@Girther10 Thanks. Very kind.
Can US mannage with out them lower middelclass, and only coupe with heigh income people, and should US keep on taking the piss of low income group, sending millions of job's to china and Mexico. Or should you have a guy like Trump, who can talk the language that the lower middle class can understand. Or is it finer to rule in rich and highly educated voices. Are the Democrats willing to throw democracy away in order to win the election? Are Americans equally happy that Trump has improved the US economy more than even Regan did. Yes, although this Chinese virus, of course, is going to destroy all the good economic tiger jumps the US economy has done under Trump, yes his hard line to China has really borne fruit. Very honestly, we Europeans did not take a crap at all and continue to trade with the world's largest dictatorship, and also got their thanks in the form of the virus they spread to the rest of the world, together because we still pay homage to globalization so much, the only wins on this is the Chinese. I certainly hope that we Europeans and Americans together can overcome the crisis and turn our anger on the "red dictatorship" of China, it is important to remember all our hardships come from our over-engaging engagement with the Chinese
@Petra150 Thanks. I am not clear on the relationship of your point to the issue I was addressing. As regards your first point, it is less about could the United States get along without a lower middle class. As that therm has been historically defined, as the economy shifts from an industrial/manufacturing base to a tech/service base, the lower middle class as historically defined has been declining about 2% over each four year cycle. This is not unknown in history. (See also the shift in Europe - the disappearance of a serf/peasant class and the rise of the lower middle class as Europe industrialized)Suffice to say, I could point to other examples but that is not the point here.In terms of China, while I am not without my sympathies for your viewpoint, it is apt to play out in more complex ways. I offer my answer (under my "Nightdrot" nom de guerre) to this question for further detail - How do you think the people of the world should hold the government of China accountable, and punish them for what they did to us? ↗
I'd been telling everyone about my dear of China since they drove down as single student in 89, we in Europe were glad when we teared down the wall , as you splendid president Mr. Regan made possible, but to be honest we forgot the much bigger wall. I'll read you comment on China , and thoug I'm a great lover of " give the people what the people want" ... hope you get my point , as you got Trump. And it might came as a surprise to many Americans. I do also admit the China problem and further on India... Nigeria and so on, how do we as a work give large population the same democratic laws and hope as we have, with out ending up , making our own economy weak and perhaps end like them rather than the opposite. Hope you understand my bad English. I'd appreciate your reply or message
@Petra150 Forgive me. I am so sorry and I do not mean to offend, but I am not really able to follow your argument. In part, I gather, because English is not your first language.To start, I do not see the connection you are attempting to make between the subject of the question - the character of Trump voters - and your point - as regards China. The two do not appear to be related at least in terms of my initial reply.Secondly, while I agree with you regarding the threat posed by China, the nature of that contest is more deeply rooted, and has deeper strategic origins, than the recent coronavirus. Moreover, it is on the nature of the international arena, especially given man's imperfection and tendencies toward violence, that such conflict is inevitable and not generally subject to popular opinion except in the most unusual circumstances. (An example might be the beginning of the Spanish-American War, and even then conflicting strategic interests were already at play before American public opinion helped light the fuse, so to speak.)Finally, free market economic theory has it that when one benefits that all, over time, will benefit. Indeed, this has actually been the case as free trade became more and more the norm in the post-WWII era and then especially after the Cold War. Indeed, the United Nations Organization recently reported that global poverty is at its lowest level in the history of mankind.Of course, there are trade-offs and what the West is learning is that the free market/free trade model - while it will move the Western economy to a high paying, high profit service/high tech base, it means that poorer agricultural economies will move toward manufacturing and extractions. Thus the West now finds that many of the medical supplies it wants and deems important to its national security are now manufactured in China.CONT.
