Currently it's averaging about $61 per donation. Hope they raise a lot of money, a substantial part of the wall is also built and when the illegal problem is still there, we can revel in schadenfreude at the expense of these morons. :D
Same though whatever they raise will have to be doubled due to 40% tax and 10% commission from gofundme, so I'm reality they'll have to raise 10B just to get the 5

the wall gofundme :hahaha:https://www.gofundme.com/TheTrumpWall

“If the 63 million people who voted for Trump each pledge $80, we can build the wall.” That equates to roughly 5Billion Dollars, even if we get half, that's half the wall. We can do this."

:mrx: math checks out
Rand Paul's idea is probably the most logical.

Take troops outta Afghanistan, save 50 billion per year and use those savings to fund the wall...

I know the Warhawks will be against it but...

Maybe pay those same troops and military contractors the 50billion to build wall. Fuck it, use 90% of military budget to build 100 walls or roads or anything :up:

You mean actually give the money to the actual people?

But that would be non corporate capitalism. We can't do that until corporatocracy cannibalizes (which looking at the current state of things we aren't too far off when u have Google and Apple basically forming a duopoly in the online space. Only a matter of time before one tries to take out the other)...

Yes, the guy talks real stupid at times but love the fact Trump keeps attempting to incorporating ideas into reality on improving the US! Not like those shrewd politicians (both Dem and Rep) who discuss change forever in DC milking money of the taxpayers!

Here's a real waste of time and taxpayer money .....

Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California called Thursday for the Senate Judiciary Committee to hold a hearing after two children died in the custody of Customs and Border Protection.
Feinstein, the top Democrat on the committee, made her request in a letter to GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who is set to chair the committee in the new year.


OMG! It's her again! :ohmy:

Or the fact that moderate left types are now considered centrists thanks to the far left identitarian types having hijacked the democrat party.

Normies largely dont care about modeling through the colour of a persons skin or what gender they are, they care about JOBS and job security for them and their families...

I dont like trump as a person but also see that what he's trying to do for normies is something no other politician has done in decades aka its important not to be a TDS type...

So it would appear that the left has been spreading out further and further left over the past decades whereas the right is centering around a more common set of values.

I just don't agree that the far left is the identitarian types. The ones who hijacked the Dem party are in fact the so called centrist corporate bourgeois types. They are anything but radicals, and have shown themselves to be warhawks, establishment ass lickers hiding behind pc speech and propaganda. aka Clinton/Obama etc. What I'm seeing is the more sensible conservatives and the traditional anti-war leftish people realizing that they have more in common.
