Why I'm glad that Trump won. And will there be any silver lining to look forward to the Trump presidency?

I am NOT a Trump supporter or even trying to get anyone to like Trump (in fact, I'm developing an article called "Concerns about Trump, & what would probably still need fixing from the Trump presidency" to target Trump supporters), but rather, I wish to help make people slightly more optimistic about what's ahead.

Also, when reading this, you don't need to stop and look at every video, especially the long ones. I reccomend to keep going and come back later for the videos.

I know that many people don't like Trump. And often, they REALLY don't like Trump.

While I am not Trump's biggest fan (he does not earn my endorsement), and I know that he is not principled (most politicians aren't, unfortunately), and is not even pro-personal-liberty outside of gun rights (but what do we expect?), at the same time, we can expect a few positive but hardly ever talked about things to go along with the world getting better.

Now, to make it a little funny for people who need to be told jokes to understand something, here's what a self-proclaimed liberal had to say about this:

Okay, let's say that Trump is the big bag of crap. While I disagree with the bag of crap's social views, sloganeering, how partisan he is, and his overall lack of principle and philosophy, inside that bag of crap, there are actually a few things that are actually good. So what are those positive things, pretty much from the smallest to the largest?

First off, Donald Trump opposes NAFTA (which hurts Mexico's economy, especially with government subsidised businesses in the U.S. driving Mexican businesses down and forcing people to the U.S. for better jobs) and the the TPP (

Second, Trump knows economics. He's not a free-market or Austrian economist, but at least he's a businessman. Even Michael Moore agrees.

As for his past financial mistakes, so what? I'm pretty sure that there are many successful people who made mistakes and learnt from those mistakes.

Third, he wants to put in term limits and get money out of politics. Even at least one writer from the left-wing website Alternet agrees:

Being a multi-billionaire, at least he's less likely to be brought out by special interests, which is why so many politicians have little to no real values or integrity and those who have real values or integrity don't get much money or media attention.

Now, with is position on Israel, I'm not sure how much action, if any, that he'll take against AIPAC (he spoke at AIPAC before but this article and its clone claims that Trump "exposed" AIPAC). But regardless, especially with how AIPAC is intertwined with the military industrial complex, taking power from special interests will be a step in the right direction. Even for you interventionists out there, don't you think that it's better to go to war on principle instead of business interests?
And this is nothing against Jewish people (I am against collectivism).

When listening to this guy, question everything he says. I do NOT agree with all of his social views.

And fourth, and most importantly, he is one of the least pro-war candidates and is willing to help Assad fight ISIS.

And if you still disagree...

If you wish to protest, do so in a way that wouldn't harm or disrupt the life of your neighbors.

I reccomend reading Donald Trump: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly .

Now here are a few other good things...

He wants to eliminate Obamacare.

He's not terribly anti-gun as some other politicians;

And hopefully Trump will declassify some more stuff such as the redacted 28 pages (not a guarantee, but just a hope, especially considering how he wants to get Snowden ( 

As for climate change, I'll direct you to

Donald Trump is what we get for not getting in Ron Paul before.

And don't think that Bernie Sanders was all that great.

Or Gary Johnson...

Bonus: Lew Rockwell and Ron Paul believe that better times are ahead.
