    Neither. I doubt we would have less than half the current problems with one of those other politicians he mentioned at the helm.

    Apropos of your clarification (the content with which I agree), technically it should be fewer than half, not less than half.

    If he wins re election his administration and the republicans in Congress WILL MAKE A HARD PUSH to cut Social Security, Medicare, and many other government programs under the guise that we cannot afford it. With the government getting less tax revenue after the tax cut and defense spending at $716 billion, half of which is government contracts, going after programs to help the poor is their solution. Trump is already saying he is going to look at cutting Social Security and Medicare, and after the election he's going to be a lot more vocal about it. We can't let them win.
    The Trump tax cuts targeted the wrong crowd to help the economy. Almost all should have gone to middle class and lower class people if you wanted to stimulate the economy. Drastically cutting corporate tax rates when they were already sitting on 6 trillion in cash at the time did nothing to stimulate. It was a half baked plan all along or very much on point for the current version of the Republican party. They dont care about deficits when their benefactors get huge windfalls.

    So in FLA Rick Scott made it hard for people to get unemployment just as he made it impossible for concerted felons to be able to vote again.

    Anyways now that this crisis is happening everybody that is applying for unemployment is having a hard time getting it.

    When you vote against your best interest this is what happens.

    This is just my opinion but I think the fact so many low income people vote against their own self interest from a financial perspective is these people tend to have irrational confidence in their abilities and position in life even though most are only one paycheck away from financial ruin. They are sold on doing the bidding of corporate elites by falling for the carrot that they too someday could be a titan of industry or hedge fund manager etc. Irrational confidence is more dangerous than smoking.

    Most of these low income people get sold religion, patriotism and nativism if you stick with the gop.

    John Oliver remarked on this on his show Last Week Tonight. Essentially, Americans are extremely optimistic compared to the British. So the reason that many vote against taxing the rich more is because although those taxes donít currently apply to them, they inevitably will when we become rich.

    We need people in this country to be more educated in economics. There are pros and cons to both capitalism and socialism. But both extremes are very bad. So a middle-of-the-road mixed economy is simply the best way to go.

    While certain parts of the economy are reeling, both WalMart and Amazon are booming ó hiring left and right.

    Some might call it the silver lining to the cloud; it just depresses me.
