My fascination with American Politics has increased considerably over the last 10 years or so. The Candidates from the Republican Party are more right wing, more ignorant and frankly, more insane every 4 year election cycle. At the time, I thought Bush was pretty bad but when I think about it now, he’s got nothing on the new crop of Republicans. McCain, going partially senile and demented, nominating Sarah Palin as his running mate who as far as I am concerned, is a pycho f*&king loon was worse. The Romney/Paul ticket wasn’t a whole lot better. This year, it would appear that the whole thing has slid completely off the rails. I literally cannot believe what I am seeing on tv and watching on the internet. However, I am not entirely convinced that Donald Trump is as ignorant and stupid as he appears. I think that there is an element of showmanship and toadyism. He appears to be pretty damn good at telling people what they want to hear. Whether or not he actually believes it, I don’t know.
Anywho, that brings me to my question. Who is worse – the people who are ignorant and stupid enough to follow Trump and vote for him? – Or the people who show up at his rallies to protest him and get in fights (regardless of whether or not they started them) with his supporters? He’s got every right to be saying what he’s saying so why would they do that? The first amendment to the constitution guarantees him that. If you want to protest him, there’s a very easy way that doesn’t involve conflict. Don’t vote for him.
Help me out here people.
