re: I'm a Trump supporter but Jesus Christ look the voting block he is attracting! - Haughton99
[quote]Could that be more of a negative reaction to Trump than an endorsement of Bernie? Someone without much time to inform themselves may well find Trump distasteful, and choose Sanders in opposition. Maybe that opinion will change when hearing direct contrast to policy problems. Maybe not.[/quote...

re: I'm a Trump supporter but Jesus Christ look the voting block he is attracting! - Haughton99
[quote]I wouldn't take much stock in ANY DvR poll at this point in time. Messages and approach will be different in the general election than the primaries.[/quote] I disagree. Trump is not some unknown candidate. He's arguably the most famous person in the country. You can't find someone who ...

re: Something most are overlooking... - Haughton99
[quote] Really? Ever been to Texas? Good schools, good roads, great economy. [/quote] There's a simple reason for this. Most of your taxes you pay in Texas stay local. You pay school taxes for the schools your kids actually go to. You pay local sales taxes that stay local and pay for streets ...

re: We can cut our way out of our budget problems without raising taxes - Haughton99
[quote]Though that is from 2013, I think it is still probably largely true.[/quote] I've got to see the math. It shows we spend way more that Texas in combined local and state expenditures. I've lived in both places and there is NO WAY that's true. They can't build school fast enough over ther...

re: We can cut our way out of our budget problems without raising taxes - Haughton99
This is highly misleading. Most states leave it up to local governments to handle things that are paid for by the state here. In Texas, for example, health inspections are done by people hired by local governments, Schools are mostly paid for by local ISDs. We have a highly centralized st...

re: Shorting Louisiana - Haughton99
[quote]Now I don't think it will be that bad as far as the US and/or the world is concerned. But for Louisiana, yeah, I think things are really going to suck.
