Heck yeah I will!!! You know back in the 50s people were paying 90% in taxes. We built our infrastructure with that money you know the infrastructure that's in such bad shape now. Roads,bridges, schools, etc...Lol people want to vote trump you know he thinks unemployment is at 42% and he just pulled that number out of the air. Trump 2016 ROTFLMFAO, yeah he's got a snowballs chance 

Have a look here http://fortune.com/2015/09/14/donald-trump-unemployment-rate-jobs/

While it may seem ridiculous,  I wouldn't be surprised if it is at that point considering 1/3 of the countries population is unemployed.  Next time don't believe everything you see or hear on TV, or radio. 

My take on the unemployment rate,  I would figure it at about 20% to 30%

        Taxes or not, that's money they would not have had otherwise.

          It really doesn't matter who people " think" should be President, its the electoral College that makes the final decision. Don't ever forget that. Your Guy or Gal can win the Popular vote by millions but if the electoral College thinks your direction is too dangerous for the country- your choice for President falls by the wayside. That is the darn honest truth.

          Chew on this..George W Bush lost the Popular vote to Al Gore in 2000- but won the electoral College 271- 266

          I always remind myself of this when I vote..the electoral college decides.

            With taxes of course.

            But I rather have schools funded by taxes than lotteries. Same with healtcare.

            Sweden imposed negative interest rates so...If you were lucky enough to win a huge lottery jackpot, how much would you pay the bank to hold your money?  Would you transfer that money to another country?

                This made me laugh. Oh so true.  I love how the unemployment data is always oh so accurate when the unemployment percentage was high or when jobs gained weren't as much as economists predicted. But when the unemployment numbers are low, suddenly it's false, unreliable and the true number is the one someone just pulled out of the air. Cracks me up every time I see it.

                  I guess you would find that hypocritical then?

                  Moving your money to various other countries doesn't mean you evade paying taxes.

                  Would you keep all your money in BofA?

                    Yes we have negative interest, no inflation to speak of. House prices going through the roof right now. But that's how it is.

                    So if I would win I would have to figure what to do. Not there yet though...

                    Transfer money is no option, stock market? buying houses? give me advice.

                        Hi Tony, I live in Sweden, with a long tradition of socialism. We have free schools and our lotterys are tax free also.

                        How are the Swedish media reporting the US election? Are they barracking for Bernie?

                        We all get a lot out of lotteries!

                            The only person I want in the WH is the person that abolishes taxes on lottery winnings. I will still play the lottery regardless.

                              Swedish media have transformed a lot in a few year, more easy to read news and less in-depth stories. I would say it's more focus on Trump and his weird campaign and less on the other candidates. In tradiotion most of the press is labelled independant liberal, the old social democratic press have more or less disapeared.
