Yeah we're doing so well. The student debt crisis is still expanding. Children are being locked in concentration camps on the border in inhumane conditions. We're losing respect from our allies worldwide. We have racists and/or full on white supremacists in charge of our policies. We have an executive branch that acts as though it is entirely above the law and refuses to hold itself accountable for anything. The opioid crisis is raging on even though Trump said he was going to help with that. We still have crumbling infrastructure even though Trump said he was going to help with that. The GOP and Trump are working on gutting the ACA. The tax "cuts" were a sham and we can't fund our government. We're actively working against the scientific community when it comes to combating climate change. Hate crimes are up.

That's just what I can think of off the top of my head. I mean, unless you're just privileged, wealthy, straight, Christian, white, and male, we are not doing pretty well with him as President. We're objectively doing poorly aside from the stock markets. Subjectively, you may believe that having racists in the executive branch is good. Subjectively, you may believe that more hate crimes is good. Subjectively, you may believe that climate change is a hoax started by the Chinese and wind turbines will give you windmill cancer. However, objectively, we're not doing well. Objectively, the student debt crisis is dire. Objectively, children being locked in concentration camps is abhorrent. Objectively, our infrastructure is still falling apart. Objectively, heroin and fentanyl are still killing people in nightmarish numbers. Objectively, our allies don't have the same respect for us as a country.

LOL. Ouch. I think it's time for BDB to come out as gay and with disability. Maybe he'll get a vote or two.

If the far left truly gained real power and started changing things there would definitely be a civil war. People in lots of states would be picking up arms and it would get very very ugly

In real life, it doesn't happen overnight. Changes tend to happen gradually to where even opponents don't perceive it as a threat until it reaches the point where you can't do much about it anyway.

For example, NYC was never this Far Left. But gradually it happened and now we're on the same level as California. New Yorkers used to make fun of California for being too crazy. Now this city would fit right in that state. And there's nothing you can do about it now. Conservatives, moderates or even moderate Democrats have no chance in NYC politics.

you disagree? Why do you think a bozo like Trump was elected. Once there's no Trump left to fight back there is only a certain amount a big chunk of the country will tolerate. If things go full socialist my money is on a civil war, and that side has all the guns - and yes these things take time to develop
