It’s a bit unfortunate about the server issue, because the months before the election and leading up to the election it was extremely active here. Whoever took down the server did a number.
I recall on election night I must have tried to load this forum 100 times, it was a moment of shock and awe for the entire world. I couldn’t sleep that night and being a semi-regular for a while here, and learning a great deal about U.S politics, it was a night we all should have shared. What can you do eh?
In the end, it’s great that this place is back up, I am not an old timer on this site like others, but I enjoyed the debates and discussion for the most part.
I think in time, people will slowly come back. Site was down for some time and summer came and went. Winter is here, Christmas around the corner. I bet it picks up again with fresh debates.
Its also perplexing with this administration that doesn’t seem to want to fullfill Trumps promises, they are underestimating the mood of the country yet again, he is the ultimate outsider and it’s taken the Old Guard, well, off guard.
I’, starting to think that many people who supported the GOP do so simply because the alternative is so ideologically unappealing and they are hoping Trump can achieve his promises int he face of so much opposition There doesn’t seem to be a great concern by some to assist the very voters who gave them the WH, and you can see in some reports that donors are not happy with the lack of support Trump has received for his overwhelming victory.
