I just want to say up front that I fully believe THAT BOTH Candidates belong in prison, They are evil no question but I have serious reservations with the idea that Trump is willing to prosecute and imprison Clinton.
Now I know that there are plenty of people thinking that I'm being a hypocrite with what I've said so far, or that I'm making no sense but my reservation isn't about Clinton going to prison. It's the fact that Trump is literally threatening his political opponent with prison.
He is not debating his opponent he is saying he will imprison his primary opponent.
Now who else has done shit like that in history?
Thats a tactic that Benito Mussolini and other totalitarian dictators used heavily and happily and now people are saying, 'oh you just invoked Mussolini you lose'. The fact is that when someone is literally saying he will imprison his political opponent, THAT PERSON IS COMPARABLE. This makes me nervous as it's a slippery slope.
Ted Cruz says he believes that abortion is murder and if we allow people like Trump to imprison their political opponents, is it any stretch of the imagination that a man like Ted (The Canadian Bastard) Cruz would try to do the same to pro-choice advocates?
Or on the other side...
By this logic say Gabrielle Gifford, who survived being shot in the head during an assassination attempt, was elected.
Are we supposed to be okay with a person like her trying to imprison gun rights activists?
That is kind of how I see Trump's wanting to put Clinton in jail if he wins. It's not about the person; it's the fact that it sets a precedent for the winner of an election to throw their former opponent in jail. That's actually fucking terrifying.
