Trump Might Actually Have My Vote!



Trump’s attitude is clownish.  He is a buffoon of egotism.  But when he came out with his Trumponomics I was impressed like I was impressed decades ago when he repaired Wolman skating rink at his own expense when the city was capable of doing nothing.


Trump is a man of action who acts on his promises.  He is not like Obama who puts up promises and accomplishes nothing except deleterious actions like the Affordable Health Care Act and his immigration reforms.


Trump has built many buildings.  Obama has a short-term lease on the White House.


Trump said that he’d reduce business taxes to fifteen per cent and close the carried interest loophole.  He will slash the top rate of individuals to 25 per cent. He will charge no income tax to individuals who are making $25,000 or less and couples earning less than $50,000. He posits that these tax deductions will end up in economic growth.


Maybe, maybe not but at least Trump is putting up a plan and taking a chance on being attacked by competitors.


Trump may be a clod but he’s got some good ideas and the courage to implement them.  We must ignore his silliness because his real ideas are sound.


 It is looking more and more like he has my vote.
