O god .. another trump is awesome thread...

Incapable of analyzing trump without a bias perspective. The guy has increased drone strikes on civilians by 300%.

Im not saying he's hitler or anything, but damn; could ATS just jump off this infallible cult-of-personality trump train?

It's starting to become idiocracy when the president trashes other congresswomen on twitter and crowds of lemmings cheer as if he's accomplished something great.

Enjoy your idiocracy. (Btw i don't hate trump and he has done some good things. I just hate this cult of personality worship that his followers project.)
Lol, none of that describes me πŸ˜‚
I never heard of the guy until he was standing for election and I read all bitching and moaning about him right here on ATS. I'm British mate, I ain't got a dog in this fight. I've followed him on Twitter since he became POTUS and while obviously I bet he can be a right prick if you cross him, heck so can I, I think he's changed politics for the better worldwide. None of the bull#### diplomacy, says it as he sees it and seems to do what he says.

An other member said he has increased drone strikes but I can tell you this much, Britain has killed more civilians by proxy in the last year than Trump ever has. Our biggest export market for arms is Saudi ffs, and we know full well that they use them to kill innocents.

Everyone is at it, always been the way and always will, but would I choose Trump to lead my nation, hell yeah, he's got his human failings but as a leader of his people he does what it said on the tin.

I love my country with all of my heart
I genuinely believe that Trump does too.
I love it when he tells other world leaders to basically go #### themselves lol, and you guys are pretty much the only nation who can stand up to China these days, I'd want him leading my nation as well if I was American.
We could have done with someone like him negotiating our divorce from the EU ffs πŸ˜‚

Lmao, I knew I'd get stick off British members for posting this thread, how to get deported in one easy lesson πŸ˜‚
I'm not alone though, my real life mates agree with most of what I've posted...and I swear there is one other member from the UK who doesn't hate Trump as well.
And if anyone wants to call me racist as well feel free to do it, I posted in the mudpit for a reason...but you ask me which nations I have more in common with then it's obviously US/Can/Aus/NZ, even South Africans, Caribbean folk and Ghanaians, basically those of us who speak English. I love my eastern European friends, but only those I can actually understand, so if Trump is up for closer working, trading, movement of people whatever in some deal which doesn't screw us over too bad, I'm game for that.

Nothing against the French or Germans, but they'd screw us in a heartbeat if it is in their mutual interests.

I think bullying is massively overused these days, or as his Trumpness would say, Bigly πŸ˜‚
Same as racist, and sexist, and misogynistic, any phobe word, and passive aggressiveness, oh and micro aggressions lol, #### me we've never had it so good in the developed world, but whine and cry seems the new thing.
Even my adult children grieve for their generation, what half of them would do in a crisis moment #### only knows!

If I criticize Trump or followers, why do you automatically I am a liberal or support everything liberals do. You are right Democrats have a lot of problems and censorship is an issue. However automatically shoving everybody into left or right paradigms is also a problem.

Yes the media is a problem (on both sides). They rather talk about Stormy Daniels then what's going on in the Middle East. They know if they criticize Trump on the Middle East also have to criticize Obama.

My only point was that people seem incapable of criticizing Trump just because the liberal media goes after him in a ridiculous way. Then you fall into the Trap of protecting Donald Trump no matter what in response to the liberal media.

It's the game being played on both sides to further push people to the far left or far right. Thats why you immediately resorted to going on about the Democrats.

Be careful what you wish for, Cali could declare independence if Trump wins a second term! πŸ˜‚


Then after the Chinese and Russians begin their invasion of Cali, we could take it back and remove the leftist that remain alive to a small place we have in Cuba, with gray bars and some serious fencing.

Hmm.. okay maybe you're right on changing politics fof the better. Well , i hope. Trump has certainly brought a lot of disillusionment and the political circus two lights amongst a lot of people.

People are defending everything trump says and on the other side tge left is villifying trump af every nano-second.

I just hope that people don't buckle down on their political sides and instead wake up to the BS that is politics.

I got to admit, i rather have trump over hillary. Trump is a step closer to a honest POTUS. I just don't like that people tend to buckle down on their political tribes and forgoe being critical of their own people.

Anyway.. srry for shiating on your thread. I may have over reacted

Haha no worries mate πŸ‘ I got more Brits on my case about this thread than I seem to have from your guys!
We are becoming polarised here in the UK, massive split, basically leavers or remainers for the EU, there is no grey area, you are either a racist bigot wanting independence of a socialist commie if you want to remain lol.
Honestly I'm surprised there's been no riots yet, hopefully it will be sorted by end October because as we all know, Brits don't riot when it's pissing down with rain πŸ˜‚

I have to say, I agree with every damn word you wrote.
I'm an old school lefty type, but I can't fault the bloke and boy does he give me a laugh.

The perfect antidote to those prissy, holier than thou hypocrites that usually infest the political arena.

Haha! ####ing brilliant mate! I knew there was at least one other Brit who thinks similar πŸ˜‚
He's a million times better than the gutless, spineless, and weasel worded limp rags of politicians we have too many of in Britanistan!! Lol, sounds like you are an average bloke as well just seeing him for who he is πŸ‘

I am sure, there's plenty of reasons I wouldn't actually get on with him, but the amount of hate he gets is mental.

And you were right comparing it to leave remain here. I usually read the guardian online cos it's free and the comments section can be a troll's wet dream.

Maybe it's an age thing? We've probably seen more real gits than the younger, angrier crowd.

Good point about the age thing, same experience of actually being poor. We've never had it so good in the developed world. I'm piss poor cash wise, but my life is way better than poverty as a child of the 70s and 80s.
#### me, crying cupboards, micro aggressions, everything is summet phobe lol, I sometimes think wtf is happening to society, I genuinely just don't get it.

Edit, remember beatings off bouncers and if you didn't moan and behaved they'd let you back in the club next week? My oldest is jealous as #### when I tell him stories of the crazy days, now you just get banned for months and the whole PubNet group bar you as well πŸ˜‚

Haha, yeah.
You are dead on.
I remember proper pubs with proper landlords who knew how to have a laugh but weren't shy of lumping someone if they got out of line.
Today is far easier, but so much less fun in so many ways, everything is regulated up the Ying Yang.

Yes lmao!
I bumped into my local MP not so long ago, he hates me lol, but he was on some litter pick gig in some sidestreets, first thing I asked him was 'Dude, why are you wearing a high viz vest and safety glasses?' he replied 'health and safety of course' to which I pissed laughing saying wtf man you're stood on the same pavement as me, what, you reckon some crazy drunk driver is gonna mow you down?! Lmfao! And walked away laughing as he didn't know what to say.
####ing wrapped in cotton wool gutless snowflake πŸ˜‚

Edit, he voted to bomb Syria a couple of years ago now, I called him out and he's blocked me from Twitter and Facebook lol

I rather like 'your' Nigel Farage. That guy rocks, and also speaks truth to power.

I love listening to him debate in the EU parliament.

The UK has some very capable and honest politicians, it is just right now they are in the minority.

I think capable and bluntly honest politicians are scarce currently around the planet, unfortunately. Most politicians are not such.
