Donald Trump Reveals Plans to Reduce Income Taxes and Create Jobs
Donald Trump was in Detroit yesterday, talking economy and jobs. He revealed his plans to reduce the income tax rate for top income earners from 40% down to 33%, and renegotiate the NAFTA trade deal in hopes of creating more jobs here in America.
But let us not forget God’s economic policies in Deuteronomy 28 — “if you do NOT obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments and His statutes which I command you today. . .Cursed shall you be in the city, and cursed shall you be in the country. . .Cursed shall be the produce of your land, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.”
Constitution and Independent Presidential Candidates Announced
Two more candidates are in the running for president of the United States, looking to pick off votes from disenfranchised Republicans. Darrell Castle is running on the Constitution Party ticket. He is pro-life, and opposes socialism and world government.
Mr. Castle spoke to The World View about his intentions: “I believe the Constitution is the limit of government, it is the supreme law of the land, it is the rule of law in America, and it defines the limits of government. I’m the only one who points to the Constitution and says, that is your limit, and that is as far as you can go. That’s why I don’t get much mainstream press, because the mainstream doesn’t like that argument.”
Also Evan McMullin, Chief Policy Director for the House Republican Conference in the U.S. House of Representatives, has announced his independent candidacy for president. He is a Mormon, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and he wants America to be a powerful force in the world.
