Your satisfaction with Trump works for you and this is a good thing for you. The only thing I despise is when people reject the mandates of our Founding Fathers in the Constitution and see political disagreement as a problem, instead of what it really is, and was intended to be by the signers of the Constitution of the United States — freedom from tyranny. The ability to disagree publicly, protected by that Constitution, made the USA different from all other countries — it made us a true democracy, far different from the European monarchies and totalitarian rulers the Founding Fathers had left behind. George Washington was asked to title himself Emperor or King— he declined, saying that no one man is above the will of the people, not anymore, and being called simply “President” was fine with him. He also stated, along with other prescient leaders of that time, that such freedom to disagree was the cornerstone of democracy — take that away, and we as a country will crumble like dust. To my mind, every time someone calls people who disagree with them vile names, the crumbling dust edges closer.
