    What on earth are these tech companies thinking?  Don't they know that Trump's 10 yr old kid is great at the cyber?   :D

    As opposed to the candidate who claims to think you wipe a server with a rag? The one who illegally ran a server out of a bathroom? That was hacked multiple times?

    Trump doesn't have a plan, nor a clue. He's a racist, xenophobic psychopath. The support for Clinton is a no-brainer.

    And what about tax policy? One of Hillary's economic advisors, Joe Stiglitz said "Here we have the largest corporation in capitalization not only in America, but in the world, bigger than GM was at its peak, and claiming that most of its profits originate from about a few hundred people working in Ireland — that’s a fraud ... Our current tax system encourages companies to keep their money abroad, opens up a vast loophole through what is called the transfer-pricing system that allows them not only to keep their money abroad but, effectively, to escape taxation." He seems to say that Apple is transferring US income to Ireland, which has never been shown to be the case, rather EU income has been transferred to Ireland. Are we sure we can trust the Clintons?
    And yet, that's a Clinton advisor, not Clinton herself. 

    Trump himself claimed Apple doesn't pay taxes, and on top of that says he will dictate that Apple moves its manufacturing to the US, which is simply impossible and the ravings of a cartoonish simpleton. 

    So really, who do you trust: a politician seeking to incrementally improve upon the status quo, or a charlatan con man lying and boasting and stroking off racist white supremacists?
    And Hillary says raising taxes on the rich and corporations will pay for all of the free things she wants which is impossible.
    I find the prospect of a Clinton presidency far more terrifying than Trump. I am seriously considering taking early retirement, selling all my stock and refuse to contribute further to the predatory state. The twisted logic of the socialists, progressives and collectivists have irretrievably damaged this country.

    …facts have a bias against your POV
    Nah, my PoV is fact, as there’s no reason to believe anything that isn’t fact. What kind of idiot goes against a fact he knows? A liberal, by definition, but it was a rhetorical question.
    From what the debate showed, Trump either had a case of sniffles from some malady, making him obviously unfit for President, or as some wags have pointed out, may have had debate help from an illegal substance.
    And if you’re (you, personally, not the “third person singular/plural” I often have to explain I’m using; this time it’s YOU) mentally defective enough to actually believe that without any evidence whatsoever or so disengaged from the political arena this time around to not know that HILLARY’S PAID SHILLS are the ones stating such things (particularly in the face of this; apologies that it’s InfoWars, but Google takes down the raw video if it’s posted–lol totally no bias), then you’re not intelligent enough to 1. be allowed to vote 2. continue this discussion. It’s quite simple. You’ve either done no research of your own and have no knowledge, or you’re purposely parroting the same lies the paid shills do because…
    Either way, the over prepared woman is noted to have easily defeated Trump in a debate.
    Not by any news outlet, not by any poll, and not by any pundit. Get your eyes checked.
    Some are calling his the worst Presidential debate performance ever, while still others are calling it the worst political debate performance ever, on any level.
    Good for them. All five of them must be very proud of themselves. They’ve no evidence for their claims, but whatever.
    No one could possibly imagine that Silicon Valley would back the most rational and likely candidate.
    When Trump wins, call this number:
    • 1-800-273-8255
    Imagine wanting to keep your emails from the public, what's the world coming to? 
    If you were known for satire, I’d let this go. You’re not, though.

    Because blacks and illegals are saying they’ll riot when Trump wins and everyone else will be revolting if Hillary “wins”, since she has already admitted to a desire to commit (more) treason while in office. Keep up.

    In… what respect?
    who won the debate?
    In terms of presentation, it was fairly close, but you can’t escape Hillary’s treason, and you can’t deny the moderator was biased (there’s a video of only his statements; notice he asked her zero questions and made zero corrections).
    Not many showing a Trump win; why is that?
    Because you need to check your eyes?

    I have never sat and watched a debate with Mr. Trump although I have seen clips from the GOP debates. Seeing a full length debate amazed me how under developed his thoughts are for just about any and every subject. Bring jobs back (from where?), stop companies from leaving by "threatening" them with import duties, his pride in being a tax evader yet telling us how bad our airports are and how he would make JFK into Abu Dhabi, etc...  His idea of expanding 'trickle down economics" which decimated the middle class more than any other single government policy should sound alarms to anyone old enough to remember Reganomics. The very rich and their companies have taken advantage of low to zero tax rates to hoard cash and or invest in interest outside of the USA. They constantly chase after nations with tax shelters, low wage and zero oversight in workers safety or environmental concerns. Our future does not lay with 20th century manufacturing jobs but hi tech, solar and other alternative energies, and vastly improving our education system. Donald Trump is selling nostalgia to economically  struggling Americans and promising them something he or nobody else could provide with building a time machine.

    Yeah, they’re called tariffs. Every sane country has them.
    'trickle down economics”
    Thanks for the leftist dialectic. It’s a great way to pick out people who have no idea what they’re talking about.
    decimated the middle class more than any other single government policy
    lol, the Federal Reserve’s demands to decouple currency from the money that backed it would disagree. The cloth strips in your pocket aren’t money.
    Our future does not lay with 20th century manufacturing jobs
    No one said it did.
    but hi tech
    So 21st century manufacturing jobs.
    solar and other alternative energies
    Nothing beats nuclear. Solar kills people in the winter.
    and vastly improving our education system.
    Which is why he’s going to force universities to take the responsibility for student loans.
