 Comment RE: ..come in and change government.. exactly what Trump is doing-- as he very quickly takes us from a democracy to an authoritarian state. 

Knowing The implications of what we are writing? ( and doing)-- protecting America -- it's poor, it's weak, it's old from a insane control hungry nut job who wants nothing more than to create a military state, further enrich the wealthy--all at the expense of the little guy. 

With regard to Mr. Obama-- were you happy with the total state of economic ruin our country was in at the beginning of his administration, or are you just unwilling to admit America was in deep economic trouble because this happened under a Republican administration? Or did did you just really hate that he brought this country back from the brink?

 

Gee, I miss having a real President!!

   Donald supporter DISRACTION continues.     Had this particular type of blogger had actually read the article, perhaps they could have added to the actual conversation - but nope, they wander away mumbling nonsense.   

 

    Hint:  this is about MEDIA:

A very interesting approach. When a President wants to "fundamentally change America" the other supposedly equal parts of government either go along or he is allowed to become a "one man rule" dictator.

 

I often wonder if those of the left consider the implications of what they are writing.

hey alfredpacker--Just read the first article--doesn't the rhetoric from the right it discusses sound extremely familiar?  Seems to me, I've heard many of the very words and phrases noted in the article by some righties right here in this forum-over and over and over again--no matter what evidence, by a multitude of sources is given them.

And, guess it's no surprise--article talks about rag Breitbart as what these naive people pin their hats on. Now the right will come up with some spin to explain this--"FAKE NEWS," or some other worn out ridiculous excuse. 

Good article--very true--very sad--and seen very blantantly here.


Republican's/Conservative's cognitive dissonance will not allow them to actually reason logically, effectively and consistently for a long enough period of time to avoid having the equivalent of a "trumpish" temper tantrum and dismissively reject everything associated with it.
