Re: Donald Trump
The ability of our president to make any lasting change is directly linked to how much support they have in congress. (My fellow Americans please remember the civics lessons you received from the 31st best educational system in the world). With that said, Trump is too loud, volatile and obnoxious for even the most right wing of republicans in congress. If he were to be elected I think you would see a very different trend in Washington. You would see the more center leaning republicans and democrats working closely together just to stop any policy that Trump try’s to enact but fall short of cooperating on anything else. Government shutdowns, lower pay, increased taxes, and more industry moving overseas. Also if you put two stubborn, macho, egomaniacal paranoid control freaks,(Trump and Putin) both with their fingers on the button to the two most powerful militaries and largest nuclear weapons stockpiles in the world???? This frightens me. What happened to the nation that I, and any of my fellow veterans, put on a uniform and got shot at, blown up and will spend the rest of my life with some of the most horrific memories stuck in our heads, to defend. If this happens I think I will look into moving to Ireland.
I was really hoping my man Bernie was going to shake things up and show everyone how it was done. If I had my way every American would take out a dictionary and look up the meaning of socialism and communism and see they are not the same. Oh well.
And don’t get me started on Clinton……
