    no Trump thread?

    As Trump's cabinet takes form it is being revealed as the most right wing in U.S. history, no exaggeration, and will be working in conjunction with a Republican Senate, House, and most likely soon a slanted Supreme Court, all under a unified agenda. There will be little recourse for even people with centrist politics. The left as a political entity here has already shifted pretty far to the right in the past few decades; it will now lurch even further right and may become unrecognizable as left at all. Which means that actual people on the actual left will become even more disenfranchised and unrepresented in a government and courts following a vector tacking hard to the right and likely once again using the same old legal mechanisms like drug laws, immigration, etc., to repress people. There was a pretty noticeable 'vibe' change between the Clinton 90's and the nationalistic, 'proud to be an American' Bush 00's, and Trump's cabinet is already far to the right of Bush's.

    2017, the year Idiocracy came true.

    It's been difficult to avoid knee jerk reactions, but I feel we're being cornered with this unreal agenda. It seems like the world is in a transition period and the optimist in me see's this as a breaking point for the old world to die and hope the intelligence and stamina of the new world can bring a bit more light into this dark place.

    More to come....

    I was going to start one and call it "we've got a bigger problem now."

    There is no aspect of this administration that has any precedent in U.S. history. There's obviously a lot to say about it, it's hard to know where to start.

    I know basically every issue we ever cared about is at stake, but what's happening in the south China sea could literally kill us all. Not a lot of attention being paid to that one....

    It's unbelievable. We follow it as a soap: what will he come up with next? But it's not fiction. It's real. People have voted for this. People have chosen to be governed like that. Un-be-liev-able.

    well...if the actual counted votes mean anything. he was not elected by the people but by the gov't itself. democracy has always been a lie.
    it's always been this way they just don't feel the need to hide their true intentions anymore!....

    imo...the old plan remains. stay vigilante. stand up for people when you see them in need and do as much as you can to
    help feed and look after other people. if we all adopt this life fascism can never even take root...

    I always feels there's a larger picture to it all. Not in a tin foil hat way, but them pulling the wool over the publics eyes by distraction or some stupid ruse.

    But they didn't vote to be governed like this. They voted for change and they were conned. You have to understand that people here have been slowly losing everything over the past 30 years, and when they didn't benefit from the most recent economic rebound, they were so desperate to believe someone could help them. These are people who love the constitution, so I don't think they are going to be happy to see someone dismantle the system of checks and balances while robbing them blind of what little they have left.

    Maybe Trump really WILL end up uniting the country!
