QuoteOriginally posted by: ppauperThe GOP and the other candidates need to knock off the attacks on TrumpIt's looking increasingly like he's going to be the nominee, much too the annoyance of "the establishment". I don't think a single candidate has come out on top after attacking TrumpTrump will move to the white house and the IRGC will be moved to the cemetery.

My impression (from remote): it seems, it doesn't need much intelligence to become a real estate billionaire - but the US president???

I got the impression some republican-party leaders were quite embarrassed after the show -- but that's maybe filtered by our media.

The other candidates were given serious questions while Trump was given "is it true you call women fat pigs"Carly was in the junior debate, but she could have been asked "you are regularly named as one of the worst CEOs i history, why would we expect you to be any better as a president than you were as a CEO".Jeb coiuld have been asked "is it true you care even less about blacks than your brother"

QuoteOriginally posted by: daveangelthe Donald wants to put H&R Block out of businesssimplifying the tax code used to be GOP orthodoxy dating from the Gingrich era (and Ron Paul promised to take it one step further and abolish income tax and replace it by nothing)Some candidates promised a flat tax, others a flatter (than now) tax, still others to replace income tax by a national sales taxIn the past, Perry and Cruz for example have both touted flat tax plansThe US tax code is byzantine in it's complexity, and if it were simplified most everyone (except H&R Block) would be better offEliminate a lot (all ?) of the deductions and loopholes and you'll be able to get rid of most of the IRS and file your taxes on a postcard
