Donald Trump is desperate to lose the GOP nomination

Posted in For Free Trade, Uncategorized with tags , , , on April 18, 2016 by cavalier973

I’ve wondered for awhile if Donald Trump’s run for the Republican Presidential nomination was a publicity stunt that turned out to be far more successful than he expected.

Other people are now wondering the same thing.

If he wins the nomination, then he has to go into the General Election in a state of extreme unpreparedness. He has already begun shutting down his election machines in various states (such as Florida, an important swing-state). Why would he do that if he expects to get the nomination? I think he kept saying ever more outrageous things, trying to disqualify himself (politically speaking), but each new extreme statement, he discovered, resonated even more with the Trumpalumpas, because they want someone who will fight against the Politically Correct Forces of Evil, and no one else seems to have the stomach for such a fight.

Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is doing the normal work of electioneering–working the system (according to the rules!), meeting with people, building an organization for the purpose of winning the Presidency. In comparison, Trump seems astonishingly incompetent.

  • To shrink the size and power of the federal government, the CruzFive for Freedom plan eliminates the IRS, the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the Department of Commerce, and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  As President, Ted Cruz will appoint heads of each of those agencies whose sole charge will be to wind them down and determine whether any programs need to be preserved.

I briefly examined Donald Trump’s tax plan in an earlier post. Here is the link to Ted Cruz’s tax plan: https://www.tedcruz.org/tax_plan_summary/

Cruz proposes a 10% flat tax, which retains the Child Tax Credit and Earned Income Tax Credit and the Home Mortgage interest deduction, while eliminating the Death Tax, the foreign profits tax, and the Alternative Minimum Tax.

The corporate tax rate is dropped to a flat 16%.

The Most Oft-repeated Statement in Hell

The most oft-repeated statement in Hell is, I suspect: “How could I have been so stupid?”

Today the Darwinoids celebrate the birth of the silly man who adopted silly ideas and put them out as “science”.

 

More on Guns

I heard snippets of some speech that Pres. Obama was giving, in which he stated something to the effect of: “There are many responsible gun owners who like to go hunting and go to the shooting range, but inner city folk have an entirely different experience when it comes to guns.”

Well, the 2nd Amendment wasn’t put in there for hunters, Mr. President. It was understood that personal possession of firearms was an element of national defense, hence the reference to militias. According to Federal policy, the national militia consists of every able-bodied man between certain ages (I think 18 and 45). Therefore, it is imperative that each able-bodied man possess a firearm.

The best national defense is an armed populace.

Furthermore, it is “the right of the people” to keep and bear arms. This is an inherent right; it is not granted by the Constitution. The Constitution prohibits the Federal Government from infringing on a right that the people already have.
