Cool opinion OP, but it is of my opinion that Trump is what's best for this country.

You have ZERO Proof he is destroying our Democracy.

What it sounds like is an emotional rant because you simply don't like his character, well too bad?

The beauty as an American is you can use your vote to vote him out 🤗

I don't beat around the bush, Trumps firebrand approach is exactly what this country needs to break the grip of the Establishment, to rock this nation with tweets and light the fire, he has certainly done that.

I have a President who doesn't fear China and tariffs them for their bad trade practices.

I have a President who is humble in tense situations, calling off Drone strikes because of potential collateral damage.

I have a President who acts when Americans are in danger and respond by taking out whoever, whenever, like the second most powerful man in Iran.

I have a President who isn't afraid to speak his mind, tells it how it is and gets the job done.

I have a President, who's resolve is so great, that he has endured attacks about him and his family from a sprawling liberal media Empire, attacks from Congressional politicians, Fruitless investigations amounting to millions yeilding ZERO results, obstructing our President from ever getting anything done and the sullying of our sacred impeachment process, God Bless this Man.

As stated, he didn't have to leave his billionaire lifestyle to endure defamation, lies, slander and BS, he left it because he is at the point in his life where he wants to give back and what better way than President?

Trump is exactly what we need in this day and age, his results and actions speak for themselves, you people care too much about what others think, pay attention to yourself and our Country.

I’m not sure how you can even ask such a question when the left raises the bar of stupidity on a daily basis. Why would you be silent about that? Do you just bury your head and pretend like it doesn’t exist? Serious question


I'm not silent? I'm right here. The democratic stupidity is a result of the republican stupidity.

It's a loop we are in. I place most of the blame at the top. Where it should be. And that is Trump, who calls himself Republican.

People seem to like Trump because he "gets things done" and "takes it to the libs."
To the former, he *does* get things done, but he does it at the expense of democracy. He, and many of his supporters, believe he can do *anything* he wants, Constitution and checks and balances be damned. He believes he has sole power, and can do whatever he wants, with no accountability, just like a dictator, or a king, which is exactly why we have the government and the checks and balances on power that we do. That is the danger.

During the primary, I thought Kasich was the most reasonable and level headed Republicans. He was also one of the first to drop out because he was polling so poorly. That is telling about the GOP, when combined with the fact that a demagogue like Trump got the nomination and won and is still supported by a largely ignorant base.

In many aspects, Trump rides the heels of Obama (economy, jobs), while both taking credit for and undoing things that affect us all: elimination of clean water/clean air standards, national monuments open to corporate development, and undermining who we are as a nation: travel bans, discrimination, the free press, hate, division, enemy of the people, little transparency, consolidation of executive power, coddling dictators and undermining, disparaging, and criticizing and severing our long held ties with allies.

He has no respect for America or the Constitution. He is a selfish POS that people rally around because MAGA and Libs Bad. That is the danger.

If affects all of us.

Generally, I find your OP grossly unaware, uninformed, undiscerning about POTUS TRUMP almost to the point of being wholesale in the DIMs fantasy land.

The Democratic field this election year is garbage. Almost as bad as Hillary.


But then you sound like you have little awareness of how unmitigatedly evil (she is literally a practicing witch per multiple Secret Service reports of her monthly travels to L.A. for seances, curse flinging coven meetings).

Research "The 16 year plan" that she and O'B were assigned to.

Research the Marxist globalists in their own words:

www.globalistoligarchy.org...

Her 2nd 4 years after destroying the 1st & 2nd amndmts her 1st 4, she was assigned to literally start WW3 & reduce the USA to ashes.

The Marxist globalist oligarchy has long had that as a goal because the USA is the main thing delaying their set-up of their genocidal depopulation Marxist globalist global dictatorship of total tyranny, no freedoms & only 500 million allowed to live (see the watered down goals at the Georgia Guidestones).



I like Pete but he will never win.


Yet again you sound utterly irrational. Pete is a dyed-in-the-wool MARXIST GLOBALIST with the same general goals as HRC & her puppet masters. Why on earth would you give him a nanosecond of thought or support--unless you are truly that uninformed, devoid of awareness or living in some sort of mental lala land?


[ quote]
Bernie is ok but he is near to death.


NO!!!!!!!!!! MARXIST BERNIE IS !!!!NOT!!!! OK!

