So, Where DOES #Trump Stand “On The Issues” (That #MegynKelly Didn’t Ask About?)
Many people are Tweeting that ‘Trump supports this, Trump supports that’. But, just where DOES he stand on the real issues that matter, not Megyn Kelly’s phoney ‘war on women’ NON-issue. This will have to determine if your rage is just against Megyn Kelly (because she is just a bad moderator) and if you really want Donald Trump to be your next President. I don’t like Kelly and never have. Regardless of Trump.
So, let’s take a look:
On Gun Control: Donald Trump on Gun Control – On The Issues
In his CPAC speech, Trump sounded many themes popular with Republican conservatives. “I am pro-life,” he said. “I am against gun control.”
And in one of his biggest applause lines, Trump vowed to end the nation’s health care law: “I will fight to end Obamacare and replace it with something that makes sense for people in business and not bankrupt the country.” Trump also pledged not to raise taxes if elected.
Here is where I do not agree with Trump:
It’s often argued that the American murder rate is high because guns are more available here than in other countries. Democrats want to confiscate all guns, which is a dumb idea because only the law-abiding citizens would turn in their guns and the bad guys would be the only ones left armed. The Republicans walk the NRA line and refuse even limited restrictions.
I generally oppose gun control, but I support the ban on assault weapons and I support a slightly longer waiting period to purchase a gun. With today’s Internet technology we should be able to tell within 72-hours if a potential gun owner has a record.
The NRA has been around since 1877, they know all about our laws. Nothing is wrong with the NRA. There should not be one, single restriction on guns. During the Revolutionary war, every home was required to have a cannon. Enough said. Most people are against assault weapons because they are brainwashed by the left to believe that the “AR 15” is a bad ‘gun’. It isn’t. It is a necessity in case the government goes completely rogue. Otherwise, he is OK on guns. But, not top-notch.
Donald Trump on Immigration – I agree with all of Trump’s points on the Illegal issue. He only wants the brightest to come to America.
Donald Trump on Abortion – On The Issues Trump used to be pro-choice. He changed his mind back in 2000. That is a plus.
My 5-part tax plan involves reforming the income tax. The government confiscates way too much of your paycheck. The tax code is also a very complicated system that forces Americans to waste 6.1 billion hours a year trying to figure it out.
What does that tell you? It tells me that it’s time we restore simplicity & sanity to the income tax. Here’s my income tax plan:
- Up to $30,000, you pay 1%
- From $30,000 to $100,000, you pay 5%
- From $100,000 to $1 million, you pay 10%
- On $1 million or above, you pay 15%
It’s clear and fair. Best of all, it can be filled out on the back of a postcard and will save Americans big bucks on accountants and massive amounts of time wasted attempting to decipher the tax code.
Our country is hungry for real tax reform. That’s why we should implement the 1-5-10-15 income tax plan. And we need to enact [the rest of] my 5-part tax policy: kill the death tax; lower the tax on capital gains & dividends; eliminate corporate taxes; and a 20% import tax.
I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately–fiercely, even. We are the greatest country the world has ever known. I make no apologies for this country, my pride in it, or my desire to see us become strong and rich again. After all, wealth funds our freedom. But for too long we’ve been pushed around, used by other countries, and ill-served by politicians in Washington who measure their success by how rapidly they can expand the federal debt, and your tax burden, with their favorite government programs.
You can read his issues right here: CLICK.
For the most part, Trump is a Social Conservative with some moderate leadings. I agree with him about 60% on all of the issues. He is not my personal idea of a right-winger, but I am very right-wing. Ted Cruz comes across as more right-wing & I really like him–with the exception of supplying NAZI’s to Ukraine and siding with Syrian Cannibal Rebels.. What has he done to secure the borders? Besides initiating Kate’s Law last month due to the San Francisco woman being murdered by a Mexican Illegal. Yes, he supports Israel, so does Trump and all the others. We need to worry about America right now: Israel is fine. God is with many Israelis, God does not ‘need’ us. Cruz is not natural-born according to the Birther Report, so, this can be an issue as well: Birther Report. I cannot stand Jeb Bush and most Americans hate him as does the rest of the world. He is 100% FOR amnesty. He is a crack-pot. I will NEVER vote for Jeb Bush. EVER. Bush is just Hillary Clinton as a man. Carson is a nice man, but a minority. Fiorina is a woman. CIC is a man’s job not a woman’s.
Trump is not a politician which is why people like him.
The rest are Politicians.
It’s still early in the game. Too early to tell. I, however, abhor Rubio (open border and a minority) Minorities should never lead a majority, too many conflicts of interest, take Obama for eg.. Rand Paul. I am with Paul on many issues, but at this point in time, he comes across too weak as a person. I may be wrong. I am 100% with his anti war stance, anti NSA, anti IRS. Christie is a Liberal, to the max. NO thank you.
.@SenTedCruz gave a good answer on immigration. Too bad he's not a natural born citizen!
