Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!" The statement played off Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again," fueling speculation that he is planning a political comeback.

"America will never fail, and we will never allow it to go in the wrong direction. Too many generations of greatness are counting on us. Enjoy your Thanksgiving knowing that a wonderful future lies ahead!"

The statement played off Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again," fueling speculation that he is planning a political comeback. Trump told Fox News earlier this month that he will "probably" wait until after the 2022 midterm elections to formally announce whether he will run again in 2024.

"I am certainly thinking about it and we’ll see," Trump said. "I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms."

Meanwhile, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said last week that Biden intends to run for reelection in 2024.

A poll released last month by Redfield & Wilton Strategies showed Biden leading Trump by a slim 2-point margin in a hypothetical 2024 matchup.

Former President Donald Trump , in an exclusive interview with Fox News, said he will "probably" wait until after the 2022 midterm elections to formally announce whether he will run for president in 2024.

"I am certainly thinking about it and we’ll see," Trump said. "I think a lot of people will be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and probably will announce that after the midterms."

The former president said that timeline was "probably appropriate."

TRUMP ON WHETHER HE WILL RUN FOR PRESIDENT IN 2024: 'I DON'T THINK WE'RE GOING TO HAVE A CHOICE'

"It doesn’t mean I will," Trump said of whether he will stick to that timeline. "It’s probably appropriate, but a lot of people are waiting for that decision to be made."

The former president said that "a lot of great people who are thinking about running are waiting for that decision, because they’re not going to run if I run."

"We have a lot, they’re all very well named," he said of the GOP White House hopefuls. "But almost all of them said if I run, they’ll never run."

He added: "And that’s nice, primarily because it shows a great degree of loyalty and respect."

As for a potential running mate, Trump said there are "a lot of great people in the Republican Party."

"She said she’d never run if I ran, which I think is a good sign of respect," Trump said. "I was very good to her, I thought she did a very good job at what she did with the United Nations. She did an excellent job."

Just like that every Republican presidential hopeful just stuck their head back in the earth for fear of being thought to run. 

Please Trump; for the sanity of the entire nation (especially all of the TDS suffering loons that already will never recover from just 4 years of you in office). Back down, play king maker, make every damn Republican hopeful kiss the ring. Personally vet all of them and back the one you like best and pull in all of your hard core followers; but don't run again!

The longer that this game of his goes on the more likely any Republican hopeful will left out of position to make a run in the national election. The Democrats are gift wrapping the midterms and next presidential election. Only Trump and the Republicans can screw it up.

Democrats will not be rewarded for the last five and half years and counting of sheer stupidity and corruptness. Biden in his bid to undo all things Trump has wrecked the US. There is not a single damn thing he has done right. The only reason the Republicans haven't called for his impeachment is that would leave and even more incompetent jackass Harris in charge.

It is a shame we only have a two party system; but Republicans are the only choice if Democrats are to be removed; and they must be removed!

Hyper-rhetorical bull patty. Step up! Put something substantial in your comments. And for goodness sake get some discernment! Republicans can't just impeach willy-nilly (with frivolity), because not only would Congress be frittering and blustering on camera (think how stupid it would look on real-time television and in the annals of history replays), but which "made for laughing-stock" Trumpist lawyers would stake his or her reputation (and possible law license) on dishonest, unethical bull patty allegations?

It reminds me of those two 'loser' Trumpist lawyers sanctioned for their ridiculousness and unprofessional treatment of a time-honored, okay, centuries old profession. Of course, accordingly, DJT bailed and left them (both) short-changed and wondering WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED

  1. Why can't we make our usual 'jobs' anymore?
  2. Why are our standards of living taking a 'dive'?

DJT the snake resting on their chests bit down into their hearts and those toxins sank in deeply!

