Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Grabbee;
Did I hurt your feelings so badly that you have to make up more brainless name-calling and insults so typical of Trump and his minions?

"so you hate half of America"

Na, not so much "hate" as simple contempt.
Half? No, not even close to half. After all, Hillary got MORE Americans to vote for her than Trump did. So that's a bit encouraging, although it does not speak well for democracy.
I guess its too much to ask, here in 21st century America, that we have a President who has enough personal integrity to NOT be enthusiastically backed by Nazis.
Your post (unless its brilliant sarcasm) reflects a perfect example of the type of individual I see as having voted FOR Trump. Now I can add Nazi to the list of "virtues" I associate with Trump voters.

As far as assawatcher... graduates of college never say, I went to HS then college, duh, but you didn't claim to graduate from either.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Tannim, you need to remember that the Constitution is not just made up of the 2nd and 4th Amendments. In Article II, Section 1 we are given the tools to right this wrong and we should use them while we can. Article II, Section 1 charges the Electors with voting the will of the people (1,152,000+ and counting for Hillary over Trump), and to eliminate unfit candidates. This is also restated in The Federalist Papers #68 where it makes the Electoral College the gatekeeper against demagoguery. Trump is a vulgarian at best and not the kind of national figure we should present to the world. At worst he is a con artist, racist, xenophobic mysoginist and a narcissistic sociopath to boot. But that's not the worst of it - the people he has chosen to advise him are worse than he is.

Don't wait to impeach this nutcase for his multiple conflicts of interest...then we get Pence and a theocracy. The time to act is now. Before the Electors vote. On December 19th.

It's also obvious, Tannim, that your primary news source has to be Breitbart and Alt-Right. Breitbart and Co have been sliming Hillary Clinton since she became First Lady - it is extremely profitable for them to do that. Who are you going to hate if the Clintons are gone? I'd say "try me", but you already do that.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Bremer,
Healthcare in the USA has failed in the "market-based" system, as evidenced by the staggering 14% of GDP we spend on healthcare--this is twice the amount spent by other developed nations. A study of healthcare economics is crucial, before opining on a subject . Give us your opinion , sure, but what are your opinions based on? Mine are based on university-level study of healthcare economics and 20 years of patient care and management.

Although this piece may not be pleasing to half of the Indy's readership, I'd like to commend the editorial staff at the Indy for having the courage for presenting the alternative view. You cannot have a real discussion on issues by putting up a wall to shut out those who might disagree with you.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Bremmer's fevered fantasy reveries notwithstanding.........
I grew up in Colorado Springs. I attended High School, College, and served in the Army. Ive been in countless locker rooms, lived in frat houses and Army barracks. My wife and I raised a son who is now a man. Ive known my share of right-wingers, left-wingers, and chauvinists, but in all my life I have NEVER encountered another man who's vileness, betrayed by nothing more than HIS OWN WORDS AND DEEDS, is anywhere close to Donald Trump's turpitude. A man who routinely demeans others, who's foul language and business dealings reflect a morally crippled mind, who dismisses the deep traditions of America as weakness or "political correctness", who threatens, bullies, and simply believes that his inherited wealth entitles him to freely lie, intimidate, insult, make wild accusations, defraud and actually assault others.
And I have NO reason to think any better of any man or woman who would knowingly cast a vote for such a degenerate. I grieve for our nation, apparently now inhabited by such hate-filled, fear-ridden, foul minded, or at best ignorant, individuals who believe that Trump's virtues in no way disqualified him from receiving their vote to be our beloved country's President.
If you voted for Trump, that's what I think of you.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

LMAO I'm sorry Tannim, but half of the nation are not the so-called 'deporables'. Half of Trump's followers are whom Hillary was referring to. Half the people who actually voted for him is roughly 30 million, or 10 percent of the nation. Hate Hillary if you like, but get your facts straight.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

"Trump has no intention of doing anything but fixing the broken system in Washington, which is why Americans elected him. In this way, Trump will endeavor to perform a full "revolution" of government and has no interest in evolutionary tactics."

The reality is that he will fail because he will not be able to get rid of the entrenched bureaucrats and programs and agencies they are in. He will not be able to clear the temple of the moneychangers.

A true revolution, Eli, would do by force what Trump will fail by administration. Republicans and Democrats still haven't figured out that power is but an illusion completely dependent on one's acceptance of it, and the aforementioned bureaucrats will simply not accept it.


"Hillary Clinton has spent her life fighting the fights that make me a Democrat: health care for children, religious tolerance, a living wage, good schools, equal rights for all Americans and preserving our environment."

Yeah, right. Keep believing that nonsense. Hillary has always been about herself and only herself, and if others benefit, it's a side effect, not an intent, except to garner votes.

"In this election it was easy to support Secretary Clinton on the issues. And the opportunity to elect an experienced, highly qualified woman as president was historic."

Not at all. Her issues were her ego, criminality, and her body count. 2113 federal felonies plus felony perjury can't all be wrong.

"But it is important to remember that Americans will not tolerate a Twittered-up leader who brags about abusing women, mocks people with disabilities, threatens immigrants, cozies up to oligarchs foreign and domestic, demonizes people because of their religion and governs as a "post truth" president."

It's also important to remember, Maday, that Americans will not tolerate a dishonest leader who tramples individual rights, dismisses half of the nation as "deplorables," stereotypes people without knowing them, and in general acts like an entitled queen when she and her comrades belong in prison.

Re: “Second Amendment’s hits, myths

The National Rifle Association was created in 1871 and until about 1970 was apolitical, only becoming a lobby when forced to do so by the active attacks on the right to self-defense and the means to defend life.
No attempt to repeal the Second Amendment has been proposed in Congress except for a few really radical lawmakers. Their proposals never got to a vote because only about ten states would ratify such an amendment.
But this has not prevented many local laws banning certain or even all firearms during the past fifty years.
When I joined the NRA over 50 years ago, an oath was required, to support the Constitution. A person also needed a sponsor to join, a judge, police officer, military officer or another NRA member. These requirements were struck down by a law suit that claimed it was discrimination.
The NRA supports all of the Bill of Rights and all of the Constitution. The NRA has an elected Board of Directors that includes men and women, and all races.
The NRA has always supported "reasonable" firearms laws. The argument is about what is reasonable and effective at controlling the dangerous individuals. Ultimately, the only protection is having the possibility of armed defense at every potential point of attack. Since to properly guard the 10, 20,000 schools and school students in the United States would require at least 1,000,000 armed police officers doing nothing but guarding the schools, in addition to the officers now enforcing traffic, parking, and other duties.
The simple fact is the USA would have to become a Police State if total security is demanded. We cannot afford this financially and nor can freedom survive if we are a police state with a cop on every corner and in each hallway and floor in every school.
