He was given a "small loan" of a Million Dollars by his dad.

Hardly the same as boot-strapped success.



I understand that, but how many people would do what he did if they had a million dollars? My guess would be a very tiny percent. I wish I had the stats of how quick lottery winners run out of money within a few years.

Obviously... I mean, Trump only became a billionaire from his own investments.


I saw Trump on an interview and they asked him if invests in Wall Street and he laughed and basically said it was a suckers game. He said he use to have Bernie Madoff come to his Mar-A-Lago club and say "hey Trump when are you going to invest with me?" He said he never did because he doesn't like stocks, and after what happened with Madoff he was glad he didn't.


I guess to some people, that was a stupid move for him not investing and losing his money... Hillary's family owned a business too, and oddly enough, her dad was a staunch Republican and didn't like democrats. Good man.

Don't be so sure. All that Trump has to do is bring up the deaths in Bhengazi and the subsequent coverup and the email debacle of Hillary.


An instance in which she has not been found guilty of any wrongdoing. If Trump tries to pull that out in a debate, Hillary will simply label him a nutty conspiracy theorist, with support from his previous comments on Obama's birth certificate, and Trump will have nothing to refute it.


Never mind the fact that justice department is dragging their feet on the whole investigation. Some my even say they are running interference for Frosty the Hag.


Never mind that the Republicans have investigated her, i believe, nine times and have never found anything to convict her of any wrongdoing.


So when Frosty the Hag said it was a YouTube video that caused the Benghazi uprising you total believe that too?


'Zactly! These people know she's a liar, they just choose to push it aside and ignore it. Nobody can be that blind without it being on purpose.


I don't get it! Folks are one issue people now, and will turn a blind eye to all sorts of misdeeds just as long as a their group gets their entitlement.


LoL says the guy supporting Trump who has a laundry list of things his flip flopped on, who advocates violating the constitution to implement his "ideas" , who violates peoples constitutional rights to property with "imminent domain"

Give me a break man, again either you are trolling or you have done absolutely NO research on what Trump says and what shreds the Constitution/bill or rights

Yeah it's pure madness to want to have fair trade with China and the rest of the countries ripping us off. It's totally crazy and selfish of me not to want to have muslim terrorist in our country pushing Sharia law. It's the height of insanity for me to expect the 2nd amendment not to be taken away. I am certifiably mad to expect not to have to pay for an invisible carbon credit for a phony global warming scheme. You use the word troll like it's a bodily function it's a tired and worn out word. Give it a rest!


nice talking points, now address how he said he wants to implement all those..............

The way he wants to do it violates the constitution

Rand Paul wants those too and has put forth plans to do so without violating our constitution/bill of rights.....

Try again

Maybe you should actually learn Trumps "policies" instead of his platitutdes

low information voters man, gonna be the death of us


There is the standard comeback line "tell me how he is going to do it?" Do you think I sit in on strategy meetings with Donald Trump each morning? We haven't even had the Primary election and no candidate has laid out in detail how they are going to do anything. All I know is he is a successful business man in New York City where your word means something and if he says he is going to do something then I have to take his word for it until he proves me wrong.
For seven years the Kenyan Communist has wiped his azz with the Constitution where were you then showing all your friends your Hope and Change bumper sticker?

Has anybody stopped and thought about how sad it is that this is the best that America has to choose from?

It seems that anyone with sense, substance and hope for the country, has taken the last train for the coast, the rest have jumped ship.

No wonder people are grabbing at straws. They are willing to risk voting in Trump over electing any of the career politicians left to choose from.

Well I guess we can go out with a song.



The political correctness blather and progressive policies and overwriting Congress with executive orders with a pin & fone is why the people have completely left establishment candidates alone and pushed the popularity of Trump up.

People should get to vote for policies, that way it falls in favor of the majority of those who favor/don't favor each one. But that's just me.

Exactly! Trumps popularity is the direct result of the governments failure to be honest with the people.

On the other hand Bernie may do better than Hillary in a debate against Trump.


All Bernie has to do is stick with a debate on policy and Trump is screwed. Bernie knows his # when it comes to actual policy.


She's been found guilty of lying to Americans, the same people she's wanting to be the leader of. Why should we trust a known liar? Would you befriend a liar? Would you date a liar? Would you put your trust in a liar? Would you marry a liar? Would you be proud to elect your new boss if he was a liar? I understand that a lot of times, Americans are told what they want to hear, but if you know for sure someone is a liar, why would you trust them, much less elect them to the leader of a country? She's not just telling people what they want to hear, she's a known liar. I can still remember when that would spoil your chance at a presidential bid. It's bad when people have become so numb to it that they just say "oh well whatever" and look past it.


Have you ever lied over the course of your life?


Not to the extent that she has. Her lie had an effect on the lives of Americans. Don't sit there and act like she told a little white lie.

Apparently no one since you are so excited that Trump is pissing off all forms of support (GOP, democrats, and the media).


I am, they are all corrupt and deserve to be forgotten.

Not one dem or repub or any MSM is worth their weight in crap.

With allies like those, who needs enemies.

Better to ally with the people, than those you know are against them.


Well said! I finally washed my hands of the Republicans after they were given the midterm election to stop the Kenyan Communist and they dropped the ball.


That's part of the reason for Trump's surge and popularity. Most of those candidates lied to their supporters and kowtowed to the P.o.S in the white house... We gave them a chance and they screwed it up.

That may be true, but according to LSU's standards you still cannot be trusted because you have admitted to being a liar.

This was the point I was building-up to.

Trump is a liar and his lies have had an effect on Americans. He cheated on his wife as well. That is an important personal qualifier that you mentioned earlier, "Would you marry, date a liar", that you extrapolated to the political qualifiers.

So according to your own standards, why would anyone support Trump?

I don't support Clinton in any way, shape or form. So that burden is not mine to address.

What I was responding to was the personal nature of LSU's post; marry a liar, trust or befriend a liar, etc. That was the context in which I asked the question and I did so because we have all lied. So how far can we judge others about their lies before we become hypocrites?


I've never told a lie to that extent. I can't even remember the last time I lied besides telling my kids that I'll call Santa Clause and have their gifts not delivered if they don't straighten up. I'm very open and have nothing to hide. If I screw up, I admit it. If I feel like I could make a decision that might cost someone their life or harm, I take another course of action. I look ahead at the consequences of my actions, because of that, I don't have anything to lie about or hide. Oh, and I lied to my fiance when I told her that I only spent $100.00 on her for Christmas. If she was a liar that wasn't trustworthy I wouldn't be with her.

I know her exposed lies aren't enough to turn you from voting for her if she's the candidate, but I can see the light on that one. She's a liar, she didn't answer the cries for help, and she lied to the families of those killed in Benghazi and for that, she deserves a prison cell.

Not everybody can be like Hillary and turn one thousand dollars into one hundred thousand dollars in cattle futures, or leave the White House broke and buy a house in New York and end up having a global fund with her partner in crime worth over 150 million dollars.
