Donald Trump called for an immigration policy to ‘only admit into this country those who share our values’

"The left."

Actually if you look at the Libertarian platforms, especially from 1980 when Chas Koch was a candidate, they do not believe in ANY borders. They want the cheapest labor and literally invite illegals to come . This has been the policy of like minded cake eaters like the Bushes and Portman who pushed through NAFTA and all of these laws. Republicans in Congress voted for them, when the majority of Democrats opposed them.

Meanwhile Trump married two daughters of two sets of Communists, the last who may have been an illegal alien. He has a track record of preferring employees from eastern Europe, some of whom just might be "Turk."

Why did Trump choose Youngstown?

Actually, unemployment is half what it was under GWB.

I think he is hoping for a Trafficant effect,

Republican Donald Trump stretched the truth during his Youngstown speech

Trump's pants are on fire.

His response to immigration reminds me of the Nixon enemies list that included political operatives like Joe Namath. Nixon tried to keep people like John Lennon and Pierre Eliot Trudeau from entering the US.

National Security is important. That's why fifty (50) Republican security experts signed a letter asking the voters to reject Trump.

A comprehensive guide to Donald Trump’s endless business failures

8/2/16....Lost contracts, bankruptcies, defaults, deceptions and indifference to investors—Trump’s business career is a long, long list of such troubles, according to regulatory, corporate and court records, as well as sworn testimony and government investigative reports.

Call it the art of the bad deal, one created by the arrogance and recklessness of a businessman whose main talent is self-promotion.

Republicans near breaking point?

They are the party AGAINST jobs and prosperity.

Republicans should blame themselves.

If you don't like illegal aliens taking American jobs, hire a trial lawyer and sue their Donald J. Trump.

Polls show Strickland trails Portman in Senate race

Paul Ryan and Portman have been crying wolf so long that they believe it. When GWB appointee Michael J. Astrue was Commissioner of Social Security, he "paid down" the disability backlog. There is some question whether the GWB policy was to force default, but Ryan is quite clear:

Ryan embedded the Privatization plan in every one of his proposed budgets and Portman was complicit.

Trump Erie rally draws 8,000 as signs of GOP unity emerge


Republican Party platform – If you are for this, you are a cake eater.

A plague on all Republican Congressional incumbents who have voted to turn Medicare into a voucher system! A pox on all who would cut Social Security benefits!

Polls show Strickland trails Portman in Senate race

The most popular government programs are Social Security and Medicare.

Wall Street has tried to get to the money from the Social Security Trust Funds for a long time. You can trace the notion of "privatization" back to 1978 when GWB ran for Congress. At the time, his uncle Press was the spokesman for Wall Street groups like Goldman Sachs who advocated that privatization, standing alone would save our economy. When he became president, he thought he had a mandate to privatize it. Although he Trust funds are currently solvent, projections show that in 33 years, the funds will be in "default," when there will only be enough to pay 75%.

The Republican Party, led by Speaker Ryan has been crying "wolf' on that issue. Every Republican member of Congress has voted to privatize Medicare and most still want to privatize everything. Look at what they have done to USPS. We lost perhaps a $ trillion in contracts in Iraq, Afghanistan, etc. by using the modern version of the spoils system with companies like Halliburton.

Trump told Speaker Ryan that he supports cutting Social Security but will not admit it publicly because it would hurt his election chances, according to a report in Bloomberg BusinessWeek.

“From a moral standpoint, I believe in it,” Trump said of cutting Social Security. “But you also have to get elected. And there’s no way a Republican is going to beat a Democrat when the Republican is saying, ‘We’re going to cut your Social Security’ and the Democrat is saying, ‘We’re going to keep it and give you more”.

Despite $33M in ads to date, Portman leads Strickland by only 4-5 points

Portman is a cake eater who votes to turn Medicare into a voucher system and would privatize Social Security. . Medicare and Social Security are not free. We pay for them. What the Republicans want to do is screw us out of insurance benefits already earned.