Thus you are beginning to see the stirrings - and you actually saw this before coronavirus - in the West against free trade and free markets as manifested in populist politics and hyper-nationalism. See also Brexit. See also the nationalist governments in Poland and Hungary. See also the Basque and Scottish independence movements.Suffice to say that this will have certain effects. Nations will feel themselves more secure strategically but are apt to pay the price is slower economic activity and relatively higher poverty. Ditto states will define themselves less as economic units - see also the EU - and more by their narrower identities - see also again Poland, Hungary, the Scots and Basques, among others.Anyhow, that covers it in brief compass based on what I understood you be discussing. My apologies if I missed your point.
We two can have a lot of exciting argument , and though we bout are from the western world, me having my time in Denmark in mind, think a president candidate mention Denmark a lot. Still are much more into the brace UK citizen wise decision to leave EU, they just were far to long about it, I'm sure if you asked an Italian or Poland people or Hungarian they also will leave EU , I'm not aware if Germany will, know many Danes who will. How are your opinion about all those poor workers in US who lost there jobs on the first week in America before many Americans have lost there life due to Corona. I'd heard this night 17 millions at least have been sacked, so very fast American companies forgotten the billions of $ given in stock dividends and profits over the last few years because there is the death toll that corresponds to a flu epidemic, or less than killed in traffic. Like you reply , hope we can continue our writing , and still I excuse my language , but I guess you wouldn't like German or better Danish. Do you like Volleyball bi played a lot , and CrossFit too, to prewent a bad back. Live to send you messages binsted but too new inhere
@Petra150 A few points. 1) I regret that German and Danish are not in my vocabulary - at least not fluently. So we will have to make do. (I do have German relatives and I have visited both Germany and Denmark, but I am not fluent in either language.)2) As far as Europe, there is certainly a backlash against the EU, but it is not stratighforward. In fact, Italy is relatively pro-EU. In some countries, it is more a populist backlash. The theory behind the EU being that economics and a rootedness in natural rights can compensate for a narrower sense of national identity - this being in the intellectual tradition of the Enlightenment. Suffice to say, people get their sense of identity from nationality, ethnicity, language and religion, among other things, and so the EU has produced a backlash. Very widespread in eastern Europe. In Germany, with its complicated history, it is less intense. However, it may be found in the Alternative for Germany policy and the social movement around it.If I might, to give you a sense of where I am "coming from," I will offer my replies to a few questions. Do not feel obliged to read them but given the character limits on answers, you may find my responses to these questions applicable to the points you have made.CONT.
Hope this helps:1) Are you a conservative or a liberal? ↗2) Do you believe Socialism is really just Communism? ↗3) Which is the dumbest argument the right wing in America use to try to make a case for Hitler and the Naizs being "leftist"? ↗4) Soooo Europe, are you ready for your nations to give up their sovereignty to the EU? ↗5) China again prove that why they are super power. They done it again. Where is "THE SUPER POWER AMERICAN" scientists? ↗6) With global cases quickly rising towards 1 million, do you still believe Coronavirus is still Media overhype and mass hysteria? ↗ (NOTE: The stats on coronavirus here are 8 days old at this writing.)Okay. So I have punished you enough. However, I hope - without boring you - that I have given you some idea of my perspective in a general sense on the questions we have been discussing,A pleasure, and we can chat again soon.
Thanks a lot ill read , were you singel and did you plat vollyball. pretty low interlectual questions i do appoligize. what are your background, you seem well educatet from a tall dum blondes view point, inteligense and personality trill me. love your reply. what were your opinion on the 17 million sacked us workers. huess im either left or right wing. im a tall blocker at vollyball, hate muslims and think they should leave Europe as soon as possible. just some pointd about me
@Petra150 First, don't be so harsh on yourself. You sound like a lovely woman.Second, just briefly. I have a degree in communications and political philosophy. I work in politics and am a former Congressional staffer. (U. S. House of Representatives as well as working for the U. S. Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe.) I write - as you can tell - extensively and have been published in various American newspapers either under my own name or that of my employer. (Including the Washington Post, the Orlando Sentinel and the (now defunct) New York City Tribune.)In addition, my girlfriend and I have lived together for 12 years and we have three little Munchkins. They are the center of my universe. Read about them here: Valentines Day Contest: What does #TrueLove mean to you? ↗ and here: Is having a baby actually pretty boring? ↗As to your last, it is no surprise. As I allude to in the question I sent you on the topic of coronavirus, I think that there were more prudent ways to handle the virus than shutting down the economy. (It would have made far more sense to attempt to protect vulnerable populations such as the elderly than going to a blanket quarantine.) That said, shut down the economy and a massive recession and unemployment is what you will get. Panic trumped analysis. Now people are expecting the economy will bounce back when this is over. That is unlikely and a prolonged period of slow growth and relatively high unemployment should be expected.Hope that helps. When you get the chance, tell me about yourself.
