A G.O.P. Majority in New Hampshire Pipes Up: We’re Not for Donald Trump

Who is worse? Probably Trump because psycologists are now coming out and telling us the reason why he would be so dangerous. As much as I personally understand, I'll explain and ask for help from others. 

Trump fits the definition of a psycopath. We all know of psycopaths but most likely few know of corporate psycopaths who rise to the top as has Trump. And we all know that psycopaths won't allow themselves to be ddfeated in their plans. But do we know how one reacts when he/she is defeated? For instance, how would Trump act out when any of his impossible and crazy plans are shown to be impossible?

We also should all know that Trump is an egomaniac. And when Trump's ego is crushed, which it ultimately must be, then how will he act? And if he reacts in a very dangerous manner then will he have enought crazies to back him and follow through?

Will Trump show Russia and Putin who is the boss?

My opinion is that Cruz is much less dangerous.

But it's all surreal and fantasy talk isn't it? Trump has no chance of making it to president does he?

We're witnessing right before our eyes how a 'Hitler' can come to power. Only this one is much worse and is far above Hitler's level of psycopathy.

But as with pre-WW2 Germany, trying to warn people about him will be largely ineffective. Sensationalism, fearmongering, paranoia, and more will be levelled at those who advise caution while it's still possible.

I seriously believe it Josh, based on Trump's performance. I read a psycopathic bent in Trump and I know enought about the mental problem to know that a psycopath won't be denied anything he sets his mind to. That's what psycopaths at the top of the corporate ladder so successful. And dangerous to people that have to take orders from them. 

Trump is a classic! His apprentice show was not an accident, it fulfilled one of his deviations from the norm.

And when he says he will act on foreign policy and fix the problems that are irritations to the US, he means it. And nothing will deny him his objective, not even MAD. 

Do you already know that a psycopath doesn't know how to fear?

It's kind of funny that one of the more rabid Republican candidates is the Canadian.

If it were discovered that Bernie Sanders was actually Canadian, American voters would just smirk and say "that explains so much".

It might be funny but it's also mere coincidence. It in no way has anything to do with his Canadianism, other than if he's from Alberta then he will be more likely to be frothing at the mout rabid.

Trump just held a presser where he single-handedly has blown up the Fox News GOP debate scheduled for Thursday and utterly destroyed a reporter who was trying to hang him on the abortion issue. Trump is a force to be reckoned with and the Democrats better have their act together if they expect to defeat him. Everybody has seriously underesrtimated his abilities as a campaigner.

Michael Moore Mercilessly Ribs Megyn Kelly About Trump Fiasco

http://www.mediaite.com/online/michael-moore-mercilessly-ribs-megyn-kell...

NorthReport

Trump is tapping into something that is not often talked about and that is how much the press is despised by the general public as they all have vested interests to protect and there is no such thing as unbiased journalism.

The thing is Trump is not Republician nor Democrat and that is what many people find appealing about him as the general public does not have much use for political parties either.

Trump is still being terribly underestimated and could possibly end up as President.

Donald Trump’s Fox News Feud May Be Another Sign The GOP Is Failing

Mr. Magoo Mr. Magoo's picture

Only history will tell if this was Trump's hidden ace, or his Achilles' heel, but he's probably the first Republican candidate I can think of who spent almost as much time dismissing "Republican" dogma as "Democrat" dogma. 

I'll never root for him to actually win the Presidency, but let's just say I wouldn't trade him for Ross Perot again, or Ben Carson, or the reanimated cadaver of Ronald Reagan.  It's all kind of crass, and unbecoming, but I can't deny it's kind of interesting to see a viable candidate who's willing to tell both the left and the right what part of their anatomy they can kiss.

The gerrymandered House districts make it nearly impossible for the Democrats to win the House no matter the margin at the top of the ticket.  But a weak showing at the top would make a Democratic takeover of the senate likely.

My money has been on Rubio for a couple of months now. When the dust settles it's almost certainly going to be him and Bush3 to the last man standing. 

And either of those horses in the race are about as bad as it can get for world peace. Thank the dogs for Russia, China, and MAD.

Some little bit of editorializing is nice, and a "tl;dr" is even better -- but I mostly just hover my mouse over the link and look at my status bar.  If it's from "rt.com" or "commondreams.org" or "wsws.org" or "moonbat.dipshit" or similar then I move on.
