    Right now they are fixing "shelters" all over in CA to "hide" illegals which are going "underground" because of Trump. He especially targets CA, because they voted Democratic.

    It is not different than in WWII ; my parents hid Jews on their property, which did cost their lives. It is not different right now; Trump boasted he would remove them "military style".

    On top of that he wants to increase our nuclear arsenal so we have the "most" of it in the world. In other words, so he can use that as an dictator tool to intimidate the "world" to get it his way, or else

    Yes this is Hitler all over again; be warned America this is not an joke. It is getting worse by the day. Please wake up America.

    Russia currently has 7,300 nuclear warheads. The United States only has 6,970. In other words, if we go to war with Russia, they have the advantage of dropping 330 more nuclear bombs on us. So Trump will up the anti so we can drop more nuclear bombs on them...carpet bomb them. Russia is 80 percent bigger geographically than the USA so maybe we should have 80 percent more nuclear bombs (about 13000). Make sense? He'll even put Rick Perry in charge to make it happen.

    This is the mind of Donald Trump. And he holds the codes to pull the trigger.

    Okay, that's a fairy tail, but it puts a reality check on Trump's statement. Absurd....or maybe insane.

    Illegal = not legal = its a crime

    I hope they all get scared, go home and then all of them come back through legalized immigration. If they want to be US citizens, that's the way. If they don't, leave, because they're breaking the law.

    Remember what Obama said

    I agree there is a lot of similarities that are scary\stupid, but I am confident that its temporary and he will be either forced out office (scandal) or decide not to run for another term (he doesn't like being president).

    While there maybe a small faithful\blind followers that would help build gas cambers if Trump were to say "We putting people back to work by building a new kind of public showers that uses gas instead of water"... The vast majority of Americans would demand he be removed from office long before he had the type of power. 280 million american would be appalled watching on the evening news as families, with crying little kids are rounded by SWAT like task force, M16s pointed at their heads with Trump tweeting "Ignore the fake news of those so-called kids crying, they're hired circus midgets"

    Overall, there are too many checks in place, organizations that make sure those checks are enforced, to allow the US to become into military state where the President power becomes unlimited.

    You really have an ax to grind against undocumented immigrants. Have you ever even spoken with one? Or is your hatred against them so deep that seeing a Hispanic on the street makes you want to deport them yourself regardless of their legal status?

    Do you support dividing families? What if the mother is an undocumented immigrant but her two children born in the United States are citizens? What if she stays in a broken marriage because she is afraid to go to the police out of fear that she will be deported and lose her children? Do you have any sympathy for her or does your hatred run so deep that even she doesn't deserve your sympathy?

    What about a child who was brought into the United States when he was two years old and America is the only country he has ever known? Should he be deported to a country he has never stepped foot in?

    Does the United States have the right to just dump people in other countries without permission from that country's government?

    Seriously man. You just have such blind hatred in your heart against "the other." Just an FYI - the vast majority of Hispanics in the United States are citizens and they have the same rights as the rural hicks who suck off the teat of the Federal government more than any immigrant ever will.

    Excellent Jared! I saw an "clip" on Facebook where an original Indian asked when Trump would be deported, because Trump's fore fathers stole Indian lands and murdered them. As well Trump wants to run an "pipeline" through the tiny piece of land "just for profit"on which the "original" habitants of this country still live. Sounds similar to his "oil" grabbing statement.

    He is attacking the foundations of our society. The media , minorities civil discourse. He lies constantly. What we are witnessing is a coup. And all these Republicans who are going along are also guilty of treason. They are white supremist. The alt right. These people are monsters.

    This whole thing is like living in a horror movie. My whole life I watched these movies ,read books learned all about what happened in Europe when the new world order enabled Adolph Hitler murder millions of people. I was offended by the movement to deny the holocaust .I read and watched so many books and movies. I've seen all of this before.

    I watched the election of Ron Reagon in 1979 as a 20 year old student. I knew they had colluded with Iran and I was stunned and terrified by the calls to bomb Iran by supposed adults like John macain. I knew and I was just a kid. I knew it was starting . I saw the trending. They then dismantled the FCC and attacked labor unions.

    While the democrats party fell apart. Or we deliberately destroyed fr om within. They stupidly allowed the Republicans to attack the foundations of our government. The laws that protect us from corporate greed.

    Now that they have spent 25 years blowing smoke through the right wing noise machine Americans don't know what's right and what is wrong.

    They are moving very fast. You don't take your time when you are taking over a government .You move fast. Soon they will begin mass arrests of protestors, journalist, anyone that does not agree. It's coming .

    Yes these are dangerous times. The only hope I have that the "control" elements built into the Constitution actually work.

    My problem with the system here is the "two" party system, as well antiquated laws like the "Electoral College" which no one seems to want to delete. In 1800 they were not aware of population growth in coastal area's like California ; thus things are totally out of wack. Furthermore as I've said an million times that this country is an arrogant "island" lacking international education. The CEO's invited by Trump said that they have enough job positions but could not fill them because no one has the skills needed. That is why the Trump regime is so stupid because those skills are available via immigration, because in other parts of the world they are better educated or have the skill levels needed; I got here because they needed my skills. Education is the main driver for people to be able to think rational and analytic However on this "island" they refuse to copy things which do work in other countries.

    Also I think the "cost" of schooling here is an problem; schools are way to involved with sports instead of "learning". The curriculum is way to "narrow"; they never learn here to think about the "big" picture; they are more detail oriented.

    Thus as long as "education" here is "weak' compared to other countries, it will also affect the voting, because using the right education, then the "deplorables" will be able to think about "cause and effect". Especially in the "rural" area's the schooling needs an total revamp. Also don't forget that the "churches" as well the "military" are the wrong elements for education Those entities teach the wrong things and indoctrinate the brain (blocking an open mind), because they see people as "tools" only to get it their way.
