Well, Slatts, it looks as if you've really opened up a can of worms! I'm not one to begrudge someone having an opinion different from mine and, in almost all cases, I'm eager to debate him/her on those points, as long as he/she is willing to debate on merit and without ad hominem attacks or just being nasty. However, this piece was obviously not offered in that vein, as it begins with negative and derogatory comments and continues with them throughout. It sounds as if he/she is talking down to a three year old and not allowing for the possibility that the Trump supporter might actually be a well-educated, well-read person, capable of discernment and good judgment. Sounds like my sister-in-law who told me she was married to a fake for 40 years and she knew how to recognize a fake.(Trump, that is) Now there's a really logical bit of reasoning for you. Anyway, I think that most of us are solid enough in our convictions that disagreements, especially of the kind in discussion, are not going to upset us too much. Good to hear from you again. Bernie

Always good to hear from you, Bernie. The article/piece was indeed harsh, but, included in my opening comments was a nod to the many good people on OPP that I've come to know and respect...in spite of any differences we may have in our views of President Trump. I didn't/don't consider those comments as negative or derogatory.

BTW, you are included in that group.

The below is an opinion/viewpoint posted on the internet. As it concerns our president, I know it flies in the face of many good people I have come to know and respect on OPP. Yet, I admit to agreeing with much, if not most, of what the writer has to say. I also accept that those same good people will question this evaluation of the man just as I often question theirs.

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

When it comes to the divisiveness of today's politics, I am beginning to think that the Russians that spent so much money and effort to swing the election to put this fox ( aka Trump) in the hen-house…must have spent a goodly amount of money on a roomful of social psychologists also.

They want Trump to call American laws that have stood for 250 years…unlawful…. and he has brought that idea into question many times.

They know he is un-educated, so he will know nothing of American or global history, laws or processes. As a classic, classless blowhard, he will loudly deride what he does not understand. He has done just that with every legitimate American institution that we have trusted since 1776.

They expect Trump to create divisiveness in the people by using politics as a wedge. Again, Trump plays right into their efforts by telling lies to a certain sector of the American populace who can identify with his lies and in turn becomes a cult following. Those that remember the Jones cult in Guyana will identify with what Trump is doing. His lies are so believable to these poor people, there is no other truth but Trump.
They know Trump can talk a line of BS and outright lies that sounds so very convincing. They know he has spent a lifetime conning everyone possible in business and life. No one will know what to expect him to start blabbering on or lying about next which will sow never-ending chaos. So it has come to pass.

That he is so self-serving and greed-driven this will conflict with what we expect of a fair president and that this will cause very questionable behavior on his and his major republican supporter's part.

They know that a segment of the Republican Party, driven by the same greed as Trump's, will join him, defend him and push him further with whispers in his ear. They will use him as a malleable chump to destruct parts of our laws and land so they can put their fingers in the biggest jackpot ever offered to them, the taxpayers of America.

They could not have chosen a better person of the job of taking American values apart, denying the freedoms we have enjoyed since the Bill of Rights was signed or to do a good job of backstabbing the very people that he claims to work for. Trump has spent a good portion of his presidency working with his political and financial backers dismantling the law and economic structure of our land so that they can reap the economic benefits of free tax money. It's all there in black and white cross-indexable print.

His ego is so powerful, his empathy so lacking, that he feels nothing as he hugs the American flag one moment to show his supporters that he loves the land, then sits down and signs an executive order that rolls back a regulation that will poison thousands of his own people the very next moment. (the dumping of toxins into the waterways rollback, etc.)

He will stand in front of thousands of his supporters, talk (lie) for an hour about how (bigly) America will be under his direction. A virtual sea of red MAGA hats will cheer him on, the adulation washed over him as a wave of ‘we love you Trump’, ‘ you're our god because you care about us little people’ and he will exhort them to ‘be patriots’ and ‘be his people’. He and his twisted egotism feeds off these poor folks grand dreams and expectations. He plays them like the proverbial fiddle. The very next day, he signs a budget that was a direct attack on those very same people that cheered him on, voted for him, thinks of him as a god among men. He and his helpers signed a proposal that would take huge amounts of food from the mouths of his own support base , their children, their parents. He signed that proposal that would take away many needed schoolteacher and after-school programs, indeed the whole public education system and put it directly into the hands of his friends in the private education sector. They would not even be able to afford to go to school. They would remain ignorant, which is right where he and his republican backers want them.

