Hey Tim, what are your thoughts on federal spending? Trump is looking to cut funds to women's health programs and arts programs, but where do you feel the money is best spent? A new health plan? Military? Rebuilding the Midwest's employment infrastructure? Space? Mars? Robotics? None of the above? Directly into his pocket? Curious about your view!
I have similar thoughts to most of what President Trump says. It's not our job to take care of every other country at the expense of our own people and veterans.
So no more foreign aid. That is American taxpayer money, to be used for American taxpayers.
No more half measures on ISIS. Let the Generals go in there and do what needs to be done to erase all the ISIS lunatics from the planet. In fact, let all those middle east zealots kill each other, they want to do it anyway.
The angry little man in North Korea needs to settle down. I don't know why he thinks anyone wants to invade the north. China needs to get them in line. And if Kim Jong Un does something stupid, like launch a live missile? Level the major North Korean cities in one crazy night of bombing and missile attacks, being careful to take out the artillery they have aimed at Seoul first..
All the companies outsourcing their jobs overseas, like all the Apple iPhone factories in China? No more. Big tariffs and taxes unless they bring those jobs back here. Automakers, Carrier air conditioning, all those sorts of things. President Trump must enforce it, because no politician will, and the companies won't do it on their own. American jobs for Americans, SCREW the rest of the world!
Those companies claim that the American consumer gets stuck with the high prices if President Trump puts those tariffs on. But I say that the consumers simply will not buy those items and the companies will get stuck with their inventory. Serves them right.
Make English the official language of the USA. No more bending over backwards to accommodate everyone else. Throw all the illegal immigrants out of the USA, let them use the legal method of applying for immigration. Build the wall on the Mexican border, and kill any ILLEGAL trying to get in past it!
Jobs need to be made here and kept here. Lots of cash needs to be spent on hiring workers to fix our roads, bridges, and other infrastructure. Expand the use of wind and solar power, Tesla and SolarCity are already making huge amounts of progress very quickly on this.
Space exploration? Meh. It's interesting but should not be a high priority.
President Trump has threatened to cut federal funding to sanctuary cities who harbor ILLEGAL immigrants, and boy, I hope he does. They need the federal money and won't last long without it.
Many companies are holding billions of dollars overseas, to not pay the taxes on bringing it back here. Like Apple, with over $200 billion being kept out of the USA. Give them a tax amnesty period to being the money back and spend it here, on factories and American jobs.
Did Russia help President Trump get elected? Who knows, maybe they did and maybe they didn't. I don't care. Clinton The Criminal HAD to be kept out of office at all costs. The democrats never made a fuss over Obama being born in Kenya, but they love to wail about Trump and Russia. Payback time!
I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. Hooray for America, and to hell with every other country. That is the LoudmouthTim thought process.

Sorry about that, Tim! There are certainly some points in there I agree with, like bringing a focus on sustainable energy and rebuilding jobs in America. I have concerns not only about Americans regaining jobs but also the exploitation of labor in foreign countries by the powerful companies who seem to only care about serving themselves, not the hardworking consumer. They should be taxed fairly based on their massive revenues, and that money used responsibly to build up the job market. Pittsburgh is a great example of a city built on hard work in labor which has fallen to corruption (UPMC) and gentrification. I hate it! I have to disagree about your staunch immigration stance, but agree it is unfair for folks to be living in the country and not paying the taxes which maintain the cities and institutions while others are forced to. I am an advocate for a diverse culture within the USA, and hope violence can end in favor of some compromise. I am concerned about the brushing aside of funds for women's health, public television, and art grants, but hope the system of checks and balances within the government will find fair ways to serve the needs of all. I appreciate the long response and respect your clearly well thought out views even if I do not fully agree, and hope you can use it for future Online Video entries!
