Why is the status quoe so afraid of Trump?

What are the career politicians so afraid of? Change? Real political change? Why else would they be staging these phony protests and trying to incite riots so they can accuse Trump. We are somewhere around 18 TRILLION DOLLARS in debt. This debt was created by career politicians that where more interested in selling us out instead of upholding, defending, and protecting the Constitution. Did you know that federal lands are held as collateral to pay off this debt? You should. How much would it cost YOU, right now, to pay off the lean holders on our country? You think your not responsibly?, think again. In other countries with DEBT, lean holders are taking TAKING money from peoples bank accounts to pay off the national debt. So, that is why I WILL NOT SUPPORT the status quoe. Time to wake up and see who is on the wrong side of the barbed wire fence.

Trump is a good start no doubt but we will never get anywhere until we get term limits on the lying cheats in office.

Well I certainly do NOT consider myself of the status quo or political establishment and I am defintely "scared" of Trumps brand of xenophobia and racism and bullying, not to mention his "pledge salute". Well not so ,much scared for myself, but scared for the future of this country. Hillary scares me almost as much as Trump. Cruz might well be scarier the Trump, if that is possible.

Of course, that leaves me as a Sanders supporter, just another "brand" of political outlier. But at least he has been honest and true to his message for almost 30 years, which you cannot say about ANY of the other candidates. Well, I gueess you could say it about Trump becuase he has been all about Trump for OVER 30 years, but that is NOT a political message. In fact, recent statistical analysis reveals that he lies every FIVE minutes that his mouth is open!!

Politico Analysis: Trump Averages 'One Misstatement Every 5 Minutes'

Of course, that is as likely true for Clinton or Cruz or ANY other establishment politician.

It's cool seafish, not everyone can understand how the world works.

You need a few token Liberals to make sure the kids know what they were.

BTW, you may want to compare Sanders words compared to Trump.......... Might surprise you if you look.

What are you guys smoking??? That video makes for some good TV but also makes ZERO sense and I dun graduated from college with honors and I am pretty sure my IQ is just slightly higher then a fence post…Sanders makes WAY more sense then Trump and doesn't lie near as much as either Trump or Cruz or Hillary, the other "front runners"

Sanders is 100% fully announced, proud of it socialist. Just in case you haven't heard, anywhere full blown socialism is tried it doesn't work. Sometimes it's possible to recover, but usually it decays into a "communist" totalitarian dictatorial government.

NO THANKS

Actually pretty sure that "the crack" is the Fox News you all are watching and even the radical AM radio programs that you are likely listening to.

Socialism and Communism ARE different…here is a simple but good read that explains the distinctions.

Communism vs Socialism - Difference and Comparison | Diffen

For those of you who don't want to, or perhaps just cannot, read, here is a brief video explanation of the difference. The narrator is certainly NOT as hot as the Judge above, but she explains things fairly clearly about "planned economies" and SOME of the differences between capitalism, socialism or communism.

And don't forget, even THIS very country we live in has a long history of social programs that made it great and even brought it out of the Great Depression.

Oh make no mistake we all understand perfectly what Socialism is... that is why we KNOW it is the death knell of a free Republic.

You are wasting your time trying to convert anyone here, many of us have witnessed it first hand and spilled blood fighting against it.

No Thanks!

I always considered myself a independent. But this election is something else. Sanders is a socialist with a touch of Communist. He should be running for political office in Denmark
Hillary, How is she not in jail??

I would love to see Trump/ Carson ticket

Have you heard of the 1920-21 depression? Warren Harding (R) inherited that mess, cut taxes, especially the "excess profit tax" on business, and blew that depression away in months. It was brief, but even deeper than the great depression. The resulting economic expansion is known as the roaring twenties.

Franklin Roosevelt (D) managed to "new deal" (read that socialism) the great depression till 1939, when the industrial effort of WWII ended it.

The "social engineers" consider socialism the first step from capitalism, with communism being the ultimate goal.

Social programs don't make a country great. The ingenuity, industry and goodness of it's citizens are what makes a country great.

When government creates an environment that discourages that, then everything goes into decline.
