    The long standing "war on poverty" with billions (maybe trillions) spent and multiple programs, legislation. a politically correct cultural and faux compassionate politicking has not benefited anyone but the legislators and fear mongering race-bating whores. Recent low employment rates for blacks and Hispanics and other minority groups and generally high labor participation rates, elusive for years of flowery rhetoric from polished politicians have seen historic lows. Year of accepting the systematic killing of blacks by abortion and an abortion industry that honors it's patron saint, a supporter of the exact result, the annihilation of a professed substandard race, mills located disproportionately in predominantly poor black communities.

    Whose policies have helped and whose policies have not benefited minorities.

    He's not a polished politician. He is not running scared of the message managers and opposition rhetoric as past conservative legislators have been. Compared to past Ivy Leaguers he sounds understandably crude and out of place. He is not afraid to speak his mind and worry about hurting other people's frail angst ridden, politically correct butt-hurt sensibilities. "My feeling were hurt, therefore you are wrong," despite facts to the contrary. He offends people because the truth is often ugly, corruption should be called out as such without sugary apologies and hollow caveats.

    He doesn't play their game and threatens the cash cow that has made millionaires out of penniless professional politicians. He is a deal maker and people are shocked by the means in which he operates. But, more often than not, he gets a deal that benefits America and the American people. Sometimes his arrogance, rhetoric, flamboyance and hyperbole are negotiating tactics, "The art of the deal".

    Voters are understandably tired of politicians who promise much and deliver little. It remains to see if he has and they prefer this way to the past.
    Excellent post.

    I agree. He has confirmed to never have done anything or to have said anything to suggest he is that sort.

    Missed these posts. X-Man, you’re wrong about just about everything. Own it. You’re stuck in a 19th/early 20th century philosophy which has been a proven failure.

    The rebound after the market dipped (briefly) had more to do with trade policy and consumer confidence than Fed policy. The roof would blow off if the Dems would cut spending (they control the House)

    Ah, more personal attacks. You have no more idea about what my economics philosophy is than you have regarding the influence of Fed policy to move markets. But please, have the last word. I'm done trying to have a conversation with a stone.

    Really? There's no "buying in". He's a chronic and habitual liar. Lies 6 times a DAY. He says Mexicans are murderers and rapists. 83% of blacks say he's a racist, so might have a little work to do there. 19 women say they were sexually assaulted by him. Paid off two ho's, one who he was nailing right after his 3rd wife had a baby. Said he "moved on" Nancy O'Dell and tried to nail her but she wasn't having any of it cuz she was married. "I failed". Scumbag.

    Says he just goes up to women and start kissing them and "I grab them by the Pu$$y". Geez.

    This guy is a Nobel winner in economics. Maybe he knows something about our economy...maybe not.
    But it's an interesting perspective on our current situation if you read it through.

    what he says is mostly on point, as far as saying GDP doesn't reflect the health of the country and local economies, but blaming it on trump is an enormous copout.

    the country still hasn't recovered from the loss of manufacturing jobs overseas. other discussions about the economy are mostly trivial by comparison. trump's appeal to many is that he addressed that with a strong stance on china and his opposition to things like nafta, etc.
