Seems like people don't want to have it, and want to blame the government for everything under the sun.

And, this applies to people from all political parties.

Its like with everything in life, you have to find balance.

Why become so miserable in life just because you are unhappy with the government? Alot of the unhappiness isover exaggerated or imagined things anyways.

I don't think most in the world understand that the U.S. is currently undergoing a generational civil war. The Trump wing represents the old, nativist, nationalist, ultra-religious and fearful of science-wing of the Baby Boomer Generation and even older. 2020 will be the first time that they are eclipsed in size by the Millennials, who represent a more globalist, open-minded, secular, educated and diverse America. The Trump supporters are the dying gasp of a reactionary and close-minded America that used to exist.

Once the Millennials truly take control of Government, I think America's brightest days will return.

Kick Turkey out of NATO, they are providing weapons to IS to kill Kurds and now they are campaigning in European Countries to get enough votes from Turks with dual citizenship to make Turkey a dictatorship.
Dual citizenship should be banned!

Plenty of countries in the world are going through a generation civil war, America is hardly special in this regard.

The recently published white paper of the ministry of defence stated that Finland's most important military allies are Sweden and the US. Other important partners are Germany, UK, France, Norway, Estonia, Denmark, Poland and The Netherlands.

This reflects pretty much the common perception of who our friends are.

Speak for yourself please, you do not represent all millennials (and contrary to popular belief there are plenty of millennials/minorities/etc that voted for Trump as well although many had different reasons for doing so).

Romanian citizens are usually too overly domestic without a doubt. Rarely venture outside of mainland Europe. Rare to have any reach mainland Asia with the sole exception of Turkey. They don’t even know the existence of Georgia, or Azerbaijan that close by ironically.

For Romania’s allies, they are Italy, Germany, Bulgaria, Greece, France, Cyprus, Poland, Czech Republic, Austria. Close connections without any friction. Amiable relations.

Those enemies or mixing of relations are Hungary, Russia, Ukraine, Moldova, Serbia. Out of land territory or conflicting alien diplomacy. Although, Bulgaria’s Black Sea up to around Balchik used to belong at Romania’s sea region decades ago.
