Good to meet you people, I just googled this website because I wish to discuss politics but most places like reddit outright ban people wiht right wing opinions. Is this site a good place for trump supporters? I hope we can have a jolly time discussing!

This is a better place than most for non lefties. I actually am left, A former liberal currently what I call a Zen Socialist who supports Trump on class warfare grounds, I want to reeducate the coastal elite as to the meaning of democracy and justice. As a Trump supporter you will be made fun of, you will be baited, but some of the people here are finally starting to understand that Trump is very talented, and that some of his supporters are very smart and are supporting him for very good reasons. It is still a bit early to expect to find anyone here who will admit it though, other than for me.

There is a lot of barstool hijinks here, my advice is to locate the smart people who have been around the block at least once, and talk to them. There are many here.

Welcome.

Re: Hi

You won't get banned for having an opinion, don't worry. This site has an excellent moderator team that strive to be fair. Just make sure you read the rules, there are some small details that are important to be aware of.

As a happy DP denizen, I reserve the right to dislike anyone that doesn't agree with me.

I'm sure I won't dislike you anymore than anyone else! :thumbs:

Re: Hi

Now there's a welcome!

This is most certainly not a place for the timid or the stupid, by design.

My Friend Chomsky is exactly right:

THINK!

If you cant put up well reasoned and documented argument you will get crucified around here.

Which I like.

Re: Hi

Thanks for the welcome, thats what I was hoping for. A place to talk politics with the other side and maybe save a few of them, I love arguing. There are places like the_Donald but its a circle jerk ith memes mostly.

If you love arguing, then you are home but don't expect to save many, unless you're unbelievably good?

I know most people do not usually concede arguments, but some of the lurkers and bystanders might get curious and do research on it.

"The Donald" and "circle jerk" were never meant to be in the same sentence.

It's not uncommon to flip someone on the party line to the other side on an issue but rare to convert them completely. Independents are of course impossible to recruit, since they only address each issue individually. Moi is such.

Re: Hi

Yeah no conservative could ever be against Trump :roll:

Trump is scrambling the board, not all conservatives need apply for positions of power.

Some of you are headed for a well deserved disenfranchisement.

As Gordon Gekko said:

Well, in my book you either do it right or you get eliminated

Sorry!

Playing the rayciss card is embarassing enough for a liberal, but for someone claiming to be conservative its hilarious. If mere words offend you how exactly are you not a liberal?

I didnt play the "rayciss" card, I was simply pointing out a web forum for you in which most of the posters support Trump for president

I never said I was offended

Re: Hi

Yea I know what you meant with that, I am used to dealing with snide comments. And sorry for assuming you are offended, but most people who come at Trump from this angle have not read his policies and are indeed just offended by his non PC rhetoric.

There is playing the game, and then there is being a dick, the smart can tell the difference.

And just so that we are clear, some Trump supporters are very smart.

More so than you.

Apparently.

Seriously.

Be nice for now. If you want to throw daggers at least wait till they're in a thread. For this moment they're just feeling us out to see if we're worth their effort, be polite. Can't you at least understand that much?

Right if you agree with the statement its "playing the game" if you dont its "being a dick"

Seriously.

Smart enough to start a mortgage company right before the housing collapse?

Im sure you all wish you were as "smart" as your demigod
