    The people who hate Trump are talking of the Hitler-like impressions he leaves...and those are present. The things he says are suggestive of the "brown shirts", in the early thirties.
    The people who like Trump have bought the lemonade. He's going to make America 'great' again, never mind how.
    In any case, one half of the two party system seems exhausted and powerless. And the resultant conversation DOES NOT need an informed electorate. (see the juvenilia all around us)
    1) How much of the destruction of the Republican party has been self-inflicted?
    2) To what extent do the Democrats benefit in this years election?
    3) Is the idea of self-governing possible with less than 2 coherent parties?

    I wouldn't worry about it. Donald Trump has some good ideas, but has already shot himself in the foot. By trash talking others, using so much foul language, and alienating most latinos, muslims, and women, The Donald has guaranteed himself a loss in the general election, even if he becomes the GOP nominee. Women especially (who make up the largest block of voters) REALLY don't like Trump. Unless things change very quickly, we'll be saying "Madam President" very soon.

    I like the idea of winning and Trump sure seems to be in favor of winning.

    For now. Eventually you're going to get sick of winning.

    The Brown Shirts are the ones shouting down Trump. The 1% er's and black lives matter folks are the brown shirts. People should be able to speak without being shouted down.

    Since it is the libtards shouting down, of course the media is all for it.

    Romney is not a true republican either. He has flip flopped from liberal positions just like he accuses Trump of.
    This is all probably a setup for a brokered convention. When Trump is exposed by the news media for all of his past antics most people will not want him and support a brokered convention despite it's flaws. That will condition people into accepting the establishment hand picking a candidate. It will then become the norm.
    Do you really think the establishment would delay a replacement for Scalia if they were not confident they are in complete control?

    What is a True Republican? If you mean establishment lower taxes on big business, then of course Romney is a true Republican.

    Yeah, Trump can barely get his message across with so many "1%ers" and "black lives matter folks" preventing him from voicing his opinion without getting shouted down.

    It is what is causing all the problems at the moment. Trump couldn't hold his speech because he was being intimidated and shouted down.

    Do you deny that Trump is encouraging physical violence?

    Heckling at political rallies has existed and been expected throughout the history of any democratic republic.

    Heckling is not charging the stage.

    That happened one time. The idea that Trump cannot get his ideas across is ludicrous. The media salivates to cover him doing or saying absolutely anything. If he had any real ideas, he'd have said them somewhere by now.

    Not at all. Do you deny that the other side uses physical violence too?
