Of course that is and has been Putin's objective - to weaken us by division. And it is also obvious that he is using Americans to help in his task. A perfect example of his success is on display here with terms like "Trump the Chump", "Trump sucks", "anyone agreeing with Trump is a racist, sexist, Nazi, fascist, homophobe, alt-right, etc.", and so many more. And then there are the topics attacking the First Lady, calling the President an Imbecile, Indicting a sitting President, and on and on.

 

You are right - Putin is succeeding. And the election of Trump did help for the reasons above. Had Hillary won, the Reps would have accepted the outcome and all the dissension pointed out above would not have occurred. But, she didn't and the pussyhat brigade immediately got into action as well as the Dem leadership, and the rest of their hate-filled followers. And it only got worse and probably will continue to do so.


This is an interesting argument.  "If we all stop fighting the Russian candidate and just accept our servitude, everything will be wonderful".  The really scary part is that the Republicans see nothing wrong in this argument.

It is a strange to see the Party line being that the President is doing the bidding of Putin whenever he remains faithful to his campaign promises.

 

And THAT is obvious to anyone who is thinking.

And there you have it, a president who thinks with his gut instead of his brain. Russia gets control. Putin wins. 

 

Putin and Trump do have one common goal: They both want the price of oil to go up. Putin wants it for his treasury, Trump for his benefactors. 


Didn't you leave out quite a few very important words from the quote you were supposedly responding to?


I wasn't quoting you, I just reframed the statement to conform to my own opinion. And that's where I'll leave it. Apparently, you're okay with Russia in control.


Sunnovagun - when I saw some of my words as the lead in to your comments I thought you were responding to my words. Silly me.

Iran, Saudi Arabia (Now you know why the 2 leaders greeted each other as they did at the G20), Isreal (Their PM was in Russian Capital not long ago to see Russian President), Syria. Jordan, Egypt will follow. Russia is now the world leader there, and the US goes to the ash can of history. Trump in action.

I agree with everything John258 said above. Trump is a traitor to  the United States of America. The whole reason Putin and Russia worked so hard to make sure that Trump was elected,  was to diminish the United States and gain  world domination. Everything that Trump is doing in the world today has diminished the status of the United States of America. We are no longer the number one world power. Russia has moved into the number one space and that was the entire intention. We are leaving our allies. We are reducing ourselves and our power in NATO. We have a man in office who is compromised. And we will be destroyed if not careful. Someone in power must stand up to this man--Congress maybe?  He must be removed. And hopefully when he is removed either by election or impeachment there will be something left  that we can salvage of our nation.
