Yeah, I suppose he's a cuddly bigot, too. Maybe I over blew the comparison to Mussolini.
Apologies to the Donald. May you ease yourself out of the running.

No, you were fine. My reference to trains was a deliberate reference to Mussolini although I don't think he was actually that good for train scheduling. I was just trying to bring up fascism as a reference to businesses controlling government. Anything after that canard was fair game.

Well, fascism, like communism, but also like socialism, are all contraries to capitalism.
They all involve central government's over-restricting freedoms and violating individual
rights, whereas capitalism, to the extent it is realized, promotes freedom.
But enough of politics and economics in this thread.

Who's going to be the next one to drop out of the race for prez?

For some reason the Twilight Zone episode "He's Alive" currently comes to mind.
