Something I keep thinking about

Something I keep thinking about
Just a little over 10 years ago during the 2012 election. Romney shot himself in the foot when the hidden video came out with his 47% comment. That alone killed his chances, outside of binders full of women and corporations are people too. Now this is literally a decade ago when these types of comments were campaign killers.

Now hypothetically. Imagine what is being planned if Trump does indeed get put back in about becoming a dictator and turning America into a fascist shit hole. Now apply those words and plans a decade ago. People would have been absolutely shocked and appalled if Romney or any other conservative that might have gotten the nom would have uttered their plans to install a dictatorship. Obama literally would have ended up well above 400 ECV's because people would have been absolutely terrified by the idea of that.

Now fast forward to now. Where these words actually don't **** your campaign, they actually might boost you. Now this is my question. Where the **** in this timeline did people become so desensitized to this crazy shit that they are actually okay with giving up being free?

Oh my God, what a dumb thread.  It immediately jumped to Obama and racism, claiming that having a black president "broke" everybody.  Then it devolved into a debate about using profanity.

It's funny how these moronic shitheads throw the word fascism around, in spite of the fact that it is the people and political party which they support that have been working with private industry to censor people and information with which they do not agree - which is a textbook example of actual fascism.

But not 'funny haha'.

And Romney's statement about 47% of the populace not paying taxes was pretty close to accurate.  Why they have a problem with facts, I'll never know.

There's not much need to imagine what Trump will o if he returns to office. He will try to secure the border, make our economy stronger, make peace deals, and so on. In other words, the same stuff he did before.

And hopefully go after some of the corrupt politicians who have persecuted him.

vercetti is just an angry dude who is running around pretending to be a woman somewhere in far north Texas.  He's just mad to be mad.

I don’t think he understands the meaning of hypothetically and imagine he seems to think it’s going to happen and not a figment of his drug induced imagination  :thatsright: :mental: :mental: :loser: :loser: :loser:

I think I'm going to stop calling them DUmmies.

I think I'm going to start calling them 47%'s.  You know most of them don't pay a single damn dime in federal taxes.  Not only do they not pay, they get back THOUSANDS of dollars in many cases, due to the Unearned Income Credit.

Top that off with those who suck up the free healthcare and mental care (Underground Panther, Lady Freedom Returns, etc.), SSDI and foodstamps, like MVD (while he's making 10's of thousands off his gofundme donations)

Hell, maybe I should learn from the 47%'s and join them.  Atlas Shrugged might just be coming true ...

Romney's about as "pro-2A" as that other east coast grifter, Michael Bloomberg. He was probably aiming for his head, and missed.