Trump is a narcissist and a pathological liar.   He abused the authority of his office, attempted to coerce officials to lie and engage in unconstitutional acts — even tried to coerce his own VP to do likewise.   He continues to lie about the veracity of the US electoral system after numerous recounts and 61+ frivolous lawsuits.

What kind of mind follows such a person??

Following such a person with a worldwide proven abysmal character harms the integrity of the followers and the organization of which they are part.

These foolish followers of DJT, former republicans and fake conservatives easily forget that Donald J. Trump aligned himself with Chairman Kim Jung Un and President Vladimir Putin, and Turkey President Erdogan and so on and so forth effectively favoring them over and beyond European leaders and Ukraine!

This can signify that a return to a Trump regime would spell disaster for our allies, whom will have prepared contingency plans to thwart the re-installed, "American dictator." It is because of Trump that our allies have already cut some of those lesser "supporting" ties (that bind emotionally our countries together). That is, they are in varying stages of 'going it alone' or in new coalitions.

And, no nation on Earth will respect our election processes again after such rough handling and corruption by Trump, who has 'enlisted' lieutenants to call around the country and threaten officials with departure or consequences. One again, ruining the professional lives of a whole new other sector of American institution life respected by the world! (My opinion, that is.)

Trumpism is an alternative reality that has no basis in great truths. And I am no conservative now, though I once upon a time voted for two conservative presidents.

Good night. More later.  Psst. Trump is an autocrat in his heart. He desires 'slaves' and not individualists and truth-tellers. That is, Donald 'injects' his strong vision of the world into the minds of his followers and then sets about keeping any of that from leaking out!

You quote William F Buckley from his 1959 book "Up from Liberalism" but it's a quote from what source? some quote website? Probably.. I'm about to go into my libary and get my copy of it and see the context in which he wrote it... Cause I'm familiar how quotes are used without context to say things that wasn't intended... Since it is a quote from a work, there is a LOT of context to be had...

The quote you made is in a passage out of his 1959 book "Up from Liberalism" ISBN 0-8128-2969-7 My edition is the second printing 1985 edition.... 

Part I the Failure of Contemporary Liberalism, The Liberal... "His Root Assumptions" section The Idea of Liberalism pg. 175...

The section is ten pages long and the quotation is on page 182.... (BTW; the quotation you pasted above is abridged)

How much of it do you want me to quote? Cause from what I'm reading it clearly misstates what he's talking about, in fact misstates in a way that allows it to be used for whatever someone wants to convey to misstate libertarian thinking...

Does anyone really want to read what he really meant? OR, is this going to be the typical about to get caught in a subterfuge so drop it scenario?

I mean guys on your side of the aisle just LOVE to misquote libertarians or conservatives to make them appear as clueless imbeciles when the opposite is actually true... And in the process basically lie about our positions....

the full section is ten pages and I know most of you liberals aren't willing to read that much, you prefer things dumbed down to single passages as it's easier to misrepresent what is being said that way. And then there are those who are going to ridicule it without even reading it simply cause it is a libertarian thinker probably more educated that all of us put together...

So what do you say? should I dispose of this particular lie of low information? or should I leave it alone.... {chuckle} Anyone wants to try this again? My specialty on News Vine was taking these liberal lying misquotes and revealing just how duplicitous the poster is being by posting the actual plain quote that everyone can read... Directly exposing the lie so to speak and by doing this revealing how much the poster doesn't know.... So do we want some actual real truth?

That quote is mostly used to say that libertarians and conservatives are living in the past and refuse to advance into the future, which is completely out of context...

Conservatism is the tacit acknowledgement that all that is finally important in human experience is behind us; that the crucial explorations have been undertaken, and that it is given to man to know what are the great truths that emerged from them .  

This is the quote I mostly have published in several comments in recent past.

I want to apologize for being 'exhausted' and having a long Thanksgiving day (leading into) and a long "black Friday" with 'enduring' yard work such that I simply left off the source reference to my quote the other day and failed to get back to providing it overnight. Now that I have some "substantial" rest here it is together:

quote-conservatism-is-the-tacit-acknowledgement-that-all-that-is-finally-important-in-human-william-f-buckley-72-44-31.jpg

To be clear, the gist of my comment on this article is not about "defending" what conservative ideology is, because it is clear that whatever it was Donald J. Trump and the present "party apparatus" is altering it drastically. A tacit acknowledgement that change, however horrible, can exist in conservative politics.

More later. After you respond.

Incidentally, do you really need to post 10 pages of text to make the point that the above quote is seeking to provide? Maybe, you can understand why "AZQUOTES" balked at doing so? It would drastically shift the focus to reading and not "pithy." One might even forget the point they were initially striving to make in a comment!

Also, you dropped a new term into this thread: Libertarianism.

William F Buckley is the most renown LIBERTARIAN journalist America has ever had...

When you used his quite you brought libertarianism into the conversation...

You do understand that not all liberalism is equal? there are two distinct brands of it, American Liberalism and European Liberalism...

American Liberalism is commonly known today as Classic Liberalism, of which all of our founders were a huge part of creating...European Liberalism for all intents and purposes is socialism... 

Under European Liberalism, Conservatives are the monarchs and dictators, essentially stateism, Conservatism in Europe means the old worn out way, It's why in Europe, Nazi's are considered rightists on the political spectrum when they really are a different flavor of socialism...

One must ask why European Liberalism treats Nazism as conservative, Because the elite socialists of Europe can explain away communists being socialists and needing a dictator to run them, THEY CANNOT explain away Nazism as being socialist... So they change it to being conservative as it had an absolute dictator as it's leader... So did Communism for that fact... 

THIS is why you guys call Trump a Nazi, a dictator an autocrat and republicans/conservatives as autocrats that fall right into line with him....

William F Buckley explained this quite clearly in that ten page passage you quoted from, he explains the difference between Classic Liberalism and European Liberalism in terms (for the most part) that anyone can understand... (in european liberalism the conservatives are the dictators)

What is Amazing is he wrote that ways back in 1959 and it is a perfect picture of what exactly is happening ideologically in the United States today..... 

Classic liberalism and European liberalism have been fighting a war over the American political landscape for longer than anyone in the nation has been alive... today is just the current battle over it and yes it is a war, a war on liberals yes it certainly is.... It will be going on after everyone alive in the nation right now are in their graves as well...

European liberalism stands for the ideal that government is all powerful, the good of the many outweigh the good of the few or the one... essentially the founding precept of socialism

Classic Liberalism (read American liberalism) stands for the precept that government is created by the individual to protect the individual and thru the individual we protect the whole community/nation...

Those two philosophies are completely inapposite of each other... they will always be at war with each other...

Buckley explains this in the entire passage you quoted from he also covers the problem with the academics of our society who are primarily European liberals and how they control a fair chunk of our higher education system.. (a lot larger chunk of it today with almost complete control of basic education)

That passage pretty clearly represents the state of politics in our nation today... and does it very well....

So where does conservatism fit in all these "isms"?

Conservatism mean exactly the same thing to a Classic Liberal as it does to a European Liberal it means the old way of doing things...

Europe has a long long history of autocrats, monarchs and dictators throughout it's history... Stateism IS the old way of doing things there, one overall grand leader with absolute authority..

America doesn't have that thousand years of history behind us in fact we left Europeans ideologies behind when we left to get away form the abuses those ideologies practiced there... Conservatism in America harkens back to our founders and the ideals of the enlightenment that freedom to choose is a greater force for good than ever being a subject to a monarchy, dictator or government... 

So yes there is a war on Liberals going on in this country... And the European liberalism they wish to install here... And you all damn well know that it will go to guns before it is finally settled if europeanism gets close to taking over here... There is no question about that...

