I choose to think of the election in this way.

We can recover from an ego-maniacal third-grader that insists on personally and publicly belittling every single person that disagrees with him.

We can’t easily if ever recover from the economic disaster and the myriad insane social programs that will be put in place should one of the top 4 or 5 liberal candidates get elected.

Trump 2020

Promoting or expanding socialistic programs does not make us a socialist country. I'm much more worried that the sycophant Republicans will not lift a finger against this self-absorbed madman , and the gutless Democrats won't impeach him, and we'll end up a fascist country. He's sounding more like Mussolini everyday and with another term God only knows who he'll resemble.

You probably said the same for Bush II, and it wasn't an easy time surviving 4 more years of him. You can blame hard times on Democrats, but if Bush could have vetoed certain bills, he should have done it.
Bush II was fine. Not my favorite President, and did not care for his big spending policies, but he was a decent guy and a decent President.

I was hopeful for Bush getting re-elected, simply because Kerry was so horrible.... but that would not have been the end of our cultural civilization as it would be today if Trump does not win.

Culturally, things have not been this bad in the US since Kennedy and Johnson were oppressing the Blacks; luckily we made it through that, but back then we did not have the ignorance of the social media distorting truth, like we do today.

Lord help this country if he is. He so obviously strives to follow the truth in the Sermon on the Mount.
Do tell... what is so horrible that Trump has done? How has his policies harmed you? How have his policies harmed anybody?

Why do you think America would be in trouble if Trump were re-elected? What policy? What dire outcome?

(hint - there aren't any)

what in the heck? And why exactly would you make that false allegation? Every step towards socialism brings one closer to socialism - why in the heck would anybody ever take any steps in that direction?

We are very, very close to total government control of healthcare - and that is exactly what the Democratic candidates want. That would be socialism. That would, in fact, make us a socialist country.

why interpret anything... just RECITE the words, I'll do my own interpretation, thank you.

Frankly, I don't care if Trump is meek, and I don't care if he doesn't inherit the Earth, and Trump is not my spiritual leader.

You can't be serious. Look at the policy he has enacted and the Judges he has put in place. They are all Constitutional Originalist who will rule for a smaller more Constitutional government. His policy has been mostly rolling back government over reach. You really need to turn off the news and pay attention to whats actually going on.

Besides Mussolini was a socialist. All fascist are. They want absolute control of production and everything else that entails. Socialism and our constitution can not exist in the same country. They are opposing ideals.

actually, no, it is not like saying that.

If healthcare is socialized, that is 1/3rd of our economy that would be socialist - now you're going to start arguing "degrees of socialism?"

"well.... we're not full socialists".... is that where you're going with this? We're just "part socialist"?

All hail Trump! The self-adorned chosen one. Knows more than all the generals combined. Stable genius. The least racist person he knows. The most successful Pied Piper in our country's history. MAGA

Now that you've deemed yourself my mind-reader, you finish off the conversation Liberty. I'm through.

When did the left lose their sense of humor and ability to discern. Which by the way is pretty hilarious to watch.

Look at what the man has actually done policy wise. Makes it even funnier, half of the stuff are things the democrats have been promising to do for years. Now they are all bad ideas cause Trump. You guys are killing me I've been laughing my butt off for almost three years watching it. Keep up the good work. :lol::lol::lol:

not "whatever"

show it. Prove it or shut it. Hate speech (by you) will not go unchallenged.
Didn't you know that just because a Trump deranged individual calls the President a racist, white-supremacist, or literally Hitler we are just supposed to accept it at face value as the truth?

When are Republicans going to abolish ObamaCare now? They wasted 2 years and couldn't do it. I guess they're going to wait for their judges to throw out ALL of it. That would include the extra Medicaid. It will be interesting to see how awful that turns out. It surely won't be a laughing matter. Most of the states accepted more Medicaid.

You probably think that the Republican led Congress and Sen. McCain is where hurt can be found by their failure to abolish ObamaCare.
