Fine. I'll give your statement credence. Now what would you do to make these imbeciles think correctly and vote properly for the right candidate you deem worthy?

Go ahead and lead that horse to water.
I have long argued for the institution of some type of competency test to get the right to vote.

But it wouldn't work in the US because your system has all entities that could set such a thing up being very politically dominated by the party in power.

Basically, unless some truly bi-partisan and neutral organization could administer the test/registration it would just lead to massive disenfranchisement.

The issue (in this case) is not political right or wrong. The issue is standing firmly by our ethics, principles and dictates of conscience.

I am always shocked when people claim to be one thing and display the opposite.
Odds are, you voted for Obimbo knowing his socialist views. And then question Trump supporters? Questioning their ethics, principals, and dictates of conscious? Aren't you being a bit presumptuous.

Frankly, Trumps tweets to me are meaningless. So I never listen to them. I find it to be something of a distraction, nothing more. The Internet is full of that.

If you don't view the media as agenda driven, then....I understand why you think the way you do. One of the driving components that keep it going. Congrats.

But that's the thing. The Republican President's tweets are not agenda driven media, they are his own brainfarts. Most of them are issued in the wee hours.

Once in a while one will come out on that account with reasonable grammar and normal phraseology that make sense. Obviously, those are the few some aid wrote for him.

They are the window to his soul and his mind, such as it is.

Obama's socialist views?? You boys just LOVE throwing that word around. If Obama is a socialist he's really bad at it.

When he took office the DOW closed at approx 7900. When he left office it hovered at 19,000.
Corporate profits were up 57%. When Obama left office the 1% owned more of America than ever before. Is that the profile of a socialist?

Obama sought social justice--a level playing field. Obama set the gold standard for ethics and moral integrity. No pornstars payoffs. No adultery. Just one wife. Transparency of his finances. No fraud lawsuits. No discrimination charges. No payouts. No connections to Russia. No indictments of his staff.
Thanks from RNG, Hollywood and Lyzza

Trumps tweets are NOT meaningless. His tweets have an effect on the economy and world political events.

His tweets, for the most part, are worthless but that is not the same thing as meaningless

Aren't Caca and his friends unimaginably weird! The Trumpers, if he is anything to go by, are obviously insane racists who should be shot!

President Obama (perhaps even Republicans know about him) was about as Socialist as Reagan, whereas Trump is merely Hitler without the ability.
