It's gonna take a Long time to get this done unless we get a Teddy Roosevelt type of personality.

Imagine a president with Obama’s brains and Trump’s balls or Pelosi’s ovaries. Trump could have been a transformational president. Imagine Trump as a progressive. Without a cent of political ideology to back him up, conservatives were fortunate to have such an ignorant, misinformed, dumb-ass for a candidate. I can’t believe I just wrote that sentence. if Trump ran as a Democrat and won, oh boy, what we could have gotten done. We could have wiped out the conservatives for good and transformed our political, social and legal institutions to make a truly great nation. We are already starting to see Trump suck up to Dems. When he sees the favorable press he gets he will suck up even more to Dems. What does he care about the country? The words Trump and Patriot are not synonymous. He is out for himself and oh how Dems could have used that if he was our ignorant, misinformed, dumb-ass candidate.

I was 18 in 1980 and voted for Reagan. I loved his small govt less regulation agenda. I loved his t

tough talk against the Soviet Union. But like I said, I was an 18 year old male going to an elite catholic High School and really ignorant regarding politics. I see my 18 year old self in many young Trump supporters, my 22 year old son included. Ask a Trump supporter why they like him and they will say “he speaks his mind” or “ he does what he says”. Like I was, they have no idea about policy. It truly is a cult of personality. But at least Reagan had a fully formed ideology, Trump is as ignorant as his supporters regarding public policy. As I matured and learned more about politics and opened my mind, I moved more towards the middle voting for Bush after Reagan and them all Dems after that. I saw how Republicans were really only about helping the elite. Trump’s ultimate legacy maybe his incredible ignorance has woken the silent majority of decent Americans and invigorating public debate and knowledge of what the different parties stand for. Trump maybe the last of the RW nutjob party to win the presidency for generations. At least that is my sincere hope. That Trump is a transformational President that ends the Republican myth as small govt, fiscal conservatives. At the very least, the party of ”Family Values” and the ”Moral Majority” is dead. A new period of Progressives will fundamentally change our society once again cleaning up the mess left by the republican party.

Rally season is over, lost the House, indictments loom, his firing of Sessions

is a disaster, there is nothing to look forward to, just doom and gloom. Donnie boy had a fun 2 years destroying our country, trashing our institutions, and lying and lying, well the bill has come due Donnie Boy you are out of cash. Oh yea, I forgot, the emoluments case is moving forward and Dems are gonna get your taxes. Oh what fun it will be to see Mueller pick off your conspiring traitorous family. Revenge is sweet. Maybe Putin will grant him asylum.
