I'm torn if I should even reply to this, but I would like to hope a civil conversation can be had. After all, I do believe we are on the same side. I just don't like to be labeled a "liberal" or "you sound like the MSM" when I present issues that I (or others here) have with the current POTUS. God knows, I had lots of issues with the previous POTUS and I wasn't silent then either. Questioning authority (no matter who is in charge) is what we should ALL be doing. I won't blindly accept everything Trump does just b/c he carries the Republican label. Yeah, I'm not impressed with that b/c it doesn't seem to mean a heck of a lot anymore. However, even if he accomplishes nothing, I think we are FAR better off than if the Dems took office b/c they would have accomplished something....but nothing good for sure. I was thrilled with his SC appointment so that is a big win in my book. Hopefully he gets another chance to put one on the board. As far as your post above, I do question some of it.I love how the libs and the MSM keep proving themselves to be fools.
Trump is going to destroy the economy! Stock market through the roof.
Trump is Racist! 99.99% drop in race bating the second he is sworn in.
Trump will kill job growth! Lowest unemployment is Dec 2000.
Trump will ruin independent journalism! Fake news being outed every day.
Trump will attack the LGBTQ community! Crickets... Crickets... Crickets...
Trump will bring about Nuclear war! Strongest foreign relations in decades.
Trump sends out mean tweets!
I could go on and on and on. But it does not matter because liberals have never concerned themselves with truth, facts or reality. No matter how incredible of POTUS he is and continues to be they will just find something new to be scared of or pretend to be offended by.
Trump and the economy - I would be careful of chalking that up to a win just yet. He hasn't even completed his first year, and although so far, so good.....we all know that those numbers could turn in a heartbeat. The house of cards known as our economy has to come tumbling down sometime.
Trump and unemployment. I've heard that some of those numbers can likely be attributed to the hurricanes. But even if that's not the case, I didn't put much confidence in those numbers even when the other POTUS was in office. They are manipulated numbers that mean zero to me b/c as far as I'm concerned it doesn't measure ACTUAL unemployment. I know what the market is like in my area and when people were crying that they couldn't find a job, there were "help wanted" signs everywhere here. The problem was that nobody wanted to work and still don't. Most business owners around here say they're biggest problem is finding motivated employees. But I digress.....I think if you cut the easy gov't handout money, the REAL unemployment rate would be close to 0, and tax revenue would see a significant bump. If he gets his tax plan through.....I think that job growth will certainly see a spike then. I'm rooting for him!
Trump and the fake news. I think he is likely just as guilty as the MSM in bending the truth. I don't know that he actually "outs" or dis-proves fake news as much as just saying it's fake news. Many times he doesn't provide any more "proof" of his claims than they do of theirs. I don't look at either of them through rose colored glasses and take everything with a grain of salt. I don't watch MSM (well, sometimes just to laugh). Otherwise I get my information from various online sources and trust local news outlets much more than national news. But, as said, I believe nothing as being 100% truthful and also consider the source.
Trump and war. Yeah, I don't know about the strongest foreign relations in decades. Maybe, possibly, with some allies but I highly doubt that applies to other nations. I guess that all depends on WHO you ask. Even if he has better relations with some of our allies and maybe even some of our enemies....he has still PO'd some others. I'm still not sure how all of that is going to shake out, but I know I don't have all the information I need to make an informed decision about it. There's just so much there that we are not being told. I do know that I am nervous about the possibility of a war that could quickly escalate out of control. I'm certainly not getting that feeling by watching the MSM since from the little bit I do watch it seems they are more interested in Matt Lauer than Little Fat Man. I know there's a lot of work to do to try and gain the political power back that Obama squandered away. I'm hoping he can make progress there and I certainly hope he can keep us safe. That said, I am quite well aware that national safety comes at a price and am concerned about the potential for war. Again, I wouldn't put that in his win column to prematurely.....it ain't over yet!
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm definitely not liberal, I'm definitely not anti american and I'm definitely not uttering MSM garbage. I'm simply not going to give POTUS a pass on everything just b/c I voted for him. I just can't imagine not being able to find any fault with him. He's not perfect and I certainly knew that early on. Why is holding him to a high standard and questioning how he does things considered liberal? That just doesn't make much sense to me.
