But there are times, Trump talks and tweets too much. He is continually stepping on his own good news. Drives me crazy.
I couldn't bring myself to vote for him (voted for Gary Johnson), but you hit the nail on the head. SCOTUS was a huge win. But Trump keeps trying to appeal to the lowest common denominator and, frankly, it's a joke.
You voted for HRC.
And it's that attitude that keeps the vicious cycle going.
Just a fact. I voted for Ross Perot in 92. I too ended up voting for a Clinton. I guess I wasn't too savvy in 1992. At least my man had some brains, not like Gary Johnson. But I am sure you felt better, just as I did.
I did. I was able to walk away from the ballot box with my dignity in tact.
And I, too, would have voted for Perot in 1992 if I was old enough to do so. I was the only kid in my 7th grade class who took the "Perot" side of the argument, read his book a few times, and genuinely wanted the guy to win. I guess I would have voted for a clinton back then too...
Maybe you are proving the point that with age one becomes much more conservative and less idealistic. Obviously there is a large age distinction between us. Feeling good by voting for Johnson was a vote for HRC. Perhaps you just knew that Texas would never vote for HRC and your vote didn't count. But what if one vote really did count? At least when I voted outrageously I voted for someone smart, You voted for an idiot. I have the same argument with my much younger brothers too so don't take it personal.
Well, I'm not sure I buy the 'age to conservative values' argument. I've ALWAYS voted for the Republican as long as I've been able to vote, except for this year. If Trump is the direction of the Republican party, I want nothing to do with it. My choice may be an "idiot" in your mind, but he was a better choice than the reality TV host. At least he had some executive experience. I do agree with what Trump is doing for the economy, and the fact that he's prevented some bad court appointments, but that's really about it. Regardless, he'll be a one-term president and then just wait...the dems will make us pay tremendously for his presidency. When all is said and done, there will be no wall, healthcare will be left in shambles to the point where people are begging for single payer, and the country will continue its downward spiral. I welcome the opportunity to be proven wrong, but I'm not holding my breath. The US has no hope when we're run by two peas (R & D) in the same pod. Give me Rand Paul, Trey Gowdy, or Justin Amash on a ticket and then I'll consider voting R again. But the republicans can only thank themselves for my vote this year.
Look, I get the appeal for trump. He's a wonderful salesman and people are buying it. But he's a clown.
