    Hi - what a great way to put it! And, I like that you don't slag those who don't share your POV.

    Just out of curiosity - what made it a success? I TRY to take the hyperbole of his bombastic personality out of it - but struggle. Yup, I get the deal w/ Israel, not starting a war, some strong animal protection are all solid 'wins' in his favor.

    The economy was a bought thing w/ tax cuts that can't be afforded, didn't fix ACA, border wall largely replaced stuff that was already there and needed replacing due to age, massive deficits during 'good times' - so to me, those things are not in his favor.

    A lot of shit in the Trump years, but for me, off the top of my head, the pluses.

    Reducing my tax burden

    Prevention of a progressive Supreme Court and also the appointment of a lot of conservative federal judges

    More support for Israel

    At least some form of a start on prison reform

    Short list, but there are some positives.

    I will add border and ICE activity as a success.

    Encouraging/deregulating the domestic production of oil and gas (i.e. energy independence).

    There's a lot of little things that maybe don't seem huge like NOT having the government suing the Little Sisters of the Poor for not offering contraception as part of health insurance like Obama did and Biden is likely to do.


    Trump being the most outspoken President in regards to the abortion issue was huge for me as well.

    His tougher stance on China and Iran was refreshing after having both regimes walk all over us for 8 years.
    RIP EVH 1955-2020

    US debt just clocked in at over $28Trillion; up +30% from when The Donald took office - during unprecedented economic growth. Someone tell me again how the GOP is about fiscal management?

    Nobody in DC is into fiscal management. The Keynesians have won. You know what the US dollar is? It's toliet paper. When the yield on the 10 yr hits a miniscule 1.6% and all the short term bonds are a decimal above 0% and the equities markets go into a panic you have serious problems. I bet the Federal Reserve is dumping billions daily into bond purchases to supress the yield and I believe that paper does not even count on the debt clock?

    A lot of those bonds are held by US government agencies.

    It's just circular money. Issue bonds, collect taxes, have taxes buy said bonds.

    Our economy is a house of cards based upon the USD being the world's new gold standard. It won't last forever.
