    The Washington Post is running a February 28 article entitled:

    The Republican Party's implosion over Donald Trump's candidacy has arrived


    (I do not have a link - the article can be found on the WP's home page.)

    It seems that Mr. Trump has two targets on his upcoming hit list. The first is the Republican Party.

    The second is the United States of America.

    "...The most optimistic analysis of Trump as a presidential candidate is that he just doesn?t believe in positions, except the ones you adopt for strategic purposes when you?re making a deal. So you obviously can?t explain how you?re going to deport 11 million undocumented immigrants, because it?s going to be the first bid in some future monster negotiation session.

    Or maybe he just doesn?t have the discipline to sit down and work this stuff out..."

    Trump Meets the Mean Boys
    Gail Collins - FEB. 26, 2016
    The New York Times

    Thanks Mr. Trump for proving beyond a reasonable doubt the following about the Presidential elections, his advocates and the American populace by extension:
    "People as uninformed and as gullible as Americans have no future. Americans are a dead people that history is about to run over."
    Dr. Paul Craig Roberts - Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy during the Reagan Administration.

    It is sad indeed when the best thing that one can say about someone who seems about to run off with the nomination of the party of Lincoln and who has a serious chance of becoming our next president is that he doesn't really mean a word of the anti-immigrant and anti-minorities hate and poison that he is spewing in order to gain his front-runner position.

    In other words, his defense runs along the lines of "Don't worry - Trump isn't really the racist and proto-fascist that he holds himself out to be, but he is merely a liar and a con artist."

    Forgive me if I don't find that line of defense entirely reassuring. However, having said the above, I am compelled to say something in Trump's defense on one point.

    While the way he handled the David Duke "disavowal" was disgusting and frightening, blaming Trump for retweeting a Mussolini quote is a step too far.

    People have been saying that lions have more courage than sheep for hundreds of years, if not since the beginning of time. That particular quote has nothing to do with fascism or any other ideology.

    There is enough reason to be worried about the prospect of a Trump presidency without going in the direction of this particular type of absurdity.

    Meanwhile, racism and violence continue to be the order of the day at Trump's rallies, as The Hill reports on February 29 that 30 black students who showed up a Trump rally purely to listen, not to protest, were removed by the secret service without adequate explanation.

    At another Trump rally, a photographer was slammed into a table by a security officer.

    A picture that speaks millions of words: the most powerful reason why president Trump will be obligated to grant an amnesty to all unlawfully present immigrants in the US via Executive Order:

    It may look funny that image but the writing is on the wall.

    The Trump effect is finally here: a backlash against anything that represents the real estate mogul has officially started (and this is only the beginning).

    Anyone who is not already terrified by the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency should read Ruth Marcus' March 2 column in the Washington Post:

    I was wrong: President Trump would be way scarier than president Cruz.

    (Sorry, i don't have a link.)

    Marcus writes:

    "Trump on the trail demonstrates scant respect for, and even less knowledge of constitutional and legal limitations. He wants to 'open up the libel laws' - actually to undo limits imposed by the First Amendment - to make it easier to sue media outlets that dare to criticize him. He threatens those who contribute to his political opponents. 'They better be careful, they have a lot to hide,' he warned Chicago's Ricketts family, which has donated to an anti-Trump super PAC.

    He cannot tolerate protesters, ordering his goons to 'throw them out in the cold' and expressing his yearning for even more violent measures: 'I'd like to punch him in the face.' He would torture terrorism suspects...and kill their families, notwithstanding that these actions constitute war crimes under US and international law.

    ...or you could worry, as I do, about what a man like that would do in office, with the power of government at his disposal."

    I think it would be safe to say one thing: If Trump ever becomes president, courageous writers like Ruth Marcus are not going to have an easy time telling the truth about Trump. They will not only be gagged, but they could wind up, in Trump's own words, having "much worse" happen to them.

    So could anyone else in America, US citizen or immigrant, who dared to speak out against our Leader.
