Letter: Presidential vote is choice between socialism and capitalism


It’s the issues that count. Yes we can brand Trump as a dirty old man, and we can brand Hillary as the most corrupt individual to ever run for the presidency, but one of them will be President.

So let’s look at the issues, at what’s important.

Hillary will continue growing the socialistic/progressive Obama government. She will raise taxes not only on the rich, but across the board including middle income. She wants open borders and no she was not talking about energy.

She has said she wants to increase immigration of Syrian refuges by 500 percent above Obama’s quota. B

ill Clinton stated in a recent interview that we should bring in 10,000 Syrian refuges to rebuild the city of Detroit. Lucky Detroit.

According to Google, Detroit has an unemployment rate of about 20 percent including those who have given up looking for work. And think about the tens of thousands of refuge children entering our already over-crowded schools.

In contrast, Trump will lower taxes on all businesses – from small to large. Money saved from taxation is capital. We all know it takes capital to start a business or to grow an established business.

A new business needs employees = jobs. A growing business needs more employees = jobs. As these businesses grow, the employees will spend earned dollars in retail, buying homes, vehicles, etc. causing all of these businesses to hire more employees = jobs.

This is called capitalism. A capitalistic government is what made this nation the greatest ever in its first 100 years.

But going back to the late 1800’s, the “insiders” wanted a socialistic/progressive government because socialism has only two classes: the ruling class (insiders/power) and the working class (the rest of us).

Hillary is an insider. Trump is a capitalist. Your vote will be a deciding factor in whether our country will become socialistic or continue on its great course of capitalism.

Great evaluation. Politics caused the death of more men than bullets. Americans are just pawns to extend and expand this corrupt government. Politicians see us as ignorant fools whose only use is to breed and consume. Americans have fought wars and died in redundant wars and accomplished nothing more than to provide a platform for politicians to thrive. That is treason! Where are the indictments?
A......" well regulated militia for the security of a free state '......is the only defense against a despotic government. Until that time nothing will change. There is really only one choice: Trump

Hard to believe the right is still trying to scare people with that word: Socialism. Yet after eight years of the "socialist" Obama the economy is finally recovering after near disaster. Unregulated, unrestrained capitalism led to the financial meltdown. Unregulated capitalism has led to the outsourcing of jobs. Capitalism works well with certain industries but you must have competition, natural resources, and a pool of skilled labor. Unregulated capitalism does not work with certain industries like healthcare. What are you going to pay to live? Answer: you are going to pay everything you have, even money you don't have to have to recover from illness or to survive. Obamacare is not working. Sure I'll give you that. What plan does Trump have? (crickets- well,he did say free healthcare for everyone). Nothing will work without government intervention with the runaway train of a for-profit health system

  1. Partly true. Even though millions more are now covered, Obamacare failed to target the heart of the problem: The for-profit HC system, the only one in the industrialized world. We need a public option. Republicans have no plan whatsoever.
  2. Basically true. A well-intentioned but flawed strategy in an unstable, dangerous regime. But when you are responsible for the entire world, something bad is bound to happen on your watch.
  3. Although Obama continued it, the NSA’s Prism is the child of the Protect America Act under the Bush administration. This along with the Homeland Security, another branch of government waste created by the “fiscally responsible” Republicans. 4., 5., 6. Complete fiction propelled by hate radio, internet lies, and Fox TV. Nevertheless, I do see a problem with everyone videotaping police encounters. Gaining control of your suspect for an arrest is not pretty. Most people know this but many do not. By and large police do a great job.
  4. Appears to be true. Though the Citizens United decision is the real crime.
  5. The opposite appears to be true, although exaggerated by the recent news. There should be consequences for FBI agents who overstep into politics.
  6. Again, fiction propelled by hate radio and the internet
  7. I agree
  8. Still spouting anti-communist bogeyman rhetoric? Geez, go back the 50s.
  9. Haven’t seen it but I believe you. I would simply say that the rise of Trump would tend to green-light violent, racist behavior to a much greater degree.
  10. It doesn’t seem like too much to ask to show ID. Is it that expensive or difficult? Maybe that’s where the problem is.
