30. You are correct. My 22 year old college educated son is a Trumper. I told him last night his views

donít count in my house because he has no idea what is happening. Many young people today couldnít answer basic civics questions. Young men see Trump as macho and want to emulate him because of his wealth and ability attract women. They have no clue how his policies, destruction of the regulatory system of our government, and how his federal court judicial appointments will effect their lives and their kids lives. But can I blame them? I was a Trump fan during the Apprentice years. I bought into his fiction of being a billionaire even though as a resident of NJ I saw him destroy Atlantic City with his gaudy, mismanaged casinos. It was only during the campaign that I realized that Trump was an ignorant fool who knows nothing. For young men Trumps appeal is understandable. When I was 19 years old I voted for Ronald Reagan and as a young man bought into the thought that the Dems were weak. After all Carter didnít inspire confidence in our nation. As I grew older, went to college and law school, I realized that the Republican Party were nothing more than religious zealots who stood for nothing. As a lawyer I saw the Rs push Tort reform and bankruptcy reform two areas of law I specialize in. Bankruptcy reform under W was especially cruel, a big give away to the banks who wrote the law. Most people filing bankruptcy are hard working middle class people who suffered from either divorce, job loss or medical condition that wiped them out. 96% of my clients were ashamed to be filing bankruptcy and never thought they would. After Bankruptcy reform, the legal costs of bankruptcy increased and make filers jump through hoops before they can file. The biggest indignity is that before you can file a debtor must take a credit counseling course which informs people they can save money by turning off the lights and other idiotic suggestions. Funny how the banks who were bailed out and caused the Great Recession were never required to take such courses before lending huge some of money to people without verifying their income. Republicans have really fucked up this country. Sorry for rambling but itís all so crazy.
