Why we shouldn’t vote for the Democratic Party or Republican Party in 2016, but rather the other two preferable candidates, which are 3rd Party-Green and Libertarian.

***A vote for these two parties and they do not win doesn’t mean it is a wasted vote anymore. You have to keep in mind a party has to obtain at least 5% of the popular votes will get Federal funding for campaign in the next Presidential race 4 years later.

I have been fascinated by this Era’s Presidential Candidates. We have predominately two choices, Hillary Clinton the Democratic Nominee and Donald Trump the Republican Nominee.
This fascinates me because I am going to break down what we have found awful of our former presidents of the United States:
Do these two seem familiar?
“The Credit Mobilier Scandal
The Credit Mobilier scandal was the first major corruption scandal in the wake of the Civil War. Starting in 1867, several high-ranking Republican congressmen (all close supporters of soon to be President Ulysses S. Grant), were given and/or purchased at below market prices stock in the Credit Mobilier of America company, which was involved in the funding and construction of the Union Pacific Railroad. The Congressmen then proceeded to grant a number of public subsidies and other gifts to the company to help line their own pockets. Another of the major players was another future President: James A. Garfield.”[ http://www.huntingtontheatre.org/articles/Now-Or-Later/Top-Ten-US-Political-Scandals/]
So the concept is scandal occurs if the government subsidizes a company to gain their own interest (income in this case).
Here is another:
“Iran-Contra is one of the biggest scandals to rock the presidency in modern times. When news that the Reagan administration was not only selling arms to Iran but using the profits to secretly fund the Contra rebels in Nicaragua, whom Congress had forbid the President from giving assistance too, the story caused a firestorm throughout the country. Admiral John M. Poindexter and Lt. Colonel Oliver North became the major targets of the scandal and became embroiled in lengthy trials and originally convicted for their roles although these convictions were later released on appeal, among fourteen other persons charged criminally in the whole affair. The scandal continues to be a black mark upon the Reagan presidency for many.”[ http://www.huntingtontheatre.org/articles/Now-Or-Later/Top-Ten-US-Political-Scandals/
So, conducting military means to go behind Congress’s back is hated and disliked.
The Teapot Dome scandal of the Warren G. Harding administration has long been one of the poster boys of the world of presidential scandals. Harding transferred control of naval oil reserve lands over to the Department of the Interior in 1921 (although it was later reversed by the Supreme Court, who ruled the move illegal). Then Secretary of the Interior Albert B. Fall used his new power for personal gain, giving rights to the Teapot Dome Reserve in Wyoming to the Mammoth Oil company in return for bribes. When the scandal broke in 1924 he was found to have accumulated over $100,000 worth of bribes from the Mammoth Oil Company, among others. Although Harding had already died in office prior to the scandal breaking, it became a hot topic of controversy for years after his death and continues to plague his now infamous legacy.”[ http://www.huntingtontheatre.org/articles/Now-Or-Later/Top-Ten-US-Political-Scandals/]
Bribery, another one that is considered controversial.
“There may be many scandals in the annals of United States presidential history, but none can compare for sheer impact with that of the Watergate scandal under the presidency of Richard M. Nixon. Beginning with a break-in at the Democratic headquarters stationed in the Watergate Hotel in Washington, D.C. by five members of Nixon’s re-election campaign. Although not initially involved Nixon found out about the break-in and did everything he did to cover up the scandal. When he was ultimately found out the news shocked the nation and led to a grand disillusionment with the American political system. It has also led to just about every subsequent presidential scandal, both large and small, gaining the suffix “gate.” (I.E. Whitewatergate, Monicagate, Plamegate, etc.)”[ http://www.huntingtontheatre.org/articles/Now-Or-Later/Top-Ten-US-Political-Scandals/]
This last one The Watergate Scandal is considered severe and was unacceptable to all parties alike.
Nixon’s Presidential Re-Election campaign had done illegal espionage to gain intelligence on the DNC through their headquarters at the Watergate building. Whether or not he did or did not know was not a factor at first but he faced Impeachment when it became obvious that he tried to cover up the scandal and gave the burglars among others monetary means to cover the scandal up.[ http://www.history.com/topics/watergate]
He later resigned before Impeachment and conviction.
