Banks go unregulated and nationalized by the Government. Crime/drug rates increase. Current Government policies encourage illegal immigrantion. Decisions made by the media and those in politics continue to feed the flames of racism. Politicians are more corrupt as ever. America polices the world and owes debt to many nations. Politicians Carr more about life in your bedroom then real issues going on in America. State taxes continue to rise. COL rises. Healthcare is bing destroyed by the ACA. Some children don't eat most of the time or eat one meal a day. Are soliders barely make a living and Veterans care is in need of reform to provide better care. Same with mental health care needs a reform.

Not saying Trump is the answer. Only politician that could and again can't solve it all, but who I think can spur change is Gary Johnson.

Koolaid drinking BSing dimwitted leg-humpers of the CORPORATE HO Clinton and Mohammed Obama the POS RADICAL ISLAMIST, should be deported to the ME along with those two!


Only then/without them..... would the US be on the road to greatness

If you work hard, you will also have a great life. I'm sorry that some of you make poor life decisions, but that is all on you. No, Trump will not help you. Sorry.
Low educated feel differently. They failed in high school, they didn't take education seriously and now are suffering the consequences

Anyone who says my country isn't grear can take a flying leap.

GREAT is The Country WE live in and Love.

The following words are forever agreed with, and seared in my mind:

"Never confuse BLUSTER with BRAVERY."

"Don't You Ever bet against The United States of America!"

"Americans have NEVER let America down."

He is so Goddamn RIGHT!

UUURAAHH!

I agree, America is GREAT! I've asked the government for nothing! I worked my way through college and can retire today, if I wanted to!

Got to love it when you pay all those taxes or do you hire an army of tax attorneys to help you pay little or no taxes. Yea, Hillary will help the rich, we know. psst, I too make a 6 figure income but your arrogance is beyond ... Don't get too cocky op or reality may hit you in the face.

Hard working American especially the middle class deserve better than Hillary. They're trying to make an honest living but keep getting stuck with the bill. They work hard to support their families but now making less. Liberal land didn't help them in the Obama era and Obama 2.0 isn't going to help them either.

So while you smugly tell people that you make a 6 figure income there are those of us who understand that the middle class has been getting screwed and Hlllary is not the answer.

The smug and elitist thread is, well, laughable.

Considering only about 5% of Americans earn six figure income, then it is assumed that 95% of Americans don't work hard and make bad decisions?

Yeah, no wonder most of Americans hate people like you. (and certainly hate the idea of the elitist running their lives...)

I do have to agree with this. If you are a success then there is no reason to blame others. Notice which side of the isle is always pointing the finger at the other party.

To your second point, true again. When people are desperate they'll believe a lot of things they would normally stop and think about. The rich know that no one will save, they learn and do it themselves. The poor believe politicians who imply they will legislate their prosperity. Any politician who promises to legislate prosperity without effort is feeding off desperation and weakness.

I'm not sure what the op's point is and why they are being so nasty, but it's not a good way to pump Hillary.
