Let's see
Saying anything positive about a political candidate can get you assaulted or fired. And you have no legal recourse. Loss of free speech and equal protection under the law.
Being assaulted for you skin color is acceptable.
You are no longer innocent until proven guilty.
That is already happening

Firearms- what firearms. Ammo will be taxed heavily, Semi autos will require a tax stamp - at best.
The Supreme court will be expanded so Democrats have a perpetual majority. This eliminates the third branch of government and turns it into a political body.

Democrats grant statehood to Puerto Rico giving them two more senate seats.

Democrats provide a pass to citizenship and grant voting rights to the 50 million illegals currently in this country. No more two party system

No criminal posts bail ever again. No more jails. Except for dissidents

Free college, healthcare, and minimum wage hikes drive up taxes and drive out business and business investment. Massive inflation destroys the value of the dollar.

U.N troops are ordered in to pacify the cities -(Republican).

Militatary is once again gutted - had no ammo when Trump came in.

More foreign wars.

Elimination of tariffs on China

Sell China California to pay down our debt

That's probably the bright side
Have you checked the Democrat's web site to see what they want to do ?

I forgot the wealth tax. An additional yearly tax on everything you own. Private property is not allowed in communist/socialist societies. The idea that taxes will only be on people making 400k and above is absurd. There is not enough people in that category to pay for what they are giving away. Even if you taxed them 100 percent. And don't expect to inherit of pass down you money. Your heirs didn't earn that.
How can you be so naive ?

Most people don’t understand how little the POTUS really means in their daily lives.

More important, by far, are your mayors and city council, county supervisors, state senators, and governors.

It’s local politics that really hit home.
What? This isn’t the 19th century. The executive branch yields a tremendous amount of power. Have you ever heard of DACA?

...yet somehow, magically, jobs were created, gas got cheaper, black people's unemployment decreased during the time Trump has been Prez.
...also with savings from my payroll tax cuts I have a new truck, trailer and more salary from my small business. Trump years have been good so far, and my clientele started buying more services right when Trump took over.

If only there were that few of them here....plus, I don't think you included crap such as a big tax on each round of ammo (heavy taxes discourage purchase so you don't have to outlaw it, like with cigs), and allowing the U.N. to impose its international gun control laws on the USA's sovereignty. If the Left was allowed to do everything it has said it would do, Canada would start looking like The Land of Freedom in comparison.

If history follows:
The new party disarms everyone. Death squads are sent out against political opposition and useful idiots. Like minded or easily identifiable people (skin color) will band together for mutual protection. Civil war and famine. Argentina is the most recent example.
But it can't happen here
Just cause some of it is.
And the Democrats will not stop if defeated in the election, so, this is your future.
I'll be dead or living abroad

Well, I get what your saying, but the lives of 95% of the people didn't change a bit.
So Obamacare only changed things for 5% of the population?

Cheaper gas is due to a posting contest between OPEC, Saudi Arabia, and Russia.
So it had nothing to do with the USA becoming a net exporter instead of importer?

Regarding Obama and the 5%, yeah, over time, that's all it affected. The Democrats would like you to think it's higher,but not much, if anything, changed for us here in Iowa.

And yes, we became a net exporter, because we stayed out of the oil wars that the others were playing. They started screwing with availability and subsidies, and the rest of the world market found a reliable resource in the USA.

The media and partisanship have most people convinced that the president weilds the kind of power that the kings of the middle ages enjoyed.

The fact is that the executive office is extremely limited in its use of power over the citizenship. Local laws and ordinances hold far more sway in the average daily life than the federal exec.

That was the framers intent, and its worked quite well thanks to their profound understanding.

I appreciate the non-hostile response (for a change). Thanks.

I'll just say that I'm not a single issue voter re: 2nd Amendment. Also, I'm thinking longer term than Biden/Harris. Lastly, I believe in checks and balances and separation of powers (when we have an executive branch that doesn't do everything in its power to trample them ... and the last two Republican administrations have been the most hostile to said separation of power ... Patriot Act anybody??) to mitigate the issues surrounding "gun control".
There will be no long term if Harris/Biden win. None.

