This is not a Democrat thing, it's an anyone with an education thing. It's why even senior Republicans are distancing themselves
"Trump will ruin the country" is *mostly* a Democratic thing as an article of actual belief. Among Republicans, I'd argue it's more like "Trump will destroy party" and a dislike for his influence on political standing, not necessarily a wholesale disagreement with policy with the exception of where policy overlaps with Republican economic policies, which are mostly rubber stamps of corporate interests.
and pretty much anyone outside the US that is aware of international diplomacy is fearful of the consequences he could bring. As you say you have Congress to protect your domestic policy, but a couple of stupid comments can ignite tensions globally that can start wars.
During the Cold War, when the US faced a military opponent of near parity and the chance of a nuclear war of near extinction, anti-communist and anti-Soviet rhetoric was extremely heated. The majority of US politicians vented relentlessly against communism and the Soviets without a war starting. And none of this takes into account the reality that we fight wars all the time anyway, without any attached rhetoric.
This is not a Democrat thing, it's an anyone with an education thing. [...]This not just FUD, there is a real risk that everyone can see except a minority percentage of redneck Americans.
This is my other problem with this meme, it's usually stated in the most derogatory of terms. People that don't believe in the most hyperbolic and extreme outcomes of a Trump presidency are uneducated rednecks.
I'm willing to go along with the idea that Trump would make a *bad* President -- clumsy diplomacy, domestic political gridlock, divisive leadership. But the rest of the doom and gloom prophesy seems vastly overblown and tied to a sales technique designed to make anyone who doesn't accept it feel as if they're somehow stupid or uneducated.
