    "Both do share one thing, however, when it comes to tax havens: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have companies registered at the same address (also “shared” by 285,000 other companies) in Wilmington, Delaware. In other words, they make use of the “Delaware loophole” that allows for the legal shifting of earnings from elsewhere in the country to the ultimate tax haven state in the US. Neither, as Rupert Neate of The Guardian has written, has been willing to offer any explanation for this. That’s the political beauty of loopholes: Closing one is different from eradicating an entire practice, but suffices as a promise."

    All politicians are liars to some extent. All have two main goals, power and money. Insider trading, creating tax loops, personal protection, and the money train of lobbyists and white collar criminals they coddle.

    For me, I just have to choose who I believe is less of a liar, beware of the one with more red flags, like numerous lawsuits in their past, the felons and associates they circle with, who is less dangerous, who is more acceptable of diversity, who is less of an inciter of hate, who treats others with more respect, and who shows more compassion for people in need.

    I can't see many people in politics who bring up more red flags than Trump or a party that approves of him. I can't think of a less desirable person to pick from, no matter who it is coming from the Democratic Party next election. It's a no brainer for me. If Trump or anyone like him is chosen as the GOP's candidate, I will vote Democrat again.

    I agree, I gave trump a chance and he was Trump First. I'm shocked o see people i thought to be some what principled consevatives, thats not
    trigger the libs tv tuff, I'm talking they have a believe in more local access, accountability from bottom to top rather then centralized control, efficient less waste, fiscal responsibility, letting market guide(to what level varies), its not about agreeing or disagreeing with those premises, its more so watching those same people watch trump trash the budget, fiscal responsibility and debt be out the window. Foreign wars are not good unless saudi pays apparently, sadly thats the case with obama even. And more so decentralized control and checks nad balances for too much conslidated power apparently went out the window as they've gone back ot king george days and ask for the benevolence of trump, its baffling when he lies openly, the reciepts are there, but they still don't care.

    So thats fine, i get voting him out and you can or should continue if that your wish, but that doesnt mean you can't call the current president out. its not this guy is not as bad as trump so i won't call this guy out. Its ok vote for him and keep pressure bc biden also of course...used the same tax loop hole for his 15 million in speeches and appearance fees...doesn't mean bring back trump, it means biden is president, keep rpessure for raising the bar and yes you can still vote for em
