Maybe not everyone sees him in that light. Maybe not everyone shares you're point of view

Love how some people are posting their support on the Obamacare repeal because "don't need it, it was a failure - I already have insurance under the ACA" showing they're stupid enough to not understand Obamacare is a nickname Republicans gave to ACA (Affordable Care Act) to make it "that Presiden'ts thing".

 

When they realise they won't have "Obamacare" anymore...

Stan: I play an mmorpg called world of warcraft except this is on a private vanilla server (Nostalrius) this means you generally get a large amount of diversity as it's a world wide server. I can tell you that there are those who openly support Trump in our guild (we talk over team speak) having talked to them for many hours on end while leveling about the political point of view I can say from what I know about them they are not deplorables or scum rather people do not feel connected with the current political establishment, who want a better future for the children with more jobs in there country. How far are you going to get with these people by calling them scum?

 

 

 

 

 

Can't help myself.....

 

If they support Trump I don't actually care about their supposed reasons - and I don't know them so I don't know if they are scum - however, if they voted for him - then they accept/tolerate/promote a man who has demonstrated some of the worst possible attitudes and behaviours during the campaign, prior to the campaign and now as he gets ready to become POTUS.

 

This includes sexist, misogynistic, racist, ignorant, rapey, childish, thin-skinned, vindictive, emotive, self-aggrandizing, blow-hard, entitled, nepotistic, cronyism, treasonous and someone who engages in half truths/untruths and out right lying.

 

All of this through his own behaviours, words and actions - he is not Presidential material - HE IS SCUM and dangerous - and I worry about what he/America will do over the next 4 years and what this will mean for all of us.

Stan: What was the alternative?

 

A person who didn't exhibit all of these awful behaviours and pose anywhere near the threat to global stability and safety?

I actually disagree with that
Hillary would have escalated tentions with Russia she said as much I can post links when I'm not on my mobile.

Also she did lie a fair amount as did flip on alot of issues depending on the audience she spoke to

Isnt this a pirated copy of an early version of the game?

 

Hasnt Blizzard tried to shut this down several times?

 

Advertising you use this server and quote what your fellow guildies say is deplorable in itself. Some folk here would call people scum who openly breach copyright and advertise the fact.

Look if you want to attack me on my choice to play on a private vanilla world of warcraft server I would suggest creating another thread this is not related to the election.

Right. But the only alternative available was Hillary Clinton.

She is nowhere near the awfulness of DT even with her flaws.

It depends.. from an environmental point of view I agree.
But I think she would have been worse for global stability.

People were a bit tired of the Clintons, they have been spread over our television screens for many years. Hilary was also subject to massive false news campaigns from certain quarters and the statement from the FBI a few days out from the election sealed her fate.

This is what gets me - why do they think that Trump can or will bring a better future for their children? The only reason to think that is if you both blindly believe his unsubstantiated rhetoric AND willfully ignore all the experts who can tell you what he has proposed is impossible. 

 

And that is ignoring the fact that his is a total scumbag of a human being, which I continue to be perplexed that people can disagree with. It's like standing outside of a clear sunny day and saying "The sky is blue", and someone trying to suggest it is nothing of the sort.
