Would anyone care to define a SJW?

Does it include any white who is a liberal?

If so, weren't the abolitionists who founded the Republican Party the original SJW's? If so, was that bad?

As far as identify politics goes, aren't the Republicans playing that game by catering to white, blue collar workers who are resentful of both urban whites and minorities of any stripe?

Trump can't even repeal Obamacare. And repealing Obamacare means tossing millions of Americans off their health insurance. I'm sure his popularity will skyrocket either way.

Hmmm....If Trump, who's often regarded as the biggest anti-establishment candidate, fails to deliver on his promises, we could see an anarchic revolution unfold by 2020. It's actually very much possible if you really think about it. Tons of people who never voted in their life, voted for Trump to help save the country.

If Trump is proven to be another repeat of the status quo, DC might be in danger from civil unrest or a complete boycott from the American people. We might see true change unfold if Americans start to realize that the old boss is the same as the new boss so to speak.

If Trump, however, does enough to keep the angry masses satisfied, the status quo of DC will still be maintained. The left and right paradigm will still continue to divide the country and Americans will be stuck choosing between "lesser evils" in elections for a lifetime to come.

I'm not saying that I want Trump to fail. Rather, I want the system in general to fail so that it can be restored.

Who am I kidding though? Americans are too busy watching reality TV and stuffing their faces with junk food to truly fight the system. So, you might as well root for Trump and hope that he truly turns out to be the lesser evil necessary to get some things accomplished. #Trump2020 for now...

The Trumpies have gone from thinking Hillary was about to die to thinking she'll be able to campaign in three years? What an amazing recovery!
