    Trump Calls for an End to the Birthright Citizenship.

    Among the many ridiculous things this bombastic buffoon has said lately is that he would like to end the birthright citizenship part of the US Constitution so that people who have children in America can't become citizens.

    He's also like to deport all 20 million illegal immigrants, then let the "good ones" back in. He, of course would decide who the good ones are.

    Strangely, he leads the polls....is America getting more stupid?

    Minor point on that. I am sure you meant the part about children born in the US don't automatically become citizens.
    I believe that is what I read from his rant on immigration.

    I think it is more about the stupidity of polls than any actual popularity of this buffoon.
    I got a call from one of the pollsters, and they way they ask the question, I suspect many respondents just give the first name that comes to mind.
    And Trump is definitely getting the most press these days, so his name is going to pop up a lot.

    I sure hope I am right about that.

    Well, one good thing came out of Trump's surge in the polls -- I finally got off my butt and renewed my passport (just in case).

    I'm not very worried about the crazy stuff he says. It is the season where each of the clown car candidates try to prove that they are more right-wingy than the others to get the nomination. I consider Trump to be a little less dangerous than a few of the others. And I must admit that it is mildly amusing to watch the others rush to sound even more right-wingy that whatever Trump said that day.

    I confess that I hold a little fascination for where all this will take us.
    I think Americans need to think much more deeply about the impact their vote for the members of Congress from their districts will have on the future, than the impact of their vote for President.
    If we continue to elect idiots to congress, we will continue this downhill slide.

    Despite an approval rating of 10-15% for Congress, the rate for re-electing the same jerks ranges between 80-95%. It is amazing to me. The only reason I can think of is that either the voters think that everyone else in Congress except their guy is the problem, or they are so lazy that they just vote for the familiar name. Neither possibility has good implications for our future.

    Trump can trump all he wants but he needs a constitutional amendment, something many Americans Are Too Stupid to understand.

    He is less dangerous. He doesn't believe most of what he is saying. That's what his friends, like Bill Clinton & Howard Stern, say.

    I think Trump is just enjoying all the publicity he has been getting lately. No, I don't take him seriously.
