    It makes anyone a little angry to have to repeat what was already known before the election from the candidates own mouth but try these as a few examples. Trump openly stated these goals:

    1. Removal of Dodd Frank and the attached Volker Act that anyone aware of was the ONLY oversight for Wall Street and Banking.
    2. Promised to use overturning Roe v Wade as the LITMUS test for any SCOTUS candidate. RvW is flawed language so all women can hope for is no more SCOTUS seats come up or that later rulings perfected the language.
    3. Promised to ban a religion coming into our country.
    4. Promised to send Dreamers who were raised here to Mexico a country whose language many don't even speak.
    5. Promised to overturn the ACA and replace it with a universal plan which was his one giant lie only being what he would replace it with.
    6. Declared war on minorities abused by the judicial system.
    7. Surrounded himself with the alt-right in an open declaration that could not be pretended away.

    There is much more but any one of these things should have caused chills to any social liberal, progressive or otherwise.

    Spelling, for starters.

    Holy Toledo!

    Other than that, we'll survive the Creamsicle. He'll throw tantrums for another month or so and when impeachment proceedings start, he'll cut and run.

    As predicted.

    Except Trump is unable to do any of those things.

    Hillary would have done them all, and more. She's extremely adept. With extremely sinister motives.

    Not really. There's a sweet spot for tax rates just as there is for most other economic factors. Allowing wealth to overconcentrate while the middle class shrinks is playing Russian roulette with our entire way of life.

    You wouldn't listen. You don't seem to actually want any progressive policies. Just a corporate whore with more polish than Trump, so you can enjoy the middle class's death spiral in greater comfort.
    You knew nothing. You were wrong and maybe that is because liberal and progressive was new to you. I don't know but I know that the end result of tears from those who are truly impacted by this hog wash makes your denial a bit hard to comfort you with.

    So spelling is your criterion for advancement of human kind? You do know that Presidents Jefferson and Jackson, both Democrat idols, were poor spellers. In fact President Jackson once stated that he did not trust a man that could only find one way to spell a word.

    Given that other than in rhetoric, I literally cannot tell the difference between the Democrats and Republicans, I cannot help but agree with you. Plus I like your language.

    The country has been "oh, come on, it's just a little, it's a compromise, you can't have everything your way, just give a little here...a little more...a little more..." And now we wake up 40 years later with the Democratic party considerably right of where the Republican party used to be. Millions of Americans entrenched in this hideous Rush Limbaugh philosophy, regarding anything left of a wild west marketplace as treasonously un-American, essentially identical to the Soviet Union.
    Thanks from Madeline

    That's because the clintons have a propensity for killing off their impediments.
