What did he do again?

Mueller is going after Trump's finance jugular and Trump, all of the sudden, starts talking about self-pardon for him and his (crime) family.

Trump has stated his goals which most would agree would improve life in the USA is also his own personal goals which I believe he intends to keep.





He promised healthcare for everybody, cheaper and better than Obamacare. That is what he promised. Do you really think he intends to keep that campaign promise based on what we know about Trumpcare?


He will get there - eventually.

personally I hope he lets Obama care fail. End all gov medical assistance - let it crash - a massive shakeup is needed. Introduce competition back into the health industry. Drive the absurdly high medical costs down. Then reintroduce Trumpcare.

  Its going to hurt but will benefit all in the long term.



I read comments similar to yours from time to time but not only has that never worked, in any country, there is no healthcare expert that advocates it. Not only that, that is not what candidate Trump promised. So we can safely say that Trump will not keep his healthcare promise.

OK so you have learnt a new word - good for you.

Not that I've learnt a new word, but that I've come to realise that Trump supporters live vicariously through him in a way that, maybe, Americans are more susceptible than other peoples are. Australians (generalising of course), for example, are far more suspicious of wealth and affluence being a cause for admiration of a political leader.

I admire Trump - but not for the reasons you think. He has courage, principles and commitment to do the best he can for himself.

Doing the best you can for yourself is not a characterisation that the governed should ascribe to their governors. History is littered with the corpses of rulers doing the best they can for themselves - almost always at the expense of the nations and people they rule.


I think you fail to understand what drives Trumps popularity. I can only speak for myself of course. Its nothing to do do with shiny baubles - aircraft, beautiful wife, lifestyle etc. Its the blatant corruption in gov and corporations as well the obvious collusion between the two. Gov has gone from the ruled to the rulers.

Hopefully Trump may do something - he certainly appears to be making progress.

To address your second point, Trump has stated his goals which most would agree would improve life in the USA is also his own personal goals which I believe he intends to keep.

You have to realize that this old man doesn't stand to gain monetarily from his presidency. He could have taken the easy road as his predecessor did and had the media as his cheer squad. Instead hes tackling the vested interests who are stealing everything they can. It may cost him his life.

And in the meantime, Trump and his cohorts are being investigated for treason and other assorted crimes...

who cares about your crap in light of that?


And WTF cares about the 'crap' you post about your obvious obsession with American politics, you clown.


Australia's MSM is in lockstep with the American news media.

Occasionally the truth does breakout online. This is where shills like weak end come into play. By limiting and attempting to debunk online stories damaging factual information getting to the people. However the MSM lies are becoming more and more apparent. Witness the desperate rantings from these paid shills.
