You know I can kind of understand why you feel the way you do, but in my opinion, the social issues, while important, need to take a backseat to the global issues for a while, we need to get right on the world scene or the social issues will be the least of our worries.

With our current trade deficits, we need someone who will renegotiate our trade deals. As of right now, they only benefit China.


Donald Trump does not know how to negotiate. He bullies the people he does business with, and if they do not yield to him, Trump agrees to their terms then breaks the contract.

No world leader trusts his word.

Trump has no experience in global affairs. Lending your name to a casino in the Emirates is hardly diplomacy.

Given the YUGE backlog of pending legal cases Trump is involved in, those investigations won't go away if Trump does get elected.


He does have cases against him but here's the thing: So does she!

Last time I checked there were over 20 FOIA lawsuits and the tea leaves are saying her and the SD are going to lose every single one. These are civil cases, not involving crimes so her and her staff answering no comment or pleading the 5th is futile. You have to defend yourself in civil cases otherwise you lose and have to pay your accuser's legal fees along with fines. She is paying the legal fees right now of all her staff at the SD and the Foundation. Financially it is taking a toll on her and nobody is talking about that aspect. The Foundation income has also dried up. Where is she going to get the money to keep this thing up. It could go on for years, 10's of millions in legal fees and that is just her bill. That is not counting the bills of Judicial watch. It would bankrupt her. No way she can keep this going.

I have to agree with you on the experience part but I would think he would surround himself with people who have that experience, Hillery has the experience but that heart is as black as coal and cold as the north pole, all she sees is money for herself and that experience does not show good judgment

He can surround himself with good people but it won't matter if he won't listen to them. His campaign staff has been a revolving door.

On that we will have to wait and see, with the left, we have an idea how that will work out.

You realize thats how China operates? Reseach about buying companies in China and see how draconian the process is compared to a Chinese entitiy buy property abroad.

I'm sorry, but you "pist" won't have any effect on me. Considering that Hillary helped with the current TTP that is in place, we need hard negotiators.

Trump is a hard negotiator. The man is a billionaire, he knows how to get there. Don't be silly DJ.

Of course that was the expected reply, so easily deduced.

I don’t think he will solve even half of the problems he claims to be able to. Trump and his side are the start of a movement like he says, and it’s a foot in the door for those who want to get rid of all this scum and corruption in this government and start operating like the great country we are .No, I don’t think Trump is the answer, He is the start to maybe another stronger party with a brand new view and list of priorities for the betterment of the country. Trump has opened a lot of eyes to the actual corruption in D.C.. He is not the personality I would like to see in office, this whole campaign is run like a reality show and I hate that! But I think we need change and I think this ideology, I think I’ll call it, will grow and let Trump start it. What we have now is not working and it wont change with Hillery. All Hillery knows is corruption just look.

I think you packed it all up and put it in a nut shell.

People need to turn off the auto pilot. How many people actually feel that the government has done anything to make our country better or anything that has improved the chances of our children having a better life than we had?

When I was a youngun, our dreams and goals were simple. Own your own home, own your car, be able to put food on the table, be able to put nice clothes and shoes on your children, and have a little savings in the mattress for a rainy day.

They started teaching us about savings in grade school. Every week we brought in our pennies to school, bought our stamps and placed them in our little booklet. We beamed with pride when we filled a book with stamps and received our bond certificate. All the grown folk fill their books with S&H green stamps and Top Value stamps, saving for those items that were dreamed about, but were not on the list of necessities. We were taught that hard work and conscientious savings were the key to a successful life.

Anyone hear children talking about saving today? Our society is all about buying and spending. Don't worry if you don't have any money. You can buy on credit and by the time you have paid it off, you will have paid for the item five times. Welfare was something that only the truly needy received. No self respecting person would accept it. It was like wearing a scarlet letter, it was a great embarrassment for the parent and even more so for the children.

The truly poor were assisted by the churches and neighbors. There was no health insurance. All hospitals were nonprofit and were not expected to produce a profit. Doctors worked out of their homes and came to yours if needed. The States reimbursed hospitals for their expenses and cost of operation. Neighbors assisted those in the community that were old or sick.

Sounds backwards and old fashioned? Sounds like something from a fairy tale, yet that is the way it was, and it worked better than our society does now. We had fewer police officers. Everyone knew them because they lived in your community, and it was rare that they were ever called. Yes, Mayberry was just about every town back then. We had a few Macon and Tipton counties in the mix, but it was usually worse for the strangers that stumbled into town than for the residents, most times.

I am not saying that we need to move backwards. I am saying that we need to move forward, but the path we are on is not the right one. We see where our government has led us. Why would we continue on this path until we fall over the edge and into the abyss? Voting for Hillary is the same thing as telling the government that we love what they have done to us and we want them to keep on doing it.

We keep saying we want change, well we will never have change if we keep voting in the same corrupt professional politicians that are being paid to support those that suppress us. We aren't stupid. We are afraid, complacent, and deceived. Trump and Hillary are opposite sides of the same coin. You can call heads or you can call tails, they will still be holding the same coin in their hands. The only thing we can do is take the wager and let them know we know the game is rigged by voting for the pony they aren't backing and put the least amount of money into.

Trump is the superior candidate. He keeps getting progressively better at anything he does, while Hillary keeps getting progressively worse.

By the Gods, I hope that woman don't win. Heres a personal story, 12 years ago I started my current job, free insurance with a $10.00 copay, now I pay about $800 a month and a $6000 DEDUCTABLE I cant even get an asprin before I pay 6K. Its like I am being strong armed for 800 a month for nothing and this is a co. supplied plan under our contract. That is where our middle class gets the death blow


It is cheaper to pay the penalty. I worked in the system back when they first started initiating the ACA. The math was obvious from the beginning and it was clear where this train wreck was heading. This in your face robbing of the people that can least afford it, is one of the reason why I had to get out. All the screaming, yelling, and crying that I did made not a bit of difference.

By the way, stop playing into their hands. It is the Affordable Care Act. See how they are laughing at us. Obama was the one in the cockpit when they dropped this bomb on us, but they don't want us to think about who created this beast and set the trigger.

ACA will be a beast we will have battle even when Obama is gone. Don't fall the nothing up my sleeve BS.

ETA: I am voting third party or write in in every race. I have confidence that Trump will suffer a humiliating loss, so my vote is about sending a message to Hillary.


May I ask you who is the best (alternative) candidate as of you.
