    Good topic.... Trump ran for president largely as a self-promotion gimmick, never expecting, and never wanting to become president.

    From the start its been my perception that his goal was to promote himself in such a way that he got millions of new customers buying his products, staying at his hotels, playing golf on his golf courses.... He expected to loose, and wanted to loose, because by loosing he becomes a martyr of all that he claims is wrong. This allowed him to say anything he wanted during the campaign that would make him popular with millions of people would be loyal to him after the election.

    If Clinton had been elected, he could continue to attack her endlessly, say\tweet anything he wanted and never have to fullfill any campaign promises. He could claim he lost because the system is corrupt, the media is corrupt, etc, etc, etc. He would not have to prove anything that he says is true. By loosing he could remain in the spotlight in such a way that he had a lot more control, but not have take action.

    Trump is a sales guy and promoter, once the deal is done, he hands everything over to others to handle the details. He's the front man, not the guy to runs the show.

    Excellent comment! I agree 100%. I don't believe anyone in the country was more shocked and upset that Trumpy won than Trumpy himself!

    I happened to catch it on NPR and I couldn't believe it! My 4th grade granddaughter can give a better public speach than Trumpy did and then when I heard Trudeau speak I was so embarrassed for our country. This guy is without a doubt the dumbest most ignorant person to ever hold the title of "President" !

    Right now I'm on a cross country trip from NH to AZ.

    Driving thru TN, Arkansas, OK, TX I've seen nothing but churches, white people and pro trump billboards! It's totally disgusting what this country has become and makes me ashamed to be a citizen anymore.

    But, the weather is better than in NH!

    The typical Trumpy voter doesn't think past their nose much less understand truth or facts. How do you think he got elected - certainly not because he is such a fantastic American patriot! He appeals to the base instincts of his ignorant base. I say ignorant because they are not dumb or stupid just ignorant of the basic facts of life. All they understand is talking points that confirm their built in biases - the poor are lazy, atheists are going to go to hell, their hard earned money is going to go to help lazy, no good illegal Mexicans.

    People are ignorant because they were never taught not to be, it's a failure of society as a whole and a basic tenent of the conservative, right wingers that dumb is good (their president even told them he "loves" dumb voters)!

    And this is why you, of all people, should be fighting the Republicans who only have the interests of the 1% in mind. Their plan is to cut taxes - YES, but not for you or me only their wealthy buddies (they sorta don't make that clear do they).

    I ran a small business, very successfully, for over 40 years and paid all my taxes and was happy too. Stop feeling sorry for yourself and greedy to boot. You make the profit you have an obligation not only to society but to yourself to pay your share back - that's how life is Bucky.

    I heard (from some Canadian friends) Trudeau is going to build a wall and make us pay for it. They are going to put a 20% tax on all American goods which will force Canadian companies to start manufacturing in Canada (or China) and their economy will expand biggly thanks to Trumpy /s

    Ok. I will try to continue until I receive anymore ridiculous assumptions of who I am.

    First off why should 9 states be able to dictate the direction of all 50? 50% of the population reside in these states. I also don't think that is fair. I am open to solutions but do not know of any. Like I said before what is right for california and new york does not work here. Also I said Trump is not the answer but I do not believe Hilary really cared for any of my concerns. Yes the wall is stupid. Yes someone should block him from Twitter. He is not the leader we need but the one we have.

    I am absolutely willing to listen but keep it civil. Don't treat me like some idiot.

    Here is where it needs to start because honestly I don't see anything uniting the country anywhere in the future.

    Umm, you told us you voted for Trumpy! Are you having second thoughts yet? If not you certainly should.

    Actually, by coming here, you have shown you have doubts and are looking for confirmation of your beliefs. It's a good start and I give you credit for taking the first step towards reality.
