    He can lobby Congress as president to save steps.

    Fred Trump hired tutors and bodyguards to see Donald through business school, bought his draft deferment and gave him $1,000,000 cash to start off with.
    .
    N.Y. City (for the first time in its history) loaned Donald $400,000,000 to build ‘his’ (?) first building and exempted it from taxation. The bankruptcies soon followed
    .
    These things are in plain sight, a matter of public record, along with the endless flip-flops, betrayals and subsequent tax dodges. None of this matters to Donald’s supporters, but it might repulse at least 51% of us.

    When I graduated from high school in 1962. my husband and I bought a three bedroom two bath house and two pretty good cars within the next three years, and paid for them with a job that he got right out of high school.………..Since that time, the productivity of the American worker has skyrocketed, and we are generally acknowledged to be the best in the world. And, we are producing goods that we can’t afford to buy…………………..
    ……….Most of the value that we are producing is going to the 1%, who use that money to buy politicians who make laws that insure that they keep making most of the money, which they can use to buy more politicians, who will write more laws so they can make more money to buy more politicians and etc etc etc.
    Consequently, most Americans are so angry with the establishment, represented by the two political parties in charge, that they will vote for anyone who promises to destroy them. And, unless the Democrats wake up and nominate their antiestablishment candidate, we are going to have a president Trump.

    Bernie would lose as McGovern lost in 1972. Democrats learned from that. McGovern was a great statesman, but he also lost 49 out of 50 states to Richard Nixon. I don’t want that to happen again, nor do many others. Hillary’s presidency won’t be all that different from Bill’s presidency, which was a fairly good time economically for many of us.

    Yes America lets vote for a WASP businessman (not a good one at that) who’s had multiple affairs at the same time & is currently we’d to wife #3. He’s filed numerous bankruptcies over the years to avoid his debt obligations to his creditors. He also brags about paying NO taxes & truth be told I seriously doubt he even has a billions bucks much less the 10B he claims to have. Jeff Bezos of Amazon whom Trump got in a Twitter spat with is verified to be worth 63B. Now who’s the susscessful businessman ? What an amateur

    “… most Americans are so angry with the establishment, represented by the two political parties in charge, that they will vote for anyone who promises to destroy them. "

    By continuing the binary political system for so long, the establishment has created a self-perpetuating system, which (term limit free at the legislative level) gives the incumbent a tremendous advantage. Our primary system excludes a large portion of the voters, and closed primaries allow extremist candidates to assume office though they represent only a sliver of the population … then, they declare their victory a mandate. Gerrymandering, stringent ID requirements, insufficient time and insufficient number of polling places can gave an advantage to politicians if they choose to use it to make up for the lack of substance in their policies.

    In spite of all this , if the legislators could cooperate and work for the people instead of their archaic ideologies and the corporate lobbyists. The binary system could work. The polarization seems to be a smoke screen as the corporations get the legislation they want (they often write it themselves) and, according to Princeton’s long term study of congress, corporations get 70% of our legislators time no matter which party is the majority.

    There are common goals that could best be attained by superposition rather than opposition. Bill Clinton had a congress that was cooperative and our economy grew … since them polarization has grown. Unless we have a congress that is willing to compromise, we will not make progress. There are too many good ideas that are being suppressed by an ultra polarized congress, media, and public. Unless and until we start respecting views other than our own, there is no presidential candidate that cam fulfill a promise to make things better. At some point, we have to take the responsibility to make our government work for all Americans. We ave been too complacent about the competency of our politicians.

    Looks like the electorate could learn something from Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty.

    Toon points out that Trump is merely the poster boy for the fraud that is the myth the “1%” have all earned their postition with hard work, rather than privilege. That he can’t keep any statement or position straight for over 12 hours, is proof of his real content, no matter how loudly he screams his insults.

    @dtroutma

    Trump doesn’t need to keep his positions straight.
    He hates Obama, Hillary, Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants, minorities. Those are the positions he conveys.


    The rest is just stuff he throws around to get attention.


    Exit polls indicate that Trump voters state the most important reason is his self funded campaign. His campaign is no longer self funded and in fact never was.
    His voters don’t care. So there are other reasons they vote for him.

    It’s one thing to destroy “the system”; it’s another to destroy the country along with it.

    And Bill Clinton dodged the draft . . . a number of billionaires have declared bankruptcy several times. But you know what? I have a lot more respect for someone who tried and failed to start a business, than for someone who solicits bribes all day long—like Hillary Clinton.

    And what has Clinton, or for that matter, the whole lot of Democrats in the White House and Congress, done for the average working person? Not one, single, solitary thing.
