Because we're being overrun by illegal immigrants and the people running our country are getting rich by deliberately making bad trade deals and selling out to bankers. They're profiting from the downfall of America.

He comes from a back ground in business, isn't a politician, he says he wants to make America great again, isn't afraid to ruffle feathers, and more than likely will choose a cabinet not made up of political favors.

However! He recently has become more political like and if it's a brokered convention he'll probably have to role a few deals that will turn him more into a politician than businessman which I'm not digging.

My alternative is Bernie but his ideas are too soon for America since the U.S. would need a to be in Avery good financial health state to follow through on his ideas.

Cruz ... Creepy and slimy.

Hillary ... Too corrupt.

Biden ... Isn't it interesting that he didn't run??? The fact he didn't run keeps bothering me. I feel sad that the man lost his son but is that enough to stop become a president? I have a feeling that Obama had already rolled and agreement with Hillary and/or Something is really screwed up and Biden doesn't want to walk into the cluster fuck of a situation.

Aren't you concerned about his disregard for the constitution? Increased NSA spying, trying to stop the press from criticizing him, and killing families of terrorists (which is a war crime).

That's the only thing that bothers me about trump. That said I think Bernie is the only one who would stop the spying, or try to. And then you have to deal with his downsides.

War crimes are only for people that lose wars. Since ww2, war attacks the people. Every US drone strike kills on average 100 innocents, whether the target is killed or not. So Trump's proclamation is that he will do what it takes to win, using tactics that we have already been using. I am neutral about it.

I think Biden really didn't want to run honestly. Plus if he did, Shillary would have been mad.

Can't anger her!/s

I want capitalism to run its natural course, and he's the best means to that end

I don't want to start a fight, but this is where you all lose me, and I get confused... Please explain the concept here...

Businesses, like Comcast, benefit from absolute capitalism by being large. But consumers don't like it, and they demand government intervention via the FCC and net neutrality. Then, consumers complain that capitalism is being corrupted.

You can't eat your cake and have it, too... Could you please explain this to me?

The reason comcast even exists is because the government granted it a monopoly. No company run like that would last a minute in a free market. For "proof" just look at how internet prices and speeds change the freer the market is.

Yep, just look at what Hitler was able to do with Germany after it was ravaged by the globalist Weimar Republic. It took only a few months of Nazi policies to create 5 million jobs in Germany and elevate them to the highest standard of living in Europe. That's encouraging because it gives me hope that America can still be restored to glory with the right policies.

Hitler created a boom by rearming Germany. Then he used those arms to antagonize the entire world and destroyed Germany in the process. Empire is an unsustainable economic policy.

You people always forget to mention that the wars Hitler started really fucked Germany. And Hitler didn't give a damn. He made the army destroy Germany's infrastructure while they retreated.

I believe in his stance on immigration. There are many studies that have been done showing that LEGAL immigration is beneficial to our society while ILLEGAL immigration is a detriment, and not a small one.

I believe in his stance on putting a halt on Muslim immigration until we can find a way to fully vet these people that are trying to gain entry to our country. I support this even in the case that no way can be found and they need to be blocked entirely for ever. Islam is a major problem in the world. It isnt a small minority of its adherents it is more than a large enough percentage of them to destroy Western Civilization. I dont buy the argument that it is our fault because we bombed them, otherwise we would have had a long history of suicide bombers from Viet Nam, Cambodia, and Laos by now.

I believe in his stance on Trade Agreements. The US should not be acting as a charity for the world. Our leaders should be negotiating trade agreements with other countries from the stand point of America comes first, not the other way around. We do not have some obligation to prop up other countries through uneven trade agreements at the expense of our own country.

I agree with his stance on America not being the world's security force practically free of charge especially while the rest of the world condemns us for it until they themselves want our help. The developed nations of the world are more than capable of providing for their own defense, and if they would rather that the US fill that role then they should have to pay fairly for it.

All of the other issues are secondary to me. Some of them I agree with Trump on, and others I disagree with him, but ultimately they are secondary issues to me and would not influence my vote.

If you're a computer scientist you're tired of:

1) competing with h1b visa workers 2) having those same workers depress your wages because they work for less

Trump is the only one advocating for reduced immigration so I have a vested financial incentive to vote trump.

For a few reasons:

  1. He's a big state's rights advocate. He wants to turn usurped Federal power back to the states where it belongs. On many issues he's asked about, Trump responds with "I'll let the states deal with it". This is a very good thing.

  2. His stance on illegal immigration - this has been a problem for America for as long as I can remember and no on has ever had the balls to deal with it. It's a huge issue for many Americans, hence why Trump is so popular.

  3. He wants to lower taxes and cut government spending. This one is huge because the government steals so much money from it's citizens and wastes it on bullshit that only benefits a few people, all while wasting half of it in the process.

  4. He is probably one of the best qualified presidents in history. He's ran a large, private enterprise that's been very successful. I believe he truly wants to use his skills to make America better.

  5. He's not bowing to the cult of political correctness. This one is huge because political correctness is part of the muzzle that's used to control America (and the rest of the western world).

  6. The MSM and political establishment hates him, which leads me to believe that he's not part of the same Democrat/Republican dynasty that screws over Americans regardless of who has control over the government.

I could probably think of more reasons, but these are a few that come to mind.

He is probably one of the best qualified presidents in history. He's ran a large, private enterprise that's been very successful. I believe he truly wants to use his skills to make America better.

The previous "most qualified person" was Herbert Hoover. He created a bigger and better private enterprise than Trump ever did, arganized and ran the Belgian Relief during/after the Great War that saved thousands of lives, ran the 1927 Mississippi River flood relief effort that also saved thousands of lives, was the Commerce secretary during a period that saw a great rise in US commercial standings worldwide, often due to his changing the policy of the Department into one of assisting small and medium businesses with expanding overseas, standardization, efficiency, and growth rather than attacking "too big" businesses as it had been for the previous 4 administrations.

Some of the things Hoover did that did NOT work: * Increasing tariffs so US manufacturers could compete easier with overseas * Forced deportation of Mexicans * Issuing foreign policy decrees that did not take into account our allies positions

In general, I think that "highly qualified" in terms of success and direct management of things will make a poor president, because the CEO-type is used to getting what he wants, when he wants, how he wants it. He wants something implemented, it gets implemented. In politics, you don't usually get what you want, you get SOME of what you want.

I think Trump will be a good president either way. I also think he's smart enough to realize that you only get some of what you want. A CEO may get everything he wants within his company, but he doesn't get everything he wants outside of that. Life doesn't work that way and to assume that Trump doesn't know this either would be a mistake.

When did our Presidents become actual politicians? We started off a mirary General and a few upper class land holders.

Businessmen deal with lazy labor issues everyday. Politicians deal with lazy by patting each other on the back.

If the only thing he does is put a thumb in the eye of the media and cripple the Republican party (making way for an actual opposition party instead of one that just pays lip service to it), he'll have been a great success.
