    What are the most important issues facing our Great Republic in the 2016 election?

    Stagnate and declining Middle Income wages and salaries.

    Future US Supreme Court Nominations: Both parties should submit a list of potential nominees before the election……

    Detailed plans to eliminate Radical Islamic Terrorists.

    Lack of a detailed and defined US immigration policy, plan or laws to control the Mexican Boarder and immigrant entry into the USA.

    High US Business Taxes: Taking US small, medium and large businesses out of competition with rest of the wold…..

    Out of control US short and long term budgets and debt: Always spending more than the taxes paid by US citizens and Business paid into the US Treasury.

    Bloated and Wasteful US Federal Government, with no controls in place. Always growing never reducing in size as does the private sector when times are hard and budgets need re-adjusted….

    Politicians, both Republican and Democrat, promising “more” and always “under producing” with blame to “others” for the shortfall..

    A continued 30 year decline in the US Public School Systems. Making the US between 14th and 25th in International School Systems depending on the curriculum comparisons. We must do better!

    Too many Federal, State and City Unions.

    Deteriorating US infrastructure.

    Deteriorating US Military strength.

    Crushing EPA Regulations: Restricting growth of small, medium and large business progress.

    The obtuse interference of the US Executive and Justice Systems into racial matters that have not yet been properly investigated and or prosecuted.

    In the USA today, people who work for a living are outnumbered by those who vote for a living!!!

    How should we evaluate which one of the two candidates competing for POTUS (Trump or Clinton) will do the best job of addressing and mitigating the most important issues facing our Great Republic and win the majority vote of the American citizens in the 2016 election??

    All additional inputs are welcome.

    All comments are welcome.

    Please feel free to cast a vote

    Political Correctness, pushed by the Progressive Liberal Democrats like Obama, Clinton and others, is poisoning our Great Republic. An open society should be based on getting people to agree with you, not making them afraid to disagree.

    Political Correctness (the art of not hurting anyones feelings weather they are right or wrong, in the majority or minority, winners or losers, stronger or weaker, more intelligent or less intelligent etc. etc.) has infiltrated every facet of our diminishing American way of life and culture.

    US Domestic and Foreign Policies (especially our on going war with Islamic Terrorists) Our Schools, Churches, Radio Programs, TV News Programs, Military, Politics, Government, Comedy to name a few.

    With Political Correctness, the minority views, beliefs, value systems etc. are steering our Great Republic in directions that the majority of it’s population agree is incorrect and do not want to go.

    The American majority should not allow Political Correctness to smother and distort truth and reality.

    Political correctness threatens a free society by encouraging “group-think” and by attaining conformity through intimidation and force.

    If allowed to continue, Political Correctness will be the long term demise of our Great Republic!!

    An important example where Political Correctness will cause the US to lose: As long as we insist on maintaining the "moral high ground", we will NEVER win the war on terrorism! We're in a conflict which we absolutely INSIST in playing by the rules - against a maniacal group who have NO rules.

    The majority of American citizens are sick and tired of being told how hateful they are if they actually want their son to marry a woman or their daughter to marry a man.

    The majority of American citizens are sick and tired of being told they are haters and bigots if they think students should be admitted to college based upon merit, and that lending standards for home mortgages ought to be sound rather than substandard.

    The majority of American citizens are sick and tired of being told they're greedy if they wish to hold onto more of the money they earned or even inherited.

    The majority of American citizens are also pretty sick and tired of being told not to be Islamaphobic when Radical Islamic Muslim Terrorists commit outrages bombings and mass killings in Israel, San Bernardino, Chattanooga, Paris, India and now Orlando, Florida.

    The majority of law abiding American citizens who revere the 2nd Amendment are sick and tired of being blamed for gun violence by hands of criminals, gang members, and terrorists and told it is the majority of law abiding US citizens that are at fault.

    The majority of American citizens are sick and tired of having our tax dollars spent supporting illegal aliens from Mexico, Central America, The Middle East, China and from other countries that hate us but love our welfare systems, free money, Democracy and our way of life.

    The majority of Americans want our Southern Boarder adequately policed and regulated and only those that qualify be allowed to legally enter our country.

    Whoever loves truth is sick and tired of the falsehoods of Political Correctness.

    Political Correctness Ends Now. Trump in 2016!!!

  • For months now, at every Trump rally that is interrupted with protests and violence the news media outlets, liberal and conservative, bill the protests, interruptions and violence as, Violence Against Trump Supporters.

    I think the better terms to tag these paid and un-paid Thugs with are as follows or any combination of the suggestions listed below:

    Supporters and Thugs of the Democratic Party Presidential Candidates
    Paid Thugs of Supporters of the Democratic Party Presidential Candidates.
    Supporters and paid Thugs of the Mexican Government
    Supporters and paid Thugs of illegal immigration and the Mexican Drug Cartel
    Supporters and paid Thugs for Hillary Clinton
    Supporters and paid Thugs for Bernie Sanders
    Supporters and paid Thugs of all those who do not want Donald Trump to win the POTUS in 2016.

    I think it’s time to call these Thugs out and label them for who they are really supporting and who is supporting them vs who they are against……..

    Hillary Clinton is a despicable individual who since and including her college years has made a mockery out of integrity, honesty, ethics, morality, truthfulness, moral principles, honor, sincerity, loyalty and decency to name a few......

    You can always tell when Hillary Clinton is lying, her lips are moving!!!!

    Finally, it's over for OPEC as the swing producer and in charge of world wide oil prices. US technology and fracking beat Saudi Arabia like a rented mule..... Oil over the next 6 months is headed to and will level out at about $60 to $65 per barrel. Major oil producers and efficient frackers can make a decent profit at those prices.

    Not with standing the wheels falling off in the Middle East and then the price of oil for the interim would be anybody's guess.
