark like dogs at "liberals". Rather than face the truth, they lie and make it sound like they are "winning".

In reality they are emotionally needy. Weak. Fragile. And terrified of losing their power.

The question is to the reader. Are you a 5 year old or are you an adult?

How many of the replies here are going to be dog barks at "liberals", "leftists", "globalists" and crazy insane rants, rather than a rational vision for the future?


Surely if "most" people felt that way, he wouldn't have been elected. Seems like your logic falls short there.

Probably because Brexit is stupid. Your country has done a laughable job of conducting itself in its feeble attempts to "Brexit" and it will harm the health and economy of Britain.

And who got the US involvedf in Vietnam and Iraq? Conservatives.


While I'm no fan of either party, let's not pretend the Democrats are the party of peace.

History would say otherwise.

You're head is so far up your ass I'm surprised you're even able to type.


All I'm doing here is telling the facts. The facts don't care about your feelings.

There's already threads on it, so I won't derail yours by pointing out the obvious.

Thing is though, you wouldn't listen anyway, you are one of those "My tribe" kinda people.

I swear, some of you people truly are delusional!

Uninformed isn't the half of it; you're being intentionally daft and completely ignoring the world you live in! Makes me wonder what color the sky is in your world.

There are zero facts in your OP and subsequent posts.
