    Serious question to the Trump supporters on here.

    This is not about liklihood of it happening.

    Take it as a purely hypothetical.

    Imagine that the Mueller report comes back, and it is damning to the point that Congress feels they must act to impeach Trump.

    What would you do? How would you feel? Would you find another politician to support? If so, who? Would it be the same?

    Nothing. It was never about Trump. There has been a large disenfranchised group of voters who want the neoliberal/Bible belt alliance out of the Republican party and a shift back to nationalism/normalcy. It didn't disappear when Pat Buchanan or Ron Paul lost, and they were better men than Trump.

    The postmodern right will continue on with or without Trump. It's too hard to say whether it will keep control of the republican party, but it's definitely going to caucus with them. We just have to hope the irrationality on the left doesn't keep spreading along with it, because then we'll be stuck with the worst of both worlds, one where liberalism has no voice.

    It sorta depends on why they impeach trump.

    I don't think it will happen though.

    This is interesting, but it is a historic revisionism, isn't it? When did the Republican Party ever consist of a broad, non-religious populist constituency? Maybe briefly under Reagan, but then Reagan turned around and ushered in the era of Globalist economic policy/ neoliberalism (which was seamlessly continued by Clinton, of course).

    Also, back to the question. If Trump were impeached this fall, what would you personally do? What would be your next political step, so to speak?

    Edit: It's very interesting to see the people in thus thread who have no coherent answer except to attack me for asking the question. It makes me think a lot of Trump voters would disappear under rocks for another 30 years if he was impeached. Which is probably why the Republican establishment is hesitant to do it.
    Hey, remember the time there was the thread about the worst WR poster and you were in second place overall until someone bitched about it to the mods? Yeah. I remember that too. Good times.
    Oh, I hear you. Mike Pence would be worse in a lot of ways. Part of me wouldn't mind Trump nearly so much if he didn't have to align himself with these religious nutters to get elected. But he dig. Bigly.

    They won't panic knowing Scott Baio is waiting in the wings.

    This. Threads like this are fucking stupid. He's not getting impeached, get the fuck over it.

    Not liking him is not grounds for impeachment.

    If Trump gets impeached then America is pretty much done for. The 30% or so of patriotic Americans that pushed Trump into office will have no recourse. They won't back the establishment republicans that have shown their snake scales and will most likely check out of the political process. That leaves the government wide open for the swamp, backed by insane leftists, to reassert and consolidate their control. Once that happens we the people will never get it back.

    Then comes the open borders, gun control, internet control, high taxes, high regulation, carbon taxes, 850 genders, endless war, identity politics, a shit economy, an accelerated demonization of traditional American values & culture, and so much more. Good times.

    He won't be. But if we're playing along,


    Civil War. Too many people know about the corruption on the left and will know the only ones left to administer justice will be smith and wesson.

    Trump doesn't have a real base so it's kind of hard to make an honest assessment of his supporters.
    What you'd call Trumpism is probably just (right-wing) populism, which obviously won't die with Trump.
    I think the group of people who are truly enthusiastic supporters of Trump is waaaay smaller than left-leaning posters on Sherdog believe, something they should actually appreciate but probably won't because Trumpism also makes it a bit easier to take shots at the right (the right has gone insane, just look at Trumpets etc)
    It's also important to realize that neither Trumpism, nor the new right, let alone the core of the alt-right has any significant political power at the moment.
    The vast majority of Trump's advisors and administration members have nothing to do with those 'movements', the GOP is still the GOP that's stuck somewhere between cooperate and donor interests, neocons who're basically warmongering Democrats, politicians who want to stay in power and are scared of the unpopularity of their own agenda and of course political incompetence. It's not like some new right-wing movement has taken over the United States of America.

    Nothing would change. Gullible fools will always look to be herded into one pen or another. Same goes for Hilary cultists, Bernie Bros and the Ayn Randers.

    The clowns will pretend they never really supported him. They're already laying the groundwork.

    "It was never really about Trump..." as you defend every dumb thing he does and follow his twitter like fangirls.
