There is such a push for globalization that they are trying to associate nationalism with racism.
I think Brexit scared a lot of one-world types.
What is puzzling to me (among many things these days) is how, suddenly, if the leader (or prospective leader during an election campaign) of a Nation
wants to implement policies that will improve the lot of his/her own people - that person is now subject to all kinds of howling and name
calling...racist, xenophobe, etc.
Since when was it the responsibility, or duty, of the Head of State of a Country to put the interests of all other nations, ahead of the nation whose
people elected him/her - and to pursue polices that will put his/her own Country at a competitive disadvantage?
Obama, Trudeau and Merkel are just three examples of this kind of Globalist thinking, which creates havoc at home in the name of improving the lot of
"all others" in the world. The United States is having a serious debate amid concerns about bringing in 10,000 Syrian refugees. Canada has already
brought in 25,000 - and has only 10% of the population of the United States.
Merkel, of course, is the architect of the million plus undocumented people who have swarmed Germany over the last year - and which will result in
societal tsunamis for decades to come (and all across Europe!).
The effect of unfettered rapid Globalism, in all of its forms, has about the same effect on developed nations as when the police abandon a
neighbourhood during a riot - the "disadvantaged" people break into the grocery store, loot all of the food, and then burn the store down.
Feel good "sunny days" clowns like Trudeau rush toward free trade deals (without ensuring that they are fair trade deals with checks and balances),
and global warming initiatives (forcing adoption of noncompetitive technologies before they are ready, destroying domestic industries, taxing people
and companies for using carbon-based products - when their Green Initiative Pact partners have no intention of...or are given specific exemptions from
having to...implement similar measures).
At the end of the day, Trudeau, like any other Head of State, is elected (hired) by the population of their Country, to look after their best
interests - to improve their lot in life. They are not elected with the intent that they should follow the globalist dictates of the UN, or the
multi-national corporations - each is installed to look after their own people first (in cooperation, as much as is feasible, with other Nations and
The Coach of the New York Yankees adopted a policy of allowing opposing teams to score runs, so they can catch up, if they get two or more runs ahead
in a game...and to purposely lose games, if they get more than two games ahead of the competition in the standings...or...
The Governor of Ohio raised taxes on businesses, in increments, until such time as this had the desired effect of encouraging employers to move their
facilities to Michigan or Pennsylvania...or...
The CEO of Coca Cola went on a worldwide tour, giving speeches and talking to the media...to let everybody know that there is nothing exceptional
about their product (compared to Pepsi or other non-name cola brands), and to make sure people understand that consumption of Coca Cola will lead to
obesity and other health problems...
All of the above are unthinkable, of course.
So why are so many of the current "Western" Heads of State around the world so intent on following such similarly ludicrous, and so obviously
Why does the media so vigorously defend, or even idolize, these anti-national figures?
Why are leaders who say, "wait a minute...this is actually bad for the people who directly elected me", demonized?
Donald Trump is the poster boy for wild attacks being made against somebody who says, let's stop this madness before the United States ceases to exist
as a sovereign...solvent...nation. He says (not always in the most eloquent manner of course), that America needs to stop people from pouring into
the Country illegally, that crime and drug trafficking need to be brought under control, that unfair trade deals need to be renegotiated, that taxes
need to be lowered to bring jobs back to America, that American needs to become energy independent, that strident measures need to be taken to keep
terrorists from coming to America (and to stop the radicalization of people already in America)...that his policy will be "America first".
Well, to hear the Liberals tell it...this makes him a racist, xenophic, sexist, nationalist, white supremacist, trade war mongerer, pro-global warming
moron (among many more negative labels).
How dare he, as an aspiring POTUS, pledge to put America first? Where does he get off saying he is proud of America, and proud to be an American?
He should try to be more like Justin...just concentrate on being handsome and dashing...hug everybody, and offer to share - no give away - everything
to anybody else...just keep spending until you can't borrow any more, then just print more money, and spend some more...be a good global citizen, even
if it means stomping on the heads of your own populous.
Don't try to get America moving ahead again...that will only make other people in other Countries feel sad. Don't make sure that your own homeless,
mentally ill, wounded or otherwise disadvantaged people are taken care...look after all the poor and starving masses in every other Country in the
world - in fact, just invite them all to move to America!
Don't stop ISIS in its tracks, enforce a no-fly zone in Syria to stop Assaud from bombing and gassing his own people, and create safe zones for the
Syrian people in Syria and surrounding Countries...keep the chaos going, and let the people flood into Europe, Canada and the United States, where
they will become generational burdens and permanent societal disrupters.
Come on Donald, get with the globalist program...help to further destroy America, so that the peoples of Asia and Africa have all of the jobs and
Come on America...vote Hillary Clinton, so you can have 4-8 more years of Obama's Yard Sale of America - and you can be led by a husband and wife team
who have made corruption a global (and highly profitable...for them) racketeering enterprise.
Come on everybody...be like Justin, Barak and Angela!
