Trump’s Conservative Economic Vision for America

For any fiscal conservatives still sitting the fence, Donald Trump’s speech on the economy Monday should go a long way towards settling their fears. Speaking at the Detroit Economic Club, Trump laid out a conservative economic vision for the country that essentially matches traditional Republican orthodoxy. While the specifics of his economic plan will be published on his website over the next week, Trump’s outline is consistent with the principles that will stimulate growth and raise American wages.

Trump said that he would favor a top tax rate of 33% and he called on a reduction in the corporate tax rate, policies that will find a receptive home in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives. He called attention to the importance of slashing regulations, vowed to simplify the tax code, and promised to eliminate the estate tax. If Paul Ryan was listening, it must have filled his heart with joy.

While there was plenty of meat on the bone for traditional conservatives, Trump didn’t sell out his unique set of proposals that separate his plan from those that have come before. He reiterated his opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership and the current version of NAFTA, both of which are widely supported by the political establishment in both parties. He also expressed criticism of the carried interest tax break, a deduction used by many in finance.

“We will eliminate the carried interest deduction and other special interest loopholes that have been so good for Wall Street investors, and people like me, but unfair to American workers,” Trump said.

He also unveiled a fresh idea: Expand federal tax benefits so that families can claim child care expenses as deductions. This is well outside the GOP platform and appears to have come from his daughter, Ivanka. It might find acceptance as populist idea that can win over female voters; seldom are the times people turn their nose up at a tax break.

“American steel will send new skyscrapers soaring. We will put new American metal into the spine of this nation,” Trump promised. “It will be American hands that rebuild this country.”

As you can see, Trump is mining his economic plan from the same rich vein of patriotism he has tapped for all of his proposals. Trump takes a lot of heat for not being a “true conservative,” but his essence is conservatism itself. When you do what you do out of a deep love for this country and what it symbolizes, marry that with the concepts and ideas that have worked for society in the past, you have a winning formula. It may look a little strange from this angle or that, but it’s got a solid foundation. These policies will correct our course.

  1. If he can just keep his foot out of his mouth and get the Idiot voters to stop supporting Hillary the Marxist anti American traitor who is complicit in the murder of 4 Americans in Benghazi and taking bribe’s from Terrorist Counties while Secretary of State in exchange for weapons munitions and special contracts thru the State Department and for Espionage with 2200 Classified and 23 Top Secret emails thru her Unsecured Illegal in Home Servers and her Blackberry Phone that was easily hackable when she was in Terrorist Countries and now we have an executed Iranian Scientist that was mentioned on Hillary’s server who was a Spy for America. Trump is the only American running for President, hillary is a Marxist Pig Traitor!!!! Vietnam Vet

    • I love Trump but you’re right he’s gotta watch his mouth. At least until after he becomes president.

      TRUMP 2016

      • Guess I’m with ya there, but I hope he makes Give ‘um hell Harry Truman and George Patten sound like the church lady after he gets in.

        • How many dead bodies will satisfy your power obsession?

          • That is the Question you should be asking the Clintons, they know about sudden dead bodies. One just appeared in WDC. But then you don’t follow that type of news.

          • A prime example of the Goebbles’ theorem.

          • Yes you are a prime example of ignorance who swallows what Hillary serves you.

          • Thank you. Niw, no one has any doubt about either your intellegence or your ethics, well the lack there of..

          • You, Obama and Ohillary embarrass America!!.

          • Barry, you reputation for nontruth goes back a long way.

          • if we are talking about ethics,your gal killary has none

          • Not my gal.
            Why do you make assumptions?
            Theu just make you look foolish.

          • Or perhaps a prime example of your denial.

          • Save your breath.

          • You, Obama and Ohillary embarrass America!..

          • There are things one learns through experience.
            One of those is the fact that all politicians lie.
            If you expect honesty, you will continually be disappointed..

          • And we have the CHIEF LIAR in the white house now. The one he learned from is LYING about her own LIES now. PATHETIC

          • You won’t get an honest debate out of her. Flag her.

          • Cite paragraph and chapter od the ADA that requires you to change insurance?

          • Debate?
            How do yu debate lies?

          • Yer right Mac. I helped her make a damn FOOL of herself a few weeks ago. Her handle should be AKLazy2015. She’s a carp for free stuff from us taxpayers.

          • Honest debate? You don’t know the meaning of either od those words.

          • Oh, yes, the insurance thing, yet again.
            The law made no requiorement to change insurance policies.
            Your insurance company saw a way to hit you up for more money.
            How much did they hit you for?

          • The pertinent question is, “How much of us taxpayers extra premium is used to pay for the slugs that get it for free or are vastly subsidized”? Remember this idiotic law allows the leaches to “NOT BUY INSURANCE” till the day they need it, then cancel immediately after they’re OK. That’s not the way insurance works nor is it fair to responsible people. But DUMB A$$ oc RATS don’t care about us. Try using some common sense.

          • That is not how health insurance works.

          • That’s how it’s always worked, until the LIAR in Chief pulled off this major SCAM. Insurance cos. could never stay in business the way it is now. Use your head for thinking instead of a hat rack.

