I'd like to see Trump competing against Putin using judo. Putin would lay Trump on his ass like he will America if Trump gets elected.

The only reason I would like to see a presidential race between HRC and Trump is to see whether the Conservatives have the audacity to attack Clinton on her honesty (which does seem to have been the strategy for while now) while their own candidate couldn't even find the words 'honesty' and 'facts' on an online dictionary.

See, in most of the cases I agree with you. The comparisons of Bush from the left or Obama from the right to Hitler were just plain silly.

But Trump's game plan is absolutely taking a page from early 30s Germany.

Now do I think Trump will start rounding up the Muslims and gays and throw them into camps? Of course not... but the rhetoric is frightening none the less.

Thank you. Seems anything even vaguely authoritarian has to draw immediate comparisons to Hitler - what a goddamn cliche.

Let's all pretend like Trump had no idea that having all of his supporters raise their arms in pledge to him would look eerily similar to a nazi salute.

Of course he knew what he was doing. His whole game is media manipulation. That's why he's spent next to nothing on the first third of the states. Media outlets comped him the advertising money.

If you are bothered by people's comparisons between Trump and Adolf Hitler, you're missing the fact that he's doing it on purpose. He's been training for years with this. It's by no means a coincidence.

I don't think you can necessarily draw a straight line from Trump to Hitler by any means. I think a fairer comparison is to say that this election is similar to the 1933 campaign the Nazis won. There are a lot more similarities than "Trump is fascist" (he's not). This is a pretty good analysis:

Why we have to talk about Hitler when we discuss Trump and Sanders: Don Pittis - Business - CBC News

What bothers me is the insinuation that the present-day US is comparable to Weimar Germany in any meaningful way and consequently that Hitler-esque tactics, whatever that means, would have any efficacy here. We're not coming off a humiliating, debilitating defeat in a world war. We don't have hyperinflation or massive unemployment. We haven't experienced failed coups and we don't have a government structure that allows for something like the Enabling Act. Those kinds of comparisons read like the worst kind of History Channel bullshit.

Is Ted Cruz secretly the frontman of Christian metal band Stryper?

Story is that Trump bribed Carson for his endorsement by making him believe he had a shot at VP.