The only other president that was Impeached was Hillary Rodham-Clinton’s husband (later Acquitted by the Senate) for perjury about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a 22 year old Whitehouse intern.
Lets also mention looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. We justified invading Afghanistan due to the stronghold and attack by the Terrorist Group Taliban Osama Bin Ladin.
I address the Iraq issue as this becomes pertinent:
“When Bill Clinton was elected to the presidency in 1992, Cheney left government and joined the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank. Though he contemplated running for president in 1996, he instead opted in 1995 to become CEO of Halliburton, which required him to move to Dallas.
In 2000, Texas Governor George W. Bush asked Cheney to head up the search for his vice presidential nominee. Bush eventually asked Cheney himself to serve as his vice president. Cheney then resigned as CEO of Halliburton and focused on the campaign”[ http://www.biography.com/people/dick-cheney-9246063#meeting-rumsfield-and-seat-in-congress]
Now as I stated Politicians are not to favor one company or another especially if they have a stake in a company correct? So, it was vital that Cheney did not hold a corporate seat and a political seat. This is why I address it:
A company was awarded a contract to rebuild and operate oil wells in Iraq as well provide troop support (food and housing).[ http://www.foxnews.com/story/2003/05/30/halliburton-iraq-afghanistan-contracts-at-600-million-and-growing.html]
This company is known as Kellogg Brown Root Inc, which is a Halliburton company. Which is known as KBR and was a engineering and construction company.[ http://www.company-histories.com/Kellogg-Brown-Root-Inc-Company-History.html] What seems pliable is an Oil company such as Halliburton could obtain a contract to repair and develop oil refineries.
Bush addressed with the U.N. that Iraq may have WMD.[ https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4483968/president-bush-addresses-un] We did not invade Iraq until March of 2003. KBR merged with Halliburton in 1998[ https://kbr.com/about/our-company/history] and had no experience with troop support. Halliburton later in 2002 split KBR to its own entity.
“During 2002, the company reported an estimated loss of $984 million, compared to a net profit of $809 million secured in 2001. In response to difficult market conditions, Lesar launched a cost cutting effort and began selling off non-core assets. The company also realigned its businesses into two major groups — Halliburton Energy Services Group and KBR, the engineering and construction group — with hopes of eventually creating two independently run operating subsidiaries.”[ http://www.fundinguniverse.com/company-histories/halliburton-company-history/] I am unsure of the exact month of the split but it seems odd that we would split a former company of Cheney and is nearing bankruptcy and possible destruction due to Asbestos claims being awarded in suits and they split KBR away and next year KBR picks up contracts for a war that was unfounded as there turned out to be no WMD.
To top it off in 2000, Saddam Hussein decided that Iraq would drop the U.S. Dollar in favor of the Euro[ http://content.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,998512,00.html] for the purpose that he considered us an enemy. If you want to know why, we have done many raw dealings with Iraq, but biggest was providing weapons to Iran while in war with Iraq while also providing weapons to Iraq. Iraq started getting weapons in 1980’s from the U.S.
“But in 1982, as the Iran-Iraq war escalated, the Reagan administration removed Iraq from the list of nations that allegedly sponsored terrorism. This permitted Reagan to sell Saddam Hussein weapons. And Iraq began a buying frenzy…”[ http://www.democracynow.org/2004/6/9/remembering_the_dead_reagan_armed_iraq]
U.S. started selling weapons to Iran later to fight Iraq to get hostages released.[ http://www.mia.org.il/archive/861106lat.html]
Nevertheless, these conflicts go unknown. We despise conflicts caused by presidents. A former Halliburton CEO, Cheney and a Vice-President, The then President-George Bush, and the U.S.A. had several illegitimate reason to invade Iraq. The evidence that the President has significant influence to cause war and conflicts due to scandals (including unknown or un-investigated scandals) exists. Lets take a look at the first candidate of the United States Presidency, the Democratic Candidate, Hillary-Rodham Clinton.
