Yeah. I voted for Jill Stein last year. No regrets. I don't see things changing in 2020. I'll probably vote Green again then, too.

I will repeat... impeached for what?

I'm not saying he has done anything to get impeached yet. I'm saying if the Dems regained power they'd come up with some reason to impeach.

You seem bothered by other people having a genuine interest in understanding the other side. Save that snowflake nonsense, it doesn't work anymore. You support the biggest crybaby president and the "Everything is fake news!" party. You are the ultimate snowflakes with the perpetual victim narrative.

I had vowed not to discuss politics following my return but let's just say Trump has another three years left to prove himself, to bring back jobs to the West, to rebuild our infrastructure and regain confidence after the calamity of the 2008 crash.

I'm rather pessimistic because the bottom line is the Chinese, Japanese and other Asian economies will work harder than us for less money, and until classical capitalists can break out of the mindset of the last 40 years the wealth and power will continue to diffuse eastwards.

Not good enough. "Coming up" with a reason is not the same as a president actually committing an impeachable offense.

He won't and neither would have Hillary Clinton. That's the problem with both parties, both love outsourcing. Many years ago many products were made in the USA and there were many jobs. I remember back in the early 90's getting a job at a call center and they paid well while I attended college. Now the call center I worked at is in India. The factories went to Mexico and China. On top of it the employers bring in lots of workers overseas, claiming the jobs can't be filled by Americans. I have news for them, I have applied for jobs I am qualified for, only to see a visa worker get it.

Well this is the nub of the matter. I can't see how they can get away with this after forty years of the same policies. Trump will stand or fall on this matter alone.

I blame NAFTA...but I couldn't even vote for Democrat nor Republican in the last election... so I went with the Libertarian ticket which I feel might be the new Third-party.

I like Gary Johnson a lot. Both parties are increasingly becoming very anti worker and that's sad.

GOP, under Trump, is the most worker friendly party in decades! Unemployment down, companies investing in America, creating jobs, lessening of job killing regulations, etc. Unemployment at a 16 year low. Wages going up. Yes, GOP is good for the worker. Libertarians on the other hand, believe in Darwins law of only the fittest survive. No Govt. help for anything.

Libertarians are bad for workers, perhaps even worse than Republicans. I have to vote Green these days because I'm a left-winger when it comes to economics. Even the Democrats are right-wing capitalists.

In many ways...some Democrats are Limousine Liberals.

Look at Hollywood...most celebrities there are Democrats and they're all Limousine Liberals!

The Democrats are run by limousine liberals these days. Liberal on social issues, but still look down on the poor and think it's their fault for not being successful. We need people in power who don't think poverty is a moral failing, but realize most poor folk are good people that are just the victims of a corrupt system.
