I thought we’d already been over that one. That he embellishes upon what news reporters report, why is he responsible? (ahem)
That, and the chances of him making good on much of his campaign rhetoric is nil - Mexico will pay for the border wall. Really? He’s going to round up 12 million people, do something unknown with their property (confiscate it, impose KELO/imminent domain or what?) and march them out of the country. Really? He is going to see that Obamacare is repealed, promising to then replace it with ANOTHER government imposed plan. Just what we need - Trumpcare.
Easy peezy getting Mexico to pay for the border wall. That one, too, has been covered a million times. So has getting illegals to self-deport.
As for Obamacare, he does call it a disaster. I’m still unsure what, exactly he plans to do about it.
Trump has done a masterful job of hitting on issues that have us all pissed off. He then often proposes over-the-top solutions designed to play to that anger and to occupy the news cycle. (ie: See the first sentence of this post).
Trump is NOT full of sh*t on everything - his proposals to reduce corporate taxes, regulations and to reverse corporate inversion and getting their “offshore” money back in America is sound.
No, it is NOT! THAT is my one main reason for keeping him as far away from trying to solve our economic problems as possible!
And, I will admit that someone who should be as sound of mind of world and home economics as the world trader as he is, he’s got me absolutely baffled at how UNsound his solutions are.
But, he’s not the only candidate proposing this. Trump is not the only candidate who would move to secure the border and reject ME refugees. The only candidate that hasn’t pledged to sh*t-can Obamacare is Kasich. Trump is not the only candidate proposing strengthening the military and raising our influence around the globe.
You’re all over the place here.
Yes, Cruz, too, has talked about strengthening our border, ‘fixing’ illegal immigration, (admittedly, don’t know the specifics), and I completely agree with his tactics regarding letting the military taking control over what’s going on in the Middle East, and our ‘war’ with terrorists. His spot on RIGHT about that.
(Although I haven’t heard Cruz actually say it, I’ve no doubt that he’d favor strengthening our military wherever needed.
Honestly, I have to take a moment to envision how he’d go about restoring our kinship with our allies. Really. I’d have to take a step back on that one where Trump is concerned, too.)
Do I want a “shoot-from-the-hip”/say the first thing that comes to mind Trump in control of our military? A man who has no clue whatsoever regarding the tribal/cultural relationships in the ME? A man who has ZERO knowledge about Sunnis, Shiites or Kurds and the various terrorist groups at play in the ME and North Africa? I’m not convinced that I do. Yes, he can seek guidance from “experts”, but personal ignorance rarely intersects with wisdom.
Don’t know as that excites me as much as it does you, but it does give pause for thought.
Frankly, I think Trump will likely get the nomination. If you think I have reservations about it, you would be correct.
I think Rubio will get the nomination. If you think I have reservations about that, you’d be understating it by a mile.
