DONALD TRUMP – PART FOUR

My reason for publishing this series is to document the factual positions that Trump has actually promised he would use to improve every one’s life in America, white, black, and yellow. He has never shown any bias except when dealing with inept individuals. There is no place on earth populated with more inept people than Washington D.C. I will repeat my reason for trying to get voters to make sure we elect a leader with a proven success record. Liking Trump is not a factor and the other individuals who are capable leaders I could support like Cruz, Fiorina, Carson or Kasich have zero chance of being nominated as they don’t have enough financial support. The rest of the candidates are pure politicians that will promise everything and deliver nothing.

If you will get beyond not liking Trump’s boisterous demeanor and focus on his agenda you will see that his overall objectives are aimed at common sense objectives that will help everyone. I don’t agree on some of his objectives or his flamboyant persona but if he can just get jobs created alone he can stop the bleeding. How many of the people running for President, both Democrats and Republicans, have created as many jobs for Americans as Trump has?  

How many politicians have we watched that have promised to fix the federal tax system? How many actually changed the system? None. Trump has promised to not only make it better for all individual Americans, but also to find ways to encourage businesses to remain in the US. He has promised to develop incentives to attract foreign businesses to move to America. His objective is to make America the most attractive place in the world to do business. Sure that is a real challenge but it is possible with a proven leader motivating Congress to perform sensibly again.

He has promised to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. I have read that this would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs. His plan is to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax. He also wants to create incentives to companies that agree to move jobs back to the USA.

Trumps tax plan would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. The facts that I read reveal that his recommended personal income tax plan will be:

  1. Income up to $30,000 will be taxed at 1%.
  2. Income from $30,000 to $100,000 will be taxed at 5%.
  3. Income from $100,000 to $1,000,000 will be taxed at 10%.
  4. Income from $1,000,000 and above will be taxed at 15%.

Trump has gone on record that Obamacare is a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity”. He is convinced it “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He feels certain that allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace will drive prices down. Trump supports tort reform to eliminate the costs of defensive medicine and the outlandish cost of malpractice insurance. Trump is on record that Obamacare must be repealed. Based on his comments about the Canadian healthcare program I believe that Trump will support a single payer healthcare system.

Unlike most conservative writers, a plan that demands that all able bodied Americans pay into the plan is the only common sense solution to all of the problems. This would help everyone and the doctors who are having to find other occupations because of the insurance penalty. If lawyers were required to pay malpractice insurance, it might even the playing field.

Trump wants Congress to enact severe spending reforms. He pin points that it is only common sense to understand that spending more than you receives in revenue is absolute failure. He has gone on record that if America can’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion, no one will be able to save this country.

He has made it clear that we must cut spending. He has promised that he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. His plan is to revive and increase the economy by increasing the taxable revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.

Trump has documented his objection to the only solution the Democrat’s ever have, which is raising taxes. History has proven that every time they raise taxes they destroy the economy. Trump is right in his belief and history proves that when you lower taxes you create an environment to help businesses grow, hire more workers and those new workers will be paying taxes that increase revenue. This is nothing more than “Business Common Sense 101”. C Brewer

“RAMBLINGS”

What follows is a distinctly partisan appeal. Be you a Democrat or Republican, I hope you take 60 seconds to read it.

It is not meant to offend; however, I trust that since it cites this person’s perception of a failed Presidency and Administration, the comments will not be received with acceptence or cordiality by some. You are free to delete it at this point. 

If you are happy or satisfied with the way our country is being run, so be it.  If you are dissatisfied, do something!

It’s incredible, to me, that almost 40% of Americans think our President, his Cabinet and staff Guru’s are doing a good job, despite the lack of economic recovery in the wake of billions of dollars in stimulus money having been misspent on green energy projects, bailing out unions, bailing out big business benefactors and cronies, despite repetitive scandals involving the Justice Department, the IRS, the State and Defense departments and most recently, dubious foreign policy decisions.  

I can only surmise that at least two thirds the country has no clue regarding current geo-political events and the danger to our future security and freedom or are totally committed ideologues to the left and right of center.

Did you remember who President Obama threatened, when he wasn’t getting his way with Congress, on raising the national debt ceiling?

The President threatened to cut off funds to: Military Retirees – Social Security Retirees – Disability and Federal

Retirees. He closed down national cemeteries and war memorials, put barricades around open and free parks from Washington, DC. to Hawaii, in a spate of totally corrupt, mean spirited and premeditated decisions. 

The President has begun to operate by “fiat”, issuing Executive orders, bypassing our elected representatives, when his desires are not accepted nor followed.  He ordered changes to existing laws (Immigration and health care) without authority and the Congress has done nothing to stop him.  He is threatening the constitutionally established and mandated balance between our three branches of government, our representative form of democracy, independence and freedom.

Now let this sink in really well; the President: 

–  did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.

–  did not threaten to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent prison inmates.

–  did not offer to fire some of the thousands of newly hired federal employees at DHS and IRS.

–  did not offer to cut down on his family vacations; over $30 Million already spent. (millions on his golf outings).

–  did not threaten to withhold the pay to Senators and Representatives, or any of their staff.

–  did not threaten to slow the rise in benefits for welfare recipients or to stop issuing free cell phones.  

–  did not threaten to tighten up the eligibility requirements for food stamp recipients.

–  did not threaten to reduce payments of foreign aid to avowed, international adversaries and enemies.

–  did not threaten to cut back on any of the “free stuff” that appeals to his electoral base and political following.   

Why have we allowed one person to reduce the most prosperous and powerful nation in the world to just an average, non-exceptional country, that won’t be able to lead the world to peace and prosperity through benevolent Capitalism?     

His fundamental changes are de-motivating our country. For example, to promote ObamaCare, he has said to America, if you have stayed in a job, just to receive health care benefits; that is no longer going to be necessary.  You can now work less, a max of 30 hours per week, or, quit altogether, stay home with the kids or pursue your artistic desires and the government will subsidize your health insurance through the higher payments of other American’s, who can’t quit or work fewer hours and still provide for their families, their accustomed life style.

His socialist ideology and philosophy is intent on dragging us down to mediocrity. More central government control, less opportunity for individual achievement and success. 

He is determined to make our military weak and less able to protect ourselves and those nations in the cross hairs of world Communism. Remember what has happened in Belarus (2008) and now in the Ukraine.

Do not forget about his tactics when it’s election time 2014. Get out and Vote in the mid-term election.   

Support the people in the House & Senate who are willing to cut taxes, spending and our ridiculous federal deficit.

Let’s make 2014 – the beginning of a turn-around. 

Forget change.  We want our taxes back, we want to take our country back, and, I’ve barely mentioned ObamaCare!

We can do this if we all vote!

Remember, had all registered Republicans voted in 2011, we would be bashing President Romney now!!

The basis for the arguments cited above are pretty much contained in the 4 short paragraphs below:

The Basic Principles of the American Government. 

Although our country and the US Constitution has changed in many aspects, since it was first adopted, its basic principles remain the same now, as in 1789:

The three main branches of government are separate and distinct from one another. The powers given to each are delicately balanced by the powers of the other two. Each branch serves as a check on potential excesses of the others.

The Constitution, together with laws passed according to its provisions, and treaties entered into by the president and approved by the Senate, stands above all other laws, executive acts and regulations.

All persons are equal before the law and are equally entitled to its protection. All states are equal, and none can receive special treatment from the federal government. Within the limits of the Constitution, each state must recognize and respect the laws of the others. State governments, like the federal government, must be democratic in form, with final authority resting with the people.

The people have the right to change their form of national government by legal means defined in the Constitution itself, through their elected representatives.  The nation is therefore a Republic, with a representative form of democracy.

Hope this is motivational!!
