The important thing is that Trump protects us from progressives who are trying to violate our civil liberties for fun. All that other stuff doesn't matter.
Yes, it's ironic to realize that the success of the Trump administration is largely founded on the immense distrust that has grown for the Democrats.
The only people who support the Democrats at this point are people who are afraid of what will happen if they don't vote Democrat, e.g. economic depression, inequality growth, racism, sexism, withholding of health care, etc.
If not for all those fears, what would motivate people to vote Democrat?
Obama promised to transform capitalism into something that would simultaneously be inclusive and also environmentally responsible and sustainable in terms of resources and climate.
That administration enacted early-release programs and other criminal-justice reform measures that would supposedly reconnect parents separated from their children without the ex-cons bringing crime and abuse/exploitation back into the communities.
Now can we say that environmental responsibility was achieved, even before the Trump administration began rolling back regulations? Can we say that the economy was reducing carbon footprints and reforesting developed areas?
Can we say that crime, drugs, etc. went down as a result of softer criminal-justice and law-enforcement?
The reality is that there is global crime that doesn't care about anything except using people to get them more money. If people are released from prison to reconnect with their families and communities, that will not stop others who know them from their criminal days from approaching them with illegal business opportunities that are "offers they can't refuse."
Democrats offer great ideals, but they unfortunately don't have the power to prevent others with bad ethics from taking advantage of their liberal policies. If you pump an economy full of money and make it easier to get away with crime, you will get more crime and many businesses will not police themselves where they can make more money by not doing so.
Liberty should work to promote good behavior, but it isn't. Something has to be done to re-establish liberty and the good sense not to abuse it to exploit and harm others and the environment/future-generations.
I don't know what it would take for the Democratic Party to regain trust as policy-makers whose policies can actually achieve their stated goals, but it is a problem that goes far beyond institutional government.
