Not to fix anything. Just to do as much damage as possible to the US Government.

I agree Greger. Trump and his supporters  are attracted to chaos and want to inflict it on others, and they understand it to be a viable strategy for destroying our multicultural society.

Trump and his supporters agree with this statement: “We cannot fix the problems in our social institutions, we need to tear them down and start over.”

Trump and his supporters are so discontent that they are willing to mobilize against the current political order to see if what emerges from the resulting chaos has something better in stock for them.

Hmm

I will also submit that modern Conservatives exhibit the “dark triad” of human behavior — Machiavellianism, psychopathy and narcissism and that is Donald J Trump in a nutshell.

Hmm

This thread validates these points pretty well. smile

Trumpism is not and never has been modern conservatism! Trump is populist pretending to be Republican/Conservative. The only thing that you got right in this comment pdx rick is the desire of Republicans/Conservatives to slash taxes on corporations. No corporation has or will ever pay any taxes. All of the money all businesses get, whether it is a small business on Main St. or the largest corporation in the world, comes from us, the consumers. If we don't buy a product from a business it does not make any money. We are the source of revenue for all businesses. The taxes all businesses pay is part of the price we pay for their products.

A revolution that failed because the Republican Party lost its way thanks to a hostile takeover by Donald J. Trump.

Oh puh-leeeze. rolleyes How is Donald Trump any different from the T-Party? Trump is a continuation of the T-Party. In fact, I dare share that the T-Party shaped Donald Trump's platform. Hmm
