Set back for Trump?
« on: February 02, 2016, 01:23:05 PM »
Has Trump peaked and now retire to a farm in Canada?

Trump came in second when all the experts predicted he would never even make 10%. No, he's just getting wound up and ready to go.

Trump reminds me of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" soliloguy:

'Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.' -- Macbeth

I see a lot of sound and fury from The Donald, but I fail to see a grand plan or real substance in his campaign.  The thrust of his message seems too much like "HOPE" and "CHANGE".  We've had 9 dreary years of that nonsense.

Agreed.  But to get elected you need to be vague and ambiguous.  That way people can project whatever they want to believe about you.  As soon as you say something concrete you're out of the race... :)

Even if Trump does not get nominated, he forced a lot of discussion the others would rather have run from during the primary process. He brought back to the forefront that our borders have not been secured, although funds and plans were put in place after the 9/11 attacks.That"s 15 years of "Nothing" being done to secure our borders and our sovereignty.
 They have done more to make travel restrictive for law abiding citizens than they have that would cross our borders unlawfully.

Exactly.  and there is no excuse for making the same mistake.  We had Obamas record and it was ignored.  We have Trumps record and we ignore it, we are truly doomed.
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
