19 Reasons Why I'm Voting for Trump

In light of recent events, it seems everything is set up for Hillary to win so that's very unfortunate. I'm still voting for Trump and here are my reasons:

1. No more nation building in the Middle East. He openly called the Iraq War a mistake even back when it wasn't cool to do so.


2. He wants lower and middle class tax cuts.


3. He wants to reduce student loan debt. Is against the government charging interest on student loans.


4. Wants to audit the Federal Reserve... And really, who doesn't want that?


5. Doesn't have any special interests groups funding him unlike the other candidates. Has called for all candidates to return the money they're getting back to Super PACs and to remove special interest groups from our election process.


6. Likes universal healthcare, is open to replacing America's broken system with something similar to Canada but better...

7. Moderate on social issues (e.g. affirmative action, women's health, gay rights).

8. Focus on broad-based American nationalism instead of narrow and divisive race and gender identity politics.

19 Reasons Why I'm Voting for Trump

9. Acknowledgement that political correctness is obnoxious.

10. Desire to put America first in trade deals instead of pure Wall Street globalism that exploits third world workers abroad and destroys domestic jobs.


11. Realist based foreign policy. (e.g. deal with Putin if it is in our national interest to do so, even if he isn't perceived as a nice guy).


12. National pride. The man loves his country and thinks it is the best. Every country should have a leader like that.


13. Diversity: he employed women in leadership roles before it was popular to do that. And he did it in the construction industry of all places.


14. He has absolutely nothing against legal immigration, he's encouraged it many times. His grandparents are immigrants, his wife is an immigrant, several of his closest business partners in New York are immigrants. He is against uncontrolled, illegal immigration.


15. Unlike other candidates, his economic plan actually makes sense. It would result in "an 11 percent higher GDP, a 29 percent larger capital stock, 6.5 percent higher wages, and 5.3 million more full-time equivalent jobs".

16. Not only is he very knowledgeable in economics and investment, but the tax structure he offers up back in 91' seems relevant even today to help alleviate some of the complaints we have about 1%'ers and wall street.


17. He's genuinely against TPP.


18. Acknowledges the danger of allowing mass refugees from places governed by fundamentalist terrorist groups, even if such acknowledgment is not politically correct.

19. Trump's idea is about middle class welfare is more libertarian, somewhat. He's more about free enterprise providing for your needs than the government...

Healthcare is provided by, as I recall and don't quote me on this, a system where insurance programs work across state lines. This is intended to boost competition and bring down prices. His plan for greatness is less personal burden from tax... Trump's tax plan is significantly even lower than what Bernie had and is intended to allow the middle class to keep more of what they earn... This is also intended to boost business opportunities so there are more jobs available...

      The thing is that Hillary may be your typical politician who will do what ever she has to to get elected (in some cases do what the populace wants over what she wants) and will push the facts that support her but Trump lives in his own reality, suffers from advanced Cognitive Dissonance, and has proven to be a blatantly greedy Narcisist. This isn't Turd Sandwhich vs. Giant Douche, this is Grade C produce vs radioactive sewage

    I'm in the #StraightOuttaOptions camp. Here are reasons I find it hard to support him:

    His support of "Stop & Frisk" is unconstitutional

    He's flip flopped during his own campaign on several issues. He also has denied saying things that are recorded that he said. He also has trouble keeping key players in our foreign policy straight and this has been well documented.

    His demagoguery is a problem.

    As much as I don't want the energy industry to fail, the environmental impact of coal is very real. Plus, coal companies speculated in Chinese markets instead of investing in alternatives, lost big, and are pushing the blame wholly on government regulation.

    Can we trust him? He campaigns using NAFTA as a point, but exploited it for profit. He campaigns against outsourcing, but has goods made in China. He talks about taxes, but doesn't pay them. He retweets neo Nazis and "accidentally" endorsed a white nationalist as a delegate - out of opportunism to help secure that faction's vote. He has a reputation of screwing over contractors working with him and bullying landowners into selling cheaply for his developments. Etc.

If you care about the country and being a good citizen then it's up to you to study the constitution.

    5. Doesn't have any special interests groups funding him unlike the other candidates. Has called for all candidates to return the money they're getting back to Super PACs and to remove special interest groups from our election process.

    That alone is why he has my vote. We are long overdue for campaign finance reform. The US gives foreign aid to countries in Africa, Israel, Turkey, etc., and then some African countries buy weapons from Russia (and Russian funnels $$$ into the U. S. through charities and private foundations that throw $5,000 pops and sprinkles into select candidates' campaigns), ditto for Turkey and Israel (and Israel just got tired of hiding it and is quite blunt about it now).

    China is infamous for this. Our politicians aren't STUPID, they're CORRUPT. The Chinese literally bring private airplane loads of people to "gamble" at particular casinos, who then siphon off the laundered funds into the campaigns of select candidates (e. g., those who will be lax on implementing or enforcing balance trade standards against China diluting the US markets on certain goods).

    Right under "ad" spend on use of campaign funds is "data mining." It's like a level below the NSA. They buy and mine for data on the Internet and see the kind of words and rhetoric people statistically respond to more strongly and positively (or negatively), and then tailor their positive or negative ads accordingly. Votes can literally be "bought" when people are so robotic and predictable by the droves. So, "votes" no longer win elections, "money" does.

    People are left voting based on the little they have to judge the candidates on, which is awfully lacking in actual substance.

