Angry and afraid Wonder Bread White America have worshiped at many alters the past couple of decades. He's just the most recent.

Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin, The Tea Party, Alex Jones, Ted Cruz, and now Trump to name but a few.

All of them preach the same damn message. It's the government's fault. It's the democrats' fault. It's the immigrants' fault. It's the liberal media's fault. It's those social services fault. It's the minorities' fault. Etc.

Ahhh. Alright, that makes more sense. I agree with that one.

Fox News is almost laughable to be honest. They all look like plastic super models trying to understand politics but failing to do so.

I would happily punch this man right in his face.

I'm reminded of the lyrics to the song The Fletcher Memorial Home off of Floyd's The Final Cut. Just substitute Fox news personalities for the politicians.

And they can appear to themselves every day
on closed circuit t.v.
to make sure they're still real
it's the only connection they feel
"ladies and gentlemen, please welcome reagan and haig
mr. begin and friend mrs. thatcher and paisley
mr. brezhnev and party
the ghost of mccarthy
the memories of nixon
and now adding colour a group of anonymous latin
american meat packing glitterati"
did they expect us to treat them with any respect
they can polish their medals and sharpen their
smiles, and amuse themselves playing games for a while
boom boom, bang bang, lie down you're dead
safe in the permanent gaze of a cold glass eye
with their favourite toys
they'll be good girls and boys
in the fletcher memorial home for colonial
wasters of life and limb
is everyone in?
are you having a nice time?
now the final solution can be applied

All she's been able to find is part time for minimum wage because of her age. And she gets no benefits cause they won't let her work more than 25 hours a week so we're paying almost $500 a month for health insurance that she use to get for free through the company.

I had to accept a 30% salary cut in order to help the company stay afloat to keep our lawsuit against a $6 billion dollar megacorp who destroyed us to save a measly 5% of their costs.

I'm averaging taking between $500 to $700 a month out of our retirement account just to make ends meet.

Our sales to megacorp were about $6 million a year. The 5% savings they got by destroying us amounts to about a .005% of increased profits.

If you don't want to accept that most Trump supporters fall into the categories I listed a few posts back fine. But don't try to pass along any guilt on me.
Well good, you know what it's like to struggle unlike a lot of people from liberal middle class backgrounds. I grew out of a single parent home, had the plant I worked at shut down, indebted myself by putting myself through University, work a high level stressful position, don't own property and I'm still not safe.

The western world has been on the Classical liberal train since the Reagan/Thatcher years, Richard Nixon was more left wing than Bill Clinton and Tony Blair. Its been killing the wages of the working class and they're screaming to get off, and for better or worse, that is why they are flocking to Trump, he's offering them an out, whether it is sincere or not.

What the hell drugs are you on? We recently suffered through 8 years of Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and all of the other war hawks who poured trillions of US taxpayer dollars into completely unnecessary wars, while allowing the big banks to run rampant which resulted in the worst economic crash in over 70 years.

Obama has done his best even though the house GOP leader is quoted as saying on day one of his 1st term that it was the top priority of the Republican party to insure that he'd be a one term president - along with him having to try to govern while 75% of his presidency has been with a GOP led house and senate.

People are flocking to Trump because of their anti-Dem hate and their gullibility to the GOP and Trump's strategy: Promise to make things better while blaming everyone except the White GOP base.

Anyone with half a brain can see through that ****. Unfortunately a large percentage of the US populace is buying his snake oil. It has absolutely nothing to do with your supposed Liberal Train.

Bull$hit, do you even know what classical liberalism is? It's the orthodoxy of limited government, free trade, and the free movement of labour, in other words globalization championed by libertarians like Milton Friedman. Bill Clinton pushed hard for NAFTA, GATT and the Chinese free trade agreements into law despite strong resistance from the labour unions because they knew it would result in the loss of millions of jobs. He stabbed the working class in the back, and the United States now has the biggest trade deficit in it's history. The Clinton Foundation is rotten to the core, they ripped off the Haitian people for billions of dollars, and Hillary used her position as secretary of state to hold pay for play meetings in her bid for the White House. Everything a Democrat should not be. Oh, if only Christoper Hitchens was still alive today!

Choosing between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton is like having to choose between a rotten apple and a rotten orange, but Trump will move the Republican Party further to the left towards Nixon, while Hillary will move the Democrat Party further to the right.

Both Hillary and Trump have the lowest popularity ratings of any Presidential candidate. They're both loathed and will most likely not win a second term.

Trump isn't the real threat. The real threat comes in 4 years when something like a Rubio/Kasich ticket comes along. Once the Republican Party starts to successfully court a large portion of the Hispanic Vote like Bush did, its game over for 8 years.

More blah blah blah from you. You're like a broken ****ing record with this tired logic. Clinton is going to win by a landslide and will serve 8 years easily. Just like Obama did, even though the republicans focused entirely on obstructing him his first 4 years.

The angry Wonder Bread White Americans are slowly dying off and the Asian, Black, Muslim, and Hispanics are making up more and more of the vote with each passing year. ****, even Texas is starting to shift away from red towards blue.

The GOP is completely broken except for a base that loves Jesus, their guns, and hates minorities and social services. Should toss in the greedy rich folks too but even the Koch brothers have avoided Trump like the plague this cycle.

Ok if Clinton wins in 4 a second term in 2020 than you can laugh at me, but don't say I didn't warn you.
