Thoughts? Concerns?


One theory is the polls are tightening is because when Trump wins, the polls do not want to be wrong.

We need to vote early and drive others the day of vote to vote.

I took it the other way. As in the polls indicate Texas may turn blue.

I did my part today. Voted and took a friend of mine who is unable to drive himself. I'm also pushing friends to vote.

I thought they struck down the voter ID law (serious question). I would be very pleased to learn that you actually do need an ID to vote.

There's several forms of ID accepted.

Agree... and to be fair, this is my first time voting in Texas. I finally feel like my vote will be counted!

Dude, it's not protectionism. It's a THREAT to GM to prevent them from closing any more American factories and outsourcing jobs to Mexico. Please read, "The Art of the Deal," by Trump.

Yes, I agree, reducing taxes will improve the economy. Here is a video of Clinton saying that she wants to RAISE TAXES ON THE MIDDLE CLASS: https://youtu.be/eTnN13AaMbQ?t=40s

He pointed out to his Mexican audience that he does not mean "you" and "you" when saying that "some" (not all) Mexicans that Mexico sends us (not the ones that run across the border of their own accord. The Government of Mexico sends these people to us) are rapists and criminals. He might be a misogynist or it could be just a bit of locker room machismo.

However, Sanders is NOT on the ballot but Trump is.

I dislike Trump. I think he has verbal diarrhoea. However, I will vote for him. Why? For the first time in modern history, we have a candidate who is PRO AMERICAN AND POPULIST. He told GM that he'd raise a 35% tax on GM cars built in Mexico if they shut down any more American factories. NO POLITICIAN REPUBLICAN NOR DEMOCRAT HAS EVER DARED SAY THIS.

A vote for Trump is a vote for America the beautiful. A vote for Hillary is a vote for globalist corporations, biased mass media, corrupt politicians, and foreign influence, wall street and everyone else who has milked the middle class dry. If you have $1000 in your piggy bank, give 1/2 of it to the Trump campaign NOW or America will no longer be America. Globalists have given the Hillary campaign 500 million directly and many more billions indirectly via social engineering movies, other media, and super PACs. I invite you ACT NOW. God bless America.



Who do you think pays the 35% import tax? Do you think the president has the power to establish an import tax targeting certain companies? There are plenty other reasons to vote Trump but those aren't the best because he has little chance getting such an import tax passed.

Protectionism isn't the answer. The answer is reduce corporate taxes and the cost of doing business in the United States so we can compete with other countries. As a business owner, taxes, regulations and government mandates are about to drive me out of business.

Dude, I've read it. It's still protectionism. Lowering the cost of doing business here and letting the free market work would be better.

There is only one candidate who is unconditionally pro 2nd amendment, anti- protectionist and has never bought congressional members only one candidate that has successfully served the people who elected him. People won't vote for him because he doesn't stand a chance. He doesn't stand a chance because people won't vote for other than what the establishment says.

Yeah, but he has other negatives many won't accept. I can't vote for him.

If you like Hillary's plans for the country better than Trump's, and you think that HRH will appoint better SC justices than Trump will, then by all means vote for HRH. But don't vote for her just because you think Trump is offensive and crude.

:iagree:

And don't not vote for that reason, either. More is at stake in this election than just personalities.

I guess that's why they asked me if I minded letting them use my driver's license instead of my LTC.