Hillary Clinton has been notorious for using a private server to send confidential and believably top-secrete emails from a secured government email database (which baffles me as the government should have the capacity to be able to prevent any of these emails from being sent to an outside server as most companies have utilized this to prevent corporate spying). Here is the available timeline, proving this was not secured and has since been hacked by “Russians” and leaked to Wikileaks. http://www.cnn.com/2016/10/28/politics/hillary-clinton-email-timeline/.
These emails prove that the DNC and Clinton Campaign had plotted against Bernie Sanders. The DNC is to be neutral during campaigns until nomination. As well, to improve Clinton’s chances of winning the Presidential race in 2016 they de-merited Republican Candidates and pushed for support of Donald Trump and other candidates that would likely lose to her.[ http://observer.com/2016/06/guccifer-2-0-leak-reveals-how-dnc-rigged-primaries-for-clinton/] Her chances of wining are higher. Prior to the Super Delegates voting in July 2016, Hillary was already getting announced in the media as winning the Primaries and was the DNC Nominee as of June 6. June 7, 2016 this is a picture (as it may not be available years from now, although the nomination had the public promotion of the Super Delegates. Sanders ran till the DNC Committee.
With this being said, it was possible for Clinton to win the nomination without the media; however, such overwhelming support during the nomination pushes people to believe their support of Sanders was pointless. Later, we learn that the DNC discredited any Super Delegates that supported Sanders.
At that time, if someone did not watch the whole news show, they talk about how many delegates Clinton had, she however did not really have enough. They were adding the Super Delegates that were not yet voted until the Convention. At that time this was the actual breakdown:
That was not enough to allow Clinton to win, especially that day there were this many available delegates up for vote: 694, which if everyone voted for Sanders he would have had 2,216. I am not saying he necessarily would have won. Plus on June 14, DC was dedicating their 46 delegates.
As stated supporters of Sanders at the beginning of the primaries were getting emails and discouraged to support him, so much so one actually had to resign to support Sanders (note the date):

We were very disappointed to hear that you would resign your position with the DNC so you could endorse Bernie Sanders, a man who has never been a Democrat before. When we met over dinner a couple of years ago I was so impressed by your intellect, your passion, and commitment to getting things done on behalf of the American people. For you to endorse a man who has spent almost 40 years in public office with very few accomplishments, doesn’t fall in line with what we previously thought of you. Hillary Clinton will be our party’s nominee and you standing on ceremony to support the sinking Bernie Sanders ship is disrespectful to Hillary Clinton. A woman who has spent the vast majority of her life in public service and working on behalf of women, families, and the underserved.
You have called both myself and Michael Kives before about helping your campaign raise money, we no longer trust your judgement so will not be raising money for your campaign.

Therefore, if one supported Sanders they would be doomed, thus uniting Sander’s supporters to align with Clinton, and the media announcing how Sander’s had no chance and lost when in fact he still did. To top it off, DNC had espionage for Clinton Campaign inside the Sanders Campaign.[ http://usuncut.com/politics/dnc-leaks-9-emails/] Therefore, similar to Richard Nixon’s Re-election Campaign, Clinton had committed espionage and election rigging with the DNC and media.[ http://anonhq.com/wikileaks-just-revealed-mainstream-media-works-directly-hillary-dnc/]
Now, lets quickly discuss the potential possibilities that Clinton was not going to get nominated and we may have had Sanders. She was being investigated for her own email scandal involving Classified emails in her own personal server. It was decided that Clinton was not going to be charged,[ http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2016/07/05/fbi-recommends-no-charges-to-be-filed-against-clinton.html] This decision was announced on 7/5/16 prior to the Super Delegates voting in 7/25/16. However, this gets more corrupt as you will soon see. Because the DNC and media and Clinton Campaign committed election rigging to deny the people a voice of who they would prefer, and the fact Clinton was investigated and decided not to be charged with a crime, the Super Delegates continued with their protected position (unlike Gabbard) and won’t jump ship to retain their power and deny the people a voice and likely a more honorable candidate.
Getting into the Email Investigation I will discuss bribery to the heads of the FBI that made Clinton sure she would be safe.
