I would have been fine with Carly. She would have made a wonderful first female president...unlike the Democrat nominee.

 

However, when my choice is Trump or the Hildabeast, I'll vote TRUMP!


Hillary was a terrible candidate. Plain and simple.

 

The Hildabeast IS a despicable CESSPOOL of CORRUPTION.

I would have liked  to see a ticket of Carly and Condi.  Or vice-versa.

I heard yesterday that Condi is at the Ladies' PGA tourney this week.  Just in case DJT needs to get in touch with her.   (Saying long, fervent prayer that will happen).

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

 

 

I guess you haven't been to Detroit recently?  Or, Newark or East St.Louis or Gary, IN, or Stockton, CA?

 

You know, those bastions of liberal Democrat government that have been so successful in attracting wealthy, educated leaders and businesspeople.  Progressive people,  who have uplifted the poorer of their brethren, so their city can be that bright example of how well Socialism works.

Clinton has won the nomination, soon enough Sanders will pledge his support. Trump is in the midst of a major meltdown, his supporters have already started jumping ship. It's been a good week for the American people who have at long last started showing signs of coming to their senses.

There are other attractive aspects of Ms. Clinton.

To say that Donald Trump makes her seem more attractive is like saying that a hatchet lodged in the center of one's skull is less attractive than diamond studded earrings. Certainly the diamond earrings are more attractive and have the added bonus of not spurting blood when you remove them.

Trump on the other hand is a rolling train wreck so well liked by the right that Tom Friedman suggests that he is showing just how vapid the GOP is ... and suggest a change to a GNP.

His main claim to fame is being a litigious bully.  (Bet you never thought I would invoke the National Review.)

 

BTW: Hillary is not evil ... she's just not perfect ... she's just different than the clown to her left and the joker to her right.

 

Fact is I think we're all stuck in the middle with her.

 

Which reminds me...

The truth is that no matter what I type in this box... your mind is set in stone.

 

Really, why should I waste my time ? ? ? You do not really seek an answer,

just another opportunity to argue the political opposition and feel superior...

 

Google is your friend.... very first result : (#wowthatwaseasy) 

 

https://www.donaldjt...na-trade-reform

 

Further information is available at your local library...   :)

(They also have many books about Hillary Clinton.) 

From your link:

 

When Donald J. Trump is president, China will be on notice that America is back in the global leadership business and that their days of currency manipulation and cheating are over. We will cut a better deal with China that helps American businesses and workers compete.

The Trump Plan Will Achieve The Following Goals:

  1. Bring China to the bargaining table by immediately declaring it a currency manipulator.
  2. Protect American ingenuity and investment by forcing China to uphold intellectual property laws and stop their unfair and unlawful practice of forcing U.S. companies to share proprietary technology with Chinese competitors as a condition of entry to China’s market.
  3. Reclaim millions of American jobs and reviving American manufacturing by putting an end to China’s illegal export subsidies and lax labor and environmental standards. No more sweatshops or pollution havens stealing jobs from American workers.
  4. Strengthen our negotiating position by lowering our corporate tax rate to keep American companies and jobs here at home, attacking our debt and deficit so China cannot use financial blackmail against us, and bolstering the U.S. military presence in the East and South China Seas to discourage Chinese adventurism.

 

Again, like I said, his "plan" is no different from anything that's been done by the US government over the course of years.  I find it hilarious that Trump thinks he just has the power to walk into a room and everyone will bow at his feet.  China will laugh in his face.  Under a hypothetical Trump administration, why would the Chinese listen to a President that is despised by both major American political parties?  They will believe, correctly, that he has no power being Congress will not have his back.  And what will thin-skinned Donald's reaction be?  An all out trade war. 

 

The guy talks cheeze.  That's all he does.

So, I'm going to assume you don't have a problem with Hillary and her desire to amend the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms?

 

 

The wording of the Second Amendment has long made the extent of gun ownership rights a point of contention:

 

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."


 

Questioned by George Stephanopoulos about her view of the amendment, Clinton talked about a "nuanced reading" and emphasized her belief in the rights of local, state and federal governments to regulate gun ownership. Stephanopoulos, formerly a top aide to President Bill Clinton, wasn't satisfied by the response.

 

"That's not what I asked," he replied.

 

Clinton then discussed the right to own a gun as a hypothetical. "If it is a constitutional right," she began her next answer, "then it - like every other constitutional right - is subject to reasonable regulations."

Regulating sales of arms and ammunition is not the same as stripping away the 2nd amendment.  Over 70% of NRA members are in favor of universal background checks and yet, for some reason, it can't get through Congress.

