One of my favorite commenters hit the proverbial fingernail with the hammer (the truth hurts) on who Donald Trump is.

Finding much the same sort of backers of Trump, as I did for Ron Paul. Totally ignorant of many issues in the world, and latching on to one thing. I knew fools who support a Canadian style Single Payer health system who were Ronulans ... yeah. Trump bleated about illegals, fine, great, what else does he stand for? those backing him tend not to know. Do the know if he is a gun grabber? An abortion supporter? Crony Capitalist who favors bailouts? They can't answer any of that, but dammit, he's got their support. Do I think he'd be better'n 0bama is and Hillary, Sanders or Biden would be? ... likely, he would be. But there is not much to being better than those four and he is way over there with them on way too much stuff. And he can't really claim to be all that great a businessman ... how many times has he gone bankrupt now? He might be good at starting stuff, but his long term running seems more than a bit lacking.Trump is forcing Republicans to stand up to the Chamber of Commerce and close the border. The border is open now, at least with Mexico. Anyone can go from Guatemala to Texas now. We did however close the Canadian border west to Lake Superior for reasons I cannot fathom..
