A brilliant campaign, the policies America needs

Reader comment on item: What's a Conservative to Do? Vote for Pence

Trump has run a brilliant campaign. The place is filthy from the basement to the rafters & people want a man in a top hat to clean it up. The nation is $20T in debt, involved in wars without end or plans, double and triple digit rises in the cost of health insurance entirely the doing of the Obama administration caused by its sophomoric understanding of the world. It's as if someone read Ralph Bellamy's Looking Backward and a clever tract on Das Kapital and went with that without picking up another book.

Donald Trump said he thinks he can get along with Putin and, if not, he'll change his strategy. "If not" shows he is neither narcissistic, sociopathic, and all the other fine words people who like to play psychiatrist on the web like to use. But when Hillary Clinton accuses Putin of hacking the DNC to show her colluding to defraud the Democratic Party and rob Bernie Sanders's supporters of their fair shake, she threatens war with Russia. THAT sounds a whole lot more narcissitic to me.

And by the way, Sanders and Trump agree on trade and on winding down these wars without purpose except to feed weapons manufacturers.
