    I think the voters proved that's not true. Just like the democrats picked... Oh that's right you got Crooked Hillary. :crap:

    For different reasons that's one thing Trump and Bernie have in common, they can't be bought.

    If Burny wasn't selling all that 'free' stuff he could have gotten more support and seeing as how close he was to Hillary it could have gotten interesting.

    Trump is looking for money for his campaign, no one can spend a billion dollars to run for President.
    Bernie raised his money from regular folks giving small amounts they could afford, no super Pacs.
    There's no one else doing that.
    I appreciate your pointing out Trump spent his own money he did but also takes donations.
    From here on out its going to get real expensive.

    His fund raising went wonderfully he had money to spend.
    Our country is slow to change where Bernie is today the rest of us maybe in 8-12 years from now.
    It will take that long or longer for working people to finally figure out things ain't going to get much better and they need help.
    How soon I can't really be sure other than to say when you guys retire you will know.
    The farther we fall in earnings the more we will think about higher tax's on the wealthy, affordable education, social security and so forth.
    Right now too many people think they are living in the same America their Dad did.
    We don't live in that country anymore it's gone.
    but you can't get elected telling people the truth.

    Our tax system needs to be revamped and converted to a flat sales tax, that way everyone pays, rich, middle class and welfare recipients. The price of college education is obscene but that needs to be addressed at the schools themselves, the rich and the taxpayers don't have enough money to support free college. And if we quit spending our money in Afghanistan et al like we should, those savings need to be put towards our national debt, not someone's college education. If there were large abundances of cash laying around I could see increasing college scholarships but there are many other needs that need attention first.

    I long noticed on Truckingboards there is a lack of enthusiasm for higher education.
    The people who are going to create places to work in the future will probably be college grads. Truck drivers sometimes put on a second or third truck but that's not the norm.

    I was referring to Hillary's $250k speeches obviously pay to play. Unless they payed her $250k to shut up, that'd make sense that screech of hers.

    I think it's a lack of enthusiasm for handouts. Here's a novel idea and a pretty good life plan...enlist in your favorite branch of the armed forces signing up for a career of your choice, be sure that you get it right and get yourself something you want. If it happens to be a suitable trade on its own you can do well with it when you get out. Or you can utilize the GI Bill, which helps veterans obtain college educations at approved institutions. Either one would put you on the road to success.
