Looking back at the race for the Republicannomination, I shudder at the glimpse we had of Sarah Palin and Donald Trump teaming up together. That was a case of dumb and dumber.Donald Trump was simply an honest George Bush. When discussing the war in Libya he said if he was president he would go in and take their oil. He said back in the day, if you won a war, you got the spoils of war. Someone forgot to tell him that the purpose of the American Revolution and the US Constitution was to provide for the common defense and promote the general welfare. It’s purpose wasn’t to become another England creating colonies all over the world.
Then there’s Donbald Trumps tax evasion. Bragging about how much money he made and how little income tax he paid doesn’t help the economy nor does it help balance the budget. In America today, a janitor can pay more income tax than Donald Trump – and the Republicans regard that not as a source of shame, but of pride. If the rich pay absolutely no income tax whatsoever, then the poor have to make up the difference which perpetuates the injustice of taxation without representation that the founding fathers stood up to oppose.
