    The Libertarian persepctive falls apart for me, because of the open borders.

    This is no longer a frontier country, with a man-power shortage, no entitlement mentality & endless miles of virgin forest to be tamed.

    The US would quickly be overrun with 3rd world aborigines, devolve into chaos and get turned into a socialist shit-hole or worse.

    Because, He should've declared a national emergency, ordered the Military to build the wall on day 1 and He's offered twice to Cuck on DACA, for the spawn of illegal invaders. Say what you want. but, it's the primary reason he received 304 electoral votes.

    He also spent too much time dicking around trying to work with the do-nothing Congress....I could see giving them a chance. But, After the first year, when it became clear they weren't going to try and implement his agenda..... he should've taken a page from Black Jesus Obama and gone straight 'Rule by Executive Fiat' mode.

    So you want a dictatorship. Apparently, the "checks and balances" you "educated" me on aren't something you really believe in.

    What I want has nothing to do with it....... But, Until they restore the integrity of the Supreme court (with Roberts and others being compromised) fix the problem of dual citizenship and clean the pedo- pervert trash out of our government, we are living a post-constitutional world and so we probably would benefit from a temporary, Far Right- wing government (Not that I'm hoping for that)...

    But, Don't worry Sarge...They're pretty close, to restoring the republic, for you...... The next supreme court justice is warming up in the bullpen.

    That's the thing. We aren't going to benefit, or fail, due to any of it. It's not going to change. Nothing. For a very long time.

    Haha.... worst take ever.....

    It came out that The DNC and Hillary Clinton rigged the primary against him..... Then He Endorsed and Campaigned for her.

    Total Kabuki theater.... He was just put up to give the appearance that she had some opposition.

    & Who can forget the Fat slob BLM hogs, taking the mic out of his hand and driving him off the stage, to bash Whitey for 5 minutes straight, at his own ‘campaign rally’ in Seattle. Totally staged.

    Don’t believe me? Try taking the stage of a US Senator .....& see what happens, to you....

    Agreed.... It will take a generation to fix it.......Unless there's an attack on the US or economic collapse....then, things can change very quickly...

    Sadly, that's the only thing that seems to bring everyone together, for a little while.

    Do you still think Jeb Bush is a lock to win the Republican Primary and that Hillary Clinton has a 98% chance of winning the 2016 election?
    I didn't think Jeb Bush was a lock, yes ... once it was down to DJT or HRC I thought it would be HRC.

    That said, DJTs win was a combination of a better campaign, a poorly run campaign by HRC, the failing of the DNC IRT the Sanders constituency, and it being a year / election that was anti-establishment.

    -DJTs campaign was very smart about where they concentrated, didn't waste time in NY, CA etc. as they knew they wouldn't win there ... why waste resources?

    -HRCs campaign was disfunctional, failed to campaign in / Michigan, largely ignored Pennsylvania and Wisconsin but assumed she would win there and get those electoral votes.

    -Sanders' supporters were pissed about the shenanigans the DNC pulled to game the primaries for HRC, many failed to turn out to support HRC.

    -2016 was the most anti-establishment year in memory. DJT was the GOP version of this sentiment, turning the GOP on its ear / ass. In contrast, the DNC (for all intent & purpose) colluded with the HRC campaign to guarantee her the nomination, despite their efforts ... Sanders ... a elderly, socialist white male gave HRC ... the poster child of the establishment ... a run for her money. I oppose nearly every aspect of Sanders' platform, but can't deny the guy tapped into something.

    All that together, not overwhelming support for DJT factored into a win. With two exceptions, win a state with 50% +1 vote and you get all the electoral votes, overwhelming popularity in CA ensured HRC the popular vote ... but only translates into 55 electoral votes ... the DJT campaign engineered an electoral landslide but the key factor was about 77,000 votes in Michigan, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania all three by less than 1% ... states that could easily swing back to the Democrats in 2020.

    In many ways, I see the DJT victory as very similar to the Ocasio-Cortez victory in NY last year. He tapped into a monumental anti-establishment sentiment, rode that with issues that have been simmering / burning at people for some time; Ocasio-Cortez did the same at the Congressional District level. Both were / are politically ignorant; they don't understand the system ... I don't mean politics / back room deals etc., but I mean how things actually get done ... his shortfall here is legislative procedure, hers is basic economics. Where I do think they are different: I think both are in many ways ignorant (lacking knowledge) of government. I think Ocasio-Cortez is unintelligent ... the product of a couple very expensive, what should be prestigious degrees ... but just not that smart and wants to lean on being "morally right vice factually correct" or something like that ... why not be both? I don't think DJT is unintelligent, I do think he is somewhat lazy as far as learning about how he could have gotten things done the last 2 years, or just reading the briefing materials provided to him on a variety of topics ... indicative of someone who doesn't want to learn. Both were elected by angry constituencies who saw a potential champion to 'stick it to' those who have made them angry ... whether it be mean, rich, old white people ... or immigrants, homosexuals, liberals etc. Supporters of both are willing to overlook the issues with their champions & make excuses for them as opposed to keeping their standards high and demanding they step up to the job they were elected to do.
    The most important six inches on the battlefield ... is between your ears.

    Which begs a hypothetical question. If a nationwide poll were to take place today to gauge interest in bringing Obama back into office for a life term, while eliminating Congress and SCOTUS altogether, thus giving him supreme powers, would the vast majority of voters below the age of 30 support this? I'm guessing hands down, these voters would overwhelmingly support this.

    Now, I don't see this happening anytime soon, but I have no doubt this country will be socialist within the next decade or two.
