    When he said that he doesn't pay taxes because he is smart. And he has no economic policies or healthcare or education policies. He just says that the other party isn't doing well on these issues but is very vague bpabout what he would do if he was President. We don't know much about his policies apart from the ones about building the wall (which Meixco will not pay for), banning Muslims and scrapping Obamacare.

    Quite easily really, you go into the polling station and mark the ballot paper next to Trump's name in accordance with voting procedure.

    It of course is funny to say that Trump has no policies other than building a wall, care to tell me Clinton's? We hear the sound bites, and very heavily Clinton leaning at that, and have no real coverage of the candidates and their policies.

    He is smart to figure out a way to not pay taxes legally.
    No economic policies? haha you must've missed the part where he would remove regulations, have a tax if you want to sell into the usa from a foreign country, lowering corporate tax, lowering income tax, ... etc etc etc

    You are clearly under estimating the foolishness of most of his supporters.

    I was talking to someone about the US election today, and they've convinced me that I would actually vote for Trump. His reasoning went like this:

    If you think that neither Trump nor Hillary would be a particularly suitable president, then Trump is ironically the safer bet. US politics is a minefield; the two Chambers mean it takes a very wily, shrewd political operator to make any real change. Now this is most certainly not what Trump is. Were he to be made President, it is highly doubtful he could bring about any of the sweeping changes which people seem to fear. Hillary on the other hand, is a seasoned professional at playing the game. She's been in politics for years, she knows all the secret handshakes and is the embodiment of everything people loathe about career politicians. She would certainly be far more capable than Trump of making grand changes.

    I couldn't really fault his logic. And by the by, I've still yet to hear a single legitimate reason to oppose building a wall along the border with Mexico. Trump may have said plenty of things I disagree with, but I can't really understand why building a wall along a border with a foreign country is so terrible, especially when you consider the huge drugs problem gripping the US at the moment.

    I'd rather go crack and then heroin OD, supposed to be the absolute best way to get that ending.

    Building a wall won't stop the drugs problem, for several reasons.

    Firstly, the wall isn't going to stop people or objects from getting through. They've tried fences and barriers, and people break through them, climb over them or dig under them. They can't patrol the whole border, so they won't be able to stop people without huge expense.

    Secondly, the drugs problem in the US isn't all coming from south of the border. Homegrown drugs are a problem too, so even if they could design, find funding for (cause Mexico isn't going to pay) and build some kind of magical forcefield wall that actually stops people, it's only likely to increase the cost of drugs, rather than stopping them getting in.

    More expensive drugs can lead to an increase in acquisitive crime, so that might not actually be as good a thing as it sounds.