          • Your post tells a very different story.
            You do not know thw first thing about insurance of any kind.
            No one gets “free” health insurance.
            The ACA requires everyone to “buy” health insurance.

          • There was a piece on TV today explaining that if someone fills out a form and claims they can’t afford it, they can get a waiver. Now stop with the LIES. If you aren’t LYING, then you are ignorant. GO AWAY.

          • If you cannot aford private insurance, then there are state programs available.

          • I can’t afford private ins. or a state program. What should I do? I have no money education or a job. What do I do to get insurance. Pleases help me.

          • Go to your local public assistence office and apply for benefits.

          • Are not 15 of the original 23 exchanges out of business? I heard more are on the way Illinois is having a big one close soon, because they’re losing money giving away free care to leaches and scam artists. Wake up.

          • There is no longer a need for exchanges.
            The rushed, mass purchase of insurance is long over.

          • AKLazy, Apparently you’re not bright enough to understand how the insurance industry works. Too bad for you. I’m not going to waste my time on an uninformed ignoramus. 280 million people got screwed around so that 10 million could suck off the gummint teet. Hope you’re happy, because that’s not fair or honest. But that’s what DUMB A$$ oc RATS do. Steal working taxpayers money to pay the lazy for votes.

          • I thought you said you didn’t act like a parrot. You just did. That’s another LIE.

          • you got that right

          • Obama’s mother died some time ago.
            His grandparents have also passed.

          • If you had any brains, you’d know I was referring to HillBilly and Hel LIAR y Clinton, the 2 pieces of $hit who’ve lied their way to $millions on the tax payers dime.

          • You, Obama and Ohillary embarrass America!.

          • Name calling is childish.
            Most give it up by the 2nd or 3rd grade.

          • Omg, the fat lady from AK is back. Smartest hitch, just ask her.

          • You, Obama and Ohillary embarrass America!!

          • Flag her

          • For what. exactly?

          • Two unecessary wars, over 4,000 Americans killed.
            Two unecessary wars, costing an average of $1 million a day — each,

          • Did your husband know you were anti military ?

          • Anit-military?
            Even the military does not support unevessary wars.
            I buried two in Arlington — KIA, Vietnam.
            I served, active duty — Vietnam.

          • So your loss turned you into a bitter person against the military and now you support the Clintons. Calling your Husband a devil proves you are no Lady.

          • Don’t waste you time talking to this fool!!!? She’s either a troll or severely brain damaged. In either case there is no point debating an individual I consider to be “Meat with Eyes”, she too far gone to try and save!

          • As many as it takes, but way less than if a Democratic Convention was convened each weekend in Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles or Miami (remember the Chicago Riots).

          • We are up to 48 now aren’t we??

            You, Obama and Ohillary embarrass America!

          • Barry, I like your name for Hillary, Ohillary is the perfect name for someone like her who has her head up his butt. She has promised to continue his polices for 4 more years. All I can say is God help us.I hope if she does get in, the dumasses who voted her in gets a walloping bait of her before she gets out. There are millions, however who think obama is the greatest thing since sliced bread. I’m sure there are plenty who feel the same about her.

        • Where did you get that BS story.

        • LMAO! That is “over the top” ignorance, even for a proven leftist slob!

      • Have you been listening to him these last several weeks. Definitely presidential. By the way, last summer he promised once he got down to the last few candidates or the candidacy, he approach would be and definitely now is different. He will be on Dr. Savage’s program next Wednesday, to tune in. I have listened to Trumps latest speeches and they will rock you in what he is saying and will do, while all you get is more screeching and the same old what she as prez would do, or in order words repeating the same crock of you know what we got from Obama. She feels vagina is necessary and Obama felt being a pretend black man was necessary. Same garbage, same rhetoric, same do nothing but promise what you will tax the little people for and still nothing gets done but wrecking America.

    • We the People do not elect a President.

            By JACKIE RUNION , The Marietta Times
            MARIETTA – A Lower Salem man who was arrested for engaging in sexual conduct with a minor will now have to spend the next 17 months in prison after he failed to show up for pre-sentence appointments that could have led to alternative options.

            Kirkland M. Dennewitz, 20, of 9645 State Route 821, will head to a state prison facility for more than a year after his sentencing hearing Wednesday afternoon in Washington County Common Pleas Court.

            Dennewitz was 19 when he was arrested last year and charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor for incidents that occurred in June in Salem Township.

          • MORE idiocy and a lame brained (usual for a liberal turd) attempt to smear someone based on the last name with NO evidence the two people are even connected.

THAT’S the woman who CLAIMS to be FOR women’s rights. The same one who attacked all of HILLBILLY’s sex victims. Get some pertinent info.

      • You IDIOT , coming on a cons. site and making a DAMN FOOL of yourself again. Why don’t you comment about the ransom the MORON paid for the hostages. Or Hell LIAR s lies and the 5 dead bodies that have shown up lately, a few associated with the DNC? Why did Debbie Wasserman Schultz have to resign? Who then hired her? Who was fired from the Watergate inquiry for LYING and stealing evidence, you DUNCE look those up.

        • Hillary Clinton remained on the Watergate Committee until Richard Nixon resigned and the Committee was shut down.

          Hillary Clinton did not work directly for Jerry Zeifman, he could not have fired her as claimed.

