    The tax cuts and Military funding are 2 large issues he also promised to tackle along with border security and healthcare and reducing the deficit. Had he accomplished any two of these big issues, then everyone would be griping that he had 2 years and didn't do the other 3. So yes, I'm a gripper about not getting ACA repealed, but along with his 2 big accomplishments that he promised, he also accomplished a small step in dismantling ACA with the individual mandate gone. Then other smaller but important promises kept and accomplished, like moving the embassy to Jerusalem and increasing health care options for the vets. And considering the Anti-American Democrat, deep state Republican, and globalist obstruction that is working against Trump and the best interest of our country, along with the Anti-American media manipulating public opinion by lying and pounding on false moral outrage, he's done a pretty damn good job and accomplished a hell of a lot in those measly 2 years.

    Oh, and I almost forgot, "dismantling ISIS".

    So 2 years? Please, lets be realistic. Certainly no one on this forum expected that any president up against all this obstruction with so many large issues to take on could have accomplished it all in those ever so "lenghty?" 2 years. Sorry, but when I hear, he had 2 year and ... wasn't done, it just sounds asinine.

    I KNOW, RIGHT?

    The Left would have us forget all he HAS accomplished.

    Trump Style Congressional Candidates is Exactly what America Needs.

    And Trump Style employees for the head of the CIA, FBI, NSA, FAA, FCC, .....

    But!, People of Trump Character are so rare, as to make such a solution utterly impossible.

    I appreciate what you're saying here, but it is NOT an Option.

    Instead, We-the-People, must insist our lower politicians accept and follow President Trump's leadership.

    In the end, the failure, is OURS!
    -
    we do not elect kings. We elect representatives who are supposed to represent their immediate constituents. It's quite simple, if the majority of the people in a district want the wall, then that rep, regardless of party, must support the wall, and vise versa

    The tax cuts and Military funding are 2 large issues he also promised to tackle along with border security and healthcare and reducing the deficit. Had he accomplished any two of these big issues, then everyone would be griping that he had 2 years and didn't do the other 3. So yes, I'm a gripper about not getting ACA repealed, but along with his 2 big accomplishments that he promised, he also accomplished a small step in dismantling ACA with the individual mandate gone. Then other smaller but important promises kept and accomplished, like moving the embassy to Jerusalem and increasing health care options for the vets. And considering the Anti-American Democrat, deep state Republican, and globalist obstruction that is working against Trump and the best interest of our country, along with the Anti-American media manipulating public opinion by lying and pounding on false moral outrage, he's done a pretty damn good job and accomplished a hell of a lot in those measly 2 years.



    So 2 years? Please, lets be realistic. Certainly no one on this forum expected that any president up against all this obstruction with so many large issues to take on could have accomplished it all in those ever so "lenghty?" 2 years. Sorry, but when I hear, he had 2 year and ... wasn't done, it just sounds asinine.

    Oh, and I almost forgot, "dismantling ISIS". That's a biggy.
    *Pulled out of Iran deal. Promise kept!
    *Working on trade deals with success in some, while still working on others.
    *Got other countries to pay more of their share.
    nobody should expect a POTUS to do any of that. It is the job of congress

    Now let's see, we heard "repeal and replace" for 7 years. Well, when the GOP had full control, and 2 years....nothing

    Big Pharma, lawyers and insurance companies provide many jobs and speaking fees to reps/senators and their family and friends, they will never bite the hand which feeds them

    We heard about illegal aliens for years and again, ear-marking some $$$ for wall would be easy but the establishment GOP doesn't care

    It's all a big show and with the help of the media, we the people are distracted and hyped up to take sides, all the while all reps and Senators urinate all over us

    Why suddenly is it an issue? Well, it's because the Republicans don't want a wall built either! But now they can sit there and mouth off about wanting a wall and blame Democrats when it doesn't get done with a Democrat House.

    This is nothing but a charade. The Republicans KNEW they'd likely lose the House from the git-go. All they had to do is stall until they were no longer in control. And here we are.

    The same with getting rid of Obamacare. Two fucking years where they did virtually nothing.

    REPUBLICANS ARE THE REAL PROBLEM. VOTE THEM THE FUCK OUT OF OFFICE, AND WE CAN ALL RELAX ABOUT NOTHING GETTING DONE.

    I think, that WE, the people, should start forming "Vacation Caravans," and start marching on the..ahem..."Gated" communities of the Aristocracy.

    Carry backpacks and tents to go camp on their lawns.

    We should start with Martha's Vineyard.

    Of course....we should harbor no illusions about how the Aristocracy will treat American CITIZENS, if we, were to storm the walls of THEIR Fiefdom's......

    Jail, fines, and, perhaps a few justified beatings. Maybe even prison time for any upstart commoners who take it upon themselves to lead such a movement.....

    I never said Trump hasn't accomplished anything. I'm a big Trump supporter. However, I highlight that the Republicans had a golden opportunity with control of all 3 branches of government, and they failed to pass Trumps two signature items: Healthcare and the wall. Why is that? It's because they are NOT on board with these things.
    The November 2018 elections represent a lynchpin event, regardless of the outcome.

    By not giving Mexico the 10.6 billion in foreign aid the wall gets built and there is extra left over. Does anyone in DC have the ability to add and subtract?

    What do you call a basement full of Democrats?

    They'll just order their "Security", be it the police, or just hired goons, to start murdering those "protestors" en masse.

    OWS riots burn down middle class neighborhoods. They're not going allow anyone to upset the Serenity of Bill Gates and John Kerry's neighborhoods.

    If a few 10s of thousands of Americans need to die, that's just a start on the coming purges.


    Clandestine poison attacks that make it very difficult for the elites to ever enjoy a "meal", and force them to employ Tasters, would be far, far more effective.

    Arson attacks with exit doors chained shut, and staged car-car "Accidents" would be effective as well.

    We are already deep into the Civil-War with the Deep-State, even if most can't force themselves to admit it.

    In any case, 10,000 "Normal" Americans will die, for each elite in this conflict. But, if the Elites have selected you for extermination anyway, what difference does it make?

    The republicans are not all republicans. They used the name to get elected in certain districts. (a suspected bunch of shady lawyers with an agenda)
