Why does wanting people to do things legally make him a bad guy?  

Part of it is his proposed methods are seen as ineffective, costly and don't deal with the big issue of extreme backlog of immigration courts and partly due to that backlog, legal American are able to be swept in the tide and be deported also.

Personally I would rather see the wall money go to improving the immigration courts so American don't get deported and people don't have to wait years for an outcome.

I also think it's also noteworthy that Trump's wife is an immigrant, and he has said that he supports immigration as long as it is legal. Why does wanting people to do things legally make him a bad guy?  

Melania Trump herself emigrated to the USA illegally! Clearly her husband's problem is not with the illegality so much as the origin of the people involved. 

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

That's not even true. She came on a visa and later got citizenship. She didn't come here illegally.

I don't understand. How could we deport a citizen from their own country?

Gee, I never realised just how political the situation is in America, and how everyone seems to have a slightly different opinion to each other.

There is nothing wrong with true communism. What we have seen in communist countries so far is actually totalitarianism, which is the direction we are moving in with Trump. 

He will be making the rich richer, the poor and middle class poorer, taking away our access to health care and social security, and who knows what else? I read this week that his administration wants to take away the citizenship of flag burners and "terrorist sympathizers" such as Black Lives Matter. They want to throw a million Americans in the prison at Guantanamo Bay.

In Texas, there is a new law punishing women by making them pay for funerals if they have an abortion or accidentally have a miscarriage.

How is it going to be fascist?  The people voted for 100% republican in Washington.  It was decided by the votes.  That's how Democracy works.  Y'all need to chill.  The election is over and there's no sense in crying over something you can't change.  On top of that, unlike fascist countries, we get the chance that change our leadership every few years.  Maybe next time you'll get what you wanted, but this time it is how it is.

Communism, when it's done well, and properly, is good. When totalitarianism is included, which has always been done in history, it doesn't work. Which is what is scaring me about Donald Trump so much.

Communism would be a great thing, but the problem is that there are too many greedy people and too many lazy people, which is why it can never work. 

Americans and people living in this country who burn our flag, and terrorist sympathizers (though I don't believe most BLM supporters fall into that category) are scum and I think we should have a mandatory three generation re-education for these people. 

I also don't understand what is wrong with that Texan law or how you can call it a "punishment". A fetus is a living being, so why shouldn't they deserve to have their body discarded respectfully? I doubt you would consider it a punishment for parents to have to pay to respectfully cremate or bury (the law does not necessarily make them pay for a funeral) your baby who lived outside of utero, so what is the difference? In both cases they are human beings who lived and who deserve to be taken care of respectfully.

You only think a fetus is a person because you were told that by someone who is against abortion. 

I have no problem with Republicans winning and I am not "crying" because my candidate didn't win.

Our concern is that Trump seems to have no understanding of how our country works and is set to violate our constitutional rights.

Flag burning is protected by law as free speech. You can't take away the citizenship of flag burners. Forcing a woman to have a funeral for a fetus (even if it is so small as to be invisible) is ridiculous and goes against the beliefs of those who have abortions. 

He also wants to do away with freedom of the press and punish journalists who report the truth.

Trump's homeland security person has said that Black Lives Matter is connected to ISIS which is an outright lie. Trump keeps telling outright lies as well. His campaign was built on them. Look at the fact checkers.

You can't just throw Americans in prison without the right to a lawyer because you disagree with then politically. It's scary that people have no clue what they are taking about or what is happening.

While I agree that the fascism is going to far, the president was decided by the college, not the people, Congress was the people though.

Communism is ineffective and true communism is impossible on a country wide scale.

Flag burning is in fact the proper way of destroying an American flag that is damaged.

How would the government enforce the miscarriage funeral law for when it happens before the lady is aware that she was pregnant in the first place?

They have the same law in Indiana. You can see how they apply it there. 

They are trying to strip away the rights of women to do what they want with their own bodies. It is because of Obama's protection of Planned Parenthood.

No. I know that a human fetus is a person because they are living human beings. The only reason you don't believe that a human fetus is a person is because you are trying to justify the slaughter of a defenseless baby. You don't have to dehumanize them to justify their death. They are living human beings whether you want to admit it to yourself or not.
