Enthusiasm is a wonderful thing. It elected Barack Hussein Obama as our president. Look where we are today. America is heading on the WRONG DIRECTION!
Do you want to make the SAME MISTAKE AGAIN? Isn't it time to vet Trump? Although Trump is and has been the leader in the polls, we haven't taken the time to check-out the REAL Donald Trump and where he stands on the issues.
Here is a brief summary of some of his positions:
ABORTION: In the past he was "Very Pro-choice," not so much any more.
PLANNED PARENTHOOD: Trump feels that abortions shouldn't receive any taxpayer dollars, BUT “I would look at the good aspects of [Planned Parenthood], and I would also look because I’m sure they do some things properly and good for women. I would look at that, and I would look at other aspects also, but we have to take care of women.” That's having it BOTH WAYS!
RELIGIOUS CONTROLS IMPOSED BY GOVERNMENT: Trump supports the Supreme Court decision to legitimize religious discrimination against people who practice their faith. He says "You have to go with it. The decision’s been made, and that is the law of the land."
COLLEGE LOANS: He says "The federal government should not make money on student loans because so many students face crushing debt." This is the PROGRESSIVE POSITION!
UNIONS: Trump indicates that he is NOT a strong supporter of workers rights in states without right-to-work laws, when he says "Collective bargaining doesn’t bother me so much." So he's Pro-Union (Private and Public).
WELFARE REFORM: Trump has downplayed that reform would be necessary. This means that things would remain the same as they are now.
SOCIAL SECURITY: He wants to raise the retirement age to 70.
HEALTHCARE: He supports universal health care funded by HIGHER corporate taxes. He like the Single Payer system found in Canada. He wants a government subsidized system.
GOVERNMENT OVERREACH: Trump supported "some elements of the Obama Administration’s agenda of government overreach" and praised the Obama appointment of the activist former Obama EPA Administrator, Lisa Jackson.
WASHINGTON CRONYISM: He understands how to take advantage of government policy to benefit HIS bottom line. He offers little reason that he would do much to rein in government favoritism. He got rich using this system.
GOVERNMENT INTERVENTION: Trump supports empowering cronyists in the federal government to provide funds to the favored projects of well-connected special interests - just like Obama did with the failed Solyndra. This is personal gain at taxpayer's expense.
IMMIGRATION: He agrees that ILLEGALS should have a "Path" to legalization (CITIZENSHIP or AMNESTY) based on his unexplained "merit system."
These are a few examples on where Trump stands. These are NOT Conservative positions. They are PROGRESSIVE positions! He rarely - if ever - cites protecting the Constitution. That should bother you if you are a Conservative.
