    The GOP could have stopped this ages ago.

    Can't blame Trump for being Trump.

    Can blame the party that creating the opportunity for a Trump.

    It takes two to tango. Trump cemented the full batshitdongery of the base the GOP has been cultivating for years.

    It was the Faustian bargain, and now they sow the bitter harvest of cray cray.

    I think Nonna is treading carefully because she fears violence. I’m dead serious.

    You might be right.

    You really have to wonder if there is a non-violent resolution to 30% of the population walling themselves off in Trump’s alternate reality. And what a lot of those people would do if Trump was thrown out of office while kicking and screaming the whole way. Hell, I even wonder about the reaction if that happens because of an election instead impeachment.

    It is like saying that the grand imperial pubba of the kluckers isnt the problem, that all the other hooded freaks are the problem. But each one of them holds a determined value to their warped perceptions.

    He is dangerous because he is coward and he will say or do anything to keep control of his little house of cards and his minions.

    I would say I hope someone shoots this idiot but odds are that he might rise up from the dead and then he will have the whole world adoring him and never get the chance to dump his ass.
    lol

    I was at a place once a few years ago, and was sitting around listening to these other inbreds talking up trump and celebrating his victory.
    This was a place were most of the attendees supported themselves with less than desirable methods. Profits of crime.
    And I looked around and it hit me, that most of his support was from batshit crazy people who preyed on others to make themselves feel good and support their needs.
    Those are the type of people this guy attracts.

    Both side of this situation are ****ed.
    The system needs a full reboot.

    Weird post.

    1. You tried to disagree with me but then agreed with me.

    2. You ended by bothsidesing a description of one side.

    Lol I just re read my post.

    You sir are correct concerning my comment.

    So let me re comment;

    Trump is an idiot.
    Trump has the ability to make the world a very dangerous place and he is.
    If you take away the tools the nuts have to further their agenda to incite discord, then remove that tool (being trump).

    So trump is a problem and trump is dangerous.

    It's a matter of the gasoline or the match. Zeke seems to view the issue as the GOP (gasoline) instead of Trump (the match). While it's true that you won't have nearly the damage without the accelerant, without the match you do not have this fiasco.

    In a way I'm thankful for Trump. Had someone who wasn't a complete idiot, snatched complete control of the GOP, it could have been way more damaging. This is a party that has been trying to rig democracy for a couple decades now, and the Trump stench may have been what was needed to ring the alarm and wake everyone else up.

    It would be more productive for the country if the GOP themselves woke up and better candidates took over the party.

    Sure, but the GOP stopped being about governance decades ago. Their accomplishments of the last 20-30 yrs is almost entirely in foreign wars created, tax cuts for the wealthy, jacking SCOTUS, and gerrymandering. They're not interested in good policy, they're interested in keeping their hands on the wheel of power, regardless of public will.

    The USA was never the greatest democracy the world has ever seen.

    They were the last western nation to get rid of slavery(and it took a ****ing war to do it), they would have left the western world to burn in two world wars until the german and Japanese navies respectively forced their hand, they legislated racism until the 60s, they are still gridlocked when it comes to gun legislation and universal health care and their country is still largely beholden to those with money.

    Shut your face.

    Your hate of America is a little over-the-top.

    Zeke's hyperbolic comments on the GOP don't help the situation, it shuts down discussion and it's precisely why Washington doesn't work. GOP are terrorists, Dems are commie socialists... end of discussion before there even is one.
