Trump loves crony capitalism

What a surprise. Faux conservative Donald Trump, a developer himself, loves the ruling of the left wing of the Supreme Court in Kelo v. New London that cities can take people's houses to give to politically connected developers.
I happen to agree with it 100 percent, not that I would want to use it.

But the fact is, if you have a person living in an area that’s not even necessarily a good area, and government, whether it’s local or whatever, government wants to build a tremendous economic development, where a lot of people are going to be put to work and make area that’s not good into a good area, and move the person that’s living there into a better place — now, I know it might not be their choice — but move the person to a better place and yet create thousands upon thousands of jobs and beautification and lots of other things, I think it happens to be good.

Trump would be for the nation what Arnold Schwarzenegger was to California: an unprincipled egomaniac who would put personal aggrandizement and favors for friends ahead of fixing a badly broken government.

Did you hear his threats against China? He's going to tax them 25% and states that will create jobs. Taxes always creates job. And I thought only Obama thought that. I also love the idea of threatening a country that holds hundreds of billions of our debt. Great idea.

But I think it's perfect, I think the US voting populations deserves this circus. Communist Chicago Mobster against Communist Oligarch New York Mobster. Perfect!

Happy Super Tuesday!
