PostSubject: Who is this guy   Sun Aug 02, 2015 7:42 pm

I'm not endorsing him but thought this was interesting.

Donald Trump........who he REALLY is....
The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something.

They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think.
And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others.
But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework. But, since most Americans won’t do their own research, here, in no particular order, is an overview of many of Trumps positions and plans:
1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.
2.) Speaking of the military, Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too.
3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles (which seem to support my comment in the last point):
American interests come first. Always. No apologies.
Maximum firepower and military preparedness.
Only go to war to win.
Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.
Keep the technological sword razor sharp.
See the unseen. Prepare for threats before they materialize.
Respect and support our present and past warriors.

4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.
5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U. S., once again creating jobs here.
6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.
7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.
8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to:
Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%
From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%
From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%
$1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%

9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.
10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country. Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.

On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.
12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.
13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.
14.) Trump opposes Common Core.
15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.
16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.
17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states' rights issue, not a federal issue.
18.) Trump supports the death penalty.
Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point:
“When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs.
They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.”
On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.
Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.
He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.
Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans. Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.
Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due. Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer.

Although I respect the opinion of Don, the endorsement given in this post does not change my view of Trump.  He may be a brilliant businessman, however government is not a business nor can he push his ideas through when there is a Congress and a Senate required for approval.  If the members are up for sale, he may be able to buy his way through on some issues. He is smart enough to know what appeals to the voters and that makes him a politician.  Building a wall is not a solution, but a temporary fix with rammifications.  Tearing down walls takes more courage and ingenuity.  He thinks he can restore respect for America with his ideas.  That remains to be seen.  At the moment, his public comments suggest the opposite.  Obama restored much respect lost during the GWB administration.  Talking war is not appealing to our allies.  If America was on the frontline, I wonder how much of his rhetoric would be appealing. 
When the war is "over there" it gains support.  If America happens to be "over there" attitudes change.  Ask the civilians of countries that have been on the frontline.  They strongly oppose war and with good reasons.

So how come we aren't hearing these lofty goals from the mouth of the Donald himself? Why does he waste air time with polarizing comments about Mexicans being rapists, Obama being a Kenyan, and all that crap? The Trump manifesto you cite is copied and pasted from a conservative blog. I'd much rather hear them from the horse's mouth although I doubt Trump has the blogger's skill with words.

PostSubject: Re: Who is this guy   Mon Aug 03, 2015 8:00 am

I appreciate the exchange of ideas and the sharing of personal research.  There is truth in both what Don has said and Abe's analysis.  From what I heard on FOX (and I hate to quote FOX) the word is "hands off" when it comes to negatives about Donald Trump - from anyone.  Donald Trump is powerful and controls many purses.  Every newscaster and politician expresses the opinion that he will not be the Republican candidate however his power is such that whoever is the candidate will not want his ire.  Thus, any negatives are limited even though they are known.

I have many beliefs about what should be done in every area of the political spectrum.  My educational background was political science, public administration and international law.  I worked in Washington, D.C. for the National Association of Manufacturers, a Republican front that served manufacturers as their lobbying organization.  I was also an honorary intern, working in Congress daily.  I worked for the 8th U.S. Army for five years in Seoul, Korea and spent plenty of time at officer events based on my contract classification.  I also participated in political events of an international nature sponsored by the Korean government based on my spouse's position as CFO for an international electronics company that was one of the first to go off-shore for cheap, exploited workers which is another story.  I also had a second job as an editor for all the financial publications of a Big 10 international CPA firm and was "special" as a woman in a Korean man's world.  On the side, I taught English as a Second Language to Korean businessmen.

Whatever I read that is political, whatever I think about what I read, and whatever I express is colored by my experience and personal values and beliefs that have changed over time and continue to change.  So is any reporting of a person's beliefs. Of one thing I am very clear:  what a politician says is not what he believes or what he does.  His motivation is self-serving and monetary.  His primary job is to keep his job and he will say or do anything to accomplish that end.  He may believe he is serving his country and some politicians actually do serve to some extent.  However, to make anything happen in Washington, D.C. requires putting one's conscience aside and making deals -deals that always hurt someone in order to benefit someone else. 

Some remarks, usually the off-the-cuff remarks, reveal  personal belief or intentions.  Sometimes making money and serving the country work together.  Those at the top continue to serve those at the top whether Republican or Democrat.  They just talk differently to please different funding organizations and lobbyists.

Back to Donald Trump.  There's nothing scarier than an egotistic person at Mr. Trump's level of ego, even if he is occasionally charitable.  I worked with Senators who definitely had God complexes.  That's how they get themselves in stupid situations - because they believe they are God.  A God complex is also common at the top of the international, executive towers - which explains how the GM execs came in private jets to beg forgiveness for their extravagance from the U.S. Congress.  They have no sense of reality regardless of what comes out of their mouths.

That's why revolutionaries who rise from common roots gain such popularity with common people.  They don't become gods until they gain the power - and power does corrupt - and absolute power doth corrupt absolutely. But in the beginning, they do have ideals that people share.

There is not one candidate running for President of the United States that I see as a contender for the President I want.  I still see that my man, President Obama, came through on his promises where he could in spite of bigotry and obstructionism targeted toward him regardless of the harm that it brought to the U.S.  If he had support for all the initial policies, people would have gone to work, taxes would be more equitable, and things would have gone into shape faster in spite of the impossible inheritance left for him which everyone seems to conveniently forget.  And - running the U.S. with religious dogma was never on his agenda. And family values, the stamp of the republican party, are evident.  So far, with great attempts to find something, his morals and his lovely family have been an excellent example to the families of the nation.

