    ^ full respect for Cohen's talents, none for his misguided faith in democracy.

    You're probably still thinking he talked about his dick out of nowhere despite me pointing out to you that Marco taunted him first =_=

    You should know by now that not everything the media says about Trump is accurate, but you still seem to hate him with a passion.
    And for the record, I may not agree with Bernie's plans, but I defend Bernie when the media is biased towards him.

    Anyway, I recommend that you avoid ending up like one of these people....

    And it dosent matter anyway. Hes a passing phase. He will just be one of the crazy go to past news guys that stations have on once in a while to scream that hes the rightful president and how things would be different. Even when his supporters dont care about him anymore. Like a more orange evil sarah palin. Dont put that much effort into this. Relax, your darth vader dreams are just dreams.

    "Dice are rolling, the knives are out. Would be Presidents are all about"

    I wonder if USA will wake up to Hillary.

    One option now is that the Republicans steal the nomination from Trump and run someone (Romney most likely), Trump spits the dummy and runs independently and beats Clinton. Alternatively he splits the Republican vote and Clinton wins.

    Interesting times.

    He's not a passing phase, he's a symptom of what is wrong with the political machine, not just in the US but in most Western nations. Voters are disillusioned with the career politicians and State bureaucrats that run our countries, enhancing their own power and those of their favoured friends at the expense of the unfavoured whether that's expressed as a rise in nationalism (Trump) or socialism (Sanders). The established power base (Romney, Clinton etc) are threatened and will do whatever they can to maintain their grip on the minds of their citizens - aided and abetted by journalists, entertainers/business leaders/academics and through the use of their legislated authority.

    Not a passing phase at all ego, it's a movement, and if it heralds the destruction of the State, then it is both overdue and dauntingly expected (and welcome long term). Unfortunately before that happens no matter who wins we'll see a rise in totalitarianism and xenophobic economic policies that will crush living standards.

    Of course you would frame it like that. :/

    The enemy kills innocents all the time and do not care about their own life or the law. Here's a witness account of the recent terror attack in ivory coast:
    You have to instil fear into the enemy in practically any violent fight, whether it's a fist fight or war.
    If the only way in this case is to threaten their families then it has to be done unless you are prepared to continue losing your own families.

    Whether you actually carry out the threat is another matter, but you can't very well reveal your bluff to the world by explaining your plan on TV.
    That would diminish the effectiveness of the strategy.

    Trump's idea reflects a strategy that I had thought up many many years ago - it was refreshing to see a potential politician getting it.

    Your pacifistic attitude doesn't work when confronted with enemies that do not give any value to your life.
    ISIS and other bastards like them don't give a turtle about your peace loving ideology.

    An actual proper interview with Trump.

    Sounding sensible and not on the Reality Primary TV show.

    so we are now split into authoritarians and submissives? did it ever occur to the political scientists (what a joke of a profession) that maybe just maybe intelligence plays a part?I mean how could we possibly make up our own minds?

    All this is is a majority population group speaking out through Trump! everyone is so used to accepting only whats best for minorities because they are scared of saying how they really feel! People through Trump are just repeating their conversations and concerns just as they would out of public "nanny" earshot just as they do at at home or in the work place, I mean who in America doesnt want America great again?

    Remember the days not so long ago when American tourists around the world were the most annoying and loud? where are they now? they cant afford to travel overseas anymore to be so annoying! Now its the Aussies and Brits being the obnoxious and Chinese being the most annoying!

    People underestimate the true thoughts of the average north American majority white black yellow and brown.

    I dont think its any of that. Its a movement like "occupy wallstreet". This is just a huge tiny fingers, fat, orange, nothing. Nothing will change. The twitter generarion only cares about exactly now. Once its over....."eh" i feel the majority of people who vote for him just simply see him as different or memorable. Hes ALOT more witty. He gets the crowd going, hes sarcastic, uses twitter and makes fun of people. People are idiots...its just a clown with a mic, standing among nerds. so i guess hes more liked and relatable. Drumpf is not the change

    So is the author accusing Trump of laying bare the conservative political tradition in the US of white affluent superiority or is he accusing Trump of representing the conservative political tradition in the US of white affluent superiority?

    I couldn't make sense of the point of this article, all I got was that Trump is a bullshitter, his followers have lizard brains and that conservatives believe that there are those who are fit to rule and those who are fit to obey. Pretty much describes the leaders and followers of the left in my opinion - or am I just a bloddy idiot (sic)?

    You don't have to dig too far into that site to realise it has an obvious left-wing agenda. Plenty of articles about politics but I don't think I could find a single negative comment about Bernie Sanders. Most of it was anti-republican.

    Finding truly independent and quality journalism is a tough task these days. :mad:

    One of the best things about Trump is, that unlike 99% of politicians, he's not afraid to say the wrong thing or offend someone.

    There's nothing more offensive than listening to a politician choosing his words in an attempt to not offend.

    Actually that just makes him a douche.
    What trump does on the daily is say something very offensive and then about a hour later back track and try to say he never said that at all or change everything he just said. Hes the worst of both worlds.

    So hes the douche u should love to hate. His supporters are so very easily played and they never notice a thing. Even if its as obvious at this like it always is :rolleyes:.. when did he do this? Yesterday? I dono, pick any day.
