Thread: The Cult of Trump

  1. #1

    The Cult of Trump

    I saw this snippet from the LP in an article about Thomas Massie.

    I thought it was worth sharing as I think he echoes what many on here feel.

    "Most Libertarians think it was a good idea to require a vote," said Ken Moellman, former chairman of the Libertarian Party of Kentucky.

    Moellman, who ran for state treasurer in 2011, said what's being forgotten is how members of Congress take an oath to uphold the Constitution and work for their constituents — not to serve the president.

    "A large segment of the GOP has turned into the cult of Trump, with loyalty to Trump being more important than the Constitution, the national debt or anything else," he said. "While Trump claimed he was going to 'drain the swamp' it appears that he has instead seized it by eminent domain, and wields it for his own use."

    The GOP has been like that for a very long time. Dubya had them acting like a cult. Reagan certainly did, and so did Nixon.

    The strange part--the new wrinkle--is the Legend of Trump's Anti-Establishmentness.

    What's about to happen to this country isn't funny. But the Legend of Trump's Anti-Establishmentness certainly is.

    Well, he has an “R” after his name, after all.

    The largest spending president in the history of this nation, democrats could only have wet dreams about.

    Convincing republicans that it is good to take private property and hand it to the Feds for other people’s ”safety”, eliminating private contract rights by making undocumented people “legal” to Fund the Fed, mandate minimum wage, and USMCA which is the North American Union and $15 minimum wage, International Labour Organization, etc.

    Todays republicans are yesterdays commies.

    But a bone here and there makes everything bliss. Because “R”.
    “The right to life is the source of all rights—and the right to property is their only implementation. Without property rights, no other rights are possible. Since man has to sustain his life by his own effort, the man who has no right to the product of his effort has no means to sustain his life. The man who produces while others dispose of his product, is a slave.”

    It does feel a bit like W. circa 2003.

    The problem with Trump is that he will not tolerate dissent. He ran Amash out of the party and now he wants to do the same to Massie.

    They didn't even try that to Ron Paul (and a few others). He was at least tolerated.

    This is something different and VERY dangerous.

    I've been saying this from the get-go and was called all kinds of names. And, I have to admit that no one has pinned Trump better that Johnny. More valid today than during the campaign.

    This isnt new.

    It was the same with Bush.

    People defended all of his infringements.

    Its not just the Right.

    Glenn Greenwald back in 2011 wrote a great piece about the Obama zombies.

    Progressives and the Ron Paul fallacies
    "An idea whose time has come cannot be stopped by any army or any government" - Ron Paul.

    "To learn who rules over you simply find out who you arent allowed to criticize."

    This whole thread is bull$#@!.

    All the Trump supporters I've seen supported Massie.. even Scott Adams supports Massie, he looked up Massie on twitter and it turned out Massie already followed him so he sent him a DM. Massie said he watches a lot of his periscopes and is a big fan, they had a nice little twitter convo.

    It doesn't make any sense to attack people who support Massie, wtf are you doing?

    Even Massie called Trump and said no hard feelings, Massie is still a Trump supporter and wants to work with him.

    Seems to be more of the same..
    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Dubya's cult was legendary and stood the test of times for years of Iraqi Freedom blunder. And that carnation of cult only flip-flopped when it became impossible to defend the great leader.

    He is nothing but a bully. Trump can go to hell. Hope Biden wins and the cult will then disappear/.

    Nice video. He s a bully and im saddened by it because he's picking on some of the best limited government conservatives in the House

    You never see him call out a neocon or statist like he did to Massie the other day do you? Crazy.

    Dude, your thread isn't about Trump, it is about Trump supporters - Trump supporters who support Massie.

    I suppose you can do both if you want however Trump is losing support because he picks on people like Massie.

    He is out of order and should be replaced.

    I think he's gone in the fall.

    it's not worth arguing with him if you challenge his argument he puts you on ignore. Trump supporters overwhelmingly support Massie but the shills are trying to divide and conquer.

    You are misinformed. You are reading the headlines while the lead is buried. There was a PPE shortage world wide because most of it is made in China and China imported PPE from other countries for their medical professionals to use. People are staying home from non essential jobs because if people were to use the medical system just at normal levels we would run out of PPE. Doctors would have to refuse to even do medicine because it goes against the Hippocratic oath. It would be malpractice to do otherwise.

    Trump doesn't pick on people like Massie, he picks on people like Hillary Clinton and Adam Schiff.

    Trump supporters know Trump and they are over it, and so is Massie. In fact, Massie got so much press that he will probably be more likely to win his re-election now. So Trump in all likelihood helped Massie.

    Trump is the one praising Kerry, not Massie.

    Massie never joined the freedom caucus because he saw what was coming. They now suck up to Trump.

    What he did was help Massie get re-elected, that is all that matters. That, and Trump supporters support Massie.
