I just want a real person, not a super fake politically correct liar.

Trump is the biggest liar out of all the GOP hopefuls. 62% of the time he opens his mouth he is lying about something.


Trump talks just like everyone I know in regular life.

Everyone you know talks like a third grade bully on the playground?


These politicians aren't used to it, which shows just how far removed they are from us.

These politicians are used to having an intelligent debate with their opponent and when it comes to Trump intelligence goes out the door.
He is clueless about foreign policy.
He is clueless about the Constitution.
He is clueless about immigration.
Trump has no place running for President if a person wants America to totally collapse then Trump is their man.

The last nail in the coffin of democracy would come from republicans. "Polarization" is just a substitute word for forcing your will on others usurping the vote. Can you not take responsibility for the failure of your philosophy and move on?

I'm saying Trump is the only real choice you guys have.

Between Trump and Hilliary it's a toss up as to which one is the worst choice.


You need someone capable of turning things around and who is not a coward.

The banks always bailed him out he doesn't know how to turn anything around.


Someone very crafty in business.

Multiple bankruptcies and multiple defaulted loans shows he isn't that crafty.


He will make China pay for what it has done to America.

How will he do that? Will he stop having his cheap junk made there?

Hes done nothing wrong when you look at his 4 bankruptcy claims... It's the name of the game and that's the way you stay alive...
At a personal worth of over 4 billion or over 9 billion if you take his own word for it...Well that infact says he knows what he's doing...
When you speak of his borrowing of money you must also realize that lenders love to give it to him...
That speaks for itself also...
None of the bankruptcy claims were personal...
I wouldn't want to say too much... but do you think Trump does not know about China's housing bubble?
It won't hurt the world like the bubble in the US,but it's going to cripple them...
When that happens you start taking back your country piece by piece...

I will never understand why anyone fears this guy, he is an idiot that attracts other idiots.

I mean who would support a guy that has no actual plan but to insult, make ridiculous claims or talking out of his butt.

The majority will see him for what he is and simply not vote for him and all he will accomplish is splitting republican votes.

It is time for common sense to solving problems not decisions based on special interest monies.

The world has become a 3 minute platform for the next pumped up news story.



This is what I actually like about Trump the best. He treats me like I am literate and have a brain, not like I am a puppet to be moved around at their will. They don't like their electorate, and treat us all as if we are little more than idiots to be played for their benefit.

Trump doesn't do that. He periodically posts detailed statements on issues like this:




Let me be clear—I am pro-life. I support that position with exceptions allowed for rape, incest or the life of the mother being at risk. I did not always hold this position, but I had a significant personal experience that brought the precious gift of life into perspective for me. My story is well documented, so I will not retell it here. However, what I will do with the remaining space is express my feelings about life, and the culture of life, as we approach the 43nd anniversary of the Roe v. Wade.

I build things. There is a process involved in building things. We tap into a lot of disciplines with engineering being one of the most important. The rules for putting structures together are as strict as are the rules of physics. These rules have stood the test of time and have become the path to putting together structures that endure and are beautiful. America, when it is at its best, follows a set of rules that have worked since our founding. One of those rules is that we, as Americans, revere life and have done so since our Founders made it the first, and most important, of our “inalienable” rights.

Over time, our culture of life in this country has started sliding toward a culture of death. Perhaps the most significant piece of evidence to support this assertion is that since Roe v. Wade was decided by the Supreme Count 43 years ago over 50 million Americans never had the chance to enjoy the opportunities offered by this country. They never had the chance to become doctors, musicians, farmers, teachers, husbands, fathers, sons or daughters. They never had the chance to enrich the culture of this nation or to bring their skills, lives, loves or passions into the fabric of country. They are missing, and they are missed.

The Supreme Court in 1973 based their decision on imagining rights and liberties in the Constitution that are nowhere to be found. Even if we take the court at its word, that abortion is a matter of privacy, we should then extend the argument to the logical conclusion that private funds, then, should subsidize this choice rather than the half billion dollars given to abortion providers every year by Congress. Public funding of abortion providers is an insult to people of conscience at the least and an affront to good governance at best.

