Donald J. Trump On The Issues

It is election time and I would like to be fair to all the candidates….even the ones that I would not support under any circumstance…..

Yesterday was the Nevada game they call a caucus……Trump won and Cruz took a victory lap for finishing 3rd…..does he realize just how pathetic he looked at that speech?

Enough about yesterday…..

I have had a running exchange with one of my loyal readers (I will withhold his name in case he does not want it to be known) on the candidacy of Trump.  He, my reader, is a supporter and defends him with gusto……..I asked a question about his stand on issues and he sent me a link to his stands on website On The Issues…..

I went there and checked out the stands….I found them a bit vague and with not many answers to my questions….so I decided to go to Trump’s website and see what I could find……see below link if you would like to know his positions and stands…..

After checking out his positions I can say here and now that I could support his tax reform plan……however in essence it is a tax break for the wealthy more so then the working slobs…..he claims it will be a neutral program….hopefully realize that the country needs revenue if it is going to implement his “reforms”….the problem is the middle class will foot the bill for everyone.

His veterans plan is a great idea…..but that is all it is….it will take lots of cash to do what he proposes….where will he get this cash?  I support the idea of his veterans plan just cannot see where he will fund these ideas.

His immigration plan I cannot get behind it at all….he would triple the number of ICE agents…again where will this cash come from?  I know he says he will reform the corruption and such in Washington….but does anyone feel he is capable of doing such a thing?

His trade policy…..I just do not see a way for us to enforce any thing that he says… me it is just another campaign promise….no more workable than other promises from the presidential past…..

Sorry, just my take…..but do NOT take my word for it….I have given my reader all the links I can that will help them understand the positions of Trump and his possible solutions to those problems…..

I have given my readers the issues on Bernie also….I want to be fair to all….I will also be giving other candidates positions and such….you know those alternative candidates that hover around the fringe… there are some good ideas……we just have to look beyond our self-interests and look for the best person to lead this country…..

If you vote then do it for the country and not some stylistic rhetoric…..

  1. My friend, I just realized I know the perfect comment for this issue, and, here it is….



    ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    “Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
    Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!”

    He took his vorpal sword in hand;
    Long time the manxome foe he sought—
    So rested he by the Tumtum tree
    And stood awhile in thought.

    And, as in uffish thought he stood,
    The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
    Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
    And burbled as it came!

    One, two! One, two! And through and through
    The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
    He left it dead, and with its head
    He went galumphing back.

    “And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
    Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
    O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
    He chortled in his joy.

    ’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
    Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
    All mimsy were the borogoves,
    And the mome raths outgrabe.

    When this particular farce is over and done, I shall sing O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!, chortling in my joy….

    1. “But I don’t want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked.
      “Oh, you can’t help that,” said the Cat: “we’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad.”
      “How do you know I’m mad?” said Alice.
      “You must be,” said the Cat, “or you wouldn’t have come here.”

  2. I wonder sometimes how many times Donald Trump looked out a window pensively while contemplating building another giant project and mused silently to himself, “I wonder where the money for all this is going to come from?” And then as he was cutting the ribbons on the finished project that he wondered where the monety to build it all was going to come from, I wonder again how good he must have felt about himself to look a serious problem straight in the eye and gain the advantage and come out a winner?” He certainly has the power to do the same thing for America he has done for The Trump Empire. I have no doubt of it or any trepidations in making the claim. And I would like to point out that America has always been financed by The Middle Class because of all the tax shelters, all the off-shoring of assets and all the special tax exemptions giant corporations can use to make sure they don’t pay a dime in taxes sometimes … GE comes to mind as an example.

    1. Regardless what some want us to believe business and government are not the same thing….see I shared….bet you thought I would not….chuq
