Trump's 'Contract with America' - Does it Matter to you, and why?
Excerpt - “I am asking the American people to rise above the noise and the clutter of our broken politics, and to embrace that great faith and optimism that has always been the central ingredient in the American character. I am asking you to dream big.
I will begin taking the following seven actions to protect American workers:
FIRST, I will announce my intention to renegotiate NAFTA or withdraw from the deal under Article 2205
SECOND, I will announce our withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership
THIRD, I will direct the Secretary of Commerce and U.S. Trade Representative to identify all
Personally, I am for what he wants to do. Whether he will be able to do ALL of it or not is one thing. But he at least has a list of what needs to be done for America. 'She' hasn't put forth anything like that. All of her plans are to better her and carry on with Obama's legacy. I am afraid that the Clinton's want to use the Clinton Foundation and their power to start a world power. Something tells me that is why other countries are donating awesome amounts to the foundation. Just a thought, but a very scary one.
I would say her 'plans' try and explain how she will help people, give them free college, and make changes that cost us nothing in additional taxes. All lies of course, like Obamacare saving families $2,500 a year and allowing us to keep our Doctors
He finally listened to some of Newt Gingrich's advice. For me, it's meaningless, as I'm a free trader. The TPP is vital for the United States and not ratifying it would be nuts. I'm a never Trump guy, so it's the messenger that is the problem. But point by point...
1. Term Limits Amendment - They are called elections. If people don't want to participate, too bad. A Congressperson can't do much in his/her first term. First term Senators a little more but not much. Takes time to earn power and make change.
2. Fed hiring freeze - It is short of shrinking by attrition (without adding the military cuts). Remains to be seen how this is workable.
3. Regulation elimination - It was very vague. I don't think he can name one. I can name a lot that should be eliminated. He can ask me. I deal with them everyday.
4 -6 Lobbying rules - Actually a good proposal. Appeals to the Bernie crowd too.
Good explanation of your position, what do you see as the benefit to Americans of the TPP? Do you think the no tax no tariff status China has is good or bad for our economy? When you say never Trump guy, is Hillary the better option to you?
1. While I'm not thrilled about China's status, we really have no choice at this time. Stringent trade deals put pressure on the Chinese to change (even w/o them as part)
2. HRC is not better option. Can't vote for either. Sad state.
