Sweet Home Chicago Stops A Trump Rally!

I grew up in a suburb about 10 minutes from Chicago called River Grove. I lived in the city of Chicago as an adult for a short time with my family. I have never been prouder of my city after watching the protestors stop a Trump rally, pretty impressive Chicago. The only problem was the violence, that is completely uncalled for. Hate makes people pretty heated and crazy. I can’t believe what’s happening. If you’re going to protest something you can’t be violent, no matter what the opposition says.

I have seen some insane comments from family, friends, and strangers. The majority of my family and friends are in Chicago or the vicinity. Some of my family and friends were praising the protestors, happy to stop the hate the Trump rallies bring. Most not condoning the violence, but happy no one was seriously injured and Trump was stopped. We do live in a free country and Donald Trump should be allowed to speak, even if a large majority of it is hate. We have that right to say what we want, that is why I’m allowed to write this today.

Comments from an NBC news post.                                      NBC News Who Does Wall Street Wants To Be President

 

Trump was able to go on stage he chose not to. “I spoke with law enforcement and made [the call to cancel] in conjunction with law enforcement, and I think we made a wise decision,” Trump said in a phone interview on MSNBC. He was afraid for his safety it had nothing to do with the Chicago police department in a statement Chicago Police Department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told the Associated Press that the department did not recommend Trump call off the event and said they had sufficient manpower to cover the rally. Guglielmi said that the decision to shut down the event was made “independently” by the Trump campaign.

Some of my family and a few friends support Donald Trump. The reason I’ve been given by some for supporting this insane billionaire is “he speaks the truth”. They love the fact that he is uncandid and says what he feels and what he wants. Anyone who supports Donald Trump hates President Obama. Many have said “He’s not a pussy like Obama” or “No one will fuck with us if he’s our President.” for why they support this barbarian. Some supporters are angry with the Republican Party. They look at this as a slap in the GOP’s face.

I decided to take it to social media. I contacted a Trump supporter and a Democrat to look at the differences. I asked the same basic questions. Here are the answers I received. I decided to leave both parties anonymous even though they both agreed to be public. I do not know either of these people personally.

Who will or who did you vote for in the primary election?

Trump Supporter: “Michigan already had its primary and I voted for Donald Trump.”

Democrat: “I am ………, retired professor, and I plan to vote in the Pennsylvania primary as a Democrat. I support both Senator Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton. Our primary is not an early one, and so I have not yet made a final ballot box choice.”

What makes your chosen candidate/party the choice for you?GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

Trump Supporter:

“I have several reasons I will list them out. 1. I believe that there isn’t any other candidate that understands the global economy like he does. The others have ideas on it but ZERO experience in it.

2. Trump is right our current trade deals are all in favor of other countries and have created jobs in other countries and not in the US.
3. Trumps business tax plan is enticing for businesses to start investing in America again and not other countries
4. I like the fact to go along with his lower business tax plan he will also imply tariffs on good brought into this country in order to force fair and equal trade. I have been to other countries and finding something there that is American made is damn near impossible.
5. Trump is right about other countries making their currency fluctuate which causes US jobs to be outsourced to other countries. Let me give you a perfect example of this. 4 years ago a friend of mine was hired into an Automotive OEM and his job was to localize sourcing parts to be made here in the US to build the vehicles (if you check 4 years ago the currency of the other countries was more on par with the US dollar). Now he is tasked with outsourcing the parts to be made in other countries because the cost is cheaper.
6. Trump is also right about the illegals flooding our country. The illegals cost this country billions per year in services intended for American citizens. Also since they work for cheaper labor it suppresses wages from going up.”

Democrat: “I believe that only the two Democratic candidates have the moral and intellectual seriousness and good will to serve. The Republican candidates seem to me unqualified — and worse.”
Do you normally vote, and if so what party do you normally lean toward when voting?GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480
Trump Supporter:

“Yes I normally vote in elections because I want our country to be great and it can only do that if the right leadership is in place. As for which party I normally vote republican or libertarian.

