The anti-Trump resistance takes shape: 'Government's supposed to fear us'

2,197 posts in this topic

I hope this gets more people to pay attention to what is happening in their country. We will see good or bad what Trump does. If he doesn't try to end the lobbyist's total domination of US governing then we will know he is/was a fraud. If he does then he will get my support.

The activist interviewed says "The government’s supposed to fear us, not the other way around". He then goes on to say “I voted for Hilary Clinton out of fear". And the article itself describes current "resistance" tactics as trying to "galvanize anger and fear over his election into a strategy to resist his policies and remake the left as a credible political alternative". Seems like there's a bit of a duality there regarding fear - bad when people afraid from government, but useful in motivating them in the right direction. I dunno that the government is supposed to fear the people, but with all all the Resistance and Star Wars imagery, this just suggested itself:

 

fear-leads-to-anger-anger-leads-to-hate.

Expats can vote too. 

It they gave you a pin after leaving the voting station reading "I love Trump" don't wear it here. The word Trump is now giving a lot of people hives around their rectum. They are real red Republican welts.

The majority itf the electoraitse did noIt vote for Trump. In fact almost 75% of eligible voters did not vote for Trump. Of those that did vote, about 1,800,000 more votes for Clinton have been counted so far, with more mail in ballots and provisional ballots still being counted. He did not receive a 'mandate' from the voters. In fact, he did not even have a plurality, much less a majority. He is only the 'winner' due to the form of voting that exists in the USA. The Electoral College meets on December 19 to cast their ballots. Still time for an upset as some US states require the Electoral College members to vote for their states winner, while some certainly do not. While it's possible that an upset may still occur to benefit Clinton, it's highly unlikely. You think the Democrats are 'sore losers'? If that turnabout were to occur, you'd see real violence from Trump supporters if enough of the Electoral College voters were to alter their votes based on the information that the poplular vote went to Clinton and not to Trump. If allowed to vote freely the results could be reversed.

 

I'm having difficulty believing this ridiculous point Is still being canvassed.

 

Trump WON, legally under the existing system. I'm sure there have been democrat wins with similar numbers, and not a whimper from the loser left.

 

It's pointless saying "If...........". Clinton would have won.

She didn't, and now the loser left are raising hell.

 

The "If......." discussion has been done to death already, and It's as Irrelevant In your post as It was In the post that first mentioned It.

 

There Is an electoral system In place.  If you don't like tje result It produces, work to vchange tjhe system.

 

This Is just more sore losing by the left.  Don't like It?  Abuse, ridicule, threaten, riot.

 

Sorry, unable to edit typos.

We played by the rules, we won, get over it.   Reality plain and simple.

Yes, and these are the guys that got upset when Trump said he may not like the outcome if he thought it was rigged. Now the shoe is on the other foot and the liberal hooligans and elitist thugs are all upset because they didn't win. Well they should have done a better job of rigging. Four years they'll get another shot at it. There wasn't this much rioting when the first black got elected president.

I'm not sure if you can call Trump a republican really. He's more republican than democrat, but many of the republican party are disgusted by him. Just a month before the election many were turning their backs on him and people were talking about the divide within the party. The divide is still there between the alt-right extremists and the run of the mill moderate republicans. I think both parties were weakened by this election. The democrats somehow lost to the worst candidate in American history. The republicans who have long touted things like christian values now have a guy running the show who features ideals that many of them do not share, and who makes it very hard to tout those values.

 

Trump did win the election fair and square though. He'll have his presidency and then the honus is on him to do something positive with it. Otherwise we'll have a divided country for the next four years.

trump will never unite the country. Not with extremist right ring radicals like Bannon and Sessions in key positions.

As long as people are willing to listen and discuss Trump will succeed - it's only when the liberal fru frus ignore the other side then disagreements happen that compromise can't be reached.  It's kind of like putting someone on ignore when he is always right and you are always wrong.  You still have to listen and learn even if you don't agree.

Probably he won't. But honestly, even if he didn't have Bannon and Sessions on his team, I think you'd still denounce him. Not saying that's wrong, more that many people do not want to be "united" by Trump. Doubt he'll do any good on this front, zero expectations. Just hope he'll leave something which could be restored. A houses divided might not stand, a house demolished...meh.

Fox News site (CNN info is from the 18th) with current information (7:11 am EST at this time) is about 1.2 million difference. So it looks like the difference is shrinking. Interesting. You are probably correct that things would be far from pretty if the electoral college didn't vote the way their states are supposed to vote. That would probably be true in any of the historical elections - if they voted differently than the election results.

If any of the cultural Marxists haven't noticed yet, Trump isn't in office and has not issued any orders executive or otherwise.  For those hoping for a revolution, I'm thinking that perhaps it's wise to be careful what you wish for.  Free speech is protected; violence is not.  But however it sorts itself out, I'm quite happy to no longer live there.  Enjoy playtime kids.  Remember Kent State (nevermind, before your time).  :sleep:

That's academic. He is making the horrific picks.
