good post, Steam ~ and the article only scratches the surface. A word I keep harping on as being a threat to society appears again when these issues are put to critical analysis
....... fundamentalism .
not religious (necessarily) but political/ideological.

Trumps strength in my opinion is he is not a career politician, and he's not bought and paid for by big business like the others. He's an outsider.
I think people are sick and tired of the establishment, and want things to change. The big banks and big business (Goldman etc) and the establishment (both political parties in fact) are afraid of him now, as he was only a joke to them before.

The media has a lot to be blamed for. Each time he opens his trap they bleat on about how bad it is but nothing concrete is said or done. They love the celebrity too much.

The only hope we have (and I use the word 'we' as a global citizen) is that the US electorate has a wide demographic. I heard a report to say that 'minority' groups made up around 51%of the electorate when Obama first got in and may be up to 61% now. Not only are these natural Democrats but he's tried his best to alienate them.

The problem is voters of all flavours feel disenfranchised and Trump is a 'rebel' vote against the establishment that Republicans think have let them down, even though the damage was done largely by their own previous candidates. Dangerous times.

Indeed, Jimski ~ and you've hit the nail on the head too, Jazzlover.

I view that perception of his being an "outsider" as delusional. Trump's net worth is over ten billion dollars.
I would like nothing more than to be proven totally wrong in my views as to his qualifications and goals should he be elected. I'm not against everything he stands for, at least not in principle on some issues, but what exactly are his methods? ~ he doesn't answer questions that are put to him.

Why Trump will win :

According to the Huffington post, He termed Riyadh the “world's biggest funder of terrorism,” complaining that “Saudi Arabia funnels our petro dollars, our very own money, to fund the terrorists that seek to destroy our people while the Saudis rely on us to protect them.

On taxes he said he would “start off by simplifying our current system. Put H & R Block out of business ... make it nice and easy for people to understand and reduce taxes.

He said he would raise taxes on unfair imports, then, “The lobbyists are going to come and see me, but I don't give a s-- about lobbyists.

I don't think the President has the power to unilaterally put in place the things he says he will do anyway. It's all talk and everyone knows it.

You'll never hear Hillary say this :

'We won with young, we won with old, we won with highly educated, we won with poorly educated — I love the poorly educated. We're the smartest'

interesting times.

And yes he's rich and can fund his own campaign, which means he is not dependent to the same degree on New York bankers support like the others, so he's a threat to the status quo establishment as he isn't under anyones control. A lone wolf. Imho of course.

Not that I'm a fan of his, I'm just watching the world turn over.

Unfortunately, while there are still some limits to executive power, much of that balance in-check has been replaced by war-powers and federal emergency countermandment subject to little more than loose definitions of "war" and "emergency"
under arbitrary declaration.
I won't even go into the damage Obama has already done to destroy the fabric of American citizens' rights and liberty. I worry less about what Trump says than what he doesn't say.

FULL EDITORIAL
https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... story.html

Harvard professor compares Donald Trump's rise to Hitler's
Pamela Engel Feb. 22, 2016, 
[Excerpt]
A Harvard University professor published an editorial in The Washington Post on Sunday that compared the surprising rise of Republican presidential candidate to Adolf Hitler seizing power in Germany.

"Like any number of us raised in the late 20th century, I have spent my life perplexed about exactly how Hitler could have come to power in Germany," professor and political theorist Danielle Allen wrote.

" Watching Donald Trump's rise, I now understand ," she added.

She then went on to explain " how a demagogic opportunist can exploit a divided country ." She urged Trump's critics not to stand by passively as he gains support among Republican primary voters.

Allen wrote:

" Trump is rising by taking advantage of a divided country. The truth is that the vast majority of voting Americans think that Trump is unacceptable as a presidential candidate, but we are split by strong partisan ideologies and cannot coordinate a solution to stop him. Similarly, a significant part of voting Republicans think that Trump is unacceptable, but they too, thus far, have been unable to coordinate a solution. Trump is exploiting the fact that we cannot unite across our ideological divides.

