Will America Learn From Electing Trump

Post by SeamusMcCool » Thu Dec 29, 2016 3:37 pm

As the inauguration parade goose steps to Capitol Hill I ponder the future of my beloved American cousins.

Are Americans capable of learning from the obvious mistake of electing Donald Trump as their President? Will they finally learn to get over themselves in the fly over States and quit crying their little bitch tears over losing the Civil War and their precious Jim Crow laws?

Will this bring about the end of the Tea Party asshattery and fucktards like so many we seem to have on here and bring about a new and improved Republican party? Or will it split into two and there will be 3 major party candidates running in 2020?

America didn't "learn" from electing W. Instead, they one upped themselves.

There won't be three major parties.

That's true.

You don't think there's a possibility that Trump and his "people" could so alienate the moderate Republicans that they might split? I'm assuming you're thinking of the very real problem of then quite possibly giving every Presidential election to a Dem candidate for the foreseeable future?

I suppose another move would be to see if Trump crashes and burns and then just conduct a purging of the party in 2020.

I think Trump can and probably will alienate everyone but the 25% of True Believers. The GOP mainstream will maintain some plausible deniability like they did with W. Of course, none of this will affect the GOP's electoral choices in the future. We aren't talking about rational people here.

It is probably unfortunate that the Dems were able to put ACA through, but now that it is in place, it will take years to replace it.
Personally, it won't likely affect me, but it will affect millions.

You would probably be surprised by the number of benefits you get Jim. Most people are. Screening tests, unlimited coverage, adult offspring coverage, all the black lung benefits, no pre-existing illness problems. There are more and while some do not affect you-now-they probably affect relatives and friends.

Well, right now it looks like the lesson is that you can elect a pretend-populist in order to enact the most extreme policy options of the far right end of the Republican party, policies which, had they been promoted during the election, would have meant a sure loss.

maybe, in time, America will learn a lesson from electing this stupid blowhard non book reading egotist.

After all, if the Germans can learn to be non milatarists after having been in war after war, and loosing the last two wars,
maybe, after enough idiots have been in the Casa Blanca, America will learn to elect intelligent, rational people.

Yah, I'll agree with this as well.

I'm glad I'm a bystander and it will be really interesting to see how he acts as a President and whether it's any different than how he is acting now. And if it matters or not. He may continue to act like a complete buffoon but it's impossible to say whether that will actually translate into something terrible for America or not.

Canada had Rob Ford as the Mayor of Toronto, and other than turning Toronto into a bit of a laughingstock and providing lots of material for late night tv comedians and the media, he didn't totally screw up Toronto in ways that couldn't be fixed.

Some day a whole year will pass by without some Canadian fucktard with a flag on his backpack asking me when America will finally (finally) see the error of their cro magnon ways and go over to the sensitive, sincero Ian and Sylvia dark side.

The answer remains:

Never.

Suck it, losers.

It's true.

And being Canadian means being a sad sack wallflower who's perenially waiting in vain to hear it.

Why? What motivates them? It's like another planet.

Do American want to sternly upbraid Canadians? It probably never even happened once.

What borderline fascists/right wingers dont seem to get is that pretty much every positive change that has happened in the world has been due to liberal and enlightened viewpoints becoming mainstream.

Racism/sexism/homophobia are all being constantly confronted and condemned by liberal thinking. This.is.a.good.thing. I dont believe even the Trump supporters here can deny that. You may be fascist but you cant be that stupid. This is what it comes down to people. The worlds never had it so good. Trump is symbolic of a step backwards in human evolution. We all lose by his win.