        • What ransom for what hostages?

          • $400 million that the news channels you watch, conveniently omit from the public. Even Iranian officials admitted it was a ransom. You’re backing a LIAR in the white house. Maybe he’ll make an executive order and change the name to the Black House before Jan. 20th. It would be more fitting after what he’s done to the prestige of the office.

        • Any more lies you would like to tell/repeat?

          • Did you forget the lie the MORON in CHIEF told during the debate with Romney, when Candy Crowley backed him up? Then the next day she admitted Romney was correct, therefore OLIAR told another lie. In a debate , in front of all America to see, and the lamestream media covered for the amateur stooge. Remember that one? Or do you forget the ones you don’t like? Typical DUMBA$$ oc RAT.

      • ask your buddy killary about this

    • VERY OBVIOUSLY:Steven Coy Viet Nam Vet with Incurable P.T,S.D 40 years later.

    • Great run-on sentence. I heartily agree. GO TRUMP 2016. No other will do!!!!!

    • It’d be a lot more helpful for his lame supporters to stop being so stupid to blame him for media spin.Most of what he says is not as bad as the left tries to make it. By falling into that trap you give the media more incentive to play to the negative. They are in fact out to get him but as a Trump supporter I call the devil by it’s action and the devil is the media. There is no person out there that will get a fair shot in front of a liberal media if you run as a republican. McCain and Romney went through it as wrell as Palin ( because her popularity rose overnight). They will do everything in their power to make the popular republican to look bad.

  2. TRUMP 2016

  3. You just don’t understand economics. Most of Trump’s policies are disastrous as history proves. Check out Ben Shapiro who explains exactly why.

    • Yeah, that’s why he’s in the poor house and all Americans are so rich.

    • I’m sure you own so many enterprises that you can advise all us low graders on what is best for us.

      • Economics has nothing, whatsoever, to do with business ownership.

        • Really? Your ignorance is showing.

          • Why do you think that a business owner muat study economic theory?
            How many colleges/universities require economics courses in their MBA programs?

          • ALL OF THEM STUPID; I know I have a degree in Business Administration.

          • Economics is a social science. It is a study if human behavior. It involves how people use scarce resources to produce commodities and how they go about distributing them.

            Sorry, Pam, economics is a degree program in itself. The majority of MBA programs barely touch on it. Finance, on the other hand, is a heavy hitter, as is management and stats.

          • The business ‘The Lady Dunn’ administers is hooker sales at the trailer park and part time at the family salvage yard where she states that she ”writes down some numbers in a book ‘n feeds ’em dawgs”.

          • Business owners need an understanding of economics to be aware of the economy,
            and how it functions since they are dependent on sales. etc. How many businesses have you run and what were they?

          • Someone that wants to be the US President had bloody well better understand economics. I suggest reading Henry Hazlitt and Ludwig Von Mises.

        • GOOD LORD; WHat total MORONIC IGNORANCE; TRY getting a degree in Business WITHOUT four or five courses in ECONOMICS at ALL levels.

        • Who’s talking about business? It’s about dumb-ass economic policies advocated by Trump.

        • LOL! I majored in business and economics has everything to do with business ownership.

      • I’m not advising, but Shapiro explains in detail why Trump’s economic agenda will have the opposite effect of Trump’s claims.of prosperity. One doesn’t have to be a genius to know that tariffs raise the prices to US consumers. How are higher prices a benefit? And rebuilding our crumbling roads, bridges, and airports will provide jobs, but it will have to be paid for by taxpayers and add to the unsustainable national debt. Ditto rebuilding the military. Anyone remember $37 screws, $7,622 coffee makers, $640 toilet seats, and $435 hammers? Just recently, the Pentagon spent $43 million on a useless gas station in Afghanistan that should have cost no more than $500,000. As far as I know, Trump had never mentioned the abuses of the Pentagon: He’s probably unaware of that, too.

    • Michael Dennewitz

      Another damned liberal! ????

      • Another DAMNED IGNORANT Liberal with turds for brains and a brown stained nose form sniffing Obama and Hillary FARTS.

        • Pam you’re not only beautiful but eloquent and cultured … change your user name to ‘The Lady Dunn’; Dunn been disgusting; Dunn lost her mind; Dunn wore a tube top to a funeral; Dunn ate with her napkin in her hand; Dunn showed her ass(dunn threw up in my mouth a little)online; Dunn wiped a booger on the couch. Dunn.

      • You can’t be serious. You are offensive for no reason. Have you even heard of Ben Shapiro? Check him out and learn something.

    • BULLSHYTE; Old Benny boy is a liberal moron in disguise and is working for Hillary.
      Bennie boy is ALSO totally IGNORANT about economics and the FACT IS that EVEN JFK would approve of TRUMPS POLICIES.

      • No, Pam, JFK would not approve of Trump.

        • Ah, ya, he would. Trump’s economic plan mirrors JFK’s. He was a democrat now they’re called socialists.

          • I can’t agree with the label you choose . Democrats now are center/right nowhere near where the party was from FDR to Stevenson to Kennedy years, even Ike was more liberal then than mainstream Dems now. The party is moving left but not fast enough. The move right came after the right wing fascist coup in ’63 its why we are where we are now…corporately controlled; an economy based on going to war.

