 Most reasonable citizens in this day and age prefer leaders who are socially liberal and fiscally conservative.  Well it seems that Trump has managed to piss off both sides of the coin by being fiscally liberal and socially puritan.  It's gotten to the point that even hard-line Republicans are getting extremely anxious about the coming proposals to increase military spending as well as the controversial wall around the Mexican border.  Hill Republicans quake at Trump's budget-busting wish list.

I think it is certainly clear at this point that no one who is either sane or doesn't have a vested monetary interest in the presidency is completely unhappy, and I never thought I'd find myself feeling sorry for the Republicans.  Still, they did kind of bring it upon themselves.

So more spending and less taxes?  This is only going to end well.

Seriously, though, where is he going to get the money for this?

Trump, meanwhile, has made clear he has little interest in tackling the biggest drivers of the national debt: entitlements. Republicans have been yearning to overhaul Medicare and Social Security for decades.

Does social security and welfare really drive the debt?  This is something that could be solved by taxing higher-income individuals, but it never happens due to conservative resistance.  There's also the drive to put people to work even if they can't work or the job market is terrible to cut the deficit without raising taxes on the rich, which punishes the people most in need.  I just personally despise any talk of cutting welfare because of the current state of it and how we need it more than ever to lift young people, the poor, and disabled out of crippling, permanent poverty.  More jobs doesn't mean less poor people when not everyone can work a job and more people with jobs doesn't mean more people out of poverty.

Why are people trusting Trump with their money? He clearly has no idea how how be responsible with money.

I forgot about Trump University.  If you think about it, the legacy of that monument to corruption totally explains why he'd choose someone like Betsy DeVos to be education secretary.  They don't like public education so they think they can do it better by treating it like a business.

Of course not. Public education is Socialism, so it has no place in America.

He's pretty much filling his cabinet with CEOs, so he plans on running America like a business.  He'll also bankrupt it like one, too.

All I can say it is SIMPSONS CALLED IT:

Let's consider this another reason to hate Christians.

Why?  What did Christians do? Trump wasn't put in office solely by Christians.

Well, them, and the super-wealthy who want to continue getting richer and richer by making the poor get poorer and poorer.

You're referring to the ultra-conservative evangelical Christians like Hagee that literally preach sermons like he was sponsored by the Republican party.  There are plenty of Christians that don't like the strict, old ways.  It's just the louder ones.

Can't say I disagree much on the rich getting richer part, though I know that's also a fallacy to assume all wealthy people want to manipulate the government to obtain more wealth at the expense of the less fortune.  The problem is, the ones that do want to do this have a ton of influence in the US (and foreign) governments and pretty much are priority one with both parties because they fund almost everyone's election campaign.  They also lobby like crazy (though I heard Trump booted lobbyists out).
