Are you going to hold Trump to the fire to try to pass congressional term limits which was one of his promises and one of our countries biggest issue that effects all other issues?.

Absolutely! I was more of a #NeverHer. But through the end I have become more of a Trump supporter. He was the best option we had.

It is now up to Trump on if I will continue to stand behind him. He will either work for the people or he will fail.

- ACA is #1 to me. Repeal and replace!
- I also want to see if he sticks with giving States more control, this is how it should be.
- I honestly don't know what he can do to bring this country together but I feel that he has been trying.

If people make noise about the edge issues he might jump on it.

The only thing I currently hope for out of a Trump admin is marijuana reform. I've given up hope on all other positions in this country.


Eventhough I don't smoke I'm for legalising it. I also find the Right very hypocritical on this issue since they are against big gov;t and all that.

The drug war is something that has done more harm than good from what it appears and I do hope he does something to un do it.

To our lefty friends cruising by what will make a trump presidency a failure for you, and if he doesn't do those things will you acknowledged his presidency was not a complete failure?



If nukes get used on either side in a conflict, that would definitely be the biggest failure for me.


I hope he keeps up his promise to help the economy.

I also hope we can send people beyond low Earth orbit in the near future.

Right there with you. I was on the #NeverHer . but felt there was a .001% chance for change for the better with him versus 0% with her.

Although in the end I still couldn't stomach voting for him and not get past seeing him as a conman, I still have that .001% chance that he will prove me wrong.

That is another issue that I think should neither be legal or illegal .Why make laws about peoples personal decisions , At the end of the day we need to be held accountable for any of our actions that cause harm to others and I don't mean Corporate profits .

Here's the thing. The drug war itself isn't going to go away. In fact, I'm reasonably sure that Trump and Jeff Sessions will be expanding its scope thanks to all his "tough on crime" rhetoric. Plus the opiate epidemic that has been blowing up in rural white America's backdoor for the last so many years is probably going to spur an opiate crackdown.

So this is why I've backed off of War on Drugs reform and am just putting my eggs in the marijuana reform basket. While I still believe that the war on drugs is the 100% wrong way to handle drugs, I'm not confident my opinion on it will matter.

Agreed. I also suspect the Same on Trump on the war on drugs and hopefully both of us will be proven wrong.

Agreed, Treat the people like adults and maybe the people will act like adults.

This is why I'm more of a libertarian and think gov't needs to be shrunk to a more manageable level and less totalitarian practices over individual decisions that don't harm others.

Trump made a comment that leaves no room for error or ambiguity. Health care for everyone.
If he can pull that off, he will amaze most, even some of the haters. If not, he will have everyone (including those who supported him) on his ass. Time will tell.

The thing is, the only real way to provide healthcare to all is a single payer system. The Right has made it clear over the years that they think a single payer system is worse than Hitler. How exactly do you see him providing healthcare to all?

That is certainly the big issue.
While I certainly understand the Left skepticism of trump doing anything for the good of the people, I hope they don't go to the point they are willing to sabotage it to prove their point.

I hope the Left can set an example and end the cycle where each party is more concern with being proven right than bettering the country.

I'm just going on the information we have. Congress has already demonstrated they just want a complete repeal. To hell with a replacement! The plan that Trump has proposed is only beneficial to those with money.

Any plan that can give healthcare to everyone will take years to devise. So far, both Congress and Trump seem to be flying by the seat of their pants. Despite having six years to come up with any kind of feasible replacement plan.

Thats the part that the left is not seeing or refuse to see IMO.

The right is not Trump . Trump got elected by the right because the individual republicans (Not the party) were tired of those GOP selected drone candidates like the Bush, Cruz, Rubio, and such.

I'm willing to give him a chance to see if he is not like the rest of them.

So it doesn't matter to you that they are going to replace it? You are going to damn him before he even gets a chance...got ya.

Sessions surprised me when he said that if states want to make medical M legal then maybe they need to relook at the federal laws.

I really feel that this should be placed in the states hands and the federal government should have nothing to do with it.

The vast majority of Republicans in Congress are the same ones that said they would in no way vote for a single payer system. Thus the ACA. So odds are they will not vote for a single payer system. And if they do that makes them hypocrites. It also kind of make all the crying about Obama being a socialist worthless.

It really did not matter WHO won the election. It all comes down to the next four years and what the newly elected president does for the nation and its people.

In this time in which we live, we face a host of problems and whoever won, would be hogtied with them... and bound to at least TRY to fix them.

It is my hope and my prayer, every single night, that this nation of WE THE PEOPLE, are reborn and survive into this, the 21st century.

They've been saying they'RE going to replace it for six years. So far the only plan that has been floated to the public (Trump's) is idiotic. Let's not forget that when Congress just recently voted on funding for the ACA they chose not to fund the preexisting condition clause. How does that help in providing healthcare to everyone?