      • No Pam, JFK would be not in these desperate environmental times consult an Oklahoma oil nut about the direction of the economy, and probably not a fulltime gambler either. If you’ll recall he printed U.S. Treasury notes rather than side with world bank bandits. However …

    • NAFTA sure is working quite well I see as history has proven. I am not an economist but I listened to his economic policies speech in Detroit the other day and it does make sense. You curtail the businesses they will curtail production/employment. Businesses gives us jobs and opportunities, puts money back into the community – not overseas. When you eliminate the import tax and the heavily regulated industry here in the US, what do you think will happen? Exactly what has been happening for the last 20 years- industries moving out of the country! His immigration policies are also very sound and constitutional. We need to protect our sovereignty and people entering our nation need to do so by our immigration laws that we have (just as my parents did). I can go on and on. Did you listen to his speech? there are also other economists that say his policies are very sound.

      • We’ve been over this time and again. Bill Clinton was certainly a supporter of NAFTA who pushed approval through Congress. But it was negotiated and signed by President George H.W. Bush. Moreover, more Republicans than Democrats voted for the deal, as the trade pact was vehemently opposed by labor unions. One key ally for Clinton was then-House Minority Whip (and later House speaker) Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.), now a Trump supporter.

        Clinton did put his political prestige on the line to get it approved by Congress — even as two top Democrats, House Majority Leader Richard Gephardt (Mo.) and House Majority Whip David Bonior (Mich.), opposed it. In the House, NAFTA passed 234-200; 132 Republicans and 102 Democrats voted in favor of it. The Senate approved NAFTA 61-38, with the backing of 34 Republicans and 27 Democrats.

        In the House and the Senate, more Democrats voted against NAFTA than for it — a signal that the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democratic Party was strong even then. Clinton held a signing ceremony for the implementing legislation on Dec. 3, 1993, flanked by former presidents and congressional leaders of both parties. But that’s not the same as negotiating and signing the treaty with Mexico and Canada. The trade agreement went into effect on Jan. 1, 1994.

        • I know the origins and signing of NAFTA. I stated that it is not working in our favor and Trump wants to get rid of it and not go through with TPP. This is the point of the article and my comments.

      • Here’s a site that says NAFTA has a negative impact on US workers. This is only part of the article.
        NAFTA’s Impact on U.S. Workers
        http://www.epi.org/blog/naftas-impact-workers/
        The North American Free Trade Agreement (NATFA) was the door through which American workers were shoved
        into the neoliberal global labor market.By establishing the
        principle that U.S. corporations could relocate production elsewhere and sell back into the United States, NAFTA undercut the bargaining power of American workers, which had driven the expansion of the middle class since the end of World
        War II. The result has been 20 years of stagnant wages and the upward redistribution of income, wealth and political power.

        NAFTA affected U.S.workers in four principal ways. First, it caused the loss of some 700,000 jobs as production moved to Mexico. Most of these losses came in California, Texas,
        Michigan, and other states where manufacturing is concentrated. To be sure, there were some job gains along the border in service and retail sectors resulting from increased trucking activity, but these gains are small in relation to the loses, and are in lower paying occupations. The vast majority of workers who lost jobs from NAFTA suffered a permanent loss of income.

    • Today’s political policies are disastrous! Recent HISTORY proves that. Look at the numbers of jobless folk.
      Give Trump a chance, this nation is sliding dangerously down a slippery slope!

      • I agree, Mary, but while Trump may be a genius at making money, he really doesn’t understand how some of his ideas work in real life. Luckily, I think (hope) that he’ll surround himself with good people who do know. I believe his intentions are good, but he simply doesn’t know enough–yet.

        • I don’t “know” DT’s intentions are good, but I am fairly sure that Hillary’s aren’t. Be nice to have just one election in which I wasn’t voting against a Politician (Hillary) but really “for” someone!
          I do think DT is our only chance to turn this nation around.

  4. Go Trump.

  5. Trump’s ignorancw on display and the brainwashed cannot see it. God help America.

  6. Every voters needs to know
    in an online poll, recently voted billionaire financier George Soros “the single most destructive leftist demagogue in the country.” Here are the Top 10 Reasons George Soros Is Dangerous:

    1. Gives billions to left-wing causes: Soros started the Open Society Institute in 1993 as a way to spread his wealth to progressive causes. Using Open Society as a conduit, Soros has given more than $7 billion to a who’s who of left-wing groups.

    2. Influence on U.S. elections: His early financial support helped jump-start Barack Obama’s political career. Soros hosted a 2004 fund-raiser for Obama when he was running for the Illinois Senate and gave the maximum-allowed contribution within hours of Obama’s announcement that he was running for President.

    3. Wants to curtail American sovereignty:
    Seeks a world order- where the US is subservient

    4. Media Matters: a progressive media watchdog group that hyperventilates over any conservative view that makes it into the mainstream media. Now its founder, David Brock, has openly declared war on Fox News

    5. MoveOn.org: a progressive advocacy group and political action committee that raises millions for liberal candidates.

    6. Center for American Progress:

    7. Environmental extremism: Obama green jobs czar Van Jones and his leftist environmental ideas have been funded by Soros’

    8. America Coming Together: during Bush time frame sponsored
    its voter registration drives which were riddled with fraud, and it handed out incendiary fliers and made misleading taped phone calls to voters. ACT was fined $775,000 by the Federal Election Commission for violations of various federal campaign finance laws.

