This election was Trump’s to lose.After that first debate I started saying he was going to lose.He did a great job for the country,but his ego got the best of him.I voted for him both times,why he couldn’t just let his policy do all his talking.I truly believe he woke up every morning thinking how he could piss off the Democrats.Just by the things he was doing for this country would have been enough to piss them off.Just my 2 cents worth.The Republican are going to have to come up with one hell of a candidate for 2024.We can only hope grandpa Joe and spread eagle foul things up so bad that this country comes to it senses.

WHAT IS GASLIGHTING?  The term originates in the systematic psychological manipulation of a victim by her husband in Patrick Hamilton’s 1938 stage play Gas Light, and the film adaptations released

Don't negate the likes of what got Trump elected. His past was well known, and documented. Like him or not, I feel he adamantly had "America First" at the forefront of his presidency. The cost is/was

Yes there were many times I wished Trump we be quiet, but his ego is bigger than he is.. I will admit, he did help lose the election in some ways due to his ego... I'm going to miss the prosperity I have...  Jojo

 The FBI is arresting those people, local law enforcement is responsible for last year. 

 What part is it you want back? Because if it's all of it-most of it you wouldn't want back

  if you grew up in the late 50's through the 60's. It wasn't leave it to beaver.

I guess you have a good point.. I just wish we weren't so divided, it seems like it gets worse each year...Too many people out for Power and Self... As far as the country, I don't want it to be conrtoled by Commies,  I have no idea of what real communism is, only what ive been taught.. Anyway, I am greatful for the freedoms we have, that was born of the blood of soldiers. Thats what I want, sir... Thank you for the insight, Jojo

 It's called meeting in the middle, Both side have to give, it can't be one direction. I will help anyone who

needs real help I won't help or go along with phony ideas or laziness. Every morning I get up and make 

concessions all day in order to achieve what I started out to do. I think everyone likes their freedoms,

just some don't show it or think about it.

I give you an European perspective on where the Democrats and the Repulicans stand in comparision to the European political parties. The political views and aims of the Republicans would be seen in Europe as right wing politics reaching into the fare right, while the political view and aims of the Democrats are in Europe represented by political parties slightly right from the middle. Thats why I always have to laugh a bit if you call the Democrats, even does of the left wing, Commies. In Europe we have some political parties that are near beeing Commies or evolved from real communist parties. But they are far left in the european politcal spectrum.

 

For many in Europe it is terrifying to see that a country that evolved from a united fight against a hugh problem (and showed unity in many crisis) is now diveded strongly in two parties in a manner that a civil war is more realistic than fighting a crisis united. But we see this strong seperation of politicals view also increasing in Europe. I see it as a result of todays politicans not beeing able to explain the complexe problems they face in a manner that most of the people not involved in this job can understand it. And those who speak in an understanable way do only offer simplifciations, agitation and even hatred

 Most of depended on how big and which city you lived in. But the real problem is acreage to the amount of people in the united states.

I saw an the news that 10,000 to 20,000 national guard troops will be on hand for Biden's big day  to protect from the home grown terrorists   . That right there looks like voter fraud .

As "working man" or low wage worker I wouldn't want to live in the USA. I live in Germany, our education system is for free, even the universities. Everybody has a health insurance that does not cost a fortune and half of it is paid by the employer. We even have a goverment owned insurance system if you get unemployed. As low wage worker these are all things that save you from getting unemployed to homeless. Or from getting bankrupt because you are ill. And theoretically everybody has the same chance in education (in reality it still is easier for those from families with higher education).

I'm a high educated university graduate working in quality management and having a wage in the top 10%. Therefore I have to pay the highest tax rate and highest healt insurance rate. But due to those free or low cost benefits I have in Germany I'm willing to pay highest tax rate. I faced unemployment twice, and was happy that the state jumped in. I'm having some chronic illness that would cost me a fortune in the USA and would lead to struggel even with the high wage I get.

The state in Germany has a significant higher impact to our daily live as it has in the USA (even if the democrats would fullfill all there Ideas) still we have one of the highest degrees of freedom worldwide and you still can get wealthy with hard work (as long as you don't work for the wrong company).

I guess it depends... I grew up then, late '50s through the '60s.  I saw zero crime,.  As kids we didn't have to worry about roaming perverts or gangs.  Ride our bicycles into town and throw them in a pile behind the Woolworths, get a coke for a dime, a candy bar for a nickle, and go see the Saturday double feature for 50 cents.  Nobody stole our bikes, still there when the movie let out. Mow lawns for $2.00.  In the winter, shovel snow off driveways for $2.00.  I'd take it all over again (except for the times in the principal's office or detention when we were being turds and deserved it.)  As high-schoolers, hitch hiked from NJ to FL to CA to TX, all over the place.  No problem.  Go to the beach and boardwalk in the summer.  Play pinball in the acades for a nickle a game and listen to the juke, 3 tunes for a quarter. For me was all good, even though I didn't know it at the time.  Never saw my parents have words or any arguments at all.  So, it was Leave it To Beaver for me, kind of. Guess I was just fortunate.      

Sad my kids didn't see much of that freedom and my grandkids won't ever enjoy that safe and relatively worryfree environment. 

Pretty much same here, except for that hitch-hiking part🤣

That's sounds great....for you. But not everyone whats to live that way. This is a perfect example of why the whole globalist "one world" direction that we are all being pushed to is so wrong. Having individual countries with their own customs and laws and individualities gives EVERYONE somewhere to live where they can pursue their own idea of happiness and success. There is a reason that so many people fled Europe over the last 250 years to come to north America. North America was a haven for those that wanted to "make it on their own", something that they could not do in Europe. However, not everyone whats to "make it on their own" and there needs to be a place on this planet for those, as well as those of us that do. You don't have to agree with it but you should respect others right to live how they want even if you don't understand it. Personally, while I understand how that would appeal to some, I would never want to live in a country like you describe but I support your right to as long as that way of life is not being forced on me. Some people like unions to look after their interests for them, other want to take care of their own destiny. Some pop,e what to live in a Home owners association district where there are rules as to how you can live and how your house/yard must look, others do not. There are LOTS of countries that offer what you describe (to some degree). Why can't North  America remain a place for those of us that choose otherwise???
