    Default Donald Trump

    I am seriously surprised there hasn't been a Donald Trump thread by now.
    As much as i try and keep away from political matters, this one is worth watching at so many levels....
    Humour is one level,
    Fear is another.....

    The Don, President Trump, whatever it is, its like watching Hillsong preach the way of religion.

    I'm sure most well balanced Americans are shaking their heads in disbelief, but there is a swell of believers
    I'm surprised he has lasted this long.
    Just goes to show hey



    America, you need to stop this nonsense now, it was funny for a while, we all had a good laugh, but now its just scary!

    It would be like Andrew Bolt running for Prime Minister here.

    Imagine if we had a right-wing, smug, self-made billionaire as leader of our country. ..oh wait, err..

    Personally I think he's the best chance the Democrats have for staying in power.

    Yay, finally a Trump thread
    I was too scared to start one here.
    Now you should all be scared of the BS that I can post here

    50% of the US americans will start a revolution if he is booted out/looses.
    50% of the US Americans will start a revolution if he becomes president.

    I wonder what will happen?

    The world will be a much more dangerous place if Trump is elected President - I would hope most Americans have more sense than that.

    Can you imagine Kim Jong Un and Trump threatening each other.

    Everyone seems to hate Abbott, but he is nothing like Trump. Abbott behaves and sounds and acts EXACTLY like Rudd in fact, so to put them on the same level is as absurd as putting Rudd there. Trump is the uber traditional message that disaffected republican voters have to their own establishment, which the establishment clearly and publicly hates. They will get the message, at least for a while. They have two choices. Nominate him, or as IS the case, use party rules not to. These rules exist, but the risks are high. It's THAT that could spark trouble, but only among republicans.

    Trump will get thrashed in a presidential election.

    Nothing at all. North Korea would end up a sea of molten glass, which would later become a huge mineral mine once the radiation settles.....

    I dont know, the comical side of me wants him to be elected, just what the average American IQ needs to run the show there.

    I think one valid reason no one has started a Thread on TRUMP is out of sheer bewilderment at what he says during his Campaign speeches and are waiting to hear what he will say next.
    You forgot that 50% wont vote and the other 50% will shoot those who do turn up to Vote.
    On top of that it seems no one actually votes for the President but they are 'selected' by the Electoral College as was one of the Bush's a few years back.

    From what I have seen and heard of Trump, he has literally thrown out the Constitution all Yanks rave about with his encouragement to his supporters to assault any opposition, refuse to accept and deport certain groups as he sees fit and treading on every International Toe he can in his 'proclamations'.

    Oh, and I forgot, theres still another 25% Undecided along with the 25% who dont know.

    There's a meme doing the rounds that says (on the subject of Trump) something like: "America is currently taking a nation-wide intelligence test... and failing".

    Yeah mate, me too I guess. But its not going to happen. And if it did, I STILL wouldn't worry because its out of my control so there would be no point.

    I'm retired and fairly settled and the only thing I have any concerns about are my kids and grandkids and the unsustainable society we are leaving them. If it all blows up then that takes care of that.

    Funny you say that, i feel the same way.
    I want to see him elected, then see how bad he can hang himself with that much rope.
    Only, its not a TV Comedy Series, it is reality..... So it wont go away with a flick of channel.

    I hope Trump gets elected, Clinton, Bush & Obama have united the Muslim world (when they could not even unite themselves) against the yanks because of the yank military action.

    Hillary Clinton would just be a continuation.

    Trump was speaking out against these trade agreements that have screwed the yanks since the early 1990s, maybe even the late 1980s.

    That was what I meant with booting him out. While I don't understand exactly the process, it seems he has little support from delegates in the Republican party despite a strong support from potential voters and this is where the constitution comes in.
    Some thing breaks if the majority wants but doesn't get.

    I hope cmangle can join us here.

    And its based on that premise he wont get 'Selected' by the Electoral College irrespective of the assumed popular vote that could really stir the pot with all Hell breaking loose according to some of the comments being made.

    You Oz boys have a WAY different opinion on guns than Americans do, just as you Oz boys have a WAY different opinion on Trump than MOST Americans do.

    He's gonna be president despite what you all think from 10,000 miles away!

    I just hope he doesn't put an import tax on Vegemite! 8^(

    So, what is your opinion of him cmangle?

    I think all us Aussie can secretly agree with some of his ideas, its just things you wouldn't say in public.
    Or is that Exactly why the men and women of the USA love him!