    9. Currency manipulation:
    During the 1997 Asian financial crisis, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir bin Mohamad accused him of bringing down the nation’s currency through his trading activities, and in Thailand he was called an “economic war criminal.” Known as “The Man who Broke the Bank of England,” Soros initiated a British financial crisis by dumping 10 billion sterling, forcing the devaluation of the currency and gaining a billion-dollar profit.

    10. Delusions: sees himself as a messiah!

    Go Trump!

    • and don’t forget buffet. bought Burlington/northern that halls lots of oil. then obastard stopped the keystone pipeline.

      • Thank God the universal arch bends toward good and what’s just.

      • Name calling is childish.
        Most give it up by the 2nd or 3rd grade.
        Temper, temper …
        You need to practice more, you have not yet gotten the adult part down.

      • Suggest you pay a visit to Valdez, Alaska and ask them how they feel about oil spills. They are still cleaning up from a tanker spill in1989.
        Unlike the tanker, the Keystone pipeline would be under pressure. The fkow would be about 6.5 cubic feet per second.

    • …and the evil Koch brothers ship their millions to whom?

      • Not to Trump. They’ve already said that they weren’t voting for him.

        • Yes, they’re watching their bottom line! Lol, only 40 mil this time, all down ballot. Pence has had his share of Koch monies while in Indiana .

          • If they were watching their bottom line they would vote for him because his plan would bring the economy backs. All Clinton promises is high taxes and free stuff. Pence ran a successful state with a surplus.

          • We’re glad to be rid of Mikey boy, literally parties in the streets of Indianapolis when he decided to go bye bye with Trump. Pence was my congressman when he lied about WMD in Iraq. Mike was facing defeat here in November. Many businesses gone under his watch. We about lost the NCAA over his desire to block personal rights. The NFL was breathing heavy. We did loose ‘Angie’s List’ headquarters and IBM because of his attempted bigotry. By the way I’m not voting Clinton but sure as hell won’t vote for Pence.

          • Then you’re voting for Clinton.

          • Stein/baraka

    • He is getting old. He has to pass on soon, I hope.

    • Please post your source, thanks.

  7. The LAME STREAM MEDIA is telling more lies and the pollsters are skewing their results with a biased sampling. They’re trying to intimidate potential Trump voters by intimating that their votes won’t count. ALL WORKING TAXPAYERS must take the hours or even the day to vote in November. The pay they’ll sacrifice with the time off the clock will be worth it. REMEMBER ALL WELFARE recipients will be voting, and you know who for. And you know whose taxes will be paying those loafers. Simple as ABC A nyone B ut C linton !!!

    • Public assistance is a state benefit.
      Medicaid is national defense. Lack of medical care access leads to epidemics.
      Food stamps are farm aid. If the poor stopped buying food, farmers would go bankrupt.

      • If the poor would get educated and work, they could pay their own way , like most of us on here, except you. Public assistance is an embarrassment. Ever hear of fee for service. Those ideas are what made the country great, yours are whats ruining it. You commie. Go away.

  8. The biggest problem Trump,has is the total opposition from US media. They are out to start World War III. They also strangely do not seem to mind how many times Hillary breaks the law and how corrupts she is!

  9. Same tired old republican economic platform . The Rhino strings are all over this plan, they must have consulted the presidential candidate, “Maniacal” Mike Pence(his Indiana name), on this one.

  10. Mr Trump— Soften your tone, but stay the course for bringing America back. Let the yelling and name calling to the Dems who are so good at it with their politically correct way of weakening our country and bringing it to its knees while third world countries infiltrate and kill our people at will. Say what is true and hit the goofs hard because you know that they will do the same to you. The only saving grace is that you are right and they are wrong. Fellow conservative Republicans, stop bickering and get firmly behind this man. He will work with you in the end to make this country great again after 8 years of ruination by O’Bama and Clinton.

  11. The best possible plan for the growth of America’s economy in decades. Look at Hillary’s total opposite plan and watch the end of America.

  12. Mr. Trump gives no details so that his fawning followers can each assume that he will benefit them. He describes more of the trickle-down that reduces benefits to those who need them while reducing taxes on insiders. Economists consider these policies the reasons that the middle class has fallen behind and shrunk.

    He claims to support common men but surrounds himself with other Billionaires. Like Mr. Trump himself, none have made any publicly-recorded economic decision benefiting anyone but themselves.

    Cut taxes for everyone but give almost all of the benefit to insiders. To “balance the budget”, further reduce benefits to his own supporters (not just dem po black welfare queens). Non-college-educated white males fall farther behind while Billionaires benefit.

    Those who work the numbers say that the economy could shrink as much as 10%. Can Mr. Trump make sure that it only hurts other people but spares his supporters?

    Republicans get elected by falsely promising to ban contraception and abortion, require school prayer and ban gay marriage while rigging the economic system to subsidize insiders at the expense of everyone else. How is Mr. Trump any different?