So the ideals of the Founders are as relevant today as they were when formulated... Liberal disparagement of them (like trashing Thomas Jefferson) doesn't matter, we KNOW what America stands for and it isn't what you liberals are preaching or supporting...

No I'm not going to post the pages, I've given the references and as you say it is available online if one cares to look for it... in fact read the whole book, it's a revelation...

I've said all I'm gonna say here at this point... The board over time has become a bastion of European liberal thinking along with the lies and hate that brings...

Sad for me to see.... this one was a place for independent thought and free discussion.. Sadly it isn't anymore..

Classic Liberalism (read American liberalism) stands for the precept that government is created by the individual to protect the individual and thru the individual we protect the whole community/nation...

But in this country, INDIVIDUALS do not PROTECT THE WHOLE community/nation. It is the failure of the (Conservative) majority (not all Whites) - for example, which uses choice to move away into new enclaves seeking to get away from their fellow citizens of color. This identifies one area of this nation's greatest CORRUPTIONS of true individualism and self-reliance.  For conservatives and some conservatives do not want liberals to have the same self-reliances they grant to themselves.

You think you are self-reliant? So you supply food stock for yourself only through what you kill? You medicate with only what you prescribe yourself? You vanish your foes only with the use of your own mind and self-built weaponry? You pave your own paths, streets, and roads? You sew and patch your own garments? You perform surgery/ies only through your own hands? You patrol your community and defend the nation at-large?

Do you see how much you take for granted or 'man of the community'?

Individualism and self-reliance is white male propaganda talk, designed in the past and now to invoke visions of the white male as 'strength' and others as weak. Actually, what this talk of self-reliance and individualism is - is talk by some groups of whites (not ever all Whites) to express their NON-ACCEPTANCE of getting along with People of Color and Accepting People Of Color and Others into their CONSERVATIVE COMMUNITIES.

That is, it's coded speech used by White Separatists and MODERN CONSERVATIVES knowingly or unknowingly appropriating the lingo!

Furthermore, that is why SEPARATISTS can't agree to federal rule of law, because to do so, would mean blending into one national ("all") and that is remote to the conservative way of looking at life in this country.

You have a very literal definition of individual don't you, according to your ideal you just posted any two people working together becomes community and thence non-individual....

Race is the root issue, modern conservatism, is using "scented words" to hold people of color in a 'holding pattern.'  I won't insult you by questioning your understanding of this, but nor will I be condescended to when I know better.

Another way to look at the state of play: Conservatives and especially some conservatives, have transitioned race, people of color, out of the spotlight, and put in place a (new) political war against liberals, secularists, gender identity, other non-religious persons (and non-Christians), and so forth. Interestingly, not a republican or conservative affilitation in the list!

I, we, are wise to such 'displays.'

Lastly, I am busy these days, and have much to share on various 'story-lines' - the question was asked (of you) about what you consider conservatism to be or words to that effect, to which you deferred to questioning me about my views. I tentatively answered the 'question' with a quick reply about a William F. Buckley quote to which you have latched on to (for dear life) as if you think you can win by 'beating me' verbally with it. You can not. Everyone knows who matters that Buckley was the 'father' of what it means to be conservative in the U. S through is long-running journal, The National Review.

So either say something helpful to this discussion, move on, or just sit and stew.

BULL SHIT. This government is a republic for the god-fearing and the god-less. Stop with the high-sounding rhetorical 'flourishes.' Thus, I demand that you give unto God what is faithful and unto mankind what is reasonably acceptable.

As to economic freedom rhetoric it is a tool in the hands of republicans to wield as justification for why they can't work with minorities and other people of color. Some conservatives are turning to and currently demonizing democrats and liberals for their party inclusions and diversification, in an attempt to de-couple the race narrative.

It is a lie straight out of hell. And, for my part, I won't let some conservatives get away with it.

