Donald Trump for President

Donald TrumpA recent post by Jake Porter got me thinking. Ross Perot might be out, but Donald Trump seems like a suitable replacement.

Trump on Iraq and Osama:

“What was the purpose of the whole thing?” Donald Trump asks in an Esquire interview. “Hundreds of young people killed. And what about the people coming back with no arms and no legs?”

“Tell me, how is it possible that we can’t find a guy who’s 6-foot-6 and supposedly needs a dialysis machine?” Trump said. “Can you explain that one to me? We have all our energies focused on one place – where they shouldn’t be focused.”

That same article suggests Trump is a Republican, but his donations to Democrats trumps those to Republicans by a small margin. Personally, I think he would make an excellent Libertarian candidate.

  1. He sure couldn’t handle the gay marriage issue, though: link

    Oh, and sorry for dissing Porter earlier, I was cranky. Still, somebody needs to proofread some of the stuff he puts out…

  2. G3k,

    No problem. I know a lot about history not so much about english. If you want to proofread some of my stuff or know someone that would send me an e-mail. I do use a spell checker for the posts but could use some help with proper English.

  3. More on the case Jake referred to:

    Vera Coking, an elderly widow from Atlantic City, knows firsthand the power of unaccountable government agencies. The Institute for Justice successfully defended Vera against the condemnation of her home by a State agency that sought to take her property and transfer it—at a bargain-basement price—to another private individual: Donald Trump. Trump convinced the State agency to use its “eminent domain” power to take Vera’s home so he could construct a limousine parking lot for his customers—hardly a public purpose. And unfortunately, cases in which government agencies act not as protectors of constitutionally guaranteed rights, but instead as agents for powerful, private interests, have become all too common.

  4. Trump should ALWAYS be reminded of his disregard for property rights, but you gotta admit… to his credit, he’s a capitalist pig, and we haven’t had one of those in the White House in ages.
