    However . . . We all know every politician running is going to violate all these rights, at least Trump is honest with you, he's telling you up front he is going to do it ahead of time. :badgrin:

    There is nothing remarkable about one despot praising another. I would think the two of them should get along quite well. They have so much in common.

    Both have promised to restore their country’s greatness, without offering a specific plan. They both use crude, vulgar expressions that make them sound like an ordinary guy, even though they are both richer than sin. They are narcissists who crave media attention. And for all their obvious shortcomings, they're very popular.

    You are the one who is failing the discussion. If someone makes a point, you dismiss it as a 'left wing talking point.' If someone makes a valid analogy, you say that person is 'changing the subject of the debate.' You don't have any idea how to debate, to repond seriously to points you don't like or to recgonize valid rhetoric.

    White serial killers have murdered probably thousands of innocent people in this country. They are about 90% male. To punish all white males for their deeds is exactly the same as punishing all Muslims for the acts of a few. It is a simple and clear analogy and a valid rhetorical point. The fact you don't get it shows your limitations, not someone else's.

    Consider his ex-wife's statements about her husband keeping a copy of Mein Kampt at his bed side and his fascination with Hitler's speeches, that seem reasonable.

    In any case, these are two specific instances. It is not a consistant pattern of behavior for Mrs. Clinton.

    The problem is the comparison is not valid. How does one compare psychopaths with a religion containing one billion people?

    Answer...you can't unless you are a leftist wishing to promote BO's crazed immigration plan.

    The comparison is indeed valid. All Muslims do not think or act alike any more than all men do. Your religious prejudice is clouding your judgment. All Muslims do not march in lockstep anymore than all men do. The analogy is valid.

    Oh, and how clever of you. If you don't like my answer, it means I am marching in lockstep with other 'leftists.' The bottom line with you is in your opinion, you can never be wrong because everyone who disagrees with you is group thinking. The reality is that you are the one who is controled by propaganda and group think.
