I don't get this fatalism. You did just fine with Obama as pres for 8 years. Will Biden (or Harris if you believe in conspiracy theories) be that much worst?

______

As I said somewhere else, the president doesn't really affect my life, especiallywith a republican senate, but as a frum Jewish person that loves Israel it will affect me. Just like Obama with Iran deal, freezing settlements etc. I see these leftist liberals being even worse.

How do those things affect you?

The settlement freeze was done by the Israeli Government and is always a standard part of negotiations with the PA.

When trump scrapped the Iran deal, they started enriching uranium again, that seems worst to me than them not enriching uranium. It's hard to know what the right policy on Iran is, but I don't think the deal Obama made was given a fare shot.

It affects me because I care about Israel.  Direct payments to terrorists affects me, Iran deal affects me.  Affecting means affecting my interests as well.

Settlement freeze only happens when they are forced to.

You don't think that limiting domestic production, while destabilizing the ME will result in higher oil prices?

False premise.

Which part?

The limiting domestic production as he pleged? Or that the guy who was "wrong on every during policy question of his career" will destabilize the ME?

I honestly don't think "we", as in the citizens of the US, are toast.

Thank G-d Trump has nominated 3 very fine Supreme Court justices (and many other judicial nominations down the line). That should hold off on any drastic change of direction of this country domestically.

However, in areas where the POTUS doesn't really have much influence, there are some serious challenges. I honestly think that we're in for a MAJOR stock market crash and (separately) a major financial reset. There are also global geopolitical challenges that are really scary, G-d help us all.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In many ways, the boat has already sailed on both of those in how they affect oil prices. Even without that, there are so many other aspects involved, and oversupply can cause instability as well. There are a number of producers who went bankrupt due to low prices. These things can have negative long term effects.

The same guys that made good on their threats of Aliyah when Obama was elected will do so now. Translation- none.
if you can't see how our country is on worse shape then 8 year's ago no one can help you, 8 year's ago was the start of the process this could be the end
Chill. Despite what you may be hearing on talk radio not much is going to change in any perceptible way.
