    Absolutely. Imagine what he could have accomplished with a modicum of support and not having to deal with with false impeachment, Russian collusion, etc. What he has accomplished is kind of amazing.

    Again - he said we’d leave NATO IF NATO countries didn’t meet their financial obligations, the other NATO nations ponied up and did meet their obligations due to this threat. Promise kept

    Trump is building new barriers, and increased fees and tariffs on Mexico - So, we are getting two walls for the price of one - Promise kept.

    Another falsehood from you. He has several great proposals but congress won’t budge - Promise kept in the fact that he has tried.
    And AGAIN, he destroyed the :dog: legacy and ambitions. I take that as a partial victory.

    You’re goin to disagree because you are being intentionally obtuse. It comes across as immature, and annoying.

    Unlike what left leaning individuals like yourself think, Trump is NOT a dictator, he doesn’t rule by fiat. He must work within the frame work of the constitution, the thing you all want to destroy, and have cooperation from the little napoleons in Congress.

    geez, leftist have so destroyed education, I have to give civics lessons in a gun forum.

    I don't protest like the commies but I think you're lost on the meaning of my post. Not worth the effort to clarify it to the likes of you.

    Good point because Trump should UNDERSTAND how our THREE branches works BEFORE he made those promises. If he did, he would not have made those promises.

    HRC was not president. That alone makes the Trump Presidency a victory. Everything else is gravy.

    Voted for President Trump two days ago.

    Maybe spend some time studying what socialism really is and what it leads to. I agree that those are big social programs leaning in that direction, and these programs are failures, but our system is not socialism...yet. President Trump has tried to spark the private sector of the economy and free the economic system up some. Things will only veer more towards real socialism and the inevitable attendant tyranny that follows if "we" don't stand in the way of the left. We see some of it already with the governors' reactions to the Wuhan flu and the BLM/Antifa "systemic racism" canard. It's a constant battle when people are told by the politicians, who are taking individual wealth to buy votes, that they can "rely on government." Allowing the leftist statists to gain power is absolutely the wrong move here regardless of one's personal animus toward President Trump. That is what must not happen. That is our duty as citizens.

    Yeah...no candidate ever says they will do something and then gets stifled by congress. So...your only viable choices are Harris/Biden, Trump/Pence, or lay on the floor kicking and screaming like a child and waste your only opportunity to act with the power you have been given to choose.

    Blatantly false dichotomy.

    Fighting for what's right is never wrong. If the Democrats win, Harris will eventually become President! She will force the socialist issue and we will go to war. I hope it never comes to that but I'm a realist!

    If the dems lose, will all the rioting, violence and exposing the dems for what they really are be worth it?

    So... by that logic no campaign should ever list a plan or make a promise ever. As much as I would love all politicians to actually tell the truth, you might as well go tell the sky to be purple for all the good that will do you.

    Our system is not pure capitalist, either. It is a hybrid of capitalist and socialist. Our military, USPS, police/fire departments, public schools, interstates, public libraries, community colleges, national parks, water, sewage, and waste management are ALL socialist.

    We have taken the best of capitalism and SOCIALISM to make this country sustainable.

    R.B. you know those were real goals and you know he accomplished a lot. You also know he attempted to accomplish every one against great resistance.

    Trump’s first term was successful by most measures. Impeachment and Covid were not in his playbook at the outset, and both were huge energy and focus drains that hobbled his Presidency.

    Trump ain’t pretty to watch, but he is a worker and a fighter for the right goals and the right reasons. He has earned another shot.

    Sure. I never stated "we"were purely capitalist, although I'm not sure what the best of SOCIALISM means? Just because the government supplies something doesn't make our system socialism. There's much more to it than that. Like I said, look at it and you'll see that there's little more to it than that. Sweden, for example, is not a socialist economic/political system...they make their money through capitalism practiced by private corporations.
