    The irony of President Trump is that he had liberals bemoaning the fact that he was the first president in decades to actually keep his campaign promises.
    How many prior administrations had claimed they supported the notion of moving the US Embassy to Israel to Jerusalem?
    Then, when Trump announced he would do it, there was all the "sky is falling" wailing of the liberals who knew Trump was going to get the "Arab Street" mad at us.

    When has the "Arab Street" NOT been mad at us?

I ended up voting against Hillary in the general election and I was actually quite surprise that Trump actually lived up to his word much better than the average politician.

When he ended up winning the nomination, I seriously considered abstaining. Even on the drive to the polling place and while standing in line, I was leaning in that direction, while praying for guidance. While praying, things came to mind: It mattered to me a *little* bit that Laura Ingraham liked Bad Orange Man; that Hannity assured BOM would govern as a conservative; that BOM rivals like Carson and even Cruz supported him. Frankly, it mattered more that the mainstream media, who had seemed thrilled with his candidacy most of the way, went ape-crap-poplectic when it became apparent he might actually win. And something that really got me was George Will and his ilk, who went beyond abstaining from voting for BOM and went as far as hoping for a Hillary landslide to basically teach us Great Unwashed a lesson. That showed me that he was just another elitist and "intellectual" who neither understood nor had any interest in regular people, nor in conservatism. I interpreted that rush of recollections as the answer to my prayer for guidance, voted for the Bad Orange Man, and have had zero regrets.

    The only way there will be earthly justice for the 2020 election shenanigans is if Bad Orange Man runs *and wins* in 2024.

    Yeah she's insurance against that.

    I edited my post above to make it clear I am speaking of creating a zombie AI like in Back to the Future! Reagan Headroom! Anything would be an improvement on Biden.

    Yes, I'm not sure that wasn't a typo.

    78% Of Republicans Want To See Trump Run For President In 2024

    Nearly one year after the 2020 presidential election, a majority of Americans (58 - 35 percent) say they do not want to see Donald Trump run for president in 2024, according to a Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pea-ack) University national poll of adults released today. Democrats say 94 - 4 percent and independents say 58 - 35 percent that they do not want to see Trump run.


    The more important percentage is from independents. Time for new candidates.

    Paul has more name recognition this time around.

    But his problem is that this current generation of voters (sorry to say) are too stupid to elect someone who isn't offering freebies. Trump's election was fueled by middle class frustration (IMO) but Paul doesn't deliver the same messages. He's about fiscal restraint and preserving the Constitution. Millennials will say "That's boring. What do I get out of it?"

    So, I have no hope for the immediate future of this country. Future generations will need to sort it out.
