An End to Free Trade

Perhaps no single proposal by Donald Trump is as striking and antiquated as his strategy to keep American jobs from being "taken away" by foreign countries, such as Mexico and China.

Trump doesn't consider international trade to be a win-win proposition as do most modern economists. Instead, Trump believes that trade wars have clear winners and losers, and that currencies and trade restrictions must be used to ensure victory.

At various times throughout his campaign, Trump has pledged to put in place a 20% tariff on all imported goods. He told an audience that he would have told the CEO of Ford Motor Co. that he would have the government impose a 35% tariff on all Ford products if a Ford motor plant was shut down in Detroit and moved to Mexico. He has said that he would even impose a Chinese-specific tariff to offset the effects of Chinese currency manipulation.

Five-Point Tax Plan

Along with his 20% tariff on imported goods, Trump also wants to impose an additional 20% tax on companies that hire foreign workers.

The fifth part of the five-point plan is a simplified tax code with the following brackets: 1% tax on the first $30,000 in income, 5% tax on all income between $30,000 and $100,000, 10% tax on all income between $100,000 and $1 million, and a 15% rate on all income above $1 million.

Foreign Policy

Trump projects a hardline stance on illegal immigration, turmoil in the Middle East, and negotiations with China, Russia and Iran.

President Trump would push to build a physical wall on the border with Mexico. He proposed sending Exxon Mobil to Iraq to "take back the oil" to starve ISIS. However, he refuses to say whether he'd commit more American troops overseas.

Most people say Bush was lousy. Obama ran on being the anti Bush and turned out to be Bush on steroids-not what the doctor ordered. Hillary looks like she will be Obama on steroids-she helped craft the tpp and now distances herself from it-lying POS.

Another Bush while on the menu-I don't think we have the stomach for. o trump it is and maybe Bernie. he is a bit socialist for my taste, but a repub congress can balance that out.

Make my nothing burger medium rare.

Lewandowski insisted Thursday that Borders "never worked for the Trump campaign in any capacity," citing the fact that Borders was never paid and did not have a contract -- something Borders does not deny...

"Like many people he was going through the process of potentially doing work for the campaign," Lewandowski said. "Like we do with everyone (who reaches out), we tell them why don't you put a plan together and we'll vet that."

He said others were also putting together proposals and Borders was in no way about to be hired by the campaign.

Lewandowski said phone conversations between him and Borders in no way reflect the seriousness of the relationship, telling CNN that he returns calls of many people interested in playing a role in the campaign.

In the recordings of phone calls, Lewandowski discusses potentially hiring Borders to lead the campaign's Arizona operations before telling him the campaign would need to downplay him as an "overzealous volunteer" in a later phone call.

After learning of Borders' Facebook posts -- which include a doctored image of President Barack Obama in a turban with a beard, several photos of Obama alongside Adolf Hitler, and another photo saying Obama was "twice elected because the color of his skin rather than the content of his character -- Lewandowski tried to distance the campaign.

Sounds like a mole from the GOP or the slimmy Libs(nothing is beneath them).
The takeaway here is this guy called Trumps campaign, they said show us what you got kid. Borders then whips out his junk and pisses on the Trump campaign.
Then he was told he sucks and to take a hike. Not to be dissuaded his liberal or GOP backers told him to double down on being an honest Trump staffer.
This is going to be funny when Trump hires detectives and lawyers to weed out the Rat in the woodpile.

Reasons: Obama sold us all to his Banker friends, Wall Street, The Spies. and the Military. And gave "Presidential Cufflinks" to his Monica (Jamie Dimon). That's plenty. It's payback time for the War Party of The Rich's two Goldman Rats levers to pull. ( vote Trump or anyone else).

Speaking of artwork, I don't understand modern art. In one of my prior companies, they used to display art work.One was marked at 15k and was grey with three black dots and quite a few were very similar with same price ranges.

I don't understand it. if I get a board paint it solid and splash a few dots, I get 15k per board. I just need to do 10-15 boards a year and I am set??

The Republican nominee will be Jeb Bush, Scott Walker or possibly Marco Rubio.

End of message.

Whenever I see Donald Trump, I think of Archie Bunker. One day, I thought I'd google the names "Donald Trump" and "Archie Bunker" and I was shocked to learn that I'm not the first to see the similarities. He might have ideas I agree with, but he just doesn't have the grace to be a statesman. He certainly doesn't have the experience to navigate the political system to get anywhere near to bringing any of his ideas to fruition. And he lacks the polish necessary to represent us to the world. Wouldn't you find his manner a little embarrassing? As an old chair-potato, Archie was funny. As a leader of a nation, perhaps not so much.

As lower-case leader, he's used to having the final word and everyone else just doing as he says. He'd go out of his mind when he learns that Members and other world leaders don't answer to him. He probably thinks he knows this already, which is sad. I think being President would actually be quite a downer for him and his mismatched, brusque, heavy-handed, final-word leadership skills (however charming it might have seemed on the Apprentice). And on a world stage? Fuggedaboutit!

Yes, but think about it: if he and France's Sarkozy win, he can brag about dating his wife.

That's part of Trump's appeal! People are tired of politicians who are acting like politicians.

Having manners, class, poise, and being articulate and intelligent kind of grates on a person after a while. I'm much more comfortable with someone the rest of the world will think is a joke, you know the guy who was the C student in college, Frat party moron. The kind of guy that could get this country in some really serious trouble. We need someone like GW again (not his brother - he's not enough of a "i feel it in my gut" cowboy).
