To any americans out there, I'm not going to make a long argument about why you should vote Trump.

Please, watch this video. Really watch it. Please.

You know who he was? I'm sure some do, those who don't can look it up.

I was a soldier in my country's army for 13 months (something like boot-camp, but since we are not in a war I choose to not follow the military route). As a former soldier, I would not want Hillary Clinton as my Commander In Chief. And for that very same reason I can't in good conscience watch her become the Commander In Chief of another soldier without it breaking my heart.
So I'm asking you to look past your own circumstances. I'm a latino, and I'm asking you to vote Trump.
Because I can sympathize with someone who wears an uniform. I know what it's like to have to miss birthdays, anniversaries, not knowing when you will go back home, or even IF you will go back. It is a difficult life. So please, don't put another burden on your soldiers. Not this one. They give everything to defend your country, they don't deserve someone who lies to the mothers of americans who died while serving the country.

Don't let Hillary become the Commander in Chief.

You mean the same guy that asks why we don't just Nuke the Middle East?

You think THAT guy would be more competent?

The same guy that villainized Gold Star parents?

The same guy that had his daddy get him out of Vietnam and then said John McCain wasn't a hero because he was captured?

I personally already voted 3rd Party, but if you think that DJT would be a better Commander in Chief than HRC, I think you are in for a rude awakening should he win.

Any double entendre is unintended I assure you.

Voted Trump for president, and libertarian candidates for the rest.

The election results are looking good so far.

This was a totally ridiculous reason for voting for Trump.

Trump has said that he will suspend funding of NATO for countries that cannot pay the amount that they agreed to. This is basically allowing Russia to invade Eastern Europe.

Donald Trump has also said that he would order the Navy to fire upon vessels that are being "disrespectful". This means the U.S. would fire upon Iranian and Chinese ships.

Trump is talking about war with at least three nations.

Almost every reason for voting Trump was ridiculous. Now we will see how this pans out.

Wonder what Trump will do first?

Pull the US out of the Paris Accord setting back progress on controlling climate change, or secure "peace" with Russia by lifting sanctions.

Putin already says he's willing to manipulate work with Trump

You know if he believed in free trade and getting rid of government mandated cartels then I could let a lot of things slide.

Yet he's talking about getting rid of NAFTA and placing tariffs... Did this guy ever take a basic economics course?

IMPORTS ARE ALWAYS GOOD!

Tell me, how many of you have ever told someone, "I'm not buying that unless you raise the price?". That's what tariffs do: they restrict trade. A key rule in economics is that the cost always falls on consumers.

Did you know that when China and Germany started making more steel than the U.S. (thereby lowering the price globally) the U.S. government put up tariffs and fixed the price of steel?

"But DeadlyAztec11, that saved the jobs of steel workers!"

Yeah, and who paid the price of that artificially high price? CONSUMERS! Particularly, the biggest user of steel domestically, the automobile market was decimated, absolutely savaged. Close to five workers in the U.S. lost their jobs due to price fixing per steel worker that kept their job.

Simply put, industries that relied on domestic steel to produce their goods had to start paying higher prices for both domestic steel and foreign steel. This means that they could no longer compete against other car companies in the world. The entire world was paying less for the same amount of steel.

What did the car industry do? They started sending companies over seas! The government played it's own economy.

My economics professor has a phrase for such phenomenon, "Stupid on stilts with flashing neon lights."

So the one thing Trump could actually fix is the one thing he wants to double down on. If people thought Obama was socialist then you have no idea. If we put up tariffs and get rid of free trade deals then you can expect industries to keep leaving, people will continue losing jobs and prices will definitely go up.

Some jobs are lost through regular market forces. Trying to force them to stay through price controls is simply ignorance. It doesn't work, period.

Micro and Macro Economics should be required education.

Quite, the moment I learned that it wasn't required for liberal arts majors is the same moment I realized why so many of them seem to lack common sense.
