Why Trump's Bankruptcies Might Make Him a Great President

By Mike Shoesmith

Donald Trump has never filed personal bankruptcy. People have falsely claimed he has the response to which from Trump has often been swift and embarrassing for the accuser. Donald Trump has never filed personal bankruptcy.

Now that we've cleared that up let's discuss the companies Trump has owned which he has allowed to fall into bankruptcy. It all boils down to basic economics. If a branch of the  Trump empire fails to produce be it due to local mismanagement or economic downturn in that particular area or whatever, that branch, like that of a tree, is cut off. This keeps the tree healthy and productive. The Bible even uses this exact same analogy.

John 15:2... He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.

So why would this make Donald Trump a good president? Imagine the sum of money being wasted in government; the agencies which exist which, if permitted to go "bankrupt" or cut off from the tree would save the American taxpayers real money which would then be put back into the private marketplace otherwise known as the American dream.

Instead we have seen a doubling of government spending since 1948 to 21% of gdp. The amount of cronyism and nepotism and fraud and election buying is simply staggering. There has been exactly zero measurable effort to reign in the pigs at the trough (a long, narrow open container for animals to eat or drink out of). Someone needs to audit the government and get the chainsaw ready.

Donald Trump has been battle-tested in this arena. The fat cats in the Washington uniparty are deathly afraid of Donald Trump because Trump speaks American. No matter if you're a Howard Stern fan or a dry-county Baptist, it should be clear to all that Donald Trump knows what made him successful, that is, limited government and American exceptionalism. If you're not a fan of that but you prefer politics as usual then perhaps consider staying home on election day.
