    Morally unmoored, emotionally unstable, a crony capitalist of the worst kind, Trump will be every bit as liberal as Hillary—perhaps more so, given his statements over the years. He is by reflex and instinct a New York Democrat whose formal party affiliation is negotiable, as is everything about him. He has little commitment to anything but himself and his “deals,” none of which will work in favor of conservatives or their priorities.
    His judicial appointments will likely be liberal friends from New York. His Great Wall of Mexico will never be built, and employers will go right on hiring cheap labor and outsourcing jobs, just as Trump does with his made-in-Mexico suits. His China Smoot-Hawley Tariff will never be implemented. His administration, led by a vulgar, aging man-child who is firmly pro-abortion, who jokes about having sex with his daughter, and brags about his wealth, will hurt the poorest and most vulnerable among us—including the unborn.

    Trump Will Tar Conservatives Forever
    Trump, of course, will dissemble and whine about all these eventual failures. His fans will excuse him, as they do now, but they have short attention spans and will vanish in later midterm elections and future presidential contests. His white nationalist supporters, clinging to him like lice in the fur of an angry chimp, will shake their fists along with him for a time, until they too eventually slink away. By 2020, his core constituency will be a tiny sliver of what’s left of the white working class, pathetically standing at the gates of empty factories they thought Trump would re-open.

    Conservatives can recover from four, or even eight, years of Hillary Clinton. We might even flourish.
    More to the point, after four years of thrashing around in the Oval Office like the ignorant boor he is, voters will no longer be able distinguish between the words “Trump,” “Republican,” “conservative,” and “buffoon.” He will obliterate Republicans further down the ticket in 2016 and 2020, smear conservatism as nothing more than his own brand of narcissism, and destroy decades of hard work, including Ronald Reagan’s legacy.

    Seems to me that 95% of Trump's appeal comes from his stance on Mexicans and Moslems. Thats it.

    His supporters are single issue voters.

    Trump is now officially a politician although I think its safe to say that he has lied in the past when he thought it was appropriate/helpful.

    Taking into account his statements over the past couple of decades and based on his overall impression, Trump is a liberal on every other issue: Obamacare, abortion, gun control, spending, debt, big government etc.

    As he has said, a person is allowed to change their minds.

    Thats true but in his case, I think hes full of shit.

    This is spot on. Look I'm a liberal but I'm the first one to admit that conservatism has a rich and honorable tradition in American political life and Trump is single-handily destroying conservatism with this bullshit campaign of his. Republicans are so desperate to win the Presidency they allowed a snake oil salesman to abduct their party and movement.

    It's a good thing Conservatism has liberals who know whats best and so passionately defend it. Trump is a carny barker, a buffoon but he sure seems to have liberals and rinos undies in a bunch. I've never seen such hatred and vitriol for any candidate, it's remarkable. It's fun to watch all of guys twist. :up:

    This guy has nothing to worry about, all the experts agree that Trump can't beat hillary in the general election. He will get his wish, another clinton presidency.

    the reaction towards Trump reminds me of how people were so alarmed by Ronald Regan when he was running against Bush 41 in the republican primaries leading up to 1980. this is amped up to the max but Regan caused very much the same consternation in democrats and establishment republicans at the time

    I was stuck in a waiting room yesterday and all there were was 4 month old magazines. In them, the experts all agreed that Trump's act would soon wear on people and he'd be out of the race by late December and were sizing up a Ben Carson / Jeb Bush race.

    Hard to know where the truth is.
    Hundreds of different opinions and ways to look at this situation and the candidates involved.
    Will be interesting to see how this all played out a year from now.

    I was watching the news this morning and now they've got Mitt Romney calling for Trump to show his tax return.
    Like it will be a bad thing for Trump.
    Mitt fucking Romney ???
