This election is about nationalism vs. internationalism. Getting away from all the email and sex scandals which has made this election a larger version of the Jerry Springer show, it all boils down to Hillary’s internationalism and Trump’s nationalism. That’s at least from the point-of-view of what they say, and we certainly can’t be sure what they’re saying is really what they mean since they’ve both lied so much. But that’s what it boils down to.
Internationalism vs. Nationalism.
Closing the border or keeping it open? Build a fifty foot fence made of cement and re-bar, or a virtual fence? Tell me which one Donald! Again!
Reducing immigration or keeping it going strong?
Negotiate more jobs-exporting trade treaties or fewer?
After that, we really can’t tell exactly what the candidates might do or not do. Okay, we know they’ll both lie to us. Trump will buy steel and cement made in China to build a virtual wall along the Mexican border, while Clinton will push the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a massive jobs exporter that will redistribute trillions of dollars from the 99 percent to her Wall Street cronies. Of course, Clinton was for the treaty before she was against it. I’m sure she’ll be for it after she was against it, as well as for it, but only after the election.
What a choice we have! This election could only be made in America!
