Two Points

Washington, D.C.

(1) My prediction that the Trump years would be one where American politics would take on a continental European feel, in that we would witness the difficulty in governance in a multi-party culture, are starting to come true.  We have a Democrat Party, a doctrinaire conservative party, a centrist establishmentarian RINO party, and a Trumpian populist-nationalist party.

(2) As much as Trump is hurting himself and burning political capital by doing this, he would have been worse off if the rejected legislation of last week actually passed.

There’s still time to do this right.  By “do this right,” I mean (1) Pen and phone to suspend the enforcement of ObamaDontCare’s unpopular provisions, (2) Demand a full signed confession from the Democrats (including Obama himself) on the lies and skullduggery they engaged in to get ObamaDontCare passed and to defend it after it passed, and once they do, then they get to participate in the debate on where we go from here, and (3) Slowly and rationally figure out where we go from here, and single-payer should not be rejected out of hand.  What should probably be rejected out of hand is anything that smells like it was written by insurance industry lobbyists.

But most European countries are ruled by parlimentry coalition governments, not a winner take all for 4 years (+4) executive. It’s much harder to manage the frustrations of political operatives who lost out when the new jobs only come every 4 years.

Not that the match is perfect, it’s that there are a lot of similarities presenting.

Oh come on, QD. How many time do I have to tell ya? Trump’s not one of us, and he’s not saving YOU. He’s Reagan 2.0, and Reagan signed Amnesty, MLK Day and Moar Affirmative Action. Reagan did SHIT for US.
That Parliamentary analogy misses the fact that this is a Parliament of Whores. It doesn’t matter how many parties you have, man. They’re all whores. BNP was legit and EDL was nothing but talk, that Brexit is just the Enemy trying to BUY TIME.

It's your dime, spill it. And also...NO TROLLS ALLOWED~!
