We'll just have to wait and see how this proposal is received by Congress and 
ultimately the American people. 

 Also, we should take into account the voter turnout in the last election.   
According to a radio talk show host here in SF, the voter participation in the 
last election was only about 37 percent of the eligible citizens who can vote 
in the entire country.   So, one can estimate that the Republican mandate 
represents only about 20 percent of the eligible voters.

 So, depending on the main issues confronting the nation, the voter turnout and 
results in the 2016 elections could be much different than the last one.

position. Does he prosecute the war as directed by congress or does he grant 
them (ISIS) amnesty or something in between, sort of like our immigration laws?
