Why Trump Is Not A Sound Choice For President
I like to think I am open minded. In fact I want to hear both sides of the story. Although I can not say Trump is wrong in everything he says, I do disagree with the majority of the words that come out of his mouth. Below are the beliefs and statements of Trump that I do not agree with.
Mocked John McCain.
“He’s not a war hero,” Trump said mockingly. “He’s a war hero because he was captured. I like people that weren’t captured.” Full story…
He Does Not Believe In Climate Change
“The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.” Full story…
He Consults Himself For Foreign Policy Advice
“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain,”
“I’ve said a lot of things … I speak to a lot of people, but my primary consultant is myself, and I have a good instinct for this stuff.” Full story…
Encouraged Russia To Hack His Politcal Opponents Email
“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” Mr Trump said on Wednesday.

Involved in 3500+ Lawsuits
That seems like an awful lot of lawsuits. Full story…
He is accused of not paying contractors.
I get it you could probably find someone to say most anything. I can see this as a tool in your business arsenal. You hirer a contractor, find some item they missed in performing their work, then negotiate for a lower rate.
As a little guy you probably do not have much negotiating power against a seasoned full time attorney.
As a real estate investor and business owner I have always paid my contractors. I may cut the job short mid way thru or I most likely would not hire them again. I could see how it could really wreck a small business. Full story…
He Has Filed For Bankruptcy SIX Times
How does filing for bankruptcy six times make you great a business?
Okay the important thing for Trump is he is still swinging. We all make mistakes, and most likely some of these bankruptcies were not his fault or the economic conditions just changed.
But 6 times does not make you a great business man. You do know those vendors, lenders, contractors, suppliers, were the losers. They got less then full price for the goods and services they provided. Is this really a point to celebrate in your ability to manage a country? Full story…
“Trust Me” and “Believe Me”
Really how can anyone fall for those words that come out of someone’s mouth. It is actions not words I want to see. I want to see a hear your plan for getting it done.
Few Solid Plans On Many of his Positions
No Plan For ISIS
“I would bomb the s— out of ’em. I would just bomb those suckers. That’s right. I’d blow up the pipes. … I’d blow up every single inch. There would be nothing left. And you know what, you’ll get Exxon to come in there and in two months, you ever see these guys, how good they are, the great oil companies? They’ll rebuild that sucker, brand new — it’ll be beautiful.” Full story….
This could also be referred to as carpet bombing. You realize they are mixed withing population centers. And if you “bomb the shit ouf of them you would kill innocent people.”
Oh yeah, we are already working on removing their sources of revenue, like oil.
Discussed His Penis Size During The Debates

Wants To Kill Terrorists Families
“The other thing with the terrorists is you have to take out their families, when you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families. They care about their lives, don’t kid yourself.
