How the public views a Trump regime

The Hill - A majority of voters say Donald Trump would allow the U.S. to default on its debt and that he would misuse the power of the presidency to punish his political opponents.

And nearly half of voters — 46 percent — say Trump would use a nuclear weapon to attack ISIS or another foreign enemy.

Those are the findings of a new poll conducted by SurveyMonkey on behalf of the Lincoln Leadership Initiative, a new group helmed by prominent Republican critics of Trump who are advocating for the GOP to dump the nominee and return to its “foundational values.”

The poll also found that a majority of voters believe that as president, Trump would create a database to track Muslims and order military strikes against the families of terrorists.

Sixty-five percent said that there would be race riots in major cities during a Trump administration, and 44 percent believe Trump would authorize internment camps for illegal immigrants.

Those views are also held by a significant number of voters who are Trump supporters.

Among those who say they will vote for Trump, 48 percent say he’ll create a database to track Muslims; 36 percent say there will be race riots; 33 percent say the government would default on its debt; and 32 percent say Trump would punish his political opponents and authorize internment camps for illegal immigrants.

Only 22 percent of Trump supporters believe he will start a nuclear war.

His only supporters are the long-retired, blinkered home construction types, and the jerky-snarky white frat scum on websites like Reddit. Some are playing Trump while Trump plays them, and the ones I feel sorry for are the unalloyed true believers - Trump will never give them what they want. Only Hitler can do that, and Hitler's Third Reich is long gone.

Trump told the sneering NY Times Editorial Board that he could eliminate the national debt in 8 years. How?

Actually very easy. Most of the bonds could be paid back in U.S. Notes, instead of Federal Reserve Notes, on which which we pay continual compound interest - for nothing.

Combined with several years of at least 4% economic growth, which would be easily possible with the correct tax and regulatory reform, the greatest depression in the history of the US and the World (due to the greatest debt bubble ever) can be escaped from.

We just need someone who knows the score and isn't afraid to take on the bankers. Trump is that someone.
