    U.S. Republican front-runner Donald Trump expressed confidence on Saturday that he could push back attempts by his rivals to knock him off his top perch, saying he could stand in New York's Fifth Avenue "and shoot somebody" and not lose voters

    To be fair, it's probably true. Heck, he'd likely gain votes.

    Which? Making the statement, or the truth behind it (or both)?

    Sadly, I can see that (either or both) actually being a thing. Unfortunately, you probably won't get credit for discovering it. ;)

    Looks like Republican Senator Graham was correct when he called Trump "unhinged". We may be facing a crisis in US politics here. What happens when a madman is a strong contender for the White House?

    I'm not sure we've ever faced this before. Perhaps the end result of years of extremist Right Wing talk radio and TV programs. And if Trump does make it to the General Election, and loses, will we have an armed rebellion?

    My thoughts: Even on Trump's current polling (30-35%), 65-70 percent of Republican voters don't much care for him (to say the least). If he does get the nomination, although most of the rest of the GOP will probably get behind him, they aren't going to be that disappointed to see him lose, certainly not to the extent of taking up arms.

    The real nightmare scenario:
    Clinton loses the nomination or has to step down over the email affair. Sanders is the nominee. Bloomberg runs as an independent (which splits the liberal vote) and Trump gets elected.

    Careful with words, he picked his pals on New York's Fifth Avenue to 'shoot up', might as well say Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills. It just doesn't happen there, yet, but he has planted the seeds now, creating and inciting those domestic terrorists, his followers. icon_rolleyes.gif


    Fifth Avenue
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fifth_Avenue

    Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare going through the borough of Manhattan in New York City, United States. It stretches from West 143rd Street in Harlem to Washington Square North at Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village. It is considered among the most expensive and best shopping streets in the world

    I have never felt so sorry for the wonderful people of the United States... It is truly a sad and pathetic world when we allow such a corrupt individual to poison and destroy such a glorious Nation. He is truly the face of Shame in a land that stands for freedom, love and unity!

    I said "...years of extremist Right Wing talk radio...", long before this year's election cycle, before Trump declared his candidacy. Right Wing commentators have been conditioning many in the public with wild, irresponsible fear mongering and hatred, and now Trump comes along and has been able to tap into that. Look at who the Trump supporters are in Ex-Mil8's charts above - very similar to the demographics of conservative talk radio audiences.

    Talk radio cultivated and grew that audience, now Trump is reaping the rewards, whether or not the Right Wing commentators want it that way. When you create a monster you cannot always predict and guarantee how it will behave.

    The Republican Party establishment learned that when they made their unholy alliance with Christian Fundamentalists to win elections. Problem is, the Fundamentalists have effectively won much of the Republican Party. And then that other ill-thought creation, the Teabaggers, have taken another chunk from the Party establishment.

    And so it is with Trump - extremist Right Wing media commentators were looked upon by the Party as allies advancing their political agenda through voter indoctrination. Instead it's produced Trump, who's poised to take control of the Republican Party, as it's Presidential Candidate and de facto leader.

    His only real opponent now (Cruz) is (understandably) reviled by most of the GOP establishment. Those who might be considered more palatable (Rubio, Bush, even Kasich or Christie) seem to have formed a circular firing squad and are busy spraying each other with gunfire.

    It's worth remembering that, even polling at 30-35 percent among Republican voters, Trump's core support comes from only 8-10 percent of all American voters (just a little higher than the proportion of people who think the moon landing were faked). He has just been very good at exploiting a fracturing GOP and rabble rousing its lunatic fringe (the Trump trash).

    You and I can be thankful we're spectators on the outside looking in.

    robbaker saidThe trump will be our new president and the good old days shall return when gays kept their private lives behind them closed doors and in the closet and not being all out and loud with all their propaganda and narcissistic destructive party man/boy hollyweird ways


    Hmm. Does that mean, in the unlikely event he becomes your next POTUS, you'll no longer be bearing your unsightly ass on a public internet site? Every cloud...

    You're also seeing through a glass, fuzzily and distantly. Don't cry for us, Britannia; dry your own eyes before they're put behind a burkha.

    As for never facing this before, recall the failed McGovern and Mondale candidacies. What a mess either of those would have made had they made it to the WH! Still, it's hard to see either of them being any worse than Obama, especially on foreign policy. And, at least they were committed to the rule of law, even if they would have used it to further their leftist goals.

    Do you think our news comes via Pony Express and packet ship, with a three-week lag? Go on, amaze us and tell us how you manage to see what's happening in DC from San Diego.

    This scenario is troubling so no wonder the GOP is clamoring for it knowing the weaknesses of all their candidates.

    Perhaps also:

    1. People are sick and tired of politicians who can't say Islamic terrorism for fear of offending the innocent ones.

    2. People are sick and tired of the political correctness spewed by the left.

    3. People are sick and tired of lame and now ineffective tactics of questioning motives of others and calling them racists, and more recently, fascists.

    4. People are sick and tired of politicians who want to keep the doors open to people who can't be vetted (especially Muslims from countries influenced by ISIS and Al Qaeda) because they are afraid of offending people.

    Could go on and on and on.

    Cavil, quibble; deflect and diddle. There's a world of difference between reading about a place and actually living in it and feeling its pulse on a daily basis. Especially every April 15, when our federal tax bills come due. And, we've given up our stagecoaches here, too.