Me s very tall dumb blind just sharing my home made analysis, get a little scared to try to even communicate my humble thoughts to a big bloke from the paranas of power. I'm just a must thirty women who have a fiancee for now 5 years and two small girls , we had actually planned a wedding this springy, but the Chinese just blew up when they let out the disease, and we as million other had to change plans for the future. Well I'm not bitter , being bitter is for small people and we are not small in any ways, and Danes and Germans are some kinds of supremacists who take pragmatic discussions, the mistakes we did more than 80 years ago seems long forgotten in the time we live in now, but I'll bet you our noth European way of living will not end , due to this horrible disease. I personally think some people and government might acted to hard, to slow , we have a saying hard to translate but I give it a shot. " be careful the medication does not kill the patient" that's just my humble opinion , now as I'm worthless to express my humble opinion and too feel a little scared to chat an important guy like you, but still I'd love to know about other people and still I'm so extroverted I love the communication with a " big shot " like you. Cont
I love being a mother though my harsh opinion on something have been lesser, and other have been worse. This chrises we obviously end out with due to Chinese carelessness and an an EU with no act when it is finally needed. Seems to bother me most is the future our kids might face , my fiancee who is a fair bit older than me , have two wonderful kids , they are in there start twenties and finish there economic education, and now face trouble getting a job to start there own carriere. But at the end of the day, what don't kill you make you strong. A lesson I'd practice all my life, in sport and my social life ( growing up as a gigantic tall girl weren't always fun , to stand fairly alone behind every little girl getti All the hot guy's... well I got my Knight on his shining armor now and im not complaining anymore and many men face greater difficulties dating than I'd probably did, we people usually too easy feel sorry for us self. Love your next reply
@Petra150 A few points:1) As I mentioned, you sound like a lovely lady and it is a pleasure to converse with you.2) Believe me, I am not a "big shot." I have been lucky to have an interesting career and the chance to meet some influential people. However, were you to see me, or my name, in the paper or on television, you would not know me. Besides, my girlfriend has a hard enough time keeping me off of my high horse and she asked me to ask you not to give me an ego - at least not one bigger than the one I already have.3) Perhaps, rather than exchange on this question, it would be better to do so privately. I have "followed" you, now if you do the same we can continue the conversation without boring others on topics not related to the question posted here and to which I initially responded.4) My apologies, but as your command of written English is not strong as it is not your first language, I would ask you to limit yourself to one - or at most two - topics at a time. Your last post mentioned a half-dozen different points and I would not even begin to know how - nor even have the time to address all of them at once.5) Finally, to the extent you are able, please write in proper paragraphs and sentences. Your last posting, I regret to say, between the sentence structure and the various topics covered was almost unreadable.CONT.
6) You sound like a wonderful person and I am happy to hear that you have someone in your life. I am genuinely interested to learn more. Oh, and by the way, other than some interest in baseball I am not really a sports fan. My girlfriend, ironically, is more than I am. Ditto my younger brother.Anyhow, I promise that I will do all that I can to understand what you have written and reply. However, it is axiomatic that if you wish to be understood you must make yourself understandable. I am happy to chat with you and deeply regret that I cannot converse with you in your language. However, I have to ask you to make yourself as clear as possible in English. I look forward to chatting with you privately. For tonight I will probably have to wrap up soon as it is near time to get the little Munckins to bed and spend some quality time with my girlfriend.
