The man has an obsession with raising giant phallic symbols on the world's most valuable real estate with his name prominently displayed upon them for all to see.

This man is running for the office of President of the United States of America.

Extrapolate.

It continues to be hilarious watching most of the other Republican candidates
seemingly unable to understand why Trump has jumped to the front.

I'm buying some extra Jiffy Pop for Thursday night.

It's not him, it's what he is saying. They all had a chance before he entered to drop all the political correct speech and simply talk about issues that concern Americans. Its been a long time since Americans have heard a person running for office who does not talk like a politician.

I don't think Hillary Clinton will win the nomination. She is sinking. She just does not seem like she can handle anything unless it's in a cage and will follow her rules.

It could be Bernie Sanders, but I think it will be Elizabeth Warren.

So then why has he jumped up front? What is he saying?

Just give us one reason. I'm having the hardest time finding one single supporter that can engage and articulate why. Which is why he's going to fail miserably at any debate.

One reason is what he said about illegal aliens who commit crimes after entering the U.S. They need to be stopped and deported.

We will see Thursday how he does in the debate.

Concerning Hillary, I think after she falls apart on the campaign trail, the Democratic Party will draft Elizabeth Warren.

For one, I love the fact that he's standing up to the Republican establishment, but not in a Tea Party way. He hasn't sold his soul to interest groups, simply because he couldn't care less what people think of him and doesn't need the money. He says what he thinks is right and doesn't back down from it.
Policy wise, he is spot on about Mexico's growth and how the U.S. gets no benefit from it. U.S. companies are getting labor from Mexico with no penalty from the U.S. when we purchase all of their companies crap. Taxing and putting restrictions on Mexican imports will not only cause Americans to buy more domestic products, but also take the money collected in the taxes and build a frikin wall. And adding tougher Illegal immigration policy will help with that. However, we need cooperation with the Mexican government and Trump is the only one who can see Mexico getting their way with us. Trump knows business and I think he's the kind of guy who will demand the cooperation necessary to improve our relationship with them.

/QUOTE]


Do you think this is new? How many before him have said this? Or do you like the fact that he said MOST Mexicans who come here are rapists and murderers? Or was it the fact that he made it clear he wasn't just talking about illegal immigrants when he brought Jeb Bush's wife into the conversation? Is this why you like him, because he says what others have said but with much more racism to it?

Why can't anyone give me an honest reason as to why they are supporting this man?

You're living in absolute denial if you think Trump is saying something substantive and Hillary is falling apart. That just shows me one thing; you're only reading the media that sings to your choir. You aren't reading enough to get the truth.

The biggest concern with Warren for the Republicans is that she'll take more of the voters that are on the fence with Hillary. Because, essentially, most Republicans view her as Hillary minus the baggage. That idea is not a pleasant one to imagine because it's the questions and consistent hypocrisy of Hillary that keeps her from holding a 30 point lead in the polls.

How libertarian of you

You really think spending billions on a wall is the answer?

If you think Trump will have any pull with Mexico than you're fooling yourself.

Immigration is the new litmus test for GOP candidates. Cruz is clean except for wanting an expansion of the H1-B tech visas. Many Americans aren't necessarily xenophobic, but when 92,000,000 aren't in the workforce they want those jobs for Legal citizens first. No they don't want to be picking lettuce in the Central Valley, but IT jobs are vanishing due to outsourcing from Indian companies like Tatra. The chamber of commerce wants cheap labor and so many candidates are soft where Trump is bold and it resonates.

On the left people like Soros fund the Open Borders Project. Voter ID laws are shot down. And here is my statement that will kick the hornets nest wide open.

More immigrants mean more votes for Democrats.

Mexico is one of the fastest growing economies in the world. There's a stereotype out there that Mexicans are uneducated people who only do jobs that no one wants to do. Well, that's simply not true. Mexico has a highly skilled labor force and American companies can still afford to pay them dirt cheap wages for skilled labor. After that, they turn around and sell the products in the U.S. But the U.S. economy isn't getting anything from it.

So the U.S. Economy doesn't get anything from cheap labor?

If American companies can find just as capable, skilled labor cheaper foreignly, then the private sector is losing jobs. Thusly, more middle class Americans are working lower paying jobs and paying less amounts in taxes because they're not generating as much income. Job outsourcing to both India and Mexico is killing our economy. The companies profits will expand, but will leave middle and lower class Americans in massive trouble.
