How many of you can afford a Hillary T-shirt that costs $45?

To The Daily Sun,

Let's look at some facts about Hillary Clinton.

— Fifty-four percent of all American voters have an unfavorable view of Hillary Clinton.

— Sixty-seven percent of American voters find Hillary Clinton not honest and trustworthy.

— Seventy-one percent of men and 64 percent of women find Clinton not honest and trustworthy.

— Seventy-four percent of Independent voters find Clinton not honest and trustworthy.

— Thirty-five percent of Democrats find Clinton not honest and trustworthy.

It's difficult to trust a politician who lied that she dodged sniper bullets, Benghazi was caused by a video, and there are no classified emails on her phone (at least 1,818 Clinton emails contain classified material).

Hillary Clinton claimed to be fighting for us (the little people). How many of you can afford a Hillary T-shirt — the cost is $45. Why won't she tell the American people what she told the Wall Street crowd in her $600,000 speeches?

Hillary stated that she wanted to continue the success of President Obama. Did she mean things like the U.S. has had a record 10 straight years without 3-percent growth in Gross Domestic Product (GDP) — GDP is used to determine economic performance — or that only 15 percent say they have benefited from Obamacare?

Why is it okay for President Obama to take years to make a decision on the Keystone pipeline but it is unconstitutional for the U.S. Senate to wait a few months on a Supreme Court judge nominee?

Explain exactly how you would go about deporting 11 million people

To The Daily Sun,

How do you move 11 million upward of 3,500 miles?
Donald Trump and many of the other republican candidates would have you believe that they would and could move massive numbers of human beings thousands of miles. So let's ask how and what happens when you get to the
border with 11 million people.

First, how? A deportation force has been suggested but like so many childish fantasies in this year's debates what would that look like and how much would it cost. Well, this would require a force of tens of thousands of new federal officers suitably trained, clothed, armored with transportation resources. How long would this take? And how much would it cost?

But wait, how do you determine who goes? So you need thousands of additional immigration agents working overtime to determine status. This takes training and time and money and office space. That's just the staff but how do you ensure that none of these are American citizens swept up in a dragnet? So you have to expand the notoriously clogged deportation court systems. More staff, more money, more time.

So jumping ahead. You have a trained deportation force, staff, courts etc. Now, how do you move people? In cattle cars like the Nazis? In tractor-trailers? Summer? Winter? How do you keep them from dying in route? Do you stop at night? Where? Do you feed them? Where are your mobile kitchens? Sleep facilities? Eating facilities?

Second, let's say you are arriving at the border with thousands and thousands of vehicles and tens of thousands of people, sort of like the Gulf War or D-Day. It is a massive logistics nightmare. You will be forced to build thousands of camps to house people. Summer? Winter? Food? Logistics? Nightmare?

And now what? You are at the border with millions of people. And what? Mexico has closed its borders. They refuse to repatriate 11 million Mexicans. Now what? Are we going to war? Whose side do you think these 11 million people will be on?

We need real leaders, not children with fantasies.
