"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."

Finally, humankind will develop anti-gravity technology, and seek our destiny in the stars. All thanks to the innovative 'TrumpDrive'. Every starship's prow will be emblazoning with his glorious, screaming visage.

Since Obama got his for nothing, except being the first president of the USA to have black blood, it seems fitting that Trump gets one, for holding his temper for the most part on his "The Apprentice" show.

lol

Here's the reality, though... Trump is objectively the most reasonable candidate for the GOP nomination.

Trump supports gay marriage; he would not try to overturn Roe v. Wade; he doesn't really care about using the force of government to persecute non-heterosexual and non-white people; he isn't interested in getting the country involved in a costly ground war; and above all, with him, I know exactly what I'm getting. I'm getting a center-right guy with a loud mouth and short temper. My kind of guy.

Cruz, Rubio and Bush oppose gay marriage and would use their Supreme Court appointments to vanquish it from the United States; would overturn roe; would use the force of the United States Government to persecute gays, legalize sexual-identity based discrimination in the workplace, would be totally ok with bastardizing "freedom of religion" to make gay people second class citizens AND see no problem with the state of racial politics in this country; would invade the Middle East again; and the list of woe goes on.

Worse yet, Cruz is a sick, lying, manipulative, evil psychopath. Rubio is a tiny little man with an axe to grind with the world. Bush has all the leadership capability of a bowl of saw dust, and the inspirational capacity of lead paint.

Why not? Trump would just block Muslims from entering the United States for a short period of time; all the other Republicans would kill them en masse abroad.

Oh please... the fact that he's got a big mouth does not mean he's going to drag the country into another idiotic war that the next president will ruin.

Precisely.

Well..he did. Of course, now he's backtracked all of that. At least with gay marriage and abortion.

Cruz, Rubio and Bush oppose gay marriage and would use their Supreme Court appointments to vanquish it from the United States; would overturn roe; would use the force of the United States Government to persecute gays, legalize sexual-identity based discrimination in the workplace, would be totally ok with bastardizing "freedom of religion" to make gay people second class citizens AND see no problem with the state of racial politics in this country; would invade the Middle East again; and the list of woe goes on.

Pretty much.

Did you forget the part about going after their families?

He'll unite humanity in building a gold-plated space elevator, bringing humans into the galactic era once and for all. Just picture it: golf courses on asteroids, resorts hidden under the lip of moon craters. All of humanity united behind the Trump brand.

Well, Trump at least had real accomplishments before running for POTUS.

Unlike Obama who pretty much got elected on the opinion of liars like Oprah Winfrey and Brad Pitt...lol

Trump definitely deserves it more.
