NATIONAL SECURITY:If our enemies (ISIS, AL QAEDA) wants you to win so they can use your speeches to recruit more people on their side, that is not a good thing. The war against our enemies of today is not just on a traditional battlefield, this is why we need to be smart and not just boisterous. You cannot fight a bully by being one yourself, you scream for dialogue and peaceful solutions while you send out drones. In addition, with all the talks from republicans about being tough, it was this administration who managed to kill Osama Bin Laden.
CLIMATE CHANGE: If the liberals or democrats are right on this issue we still have a chance to save our planet. If they are wrong, the consequences are clean air, clean water, and healthier environment. But, if the conservatives and republicans are wrong we are FXXX!
ECONOMY: In 1992 the country is going through the same economic struggle we are experiencing today. The world is becoming more integrated and jobs are hard to find. A democratic candidate (Bill Clinton) was elected and the country went through the best economic growth in modern times and the national debt was reduced from $3.5 Trillion to $2.5 Trillion. Then, Geroge Bush and the Republicans took over and that debt ballooned to $12 Trillion. Not to mention, the worst terrorist attack (9/11) in our history and millions of homeowners losing their homes. Barrack Obama brought us back from the abyss and I was able to sell two of my real estate assets setting record sale amounts in their communities.
NATIONAL DEBT: Our national debt is currently at $20 Trillion and growing, how do we get out of this dire scenario. Let's break it down to ordinary family debt situation instead of looking for who's to blame.
There are two major components to eliminating debt.
First, cut spending to basic needs. When you are trying to eliminate debt you cannot fund 'what if' scenarios, you just fund what you need.
Second, raise your income in order to have more money to pay a debt.
I believe both parties are not ready to 'Cut Spending', but the progressives and democrats use that spending for social issues and conservatives and republicans are using it to fund defense spending. If you are picking a side you are still not going to eliminate debt both sacred issues must be cut.
Now, about raising income to eliminate debt. Progressives and democrats still have and edge on this issue. At the minimum, they are talking about taxing the wealthy and the rich. You may disagree with that approach vehemently but it is a way to increase our revenue so we can pay more principal on our debt.
On the other hand, the conservatives and the republicans continue to preach paying less taxes. I have never heard of a strategy about eliminating debt by reducing your income, it just doesn't make sense. You cannot reduce your income and eliminate your debt.
TUITION FREE COLLEGE: I am a father of two amazing kids, my son is ten and my daughter is 15. Three years from now my daughter will enter college. It is a scary thought, not just because of a child leaving you, but it is paired with an enormous financial responsibility. A campaign asking the wealthiest to pay more in taxes in order to support tuition-free colleges sounds appealing to me. Is it really wise to support more tax breaks for the wealthy over tuition-free education for your children?
A Deplorable Assessment of Mexican/Latino Immigrants:
What Would JESUS Do?
Which party positions are more 'Christian Like', let's take a look.
BUILD A WALL or PATH to CITIZENSHIP - Do you think Jesus would 'Build a Wall' or provide a 'Path to Citizenship?
GUNS or GUNLESS SOCIETY - My son once asked me, 'Dad will there be GUNS in heaven, would Jesus promote it'?
DENY CLIMATE CHANGE or PROTECT the ENVIRONMENT - Will God be on the side of OIL and GAS or SOLAR and WIND energy?
PAY NO TAXES or PAY YOUR FARE SHARE - "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's"
TAX BREAK FOR THE WEALTHY or FREE COLLEGE EDUCATION - I don't imagine Jesus electing 'Tax Break for the Wealthy'.
DEFENSE SPENDING or SOCIAL SAFETY NETS - "Sell all your possessions and give the money to the poor".
PRO-LIFE or PRO-CHOICE - Finally, this is the one issue I thought progressives will not be on the side of Christianity until I heard the answer to a question, 'Why does God allow rape, massacre, torture and other painful and harmful events in our life".
The answer was to this effect, "If God stops a bullet from harming you or any bad things, we would become mere objects created with no ability to make decisions". He also said, "We are created in his image and as a child of God, with the ability to choose or reject God". This is what the bible calls, "The Power of Choice". Our ability to choose God (like what Job did) based on our experiences in life including all the painful events that have come our way, is what separates us from animal and inanimate objects.
If God believes that we need this power to choose him out of our own 'Freewill', how could a man (or gov't) dictate what a woman could do with her own body?
Eliminating an innocent life is always a 'TRAGEDY', but God certainly gives us the power to make our own decision in this regard. People who support the right of a woman to make her own decision does not support killing of innocent lives, they just know that it is not their decision to make, even God respects that.
Issues after issues I find myself leaning with the progressive movement, not because of big personalities or hate towards the opposition, but because of what they are fighting for. They are fighting for issues that mimic the agendas of a true public servant, and at the end of the day isn't that what we are looking for, a good 'Public Servant'.
The "hurtful, hateful language about women" throughout the campaign, saying it was "painful" to those who expected leaders should meet "basic standards of human decency."
"I told them they deserve to be treated with dignity and respect," Obama said. "I wanted them to understand that the measure of any society is how it treats women and girls."
The jaw-dropping description of uninhibited sexual assault as a benefit of his celebrity poses a substantial setback to Trump's attempts to overcome his deficit with female voters with just a month until Election Day. Hillary Clinton and her campaign have repeatedly sought to portray Trump as disrespectful and demeaning toward women, bringing up a slew of rude and vulgar comments Trump has made about women during and before his run for president.
Trump campaign advisers were huddling together in Trump Tower Friday night trying to figure out how to react. Among the options being considered was whether Trump should make a public appearance Friday night.
COMMENTARY: This candidate tried to dismiss this event as a "locker rook banter". I could probably understand this explanation if you got caught in 'High School", but not at age 59 and recently married and just became a grandfather.
Could you imagine this candidate around your daughter or sister and hear him suggest to his friends, "Grab them by the Pussy".
BREAKING NEWS: 10-07-2016
Donald Trump bragged about trying to have sex with a married woman and being able to grope women in previously unaired footage from 2005 that surfaced on Friday.Trump is heard discussing women in vulgar terms during off-camera banter during the taping of a segment for "Access Hollywood," footage which was obtained by The Washington Post.
During the lewd conversation captured by a microphone Trump was wearing on his lapel, Trump recounts how he tried to "fuck" an unidentified married woman before bragging that he is "automatically attracted to beautiful (women)" and just starts "kissing them." The conversation came just months after Trump married his third and current wife, Melania.
Why less educated white men supports trump?
We are more safe by using smart strategy and steady approach. Sacrificing american lives just to get a single dictator is not a fair trade. On the other hand, insisting on diplomacy while using drones is a genius strategy.

