TRUMP POLICY I DON’T AGREE WITH.
I am opposed to the following Trump proposals:
1. THE WALL; …
Whle every country has the right to protect their own borders, most don’t have walls. Modern technology obsoletes them. Before we consider a Mexican border wall enforce the current laws. Since Trump has been in office, illegal entries are down 60%. There are many other ways to get into this country illegally other than at the Mexican border. And of course there is always that hi-tech ladder.
2. THE MILITARY:
Trump wants to increase military spending by around $450B. I am in favor of de-escalation. We have enough nukes to obliterate this planet several times over. We have more ships, plains & missile delivery sytstems than all other nations put together. It’s overkill.
If we devised a plan to reduce our nuclear bombs, say one for one with Russia and China, it would be far less expensive than to increase the stock. I am sure that both the Russians and the Chinese would be receptive to such an idea. No nation can afford to continue the arms race.
3. GUN CONTROL:
While it is the right of every private citizen (underage and felons not included) to bear arms, it is not necessary to have automatic high calibre weapons with large magazines. They aren’t used for hunting or sport, but could and have been used for terrorist attacks. Elimination would slow down the killings if there is another atttack.
Deporting 11M illegal aliens is not only impossible, but downright ridiculous. Take out the criminals, gangs, and other undesirables and let the balance of law biding good people have a path to citiizenship. Tighten up boder security, enforce the laws and we will see a halt to illegal immigration.
5. DEFUNDING OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD:
Claims that Planned Parenthood uses the bulk of its public funding for abourtions is false. It is estimated that Planned Parenthood health centers prevent at least 579,000 unintended pregnancies a year while it performed 370,000 abortions annually.
At least 60% of Planned Parenthood patients rely on public health programs like Medicaid and Title X for their preventive and primary care. That means blocking patients who rely on public health care programs from getting their care at Planned Parenthood centers. Envision devastating consequences to millions of people, those of color, people with low incomes, and people in rural communities who already face barriers to care.
