Oh please, is that the best you can come up with? Do you really think there is anything in common between Donald Trump and the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler? Looks like the legalized recreational weed is taking its toll in Colorado.

The Trump crowd response that Mr. Blaustein mentions is simply people reacting to something different and refreshing compared to what's been shoved down our throats for the last eight years.

There are a LOT of people who see the similarities in behaviors and circumstances. Those of us who paid attention during history classes find the similarities quite disturbing. They both ran their campaigns based on nationalism and xenophobia. For Hitler it was the Jews, for Trump it's the Muslims and Mexicans. Both inspired and called for violence against their political opposition. Both had the adoration of their followers to the point that serious known flaws were completely overlooked.

This merely reinforces the perception that some have of the similarities. Hitler worked up the crowd like no one else could. It's that very crowd response that makes the scenarios so terrifying.

We are Germany in 1933. Read some history books about how the Nazi's came to power.

Except that Trump has surrounded himself with some very far-right people. In addition, the so-called "alt-right" (meaning White Power and Neo Nazis and their ilk) has, as you well know, fully endorsed Trump as they feel he is finally the one they can vote for.

I'm not at all comfortable with that.

Amazing again the man wasn't sworn in yet. This must really sting to all the butt hurt snowflakes out there. Wow.
Go back to posts right here in RR politics at what was said right after Obama was elected. There's been 8 years of sour grapes from the right wing "butt hurt snowflakes" here. Now it's their turn to listen.

Now sit down, shut up, and listen. The man you've elected is chiseling away at the foundations of our democracy. Even before he's inaugurated. He's called into question our election process, called for violence against his political opponents, threatened his opponent with prison for charges not filed, tried, or convicted, threatened mass deportation.

You can't deny this, these are the things that got him elected in the first place. And these are the things that cause people to compare him to Hitler.

Now, go to the library and get some history books and read. If you comprehend at all what happened in Germany in 1933, I guarantee you won't sleep for a week when your eyes are finally peeled open.

We are a nation of ignorant morons. The man we elected is proof positive.

My firm belief is, a nation of ignorant morons would have elected Clinton. Trump, not as much. Give the guy some time show what he can do, telling us what you think he will do is pretty dumb.

And Clinton would have surrounded herself like Obama with far left people, so there's no difference. You worry about the right like others worry about the left.

In addition, the so-called "alt-right" (meaning White Power and Neo Nazis and their ilk) has, as you well know, fully endorsed Trump as they feel he is finally the one they can vote for.
The Nazis party has supported presidents before, and it changes nothing, life went on and we're still here. I felt the same about Clinton and Senator Byrd, would she have let the KKK change the way she ran things, most likely not, but it didn't look good with him as a mentor. Trump wants nothing to do with the Nazis party.

I'm not at all comfortable with that.
Just like some of us aren't to comfortable with having the far left radical democrats running our country. We had eight years of one, and history should show he was the worst president this county ever had.

People are going to find out that Trump isn't as bad as the press made him out to be, he knows he going to be the president of the US and the world will be watching, I think he'll fit in and do the right thing and put the US back on the right track. Time will tell, and many will be watching, especially the liberal press.

HP old pal, I'm sure hoping you are right.

Unlike a lot of folks on the right during Obama's tenure, I'm accepting that (like him or not) Trump is my president. That doesn't mean that if he f**ks things up I'm going to support him, however. He won the electoral vote, fair and square (so far as I can tell, although he lost the popular vote by at least two million).

As far as "far left radicals", in the Obama administration, I think that's a stretch. Obama is a corporatist. He's not by any definition a socialist, despite claims made by Fox and their ilk. Don't forget that Obama did absolutely zero to penalize the greedy Wall Street executives that caused the crash of 2008. Nothing, no consequences at all.

An example of a "far left radical" for the purposes of this discussion would be perhaps, Bernie or Elizabeth Warren. Obama nor even Clinton fit into any kind of "far left radical" description. Not as I see it, anyway!

