Stop buying into it just because you want it to be real.

AND you shouldn't. That's you holding on a thread of hope. You buy into that shit just the slightest bit, and you're part of that man's proof that he can play this big game and control the media.

You're off distracted in fake scandal and fake leaks probably made by orange Donnie himself, only to miss the very realness of his totally shit presidency. He's an actor. He loves that you're paying it attention. He's calculated. He knows exactly what he's doing - just enough to not have to be president but be talked about every day.

And yes this includes you sharing that link and saying "god knows."

As long as Trump doesn't start a World War I don't really care as I don't live in the States. Its sad that a country founded on freedom of speech and freedom of expression is heading in such a downward direction and I feel for the people that will die from losing healthcare, but ultimately it won't affect me (unless the clown decides to nuke NK or stir things up even more in Syria) .
People can make their own minds up on who they believe on the Internet.

We've officially jumped the shark as a nation. It's all down hill from here

Agree, I don't know how we raise the bar (aside from asking James Cameron to do it.....)

We're going to see more and more Trump clones.

Look at what the Dems are doing with their "swearing" to try and appear like they tell it like it is....

It was a good run

No, [IMG]I don't think so[/IMG]. What's with the insisted use of italics, recently?

People need to stop assuming Trump is a total idiot who dumbed his way into office. He's feeding more of the "all press is good press" bullshit.

Remember when John Kasich was offered to be the "most powerful Vice President" in the history of this country? If there's one leak you should believe, it's that tattle right there. Trump has taken literally every step to give all of his governing powers to other people while he argues about trivial and stupid shit. Does nobody see his insisted tactic to be distractor in chief??

I part with this. I have very little opinion on Ralph Nader because I was 9 years old during the 2000 election. But everything he says here is extremely spot on.



https://theintercept.com/2017/06/25/...ty-in-history/



I anticipate no one in this forum reading it because they don't like Ralph Nader due to 2000, or dismissing it because it doesn't line up with their established views. Which is hilarious, because that's like the whole point of this.



How quickly the so-called left wing party of this country has basically become Republicans Lite.


Why should we like what you have to say when your MO for the last couple of years has spiraled into this? It's not the content no one wants to deal with, it's this ^

Dave was spot on in his response. You're no longer capable of engagement, it's pure entitlement. You've become no better than the Trumpets, you get asked to back up your statements and you ignore or attack. It's a shame, most here have a lot of common ground with you, and I for one really respected your input years ago, but your anger hasn't allowed you to truly engage for quite awhile.

Yes, he's an actor, but you are giving him too much credit. This isn't some calculated maneuvering to get some brilliant agenda through to America. He just wants adoration, he could care less if it came from white nationalists or fellow "billionaires". He just wants a legacy, and it does eat at him that he'll never be an Obama, Reagan, or even a Carter.

Dunno, it just seems oddly condescending - I'm not sure exactly what I did.

Where did I once say this was to get an agenda through?

It's like you didn't even read my post, you tell me I'm wrong, and then you restate half of it.

Calm down. Then what do you think the point of his mastery distraction in chief is about?

Looks like we're about to have a serious escalation in Syria, which means there's probably some Kushner bombshell about to drop