If using taxpayer money to facilitate our slide to a culture of death was not enough, the 1973 decision became a landmark decision demonstrating the utter contempt the court had for federalism and the 10th Amendment. Roe v. Wade gave the court an excuse to dismantle the decisions of state legislatures and the votes of the people. This is a pattern that the court has repeated over and over again since that decision. Perhaps Roe v. Wade became yet another incidence of disconnect between the people and their government.

We are in the middle of a presidential political cycle and votes will be cast in just days. The citizens of this nation will have the chance to vote for candidates that are aligned with their individual worldviews. It is my hope that they will choose the builder, the man who has the ability to imagine the greatness of this nation. The next President must follow those principles that work best and that reinforce the reverence Americans hold for life. A culture of life is too important to let slip away for convenience or political correctness. It is by preserving our culture of life that we will Make America Great Again.

You can agree or disagree, but he talks about how he feels, how he thinks, why he takes the stances he does and what his stances are. He has a website that is very clear on the things he wants to do, and how he plans to accomplish those things.

I enjoy being treated as if I can make my own decisions, I enjoy being treated like an intelligent human being who is informed and pays attention to more than a 30 second sound bite, unlike all the other candidates.

I support Trump, I like his positions on most issues, some I disagree with but as a whole, I find him to be the best candidate on the issues, the best candidate as far as a leader who can stand up to nay sayers in order to accomplish things in office, I find him overall, the best for the country. And that, is what matters in a president.

Anyone who says Trump has no stance on the issues, are allowing the media to pull their strings and treat them like ignoramuses rather than using their brain and looking into what his stances are. I personally prefer the strategy that treats me like the intelligent human being I am.

Plus, I like his new picks for SCOTUS, I like his answers on Sessions test and he is the only one who has fully published his answers and/or even answered them.



Sessions’ questionnaire consisted of five straightforward questions addressing immigration, trade, and crime in the United States.

The first candidate to reply to Sessions’ questionnaire was GOP frontrunner Donald J. Trump. In his response, Trump declares, “After my inauguration, for the first time in decades, Americans will wake up in a country where their immigration laws are enforced.”

Trump’s full, unedited answers to the Sessions’ test are below:
Trumps Answers to Sessions Questions to all the candidates - Link

I am looking for the other candidates answers, but not finding any of the others' yet. I am hoping I have just not looked in the right places. But Trumps answers were spot on, in my opinion.

I'm intelligent, I am literate, and that is exactly how Trump treats me. The media, he just plays like a fiddle - I respect that.

It is rather sad that the majority of you are simply using the soundbites about Trump and running with it. Saying this...

These politicians are used to having an intelligent debate with their opponent and when it comes to Trump intelligence goes out the door. To think Donald Trump is not intelligent is just laughable. Sounds more like jealously each time it comes out.

He is clueless about foreign policy. - Not true. This guy makes deals with the people that run countries, meaning, their banks. He knows what goes on.

He is clueless about the Constitution. - Not true. He is a strong supporter of the constitution, including the 2nd amendment. He is a CWP holder and gun advocate. NRA...

He is clueless about immigration. - no, he is simply saying what politicians will not. We cannot sustain it anymore

Trump has no place running for President if a person wants America to totally collapse then Trump is their man. - Collapse America? A man who has spent his life building wants to 'crumble' America. That is so ignorant.

You have never once looked at his website or else you would not spew this garbage....

Trump is nothing like me. I don't talk like him , I don't think like him and he does not represent my "values" in any way.

The OP can be summed up pretty nicely: "Trump is an asshole. Hey, I'm an asshole too! Trump is just like us."

Give me a break.


Well, you are an introvert, and he is not so I guess this makes sense! Would you want to run the country? Didn't think so.

Great post Kitty!

He does speak to the people at a higher level of intelligence, not assuming we all need sound bites and to be lead. He doesn't need a teleprompter because he speaks from what he knows, not a script. He makes some blunders because of this, but that's what makes him more human and not a politician monkey.

