A suspected Islamic terrorist opened fire at a gay nightclub in Florida, killing 50 people and wounding another 53 before he was killed by police. While authorities continue to investigate to determine whether this man had ties to ISIS, the terror organization has not been quiet in praising the attack. This comes three days after ISIS announced they would attack somewhere in Florida. Today's attack marks the largest act of terrorism on US soil since 9/11.

takyon: The gunman reportedly called 911 emergency services to pledge allegiance to ISIS. The President will hold a briefing momentarily. Compare this article to the original submission.

    Per on the issues-

    •Break up large banks; add fees for high-risk investments. (Apr 2015)
    •Why did we bail out South Korea? (Dec 2010)
    •Middle class spending $2,200 each to bail out Wall Street. (Oct 2008)
    •More enforcement of mortgage fraud and TARP fraud. (May 2009)
    •Yes, limit size of government, but address inequality. (Feb 2016) []

    Now return the favor and point out issues where the Libertarian party and Trump agree.

    With Trump, it's pretty easy.
    For any issue, he has at least 2 positions (1 for each audience he addresses.)
    Trump has no core values except to inflate his brand.

    Politically, he is simply a loose cannon.
    It will be interesting to see how many old-school Pachyderms refuse to vote for him in November.

    ...assuming he doesn't implode before then.
    (Pretty sure you can go to jail for fraud--and antagonizing judges doesn't help things.)
