November 2020 seems a long way off, but the short electoral cycles in the US mean candidates are already considering their options. Elizabeth Warren has become the first Democrat to openly explore running against The Donald but I imagine more will be heard from as the year rolls on.

Elizabeth Warren launches exploratory committee ahead of likely 2020 presidential run

The big question is whether the Dems can field a strong enough candidate to pull together the various anti-Trump forces in their favor.

On the GOP side, the big question is Trump himself. Will he last until November 2020? Will he run again? Right now, the answer to both seems to be "Yes!".

There's a chance he might step down or be forced out. We'll know better when Mueller's report comes out if there's any basis for him not to finish his term. But if he runs, Trump's going to be re-elected. You heard it here first.

Lies go on and on when we prefer to not know the consequences of great lyres ... this too is general vernacular ... because of what is not known!

Investigations thereof are drawn out as in Deis and mandrels ... sometimes compared to hammers ... dark seizure?

Do extremes of politic 'n need a rest to allow time for intellectual process? Consider all that we don;t know ...

And if he is, it will be on the backs of Christians.

I just had a most interesting thought. Imagine if you will that in 2020 Trump wins the national popular vote but loses in the electoral college. The man who would be king would go totally apoplexic.

I predict it will end up being Warren vs Romney for the 2020 race. Not sure who'd win that. Either one, though dissimilar - are more similar to each other than anyone is to Trump, and Americans might really welcome the familiarity.

I'll be surprised if Pence is on the ticket again. He seems like someone biding his time right now - and not saying anything. He has his own plans, I think - not necessarily to run for anything, but to make a change for himself.

My concern is more with the pullers of strings than with the song and dance of the puppets on stage. Whose interest is served by the rancorous division of a population?
The string pullers and puppets of seasoned veteran politicians are more like fairly equal ends of a pulley going back and forth. Trump is something terribly different. He, himself (or whatever disorder he may have) is causing much of the division. He seems quite content to cause chaos all by himself.

There are a few, now, however, who dance to the peoples’ tune more than before. Such as the former waitress from Brooklyn who is now a house representative from New York. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez...who got mocked and criticized on Fox because she was having difficulty finding a rental apartment she could afford in Washington, because she was still months away from getting a government paycheque. She’s shaking up the establishment - in a good way - by getting elected into it by her constituents (after a whole lot of going to community centres and door knocking and small fundraisers at diners and pubs) and being tenacious about change...for people with unmet needs. What Trump has done - if there’s anything positive - is help people see how glaringly wrong things are - probably mixed with regret that they didn’t see who he is, or didn’t care, before they elected him. It was blatantly obvious that he was not like the rest, and he was trouble. Not only has he divided people with his “show”, but people (such as traumatized refugee children) are living the real consequences of it. This is not the same puppet show as always.

Who makes this possible? The corporate media?

Whose interest is served? Diverse oligarchs?

Where is the imagination of the general population? Distracted by sport, theatre and political spectacle?

Chaos ... all is chaos ... it prevents the pagans from organizing alien intelligence into thought process ... thus despicable despots ... dumped out! Allows flighty missals ... fecundity in the night Skye ... Ephraim on a tear ...

Passion is prerequisite for giveing birth to the stunned and naivete ... to see if they can learn in a painful sequence ...

Tis all about latent intelligence ... it follows!

Oligarchs fight it ...

I think the imagination of the general population is making progress - beginning to.

Just a twitch at present ... because of great trauma, or darkness pulled over their eyes that all is well and great! But as incarnate ... not as apparently presented by falling projection ...

Be cautious about appearance ... like BS it may not all be believable for composted values ... thus myths may or may not be composed on either side of the medium dividing absolutes from abstract ... something to draw form as druid or a draught ... simulating a chilly Eire!

A dore rational opening to the kahn 'd mine ... a deep hole ... eld orea do! And a lot of the doings are just crap ... fertility of thought ... if pondered much! Inside the dark cloud a silver lining ... maybe ... tis uncertainty if unprincipled desires lead one to that point ... thus we are drawn out of reality ... into the after word ...

Imagine Trumps reputation in the future world ... abstraction on note Eire y ide?
