1. Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos are RICHER and more SUCCESSFUL than Trump

They lost money along the way, but they made tons more, thus should pay more in taxes than they do.

6. Exactly

Itís like playing chess with a pigeon...
No matter how bad you beat them, they strut around like they just check-mated you while they knock pieces over and shit all over the board.

4. He's a tax cheat and he told them so in 2016.

They think all rich people cheat. Major corporations also pay zero tax. With so much cheating going on, who cares if the White House occupant also cheats?

Decades of growing corruption and income inequality have had their inevitable corrosive effect. We are a nation of cynical conspiracy theorists.

Once idealism is lost, it doesn't come back easily.

11. yes, but ..

If you think that all rich people are cheats .. would you be on board with defunding the IRS .. a tax cut that is designed to hugely favor big business and the rich? Wouldn't your own self interest ..?

Oh, never mind ..

12. People think the system is corrupt, therefore they want someone to blow up the system.

If you believe that everything is corrupt, and your tax dollars are already going to the rich, the undeserving, and the power elites, then your desired tax rate is, in fact, zero.

They love Trump because he took advantage of the system then turned on it. They want him to destroy and don't care if he makes additional profit while he does it.

14. don't really "do" politics

might be right.
In fact, I think there IS an element of that out there. On the other hand .. in large part we're not talking about real deep thinkers here. My impression? "Here's a thumb in the eye to Hillary and all those snobbish 'libruls' .. I like it when they squeal." Most of then can't "do" any more theory than that. Overthrow the old order? "Sure .. wait .. we'll still have NASCAR and NFL won't we?"

5. Who do they think pays the taxes trump doesn't pay?

Trump is not a billionaire- I bet you he isn't even close to a billion dollars.

7. You can't.

Arguing with a smart person is difficult.

Arguing with a stupid person is impossible...

13. Avoid feeding them! (aka. don't)

These poor people have been inundated with so much BS their heads aint on straight any more, and that is the ONLY excuse I want to hear from now on!

The U.S. Govt is FUBAR but not completely without merit, and I fear it needs a wipe and drop, meaning a complete redo, to a much simpler Constitution and set of reasonably enforceable rules with no ambiguity whatsoever!

How about: State govts handle this, Federal govt handles that, with no overlapping nonsense like there is now, looking at you cannabis!

Rules for this many people are at the insanity level, proof you say: # of lawyers (mic drop)
