Trump or DeSantis... the greater threat isn't who you might think.

First, let me admit I didn't know much about DeSantis until today when I googled him.

But I know plenty about Trump.

If Trump emerges from 2022/2023 free and relatively undamaged, he'll probably run for POTUS in 2024.

DeSantis is probably running too, with dozens of billionaires standing behind him including Elon Musk.



I'm MUCH more concerned with DeSantis than Trump.

Trump has terrible numbers and you can't "remake" a first impression.

Pretty much any DEM candidate in 2024 probably beats Trump.


Now DeSantis...

I was quite surprised by his BIO... it's almost like he's the perfect paper candidate. Details:

Blue collar upbringing. Great grandfather an immigrant from Italy.

Yale Grad, Magna Cum Laude

Harvard Law Grad, Cum Laude

Navy commission as a JAG

Assigned to Seal Team One as an advisor to the Commander

1 year in Iraq

Bronze Star

Presently a Naval Reservist, a Lt. Commander in rank.

Married with 3 young kids, wife is an Emmy Award winning TV host/reporter who beat breast cancer

Oh and he's 43...



And Trump vs DeSantis politically?

There's not a damn bit of difference. In fact, I'll postulate that DeSantis is more nasty than Trump... meaner.

And the big difference... Trump is literally STUPID.

DeSantis is highly intelligent.

He's MUCH more dangerous.



I will enjoy the Primaries, I hope they tear each other to shreds and the Trumpists refuse to support DeSantis and stay home.
OMG! This is so hilarious!! They are just now realizing that "DeathSentence" is going to be a huuuuuuge problem for them.

The one thing they haven't yet mentioned is that if Trump wins, he will be term-limited in 2028, but "DeathSentence will be able to serve a WHOLE EIGHT YEARS!!!

Guess he just literally fell into billions of dollars even though his father only literally gave him a 10M loan. I'm sure it literally had nothing to do with his degree from UPenn-Wharton school of Finance. Yeah, he's literally a moron.

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

And he's also so dumb that he beat Hillary who was considered to be a shoo-in due to her incredible political acumen.

And another thing, he's got a great sense of humor.

The thought of him in the WH, almost makes me want a cyanide pill on hand, just in case.

Fine with me.

I feel the need to point out that Trump basically correctly predicted the consequences of a Biden presidency. So, was it so obvious that a stupid person could see it? Are you even more stupid? What's the deal?

Keep dreaming... I don't know what the outcome will be. But, one thing you can count on.."Trumpists" won't stay home.

I am perfectly clear on who is the bigger threat to the United States. Hopefully other voters will recognize the threat as well.  :mad:
