While the media has been showing us all the faults of Trump and allegations they have proof that Trump is failing, I have to wonder how much is hype against Trump and accuracy of any of these polls which come down as proof of Trump’s demise.

Each day I read about Hillary’s failing heath and more scandal about with revelations of her doings as well as the complicity of the administration to** fix** the election.

In a “normal” election during “normal” times Hillary wouldn’t have a chance but there is nothing normal about what’s going on during this election. The lefties are out of the closet & have demonstrated their almost total control of the media. I’ve watched a lot of elections in my life & I’ve never seen anything like it. About 75% of the time that I sign on to the web the first story I see is a negative one on Trump. In a way that’s good because it shows how afraid they are about losing this election. But the problem is that people can indeed be controlled by all of the negative propaganda. Who knows how many votes are going to be lost because people don’t look below the surface of what they are seeing.

Funny but one of the things that I & a lot of other Americans like about him is his willingness to speak off the cuff & tell people what he is really thinking. Yet many view his statements as proof that he isn’t ready to become president. He certainly couldn’t come across as a smooth speaker like Obama & that turns people off because that’s not what they are used to. I can see how that happens because he isn’t what I’m used to either. What I’m used to is wonderful speeches delivered by a polished politician who then delivers on not a single thing after he is elected or what’s worse moves us further toward socialism. So I’m going to vote for him because he is at least a chance to change the way this country is moving. In the end though I believe that the people get what they want & if most of the people want a 50% tax rate, that’s what we deserve.

[/quote] You already HAVE a 50% tax rate. It’s just hard to figure out when so much is hidden in the fine print of your receipts. All working Americans work from January 1st to mid-June JUST TO PAY THEIR TAX BILLS at all levels. Income tax, FICA, property taxes, sales taxes, license or permit “fees” (really a tax allowing one to do certain things), excise taxes, PLUS, as a consumer, YOU are paying the corporate taxes assessed on manufacturers’ products. (Such taxes are added into the price of the products.) Vote for Hillary and you’ll be paying 75% in taxes.

We currently have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. Even Obama said he’d lower it during the 2012 campaign. Of course he has not kept his word, which normal for him. Part of the reason why companies don’t bring back the capital that they earn abroad is that tax rate. It hurts our investment in capital assets and job creation.

Now we have Hillary who wants to RAISE the corporate tax rate. She’s going to penalize companies that move jobs overseas, and she is going to spent the tax revenue on B.S. projects like windmills and solar panals.

The part about penalizing companies that moves jobs overseas runs counter to Hillary’s global utopia. Isn’t the world supposed to be changed into a place where there are no longer countries? There would be no boarders in Hillay’s and Obama’s world. Therefore moving jobs around, just as people can move around with need to worry about visas or passports, should be perfectly fine.

Sure, but look at all the people that fell for the smooth talking salesman. They bought into everything he said just because of how he said it.

Trump got his base based on his crude off the cuff speaking style. Problem is, he is having a hard time bringing over those that are left that just don’t like it and are turned off by it.

Though that would be marginal, not actual.

Taxes aren’t actually our biggest problem; that would be regulations. Even the New York Times, in their 6-part story on the Obama Administration’s legacy, have kicked it off with the title “regulator-in-chief”.


#7

Does it really matter whether it is the alligators or the mosquitos that ruin the domestic economy and job market?
The fact is Hillary and Obama are anti-business and anti-capitalists, unless in Hillary’s case she is selling her government influence. In that case she is what I would call a government influence entrepreneur, which is fancy way of saying that she is a crook, just like Spiro Agnew, except on a much, much larger scale.

Now we have Hillary who wants to RAISE the corporate tax rate.
.
Totally understandable that she would want to raise corporate taxes. Democrats (or at least their leaders) can’t fathom how businesses must work. Businesses have to compete within their city, state, the whole country & even sometimes globally. They have to improve their product or services constantly & that sometimes means massive reinvestment into the business. And honestly they don’t believe that the person who started the business, investors in it or even stockholders deserve to make money on their time, sweat, or investments. To them every business should break even with all profits going to the workers (socialism). In theory that doesn’t work well, in practice it’s a great way to cause businesses to fail.
.
Democrats want more money from businesses & more money from citizens. What we should all agree to give them is a boot up their butts.

It does, because at least taxes are relatively transparent. You can pretty much figure upfront what they’ll cost you.

Regulations are far more insidious, have flown far under the radar, and far more serve the interests of big businesses. The very thing the left claims to hate.

Along with Corporate welfare… which, of course, Hillary is all for, given her platform to reinstate the Ex-Im bank.

The fact is Hillary and Obama are anti-business and anti-capitalists, unless in Hillary’s case she is selling her government influence. In that case she is what I would call a government influence entrepreneur,

And Trump is a cronyist entrepreneur, the private-flip side of the same coin. I’d be more open to him if I thought he was cronyist looking for “redemption”; wanting to destroy the very system he benefited from, and now recognizes harms the country, but I’m pretty sure he’s only thinking of how he can turn it even further to his own interest.


#10

I don’t believe Trump EVER had any idea about actually BECOMING President, AS. The idea that he MIGHT is something that only recently came to him and it’s fired his imagination. What he PLANS to do IF elected he’s only now starting to formulate.

It’s really kind of human nature. Even though conservatives generally acknowledge that the media is controlled by the left, they believe every word IF it agrees with what they think.
My sister in law is a perfect example of that human nature. Anything that she hears about that she doesn’t agree with she blames the Republicans. Damned interesting because she is a fairly smart lady. Being from a small back woods area she has over the years been indoctrinated into that line of thinking because everyone around her thinks exactly the same. She is like all of them in that they “know” certain things so they never bother to actually research any of them to see if they are true. Like I say, interesting.
