Mr Trump considers himself savior of America.

Christians have been waiting over 2000 years for the second coming.

Will we have to wait as long for Mr Trump to save us and make America great ... again?

It's funny that only Christians will follow the Anti-Christ.

The rest of us just think he's an azzhole.

The truth about Trump's importance can be found in the sermons of the Dominionists. They wax reverent about scenarios of America brought to her knees, at which point the American people are begging for a savior.
At that point they come marching in on their white steeds and install theocracy, and a GODLY government is theirs at last.
There is a role that Dominionists feel entitled to play, that of the "great transfer of wealth from the wicked to the righteous".
You see, God shows favor to wealthy people and according to Dominionists, the poor are only that way because they are lazy, and wicked. Therefore one NEVER EVER GIVES anything to the wicked.
God commands one to take FROM the wicked.

The Dominionists believe that "God's bankers" will assist them in the great transfer of wealth just as long as they do their part in HELPING bring America to her knees.
Now do you see why they view Trump as being so important?
He is the tool SENT BY GOD TO destroy America and bring her to her knees.
Once that is accomplished, "Pastor President Pence" will ascend to the godly throne.

It is interesting that most people, EVEN NOW, cannot perceive that the USA is an oligarchic, fascist state.

I dunno, mathew, while there are certainly oligarchic and fascist overtones with a good deal of nationalism and authoritarianism thrown in for good measure (particularly in the Republican party) I believe that Corporatism is the largest issue we face as a nation today.

So now Nazis are using vehicles to kill their opponents.
One counterprotester dead in Charlottesville, VA as of this morning.

Just face the facts, people.
Half of this country is literally BEGGING for authoritarian theocratic fascism.
That's just a plain fact now, it's staring us right in the face.
Theocracy is a form of government in which a deity is the source from which all authority derives. The Oxford English Dictionary has this definition:
"a system of government in which priests rule in the name of God or a god."
Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism, characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and control of industry and commerce.
And the rest of us are so busy infighting over minutae that we are on the verge of losing democracy itself, because we will fail to rescue it and rescue the institutions from which it derives ITS strength and ITS authority.

I think you exaggerate, Jeff. It's about a third of the country that wants authoritarianism. About a fifth just vote Republican because they don't want to think about it. Even the Nazi party didn't have that level of support, and look what they managed!

God, does this sound familiar?:
Quote:
In March 1932 Hitler ran for President against the incumbent President Paul von Hindenburg, polling 30.1% in the first round and 36.8% in the second against Hindenburg's 49 and 53%. By now the SA had 400,000 members, and its running street battles with the SPD and Communist paramilitaries (who also fought each other) reduced some German cities to combat zones. Paradoxically, although the Nazis were among the main instigators of this disorder, part of Hitler's appeal to a frightened and demoralised middle class was his promise to restore law and order. Overt antisemitism was played down in official Nazi rhetoric, but was never far from the surface. Germans voted for Hitler primarily because of his promises to revive the economy (by unspecified means), to restore German greatness and overturn the Treaty of Versailles, and to save Germany from communism.
(Wikipedia)

Okay, if you say so:

KKK supports Trump - Trumpers approve

Eric Trump Gets "Adolf Hickler" Haircut

Quote:
The haircut is identical to the one sported by American neo-Nazi, Richard Spencer (picture below), and very similar to the one that Adolf Hitler himself wore during his racist reign of death in Germany in the 1930ís and 1940's.