He thought the Soviets building their canal were wonderful. He either was too ignorant about the massive deaths of their slave labor or he didn't care. Either way, he doesn't deserve to be the lead driver of a trash truck.

He was kicked out of his early life Communist Commune because he refused to work. He just liked to lay around & talk about the revolution.

His staff members--still on his payroll--have been recorded by Project Veritas praising the Soviet gulags as not as bad as our prisons! Obviously, they & Bernie are ignorant of Solzhenitsyn's painful long first person report of such. Or, he thinks such is just fine in the service of the dictatorship.

I assume he assumes he'll be one of those "Pigs more equal than others" at the top of the trash heap they make of everything they touch. Witness Venezuela--once one of the top economies of the world. Now with citizens reduced to eating pets, grasses etc.



I'm 90% certain Trump will win re-election. I can't understand why other than our much better 401k's. I feel he is great for our economy at the expense of ruining our democracy.

If Trump could do what he is doing without all the divisiveness. If he could just shut up and do what he is doing...I'd support him.


Sounds like more brazen displays of your lack of awareness, degree of being uninformed & undiscerning.

1. Trump will win re-election. Witness two prophetic sources about that, one deceased:

Retired fireman Mark Taylor:

www.youtube.com...

Deceased prophetic minister Kim Clement:

www.youtube.com...

2. That you "can't understand why" shows yet again your gross lack of awareness, of information, of discernment.

You evidently have no clue why 10's of THOUSANDS line up for his rally's thousands watching outside on big screens because there's no more room inside--as they expected they would have to do.

They realize that TRUMP almost alone & under relentless lying assaults by the MSM has given us an intermission in the Marxist globalist shove of the USA & globe down the greased chute truly to hell.

You obviously have no awareness or do not care how close to the brink we were. And that if HRC had gotten in, we'd have been literally kicked over the edge.

And we are still not out of the woods. It will take Trump's 2nd 4 years to deal with hauling all the worst of the guilty traitors to justice--some to execution for outrageous treason (e.g. O'B, HRC) & some to stiff prison terms. Pelosi, Schummer, Schiff, Maxine et al have gotten rich on El Chapo's payroll in exchange for their keeping the borders open for the Jihadi & MS13 INVASIONS.

And that says nothing about the 10's of THOUSANDS of young child sex victims--that TRUMP'S TEAMS HAVE RESCUED in great contrast to all the other Presidents' efforts in such regards.

It is not just 401K's. It is HOPE, jobs, self-respect etc. that TRUMP has multiplied geometrically for blacks, Hispanics, Asians, etc.

IIRC, there's more than 150 campaign promises that TRUMP HAS KEPT or is in the process of doing all he can to keep in the face of Dim's treasonous obstructionism.



Is a smart Republican too much to ask for? Trump is no messiah. He isn't God. He isn't the chosen one.


TRUMP'S IQ IS AROUND 156. He IS a genius. It shows. He's an art at Sun Tzsu. He outfoxes even the massive obstructionism of the treasonous Dims repeatedly.

No, he is not The Messiah. However, it is a very viable & effective, honorable, amazingly humble Messiah figure born for such a time as this. He has lost more than $1billion of his own money to sacrificially serve the USA rescuing us from deadly Marxism globalism.

No, of course he's not God. He doesn't pretend to be.

Sure, he is brash, sometimes obnoxious, brazen, outrageous, hyperbolic etc. ALL AS STRATEGIES (when he's not merely having fun--though I think even his fun is often a calculated strategy).

Dr Dave Janda's (youtube) father went to meet with Trump on a building project. Dave's mother was quite hostile to the public persona of Trump. Dave's father came back and said that face to face Trump was far different than the public persona. He was kind, humble, an intense listener--drew Dave's father out on all his ideas. Clearly respected what the father had to say; was generous, caring etc.

EVERY LAST EMPLOYEE I'VE EVER READ OR HEARD OF SAYS THE SAME SORTS OF THINGS ABOUT TRUMP. The MSM has it 180 degrees opposite of the reality. All Trump's kids say the same things.


