Celebrate. It isn’t Hillary or Obama.

To me the appeal of Trump is that he might actually do some of the things he says he will. I am certain that almost every other Republican won't. Period. Even Cruz (though he may try; I suspect the Senate would work to thwart him out of pure spite). Are some of his positions extreme? Sure, if he does any of them even halfway it's miles more than anyone else would do.

You’ve already proven yourself to be impervious to facts, evidence and logic, ie, your idiotic claim that Trump is a Soros stooge.

Basically the same thing I said in another post a day or two ago.

I have my reservations about Trump too, but I still think he will at least try to do what he says, he will most likely pick good people to get things done, but will face heavy opposition at every turn from Congress.

but what are the alternatives?

How many of the people running for prez have...

Built 40, 50, 60 story buildings?

Met payroll for 1000 people or more week after week for 3 to 4 years or more until the project is completed?

Completed it on time and under budget?

Overseen that many direct employees for the past 40 years?

Dealt with all the various companies, contractors and vendors necessary to complete such a project, at the same time?

Pledged to do act as president without a paycheck?

I can only think of one. And it’s not a politician.

Trump has a reputation for doing what he says, on time, and under budget. No other politician can say that. He’ll face serious opposition, but I’m convinced it’s worth the risk to find out what he’ll do, the only other option is watching this country crumble. Nobody else has the backbone to do what must be done.

Your post of all of Trump’s accomplishments reminded me of Hoover. Although Hoover wasn’t to blame for the crash, he didn’t handle it the greatest either. Hopefully a President Trump will do better.

from wiki (I know!):

Hoover, a globally experienced engineer, believed strongly in the Efficiency Movement, which held that the government and the economy were riddled with inefficiency and waste...

Hoover, who had made a small fortune in mining, was the first of two Presidents to redistribute his salary...

Hoover tried to combat the ensuing Great Depression with moderate government public works projects such as the Hoover Dam. The record tariffs imbedded in the Smoot-Hawley Tariff and aggressive increases in the top tax bracket from 25% to 63%, coupled with increases in corporate taxes, yielded a “balanced budget” in 1933, but the economy plummeted simultaneously and unemployment rates rose to afflict one in four American workers....
