Globalization was all well and good when it was about expanding economic opportunities, setting up factories and businesses with desperately needed jobs in places that had no other economic options to join the global marketplace.
The downside was yes, this cost some jobs at home, but this was somewhat mollified by understanding that the dollars per day those companies were paying the new workers was economically transforming in those areas.Read more
While most of the replies MarthaMyDear received from people on-the-Right were gracious, SmartDoctor told her what a lot of Americans are thinking.
It's too late Martha...the damage is already done.Read more
Just curious what evidence you have that Trump is a fascist? Nothing he has done points to it nor anything he says.
Though I am sure you think vetting Muslims from war torn regions with links to terror organizations is your best point. Or even the fact he wants to rid our country of the millions of illegal aliens weighing down our country and build the wall are your best argument. If anything those are nationalist ideas because they put Americans first.Read more
"I feel like I am attending a meeting of a religious sect here this morning. It’s as if the global revolution of 2016, Brexit, Trump, the Italian rejection of the referendum, has completely bypassed you.
You can’t face up to the fact that this bandwagon is going to roll across Europe in these elections in 2017. A lot of citizens now recognize this form of centralized government simply doesn’t work.
Opposition to "Globalism" as used in these sorts of debates is not about opposition to free trade, as the Brexiteers you referenced have repeatedly shown. Globalism is the idea that supranational considerations and organization are superior to local/national ones.
This often entails the loss of local/national sovereignty to organizations like the EU, NATO, WTO, UN, TPP, etc. which in their own ways limit the ability of local/national governments to legislate/act as they wish and, most importantly, reduce the ability of citizens to hold their governments to account.Read more
Globalism is a defective and manipulated version of capitalism where the corporate influence corrupts and subverts elected officials to set trading preferences to benefit the large and influential over the small.
On the political front, globalism is the authoritarian philosophy which believes central control is better than dispersed government.Read more
Globalism's ultimately about the Communist ideal. A two class society of Elites and a Proletariat that is entirely dependent upon the elites for survival. "Free" trade is the vehicle to achieve that.
A society, like America, that produces no tangible goods and an ever decreasing amount of IP, cannot survive.Read more
Why not just pull the money, but continue to go and participate like all the rest of the UN freeloaders, until it implodes on its own?
The UN is just a private club that takes our money and does all the wrong things anyway. Besides Obama and his special cluster of intimate anti-American know-it-alls, isn't the UN the reason we now have so many refugees in our country when we didn't invite them?Read more
In 1991 we had BALANCED trade with Mexico - and for that matter, with Canada as well. Then came NAFTA and SUDDENLY we had a large trade deficits.
Let's look at trade deficits with THREE nations and remember we have "trade agreements" with them - all dollars in billions:
1991 - MX 2.4 surplus, Canada 5.1 deficit, China 12.7 deficit
1994 - MX 1.5 surplus, CA 13.9 deficit, CN 29.5 deficit
2000 - MX 24.6 deficit, CA 51.9 deficit, CN 83.8 deficit - favored nation by Clinton in '98.Read more
As the NWO gets bigger, because they produce nothing, provide no revenues, they need to create more ways to tax you, it has nothing to do with 'global warming'.
Imagine the savings if the USA stopped funding the UN and reduced our federal monster government back to it's Constitutional mandate (before it self creates it's own full blown tyrannical plan).Read more
