    Do you believe that President Trump is taking America.....FORWARD or BACKWARDS?  Why?  Why not?

    While Conservatives applaud the changes that President Trump is making in terms of jobs & instituting tougher changes for America, for Liberals it is just the opposites,  they see the decimation of hard-earned changes in terms of civil rights for Blacks, Latinos, the LBGT community, & women.

    I love these questions, and answers, put in terms of Liberal & Conservative, Republican & Democrat.  When Trump is none of that, and why he was elected has nothing to do with people shifting towards or away from either party.

    Trump is the anti-establishment President, he is the people's big F.U. to all the corporate corruption and blatant disregard for what's best for Americans by our elected officials.

    Yes, all those 30+ year politicians that brought us the Mortgage Crisis and near collapse in 2007/8, and NAFTA, and so many other wonderful things that have helped drain this country of jobs and resources, and stagnated wages and benefits, are still there... untouchable it seems, and unaccountable.

    Criminals like McCain, Waters, Pelosi and Graham seem to survive every 'bad' decision, every collusion with corporate or foreign powers they align with, every disaster they have helped guide this country into in the last 30 years.

    Trump rode a wave of dissent with the establishment (and that includes with a lying, scheming, reality altering Media that helps support D.C.'s antics and efforts to enslave and erode what few freedoms remain in America).

    Trump rode a wave of growing backlash against the PC efforts, the 'if your white you're a racist' mentality fostered today in so many 'higher education' campgrounds and communities, and perhaps this would be why so many consider this a Liberal vs Conservative issue.

    But mostly Trump rode a wave of people who are angry, and will remain angry, at the loss of jobs (due to NAFTA, CAFTA, Open Borders, H1-B &2B visa programs) and benefits, loss of homes (Mortgage crisis claimed millions of people's homes while the banks got bailed out and richer off of tax payers), and loss of dignity (the 'American way' being defiled and denigrated by the 'globalist elites in D.C. and our media)...

    When you have what you value most stripped from you, and then are told to shut up about it (you aren't allowed to complain, you because you a one of those white privileged people responsible for all the world's woes) there is going to be backlash... the only question that remains... are those tens of millions of people who fit this definition going to be 'satisfied' with the election of Trump and his efforts, or are they going to continue to in their dissatisfaction and distrust of their government and media, to the point where they start to do even more about it?
