We've all seen scumbag politicians say they'd do something positive for the rank and file, only to turn around and do the opposite right? Remember shrub 41 saying "read my lips..."?

What if Trump is doing the opposite? Yeah the governor of Floriduh decided to discriminate against 18-20 year olds and sign a gun grabber bill, but what has Trump done?

This president is a different animal than we've seen. He says some crazy stuff, but his actions have been almost universally positive...at least from my perspective.
He and his team are quite clever. IE Saying timely controversial things during the Presidential race only to get massive amounts of free press. Then he WON. Didn't matter that all the odds were stacked against him either.

Hard core support cannot be shaken with a stick.

The 2nd amendment crowd doesn't like any wiggle room or games.

At least I don't.

This coming after the first we take the guns blunder.

Smoke and fire.
I'm not a hard core supporter. If I'd spent time voting at all it'd have been against Hillary and not for Trump. We owe this man some latitude IMO just for keeping that disgusting traitor and her rapey treasonous husband out of the WH.

Just the same, this president is different than any I've seen and if he continues on this trajectory, I will be putting a check by his name given the opportunity. He's unconventional to be sure, but he has made a whole lot more right moves than wrong.

I already sent him money because of his campaign talk on immigration.

I should have given it to the poor.

Want me to pm my PayPal?

I made a contribution during his campaign. Was a small one for sure. Won't give more to RNC. Unless the uniparty jerks get out.

Important Info regarding the Section 232 Impact:



Despite a mid-April timeframe for a determination of potential tariffs and/or quotas, the market is already being impacted as follows:

  • Allocations from certain import sources are being reduced in preparation of a quota.
  • Quotes/offers are subject to change without notice due to uncertainty of tariffs.
