Trump Will be President

Postby grzegorz on Mon Sep 12, 2016 1:43 pm

Hard to believe but I have been following election closely and for one thing I am convinced that cable news networks want him to win because their ratings have never been higher and secondly he can do no wrong, no matter what he says or does or has done his popularity keeps going up. This is the same momentum almost all previous presidents had with the exception of W. but he was selected by the Supreme court.

Well, I'll tell ya'll what I tell my students every election: Never depend on a President to change your life for the better. It's always up to you." I told them before Obama's election, and I say the same thing now. That doesn't mean that they should not vote. Rather, it means that there will still be a struggle, no matter who wins. In fact, the problem is that they will actually be waiting for the government to save them.

Actually, I've been telling them that it will be much better for them if they prepare for a Trump presidency. If he loses, they'll still be better off, whether Hillary or someone else wins. Iow, prepare for the disaster; don't depend on good weather ;)

How do we prepare for a Trump presidency? Some people have already cornered the market on castor oil and I don't look good in brown.

Hard to put into words but I believe the us vs. them theme is strong right now. Basically Trump has captured more imaginations of Americans than Clinton can. Clinton, to me, is a typical politician and unfortunately hasn't really sparked the type of enthusiasm that Trump and Bernie did.

How to prepare? #1 No fear. #2 If you are lucky enough to have a job, keep working :) If you have a refrigerator, food to fill it, and an internet connection, keep 'em. Now, afaik, he hasn't threatened to drop an nukes on US cities. Sorry I can't say the same for Europe. Yeah, we can legitimately fear that, but if it happens it's better to do as much living as one can.

Well, put it like this, the uneducated and poor will remain uneducated and poor even if Trump is elected.

It's true that Hillary is not a particularly exciting candidate. And, the argument is that anything and everything she's done means that she's unfit for the job, but nothing Trump does makes him unfit. However, the question is whether her lack of popularity will make people not vote for her. Hey, I didn't vote for her. But, I was against the Iraq war, and I liked what Obama said and represented. I think Hillary would consolidate her support if she said that things that Obama did, not the slogans, but the idea that there was only one US.

Anyway, I'm hoping that the day before election day the polls say it's a tie.

I look at the "Trump" as a 3rd party candidate.
If he wins should be interesting to see what happens

If he wins, I wonder if he will continue to investigate HC.

Shucks, he will investigate everyone he feels like; but, he won't release any of his own information.

Many women can't stand other women's success, so they will vote against Hillary and do everything to demonize her.

And yes, media loves Trump and help him to create a spectacle out of his campaign. The only way to reach good figures on Hillary is to ride on the hate wave.

Things are not looking good. I wish Sanders could have hold on a little bit longer. Maybe he could have a chance to win over Hillary?
...At least, women won't feel threatened by him... And he would probably stand a better chance against Trump.

On the other hand, I believe that media make a bigger weirdo out of Trump than I personally believe he is. US will be "ok" regardless the outcome of the election.
...And at least we have had the most entertaining election yet. ;D

Exactly the media is after her. Now they are saying that they are transparency issues with her campaign because the world should have known she was ill. Yet in the meanwhile Trump won't release his taxes or explain how he'll get Mexico to pay for the wall and no one cares.
