    Mr.Trump announced his plan for ISIS; he wants to invade again and eradicate them and then take their oil. Wow this sounds like Bush all over again.

    6000 dead soldiers is thus not enough, let alone the trillions of cost for our fantastic continuing wars, which never have solved anything, except that they hate our guts even more. Hitler would be proud of this guy.

    Sorry, this guy belongs in the nut-house, not someone running for president.

    The thing that stuck out to me is that he only said something that Republicans believe but would never say publicly. We all knew Bush invaded Iraq for the oil, but he had to use the guise of being freedom fighters saving a downtrodden population from an out of control tyrant. At least Trump is honest about it...I'll give him that.

    Trump on an interview said that the Vatican will be taken over by ISIS . He said also the Pope ( who said something about capitalism not being good for the average middle class etc.) should be realizing that capitalism is good. Sure, the Pope is not stupid in that respect; they are the first who had their cathedrals built with slave labor as well stole all the gold they could get. Furthermore their assets are enormous worldwide. So he knows all about capitalism and Trump should be wiser to know what the Pope knows about that.

    What is wrong with this country? It thrives on fear mongering with everything. Trump takes full advantage of this. Just saw Bernie who said in this country we use war as a first resort not as a last resort. The same as with drone use (he copied one of my mails) stating that drones do more harm than good in most cases; people will hate us only more. The only thing Trump has going for him is his big mouth; reality is far from his bed. The only one who makes sense is Bernie; too bad he's a not a big body builder with an huge voice.

    The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

    I stumbled on a note yesterday that claimed that Donald Trump's grandfather owned a brothel ..

    as it turns out, Donald's grandfather Friedrich Drumpf changed his name to Fred Trump after emigrating from Germany

    after working in New York City for a few years, he moved to Seattle and opened a restaurant that served both food and "other services", which were provided by women who are sometimes known as "soiled doves"

    when the Alaska Gold Rush started, he moved north to Alaska, and opened another restaurant, whose "menu " was similar to the "menu" provided by the location in Seattle

    he moved back to New York City, and in 1905, Fred Jr.(Donald's father ) was born

    Fred Jr. made a fortune in New York real estate, which the Donald inherited .. a large part of Fred Jr's success was actually due to financing provided by the Federal government, which allowed him to leave his son an inheritance between $40 million and $200 million

    since taking over his father's empire in 1974, the businesses owned by Trump have filed bankruptcy 4 times, further proof that the Donald is simply carrying on a family legacy of ...

    screwing people for money ..

    like the majority of the other members of the Republican clown care, he is not in favor of gay marriage, because it "destroys the sanctity of marriage"" .. Donald, of course, has been married three times ...

    Trump had no plans other than self-promotion. He loves the notoriety and had no real plans or ideas other than to sell himself. His supporters are the dumbest of the dumb and represent the worst form of American voters.

    as PT Branum said "There's a sucker born every minute" and Trump attracts them all!

    But even if Trump falls by the way side, then we still have all the other evangelical tea party nut heads. So then the circus will get even funnier, because if Trumps formula made some headway they other clowns certainly want to copy some of it. The end is still not in sight but could become an ugly one. Just don't forget the tricks used to get Bush elected; they likely have invented new tricks to get that same result. I don't see Hillary do anything about it; she's floating somewhere but has not got the stamina nor personality to fight things head on. Sorry but she disappoints me more and more. A "softie" as they say.

    trumps supporters are those he has deliberately targeted although his big mouth and bigger ego play a role. what drives his rhetoric and his supporters is changing demographics. white people, particularly wealthy white people, will eventually be unable to wield enough influence over the political economy. it won't happen now or likely in 10 years but as time moves on it will happen. fear of this change and the changes brought about by this change are the underlying foundation of the rhetoric. ask yourself why the rw social conservative has bleated about roe v wade yet for 40+ years not one republican has managed to get it overturned. yes, on a state level they are making some strives in some places and as such should be fought but on the national stage it has served merely as a device to bring out the base. the same applies with fake welfare queen (read: black) stories etc. they are simply techniques to drive the base to keep business as usual meaning BUSINESS as usual: lack of regulation, union destruction, privatization etc ad nauseum ad infinitum. the social issue conservative is a useful idiot full of sound and fury and most importantly fear signifying nothing.

    Getting back to the original subject; Trump's ISIS plan, then my view on this is totally different. I still am wondering what the danger is from ISIS to us. They will never attack us as an army, neither will any other country. We have the biggest nuclear arsenal in the world and can flatten the whole middle east. Also it should be the job of all the surrounding Muslim countries to keep ISIS in check. Furthermore every one here has a gun; so if an ISIS person knocks on your door you know what to do. Because of our nuclear deterrent, we can get rid of most of the Pentagon and just employ a small efficient force to act only if anyone like terrorists groups attacks us. Thus all the fear that a "country" will attack us is pure B.S. If there is ever an WWIII, then a conventional force is doomed anyway, because of the "nukes" Let's take care of our own country first; quit seeing "ghosts" all over and spent the money saved on infrastructure and things to make life better for everyone here.
