I said he will call out those who are corrupt and heads will roll.


The President cannot order people sent to the guillotine, either. I know you are talking metaphorically, but you need to disabuse yourself of the fantasy that Trump shares your desire to sweep out all corruption. As a billionaire real estate developer, casino operator, and television celebrity, his livelihood has always depended on corruption favoring him. I have no doubt he keeps an enemies list, and he will do everything in his executive power to punish those whom he feels have wronged him, but it will have nothing to do with whether or not they are corrupt.

I voted for Obama,the first go round. He deserves every bit of ridiculehe has received. He was the ultimate bait and switch president (on nearly every issue), and the longest running war president in US history. A liar, the great divider. Ya, he deserves it.

Bait and switch:
Socialized healthcare switched for Obamacare (corporatized-faacist system)
Closing Gitmo- continued. Moved elsewhere doing the same thing.
Promised to unite - divided like bever before
Socially pragmatic - pushes sjw agenda
Hold banks accountable - biggest bailout / money giveaway in history
No troops in syria- troops in syria
Promised infrastructure rebuilding in stimulus - stimulus mostly welfare
Said would promote renewable energies - instead promotes carbon tax
Said he wouldnt go afterr guns - has gone after the 2nd ame,dment as much as he could
Preached government transparency - has been the most non-transparent president in,history.

I could go on but im getting tired of typing.


How was he supposed to unite the country when the second he was elected the GOP declared the was literally a Muslim, socialist, anti Christ who was purposefully trying to destroy the country...

You could find a clip of nearly every republican ELECTED OFFICIAL (not random poster) saying exactly that...

That said I agree with a lot of your list..

I would add the Bergdahl trade and the troop withdrawal to your list....sure Obama inherited a horrible, unjust war. But obviously from where he became president, the troop withdrawal blew up in his face.


The GITMO stuff was all blocked by republicans tho..so not at his feet.

The stimulus went mainly to corporate welfare, not social welfare..which I consider a mark against Obama for sure..

The gun thing is just nonsensical..no elected official is tying or has tried to ban guns..it is a BS right wing scare tactic.. Banning guns would be political suicide for any politician.

A gun ban would require house to house fighting, and neither the army or law enforcement would provide the warm bodies to enforce it.

Banning assault rifles is not an attack on the second amendment, anymore than banning grenades or C4.

End up doing nothing?!?!

War on terrorism

War on drugs

Voter ID

Gerrymandering( doubt they were first, but were last lol)

Shutting down abortion clinics

Cutting welfare, social security, Medicare

Private prisons

Right to work states

Bathroom law

Creationism in schools , they are still pushing.

I'm sure I'm missing some lol..


You listed a mishmash of state to state laws and federal bipartisan crap.
State to state is...well, state to state, unless you elect a dictator that eliminates all states rights, then they are gonna do what they are gonna do. best to find a state that works with your ideals.
Now, in regards to end up doing nothing, well, Abortion is still legal, welfare and other programs are still active, creationism isn't in school. Again, lots of noise, no actual progress.
I worry far more for SCOTUS decisions than presidental aims. citizens united is a real thing to worry about, building a wall and moaning about islam isnt.


Citizen United is prob the worst decision in modern American history, but is a republican agenda..

Everything I listed was started and/or is still championed by the right, long after the left has been attempting to fix them.

Abortion rights have been constantly attacked, using the "dr admitting privileges" to close the vast majority of clinics in red states and adding taxes to make it unaffordable...hell one state just out lawed it (except life of the mother) last week!! The Supreme Court will throw it out, but still.

Creationism isn't in school because the left helped stop it, not because the right didn't want it...

Everything I listed might as well be in the GOP platform lol..

However, did you know there are some states that allow 3rd trimester abortions without any necessity? Some laws do need to change, because once there is a central nervous system attached to a brain, that is a lifeform experiencing things..its a person then, and that is a scientific view of the debate. That needs to change. 100%.

Is that a right wing view? I am generally opposed to killing off a thinking, self sufficient child. I think thats not any wing, thats principled ethics.

You should stop for a moment and consider some stances of the right. Most are dumb, but they do make some legit points in some areas that needs to be discussed with rational minds. The problem is, the rational minds get drowned out by the irrational loudmouths.

As far as the rest, well, again, it shows a ineffective bunch of complainers..they can push for evolution in class all they want, and it aint never gonna happen. they can wish for the us to adopt christianity as its federal religion, and they can keep wishing..wont happen.
their social views are antiquated and silly.
I find them irrelevant
I am more concerned with the grassroots movement by the progressive fringe left that is demanding government create new vast censorship laws in the name of anti-sexism, anti-racism, etc. That to me is the citizens united moment for the left..tbh, that is more worrying than CU, as that directly effects me and my liberties...and being a liberal, liberties to me is kinda a big thing.

That's true, Trump is change (for better or worse) Hillary is status quo (no change) You pick.


Do you really believe change is always for the better? Were Russians better off under the Bolshevicks?
of course not but we won't be under Bolshevik Bernie so I guess I'll take a reformed democrat over a communist and a crook. After all Reagan was a reformed democrat and he's my favorite potus since g Washington

Actually quite a bit of stimulus went into the Hitech act for upgrading computer information systems so they can track everybody in the socialized medicine. en.m.wikipedia.org...

so far they way he has dealt with people questioning his positions has been very concerning

once he actually gets in office, it will only get worse of course

he uses child like insults, twitter wars, threats and simply telling us we don't deserve to know

I wouldn't hire the guy to cut my grass

I don't think the third trimester stuff is true..late term abortions have been illegal for years and has almost no supporters..