    In theory, if there was just one centralized website that candidates running for office were limited to using to get their message across, with identical budgets capped at some dollar amount that allowed more than just two major players in the marketplace of ideas the opportunity to convey the substance of their platform, the right to "vote" would actually be meaningful. As the system currently stands, we have a "hollow" democracy. We just pay "lip service" to our democratic system of government.
  • Luci92
    All I can say is empty promises. You do realise what politicians do best is to make a nice list of all the great things they want to do for their country to get people to vote for them, but when they're elected and it comes down to the crunch, many don't follow through. Do you honestly expect me to believe Donald Trump is any different?
    • john52461

      He's probably not any different but he hasn't proven that yet. Hillary has already proven it since she's been in politics longer than most of us have been alive.

    He wants to lower taxes on the middle class, yet his tax plan would increase taxes on the middle class. He also wants to roll back gay rights and create anti-LGBTQ laws, and also wants prison punishment for wonen who get abortions. Donald Trump has exported more jobs than he has created here (at a net loss for American workers), and he is Wall Street. His current tax plan (updated since 1991) would give those who make over $250,000 a tax cut. Hillary is also against TPP, so that's a mute point.
  • GuysGuy
    Trump is a complete asshat.

    And the US is NOT the centre of the universe you short-sighted pompous asshole. There's bigger responsibilities the leader of a massive and arguably wealthy nation has, than just to itself. So typically American. (Yes, believe it. The rest of the world looks at US citizens with a large degree of disgust for the most part).

    Look past your own f**king noses, because if you dummies end vote this disgustingly unfit sorry excuse for a human being into office, prepare for a serious shit-storm. He has the very real reactive potential to destroy everything... for many more people in the world than just Americans you celf-centred jackass.

    You just spent the last 8 years shitting on the most fit-for-office for-the-people world-respected presidents you've had in decades.

    Clinton is not ideal either, but look at the ridiculous situation your isolated education and segregated political system has gotten you all into. This election and its electoral candidates have made the US a global laughing stock. You have many many reasons to be utterly embarrassed by this ordeal.

      Sorry, but what kind of person would vote to be led by someone who didn't make it clear that their interests were being put first. Being rich doesn't mean we owe anyone anything.

      It's an unfortunate reality that we've had neocons infest both of our political parties since the late 80's. However, Trump is not a neocon.

      Truthfully, I would much rather Paul won in 2012 and this whole mess be avoided. He was the only candidate who really wanted to leave everyone else alone.

    America please stop this. I agree you were one of the first countries with working democracy, but it needs a system change. Time to cut it with your abusive gouverment.
    Politics is not a game, it is not fotball where the winner takes it all and losers go home. It is about what the majority wants without leaving out the minorities.
    You have two really bad candidates and only two parties to choose from. That does not for fill your right to pick and vote as you want, instead it forces you to pick a side.
    How about you all work togheter to change this by not having two parties, but multiple parties that vary on opinions so you can pick the politics that you think represent you. So that America can join as a whole and stop letting yourselves being two sides of a coin.
    Have a countrie where the percentage of voters shows how much power every parti gets, so not half of your countries belifes gets thrown in the ocean because one parti won with a tiny marginal.
    Stop letitng yourselfs being pushed around every four years with candidates that give you promises that are going to be broken with in the next year.
    Stand up and take a stand before your country falls apart in the hands of power hungry and rich people.

    1) there's a video proving this to be false. Also he wants to fight ISIS and that qualifies as a Middle Eastern intervention.

    6) really? Seems to me like it's just one of many subjects he continues to flip flop on and offers no details on.

    7) moderate for Saudi Arabians maybe...

    15) BS: there's no way he can reduce government spending by $1 trillion per year, especially since he wants to increase the military budget.

    16) he is knowledgeable because he used it himself and he's a Wall Street player himself too. He does have super pacs supporting him and has proposed no campaign finance reforms.

    18) is moot: the US doesn't face mass immigration from those places under Clinton either.

    17) so is Clinton.

    14) no different than Clinton

    11) then what would you call Clinton's style? She's been pragmatic AF as secretary of state and is respected by foreign leaders while Trump is seen as a clown or a useful idiot. Trump is not pragmatic when it comes to Israel/Palestinians or China, the biggest economy in the world and more important than has-been Russia.

    10) except all those times he profited from these practices...

    All very good reasons to vote for him over Hillary. If the news media focused more on what he wants to do for this country instead of the occasional crazy stuff he says or does, he could probably run away with the election. I mean its a known fact that Hillary is essentially a criminal, yet she leads because her scandals get shoved to the side while the media shoves all kinds of negative trump stories at us. Its really a shame that something he said, in what he thought was a private setting, 11 years ago is likely going to keep him from winning. If people laid off some of his antics and focused on what he wants to do for this country and how he's gonna do it, its very obvious Trump is the better choice.

    This is naive b. s. Trump is. Look, obviously you don't understand the complexity of these issues. Do some research and don't go for the simplest answer. I'll give you a break because you're 22 and just don't know enough. And did you know Trump's tax plan gives a big cut to households making $60K or more... the MEDIAN income for American households is UNDER $56k... any cut those households will see will be minimal. Maybe a few grand a year? But not enough to really change their lives. Read up on what these candidates actually have planned before you write an article. Believe nothing that either candidate says, look at the fine print.
