The United States today is increasingly flanked by sundry global economic forces without the benefit of political leadership present to conserve the national economic advantages through liberal intention to develop start-up invented industries and fair labor practices able to meet the economic war of attrition outsourcing American liberty to global control. In the historical stream of valid and just responses to foreign aggression and domestic repression the right way to meet the challenges of globalism keeping within a framework of constitution justice and equal rights for all requires the attitude of the impeccable spiritual warrior seeking after liberty and justice for all citizens. Globalists and short-sighted disaffected minorities are all too ready to join the globalist imperial camp offering everything to everyone as all consumers are treated equal. Every expression of racism and effort to subvert true equal rights and pursuit of happiness in the United States for all citizens equally results inevitably in a political over-correction by global forces to further erode the status of not only the indignant racial group but of national interests and security.
Pragmatically the United States itself cannot afford much more than the 2.4 children per family reproduction rate within the real environmental limitation given the mal-adapted elements of an economic structure largely designed before global environmental awareness developed. Even if indignant whites or radically invasive illegal alien Mexicans had their way and flooded flooded the U.S.A. with just their own genomic specialization affinity group the 2.4 children per family rate would need to be adhered unto in order to avoid over-stressing the environment. Global economic justice can only develop through particular national political justice developing one nation at a time. Imperial global corporatism hasn't any rational capacity to govern and instead simply markets consumer disposable Utopian remedies without any sort of rational plan for global governing. Global governing isn't the same as global marketing, yet global propagandizing hasn't any need for a rational pursuit of truth, the good or political competence it need only support global marketing.
In effect there are two major political forces in the world today in support of authoritarianism-one is socialism and the other is corporatism. Each system represses individualism and democracy quite well and would develop those repressive traits most fully if allowed to attain global domination for themselves individually or conjoined synthetically together in Corporatist-Socialist management-labor oneness. It is quite possible to plot the mass engineering of humanity sociopathically and forever nihilate individual freedom and security. Humanity is in pursuit of economic adequacy and social justice more so than the annihilation of race specialization or race separation. Through individual empowerment politically within secure borders and a general world of economic adequacy consistent with environmentally robust health human development may continue in the long range, there are no realistic monopolistic global political control system that would allow for human political freedom in existence today. A sober justice and pursuit of national security with zero illegal immigration and limited legal immigration is the essential starting condition for addressing present global limits to economic growth within this finite environment.
Propaganda broadcast corporatism has reasoning as deficient as this syllogism...all birds are mammals, all bears are mammals therefore all birds are bears. Broadcast logic deficits are what control the political issues of the day as corporatism is served up the planet fairly readily. It isn't the only wickedness in the world...humanity is born in original sin and will need to fight individually to protect human liberty and opportunities for justice. Adam Smith never intended capitalism to replace government, it is just a good economic method. When corporatism displaces real democracy and annihilates national democracy and represses free enterprise racism is just another enculturation tool to accelerate the consumption of security and end of national health.

Home independent power initiatives should be job # 1 for the Democratic led congress; instead they act as servo-unit socialist dupes for global corporatism. While one or two efforts to end the military peace support mission in Iraq might have been worthwhile, the obsessive, losing bills in disregard of every other meaningful measure that might be advanced seems a less than rational application of political power. Let me explain why…
While not a fully qualified GOPPIE I neither qualify as a card carrying Democratic Party Member, this by inference will let you know that I am a politically independent minded individual in the United States. With oil at 83 dollars a barrel and on the way to 100 dollars very likely, and with the value of the U.S. dollar sinking below that of the Canadian dollar-signifying the loss of comparative national economic advantage of the United States since 1992 when globalization set fire to the wooden foundation structures of the United States, the Congress is disregarding the Presidents 26% approval rating and vulnerable inability to veto rational, constructive alternative energy legislation for the time being. The Congress is serving up shot after shot for the goal with a majority height that even a midget center could block, and Hillary Clinton is proposing a medical insurance plan for illegal aliens and disregarding my country doctor national medical insurance plan.
The Country Doctor plan would screen means tested poor, uninsured American citizens and send them to a physician for medical treatment when needed free. Every doctor in the United States could opt to treat one of every five patients gratis in exchange for federal malpractice insurance coverage. If every doctor were required to treat one of every five patients for free the medical system would be much improved with quality doctors available and a bit of public service for the physicians too. The government would delete malpracticing doctors from the program and thus medical competence in the United States would be better governed, and the government would simple provide a screening and referral service for patients and physicians. All social insurance programs require that the cost does not inhibit social and economic justice, that the program is affordable to the majority of the people and cannot be provided individually. Free lunches cannot be provided to a majority that don’t need it without transferring the cost to someone somewhere with deep pockets; and that is the also the core of the problem with American energy infrastructure in transportation.