I wish the right was a legit option instead of a freak show circus..only one real option is dangerous..

However I can't think of any legit point only the right pushes...

Literally every single issue goes back to:

A) I shouldn't have to pay for that..

B) the bible told me to..

Hell, they even openly admit they would rather have their leaders be principled rather than do the most effective thing for the situation. They want you to do the principles thing...their own personal principle most of the country disagrees with.

All of his executive orders have been validated by the conservative majority Supreme Court..

I'm not saying if the GOP played ball that the country would be a Eutopia..just that we have no idea pass or fail either way because his every move was blocked.

How could they agree with any policy Obama put forth.. They had been telling their base Obama was a Muslim, socialist, anti Christ who was actively trying to destroy the country....

How do you go back out there 5 min later and agree with ANY policy he has after that??

Any deal is literally a deal with the devil!

The GOP painted themselves into a corner and paved the way for a Trump to come in and use their own propaganda against them..

Republicans no longer know who to trust..they bought the Fox News lie of "everyone is in a conspiracy against you and we are the only ones telling you the truth".

Then when they catch fox types lying, they never do the math and realize it was JUST. Fox lying. So they end up trusting no one..

Look at Trump, every conservative source from fox to limbagh to the establishment, every single source conservatives are supposed to trust..begged the base not to pick trump..and they did anyway.

Not reasonable

Paying for roads, good. military, okayish. food for the poor..I am in favor of simply because it is a major economic stimulus. Healthcare, I am in favor of. University. no, but I can be convinced for trade school courses. (solid trade experience is more employable and often makes more money than university degree folks anyhow). Discussions on what is governments job and what is private citizens job is a good discussion, and I am all for any talk to make things smarter and reduce the deficit, but I dont see that as a option with giving everything away for free unless we basically eat the rich

Yes to provide a diffent set of policy positions, providing us with a different option and competition the help avoid corruption..

None of that equals :

Make up random scandals and lie in an attempt to demonize your opponent over things that have nothing to do with policy positions...


As well as all the propaganda thru constantly spout...

I've been sitting back on my heels for a while. I have made point of correcting people when they use media-driven falsehoods about what Trump has said. I've also been quick to laugh at those who said "nominate Trump and Hillary wins".

I do not fall into the demographic that you like to tout as Trump supporter. I have a college education. I am not a blue-collar worker. I do have my finger on the pulse of American politics. For months now we have listened to the absurd idea that if Trump were to be nominated that he we be destroyed in the general election by Clinton. I've laughed at the idea.

I was one of a small number laughing at this idea. The Democratic Party was laughing too... but those who were laughing are starting to scowl as they realize the chickens have come home to roost. In 2016, it seems, the dirty tricks and the dodged crimes are going to haunt the presumptive nominee.

I do not, and have not, agreed with every position Trump has offered. Even so, no matter what I disagree with, I can't wait for him to smash open the whole disgusting system. I can't wait to watch it burn. The only question now is do we rise like a phoenix from the ashes or do we burn out like a coal?

Make America great again. Doesn't sound bad to me. Stop funding wars, stop out-sourcing jobs, stop being the world police.



Yea 5 years ago trump was a moderate democrat, so I'm guessing his conservative act is total BS. It's just playing to win and eliminating the competition.

I think trump keeps his plan for a wall, then goes hard core left of Hillary for everything else.

I think trump trades it all, for his wall. Exactly like a Roman emperor of old, the wall will be trumps monument to out last the ages..and I think he gives the left EVERYTHING to get it.


the funny part is he doesn't need to give them anything. They've already got the legislation through to build it, all it needs is congress to provide the funding and the president to sign off on the budget. If trump wins and republicans keep the house and senat, the dems may get nothing for the wall.

Hannity stayed neutral.. But never liked on trump and did do pro trump coverage.

Limbagh was pro Cruz, but just didn't nuke option Trump like beck and levin.

No one said vote for him...

The last time I heard people demand soo much they dont care about what the world thinks, the US started bombing Iraq.
This crap needs to stop. we are a nation with the most powerful military on the planet. we need calm heads at the helm, and the people who demand they dont give a crap about what the world thinks, especially when we have a nuclear arsenal at our disposal, and a habit of attacking anyone who annoys us needs to get a bit of perspective.


You want the USA run by outside consensus?

You seem to be wanting to promote the NWO type thing.

Who is wanting WW3?

Other countries will have to cooperate or not, simple.

First thing an organism needs to get healthy, is to get rid of it's parasites, domestic and foreign.

Trump will weed them out as best he can.

As for the nukes, it would be prudent to keep them around for a while.

you said this in a different thread
When Jesus comes back, there will be nothing to write down. lol!!
You believe in apocalypse, god coming to judge, etc etc.
This is a view of people who are..."touched". there is no reason to continue the discussion as the train of rational thought left the station quite a long time ago.

I have no love for Clinton, but she will at least be a reasonable figurehead. Trump..well, I am certain he will have many more seasons in reality television. maybe he and palin can start up some shows together about how awesome they are. they are always good for a laugh.