I believe in holding our elected officials accountable
After all they work for us. However it seems today that both the democrats and republicans seem to treat us like we work for them”
Do you always vote for the Democratic Party?
voteblue
Democrat: “Yes, starting with John F. Kennedy in 1960.”
I asked both people what they thought of the other parties “extreme” candidate.
What do you think of Bernie Sanders?
GettyImages-501134410-trump-supporter-640x480

Trump Supporter: 

“I have a lot to post on this so I will do it in pieces. I don’t think very highly of Bernie Sanders. I think Sanders if gathering supporters by promising “free stuff” (college, healthcare, etc..). Sanders tax plan is extremely punitive in nature as the more successful you are the more his plan punishes you with higher taxes. We currently have a system like that in place now but Sanders plan is much worse and as somebody in the top tax bracket under Sanders plan I would pay another $17k a year in taxes.
Sanders is a socialist and socialism has failed in all other countries. Socialism creates a culture of laziness.
Sanders proposed business tax plan would drive even more businesses out of this country. I read his plan and then I have read some reviews on it and several analyst have said his plan would cause a -9.5% GDP. For those who though 2008 economy was bad that is nothing compared to -9.5% GDP.
Also I heard and read Sanders comments about the violence in Chicago yesterday that shut down a Trump rally. Trump isn’t to blame for that as his supporters weren’t the ones being violent until they were attacked….. That comment pushing people to continue to do the same thing at other Trump rallies made me lose all respect for Bernie.”
What do you think of Donald Trump?
voteblue
Democrat: “Donald Trump, who seems to me a clever narcissist and a con man, has called up some of the worst forces in America — bigotry, hatred, violence, xenophobia, racism, homophobia. His supporters are at least as scary as he is.”
Just because I can I will disprove all of the Trump Supporters claims….
1. & 2. Trump trades with countries we shouldn’t be trading with such as China and Mexico. He has his products made by slave labor. He is not making his own products in the US why would we trust him with everything.
3. & 4.  reasons why he supported Trump was the tax plan and money issue. Unfortunetly for him they’re all bad ideas according to anylasts and fact check.
5. This is the same as the other two reasons really. I think what our young supporter is talking about is the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership. This is what Bernie Sanders is trying to get rid of as well, but he’s called a communist for wanting to do the same thing.

 

You can decide for yourself who you are voting for, but spreading fear and hatred in either party is not the answer. The protests are great if they’re not violent. There has been violence at many political rallies recently and that’s just sad. If people can not discuss politics without beating the shit out of each other we’re no better than Taiwan.

Super Tuesday Results.

Csupertuesday

Super Tuesday voting is over and the votes are being counted. It’s funny how the delegates make the election. Only 1% of the votes are counted yet, candidates win. Why do we bother to vote? I’m starting to feel the way many Americans feel.

Super Tuesday!

So it’s Super Tuesday, it’s been talked about for weeks and it’s finally here. For those who do not know, Super Tuesday is the day that 12 states vote in the primary election. The first Super Tuesday was back in 1988. It was started to promote and draw attention to the southern candidates. This day doesn’t always pick the winner however, it can’t hurt to do well. This is a big day in the Presidential Election, this separates the weak from the strong. This can be a game changer in both the Democratic and Republican Primaries. There are many factors here, home state advantage, voter turnout, and delegate votes.

The only candidate running with a home state advantage is Ted Cruz. If Ted wins Texas he will continue his fight for the White House. If he loses, he will walk away with his tail between his legs. We will see if he loses and actually walks away. The man seems to have as big of an ego as Trump.

Super-Tuesday

Voter turnout is a big one in this election. It seems more Republicans have been voting in this election, many claim it’s because of Donald Trump. It does make sense. He is the Republican front runner and claims to be anti-establishment. For the Democrats it means more votes, many of the southern states are Red, which means a lower turnout than the Republicans will have. The more voters for the Democrats the better, there have been claims that if Bernie Sanders has a high voter turnout he can win. We will see how it stacks up after today.

