I had forgotten about that thanks for posting it.
After learning about his views on foreign policy I ruled him out as someone I could support and didn’t pay much attention to him after that but I vaguely remember hearing about those remarks and just shaking my head. I just do not see how so many people got behind him after learning things like that about him.
I kind of understood how they fell for his foreign policy because it sounded good at first but the reality of the world is much different than what he made it out to be and many people just do not have a firm grasp on it.
Actually his foreign policy is great. We do not need any involvement in the middle east and we should be returning troops back to america to protect our borders. We spend almost a trillion per year just to flex our muscle to the world, which creates animosity and is terribly wasteful.
It is the bone crushing small government crap that scares me #less. I cannot fathom social security, medicare and medicaid taking the plunge because we spend so much on wars and counter-terrorism. And because the insanely rich hoarde money offshore. We need somewhat of a smaller government BUT taxes need to come from the billionares.
Constitution party and green party is what I like. Libertarians and republicans scare me. Democrats are barely ok!