S&W .38 special with hollow points.

 

That doesn't sound like a well regulated militia, low.

 

I can't help but bring us back to the beginning ... that those in the media including the right wing media ... are going to do their best to convince Donald to leave the race.  To wit, Bill Kristol of the National Review wrote:  “Official position of the leadership of the Republican Party: Trump is an inexcusable bigot, and Trump must be our next president.”

 

However, the best piece I've read today was from Thomas Friedman, who wrote:

 

Today’s G.O.P. is to governing what Trump University is to education — an ethically challenged enterprise that enriches and perpetuates itself by shedding all pretense of standing for real principles, or a truly relevant value proposition, and instead plays on the ignorance and fears of the public.

It is just an empty shell, selling pieces of itself to the highest bidders, — policy by policy — a little to the Tea Party over here, a little to Big Oil over there, a little to the gun lobby, to antitax zealots, to climate-change deniers. And before you know it, the party stands for an incoherent mess of ideas unrelated to any theory of where the world is going or how America actually becomes great again in the 21st century.

It becomes instead a coalition of men and women who sell pieces of their brand to whoever can most energize their base in order for them to get re-elected in order for them to sell more pieces of their brand in order to get re-elected.

 

 

I wonder why the thought of George Zimmerman selling the gun he shot Rawith rushed into my head ... I mean he's not running for office ... but how many thousands did he get for that gun, which would otherwise have a value of about $400.

First, remember that the EEC, South America, Australia, et al, pay very, very close attention to our politics.

 

It determines much of the economic shifts worldwide.

 

Everyone in all of these countries who do international business are concerned with what the Chinese do. They are basically a 1/3 of the worlds population, and they have to eat.  They absolutely cannot feed themselves, or come anywhere close to doing so. They require our meat, and grain in order to survive.  They devalue their currency to sell the manufactured junk here, but in the process they make the food they buy from us and the EEC and south america more expensive in the process.  And it is a potential bomb whenever the market gets a scare over economic and political policies that could disrupt the flow of products both directions.

 

We don't HAVE to have their TVs, etc.  On the other hand, they MUST be able to get much of their meat and grain from us. If the people can;t eat, they tend to want to overthrow the government.

 

At the same time, our food producers depend heavily on  their markets to accept our grain, poultry, pork, and beef. Which they must have in order to eat.

 

W Bush fowled [no intended pun] up over and over screwing up the China trade. Obama, with Hillary fixed a whole lot of problems, and this has helped our protien producers to become profitable again.  Christmas of 2008, over 50% of our meat producers were in chapter 11 bankruptcy, caused for the most part by the W Bush and Congress setting the absured Ethanol mandates. Obama and the state department was able to get those problems fixed.

 

Don't sell Hillary short. She knows her stuff and has great respect from the world leadership which is scared cheezeless of Trump.  The last thing we need right now is our world markets backing away from our products, which have already gone up in price 20% based on foreign exchange currency rates the past 4-5 years.

 

The Euro was $1.40 to $1.50 4 years ago, and today it is less than $1.10

 

That should say it all.

I haven't checked the facts yet, but saw two articles that had some interesting facts:

 

 

Hillary received 15,899,116 votes this year.
Bernie Sanders received 12,193,152 votes.

Hillary and Bernie received 28,092,268 total primary votes this year.

In 2008 Hillary Clinton received 17,493,836 primary votes.

So this year Hillary received 1,594,720 FEWER primary votes than in 2008.
And she lost in 2008!
Horrible.

More than 35,029,294 votes were cast in the 2008 Democratic primary.

So Democrats lost nearly 7 million primary votes this year compared to 2008.

 

The other:

 

 

The American businessman surpassed 2012 nominee Mitt Romney’s and 2008 nominee John McCain’s primary election vote totals by late in April according to Politico calculations. Previous record holder George W. Bush received just 10.8 million votes in 2000, a number far surpassed by Trump’s over 13 million votes with the five June 7 primaries.

 

I wonder how many of those missing Democratic voters jumped to the Republicans to vote for Trump figuring he'd be easy to beat by either Hillary or Bernie.

 

The south made it even easier by pulling in their elections and only have the presidential primary on the ballot.  So a Democrat could vote in the Republican for the presidential primary, then democratic for all the other primaries and not miss a beat.

 

I think it's time for the primaries to be closed up. 

 

'Course, then I guess people could join both parties and still vote in either I guess.

SG: 

 

I think there are a lot of possible reasons for the data you report.  The first thing to remember is that presidential primaries actually only reach about 10-14 percent of the population or about 40 million people.   The general election will involve upwards of 120,000,000. 

