America is and always has been great since I came here in 1957.
It's not perfect but it's the greatest country in the world.

For some people it is great. Do you think it is great for all? We the people?

When Adolph Trump doesn't get the republican nomination watch for him to resurrect the american nazi party and run as an independent - despite his promise not to. Trump is one big lie after another and only appeals to bigots.

Those who so easily toss out the name of Hitler for an analogy directed at just about anyone they disagree with, bigoted or not, show they have little real understanding of that history.

If you want to insult someone, at least show some imagination, and display some grip of reality.

Adolph wants a database of Muslims and special identity cards. Can tattoos be far off? Anyone who thinks he is not bringing out the worst America has to offer is clueless. The parallels are undeniable.

Trump talks crazy, so I guess the far left thinks they should be just as crazy, to level the playing field. Problem is you're seeking the wrong level.

"can tattoos be far off", is quite a stretch for even the nuttiest nut bars.

Just offers more evidence that the neither the far right, nor the far left, is going to do America any good. Both peddling in fear.

When all that matters is wether the is an R or a D attached to your vote, just expect more of what you've got.

No one has ever made themselves great by putting everyone else down; wether it's a bully in a school yard, or a politician during an election.

In the case of the latter, sadly they're not looking for greatness, they're looking to get elected.

Trump talks crazy? Ask the nut jobs that are listening and supporting him. This isn't about a reality show like some think. No, this Adolph isn't after the Jews (yet), but Muslims. In the eyes of the US Constitution those are equal religions as is Christianity. He is after Mexicans. And apparently Black Lives Don't matter to him.

These days he probably wouldn't use tattoos, but rather microchip implants. Same principal, however.

R & D really don't matter. Adolph Trump has been both and neither party wants him.

You have no clue to the genius that is Trump. Trump makes outrageous statements to get free airtime on TV. Remember, Trump is funding his own campaign! Why do you think Trump supporters are not bothered by his comments? We get what he is doing, using the media machine instead of the MSM using him!

As President I could see Trump actually reducing the waste in spending by actually managing and accounting for every penny spent. People do not get rich spending frivolously! If this country was ran like a corporation I believe we would find that there is plenty of money to run this country on because our tax money would not be wasted on ineffective programs.

Trump gets plenty of contributions from clueless bigots who drool over the hate and intolerance he preaches. They fall for his crock - hook, line and sinker. Most of his supporters lack higher education.

He would bankrupt this country in record time and then walk away as he has demonstrated so many times in the past with his companies.

He would be, or at least attempt to be, a fascist dictator, like Hitler was, and would no doubt try to fire Congress, the Supreme Court, and suspend the US Constitution.

It's actually a shame that someone would give Trump, or any other politician, a pass for anything outrageous they might say in the course of a campaign.

You're asking for trouble if you make them electable based on what you think they'd do, while ignoring the things they say they will do.

The problem of course is that's how it's worked for awhile now, and the public has trained politicians to say so many things they don't believe.

I don't post here very often because my opinions are not be well received here, since I am an Immigrant and a Liberal.


I just want to add that Trump is only saying what he thinks people want to hear. Most of the things that he wants to do are not even Constitutional and if they are he can only do what Congress allows him to do.
As far as running a country like a business, you will have a country full of greed and empty of compassion for the poor, the handicapped and the senior citizens.
Also, I don't buy into the politics of hate. I don't quite compare Trump to Hitler but Hitler did start to gain his power by preaching the hate card.

I do not often agree with Kuki but in this case I do . I find it disgusting that a person is allowed to refer to Trump as Hitler continuously .

This is the most correct answer! America has always been great!

Not the hate, doom and gloom prophesied by Adolph.

Like most Americans, I don't like either one of them; but realistically the choice now is only between Trump and Clinton. So do you vote for the one who spouts offensive nonsense, or the one who spouts only lies? The one who got rich by some questionable business dealings, or the one who got rich by trading on her (and her husband's) political access?

I have finally made my decision, but only because I was reminded of a statement I made to some relatives MANY years ago, during another hotly contested Republican primary. At the time I disliked and distrusted Richard Nixon, though that distrust was not common among voters. When someone else implied that obviously I would vote for Nixon, I told him that I would vote for George Wallace instead, even though I deplored what he stood for. My explanation at the time was that were Wallace somehow elected, Congress would more likely be compelled to due its Constitutional duty to restrict his actions; while if Nixon were elected, he could get away with almost anything because he was "one of them".

Now we have another decades-long politician who is being chosen by the Democrats only because they like to applaud their own liberalism in choosing a female. They apparently don't realize that voting FOR someone because of that person's gender is every bit as stupid as voting AGAINST someone for the same reason.
