We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
I would be remiss to neglect this: “I play to people’s fantasies. People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular. I call it truthful hyperbole. It’s an innocent form of exaggeration—and it’s a very effective form of promotion.”
President Trump has far exceeded my expectations in his first year as president, and frankly I think he is the only one who could have done it. He has a capacity for rational and common-sense action that was totally lacking in his predecessor. And he follows through on his promises.
Getting tax reform through was a major accomplishment that really levels the playing field again in terms of competing with other nations. I am hoping that it means that the trillions in capital which fled the U.S. during the Obama administration will flow back in and get our dead economy going again.
President Trump is the only major presidential candidate in the past thirty years who is not owned by Davos nor the Bilderbergs. THAT is why he is so effective. And that is also why the screeching and wailing is so loud against him by not only the Democrats but the Koch-sucking Rove Republican swill as well, and the Media, and the rest of the Western "leaders". When Bergoglio says bad things about you, you must be doing a WHOLE lot right.
My expectations for Trump were low - but he wasn't hillary the tyrant crook, which was good enough.
But the way he has hung in there and vigorously fought off and partially neutralized the press propaganda and evil-infiltrated FBI/Justice Department, is admirable. He has had to get lobbyist-bribed, amoral, self-enriching congresscritters to act, even if imperfectly. He was left a dangerous and volatile multipronged foreign catastrophe, which may not be resolvable. He has kept us from losing our sovereignty and constitutional rights to foreign treaties.
If he can even partially tame the taint, favoritism, theft and and corruption in congress, the obama-appointed courts, and the agencies, he could be one of the greatest presidents ever.
I speak as a non-citizen and yet I thank the Good Lord every single day that the witch did not get the presidency and we have a President who truly seems to be what is written on the can (yes, even though I am not an American I consider this man my president too).
Keep him well to do his good work for the next 7 years.
