If the left is so smart, why was Trump able to singlehandedly beat the entire democrat powerhouse? I'm sure that the left and some of the right will do everything they can to bring this country to it's knees to prove their point, but I have hope and faith that Trump will over come it, just like he over came the Clinton political machine of corruption and system rigging.

It's always interesting to see which threads some on the right are bound and determined to derail.

Would you care to talk about WHY those Nobel Economists feel Trump's economic plans are problematic?

Nah.
Of course you can't...

It appears Trump was directly working with Russia during his campaign:

Yes I know, I heard on another thread that they were playing sex games in Russia too. Trump dressed up as Little Bo peep before being sodomized by Putin. Or was that on Buzzfeed? I forget.

I don't personally know the esteemed NOBEL prize winners, but if you give me their names I will check them out, or have you already done that?
BTW my reply was because all I hear from you guys on this thread and others is how smart the left is, and how dumb the right is. I wanted to give you some perspective. You need it!

Because people like crazy. It's why we have people stop and watch trainwrecks and reality tv...

The country is already on its knees, praying for forgiveness for electing Trump. But, the end was to be signaled by Trump/Pence (Trumpets). Someone just heard it wrong.

This thread was started by an article.
Did you even bother to look at it before disregarding their statements?
Never mind. Rhetorical question.

Who the was saying that on this thread?

Geezus. I see so many people on the right byatch and moan that Mikeyy disrupts threads and then ignore when they themselves (and others on the right) do the exact same thing.

Also, the following which has been repeatedly pointed out but Repubs habitually avoid acknowledging it. Trump's plans for taxes are a sure thing to raise our deficit.
Phelps also voiced concern about Trump’s plans for big tax cuts and spending increases. “Such a policy runs the risk it could lead to an explosion of public debt and ultimately cause a serious loss of confidence and a deep recession,” he said.
And of course this prophetic line in the article:
Such disapproval though is likely to fall on deaf ears.
I'm particularly enamored with these two paragraphs:

particularly critical of Trump’s singling out of individual companies for abuse and praise, saying such interference could end up discouraging newcomers from entering markets and bringing with them much-needed innovation.
...
concern about Trump’s plans for big tax cuts and spending increases. “Such a policy runs the risk it could lead to an explosion of public debt and ultimately cause a serious loss of confidence and a deep recession,”

He's got the facts straight. Got the name wrong.

Barry's entire economics plan was based on precisely that. Backed GM and Chrysler, the economic losers, at the expense of the winners in the industry.. Backed electric over all power sources. One of which went down the drain before marketing a car. The other still heavily subsidized. Backed solar, wind, and other potential energy sources at the same time reneging on deals in place with oil companies.

Big spending increases? Obama did that and the public debt did rise. Now 20 trillion. Millions more incapable of or unwilling to support themselves.

Trump is not President. There is nothing in place that indicates that Trump's policies as President are not working. Nobel Laureates statements (2, not a pack) to the contrary.

You were the one that was talking about intellectual capacity on the first page. You always insinuate that you and the left know more than the right. I was just making a point. OH! and don't pretend that you don't derail threads and install your own talking points.