Deputy Director McCabe’s wife, Dr. McCabe, ran for Senate in July 2015. That month McCabe started his investigation on Clinton’s emails. After this point a Democrat, Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, donated approximately $500,000 to Dr. McCabe’s campaign. As well, his political-action comittee had donated $467,500 and his influence over the Virginia Democratic Party donated $207,788, which totals $1,175,288.[ http://www.wsj.com/articles/clinton-ally-aids-campaign-of-fbi-officials-wife-1477266114]
This action is not normally an issue except that McAuliffe is close friends with the Clinton’s. He was Co-Chairman of Bill Clinton’s 1996 campaign, headed Hillary’s 2008 campaign, and also headed the DNC between 2000–2005.[ http://www.biography.com/people/terry-mcauliffe-21388747#early-life] So, this is highly suspect and possible reason for not heading another Clinton Campaign.
So, Bribery has been added. This is one of our candidates. I am not for or against Hillary Clinton and am just educating you on this matter of scandals.
Next we discuss the Republican Presidential Nominee, Donald Trump.
First I want to point out that Donald Trump’s political affiliations:
“*In July 1987, Trump first registered from his penthouse in Manhattan’s Trump Tower. He enrolled in the REPUBLICAN PARTY, listing his prior residence as his boyhood home in Jamaica Estates, Queens.
* Twelve years later, in October 1999, Trump dumped the GOP, and enrolled in the INDEPENDENCE PARTY.
* Less than two years later, in August 2001, Trump again changed his party enrollment. This time, he emerged as a member of the DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
* He lasted eight years as a Democrat. In September 2009, Trump changed his affiliation, this time returning to the REPUBLICAN PARTY.
* As of press time, Trump’s latest party switch occurred six weeks ago, on December 21 [, 2012], when he again ditched the GOP. But instead of siding with a particular party, Trump checked off the box indicating “I DO NOT WISH TO ENROLL IN A PARTY.”[ http://www.thesmokinggun.com/buster/donald-trump-voter-history-764812]
After this point he has returned back to the Republican Party, and has ran for president as an independent in the past, but this time his “Advisers to the candidate have said all along that Trump was never seriously interested in launching an independent run, which is an arduous — and costly — process.”[ http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/03/politics/donald-trump-2016-rnc-pledge-meeting/index.html] However, in 2000 he revved up the concept of presidency with the Reform Party.[ http://www.cbsnews.com/news/trump-for-president/] He discussed going to Independent even for this years campaign.[ http://www.cbsnews.com/news/donald-trump-i-might-run-as-a-third-party-candidate-in-2016-election/]
Therefore, Trump has no Loyalties. Lets discuss his business history,
4 Bankruptcies for his Atlantic City Casinos more than any other large corporation.[ http://money.cnn.com/2015/08/31/news/companies/donald-trump-bankruptcy/] This could be a depiction on how Atlantic City is fairing, but if you invest in a business and you make plenty you don’t default on one venture. You sell and pay your debts.
Taxes: He refuses to release them although this is similar to Donald Trump insisting Barack Obama release his birth certification to prove he was a U.S. Native.
Now lets talk about political offices:
None. No more to be said, no executive leadership in a political or socially supportive matter.
Donations/Charity: **There is questionable use in Hillary Clinton’s Charity as well**
The Donald J. Trump Foundation has been notorious for Trump, since 2008, not donating any of his own money and receiving donations from others and then in turn donating that money in his own namesake, thus writing off on tax returns that I previously mentioned won’t be released. He has also been told to have used money to purchase a picture in the amount of $20,000 and had to pay IRS for a donation of $25,000 to a political campaign.[ https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/how-donald-trump-retooled-his-charity-to-spend-other-peoples-money/2016/09/10/da8cce64-75df-11e6-8149-b8d05321db62_story.html] All this is suspect as is Clinton’s donations.
