    No experience. They were afraid because Obama had no experience.

    Remember when Obama went to the GOP retreat?

    Obama Goes To GOP Lions' Den -- And Mauls The Lions

    I remember the worst things said about Obama was that someone yelled out liar at a congressional speech.
    That his was born in Kenya.
    That Republicans prayed for his death.
    Called him a tar baby and uppity.

    And now?

    Trump not only has no experience, he has no knowledge.



    We are watching the unraveling of a presidency. A thin skinned narcissist who sued someone for suggesting his father was an orangutan.
    He has isolated the United States and now, even Republicans are suggesting he needs daycare.

    That's the reality. That's who our president is. Republicans have trashed Democrats for decades and now, look at what we have.

    The question is, "Will the country manage to keep the damage to a minimum?"

    God, I hope not!

    I hired him to blow up the leftist regime in Washington, to close down the elitist political class, and give voice to the American people.

    He's doing just fine .... sorry, you don't like it.

    I don't expect you to recognize the majority of Americans .... you hide from them, you take great delight in criticizing them. the left has been deaf to mainstream America for the last 50 years. How's that election thing working out for you? You know ---- the one you lost.

    To idiots like deantard, Americans that respect their own flag and stand during the national anthem are “Nazis”. But masked thugs that intimidate those that don’t agree with them, burn US flags at protests, kneel during the anthem, and support Islamic fascism are considered to be “patriotic”.

    I remember they were correct.

    Obama Goes To GOP Lions’ Den — And Mauls The Lions

    The voters were impressed. So impressed that 277 days later, they gave the Republican 63 new House seats.

    You are so wrong.
    Under Obama and the Democrats, millions of Americans got healthcare that never had it before.
    Women, who are in the majority, got equal pay for equal work.
    Credit card reform was passed.
    Student loans were taken away from banks who were making 6 billion a year off of it and that money was freed up for students.
    The Democrats worked to make education available for people who lost their jobs when 87% of lost manufacturing jobs were automated.
    The list goes on and on.

    Republicans want to end healthcare and take that money and give tax breaks to billionaires.

    We know these things as facts. Republicans have done a good job playing on race and fear. But it's the Republicans America has to be scared of and Trump proves it.

    Feel so sad for the millions of Americans in Puerto Rico.

    What would America look like if Trump did managed to do all that? What would be different? Serious question.

    When did Obama do that? How?

    What would be different?

    Big money would no longer control the government, because the government would be controlled by the citizenry (pretty hard to buy off 350 million people). Duplication and redundancy would be greatly reduced. The people would be back in charge - no longer would issues be decided by a select few (most unelected) who act in their own selfish interests, rather than the best interests, as defined by the American people.

    Those actions delineated in the Constitution as being the province of the Federal government would be centralized. All others would be devolved to the States. There would no longer be larger constituencies ramming their standards and methodologies down the throat of those who don't believe in them. There, by necessity, would be a much stricter compliance with the content, and intent, of the Constitution.

    There would be a loosening of the death grip the Federal government exerts on your daily life - instead, that power would devolve back to where it was originally intended - the States. Funding for the federal bureaucracy would also be devolved back to the States. Instead of having 1 massive government entity trying to solve issues, we would have 50 creative incubators. Fifty states would be defining healthcare plans the way THEIR citizens want it defined, rather than some one-size-fits-all band-aid decided by someone who is not invested in the answer (other than to satisfy big donors).

    States would make laws that THEIR citizens want. Want to ban guns in Connecticut? Go ahead - just don't mess with guns in New Mexico. Want to eliminate high capacity clips in California? Do it - just don't mess with guns in Texas. Want to legalize marijuana in Massachusetts? Right on - just don't try to bring that garbage into Montana. Ready for this one? Want centralized health care in Oregon? Sign it up - just don't mess with healthcare in Louisiana. Let 50 states try their best - let them look at what the other 49 are doing. Pick the best, reject the rest.

    Schools would be more responsive to the people paying for them - and would be more in line with local attitudes. The list goes on and on ---- the federal government has been on a 75 year power grab. This may be the last chance to limit the power of centralized government.

    Return the federal government to its assigned functions - let the judiciary protect the rights of all people (they are the check and balance on the states). Let the rest of the government do their job - deliver the mail and provide for the common defense.

    That's what would happen - A significantly weakened centralization of power in the federal government, increased control and responsibility at the state and local level, greatly increased citizen influence on their governments, and a citizenry given their Creator-endowed rights to self determination, self reliance, and self improvement.
