Summary: Trump's judgment is challenged on the morality and bankruptcy of his casinos and his understanding of healthcare. Healthcare is not medical care with prescription drugs that have become a leading cause of illness and death.

Donald Trump boasted of better judgment on CNN's State of the Union Sunday, but his pride of opinion could get him into trouble. We live in an age of specialization and no one can know all the answers to issues in the Oval Office. It would be better to have someone who is honest with himself and more careful with his words and can build a team for wise counsel rather than a bragger who bluffs his way into problems like we have now.

Trump's success as a business man has some relevance for the economy, but it's far more complex than that if we can believe Solomon, known for his book of Proverbs and history as Israel's wisest king. Solomon said, “Righteousness exalts a nation.”

From the Supreme Court's approval of abortion till now with their redefinition of marriage, this nation has been going down. All the promises of political hopefuls are empty without addressing the underlying causes which include a greed for gain. Why would Trump ever think America needed gambling casinos that take advantage of people who are ignorant of life's true principle that we are rewarded for service?

Trump's investments in casinos that went bankrupt suggests a lack of judgment (of which he boasts) as well as morality and his claim to be a Christian in that business is suspect when he has also been quick to make categorical comments about women and others and he couldn't give his favorite Bible text.

Healthcare is another example. Trump agrees that Obamacare is a disaster, but he still believes healthcare should be for everybody. Most of the candidates don't understand healthcare. Healthcare is what we do for ourselves; it's not medical care. Carson understands it better and is closer to a solution with the concept of health savings accounts. They offer economic incentives for positive lifestyle changes that can avoid the need for medical care.

This author in his mid-70's with excellent health asks, “Why should I be taxed to pay for the “healthcare” of someone else who wants to eat, drink, smoke and stress as they please? I haven't spent a dollar for any prescription in more than 25 years because I've learned that healthcare is about what I put in my mouth.”
If we were normal at birth but have problems later, we did it to ourselves and we can reverse most chronic problems by wise choices. The reader may find more information on how to do so amid the dangers of prescription drugs at
