Trump says his belief in his own victory is more accurate than your actual votes!

In other words, he won't commit to following the rules of US democracy, even before the election! That means he cannot be trusted to follow the rule of law as President, and disqualifies him from office..


Challenging pillar of US democracy, Trump says he may not accept election.

Republican candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday would not commit to accepting the outcome of the Nov. 8 U.S. presidential election if he loses, challenging a cornerstone of American democracy and sending shockwaves across the political spectrum.

As Milwaukee County Sheriff, Clarke's job is to uphold the law. By telling people to take the law into their own hands, he is saying calling for lawlessness and is therefore no longer fit to be Sheriff. It's also very hypocritical for Clarke to criticize the very government whose authority he exercises and whose paycheck he collects. Without such authority, no one would have even given him a microphone to do any press conferences!

This asshole stepped over the line. You can always advocate against government institutions, but you cannot start talking about "torches and pitchforks." That is inciting violence and he knows it damn well. He can talk about the Declaration of Independence all he wants, but if the British had caught up with the signers of that document they'd have been hung for treason. Bottom line: he is advocating armed rebellion and he ought to go jail.

Sheriff Clarke seems to have forgotten a lot of history.

When the angry mobs do come "with torches and pitchforks", they tend to go after people who don't look like them. The whole idea of lynchings involved white people attacking blacks. It was a form of terrorism, and inciting it was criminalized. I'm surprised and sad that Clarke doesn't know the law.

Angry mobs also tend to attack symbols of authority, whether police officers, police cars or police stations. As sheriff, his office's role in repossessing people's homes and cars is sure to make him a target of an angry mob. Early American Revolutionaries attacked British Tax Collectors in the colonies, and French Revolutionaries even killed people who owned stock!

Other times, when an angry mob finds that their anger cannot be vented satisfactorily, they turn on their own leader, the person who incited them. When the guillotine was done killing the Royal Family, the crowd's lust for blood was still strong.

So unless Sheriff Clark is calling for a mob of black county Sheriffs, he is more likely to be on the receiving end of torches and pitchforks!

After Republican losses in the Presidential races of 2008 and 2012, the GOP commissioned an "autopsy" to determine what they did wrong.

After Trump's defeat in 2016, they will need to do a lot more than that.

Lol
Trump is mad at elected officials. Donors are mad at the RNC. And everyone anticipates a bloodbath on Election Day.

Interesting take on Bernie's primary loss to Hillary.

In getting a lot of grass-roots Progressive activity, he might ultimately have much more influence over policies than just another candidate. Even when he was still running in the primaries, Sanders said his goal was to start a movement greater than just his candidacy. That is still possible, even if Hillary becomes president. (It is certainly less likely under an autocrat like Trump, who talks of jailing political opponents.)

Good comments by Maxx D, who also contends that Sanders supporters should focus on what they can do going forward to help progressive causes, instead of rehashing concerns about their primary loss.

Your plans for Our Revolution remind me of what the Moral Majority and the far right did between Barry Goldwater’s loss in 1964 and Ronald Reagan’s victory in 1980. They did a lot of work at the local level to run people for school boards and get local candidates to focus on the issues that mattered most to them. That was a successful movement that emerged from a losing campaign—one that changed the course of a major political party.
In an in-depth interview, Sanders offers a candid and passionate assessment of Trump, Clinton, and the future of his movement.

It's terrible that the Republicans choose Trump as their candidate despite his xenophobia, calls for religious bans, round-ups and mass deportations. Ideally, after his opening campaign speech was so anti-immigrant, that should have been then end of his political career.

On the other hand, it's good that something finally took him down. A majority of voters are women, and even most guys don't commit the sort of unwanted sexual acts that Trump does. We certainly don't want guys like Trump going after our wives, girlfriends, daughters, sisters, moms, etc.

Still, Trump has come disturbingly close to the U.S. Presidency. And the Republican Party powered his rise, instead of stopping him from being their spokesman. Now, their association with him should cost them down-ballot votes in November.

Trumpism is the new Fascism.

Growing up in Mussolini's Italy in the 1930s and 1940s, Umberto Eco wrote about the 14 characteristics of Fascism. Trump's campaign embodies all of them.

Even if you are Trump supporter, it's a good essay to read to know the signs of ANY dictator trying to get people to blindly follow them. Because the next Mussolini might have an American name.

Most people don't want a President who goes after teenage girls.

Even Republicans concede Bill Clinton's affairs involved adults.

Even if Trump won, there would STILL be gridlock in Congress because he can't get along with his own party!

Donald says he can negotiate with foreign countries when he can't even deal with his own party, let alone journalists and the media. No wonder his poll numbers keep sinking.

So it's time to vote for Hillary AND all the down-ballot races so she has a Democratic Congress (House and Senate) to work with.

"With friends like these..."

When the Republicans gerrymandered Congressional districts to be "solid Republican" after the 2010 Census, they effectively made their Primary the main Election in those districts. Extremists thrive at primaries, because they who do not need support from people from the other party. So the GOP essentially locked-in a hard-line group or Tea Partiers unwilling to compromise, and a radical candidate like Donald Trump.

Now they are paying the price, when even the Speaker of the House (Ryan) is afraid to stand up to Trump. And the Democrats are likely to advance in Congress, as anti-Trump voters also work to expel Republicans from Congress. Meanwhile, Donald's "Rigged Election" lies are keeping his own supporters home instead of voting Republican, since they will conclude their votes will go uncounted.

Be careful what you wish for (i.e. GOP control of Congress), you just might get it.

In a democracy, there needs to be more than one party, so there can be two-way discussions about policy issues. There is no place for violent extremism.

So the Democrats are helping rebuild a Republican Party office in North Carolina after it was firebombed. Because that's how you protect free speech in a democracy.

See, this is how democracy should work. You reject the extremists, you don't egg them on.

Trump is NOT a "law and order" candidate when he encourages his supporters to kill people to suppress free speech.

Free speech is protected under the First Amendment.

Only a dictator looking to take away your freedom doesn't understand that.
Donald Trump has NO experience in public service, only self-service!

This is what America is about, and anyone who threatens a reporter should renounce their citizenship. I never expected a conservative newspaper editorial to bring me to tears, but this one did.
We endorsed a candidate, and faced reaction that threatened our business and our people. How should we respond? By speaking out about what matters most.
