I'm hoping Trump has a plan to re-unite Buzz Aldrin with Woody and Andy

Depends on the economy. So far heís doing pretty good on that front but the trade war might bite him (and us) in the ass. Iíd probably rather he get re-elected if it meant the economy had to tank for him to loose.

Who the Dems got anyway?

Not sure I agree with this.  Some of the numbers show that the economy is growing, but inflation is also at it's highest rate in years.  This means that even though a lot of workers are getting a bigger paycheck, they are able to buy less.  In addition, much of the growth that has gone to the people that already had great wealth.  The huge corporate tax cuts that were to allow them to hire employees and pay their people better (both things that would positively impact the masses) went to stock buyback programs which positively impact the shareholders. 

A number of people I have talked to in the financial industry (and some I have overheard at the coffee shop) are getting ready for this to tank and are recommending that people move their investments overseas. 

Our town's tourism numbers are down after being up year over year for almost a decade. Tourism is a huge part of our region's economy. People I know that are in that industry are telling me that the ones that are coming are spending less money. 

That's what I see, and that is all before this trade war bullshit has really had an effect.

Seems like things in the economy are really not that strong.

The other thing we have to worry about is housing - and this isn't Trump's fault.  Houses are super over priced and people are struggling to afford them.  I live in a place that is using places like the bay area, seattle, etc.. as feeder markets.  People sell their ridiculously overpriced homes there and come here, often paying cash for our slightly less overpriced homes.  This makes it super hard for someone that lives here and doesn't already own, or anyone moving from a less overpriced market.  Regular people are having problems buying houses.

I have talked to a number of people this summer that are selling their homes in order to rent because they believe there is an imminent crash coming in housing and they need to cash out now.  I did this same thing in '07 and rented for 4 years, then bought in '11 - so I'm really trying to pay attention this time around too.  It looks like there have been slight declines in the last couple months for a few metropolitan areas in the Case Shiller housing index.  If declines start showing in more cities - and for bigger amounts - housing is going to probably take a giant shit again. 

That has nothing to do with Trump's policies, but it's not going to look good if two Republican presidents in a row have a housing crash.  For the record, I believe the last one WAS due to the administration's policies.  I think this one has more to do with the obscene amount of money made in tech and that skewing the market massively.

Exactly. Its like 2016 opened pandora's box for ridiculous/absurd candidates. I wouldn't b surprised if our choices for  the next upcoming election are Ted Nugent and a live dolphin (b/c they're people too!)

i kind of feel like that's a pedantic critique and talks a bit to income equality and regional specifics and i feel my assessment might line up better with what would actually happen with swing voters. those voters are really only going to change their votes if they starting loosing jobs. gdp has been growing slight above his projections and unemployment has been going down. trump was already an asshole who was obviously getting help from the russians with lots of scandals and rascist policies before the last election so there's nothing new there.

Indeed.

I don't think it is impossible for these to run:

Alex Jones
Elon Musk
The Rock
Neil Degrasse Tyson

Might sound like I'm just picking for a Youtube feed, but you elected actors and other kinds of morons in the past.

I personally would love to see The Rock ruling the U.S. Hope he brings Vin Diesel along as secretary of state.

I'm also stoked to see that Steven Segal has been appointed to a Russian-U.S envoy.

If a fucking fat ass moron of a business man that has no political background can become president, I'm pretty sure literally any person can as well. Shit, a live dolphin would be better than Trump.

elon musk as a president could be pretty funny. for someone like me who doesn't live in the us. i imagine it wouldn't be that different to trump. just some other type of mark that uses twitter too much. he'd probably put a heck of a lot of money into nasa, which would be cool. on the other hand, i imagine him handing down posts to friends and acquaintances like trump does. and fucking grimes would be first lady. the thought is just as hilarious as trump, therefore it's highly realistic.

I would take basically any of the names mentioned over Trump besides Alex Jones, and that includes the live dolphin. Or a dead dolphin, for that matter.

Seeing Alex Jones's crazy ass in the white house would be hilarious for about 10 minutes and then I'd probably look into putting my house up for sale and seeing if I can get Latvian citizenship through my grandfather.

Honestly, I'll be pretty unsurprised if the orange guy gets reelected.

How the fuck is Neil DeGrasse Tyson in the same category as Alex Jones, Elon Musk, and the Rock? That dude is an actual scientist without a discernible political agenda besides being pro science and reason based. We would be so fucking lucky to have an actual science communicator and professional smart person as president. To play devil's advocate, if for some reason these four threw their hats into the ring, I'm pretty sure The Rock would win in a landslide. ;)
