    I don't no whether to laugh or cry. The possibility that you might actually believe any of that banal clap trap saddens me no end. Barak Obama who never found a racial incident he couldn't magnify out of all proportion to realty or a fire on which he would not pour copious amounts of gasoline uniter? That's a wholly laughable position at best. Obama a uniter? Then Attila the Hun was pacifist and Mussolini a humanitarian. Obama a Respecter of all Americans? With his bitter clinger comment? Don't make me laugh.

    Oh and you must have missed Carter's malaise speech, and Clinton's serial abuse of women. Only Reagan and the Bushes really came close to that standard And I was never certain with the Bushes as to whether or not it was just an act.

    Oh and one other thing. I'm not sure anyone currently extant can unify this country and I don't see any Democrats in this current field that will even make the attempt.

    Mob Boss -- another name to help out the Trump haters who can only toss around names and never discuss Trump's great record or his policies that are MAGA.

    Most mob bosses typically haven't been all that bright. They are just bullies. Not to disparage all Italians, but the history of the Mafia has been of bosses like Lucky Luciano, but behind the scenes there were always Jews, like Meyer Lansky, who were the real brains of the operation.

    But then, time and time again, it seems to me that conservatives would prefer a mob boss over an honest man.

    If Trump actually were a Mob Boss, Comey's FBI would have protected "the" Don Trump ... like they did Whitey Bulger, and Danny Greene. :;):

    You need examples of conservatives being silenced?

    Your posting was rather vague; all I'm looking for is some clarification.

    How about riots when someone with unapproved ideas tries to speak?

    Actually the lefties drove him to where he is in their eyes. Their big mistake, not taking advantage of all the republicans that truned their backs on him in his first year of office. The democrats could have owned Trump with just a little a$$ kissing.

    Can't say you're wrong. Trump is like the dog who will follow anyone who pets him ... just ask the North Koreans.

    We can also consider that, finally, more and more, observers are admitting that they see Trump taking this country toward authoritarian dictatorship with the approval of a renegade Republican Party. And there are great similarities between a mob boss and an authoritarian dictator.

    Realize one thing: once Trump takes this process far enough, -and we are now VERY close to that point, -stopping him and turning it around will be impossible. We will then be doomed to go through a very dark period of political degeneracy and extreme suffering for many people. And the Democrats are playing footsie with it all, -too afraid to take decisive action to stop him.

    I preferred Trump over a dishonest criminal wench.

    And I don't see anyone all that much better than Hillary in the current Democratic field. Bernie was in on the Clinton fix in 2016. How does that not make him a dishonest man?

    Meanwhile, Biden is so scattered that he may not even know the difference at this point.

    My turn is your thread is complete idiocy.

    If you really want to compare President Donald Trump to "a mob boss" would it be too difficult for you to at least name REAL mob bosses and not FICTIONAL ones!!!!!?

    If you're going to do that then why not bring up fictional presidents as well?

    You've never proven any of the bile and venom you've spewed at President Trump. Though I'm sure you will claim otherwise.

    To be fair, his family does have a long history of mob connections. His father used to hire the mafia to rough up and intimidate business rivals and coerce unwanted tenants to abandon properties.

    Why is it that Trump supporters find it so difficult to post without personal attacks, anger, or profanity. Usually, when that happens, it means someone just lost the argument and the high ground.

    It doesn't have to be proven since it is common knowledge.

    Joseph Stalin who set up Penal System as severe as Penal Systems in modern Southern states was a great villain. Joseph Stalin who set up Totalitarian censorship like modern American Academia was a great villain.

    Joseph Stalin who organized Industrialisation and lead USSR to Victory over Nazis was a great hero!

    Stalin's penal system was far worse than any here in America. For instance his system allowed the guards to simply shoot you. We do not allow that in America.

    We get our censors and call them Democrats

    Sure, Stalin used American military tools along with Soviet Tanks and ended up beating the Germans. But unless leaders are in a constant state of war with America helping them, how long can they live on laurels of beating up the Nazis Sure the nazis needed to be beaten and he did that.

    Of all posters here, i saw what Stalin did to Berlin. My lord look at it.
