Speak for yourself!

Ha, ha...the political debate in the USA has been very strange since the early 1990's, and they finally got their kind of guy elected. I haven't noticed anything change, just flip-flopping.

This isn't even that important or world-changing of an issue. This is an era of instant information and heightened self-importance. I live in a very rural area, and always will, so the government really doesn't have too much of an impact on my life and surroundings. It just doesn't matter to me.

But it doesn't mean I don't love to troll the ever-living piss out of the butthurt Clinton supporters on my Facebook feed. :lol:

I love you Gilmour Girl. Thanks for expressing what many Americans think, but have been afraid to say; i.e. the silent majority. That's why Trump got elected. The UK naysayers that don't live in our country and seem to feel the need to judge should reflect on their own poor choices; i.e. Tony Blair. What an embarrassment.

Sorry, this is going to unleash my inner sh*tposter. Here we go.
Back when I lived in Australia, American politics meant blank-all to us. We had our own problems with douchy PMs down under, America be hanged. When we moved to Canada in 2010, I began to learn more about American politics simply by proxy. Until I moved up here, I only cared that Obama had cut NASA's budget. Then, in the 2016 election the whole palaver exploded in my face, and this is how I see it from the outside looking in.
I hated both of them, to tell the truth. Whilst it is evident that Trump seems to have accomplished not really very much and is really kind of a douchebag, Clinton was pretty corrupt. I can understand why people voted for Trump, but it is becoming pretty clear he doesn't really know what he is doing. The endless whining about him needs to stop though. Yes, I hate him. Yes, he's a douche. Yes, he has some serious issues in his administration that cannot be ignored, and yes there is a possibility that he could declare war over something dumb. BUT... until we have any firm and damning evidence that he has [blank]ed up in a serious way that could have him removed from power, he is the president of the United States. Riding the trigger train and whining about how he walks like my brother is not going to solve anything.
This whole race is proof that there needs to be more limitation as to who the hell can run for President in that country anyhow. In office we have a complete idiot who has some serious allegations following him (which do need to be looked into, by the way), and on the other side we had someone who was under investigation from the FBI. In a perfect world neither of them would be sitting in that office right now.
And you're all right about the 'libtards'. Not every liberal is a 'libtard', but the overwhelming number of them are. Case in point, the Women's March Against Trump. What the [blank] did that accomplish, exactly? How does wandering up and down a road dressed like your own genitalia solve anything? Oh! Hold a moment! It doesn't! Woah! And then the protests against his own election? That's a bunch of liberals protesting democracy! That's so hypocritical I look morally perfect!
Now, I am a Traditional Catholic, and I hate him. Why? Whilst some of his policies line up with my beliefs, what I feel I cannot ignore is that once he refered to one of the most holy parts of the church as 'the little cracker' (jerk...) and the fact that he is now trying to get all this money poured into the army, a raise it obviously does not need. And to get that money, he's slicing the main source of income for programs that make sure those who are less fortunate can continue to be fed. I do not like that one bit.
I am dead certain that Lincoln was rolling in his grave the whole election campaign, seeing two dumbasses going at each other not with policy but with generally personal attacks. The fact that Trump has continued to use this sort of rhetoric (albeit somewhat toned down) is not a good sign I don't think. However, if we want to continue to respect democracy, then we leave him be until he does something that threatens the democratic way or until proof of these allegations of sexual assault surface. Until then, all Americans, from an Australian living in Canada and therefore an outsider... please just shut it.
(Personal note: I'm peeved that Trump is cutting NASA's budget even further and somehow expecting them to be able to land people on Mars by the 2020s. Come on man.)

Genuine we could have feckin Boris as Prime Minister inside a matter of months, given certain turns of occasions, all things considered, Trump is in his very own class. I would state those of us looking in from outside the USA are starting to get extremely stressed that this person could wind up driving the most effective nation on the planet, and where the damnation would that take us?

Welcome to the forum Emily!
I don't think we'll have Boris as PM ever. But still think we'll have an emergency government with someone else!
But if Boris says Assad must suffer for chemical attacks, not actually proven to be by Assad, then his silence on Israel using phosphorus recently will be just as ignored as Trump is also ignoring what Israel was doing on the stage.
No matter who the name or the hype, in the end they agree to get people killed. The really unfortunate get their own people murdered.
And back to Pink Floyd isn't that all in the end was a oneness?

You actually just reminded me of the stories of Trump supporters leaving Roger Waters concerts en masse within minutes of him starting a concert. That really amused me, because I don't know what the hell they were expecting. Waters voiced his total and utter disdain towards both of the candidates in 2016 (with reasons that I agree on a lot), so it seems natural that his shows are going to reflect his supreme annoyance with politics in America. Just listen to his latest album. The sample at the beginning of the title track could have very well been a Clinton quote, had she won.
On the subject of Boris... I don't know much about British politics. I tuned out during the hysteria after Cameron resigned in light of the Brexit result. All I know is that I reckon you should find a way of voting in Lord Buckethead as PM - that would be much better.
