I like him, and voted for him in the Texas primary, but I'm interested in what you all think. I'm sure I will be putting my self back on the MS most wanted list with this admission, but I'm interested in finding out.

Sadly I think we will all be disappointed as to how normal his presidency will be. He's not a lunatic.

If you are interested, please post in the thread. Won't start the league unless I see interest.

Ok. So, I'm curious, what do you think about the violence surrounding his rallies? What specifically do you like about his policies besides "He tells it like it is"? Because that's all I've heard from the people supporting him.

At this point, I'm basically assuming that anyone who votes/supports Trump is an unabashed racist.


I can understand being conservative. I can understand being fed up with the establishment (esp the GOP establishment). What I absolutely cannot comprehend is how anybody could support Trump's obvious racism, pathological lying and backtracking, and willingness to sell out to anyone and anything to increase his publicity.

Categorizing most Mexicans as rapists
Categorizing all Muslims as terrorists
Advocating war crimes by insisting that we bomb extremists' families
Making fun of a disabled reporter
Encouraging violence from his supporters by promising to cover legal fees for those who perform violent acts in his name

These words simply don't come from a person with a shred of moral fiber. To support him is to support white supremacy, oppression of good and innocent people, and the complete disregard of United States law.

Shotty, I'd like to know exactly WHY you support Donald Trump. What policies of his do you agree with, and for what reasons? Because I'm perfectly willing to have a civil and productive conversation with a Trump supporter, except that I have yet to encounter one whose answer to the question "why" isn't some generic bullshit about "he speaks his mind" or "he tells it like it is." Those are deflective non-answers from people who aren't willing to admit that they don't understand his platform or policies, or people who aren't willing to straight-up admit that they're racist bigots.

There is a huge difference between race and legal status, remember that.

I know that, but three things here:
1) Trump's comments weren't directed at only-illegal-immigrants-from-Mexico
2) Being an illegal immigrant still doesn't make you a rapist
3) Trump's comments about Muslims are arguably worse than his statements about Mexicans, and while Islam is technically a religion as opposPogChampd to a race, the combination of his statements towards both groups is indicative of a systemic xenophobic attitude

Many GOP members (and candidates!) want stricter immigration law AND stronger enforcement of said law. And most of them aren't inflammatory racists like Donald Trump is.

Snotty, do me a favor and read the first point in this article. It is literally a factual rejection of Trump's statemets about undocumented/illegal immigrants.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/doliaesteve ... 0c2d907076

You don't even have to bother with the rest of the article (although I would suggest reading the whole thing for added context) but just read and understand why his statements are false, and perhaps you can understand why they are intended to vilify the group as a whole.
