Why US voters vote for Trump
US voters vote for Trump because Trump loves Putin and Putin and Trump are dictators till the 2020 election. If Trump gets re-elected this country and our democracy will be 100% destroyed.
Trump now controls the Department of Justice. He defies any kind of Executive Oversight so our system of checks and balances are totally destroyed. (JUST LIKE PUTIN)
Trump blocks any kind of laws that protect our elections by totally and 100% ignores the evidence compiled by our Intelligence community. He believes Putin he made that very clear.
He now controls the State Department department defense department and immigration laws are totally ignored, and blocks every attempt from his cabinet and past and present administration officials from testifying and telling his staff not to testify.
Muellar investigation totally and 100% distorted and his base buys into his lies and distortions as to what’s in the Muellar report. Because Trump supporters refuse to read the report. It’s not just the Muellar summary these people do not want any of the evidentiary evidence from becoming public.
So Trump and his supporters are fine with the president being above the law. (JUST LIKE PUTIN)
So why do these people support Trump because Trump is a known racist and his 100% support of the KKK, White Supremacist
And White nationalist. Trump wants an all white society (JUST LIKE PUTIN)
Trump has blocked and defied any attempts by congress to investigate him for Emoluments clauses because Trumps only interest is obtaining great wealth at the expenses of the American people. (JUST LIKE PUTIN THE RICHEST PERSON IN THE WORLD AND PUTIN HAS NEVER HELD A JOB OTHER THAN HIS POLITICAL JOBS)
So these people support Trump because there so deep rooted in racism there can be no other answer.
Our democracy and rule of law is on trial in the 2020 election. Don’t let these racist people control this election. Don’t let Fox News use Russian propaganda. Stop spreading conspiracy theories that originate in the Kremlin
Donald Trump and his crime family are garbage and they need to be thrown out in the Dump where these people belong.
Why do people support Trump
Trade war, Tariffs are creating inflation, Trade deficit hit an all time high in American history, ($861 Billion) great negotiator Mr. Trump
Let’s see now we are spending billions on a carrier force to intimidate Iran for a nuclear deal Iran is living up to there agreement.
But Trump ignores our intel agencies, the IAEA reports that say Iran is complying with the agreement, the 8 countries that signed the agreement say there inspectors say Iran is living up to there agreement. So if the IAEA the other countries and our intel agencies all agree where is Trump getting his information.
Three minutes and walks out on a meeting on infrastructure what a child.
The deficit is exploding
The budget already $1.3 trillion in the red this year.
The stock market is crashing
Trump Quote as he has a childish fit I don’t Do coverups then why are you blocking subpoenas, why are you refusing request for documents. What are you hiding Mr. Trump. So like a child after 3 minutes with a infrastructure meeting he has a hissy fit and walks out.
Trump promise to build a 2,000 mile wall how come he only built 1.7 miles.
Trump promised to address the opioid addiction why is the situation getting worse.
Trump promised to fix the trade deficit why is our nation trade deficit at an all time high of $868 Billion.
Trump promised to address cost of prescription medication why are we averaging .3% per month increase.
Trump promised healthcare for all at an affordable cost. Nope hasn’t done it.
Trump promised he will remove troops from the Middle East. Nope hasn’t done and now he has a carrier force on its way to the Middle East.
Trump promised he would release his tax returns nope hasn’t done it.
Well I guess I could go on and on but today when Trump quoted stop investigation or I stop legislating well I guess we have another government shutdown. This is exactly how a child acts.
Can you imagine if Obama had ever said that while republicans were creating all those phony scandals I will stop legislating if you don’t stop investigating oh nooooo sorry guys the republicans blocked all legislation during Obama’s last 6 years. So if republicans don’t get what they want hold America hostage.
Democrats And Rule Of Law
Democrats keep harping on the "Rule of Law". Here are just three examples to show their hypocrisy.
