1. I had to get out of the country in 2004-5 after his

reelection I was so depressed and disheartened. I chose to go to Nice, France and Amsterdam, Holland or else I was going to lose my mind. It helped. Unfortunately I do not have the same opportunity now. This country is driving me insane! We must RESIST in every way possible and get people who are rational to vote!

3. I still think Bush was much worse.

Although it is still early in Trump's first term (which will hopefully be his last), in my opinion the Iraq War alone makes Bush worse than Trump. The Iraq War killed hundreds of thousands of people, created a huge refugee crisis, destabilized the Middle East and led to the rise of ISIS. This is not even getting into the widespread corruption, the botching of the response to Hurricane Katrina, the attack on civil liberties and other bad policies from the Bush years.

8. I agree. So far Bush was worse. And so many of his horribleness has been normalized.

I remember marching in DC and have a protest shirt about the Patriot Act. Now people don't even care. Even dems support it.

6. A Lot of Us Thought That The Voters Had Learned Better

A lot of us thought that the Iraq War and Dubya’s disastrous economic policies would have taught the voters to shy away from right-wing Republicans. Not only did the old saying that “The burned hand teaches best” seemed to be an idea that made good, basic, common sense, but I believed that a plurality of American voters of BOTH parties believed strongly enough in the ideas of good government and the idea that government served the interests of ALL the people that Hillary was going to squeak by in 2016.

What worries me is that too many swing-state voters STILL haven’t wised up and that the economy is going to have to go way south before the denizens of Red State Dumb-cluck-istan finally get the hunch that those Republicans they voted for aren’t their buddies after all.

7. Gosh, I used to think that about Reagan.

And I suppose it was just understood to be true of Nixon. But Repugs seem determined to plumb new depths, to dig the hole they plan to push us all into a little deeper (or a lot).

10. We still have 3 years of Dump.

One year of Shrub hadn’t fully exposed his depravity either.

Dump will be worse.
