It is one year since the election of President Trump. I remember all kinds of reaction by Democrats about what they believe would happen. Has any of them come true?
Have you lost any rights that you had one year ago?
Has the US lost in our foreign dealings with other nations?
Have we lost respect around the world?
Have you personally lost government benefits?
Have you lost your healthcare insurance?
In my own case, my portfolio has increased by 15% in the last year. Not muched changed on the other issues. My social security check is automatically deposited into my account.
I still have medicare...
This is not a trick question. I would just like to know from real people, what they experienced in the first year of Trump administration?
It is ironic with all the fear of sexism, it took a Trump election, to bring out all the sexual harrassment cases in recent days...in a way, women in 2017 are better off in the work place as a result...
It would figure that you would give Trump credit for this (aside from trying to create momentum around your post by replying to your own discussion right away like you always do).
If I were a Democrat, I'd respond; but I think Wilderness pretty much nailed what my response would be, anyway. I think it would be really funny if a pro-Trump Dem responded to this question. I don't think you realize just how many Dems (and people who voted for Obama) also voted for Trump.
That is part of the distortion in your mind, Jack. How can things be 'all the fault of the left'; if the left helped you get your boy into office?
For the last time, I did not vote for Trump. He was not my choice and I also expalined it many times. I am a conservative and Trump is not a conservative. I just make observations as I see it. I did not give him credit but just comment on the irony. I hope you see the difference.
If you start out with a wrong assumption about me, you should rethink your conclusions...perhaps?
Have a nice day.
With regard to Trump, I must admit, I am enjoying the up side down turmoil that he caused in Washington and exposing the swamp on both sides... it could not have happened to a nicer bunch of people.
I did not vote for him but I like what he is doing and I support many of his policies.
I will defend him when he is attacked wrongly and I will criticize him when he goes against his word.
That is called being "consistent".
Now I've heard just about everything ! "The left helped put Trump in office " , I'm sure they did but not in the "reality "that most of them live in , there hasn't been as much obstruction from the left against someone in office in decades . I'm just truly happy that in 2016 the true image of the left has finally emerged , that being from the oft positively projected image of the sixties.
But to take credit for Trump , that trumps it all .
What seems to have happened is... MANY lefties voted for Trump cuz they were going to vote for Bernie, anyway - and didn't like being jerked around like the Dems did. Imagine, 100% FREE everything people are ON YOUR SIDE for spite, Jack! LoL! And our course, there are also many lefties who were going to vote for him without a concern for Bernie for the same reasons most people did: our ENTIRE government sucks (not just the left or the right); and it needed a wake-up call.
And now that so many Conservatives are realizing this, NOW you are all starting to attack 'Progressives' and 'Moderates' who refused to vote for him - for being level-headed NON-hate-mongerers.
The" hate mongers "of the last forty years have all been the political obstructionists , protesters , activist's ,offices sit -ins , campus activist's and If you will , the Sen, Frankens of the political world !
Now you're going to tell us they secretly voted for Trump ? That the real "progressive left "secretly wanted him to win ?
Try another one .......Oh please !
You will find that all the TDS crowd will claim a tremendous loss of respect in the world community. With some truth, particularly if you "forget"/ignore the positive words/actions of a few that recognize good policies coming from the white house. His language, his personal tweets of governmental actions, his response to attacks via tweets, his almost total lack of PC considerations etc. are NOT what is expected of a high ranking politician and I'm sure there is loss of respect from them. Of course, the loss of respect from Obama's bowing, scraping and put downs of the country were carefully hidden behind applause and kudo's and I suspect Trump has more real, actual respect than Obama ever did from other leaders.
Hang-on to that portfolio, the stock market is hot after the tax cut, thanks to President Trump. Even his most hateful enemies are secretly gleaming about that in their ungrateful shadows.
A lot of people have laughed at my deductions --The left is caught up in a world of fantasy hate AND there is no relationship between the left and progressiveness .
Said it before and I'll continue !
The Democrats of 2017 are the progressives, the liberals, and the left. They are one and the same. They do not believe in our Constitution and given the choice, they prefer a socialist government. Thst is how far they have drifted away from the party of JFK...
That is not how I read the election. The progressives wanted Bernie but were cheated by the DNC. They either stayed home in protest or voted for Hillary holding their nose. On the GOP side, there were some 40 percent Trump supporters, but some conservative like me sat it out and did not vote.
The 20 percent that are in the middle, many of them women, voted by a majority for Trump. That was what made the difference. He ended up with a large majority in the electoral college but did not win the popular vote by 2-3 million. These were mostly large population States like California and NY...Big Blue states... but it was not enough.
I knew it all along that our electoral system, though imperfect, will elect the best candidate that the people wanted. That is the beauty of our democratic electoral process. The majority don't always win.
I remember reading about and listening to Democrats (moderates / classical liberals) switching Party to vote before the election, because they felt the party had moved so far-left that they identified more as conservatives. ... But, I don't remember hearing about any of the lefties / progressives (socialists / communists) switching sides.
Seems there were maybe 10's of thousands that switched to Republican, but I am going on memory. I remember mentioning that in the forms at the time and was scoffed at by pro-regressives.
