Will america reelect a wanna be dictator

So i ask you...did Trump show his true colors... If it looks like a duck, swims like a duck, and quacks like a duck, then it probably is a duck. https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/6/15/17467644/trump-kim-summit-fox-news https://youtu.be/oHWyPqP6dkE will america reelect a wannabe dictator.....

This is the first time that the likes of russia actually could derail internal american politics on a scale that rivals what politicians can do with political party funding . What do you think Russia derailed exactly? Firstly, HRC won the popular vote, second, the Democrats made a huge blunder in t...

Buddhism is for people that have defiled minds. If you're enlightened you don't need it anymore. That's in the texts.
And yet buddhism is for others as well...
