Dorothy Parker --- 9 days ago -

We should crown Trump king and be done with it. We don't need checks and balances, let him rule supreme.

It would be easier than the daily nightmare of pretending we live in a democracy with this man as "president." 

urabunchcats --- 9 days ago -

I agree with DP (man that seems strange!)

The next morning....

A proclamation is issued by King TRUMP, responding to increasing hostilities coming from the Dumbocraps.

King TRUMP hereby orders that all the Dumbocraps are to be deported within the next 30 days to any NON-United States country.

Praise the King!
Long Live King TRUMP!
GOD save our KING! 

Dorothy Parker --- 9 days ago -

One point of view is the not the American way, when Trump is king, this ceases to be America. 

urabunchcats --- 9 days ago -

Really?

I thought in your previous post you wanted TRUMP to be King?
"We should crown Trump king"
Do you no longer want the American way?
Do you want America to stop being America?

Were you joking? No Way!

LMFAO at Libs - Trump will never be impeached and he will never leave.

That's what republicans would love, they crave subjugation...its why most of them believe in a god. They want to be ruled...

Demagoguery is always needed to become leader of the masses. It is ignorant to think otherwise.

I disagree, the combination of tactics has been limited to certain leaders, and Trump is a poster boy for each one. Robert Reich, professor of Public Policy puts it this way,

"Leadership isn?t just the ability to attract followers. Otherwise some of the worst tyrants in history would be considered great leaders. They weren?t leaders; they were demagogues. There?s a difference.

A leader brings out the best in his followers. A demagogue brings out the worst."

Now that his family is in the White House I'm sure he'll be itching to leave as much as possible.

So you admit that the passage of Obamacare was not the American way?

You're coming around.

You keep hoping for it but it's not going to happen. There is no evidence of collusion and no obstruction of justice. Some lawyer friends of mine say a first year law student could win against an obstruction charge based on a sentence starting with..."I hope...."

Reich also thought Bill Clinton was a great leader. What did he accomplish?
Reich's example is fraught with errors. Demagoguery is needed to establish a candidate in any elective process. The only recent president I can think of that didn't need it was Eisenhower. Demagoguery is always accused of by those that disagree, yet those same voters will agree with their own demagogue. Confusing demagoguery with leadership is asinine. Demagoguery gets one elected. Leadership is what one does after being elected.

All excellent points. Nobody should take leadership lessons from Reich.

"For those keeping score, then, contacts with Russia have cost Trump a campaign chair (Manafort), a foreign-policy adviser (Page), and a national security adviser (Flynn), while also sidelining the attorney general from the FBI?s investigation."

If you don't like him you can go through the checklist on Wikipedia, or check with another more reliable source. There are many professors who study this.

Unfortunately another hallmark of demogoguery is violence. And we saw that yesterday. I have never accused another leader of being a demagogue, or felt so passionately, that the person in charge has fostered hostility and division.

Don't confuse my dislike of what I see in his leadership as a reaction to an election loss. It's not. I would love to see him go and have Pence in office.

My issue is not with the Republican agenda, it is Trump.

I agree. At least we'd have stability with Pence but on the other hand, things are at a standstill right now. If Frump stays in office, nothing will get accomplished. With Pence Dog knows what this nation will become.

The question I have for you....so what? Who cares? Trump didn't tell Flynn to lie to the VP. He did and he paid the price. If you want to talk about collusion with the Russians let's talk about HRC and all the money she took from the Russians and all the things she did for the Russians. Since we are investigating the Russians we should investigate everyone, such as HRC.

You just contradicted yourself. And violence is rare.

Not aure about the contradiction---

From Wikipedia:
Violence and physical intimidation

Demagogues have often encouraged their supporters to violently intimidate opponents, both to solidify loyalty among their supporters and to discourage or physically prevent people from speaking out or voting against them. "Pitchfork Ben" Tillman was repeatedly re-elected to the U.S. Senate largely through violence and intimidation. He spoke in support of lynch mobs, and he disenfranchised most black voters with the South Carolina constitution of 1895. Hitler wrote in Mein Kampf that physical intimidation was an effective way to move the masses. Hitler intentionally provoked hecklers at his rallies so that his supporters would become enraged by their remarks and assault them

Seriously Felicia, ease up with the Hitler Rhetoric, some moron might actually believe you and hurt someone.

True. It may be time to take a step back, chill and watch what happens.

So you have 2 examples? Hardly a hallmark in 40,000 years of human history. Wikipedia itself warns of not using their articles as any kind of evidence.

Like rare deadly cancer, demagogues don't seem to come up frequently, but when they do, destruction occurs. It was a Wiki page, not a comprehensive analysis. And demagogues can be traced to ancient Greece. Wikipedia is not a great source, but it is a vetted source. Let me upsource this and get back with ya. It's fair and right to call me out on C- sources.

But you won't. You'll continue on with the fake news and anti-Trump posting.

Why are they all quitting if there is nothing to hide and this is a witch hunt?

Look, I liked Trump on the Apprentice. His arrogance was entertaining and his no nonsense, my way or the highway approach seemed like an efficient way to get rid of people vying for a job. But, that was a T.V. show.

This is about inappropriate and provocative statements, lying, and purposely
garbling conversation to the American public. It's about being out of touch and vacationing and golfing excessively and handing a 20 million dollar bill to us to pay. You talk about all the poor people and immigrants sucking of the teet of America and then take a big, long, unnecessary drink yourself. It smacks of inauthenticity.

The "but XXXX else did it" doesn't hold water. If you don't like it, then call it out, and stop making excuses. It's not ok. It's a talking point we can agree on.
