I for one think that if Trump thinks he can get away with actually carrying out one of these 'jokes' he won't hesitate in doing so.


I doubt he'd be at all interested in a third term.

I can't think of a single President, since FDR, who'd have even considered it. The office ages them to an incredible extent.

Obama is younger than me by a decade plus, yet after his 8 years in office, he looked a decade older, at the very least.

He's forbidden by law from doing so...but the law is unnecessary--no President in the past almost 3/4's of a century have shown any thoughts of doing anything of the sort. Trump won't either. That's assuming, of course, that he's reelected for his second term.

Limiting Preisdent's to two terms of office is definitely one of the things you guys have got right.

However, leaving the respective politics aside, I don't think its wise for a person of either Trump or Biden's age to be President.
You'd maybe expect them to have the experience and know how to handle the job with the dignity and respect required but I'm not sure they quite have the drive and vision required to force through policies.
It lends itself to ego's.....something abundently evident with Trump's approach to presiding over things.

And the danger of having a septuagenarian in Office can't be made any clearer than Biden's choice of Vice President, a truly frightening prospect!

I'm sorry but I have to disagree with you about Trump and his desire for a third term.
If possible I honestly think he'd push for a Presidency for life.....his ego is his primary driver, make no mistake about that.

That's four years down the line, who knows what will transpire during those years......12 months ago who'd have guessed we'd be where we are now?

Trump loves to damage already fragile Liberal minds.


The problem is that too many of those liberal minds are evil.

There is nothing more dangerous than a crazy evil liberal.

Hopefully after President Trump is re-elected, he will take appropriate action to get them out of our society.


But its really the left who are evil fascists who want to rid society of all those who disagree with them! You're sick in the fcking head dude. Get help.

I love how trump sees a hornets nest and throws a brick at it.

Trump speaking at a rally Saturday says we are probably entitled to a third term for him as President.

Now what he said was that we, the group at the rally, were going to win in 52 days and get a second term.
Then he says, after that we will negotiate...
Because after the way he's been treated he probably is entitled to a third term.

This was obviously in jest and only said to ruffle some feathers but I thought it was hilarious.

www.businessinsider.com...

I would post the video clip but I'm on my phone and don't know how....haha


I've been saying this. The left has tried to tie this admins hands however they could for the past three years....he should get that time back.

Also they should have to pay court fees and and work without pay for some time to offset the time and money they wasted.

I'm thinking it's constitutional water under the bridge, gull...
and while even if what the Demorats did was technically legal
on the surface--- it also watered down the effectiveness of the
whole Trump administration.

Even if nothing at all comes from the Durham-Barr
investigation: and we Qsters and others are left with nothing but
the disaffected deaf media... there IS no do-over. It's why I
dread a recount, it's a license to cheat twice and even better.

Sum: do I trust in the will of the people being accurately counted?
Not since 1963, maybe earlier. And Dick Daley didn't need electro-
nics NOR voting machines. He had real machinery: devoted slaves.
Yeah, the nutshell turned over I wonder myself about Mr. Trump's 2nd.

Curious.
What do you think constitutes 'appropriate action'?
Where exactly does it start and where exactly does it finish?

More than a third term...Trump needs a bigly spot in the history books. So thinking back to past presidents one really stands out...Thomas Jefferson. And what was President Jefferson know for the most? The Louisiana Purchase because of the end round Congress for the betterment of America.

So for Trump, I say the ultimate in October Surprises....the California Selloff. Getting rid of Pelosi, Schiff, Harris, et al would be of great benefit to the country. We could pay off some of the national debt. If Mexico buys it, they would literally have paid for the wall.

I'd give trump a 300th term - imagine the slogans - Trump 2720 - make America intergalactic


Of course he will be broke by then and have to take the paycheck, also be an all powerful immortal cyborg with Ai - but still Americas cheerleader I bet.

Fragile?

Have you seen trumps Twitter feed? It's the most fragile, thin-skinned defensive sob-fest on the Internet.

And what sort of man would demean that great Office with his constant stream of 'jokes' and mis-speaks?
Do you not see how with every single 'joke' or mis-speak he discredits the position of POTUS just a little bit more each time?

ETA

Oh, and its hardly a 'hilarious' joke by any stretch.


