    First of all, the subway was in the works during the Makowski admin. And I agree, it was a colossal waste. but the business exodus started when the Kensington and the I-190 opened up.

    Trump is not a take-charge leader, he is a manipulative salesman. Trump tells stupid people what they want to hear, but he is disastrously bad at taking charge of things. He has no idea how to solve problems he just has enough money to higher people that do no how to solve problems and hopes they'll do it for him. But since he doesn't know how to actually solve the problem he doesn't know who to hire.

    Donald Trump was handed a million dollars by his daddy. If I was given a million dollars back in the 70's, I guarentee you I'd be a billionaire by now with a lot more influence than Trump, and no bankruptcies.

    Wake up.
    Nobody is saying he lacks people skills. What we're telling you is that his only real talent is his ability to manipulate stupid people with lies. Manipulating people with lies is classic sociopathic behavior. Many sociopaths have enjoyed great success in life despite not being actually compitant at anything other than confidentally projecting compitance long enough to convince stupid people they can back up their lies. By the time you figure out how full of **** they are it's too late.

    Dude, you just described every single CEO of every corporation on the planet, not to mention every leader of every country on Earth since the beginning of time.

    I agree with you, people in politics sugarcoat their meanings so they can overreact when they get a warranted response in an attempt to bring people to their side. It didn't work for Clinton because people like the bluntness of Trump. Not everyone has the ability to understand political jargon nor the reasons situations are tense even though both people are talking "politely" to each other. At least with the president, his intentions are immediately known and he keeps us updated more than any other president.

    Do you actually believe that anyone can win the presidency without being incredibly ambitious and ruthless? The politicians at that level have a superhuman ability to appear to be relating to you... just you.. all 300 million of just you.

    Nice? Hardly. I'd prefer competence.

    Please explain the flaws of the electoral college.

    My State would have no voice with out it. You wish to deny the relevance of my state, and frankly my vote as well.

    So you understand that?

    Tis is quite fair. Each state has a say in whom is elected... just as with the EC btw..

    Popular vote is very UN fair, to the states and the people with in them. Small states would have no say. How American is that?

    Just wait til a Dem is back as POTUS. You'll find alot of the people agreeing with you on how they don't care about having a "nice" potus all of a sudden having tantrums if the president dares to say that they cling to their bibles and guns or that someone acted stupidly. They'll completely forget how they rooted on a man that issued threats of nuclear war on twitter while taking a dump.

    1 vote for 1 person. That's how it should work. It's not unfair if every person gets one vote. What do you have to say to those Republicans living in California or Democrats in Texas who are also getting their votes wasted?

    California deserves all of the crap it gets for all of the Leftwing silliness it enacts. Second, we were never meant to be a direct democracy. Otherwise your wet dream of Liberal ****holes like LA, NYC, Chicago would get 100% of the say as to the Presidential elections and the country's agenda. Effectively disenfranchising voters in the Heartland. Sorry, but the Founders were wise to enact the Electoral College.
