The abortion rate was way down from the peak even before the contraception mandate. The steepest decline was during the Clinton administration. The decline may have been due to the fact that sex was in the news and treated as something ridiculous. Adolescents are resistant to sermons and sensitive to ridicule. If we want the decline to continue we want a President whose sex life will be the butt of even more jokes than Clinton's. Trump might do but we really need President Anthony Weiner. (Harvey Weinstein isn't funny enough.)
If the topic is gun control, the Left will respond to claims that we need guns in case we need to overthrow the government by ridiculing the idea that people with mere personal weapons can stand up to tanks. If the topic is anti-terrorist warfare, they will claim that "asymmetrical warfare" makes it possible for people with personal weapons to stand up to mere tanks.
Other than that, he's okay?

A simply way to lessen black-lung disease: strip mining. Somehow I doubt if that's what Wheeler intended.
Hmmm... So he's been taking notes on environmentalist tactics. The environmentalists have been predicting so may different types of disasters that at least one of them is bound to happen. When it does they will blame capitalism.

You still haven't gotten over being a leftists.

It is not a disaster for exporters ... who also have rights. OTOH, tariffs might possibly be less disastrous than income taxes.

If I wanted to read anecdotal evidence, I could get it from the gun grabbers.

The explanation should be quite simple: Democratic states tend to have higher taxes and state and local taxes are more of a burden on the poor. It's no wonder poor people are leaving those states.
At least those are the two best reasons to vote for Trump.

We can provide prosperity by making things more expensive? Isn't that part of the Democratic platform?

True success comes from prowess instead of diligence?
Who do I vote for to defend the rights of both kinds of potential Americans?
Some people are opposed to recognizing the rights of potential Americans.
When did you turn into a Democrat anyway? I thought the claim that working for less is somehow Unfair was the Other Side's idea. I won't more than mention that the people who gain are also Americans.

I think we should pay more attention to the rights of both types of potential Americans.
Speaking as someone who walked out on pot parties in the 1970s at Stony Brook, why would I ever change my mind just because people around me are changing what's left of theirs?

Before being appointed to the Supreme Court, Earl Warren was best noted for cracking down on people in an allegedly-disloyal ethnic group. I have no plans on voting for an Earl Warren.

Leftists treat free speech as a streetcar. When you arrive at your stop, you get off. Conservatives treat immigration the same way.
Many of the terrorists are able to plan the attacks full time because they don't have jobs. Many of the attacks could not work in an area where even a small percentage of the population is armed. In other words, if we free the guns and cut the dole, we won't have to close the borders.

How about protecting American consumers from above-market prices? How about protecting American exporters?

If Trump appoints judges who crack down on people Not Like Us, that means Earl Warren.