Nope, is one of the ways he attracts the attention of voters. What I find hilarious is that you, whom claim to be "a freeborn" would rather vote for a real liar, and flip flopper like Biden. At least he didn't lie in stating he would put fake Hispanic O'Reorke in charge of taking people's firearms. Like a socialist/communist dictator would do, and have done.
Biden didn't lie that he would put closet communist Sanders in charge of healthcare to transform our healthcare into a "National healthcrap." He didn't lie in stating he would put AOC, another closet communist, in charge of the "Green New Deal." Just those three policies alone will destroy the U.S. economy, and would leave us at the mercy of a socialist/communist dictatorship, meanwhile Biden and his commie friends arm the BLM, Antifa, anarchists loyalists.

Nonsense.
He makes himself look a fool and with every single 'joke' and 'mis-speak' he discredits that great Office just a little bit more.
He's an egotistical delusionist.

You have NO idea why I called myself Freeborn when I joined this site over thirteen years ago.

I would take the time to explain to you but my previous interactions with you make me think it would be a pointless exercise because you have such a locked in take on things and you would either fail to understand and/or simply deny the reasons I gave you as it goes against your pre-conceived ideas and you lack the ability to change your mind.



.....would rather vote for a real liar, and flip flopper like Biden.


I've repeatedly and quite clearly stated that I would never, ever vote for Biden.
Why do you persist with the misconception that just because people dislike Trump and/or his 'politics' that they must automatically support Biden?
That's just plain #ing stupid and shows a complete inability to understand that there are far more viewpoints and perspectives other than those espoused by those two #ing morons who are both thoroughly unfit for such a great office of POTUS.

Oh, and I'm British.

Your obsession with 'commies' is unhealthy.

I'm still an anarchist at heart - tempered with age and the reality that the more base elements of human nature will always undermine such a utopian dream.
It used to amaze me that so many American's with alleged 'Libertarian' views can not see just how similar Anarchism and Libertarianism are.
Now it just amuses me.

I used to go to great lengths to explain how closely alligned these two ideologies are and post links as support.....but its proved largely a wasted exercise because people either couldn't be arsed to read it or refused to accept what had been pointed out as it made them very uncomfortable and challenged their locked in belief systems.

Anarchism and libertarianism are similar in a lot of ways. And very different in others. A libertarian would never disrespect or infringe upon the private property of another. He or she would never believe they were entitled to take it. And where the anarchist wants to abolish all forms of authority and government, a libertarian wants to keep a very small and limited government, with responsibilities in fighting wars, resolving conflicts and upholding the rights of private property and individual rights. In other words, a night watchman state.

Just powerful enough to make sure a big enough group of people can't get together and inflict their will on individuals.

Well said sir. However I would differ on the Anarchist take, not so much as to abolish all forms of government; But to abolish anything over the local level.

Disclaimer I am not an Anarchist.

Thanks for the clarification CrawlingChaos
I was worried one or more of my descriptions was a little off


I'm certainly no fan of the federal government, considering the potential for its abuse and the demonstrated abuses we have seen time and time again

I agree, which was why I said how similar Anarchism and Libertarianisn are.....similar not exactly the same.




A libertarian would never disrespect or infringe upon the private property of another.


Nor would a true Anarchist.



He or she would never believe they were entitled to take it.


Again, nor would a genuine Anarchist.
Unfortunately that's where the more 'base elements of human nature' creeps in.

There is always someone seeking to use, control, manipulate situations and people for their own betterment and advantage.
It's how every single ism mankind has thought up ultimately fails; man's desire for power and to control.



And where the anarchist wants to abolish all forms of authority and government, a libertarian wants to keep a very small and limited government, with responsibilities in fighting wars, resolving conflicts and upholding the rights of private property and individual rights. In other words, a night watchman state.


I could debate the benefits of both but unfortunately in this modern world I fear both are unattainable.

In an Anarchist's utopian ideal there would be no need to fight wars etc and man's inalienable rights would be respected by all.



Just powerful enough to make sure a big enough group of people can't get together and inflict their will on individuals.


But your country so clearly shows how that goes. (And yes I know, my country is far from perfect too).

I'm not claiming I have all the answers - to be honest I don't think I have any answers - but I do think we both could and should have far better than what we have today.
