    I listened closely last night to "the Donald" on a TV interview. He was asked what he would do with China. "Put a 25% tax on their goods if they don't revalue the yuan." What? That is his strategy[xx(][:o)]! And then they call in our debt! The guy just knows one way...threaten and bluster. Might work in his world of wheeling and dealing in the real estate market, but in geopolitics it is a non starter. He is not the answer IMHO.

    Whoever is picked, we have to hold our nose and vote for him. Cant be another Ross Perot/Ron Paul deal, we have to get rid of Obammy before he does anymore damage.

    That's kinda what I have been thinking. Only I think he is working for himself. Looking to get something from the Rep. party to get out or stay out.

    Any candidate can say anything they want - like "I will close Gitmo within a year" and "I will make health care affordable for everyone"

    It does not in any way indicate it will happen.

    Candidates promise anything they can dream up to get a vote. [}:)]

    guess we'll know by June.
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    And fiery auto crashes
    Some will die in hot pursuit
    While sifting through my ashes
    Some will fall in love with life
    And drink it from a fountain
    That is pouring like an avalanche
    Coming down the mountain

    Watching the interview on Fox, Trump made some good points. He's right about Iraq. We went in there and took down their dictator. it cost us 1.3 trillion. Why not pay us back with cheap oil? Lets take their oil and stay there till were paid back.
    China, he's wrong about taxing China directly. We should be placing a 25% tax on US companies, that builds products for resale in the US.
    Flat tax, no deductions on toatl US sales. Build it here, no tax.
    He's absolutely correct about Iran...no nukes period.
    If trump decides to run, his best contribution, will not be winning, but having the other guys defend or deny these positions he's taken.
    All we as Americans have done, is elect the same ol blabber mouth politicians, maybe its time we elect a blabber mouth businessman.

    Trump would add some color to the debates, but the last thing we need is another loose cannon as president. The war hawks will love this guy.
    What's next?
