Not ignoring your earlier posts but im just short on time at the moment.
This is a moment to ask what happens when a political party or a country cease to choose a person to lead a platform of ideas and ideals and instead allow themselves to be fully consumed by an individual.
I really think you put too much stock in Trump. He cant be a mastermind and a idiot. I think many republicans focus on Trump because he constantly is under-fire from the media and many feel the media is so utterly biased and out of hand. Ive said it before but here it is again. I dont feel Trump is particularly intelligent... he is just the punching bag for the people actually coming up with policies & run this country. You can tell when he attempts to describe things his staff informed him of that he either doesn't listen to the whole presentation or just doesn't grasp what they mean.
I do not believe he is authoritarian like many are claiming. Honestly how has your life changed that makes you believe he is since Obama?
