LET. THIS. SINK. IN.

The Canadian parliament, our friends, our most loyal ally and our most significant trading partner, unanimously passed a motion to condemn trump for his slanderous and vile personal attacks on their government and their prime minister.

Just days later, trump praised a hereditary dictator that tortures and murders his own people as a “great man who loves his people”.

We are through the looking glass people. This is a place we have never been and everyone should be very concerned what these developments mean for our future.

1. Indeed he is attempting a drastic realignment on the international stage

There's no doubt in my mind that had he been president during wwii, he would have gotten us in on the side of the nazis.

Can you name one thing Putin would do in a gradual takeover of the U.S. that Trump hasn't already done, or is going to do?

Just asking.

30. It's not the US I'm worried about.

He's turning the whole world upside down. It started with Brexit, Turkey and the Philippines. Then he hit us. Now he's normalizing North Korea and giving a global platform for brutal dictators. And let's not forget that giant rocket he has. Where does it go from there?

Cheeto will quit G7 and start his own G4.
It will be Trump, Putin, Kim Jong Un and Xi Jingpin (China) in their own little "summit."
Everybody else can pound salt.

Are planning to do themselves.

I'm not a Doctor of Psychology (thank gawd) but is this a way of softening up the masses so atrocities can be passed as somehow normal? (Softening masses and passing sounds somewhat lower GI.)

11. It's all about staying in power.

He’s making friends with all the countries with authoritarian leaders, who themselves are constantly scheming to stay in power. Trump is offering them something better via the USA and it’ll solidify their leadership amongst their people. In return, they will want to make sure Trump remains in power, and they will do what it takes to keep him there. I have huge worries about 2020, and even 2024.

34. He even hinted at this in one of his speeches.

He spoke about not having term limits on the presidency. He said it in a very light and sort of joking manner, but I felt at that very moment there was no joke involved.

Consider this, who do you think he would want to replace him? He does not want to be replaced. Not even by Pence.

37. Yep, I saw that and thought of what my mom says

The truth is often said with a smile.

I would be shocked if he leaves office willingly, due to either term limits or being voted out.
He doesn’t have much reverence for the Constitution, but he seems to have a lot of reverence for dictators.

one of the places I made reservation at I said don't hold Trump against me and she said she didn't like Trudeau either, which made me realize it was a rural area I was staying at so she was probably conservative. I immediately changed subject when she said she didn't like Justin, who I like a lot!

15. Enough. This must end soon. It must.

If it doesn't, it's only a matter of time before forums on the internet expressing truth about the dictator will be shut down, and participants jailed.

Before now, I would have thought that would be a weird 1984 paranoid statement. I no longer think that.

22. He would have "won" even if Hillary was the only candidate from day one.

Don't you get it? They stole the election. It can't be proven but that is what happened. The Republicans have been working for many years to implement their dream of one party, one rule. We are here, people. It ain't going away. We gave it to them when we accepted the SCOTUS decision in 2000 and let the fight for Gore go down the toilet. That was the beginning of the end. We are now rapidly approaching the final scene. They WILL steal the mid-terms or cry fowl play from the Democratic Party and prosecute fake "crimes" in order to neuter Dems. There are still states that don't have paper trails and the SCOTUS "conservatives" just handed the Republicans a big victory in voter purging. They are hard at work and aren't going to let this go. We need a full response to this tyranny as detailed in the Declaration of Independence. Nothing short of that is going to fix this.

24. Preamble to the Declaration of Independence

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."

32. In 2000

The people in the Ukraine thought their election was stolen from the voters. Millions of them went into the streets until the crooked election was overturned and a new election resulted in the rightful winner taking office, but Trump's asshole buddy seized Crimea by military invasion.
When the Supreme (really mediocre) Court handed the keys to power to Bush our experiment in self governance ceased to exist. We are now a Third World fascist dictatorship.

But a recent survey said that 51% of people thought trump did a good job with KJU. He did not.
So I would offer that it bears repeating as often as possible.

Let our allies know at every opportunity that he’s conning the disenfranchised right wing, that most of us despise him and recognize what he is, and promise to fight with them against his stupid, isolationist, destructive policies.
