    He's more than a fart in the USA, he's a racist modern day hitler. He is gathering all the racist votes. So far about 8 million people voted for him. with 320 million people I knew that there are a lot of them, I never realized this many. He has blacks and Spanish thrown out of his rallies.

    2. Why do you lie? What purpose does it serve?
    Are you even an American?
    You really don't know what's going on here.

    If Rubio doesn't have a significant win in Florida his campaign is done. No amount of money or GOP establishment help will be able to save him.

    @ 1 @ 2 So, if he is such a Hitler, why are so many of us voting for him?
    Because he speaks the truth and is not afraid to say what other don't

    #4 Simple, desperation, thats why! Have you read the history of Germany in the early 1930s. The German people were desperate, they had had a succession of failed governments in months that failed and failed again, that's why they voted for Hitler. Now 8m Americans are fascinated by this racist divisive bigot , many of them racists themselves. Trump is using racism and hatred of professional politicians as the main thrust of his campaign. He has frantically started back peddling on his disgusting racist statements, but its too late.
    Every Democrat is hoping that Trump succeeds in getting the GOP nomination because Hillary will well and truly Trump him and America will have its first female President.
    I have spoken to Hitler and he agrees...

    I'm not upstaging anyone. If someone is going to shit at me, I can shit back. I know the Vinoy because I spent a lot of time at the Basin area. The only time I've been in the Vinoy was for lunch. I'm not a damned liar. I don;t need to fluff my confidence and say I'm wealthy as all shit, watch me post BS on MP. I've said it before the the original Voice( there are so many these days), I am cheap and not because I am penniless. There's an old saying.....“.live under your means and no over it”. But the Vinoy is a great place. Be sure to check out Ybor City if you're ever in the area.

    The term of office of the US President is only 4 years,if Trump gets elected and doesn't perform he can be voted out in a short time.

    The US is not Germany in the 30,s Trump can not stop future elections.

    Not worth getting worked up about.

    As for the customs area, whether you purchase anything or not, every travel is processed through the customs area in Argentina, Ezeiza International Airport. And, the layout has not changed in decades.

    Yup, there certainly is as I already searched them. However, there are some things those pictures are just not showing, that you would only know by walking that trail.

    Read some of his posts as Thomas Paine, he claims he never said he supports Trump and asked me to show him where he posted that he does.

    You really think that's him? That's not a far drive from some places I go. Maybe I can schedule a sit down to review houses he can show me.......hehehe. If that's really him, what a fat, bald head shithead.

    It's clear but it does not matter what you think and you were wrong about mandatory registration. Mandatory mesns...no choice, like selective service.

    Trump is the inevitable end result of the Republican Party's 'Southern Strategy' which was introduced before the 1968 election. The purpose of this strategy was to lever the 'solid south' Dixiecrats away from the Democratic party. This was expanded upon in the 1980s by the Reagan administration to include the 'Reagan Democrats' which pulled in those newly redundant workers in the Rust Belt. then come the totally incompetent administration of G.W. Bush which resulted in the Great Recession.

    The GOP offered these Dixiecrats Wingnut Welfare. This consists of a bait and switch operation in which white voters are promised prosperity which, after the election, always seems to end up in the hands of the country club Republicans. The reason that Trump is doing so well is that these voters have just woken up. Of course Trump is going to do his very own bait and switch if he ever gets the chance.

    The GOP establishment complain that Trump is not a true conservative. They are right. He's a Dixiecrat. He's offering Social Security, Medicare and a white America. The GOP establishment's problem is that a large number of the party's voters are not true conservatives either.

    So how to stop Trump? Simple. Just go back to 1968 and do not elect Nixon as the candidate. Likewise do not elect Reagan in 1980 and Bush in 2000. Likewise do not elect the Congresses of the late 1990s and 2000s. Problem solved.
