2) Did they leave the economy in a healthy state?
3)Did they leave the country united?
4) Did the country lose more freedoms?
5) Did the president follow the constitution?
6) Was the world left a safer place?

a reply to: crazyewok

You should add which dude moves to make renewable energy a focal point?
Who slams/slammed it as not feasible without proper research and development?

Who moves to lift up the quality of life even for a non ally?
Who stood on his own two feet because he has/had a spine and knows/knew how to utilize it?

Who's going to be a role model valued by future generations?
Who's going to make life for everyone on planet Earth a priority?

Did I raise the bar of hope too high?
One can dream, I prefer experiencing it in my lifetime.

add to that, and im pretty sure others will do
did they seek to make the world a safer place?
did they seek to communicate with other nations peacefully?
did they point out to their nation that they shouldn't impose anything on other nations?
did they mind their own FKN business and try to lower the national debt instead and solve every freakin inside problems at least?

there are a lot of questions, but im pretty sure no one will go through them