Ask yourselves this: Why have the white supremacist flocked to the modern conservatism and republicanism 'side' and do not reside in a wing of the diverse party of liberalism and democratic politics?  Answer: Because they found an 'abode' ready to occupy alongside republicans, conservatives, and Donald J. Trump.

If yourselves truly wanted individualism, economic freedom, and liberty to abound, you would team up with liberals to make it so! Instead, you counter-balance diversifying this country for good-sake with your 'combat' and suppressive rhetoric and activities.

It remains to be seen if targeting groups of Blacks and others has 'legs' or staying power over one or two election cycles.

No doubt.   Maybe this possibility would motivate all those who do not vote to actually do so.

But if Trump were to be elected that would mean that the D party totally blew it by failing to put forth a candidate who could beat Trump.   One would think it easy to put forth a candidate who could beat a worldwide-known narcissist and pathological liar who is the only PotUS in our history who tried to steal a presidential election through lies, coercion, lawsuits, abuse of influence of office and suborning of unconstitutional acts.

Either way, there is no excuse.   Electing Trump (given there are plenty of alternative R candidates) is irresponsible, irrational and unpatriotic.

"... Electing Trump (given there are plenty of alternative R candidates) is irresponsible, irrational and unpatriotic."

That's a pretty plain statement of the liberal position on him... 

Electing or trying to elect people of low character is a recent characteristic of both political parties....

To be honest, he did a fairly good job under very heavy opposition pressure and stress, character, we learned that character really doesn't mean much in an elected president from Bill, so one of the questions becomes WHY does it mean so much now? In doing the job of president he was very effective, being the public persona of the president he was horrible... As far as personal character I could care less... And seeing as how Bills character issues, (almost as bad as Trump's) was widely excused by liberals.. and lets not even go towards Jack Kennedy's personal character issues which were buried by both sides...

If character was so important, why did we elect them? or LBJ who was a blatant racist, Or FDR's  or any number of other politicians? why now all of a sudden character is the prime reason for deciding who to elect?

Trump's character was not as well known when he was elected.   That is why I repeatedly note what he did post his loss.   The Big Lie campaign clearly showed his abysmal character.   How anyone cannot see this is scary.  

Trump, unlike every other PotUS, tried to steal the election through lies, coercion, frivolous lawsuits, abuse of influence of office and suborning of unconstitutional acts.

Do you not recognize this?   One cannot sensibly compare the character of Trump to any other PotUS because no other PotUS came close to third-world tactics like Trump.

why now all of a sudden character is the prime reason for deciding who to elect?

In Trump's unique case, character matters because his is abysmal.    When a character flaw is so bad, it damn well should be taken as that which eliminates a candidate.   Let's take another character flaw of an historical individual;  the flaw is an irrational hatred of a particular ethnicity and a history of using influence against said ethnicity.   If people objected to this candidate because of this extreme, potent hatred would you ask:  "why all of a sudden is ethnic hatred the prime reason for deciding who to elect?"?

Read the blue in the portion that you quoted:

TiG @2.2.25 ☞ Trump's character was not as well known when he was elected.   That is why I repeatedly note what he did post his loss.

Trump's character was clearly known to be highly flawed given his miserable attacks on others based on looks, inflictions, etc.    He had a history in New York of being a slimy businessman with a history of bankruptcies, refusals to pay, and defaults.   And his 'grab 'em by the pussy' revelations surely gave people a clue about his womanizing and crudeness (among other stories).

But his post election loss Big Lie campaign revealed to the world the true depth of his abysmal character.   He showed the world a textbook example of pathological lying (for two months as PotUS and then continuing to the present) and utter narcissism where he would trash our entire electoral system and generate all sorts of divisive energy in a ridiculous attempt to try to steal a presidential election for the first time in US history.

See the difference?   I am saying that if the depth of Trump's character flaws was not as clear before and during his presidency;  his Big Lie campaign surely should have made it clear to any functioning mind.