Never heard do you play any sport, I'd love to know, Volleyball been my sport due to my height , I'd had a great advantage at the net ofcause, I'd used to be a little embarrassed by using my overwhelming height in front of my much shorter player, and usually tried to play with the guys, but found out I hat to go easy on them, guys don't usually like girls who might end up challenge them on their physique, so rather play with the other women, I could easy have made a top player if not for my love for my fiancee I met 8 years ago, he don't play any sport , guess he couldn't even block a single spike, as I'm not sure he'd ever could reach the top of the net. But I love him just as much anyway, and like his passion for other sports as football and cycling , and his great interest bin wine production and as an collecter of wine too. We are great fan of particular french wines Burgundy and Medoc wines , he just blew me over with he's great cos d'estournel 86 , bang I was sold , the way he spoke of it and afterwards about mee too, sorry to bother an important guy like you about my love, but for a girl like me with my height seems great disability , you get carried away when a great guy show you passion and love. Sorry once again to bother you with my trivial life. but just a little reply and I'll let you off
@Petra150 That's okay. To repeat, no, I am not much of a sports fan and do not play at all. My girlfriend is more of a sports fan than I am. My brother also used to play baseball and track in high school and college.Beyond that, again I would ask that you please try your best to use proper paragraph and sentence structure and limit yourself to just one or two topics.Finally, direct message me rather than responding through this question. I have already "followed" you.Gotta run.
Thanks a lot and I'm so deeply embarrassed that my English were so bad endeed, I'd been traveling a lot in UK as my fiancee stepdad were from UK, and we'd been on holiday there for many times. Sometimes I read some US comments, I have hard to understand too and wonder if they ever went to school. But must admit you English is more like the Shakespeare English I'd read when working myself trough Othello and Romeo and Julie , not a critic but must admitted my written englis isn't done better when I get excited and use Google translate for sliding my text up, this reply is without GT. Hope you understand. I'm letting you off for now , time is 2:42 at my place I'm just a little fascinated that a great guy like you take his time replying me, and still embarrassed my English can't be understood.
@Petra150 You are exceptionally kind and I assure you that you have no need to apologize and absolutely no need to be embarrassed. Moreover, I promise you that I am not anything special, and that I am more than pleased to chat with you.That said, I do recommend that you "Follow" me so that we can exchange private messages rather than take up space with unrelated topics on this question. Anyhow, there is absolutely no need to be embarrassed or to apologize. Let me just add that, whatever its limits, your written English is still better than my German or Danish. So see? You actually have me one-upped. Just to add, notwithstanding the virus, we make Easter Sunday a big holiday with my children - the Easter Bunny and all that. So for the next few days , please do not be offended should you write and I do not get back with you right away. The next few days will be family days - if a little less intense than normal given the virus.
Thanks and have a splendid Easter
@Petra150 Absolutely, and you as well. Truly, it is a great pleasure. Happy Easter Sunday and my very best to you and your family.
Unfortunately I can't get you through this site's message function, but I think you can send me so I can reply
@Petra150 You need FIRST to "follow" me. Then you can message me. I have already tried to message you - I am already following you - and am unable to do so. To message each other privately we need to be "following" each other.All the best.
Thank you for trying to explain to the opinion owner. He is a communist moron though who wants to end up in a gulag or shot in the head out in the woods somewhere. Me I'll be voting for Trump.
By " worst people" what do you mean? On the other hand, go fuck urself!

He's probably getting a Soros check to post this filth.
I don't resent Trump supporters. I didn't vote for him but I can see why people did at the time. After all, the option was Killery. I was viscerally relieved when I woke up after the election to find that she had lost. The woman is a pure monster.So look what the Democrats have to offer. NOTHING.