 

I think it also important to remember that voting participation went down in 2012 over 2008 (and is smaller yet in off-year elections)  Given the line up of candidates and the overall negativity, overall turnout is likely to fall again in 2016.  Heck, constant critical negativism like we've experienced is a verified voter suppression tactic and we know who is employing that tactic and why.

 

Personally, I think the only group that was particularly energized this past election was the very conservative angry white guy with populist anti-globalist attitudes and similar parochial beliefs. They came out in droves for Trump along with older women, particularly those who watch a lot of tv including reality TV, had a reality star who had visited in their living rooms and bedrooms and even fired people in their presence.  These folks felt a connection to Trump and voted for him. Many of these folks had never participated in primaries in the past. That would explain the boost in GOP numbers.

 

Overall, though, I think the electorate, after six years of sustained negativity and overt criticism, basically have a headache over all the bull being shoveled.  That would go a long way in explaining the less than enthusiastic Democrats in the primary season.  That lack of excitement was amplified by the media, which made a point of pointing a live camera at an empty Trump podium while Bernie was holding a rally with 20,000 people (and no TV coverage.)  For the record Obama's vote total dropped 10 million voters between 2008 and 2012  (69 million to 59 million.)

 

One more  point on voter suppression.  I think just right here on pcom we see partisan people predicting that an indictment of Hillary is imminent.  This is voter suppression. I mean if you hear that she is going to be indicted 200 times, you'll probably, when it comes to making an effort to go to the polls, blow it off. I mean who would want to spend a half-day to go vote for someone who a lot of folks think is a 'criminal.'

 

The point I would make is that this is a voter suppression tactic and the people making these UNFOUNDED allegations/predictions don't know a damn thing ... except they are partisans in a war to win an election and it seems no more unethical to do this than to tell all the republicans that this year, they vote on November 9th.

From your link:

 

When Donald J. Trump is president, China will be on notice that America is back in the global leadership business and that their days of currency manipulation and cheating are over. We will cut a better deal with China that helps American businesses and workers compete.

The Trump Plan Will Achieve The Following Goals:

  1. Bring China to the bargaining table by immediately declaring it a currency manipulator.
  2. Protect American ingenuity and investment by forcing China to uphold intellectual property laws and stop their unfair and unlawful practice of forcing U.S. companies to share proprietary technology with Chinese competitors as a condition of entry to China’s market.
  3. Reclaim millions of American jobs and reviving American manufacturing by putting an end to China’s illegal export subsidies and lax labor and environmental standards. No more sweatshops or pollution havens stealing jobs from American workers.
  4. Strengthen our negotiating position by lowering our corporate tax rate to keep American companies and jobs here at home, attacking our debt and deficit so China cannot use financial blackmail against us, and bolstering the U.S. military presence in the East and South China Seas to discourage Chinese adventurism.

 

Again, like I said, his "plan" is no different from anything that's been done by the US government over the course of years.  I find it hilarious that Trump thinks he just has the power to walk into a room and everyone will bow at his feet.  China will laugh in his face.  Under a hypothetical Trump administration, why would the Chinese listen to a President that is despised by both major American political parties?  They will believe, correctly, that he has no power being Congress will not have his back.  And what will thin-skinned Donald's reaction be?  An all out trade war. 

 

The guy talks cheeze.  That's all he does.

The Chinese are laughing at Obama right now.

 

There is a middle ground between allowing China

to royally screw us over and an "all out trade war."

 

It's called negotiation.

A man must be excessively stupid, as well as uncharitable,
who believes that there is no virtue but on his own side, and that there
are not men as honest as himself who may differ from him in political principles.

True.  Trump makes the best deals.  He's a deal maker.  He loves great deals.  It's what he does.  He'll make a deal with China.  Let me tell you it'll be a great deal.  We gotta make America great again!  Did I mention it'll be a great deal?

And Obama will be on a world tour apologizing for it.  Like he did for winning WW2.

Calling an illegal alien an "undocumented worker" is like calling a drug dealer an "unlicensed pharmacist".

 

 

I guess you haven't been to Detroit recently?  Or, Newark or East St.Louis or Gary, IN, or Stockton, CA?

 

You know, those bastions of liberal Democrat government that have been so successful in attracting wealthy, educated leaders and businesspeople.  Progressive people,  who have uplifted the poorer of their brethren, so their city can be that bright example of how well Socialism works.

Love the people who treat you right, pray for the ones who don't. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living."

If he does he will do it as a private citizen, because, and maybe you just haven't heard, while he would probably win in a landslide against the 'Don' he will not be running for a third term.
