The primary results may change things, but we have to remember Trump has a LOT of money and he doesn't have to depend on donors. He also seems to be on the same same song sheet with a considerable segment of the voter base, which makes him different from Romney in the last election. Conservatives and Republicans alike need to be thinking in terms of the possible choice in Nov: Hillary or Trump? Especially after eight years of Barack Hussein Obama.

Really well I think many on here are afraid to say what they want in fear that the COGS wont run their Trucks. Truth of the matter is if your a Big Company and got your Fingers in overseas and Trump wins the Election you can bet a lot of things will change. If Hillary gets in Business as usually that may be good for Big Business but not good for the working class. Think about it. :)

Black is not white, up is not down, except for Republicans:

Want A Better Economy? History Says Vote Democrat!

  • Personal disposable income has grown nearly 6 times more under Democratic presidents
  • Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has grown 7 times more under Democratic presidents
  • Corporate profits have grown over 16% more per year under Democratic presidents (they actually declined under Republicans by an average of 4.53%/year)
  • Average annual compound return on the stock market has been 18 times greater under Democratic presidents (If you invested $100k for 40 years of Republican administrations you had $126k at the end, if you invested $100k for 40 years of Democrat administrations you had $3.9M at the end)
  • Republican presidents added 2.5 times more to the national debt than Democratic presidents
  • The two times the economy steered into the ditch (Great Depression and Great Recession) were during Republican, laissez faire administrations

Some where in China... DEMOCOGS the plane boss the plane.
The Numbers Don’t Lie

Social policies are good, to a certain extent. Yes, taxes to build roads and keep them maintained are needed. Taxes are also needed to pay emergency response units as well as build defenses that protect our interests, and we all must chip in, but let’s not go overboard. Certain expenses should be left to the individual so we can all maintain a necessary and god given freedom. Higher taxes and more spending has never been the right solution for a struggling economy… never.



You know the old saying, “Give a man a fish and he eats for a day, teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.”



If you want to know why people who love their freedom look forward to Republican presidents, look at the times when Democrats had full control over the Senate, House and presidency and you will see a trail of destructive economic policies which the citizens ALWAYS ended up paying for.



The numbers are clear; the economy and American households are better off under a Republican president, especially when he has like-minded adults in the House and Senate to see the virtue of lower taxes and lower inflation. It’s when the Republicans’ conservative principles are upheld that the economy advances and individual freedom improves. That’s why a Republican President is what’s best for America.

There is guilt on both sides. Bush is responsible for a third of our national debt through tax cuts, wars (some which Obama is spending freely on today), and the recession. Obama is still spending like crazy. The fed is doing nothing but printing money to give the illusion we are in good shape economically. Not really when you look behind the curtain. We are as insolvent as you can just about possibly get. That is why we are 19 trillion in debt. We are also commited to 60 trillion in unfunded liabilities. Don't really need to go any deeper than that.

Finally, a voice of reason.

There really is guilt on both sides, but let's not forget that Obama extended the Bush tax cuts in addition to running up the national debt like no other POTUS in history. The Great Recession can not be blamed solely on Bush because the root causes for the sub-prime lending disaster were put in place well before he took office. The next big problem we face is when interest rates finally get back to normal levels after 8 years of being held artificially low. Imagine what the interest payments on our national debt will be if the Prime rate - currently 3.5% - is allowed to rise to the level it was when Obama took office: 6.5%, to say nothing of what might happen if it rises to the levels of the Clinton years, averaging 8 to 9%. For those youngsters that think it can't happen, take a look at the following link documenting the Prime's history. We haven't seen 3.5% since 1958. Of course we don't even want to think about the late '70s and early '80s. It's the economy, stupid!

They are one in the same. Just a matter of how you massage the data to achieve the answers you want.
See how easy it is.
Why America Desperately Needs a Republican President

There's a couple clear fallacies in the reasoning here, like "when taxes are high, jobs are lost, because there's less money for expansion." Jobs aren't created by the funds available, they're created by demand for a product or service, period. Anyone who creates jobs simply because they have money to do it isn't going to be in business for long.
Also the one about reducing desire to work/produce by increasing taxes: beyond a certain point, money isn't the reason to continue working, or why would billionaires continue to show up every day? People have an inherent need to be productive, which is irrelevant to income. If they didn't, charities would never find volunteers, and Mark Zuckerberg would have retired long ago.
I didn't even finish reading it yet, lol.

Let's not forget about research and development of products and services not yet in existence. That takes money for capitol investment here in the US instead of going overseas or being sucked up by the US govt in taxes. Jobs are created when businesses evolve and grow. Otherwise, buggy whips would still be in high demand.