1. The rule of law says innocent until proven guilty while Democrats believe in guilt by accusation.
2. The rule of law says first you have a crime and then you search for the perpetrator. Democrats believe that first you have someone you want to "get" and the you launch as many investigations, witch hunts, and fishing expeditions as possible in a search for something, anything to pin on that person.
3. The rule of law says coming into this country illegally is a crime, but Democrats want to give illegals sanctuary and turn them into their voters.
Democrats. Please no more hypocritical posts about your concern for the rule of law.
Is America ready for openly gay President???
Mayor Pete is getting momentum .....Do you think we are ready for gay President and his First Husband in the White House???....Please be respectful with your answers...
AOC Electorates "never saw American prosperity"
Attributed to Alyssa Ahlgren
I’m sitting in a small coffee shop near Nokomis trying to think of what to write about. I scroll through my newsfeed on my phone looking at the latest headlines of Democratic candidates calling for policies to “fix” the so-called injustices of capitalism. I put my phone down and continue to look around. I see people talking freely, working on their MacBook’s, ordering food they get in an instant, seeing cars go by outside, and it dawned on me. We live in the most privileged time in the most prosperous nation and we’ve become completely blind to it. Vehicles, food, technology, freedom to associate with whom we choose. These things are so ingrained in our American way of life we don’t give them a second thought. We are so well off here in the United States that our poverty line begins 31 times above the global average. Thirty. One. Times. Virtually no one in the United States is considered poor by global standards. Yet, in a time where we can order a product off Amazon with one click and have it at our doorstep the next day, we are unappreciative, unsatisfied, and ungrateful.
Our unappreciation is evident as the popularity of socialist policies among my generation continues to grow. Democratic Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recently said to Newsweek talking about the millennial generation, “An entire generation, which is now becoming one of the largest electorates in America, came of age and never saw American prosperity.”
Never saw American prosperity. Let that sink in. When I first read that statement, I thought to myself, that was quite literally the most entitled and factually illiterate thing I’ve ever heard in my 26 years on this earth. Now, I’m not attributing Miss Ocasio-Cortez’s words to outright dishonesty. I do think she whole-heartedly believes the words she said to be true. Many young people agree with her, which is entirely misguided. My generation is being indoctrinated by a mainstream narrative to actually believe we have never seen prosperity. I know this first hand, I went to college, let’s just say I didn’t have the popular opinion, but I digress.
Let me lay down some universal truths really quick. The United States of America has lifted more people out of abject poverty, spread more freedom and democracy, and has created more innovation in technology and medicine than any other nation in human history. Not only that but our citizenry continually breaks world records with charitable donations, the rags to riches story is not only possible in America but not uncommon, we have the strongest purchasing power on earth, and we encompass 25% of the world’s GDP. The list goes on. However, these universal truths don’t matter. We are told that income inequality is an existential crisis (even though this is not an indicator of prosperity, some of the poorest countries in the world have low-income inequality), we are told that we are oppressed by capitalism (even though it’s brought about more freedom and wealth to the most people than any other system in world history), we are told that the only way we will acquire the benefits of true prosperity is through socialism and centralization of federal power (even though history has proven time and again this only brings tyranny and suffering).
Why then, with all of the overwhelming evidence around us, evidence that I can even see sitting at a coffee shop, do we not view this as prosperity? We have people who are dying to get into our country. People around the world destitute and truly impoverished. Yet, we have a young generation convinced they’ve never seen prosperity, and as a result, elect politicians dead set on taking steps towards abolishing capitalism. Why? The answer is this, my generation has ONLY seen prosperity. We have no contrast. We didn’t live in the great depression, or live through two world wars, or see the rise and fall of socialism and communism. We don’t know what it’s like to live without the internet, without cars, without smartphones. We don’t have a lack of prosperity problem. We have an entitlement problem, an ungratefulness problem, and it’s spreading like a plague.
With the current political climate giving rise to the misguided idea of a socialist utopia, will we see the light? Or will we have to lose it all to realize that what we have now is true prosperity? Destroying the free market will undo what millions of people have died to achieve.
