I agree with all of your points and I'll make a few more. Trump is no Mussolini! Far from it. Aside from being generous, he is also very wise. Wise people can also misspeak. Have we all not misspoken? I know I have numerous times but that alone does not disqualify any wise/intelligent remarks I've made. While all the other leaders have built their lives around politics and have rarely held any private sector jobs (like the rest of us in the real world) Trump certainly has and we should appreciate that. Fascists don't usually do that.

I agree with most of the important policies and promises that have come out of Trump's mouth. While many leftists automatically criticize them and lump them together with the silly stuff he says I would think an honest, objective person would weigh each thought carefully before laughing him off stage. In particular his policy of limiting Muslim immigration won me over instantly. If we want to turn the West into Europe by letting in unscreened Muslim migrants by the millions than we will self destruct. You have to be blind not to see that. Since the President's most important job is to protect the citizens and he is the only one to declare it, he gets it. There is nothing xenophobic about it. It's common sense to stop jihad by immigration.

Unlike the rest of the nominees and unfortunately most of us in the West, ... he doesn't suffer from the terrible and dangerous disease of Political Correctness. I believe the States and world needs a leader like Trump now to help swing the pendulum the other way. You can disagree with him without calling him a neo-fascist. ...
