I don't think he'll win again.  I'm starting to wonder if he will actually be impeached.

Too Soon?

If only it was a group photo.

I don't think he'll win again.  I'm starting to wonder if he will actually be impeached.

Given who the Dems have, outside of the economy/stock market tanking, I don't see how Trump could lose,
he continues to get new donors each month, and his rallies are continuing to be packed, with people waiting outside.  The polls are only showing a change in people supporting the Impeachment BS due to the only getting the Dems version of what is going on in the secret hearings, hearings in which the Reps aren't even allowed to attend.

If he is Impeached by the House, it wont be for what they have now, a President can't obstruct any investigation conducted by any Executive branch agency due to those agencies being just an extension of the President himself, Mueller's authority came from the DOJ, not Congress, making Mueller authority subservient to Trump.  This Ukraine BS is just that BS, as head of the Executive branch, the President is the Chief law enforcement officer of the nation, and can launch an investigation into an American citizen for alleged criminal conduct, and if needed too, coerce other world leaders to help out in that criminal investigations. The only reason why they have gone full retard on the Ukrainian phone call, is because they either know or are afraid of what the IG report is going to state about the entire FBI/DOJ wire tapping Trumps campaign through FISA warrants, and who Durham may be bringing charges against, and hope they can make it seen like the IG and Durham are reacting to the Impeachment Inquiry to save Trump.

LOL!!

Trump will win by the biggest margin of victory in the history of US Presidential campaigns!

He will NOT be impeached, not matter how the Dems spin it.

Trump will go down in the history books as the greatest President in American history.

Obama will go down as the worst ever.

My greatest fear for President Trump’s survival during his Presidency is assassination. He and his family are in extreme danger from radical sickos, and there are plenty of them out there.

God put him there for a good reason, God will protect him.

I don't care for Democrat vs Republican.  When I vote i want to vote for the person who does what they say they will..if I like it.

I have a quote, it's from the movie Hunt for Red October.

"I'm a politician, which means I'm a cheat and a liar.  When I'm not kissing babies, I'm stealing their lollipops."

Problem is, it is no longer Democrat vs Republican, it is Socialists vs non-Socialists, and any vote cast for a candidate with a "D" next to their name is casting a vote for Socialism, as there are no longer enough moderates left in the party to save it.  This is what moderate Dems failed to realize in '18 when they voted for candidates who claimed they were moderates, or maybe even are, all their voting for them did, was hand the House over  to quasi-socialists like Pelosi and those to her political Left.

Not that any other candidate was worth their weight in burned gear oil, Trump actually LOST the election, by about 3 million votes. America actually put Clinton in office, the electoral college negated the popular vote. Just one more piece of evidence that democracy in this country is dying, too many loopholes. Doesn't help that people are ignorant, prejudiced, selfish boors that don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. The left will take this country into the socialist realm for sure since they're a mass of brainless sheep. The right is getting to a point where they want to start a new Nazi style regime. The few left in the middle that actually have some common sense and want our country  to be a place we can be proud of are too few to get anything accomplished. We are weakened by our division, ripe for the picking. Won't be long 'til this country becomes several smaller countries at war with each other.


Just the way I see things going. So many examples throughout history to examine. Still, we don't learn.
Sure it'll fit........ Just needs a little brute finesse.

Hey sirdeuce….

Your synopsis and prediction is interesting.  It could become a shocking reality here in America.  And… sadly the movement toward chaos and the systematic dismantling our US Constitution is happening.  Yes, there are too many people who have their heads planted into their anal cavity – they don’t know, don’t care, don’t see, don’t hear, and have zero interest in searching for the truth and the facts. The decades of indoctrination of our children will come back to bite us. 70% of millennials pathetically believe socialism is good thing!  The media and huge corporate monopolizing entities are corrupting our lives and desolving our civil liberties.

Psychopathic greed for power and money are evils that have been carefully hidden from the public.  Exposure of the swamp creatures has them in a panic.  They will do anything to subvert the truth and deny their sick agenda and perverted ideology!

So what do we, “The few left in the middle that actually have some common sense and want our country to be a place we can be proud of are too few to get anything accomplished” do about it?

I offer a suggestion to anyone out there who DOES have an interest in learning about the truth and facts about the left and democrats and what they are doing to destroy our constitutional republic…..

If you have not read this book, be prepared to experience a range of emotions about your life and our United States of America.

