Post TRUMP for PREZ
I'm actually surprised that there wasn't a topic about this yet when I looked upon this site for the first time in 2 years. I personally prefer Ted Cruz, But Trump would do for me. He's one of the few people in the country willing to take on the establishment/media/ uniparty/chamber of corruption and get away with it. Everyone else is afraid of the establishment and will defer to political correctness. Not Trump. The last person to do so was Sarah Palin and look what the media did to her. Those same tactics won't work with Trump.

It's time to end the corruption in Washington. That's why the political establishment (D & R) hates Trump. He won't play by their rules that keep them in power. I feel pity for anyone that would prefer a Jeb or a Hillary. Wake up people! Let's make America great again!

I like Trump. But, I don't think we will ever get the chance to vote for him. Both parties hate him. He can't be bought. So, I think they will have him assassinated.

Seriously? Trump is embarrassing. I agree with some of his policy, but his communication skills are a joke. Like it or not, we live in a politically correct world and you can't spout anger infused racist stereotype comments left in right if you want to be the leader of the free world. He will gain the vote of the far right leaning conservatives and may be the front runner in the race for awhile, but as the field narrows the vote will align with another candidate as he continues to alienate major voting blocks.

The majority of this country, the silent majority, is fed up with politics as usual. You yourself constantly complain about coke vs. pepsi, and now the two frontrunners, Trump and Carson are both outsiders that are shaking up the system. It's easy to say Trump is just popular with conservatives, but he's polling well for general election across the board against Hillary. The voting public knows that Wall Street and the Stock Market aren't the economy and just because that came back, it wasn't the recovery that affected them.

There is a major problem with our immigration system. Keyword system. He's not anti-immigrant, he's anti-illegal immigrant which is a big difference. My mother and grandmother came to this country in 1960 and never went through the citizen process but go through all the paperwork every few years to renew. I've been the one to handle all the paperwork over the years and for people who are here legally and doing just a renewal takes 9 months to a year. Flood the system with 11 million more people and that will break this system even more. So I take offense to people saying that illegals having to do things the right way because it isn't fair for those that are doing it the right way is a racist stereotype. It's a reason he's polling high among immigrants because the political correctness has blinded many to the real problems with the system.

People want someone that will speak their minds. When your beholden to donors you can't. This is exactly what all the money in politics has brought us and people see it as a refreshing change. Political correctness is and has been just a fear placed on the populace to keep disagreement to a minimum. We needed a shakeup, even if it doesn't last.

IMO 4 bankruptcies are an abuse of the system. What happens when he has the ultimate power seat? I can see him abusing his power more than Obama...

Another thing i see is Trump complain a lot...I have yet to see much in the line of his version of solutions.

Finally I see Trump's mouth not only offending many Americans, but foreign dignitaries, and leaders. I can easily see a scenario when many American soldiers will have to die due to a war started simply due to Trump not knowing how to shut his mouth when he should.

trump could be good for the country, but on the other hand I can see him being an absolute nightmare as prez. If the presidency was fantasy football, he would be the definition of a boom or bust candidate...would you draft him in the first round on your team?

Long story short: Trump scares me more than he excites me.

I was thinking about buying a "Make America Great Again" hat and wearing it around ironically just to piss my liberal friends off. I was hoping most of Trump's "supporters" were in the same boat as me, but I guess not.

Trump is not a serious candidate. He knows nothing about foreign policy. His platform consists of one issue, illegal immigration. His solution is inherently bigoted, unworkable, monstrously expensive, and violates the constitution. Trump is a smart guy, and I have to believe he knows this (he's had no qualms using illegals to help build his properties in the past) but he also knows that there's a certain subset of the American electorate that's dumb and racist and will go for it hardcore. Frankly, it's sad.

I'll probably vote for Rand Paul in the primary, but won't vote in the 2016 election, as Jeb Bush has a clear lock on the nomination.

If the scandals don't cause Hilary to drop out, she'll win easily in 2016. If she does drop out, it'll be some moderate Democrat like O'Malley, Biden, or maybe even Al Gore that wins. And they'll probably win a second term. The Republican party is very strong locally, but they won't win a Presidental election for quite a while.

Could be wrong about all of this, but this is what seems most likely to me.

I completely understand what everyone is saying about Trump, but that's not the point. Who else has the money, gonads, intellect, and common sense to take on the political establishment? No one. As Pablo likes to say, it's Coke vs. Pepsi in every election, but suddenly, Faygo has entered the field. The establishment doesn't like that one bit, nor should they.

