I'm unwilling to support all of Trump's fear-based negativity.

He's afraid of non-whites? Like South Americans, Mexicans, Arabs. He's afraid of people's religious beliefs, eg. Muslims.
Obviously he's afraid of women. Is he afraid of children too, and what they might grow up to become?

He's lost sensibility, like the pied piper leading the good citizens of American off the cliff, instead of focusing on practicalities and ideas that might actually work.

I don't want to dread the future, but the thought of a Trump presidency, fills me with dread.

I don't hate him by any means, and don't deny his gifts. He might do well in a cabinet, or as an advisor in negotiations with pharmaceutical companies, China, and such.

But to base a Presidency on fear .... NO.

Right. If Trump places high taxes on Imports from China, Mexico, Japan, et.al, the manufactures are going to respond by shaking in their shoes, and begin making arrangements to move their companies back to the U.S.


Cut taxes for production inside the borders and increase taxes for goods that come in.

Suddenly it's cheaper to produce in the country that is your #1 customer.

Doesn't seem complicated.


Surely they won't laugh about it, and charge $100. for a toaster that previously cost $45.00.
Nah, that's not going to happen. And it won't effect the stock market.

Wake up and smell the coffee folks.


Take away shipping and tariffs, the price gets closer to the $45.00, possibly lower.

R & D is not a choice,





but a decision on which, is the lesser of the two evils!

I honestly don't believe either one of them are evil. They approach problem solving in very different ways. Clinton is the more practical of the two. Trump is radical; a reactionary.

With Clinton we get the status qua, with Trump we go into unknown territory, and perhaps dangerous as well.

If Hillary will give us status quo, and with Trump, things "might" change, then why wouldn't Trump be the logical choice?

Unless you like the way things are now that is.

Because I'm unwilling to support all of Trump's fear-based negativity. We don't need an administration that will take us into the bowels of negativity, hatred, and fear.

Exactly. Obviously the elite are enjoying the status yo which is they are so upset.

I mean if everything is going great for them why fix it.

You see negativity, others see assertiveness.

I won't try to change your opinion, nor would I try to change anyone's opinion of Trump.

But I will speak out if I can counter some of the misconceptions that people have.

We've been too long with standard politicians with law degrees trying to tell us what is best for us.

One of the major issues we have now is internal. It is our growing further and further apart, and our inability (congress) to work together for the good of the country, and for all our citizens. So we sit stagnating and stewing in our own egos and stubbornness.

Trump is catering to these divisions, and encouraging it. The amount of turbulence in the country now cannot be underestimated. We are sitting on a powder keg. We need a calming force, a healing one.

Trump will NOT make American great again. He's tearing his own party apart (although admittedly it didn't take much), but imagine if he had to power to do it to the entire country, which he is working on as we speak. He plays on people's emotions to get them all riled up, and then does nothing to correct the aftermath. That, my friend, is NOT a leader.

The government has never been responsible for making America great to begin with. Sure, politicians take credit for all the successes. But it's always been the people that have made or not made America great.

The divisiveness we see in DC is contrived. It is theatre for the masses. It gives us a false target for our anger and frustrations.

We bicker back and forth online but in real life, we're all in it together. We all suffer together. We all pay the price for politicians failures. . . . together.

I'm not usually so long winded, so I'll simply close with this; we aren't all that different, we all work, love, live with the same hopes and dreams as everyone else.

The minute we stand together will be the day DC is finally afraid of us.

I couldn't agree more. But I'm afraid everybody is hitching their wagons to the wrong star.

Actually, the article linked to in the OP has little substance, is opinion, and seems to be mostly fear mongering.


I too see no data or info to support this.

The irony is that, by him making this statement, HE could cause a plummet in investments.

"Trump has promised to bulk up the military and bolster the country's infrastructure..."


It needs to be done. Especially the infrastructure part.

I'm sorry that Hillary isn't saying that as she is certainly our next POTUS.

Good luck with that. Obama has been suggesting that since day one to boost the economy and provide jobs, but we have a 'no can do' congress. They no can do anything.

If Trump gets into office, it'll be quite a reality check for him. I'm unsure if he really understands the limits of the powers of the president, but it could just be for popular appeal...oh, I'll do this and I'll fix that.

It will at least be interesting. Anyone who can put their foot down between Bush and Hillary deserves credit. I see DT as a 1-term president.

Please list this claim of "all the Trump fear-based negativity." Seems like this list is getting bigger and bigger and people's fear gets greater and greater. Evidence please.

the only reason a Market Collapse would happen if Trump attains the WH.... is because the power structure that has hijacked the politics and economy & social engineered the directions the masses are led into,,,
will finally have a straw-man to blame for all of their misdeeds & corrupt accounting/employment lies/inflation lies/ GDP lies...

they will craft a suffering savior-that-fails (false Aura) around Trump the level headed businessman, innovator as a Predator Capitalist not immersed in the rules of the Group-Think mentality the Elites button-hole the population into by-way-of- a 1984-ish campaign to dumb-down the common-core mode of educating the voters


you'll likely see a effigy of Trump as a 'Crucified' Trump-on-a-Crucifix... to convince the electors that their (false) Hope is defeated (just as this regime ignores and despises Christianity & the Prophet Jesus as a failed mission....)

Afraid?
No he's actually wants to defend western culture. The greatest culture ever on the planet. A culture great enough to be critical of itself. I don't see anything wrong with defending that culture. Bringing in a demographic that will vote for latin american socialism is a bad idea. Great idea for socialist.
No one takes issue with Japanese or Koreans taking in no refugees and keeping their culture the same it is. I don't hear hitler being hurled at the japanese prime minister.
