If you look at America and what it needs and doesn’t need in its next president and you see Donald Trump standing there, suggest his deportation. If you see Ted Cruz, convince him his Texas values should be honored by never leaving the state. And Bernie Sanders? Give him a ticket to Venezuela so he can discover what socialism really does to a society.
