A large part of the appeal of Donald Trump

even to those of us who oppose much of his style and substance is that he and he alone
appears prepared to fight the Left and fight to win, which of course means using all their dirty tactics against them. He alone seems to grasp that we are in a war, and that civility has no place in a war, except for a mock civility deployed when it is advantageous to do so. The politics of personal destruction has been a trademark feature of the Left since at least V. I. Lenin, and Trump has shown that he is skilled in this nasty art. Case in point: his swift elimination of the gentlemanly but effete Jeb Bush. Poor Jeb went from Jeb! to Jeb in no time despite all the money behind him. One hopes that Trump can destroy the despicable Hillary in the same way. Maverick Philosopher: Can We Live Together in Peace Despite Deep Differences?

Your Say

Trumps gonna hurt that gurl. Bad.

All of Trumps experience has been backed with REAL money.

All of the tramps experience has been with stolen money.

THAT foundational diff is all the diff.

I'd personally like to see those rotten criminal klintins get the comeuppance they deserve.

You haven't seen a knock down drag-out dirty political fight yet, not until this one is over. This one will define mean-assed politics.
