Introduction

The election seems over. The people have spoken. The Trump Presidency seems over after four years. A most consequential and controversial presidency is voted out. All is well in DC again. The people in power, insiders, lobbyists and the well connected can take a sigh of relieve. Back to business as usual. Let the people who know what they are doing take control again. Let them wheel and deal and screw the American public once again.

- Nov. 2020

Trump the Spoiler

In four short years, Trump has spoiled the status quo. Trump has dispelled the myth of governing is hard. Only professional politicians can do this job. One needs years of experience in government in order to govern.

Trump exposed the deep state, members who are in government but works for a hidden group who are nameless. They are the ones that pull the strings.

Trump exposed the media who has been tipping the scale for years in favor of one party.

Trump has exposed the bureaucrats, who are working in the various agencies, unelected but wields power and often abuse their power without consequences.

Trump has exposed politicians from both parties who are hypocrites. They tell the voters one thing to get elected and do exactly the opposite once in office.

How Strange?

So after four years of accusing our country of being a racist nation, now magically, all is well again.

The same goes for world opinion...now we are respected again.

The same goes for COVID virus. It is safe to re-open again...

The same goes with homelessness.

Or a million other problems associated with Trump.

How stupid do you think the American people are?

The Game Changer

Trump, win or lose, has exposed the corruption that is Washington. Not just Democrats, but some GOP and some conservatives. These people, have no principles. They are all about power and influence. They cannot allow an outsider to change how the rules and the games are played in Washington.

For four short years, Trump has shown another way. A better way to run our government. One that is effective and one that is for the benefit of all the people.

The days of politicians and lobbyists and secret donors and big business CEO getting their way in DC while the American people get screwed are back. The bailout of Big business are back. The taxpayers will be the chump getting stuck with the bill.

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Trump - Most Consequential President

In four years, he has changed the makeup of the judiciary for decades. Not only appointing 3 Supreme court justices, but over 300 lower court judges who are originalist in their judicial philosophy.

Trump has also exposed the corrupt politicians that frequent the Hall of Congress.

Trump has exposed the corrupt FBI and CIA and NSA for their complicity in the misuse of the FISA court to go after Americans.

Trump has broken the Plantation mentality for blacks in America. They no longer must vote as a block for Democrats.

Trump has demonstrated the wall does work.

Trump has exposed the main stream media as the biased corrupt cabal they were, with their phony polls.

Trump has made nationalism fashionable again.

Jack: In a court of law, you are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. But what Trump and company are doing is assuming the balloting process is guilty until someone or something prove them innocent.

You must actually believe that Trump has a chance of getting the electoral votes he needs to take away the presidency from Biden. This link shows the hypocrisy in what Trump and company is doing.

Until all court challenges are resolved, I would not count my chickens...

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 18, 2020:

Jack: It's not what could go wrong. It's that nothing went wrong. All of Trump's claims have been thrown out of court. Biden won fair and square. What is going wrong is the GSA won't recognize Biden's win and is obstructing his right to GSA funding for the transition.

This puts the country in jeopardy for both the virus and makes us vulnerable for foreign power influence, all because of one women who is following Trump's orders. This whole thing could be over in a flash if AG Barr was working for our country instead of being Trump's personal lawyer.

yes, but this is the first national election where so many votes were cast by mail-in ballots. So, what could go wrong?

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 17, 2020:

Jack: You mean the people who are counting are not allowed to take a break?

Here is Trump's scenario. I I win, it had to be legitimate. If I lose, it had to be rigged.

Let's say you are in a fencing competition and you tell the crowd, If I win, then I know the judges are telling the truth, but if I lose, then I know they are not telling the truth and we have to investigate their score cards and see if they are actually judging by the rules.

Let's also make sure they are judging by the rules by having my crew oversee how they do their judging. I will not declare the other person the winner, until, I'm satisfied that I have not won, which may be never. That's what Trump is doing.

Jack all states except two use the winner take all method. So what good does it do to continue counting ballots when the winner of the majority of the popular votes takes the remaining votes?

How does a candidate win a state's electoral votes? Voters in each state choose electors by casting a vote for the presidential candidate of their choice. The slate winning the most popular votes is the winner. Only two states, Nebraska and Maine, do not follow this winner-take-all method.

Since 1836, statewide winner-take-all popular voting for electors has been the almost universal practice. Currently, Maine (since 1972) and Nebraska (since 1996) use the district plan, with two at-large electors assigned to support the winner of the statewide popular vote.