    • The same could be said about FDR and JFK. No one will try to rig the economic system more than Hillary. While she talks About opposing Wall Street, she’s in bed with them on all issues.

      • Don’t repeat insults that you would like to be true. Show the evidence.

        Ms. Clinton has released whole books detailing her proposals. Recognized economists across the political spectrum have analyzed them. Not all agree with her priorities and goals but the numbers make sense. The only unknown is whether she will name Wall Street Billionaires to cabinet posts.

        Mr. Trump has released little detail but his advisers are ALL Wall Street Billionaires. Recognized economists say the numbers appear to be pulled from thin air. The Tax Foundation which already assumes a large boost in business revenue calculates a Federal revenue loss of $10 Trillion and deficit of $12 Trillion. The Moody analysis says it will destroy 10 Million jobs.

        None can see how trickle-down could generate such HUGE gains when it triggered such disaster during the eight Bush years. ALL find that trade agreements have been a net PLUS but that the benefits have not been shared fairly. Clinton MIGHT redistribute that but Trump promises NOT to. NONE blame regulation. The big problems are automation reducing the required number of employees and competition (gas replacing coal) ending some industries forever. NEITHER candidate can change that.

        I repeat! Cut the baseless insults and show me the money!

      • I do not see any evidence to support your claim. Are you just repeating what you wish were true.

        For the sake of argument, assume that all politicians are lying and that you cannot believe any statement. Judge based on what they have already done.

        Hillary would be an introvert nerd, manage the country competently and not do anything that is publicly harmful while being corrupt in her private life.

        Trump would personally profit while bankrupting what he touches. He would always make new friends but alienate those that the country has now. He would default on the national debt and since FICA assets are in U.S. bonds, default on Social Security. That would also erase a significant fraction of retirees savings. He would tell everyone to “just sue me”. Finally, he might be just as corrupt in his private life but we could not project that because he hides his past.

        • If you don’t see any evidence of my claim, you’re either not paying attention or can’t accept the facts.I am basing on what I said based on the evidence of her behavior throughout her political career. For example: the $100.00 investment she invested in the stock market got $1,000.00 back in a very short time. When she fired the travel department when they first came to The White House. She did that so she could give that office to her good friends. When she was asked if she had fired them, she said “no.” Upon investigation it was determined she had no basis on which to fire them and they were re-hired. The continual lies about her illegal server. Even the director of the FBI said she had lied. Her lies concerning her arrival in an African country, claiming she was ambushed and had to run to safety. The news film of that event proved she was lying. If you don’t see any evidence to support my claim, either you aren’t paying attention or you just can’t accept the truth. Her past demonstrates she would not be an introvert nerd, would not manage the country competently (her record as a Senator and Secretary of State was a failure).

          For the record, I am not a Trump supporter either. I believe neither candidate is worthy of the job. But, it’s my guess that Hillary will be elected and then you can judge if what I’ve said is true.

          • Repeating what must be true because you heard it from others of the same political persuasion provides no evidence at all, merely fear to disagree.

            Politifact, the Pulitzer prize-winning fact-checking project, determined that Hillary was actually the most truthful candidate (of either Party) in the 2016 election season. And in general Politifact has determined that Hillary is more honest than most (but not all) politicians they have tracked over the years.

            Jill Abramson now of the Guardian but a former reporter for the Wall Street Journal and former Executive Editor of the New York Times believed and went out to prove those accusations. She failed to do that and was surprised by what she did find.

            “As an editor I’ve launched investigations into her business dealings, her fundraising, her foundation and her marriage. As a reporter my stories stretch back to Whitewater. I’m not a favorite in Hillaryland. That makes what I want to say next surprising. Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy.”

            Once one decides that EVERYBODY else must be either ignorant or bribed, it is best to examine one’s own sources. Get some that are not rewarded for repetition but are rewarded for finding new dirt and proving it. If Ms. Clinton were powerful enough to take out every one of them then Mr. Trump would not have a chance anyway.

          • Your reply is insulting and gratuitous.. Unlike many Democrats and Republicans, I double or triple source my information and I don’t get it solely from one political persuasion.

            At this point, we’ll have to agree to disagree. Based on your replies, I’m certain I won’t change your positions, nor will you change mine.

          • When I see the same accusations almost word-for-word in multiple sources but without enough information to verify them, I assume them to be “I would feel so good if that were true so I will repeat it as if it were.” I also refrain from considering them to be confirmatory sources. For that reason, I do not repeat all that is floating around about Mr. Trump.

            I referred you to people who have actually spoken with many of the principals and who have gone to great effort checking the facts. They have web sites that drill down to whatever level of detail one desires. I do not understand why you would consider that either insulting or gratuitous. I had assumed (and I do hope that it is true) that you have an open mind eager for new information.

            For this audience, it might be better if I say that I was just being sarcastic and that you misinterpreted it because you are against me. I don’t feel good doing that but understand that it has been known to work here.

  13. And in all of this, what will happen to the middle class? What will happen to the poor? It’s of foregone conclusion that the wealthy will benefit here.

