    I'm voting for Trump because I think he's the best choice for the country. But he sucks. So does biden, and so did the candidates for both parties for as far back as I can remember. Really, why can't we attract better people to the job. I love our country, but if Trump, Biden, Obama, Clinton, Romney, McCain, etc are the best we have, maybe we aren't really that great. Looking at the other people on the ballot, I feel the same way about my state and federal representatives, city council, and so on. Only decent human being I can vote for is the guy running for sheriff.

    "...the State in which the rulers are most reluctant to govern is always the best and most quietly governed, and the State in which they are most eager, the worst."

    Be wary of those eager to rule.

    Why does Trump suck?

    Do you not like a strong economy? Record market? No more wars? Peace deals in ME and with NK?

    Give me one legit reason.

    Probably because private citizens don't have the name recognition to gain the support of big money to overtake the name recognition and the big money backed candidates that we currently have. And/Or people just don't want to sell their souls to get that backing.

    Oh, he's done things I like. But you asked for an example and I gave you one. He can do lots of great things, but if he can't win we can lose the country. And he's shooting himself in the foot by running his mouth all the time. As I said before, I'm voting for him. But still, this is the best we can come up with???

    I don't get it either. The man has done a great job with the entire left and fake news media fighting his every move. The results he has achieved are nothing less than extraordinary.

    TRUMP 2020!!! He had a big mouth 4 years ago also. My 401K has never been this strong. He can keep his big mouth in office for four more.

    If you consider what a candidate goes through when they run, especially a republican at the hands of the leftist media, you shouldn't be surprised.

    That's because most of the Republicans are swamp creatures and don't like the way Trump is taking the country.

    When talking about Trump, the most repetitive things I hear from people I know is why can't he just keep is big mouth shut.....and why can't he stay off twitter.

    What needs to be done is starting Jan. 1st. Finding the next Presidential candidate after Trump.
    He’s done much better then I thought. There is much I don’t care for. But unlike last time where I voted against Hilary. I will be voting for Trump.
    I have always felt bad for Sarah Palin. It was a poor time for her to run fir VP. IF she would have finished as Gov. then gone into Congress.
    She might have made a good President, or VP. But media was very effective,

    I had a very enlightening and maddening conversation with my Lib sister after Mr Trump was elected...she wailed "How could this happen"...I told her [We] all are responsible...[We] are so tired of being systematically lied to and deceived by the pols "we" elected to represent our interests in Washington, that "we" elected someone completely different...in the hopes and prayers Something would change...and Mr Trump Has changed things, with most of the Swamp, obstructing/impeaching/hindering him at every opportunity...but, make no mistake, we ALL are responsible, because we voted for [them]...or we sat home and failed to vote ( which is worse in my book)...So I am as much to blame as anyone here on GT...if the Founders were alive today, I venture to say they would be appalled that we allowed the Swamp to become so big and powerful, while we slept...and they would be right!...we made this bed, but it sure sucks to have to sleep in it!

    I like Trump but his tweets and his acting like a spoiled child like in the debate. I don't like.
