Re: Political postings

I suppose Trump supports transit and infrastructure spending, in an Hitler-built-the-Autobahns sorta way.

Though today I learned Hitler stole credit for the Autobahns. The first Autobahn was actually built by Konrad Adenauer, the Center party mayor of Cologne whom Hitler deposed, impoverished, and occasionally imprisoned and later was chancellor during the post-War. I'd definitely vote for a CDU if it rose from the ashes of the Republican party, though there's no Adenauers out there that I see.