We already have fires in Kalifornia, thanks to arsonists, lightning, and a gender reveal party that incorporated fireworks. Check.

Earthquake in Alaska today. Check.

Dead rising from the grave: Voting the Chicago Way resurrects them, at least gets them to vote "Dem." Check.

Human sacrifice: Planned Parenthood, check.

Dogs and cats living together: We already have weirder cohabitation than that going on. Think NAMBLA, the weirdos you see at the mostly peaceful riots, and what you see on Dr. Phil or Jerry Springer. Check.

Mass hysteria: Already happened on Election Day 2016, and is about to recur next month. Check.
You win the internet today!

Then I may look into moving to Iowa, because Obama as POTUS made a significant change in my insurance costs. So that makes me a 5%-er, if 95% of Americans saw no change in that dept.

And yes, we became a net exporter, because we stayed out of the oil wars that the others were playing. They started screwing with availability and subsidies, and the rest of the world market found a reliable resource in the USA.
I still find myself believing that there was a connection between the change from Import-dependent to Independent, and us getting a different President.

single issue voter here .PRO-LIFE seems to take care of all the rest of the issues.

Except for that other issue: The right to defend the innocent from those who want to violently attack the innocent.

It's said that without the 2nd Amendment, there is no 1st Amendment. If there were no 1st Amendment, how could we be free to make a case for a right to life of the unborn? Even WITH a 1A, it's hard to get the message out to the masses, since the mainstream media (including the social media) will censor/delete/ban such speech, and no one will see it. Imagine getting the citizenry educated about fetology without a 1st Amendment.

As far as government health care goes, it was darned expensive from the very get go that not many jumped on the bandwagon. While some were certainly impacted, most employers didn’t drop their health plans.

As far as petro goes, there’s this:

https://www.usatoday.com/money/

While I’m sure the president would be pleased to take the credit for lower gas prices, the facts are more aligned with things outside his influence.

As far as whether we’re importers or exporters, it really doesn’t affect that high of a percentage of Americans. To most of us beer swilling idiots, it’s not something that really impacts our daily lives.

Oh, my insurer just increased premiums and made it even more darned expensive. They even stated that it due to Obamacare. Am I really in that tiny 5%?

As far as petro goes, there’s this:

In other news, USA Today just announced that for the first time in their history, they were endorsing a candidate, and his name just happens to be Joseph "Big Guy" Biden.

While I’m sure the president would be pleased to take the credit for lower gas prices, the facts are more aligned with things outside his influence.
So, just a coincidence, then. How lucky is that?

Obama tried to achieve his stated goal of making gas as expensive as possible, like $8 a gallon or more, because if people couldn't afford to drive fossil-fueled (not "ISIL-fueled") cars, we could stop global warming.

When I can buy gas for $2.30 a gallon instead of $4 a gallon, that saves me a few thousand dollars PER YEAR, every year.

That's like...well, it's like having my insuring premiums reduced by $2400! So that IS something that impacts my life, every day. What if under one POTUS beer cost you $2000 more per year than it would under a different POTUS? Not a big deal?

Alright, so USA Today isn’t your cup of tea. So then there’s this:

Look, I’ve already voted for Trump, and I hope he can pull it off. So if you’re campaigning, you’re wasting time on the wrong guy.

But I’m also not afraid to call a spade a spade.

Looking at our politicians with rose colored glasses can get us in big trouble, fast. The media isn’t doing its job of true fact checking, which leads us to not believe anything we read. That leaves it up to us to figure it out on our own.

So all I’m saying is, I’m all good giving the guy credit for all he’s achieved. But let’s give him credit for what he really has done, not for what he hasn’t.

The facts are that the actions of any president can be erased at the stroke of a pen with few lingering effects.

I’m betting that your HOA has more and longer lasting impact on the life of any given family than that of the POTUS.
