Skip to comments.Is Donald Trump going off the liberal deep end?
Posted on 12/16/2015 12:50:35 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife
There has been a big question mark about the sincerity of Donald Trump's views, given that he has spent 99% of his adult life supporting liberal positions, including amnesty for illegal aliens,and saying at one point that Hillary Clinton was a really good secretary of state.
But he was said to be changed when he ran for president earlier this year. He spoke rousingly against illegal aliens and against Muslim immigration.
But all of a sudden he has taken a leftward tack,perhaps figuring, erroneously,that this is the best way to outflank Ted Cruz. Trump has actually criticized Ted Cruz for failing to support ethanol mandates....If Donald Trump can't cut ethanol, how can he cut any form of corporate welfare?...He throws out the old line of getting rid of "waste,fraud,and abuse," but every candidate says that. In fact, Trump never talks about cutting the budget. Our debt is slowly destroying the country,and he has no plan to reduce deficits.
Even more alarmingly, Trump has criticized Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia...
...Trump's attitude seems to be that he likes affirmative action, regardless of the results...Can we really afford to have a president appointing more supreme court justices who support such discrimination?
Racial discrimination against whites and Asians, also known as affirmative action, is just fine with Donald Trump. On Meet the Press..."I lived with it for a long time. And I've had great relationships with lots of people. So I'm fine with it."
Lastly, Trump blasted Ted Cruz for acting like a "maniac" in his fight against the establishment GOP in the U.S. Senate...As Mark Levin noted,he seems to be labeling all of us who supported Cruz's efforts to stop Obamacare and Obama's illegal amnesty and Obama's runaway spending as maniacs as well. Even Rush Limbaugh has said that Trump's tack to the left raises "red flags."......

Good Morning, CW! Stand by for incoming! ;-)
Trump loves his “stimulus.”
A Big Government fellow.
Build roads and bridges and schools.
Blah, blah, blah.
If you saw the roads and bridges of WV and MD, you’d see a point.
Half of the bridges inspire you pray mightily and drive fast to get across as soon as possible.
Drive the speed limit and they beat you to death.
.........TRUMP: "We have spent $4 trillion trying to topple various people. ... I wish we had the $4 trillion ... wish it were spent right here in the United States on schools, hospitals, roads, airports and everything else that are all falling apart."
Fiorina in response: "That's exactly what President Obama has said. I'm amazed to hear that from a Republican presidential candidate."....
Man! The GOP Establishment has you working AWFUL hours! You need to renegotiate your employment contract!
Oh, I get it! Spending for infrastructure is BAD, but trying to establish a Caliphate and topple secular governments in the Middle East is GOOD.
You establishment types crack me up.
That settles it.
I’m voting for iCarly.
Donald Trump's big talk, braggadocio, and boldness have carried him far. But "gravity" - the wearing off of his freshness, the cumulative weight of his excesses, and voters taking a closer look at him before they actually cast a ballot - might well bring Trump down to earth, as Cruz recently suggested in a speech to a group of donors. Even Superman became weak and vulnerable when exposed to kryptonite, and in Trump's case, the equivalent could be exposure to a political environment in which his 91 percent name ID is "trumped" by voters' decision to finally compare him with other lesser-known candidates."

I think that if Trump wasn’t so successful financially he’d be in a mental institution for the unstable of mind, or at least heavily medicated as an outpatient.
Here are the ideological principles that lead me to support Donald Trump.
This election, to me, is a single issue election. Immigration. Iâm not just looking at THIS election, but ALL future elections. We know that the Democrats are importing illegal voters for the purposes of fraud, and itâs getting close to the point where the combination of gimmie voters, fraudulent voters, and other trickery will overwhelm law abiding Americans. After that point, weâre screwed. Tyranny or civil war.
And of all the candidates, R and D, Trump is the only one who has even proposed a plan that will reverse this trend. Even if we take everything that Ted Cruz said about the immigration problems facing us at face valueâand all you have to do is look at his past statements to see that he may very well be compromisedâitâs still not enough.
So here are the possible futures I see.
1: Hillary wins: Weâre screwed.
2: Any candidate other than Cruz or Trump wins: Weâre screwed.
3: Cruz or Trump win and cannot get a handle on this invasion. Weâre screwed.
3: Cruz wins and manages to get his entire agenda implemented, and was telling the truth about everything. We are STILL screwed.
4: Trump wins and was lying through his teeth about everything. Weâre screwed.
5: Trump wins and manages to turn this invasion around with his agenda. Then we have a chance.
Thatâs it. Thatâs the only thing that matters. Every other issue hinges entirely on this one, because unless we restore the rule of law to immigration, we lose on every other issue. Abortion: we lose. Property rights: we lose. Gun control: we lose.
And thatâs why it doesnât matter how liberal, moderate, conservative, or populist Trump is. Because he is the only candidate in the race who is proposing something that will give us a chance to turn the country back around without a civil war.
Yes, I copied and pasted that from an earlier source I wrote it in; curse you, glitchy apostrophes!
And by what miracle do you think that money would have been SPENT on infrastructure? Every single politician who gets that kind of money spends it on a host of other things, with a small amount actually going to a bridge or road.
Almost all of the 900 billion that Obama got went to clean energy schemes which made some of his friends and supporters multi-millionaires, just before all of the companies went bankrupt.
It’s a catapostrophic failure!
The one looking "establishment" - Uniparty-ish - is Trump.
a lot of real Conservatives have said the same thing
“She and others have told me that it’s common for Trump to pay 80 percent of a project, withhold the remainder of what is owed by claiming dissatisfaction with the work”
If that were true then vendors and subcontractors would do one of two things
1. Refuse to bid on his jobs
2. Inflate their estimates by 20%
No large construction company could consistently try to cheat subcontractors out of 20% of the contract and stay in business.
I think Tama Starr just did substandard work
