        LOL!  Politico and Fortune?  Anyway, what's Hillary's position on job creation?  That's why you're voting for her?  Right?  Or am I wrong.

              So, trump is going to build more trump buildings if he gets into office?  Big corporations are pulling away from trump.  Why did trump lie about the NFL???  He received a letter from the NFL, a lie.

                From The Fix:  The list of big-name Republicans in Hillary Clinton’s corner just got even longer!  trump screwed up this time.

                 

                A few weeks ago, we assembled a list of some other prominent GOP voices who said they planned to back Hillary Clinton in the general election. This list will be updated as events warrant.

                Richard Armitage, Henry Paulson, Brent Scowcroft. Three big-name former George W. Bush administration officials in the past few weeks have announced that they are supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016 — all because Donald Trump is simply a bridge too far for them.

                  I know what happened, but never could understand why some of the members calling him their "close friend" don't have a clue. The guy created an excellent Archie Bunker type persona and would certainly enjoy this election cycle.

                  Then tell us what happened. You do not know anything about him.

                    Oh come on now bigbear.  Those are (establishment) republicans.  They take the money from the lobbyists, you know, the people who hate Trump.  Trump is for us (working middle-class)  he doesn't need to run for President, he's doing this for America.  The establishment, both republicans and democrats, are for big money in DC.  And as for Warren Buffett, why do you think obama rejected the Keystone pipeline?  Its because Buffett is making millions moving oil with his railroad and the pipeline would end that.  Its all about money, don't you realize that???  I won't convince you and you won't convince me, lets leave it at that.

                      You have to decide what you think is best for the collective country.

                      I listen to what they both have to say, not what someone else says they say.

                      I know we need jobs, not refugees, I know we need to secure our borders, I also know we need to make coming here easier for those with real skills and desires. Not drug dealers and gun runners.

                      I know that if you cripple the middle class with excessive tax, they stop spending, thus business suffers and more people lose jobs and prices go up.

                      I know we have tons of product coming into the country while these countries do not buy our products.

                      I don't claim to have all the answers, but as far as I see , Trump is a business man who is fed up with the crap our Government and that means all political parties, all getting away with.

                      They are forgetting they work for us, I don't want a Government that wants me to work for them.

                      I know we have a current regime trying to chip away at our rights, one that controls much of the media.

                      One that started class wars, race wars and gender wars. They are following the aslinsky, and Cloward and Piven playbooks. All ya got to do is read them.

                      One question I still ponder, why did they make sure so many people flooded our border, put these sick people on buses and ship them all over the country. What kind of person does this to their own country?

                      I Agree! with most of what you said and I'll address what I don't.

                      "You have to decide what you think is best for the collective country. "

                      I don't think it's possible for any of us to know what is best for the collective country. Each state has one or more (California has 53) Congressional districts and the idea is to elect a Representative that will vote what is best for that district. There are two US Senators from each state and again they should at least try to vote in the best interest of their state. The President has no vote and is not even elected by popular vote (Gore v Bush). 

                      "I know we have tons of product coming into the country while these countries do not buy our products. "

                      "Buy American" was everywhere in the early 1980s, but eventually lost out to "shop at Walmart". The answer seems simple, but convincing people to buy American again isn't.

                      ""They are following the aslinsky, and Cloward and Piven playbooks. "

                      Wasn't that the strategy used by the Nixon administration?

                          The members of Congress have over the past 20 years gone from largely being a body of trustees (Vote based on the merits) and delegates (voting the wy their constituents want)  to being a body of almost entirely partisan (voting the way the party wants). If Trump wins and he gets a Republican Congress, he can get virtually anything he wants. if he gets a Democratic Congress, then literally next to nothing will get done.The same would happen in reverse with Hillary. 

                          The Republican base is united while the leadership is divided, The Democratic leadership is united while the base is divided. I don't know which is worse, this election will tell.

                          "The Republican base is united while the leadership is divided"

                          Do you think the evangelicals are even 80% behind Trump?
