    I have posed this question before but it needs to be repeated.
    What if you Never Trumpers are wrong about him?
    I am speaking to you the media...NYT, CNN, NBC, CBS and ABC...of the world...
    The Bill Kristol, George Will and David Brooks of the world...
    The Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumers of the world...
    The Jeff Flake and Bob Korker of the world...
    The Hillary voters...
    The Comey and Mueller of the world...
    The Oprah and Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn and Barbra Strisand  and Jon Stewart of the world...

    What if Trump accomplished all or most of what he promised and Made America Great Again...
    What if he won the Nobel  Peace Prize...?
    What if he made the world safer and more affluent through fair trade and commerce free enterprise...?
    What if he achieve the impossible and brought peace to Korea and Middle East?

    What would you do?
    Would you admit you were wrong and apologize and be grateful for this strong leader of the free world defending traditional values...?
    Or Would you double down like Steven Colbert and Rachel Maddow and go down if flames?

    History is repeating itself...Ronald Reagan went through a similar situation in the 1980s over 30 years ago. Look what happened to him...

      What if everything you belief and were taught about conservatism and how government works was distorted or wrong?
      What if Adam Smith was right and Karl Marx was wrong about economic and social interactions...?
      What if Capitalism is better than Socialism for the masses?
      What if faith, family and religion still has relevance in the 21st centrury as it did in the 18th century when our nation was born?

      So many questons to think about...

        These are deep and serious questions. What if there is only a 10% chance things will workout as I say...and Trump is successful in his first term.
        What would you do?

        Politics comes and goes and ups and down and sideways...
        History is here and in the collective conscience of our people.

        I suppose you can ask me just the opposite. The same rules apply.
        What if Trump turned out to be a fake, phony and fraud and was only out for himself and screwed up the world worse than he came into office?

        What would I do?

        First of all, if that happens, I would be disappointed of course and I would apologize for defending him over this time period...
        I would be fair in my assessment of his overall record.
        If he made gains and did some good, I would give him credit when it is due. I would call him out on things that he messed up or made worse or created. Fair is fair.

        Finally, I would move on and learn from my experience and work to make our country a better place in spite of him or Congress or the media or our populace.
        Life is a never learning experience. It is a maze that each of us traverse on a daily basis.
        We can only do our small part to help and not harm.

      You're absolutely right Jack , but don't expect the resisters to change , to "come to Jesus " if you will , on this important  lesson .  Why ?  and we've grown  fatigued  of saying this , government  entitlement  IS the left . All else is inherently evil to them .    Why do you think they accuse me of hating the left ?   Because I point out exactly that which  they deny , shift , spin and politicized to deflect the truth from your EXACT question .     

      The left wants all of life in America to be designed , initiated ,dictated  and carried through to the manifestation  of all things "Big government" in our daily lives .   From early day care -education to end of life entitlement and    THAT is exactly what the right in America fights so hard against .

      Trump is THE game changer , yet in spite of that the left will never admit or recognize it  because it IS the game changer away from the ideals of the Left to back to center , that  smaller and more accountable government .

      Why DO you think we are so polarized !?!?
