I give up.

If you all honestly think that Trump wants to bring back slavery and kill kittens and inter Japanese citizens, then there is absolutely nothing I can say that would change your mind.

smh


Please quote where I said anything even remotely close to what you just said. *crickets*

If I wanted to, I could bring up some of the anti-Islamic things Trump has said which do kind of go along with interning people like we did the Japanese...

I won't though, because this thread isn't about that.

I don't think any of that.

I think he could have said it much better than he did. It's been pointed out why some of us think that. Not sure what the big issue is, frankly.

It isn't what you've specifically said, but you sure as hell implied it.

Because this will get twisted out of context and before Sunday is over, pundits will be saying that Trump wants to bring back Jim Crow, inter Muslims, and deny civil rights to everyone from women to gays.

...and anyone with a modicum of common sense will know that for the utter silliness that it is.

Oh good heavens, when did common sense ever play a part in American politics?

More often then we fear it does.

Otherwise Mondale would have been President.

Yeah post WW2 40s and 50s when the US got rid of its military. China was taken over by the communists and then invaded Tibet, the Arab Israeli wars began, Cuba was taken over by communists, the US and Soviets were propping up and launching coups across Central and South America, wars were breaking out all over the planet in the old colonies, Germany, Europe, Vietnam and Korea were all cut in half, and the US was so weak that North Korea invaded the South and the US forces Task Force Smith were driven to the brink of defeat. The US had the highest corporate tax rate in the World at 50%, income tax was much much higher with the top earner paying between 75 and 90%.

And how about a little thing called McCarthyism? Do not know what that was? Think of the Patriot Act but, many many times worse. The World was being over run by Soviet backed forces and the US was on the defensive every where.

Frankly people were so scared in 1950's that they make the fear of terrorism today look inconsequential in comparison.

Can't believe the mods had such a large part in such a #post thread that got derailed from page 1. Maybe they should be doing their job instead of adding fuel to the fire


The moderators here administrate and contribute as members! They are members. They are entitled to discussion as much as anyone else. This is a community driven forum.

Your wanting to silence the moderators of discussion based on your disagreement with them is not unlike Trump's proclivity to do such with voices he doesn't like!

Yes, and life spans were shorter in the 50's and there wasn't the medical advances in the 50's. Trumps going to have us die earlier.

Trump is going to bring back small pox.

Trump wants to charge higher tariffs on goods made outside the US.

It would be in a companies best interest to start manufacturing inside the US again.



And that will do nothing but hurt the middle class and poor who will have to pay higher prices for things at places like Walmart and similar stores

Tariffs would just make it worse, you trump supporters really need to research the effect of the crap he's proposing instead of just parroting it back like a drone.

Smoot Holly. Look it up

Tariffs will just destroy the lower class even more. They are barely making enough as it is to pay for what they have.


Once again, you look at one part of the equation in parenthesis and think you have it solved. Every single major corporation knows exactly what needs to happen in order to be profitable again producing in the USA. Every single Federal Rep knows this. The problem is, is that the replacement industries, namely the legal and incarceration industries , contribute the lion's share to the reps that matter now. An economic upturn reduces crime, reduces incarceration, reduces need for things like prisons and prison guards and cops and LAWYERS. Guess which profession most members of the government are? Yep, lawyers. Guess who their pals are,,,other freaking lawyers. This whole scene is one big scam

I stopped reading pages ago when they got completely off topic and started instigating arguments. Welcome to ATS?

Uh...what about the trade deals that our 'government ' made that basically screwed us all? It's really simple...terminate those deals, tarriff imports, heavily tax overseas labor, and watch those industries return


It's not quite that simple...
Your hoping that these mega companies worth somewhere in the multi billions are going to be seduced by lower corporate tax. Some might.

Then stomping down on a major source of their labor by implementing heavy taxes and returning to tariffs?
You then expect them not to only return most of the blue collar and white collar jobs back to the U.S, you want increase pay,benefits,health insurance,retirement benefits,vacation days all this and more that a young Philippino women and Chinese kid could do for far less than that.

These companies will take the financial burden of levied taxes and continue with out sourcing labor.
It simply isn't worth the time or money to bring them back.

I'm sorry.

I wonder if Soviet Russia would admit that if it wasn't for the lend lease program and the continued war on the western front that they probably would have been overrun by Hitler and company? See how this works?


Except they wouldn't have been. Russia could have beaten Germany on their own. Everyone else just lessened the casualties and cost.

" Sure, the late 40's and 50's were "great"...

If you were a white male. "

Don't you think that comment could be considered a Racist Remark ? Hmm....

Its only called a racist remark when someone has no arguments to back there claim up, both sides of the political spectrum use the racist bit way too much.