I love our President. I spent 20 years of my life in the Navy Seabees doing construction work world wide. Including one year :burnout: in Antarctica. We still have the best country in the world. Until Obama was President I thought Carter was by far the worst we had seen.
Most Americans have no clue as to just how much 8 years of Obama in office affected our country's ability to protect our country and our assets. He systematically tried his best to dismantle our Military and put our country back to pre WW2 manning levels. And it's not just personnel at lower levels, we bad ships and planes and guns. But no repair parts, no fuel and no ammo. Trump is doing his very best to overcome all of these issues and has made some very significant progress. Other world leaders laughed at Obama and US for electing such a puke of :pokinit:. Democrats have drank the Socalist koolaide and they are sure they know what's best for us.
As far as our Military, Obama did more than just short us in this above items. Obama tried his very best to change the whole Military Culture to go along with the Democrats policy of Gay Rights. He pushed that down there throats too. Here is an example. I had a 14 year Army Special Ops man explained to me why he was getting out. He said you retired in 92 so you would not have a clue about this. They while on a special mission had to crap in a bag and take it with them. They could leave nothing behind showing they were ever there. Now to take a dump into a bag requires 2 people. He did not want to have to even imagine that his bag holder might be checking his junk out. Gross but true. The whole Military Culture was changed. During a friendly game of touch football while trying to unwind my Foster son called a buddy a f***t teasing him and everyone knew that person was not. Wrong person overheard he had to go before the Commaning Officer who was a Lesbian and was demoted one pay grade. This kind of attitude has burnt the troops out. We were all ok with the don't ask, don't tell attitude in the past. But this crap under Obama was a terrible thing to do to our fighting men and women.  Off my soap box.

Hmmm. Most of the time it's a small percentage of the populace that causes the problem, Islam, Germany (Nazi movement), etc. . Only @18% of the Muslim community are in the 'kill the infidel' category, the rest are peaceful, good people. Peaceful good people that won't raise a finger in their own defense against what gives them a bad reputation. That, in effect, makes them just as bad. Throughout history the same story keeps repeating itself. Most of the time the larger part of the population is just to afraid to do anything, like Germany.


So what do we do? Civil war has been the typical answer. Can't do that in our situation, it'll only separate the people farther. We'll just be another middle east situation with people separated by difference of opinion. That would be even worse that being separated by fundamental religious beliefs. Imagine if this country was separated by just religious beliefs. The "Christian" religion is separated in something like 1700 different branches. All are fundamentally the same, same book, same deity, same icon, different interpretation and opinion. Imagine if they decided to fight over that.
What to do? In this case we have to let thigs get worse before we can even think about fixing them. Total meltdown, in my eyes, will be the only way to shed light on what's going on. Too bad that'll take several generations, but that's all a part of growing up.

A Civil War would kill our country. Our enemies such as Russia and China would gladly lend a helping hand in that fiasco and then systematically Rob our country.
The only way forward that I see is to do it in the elections. Keep Trump in. He doing a great job. If his hands were not tied by the House Democrats and a few pissed off and disgruntled Republicans he could achieve even more. Our downfall will be a Democrat led Socalist pure and simple. Can you imagine any lawmaker pushing a health care bill saying you have to vote it in to see what's inside? I guess they think we are all idiots. And will mindlessly follow them. Not me or anyone I know. A large percentage of blacks used to always vote Democrat. Not anymore.

Sorry, elections aren't going to help. No matter who, or what, we put into effect will be fought tooth and nail by those that didn't want it. You may think that Trump is doing a great job but his administration has this country more polarized than ever. Actually need to get rid of the political parties, need a neutral administration that thinks about what is best, not just best for their party.
Real problem is the people in this country. The majority doesn't pay attention to what's going on. They don't actually care. More interest in whether we call a physical and genetic gender by their chosen gender. There's more effort put into controlling how people interact with other people than there is in establishing good health care or education.
No, elections won't do it. Civil war won't do it. It just has to take the path it's on, straight to rock bottom. Sad thing is everybody has to take that trip.

If civil war were to break out I wonder how many "anti gun" nuts would arm themselves.

The Bad news is that some of the Far Left groups are all ready arming themselves. ANTIFI or whatever they want to call themselves is one such group. They remind me of Hitler's Brown shorted thugs. Did you ever wonder how in the world these Paid Protesters get from one rally to the next? What I have read so far is that it paid for by Goerge Soros groups. They are managing these anti Trump ant American rallies. Old Mr Soros is a wanted man in many countries but our country is giving him a safe haven. He should have been extradited years ago. If some I stinks follow the money. Like Carbon Tax. Another Socalist agenda to rip us off right along with Global Warming. What a hoax. And many people fall for it thats sad.

I always hear people talking about the far left, never the far right. Gotta be careful there, the spectrum isn't as wide as you may think. These idiots are tipping the scale with their beliefs. If they falter and it goes the other way it'll snap farther in the other direction. Think Nazi Germany. Look both ways when crossing the street or you'll get flattened by that bus you didn't see. And all those leftists are denying the right and it's going to get them bit in the ass.
Sad thing I came across recently is the demonization of history. Some people don't want the negative aspects of our history to be taught in our schools. It's too upsetting! These people don't see how it teaches the growth our species has achieved. Even when I was in school the history of humanity was limited to 'recent' history, and mostly to prejudice me to other peoples while exalting the American history.

