I don't understand how people could not love Trump. He is hilarious. He is kicking tail. He drives liberals to the precipice of madness. He has a
blast being President. He works like a dog to put this country back on track and return it to its former glory from the near Third World crap hole
its quickly turning into. What's not to LOVE!
Hillary is in prison, the walls under construction, we are no longer funding known exporters of terrorists (Israel, Saudia Arabia, Qatari), the
privatized banking cartel (fractional reserve banking) is being audited and investigated, oh.... wait a minute....
When you take out of all your "he works like a dog to get this nation running," bells and whistles and instead focus on his actual policies and his
(failures) when it comes to implementing them.... looks a whole lot different.
You seem to be under the incorrect assumption/delusion that I am dumb enough to expect/want/care that he implements all of his stated policies. I
don't expect that he will repeal/replace Obamacare. Frankly, its not in his control. Its up to the Senate and House and we all know they never get
much accomplished and even when they do it usually is a watered down, worthless pile of dung. My preference would be that they don't repeal/replace
Obamacare. It will be fun to watch it gradually choke down the economy and peoples disposable income until the whole country is in an uproar and it
is the base cause for another recession. Then it will be like a stone tied around the necks of those unfortunate souls in the Democratic Party.
Trump can step back and say I tried but the Democrats and Republicans failed to fix the mess. Then he will have all the leverage in the world to get
what he really wants in healthcare reform.
I will give in to the point that Trump's whole approach to healthcare reform is fundamentally flawed. You cannot address the cost of healthcare
without addressing the actual cost of healthcare. To do this you must mandate fixed and transparent costs for doctors, hospitals, and drug companies
that are substantially less than what is paid today. Screwing around with insurance schemes will NEVER, EVER drive down the cost enough. The
American people are being screwed by their hospital, doctors, and drug companies. Its a scam of the highest order and they get away with it because
they have basically formed a monopoly on a service we suffer and die without. Ever wondered why all the hospitals can build new, big, beautiful
facilities when they are allegedly going broke?
As far as tax reform goes, it seems that reforming business taxes would be logical, ie you want more jobs, you need more businesses, so to have more
you lower the tax burden for them. It is clear that the government understands that when you tax something it creates a disincentive to participate
in that activity. You know this because when they didnt want you to smoke they taxed the living hell out of cigarettes.
Does this mean that Trump will succeed in lowering taxes, nope because he is dependent on a bought and paid for congress to pass the legislation.
But ultimately in my mind Trump has already been a massive success. He beat Hillary and began to drive the Progressive agenda back. He has changed
the attitude of the country from Obama's groveling nation to one that asserts its strength and power. He removed us from the Paris Climate agreement,
which is one of the biggest scams in history. We were expected to piss 100's of billions down a rat hole to maybe trim the temperature by 1 degree
over 100 years. And that is a big maybe. We know government never actually accomplishes its goals, so if we were lucky they might have shaved off .1
degrees in 100 years. Then they would have tried to convince us how that .1 degree was the difference between life and death of every species on the
planet. Anybody with a brain knows it was just a massive redistribution of wealth to the poorer countries. Even though, we have to truly be the
poorest country, after all we are 20 TRILLION in debt and have like another 80-250 TRILLION in unfunded liabilities.
Trump is a success because he is the master at redirecting the Congress and the media at his every whim. He is literally the tail wagging the dog. He
has brought Congress down to a whining, crying mess, which means they arent passing more laws/rules/regulations to screw things up more than they are.
Soon as they get focused on something constructive he drops a tweet bomb and they all go running around in a circle like 4 years old children with
their a$$es on fire. Its a beautiful thing to witness and wonderfully amusing.