Trump's people (seem to) have no idea, they don’t even seem to care.

That is how bad Trump can eat souls like some kid eats candy.

If there is one thing about America today that can truly be called fake, it is Donald Trump.

Good evening Slatten...

This article was a less than pleasant read... I must admit to feeling somewhat insulted by how the author portrayed me... I do not consider myself poor, ignorant, nor worshipful of Trump... But he does have my support...

It appears that the author is attempting to attribute all of Trump's actions to nefarious motives, while we supporters moronically turn a blind eye...

I found this line particularly disturbing, "That is how bad Trump can eat souls like some kid eats candy."... This is going a step too far... In my opinion...

While I usually enjoy your threads (food for thought ) this author is completely biased to a point where I find myself wishing to disagree simply out of dislike for the author...

I am going to get ready for work now... Will read it again after I have had some time to wake up (coffee )... But for the moment I am firmly in agreement with Bernie...

Hope you are well...

Your friend, Kyle

Kyle, I'm never at ease with disappointing a friend. But, as posted earlier...I find myself in much, yet not total, agreement with the author. While recognizing that many view him favorably, I see President Trump as an unfortunate stain on the legacy of the office.

I couldn't decide whether to go with dignity, tradition or legacy of the office. Maybe I need a break.

Maybe you do because in my opinion, several, or more of our past Presidents have fouled all three of those words regarding the office.

Trump is just the whipping boy of the day, and honestly, taking more whipping than any in my lifetime over made up allegations, and theatrics.

Our National government isn't a government anymore. Its a blue jersey, red jersey shitshow.

Frankly, i'm embarrassed.

Just another common leftist sore loser..."eats at ones soul" amusement article!

Donald Trump is fighting for the socially ignorant too.

People who deny that the President is fighting against a international force, who greatly desire our sovereignty null and void, are willing participants in their own doom.

These people don't understand that the first and second amendment are being undermined by a Globalist Army.

On a recent progressive news show, a leftist reporter accidentally defended our right to bear arms..he said that, "if the Venezuelan people weren't without firearms, they could defend democracy" not verbatim, but to the exact effect.

We have millions of people who cry "Putin, Putin" because of villainous people who hate and sold out the United States and its foundation for Sovereignty and Freedom.

All of the radical leftist indoctrinated, cannot see our ruin on the horizon, if the President isn't successful.

Hillary/Obama, and a "Few" elite Intelligence Officials are still attempting a soft Coup even after being exposed.

The left has mostly created their own imaginary Pandora's box about our President of the United States; the honorable Donald J Trump.

Our future Sovereignty is the ultimate to our actual future.

No matter what a leftist believes about the President, they better understand that our nation going the way of Venezuela, is in no way just conjecture.

did you know that the man trump is backing in Venezuela is a socialist democrat..

And I would never confuse the author's words with yours... I have always found that you are respectful and courteous of the views of others(as you were at the beginning of this thread)...

If I may ask a question...
Do you agree with the wording of the article?

I can see some of the points the author is attempting to make... But I disagree strongly with his choice of words...

Regarding his words, no, I did/do not altogether agree. Yet, to the gist of his thoughts...yes, I do. But, as I told Smedley earlier, it was a cut 'n paste and I chose to stay true to the author's original writing. Perhaps I was just being lazy and/or feeling unusually contentious.

slatted, it’s insulting to Trump voters the way you and others call them stupid for voting for him. Look at the facts. The economy hasn’t been this good in your lifetime. Why does that make him such a bad guy? And don’t say the economy isn’t working for everyone, because it is, and the tax cuts are working for everyone, not just the wealthy, which is the most over used example the democrats use.

He knows what he’s doing, but he’s not playing by their rules, and it’s driving them crazy.