Americans are importing fuel and cars and loans from foreign nations to move themselves about and to keep financing the federal government and economy while exporting overseas, importing cheap labor illegal aliens for construction work and affordable housing and continuously tracking down the historian Arnold Toynbee’s fin de sicle of civilization goal line. The Congress ignores all the warnings-even that of the brilliant Allan Greenspan and surges forward jettisoning intelligence as if all they needed was to look at the son of the storm trooper body builder of California for a guaranteed prosperity…that won’t work, it may be needless to say.
H.I.P.I.’s are a vital part of an alternative energy plan for the United States. The Congress should set about creating a bill that would encourage Americans to provide their own electrical power in part and that would lead to the ability for Americans to produce their own fuel at home for electric cars and SUV’s (yek). The Congress should stimulate a low-cost generic home fuel cell and home hydrogen electrolysis technology to produce hydrogen safely at home, and also create an array of home solar painting, solar roof shingle, solar building panel and solar panels for themselves that could be purchased with no taxes and with federal tax breaks. The Congress should include in its HIPI bill wind, solar and fuel cell technologies, small business supports for installers of integrated power systems at home, coordination with power company purchases of unused home produced electric power and so forth. Get with it congress and move on to things that work.
Auxiliary Troop/Guards for Iraq Security Tasks
It seems ironic that the U.S. federal government seeks to reinforce civil rights for ordinary Iraqis while enacting blatant age discrimination upon American citizens seeking to provide moderate cost security service for Iraq. The Blackwater expulsion order from the nation of Iraq by Prime Minister Maliki underscores the need for the U.S. Congress to create an auxiliary military cadre of former soldiers willing to volunteer for short six month contracts of military service where needed in order to provide security services without bankrupting the U.S. Treasury. I cringe every time I hear these political spendthrifts mention spending 'treasure' in Iraq as if the money borrowed from China were a native wealth. It is a discrimination against healthy over 50 to age 65 Americans with military service to prevent them from earning a living on short term federal contracts providing the security service such as Blackwater provided at high cost. Volunteers between age 50 and 65 should be available in a few thousands.
Airline pilots retire at age 65 nowadays, and many other occupations have had statutory limitations repealed-why should soldiers able to fire those glock .357 mags with both hands and toss a few grenades be regarded as geriatric cases that at best should work for mercenary firms such as Blackwater?
These former soldiers with contemporary fitness requisites would function under a separate military command structure although available for use in special circumstances. With the limited numbers they would not have more than three ranks and would serve under the command of regular Army field grade officers, perhaps as auxilliary security wo 1's.
Volunteer former soldiers in a 50 to 65 bracket could have a ten day language and culture/basic training course and a five day weapons proficiency retraining and be sent in to fulfill many security jobs as if they were going to Alaska to work on a seasonal fishing or seafood processing job. Personally I paint houses much of the year and would like learning more about Iraq culture and history in person for perhaps an average American wage or a little more as a temporary federal military employee. Perhaps in Washington D.C. politicians live detached from financial reality so far as to keep time with Senator Craig's toe-tapping, mortgage crisis/fuel crisis disregard diplomacy and full spend ahead, here is an opportunity to do one thing right.

Senator Levin may seek to create a sudden U.S. withdrawal to permit a bloody Muslim fratricide to develop for some reason, or Senator Levin may simply be so callous politically as to regard the Iraqi Muslims as lives not worth protecting if there is some cost to Americans, and yet Senator Levin and others of his persuasion could believe that because Iraqi sociology is infused with elements of sectarianism political remediation efforts by the United States are not feasible; the United States can control its Iraq policy transition through strength instead of crash landing it through fear and flight. Stabilization of sectarian regions of Iraq within a federal structure as Senator Biden mentioned is still viable policy course alterity, while the more fossil fuel based policies of President Bush also have a chance of bringing about a coalescence of Iraqi domestic political actors and groups into a stablished, working social order at an a priori higher cost.
Senator Levin’s anarchic policy preferences may benefit in theory certain financial considerations of various special interests, yet without creation of a national domestic non-fossil fuel alternative energy policy to bring the people of the United States directly to complete energy independence from globalization the bills generated in the Senate to crash land Iraq policy and walk away to hoard money in the U.S.A. with a current accounts deficit hasn’t much prospect of working.
As I ride a bike mornings along vast lines of foreign made cars parked along city streets, and watch the foreign made cars moving along with foreign produced fossil fuels polluting the environment and destroying polar bear habitat through global warming I wonder how long the United States can last with such head up there a Senate policies that fail to recognize the extreme danger of reliance upon the internal combustion engine-fossil fuel anachronistic axis of debt. A century ago the motor-oil-auto-highway thing was American an upwardly mobile for the nation; now it has been taken over by the world and serves to destroy the nation’s future. Electric cars and home produced recharging power would be the right way for people accustomed to living within their means, but hey-what’s that…just borrow money from China and India, Japan and Saudi Arabia Senator Levin.
