The guy is an entertainer. He has absolutely no presidential characteristics. I don't really don't understand the appeal he has. Okay, we can discuss trade and outsourcing, but this can be accomplished without electing a guy who has no idea of what he's talking. He's wrong on so many fronts. If there's anyway he's elected, the American project would be in danger and our reputation will be compromised.

Mostly agree. I would never vote for him.

Should he win (which he won't), Congress- even a GOP dominated Congress- will stop him.


So there it is. A guy who tilts right but despises Trump. There are many of us.

Glad to hear. Why is the sane right not being heard? Trump supporters are making the most noise online and on cable news.

"why would you want a buffoon to be president?"

Seems to be the trend these last few elections, why stop now, there's still some parts of the American way of life that haven't been destroyed !

Azz clowns like fellow azz clowns. I guess they feel they too should get a chance to have one of their own in the White House.

So, OP, would you rather have a polished empty suit that is beholden to his/her mega-rich donors and always puts those donors ahead of his/her constituents?

There are too many people in this country who feel as you do for him to get elected. Less than half of Republicans want him and not many others. That's not a winning formula.

Here's the apolitical card. SMH


Every democracy has lobbyists. They play a vital role.

You're being duped. Trump knows what you and your fellow supporters want to hear. He doesn't care about the working class. This is the same guy who said Americans are overpaid and has his brand manufactured in China. Don't forget that he's a billionaire after all. Don't be so naive.

Actually we can't.

When both so-called parties, actually their corporate paymasters, agree on all those policies, the only way those who are hurt by them can be heard is to shout.

Every single human utterance has a meaning, including shouting, cajoling, ridiculing, threatening, entertaining, shaming, etc.

Shouting works to some extent or another.

Bernie should try it, I think he would get more traction. And, yes, it would be quite entertaining too!

I noticed lately, after much shouting and threatening by certain opposition parties who have started to make electoral gains in Europe, that the EU is starting to get serious about shoring up its borders, making a deal with Turkey.

Shouting works. It is a part of human anatomy and expression. It is a human tool and humans use it. Know that, because knowledge is key.


Shouting works.

Try it some time.

Look, personally I would do fine under the status quo - breakneck free trade, outsourcing, illegal immigration and poverty wages - in other words, I would do fine under a Hillary presidency, I have no problem.

But there are a lot of people hurting under those policies, so somebody has to shout.

Bernie should try it too, maybe even bang a shoe against a microphone, I think he would get more traction. And, yes, it would be quite entertaining!

So was Ronald Reagan. Starred in many moves.

People made the same sort of argument against him, as you make now.

They were all proved wrong.
