The anti-Trump resistance takes shape: 'Government's supposed to fear us'

yep , he legally won . You can be very proud of yourselves . Just by myself , I think that this will be the most dangerous American presidency for the world , ever .

he's an thin - skinned egomaniac , who is trying to surpress the media and reacts paranoid towards anything and anybody remotely opposing him . He's trying to seclude his country and he has control over nuclear weapons , which everybody is just hoping not even he's crazy enough to use them . Kim - Jon Trump ?

 

I wondered how long it would take for the nuclear weapons threat to rear its ugly head.

 

Does anybody realistically think that the President can launch a nuclear weapon as he chooses??   It seems so.

 

There would be concurrence required of many prior to it being put to the President, and then, AND ONLY THEN, would that action be taken.   He cannot just launch nuclear weapons at will, nor authorize such action without numerous safeguards being satisfied.

 

The gets more ridiculous by the minute.

Republicans are too busy working for a living to protest.

 

How many street protests took place with the passage of the ACA?

 

Yep, these are the welfare dependent making the noise, and their welfare payments could be under threat.  Throw into the mix a few intellectuals/professionals, who also earn megabucks, but have the capacity to incorporate, and pay sfa tax, preaching that the rest of us should pay more to help out the "poor".

 

The best/only way to help the poor is to not be one of the poor.   Many are poor because they choose to be that way, work is not for them when they can suck on the public purse.

US and Canada come to mind. 

 

That is because Americans are law-abiding citizens and do not sneak into Canada by the millions annually. 

 

They do not sneak large quantities of drugs into Canada. 

 

They do not exploit the Canadian Welfare system. 

 

They do stop and report at Customs and follow the Laws of the Land.

 

But this sure looks like fencing to me:

The "elite" holding power??   Would you prefer a bunch of down and out, welfare dependent nobodies, running the country??  That would be a sure path to ruin, in short time.

 

Most who have achieved intellectual and economic "elitism" have done so after years of damned hard work. Those who haven't, to varying degrees, don't choose to put in the years of hard slog, and that's their choice, but don't condemn those who do make that choice and are prepared to dedicate their lives to their cause, for whatever reasons.

 

The "elite" employ, buy, travel, etc., so circulate the money, building companies,  creating jobs, etc.   

 

I know who I'd prefer to have running the country.

Bit narrrow thinking there. The jobs the elites create begin to be more menial labor with low pay and benfits while the bulk of money being circulated passes between the elites.

There would have been none.  As ClutchClark said in an earlier post, there would have been a bit of grumbling around the coffee machine, and back to work.

 

Republican supporters are busy at work.   It's the welfare dependent left who have time for street protests..

The whinge-a-thon continues. Get over yourselves, chaps. Your country is a bit of a mess, why not pool together and do something about it? Far too many people have their hand out, thinking the country owes them something -- for starters, the douchebags on the streets need to grow up, start working and put some money into the coffers.

Let's remind 2012 : "Donald Trump Freaks Out on Twitter After Obama Wins Election"

We can't let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!

Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.

The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy.

So one of the more important campaign programs of Trump ie getting rid of the DC elites is not what you are supporting.

So what are the programs of Trump you do support? Jobs, affordable healthcare, killing trade deals, fixing the infrastructure, building hospitals and schools, free education, you know, all these socialist ideals? I bet not! Or do you maybe support the ban on Muslims and "building the wall"? More likely, right? Or do you just think Trump is a hero because of his utter misogynistic behavior?

Judging by the amount of spam mail I get promising 'Cheap Canadian Meds' Americans most certainly do sneak OUT large quantities of drugs.

 

And I would count that as a most definite exploitation of the Canadian Welfare system if these drugs are are partially subsidized by the Canadian taxpayer.

Republicans are maybe too busy working, but a very large chunk of the Trump voters aren't. Thats because they simply don't have work. It's clear you are conveniently overlooking the people who actually made Trump win the election? Or is this just ignorance? My bet is that that is exactly what Trump will do too. Conveniently ignoring the people who voted for him because he doesn't give a sh*t about the American people!

 

And with grumbling at the coffee break I trust you mean the "patriots" with assault riffles trying to solve the "RIGGED SYSTEM".

A big difference would have been the republicans still would have controlled the house and probably the senate too.

People are blaming Trump for everything while forgetting that he does not become President until January 20th.  Forget both Hilary's and Trump's rhetoric during the campaigning and give the guy a chance.  If things go belly-up in the first few months, then you can start to complain.

 

Winning candidates are not accountable for statements and promises made on the campaign trail? That's an quite an interesting bit of political science. As for "give the guy a chance" - given many were directly opposed to his views before he won, why would they be expected to give him a chance post-elections? The fact that he won does not cancel the views of those who oppose him.
