    On The Eve Of President Trump's Inaguration

    Going to break my personal ban on political talk for this one post.

    Tomorrow, a new era in our nation's history begins as Donald Trump has his inauguration as the 45th President of The United States. One of the great things about our country is that we have a peaceful transition of leadership. A lot of countries wish they could say the same. Obviously, many people are not as excited as others about Mr. Trump taking the reigns. But we, the people, need for Donald Trump's presidency to be successful and we all need to root for that. If Donald Trump is a successful president, then our nation will be a lot better for it.

    Tomorrow, before Mr. Trump takes the oath of office, I intend to take a moment and pray. A prayer for him, Vice-President to be Mike Pence, for them to be guided to make the right decisions for our country. Also, a prayer that our nation's citizens will find a way to come together. We need to be. Hopefully, we will be.

    It's hard for me to be optimistic but I know that the debate will not end. Even inside the GOP and Trump's own cabinet.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. I hope it goes well over the next 4-8 years.

    LOL, you guys think you're praying for the country before he gets sworn in. :)

    I'm no Trump fan but I'll take him every day and twice on Sundays before I would take this Congress full of human excrement (D and R). I will join Garmel, at least for now and be cautiously optimistic, after all what real choice do we have? Maybe bat ****e crazy and this country really are a good match for each other. :)

    In all seriousness yes pray and pray and then pray some more. Even if Trump turns out to be a great president he's got his hands full with the mess our DUMAS politicians have gotten things in.

    I don't need to be told by any republican or any trump disciple what I need to do

    I remember 8 years ago and I remember the response to a man actually winning in an electoral landslide not only in the electoral college but won the popular vote and the response was:

    "Our number one political objective is to make [him] a one term president." - Sen. M. McConnell
    Everything the orange dude has said has been remembered and I remember the last 8 years to our President

    Thanks but no thanks

    Happy Radiohead tickets going on sale for their USA tour day though. :cheers

    I hope that he is big enough for the job. I hope that the job humbles him but does not humiliate him. I hope that he succeeds in his goal of keeping the country safe, and that he sees the value of contributing to peace and security around the world.

    I hope that he succeeds in his goal of delivering prosperity to the broadest swath of American society.

    Wonder if in his inaugural address he puts all of his business holdings in a blind trust as required by law

    I just hope we get through today without anyone getting killed. Baby steps. If he somehow will leave his ego at the door, there's a chance he could be productive in quite a few areas.

    This is more than likely to be the theme of the next four years though he is much more at odds with the GOP on several issues than Obama was with Dems so there's that dynamic, too.

    Well a major part of it is our collective anger and refusal to accept outcomes we don't like or acknowledge different points of view. Tension is already sky high and with thousands and thousands of people out there today, odds are someone starts some ****.

    I accept the outcome, he won.
    Disagree with direction but every two and four years we have a corrective mechanism

    Never had,there been a PEOTUS that has shown such disrespect and contempt for everything not bearing his name

    It's not like all of these conflicts of interest are new.

    Well my post was just as much directed at Trump and Republicans as it was you. Many of the same people who are decrying the protesters today also never gave Obama a chance from day one. They could not accept the thinking of voters and saw him as a foreign-born, secret agent Muslim hooligan determined to destroy the country. He's got three and a half hours left.

    There are a good bit of people on the left today who believe or just say out of their ass that any difference of opinion is a racist one. I need something a little more intellectually-compelling. Get off the Twitter, stop proclaiming the end of the world and go make the country a better place from the ground up.

    I don't have a lot of confidence in Trump to learn to be humble and graceful, but he has to for us to function. He has to learn to hear the voices of those who didn't support him and not automatically launch into tirades.

    The previous 44 men for the most part respected the office. He needs to do the same.

    Your memory is wrong. Sen. M. McConnell said that in 2010.
