    I've already signed up for Trump's 'Truth Social', and just can't wait to read facts for a change. Although I do get a lot of in-depth factual news from FOX NEWS on a daily and nightly basis. I understand this 'Truth Social will be available right before the 2022 mid term elections. As if the dems aren't going to hell in a handbasket with sleepy joe, and that the dems will easily lose control of both the congress and the senate--now we'll have Trump's social media format to help sink the radical progressive/Marxist dem party even more so.

    It WILL be trolled -big time and one of the ways will be simply to “go over the top” by complimenting Trump in such a away as to make it laughable. Add in some obscure australianisms/Canadian/UK slang and rhyming slang and see how long it will be before the posts get taken down.

    Then why did Trump breach so many rules? As far as he and many of his base are concerned rules only apply to others

    So trump makes a website to fight censorship...and one of the rules is you can't criticize him.

    Oh the irony...

    3 reasons why Donald Trump's new social media company is doomed to fail

    ...

    1. Twitter already exists. Know that whole axiom about not needing to reinvent the wheel? Well, Twitter already exists -- and has more than 200 million users. ...

    ...

    2. The conservative social space is crowded (and not doing well): Remember how Parler was the new Twitter for conservatives? Well, after a very brief surge in downloads in the wake of the January 6 riot at the US Capitol (and Twitter's decision to ban Trump), the app basically disappeared in terms of relevance. ...

    ...

    3. Donald Trump isn't president anymore. ...

    ... https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/21/politics/donald-trump-social-media-truth/index.html

    Good, solid reasons, I feel. This social network thing is Trump attempting to remain relevant. It has gotten him a splash of news coverage, something he obviously craves, but as the article goes on to point out, Trump has lost a lot of coverage and public interest. There just aren't enough people interested in him and his kooky claims to sustain a propaganda outlet, as we saw with his failed blog. This site is bound to end up the same way for the same reasons.

    The real question is why he wants this continuing attention and coverage. He is the first former president to behave like this after leaving office. Since he has been collecting money from the people he has duped with his lies, I can only assume that it is meant to keep people in his cult and throwing money his way -- money that he uses for his own purposes, not to litigate the election he clearly and decisively lost.

    To be honest I think long term this will be a very bad investment but in the short term I think there is a lot of money to be made. DWAC went up about 350% today. I think it will open at about 500-600% up by tomorrow. I was thinking of throwing 10-20K in but price soared immediately and I wanted to talk to one of our business analyst first to learn more about SPACs. I think a lot of people are hoping a lot of Trump supporters will invest in this company and try to get out before the merger. I would not want to have any money in this once the companies merge. Everything about it smells very scammy but in the short term I think there is money to be made. I think the reason the company is expecting low redemptions is because a lot of these investor are investing like a cult. They want desperately to believe in Trump and will keep their money in there longer than most real investors.

    Thats is so true. The funnier part is they don't even realize it.
    The left is the biggest Trump cult on the planet.

    Who are the biggest Trump cultist?
    The ones who never post about him,
    Or the flock that can't go a day without a Trump thread or a Trump post, while calling others cultist.

    The left is the biggest Trump cult on the planet. You guys couldn't live without him in your head 24/7.

    You guys make it so easy. lol

    I wonder what they're thinking. Do they believe throwing a 10-stage fit about Donald Trump anytime they have the opportunities somehow going to make us all say there must be something wrong with this guy and not laughing hysterically at them?

    How many times does one have to try and fail before they get the hint?

    The idiotic left doesn't even know they are posting on a site with the same rules. But that doesn't stop their Trump cultist behavior.
    And thats the real hypocrisy. Whining about a website, that isn't even up yet, because it says you can't disparage the people who created it, just like the very same website you are on now. :roflol:

    Its a one trick pony thing. Most on the left don't have the capacity to move in anything but one direction and that direction is determined by their media.
    Whatever the media claims, they will regurgitate on command for years. Hell, they still think Trump was a planted Russian agent. lol

    If I gave you a dollar for every thread that doesn't mention Trump by the left and you gave me a dime for every thread that does, you would have to get a loan to pay me. lol

    There are two problems that will need to be addressed. 1. Leftist trolls on the site. 2. Extreme alt-right on the site. Both sides will try to take it over. How will they be totally open without censoring either group? This will be a tough task.

    Well I wonder about that most people politically speaking are pawns they believe what their side believes. This is a very useful thing to people who want to control others because they can convince their pawns to poison the well.

    The only problem is you're going to reach a tipping point where these people on one side seem a lot more reasonable and these people over here are literally throwing a child fit in the street.
