    As if to say that being second or third place on the most dangerous in human history list is somehow what we in America should be aspiring to?

    HELLO!

    It's not where you are on that list that matters. It's whether or not you are ON IT.
    We've actually established nothing. And this has nothing to do with what America is aspiring to. The topic seems pretty clear to me however we are obviously talking about two very different things here.

    You look in history at folks like Mao Zedong, Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Kim IlSung (and many others). And you want to put Putin above them?

    Me look at history?

    No, YOU.

    You're the one looking in history. Anything but talk about how dangerous the Republican party is.

    WE, the majority who voted against Trump are looking at the Republican party and seeing how dangerous it is to the United States of America.

    The Republican party, to the rest of us, appears to have lost it's mind. Trump was barely elected, after losing the popular vote by millions. They have pretended, at Trump's own dictation, that this was some kind of huge landslide win with the biggest inauguration ever. He has repeatedly lied, and the Republican party just LOOKS THE OTHER WAY. He lied to Republicans, and they just LOOK THE OTHER WAY. He has come out with policies which have actually lowered the lifespan of Republicans, along with everyone else, and they just LOOK THE OTHER WAY. He has been friendly to our enemies and nasty to our friends, and the Republican party JUST LOOKS THE OTHER WAY.

    Trump said he would eliminate the debt. Everyone knew he couldn't do it, but Republicans, who have made a VERY BIG DEAL about the importance of responsible budgeting and lowering the deficit have not only looked the other way, but voted for a VERY IRRESPONSIBLE tax cut and budget that has driven the deficit over a trillion dollars. And if anybody brings it up you Republicans quickly change the subject and LOOK THE OTHER WAY. The rest of us think you people have lost it. You've compromised your own ideals and supported this leader who has been terrible for our country and the world, for that matter.

    By doing things that help the rich and hurt the poor, wealth inequality has become more extreme. That is HURTING America. It is not making it great. It is making it worse. The well off don't need to be more well off. The disadvantaged need to have their stature raised if you want to make the country great. You don't judge the greatness of a country by how rich the richest are. You look at the condition of the poorest.

    And I tell you what. When you get enough people excluded from prosperity, and they see the chosen ones enjoying comfort and luxury, you don't have a great country. What you have is the seeds of revolution and possible demise of that country. And that is dangerous to the United States of America.

    Yes, Snowflake, President Trump won a landslide electoral college victory.

    Gracias a Dios.

    We can overlook folks who murder millions of people but you pass a tax cut and that makes you the worst group in history...

    You’ve established nothing of the sort, Snowflake.

    The American people did not think that the Republican party is in contention for being "the most dangerous organisation in human history.” The American people elected a member of the Republican Party...President Trump.

    A landslide electoral college victory that sent Crooked Hillary home to bake cookies and rid her home of old Bill’s bimbos.

    Pretending the assessment is based on only the irresponsible tax cut might be a good method of self-fooling, but what is really going on is that is just an example of how Republicans can look the other way at anything Trump does. Add it all up and THAT is what makes him and the Republican party who give him that power so dangerous to American democracy, and the country itself.

    He ran on cutting taxes and border security, Snowflake.

    Four more years.

    Radical Democratic Socialism is the danger...see Venezuela.

    Trump is breaking down the walls that make 3 equal divisions of the government. He is trying to take over the FBI and demands loyalty to him as a primary qualification. He has used the power of the office to question any investigations as political and personal. He has not even managed to keep the Secretary of Defense position occupied because he does not want anyone else's opinions involved.
    He has politicized the court system like no president before. He has not populated the diplomatic agencies. He was talking to Kim and had not even had a South Korean ambassador in place.
    He lies about the press claiming it is the enemy of the people. It is just the opposite.
    He has refused to respect subpoenas and court orders.
    Trump is a threat to the American experiment.
