6. The excuses from him and his campaign about "being smart" for not paying taxes

Last edited Tue Oct 4, 2016, 10:03 AM - Edit history (1)

show that he's a "status quo special interest" business person.

Norquist was just whining about how "Hillary knows that the special interest real estate owner/developers have tax dodging loopholes, where they get to report negative income and dodge taxes on huge profits they made elsewhere. So her saying tRump pays no taxes was a cheap shot." Is tRump campaigning to pay more of his fair share and eliminate this skeezy loophole? No. He openly wants to push more tax cuts to benefit him, as an official campaign policy position.

He wants to brag he's worth $10 billion dollars, and be able to openly, legally declare he never makes any money. And be proud that he gets away with it, and brag that he wants to keep getting away with it. At the same f ing time. HE'S the special interests that the repugs are constantly screaming about. HE is everthing that's wrong with the system, and he's camoflaging that fact by going right on stage using the system, to run to lead the system, and he's running by using the "tRumpf's furious about the fact that everything is wrong with the system" lie, as a campaign tool and principle. He's using the system, to get put in charge of the system, runs with demagogic bashing of the system, as head of the party that made the system, and his party fights against every change to the system. This is eye crossing propagandic duplicity performed in a way that only the gop could ever hope to get away with. It's like corrupt gop jailables Christie, Giuliani, and tRump saying "lock her up", to rally their fans.

The same goes for his bragging about campaign contributions he always makes that result in our elected officials, paid by our tax dollars, not his, doing whatever he wants and kissing his ass. He doesn't pay taxes, so he has plenty of money available to pay off our tax dollar paid public servants, to act in his interest instead of ours. "I got rich, through bribery of our corrupt political system, I'm here to brag about how I'm rich, and to say I'm very interested in destroying the system that made me rich." (Cut to camera two, where tRump pinhead followers nod heads in agreement. Listen to them cheer.) He's not offering to alter the status quo on buying elected officials, he's running to be an elected official, is taking kickback contributions as campaign contributions now, won't divest from his business empire so Putin will wind up openly bribing him with real estate development deals in Russia. Would he take a bribe through his Foundation? He's been playing fast and loose with every angle of the Charitable Foundation tax code for years. So he's currently getting bribed and paid off through the tRump Campaign, the tRump Organization, and the tRump Foundation, basically every one of the 3 prongs of his public existence.

There was an interesting moment in the debate, where he talked about how there was tremendous waste in the military, because of "incompetent management by Dems". You could just see him rooting around in his memory for $2,200 toilet seats and $500 dollar hammers, but then he didn't say it because he knew he'd get the numbers wrong, and those things happened during Raygun, and it would open up the Halliburton can of worms, which would displease trump supporter dick Cheney. Still, the party line from tRump is "there's tremendous waste, so I'm going to massively increase military spending." To pay for his invasion of Mexico, or the 30 million person deportation force, maybe.
