From Dr. Block:
This is one of the best pro Trump articles I've yet seen:
Does it convince you.

Do you realize that when Peters makes this point in support of Trump it is totally asinine?:
Trump is arrogant, a blowhard. He may be a dick. But he hasn’t killed anyone that I am aware of, either himself or by proxy.Unless their mothers died in childbirth, the same point could have been made at some point in support of Hitler, Mao, and Stalin.
That when he writes:
He doesn’t seem eager to get the US involved in more wars.he is incorrectly stating Trump's position?
Trump is very eager to go to war. he doesn't want to do it for nation building, But to "fight ISIS."
Anyone who claims Trump isn't eager to go to war has failed in understanding even in a shallow manner Trump's true position as stated by him.Donald Trump would deploy up to 30,000 American soldiers in the Middle East to defeat the Islamic State, he said at Thursday night’s debate.Trump was answering a question about comments from General Lloyd Austin III, the head of U.S. Central Command who said more troops on the ground would be needed to defeat ISIS in Syria and Iraq.“We really have no choice, we have to knock out ISIS,” Trump said. “I would listen to the generals, but I’m hearing numbers of 20,000-30,000.”
Further, Trump has some of the most insane war hawks surrounding him. He recently tweeted out praise for a book written by General Michael Flynn (that has a super neocon co-author), Flynn is certifiable. And Trump counts him as an important adviser?
Trump also just named Peter Navarro to his economic advisory team..Here's what Tyler Cowen said about recent Navarro books (my bold):
Navarro has lately been in a China phase, with three books, numerous articles and the documentary, and that is the work that has resonated with the Trump campaign...
Navarro does not come close to demonstrating his opening prediction that future war with China is “very likely.”... his "The Coming China Wars" is mostly a series of emotional diatribes against the Chinese government...Do you seriously want to have a nutjob like this being taken seriously by your presidential candidate?
Further, you have yet to provide me with anyone who has rebutted the charges made by neocons that Hillary has backed down when it comes to Russia.
Walter, every link you have sent me comes from authors that fail to understand basic facts of the current presidential campaign and where the candidates really stand on issues.
They do not address any of the issues that I have raised, including that it appears Trump will send troops into the Middle East, that he has crazed warmongers around him.
The links you have sent me are not from authors considering all the facts, They write like partisan hacks.
Finally, I am not a Hillaryite. You are getting to sound as bad as the authors you quote.
My point has been that I suspect Hillary might be a tiny bit better than Trump but that I consider both Trump and Hillary serious sociopaths not worthy of support.
To make my position clear, I am now forming Libertarians Against Clinton, Trump, Johnson and Stein, for different reasons I find no reason to support any of them.
My Prediction: If Trump gets elected, blood will end up pouring from your conscience.
The current candidates are all evil people, There is no principled or strategic reason to support any of them.