@Lliam Yes she was (as Joe Rogan put it, I don't know if she had any one killed, but the fact that I have to wonder is already a bad sign.). My issue with the left is predominantly what this post is doing, the idea that instead of us all wanting the same thing but having a different idea on how to get their, that one side (in this case the left) is superior in all ways to the right and that the right is pure evil and must be destroyed. If that was not so prevalent on the left I would not have as many issues with them as I do, its the egotism, elitism, and raw seething hatred they have for every one who isn't them that angers me. I've got a friend who is left leaning moderate. We disagree on some things, I have no issues with him, he is a good guy, he is a smart man, and we can have civil disscusions about things. I wish that we could do that more often (I think that's what has radicalized so many on the left, they have been able to create echo chambers and are able to shout down any one they disagree with (which is partially why we got trump, he stood up to them (that's one of the main reasons I like him, he has a back bone something republicans have not had in a long time.).
@Lliam I agree too, the democrats have nothing to offer. That's something I pointed out multiple times, they had an extreme socialist which most americans understand would destroy our society not make it better, biden who is quite frankly senile at this point (not an insult its just a fact he is clearly at an age where his mind is going and every time he speaks he is showing that), they presented Hillary 2.0 in the form of Warren (who I at least didn't have to worry about having any one suicided but was still pretty much a Hillary Clinton type with playing the woman card and being willing to lie and do what ever it took to win). I don't think they could have beaten trump but their best chance was a reasonable moderate democrat (I mean I voted for Obama the first time (biggest mistake I ever made) namely because he seemed reasonable). Its really screwed up.
I used to think my values were liberal. My values haven't changed. I think liberalism has changed and many liberals have gone completely off the rails. That's partially due to the fact that they think the Democratic party is liberal, even though it is more right wing, neoliberal, pro-authoritarian and war mongering now than any previous Republican. I no longer identify with labels. I am not part of a herd. I think for myself. For example, I am a strong supporter of second amendment rights and individual liberty. I've watched things in the country change for the worse, particularly since 911. I know some really woke people on the left and right. And I have a feeling that you and I would get along just fine.
@Lliam The democratic party is not right wing, right wing. Right wing extremism is more aligned with fundamentalism, like what you see in the middle east (and despite claims, no the right in the US has never reached that point (they got stupid yes, but never to that degree). What democrats are are extremist on the left which is your socialist and your communists. Both are anti liberal (if we are going by classic definition of liberal), just with a difference in the details.That said, yes the democrats are not who they use to be, I mean look at trump he was a democrat his entire life until running for president. He has more in common with the old school democrats then he does with modern democrats. Again, this is what echo chambers do, they just magnify the extreme aspects of an ideology until its unrecognizable.Yeah, 911 did a number on us. The patriot act had been pushed for years and had always been rejected because it clearly violated individual rights. The moment 911 happened though, they just signed it in without question and screwed us all over with it. That's what power hungry people do, they wait for a moment of weakness, when people are afraid because when your afraid your not thinking, and then they exploit it to their advantage and every one elses disadvantage. Its why we need to stay vigilant so they can't pull that crap again.
@Lliam Me personally, I've never liked labels, I think each group is wrong in different ways, some times right in others. I would say first and foremost I'm a constitutionalist, I believe in the individual because if an individual has the power then if they are corrupt or screw up, it only affects them or a small area, but if its a government the entire nation will suffer for it. I'm also socially conservative in my personal values but am libertarian in that I think every one has the right to live their life (I don't know how to live my own life, why should I tell some one else how to live theirs?). I think we would get along just fine, like I said difference of opinion should be expected, being able to accept that and still respect the other person should be the norm but sadly currently isn't.
