    The constant bashing of him is actually starting to make me back him more than ever.
    The media and Clinton supporters have done far worse damage than he's managed so far

    Yes, its not very democratic what all the media and clinton supporters and "celebrities" have been doing.
    He won, they lost - get over it.
    Its a democracy.
    They will have another chance in 4 years.

    The news media should just report on the news , not be so one sided.

    Its a Federal Republic. Due to how it is set up, the President is not selected by popular vote. If they were, you'd have President Clinton.

    FTFY

    Not saying it's a bad system of government by the way. It just isn't the same as a Westminster democracy, as the President is not selected by popular vote.

    I see you don't agree with the right to protest

    In case you weren't aware, it's an important part of a Western Democracy.

    Of course, the wretched righties will always crush dissent, it'll be brown shirts and a knock on the door at 3am next.

    I feel like many New Zealanders did when we got rid of Labour and Helen Clark's oppressive Nanny state.
    A big weight of pc (ha ha that's a pun) crap lifted off our backs.

    The only policy of his I don't like is a possible move to halt abortions.

    The other thing is that he may struggle to get some of his policies actually implemented.
    Eg Calexit (wow) , Judges on immigration etc.
    My sentiments exactly - especially the reference to Clark.
    Just wish he'd get off Twitter coz he's making a dick of himself with that.

    Why?? Let's see him for what he really is - a prick!!!
    I worked for everything I have. Most successful people have done the same thing.
    No, you aren't "entitled" to it. Too damn bad, Get it the way I did.
    WORK FOR IT.

    Clinton, Trump
    Left, right
    democrat/republican
    Either way would not make much actual difference to the Average US worker

    a country so far in debt its teetering on a cliff edge , printing money instead of earning from exports
    Average family just 2 paychecks away from being homeless
    trying to prop up industries that cant compete with international labor rates
    trying to prop up industries that will just go fully automated & not need local labor

    Perhaps the best way , for any country, is only immigrants with similar beliefs and religion .
    It would be great if we all could just get along, but in the real world it often doesnt happen . If the migrants have no respect for those who dont follow their beliefs , then its a problem waiting to surface .
