Trump should declare he is an independent.
« on: July 31, 2017, 03:00:12 PM »
I think he would be at his best by attacking  both parties equally. He should also announce he will run as an independent  in 2020.

Why?  He can attack conservatives just fine as a Republican.

Trump would be better suited in attacking leftists in his own party, giving strength to those that support him those that despise the gop'E.
An Independent is a man without a home or allies and most important, a man without the backing of the party's purse come reelection.
You really should think these things through.

Isn't that what he's doing now?  He's attacking whom he needs to attack just fine without switching parties.  What advantage do you think he'd have as an Independent??

Did you just declare political incompetence....?     

I'll be sure to send those requests for Democrat help your way, they're always looking for  stupid   dumb   hair-brained   wild-ass   fresh ideas.   (Grammar corrector must be a Democrat too!)    You could be a big hit at parties too!   

Oh, wait, you must have worked for Debbie Whass-er-name-shultz, right?

Are you high?    Thought I'd ask, man, that must have taken several bowls to come up wit that crap...

That would be a dead end street. He does need the organization of an established party. He can still call out leftists within the party.

Along these same lines, it seems Rush has been reading this forum. He is 100% aligned with us that there is not a dime's difference between democrats and GOPe. Today, he spent a good bit of time on this.

I would listen to Rush more if he would label the problem as there are not enough conservatives in our government. I wish Trump would realize the same thing.

Observations and reflections.
After an severe Russian military defeat, Talleyrand observed that:
"It was far worse than a catastrophe; it was a mistake that great nations cannot make and remain great."
Currently, North Korea is on the boil, China is agitated plus Japan and South Korea are alarmed.
Russia appears resurgent in the Middle East while France, Germany and the UK sound estranged and indifferent.
Domestically, Obamacare repeal was scuttled by Republicans.
Given the hostility within the Congress what is the likelihood of immigration, regulatory and tax reform;
as well as the rest of the agenda of change ???
Trump's persona of bluster and bombast has been on daily display since January.
Is he our mistake?

Proof Rush killed off the majority of his listenership when he turned on Cruz. Rush also admitted he never claimed to be a Conservative.
Of course he's not, he's always been Ailes mouthpiece for the Establishment, but now that Ailes is out, Rush is out there all alone and trying to regain a bit of credibility.
Fuck em, he stabbed us in the back!

I would say he is the MSM mistake along with the crossover voters. 
Along with the GOP that put up all the people running. 

I for one voted for Ted Cruz.   I must say Trump is doing a lot more then I gave him credit for being a RINO.

Trump is a liberal.  He's not going to change his stripes but I truly believe he was sick and tired of all the crap that was/is destroying this country (and ultimately affecting his wallet). I have been surprised by some of his actions; his display of patriotism at his pre-inauguration events, Syrian missile strike, his appointment of Gorsuch, his dealing with illegals, etc.  It is obvious that the GOPe is out to derail his presidency.  Trump is far from stupid; he sees what's going on.  IMHO his biggest downfall so far is not knowing the functionality of government and he quickly is learning that running a government is different than running a business.

I quit listening to Rush as well as Hannity when they didn't back Cruz.  There is no going back for me.

Interestingly enough if the media thought he might ensure a dem win they would all of a sudden give him glowing  coverage. I also think he could win with 35-40% of the vote.

The big advantage would be that he could win in 2020 with 35-40% of the vote. I really wish a new party could gain access to all states and challenge the reps and dems. Ina 3 way race with all Trump supporters supporting Trumps new party they could  pick up alot  of  congressional seats.

We already have a Dim as Potus the libs helped elect him, how is a Dim going to draw the Conservative caucus away from the gop'E?