I've said it to EVERYONE Trump is an ASS, Jackass first class... but he WAS an effective president... The FACTS you claim to love says so and you can't change them no matter what you think of his character...

This is the problem you have with the hate rhetoric, trump had a set of policies in place that made this country have the greatest short term economic expansion in history, lowest unemployment and all the other great things he accomplished... Biden come in and in one day switches all Trump's policies off and replaces them with his policies...

Ten months later look where we are at... pushing almost historic inflation, the nation a laughing stock around the world thousands of people laid off at government command 12 million people out of the work force taking retirement never to return... Companies unable to find much less hire workers...

An absolute disaster!

This is an open book Republican policies compared to Democrat policies, never in our history have we had such a DIRECT comparison of one verses the other...

Oone day the nation is humming along, greatest expansion we've ever seen, covid hit, which slowed the economy, the election debacle, absolute policy reverses and the economy completely tanks....

And the people have seen enough to make their judgments....

Why do you think the democrat poll ratings are falling to the lowest levels in history? there is it for ya...

It is demonstrably true that:

  • Trump lied about the election being rigged and lied about having evidence to support his lies
  • Trump attempted to coerce officials to 'find votes' for him
  • Trump attempted to coerce his own VP to engage in an unethical and unconstitutional tabling of SoS certified election results so that he would be the 'winner' given the remaining states.
  • Trump promoted recounts and questioned the integrity of the entire US electoral system based on lies
  • Trump triggered 61+ frivolous lawsuits based on promises of evidence that never arose
  • Trump worked his sycophants into a frenzy telling them the election was rigged, that he actually won, that their votes were disenfranchised and it is they who are the force of change to correct this
  • Trump abused the influence of his office in an attempt to steal a presidential election
  • Trump continues to maintain his Big Lie that the election was rigged even to the present

Now let's see a factual argument that shows that a person who would actually do this, for the first time in USA history, has the character suitable to be the president of the USA and that it is rational and patriotic to support such a person rather than rally about a different GOP member who has the same policy views but whose character is not so abysmal.

Donald Trump is smart. Or is it the assemblage he constantly chairs and permits to surround and advice him? This man has determined that if he can not win the popular vote-that it is critical that he suppress its counts in red-states urban (People of Color) populations. In effect, causing the power of millions to be diluted and impotent.

[Partial return of]

The Rule of The Rustics:

The Civil Rights Era and Sunbelt Georgia

As the civil rights era of the 1950s and 1960s unfolded, the interests, aims, and ambitions of Atlanta’s political and economic leaders diverged dramatically in many ways from those that prevailed in the state at large.

As the city’s population surged, Atlanta voters chafed under the state’s county unit system , which gave, for example, three rural counties with a combined population of 7,000 just as much clout in statewide elections as Fulton County , with its 550,000 inhabitants.

The result was that the more racially moderate and economically progressive candidates generally favored by Atlantans had to fight an uphill battle against self-styled rustics and race-baiters like Eugene Talmadge , who won the governorship four times in the 1930s and 1940s without, as he bragged, ever campaigning in a county with streetcars. Talmadge dominated the state’s political scene until he died as governor-elect in 1946, precipitating the bizarre and embarrassing  three governor’s controversy

Trump is working to to set up red-states to use traces of this and other visible tactics as described above, as back-up in case of losing the popular vote in 2024. Subsequently, he is stacking the courts, state legislatures, and federal legislatures with 'cohorts' who will deny and defy unfavorable vote counts against him.

This kind of politicking should not be allowed to stand!

Independents, if you value order, decency, and the absence of deepening chaos, put your power and influence to not let this be!

Now that you care for the policies of a "jackass" human being you despise (but you will take his money), that you do not care the man is an "empty suit" (because he makes you feel empowered (though he takes more power off the top before handing it over to his "community") - well, that is why we care to call Donald Trump and you, out Nowhere Man!

Hi TiG. I agree with you. Still, I want to offer a point of consideration/clarification.