There was a young black woman squatting in Trump Tower. When staff found out about it & told Trump, he told them to leave her be. Then he had flowers sent to her. I don't recall if weekly or whatever. There are dozens of stories of such things. Verified things. Like this one: His limo once had a flat. This couple pulled up and the man helped change the tire. They exchanged info & as far as they knew, that was it. Later, they found that Trump had paid off their mortgage. I forget if it was Lou Dobbs or someone of that stature asked Trump if it was true and Trump verified it was true.



I've voted red all my life until Trump. Now I vote out of spite. That's what he has gotten me, and a lot of our country.


I think you need to put the blame where it belongs--on the lying propagandizing MSM 96% owned by the Marxist globalist oligarchy who give them their talking points 04:00 every morning. They are the ones saturating the masses with the Kool-Aid & lobotomizing with the mass brainwashing polished over decades.

Right. You've given examples of how Trump is scum. He can work every angle to win.

He's scum. He's good at it.

I don't want him to represent me.

But you want a group of people that constantly lies, misinforms and deceives you to represent you? Your willing to defend people that do that to you?

The dems whole platform of hate, especially for the last few years, has been based on one manufactured lie after another. They make Trump look like the Pope for Christ sake. Open your eyes.

Watch 5 minutes of the impeachment trial. I have more than zero proof (as you say) that he is destroying our democracy.

Getting help from foreign nations to advance a political agenda is not ok. It is destructive to our democracy. All of our rules go out the door. Many worry of socialism, well...Trump is working towards that. He is the dictator.

Our democracy is at risk. That constitution you all haven't read? It's in peril, right now. And the liar Trump is on top.

I don't place as much blame on democrats because the leader is a republican.

They (dems) are equally deplorable in this but it comes from the top.

The buck stops at Trump. He is in charge. He will never take blame and that's the problem.

He's leading. The top guy gets blame. And he NEVER accepts blame.


What is he supposed to take blame for? All the democrats and rhino's false accusations? Why should he accept blame for all the sin the democrats have done?

Get real and get free.

He's the leader of the free world. He should be able to take blame for everything.

The "rhino's false accusations?" it's rino, btw... They don't matter. He's at the top. He gets this blame. He has a lot of power. He can change it all...he doesn't.

Okay I see what's going on, you're just another low info voter swayed by hearsay and appealing to emotion.

Your post literally just showed you don't have a clue about what's going on and certainly aren't critical of the impeachment process.

Furthermore, you're assuming I haven't watched the impeachment? There has been a thread WE ALL HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING on it and the Defences rebuttal OBLITERATED any the Dems presented, it is you, who didn't watch 5 mins and soundbites don't count.

So what was the point of this thread other than 😭😭😭😭?

Because honestly, I don't care to sway your opinion, just call you out on your deluded perspective, you may continue to "Reeee", enjoy 🤭

Seems to be.

My political alliances are strongly on the Republican side. More Libertarian but...that's not a winner. The Democratic field this election year is garbage. Almost as bad as Hillary. I like Pete but he will never win. Bernie is ok but he is near to death. Amy Klobuchar is the best but she too, stands no chance.

I'm 90% certain Trump will win re-election. I can't understand why other than our much better 401k's. I feel he is great for our economy at the expense of ruining our democracy.

I can't tolerate a liar and idiot representing me. I thought Bush was bad, and I voted for him, but I had no idea how bad it could be until Trump.

Can we not have an intelligent Republican? Someone who says what he means and does what he says? Someone who loves the country more than himself?

I guess not.


You are valuing style over substance.

Trump is not an idiot. If he was he could not have possibly accomplished a quarter of what he has done. He could not possibly have 90% support of Republicans, become a billionaire, and become president with ZERO political experience. Those are incredible accomplishments. To put it simply it puts him in the top 10 most successful people currently alive at a minimum. Nobody can do that without being smart.

Obama on the other hand was all style, but did a terrible job governing. He let the economy slow mightily, he surrendered to Iran, bowed to many of our enemies, but boy could he give a good speech.

Is that really what you prefer? If it is I submit you are only paying attention to the media, and not how your life is actually being affected by the president.

As far as Trump not doing what he says - I have no idea what you are talking about. You would be hard pressed to find one thing he promised he would do on the campaign he has not at least attempted to accomplish.

As far as him not loving the country more than himself - can you please site one example of such? You do realize his net worth has been crippled - he literally has people trying to kill him, his family is being abused, and he is probably the most hated man on Earth. If he was really only doing this for himself he would have quit.
