So, 4 years ago I asked what UR members from outside the USA thought of our electing Donald Trump as he was coming into power.

Now that he's on his way out, especially with the event on Wednesday, I'm curious what you might be thinking.

Not looking for political comments from American citizens, just the point of view from those not involved.

Everyone in Germany in 1944 had Hitler running the show.. History can repeat itself and some guys would do the power trip as a president of a country with such power, the world is your oyster. Ronald Reagan was one president that people didn't take serious but did he do a shit job ?. JFK was probably one of the best presidents IMHO but someone wanted him dead. Conspiracy or not he was well liked amongst the people of America. Can a president hold onto his promises to make a country better or is that just a pipe dream to get votes. Even if the ballet was rigged, i couldn't see him being in his position much longer. Shit who would of thought the USA would ever have a black president but it happened.

I honestly never thought Trump would be elected, and when he was I thought he'd just do a forgettable job and then we'd move on.

Never in a million years did I think he'd have such ardent followers.

Paul, I think it's clear now that the political system of only having 2 parties (democrats/republicans) can be very risky when one of the two is highly unstable. Too many people in the Republican party do not have the courage to do the right thing now. I see a great lack of integrity there. Your country is now risking a civil war because of that. When you have more (than 2) parties which have to work together the politic is more mellowed out and creates less division. And you won't have that big of a problem when trouble occurs in one of the joining parties as there is now in your country. I wish Joe Biden all the best for his almost impossible task to unite the country again. Although he is old he comes over to me as the right guy for the job right now. BUT he needs to deliver as quick as possible to get the other half convinced......!

Gotta say Dutch, we definitely have a party with some instability!

Rumor has it that tomorrow (1/17) all 50 state capitals will be attacked... I live 20 minutes south of the Washington State capital so I'm hoping the rumors are wrong!