Trump has been socially accepting of Homosexuality[ http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/23/us/politics/donald-trump-gay-rights.html
], although had always believed marriage is between a man and woman.[ http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/presidential-candidate-donald-trump-stance-same-sex-marriage-offends-gay-activist-article-1.122915]
Trump also disrespects women, example is audiotapes of him stating he could do whatever to a woman and they will let you cause your famous (Paraphrased).[ http://www.dailydot.com/layer8/donald-trump-video-billy-bush-days-of-our-lives-audio/]
Trump had “raped” his at one time wife, who uses the term “violated” in his book. Harth in 1997 had been sexually assaulted by Trump, but dropped suit when her then partner had settled a business matter in suit against Trump, she was asked to deny, but refuses. A girl has filed suit in regards to a rape that occurred in 1994 when she was 13.. “a witness says during the ’90s, she was in charge of recruiting adolescent women to entertain guests at Epstein’s parties — and she personally saw the incident occur”[ http://fusion.net/story/328522/donald-trump-accused-rape-sexual-assault/] Now keep in mind he hasn’t been convicted of a crime of sexual assault or rape, however, it is believable in regards to his statements to Bush. As well Trump had tweeted in 2013 that rape in the military is caused when you put men and women together.[ http://fusion.net/story/328522/donald-trump-accused-rape-sexual-assault/] This opinion on women as sexual objects that can just be done as men have the inherited right to grope, assault, and rape women.
His opinions of women in general, “You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.” — from an interview with Esquire, 1991.”[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023] I would not condemn him for saying this as “locker room talk” as he refers to it, men do refer to women as this, yes women we do from time to time, but we don’t really consider you that and only say it to talk up a man. However, a gentleman would not say in on record or write it and may never have said it, honestly I may have in my younger years, but we have all heard it said and face the ridicule of the idiot trying to get you to agree, you know…Piece of..did you hear me man? However he went on record with this in a magazine, which the comment is inappropriate in this reference and not talking about how beautiful your love is. Trump has said a female cannot report without beauty.[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023] Women who feed their children are “disgusting,” come on its a simple biological thing and babies feed on breast milk, its healthier.[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023] Trump believes a woman will not sign a prenuptial agreement because either out of principle or greed, and if they do sign, basically you are still a sucker, she just wants the immediate cash that she will get.[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023] He refers to women who confront or question him in a challenging way ugly, dogs, disgusting.[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023] He also believes that all women flirt with him, even if she doesn’t know it.[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/18-real-things-donald-trump-has-said-about-women_us_55d356a8e4b07addcb442023] This also is something rapists think: “he mistakenly interprets events or information differently than other men would. He believes that some women enjoy being raped, or want to be raped. For this type, rape is part of a conquest, a way of demonstrating masculinity. Most date rapists are Type 2s”[ https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/199211/round-rapists] Excuses rapists use: “She was asking for it,” “I was doing her a favor,” and another one is referring to insult the female as if she was unattractive and he couldn’t have done it, or she is a jilted lover.[ http://www.dailydot.com/via/stupid-things-men-say-accused-rape/] This is similar to Trump saying women when you are a star you can do anything to a woman and they let you. This comment is is similar to the one of the female whom accused Trump of trying to rape her “In yet another excerpt, Trump talks about a married woman he found attractive: “I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there,” Trump says. “And she was married.”[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-groping-misogny-history_us_57f84c00e4b068ecb5dea118]
Next social issue, racism.
Building a wall to keep immigrants out.[ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/trump-groping-misogny-history_us_57f84c00e4b068ecb5dea118] As well, Islam[ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-Zj0tfZY6o] (not radical Muslims or any part of Islam) immigration has to stop. “calling for a ‘total and complete shutdown’ on Muslims entering the US.”[ https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/video/2015/dec/08/donald-trump-calls-for-complete-ban-on-muslims-entering-the-us-video] This also includes tourists.[ http://www.cnn.com/2015/12/07/politics/donald-trump-muslim-ban-immigration/index.html] He calls for the deportation of Illegal immigrants and U.S. Born children will keep the family together, “They have to go.”[ https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-says-he-would-deport-all-undocumented-126838527651.html] This is because they are taking all our jobs and the Republican party wouldn’t get votes from them in 2014.[ http://www.rightwingwatch.org/post/trump-immigrants-a-threat-to-america-theyre-taking-your-jobs/] Therefore, they are not benefiting Trump or Conservatives so they got to go, for political reasons.
