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…..to 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…..in 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…..
