    I actually like Trump, for the most part, from a policy standpoint. But he won't be judged on policy by a large percentage of the swing voters, many just don't like his style. And sadly style wins elections just as much as policy these days. This is why I think Warren or Sanders could be very troublesome for Trump. I think they would be able to steal back a lot of voters that Trump stole from the Democrats last time. But honestly I hope your economy keeps rolling and Trump wins again. Not because I think Trump is fantastic but because I want America to succeed. It's good for America (and I like Americans) and that is typically good for Canada too.
    Mike, you do understand that lower taxes is just borrowing money that will have to be paid back later if you don't cut spending, which Trump has NOT done. So yes the economy grows the first year, but will tank later. And the first signs of that have already appeared.
    Bottom line, no matter if you're on the right or the left, you cannot run the government by hiring incompetent ppl. The dude in charge of the economy is the same guy who used to put the financing together for B movies here in Hollywood! I've never seen, right or left, a government with unqualified ppl at EVERY level. You can't win with a team like that.

    This explains why the party is doubling down on their strategy, they don't intend to change at all. They seem to be saying "join us or go to hell".
    Why would they change a strategy that worked 2 months ago?
    In 2016 made a few strategic mistakes that cost the election even though they won more votes than the other guy. Lesson learned, I'm sure they won't make it again and whoever is selected will win the Presidency. I don't think Warren will get the nomination as she already has a few problems. The person selected will be someone 100% certain to trounce Trump. No risk will be taken this time.

    If Trump makes a deal with China soon, the markets may pop back 15% instantly, and that might change things a lot.

    Of course I do understand "that lower taxes is just borrowing money that will have to be paid back later". This is something I talk about all the time. And if Trump's deficits were a change in policy then you'd be making a great point. But was the government prior to Trump run by competent people? Because they basically doubled the national debt of a 200+ year country in 8 years. That's hard to do.

    You must not have been paying attention over the last 30 years then...

    You need to realize the midterms are not the general election. They didn’t gain in the senate at the same time.

    Why not alter ? Gee, I don’t know. Anti Israel, Anti white, pro illegal immigration, open borders, and Fuck Whitey isn’t the best strategy for this country.

    Iíll never consider voting Democrats. Republican politicians worthless, but the Dems are the outright enemy. I donít say that as hyperbole. Theyíve done everything they can to turn me away.

    Protecting criminals, taking away freedom, pushing the anti-white agenda, their disinterest in protecting the border, instructing their voters to harass others, threatening to nuke their own citizens if they donít willingly give up their guns, verbal attacks toward anyone that does take their handouts, lack of cuts to spending. What they did to Kavanaugh also

    There are very few reasons to support this party.

    There are some Democrats in Ohio I would support because we are not emboldened to the coast as much but I would be very hard press to vote for one. I just do not think their policies have America's best interests in mind. Global interests? Sure. Social interests sure. I don't like every Republican and most do suck ass but I do know that at least some of them are trying to fight for this country.

    Stands With DNA does not

    This will make the voters in Massachusetts happy.

    Over 7,000 people in Massachusetts have been sent home or are working without pay during the #TrumpShutdown. Until @realDonaldTrump
    re-opens the government, I'm donating my salary to @HIASrefugees, a nonprofit that helps refugees and makes our country stronger in the process.

    Every time I think she can't say something dumber...she totally tops herself.
    If I don't respond to you it means I have you on ignore, which means you are a douchenozzle.

    Hey Stands With DNA, why don't you donate to a Federal Worker program? That's the obvious answer.

    Somebody at the DNC needs to tell her to go away.
