    The GOP is working to maintain its choice of congress, Democrats aren't going to side with the guy.

    It's gridlock you can believe in.

    I don't care either way to be honest, but I doubt that he would be elected at this point.

    • He could spend billions on a wall.
    • He could ban Muslims from entering the U.S., simply for being Muslim.
    • He could re-institute torture.
    • He could break with NATO.
    And those are just things he's talked about doing.

    There's no end to the possibilities that exist beyond those stated goals.

    Someone should create a thread for Hillary. The difference is that the best you can hope for with Hillary is that she only starts one war.

    He can claim to ignore Congress, but some actions wouldn't hold up under Supreme Court scrutiny. I don't think many members of Congress or the Supreme Court would side with his actions.

    Economic meltdown is one thing that could happen. He wants to spend a ton of money hiring a new deportation force and building a wall with no guarantee that Mexico or anyone but the American taxpayers will pay for it. Additionally he wants to build up the military in both troops as well as military hardware. All while cutting taxes. A recipe for disaster.

    And really "what's the worst that could happen" isn't exactly a confident position. But it would be a funny campaign ad:

    VOTE for me, what's the worse that could happen?
    I'm Donald Trump and I approve this message.

    Policy wise, you are right. There is likely much congress can prevent him from doing. The greater fear though, in my book, is the combination of his love of going off script and his love to be outrageous. If he wins, I will be holding my breath every time he speaks, worried that he will say some nonsense that enters his head which, in turn, pisses off the head of a state with less controls and armed conflict results.

    It doesn't matter who tells him. If he doesn't have the authority to do something, he will run into barriers when he tries to implement such nonsense.

    Exactly...people laugh off the fact he could do a ton of damage. Yes, there are checks and balances but still, the fact is that bad things can and likely will happen god forbid he gets elected.

    There is no way I'd EVER have DJT my president, at least not by choice and I think he's sunk himself so low that it's not gonna happen. He is grasping for straws now. Can you say "Madam President"?! I can. :D

    • He could open his big mouth, make the kind of baseless accusations as he has been doing for the last two years thinking he's going to bluff, fool the rest of the world or just be kidding and spark WWIII. We can debate the possibilities of this happening, but why put an unsuitable person in the position, the motivation is we we won't feel the need to debate it. ;)

    or he can be like Hillary & Obama and instead of threats just bomb Syria after a cease fire is agreed and work against the Russians again in Syria where Obama is bombing that nation w/o a declaration of war.

    Don't ever accuse me again of making choices that support my preconceived notions. So Ole Trust has you loving the Russians too? Show me a link from something other than a Right Wing Rag that condemns U.S. Policy in Syria.

    do you seriously need a link to condemn our actions in the M-E? are you unable to say it's wrong all on your own? knowing who the enemy is and bombing the wrong nation is not only stupid, it's treasonous my friend.

    The consequences of failing to become the chosen one, could be devastating for HRC. She's got no life away from the center of attention, she's already suffering from desperation so great it's taking its toll on her health.

    Her extreme desperation shows in every fabricated story and personal assault on Donald Trump. The severity of a loss is generating so much concern amongst her corrupt associates there's an army of Hillary lovers and supporters all attacking Trump as though their lives depended on her victory.

    History in the making, this sideshow is only getting better.

    #3 would certainly be challenged before the Supreme Court. I realize that didn't work out well in 2001 to 2008. #2 would also be challenged (snicker) in a similar manner. I can't find any laws that would allow the executive branch to deny entry to an arbitrary group.

    just how hard would it be to say " I am not a Muslim"? and get it? hell as you said challenged by SCOTUS ASAP.

    NOW if a DEMOCRAT did something unconstitutional THEN SCOTUS would simply look the other way as they did with Obama passing indefinite detention w/o trial.