  14. Attention, put your darken glasses, as the bright lite will knock your socks off!!!!!!!

  15. Trump is by no means perfect and neither is any candidate that he has beat.The Best trait of Donald Trump, he does not march lock step with the liberals or conservatives; he is his own man and not owned by the NWO.
    AS for all of the Commie/Liberal Trolls and AKLady:
    Liberals act because of an ideological fervor embedded in their DNA.
    They operate on a different wave length than civil society.
    Impartial reasoning and negotiating doesn’t pacify the Liberal mind, but validates and encourages them.
    When we try and negotiate with a Liberal, stating undeniable truths, it signals a weakness and emboldens their efforts.
    Democrat Party and Nursery for Sin:
    Ever notice that the left is literally filled to the brim with nut’s. The global warming crowd is only one nut in the bucket. Think about it – they have the Global Warming Algorite crowd, Tree Huggers and Frog Kissers, Peta, Green Peace, Marxist, Communist, Socialist, the Politically Correct crowd, Union Thugs, Gays, Lesbians, transvestites, people who like having sex with Animals, baby killers and the list goes on and on and on.
    I haven’t even scratched the surface yet. It’s as if the Left-Wing of the Democrat party has become the breeding ground for Moral Decadence. Anything immoral that we as a people face each day seems to have originated from that zone of the Left-Wing. It’s like a nursery for sin or something! – Author unknown.

  16. THIS TIME THO, MONEY WALKS AND POOP SQUAKS HAS HIT A ROCK WALL IF DONALD TRUMP HAS TO DO WITH IT; AS IT HAS SHOWN UP IN THIS NEWS ARTICLE..

    THE ONLY TIME MONEY IS INVOLVED IF YOU ARE THE VICTIM OR IF IT’S A PAY OFF FOR GREECING THE PALM OF THE HIT MAN ETC!

    POLITICO’S ALWAYS PLAY FOR MONEY, THAT’S HOW THEY ALL GET RICH BY HANGING AROUND IN THE HALLS WAITING FOR A PASSER BY WHO WANTS TO UNLOAD A FULL BRIEF FOR A TRICK, CONTRACT ETC.

    TERM LIMITS DON’T EXIST IS WHY THESE DIRTY GAMES ARE PLAYED WITH ALL CROOKS EVER IN THE CONGESS OR IN ANY OTHER GOVT’ OFFICE AWAITS THE CANDY MAN TO SHOW UP!

    BERNIE THE CONGRESS MAN, IS HOW A BAGGER FROM DIRT FLOORS CAN WIGGLE HIS WAY TO FILL UP THE BANK ACCOUNT TO BY HIS FIRST $600,000.00 HOME WITH ECONOMY IN ACTION!

    iF BENERIE CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU BY JOINING CONGRESS FOR ALL OF THE FUN AND GAMES THAT RECREATION CENTER HAS TO OFFER INCLUDING FREE HAIR CUTS, PENSIONS AND ALL THE REST!

  17. How is the same trickle-down that is of, by and for the Billionaires that Mr. Trump uses as advisers any kind of a “vision”? What this article calls a “vision” is merely ad-lib campaign promises. They need not hold together because he plans no effort to accomplish any of them.

    He gives no details so that you can pretend for a while that he has any intent to benefit you.

    If trickle-down worked then we would have all gotten rich under President duh-bya. Instead the economy tanked while a few Billionaire campaign contributors and crony’s profited. Don’t blame President Obama for a blowup that started even before he entered the 2008 race or for a Clinton budget surplus turning into a massive deficit.

    Considering how your own life changed, do you really want more of the same?

  18. It’s obvious that the elite establishment on both sides try to find fault with Trump because they know that Trump will actually push for some real change. Unlike Hillary who is a corrupt liar who has been bought and paid for and will maintain the status quo established by Obama and Bush. Like continuing the borrowing and spending that got us into the mess we are currently in, with about $20 trillion in national debt. The elite establishment also love the bad trade deals like the TPP and NAFTA and want to bring over more illegal immigrants, refugees, and H-1B and H-2B workers to keep the cheap labor, or keep sending jobs to third world countries where they can pay a few dollars per day with no benefits. You can always tell the true change agent because they will be the person attacked the most. That’s how Trump became the last man standing after competing against 16 candidates. Hopefully, he can knock down Hillary and be the last man standing. Trump knows about business, and Pence knows how to put a plan into place within government to reduce taxes, reduce debt, and increase jobs. Trump/Pence 2016

    • If Millertrump is elected, well, civilization had a good run, I guess that’s the change . President Pence(I just threw up in my mouth a little, I know Maniacal Mike, he was my congressfascistman), will have his bigoted, Koch tied, NRA gun oiled, personal rights stealing hands full; administering both domestic and foreign affairs while changing Millertrump’s diapers and making sure that his tiny hands stay out of the treasury . Business man? 5 bankruptcies, mob deals, thousands of law suits for fraud against citizens and businesses, out sourcing his products sending jobs to third world workers, his secret tax returns …..infinity. Millertrump is (‘attaked’) scrutinized because he opens his mouth and some sociopathic ugliness and/or ignorance, fabrication of fact or bigotry fall out. Don’t be surprised if Jeb or some other evil agent of NWO isn’t the candidate, soon. Everyday another state finalizes and closes its candidate submission list so the GOP needs to act quickly if they plan a change. I can see them now huddled around strategists, state astrologers, comparing states still with open ballots and possible delegate counts if they remove ‘The Don’ today, or looking for a loophole or a sinister Karl Rove plan to skirt the system.
      You have a lovely bank teller’s view of how rosie it could be, but that view just says you haven’t really researched the candidate. Start with Grandpa Drumpf 1885 and work forward, its appalling at the absolute least. He is not as ugly as the Bush family but their in power sans office, they can’t be removed, Dangerous Don can be.

