So your way of exposing a bias is posting a article form other biased sites? Don't you see the irony in that?

What has trump done for the working class? He ships his manufacturing overseas and had immigrants build his buildings...

You speak as if you speak for the entire state state of SC with your massive generalizations. Like accusing all socialist of littering, that one made me laugh. I'm sure you have a story about how you saw it happen and you just knew the person who did it was a no good commie.

He employs close to 23,000 of them. Compare that to any other candidate.

That question is usually asked by those who think socialism is the answer.
When people want their government to "do something" for the working class, what they usually mean is that they want the government to "take care of" the working class, which leads to the government owning the working class and the working class being dependent upon the government.

Trump will make the economy better, bring manufacturing back to the US, etc. as detailed in his policies, which will enable the working class to do something for themselves, like get good paying jobs, start businesses, etc.

To be fair Trump has said it himself that he has no problem buying people to get what he wants when it comes to politicians. Hence, buying endorsements from people wouldn't be such a big leap. Note I'm not saying that is the case, but surely it can't be dismissed.

However to counter, he also has past business partners and biographers that have not said very nice things about him and dealing with him.

So I see this as a wash at best.

The thing that I can't get passed on trump is his sincerity or lack of logical reasoning , exposed by his stance on immigration and that wall .

The majority of illegals that are coming here is for work provided by AMERICAN companies. The biggest employers and offenders of hiring illegals are some of the biggest lobbyist (Agriculture,Construction, and the Hospitality industry ) and two of those are industries that Trump is associated with.

You want to stop the majority of illegals coming here:

1. Prosecute the American companies hiring illegals and fine them 50K per illegal hired. Take away their incentive to come and they won't. The Canadians have no incentive to come here illegally hence they aren't coming and hence no need for a WALL.

1. Our economy is tightly intertwine with illegal immigration and stopping them overnight would likely crash our economy.

That is why politicians like Trump are not looking to fix the issue but rather capitalize on a virtual crisis by building a Fence that will cost billions and billions to maintain and not really address or stop the problem. I'm sure despite Trump being in the construction industry that he is likely not going to get a piece of that pie.

Trump didn't cover the real fix or the real consequence of doing it . Instead he is proposing a money making scheme that doesn't address the real issue.

However, in reality the only candidate that I saw that actually passed my illegal immigration political litmus test in this election was Bernie Sanders. While I don't agree with socialism or big gov't as a libertarian I can't dismiss him pointing out the truth unlike all the other lying front runners (Clinton,Cruz, and Trump)
