We do not and cannot support trump. What we must do is to pay close attention to what he is up to. We cannot let up for a moment or let him divert our attention. He creates chaos and confusion to provide a smokescreen for his criminal actions... but he is predictable, watch close and speak up...

we cannot let him get away with his illegal actions. 

Just ask ourselves, do we want a dictator to run our lives?

Trump has announced he plans to cut payroll taxes and the capital gains taxes all on his own authority.  Deficit Donald strikes again. 

 

How can you support this moron (as Rex Tillerson called him)?

It will not be acknowledged as such as long as he is president. Afterwards perhaps it will be called The Great American Financial Tragedy.

Having observed Wall Street's reaction to the Twit's Tweets, I say we go back to the much more descriptive term and call the tRump disaster the Great Panic of 2019.

 

Folks should also know the Great Depression was caused by cutting the top Marginal Rate from 68% to 25% and deregulation of banks and stock trading. Not a single factory was blown up, not a single mine flooded and not a single train derailed - it was 100% FINANCIAL, and the finances were controlled by REPUBLICANS. Those able to connect dots will notice this is EXACTLY how Republicans caused the jrbush Great Recession.

Yep ............ I am right proud to be a Patriotic Progressive.

And speaking of history . . . guess R's have forgotten all bout TR the progressive president. He wanted corporations to do well, but not at the expense of everything else. He moved to check them instead. And maybe they should recall the Square Deal: Control of Corporations, Consumer Protections, and Conservation of Natural Resources. I think R's resent TR to this day! D's must love him because they certainly champion those policies.

 

I think some R's need to spend a bit more time reading their American History to learn about America. Then read about Stalin of you're interested in Russia. You might be able to draw comparisons with Stalin and Putin and see how similar they actually are. Putin may not say much, but I suspect Stalin is one of his heroes. (There are protests in the streets of Russia because they fear that very thing.)

 

Given the current state of the R-party (now Trumpublicans), it's a small wonder that TR hasn't come completely out of his grave!

Just some quick info for all. Stalin was a Dictator. He took the SU from a Communist style Govt. to a Dictatorship. You can create a Dictatorship from either right or left. Trump is creating one for the USA from the right. In all reality both Trump and Stalin are the same. They want dictatorships. Stalin got his, but we still have a chance to stop the Trump full dictatorship in 2020. Do not vote for anyone with a R behind their name.
