I just said I didn't "support" her- I can't, I'm in a different country. I said that those points could be taken either way- it's simply more of a
standard route to be a politician for many years and then become president compared to not being a politician and then suddenly becoming president. Is
that not a fair comment?
How exactly is a 'career in politics' a benefit when it is government that has been dragging the country downhill?
For God's sake, it is a fact! I'm not quite sure how you interpreted all of those things as my glorious endorsement of her? I stated after that "that
can be a pro or con".
I'm no supporter! Personally I find it creepy that it could've gone Bush - Clinton - Bush - Obama - Clinton
or even could've been Bush -
Clinton - Bush - Obama - Bush
! I just feel there's a bit of a problem there.
Politics, no. But this is an anti-incumbency election year. Lack of political savvy is a bonus.
I find that interesting that you seemingly took political knowledge as to mean P.R./ electioneering skills rather than actual historical knowledge of
US/ global politics (apologies if you didn't mean that at all, it just seemed that way) which surely could never be a positive? It's actually
something which I find irritating in some of the very big American news broadcasters (I think you can guess the ones I mean- both sides this is) seem
to discuss politics as if it's simply one big election, constantly discussing drops in popularity ahead of options to solve whatever ordeal is
occurring at that time.
I'm not having a go, that seems to happen in most media outlets who are very much openly supporting one party over another I just think these channels
sometimes seem more interested in their horse winning the race than good things happening to the country.
What Trump *does* have experience with is regulations, bureaucracy, taxation and red tape. As a private business owner of hundreds of businesses he
deals with them every day. My vote for him is in the hopes that he cuts deep into the non-elected, unaccountable section of the government (federal
bureaucracy and agencies) and slims them down.
Thank you! That is EXACTLY the type of answer I wanted! That does however come across as a type of protest vote, an "anything but the status quo" but
I can certainly understand that one. I expect we'll have a similar hope in our next election but it'll likely be a very different type of person- I'm
waiting for the planned drop in corporation tax to 15% here (UK). For comparison it is over 40% in parts of the US. I think it's going to make a lot
of people very angry, I couldn't believe when they dropped it to 20%, I thought that was outrageous but never imagined it could go even lower!
It was bad enough that large corporations weren't being pushed to actually pay any tax after paying practically nothing but soon they'll be allowed to
do that legally and without loophole!
Argh, sorry for the rant but it's barely being mentioned in the media here and is conspicuous with it's absence! I hope that'll be a major issue at
the next general election.
Large corporations influence on the parties has obviously had an effect on your election but I was surprised that people thought Trump would address
that issue- I don't understand what makes people believe he would/ could/ would want to?
