Republicans Like Obama’s Ideas Better When They Think They’re Donald Trump’s

I agree that it is hard to get past preconceived notions, but when I read about Trump’s views over taxation, I was pleasantly surprised and impressed, would I vote for him, no, but I am happy that he is putting the idea of increasing tax rates on hedge fund managers into the national conversation, I am equally happy that he is making job outsourcing and its consequences front and center in the national debate over the economy. This study, if you want to call it that, clearly indicates that we absolutely need to educate ourselves on the issues, regardless of party affiliation, we need to understand economic history, cause and effect, we need to remember our social studies, our history and hopefully emerge as informed voters, not knee jerk reactionists because that is not an intelligent way to run a democracy; if we can still call our political system a democracy. It is especially important now, since Citizens United, we are increasingly vulnerable to big money interests buying our politicians and their votes on important issues and since most of us haven’t recovered from the Great Recession, the only thing we have left to influence our political, economic and social way of life is our vote. Therefore we should treat it with respect and do the work necessary in order for our vote to not go to waste.

    I, too, am ambivalent about Trump. I think he is obnoxious, arrogant, and crass. But there are some things that I like about him. He is not afraid to deviate from GOP orthodoxy. He’s his own man. This article is good: http://news.yahoo.com/trump-republican-pledge-breaks-pack-iran-gay-marriage-131002899.html

    1. He is definitely turning the republican campaign on its ear. Good article James thanks for the link. 🙂
