    Schmidt, I can see Trump taking over the debate. Like the moderator. He has established himself as the supreme being. I cannot fathom him going to a debate and subjecting himself to the control of people he had already classified as liars. If he is asked a revealing or controversial question he will turn it around. His supporters are dying to see him take over a debate. Watch “Where’s My Roy Cohn” to see evil Roy and then see Trump falling exactly in his footsteps is really unbelievable.

    Throughout Hillary’s campaign I sent emails indicating that attacking Trump is the wrong way to go because it builds and firms his supporters. The best way to campaign against Trump is to show how Democratics are the ones that can carry out his promises which are actually Democratic standards.
    Now Bernie who has been my candidate from the start is attacking Trump vehemently. All that does is firms or builds support for Trump. I said in the 2016 election that people were lying to pollster because they didn’t want to admit supporting Trump. Now all Democratic front runners are polling to beat Trump. Don’t believe it. Attacking Trump is preaching to the choir. We already have the votes that recognize how bad Trump is. We need other votes. Swing votes, undecided and new voters. Since those are uncommitted votes then it means Trump hasn’t yet offended them. What will commit them to Trump is attacking Trump. Right now I don’t see anybody beating Trump unless his 85 to 90% Republican support starts to fall. Trump has a majority of Americans saying they are better off now. If we want to win then our candidate will have to campaign how much better Democratics can make it. Attacking Trump won’t work. He himself already says and shows how bad he is and they love it.

    “Where is My Roy Cohn” shows the self promoting evil and lying of Roy Cohn. And when the documentary shifts to Trump and his evil lying behavior it is exactly the same as Cohn’s. Well worth it to watch and see to what extent Trump acts as a deficient personality.

    Money came into existence to facilitate the trading of goods and services. That some people violate the intent of money and use predatory opportunistic practices to remove money from the system should be identified as illegal .

    In view of what Schmidt wrote I would add contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile.

    Schmidt Wrote: Okay, this narrative that Trump could defy the Supreme Court is a stretch. Unlikely, but perhaps plausible. We've discussed before Trump's own analogy that he could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with it. If Trump really believes that then anything is possible.

    I hate to admit it, but I think it's less of a stretch than it was before the impeachment hearings where we saw House Republicans regurgitating Russian propaganda and excusing Donald's extortion as just Trump being Trump.

    Senate Republicans aren't going to convict Donald no matter how egregious his crimes are. That is dangerous with someone like Donald who already is convinced he's above the law.

    What worries me most is what happens after the Senate basically rubber stamps his treasonous behavior. All gloves will be off then.

    I hope the complete breakdown of our Constitutional democracy was worth it for all those Bernie or busters in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.

    “all those Bernie or busters in Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania.”

    While I was saying Trump was a formidable candidate and needed to be campaigned against like he could win others were wishing he would be the candidate cause he would be wiped out.
    He is still that dangerous and formidable and needs to be looked at in those terms. He can’t do anything wrong in the eyes of his supporters.
    He will do whatever crosses his mind without regard to anything.

    I think a case of child abuse can be made against Trump. All his lies are teaching kids that lying is acceptable. He will be responsible for a generations distorted view of reality.

Congratulations America you got what you wanted. Is n't time to educate the people here what Trump is all about?
    Dutch, Joy Behar on the View just said “We are living in a Banana Republic”.

    Thanks Arizona and thanks Schmidt!

    Schmidt, I went to your 2011 link. I’ve spent the last 3 hours going over that thread and it is remarkable. I think all 22 posts should be collected and deemed required reading.

    The danger in our current situation is certain people will realize monumental gains from a collapse. The reality is most people are expecting monumental gains. Somebody here I believe described people in general as believing they are all millionaires with a cash flow problem counting on the big day coming.
    My favorite saying is:”Intuitively obvious to the most casual observation.” The current situation seems to exhibit like that except so very few see it. The right seems to win the propaganda war probably borne by their selfish paranoid defensiveness. They can turn any notion of fairness or opportunity into a vile attack. If the effort and money spent to falsify the stock market were spent on creating a product and production “Happy days would be here again”. And those at the top worried about losing anything would actually gain more.

    Not unsimilar to Electoral College results. Didn’t hear how many or if any coin tosses decided delegates.