Jack Lee (author) from Yorktown NY on November 16, 2020:

This is the first time in our election where a large number of ballots were mail-in ballots. This is well established as a potential for fraud. Go google it. For you to deny the possibility of voter fraud just show how out of touch you are. Tell me when in past elections has some states stop counting ballots in the middle and decides to take a break? It has not happened but in this election. Why?

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 16, 2020:

Jack: Why is it then when they investigate, they find nothing? Did you want to see if dead people voted in Trump's election in 2016? I think not. Do you see the hypocrisy in this farce? Do you think obstructing Biden from obtaining access to the transition apparatus is a good for the country? The GOP headed by Lindsey Graham have investigated the investigators and found nothing. That is another one of Trump's farces.

Our corrupt justice system has nothing to do with Biden. It has to do with Trump using AG Barr as his own personal attorney. It would be so easy right now if Barr would come forward and tell Trump to stop this nonsense, but he won't do that because he does not work for the country, he works for Trump and so does the GOP senate, including Mitch McConnell.

Jack Lee (author) from Yorktown NY on November 16, 2020:

mike, you have quite a lust there...

except some of them are not theory...but fact.

The fact that our corrupt justice system choose not to investigate is a different story.

We have hard evidence when it came to Bidden and his son Hunter in these Ukrainian deals and Chinese investments. Just one example of many.

When it comes to election frauds, let's see the bsllots. I want to make sure dead people don't vote.

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 16, 2020:

Jack; Why didn't you feel that way when Trump won the election with the same set of electoral votes? The GOP just accepted Trump's votes and then told us over and over again to get over it. He won and is your president, not Hillary, even though, she won the popular vote.

Trump has not won the popular vote and not the electoral vote. There is a funny thing about conspiracy theories, they leave it up to those who don't believe in the conspiracy to prove to those who start them that they are wrong. That's why they are open-ended.

Cons

You have to stop watching CNN and read the NYT...

These media has proven to be dishonest and have created this mess we are in right now. Elections have to be verified and right now, because of the mail-in ballots and irregularities in some large cities blue States, I have no confidence in the results. Despite the ruling by some judges who may be partisan as well, I would like to see this thru. These ballots needs to be verified and the election machines checked for integrity. If at the end, all is well, I will abide by the voter's choice.

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 16, 2020:

Jack: The House can't pass bills without the Senate's approval. Trump and Mitch McConnell have a strangle hold on the GOP Senate. They know if they tell truth about the election and give Biden access to the transition team, they will lose Trump's base of 72 million people

As far as outstanding voting issues, the judges have thrown all of Trump's claims out of court, because the lawyer's were under oath to tell the truth and they didn't want to perjure themselves. So far, there is no evidence of wrong doing. There is only Trump's conspiracies which can't be proven. And now Giuliani is Trump's primary lawyer...good luck with that..

Trump has put this country in a very precarious position by not allowing the Biden team access to the transition apparatus. Trump knows that when he is out office, the federal judges are coming after him for tax evasion in New York and 10 counts of obstruction of justice.

He will try to do everything he can to stay in power. I believe his next move will be to influence the electors in the certification of electoral college votes in order to take the presidency away from Biden. He will do anything to benefit himself at the expense of others. In my book, he is a very despicable person. Jack, you have to stop listening to Hannity and his cohorts.

Jack Lee (author) from Yorktown NY on November 16, 2020:

mike, the power sits in the House under Nancy Pelosi. They control spending bills. As you well know, money talks,

The election is not over just yet. There are many outstanding issues with voting both because of mail in ballots and because of Dominion voting machines in some States.

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 15, 2020:

Jack: How did Trump make it work for the average Joe? Coal miners, steel workers, and farmers are all out of work. Promises made, Promises not kept.

Mike Russo from Placentia California on November 15, 2020:

Jack: The people in power are the GOP Senators under McConnell and the Supreme Court, Plus AG Barr who is Trump's personal attorney, instead of the attorney for the people.

Biden is going to have a tough time, just like Obama did, because the GOP senate is going to do the same thing they did to Obama and that is block his every move. The reason they are supporting Trump and his fantasy world is so they can get re-elected again by using his base for re-election. That base is crying the dems have stolen the election when there is no verifiable proof of that happening...talk about living in a fantasy world.

Jack Lee (author) from Yorktown NY on November 15, 2020:

Mike, If you think our democracy was working just fine before Trump, you are living in a fantasy world. Trump came along in 2016 precisely because they system was broken, it was not working for the average Joe. Now, it appears, the people in power are back in the driver's seat.
