To save our Nation, the Democratic Party MUST come together to vigorously support its nominee.

At the present time no Democratic candidate can rightfully say that he/she will likely win the party's nomination. So now is precisely the time that Democratic candidates - - and Democratic voters - - must resolve to fully support the eventual Democratic nominee with their votes, their time, their work and their contributions.

"Two days before President Donald Trump arrives in Phoenix for his first "outside-the-swamp" rally in Arizona, a phantom Craigslist ad popped up.

"Actors needed," itread.

The ad, posted early on Sunday, wanted to hire people to pose as Trump supporters for the rally, with "minorities especially desired to hold pro-Trump signs, cheer on command, and show diversity."

Those interested were asked to reply with a head-shot photo and a resume. The rate? Ten dollars per hour to stand in Phoenix's predicted 105-degree heat Tuesday. "

www.azcentral.com

On Saturday, Trump held an official event at the Dutch oil and gas company Shell's Chemicals Petrochemical Complex in Monaca, Pennsylvania. A large crowd of union contractors working at the site, which is in the process of becoming a fully functional natural gas plant, were in attendance for Trump's event.

But Shell came under scrutiny over the weekend after a report in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette documented how union workers for the company were offered the choice of either attending the Trump speech, or skipping the event and not being paid for the day.

The outlet reported workers were told to expect to stand for several hours during the Trump speech and that if they did not scan their work ID badges at the beginning of the day, they would not be paid.

So obviously someone on the left planted a fake ad aimed at extremely uninformed and gullible people.....like Nixon. The same people that the Russians targeted with those really bad facebook ads.

Dems are screwed again. Bernie is leading but the DNC won't let it happen because he will dry up their money train. They will cheat him out, Bernie supporters will see it happened again and will sit on their hands again and the Dems will blame Russia again. Learning from last time is not their strength.

The answer is very easy. The problem is the Democrat party is so smug today that they dare not do any introspection of their own party to identify the flaws and improve them. Instead, they blame everything wrong on the GOP and take credit for everything that is right. This has alienated many people to the point where the Dems have a hard time winning.

The bigger issue from a 10k foot view is that when Reps are not in power, they do the exact same damn thing. The only difference is they aren't smug about it because they don't claim moral superiority over the other party, only Dems do that. Reps can't be smug because they would actually have to care about the people over profit/power, so they just end up being heartless ------. So you choose either the smug or the heartless ------. The douche or the turd sandwich.

The answer truly is not complicated, it just takes objectivity which is the lacking feature of both parties.

LOL so they trucked enough people in to fill an 11,000 seat venue. Impressive. /s

www.nytimes.com

Look at the crowd. Scared, old white people. The dominant demographic outside of that is stereotypically goateed podunk losers angry that they can no longer make a decent living with little or no intelligence, skills or training and their miserable looking spawn.

For some attendees, this was their first Trump rally. Shane Stocker, a 45-year-old jet engine maker for G.E. Aviation from Lebanon, N.H., waited in line for an hour.

"I do think he's one of the best presidents we've had in a while," he said, citing tax cuts, loosening regulation and "lots more jobs."

Mr. Stocker voted for Trump in 2016. "After the job Obama was doing, we needed a different direction," he said. "He was breaking the law left and right and nobody was paying attention to it."

"With Trump you don't have to worry about it," Mr. Stocker added. "He's the most vetted president in our country's history. Since he announced he was running for president they've been doing nothing but investigating him."

The president "is not prim or proper," he said. "I like that. He doesn't sugar coat things for people. And if you don't like it, too bad."

That's your average Trumper.

Confirmation bias wrapped ignorance with a rotten cherry of Dunning-Kruger on top.

More old people like Mackris who want the government to keep shelling out money but don't want to pay enough taxes to cover it.

Tax Cuts without a balanced budget are just loans for the future generation to pay back.

Maybe its time for a wealth tax to pay some of it back and a social security financial needs test.

Actually, all I was getting at is: Any one of the Democratic candidates is far better than Trump on the basis of character. And since I can't get past Trump's lack of character to even think about his policies and deeds, I will be working for, contributing to and voting for the eventual Democratic nominee, whether or not my favored candidate wins the nomination. If Democratic voters decide now that they will do likewise - - and if Democratic candidates pledge now to support and work for the eventual Democratic nominee and turn out the vote - - Trump will lose in November.

The Democrat field is no worse than the GOP field was in 2016 and in many ways FAR better. I don't see any weak ill prepared candidates for example. It's early and at this point in 2016 Trump was still the joke that didn't stand a chance of nomination. The problem the Democrats have in winning is the brainwashing that has been done for decades by the Right. To quote Ron White "You Can't Fix Stupid" and that is what GOP voters are today.

No matter how much the right says there is, there is no liberal equivalent to the media outlets, money brokers and mouthpieces not to mention the populist messages of the right.

Dems actually getting past their egos long enough to vote for whomever the Dem primary voters select as the candidate other than their personal favorite is the easy answer the article gives.

Although I do like the shipping yuge amounts of KFC to the WH solution.

If Barrack were able to run, he'd be leading Trump by 20 points in the polls.... but he could still lose if the far left decided to leave the shiv in and not vote or throw their votes away again.

And I really don't know much about Bloomberg, but I would likely trust the opinion of someone like Hagbard who lived through his admin. Even so, he couldn't be worse than Trump.

Vlad might not be worse than Trump. At least he could go shirtless and make the alt-right faint.

Our Constitution is a document of hope and trust, loosely drawn because the Founding Fathers universally recognized and respected certain mores and norms that formed the glue that held it all together seamlessly.

Donald J. Trump recognizes no mores, no norms. Those are for fools, he believes. He is a strict authoritarian - - as long as HE is the authoritarian. He views Law as abhorrent to his rightful dictatorship. And with the help and support of the former Republican Party, he has positioned himself above the Law, viewing himself as the only legitimate creator of same.

Trump is the new Fhrer. Now, with the help and support of the new Trump Party, he will complete his disassembly of the former United States.

Mitt Romney was right: Trump is playing members of the American voting public for suckers.
