Lots of people care. You have to ask yourself why you think people shouldn't?

Here's 5 reasons to care why Trump and his ideas winnig a Democratic vote is bad:
  • He says a lot of things that are anti-Democratic ideas
  • He compliments authoritarian leaders who are anti-Democratic ideas
  • His business (like his White House) is run incompetently (whether that be bankruptcies, constant turnover of staff, leaking, accusation, in-fighting, etc)
  • He insults members of the media, ethnicities, women, countries, his own country, etc.
  • He lies openly and easily
Here's the reasons why they matter, in case that is required:
  • Democratic ideas allow us to have information and the power to vote on who makes decisions and we should protect those things
  • Authoritarian leaders have a long history of behaving selfishly and cruelly to maintain their power
  • An incompetently-run White House can't respond quickly to do what it wants, and, worse, can easily make big and basic errors (as has already happened)
  • The President of the USA is often considered the most powerful role in the world, with huge say on decisions that effect billions
  • We don't want politicians that lie openly and easily, because lying is bad

You forgot: He's a criminal & he's also an illegitimate POTUS.....Much the same as could be said of the presidency of the boy puppet in Bush Junior.

Some, like me, reckon that this can be a GOOD thing, that the White House can't respond quickly, that it can't do what it wants anymore.

Russia and China aren't beacons of freedom by any stretch, but in the absence of any truly benevolent Great Power it is vitally important that they each are powerful enough to hold one another in check against that special kind of unilateralism that sees other nations get invaded and/or their interior workings meddled with.

Perhaps it would be better put, by noting how both Russia & China attempt to follow the resolutions of international law as set out by the U.N; Whereas the U.S, on the other hand, just ignore them & ride roughshod over most of them, both illegally & unconstitutionally.....Still no war crimes tribunals though for all the shit they've pulled since the end of the Second World war.

My comment was in response to your claim that we should "just see what happens". We've been seeing that for over 18 months (more if you include the lead up to his inauguration when Russian revelations and poor choices for his administration were being made, and of course his election campaign was indicative too).

His tax cuts & incentives for business have improved the economy as per several measures, but no economic indicator is all that different to when Obama was in charge. Largely trends have been maintained from Obama's Presidency. The stock market got excited due to the tax cuts but has now been subdued by Trump's trade war. Given how much the tax cuts and incentives have potentially cost the USA in revenue, Republicans will be hoping that they economy picks up far more than it has. Wage stagnation is a major sticking point, and the US has a very low minimum wage which is why they have 'the working poor' (people who have jobs, even multiple jobs, but still struggle to make ends meet). Voters know well that their pay packets haven't improved so that could cost them at the polls.

Drone attacks in Pakistan and Yemen went through the roof under Obama the Democrats golden child

Or Hillarys Clinton's invasion of Libya and syria.

Someone said something about trump breaking laws but don't mention this

I wonder why?

The drone program has actually increased 4-fold under Trump....But the MSM won't tell you about it.

The U.S are currently also in over 10 African countries as we speak, operating under stealth.

There are still over 3,000 terrorists in Idlib that all of Russia, China & Syria, are currently mobilizing to remove.

Trump has merely continued on with things a-pace....Nothing has changed under him so far as U.S policy of rape & pillage is concerned.....the line in the sand over Syria was drawn some 2 years ago, when Hilary attempted to enforce a no-fly zone over the Russians, who ignored her.....And the rest, as they say, is history.

Support for the Syrian insurgency slowed down when there was regime change in America.

Now we have China bankrolling the rebuilding of syria. Syria Russia and China calling for America(and us) to pay

Hillary was funded heavily by Saudis and was calling for all out war in Syria. She was also heavily backed by American arms companies.

She personally oversaw the transfer of heavy weapons supplied to al queda in Libya to syria.

It's a strange world

Carter started all queda
Dubya used them as a three card trick in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Hillary made them the biggest mercenary army ever and gave them thier own gestapo (isis)

Now Trump is winding them back

Only cause these wars made big oil money. This made Russia money

Why would Russians rig an election that would see thier economy weaken? If they were successful?

Hilary was merely following on from what Bush had done before her, & the edicts as set out by the U.S Council On Foreign Relations.

All these wars have done is bankrupted the U.S, while making her establishment class exorbitantly wealthy....Russia & China are now effectively the world's police.

To take Iran down all of the U.S, Israel & The Saudi's will have to go through them first.....That's why the C.I.A are currently working on ways internally, to remove the current Iranian government by stealth.

Syria was always about the oil & gas pipe-line routes heading into Eastern Europe, so as to cut into the Russian's monopoly on it & their major money spinner....It was always the key to these wars & now Putin has scuppered all that....Ergo the 'Russia, Russia, Russia" hysterical nonsense from the Western press.

The ease with which liberals have jumped on this Russia-gate band-wagon is a shocking scene to behold.....I have no more qualms about how it was that Hitler came to power now.....People are so easily manipulated & hood-winked by ideology & propaganda these days, it's gob-smacking to witness first-hand.
Those kind of liberal idiots get their information from morons like Rachel Maddow and The View rather than listen to a Noam Chomsky.

Seems the Bernie Bros are finally waking up too all the bullshit and realising their beloved Democrats and the media are some of the biggest frauds going around.

Right now a guy like Jimmy Dore gives one of the more balanced outlooks on all the goings on because they see the system is rotten to the core.

All evidence of the pethetic left versus right fighting. Everything the left says about the right is true of themselves. All thier doing is looking into a mirror

And don't forget the nuclear industry role in Syria and Libya.

Syria were bankrolling massive solar program to pipe electricity into Europe

Syria had no debt. No banks or investors could cash in. Electricity. Green electricity. Cheap electricity supplied to Europe full of nukes that would be useless

These nukes would need to be cleaned up at a cost of billions while getting no return.

It is what it is

It is what it is
In 2000, there were 7 countries left that weren't under the control of a Rothschilds central bank:

They were;

1. Libya.
2. Syria
3. Iran
4. North Korea.
5. Afghanistan
6. Sudan
7. Cuba

Now there are only 2 left....Iran & Cuba....The principal reason for peace in Syria is that Assad has acquiesced, as too North Korea just recently.

See if you can work out any parallel lines there.

I do get where your coming from and thank you for the sharing of knowledge and compassion.

Do a search on the British nuclear reactors being decommisioned.

The costs are astronomical and the time for completion continually put back. It's billions per plant. Have a look at how many nukes in operation in France and consider the cost to devommisioned these. Consider Assad could of supplied electricity at a fraction of the costs these nukes currently do

When the nukes go broke. Who pays for the clean up. They have to be cleaned up. If not the whole country is in danger of being a pripyat or Fukushima. There is a law industry in every town a nuke is facilating the cancer and child defects that are spiked in these towns

Assad threatened the establishment and thier profits from nukes. The governments would be the one left with the mess. Hence why they ran the insurgency

Trump may be winding back Hilary's wars but he is doing nothing about this

Is America great again? Was it ever great? Or was that the media?

Is he building the wall still?

Will he get a 2nd term?

America was founded upon a Democratic ideal of what a people's Republic ought to be...…..It hasn't been that way for over 100 years now, ever since the Bankers took control of it's Federal Reserve in 1913.....That'll teach the buggers to defy us with their Boston Tea Party's & Declaration of Independence prefaced upon human rights & egalitarian principles.

Revenge is a dish best served long, slow & painfully administered.

Fukcin what? It's a politician's job to lie to the public.
I don't want that. Why would you?

BTW the 'reply' button will quote the text so I don't miss you comment next time.

Trump has already claimed a number of times that he had made America great again. He's even announced his 2020 slogan 'Keep America Great!'. Politicians, unsurprisingly, and patriotic citizens proclaimed America great. Outlets like Fox News tap into that sentiment, but you'd have to go a long way back into history to find out who was the first to proclaim it 'great', even though every country has flaws.

Such ridiculous hubris has obviously worked for him in the past, but given he hasn't changed much this might be his biggest rhetorical mistake in trying to get re-elected. People thought he would do something more substantial than just repeating Republican policies of the past. Even his claims that he is already building the wall aren't really true, as the work being done is apparently planned by Obama. There isn't any 'wall' being built that is like he has advertised. He should lose heavily in the mid-terms, and could be impeached before getting a chance to run in 2020 (or quit if doing a deal that gets the investigation stopped). He would very likely lose anyway in 2020, but I didn't think he'd win in 2016. This time the TRussian propaganda online shouldn't work as well.

Moore, an advocate who investigated abused and trafficked children, had been in the process of investigating allegations by a 26-year-old man that — as a young boy — he was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton and pimped out at private sex parties attended by other D.C. elites.
In fact, just four weeks before her death, Moore filed details of the alleged victim’s claims with the Department of Homeland Security, detailing the allegations against Clinton. Moore contacted Homeland Security beginning on July 6th through July 9th, records show. A week later, she contacted the FBI with identical details about the victim and the shocking allegations against Clinton.

Guy who uncovered Clinton running drugs for Escobar dead

Guy who leaked the details of Clinton's bribing of media and buying the presidential nomination. Dead.

This is why we have trump
