In the early 30's, Germany was in economic ruin. In that context, desperate people would flocked to any leader who promised a way out. And if he blamed the ills of their nation on a small minority, so much the better. "Not our fault we lost the war, not our fault our currency has the value of toilet paper, it's those damn Jews!" And history unfolds from there. But we're not in economic ruin. We haven't been roundly defeated in a World War. We've gott some problems sure, but no more than we had ten years ago, and maybe less, as measured by some indicators such as unemployment. So what possible excuse can we offer for supporting someone as Vile as Trump? {s/Jews/Muslims/g S/Poles/Mexicans/g …} Referring to gitmo, a facility that has tortured innocent people (bycatch) to the point of suicide in its patriotic fervor, Trump vows, "I would keep it open and load it up with bad dudes." And he smiles - smiles when he thinks of torturing others. You can hear the joy in his voice as he elaborates, "They're going to tell us everything they know." Some might say Gitmo is a regretable business that must be done in the interest of national security and the greater good, but Trump thinks it's fun! His love for violence was on display again when he encouraged security to "knock the crap" out of a protester. "I will pay for your legal fees, I promise. You know what they used to do to a guy like that? He’d be carried out on a stretcher." If my blakc son had made such a threat in public, and on video, he'd be in prison facing felony charges - but that's another story. Trump's personality is compatible with the worst dictators in human history. all he needs is some technology and a loyal following. How is this possible in the United States of America? Why does this monster have even one supporter? I think the media plays a role, with their unrelenting fear mongering, but there's probably more to it than that. In any case, it's terribly frightening that he might get elected to anything higher than dog catcher, and personally, I'm not sure how he would treat the dogs - we know he doesn't like creatures who allow themselves to be captured.
