139. That graph is a crock, but I'm not surprised that a Green advocate would

be pushing it here, trueblueGREEN.

I guess you didn't include a link because you didn't want anyone here to see that that site actually prefers TRUMP over Hillary. Way to go, trueblueGREEN!

https://www.politicalcompass.org/counterpoint-20161110

In Political Compass terms, the US has finished up with a socially reactionary anti-establishment president. It might well have had a socially progressive anti-establishment one. The inescapable conclusion is that the Democratic Party hierarchy preferred Clinton to lose than Sanders to win.

SNIP

Trump is an old-fashioned isolationist and protectionist. As alarming as the thought of his impulsive finger on the nuclear button may be, he will diffuse the escalating tensions with Russia, and the attempts to portray Putin as the new Saddam. he will also hopefully fulfil his promise to tear up the planned Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement, which many nations are being dragged into. Far from being merely about free trade, the TPPA gives corporations unprecedented and dangerous engagement in many aspects of governance.

Most importantly, Trumpís every move will be analysed and criticised not only by the Democrats, but also by large chunks of his own party. This is a healthier situation than during the previous eight years, when a Democratic president delivered a largely Republican programme while his party remained shamefully silent. A socially reactionary and highly unpredictable new president gratefully inherits the Obama administrationís provisions for illegal detentions without charges, domestic spying of citizens and extrajudicial assassinations ó precedents that would be damned as quasi-fascist if Trump had initiated them.
