    Bloomberg, once a democrat, then a staunch republican and now independent shared his views last night on Trump as a presidential candidate.

    If you're supporting Hillary - it's a great watch. If you're supporting an independent or are undecided - it's a must-see speech that provides a compelling argument. And something to share.

    If you're supporting Trump - it's an example of someone who doesn't care about party lines and is thinking big picture.

    What does that guy know about freedom? He banned "large" soda.

    Calling Trump a con while conning people with his anti gun groups was comical.

    But not small ones. Remember, small drinks cost more per ounce. Indeed, for a politician people looooove to label as "socialist" (seriously??), that later-overturned law did more to artificially support the freedom of a handful of large soda companies. And, yes, everyone can boycott at which point they will get bailouts and other handouts... propping up half a society out of a state of urgency that oddly didn't exist previously even though politicians running for office would otherwise always say the economy is a big issue.

    He does gloss over the issues behind "private sector" at 1:22. I'm not saying he's wrong, I'm not saying there aren't lazy people, I am not sayting all private sector entities fleece the public for all its worth on top of every taxpayer funded handout and tax break (one of which is corporate welfare, the other arguably isn't but don't say they don't get freebies because they clearly do)... but the private sector is responsible for, for example, ramping up college costs 1120% since 1978 - especially with the main reason being supply and demand and companies demanding people have bigger degrees for even lesser work that would never have needed such a degree before. Obviously the costs skyrocket and it does not matter who holds the student loan debt. Halting loans only means fewer people with degrees get hired and companies have already been offshoring jobs, so how the hell does America become competitive since any worker having to retrain for a replacement career now has to spend a mortgage to get a degree as a mandatory prerequisite... it's not sustainable and treating citizens who want to work and contribute by behind behind an 8-ball is, forgive me, truly horrible. Not to mention: Education HAS become a product and companies that won't hire, citing poor education, have valid points. Again, it's not a one-way street. Maybe Bloomberg will run for office and actually put out a solution to this and other issues to convince us he is the best candidate with?

    Don't forget committing crimes by sending out of State investigators to buy weapons. Trump hasn't been accused of that yet, story dropping as cover in 3....2....
