Trump has no solutions for bringing down the debt. Only talk and ZERO substance.

I would love to see a chart of either candidates budget plans not increasing the debt if you could provide one.


One doesn't exist, they are both going to add to the debt.

It's not as simple as our navy just patrols the world. Our pacific fleet is based in Pacific island nations. We could just use Samoa and Hawaii I supose but without the threat of forward bases single navy ships (all having to be nuke powered to just sail around the world without refueling) are not a threat to anyone but perhaps pirates in fishing vessels. China certainly isn't going to feel threatened because a few boats are in the region with no reinforcements.

I agree though we should start thinning these bases. BUT trump saying he is going to go back on trade agreements with China also has other issues. Like overnight inflation when the cpi skyrockets from lack of goods from china. NOT just Walmart either but supply lines for auto companies, airlines etc. CHINA obviously holds lots of us debt, and property. SO this compounds the problem.

Nothing is as simple as closing bases and imposing tarrifs, or building walls. They are all gimmicks.


He has no plan. No clue. No idea how to govern and America is not a business . it can't be run like one, it's not that simple. There is no ceo there are supposed to be public servants.

I would vote for trump if he was first a successful governor or legislator or had a record to follow like Rand Paul


Or if his campaign slogan was "If I get elected I will clean up my parties curroption and not suggest any legislation or do anything else while in office"

Because his proposals are gimmicks.

Trump wants to strengthen the military which will involve increasing the already bloated military budget. I have an idea. How about we close those 800 overseas bases and just worry about defending our own borders. That would surely help reduce the strain on the budget.


That would naively assume that there is no reason for having the bases there in the first place.

It is generally strategic. To rip up the bases would create massive amounts of instability throughout the world.

The US has done immense amounts of good in the world through having its military bases in the world. We also prevent military bulid up in many countries, and create a more stable planet less likely to devolve into devastating wars, which creates more overall economic stability too.

In other words, there are reasons they are there that Mr. Trump doesn't have the capacity to understand.

Look, nobody knows everything. How this works is that the President has his advisors on all types of matter. Nobody expects Trump to know everything. Trump is a business man and because he is, he has experience in hiring the best people for the job. As president, he will bring in the most intelligent people to surround him, and to advise him.

Hillary has been a crooked politician for 30 years, and Trump (as a business man) has gotten things done. That’s just the way it is.

All that site shows is she is all talk and no action. Don't forget she has a public and private stance on EVERYTHING.

Everyone has opinions they say in public and those that they keep private. Let me guess the Lincoln story that she used was too complex for Donnie's followers to understand? What action has Donnie done? Oh yeah nothing.

Well his opponent and her sorry fake friend Obama are the ones who created the DEBT we re in now,,STARTED BY BILL CLINTONS NAFTA. Your point ?

That would be George Bush sr NAFTA. Bush was the one that started NAFTA after all the groundwork was laid out by Reagan Clinton just put the final touches on NAFTA. The debt we are in now is a direct result of Reagan's voodoo economics not Obama or Clinton.. You need to brush up on the economic history of this nation.

Trump is the son of a politician born wealthy and with political connections. Real estate deals at his level are about bribes and lobby.

He has taken large loans from Saudia Arabia when his businesses failed .

He is not a good or ethical businessman . HE is a slimey politician without the oversight of public scrutiny.


There is an illusion of choice .

Two wrongs don't make one right or better.

Details and Analysis of Donald Trump’s Tax Plan


Conclusion
Donald Trump’s tax plan would enact a number of tax reforms that would both lower marginal tax rates on workers and significantly reduce the cost of capital. These changes in the incentives to work and invest would greatly increase the U.S. economy’s size in the long run, leading to higher incomes for taxpayers at all income levels. The plan would also be a large tax cut, which would increase the federal government’s deficit by over $10 trillion, both on a static and dynamic basis.

taxfoundation.org...


Considering the Present state of the U.S. Economy , Mr. Trump , if Elected , will Inherit an Economic Situation that will take Years to Fix . No President in Modern Times has had to deal with a National Debt of Over 20 Trillion Dollars going into his First year in Office . Considering that , No One Really Knows what He would have to do to Reduce that Staggering Number Until he Actually attempts it as President .

Uh, right.

It's all true. He took money from the Saudi prince, he is the son of a politician, and he has lobbied congress regularly.

Not an outsider. He is a sleazy real estate agent.

Hillary is a sleazy person herself. That is why they were friends.

Readily available online . You should research the candidate you vote for. The son of a politician was more a metaphor for the bribe method of doing his business. Several fed investigations in his dad's dealings.

As far as the others they were literal when trump went bankrupt and the lobbying is out of his own mouth.

So trump was not a lobbyist?

He doesn't make deals with the saudis?

HE didn't get bailed out with almost a billion worth of his assets during bankruptcy?

His father wasn't subject to several investigations and a lobbyist himself?

Get a clue the guy is trash. Just like clinton. For way more reasons than that

I thought the one of the key points was that money loaned into circulation can only be repaid with money loaned into circulation. This is what accounts for the blowout in all national debts. It effectively debt on debt.

Ultimately, all money loaned into circulation has to be repaid using more borrowed money, even through it may pass through many hands to get back to the borrower to give back to the bank.

What is a profit to one person must be more debt to someone else back down the line.

If Banks Loan Newly Printed Money given to them from the Federal Reserve Bank , the Interest they Charge in Loaning that Money is Repaid by Money Already in Circulation . It's Called Fractal Banking , an Abomination to the U.S. Economy .
