    So if he should win do we have any predictions for 2020 -2024? what about the wall, if eh wins will he get the wall built surely not now theres too many obstacles including court cases) what about SDNY? New York?

    if they are still investigating will the probability of indictment and and also arrests of the Trump family be soon? I think its quite possible his family will be indicted but it may take awhile, but if he makes it in 2020 yea, it maybe just around the corner.

    How much more investigations will arise with a new elected Trump? What about the economy does it stay good? korea and other countries, our relations with them? Social security will I be out of my pay check or medicare? What happens with that?

    More about Trump, I think hes got health issues and mental problems, truly I think hed be better off if he would step down. I know Republicans see that as me being against Trump, I do have bitter resentments against Trump but I do believe it would be healthier for him to step down.

    If he wins, I predict a heart attack or mental breakdown or both.

    If he wins, Democrats are likely to win Congress and if historic tends follow we should see a decrease in obstructionism.

    As long as Trump gets a new VP and assuming a Dem Congressional win, I don't see Trump's second term being that bad (however, his health is a major concern if Pence is still tagging along, in which that case a Dem-controlled Congress will be a godsend). Trump is likely to shirk some of the Republican, Evangelical, Conservative demands and expectations to "buddy up" with Democrats and make himself appear the "bigger man" who reached out across the isle and proved his a great negotiator. It would boost his approval rating, and he'd get the attention and adoration he so craves, which has been evaporating from his MAGA base.
    Democrats would be wise to take full advantage of such a situation (but they won't, because they tend to back down instead of playing hardball).

    Well he certainly won't have to worry about reelection. Perhaps he'll drop the whole wall thing. Some Democrats may want to double down on impeachment. Four more years of Trump may make them a bit crazy. I kind of assume Trump would be picking a new VP. Maybe not, Pence I suspect is there to appease the evangelical base.

    I kind of suspect my life wouldn't have been that much different if Clinton won.

    I shudder to think what Trump would try as a lame duck President.

    I can say that living in California, where not even Pence (the one I consider the far greater threat and danger) can touch me now. Had Clinton won, the Supreme Court nominations would have been great, but not living in Indiana anymore my own personal life is pretty much un-affected. Being here, I no longer fear Trump's over due Big McHeart Attack.

    Supposing he wins. We're desperately in need of campaign finance reform and banishing of gerrymandering. Everyone no matter whom they voted for should form a cooperative conspiracy to gain Trumps support and that of enough reps and senators to get campaign finance reform. We should all weaken the power of the 2 major parties. Is that going to happen? Well I don't know. It might actually work if Trump won, but maybe it could work if the other party won. I know this that both parties spend time patting pet issues on the head while getting nothing accomplished.

    Realistically, probably say "**** it" and golf and piddle around doing what he wants and ignoring and blowing off everything he can (more so than he does already).

    The first step is to not be emotionally invested for or against candidates.
    The 2nd step is to repeat the first (because it's so easy to fail).

    Trump seems perfectly fine. Are you sure it isn't the left that's going to have the heart attacks and breakdowns?

    I am getting interested in rugby. I am familiar with it through various experiences over the years, but I do not understand the game at all. It is like a bunch of very large men wrestling on a soccer field and they have a ball.

    Personally, I do not like Trump. He is an odious little man with what appears to be serious issues with narcissism. He is a significant contributor to the divide in this country and he has made bigotry and violent action furthering bigotry seem to be OK. I can think of several Republicans that would have been much better at being presidential than he is and done I fine job I think. On the plus side, the economy is doing great and while I do not attribute that to him completely, he has had a positive impact on it. While I do not like him, I have to admit he has done some things to throw a rope around spending that will benefit the country in the long run.
