    American Politics Thread - Trump Presidency


    The election is over, so a new thread is needed for a new era.

    There's a lot to consider about the days ahead (Supreme Court, Cabinet appointments, the Senate, the House etc.) so you can discuss it all here.

    Yeah, there is no elitist attitude at all.

    Lol. I mean, California is a great state, but how things turn out in the recently flipped red states and the purple states will be intriguing. Well, intriguing is one word for it.

    Actually, speaking of California @Basil, what do you think of the 2018 Governor's election? Jerry Brown is a giant, but unfortunately his era is almost over. I think Gavin Newsom is considered the front runner there.

    Still the Hero.

    Just scared because you live in a purple state which means Trump will have a very large say in how things work domestically there

    The reason Clinton has such a huge lead in the popular vote is California. Dems hold a super majority here, we just passed a good amount of pretty liberal bills (no guns with mags over 10, weed, no plastic bags or whatever, more money to schools, and more to health care with a higher tax on cigs) We are almost as liberal as Canada.


    Gavin Newsom is a good looking, thoughtful, good person, with a solid record of being liberal on social issues. He wins California by a landslide.

    It also helps he was mayor of San Fran, and literally ordered the marriage offices to sign off on gay people's marriage license even back in 2005. Basil approves of this man, and I think people like him better than they do Jerry Brown.

    actually blue and swing States probably have it the worst with the protests, secessions and all.

    Personally my state is red, but if my majority black town who believed Trump is going to put them all in cages haven't gone so far as to riot yet I doubt I have too much to worry about.

    I definitely wouldn't want to be New York or Oregon though

    Yeah, it's probably one of those Democrat standbys that are unlikely to be swayed by the current GOP. Same with New York. I like California.

    Yeah, talk about handsome politicians. Trudeau has nothing on him. And it's good to know he's the front runner. I know he was considering a Senate run, but he and Harris are friends and Governorship suits him better than the Senate considering his time as Lieutenant Governor and Mayor. More executive experience than legislative. He's the future, Jerry Brown can pass the torch safely.

    Still the Hero.

    The protests honestly aren't that big of a deal anymore. Now it is just policy. I am happy I guess Trump wants to not do big trade deals, but the rest of his policy's will hurt the counties education, welfare, health care, pretty much everything, however because a lot of it is state run, very blue states won't be effected much by his domestic policy.

    Honestly, even our republicans would be independents in other states. Our dems for the most part are actually pretty liberal by american standards.

    He's honestly more than likely going to run for president after being governor

    where I live, education couldn't get worse if they tried, too many ppl are on welfare anyway, and apparently healthcare with Obama care was about to be jacked up anyway soooo yeah I am hoping for a pretty lateral four years at the least. If he manages to screw it up more than it already is I would be impressed tbh

    I can't believe that the Democrats still haven't learned their lesson after the most embarrassing defeat ever. They're never going to get control over all the branches of government if they continue to be corporatists.
