I constantly hear the trumpsters shouting the Dems want socialism. Of course they are so stupid they do not know the difference between socialism and some social programs, i.e., Social Security and Medicare. What I do not hear them complain about is the type of authoritarian rule that Trump seems to be moving the country to. He has even said straight out that he wants to name a justice to the court so that they can give him the election. And these same Trumpsters called Obama a dictator for using executive orders, while applauding Trump for doing so much more to the country with his orders. So what are you afraid of more, a few socialist programs or Trump's authoritian rule?

I don't care about his Authoritarianism.

I don't even care about what he does to Obama, or what the Republicans did to Obama and to us to maintain power and control after handing over an economic crisis.

They were the desperate scurvy politicians who almost got shut out by Al Gore.

I care that Trump made the same tax cut as created the Bush economic crisis.

I care that all this money went on the credit card.

I care about the Republican hypocrisy.

I care that the Democrats have made no mistake, except to reach out to these scurvy rats with their bare hand.

Give them the President, House and Senate, and let's see what they will do.

If we fail on the Senate, we won't be able to repeal the tax cut, but at least we will have a Democrat with restraints.

All of those points are valid I don't understand why you're dismissing the authoritarianism which, in my view, is the no. 1 immediate threat to this Republic. The first order of business is to stop Trump's slow moving putsch.

My only worry concerning Medicare and other social programs is that Republicans will succeed in ruining them. I'm much more concerned with a growing acceptance of authoritarianism.

You can't have communism without authoritarianism.

What's your point? Do you even have one?

I know you want to try to paint Trump as a dictator, but as usual, have no evidence to support your claim.

It's always a toss-up whether comments like that come from pure ignorance of history or on orders to lie for the cult of Dirtbag.

Well, of course you cultists are perfectly comfortable with your Dear Dirtbag threatening to refuse to concede the election no matter how badly he gets his ass kicked by the voters.

Socialism is state ownership of the means of production.

Trumpists use the word "socialism" to describe things they don't like.

Undermining the election, saying he will only lose if the election is rigged, not committing to a peaceful transfer of power, wanting to fill a seat before the election only because he thinks it will help him win contested results, lying about mail in ballots, and the list goes on.

I asked about what he has done, not what he has said. How is saying those things "authoritarian," even if it's true he said them (some of it isn't)?
