Item 1 is likely never going to fly, and I question the legitimacy of it anyways. If voters in a district or state like their representative, why shouldn't they be able to run for an open ended number of terms? There are some decent reasons for limiting the President's terms, but none of those really apply to Representatives or Senators. It's like declaring "All engineers and doctors must retire after ten years!" Beyond that, I doubt there would ever be enough approval among the states to get it through.

Item 2 is silly. You can't say what needs may come in the future. Mindless freezes won't do anybody any good.

Item 3 is the same kind of idiotic item 2 is. Why should there be some upper limit of regulations? There's no real coherent philosophy here at all.

So while some policies might make some sense, others are just stupid, and item 1 at least is almost certainly never going to happen. And considering Trump's long history of pretty dubious deals, what makes you think he's the man to do any of it, when even his own tax plan would both increase the debt and largely only help people like Donald Trump, which means he'd simply be adding to the kinds of policies that screw over the average person.

But you've also left out some items:

Item 7 - Abuse his position of head of the executive branch to pursue his political opponent.
Item 8 - Sue the women claiming he sexually assaulted him. This one is particularly stupid because, of course, suing them means they in turn get to delve into his sexual history via discovery, which could lead to both civil and criminal charges against him. This is what I'd call the Oscar Wilde Blunder; mainly because it resembles what Wilde did when he was openly accused of homosexual acts by the father of his lover; the Marquess Queensbury. Wilde decided to sue the Marquess, and of course, the trial inevitably lead to Wilde being outed, and then charged and convicted of moral turpitude. So if I were Donald Trump, win or lose, i'd probably stay away from civil trials over his alleged sexual escapades.

You're always here, and always with a reason we should just laugh off all this negative stuff.

That's not the part for laughing. The laughing comes when you remember that goofballs in the "alt-Right" actually nominated someone who is so awful that people are willing to overlook all "this negative stuff" about Hillary.

Yes, I'm sure the Republicans will waste lots of time on conspiracy theories that produce nothing, egged on Breitbarts and Trump TV. And it won't amount to anything at all. This is just Birther Scandal Part 2.

It's a pity the Republicans didn't pick someone like Rubio, but they didn't, they picked Trump, a man so ridiculous that even many of those who can't stand Clinton cannot abide the thought of him winning.

So what are your qualifications to diagnose psychiatric conditions, and how many times have you met with Clinton to confirm your observations? I mean, you wouldn't just be some asshole on the Internet googling up WebMD and then simply forcefitting your personal beliefs on Clinton into what really is a very general description from an online site, would you?

Well its better for the NSA to publicly pretend to not have the emails so that when clinton is president they have something to extort her with.

Wikileaks has now released FIFTEEN tranches of thousands of emails each and there's been absolutely nothing extortion-worthy in any of them.

Conspiracy theories are conspiracy theories. You'd think after 30 years, people would give up making up shit about Hillary Clinton. It just ends up making you look even more stupid. Assange, Wikileaks and the GOP have damaged their own reputations permanently over Hillary and they never seem to learn.
