1. The dems are going to lead the country to financial ruin if they implement their “free everything” plans. The US will spend more on interest payments than military spending within the next decade. 2. The dems are agitating the border crisis with their stance that anyone in the world who can illegally cross into the country will receive free healthcare. 3. The country will be even more divided if Trump loses. The fake news outlets, Media Matters propaganda, and the woke SJW Twitter crowd will be validated and hatred against Trump supporters will be at an all time high if he loses. 4. Trump is doing historic things for the country despite what the media says. He does have flaws and there are valid criticisms for his behavior but he is a net positive for the country 5. I don’t want to see the entire country turn into the same shithole heroin infested, homeless infested, and militantly intolerant Seattle or SF that democrats are entirely responsible for.
@DefNoZuck, not the OP of that comment I am not a Trump supporter by any means, but I am against Single Payer. Last week Trump passed a bill that would require more transparency in medical pricing. Not sure if it will work in practice, but in theory I 100% believe it is a step towards fixing the real problem with health Care. I have seen almost no media coverage on it.
Price transparency laws are written by industry suits. They are weak by design. Just wait to see how obfuscated the "transparent pricing" is. We can already see this with hospitals who were required to disclose prices of medical procedures on their website. They are so hard to read and understand, that they make little to no sense to the average Joe, whom these things were supposed to help in the first place.
I do agree single payer or Medicare for all aren't the right approach, but I think that a system closer to what France has is what America needs. Harmony between private healthcare companies and the government who functions as the piggy bank. It will fosho be a shit show in the short term but in the long term it's the only way forward.
You have to realize that we in tech are used to great benefits but you also have to understand that half of America is too poor to afford decent healthcare. Even our insurance right now is pathetic. The whole in network, copays, out of pocket max, etc caveats to a $15k/year for a single male is utter bullshit. I went to the doc 2 times last year, but still paid $300 for blood work and a physical, which BTW is "covered 100%"... Wtf.
Dude, I am 100% on your side of politics but i disagree with your statements
1) those policies are absolutely horrendous, but they wouldn't ever actually pass. You'd get marginal expansions to entitlements at best. Which is still bad, but is not "free everything for everyone" bad. And, for that matter it'll happen more or less regardless of who the president is. Maybe it happens after Trump leaves office, but what difference does delaying the inevitable by a few years make?
2) Trump hasn't meaningfully changed the situation on the ground at the border. While I'm sure that dems would make it "worse" (from the antiimmigrant position), it's going to get worse anyway 3) disagree. Conservatives are more likely to suck it up and get on with their lives. How many weeks long riots were there when obama won? Because I saw what happened in Oakland when Trump won
4) what has he actually done? Nothing has changed! Every time he tries to actually do something, congress or the courts stop him!
I'm fucking sick of the left pandering to every intersectional group they can find. Stop telling white people they have to feel guilty and blaming them for "having privilege". Depression rates are on the rise, families are on the decline, manufacturing jobs are disappearing (although likely more from automation than globalization), and people are turning to opiods. Show some sympathy/empathy for these folks who represent the majority of our country rather than always blaming them for everything.
And by the way I'm a Muslim, brown, immigrant from an extremely poor country ... but the very fact that my identity even makes a difference in this issue just proves my point even more.
Because he explicitly puts America first. Both in words and in action. He’s against the supervision of this country by not letting in illegal immigrants. He’s giving people jobs by having an amazing economy. He’s literally letting people out of prison. He’s negotiating with other nations for world peace and better trade deals. He’s also for lower taxes.
If you’re against trump, you must have felt for the “he’s racist” line without any real criticism of policies.
Why is america the only one responsible for international conflicts?
Trade war with china is a much needed reaction to hostility from them that has been there for a decade and has been getting worse over time
War with Iran, I am against it, but Trump isnt (unilaterally) responsible for it. Israel has been openly urging America to glass the desert for years. And, hell, unless you're going full tinfoil, Iran is the one who has escalated hostilities by attacking tankers
Norh Korea? He appears to be brokering peace, not war (though I am _extremely_ skeptical that the Norks are sincere, and fully expect that all of Trump's efforts will fail)
The change in the corporate tax structure altered the environment from companies literally fleeing the country to one where they have a level playing field and an incentive to create jobs here vs overseas. Average citizen isn’t able to recognize how dramatic a shift this is, but it is massive. Compliment Congress or Trump, but it’s the mast dramatically positive thing for wealth creation the government has done since the 90s balanced budget.
Sadly it doesn’t mean jobs are not also being sent overseas. Friendly business taxes doesn’t mean a corporation stops having a fiduciary duty to their shareholders to do the needful to make more money. If they can save a buck outsourcing, they will even in the Trump economy.
The reason voters don’t care about this is because it is because of this point. There’s no protections against outsourcing other than an angry tweet from Trump.
Imagine it was only in Spanish and you wanted to pee... I can’t believe these people are trying to convince me that speaking to the nation in Spanish is okay... America 2019 ladies and gentlemen.. or wait, we are not allowed to say it anymore lolz
These ignorant pricks are trying to convince me that bathroom sighs should be in Spanish because the picture is easy to understand. That’s why ppl hate dislike like you, this is how we win this country
The economy is not bad. NATO is more or less paying their share. The trade deals he struck with Canada and Mexico will significantly benefit US agri and manufacturing industries. I’m thoroughly enjoying the tax cuts he passed. He’s not big on valuing immutable characteristics like gender and race. Would rather people be judged by merit. He seems to respect the border, to some degree.
He’s a little juvenile on twitter, but that’s part of who he is.
Unlike the liberals, Trump supports law enforcement, including the Constitution. It’s unpopular, but absolutely necessary for a society to function IMO. I wish he wasn’t as arrogant and didn’t tweet like a teenager, but I can live with that considering all the goodness he’s doing for this country.
He turned a surprisingly good President. I dislike his personality (except the middle finger to the leftist media and big tech), but I love his tax breaks, pro-US independent international policy, and commitment to border security. I really don't know what else to wish for.
Did you said ethics, education and family? I guess you need to double check your self. The guy had no ethics, is up for family separation and threatens the schools to not realise his transcript. What are you smoking bro?
Because I’m too tired of politicians bullshitting their ways through and saying things they don’t believe in. I think most Americans share the same sentiment. Id rather vote for someone who does what he says even sometimes he got it wrong, rather than someone who’s says something and does another.
So you belong in white demographic and feel uncomfortable because some people shouted that phrase, while what they did was disgusting, was there any reason for you to be believe that Democrats did that? What do you have to say about white supremacists and I belong in minority, I'm an immigrant and I have faaaarrrr more of these incidents happened to me in a month than you will have in your entire lifetime.
I can't vote, but if I could vote, I would consider voting for Trump. I believe fundamentally that the president does not matter, and that the civil service bureaucracy and executive agencies mostly move under their own momentum. Because of this, the presidency _does not matter_. Trump is the funniest candidate on Twitter, and given that nothing about the president matters anyway, this is as good a reason as any
(Note: literally everything he's tried to do, safe the tax cut, has been blocked. I take this as proof of the presidency's powerlessness. If I had seen Trump actually succeed at doing bad things, I would feel very differently, and could not in good conscience support him)