The delegates are a big thing, but in order to run on the Presidential ticket when you are a Democrat, you need at least 2,383 delegates. There are 4,130 delegates total. Not all delegates pick a team, there are delegates that wait to decide their chosen candidate candidate. For the Republicans in order to run on the ticket, they need 1,237 delegates out of a total count of 2,339 delegates. Currently (prior to Super Tuesday) the Delegate counts are as follows.


Clinton-548

Sanders-87

Trump-82

Cruz-17

Rubio-16

Kasich-6

Carson-5

Democrats counts contain super delegates which is consists of all Democratic members of Congress, all Democratic governors, members of the Democratic National Party, former Democratic presidents and vice presidents, and other key party members. Superdelegates are free to vote as they wish. The last-minute superdelegates played a huge role in Obama getting the nomination over Clinton back in 2008.

The winner of Super Tuesday on either side has not always won the election.Michael Dukakis won as the Super Tuesday front runner in 1988. In 1992, Bill Clinton was the first candidate to win all of the southern states. Mitt Romney won 6 out of the 10 super states in 2012 and still lost the election. The point is it’s anyone’s game even after this is over. Super Tuesday results should be in sometime tonight. May the best candidate win!

What The Fuck Democrats!?!?

I’m truly afraid for my children. This election is going to ensure a psycho like Donald Trump ends up in the oval office. I will always vote Democrat, but I’m ashamed of my fellow liberals right now who refuse to. Donald Trump winning this election will result in eventual mass hysteria.

AB898F81-4833-41A1-9D69-A4322EC90789

So Bernie supporters won’t vote for Hillary if she wins the Primary. Hillary supporters won’t vote for Bernie if he wins the election. Really people? You need to compromise, Hillary and Bernie would BOTH be better than any Republican candidate running. Let’s not act like the Republicans, we’re all adults behave accordingly.

maxresdefault

As much as I support Bernie and believe in him. I know Hillary will do a better job than any Republican. Sure, she has more sponsors than a Nascar Driver, as bad as I know she will be for our country, she will not be  any worse than Donald Trump or God forbid Ted Cruz.

If a Democrat does not win the Presidential Election, say goodbye to many programs that are vital to our country. They will defund planned parenthood, reverse gay marriage, reverse Rowe Vs Wade, cut food stamps, cut medicare, basically cut anything that helps people. I still can’t understand how anyone like that can consider themselves pro-life. They are SO not pro-life, the death penalty is something they love. They are pro-birth with no care or thought of the quality of life after birth. That is not pro-life, that’s the most hypocritical thing I’ve ever seen.

I know I can’t change everyone’s mind on voting or not voting for someone. Hopefully, I get through to one person and it would be worth the time. We vote for what we want, many people are afraid of Bernies proposed policies, as many are afraid of Clintons. Bernie.jpg

Bernie scares Clinton supporters with his  “Socialism” talk. Sanders is not trying to make the US a Communist country. He wants to add to current programs in place. When Bernie says he’s a Democratic Socialist, he is basically saying he agrees with social programs which are already in place. Social programs consist of things like The US Mail Service, Police Departments, Fire Departments, roads, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, etc.  He want’s to give everyone free healthcare, he wants everyone to have the opportunity to go to college without massive student loans. How is this a bad thing? He never mentions taxing to pay for this. He’s going to be like Robin Hood, taking from the rich (Wall Street) and giving to the poor (everyone else).

