I’ve already been called ignorant and uninformed because I support Donald Trump. Those who have called me that haven’t offered anything but childish snipes at everything I’ve typed. This thread is NOT about that and I’m not going to respond to anyone who wants to start yet another flame war.
Very simple. If you support Donald Trump, cool. If you DON’T support him, you either have another Republican candidate you support or you want Hillary elected. Here is where you put up or shut up.
NAME YOUR CANDIDATE. And that name has to be based on what he/she stands for, NOT just because in your opinion he/she is better than Trump. Bush43 was better than Clinton. Dole was better than Clinton. McCain was better than Obama. Romney was better than Obama. Guess who America got stuck with. So you have to name the REASONS why you can’t wait to go out and pull the lever for that candidate.
I’ll go first.
Obviously from my avatar, the star of The Apprentice is my choice. Let me count the ways:
- The economy: Trump will do the things business-wise that are necessary to expand the jobs market. (Of course, he already has created more jobs than all Democrat presidents in the last century combined, so that should qualify him over the Democrat wannabes.)
You ask WHAT ARE THOSE THINGS. Fair question:
a. Carl Ichan put in charge of China. That gets us a better deal from that country right off the bat. China is a HUGE market for goods and services. Why could that market before goods and services made in America? Ichan can make it happen or THE DONALD can use a little legislative muscle to make them play ball.
b. Ending corporate inversion. Lower taxes on corporations here and they don’t move overseas to save on taxes. We have the highest corporate tax in the world. Bringing those companies home is an instant injection of trillions of dollars in our economy and in the federal budget.
c. Ending Obamacare. It is a job killer and a budget buster. It costs a fortune and it is costing jobs. Wipe it out and companies start hiring again.
Illegal Immigration: It is costing this country TRILLIONS of dollars in welfare costs, health care costs, justice system costs, etc and it is making our elections less and less constitutional. There is a flood of drugs coming in the southern border. Trump will build a wall and that stops. Mexico will pay for the wall. I believe they will give him a check, but if they don’t he can get it out of increased fees for goods coming across the border. He can have that money in no time. After building the wall, he will get rid of the illegal alien CRIMINALS, the rapists, murderers, drug dealers. They are the first to go. This also will include the illegal alien inner city gangs. He will also defund Sanctuary cities, which are where a lot of illegals are. Don’t worry, he’ll have enough Republican votes in Congress for that.
Health care. Ending Obamacare by itself would be the most positive thing by itself. But Trump has had enough experience in dealing with insurance companies to know that federal and state law gives them a monopoly in the states that probably is in violation of the Sherman Act. He would be able to FORCE insurance companies to compete across state lines rather than have their own turf per state. Economics 101, healthy competition ALWAYS makes the price come down. He has other plans as well, including medical savings accounts. In this, he would be foolish not to put Vice President Ben Carson in charge of overseeing that bill for Congress.
Middle East. Trump will take us into Iraq to TAKE THE OIL. Period. We earned it. It’s ours. Our soldiers have died for it. Right now ISIS is using it to finance their war. Cut them off. Sell that oil to pay us back for the expenses involved with saving that country’s ass earlier on. It’s only fair.
Other foreign policy. Trump is on a first name basis with the most powerful leaders in the most powerful countries in the world. No other candidate in the race can say that.
Getting Congress to play ball: VERY easy. Trump will have agendas that BOTH parties will jump at the chance to support. For the threat of tariffs aimed at Mexico and China, he’ll get union leaders to FORCE Democrats in Congress to go along with it. For getting rid of Obamacare, he’ll have 100 percent of Republicans wanting that. Plus, remember that Trump KNOWS all the big money lobbyists who contributed to every Congressman. He’ll get his way.
Those are the important issues. The Economy, Ending Obamacare, Illegal Immigration, Middle East, Other foreign policy, Getting Congress to play ball.
Don’t argue those points. I’ll just ignore those posts.
How will YOUR candidate stack up? On those issues, where does YOUR candidate stand and how will he/she be able to accomplish that?
