PostSubject: Does Tump represent American thinking and values?   Tue Dec 08, 2015 12:30 am

This morning's news shows Trump saying that he would ban all Muslims from entering the US.  He went further to say that Muslims should be killed and that includes al members of their family since those families "reproduce".  When one supporter was asked about her feelings, she said:  "I agree.  We must preserve American values." 
Too bad the reporter didn't ask her:  "What are the American values?"

It is scary to think that such a man as Trump could be come President of the US.  He has already shown himself to be a racist, now he's playing the religious card and has many supporters. 

I have been asked via email by a few friends on FB what country I would recommend that they could emigrate to.  Should such a man be elected President, I'm guessing that there would be many who would try to leave.

After hearing the news this morning, my wife said:  "I can't escape.  First I was made to feel ashamed to carry a German Passport, now I will be ashamed to carry an American Passport."

Trump is blowing smoke. He has identified a constituency that no one else owns because no one else wants them, and he is saying what they want to hear. That particular demographic has felt disenfranchised for generations, and he is pandering to their feelings of being left out in the representation cold. It isn't about what he believes or what he will do as president. It's about getting elected.

I think Trump is the only Republican candidate who stands a chance of beating Hillary because of that neglected constituency he's corralled. They'll vote for him, and they'll come out in strong numbers. That's not cause to leave the country though. If I was going to do that, I'd have done it a long time ago.

He may be blowing smoke, but where there's smoke, there is fire.
