First he will get rid of Obamacare and replace it with something better. Anything is better than what we have currently. He will make our military stronger and make our enemies fear us. He is a business man who knows how to WIN. We need to start winning again. I'm out of hope and most of my friends only have a little change in their pockets after 8 years of a dismal economy.

Actually, trump has promised to cut military spending. I would agree that almost anything would be better than Obamacare, but Trump's proposal of a two tier health system is one of the few things that would be worse.

I'm not black, but we can bring up the history of women in this country as well.

Yup.

Not too long ago, marital rape wasn't even illegal. It wasn't until forty-something years ago that it was perfectly legal for husbands to abuse their wives. Women are still paid far less than their male counterparts for the same jobs with the same qualifications/level of experience. Rape culture still exists. The playing fields aren't level at all.

You are either young or ignorant. Or both.

My ancestors were slaves. They were beaten, raped, tortured and treated worse than animals for more than three hundred years.

We share that in common. Half of mine are Jewish. They were exterminated. I don't hate Germans for what what the Nazis did. That is the past. Germans are generally good people and I would surmise most white people born it the US are good people too.

My grandparents were segregated. Black people were lynched openly and their murderers weren't punished. They were barred from opportunities for the color of their race.

I am a college graduate. I went to school with every race imaginable. I have opportunities that my grandparents could only dream about and my ancestors couldn't even imagine.

You and I also have that in common. As a white guy I was one of only a handful in my school. I agree I have more opportunities than my ancestors.

I have to work twice as hard to get half as much as my white counterparts. But at least I have the ability to do so. My forefathers? Not so much.

I have to work harder than my counterparts too. It's called competition and only the elite win. It doesn't matter the color of your skin or where you came from, all that matters is your attitude. Quit playing the race victim card.

Quite frankly, your posts make you look rather ignorant and foolish. Did you not take any history classes during your schooling or did you just happen to skip them?

I took many history classes. One of my hobbies is to research The Holocaust. Be careful with the words you spit out. As you prefer not to be judged by your color I prefer you not to judge my education by posts I write.

Really? Trump seems to evade all discussion of actual issues.

I'll have to read up.

Every Republican wants to replace Obamacare with free market healthcare which means high premiums and no coverage for pre-existing conditions.

You are dancing around the issue.

Trump is proposing treating Muslims like Hitler treated Jewish people. Do you support segregating Muslims from the general population? Banning Muslims from entering the U.S. legally?

What no rebuttal? You made a claim, now back it up. You are deflecting now.

After returning from Europe last week, I can see the ill-effects of letting in thousands of migrants without proper vetting. Europeans are upset. Crimes are up, rapes are increased tenfold in many cities within Sweden and Germany. The local media is almost universally regretful of the decision to let in a million majority uneducated young males (you didn't actually think it was mostly families did you? Look up the UN stats) looking for hand-outs. The ill-effects aren't seen in America, but over there its painfully obvious and Merkel & Co are going to lose their heads for it. The happy go lucky welcoming of the migrants is all but gone but news sources such as Huffington Post still love to beat the drum of the downtrodden middle class Syrian family fleeing to a better life.All the Europeans I talked to whether liberal or conservative leaning were calling for immediate closed borders and deportation for those criminally charged, not complaint with seeking employment or not Syrians. Per the UN over 80% of the migrants aren't even Syrian.

But I digress.

No I don't, agree with segregating Muslims or banning religions. I do agree with increased background checks for immigrants coming from countries with terrorist connections. I do not agree with any bans on a group of people nor do I actually see them coming to fruition. One must make a demarcation between actual law/proposals and campaign rhetoric.

Like Hitler? Here we go with hyperbole's again. Drop Hitler from your argument it has no place at all here. Hitler had the Gestapo, Einsatzgruppen, SS and Brown Shirts to systematically identify, harass, gather, experiment and exterminate Jews. Literally it's almost offensive to make a comparison.

Definitely not Trump, but I think Bernie will keel over in office before his 4 years are up. Plus, he's not going to carry a) minorities, b) senior citizens, and I'm not a big fan of Clinton, so :arghh:. Screwed.
