When an idiot like George W Bush is elected to run for 2 terms, well, I suppose anything is possible!
The one thing I hope for out of this is a stronger military. Ignorant decisions have been made and our strength has been diminished under the current rule, so that would be nice to see.

I admit, when all this started, I thought “the Donald” was in this for a joke, perhaps a tax break, or even a new reality show. I NEVER thought he was serious. Now, well, it kind of looks like he is going to be the guy on the ballot. So how on Earth are the American people making this decision? What is driving the public at large to want a pompous, arrogant blowhard, over the finely groomed Statesmen that are running against him?
Perhaps the People are just damn tired of Washington. I know I am. I sure don’t think Trump has what I consider “Leader of the United States” qualities, but I have to admit, whatever he might bring would be a refreshing change to the status quo. I doubt he will be the same l loud demanding, demeaning guy he is on stage, and likely, he will get “the talk” once he gets in office. (I have a theory that each president is shown a picture of the guy on the grassy knoll waving with his rifle, and then told to be nice and follow orders)
So the people will get a 4 year trial of what they asked for. Something completely different. The one thing I hope for out of this is a stronger military. Ignorant decisions have been made and our strength has been diminished under the current rule, so that would be nice to see. And I hope to be pleasantly surprised as to how “the Donald” will deal with other world leaders. I think he would do better without his twitter feed.
