I'm watching the fierce South Carolina primary contest among the six remaining candidates for POTUS and a few things strike me as astounding.
The first is that all the seasoned politicians on stage – Governors Bush and Kasich, Senators Cruz and Rubio – have been relegated to straggler status by the non-politician in the race, billionaire businessman Donald Trump.

- Bringing both corporations and jobs back to America
- Fixing our Mt. Kilimanjaro of debt and Mt. Everest of unemployment
- Strengthening our military
