Sometimes there is just too much shit to shovel...

How could any American support any politician that would choose to go to a political rally, rather than offer solace and support to those in the middle of a disaster?

It's something only an insane person would do.

And even when Americans are trying to help each other during this crisis, he is talking more division and more insults to his political opponents.

How could any American cheer for such bullshit??

Sad when we miss the likes of Bush.

27. Yes, they're in a cult..but that cult is getting smaller and smaller.

There will always be that kind of cult. There are indications that many have left the so called, "cult" and will vote for the Democratic Party for the first time ever. We will see if that is true in a few weeks.

There is nothing more sickening than seeing that lunatic spout his hatred towards Democrats. How the hell anyone could vote for that sick moron is beyond belief. He has brought the worst people in this country out of woodwork.

10. This is what 40% of Americans truly want.

They worship selfishness and hatred.
They have wanted to express this their whole lives but this is the first time they have been free to do so. That's why he is a god to them.

So many in our country are miserable human beings at heart and are determined to remain so.

11. The cheering crowd is a stark reminder of how our educational

system has failed miserably in passing on the lessons of fascism in Europe. Rick Stevesí The Story of Fascism in Europe is a valiant attempt to remedy that. Unfortunately l doubt very much that they will see it, or the diabolical playbook borrowed from the dark times in Europe. It is up to those of us that clearly understand the dangers to redouble our efforts to stamp it out before it consumes our nation.

25. Failed miserably is an understatement.

No common sense. No discernment. I would bet that most of the people at his rallies think that the Nazis were on the left.

One book: "Liberal Fascism" by Jonah Goldberg 2007 started this scam. Now it is held up as truth. It's scary.

18. Our National Disgrace & Tragedy

I suspect that most--even all--of us completely understand your incredulity and sense of bewilderment and despair.

Personally, I've lost all respect for the citizenry that amasses at these hate fests, chants "lock her up" (while pretending to be flag-waving freedom lovers in what has become a police state), and laughs uproariously as the mouthpiece of all that is worst in humanity spews fear and evil, insults and ridicule and lies so loathsome and in defiance of any semblance of human decency or civility.

I despise these people with every ounce of my being. Their display of ignorance, incivility, and unabashed hatred TOWARD THE REST OF US is a national disgrace and tragedy. This cannot be tolerated. These people must be stuffed, confronted and socialized to the proper role of a citizen and decent human being within a society.

26. The tragedy runs so deep, Pepsidog

Tho' the faces and antics of those at the rallies are deplorable enough, the fissures run much deeper.

Door to door, and block by block across this diverse society, the animosities and distrust between people are widening, deepening, and hardening. At even the most intimate level of the neighborhood, humanity itself is under assault. I can't bear to even look at
some of my neighbors. I avoid interaction. I voted early to avoid going to the polls and having to look at the camo-clad, hirsute swampcritters queued up, who have recently become politically active and active voters.

Principles have been upended, turned on their heads, and even reality is under assault. Existence itself grows increasingly dichotomous.

This morning. It seems most of the Country is just tired,worn out, in a state of depression. But the under lying anger is very much there.

I should receive my absentee ballot today and am filling it out ,going right to the PO to make sure i has the right postage.
