Will America survive Trump?   America - all of it

Started 12/22/18 by Jenifer (Zarknorph); 81517 views.

It's just a listing of conflicts which American presidents decided to get involved in.

Presidents, political parties, and people in the media always have reasons.  Sometimes you like those reasons.   Sometimes you don't.  I have a feeling it's based entirely on party affiliation.

I'm sure that oil was the biggest factor in Bush II's Iraq invasion (which I opposed from before it began).

These days the U.S. doesn't need oil (it's an exporter), although many of its allies and enemies do, which is the rationale for a military presence in the Gulf.

The war on ISIS had nothing to do with any of this.  But you know that.

Also, as the world moves more towards sustainable energy sources, oil is having less of an effect on global policies, and tin pot dictators are losing their power.

When we no longer need it at all, many of these Middle Eastern countries will find themselves having to sort out their own problems.

We can disagree on how his words should be interpreted until the cows come home.  But some WILL interpret them in a way that best suits their own agenda and act.

This is why it is imperative that the President takes responsibility for his words, and makes sure they are not used to incite violence.

Just more people who misunderstood Trump's words, I guess...

I don't think I've ever read about or seen anyone intimidating anyone with firearms at a polling place.  Maybe it does happen, I just haven't heard about it.  I personally have never seen any intimidation at our polling places.  I suppose it must happen somewhere. 

BTW, the photo you posted has nothing to do with gun carrying at a polling place.