Women never cease to amaze me.  They continue to allow men to make their decisions for them when they possess the ability to turn this world from combat to cooperation and from financial disasters into financial efficiency.  They are the nurturing beings with the brains to go with it.  What the world needs is nurturing. We need to be in every boardroom, every governing body, and everywhere decisions are made.  Not in the majority always - but certainly there in more representation than presently.  We need all ethnic minorities represented and the greatest minds on earth working on the world's issues.  Yes, many women model the male power format - but not most.

I read it Don and you said you were not endorsing him, but sharing what you thought was interesting.
Sharing it however seemed to me that you shared his views - at least some of them and the response was based on that.
I think that DK's last post rather sums up my own feelings about the man and the current political process.  Fortuantely, I don't hear all the daily political BS but get a summarized version as seen from a more neutral viewpoint.  What I see and hear affect my impression of the process and those involved.  I detest arrogance and Trump is full of it.  Modesty doesn't make it in the political world, however it eventually can be seen in words and deeds.  The use of "I" and "Me" tells much.  When "We the people..." comes through it tends to signify that we are all in this together.  "We" can make it happen.  One person alone (the "I" person) doesn't work for the benefit of all.

It is obvious that the US Election process requires change.  An even playing field includes the amount of money a politician can spend to promote their ideas.  That is a plus factor with Bernie Sanders who is being funded by grassroots people.  I think he sounds too good to be true and that is a factor that places some doubt in my mind.  The views he has expressed touch the common man.  He appears to have a handle on what is needed at the grassroots level.  Providing a security blanket is something needed especially at this time.  The opposition try to dismiss or degrade him by calling him a "Socialist".  Actually, IMV, that is something our country needs.  Countries that have a social net are doing well and the people feel secure.  I can personally vouch for that.  Without the healthcare program I currently enjoy, we would either be dead or destitute.  Higher taxes are used as a negative.  When one considers that paying higher taxes means that people earn enough to pay them and that the taxes they pay is returned in benefits, they pay the taxes willingly.  Politicians who promote reduction in taxes as a ploy for votes is old hat.  The tax breaks apply to the already rich.  It means little for those unemployed.  Having a job that pays enough to live is more important than a promised tax break. 
I often wonder what would happen if people en masse refused to pay taxes until such time as the large corporation and the super rich paid their fair share.  People have power.  They can exercise that power in what products they buy.  Ultimately, the consumer is in control, they just don't recognize it.

Maybe it is time we had a jerk for President!

How many nations have a nice guy for a leader? 
Obama has been perfectly decent  and has been treated despicably at every turn.  Is Russia's leader a nice guy? 

Just wondering.

Ah yes, money talks. Money provides access and confidence. Money buys staff who do research.  There was a movie on Hallmark about making a schmuck into a politician.  Trump has a head start.  He's no schmuck, but any class he musters does not appear to be innate.  Personally, I prefer a president with class. 

I'm sorry, I don't buy the email gate as a reason for the totality of Hillary's qualifications to be dumped.  I do see Jeb Bush with a lot of his brother's characteristics, including rewriting history.  I don't like that. 

From a family values perspective, Hillary and Jeb exhibit family loyalty and values.  Not that three marriages is a lack of family values, but Trump's three times devalues the vow of marriage if it matters anymore to people.

It seems that Trump is the least example of "Republican stated values."  Unfortunately, his ability to garner publicity puts his life in open display whereas the other candidates are more of a mystery. 

Democrats don't preach religious dogma so it's more difficult to compare them to their "beliefs." 

Funny how President Clinton keeps being brought up in relation to Hillary yet the wives of the rest of candidates of either party are not discussed.

Ah, the whole thing is just such a tragic comedy of no real issues and voting as an emotional response to carefully orchestrated media.

The Presidential entertainment continues.


Ben Carson says that the pyramids in Egypt were built to store grain. 

What happened to the grain?  Perhaps he will add to his theory that the Israelites took it with them when they left Egypt and it sustained them for 40 years as they wandered in the desert.  Since there is no trace of the wandering theory, perhaps they ate the evidence?
Carson further claimed that he turned down an offer to attend West Point Military Academy.  Since that claim was proved false, he now says that the offer was "informal."  It would be prudent for the  candidates to be a bit more careful in what they say.  Everything is recorded and their off-hand remarks can come back to bite them.

Carson is clearly a nut and the nuttier he gets the better  he  does.  SCARY.

He has a tunnel vision education and experience, probably very intelligently versed regarding pediatric surgery.

A person with tunnel vision is not the right person for President.  One can be an expert in one subject and ignorant on others.  A President must be able to see the total picture.  It is a tough job.  Imagine dealing with domestic and world issues on a daily basis.  A good President surrounds him-herself with experts in areas where one is weak  Even with the input from experts, the final decision is still on the President.  Unfortunately, when one is cautious, it is viewed by many as weakness whereas I see it as a strength.  Once an action is taken it cannot be reversed without consequences.  The same is true of words we speak or write.  Making sure we say what we mean and that the meaning is understood with clarity is something we face everytime we make a post.
