Point one: Buchanan laughed at Trump's tax plan, saying it was a recipe for massive capital flight. Makes me think of the Hitler quote Doug has in _Wall Street_.

Point two: So where is he going to get the money to rectify income disparities? America's "foreign enemies"? That wouldn't be very isolationist of him.

Point three: There are other "democracies" with greater income diparities than the U.S.
