    Unless they're rich, then the GO gets to call them "job creators" and throw endless tax cuts their way.

    -- A2SG, just look at all they jobs they create in third world nations!

    Gee, when a group that complains about having no voice in politics speaks up, he gives them the microphone.

    Yeah, we don't need that kinda stuff 'round here!

    -- A2SG, no wonder they call him a socialist.....

    Next year, we may start seeing fisticuffs on the floor of Congress, just like some of those YouTube videos from third-world countries.

    Trump (if elected) will then say "Congress is so stupid I'm not going to bother with it. I'll just Executive Order everything and it'll be great."

    I predict, should he win, Trump would most likely win the race for most executive orders given.

    And he will boast about it, "Look, I am a guy that gets things done. I don't wait to a bunch of losers and liars for permission."

    Wow! How desperate are the GOP to come up with this garbage so as to smear Sanders by implication?

    You do realize that because you refer to it as a dream rather than a nightmare this means that you yearn for genocide? If that is so I'd recommend that you vote for Sanders, I hear he is genocidal as well.

    Having a single shared attribute/value doesn't mean that two people (or entities) share all attributes/values.

    For example, Hitler hated communism, so did JFK...yet, it would be ridiculous to try to lump them in and pretend "they're the same person" simply because there was one thing they happened to agree on.

    That would be pretty tough to accomplish...FDR has quite a record going for himself on that one. He had over 3,500...

    To put that in perspective, that was more than 7x the number of orders by Obama and Bush combined.

    Or, another way of looking at it, well over 300 per year...meaning that FDR, on average was at almost 1 per day.

    A man who can set aside his own ego to let a couple of women talk about an issue they feel is important is not embarrassing. What's embarrassing is that the hate speech and demagoguery the Donald spews is met with thunderous applause. A borderline fascist is the presumptive Republican nominee. That's embarrassing!

    he may be lots of things, but he is NOT "Borderline". You should be embarrassed at calling him that.:preach:

    There's no question that he's an egomaniacal opportunist, so I have some doubts about whether he actually believes any of the crazy stuff he says.

    If the issue was important the two women in question would have sought a permit to speak at their own rally rather than threaten and intimidate a Democratic presidential candidate to step from his own dais and let them speak.
    People who think black lives matter don't present themselves as two black women who are threatening and racist in the face of a white male presidential candidate.

    And yet you differentiate the hate speech of BLM from that of Donald Trump.
    I'd suggest you learn what Fascist politics embodies before embarrassing yourself further thinking Trump is the example of that. His background , his work ethic, the party he's running for, and his business model refute Fascism in its entirety.
    While the man you praise, Sanders, is a Socialist. Maybe learn what Socialism entails as a political model after you learn what Fascism is.

    Throwing words out that you think sting a candidate you disagree with and without knowing the body of history behind those words doesn't make for an informed point against Trump.

    Hypothetically speaking should one also be embarrassed for thinking that Sanders parallels a genocidal regime? Hypothetically speaking of course, I'm not saying such a thing has really happened.
