Welp, this is the day
Welp, this is the day Trump is sworn in as President.
Now a lot of his political opponents are hoping for him to fail. While I'm not a fan of the man, I do want his presidency to succeed. I want America to succeed. I'll support every program of his that is good for this country.
That being said, I'm going to fight against anything that he proposes that I think is bad for the country. In that way he's no more special than every other President.
I am not a Republican nor am I a Democrat. Frankly, both parties have some pretty dumb ideas as core beliefs. As an Independent voter I pride myself in voting for the best person for the job, regardless of affiliation. We are a pretty big percentage of NH voters. Part of the reason is that during primary elections we can declare for either party, vote, then undeclare and resume Independent status. Works for me.
I'm hoping things go without a hitch. The last thing we need is violence during the “peaceful” transition of power.
