Re: “Hillary Clinton for president

Dan, you said that "restricting immigration is one of the most un-American things someone can say."

I'm sure that you believe that the U.S. is a nation of immigrants. But do you realize that those immigrants came here legally (through Ellis Island)? These immigrants went through a health inspection and were reviewed to make sure they would not become a "public charge". In other words, they needed a job, some cash, etc. They didn't come here and collect social welfare.

Is it your opinion that the U.S. should provide social welfare benefits to citizens of other countries?

Re: “Hillary Clinton for president

Set aside progressive ideology and ask yourself a few questions.

How many jobs did Clinton bring to Western NY? 13 weeks mandatory paid time off might sound great but do you really think that increasing the cost to hire people will encourage employers to hire more people? What does "standing up to Wall Street mean and how will that create jobs?

Trump has not proposed a voucher system to replace Medicare or SS and he wouldn't have the votes to do so it he wanted. The fact is that neither candidate has shown the courage to propose a solution to the massive unfunded liabilities in these accounts. I also don't recall Trump proposing any anti LGBTQ laws and he also wouldn't have the authority to overturn Roe v. Wade. A constitutional amendment requires a 2/3 majority from both houses of Congress and ratification of 3/4 of the states.

I understand the progressive bias but I think it should be based more on reality than on scare tactics. Trump would certainly appoint more conservative Supreme Court Justices. Hillary would appoint liberal justices and Citizens United could be overturned. But ask yourself which candidate has received the bulk of the financing from corporations and unions. Like I said, some objectivity might be in order.
