    I may just vote for him. He is sounding more main stream by the day.
    Finally, we have a candidate all Americans can be behind.
    He can united us like no one else can...
    He is Donald Trump without the baggage and the tweets...

    He is rich, successful, a bisiness background with no politicalexperience.
    He is an outsider of DC and canmot be bought...
    He is not a socialist.

    I am in.

        Schultz has an appealing story...
        https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Howard_Schultz

        He is like the guy who started McDonalds...

        I see similarities between him and other successful CEO...
        People like Adolph Lewisohn, and Ray Croc...

        The more I learn about him, the more I like him.

    No. No more egotistical billionaires with no political experience.

    No.

      I am shocked!!!
      Not really. From watching the View and other liberal channels, it seems they loved Howard until he decided to run as indemplendent, then they hate him and wants to hurt him financially.
      Stop and think...

        Billionaires buying their way to the presidency.

        Stop and think.

          No, billionaire, wanting to save our country and give back...
          He recognized the path we are on, especially with the debt, is unsustainable.
          I agree with him 100% on this one fact.
          If he can reduce the deficits, I am all in.

          By the way, I rather have howard using his own billions to buy an election than have shadow people buying politicians like Nancy and Chuck and Mitch and Paul...and do their bidding.

            So, you would like to see the Citizens United decision overturned?

              No, one has nothing to do with the other...
              I just want our nation to stand behind someone who is putting Americans first. Someone who is not beholding to the “power that be” who has been screwing up our country for a long time.
              From open borders, to one world order, to the corrupt UN and the global warming scare...
              Meanwhile, they pay off politicians, get tax breaks for themselves and their corporations and fly around in private jets...and tell us to get rid of our SUVs...
              We all know some of these people, don’t we?

                You don't think the payoffs start with campaign contributions?

                  Of course, everything is about money...
                  I thought that is obvious...
                  You heard of the following...
                  Money rules.
                  Those with money, makes the rules.

                    Right, so why are you not in favor of overturning Citizens United?

                  Perhaps I don't understand (not unusual smile ), but it doesn't seem like this has anything to do with campaign contributions.

                  "The case <Citizens United> did not affect contributions to a candidate’s actual campaign. It is still illegal for companies and labor unions to give money directly to candidates for federal office."

                    Well, technically, yes.  However....

                    "n a 5-4 decision which was announced on January 21, the Court ruled that the federal government may not ban independent political spending by corporations in candidate elections, although it remains illegal for corporations to contribute directly to federal campaigns from their corporate treasuries."

                    So, an individual or corporation can spend unlimited money to promote a candidate, they just can't give it directly to the candidate.  Pretty much the same effect, it seems to me.

    But you're so happy with Trump. Not so sure anymore? lol

      Yes, I like some of Trump’s policies but in this divided environment, I am happy to have another moderate, successful businessman run our government. I am appeasing your side. You should be over joyed.
      As you see, I am not an ideolog. I am open to compromise as long as they are reasonable. Socialism is not.

        jackclee: You might as well vote for Howard Schultz because republicans, even his base, are DUMPING Bozo Trump like radioactive waste and now that his impeachment and or indictment is forthcoming, he'll probably be where he belongs soon, sucking iron bars: 71% of women DISAPPROVE of Bozo Trump:

        FYI: I guess SOCIALISM is just fine when republicans implement it but cry, whine and blubber when Democrats implement it to help ALL Americans: Your precious republicans and Bozo Trump just passed egregious socialism legislation at its worst, an unconscionable  Corporate Welfare Tax Cut SCAM that gave trillions of our money to the filthy rich, and Billions upon Billions in subsidies to our farmers that Bozo Trump is destroying with his own trade war tariff insanity:
