    I wasn't talking about other nations' calculations, but they're right that the American people can't be trusted not to elect someone like trump. The US has lost even its own ability to have a good democracy, much less to be the world's leader for good democracy. You and I, and most Americans, I think, are wanting to improve that.

    In a generation or two, things might change on that front. Our main hope is that remaining economic/military power will keep others generally in line. But those allied out of fear are far less trustworthy than those allied out of trust and respect.
    Quite right, and that's a big part of what 'absolute power wanting to corrupt absolutely' means - as the US has gotten enormously militarily powerful, there's a huge temptation not to respect others' free choice but to try to force their 'loyalty'. Who care if it's consensual and based on justice, as long as we get their money - basically the plutocrats' view of the American people.

    Notice how Trump supporters don't post on threads where Trump is exposed as a pathological liar. They ignore this stuff and call us Trump haters.

    No rational person can support this pathological liar.

    I was just about to ask where Trump's loyal cadre of defenders is. Fletch should be here telling us that we're all behaving like children. Trix should be calling us liars. Mycroft should be telling us it's all a plot and we're dismissed. Assorted trumplings should be telling us what haters we are. Did I miss anything? Oh! I almost forgot:


    BUT HILLLARYYYY!!!!!

    Well, watch this video. At the end, you get a clip of Trump speaking in Australia in 2011. He admits that he makes up awards and gives them to himself and claims it's not really lying.

    "I give myself awards all the time. Then I announce I just received an award. And there's nothing deceptive about it because I actually did...but I gave it to myself."

    Also, notice how often he's made stuff like this up.

    Do you need any more proof that this man is a con man?



    Hayes asks, "Does Donald Trump believe it's true or does he think we're all stupid?"

    I think Trump makes this stuff up because he believes we're all stupid.
    He also declared himself the "chosen one"! You can't make that stuff up
