    Well, $19.947 Trillion is just 93.86% of $21.252 Trillion, so it is more than 6% less. I myself would not call that a 'FEW' percent. A few percent would be within 3% or 4%, in my usage of that word.

    And, anyway, there are all the additional factors that Panzareta and BoiseBo urged you to consider here, as well----which you typically do not consider. Shrug.
    You might wanta ask him.

    I speak for me only.

    It's a little like "Hillary won by 3 million votes".

    Boy howdy, it took about a year to kill THAT lie.

    And some people STILL tell it.

    Fascist is probably a more accurate term:

    Here is a list of the Early Warning Signs of Fascism, from a poster that used to be sold in the National Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.:

    (1) Powerful and continuing nationalism

    (2) Disdain for human rights

    (3) Identification of enemies as a unifying cause

    (4) Supremacy of the military

    (5) Rampant sexism

    (6) Controlled mass media

    (7) Obsession with national security

    (8) Religion and government intertwined

    (9) Corporate power protected

    (10) Labor power suppressed

    (11) Disdain for intellectuals & the arts

    (12) Obsession with crime & punishment

    (13) Rampant cronyism & corruption

    (14) Fraudulent elections


    Your Mr. Trump seems to fit most of these to a 'T'.
    Thanks from Ian Jeffrey, Panzareta and Dragonfly5

    That's from our old history perfesser.

    Don't forget that Obamas deficits were rising, yes RISING again in his last year in office.
    Yeah. Have you forgotten that most of the Republicans were INSISTING on big increases in the defense budget? They were claiming that Obama had been STARVING the Defense Department of needed funds for YEARS and YEARS.

    Just ask John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

    How close is Fascism to Nazism? Weren't Benito and Adolf best pals? Look, I think Donald Trump is a much closer match to Mussolini than to Hitler. But I DO find that poster to be amusing and GENERALLY accurate. As I said, 'Fascist' would have been a better fit than 'Nazi', but would have detracted from the resemblance the poster was drawing to the famous word in the Mary Poppins movie. Shrug.

    Third attempt.

    Do you think Trump is a Nazi?

    That's a yes or no question.

    And, remember, you called the sign "Accurate".

    Yes?

    Or no?

    Or will you continue to dance?
