I personally think Trump doesn't really want to be President, he wants to influence the issues and make sure the candidates address the important things...

He has no chance of getting elected, which also means he has nothing to lose in being honest and forthright.

Why is Donald considered a joke and not a serious candidate, yet the likes of an obvious criminal such as Hillary or the batshit crazy Elizabeth Warren are serious contenders? I mean honestly, who's the real joke here, huh?

I'm really enjoying his candidacy so far. He's going to have to get way more specific on several fronts regarding how he intends to work with congress, etc, to get the things accomplished that he's been highlighting, but so far he's been a joy to watch. I'm digging how he isn't capitulating for the things he says. Other candidates spend half their time backpedaling, he doesn't. He's spot on regarding the illegals and I imagine his comments have the support of a massive silent majority. I hope, anyway.

Hillary and Elizabeth are their candidates. He's our lightning rod. I'm laughing my ass off.

When I was younger- and to an extent still- I was the guy who would speak up about the elephant in the room. I could not understand- and to an extent still do not- why no one else would say "There's an elephant in the room."

Perhaps it was the efforts of my father to instill in me a strong sense of right and wrong, and to speak up- to speak up when I saw something I thought to be wrong, and the consequences be damned. Cowards proceed with caution and the just man says 'consequences be damned', right, dad?

Para is that guy. Donald Trump is that guy, at last he is when he's lambasting the established political order in this country.
The world needs people like me and the Donald, so, even though you don't need my encouragement, Mr. Trump, I say go get 'em, tiger. Make 'em regret even getting out of bed in the morning.

I think, aside from Trump, only Ted Cruz can come close to illuminating the uncomfortable territory we are in now, but Cruz is a politician. The Donald is one up on him in that respect.

I am confident Trump loves this country and would like it to be #1 again...and respected throughout the world, much to the chagrin of the Human Democrat Centipede.

I'd love to see him participate in formal debates and hold everybody by the nose and kick them in the ass- the moderators, the other participants, the news media, and the lumbering, fetid behemoth called the United States Government.

He might be the outlier that we need to shake things up. Cruz is the only one that hasn't majorly flip flopped. I fully agree he is a douche and would never vote for him but variety is what we need right now.

Well, there's gotta be something to be said for a candidate who won't have to shake down 'donors' to a 'charitable foundation' to enrich his family!

I would take off work to watch that debate. I'm ready for a non-career politician to be in the People's House. IIRC, there was an actor who did a pretty good job about 35 years ago.

While I view Trump as amusing, I really can't think of him as a serious candidate. In fact considering how crowded the GOP field is and how entertaining the Donald is, I'd venture to say he's dangerous. My personal opinion is, he's aiding and abetting his pal on the other side, she who shall remain unnamed.

Please read through the following. My conclusions from these is he is 1) a smart/savy guy, 2) may speak well, but supports things inconsistent with his words and 3) is the same sort of snake that most politians are.

Bill, Hillary and the Donald

Why he supports the Democrats

Bill on his BFF the Donald

Why is the Presidency important? While it's been turned into a shithouse by the current resident, if someone with half an ounce of sanity is not housed there soon, IMO, we're headed to the same place as Greece, Detroit and Chicago. Look into the reasons Greece is having troubles. Basically it's been a welfare state for decades. We've got to stop this slide toward socialism. It's either get it under control or find some way to call in Para's comet like you'd call in a coyote.

Yes, why shouldn't Trump be president? It's not as if the office has meaning any longer, not now that the Democrats have shit all over the Constitution and put an entirely unqualified idiot in office for two terms.

If Trump got elected, we'd have the opportunity to listen to all the leftist fools say the things we've been saying about Obama for years, and I would absolutely love it. Again, what does it matter any more? It's not as if there is one single shred of dignity left to the office of POTUS. Really, what does it matter? The morons of this nation have seen to that, so fuck 'em.


There's still Dignity in the office of POTUS. There's a TON OF IT!
Granted, the current piece of shit that sits there warrants zero respect for all of the crap that he's pulled over the last 7 years. If someone spits on the Constitution, is it still worthy of respect? If someone steps on the Flag, is our Flag still not Dignified? That Office, much like the Flag and the Constitution still are worthy of Dignity and Respect. Just cause the family that's in that office have been wiping their asses all over everything doesn't mean that the Office is less Dignified.


Hopefully, the People wake up and pull their heads out of the sand and elect someone that can fix the mess that we're in today!



As for Trump...
Trump IS NOT a Politician. He's a Businessman. Politicians cant take a stand on things... "Immigration", WE all know it's fucked up, we know that the gaping hole down there needs to be closed, but a Politician cant say that. Mexicans vote, and if you say that, Mexicans will vote for the other guy.

Welfare? Go ahead and say the words "Welfare Reform" while you're trying to get elected, see how fast you loose votes. We know that it needs to be done, but you'll loose votes if you do!

As much as Trump "Keeps it real", I think that is going to be his problem. There's a lot of voters that don't want or can't handle the truth. They just hear what they want to hear.

Sadly, being President (As the current piece of shit has shown us) isn't about "doing the right thing" or being a leader. It's about getting votes, and holding votes to stay in the office for another 4 years, then hopefully passing the torch to your buddy.


At this point, America, I think NEEDS a Businessman to run the show. America should be run somewhat like a business. Trump, or hopefully a more competent, low-key businessman might just be the ticket.

I am in agreement with you

Trump is a serious candidate as a non-politician

which is what we need

I hope he goes far, I hope he pushes hard and causes serious anxiety amongst the career politicians who think they have what it takes

I kind of like the idea of a businessman running the show

he cannot possibly, ever, ever, ever do any worse than that piece of shit we have no masquerading as a leader

I'm surprised he hasn't painted the White House brown

When you study of his views he's Christie 2.0. There is also very little difference between a politician in DC and a successful businessman in NYC. He'll be fun to watch, but that's about it.