I like the fact you pointed out that he is the only one that answered the Sessions questionaire.

Thank you!

I personally find it an affront to my intelligence everytime these candidates simply repeat media punch lines against Trump, treating me as if I don't know what Trump actually said, or where he actually stands.

More and more, I find myself terribly offended at how these candidates and even the RNC treats the electorate! Like we are nothing but idiots who hang on every punch line and know nothing else, as if we are play things and not their voting base!

I don't know, maybe most people enjoy being treated like that, but I don't!

That is not saying much when Trump talks to his potential voters like a 4th grader.


When Donald Trump announced his presidential campaign, he decried the lack of intelligence of elected officials in characteristically blunt terms.

“How stupid are our leaders?” he said. “How stupid are they?”

But with his own choice of words and his short, simple sentences, Trump’s speech could have been comprehended by a fourth-grader. Yes, a fourth-grader.



The Republican candidates — like Trump — who are speaking at a level easily understood by people at the lower end of the education spectrum are outperforming their highfalutin opponents in the polls. Simpler language resonates with a broader swath of voters in an era of 140-character Twitter tweets and 10-second television sound bites, say specialists on political speech.

Please read my previous post. Trump talks to the lower reaches of intelligence.

What does that tell you?

Funny as hell. He can twist them up anytime he wants.

lol, "good thing he has politics, nobody would hire him".


wtf! Go Trump!

That he is smart is what it says to me.

Is Your Business Writing Too Smart for Its Own Good?

So what reading level should you aim for? Even if the majority of your audience has graduated from high school, you don’t necessarily want to target 12th grade. The reading level of your audience is constantly fluctuating and two people of the same age and same educational background may still read at different levels.

Aim for a level of around 6th or 7th grade for maximum impact. Not only does this allow you to reach audience members who may not be the strongest at reading comprehension, it’s simple enough to get your message across quickly. Even audience members who read at higher levels will respond better to copy written at a 6th or 7th grade level.

When writing at this reading level, be sure to incorporate the following techniques:
www.printwand.com...

The average Facebook posts run at 5th grade level, advertising at a lower level also - and this is recommended!

So Trump speaking in the media at a 4th grade level, is about the right thing to do. He could go to the 5th or 6th grade level, but this is working for him and he is connecting and engaging people, including the media themselves, so I don't worry about it.

Let's face it, he gets your attention! Then more intelligent people come along and explain it to you!

Excellent deflection!

What it actually tells us is that the less intelligent and dumbed-down the message is, the more it resonates with people.

Two points here.

First, these people are pretty much counting on the fact that people are dumb, and you are defending the people calling you dumb.

Second, who cares about Facebook? It's for teenagers and self-righteous narcissists.



Let's face it, he gets your attention! Then more intelligent people come along and explain it to you!


I've been waiting quite some time for someone intelligent to explain why they support Trump, but they have yet to materialize.

Seems to me this is the same sort of blind infatuation we saw with Obama and his Hope and Change.

How many times have we heard Trump has no policies, no stances, nothing to say to the public, that he is running on air. Yet time and time again we show his policies, his stances, what he has to say to the public, and that is running on a very sincere platform but still people continue in the same clueless rhetoric.

Not that I think Trump as being particularly religious, but Jesus said

Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things--and the things that are not--to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast

I'd say it seems like good policy, and its working quite well for Trump.

That has nothing to do with me or what I have said.

That is true. It's working well with people that are uneducated, angry and lower income earners.

So I guess, as you have stated in other threads, all of the smart people are voting for Bernie, right? As far as Facebook, it is where the majority get their news. A government backed propaganda machine. To put on the blinders.

This is not a blind infatuation like Obama. Obama won the black vote and it was a blame the GOP all the way to the white house year. How we won in 2012 is beyond me. The country was asleep.

You should care more about the meaning and content of the sometimes simple words someone can say instead of analyzing it for grammatical errors. People who talk with SAT words all the time are pretentious. Lighten up. Relax. Bust some balls....