An old proverb states that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. That's what Trump is to the Democrats, Republican establishment, the media, political insiders, and the rest of those scumbags to me. He's saying what must be said and political correctness be damned.

I could go on and on about Cloward-Piven, Fabianism, political correctness, socialism, fascism, totalarianism, corporatism, or just plain old libtardism, but it's all the same. Thankfully, I'm old and I should be dead before this once great country collapses because of it's ignorance.

Then again, an outsider like Trump could fix things instead of continuing down the failed path of the status quo. Time will tell.

Do you honestly believe he'll win the nomination?

His campaign is built on what I guess could be called white identity politics. Not social conservatism, or economic liberalism, or anything the Republican party has stood for in the last few decades.

If Jeb wasn't a Bush he would've had this wrapped up a long time ago. Should've changed his name in 08.

The establishment may want who they want, but that largely comes down to money and donors. The voters actually select who gets the nomination because the primaries assign the majority of delegates. And for White identity politics, Trump is getting 25% of the black vote. And that's because a lot of the black groups in Chicago and other areas are realizing how the Democratic party is using them politically, not changing anything that they've promised over decades, and they are pushing back. As for conservatism, nothing the Republicans have been doing for the last 20 years can be called conservative. They've spent as much if not the same as democrats and the voters don't like it.

Reagan was a democrat before he was a Republican, and so Trumps being from a Blue state that makes you aware of how both sides play the game, is giving him a huge advantage right now. And this division in Washington is only going to get solved by bringing both sides together. The Democratic candidates only want to move further left while the Rino's only want to move further right. You're going to see a lot of moderate people going outside the system this time because they realize the system's broke. And call his record what you want, but he's been successful. You can't say that about any of the politicians because politicians don't have anything tangible to show you.

A poll shows Donald Trump doing well with black voters. About that...
http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the- ... ck-voters/

Paul Krugman endorses Donald Trump's economics
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/09/07/opini ... omics.html

The comparison with Reagan is off base. Reagan converted in the 1950s, and then gave the A Time for Choosing speech in 1964, which pretty much laid out the philosophy the Republican party has stuck by ever since. Trump has been praising Democrats pretty consistently until only very recently.

Trump isn't really a Republican. He's just an angry old white man, like many Republicans. And I'm using the race card here because that's been a huge part of Trump's platform. You'll get some hardcore supporters with that rhetoric, but you're not winning a national election.

What race card? Immigration? There's an illegal immigration problem which shouldn't be confused with legal immigration. The illegal immigration is also a big portion of the gang problems around the country so limiting it down to a racial issue is flat out wrong. Immigrants that came here legally are extremely upset about the illegal aspect of the immigration and when you lump them all together it's a problem. We are a country of laws that can't uphold our own laws and when legal immigration is so broke it becomes easier to just let people cross and not prosecute, there's a problem.

"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems...they're bringing drugs, they're bringing crime. They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people."

When we deport criminals and they come back and deported multiple times, the government (Mexico) is knowingly sending them here so they don't have to deal with them. It's the same thing Castro did. The key words in that statement is "sending."

Quote:
Data on immigrants and crime are incomplete, but a range of studies show there is no evidence immigrants commit more crimes than native-born Americans. In fact, first-generation immigrants are predisposed to lower crime rates than native-born Americans.


Quote:
CRS also found that non-citizens make up a smaller percentage of the inmate population in state prisons and jails, compared to their percentage to the total U.S. population.


Quote:
Interestingly, crime rates increase as generations of immigrants assimilate into America. Second-generation immigrants, who are born in the United States and have at least one foreign-born parent, are more likely to commit crimes than first-generation immigrants, and have similar crime rates as native-born Americans.


Quote:
Trump’s repeated statements about immigrants and crime underscore a common public perception that crime is correlated with immigration, especially illegal immigration. But that is a misperception; no solid data support it, and the data that do exist negate it. Trump can defend himself all he wants, but the facts just are not there.


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/fac ... and-crime/

You can talk about securing the border, but there's no need to make statements suggesting that Mexicans are prone to rape.

Moreover, you're just treating the symptoms, not the problem. Part of the issue is that northern Mexico is a lawless place with minimal government control. Drug cartels are powerful and hold sway. Why is that? Could it be Americans massive appetite for illegal drugs and our governments foolish decision to use prohibition to combat it? Legalize and regulate drugs and let American businessmen supply them. The Meixcan cartels will crumble and the Mexican government will able to help us secure the border.
