"Just being a kid again, where there were no responsibilities or problems. When you just think that everyone's a good person and when you have no sense of reality. You're so happy when you're little and nothing bad happens and there are no worries. The older you get, everything just gets harder."

    Trump win could spur liberal resurgence By Brandon Kostinuk What!? President-Elect Donald Trump could be good for liberal Americans? Well, it isn’t so absolute as much as theoretical, and very much grounded in an expansive political estimate on a diverse and ever-shifting US political culture. But, nevertheless.
