The title makes it. There are no lyrics, but the vibe and the subject matter from the original game make this very fitting.

Politics and Government / Re: Mr. Trump Goes to Washington

I'm betting on eight years of Trump. The polls are worse than useless, and it's become cool to hate the law. Getting impeached will just make him more popular, though it might not get to the point where the people overthrow the government if they impeach Trump

That is not true. The polls erred, but the error was well within the margin. To be more precise, FiveThirtyEight predicted that Hillary would win the national popular vote by 3.8%. She wound up winning by 2.1%. Now, 1.7 is a big difference, but when the margin of error is 3.0%, it really isn't that big. And, when you stop and consider that the electoral college favored Trump in the first place (FiveThirtyEight reported that it would be a toss-up at around 2.5% national lead in the popular vote), that explains Trump's win. That doesn't mean polls are useless, or worse than useless, it just means that there are errors that are naturally built into them that arise from time to time; unfortunately, this time (to put it in  pokemon terms) Fissure hit.

I don't get it. Why would they gut everything and then blame trump for it? Shouldn't they be proud of all the bullshit they're going to do? It's like they know what they want to do will be extremely unpopular with the American people. So they need to put it on a fall guy.
This is why.

http://www.rawstory.com/2017/01/texas-women-who-get-abortions-would-lose-voting-rights-if-republican-lawmaker-has-his-way/

A Texas state representative has proposed legislation making either procuring or providing an abortion a felony in the state--no exceptions.

In Texas, having a felony conviction on your record means you lose your right to vote.

Of course they know it's unpopular, but their corporate funders want it. (Or, at least, they want the tax cuts that they can get when they no longer have to fund that stuff.)

The GOP never wanted Trump.  Oh sure the Fringe that has come to dominate the GOP did but the GOP leadership?  Nope.  Not a single one of them wanted him.  He's out of control and will never be brought to heel.  They'd rather have Pence in there but Pence doesn't win elections.  Trump does.  And when they do get what they want out of him and he's made himself such an ass, look to see an impeachment started and stick.  Probably around mid-terms.

Ironbite-so 2 years of this then the GOP throws Trump under the bus to get some form of moderates back.
