You ignored my point. And I don't know what your final map was, but I recall a map with four or five states being blue. California, Illinois, New York I think, and Maryland.

Even with a Trump win in an electoral landslide, that was a pipe dream. It ignored the neural bias towards democrats (indicated in the popular vote despite the loss).

You drew up something of a Reaganesque map. Where the entire nation would defy neutral and be a literal republican landslide. I'm sorry, but a literal landslide wasn't possible in this epoch. It just wasn't.

So, American friends, we often hear about the checks and balances that exist in the United States system of government.

With a Republican held House and Senate, what sort of check will there be on Trump's power? It would seem to me that Republicans would be too spineless to stand up to Trump if he does something that is so outrageous that they don't agree with. In this environment, what can or can't he do? It would seem to me that he has carte blache to do anything he wants. Somebody please tell me that this is not the case.

The only hope we have is that some in the house and senate who denounced Trump during his campaign are defiant towards his fuckery when he wants to enact bullshit.

So basically... our only hope is the leadership of Paul Ryan :/ otherwise, he can do anything he wants.

Great. Just great.

According to excerpts of his 60 Minutes interview, he has softened his stance on a wall on the Mexican border, saying it could be a fence in some places. Someone else on his team said in other places they could have a "virtual wall" with drones.

Oh and he wants to deport 3 million illegal immigrants who have a criminal record. Cool beans.

Trump's Mantra that anyone who isn't white stands in the way of Making America Great again?

This.

I'd also like to think I've been pretty calm in here, except for right after what happened to my nephew happened.

I need at least one place I can feel I can voice my opinion.

That's kinda on the extreme side. The house and Senate owe trump nothing, so they're unlikely to feel any need to actively support all of his policies. They will likely veto many many things, should he pass anything at all in the first place.

There is the good ole Executive order that Obama liked so much, but there are limits to what he can do there.

The SCOTUS, even if Obama doesn't find a way to sneak justice 9 in, is as balanced now as it was before the election. So that side of the checks and balances system is also still stable.

It's what happens when he meets with other world leaders, and puts his cabinet into play that truly scares me right now.

Owe him nothing? Half of them support him. The other half are fearful of him -- he clearly has no regard for individuals keeping their seats. He's using his "shit list." He's going to have his congress working with him on the majority of shit. Especially because the majority of the shit that they're going to put forward is gonna come from Pence and the rest of his administration. Trump is gonna do whatever makes him popular enough to be re-elected.

Yay! Now a friend of mine was attacked in a 7-11 parking lot and told that he needed to go back to Africa, he's living in Trump's America now and if he doesn't watch out he'll be back in the fields picking cotton soon.

Awful. We knew racism was alive, but it's incredibly sad to see it coming back into power.

Paul Ryan is going to be voted out.
Hopefully Trey Gowdy will take over as speaker.

No way. deep sits there and tries to be devil's advocate or clever or witty.

bob couldn't manage that if he tried.