I just erased several examples of history people don't have the whole story on. Turned into a huge rant.
A hundred years from now all this will be hidden in the annals of history as another embarrassing era we don't want people to know about.
All you leftists hear that? You'll be a black spot on our history! California will be used as an example of what not to do.

The far Left has left the planet or soon will. Sure there is a far right movement also, but not nearly as dangerous as the Far Left. The Left want total 100% gun confiscation and point out how it's worked so well in England and Australia. Any well read person knows the facts show the exact opposite has happened. It's a mess. Before confiscation normal people who owned guns could and did defend themselves. Not so now. And the Real Truth is if you live in out in the country you can still own guns. Just limited. But big cities no guns.

Yeah, History, news and things like that are filtered to make certain actions look better than they are. But, taking the guns in those other countries works so much better than it would ever work here, different mentalities and temperaments. Here, before they actually disarm the people a civil war would very well break out. What isn't realized about that is there would be so many, uh, "innocent" people slaughtered. Basically those that wanted the guns gone in the first place. Y'know, the solipsistic dolts that want you to conform to their beliefs. The ratio of law abiding, good people that like guns to the criminal is very high. For that (?) 1 in a thousand gun owner that actually uses their gun in a crime is, in their minds, substantial reasoning to screw everybody. Next, knives, then cars because you can do stupid :pokinit: in a car that puts lives at risk. Hell, the thought police are already activated, I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't get a visit for some of the things I've already said.  It just wouldn't end. Hey, get rid of all evil and then go after the lesser good until nothing is left. An extinction event sure looks good from this angle. Apophis will be here in a little over 9 years.

I would like to have a utopian way of life. No money, no religion, no politics, no cops, no militia, but the way things are I don't even know my neighbors names, I can't walk to the store for fear of being attacked by either the criminals or the cops. Yeah the cops, can't water the front yard garden without being harassed for 20 minutes because I look 'suspicious' watering the guava plant in the front of the house. Just one incident, I have many.

Far right can be just as dangerous as the left. If it gets far enough that way there will be no legislation to take your guns, they'll just take them, along with whatever they need to fund their movement. Actually they're already doing it through a little thing called 'civil forfeiture'. Millions in property and monies have been confiscated(read stolen) under the guise of the 'law'. And You are stuck in the middle, watching your front while being snuck up on from the back. Sad thing is the entities that are suppose to have your back are twisting the knife while they smile in your face.

Just the way I see things going. So many examples throughout history to examine. Still, we don't learn.
A couple of points of contention here, the first of which it is impossible to claim that Hillary won the national vote, when each year there are millions of ballots cast by dead, illegal, and double voters, most of whom always seem to vote D.  Nearly every county in the nation has more registered voters in the county than adults capable of voting, some counties have 165% voter registration, which makes it easy for ballot box stuffing, something that clearly took place in 2012 and again in 2016, with the counties that reported voter turnouts that were higher than the total number of adults in the county.  CA alone could have been responsible for 1-2 million fraudulent ballots, In '08 and again in '12, there was about 1 million ballots in CA that only had a single vote cast for Obama on it, not one for Senator, nor any other office or ballot measure, and in 2016, there was over a million more ballots cast in total for President and for the 3 anti-gun laws Propositions on the ballot, than for any other state wide office race or ballot measure, and legalizing recreational weed was on the ballot that year.  The Dems only used national vote as a way to delegitimize Trump's win, as well as it helped fuel the belief that the Russians actually changed the outcome of the election.

Another point is that we are not a Democracy, but a Constitutional Republic, that utilizes a representative form of government.  By design, the Electoral College worked just as it was intended to do in 2016, i.e., the States decided who was POTUS, and not the masses.  With our form of representational government, the House was to represent the masses, the Senate was to represent the States, and between the two houses of Congress, they would nominate and elect the President to represent the nation.  The only direct vote the masses were to have was for their House of Rep member, not their Senator, and definitely not POTUS, which is why the Electoral College  voters are Constitutionally allows to vote for who they want to, not how their constituents voted.  The Founders feared the tyranny of the majority just as much as they feared tyranny of the government, and established as many checks and balances as possible to protect against both, the EC was a check one of the check and balance of the tyranny of the masses, it was designed to balance the interests of the masses with the interests of the States, and check the majority's rule over the minority.

