The big question is what will Trump's taxes reveal? If it contains what many think it does he will be very, very embarrassed. His net worth will be in question for sure I think. 

That said, he is still the presumptive favorite for any run for office. He can still run for president in 2024 and most say as of now, no big event, he would win the Republican nomination fairly easy. I think he could beat Biden IF the economy tanks or the Republicans obstruct so much as they did under Obama, nothing gets done. And the Dems have no idea how to make a narrative based on that. They are politically incompetent.

Hi, Guys, why are you so obsessed with this thread? Why want it locked? Don't like it, just don't bloody read it. Sanuk!  

Why do you need elections when you have the media?

We have a standing army, navy, air force and marine corps and coast guard all year, every year. The asshole should have been able to get into West Point or one of the other ervice academies IF he was

due to genetic predisposition he would lie, wouldn´t he?

Also social conditioning, in my humblest of opinions, the more Hi So, one is, or aspires to be, the greater the dishonesty.

I reckon he's been living on borrowed money since his first bankruptcy. Or in the modern parlance, like, since, forever.

Objection, your honor. Poverty does not make people honest. It still depends on the individual character. It just appears to be easier to regard members of the HiSo community as dishonest.

Doesn't matter what his taxes say

 

If he's rich, his supporters will say good on him, he's a good businesman

 

If he's poor - Good on him, he's been victimized by the entrenched powers and the swamp

 

Means nothing except we will gloat and we will look even dumber than ever to his supporters who will hate us more.

McConnell said Trump was responsible for instigating the Jan 6th Capital building domestic terrorist attack. And now he says he will back Trump if he runs again. He will back a person who instigates violence. Piece of shit. This is beyond party, ideology. It's right or wrong.

Republicans lie to their base in order to get votes. Saying Biden will bring in a far left agenda is laughable to anyone who knows his history. One of the rare things I agreed with Trump on is that America should remove itself from foreign military entanglements. The Dems were wrong to criticize and politicize Trump's wanting to move our troops out of Syria in my humble opinion. It never turns out well. 

This is Biden:

Biden is infinitely better to have in office than Trump taking everything into consideration. Any one is better. Its a low bar. However, lets not be deceived. Biden is going to be pretty much Obama 2.0 when it comes to foreign policy more or less. Some things I hope he continues that Obama did (being friendly with Cuba), other things I hope he ends like Guantanamo, and keeping troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

You speak the truth. This female Republican nutcase  from Georgia for example did not make any secret from her QAnon-support and more absolutely sick theories. Their voters said she stands for the values of their country. Which in case of Georgia  would probably mean cheap labour and slavery.

The near religious worship of Trump has nothing to do with ideology. The right has lost the ideological battle. They haven't won a popular vote in their first election they have won for President since 1988. Gen X and Gen Y are overwhelmingly progressive. Those generations embrace the term 'socialist'. 

The establishment Republicans still want to work within a system they are the minority in numbers wise. The election told us and more importantly them one thing. It doesn't matter how many of them vote, the Dems have more people and if the Dems are motivated to vote they will lose every time. 

What Trump represents to them is that they want to take their ball and go home. Since they can't win they want to destroy the system and either control it illegally, breaking any constitutional law in the process or carve out their own area within, where they have autonomy under the umbrella of the U.S. Sort of like the Kurds in northern Iraq. Technically part of Iraq but in reality an autonomous state. 

To the hard core Trump they are America. So breaking the constitution, the law, ethics and morals are okay because they are saving the country or themselves. I don't assume I know the inner workings of their mindset. I can only observe and make assumptions based on that. 

I do know this. Biden and the Dems are stupid as f*ck if they think they can reason, negotiate, or compromise with them. They are not honest actors. They will negotiate in bad faith. The Chinese could take lessons from them. And they know they are too many of them with the mindset that everyone else will have no choice but to deal with them. 

They have the cognitive dissonance to be great friends, family members, coworkers, neighbors and at the very same time cheer on the destruction of institutions. Nazis, Bolsheviks, militants, and child molesters were often described as great neighbors.

...and the Democrats make it easy to maintain that mindset because the Democrats themselves are broken. They are broken in the usual way that beseeches most political parties. Corrupt, but having a line. There are some things the Dems wont' do. There is literally nothing the far right won't do. 

The cognitive dissonance of the far right fringe will point to the Dems and say 'See?' and feel emboldened. It's proof they are on the right side when the Dems do it, its ignored when ever a prominent member of their side does it and does it worse past any line of decency. There is literally a tweet for everything Trump accused Obama of from 2008 to 2016 that he did himself often worse. Innocuous things such as tweeting about Obama's golf trips and Trump has taken more golf trips on record than any president ever. Their support will then, in gaslighting, circular argument say "No one said anything when Obama did it". 

The government infrastructure has many of these far right fringe members. Especially the military and law enforcement and with the Republican senate of the last 4 years,  now they are scores of judges as well. 

We are looking at the reincarnation of a broken Roman empire towards the end of its collapse.