Hillary_Clinton_official_Secretary_of_State_portrait_crop.jpg

Hillary scares Bernie supporters because of her record, her lies, and her flip flops from only 8 years ago. Hillary is a typical politician, she lies, cheats, and I’m sure steals to get what she wants. I do not care for her, but that doesn’t mean I won’t vote for her. As much as I like the idea of telling the DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee) to go fuck themselves and vote for Trump, I will NEVER do that. I refuse to act like a Republican baby if I don’t get my way. That’s what they want, they want the pissed off Democrats. Why do you think Trump is running? He doesn’t need the power or the money. Hillary may lie, but she will be better for our country than any Republican running for President.

1950

 

If you choose not to vote at all, don’t bitch about politics, because you only did it to yourself. Please wake up Democrats! Vote Democrat no matter what! This election is extremely important. A republican win means we go back in time. They will make this country look like 1950 again. I guarantee it. A woman especially has the most to lose with a Republican win.

 

Bernie vs. Trump

bernie trump

This is the debate I want to see after this primary nonsense is over Bernie Sanders vs. Donald Trump. That is who it should be, and I know Bernie can beat Trump. The Republican Debate was like watching a bunch of grown ass babies duking it out over bullshit. I’ve never seen anything more pathetic. Then randomly Ben Carson says something and everyone says, “What in the fuck?” I am convinced that son of a bitch is on some high-grade LSD, he actually asked if someone could attack him. I’ve never seen such a circus in my life. Ted Cruz, Donald Trump, and Marco Rubio were embarrassing. I would hold my head down in shame if I was a Republican. Bernie and Trump are looking like the top runners.

Donald-Trump-Fake-Campaign-998x666

 

Donald Trump has everyone pissed off, it’s quite funny actually. The RNC is up in arms, they won’t truly back a candidate because they’re afraid of him. I’ve never seen anything like that in politics. He has no real qualifications to be the President yet people are still voting for him. He’s a great salesman, he loves to sell himself and he knows how to do it. He knows how to appeal to “the poorly educated” voters. I’ve posted it before, Donald Trump only tells the truth 1% of the time. He has yet to come up with a real political plan. He just seems to wing it, he wants Obama Care gone, but never really says what he’s going to do other than privatizing insurance. That sure has worked well in the past. It’s pretty clear that Trump is going to win in many states.

bernie-sanders

Bernie Sanders is not backed or liked by any party or media outlet. It’s the people that want him. The people that will vote. The delegates need to get on board with the people. Very few Bernie supporters will come out and vote if Hillary is the nominee. Some will even vote for Trump. Bernie has a clear platform of exactly what he wants to do. The main thing is to overturn Citizens United, which will fix more problems than many know. It will for one stop this obscene amount of campaign funds that make everything about money. It’s legal money laundering, you can read more about Citizens United here….Dangers of Citizen United

Scared-Face

Poll if Hillary Clinton gets the democratic nomination will you vote for Hillary…..

13%Yes
25%No
13%Undecided
49%I’ll write in Bernie
This is not good, this means the Republicans will win, we can NOT have that. I can’t even imagine what this country will look like with Donald Trump in charge. It scares the hell out of me quite frankly. If you thought George W Bush was bad Trump will be a nightmare.
The fact that Trump is winning all of these states really tells the government to go fuck themselves, that is something I agree with. Same with Bernie, if this becomes between the two oddballs Americans will get what they want.
 DSC_0025_0
People want change in all directions, just maybe, a different kind of change. I’m not sure what Republicans want I can’t even get down to that level intellectually. They’re fucked in the head, that’s pretty much what I have learned dealing with the hardcore Conservatives. I have family and friends that are not quite as bad, I jusually don’t speak politics with family and friends if I want to remain on good terms. We all have our own opinion on what makes for good government and what we want from our leaders. If we all get on board together as Americans and voters we can do this.
change-20272_640
Change won’t happen in this election alone, we need to vote across the board. We need to stop some of these career politicians that keep progress down and never leave. If they haven’t done anything yet chances are they’re just filling a seat. Don’t get confused this election is extremely important, especially to keep Trump out of the oval office. He can not be our President. I hope everyone turns up for the general election and they understand that.