Another minor point is that Hitler was not a right winger, he was a Marxist just like Stalin, the difference between the two is that Stalin believed the Socialist State would be achieved overtime from the people up through Communism, and Hitler believed the Socialist State could be achieved quickly through from the top down through Eugenics, which in Europe, as it was in the U.S., was predominantly a belief of the Left at the time.  It wasn't until after WWII, that the Left in needing to shed the stink of horrors that their ideology brought upon the world through Hitler, that Hitler was rebranded as right wing conservative, just as they did to shed the stink of the KKK.

Youre right, this country needs a serious douching.
Exactly, and as Thomas Jefferson once wrote in a letter to William Stephens Smith, "the tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. it is it’s natural manure."  It has been almost 75yrs since Americans shed any real blood for liberty, at least in way that effected the masses, and unfortunately due to our position of power in the world, the bloodshed necessary to refresh the tree of liberty has to be that of Americans alone.

A Civil War would kill our country. Our enemies such as Russia and China would gladly lend a helping hand in that fiasco and then systematically Rob our country.
The only way forward that I see is to do it in the elections. Keep Trump in. He doing a great job. If his hands were not tied by the House Democrats and a few pissed off and disgruntled Republicans he could achieve even more. Our downfall will be a Democrat led Socalist pure and simple. Can you imagine any lawmaker pushing a health care bill saying you have to vote it in to see what's inside? I guess they think we are all idiots. And will mindlessly follow them. Not me or anyone I know. A large percentage of blacks used to always vote Democrat. Not anymore.

Unfortunately, another civil war, is likely the only way to save the nation our Founders created, as nowhere in the world have Socialists and non-Socialists coexisted peacefully when Socialist are the ones in control.  Socialist want power, and once they achieve it, they seek to insure they never lose it, which is exactly what they have done in CA, where most voters in the state only have a two Dems to choose from for their State and Federal representatives.

For me, with politics, life and friends is that you can agree with what one person has to say on a certain topic and not on another.  When it comes to voting for a person, you are in effect voting for their entire platform of policies.  I don't like that.

If there is ever a time in American history, now is the time to be discussing our future as a US citizen.

“One of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors.”
    ~ Plato


If you are stupid enough not to vote, you will still be stupid!


“If you put the federal government in charge of the Sahara Desert, in 5 years there'd be a shortage of sand.”
   ~ Milton Friedman


Almost everything the government touches turns into FUBAR!


“In this present crisis, government is not the solution to our problem; government is the problem.”
    ~ Ronald Reagan


There IS a crisis in America… it’s cleaning the swamp.


“Politics is not a game. It is an earnest business.” ~ Winston Churchill

That is why Trump, the businessman, has succeeded where past Presidents have failed.


“Politics have no relation to morals.” ~ Niccolo Machiavelli

Our government has proven itself to be the one of the most immoral and corrupt on the planet.

Politicians are like spouses/life partners, you put up with their bad qualities as long as their good ones are worth it.

This one from Machiavelli rings very true with Trump's Presidency,
"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."

Always liked this one as well,
"When you disarm the people, you commence to offend them and show that you distrust them either through cowardice or lack of confidence, and both of these opinions generate hatred."

Another issue with a national vote determining the POTUS, is social media, and how big Tech directly impacts an election.  In 2015 from a study conducted Dr, Robert Epstien Phd, he concluded that due to the political bias of programmers, or their bosses, search engines can effect how undecided voters vote by 20%, and up to 80% for some demographics.
https://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/08/how-google-could-rig-the-2016-election-121548

During a real time study conducted during the 2016 and 2018 elections, he believes that Google alone shifted 2.6 million votes to Hillary, and in 2018 over 78 million votes to Democrat candidates nation wide.

There’s lot of data to show that social media and contact time with Google can and does distort and influence public perspectives – negatively and positively.

However, I don’t believe Google or any other big data monopoly can prove that they can influence that many people and then prove why 78 million people voted for a particular candidate.

Regarding Robert Epstein’s research – he is a left wing pundit and contributor to the Puffington Hoax.  As a psychologist following the behavioral ideology founded on B.F. Skinner’s perverted and sadistic experiments on animals, Pavlov included, I put him in the same category as other infamous phoney lauded PhDs like Jonathan Gruber with insidious teachings of anti-everything we stand for as Americans.

Now, Dr. Epstein, as a previous Hilary supporter, and voted for her in the 2016 Presidential Election, he denounces his support for the Democratic Party, I might change my mind about him.

Anyone who supports or believes that the Democratic Party is doing good for the citizens of the USA is either ignorant and blind to the facts and truth, or just like the evil power-hungry tyrannical sickos like George Soros.

Is the Democratic Party promoting Socialism?  Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong, Kim Jong-un, Kim Jong-il killed 100 MILLION people in the name of socialism!

Of course that’s just my radical right wing Constitutional 1st Amendment opinion.  :thumbs:
