I agree.

I seem to remember that Obama wished he could act alone, without Congress.

You don’t think these things and more can’t happen in America? Just wait and see, it is coming. So, you better brace yourself.
You’re cray cray.

It’ll be four more years of what we currently got; nothing going on (assuming repubs hold senate).

Dreading the next Dem-POTUS. But if Hillary decides to jump-in and snag that office, I am good, she can turn-things-around for the USA.

They pretend to be the racially progressive party, but they're a bunch of phonies.
Bill Clinton was a decent president with +'s & -'s like most presidents. However in this environment, he would be considered a conservative in the (D) party, and would have no chance at the nomination.

For example, in 2016 a candidate named Jim Webb ran on a moderate platform that was left of Bill, but still not hard leftist.
Yet Hillary ran to get to the left of an avowed socialist (Bernie is really a communist at heart) and apologized for many of her husbands "mistakes".
So you would have thought Webb might have a shot, right?

He was blown out of the race early, and actually said he no longer recognized his party anymore.

The MSM and liberal Democratic leaders have claimed the (R's) have gone far right, but in reality they are very much the same as they were back in the 80's.
But the (D's) have gone radical left and listening to the campaign promises/ideas this current crop of leftist kooks are saying, they would have been run out of Bill Clinton's era Democrat party.

Don't believe it?

Look for yourself at the (D) platform from just the Clinton years in the 90's, to see how far left they are today.

Judging by what Conservatives are saying in this thread, if Trump loses the next election to a Democrat there's going to be enough crying to fill buckets!!!

Just STOP fanning the flames of a generation war! Every generation has had its issues. These accusations of yours are what divides us. Why would we want our kids and grandkids to suffer? Sheesh.

And 130 Democrats in Congress have already voted to lower the voting age to 16. If that doesn't produce the results that they want what will they do? Lower it some more? The age of 3 just may be on the table some day.
Well asylum seekers and refugees in the Netherlands get free health care as well as quite a number of European countries. Meanwhile they have universal health care as everyone is eligible for health care. Yet the sky has not fallen in Europe.

Well Germany has universal free university education and even asylum seekers and refugees can access that. The sky has not fallen there.

Well as for lowering the voting age to 16 quite a number of countries have done that and the sky has not fallen there. They are Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Cuba, Ecuador, Nicaragua and the Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey (three self-governing British Crown Dependencies. Anyway despite this conservative governments still gained power in Austria and Brasil despite that. Anyway 16 year old's are old enough to be aware of what happening and can have a good knowledge of political parties in their country and I think they are mature enough to vote.

I vacillate between hoping one of the crazy lefties (like Warren or Sanders) gets the nomination because there's no way someone with such extreme America-destroying policies could win the general - and then I read the comments by some of the arrogant and delusional "progressives" on this forum and realize that nothing is a sure thing.
