    demagogue - a person, especially an orator or political leader, who gains power and popularity by arousing the emotions, passions, and prejudices of the people.

    Yes, probably true. But the question is why are people emotional, passionate, or prejudiced? Is there any logical basis or rationale?

    Some thoughts consistent with poll results - not limited to "rightwing extremism" as the trash article suggests:

    People are tired of those like you who excuse the dishonesty and likely criminal behavior of a Hillary Clinton.

    People are tired of a weak President acting like a doormat and refusing to utter the phrase, "Islamic terrorism".

    People are tired of red lines ignored and caving on inspection requirements with Iran.

    People are tired of this administration trashing our allies and kissing up to adversaries.

    People are tired of much of the media giving cover to Black Lives Matter, and their slogan "Hands up, don't shoot", which was based on a lie.

    People are tired of a corrupt administration giving cover to a corrupt IRS.

    People are tired of members of both parties not solving the immigration problem and not securing the border.

    Or...... if that was too complicated for people to comprehend...

    PEOPLE ARE SICK AND TIRED AND FED UP WITH THE BULLSHIT POLITICIANS DISH OUT.....

    Screw what Salon says.. all they do is run a LEFT WING propaganda douche bottle and enema bag refill service... They are only out there trying to feed the sheeple.

    Do you think it's a friggin coincidence that the three of the four front runners for the GOP nomination ARE NOT CAREER POLITICIANS and the Socialist party was going to try to anoint their beloved queen just because she has a vagina and has accomplished nothing in her fucking life except create a history of scandals and lies.

    Who the fuck's this "we"? - You, Socal and Southbeach? Take a poll asking who people here are most tired of and I guarantee your name will be near the top. Quite an achievement in only 8 months!

    "metta8 = best informative poster on this site" if you want left wing spin and don't care about other or impartial viewpoints if they don't fit your own views.

    BTW - There are a number of guys here who post non-leftwing messages but not as often as the couple you mentioned. So they are here.

    So the only thing the three liberaggots above contested in socalfitness's remarks or mine it that I used the fucking word "we" without the permission of the fucking nit-picking liberaggot word police...

    This is funny because on another thread I just wrote this....

    "Idiot liberaggots will argue for 3 pages on a thread about the proper use of a word used in an article there being 85% more convictions of Union leaders, progressives, socialists and democrats for corruption than conservatives."

    Thanks for being in such a hurry to prove I'm right about it...

    Yes, let's. The most prolific nit-picker on this site has got a taste of his own medicine and the sanctimonious louse doesn't like it.

    metta8 informs on a wide range of subjects, of political and non-political general interest here.

    It's the Right Wingers who repeatedly mostly sing a 1-note political song, like it's all taken off the same sheet of music. How curious!

    metta8 has posted more practical, useful information on RJ than anyone else here. But calling him "leftwing" at every opportunity is sorta like the anti-Hillary chants of "Benghazi".

    Problem is, that tactic might work somewhat with the US general electorate, and especially with the brain-washed fans of Fox News, and with senile Teabaggers. But this is RJ.

    The guys here are a lot smarter than you're assuming, and that approach won't work with most of them. Except for a small Right Wing cadre here for whom logic, facts & truth have no value, most of these RJ guys are not buying any of this Right Wing BS.

    OKAY... the Salon.com septic tank truck has just unloaded 40 cubic yards of shit in the RJ parking lot ...

    That means Queen Bob Pazdoutindaflore (aka Carmine's fat ass alcoholic lying neurotic house boy) has spoken.... All bow and puke.

    Most of the guys on RJ are pretty smart - they've got your number as we have seen over the years.

    As for a small cadre - that applies as much to the left. The number of hard lefties continuously posting is not that large.