If you are still not sure if you are a Victim of Fraud please watch this video on the right about "The Sunk Cost Fallacy".
Most of them are working in manufacturing, coal mine, oil and gas. Unfortunately, these industries are getting close to being extinct. This is not a fault of any political party because old systems are mere victims of advancing technology.
When remote controlled television sets became a reality it made the old television sets (where you turn a dial to change the channels) on the road to extinction. The workers in the manufacturing plant of those old version television sets did not blame any political party for their demise, they just adapted and transition to manufacturing better and newer television sets.
Now, SOLAR ENERGY has arrived. This is not meant by any political party to destroy any industry it is just a pure advancement in energy technology. It is just a matter of time before energy coming from dirty sources (coal, oil and gas) will become extinct.
One candidate promises to bring you back to the old system and creates a picture of the old glory days. He describes the problem perfectly but it is paired with a fraudulent promise. Promising to bring back old systems (coal, oil and gas) is like asking you to buy old television set with no remote control. Your memories of the old days maybe great but technology and systems of old will be obsolete and extinct.
We are now at a dawn of Solar Energy Revolution. We have at least one candidate who is saying that the old system (coal, oil and gas) is no longer sustainable. She stated that workers on these old and obsolete industries must now train on how to manufacture solar panels so they can transition to this new technology.
A candidate should be able to tell you what you need to hear and not just what you want to hear.
Finally, the republican candidate reminds me of that guy in a commercial for Lifelock where he keeps telling you that there is a problem but does not offer any solution on how to fix those problems. The point is, 'why monitor a problem if you don't fix it". This perfectly describes who Trump is, a problem monitor with no solutions.

Just like in any relationship, work environment, sports and military setting, working together is always better than being ruled by a bully. The worst people in this planet are those who believe only in themselves.
Real estate value is directly affected by policies of who is in power. If your real estate assets are in good shape, then it is a must that you support the party in power during this period.

Most countries pay their workers in a day what American workers get in an hour. We can only compete if we focus on innovation and technology and not from what we have done in the past.
