Why do the Republicans always play into the Democrats hands?

I've noticed that the Republican Party keeps doing crap that gets ripped to shreds and dragged through the mud by Liberal Media. It's almost like they're either dumb as bricks or they're doing this crap on purpose. Why one purpose? Why not? The general masses like me don't care what goes on in our government anyway, as a result many are easily swayed whether they vote left or right. So they put on a show to divide and then they set out to conquer as they further bend this country to their whims. Personally if Trump was serious about winning, he'd be doing all he can to win the masses over. He'd even do as I suggested here: and let his children write his speeches. I'm sorry but Trump Jr., Evonca, and Eric write his speeches, as they sound more well spoken and credible than he tends to. I mean if watching several seasons of "The Apprentice" has taught me anything, those three work along side their dad, so why not here? Why not help him show that he has good relations with whites, minorities, muslims, the LGBT, and women? Why not strive to ensure that the Liberal Media has no stick to beat him with? I'm tempted to think that he's not in it to win, but to merely put on a show so people will be swayed to vote for Hillary as directed by the media. After all if there's anything I've learned from the masses is that they're dumb enough to eat their own feces if they were told it was healthy. So how can no one take advantage of that?
So I saw snippets of last night's republican convention, mostly Trump Jr.'s speech regarding his dad. And honestly, given what he said and how he said it, I...

@Hanyouyomi After reading your post I went to listen to Donald Trump's acceptance speech, just to hear what he had to say and posted my thoughts on the subject.

@just4him I read that, and for all we know you could be right. It just feels manipulative by all parties involved. Especially with the democratic party lacking in subtlety with wanting to make Hillary of all people our first femal president. And I don't wanna put with eight years of Republicans being critical of Hilary, while democrats use her as a meat, while trying to play coy. "Oh, we should've known to not elect Hillary, I guess a WOMAN can't lead this country after all." Especially since I just went through eight years of them doing that to Obama while making race relations in America look worst than they already are. I'm tired of the lies and manipulation... Being a hermit is looking really good right now...

It's WAY too late for Trump to ensure that the "liberal Media" (which doesn't exist!) has no stick to beat him with. He throws fuel on the fire every time he opens that big mouth of his and lets the hateful rhetoric spill out. The thing is, some in the GOP are frustrated and unhappy with him because of his racist, sexist, xenophobic, anti-Semitic and anti gay views but as somebody said awhile back they really shouldn't be shocked that after years of "dog-whistles" from some within their party someone like Donald Trump started to bark!

@anniepa I wouldn't say he's "racist," but rather a jingoist, and there's a difference as jingoists like him are tolerable towards racial minorities in their country, but despise foreigners. It's an odd mindset, but a mindset jingoists have. That doesn't excuse Trump of his idiocy though, and a lot of what he's saying about the system and the government and economy, well is old news to cynics like me. Also with the way you start your comment, I feel you might've intended to post it here: Because in all honesty, if he wanted to win this he should've assured minorities and secured their votes before pulling this $h!t AT THE LAST FRACKING MINUTE!!!!
So earlier this morning, surfing the net, and I see this little article(Link: ) of Trump saying 'I'm with you!' To the Blacks rallying for an end of...

@Hanyouyomi You're right, I'll have to post in that other discussion for sure. I get your point about him being a jingoist but I still think he's also a racist. He's actually a white nationalist and has quite a few white nationalist and white supremacist supporters whose "tweets" he's retweeted frequently. His new campaign "CEO" is part of the alt-right which is the new way of saying white supremacist.

@anniepa What you're not being told is that some o those "white supremacists" are democrats, who probably flew the coop when Obama was put in office. In fact that you'll never learn academia or the democratic party, because they're too busy trying to look like the "good guys." But the Democratic Prty started in the South by the Confederates after the Civil War. The KKK was started by bitter democrats who despised the changes that were occuring in the U.S. I mean what do you think "Political Correctness" and this soft language talk is? As a black man, I shouldn't be reminded of my ethnicity everyo time a white person addresses me, nor should it be assumed that I'm offended by racial slurs. I think peopl are dumber than worms for using them, but ultimately ain't my problem, so it doesn't bug me. That being said not all democrats are bad folks, and if the people who nominated Trump are any indication, some Republicans are dimwitted jingoist a-holes. But again, that's their problem... What's also pparently the Republcan Party's problem is finding embassadors to speak to the American people who come off as intelligent and approachable to independent voters like me, who are thinking that maybe the Monarchy that the colonies were under in the 1700s were probably better than this. Because if this election season is any indication, I'm surrounded by sheep who wouldn't mind living under a monarchy, and I can't stand it! Dx

Trump is so arrogant that he will not allow his children to direct his speech. I think those Republicans are very reluctant to support him, but they have no choice since that is what the people want. It is just a pity that Ron Paul is not a candidate. He is the best of them all.

@scheng1 Then he's as dumb as I thought if he thinks he can win this without them. Or maybe he's not in it to win it. Same goes for his party if they don't wanna back him. I get that they don't wanna be accused of being a racist lot, but it's kinda too late for that given the sway the liberal has had over America. As for Ron Paul, he might be the better of the lot, but I'm assuming he's docile like Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, and the others who got buried this election season. I've noticed that too as idiots like Trump, Bush Jr., and Hillary are allowed to run the joint, while the more sensible thinking republicans and democrats just sit back and watch them drive this country into the ground. Like What The Hell? What kind of country am I living i--- Oh yeah.. Nevermind...

@Hanyouyomi This shows a lot about the general public. If most people are wise, they will not even let them get into the race to become the leader of a great country. We can see that Trump is playing to the emotions of the people, and he is very successful about it. He does not have to talk sense, because he is not talking to sensible persons.

@scheng1 Both Trump and Hillary are playing to the emotions of the people hence why they got this far. They don't need to talk sense, not when all people care about is being emotionally satisfied. That's how this country is structured. You say "pretty $h!t" in a convincing manner and people will believe you.

I don't believe he really wants to be President. I think he's surprised he even made it this far. It's all about publicity for Trump

@fizzytom I'm not sure, he won the jingoists over with his talk of building a wall and his vague ideas of how to improve the economy... Even if he loses and comes out and says it was all a "publicity stunt." I ain't gonna believe him.

You might be right about Trump not being in it to win it. It's all so odd. What is happening is that the Dems are baiting him and he's taking the bait and making things worse by the day.

I don't think he needs to be "baited" at all, he's just crazy and has no self-control. Can you imagine him in control of our nuclear codes? This is one time I have to say GOD HELP US!!
