I have been posting over the last week primarily on Crooked Hillary’s corruption, Dem corruption, Clinton crime corruption and the corruption that has been inherent in the Obama Administration especially coming to light in cover-ups trying to protect a Crooked Hillary election in November 2016.
In sum – a load of CORRUPTION!
This Justin Smith submission addresses the substance of what Trump desires to achieve for America compared to the Leftist agenda of Crooked Hillary that will further diminish America.
Brother Can You Spare A Dime

"Once I built a tower to the sun. Brick and rivet and lime ... Now it's done. Brother can You spare a dime?"
Donald Trump is telling America the truth about our economy, and he has offered wise and courageous solutions that will in fact set our economy afire with prosperity for all, despite assertions of the naysayers of the Democratic Progressive Party. He doesn't have all the answers, but he knows enough to understand that policies that create a Democratic base of takers must be ended if all America is going to thrive and prosper once more. He will throw out the policies Hillary and her progressives seek to extend and expand, that have betrayed American workers, who are mucking through the worse economic "recovery" of the past 80 years, and America First will replace globalism as our guiding light.
The Obama administration wants us to believe inflation is at zero, after they removed everything that matters from the inflation index, but one's grocery, electric and healthcare bills, along with college tuition, proves that inflation is raging. Obama's policies have pushed the GDP down to barely above zero, while they have very nearly destroyed all the high-paying skilled jobs for the middle class and college grads. And in the meantime, over 90 million working age Americans are on welfare and foodstamps, and the workforce participation rate is under 63%.
America must exit this economic crash-and-burn trajectory and stop the Federal Reserve's policy of manipulating low interest rates, printing an excess of U.S. dollars backed only by U.S. taxpayers and monetizing our debt. Without controls on government spending and a balanced budget, the Federal Reserve is merely delaying another inevitable economic crash -- the worse yet.
Trump doesn't lie about it, stating plainly that "we have a very false economy." He has noted that the "stock market is bloated", as a result of quantitative easing and centrally planned government financial stimulus.
Hillary, bought and paid for by George Soros, Warren Buffet, and Bill Gates and always eager to redistribute the wealth between failing Wall Street firms, instinctively knows not to discuss the Fed's inflationary actions and interest rates price fixing. She sees the Federal Reserve Bank as the tool that smooths the way for more Big Centralized Government. She also expects the Fed to keep interest rates low so she can continue Obama's rape of the American economy.
Pure uncorrupted laissez-faire capitalism offers the best path for achieving enormous prosperity, and those who advocate laissez-faire capitalism are the only true advocates for liberty, since great economic prosperity has historically always brought forth great liberty for men and women alike. Donald Trump isn't quite a "laissez-faire capitalist", but he gets close enough for government work.
Hillary Clinton is mimicking FDR's 1944 policies and referring to wants and needs as "rights". She would have one believe that one has a "right" to a job, food, clothing, homes, healthcare and a college education, whether you have worked and earned it or not. This is what she now offers to the takers and the socialists of America, with 50% of young Americans now viewing socialism favorably, according to Pew Research.
Who will pay for all of this?
Ayn Rand, who escaped the Bolshevik communists in 1917, noted the following in 1963:
"If some men are entitled by right to the products of the work of others, it means that those others are deprived of rights and condemned to slave labor. ... Any alleged 'right' of one man, which necessitates the violation of the rights of another is not and cannot be a right."
On August 18th, Trump told a Charlotte, NC crowd: "I will not rest until children of every color in this country are fully included in the American Dream. Jobs, safety, opportunity. Fair and equal representation. This is what I promise to African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, and all Americans. ... [Adding] Let our children be Dreamers too," as he co-opted a term used by immigration activists.
Trump plans to remove all job killing regulations and reduce corporate taxes from 35% to 15%, and this will open our economy to new investments and business expansions. These two common sense acts alone will unfetter capital for old businesses and see new businesses form more easily, creating thousands of new jobs.
America can forget about economic growth and new jobs if Hillary is elected. She has spent her entire career voting and advocating for tax increases, and now she wants a massive $1.3 trillion dollar job killing tax increase [See Section: TAXES AND REGULATION]. She wants to hit some of the wealthiest private sector with an 80% tax rate [The Federalist & DonaldTrump.com], and she will tax small businesses at close to 50%, driving many of them to close their doors and lay off employees.
Hillary likes to brag that her energy plan will "put a lot of coal companies and coal miners out of business". She intends to continue Obama's energy restrictions, and according to the Heritage Foundation, these restrictions will eliminate 500,000 manufacturing jobs and reduce our nation's output by $2.5 trillion by 2030, and individual incomes will drop $7000 annually.
The Institute for Energy Research likes Trump's plan to lift restrictions on all sources of American energy, noting that it will have a near immediate effect of adding over 500,000 new jobs annually. His plan increases our GDP by more than $100 billion dollars annually, and it increases federal, state and local tax revenues by $6 trillion dollars over forty years. It also increases annual wages by more than $30 billion dollars over the next seven years. And overall, this one plan increases total economic activity in America by more than $20 trillion dollars over the next four decades.
Hillary's judgement on trade isn't any better. She supported Obama's South Korean trade deal, which was supposed to increase our exports to South Korea by more than $10 billion dollars and make 70,000 American jobs. Instead, this deal has killed 100,000 U.S. jobs, and our exports to South Korea haven't seen any increase; however, their imports to us increased more than $15 billion dollars and more than doubled our trade deficit with them.
Americans should be prepared for Hillary to betray them on the Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty too. She has been for it all along and from the very beginning, until just recently. If the TPP makes it to the Oval Office during a presidency led by Clinton, she will enact it, because her donors will demand it, and she won't cut off her pipe-line to millions of dollars more of ill-gotten gains.
During his campaign rally in West Bend, Wisconsin, Trump told a huge throng of people:
"I am fighting for you. ... It's time to stop making the special interests rich. It's time to make the American people rich. I am going to make America wealthy again. ... On trade, I am going to renegotiate NAFTA, stand up to China, withdraw from the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) and protect every last American job."
Vote for Hillary and the poor will grow poorer and the middle class will become the new poor. Poverty will become a way of life in America.
Vote for Trump and Americans will do more than subsist. More Americans will have significantly greater incomes that allow them to increase their savings, invest, recreation time, luxury items or give money to charities to help any Americans who are still struggling.
Americans have always saved our fellow countrymen who were homeless or impoverished, long before our republic, long before FDR and long before Johnson's Great Society, and we will continue to do so whenever it is necessary. But America will soon be on a road to a thriving economy by any standard, because we are going to build an economy that creates jobs for people who want to work and contribute to society and grow our economic engine, by unbinding the hands of those people in positions to do that very thing, if only we reject the progressive socialist vision of taxation -- rejecting this collectivist tyranny -- and vote for Donald Trump.
