I know we had our problems. Lots to complain about, be angry about, little-to-no trust in government, "throw the bums out!" Sure, but as bad as it was, don't you miss the America before Trump?

Instead of throwing out the bums, seems Trump surrounded himself with new ones. Instead of "draining the swamp," we simply got another swamp to contend with, wonder about. A POTUS who instead of explaining why we needed a new health care plan, to cover people with previous conditions, we have a POTUS who explains what women will let you do to them under the right conditions.

Instead of a Noble Peace prize and a world impressed that America would actually elect a black POTUS, we get a wall that Mexico will pay for, and "thousands of Muslims" Trump said were cheering on 9/11. We get the best health care plan ever, never seen. An international trade war and now China cozying up with Russia. Instead of Michelle, we get hanky panky with porn stars and Playboy bunnies and even better, hush money paid in the $100 thousands to keep them quiet.

Not that any of this should have us wonder what else needs to be hushed...

Right, but what about the economy and our 401Ks?

I knew I shouldn't have started this thread, but I do surely miss the good old days before Trump started making America great again...

Life must be tough for you. Not sure how you make it through each day.

No, not at all. Under Obama's reign we were heading towards Totalitarian Communism, and the political weaponization of Government against Conservatives, Libertarians, and Republicans.

Thanks for the sympathy, concern, no doubt just as sincere and honest as Trump tends to be, but don't worry about me none. I've had my disappointments about prior presidents. Maybe not like with Trump, but this too shall pass, and I have some level of hope and confidence that America will be better again, even if not soon enough...

Wow! I never saw any of that you so well vividly describe!

No doubt you can see things all those Obama supporters simply can't, re-electing Obama for a second term no less! Scary, what else you can see. Bet you are a good patriotic American unlike Obama and all them other folks out to ruin America too. Right?

And here I thought the only disaster we were dealing with at the time was the "Great Recession!"

Yes. I hate this autocracy run by a petty little man who is so needy and insecure that it is exhausting. I am very grateful to the anonymous resistance, so at least he can't just start a war on his own.

Not much. Its much more exciting now moving forward and enjoying the prosperity that we were deprived of by an idiot and his captivated ignorant cult followers for 8 years. Its like a bear coming out of hibernation and finding a bucket of honey at the entrance of his cave.

Well, I never understood the point of Obama's Presidency.

So, not really.
