At this point in history, ANYBODY is going to be an improvement over the orange jackass bully.

teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

Well, there was a time I thought ANYBODY would be an improvement over Tony Blair.

I thought Bush Jr was bad at the time. But hindsight is 2020. Nobody can tell me that even as bad as he was, he'd have dare done what Trump has done. 

I'd take Jeb or Mitt over Trump. 

50 former republican intel agents warned America not to elect him during his run. 700 nationwide, politically diverse prosecutors during the impeachment process all agreed anyone outside that office would have been indicted. This is not politics as normal.

I don't like that Bloomburg is a billionaire, but I'll take him over Trump any day of the week.

Yes, hindsight is 20/20, but attempting to see into the future is more difficult.

To assume that Trump is anything less than harmful to our republic, at this point is foolish.

It isn't a matter of seeing into the future like bullshit psychics. It is a matter of historians, and political experts who have studied human history, like a meteorologist studies the atmosphere. 

One cannot predict the nanosecond a hurricane starts, they cant even predict on a hour to hour, day to day basis what the category will be. But they CAN and do know the conditions that have the potential to lead to such.

Politically speaking, in human history, dictators and tyrants that rise all use the same tactics. Vilify political rivals. Scapegoat and vilify outsiders. Attack dissent. Offer themselves up as the only solution.

Conditions can lead to a cat 1 or a cat 5, and the outcomes are different every time. But the conditions that lead to the start of a hurricane are still the same, regardless of category or outcome. 

The only thing that stops tyranny is vigilance, not assuming.

Even conservative presidential scholars rank Trump in the bottom five presidents we've ever had. I'm not hoping for a Bloomberg nomination, but he has at least some grasp of responsible governance, even if he didn't always achieve it. Pence would be an improvement over Trump. The bar is very, very low.

And yet you assume that anyone would be an improvement over Trump. You can’t possibly know that unless you can see into the future.
