I think the response to the assault on the Capitol was very gentle by US standards. I doubt any future disruption will be dealt with so delicately.Archery1969 wrote: ↑Sat Mar 18, 2023 8:32 pmYou have to go to the real USA heartlands to understand why, not New York, San Francisco or California where most tourists go. The majority of Trump supports only care about the USA, most don't even have a passport and are not interested in outsiders views about their country, state or town.greenmark wrote: ↑Sat Mar 18, 2023 5:48 pmHonestly the advent of Trump has scared me more than any time in my life. I don't understand why he is so popular. He is no statesman. He snuggled up to Putin. Was this a cunning ruse to influence a dictator.Or did he feel he was in the company of equals. Wallowing in undeserved wealth?
Very few of them watch international news, not well educated, hate federal government and will have more than one firearm. Problem is there is still rather allot of them population wise. Don't forget around 60 million voted for Trump last time. Ofcourse not all of those would follow him into a burning building but lets say 10% did, 6 million would be a big problem even in the USA, imagine that many following a mad individual here, Police and Army would be outnumbered 60 to 1.
I agree, scary stuff.
Be interesting to see how the secret service handle him being arrested as he is still protected by them. Authorities try to put handcuffs on him, there is a scuffle, what do the sercret service do in such a situation ?
You can't have yobs roaming through the corridors of power putting democratically elected people in fear of their lives. Trump is a looney that deserves to be locked up if the law says he has committed a crime.
