You can't run a dictatorship from the bottom up...it is called a revolution.

Reader comment on item: Why I Just Quit the Republican Party

Trump's is just a voice for this revolution of the American people...This is a movement from the ground up. Hillary's is a movement from the top down. You can't run a dictatorship from the bottom, folks!

Trump has called for NATO to get in the game...he has not asked for remuneration for the U.S.A. as Daniel Pipes infers but for all nations to do their part as America has done, and more. As an ashamed Canadian, whose leftist leader has refused to live up to our obligations in NATO, I say we deserved this attack from Trump. I am ashamed of our leadership that is NOT living up to our country's obligations to NATO.

You don't seem to realize that a liberal judge will no longer defend your constitutional rights as your recently deceased Supreme Court judge, Scalia, did...and a new liberal judge will possibly live to make poor decisions for 40 YEARS. I just hope that Americans have more wisdom to see this is a populist movement, not a totalitarian one.
