It's a free country. Trump and his supporters have said 10,000 times worse on any given day about Hillary, Obama and numerous others.

It will only divide the country even more, if that is possible.
I think by the time Trump leaves office, the divide will be insurmountable.

I also expect new, more equitable trade deals struck with america's trading partners that will greatly benefit American workers.
I don't see healthcare happening. It didn't happen when Trump had the House and Senate in 2017. McCain voted it down to protect constituents, what a Congressman/woman SHOULD do. Why would 2021 be any different? Also I think it would be straight repeal and no replace. That will cost Trump and the Republicans dearly. McCain and others knew that in 2017 when they voted it down.

As for no wars, HAH. I see Trump going to war with Iran. He and Graham have been itching for war there.

Totally agree. Trump wants war with Iran and the GOP will do nothing to stop him.

New England would like to merge with Canada but that's never going to happen. We're not enough like the west coast to merge with them but we seem to be very little like the south. The Dems will feel disempowered and more furious than ever and that makes a lot of Repubs laugh. Well, they can laugh, but that's not such a smart thing to do because the future of our union is at stake and laughing will only make the Dems angrier.

Trump will probably clamp down on the border completely instead of letting asylum seekers have a try at it. That will make Hispanics furious. I don't know where any of this leaves black people but we're all divided up into factions now anyway so it will just get worse.

I think there will be bombs, shootings, maybe even assassination/s as people become more and more frustrated and furious. This violence will be political in nature, not just mass violence. When Trump removes health insurance, probably organized groups will verbally attack him and more groups will organize to stop him. Maybe he won't be able to take it and will finally crumble or suffer a major health or mental meltdown.

It won't be pretty if Trump gets re-elected; people have really had enough.
You are doing a good job of summarizing modern liberals. Intolerant of anything that doesn't bend to their will. Willing to use violence to get their way. Unwilling to live within the bounds of a democracy and insisting on a totalitarian dictatorship. Acting like spoiled children throwing temper tantrums. And yes, as you said, their fundamental mental instability may well lead to complete "meltdowns". So basically, as I said in post 2, a continuation of the past 2 1/2 years.

OK, so who makes Play Doh-need to buy some stock. And a few truckloads of binkies.

It is a free country. I donít think your words of hate for Trump is what he was talking about. I think it was your hate for 63 million people that was a little shocking.

There's something called Project Blitz right now which is a great threat to separation of church and state.

Do you have any idea just how silly that sounds? Trump was one of the least "religiously" of the R primary candidates in '16. He has supported homosexuals. He has banged a freekin' pornstar-while married. I liked Ted Cruz, I think he was the smartest and the best debater of all the candidates, but his excess...dependance on religion concerned me.

Trump is the first president in decades that actually trying to help working Americans. To get some fairness in our trade laws. To actually try to address our broken system of immigration, both legal and criminal. To stand up to some major corporations that benefit by laws that encourage outsourcing of American manufacturing-and that benefit from the labor of illegal aliens undercutting American workers.

In short-Trump is doing what the Dems claimed to care about 20 years ago, before the party was taken over by the far-left nutjobs.

No, just 62,984,828. And people know who they are and will continue to know who they are long after Trump has gone. They have taken delight in the division of this country and have to know the favor will be returned. The people who scream socialism are perfectly fine taking $50 million in farm subsidies and tariff relief, supporting 15% of West Virginia on Disability, not to mention all the ways coal miners are catered to when there are only 50,000 of them. They hate socialism unless they are the beneficiaries - then they love them some socialism.

I predict the seas will boil, the rivers will run red with blood, there will be locusts in the sky and in your food, the crops will wither, and babies will cry out asking their mothers why they were born. And oh yeah, cats and dogs... living together. Mass hysteria.

When he is elected again, people will keep on doing what they are doing now. If you want a job, you can find one. If you cry every day because of who is in the WH then you will probably keep doing it. The earth will still turn and I will go about my day, just like the day before and like every day from 2009 to 2016, and all the years before.

Rand Paul was the only sane choice in 2016.
