I can think of very few immigrants in positions of power in the U.S. I'm sure, we've got a few congressmen who were probably immigrants, and we have
some dual-citizenship Israeli-American senators and appointees, but really very few immigrants in any real power.
We do have corporations with lots of foreign money Funding candidates now, and that is definitely a HUGE issue.
You're right about economies being battlegrounds, but its not new. In the 1980's, after a very flat debt curve, the nation was in a panic over the
rapidly skyrocketing Reagan debt. What happened in the end, as a result? The Soviet Union collapsed (it was more complex than that, but that was an
economic war.). Shortly after, everyone was in another panic "the Japanese are buying up our whole country!" well, they were - we drew them into a
massive U.S. Property purchasing frenzy. That collapsed, their Yen was left here, and so were the vast swaths of properties they defaulted on.
If I've learned anything about economic warfare, its these three things:
1) when things look bad for the U.S. Economy, its usually trickery in action
2) the middle class takes the brunt as the economic war rages on
3) the U.S. Always wins. Ultimately, the middle class ends up left with a smaller share of a much larger pie
This is simply my 36 years of observation and research. Of course, UT doesn't mean history will repeat again, but it sure looks like it is so far.
