In 3 or 4 populated States.

Trump won more states, and regional areas from people who are suffering and feel disconnected.

That is what democracy is about. These people have their say, and the system levels the playing field so these people are NOT ignored. People in New York and LA live in their own little bubble.

Over the weekend, Donald Trump spoke at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) where he made a number of statements about a whole host of topics, including unemployment, the Russian investigation, and crowd size.

A number of the statements he made however, when fact-checked, turned out to be false.

Here are a few of them:

1. He claimed America was "down to 3.7 per cent unemployment".
Wrong. The unemployment rate is actually at 4 per cent – it was 3.7 per cent in September 2018.

2. Speaking about the diversity visa lottery program, he said: "They send us the people they don’t want."
This is wrong. Countries don’t actually select citizens to apply for the US program – individuals apply for it.

Secondly, “don’t want” implies that only undesirable people apply for the visa. In fact, they have to meet very specific education and/or skills requirements in order to qualify.

3. Speaking on the Russia investigation, he said Robert Mueller’s team has "13 of the angriest Democrats in the history of our country".
Untrue. Mueller is a Republican, and the team has both Republicans and Democrats.

4. On James Comey: "Every single Democrat said Comey should fired" for the way he handled the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. And, Trump added that Chuck Schumer "called for his resignation many times".
Incorrect. Firstly, Democrats didn’t universally call for Comey to be fired – though a few wanted him fired, it was by no means a majority.

Secondly, Schumer told Bloomberg News he wanted to speak with Comey “to restore my faith” as he had lost confidence in the investigation. He did not however, call on Comey to be fired.

5. Crowd size. Trump doubles down on his accusation that the media falsely reports about crowd size. He said: "They did the same thing at our big inauguration speech. You take a look at those crowds. We had a crowd, I’ve never seen anything like it. There were people (from) the Capitol down to the Washington Monument."
Wrong. The National Park Service released lots of photos showing that the crowd that showed for his inauguration ceremony didn’t extend to the Washington Monument from the Capitol.

They showed that there were empty spaces on the National Mall.

6. On the shut-down, he claimed that though he travelled to Iraq, he "stayed at the White House for months and months because I wanted the Democrats to get back from their vacations from Hawaii and these other places".
That’s misleading. He actually left the White House lots of times outside of travelling to Iraq.

In fact, he travelled to Philadelphia to watch the Army-Navy football game, Kansas City for a conference, the G-20 summit, hosts MAGA rallies in Mississippi and hosted Thanksgiving dinner at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

These are not lies, just politics. And nothing pathological about it.

Politicians generally tell lies. But Trump is probably still the most honest individual to ever assume the office of POTUS. His supporter base do not care about any of the above, only that he keeps his promises which he is well and truly trying to do.

I mean you have to be really scraping the bottom of the barrel when you think an unemployment rate of 4% is a lie. That is unprecedented low levels in unemployment.

But I guess its easy to throw away one liners calling him a pathological liar when not even one of the examples is a lie.

There's no democracy in the US, koala. Not just because of this stupid electoral system, but also because only 2 parties are represented in the US Congress.

This system resembles the old Soviet 1-party system or the current Chinese system.

Whatever makes you feel good.

But let me tell you this. There is far more democracy in the USA than there is in Cyprus or any EU country.

The USA is the land of the free whether you believe it or not. You are even free to bear arms and that right is enshrined in the second amendment of the USA Constitution which brings me to The Bill of Rights where all your human rights are enshrined and enforceable under US Federal Law. This document is so sacred to the citizens, it is near impossible to amend. Requires are majority in 75% of States. The Americans will NEVER allow any Government to play with it, without the approval of people, hence why it is almost impossible to remove the Right to bear Arms. No Government can just remove it because if they could they could remove all the other rights.

If the USA isn't a democracy, then there is no such thing is democracy globally, because this is the most free country on the planet.

And no, the USA has never resembled the old Soviet System and never was even close. If they did, then Cyprus resembles North Korea. Because you are not as free as a US Citizen is. Not even close. Not when they can pack a Magnum pistol.

The Americans fought a civil war over these rights. They have a psyche over their liberty which is unprecedented anywhere else. Even voting is not obligatory. Which I agree with btw.

The land of the free my ass. The land of anarchy more likely.
And the reason they have guns at home is precisely because of that, because there's so much anarchy their life is at risk even at home.
Householders get surprised learning Cypriot college students renting something don't have a gun, and they lend them one for free...

I only spent about 20 days there in total (traveled for work 3-4 times) and I felt my life was at risk at least twice, once when I got lost in a ghetto and another when someone was trying for about 10 minutes to hit my car from behind when driving in a desert road at about 100Kmh.
I got shit scared kept increasing speed until I managed to pull over....

When are you going to get that job in the US? I can hardly wait for the day you will get the shock of your life :mrgreen:
