RE: America needs Trump.
So I had the idea today to make my own hat that says "Make America Racist Again, Trump 2016" and wear it around Walmart to see what reaction I get. I'm not going to in reality, but some of you crazy bitches should. Evil_monster

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

What do you mean, 'again'?

Read his hat with the word "great" instead of "racist" and I'll ask you the same question. Dodgy

edit: Okay, let me clarify that now that I'm on my laptop and can type. That comment comes off like Zeke, but I'm not yearning for Japan just yet. America is great....in a lot of ways. I love America, I do think we're a great country.

However, when Trump puts "Make America Great Again" on a hat, the connotation is that we were once an awesome, perfect nation that was the shining light in the world. That's just not true. We've had our great moments, but we've never been the shining example of excellence that you'd think we were if you took what our elementary grade text books say about us to be true.

There's this notion among the right wing that we used to be the greatest country on earth. I think it stems from the time in years past that we were the most powerful country on earth. Might makes right, it's the American way. We used to have the might, so of course we had the right. Makes sense in a 'Murica sort of way. We "used to be great".

Trump want us to be "great" again, meaning he wants us to use our power to push everyone else in the world around and get what we want no matter what consequence it means for anyone else. That would be fine by me if what America actually stood for in actual practice was actually good for anyone else but America. But history shows that it's not, and current events reflect that fact now more than ever if you care to really consider what effects our country has had on the world.

For Trump, and lots of deluded and uninformed and/or uncaring American public, great=powerful, and powerful=right. That's all that matters to them.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

I keep mentally finishing it as "America needs Trump....like it needs a hole in the head."

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I think America needs him just to get people to sit up and notice some of the putrid stances the GOP endorses but normally has the common sense to only discuss with dog whistle language.

The GOP is demographically dying and it knows this. It only stays relevant on a national level past 2020 if it expands it's base by at least pretending not to be racist. So, someone like Trump getting big numbers in the polls might be just what the GOP needs to actually moderate itself on some of its stances.