Trump also states that Mexico is taking all our jobs.[ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NREzxY7rWA] There are reasons for companies leaving the U.S. and it starts with taxation[ http://blogs.cfr.org/renewing-america/2012/03/06/why-companies-are-leaving-the-united-states-and-how-to-get-them-back/], cheaper labor,[ http://blogs.cfr.org/renewing-america/2012/03/06/why-companies-are-leaving-the-united-states-and-how-to-get-them-back/] less regulations,[ http://blogs.cfr.org/renewing-america/2012/03/06/why-companies-are-leaving-the-united-states-and-how-to-get-them-back/] and corporate greed.[ http://www.forbes.com/sites/timworstall/2013/05/07/why-have-corporate-profits-been-rising-as-a-percentage-of-gdp-globalisation/#3d502b8253f1] I am not saying a company should not increase their profits. However, Mexico is not the problem, these issues are and if you want the company to stay we need to lighten tax burden, make labor cheaper, and less regulation (such as environmental issues). Realistically, this is unlikely to happen. So, these are U.S. based companies I refer to. Trump has not proposed a reasonable plan in his comments. Just hate mongering. Racism is established, at least overtly, in his history. From renting to black people to trying to prevent mosques from being built.[ http://www.vox.com/2016/7/25/12270880/donald-trump-racism-history]
These social issues may not be condemning in itself. But the concept of building a platform that is scared of immigrants and particular group of people. Even to the point of establishing a database[ http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2015/11/watch_trump_says_he_wants_a_database_for_syrian_re.html] and monitoring of their religious events, such as worship.[ http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/22/us/politics/donald-trump-syrian-muslims-surveillance.html] This reminds me of one hate monger who built a platform on religious prejudice and isolated people based on religious belief and that his hate mongering had led him to the capital and war.
Of course I am referencing Aldolf Hitler.
“Crippled America” recently written and published in 2015 by Donald Trump. Trump said he chose an angry photo to show the “unhappiness” he feels.[ http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/a-review-of-crippled-america-by-donald-trump-559554115879] He references that he can boost the American Economy better than the “New Deal.”[ http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/a-review-of-crippled-america-by-donald-trump-559554115879]” He wants to do many things:
Drill, baby, drill. Build the Keystone pipeline. Make it easier to build nuclear power plants. Climate Change is a liberal myth that weakens the American economy. We don’t need any hippie wind farms or solar panels to generate electricity in the USA.
Abolish the Department of Education. Teachers unions suck. Get rid of No Child Left Behind and Common Core. Restore local control in education. The feds shouldn’t make a profit on student loans.
Massive across the board supply-side tax cuts including a 25 percent top rate for the wealthy. This will unleash so much economic growth by wealthy job creators that it will be revenue neutral and won’t lead to large budget deficits. Jack Kemp would be proud.
China, Japan, and Mexico are killing us in trade. This is not because free trade doesn’t work. Rather, it is because we have terrible trade negotiators and everything will be fine once we have a “level playing field.” China steals our intellectual property and should be labeled a currency manipulator. Ultimately, we will take all our complaints over unfair trade practices to the WTO’s independent tribunal system.
Repeal and replace Obamacare with healthcare savings accounts.
Cut wasteful government spending.
Leave Medicare and Social Security alone. In this area, Trump distinguishes himself from the rest of the field.
Nationwide concealed carry. Keep guns away from mentally ill mass shooters. Support the Second Amendment.
Trump funds his own presidential campaign, but otherwise the only reform he proposes to curtail the power of the donor class is greater transparency in campaign contributions.
Invest in rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure.
Increase military spending. Spend whatever is necessary to take care of the vets.
Israel is our greatest friend and ally. The Iran nuclear deal is a disaster. The threat posed by Russia is exaggerated. Bomb ISIS. Basically, Trump wants America to remain the world’s policeman, but wants countries like Germany, Japan, and South Korea to shoulder more of the burden of paying for their own defense. He’s not an isolationist.
Trump is a Christian who will appoint constitutional conservatives like Scalia to the federal bench.
Trump has a mutually profitable relationship with the media and says outrageous things to have fun and generate controversy. That generates ratings which produces lots of free publicity for his campaign. It also helps him distinguish his brand from his rivals.
Support law enforcement, sweep violent criminals off the street, and stand up to black radicals.
