    I'd vote for trump, but only because it would destroy Apple. He wants to force Apple to manufacture iPhones in the US. Ha ha ha!

    But seriously, everything Trump says is whack. You think he is joking and laugh. Then you realize he is not and it's terrifying....

    Carly is great at destroying businesses like HP, Trump is famous for multiple bankruptcies with his companies. Republicans sure know how to grow businesses. "Leadership is what counts, not political commentary. Coming together to roll up ones shirt sleeves to find common goals."
    Well there's only one guy that understands that and he's been working with both sides for decades as he was an independent.
    Bernie Sanders never ran an attack ad and he's climbing the polls quickly.

    Trump had 4 bankruptcies out of over a 100 companies. That actually is a pretty good record. I have clients who have had more than that. Most golf courses have 7 before they turn a profit.

    He must be doing something right. It was pointed out to me that every time he undertakes a project, he finds and hires the best talent, ie baling out the NY ice rink, multiple golf courses, etc.

    Whether Carly destroyed or saved HP is up for debate. The main question is did she learn anything about leadership.

    Show me a successful socialistic democracy. Hmm, Venezuela - or perhaps Denmark where they have the highest tax rates, etc. And also a failing economy. Bernie's heart is right, but methods wrong. Also, look at what he has accomplished in 22 yrs in Congress. Partial author of 2 bills. Can he bring together warring parties? Me thinks not.

    Policy-wise, he's an orangutang.

    But there's just something so satisfying about him and his anti-candidacy. You'd think "I want to bang my daughter" would be the end of most people's careers, but that was his opening salvo.

    Got some real crappy choices on the Republican side. I'd like Cruz because it would be neat to have a Canadian as an American president. First Hollywood, then pop music, and the final pillar, government.

    All joking aside, the US is a joke now. Bernie or Clinton are your only best bets. Embarrassing times for Republicans.

    The thought of Cruz as president genuinely scares me. I mean I was scared of McCain dying and leaving Palin in charge. But that pales in comparison to this. I'd take Jeb Bush over this.

    I am officially a Donald Trump supporter. Can't believe I just typed that.

    I really like Trumps business background and what he has done and I think his ideas of making companies come back to the U.S. Is possible.

    if you are going for Vote Republican then pick the right one. Cruz believes in Constitutional Freedoms for Investment Banks which will abuse any and all Law while forcing this Country into another recession.

    You need to travel more outside the US if you think Democrats are socialists or anything close to being left wing. Go live in France if you really want to know what left wing really means. Democrats are right of centre, and Republicans are extreme right wing. There is no liberal or left wing party in the US. Not even close.

    And in downtown Toronto, his tower has sheets of glass falling from the building on to the street, and antennas and communication towers that dangle from the top over the street. His buildings are made with pride and craftsmanship. lol

    I'm from Canada and I would personally vote for Trump if I could. I believe you need a business mind at the helm of a country. Take who we have as our prime minister, Justin Trudeau AKA Junior. Junior is an ex drama teacher and he is now running a country, things are not looking good up north for the next 4 years. Unfortunately we have to many liberals and unions in Canada running the show. The province I live in is going to be 300 billion dollars in debt this year and liberals have ran the show for 10 years now. Vote for Trump America you have Canadians support )))

    There's an ***** named Stephen Harper I'd be glad to ship down there. He did a bang up job almost destroying us up here, acting like being a prime minister was equal to being the leader of a mean girls clique, thankfully enough of us decided to do something about it (thank whatever fictional character you call a deity here) so he has some time on his hands.

    I don't want him back. If you want to build a wall to keep him there go for it.

    I don't follow the jab about the Soviets. I'd say America is corrupt, but not that corrupt.

    You mean a $52 million dollar Apache helicopter? Or a $2.4 billion dollar submarine? Or a $4.5 billion dollar aircraft carrier? These are just the public figures, this doesn't fully account for the black ops accounting to show the true cost of purchase and maintenance.

    Ever watch Realtime with Bill Mahar where he has this plate of food showing the breakdown of Medicare, Defense Spending, Social Aid, and other social programs? Basically, you can cut percentages from programs less than $100 million and save a few million but take food or shelter away from Americans, or cut a few percent from large programs like defense, and save BILLIONS. As demonstrated by every other country in the world, all that defense spending isn't necessary. If people really want to get out of wars and out of the business of other countries, cut Defense.

    Anyone who has been in the defense sector can attest, there is very, very careless money being spent. It's like when a money manager is prudent with budget and has money saved for emergencies, and at the end of the year, there is money left and because they don't want to lose the money or get a smaller budget the next year, they spend that money on stuff that isn't needed. There are plenty of articles on expensive military gear not needed and refused because they were ordered 'just because'. Billions if not trillions over the years.

    Putting money into higher education is bad? Getting people out of the poor cycle is bad? Not letting people die for financial reasons when advanced medical treatment is available down the road? The rich has tons and tons of ways of helping themselves, so you think that politicians need to put their efforts into helping the rich equally? Are there any headlines about the poor buying elections? No, its from a handful of billionaires, looking after their own interests.

    My former boss who works in California has an autistic step-son. He was telling me how he was libertarian and voted Republican and hates all the social programs and should lower taxes, etc. A few years back, Time magazine had an article about all the social programs available and how people are not aware of all the subsidies that these social programs provide to people rallying against them (ie, mortgage interest tax deductions). He had no less than 24 benefits from various Californian and Federal programs. Even to someone making over $100,000 a year.

    I'm reminded of an interview Craig T Nelson (Coach) had a few years back on Glenn Beck. "I've been on foodstamps and welfare, did anyone help me out? No."

    The simple reason why you want to take care of society as a whole, is because its better when things are better for everyone, not just some. That's a difference between a first world and third world country. I sure as hell hate seeing homeless people on the side of the road begging for change and would love to never see it. Not by having them moved to somewhere where they aren't seen, but by homelessness not existing.

    When I was a kid, our family was a recipient of a wish from the Childen's Wish Foundation for my 5 year old sister with Cancer (down to 19% survival rate). She survived, which I partially believe that the positive experience from that helped her get better. We didn't have much as my dad was out of work for a year while she was in treatment. The next time the donation can went around at school, when change was the typical donation, my mom made sure that we each put in $20. At the time, I thought that was a bit much, until I asked my mom and with a tear in her eye, explained how much it meant to us and how much the next family needs it. The Children's Wish Foundation isn't the government, but it's the same sentiment. Help out the next person when they are at their lowest, so that you can be helped out someday when you're at your lowest. These are your friends, family, and worst case, another American (or Canadian).

    That time in the children's hospital and all that, would have easily been $500,000 to $1,000,000 if in the USA, if not more, and simply would not have been possible had we not lived in Canada with our social medicine. So it really infuriates me when people do not believe in social medicine model as it's literally killing good people who are not rich. I would hate to see a loved one die because there is just no way to make hundreds of thousands of dollars working extra jobs to save that life. Or the guilt of the survivor, putting someone in debt for the rest of their life or putting them in bankruptcy.

    I'm really, really proud to be Canadian.