I think this 'notion' that democrats in totality don't think for themselves but defer to authority is superfluous and tedious rhetoric, largely spread by propagandist conservatives. Albeit partially true for those D members who do not take the time to do any or varying at-length research of issues and policies and personalities for themselves.

In the case of minorities, Black Americans especially, some conservatives (AKA: Trump supporters/enablers/surrogates/Fox anchors) deploy a talking point that goes something like, 'Blacks are on the democratic party "plantation" because they are too shiftless to gather information to know and 'therefore' forsake it. And, nothing could be further from the truth, generally-speaking.

People of Color (Blacks especially) reside in one party writ-large, because the 'second' party doubles-down on not making reasonable concessions which allow their votes to have value, meaning, and POWER in the over-all operations or forward movement of the Republican platform (if they have one). That is, people of color who join that party effectively yield (give up their) power and social identity to become republican and conservative beholden to conservative group-think. In today's term that is Trump-think.

Democratic Party members want national unity, but do not want blind devotion to selfish ideologies that suppress other groups unreasonably, give servitude to party heads, or bind them to a particular leader alone.

Actually closed party primaries are coming back because of the large number of independents.  If one is not a member of a party they have absolutely no business or right to influence the internal operations of a party they are not a part of.  Independents need to be made as politically powerless as possible with no input in any party and no vote on any partisan matter except in the general election.  Independents need to know that unless they actually join a party to influence it, the GOP will drift right and the Dems will drift left and they will get the say and influence that they deserve, absolutely none whatsoever.

That's full of bull patty! First, our nation needs all this 'brainpower' from all its citizens combined. Yes, on a good day when some conservatives are taking this all seriously, that means you all too! Why? Because this nation can not be a world superpower from small-town America. It takes cities and world class cities at that to have the proper sophistication to engage the international community.

Sorry, small-towns, can't fit that bill!

Second and lastly, our founders did not intend for any future generations to cause any one of them to become a sacred 'artifact'! And surely, if the founders, those men, were alive today, I bet to a person they would tell you, us, not to hype the hard-times of past history. That is, those men would surely make appropriate changes to the society as it exist, no longer 'luxuriate' in their early "supremacy," and welcome the diversity that today has come into its own.

This diversity was long in coming; but it is here now.

So you have your slogans, but I dispute any notion that those founding fathers would want this nation to stagnate in some fool-hardy attempt to resurrect dead men and 'enthrone' them.

Any chance the republicans had to win went away with their crooked forced installation of Mittsey as the candidate... He had a snowballs chance of beating Obama and they knew it, but he wasn't an outsider... Ron Paul was an outsider.... they changed the rules on a phoney voice vote to allow a voice vote to select the nominee and they did this while a third of the delegates weren't even there and the noise meters gauging the voice vote were much lower when they presented the rule change... oh, I almost forgot, they READ THE RESULTS OF THE VOTE OFF THE TELEPROMPTER!!! which means they had the results edited into the narrative BEFORE the assembly EVER TOOK PLACE!!!

Why? Cause Ron Paul had the votes for the nomination on the second ballot so they could not let it go to a second ballot..... (the rules called for everyone to vote their delegate status on the first vote but Mittsey didn't have enough to outright win even under the rules hence the crooked rules change) On the second ballot the electors could vote anyway they wanted...

As a response they lost 86% of the libertarian vote and it cost Mittsey the election... The Republican party HANDED Obama his second term....

He wants to see if his rubber stamp anti-American fascists will be there to support his lunacy before he says he will run or not. 

Most likely he will not run and just keep the money that pours in from donations, which is another reason he hasn't said if he will run or not; he knows if he says he isn't running his supporters will not send him free money anymore after working that extra shift at the Tilt-A-Whirl or knocking over a liquor store.

So what?  Who cares?

Exactly what I expected.   You do not care about the abysmal character of Trump.   You seek to return the presidency to a worldwide-known narcissist and pathological liar who is the only PotUS in our history who tried to steal a presidential election through lies, coercion, lawsuits, abuse of influence of office and suborning of unconstitutional acts.

Irrational, irresponsible and unpatriotic.

Blows my mind Ender.   The presidency used to be an office to be respected.   Our parent's generation would never vote for someone who has so thoroughly proven their abysmal character.   Who cannot comprehend that Trump cares only about Trump; that Trump will abuse his office to get his way; that Trump speaks and acts only to stroke his own ego and encourage his followers to 'love him'?

It is pathetic and sickening to observe this mindless, cultist behavior in our nation.

When a PotUS attempts to steal a presidential election through lies, coercion, lawsuits, abuse of influence of office and suborning of unconstitutional acts, would that not be so over the top as to eliminate the individual from consideration for any public office (much less PotUS)??

WTF is wrong with people today?


Oddly, if the economy had not coincidentally grown while Trump was PotUS (similar to what took place when Clinton was PotUS) he would have no real support.   His supporters essentially attribute the great economy during his first 3 years to him ... as if he was the reason ... as if he has some magical power to make the economy 'great'.   How utterly naive can people be?

I most certainly have the right to point out demonstrably traits.    But, to use your language literally in first usage, I cannot determine the traits and if I could determine them, I would determine positive, not negative traits.

By the way, the 'you do not get to' is a Pee Wee Herman 'rebuttal'.   It is whining.   Make an argument rather than whine.

We disagree as to the extent of his so called acts as well as to his worthiness to be President again.  Since he would not be able under term limits to run again once elected, there’s nothing to worry about.

Emphatically. No one (sane) would want to positively affirm Donald Trump as Head, Leader, President, or "Leader of the Free World" just to spite supposed haters of that man.

Jefferson clearly adores his private perception of Donald as strongman who 'owns the libs.'

It is a stupid comment.

Well at least one person claims that he does just that.

How funny.

You act like there are not tens of millions of other Americans who would like to see Trump be our President again.  I’m not remotely unique in that regard.  More conservatives on this site would prefer another Republican and if Trump doesn’t run, I could support De Santis, Tim Scott, Pompeo, Noem, Haley for President and another of them for VP.

I do??    I think I have stated dozens of times on this forum that there are tens of millions of people who support Trump.   That is the problem ... that there are so many.

So of course you are not the only one.

supporters will not send him free money anymore after working that extra shift at the Tilt-A-Whirl or knocking over a liquor store. 

Haven't watched the news lately. Those are Democrat jack booted thugs operating in liberal bastions of stupidity rioting and looting to their hearts content. Doubt they will share the money/profit with the Democrat enablers. 

Democrats- making the US a shittier place to live in.

A great many things occur in large metropolises that rarely occur in small-town hallows. After all, there is a joke that goes:

Why do bank robbers rob banks? Answer: Because, that is where the money is.

Here is another one (though surely less or not even funny):

Why are wild fires so 'wild'? Answer: Because, rain drops and water hydrants are remote and distant things.

It's not nice to laugh or mock the 'miseries' of others. For surely we all have our own sufficiently to boot!

When local district attorneys crack down on crime again then these problems will go away.  We don’t have to worry about it happening here because the local population won’t tolerate it.  If Antifa showed up here to vandalize and loot there would be 100 Rittenhouse types  here to end it.

So by they, you associate all liberals into your 'porridge' for mocking and condemning. Jefferson, you are surely predictable. These criminals, and they are part of organized crime of some kind (despite their ages) will be dealt with eventually. But, your mocking tone is unforgivable. Know this you can not manage the world through the use of small town values and limited outcomes.

The nation is just about to get a 'full-on' look at you all and make a decision to follow after your small-world values or detail to you (dismiss) why you can not be allowed to continue sway over the masses from your conservative enclaves.
