9. There is no reason to be angry

With a hostility never before experienced by any president, Obama has still managed to get much done... he got health care through and it is not a bad plan either. My own daughter is on it...it is better than my work-related plan. He took the student loans away fro the banks who were forcing kids to get cosigners even though the loans were subsidized and they redlined entire towns and counties. and those who are angry about college or income inequality...those who want single payer...it won't happen under Trump. Beat Trump with big number which gives Hillary the House/Senate and watch a liberal president take action...many think FDR was a born liberal. He was no such thing before he became president...the presidency shaped him. He was able to face down a conservative court and get his agenda through because the people elected Democrats to support him while in office. Sadly thanks to Greens and other malcontents...and the usual Democrats not bothering to voter off year, Obama had no such support. He still managed to do a great deal.
