Funny, the wife holds three degrees and between the 2 of us I think we have almost 20 years of

secondary education.  We are both voting trump.  As far as the overall black vote I can't say but

but I see a mismatch of races all cheering him on.  I suppose that you would prefer it if he made

promises to each racial group.

What's good for one will be just as good for others.  I am tired of all the crap about how Trump is

a racist and women hater when all one has to do is take a at his past record.  I myself don't pay

attention to the race of a person, it's when they open their mouth that I make my assessment.

If someone acts like a bimbo then, well if the shoe fits...   Two of my best friends are Mexican

American but I hate illegal immigration with a passion.

    That is what trump did, he opened his mouth and started turning people off!  Yes, I look at the poles and all of them are showing that trump is losing.  That is why trump is NOW going after the black and hispanic votes.

      In away trump is a third party candidate.  Washington Republicans don't like him, but some will vote for him.  Yes, you are right, trump has no idea what the job of president really is.

        I like to think he is reaching out to those who the media has spent hundreds of millions to

        build a wall between, the truth and lies.  Never in history has so much been spent to take

        down a single person.  I doubt the US spent that amount of money taking down Bin laden.

        Those in power will do anything to keep it that way.  Their money is going to fail them this

        time.

          I understand that we need change in Washington, but trump is the wrong person to make that change.  Look at the rainbow of colors in Hillary's audience vs. trump's audience.

            Given the choices, I choose Trump.  He may work out, maybe not.  We can vote them in and we can

            also vote them out.  We gave Obama a chance, two chances to be exact.  Hilda will continue doing

            the same thing.  It's impossible to spend our way out of debt unless the return on investment is 

            greater than the interest.  Trump will have a lot on his plate and it will take a act of God to put us

            back on the right track.

                My vote is with Hillary and I hope she surprises everyone when she gets into office.  I hope the republican party is not the party of no.  And trump needs to lose the hate/ hate crowd, it will destroy everything.

                  Notice how these current presidential candidates are NOT campaigning on "Balancing the Budget", like almost all of the presidential candidates in the past.  The issues in this Presidential Election have shifted to Immigration, Foreign Policy, Domestic Economy & Jobs, Health Care, etc., b/c in reality, it's practically Impossible to "Balance" a Trillion Dollar Deficit, so why speak about it ?? Balancing the Budget is just Political RhetoricIt means Nothing, b/c it will Never Happen.  Perhaps the New President can find some other ways to Boost the Domestic Economy, b/c cutting taxes and entitlement programs will NOT Balance a Trillion Dollar DeficitCutting Foreign Spending, and channeling that money back into the Domestic Economy might help some.

                    Hillary won't change.  The average American is nothing to her.

                    Hate crowd?  Not really.  You know what LBJ (the democrat President) said about black people regarding his "Great Society Programs"?  He said..."I'll have those ni**ers voting democrat for the next 100 years".  Want to see more about the party of hate?

                      Yea all the previous Presidential candidates talked about balancing the budget... So how did that turn out for us?  Talk is cheap.  How many in the past talked about reforming the tax code?  How did that turn out for us?  I'm tired of political talk every election cycle.  Trump is different.  I'm taking a chance on him.

                        How is trump different?  How is he going to do everything that he talks about?  Where is the money going to come from to do everything that he is talking about?

                        This is why some people want trump to release his taxes to see that he is different from the pass candidates.

                          Putting more people to work increases government income and shores up existing federal programs

                          like social security.  Good Jobs allow people to work their way out of debt and improve quality of life.

                          We need a certain amount of debt to keep the pump pumping but personal debt keeps rising while 

                          personal income continues to drop.   I personally reduced my total dept to less than $1,500 and I

                          only keep that so that I have some kind of payment history.   The funny thing is that my credit score

                          dropped into 700s because I don't have any debt.   I have seen an estimate that there are 95 million

                          people out of work in the US.  If these people had jobs all paying around 15% in taxes it would amount

                          to a hefty sum.  How will allowing millions of Mexicans to cross the border taking lower paying jobs

                          while not paying a cent in state and federal taxes help anything.   Balancing the national debt will take

                          care if it's self if Americans are allowed to prosper according to their abilities.   The current federal policies

                          are a burden on the people and if Hilda get elected it's not going to get better.     

                          RL

                          What goes around comes around

                          IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

                          The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

                          When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

                          We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

                          He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
                          He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
                          He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
                          He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
                          He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
                          He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
                          He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
                          He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
                          He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
                          He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
                          He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
                          He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
                          He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
                          For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
                          For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
                          For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
                          For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
                          For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
                          For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
                          For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
                          For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
                          For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
                          He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
                          He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
                          He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
                          He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
                          He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

                          In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

                          Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

                          We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