Q. What will be the greatest accomplishment of the Obama administration when they move out of the House in January?

A. They successfully helped create the strongest Republican party to date.

I'm not so sure how "strong" they are, really.

They have numbers, yes. Control the House and Senate, yes. However, that could fall apart if the people that voted for Trump aren't happy with him by 2018. They could certainly lose the House and Senate if they feel their lives have not improved or have in fact become worse.

Nothing is etched in stone when it comes to American politics (or any political system, as I'm sure you are well aware!).

Wasn't the real "fault" of Obama.

The Democratic party decided to put the worst presidential candidate in the history of this country as the nominee while cheating out someone who could of won. Then, the Republicans hated her and agreed to come out in mass to defeat her.

Then what happened? The ignorance of the people elected the worst candidate in our history and he was not as bad as the other in the peoples eyes. But the DNC screwed over many people. So in defiance to the DNC, they voted en mass for the other evil. Trump won in states where hatred for HRC runs deep.

So, I would not say anything "strong" was created. I would say the people instead sent a strong message to the DNC.

Now it's funny, the new anti establishment candidate that vowed to drain the swamp is making the swamp bigger instead.

Interesting times.

If that's the strongest Republican Party to date, that's really pretty pathetic:

They barely have a majority in the Senate.

The President Elect is one of the most divisive (within the party, let alone outside) political figures in American history.

Even Republican congressmen are talking about how to block Trump's agendas.

Many party leaders are unable to back their duly elected leader.

The fact that the Republican candidate lost the popular vote by about two million votes and is only winning via Electoral College vote would indicate the LACK of a "mandate" by the public to implement Trump policy. He's a fringe candidate elected via fringe and disenfranchised voters as a protest against conventional Republican candidates.

If that's what you call "strong", then I really don't know what else to say. Your Republican Party is hanging on by some pretty frayed threads.

The Democrats aren't doing any better, but I'm not hearing anyone say how strong they are, either, so there's nothing to comment on.

Carry on, oh Delusionally Optimistic One. :roll:

The Butt hurt you must feel I am sure is excruciating. I have heard it is very painful and they're creams available without prescription. Based on your post here.

No, your Dems are not doing any better. That I can agree with. The rest of it is just whining. Please, stop.

Call it what you will. There's clearly no logic or reason in anything you say here:

And that's just so laughable on so many levels. :p

The Republican party was on the verge of implosion after the convention. Now, Trump will be inaugurated due to vagaries of election law, not popularity. It remains to be seen, but there's a good chance that Trump's win will be more firmly tied to foreign tampering with things like fake Twitter and Facebook accounts. The strongest act performed by the Republican party was getting the head of the FBI to state that he was revisiting the Clinton email investigation, a week before the election, a VIOLATION OF LAW, actually. That's your "strong" Republican Party for you...

My friends and family are, in general, very successful... educated, well read, intelligent, and rational people. Some are Republicans, some are not. A few, like me, have no party affiliation, but otherwise lean away from the "right". None, including any Republicans that I know, voted for Trump. That's none, as in ZERO.

None, including Republicans, are anything other than completely repulsed by the man. I have Republican friends with Clinton stickers on their cars. Really. I guess they know the difference between fake news and real. What's YOUR favorite news outlet, hmmm?

Don't you think it would be interesting to see a breakdown of exactly who voted for the man? How many are actual "believers", vs. the "never Hillary", vs. the "I'm a Republican, dammit", and so on. I'm getting the impression that the number of actual Trump "believers" is frighteningly few. I don't know of ONE in real life. Outside forums like this, they're a bit of an abstraction, at least in the circles I travel in.

Things that make you go Hmmm...

So anyway, it's your right to believe whatever you want. Did you go back 8 years in the RR politics posts and see the level of whining that took place after Obama won? Just go back 4 years if you're feeling lazy. The sniveling was phenomenal. N1RGR and I had debates that drew 50,000 views. Good times...

Only a month and a half left before Der Trump is Der Fuher. You must be sooooo excited and stuff! Heil, oh Delusionally Optimistic One. =)

And no. I won't stop. Not until * I * want to.