Hitler rose to power on a nationalist message. He told the German people that they were exceptional and played on feelings of disenfranchisement".

The Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions ... story.html
Spoiler:
Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist
 
Post columnist Dana Milbank says it's long past time for Donald Trump’s rivals for the Republican presidential nomination to find the courage to call the man what he is. 

Let’s not mince words: Donald Trump is a bigot and a racist.

Some will think this an outrageous label to apply to the frontrunner for a major party’s presidential nomination. Ordinarily, I would agree that name-calling is part of what’s wrong with our politics.

But there is a greater imperative not to be silent in the face of demagoguery. Trump in this campaign has gone after African Americans, immigrants, Latinos, Asians, women, Muslims and now the disabled. His pattern brings to mind the famous words of Martin Neimoller, the pastor and concentration camp survivor (“First they came for the socialists…”) that Ohio Gov. John Kasich adroitly used in a video last week attacking Trump’s hateful broadsides.

It might be possible to explain away any one of Trump’s outrages as a mistake or a misunder-standing. But at some point you’re not merely saying things that could be construed as bigoted: You are a bigot.

It has been more than a quarter century since Trump took out ads in New York newspapers calling for the death penalty for “criminals of every age” after five black and Latino teens were implicated in the Central Park jogger case. The young men, convicted and imprisoned, were later cleared by DNA evidence and the confession of a serial rapist – and Trump called their wrongful-conviction settlement a “disgrace.”

Trump mocks disabled reporter

At a rally in Myrtle Beach, S.C., on Tuesday, Nov. 24, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump mocks New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski who is disabled. 

Since then, Trump led the “birther” movement challenging President Obama’s standing as a natural-born American; used various vulgar expressions to refer to women; spoke of Mexico sending rapists and other criminals across the border; called for rounding up and deporting 11 million illegal immigrants; had high-profile spats with prominent Latino journalists and news outlets; mocked Asian accents; let stand a charge made in his presence that Obama is a Muslim and that Muslims are a “problem” in America; embraced the notion of forcing Muslims to register in a database; falsely claimed thousands of Muslims celebrated the 9/11 attacks in New Jersey; tweeted bogus statistics asserting that most killings of whites are done by blacks; approved of the roughing up of a black demonstrator at one of his events; and publicly mocked the movements of New York Times (and former Washington Post) journalist Serge Kovaleski, who has a chronic condition limiting mobility.

He hasn’t gone after Jews recently, but his backers have, and Trump was uncharacteristically silent when prominent booster Ann Coulter, responding to Republican candidates’ support for Israel in a debate, tweeted: “How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?”

Though all Trump supporters surely aren’t racists or bigots, even a cursory examination of social media reveals that many are. Those supporting Trump tend to be white, less-educated and middle-aged and older – those who are anxious and angry because they are losing ground as the American economy changes. An analysis of the latest Washington Post-ABC News poll by my colleague Scott Clement found that Trump, who has the support of 14 percent of registered voters overall, does particularly well among white men who aren’t college-educated (24 percent) and white, non-evangelical Protestants (27 percent), but gets only 3 percent of non-whites and 5 percent of those under 30 years old.

This doesn’t mean Republicans or conservatives generally are bigoted. I wouldn’t label any other candidate in the GOP field that way (though Carson’s remarks disqualifying Muslims from the presidency crossed the line) and Trump, though leading in the polls, lacks the support of most. Thirty-two percent of Republicans supported Trump in the latest Post poll, which means 86 percent of the overall American electorate hasn’t embraced him.

Trump’s rivals for the nomination are slowly and haltingly finding the courage to call the man what he is. Chris Christie on Monday criticized Trump’s treatment of Kovaleski. John Kasich, after last week’s Neimoller video, issued an ad Monday showing Trump’s mockery of Kovaleski’s disability and saying Trump isn’t “worthy” of the presidency.
