Rochester, NY. The biggest faker of all is none other than President Donald Trump. He is posing as a "Conservative," but he is actually a fake, Conservative. What is my evidence? You can look this up for yourself on the Internet. In 1999, he proposed that the Congress pass a new "national wealth tax"(not income) of 14.25 percent on all individuals who have a "net-worth"/"net-wealth" of $10 million and higher. That is a very "Liberal" idea. He wanted the money generated by it to be spent on two items:
- Totally eliminating the national debt, which sounds "conservative."
- Spending the remainder on adding it to the Social Security Trust Fund to make it more fully solvent for additional years, which does not sound "conservative."
I am assuming that most of us know that the research shows that it is presently 100 percent fully solvent through the year 2034 meaning that there is absolutely no reason to cut benefits right now, which the less than totally-truthful conservatives do not want the public to know as they constantly suggest that it is going to go "broke" and "bankrupt" any day now.
This man has been posing as a "Conservative." He has been masterfully manipulating all of us and playing us for fools and suckers— both his supporters and his critics, alike.