My generation is becoming the largest voting bloc in the country. We have an opportunity to continue to propel us forward with the gifts capitalism and democracy has given us. The other option is that we can fall into the trap of entitlement and relapse into restrictive socialist destitution. The choice doesn’t seem too hard, does it?
The personification of Evil
I would like to remind my christians friends that the devil exists!
The devil exists and he is among us.
Satan will not say who he is of course, however his actions will not accompany his deceiving words.
Because the Demon lives out of his “LIES”. He is a liar!
He is well spoken and people will like him, “he will not be the obvious hard or screaming type of person” as Mr Trump is!
He speaks softly and will offer you the World!
“Satan says, "All these things I will give you if you fall down and do an act of worship to me." Jesus replies "Get away, Satan!”
People follow the deceptions of Satan, they fall so easy to the lies and offerings..
Because he offers you the World!
But. how can you see he is the devil?
Because everything he offers is against the “good” however being the “wrong” “the inmoral” “the evil”, he still will put it as the “good for you” for the people.
Abortion happens and it is understandable in many cases how difficult situation or decision for some women is, however to give a choice of killing a baby and presented as “good for women” and then, attack good people that wanted to help or give them another choice, it is evil at the worst!
I saw clearly “the personification of evil” in one of the candidates for the democratic Party,
Mr. Pete Buttigieg is!
When Buttigieg lied about Mr. Pence who is a real christian!
Attacking him, calling him an enemy who said bad things about him! however the true being all the opposite of what he said!
On the contrary, Mr. Pence only praise him and never said anything bad.
Then, Mr. Pete Buttigieg showed me who he really is!
A person who lies the way he did, the way he does, and smile and presented himself so convincing to most people, can not be no other than the devil himself!
So, remember my friends, Lucifer exists and is among us, he will offer “free stuffs” and will present “bad things as good” and will speak in a convinced manner and many people will fall to evil!
So, the democratic Party will not always presented itself as convincing, however it seems like they are representing the “evil ways of the Devil”
And, I should say it again,
The personification of Lucifer is Mr. Pete Buttigieg.
The badness of trump
from quara....an opinion like mine..
Trump was that bad before he was President
He was that bad before he was on television.
He was that bad before he sold steaks.
Before Melania and before his kids.
Before almost anything, for his whole life.
Trump has pretty much been human garbage since apparently at least his time at college. And yes, he will die as human garbage and there’s really nothing he can do in this life at this point to repair the fact.
What, pray tell, is there about Donald Trump that is good? Is it how he managed his father’s slums, or maybe how he lied his way out of military service in Vietnam? Is it how he hung out with mob lawyers? Stepped up and cut his siblings out of his father’s fortune? Is it how he refused to help his brother the drug addict, then also refused to aid that brother’s widow? Is it his many, many affairs while married? Is it how he “grabs women by the pussy,” then forces them to kiss him, “because they won’t do anything about it?” Mocking the disabled? Attacking decorated military veterans for their service? Pardoning war criminals? All the “Very Best People” - about half of them indicted for crimes or already going to prison?
Tell me, how does anyone perceive Trump as good?
No, don’t tell me how bad Hillary is or how bad Obama was. I don’t care.
Republicans had other people I would disagree but not regard as antithetical to basic components of humanity and decency and they passed. Instead, they voted for Trump. So really, it’s not just that Trump is bad, it’s that you’re all complicit that voted for him. He’s human garbage, and you’re eating him up. So sure, I guess it’s not so bad… if you’re a terrible human being. But I’m not. I’m not the nicest or best person I know or can conceive of, but I’m better than you folks that voted for Trump. 100%.
I'm Told It's Happening!!!
Is it time to eliminate Checks and balances.
As we all know Trump supporters enjoy saying Congressional Oversight is not in the constitution. But what these people ignore is the term checks And balances so in typical fashion these people play with words.
So just one question to all Americans do you believe the President should be allowed to do anything he wants and to go unchecked including preventing all his cabinet officials from testifying under oath.
