The problem with being a dictator, sooner or later everything goes to shit because the primary concern will always be to keep being the dictator and damn the consequences.

All Heil Hillary! All Heil Hilary! Sieg Hilary! Wait I thought this was the joke forum because where accusing the US President as a modern day Caesar or Hitler. Who knew someone actually was serious about this topic. He's being accused of being a Dictator. I thought people believed he was joke...a tool...an incompenent buffoon. I am a little slow here which appellation is he again. He must be some dancing fool superstar because he is definitely dancing cirles around his enemies.

No smr, as usual you have little if any idea on what you are talking about.

He's being accused of wanting to be an actual dictator rather than being dicratorial.

That he is dictatorial is beyond dispute, but no doubt yoy will try.

I feel the same way if Hilary had one! That's irony for you.

*Sigh*

smr, you need to understand this: A person can be multiple things at once. Like you, a self-described multiracial mutt playing foot-soldier for racists. Or like Trump, a pretty stupid and apparently quite senile old man with power fantasies being both incompetent and authoritarian.

Are you saying he's dictatorial because of the number of executive orders he's issued? I'm not sure we can use that meter stick until after his 4 year term.

No Ywing.

The biggest single indicator is his well publicised demand for personal loyalty to him.

Ahh well I would agree he's pretty overbearing and can be dictatorial. Though I cant say I'm surprised since many business owners are that way. Not really an effective way to run a country though.

Or a company for that matter..

Demanding loyalty - there's an oxymoron if I ever heard one.

If Trump is using dictatorial powers then "Just Do It"; declassify the FISA warrants. Let all that is hidden be revealed.
