    Things I Don't Understand

    While I agree with some Republican ideas, I don't get the current popularity of Donald Trump.
    The idea of him as President makes me

    Is it that many people actually believe in his extreme ideas?

    Are the Republicans so bereft of plausible candidates that he represents a reasonable alternative?

    Are people so sick of politics as usual they'd be willing to have him President just because he's different than the pack?

    Likewise. When I read the reports of his latest utterances and see the pictures with that rug on his head, all I can do is giggle. He's ridiculous.
    Surely, the Americans wouldn't elect him, would they?
    Would they?

    There's no a chance in hell of this guy being President.
    Some people are currently being entertained by the stupid shit he's saying/doing and so his poll numbers are high.
    He's been pandering to the lower economic base of the GOP and sooner or later they'll get wise to the fact that a Billionaire doesn't care about them.

    P.S. I'm surprised he hasn't had a Confederate flag suit made yet.

    Nah, this is just people slowing down to look at the car wreck on the side of the road.

    some fun

    I think you're right Frosty it's just a blip. Happened before.

    But what if...

    ...he gets frickin' nominated by some freak chance and Billary jumps off a balcony when she hears about it?

    ...all the other Rep. candidates are on the same plane and it pulls an MH-370? ...then Hillary has some skeleton clank out of the closet during the general election?

    ...all the poor people suddenly decide Trump is the way to go? Isn't he rich enough to give them like $20 each?.........hell I could use 20 bucks.......


    Trump For President!

    1. You know as well as I do that barring anything tragic happening, it'll be Jeb vs Hillary.

    2. Dozens of Republicans suddenly go poof and we'd only lose Hillary...? Man, that is tempting.

    3. For all his blustering about 10 billion, experts have said the real number is probably closer to 2 to 3 billion
    and considering there are maybe 300 million people here, everybody would probably only get 6-9 bucks minus what he spends on the campaign, which is probably everything to begin with.
    He has zero interest in really being the President and this is just an ego thing like it has been every other time he's run.

    It's been about 15 years since they stole an election so there is that, but they don't have a shot in hell of actually winning this thing.
    They'll take the states they always take and that will be about it.
    Until they come to the conclusion that the future of their party isn't white rich people looking out for other rich white people anymore,
    they aren't going to win any more of the national elections, so that's why they pull shit like the voter ID laws.

    "Oh, no...three dead people voted in the last election, we need to make sure everyone has ID."
    "But won't that discriminate against the poorer and fringe people (who tend to vote liberal) who still have the right to vote..?"
    "Yeah, we are sorry about that but not really."
