Every four or eight years 50% of the country gets a President they didn't want.
Relda and Annee we "get" your unhappiness, but most people move on and try to find something good.
Give it a try.
Understand I am a realist.
I might want to live in a Bernie world, but I'm not delusional that anything like that's gonna happen in my lifetime.
I see Trump for exactly who he is. I have a brother that's very much like him. My brother and I are like water and oil. I've always been my own person. I was never "under my brother's spell" like so many were. It frustrated the hell out of him.
My three main issues:
1. Equal Rights/Equal Treatment.
2. Separation of church and state.
3. Advancement in Science.
I don't see me accepting Trump any time soon.
Trump's standards are not my standards.
Trump is not used to playing by the rules.
Let's see how far he gets.

Six days in. A tad bit early to declare "new standards", isn't it?
While he's done some things I like, it's still early days yet.
I think the greater point is we've never seen a politician do half this much over the course of years, and Trump isn't even a week into the job.
He's blowing a wide, gaping hole into the establishment rhetoric that things can't be done and by extent, is blowing open the corruption in DC.

It's too early to tell much about Trump. But one thing I know for certain about him, everyone I despise hates him. And that's a good start IMO. He, at least, isn't one of the good ole' boys of either political parties who's been raping America for the last 50 years, and not a MSM darling either(who's been promoting the political rapists for the last 50 years).

If you want a study on what a real "outsider" with good ideas on governance comes along, look no further than Andrew Jackson. Crazy old bastard knew a thing or two about governance. While i may be at odds with some of his viewpoints, I am 100% behind his method of running the country.
Problem is, as soon as he was gone they undid his good and memorialized it for posterity. He balanced the budget and ended the Fed. So when he left a new reservve bank was founded and he was given a position of mocking dishonor on the 20.
Trump, if he survives his enemies and does good, will end up having good undone when he leaves. All they have to do is wait 4 or 8 years.

Your post almost makes it seem like you want a monarch or tyrant. So far everything Trump has accomplished has been through executive orders. And a lot of those still need funding from Congress to actually accomplish anything.