I see both parties as almost identical in their dedication to neoliberalism and imperialism. Reagan ushered in neoliberalism and the Democrats embraced it because that's how political parties make money. And that's all they care about. The only difference between the two parties is, the Republicans make no bones about being cold blooded. Democrats pay more lip service to social programs that benefit people. But they really don't support programs to help people unless they can money doing it. Same with the Republicans. The reason Trump got elected was, he campaigned on a populist platform that made him look like a maverick. The Republican party hated him and still does. That was appealing to a lot of people and they hoped against hope that he would follow through on his promises. The Democrats hated him because he was a Republican AND because he wound up beating Killary. People voted for him, not because he was conservative but because 1) he promised a lot of things that they desperately wanted like jobs and an end to military interventionism, 2) he wasn't a career politician but, rather, appeared more independent and 3) Killary was even too loathsome for a lot of Democrats, let alone independents, to stomach her. A lot of people merely stayed away from the polls. I fall somewhere in the realm of left-libertariamism (libertarian socialism). I see no problem with a certain amount of socialism. The right wing has always branded civil rights as socialism. Workplace safety laws, child labor laws, labor unions, overtime laws, Social Security, women's rights, racial equality, affordable health care, public education, environmental protection, you name it. If it cuts into the profits of elites and corporations, it's socialism.
I'd like to go back to Eisenhower-era tax policy. I would ban off-shore banking. I'd like to regulate the shit out of large corporations. Corporations are not people and should not have the same constitutional protections. I hate deregulation and privatization. On the other hand I strongly believe in individual liberty as spelled out in the bill of rights.
@Lliam I don't think that's the republicans problem, I think the issue with them is that half are RINO's (republican in name only. Like Mitt Romney, if you look at his policies and voting and how he treats other republicans he is a full on democrat through and through), the other half are spineless cowards. If you look from 1871 to 1993 every civil rights act that was passed was passed by republicans (well except or one in 1991 that limited the ability of minorities to sue on claims of descrimination). That is actually one of my problems if you look republicans have as far as civil rights is concerned have been a bigger supporter of them then democrats ever have but they are such spineless cowards that the second democrats accused them of racism they clam up and sulk in the corner (not to say they haven't done stupid things. Their push for religion in everything annoys me to no end and I think is a big contributer of why we have seen a back lash against them (as in the fourties and fifties they started bible thumping which is not in the spirit of the constitution and America and a lot of people very understandably resented them for it). Also their support for Israel irritates me. I don't support palistine but Israel is the bigger asshole in my opinion based upon the fact that among other things they have commited at least two separate false flag attacks against the US but republicans still support them for some reason.).
@Lliam They also claim to be against gun regulations and what not but they never try to undo any of the laws that were passed. They claim to be against welfare programs (and I personally am as well, I think that they ultimately hurt people because the money ends up going more to the government then the people (though I understand why others do support them and don't begrudge them for that, I just question their efficacy not the intent (which I wish democrats would be more willing to do the other way around)) but then they have also put more tax payer money into it and have made no attempt to get rid of them. I mean how can you claim to be for something then go against it? I think they have been spineless cowards for so long that most people don't know what real republicans are (that's including republicans) because they are so rare.But yeah, most politicians couldn't give a damn about any one else but them and are their for the money (that's also why they make all these sub division groups (Like the EPA or the FDA) and beurocracy because it gives them a scape goat so they don't have to take responsibility for laws passed and thus can keep their cushy jobs (and then when they retire they become highly paid lobbiests). Its a cluster fuck to put it bluntly (also why I think we need term limits for them so they can't use it as an easy paycheck (I mean its the only job that makes 200,000 a year that you don't even need to show up to. What the hell kind of bullshit is that?).
@Lliam I agree, most people voted for trump because he wasn't Hillary, he did have a populace platform but I don't think that is a bad thing (I mean shouldn't the president represent the desires of the populace? Clinton actively stated the middle class was going to be taxed into oblivion and destroyed, at least trump was campaigning for not doing that (even if he failed at least he was going to pretend to appeal to the people (Clinton couldn't even be bothered to do that. Its kind of insulting when a politician of all people is to lazy to even lie about how they are going to screw you over.)). I honestly have no idea what the hell they thought they where going to do with Hillary, no one liked her, they didn't like her as a senator, they didn't like her as the first lady they didn't like her as a person. That was a screw up if I ever seen one.
