Trump is a philosophically unmoored political opportunist who would trash the broad conservative ideological consensus within the GOP in favor of a free-floating populism with strong-man overtones. Trump"s political opinions have wobbled all over the lot. The real-estate mogul and reality-TV star has supported abortion, gun control, single-payer health care " la Canada, and punitive taxes on the wealthy. (He and Bernie Sanders have shared more than funky outer-borough accents.) Since declaring his candidacy he has taken a more conservative line, yet there are great gaping holes in it.

First of all, I would like to thank you for putting this debate up and allowing me to debate this topic with you. I would also like to thank all of the people who will be voting on this debate. I have debated this in my school many times with many liberals and consider myself to have a pretty solid argument. I do respect your opinion, and others' opinions as well even if I don't agree with them myself and I will try my hardest to keep this civil if you will. Secondly, I understand that a lot of people do not agree with his views and therefore will most likely vote against me, just because emotions get in the way of the actual analysis of facts.

My first little thing I would like to say is that Donald Trump tells it like it is. He says things that the American people need to hear, but do not want to hear, such as the fact that illegal immigrants are coming into this country and taking our jobs and opportunities. This happened one other time in History as well, and the solution that was reached was to deport the illegal immigrants back that they caught coming into this country. Their goal was 1,000 people a day, and in the end, they sent back almost 10,000 people every day. They didn't just drop them behind the borders either, they took them by boat and by bus and by train into the middle of Mexico so that they had no chance of coming back. It worked too, they were so scared of being sent back to the heart of Mexico where they would have to start over anyway, that they just didn't try it and illegal immigrants coming into this country reduced significantly. This is a problem in our country today, and Donald Trump puts forth a solid plan to rectify this problem, much like another did before him. Also, I would like to say that he is as real as they come these days. Yes, he might not be a true politician, but if people don't care that our current president was not even born in this country, then I do not see why they should care if someone who majored in politics is president. Donald Trump does not take any money from sponsors either, he doesn't need to. He funds his own campaign, and therefore does not get corrupted by sponsors to provide them such and such a deal when they become president or mention them in so many ads or whatnot. He says what he believes in and a lot of people don't like that and even say that they will move out of the country if he becomes president, but that goes back to him saying what people need to hear but really do not want to hear. We are supposed to elect another malleable politician that will bend to make everyone happy, when the fact is that is impossible. The 'same ol, same ol' doesn't work anymore and we need someone with fresh eyes to look at the issues of this country and has a sound immigration policy, focuses on returning manufacturing jobs to America, and negotiating better trade deals, and that is Donald Trump. It is make or break time in this country and drastic measures need to be taken. Yes, he doesn't have much of a filter, kudos to him. While others say it is a problem, I see it as candor, transparency, and a man who is willing to wipe the cancer of political correctness into society. I wholeheartedly believe that he will return our right to Freedom of Speech to the men, women, and children of this country. He is not the only one that slings mud, either, yet he gets all of the bad rap for it. For example, Marco Rubio saying, "If he hadn't inherited $200 million, you know where Donald Trump would be right now? Selling watches in Manhattan." The truth of the matter is that yes, he was given money by his father, but if he had no capability to make money and do it on his own, he would not have turned it into the billions and billions that he did. Furthermore, he does speak for us little people. I hate to break it to you, but we don't have much of a voice. Candidates pretend we do and preach to us about the "American Dream" and make big promises that they have no intention of keeping. Trump actually speaks the issues of us middle-class, blue-collar worker. Very few people actually care about bringing jobs back to the American people because they are tucked in the pockets of those who outsource to China and bend to the will of those and do their bidding. The liberals out there will use any tactic to make it seem like Trump is not winning so that they will switch to another candidate, when the fact of the matter is, Trump is the ultimate "stuff it" to the establishment Republicans and they are afraid so they use any tactic they can to destroy his candidacy. As a little side note here, I would like to say that I have been to one of his press conferences and I have heard him speak. Later when I turn on the news and see Trump on TV with the anchors talking about "what he said" I was surprised and disgusted. What they said he said on TV and the "clips" they showed, were spread out across the conference and they were just simply giving the public false information by splicing clips together to bend people to their will. This just proves that liberals will do anything to tear down someone real. His policies are spot on even. A study done by The Fiscal Times backs Trump's statement that illegal immigrants are freeloaders and it is just raising our taxes because we have to give money to the people who sit on their butts and wait for the checks to roll in. He also has a strong but sensible foreign policy. There is no immediate threat to the American people with the war going on the Syria and at this point, letting them fight their own wars and keeping our men out of harm's way is the best thing to do. Now, if it happens that there is a threat to the American people, then obviously we would have to get involved and Trump understands that. Trump even has the praise of the New York Times' Paul Krugman who says, "Trump is absolutely right on economics." Even Eugene Spektor supports Donald Trump saying, "I am a socially minded liberal, millennial immigrant, and Donald Trump has my vote." Since Trump has started his rise, nearly 20,000 Democrats in Massachusetts have left the Democratic party and have either converted to Republicans or have went Independent, many of them supporting Trump along the way.

I think it is obvious why so many people support Donald Trump and my final thought is this...
Let's make America great again.

Thank you for allowing me my rant, good day.