Secure the border by building the Great Wall of Trump which will have plenty of big, beautiful doors for legal immigrants. Deport illegal immigrants, but allow the terrific ones to come back. Get rid of birthright citizenship and cut legal immigration.
Trump’s plan to “Make America Great Again” is essentially the standard Republican platform combined with better marketing and a few nods to nativism, isolationism, and protectionism. He stands out mostly on immigration and entitlements, but that is likely an electoral strategy to position himself to win the nomination. I think Trump is being intentionally vague on the details of his policies in order to raise hopes among the maximum number of his potential supporters.”[ http://conservative-headlines.com/2015/11/review-donald-trumps-crippled-america/]
Trump sides with some allies but wants to involve the U.S. in other military conflicts. He use scare tactics in regards to immigration and now it is apparent he has established a poorly written manifesto that leads to hatred of immigrants and, particularly has become apparent, Muslims.
With this being said I will now have a review the political undertone of the famous book of Aldolf Hitler “Mein Kampf”’
“In terms of political theories, Hitler announced his hatred in Mein Kampf toward what he believed to be the twin evils of the world: Communism and Judaism, and he stated that his aim was to eradicate both from the face of the earth. He also announced that Germany needed to obtain new soil called lebensraum which would properly nurture the “historic destiny” of the German people; this goal explains why Hitler invaded Europe, both East and West, before he launched his attack against Russia. Hitler presented himself as the “Übermensch”, frequently rendered as the crude “Superman” (overman is the more appropriate term in its original context), that the basically a-political Friedrich Nietzsche had referred to in his writings, especially in his book, ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’. It is doubtful that Hitler read any Nietzsche beyond a superficial level, as Nietzsche did not refer to his overman in the way in which Hitler would refer to him. For Nietzsche it was a man who could overcome himself (hence overman and not superman) by controlling his impulses and would be able to channel this energy into something creative. The nationalism and anti-semitism that was indeed growing in Nietzsche’s time was something which Nietzsche despised and wrote about continuously: there is probably no other writer from Germany that insulted the Germans more than Nietzsche. Since Hitler blamed the current parliamentary government for much of the ills against which he raged, he announced that he wanted to completely destroy that type of government.”[ http://www.nazism.net/about/adolf_hitler/mein_kampf/]
Hitler also believed that Jewish people were ruining the country.[ http://www2.dsu.nodak.edu/users/dmeier/Holocaust/hitler.html]
“While Mein Kampf was crudely written and filled with embarrassing tangents and ramblings…”[ http://www2.dsu.nodak.edu/users/dmeier/Holocaust/hitler.html] this was also noted in reviews on Trumps book.
Here are key points in Trumps immigration laws:
“DONALD J. TRUMP’S VISION
Prioritize the jobs, wages and security of the American people.
Establish new immigration controls to boost wages and to ensure that open jobs are offered to American workers first.
Protect the economic well-being of the lawful immigrants already living here by curbing uncontrolled foreign worker admissions
Select immigrants based on their likelihood of success in the U.S. and their ability to be financially self-sufficient.
Vet applicants to ensure they support America’s values, institutions and people, and temporarily suspend immigration from regions that export terrorism and where safe vetting cannot presently be ensured.
Enforce the immigration laws of the United States and restore the Constitutional rule of law upon which America’s prosperity and security depend.
Donald J. Trump’s 10 Point Plan to Put America First
1. Begin working on an impenetrable physical wall on the southern border, on day one. Mexico will pay for the wall.
2. End catch-and-release. Under a Trump administration, anyone who illegally crosses the border will be detained until they are removed out of our country.
3. Move criminal aliens out day one, in joint operations with local, state, and federal law enforcement. We will terminate the Obama administration’s deadly, non-enforcement policies that allow thousands of criminal aliens to freely roam our streets.
4. End sanctuary cities.
5. Immediately terminate President Obama’s two illegal executive amnesties. All immigration laws will be enforced — we will triple the number of ICE agents. Anyone who enters the U.S. illegally is subject to deportation. That is what it means to have laws and to have a country.
6. Suspend the issuance of visas to any place where adequate screening cannot occur, until proven and effective vetting mechanisms can be put into place.