@Lliam For trump he was elected because obviously Hillary wasn't an option but I think he will get reelected because he has improved the economy (the quarantine not withstanding) and because again, unlike every other republican (maybe its because he is a new Yorker or maybe its because he is egotistical can't say which) he is willing to call out democrats, the media, anyone. For the majority of republican voters, this is a godsend because like I said we had romney who wasn't a republican and we had McCain who was, well not a real republican and a warhawk, and both of which caved the second democrats applied pressure. So him just calling out these people is actually refreshing (other republicans are pissed because they think he isn't "republican enough" but quite frankly he has done more then most republicans have and he isn't a psychotic warmonger like Obama (and while bush got us into two wars I don't think he was a war monger, I think he had daddy issues (trying to prove himself by finishing what bush sr. started (which is absolutely awful but I think a far cry better then Obama's bombing every one into oblivion who wasn't even a threat to us (still don't know why half those bombings even occurred), etc. so I think all of those things will ensure Trump getting reelected (again on top of democrats offering absolutely no alternatives.).
@Lliam I'd say I'm for deregulation, mainly because what we see is when the government gets involved the businesses start to cater to the government not the populace. So like when you see Microsoft, before they where accused of having a monopoly not one dime of money was spent lobbying, after they built an office in Washington DC specifically for that purpose and spend millions a year lobbying and essentially paying off the government which screws over their competitors and ultimately us. I do think that some of the treatment businesses get is ridiculous, they definitely shouldn't be able to be treated like that. For example when they endorse candidates, I think that's absurd, they are not people they shouldn't get a say (unless they can argue that every one they employee endorses a canidate as well otherwise they are speaking for a group without their consent). I want businesses as far away from the government as possible because I don't trust them anymore then I trust government. How to go about it however is a tricky thing and I honestly don't know how you can balance it out. My view is that we need a separation of church and state, but we also need a separation of business and state as well, those are things that should never ever mix (in fact nothing should mix with government, it usually corrupts everything and when you take system that tends to have corruption (like big business), that just increase corruption not reduces it in my opinion).
@Lliam But yeah, its a complicated issue and I really don't know what the best solution is, my view is usually divide the power up to the point where no one is strong enough to fuck everything up (keep every one fighting each other so that they are too exhausted to screw over the rest of us (pretty much why we have so many branches of government every one is suppose to be fighting each other so they can't take over our own lives). Its difficult because again, you can point to corrupt businesses (I also think their are some good ones just like people) but the problem is because they are a group our laws stop applying to them (hell look at the BP oil spill, they had to pay a couple million dollars for all the problems they created, that's what they make in half a minute it did nothing). So I think we need to find a way to hold businesses accountable more then we do now but I don't know if regulation is the way to do it (again, the more you get government involved the more they corrupt everything in my opinion). But I do agree constitution matters and that should be the foundation, individual rights and freedoms are paramount.
That’s right, some people vote for the guy who gets the job done, not on the personality.
Exactly, Trump supports the US constitution and the individual freedoms and responsibilities it stands for instead of some weak minded whiny communist foolishness of wanting a totalitarian state to take care of us like children. They're to stupid to know that totalitarian states don't take care of you, they enslave you.
Right, and they don’t realize that eventually they run out of other people’s money, and that’s when they have to force everything on the people.
@Girther10 That's where the gulags come in , slave labor to keep the failed system afloat.
A Trump hater calling someone triggered? lol That's rich. You pathetic little bitches are all the same.
You know, for me it all comes down to either Trump, or..._______? A democrat. An admitted commmunisr, or an empty shell of a former Vice President who is surely experiencing dementia, and maybe early onset Alzheimer’s disease... now it’s definitely the latter. So, tell me, who in their right mind would NOT vote for Trump?
Example: Try to picture sleepy joe Biden trying to hold daily pressers telling the American people about the different models being used, and changed, and interpreting wha5 these scientists and medical experts and all the rest- every single day?
@Girther10 I see what you say. However - outside of the U. S. 'we' only see just one other American being in charge. Further - don't you miss the topic of the question a little? It's not about Trump.It's about YOU :) Please tell us: what makes you a likeable -and good- Trump-supporting person?
Yup he's included lol
