Now that Donald Trump has lost on the "wall" what should he turn his attention too? What issue should he turn the government and the 24/7 news cycle on its ear over?


I'd vote for "Congretional Term Limits"

In a short amount of time he has stacked up quite a few examples of where Congress has proven just how dysfunctional it is.

For example they can't preside over the nomination of a Supreme Court Justice with out going bat $hit crazy; they can't legislate important issues like DACA and imigration reform; they can't agree on non partisan issues like infrastructure; they can't even keep the government funded for more than a few months at a time.

If Trump came out swinging against Congress it would be a great show that quite a few people would get behind. People across the political spectrum and most importantly independents would love it.

Its also a great way to come out ahead of the Muller investigation and any ramifications he might see as a result. If he draws the first blood in an Presidential vs Congress fight he can always spin impeachment, or what have you, as simply pretty retaliation on the part of career politicians in Congress.

Of course he's going to see opostion from the deranged members of the left and news media who get worked up over two scopes of icecream; that's par for the course. The real problem would come from the career politicians on the right... they don't want to mess with their gravy train anymore than the career politicians on the left.

The question would be whether or not Trump needs the support of that group on the right?

My inclination is that he doesn't need them; I think many of them have been working against him anyway when it suits them and are indifferent when it doesnt.

Based on his track record, I would hope that he tries to make congressional limits limitless.
Then he will be shot down and we will finally get congressional limits.

Then he should say that marijuana should never be legalized at the federal level. Then, he will get slapped down with full legalization.

One can hope

I'm gonna be praying for him, it wouldn't be a bad idea for him to do so himself.

Sadly, he is presently fighting for his life. Everyone around him, incuding his children, are being avidly pursued by the demos through Mueller.

Now that he has lost the House, he will have an impossible situation getting any legislation approved.

He is probably already a lame duck president. And he knows it.

Communism / Socialism

He should come out in favor of total socialism so that the Democrats will fight tooth and nail against it!

I have a disability Blue Jacket that makes Spelling and other forms of written and verbal communications difficalt. I do my very best to cope with this disability and spend double if not triple the amount of time most ordinary people do composing my written work so as not to subject others to my issues. And finally I use all the current technology to help with my problems.

However all of these things are not perfect and spelling errors always remain in my work products. You should see what it looks like when I don't take this time or use current technology.

But the fact that I can not be perfect in this field of activity does not mean I will run away from it. That would be me letting my disability win.

And when I encounter small minded people who make themselves feel better by putting other people, people who might have disabilities, down I will not run away from them. That would be me letting the bigots and bullies of the world win.

I am glad you don't want to respond to my post; I don't want to spend my time conversing with a bigot. I just wish you'd have saved both our time and didnt respond at all;.

Perhaps to stop kissing Putin's ass would be a good start.

He promised us great universal health care.

He should get on that.

I would agree; there are a lot of things he could attempt to play reverse physiology on.

I don't think I would want him to deal with health care.

Term limits don't have a negative repercussion; if and when he loses on it, we are in the exact same place.

Healthcare can be made much worse.

I like your way of thinking.

I am curious if he Could make an executive order written for congressional term limits? Is it possible, I don't know- maybe someone here does. If he did that would be so flipping awesome.


ETA: I normally dislike EO's; I would approve of this one for sure.

In the short term It would be quite awesome.

But EOs have the problem of not lasting. Something like this would need real legislation, if not constitutional amendment to be real.

Edit: saw your edit about disliking EOs.

I thought about that too; the next president could just change it back. Then I think that would be quite a risky endeavor and would speak volumes as to their intentions; not good optics for that new president.
