Trump has experience making money.
Other than that I can think of no other reason to vote for him.

Donald, you have my vote.What you said yesterday was so true.Every time a country in the middle east asks us for our military help,no problem,but we are bringing back all the oil you have in the country for our use.Thats right,if we have to lay out billions for our military to fight your battles,we bring home oil.

If Trump was to get in he will do exactly as he's told PERIOD and there's not a damn thing he can do about it except resign.

If he joins in as an independent he certainly can make a difference in the election. However, what I see him and the GOP, Bachmann (who now hears from God), Palin, and the righties doing right now, they will literally allow Obama to walk into his second term.
Where are the jobs?
Donald Trump now sees himself as something of a patron saint for the birthers – and he's even released his own birth certificate as he steps up criticism of the president. Continue Reading Seeking to pump more energy into the birther movement and quirky chase for the White House, Trump on Monday provided a copy of his birth certificate to the conservative website Newsmax – which has played a leading role in trumpeting birther mythology. And in an interview on Fox News, Trump cast himself as something akin to the rebel leader of the birther movement. “Now, this guy either has a birth certificate or he doesn’t,” Trump said. “And I didn't think this was such a big deal, but I will tell you, it’s turning out to be a very big deal because people now are calling me from all over saying, please don't give up on this issue." Trump’s insistence that he’s being encouraged to continue on his birther crusade has led to what he says is the startling revelation that, “all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging and I’m starting to wonder myself whether or not [Obama] was born in this country." Trump also called for Hawaii Democratic Gov. Neil Abercrombie to be investigated for stating that he – as a friend of the president’s parents – remembers Obama’s birth. "I think this guy should be investigated," Trump said. "I doubt it. He remembers when Obama was born? Give me a break! He's just trying to do something for his party."
Trump advocated for universal healthcare in his 2000 book, The America We Deserve, writing that the goal should be to "make reforms for the moment and, longer term, to find an equivalent of the single-payer plan that is affordable, well-administered, and provides freedom of choice."
I would impose a one-time, 14.25% tax on individuals and trusts with a net worth over $10 million. For individuals, net worth would be calculated minus the value of their principal residence. That would raise $5.7 trillion in new revenue, which we would use to pay off the entire national debt [and shore up the Social Security Trust Fund].
Some will say that my plan is unfair to the extremely wealthy. I say it is only reasonable to shift the burden to those most able to pay. The wealthy actually would not suffer severe repercussions.