7. Ensure that other countries take their people back when we order them deported.
8. Ensure that a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system is fully implemented at all land, air, and sea ports.
9. Turn off the jobs and benefits magnet. Many immigrants come to the U.S. illegally in search of jobs, even though federal law prohibits the employment of illegal immigrants.
10. Reform legal immigration to serve the best interests of America and its workers, keeping immigration levels within historic norms.”[ https://www.donaldjtrump.com/policies/immigration/]
He references illegals are criminials, take American jobs, as “IMMIGRATION REFORM THAT WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN”[ https://assets.donaldjtrump.com/Immigration-Reform-Trump.pdf]
So, this hate mongering on immigration is helping America become great again. Next, Anti-Isalmism or Islamiphobia,
“Mr. Trump stated, “Without looking at the various polling data, it is obvious to anybody the hatred is beyond comprehension. Where this hatred comes from and why we will have to determine. Until we are able to determine and understand this problem and the dangerous threat it poses, our country cannot be the victims of horrendous attacks by people that believe only in Jihad, and have no sense of reason or respect for human life. If I win the election for President, we are going to Make America Great Again”[ https://www.donaldjtrump.com/press-releases/donald-j.-trump-statement-on-preventing-muslim-immigration]
There is that term again, “Make America Great…”. And lets take a quick look at the titles,“Crippled America” and “Mein Kampf,” one means America is in a struggle and the latter means in English “My Struggle.” Both book reference the decrepit state of the country and propose ways to fix. Trump is slowly letting us know what that means to us. Even the picture Aldolf Hitler looks angry you will note no smile, he wants people who read to know he is disappointed.
Similarly, Trumps cover:
Lastly on my correlation, if Trump ascends to power, despite constitution he could wage wars. He says we have to help countries with “the struggle against radical Islam… Stop senseless immigration policies.””[ http://nyti.ms/1NUuxWA] He also says “ Ending the theft of American jobs will give us resources we need to rebuild our military, which has to happen and regain our financial independence and strength. I am the only person running for the presidency who understands this and this is a serious problem.”[ http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/28/us/politics/transcript-trump-foreign-policy.html]
One notable difference between Trump and Hitler is he has not expressed desire to spread America to make it great. Just stop certain governments and religions.
I do fear this is a possible start to encampment of Muslims. He has already referenced FDR’s decision that did lead to encampment of Americans of same ethnicity as our WWII enemies:
“December 7, 2015
Just a few hours before a rally in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina, Donald Trump released a policy proposal online which called for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” The 2015 policy proposed a blanket ban on Muslims based on what Trump called “hatred” of the West innate in Islam.
In the days that followed, Trump pointed to what he considered historical precedent to defend his singling out of the Muslim religion with his ban. He used FDR’s Proclamations 2525, 2526, and 2527, which applied to Japanese, Italian, and German Americans in the aftermath of Pearl Harbor as examples. Those proclamations authorized the U.S. to “detain allegedly potentially dangerous enemy aliens” and led to the internment of many of these individuals.”[ http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/2016-election/his-words-donald-trump-muslim-ban-deportations-n599901]
With this being said Hitler once in power secretly deployed his killing machine.[ http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Holocaust/euphemism.html]
I fear with Trump in power and the odd significant influence he has obtained he is capable of horrible things. Similar to my correlation to him and Hitler.
That being said I am not a proponent for or against Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
Lets talk about our options for the United States Presidency without these two candidates.
Currently you have some options and I suggest one heeds them.
Jill Stein-Green Party- on 47 ballots, so she has enough states to earn presidency, the alternative to Hillary Clinton and popular among Bernie Sander supporters. Read this article and do research: http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2016/06/2016-campaign-election-hillary-clinton-bernie-sanders-green-party-jill-stein-progressives-liberal-213972
Gary Johnson-Libertarian Party-is on all 50 ballots, alternative to Trump, was a former Republican. Again research him and read this article: http://www.inquisitr.com/3380880/libertarian-gary-johnson-5-issues-he-believes-in/
Make an educated choice as I have established reasons why the Republican and Democratic Candidates are not worth our time this election cycle.
