Trump dump

GOP Know Nothing of the day: Jeff Sessions, the US Attorney General, has described marijuana as “only slightly less awful” than heroin.

Robert Reich - huge leaps in military spending plus tax cuts will also mean big cuts to programs like food stamps and Medicaid (at a time when the U.S. has the highest poverty rate among all advanced nations, including more than 1 in 5 American children).

By NOT electing the war-monger, we're saving trillions that would have been squandered in syria, libia, and god knows where else we'd be having a war. Any amount trump spends or doesn't spend is a drop in the bucket compared to this.

Pollyanna Pete,

If 45 isn't planning to go to war, then why is he increasing the military budget by $54 Billion? 45 is only getting started on his own war mongering.

Did you notice Tillerson and his comments on North Korea?

"Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Friday that pre-emptive military action against North Korea is “an option on the table” and that the U.S. policy of “strategic patience” regarding the isolated nation is over." - Daily Beast

We have no idea how far 45 is willing to war monger, only time will tell, but so far he sounds like he is planning to greatly increase warfare. To think 45 will be any less prone to military adventures then HRC, is to view the world through a rose tinted mind.
