How many of us will say: i am Canadian

On our next visit abroad 😂😂.

Not quite I expected from making America great again

Too bad the Syrian ban hasn't been in place before

the US would be doing so much better without Abdul Jandali and his idiotic son Steve Jobs, the great destroyer of jobs.

The economic impact of all this will be considerable

The US has often been the no1 destination of the most brilliant minds and the most successful entrepreneurs, a key component of GDP growth.

Im sure most will reconsider before their expatriation to the US.

And so very soon the leader of the free world will be

Germany...battling against the trump-putin axis of evil

Kind of ironic

I feel for the veterans..

opposing Trump globally

We need internal resistance and external resistance

In Europe, this year's key election will be in France, which will decide whether Le Pen (alt right), Fillon (Tatcher I kind of dont like Europe) and Macron.

Macron is pro globalization, pro innovation, sets climate change as his first priority, is very pro Europe, has empathy for the refugees (http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/749522/Merkel-saviour-Europe-left-wing-Emmanuel-Macron-France-President-immigration-Germany)

He will drive the external resistance to Trump and is starting doing so, claiming Britain is becoming the vassal of the US (https://www.rt.com/news/375320-uk-us-macron-vassal/)

We need all progressivist forces around and we can all help. His chance is real but coming without the support of a party makes it much more difficult.

real way to help is to donate (https://en-marche.fr/je-donne/). France has this particularity that anyone in the world can give (to a max. of 7500$ per person) and 10mio for a campaign. So we can make a big difference. I just donated 100$.

Would be fun to read a pouring of donations coming from the US haha

The word of the president of the USA

On 22 October 1962, President Kennedy informed de Gaulle about the Soviet attempt to put missiles in Cuba through his special emissary, former Secretary of State Dean Acheson, who flew to Paris. When Acheson entered the presidential office at the Palais díElysťe to present the photographic evidence, de Gaulle answered ďThe word of the President of the USA is enough,Ē he assured Acheson, as he dismissed the accompanying CIA technical expertís attempt to show him the intelligence. He offered Franceís support.

Which country will take the President's word as enough evidence going forward hahaha

The terrible performance of stock markets under GOP

Data from 1927 (i dont have before)

First fact, over the 8 Republican presidents (Coolidge to GWB), the total SP500 gain under them was a shocking NEGATIVE 661 points. This is largely due to the 941 point destruction market experienced under Bush Jr. But even after removing his checkered years, market would still have only been up 280 points under the Republican presidents.
Comparatively, the market advanced 2661 points under the 7 Democrats. If I remove the 941 points that Obama dug out from W, it would still be a gain of 1720 points.

More importantly, if I average the CAGRs under each president, the 8 republicans averaged only 1.29%, while the 7 Democrats averaged 4.89%.

Another critical fact to consider is the "Oh shit" meter, which kicks in when the market declines. There were four presidents that saw markets declining during their tenures. Three were republicans: Hoover (-69% over 4 years for a CAGR of -25%); Nixon (47% over 5.6 years, -11% CAGR); George W. Bush (-50% over 8 years, -8% CAGR). Democrats were represented by Carter (-14% over 4 years, -4% CAGR).

Lets see what happens under trump

There is one thing both trump and us agree on

And this is very clear from his tweets, like the one comparing his nielsons tv rating from obama s 4 years ago instead of 8.

he obviously beleives his electoral base is made in great majority of people that dont have much insights into whats going on. And on that i fully agree with him.

I'm done with the mourning, I know how I'll spend my energy in the next 3 months.

I am done with mourning, time to make a real difference again!

Because I donít want to look at my kids eye to eye and tell them: I knew about Climate Change and did nothing

Because no action will have more impact than political resolve

Because I canít think of a better way to spend my savings for the future of my children, I gave 25% of our college fund to the Clinton Super PACS and spent 2 months on the road raising assets for those PACS.

Today Iím energized again and focusing my efforts to France and to Macron because his top priorities are

1) The fight against global climate change
2) Rebuilding the French German relationship and a stronger Europe. Europe imposing a carbon tax will have a completely different outcome than if it is France alone

Climate change is not a US centric problem. Every country that steps up will increase odds that we give our children a chance.

Because a stronger Europe will p** off both Trump and Putin

Because a stronger Europe will help safeguard Americas' democratic interests

Because a stronger focus on climate change will p** off both Trump and Putin

Because Macron is a realist, understands economic constraints and world dynamics. Because he understands that with globalization and automatization all jobs cant be protected and the focus has to shift from protecting those jobs to protecting people (healthcare, training) and encourage and reward innovation.

Because the alternative is a far right candidate or a Tatcher type conservative candidate (who is pro life, against gay marriage, doesnít believe climate change is a priority and is uninterested in Europe)

Because Macron has a real chance of winning

Because Macronís biggest problem is a lack of funds (since he started with no party)

Because he only needs 6mio$ to be competitive

Because as incredible as it seems France allows funding from non French people, even those that have never lived in France (limited to 7500 euros per person)

I have energy again