  19. I hope Dr. Ben Carson, Mike Pense, Huckabee, and other conservative advisors are able to keep Trump focused on attacking Hillary and speaking of protecting America and jobs, jobs, jobs.

    Hillary is highly corrupt and is a continuation of Obama’s policies on steroids.

  20. Right on the nose Steven Coy now if the idiots not smart enough to realize Hellary will ruin this country the rest of the way,thanks to Obummer,we can fix this mess!!!!!

  25. Little Bright Feather

    It’s the Sanders voters he can get- they still have a brain. Hillary’s supporters are all brain dead zombies (not kidding) -= ever hear them try to speak ? They repeat one phrase or word over and over as they have been PROGRAMMED to do – they have no thinking mind left. They are literally “not there”. No hope for those. Can’t reach a mind that’s gone. I’m not kidding or being fictitious on this – I’m serious. Just listen to a few of them ! Their mind is GONE !

    But Sanders people are still mentally functioning.Now just to get them NOT to want Communism !

  26. Trump speaks OUR language and EXPRESSES OUR concerns and needs, while some of you carp because he speaks out and never puts his foot in his mouth because he knows exactly what he is doing and since you haven’t been successful and having 10 billion in money, how can you even judge what he is, does, says, etc.? You can’t! If you want to vote for communism, then vote for Hillary but stop carping when we DO NOT want a politician and lies and betrayals once we elect them, but someone who has the accomplishments, history, intelligence and skills America needs in getting rebuilt. By the way, Marxism is not the real communism, as my spouse could tell you having lived several years under communism and by the grace of God finally was able to escape. We, are the Government and we have allowed administrations to screw up royally and did nothing. So, now we have someone who can put the screws on the others: leftists, democrats, liberals, and you carp? Shows how little you know about America and real Americans. We all know Hillary is a RICO criminals, that the democrats ALWAYS have protected other democrats no matter how vile, unless like Hastert they upset a bit of their applecart! Remember, they were the Tories during our Founding Fathers time but then changed their name to democrat (as that sounded more like for freedom!) and continued since the early 1860’s to push for government rule, and not accept that we the people could be the government as our Founding Fathers set up our Constitution and Rights. But check out Judicial Watch online as they finally got the FOIA documents on Hillary staffers and therein lies the way to file a complaint on the Clinton Foundation. In other words, there are more ways than one to skin a cat.

    • Well said- soo true! The Democratic Party and their candidate base are all about corruption,ignoring our constitution, big govt., socialism/communism,
      Muslim immigration, abortions, atheism, gay rights, ignoring our second amendment rights, promoting climate change, —- no common sense and they are the Satin Within America. They have lost their way and sold their soles to the devil. That is why so many Democrats are evacuating that party
      ( no mans land). Go Trump!

  27. As you can see, the person we love to hate is back!! @AKLady2015, if you are so vehemently against anything we have to say, why do you continue to frequent our conversations, knowing you are not wanted? It could be for one of two reasons. Either you have absolutely no friends who care to discuss politics with you, or you truly believe what you say. Whichever it is, I must commend you for being so brave. To come to us conservatives with your beliefs, most of which are even more ridiculous than the liberals, and believe that you actually hold some level of validity among us, that truly deserves a gold star. Now, if you truly seek our discussions because it is friends you are so ill-informed, that even Bernie supporters would be embarrassed to converse with you. I guess the saying rings true “high school never ends”. It must be a struggle to raise the level of incompetence on a daily basis, a feat that even Obama himself has yet to master. With that, I give you not only a standing ovation, but also, a gold star (scratch n sniff at that)! If you still don’t understand the point I’m driving home, well, take your own advice and up your reading comprehension level. How many people are you going to send the same response to? Is it that big of a job for your severely under developed brain to construct a new response? If so, you may want to try lumosity, there’s a free trial. As sure as I stand before you, you will launch a personal attack on me, which by all means, please do. There is nothing that you will say that will even be close to the truth in your words, but I always enjoy a good ole knee slapper, but just remember, it is not I who seeks the attention of the patrons of this discussion. I am merely calling what I see, and that is a pathetic, desperate attention seeker. I do not apologize for a word I have said, nor will I ever. However, I do feel bad that you are not able to converse with people on your level, but those people are at least being cared for in an institution.

  28. If Hillary wins the election the Country that our forefathers put together for all Americans will be dissipated. The Democratic Party only thinks globally – only globally. Why? Schizophrenic Power Desire. Who cares about being President of the United States when you can be Leader of the World. The Democratic Party’s main two methods in politics are 1) Divide and Conquer and 2) Untruth. Just go back over the Obama Presidency and theses methods are so apparent. They simply believe ‘the ends justify the means’.

  29. The economy will now go down the drain with his tax cuts. The rich will get richer while the country gets poorer. The conservative dream.-
