Revenge of the Oligarch Billionaires

Not only have many "neocons" threatened to bolt the Republican Party (in a show of their loyalty) if Trump is nominated, the billionaire oligarchs are in full frontal assault against The Donald. Apparently there are terrifying attack ads vilifying Trump being aired almost non-stop which are funded by billionaires. These are oligarchs who normally run the Republican Party, but now cannot due to Trump's own finances and his high media profile plus his attraction of the inconsequential and unwashed Other - actual voters whose only influence is their vote.
"How could the anti-Trump forces defeat him in Ohio, Florida and Illinois? With the same tactics used to shrink Trump’s victory margins in Virginia, Louisiana and Kentucky to well below what polls had predicted.

In every primary upcoming, Trump is under a ceaseless barrage of attack ads on radio, TV, cable and social media, paid for by super PACs with hoards of cash funneled in by oligarchs.

But Trump, who is self-funding his campaign, has spent next to nothing on ads answering these attacks, or promoting himself or his issues. He has relied almost exclusively on free media.

Yet no amount of free media can match the shellfire falling on him every hour of every day in every primary state.

Our Principles PAC, backed by Nebraska’s billionaire Ricketts family, has poured millions into trashing Trump. American Future Fund is dumping $1.75 million in Florida this week; Club for Growth $1.5 million.

Hedge-fund billionaire Paul Singer is backing the Conservative Solutions PAC, which has dumped millions into anti-Trump ads and plans to spend more than $7 million between March 1 and 15, with $4 million of that going into Florida. The super PAC pile-on is unprecedented.

How well Trump fares in Michigan and Mississippi, measured against how well he was doing in polls last week, will reveal just how successful super PAC savagery has been in changing hearts and minds.

Can millionaires and billionaires who back open borders, mass immigration, globalization and the disappearance of nation states into transnational collectives overwhelm with their millions spent in ads the patriotic movements that arose this year to the wonderment of America and the world?

Has that proud 18th century boast of Americans, “Here, sir, the people rule!” given way to the rule of the oligarchs?"

The battle in this country between voters and oligarchs is precisely what makes this election year so interesting. But Oligarchs always win, don't they? We'll see. More HERE.

What it boils down to is these two issues: first, speech is freer for the uber-rich; second, just how stupid are American voters these days?

I think we've found something we disagree on. Trump is a very deceptive man. My only hope is there will be neutral delegates, or not enough to cinch the votes of the delegates. The reason is then the delegates would be free to vote for a better candidate in the second round.

Donald Drumpf (his real name) is lying to you, he is not funding his own campaign, he made a personal loan to his personal campaign and will pay the loan back, with interest, with the campaign contributions from others. Thus far, it totals over 7 million from outside contributions, and he loaned himself I believe 17 million. Did you see the John Oliver piece about him on YouTube? Google it (John Oliver Drumpf), if you haven't, it's worth it.

The problems are too numerous to list, but I will highlight a few things. Most important is that his sister is a far left pro abortion judge! HERE is the article about it. Trump is very pro abortion too. We all know what that means, and the ramifications of that, if he nominated her to the supreme court. It would be tilted to the far left for a very long time. In contrast, listen to this answer, and this fantastic response to an Atheist. At the very least, Rubio knows he's held accountable to God, for any lies. Trump doesn't think it matters, nor cares if it does.

Also, HERE is a great article you should read before putting your eggs in that basket with holes. It's what us actual conservatives feel about that man. Spoiler, it's not good.

He's not our man. I know many like him, and they cannot be trusted for his word.

All I ask is that you do the research. Do not buy into that saying that it's "good" to vote for the lesser of two evils. Trump and Clinton do not deserve the presidency, so don't give either the delegates to tie it up in a bow. Let's keep all of them under the number of delegates and let the electoral college fight and debate it out, for a better candidate. To which, would be far more entertaining than Trump winning and us losing the Constitution and respect of the world. We're better than this. He's a bad Apple.

Respectfully, Dan

I'm not advocating for any candidate, but I do present what is known about them as far as I know it myself. Rubio is a consummate liar and poseur. Cruz is a fairly known quantity as a conservative. Trump is the only one who thought immigration is destructive to sovereignty, and brought the subject to the fore.

The Republican establishment is still the bigger force in terms of death-grip on the Party. And they are quasi-socialists with no compunction for burning the constitution.

Therefore, the first part of the necessary agenda is to destroy the Republican establishment rich elites; then to secure the borders; then to secure the Supreme Court; then to eliminate the unelected chokehold by the administration agency bureaucracies, including eliminating several agencies altogether and neutralizing the Leftist management of those departments and agencies which remain.

Would Rubio do that? I seriously doubt it. Would Cruz do that? Maybe. Would Trump do that? I think it's entirely possible.

It's odd. The Republican congress can't bring itself to hinder the black-ish leftist president. But the Republicans in congress hate Trump to the extent that any serious mis-step would be immediately condemned, and wind up in Federal and Supreme Court.

Remember, The Donald promised not to bolt the Party. Now its the hatred of The Donald that has prompted the elite establishmentarians to look at bolting the party and creating a third party in order to destroy Trump and the party itself. The Republican establishment is the biggest evil in the USA at the present time. It's complete destruction and eradication is essential to keeping the constitution as the basis for government in the USA.

"Donald Drumpf (his real name)"
The birth name of his ancestor, FTFY. Also, who the fuck cares, my great-grandma also changed her name. I don't see how his ancestry is relevant here.

"Did you see the John Oliver piece about him on YouTube?"
>John Oliver
Into the trash he goes.

As someone living in a postcommunist country, I have a... realistic view of politics - if Trump turns out not to be a crook, it will be a surprise for me.

Nevertheless, as an anon put it, voting for Trump isn't hope. It's desperation. Clinton = catastrophe, Sanders = communist catastrophe (and won't get the nomination becaue his followers won't put down the dude weed lmao on election day, just circlejerk on Reddit), Kasich doesn't matter, Rubot will remind us that it's time to dispel the fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing - he knows exactly what he's doing. It's time to dispel the fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing - he knows exactly what he's doing. It's time to dispel the fiction that Barack Obama doesn't know what he's doing - he knows exactly what he's doing. Cruz commits voter fraud - bussing his followers over caucus sites, Big Brother-style personal reminders to people that they should vote for him, spreading fake information that Carson dropped out (Iowa) and now the same with Rubio (Hawaii). Not to mention he's actually Canadian and his wife wrote "a plan to eliminate US borders", the list of things on him may be even bigger than on Shillary.
I can't see any other candidate being better than Trump.