It isn’t especially in the interests of the United States to promote a conclusion of the Sunni-Shia schism that commenced with the murder of Ali, Muhammad’s uncle, it is a neutral point that would produced policy ramifications based upon the nature of the unified Muslim religion, neither is it in the interest of the United States to promote Muslim sectarian conflict because of the implicit retarding consequences of war upon social development.
The United States should not overrate the historical political significance of Muhammad’s heretical syncretism. Muhammad’s warriors plundered and rampaged through a North Africa long abandoned by the Romans and Carthaginians and gone over pretty well by the Vandals and other Gothic tribes on their peregrinations. The Muhammadist warriors followed the lead of the vandals in a reverse course and were stopped by Charles Martel in France efficiently considering that the Carolingian Empire had yet to solidify. Fairly rudimentary European forces with the song of Roland and other inspirational examples rolled up the post Umayyad Mohammedan powers inexorably. It would be wrong to say the Muhammadist surge had no salutary consequences…they removed the last elements of paganism from the primitive, underdeveloped and pestilential regions of the equatorial and near-equatorial regions of the Earth, and built a dome on a Temple Mount previously occupied by a horrible Temple of Jupiter as a sort of place holder until the significant events of prophecy would be fulfilled.
U.S. policy in support of a federal Iraq reinforcing sectarian enclaves would provide time for the people of Iraq to develop a unified government that each sect could trust while policing themselves and their own areas in the meantime. A federal Iraq could serve as a buffer between the Shi’a of Iraq and the Sunni of the oil states of the Persian Gulf and Saudi Arabia while purging their midst of the terrorist forces of Al Qaeda. A federated Iraq with a dedication to open democratic government might be a more trustworthy neighbor for Israel and provide a working partner for the United States in moving toward a regional development with environmental and social goals worthy of human beings today. The United States must detach its Middle Eastern policy from the conflict of interest of reliance on fossil fuels for national transportation…that reliance is a vast policy gaff that is definitely a lubricant for downward national mobility. A stupid people of a stupid nation will run up unpayable debts for various reasons and eclipse the light of its own future, America’s economic, political and educational declines with national and current account debts are coefficients of adversity presenting challenges easy to overcome but evidently easier to ignore for politicians owing their souls to the Satan of corporatist globalization.

It is a better bet that God is far more competent at creation and high tech than anything imagined by human researchers and thinkers, and that this present world and Universe as well as the great mystery of the beyond the veil of mortality, and space and time are infinitely well accounted for than not. It is more probable that the fine structure of the Universe and multiverse potentials exist as emanations from an omniscient intellect than that they are chaotic, random assemblies of a second rate nature patched together accidentally. Even the hairs of one's head are numbered, as are the superstrings and universes potential and actual.
Unfortunately a numerological approach to cosmological interpretations of theology and cosmology compels some to find the highest philosophical and eschatological meanings in ossified universal structures in order to determine truth consistency than applied with the erroneous syllogistic reasoning in a post hoc ergo propter hoc manner; the potential number of Universes is applied to try to impeach the fact that God created this one, to prove that he did not create this one universe either. Mal-logic aside, the emanations criterion that the neo-Platonist philosopher Plotinus describes definitely would encompass multi-verse theory, which isn't at all an astounding thing based upon the implications of the Enneads of Plotinus.
The technical structure of God is non contingent and cannot be inferred from anything in the Creation; it should be sufficient to accept the grace of God in that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to the world to be a light in the darkness and reconciliation unto eternal life.

The present war of terror prosecuted by two wealthy heirs of vast fortunes-the Bush and Bin Ladin families has show more than a modicum of insensitivity to the aspirations of ordinary people. In a recent video the Os Bin Ladin descried capitalism in a sour grapes complaint after the Saudi Government forced the sale of his portion of the family oil and engineering wealth and confiscated/froze the proceeds. The window of opportunity for course correction in international political and economic applied philosophy away from the present imperial slide toward a chaos of capitalism, communism Hindu and Islamic internationalism corrupting local democratic and economic political self-determination may not be open forever. Political ministrations to conserve national cultural opportunities may wither in nations such as the United States of America as confident wealthy political leaders fail to comprehend the consequences of the loss of American traditional cultural values and independence in favor of ingress of pervading internationalism that lines the pockets of those invested in global corporatism.
Local independent business people, tradesmen and the like may work and create new capital value and spend there profits it corporate global outlets that are whisked away to the global shareholders. The redistribution of local wealth to corporate shareholders and the influx of millions of illegal aliens to displace construction trade wage and contractor value are phenomena of globalization’s creeping amoral conquest of the United States.
The loss of national economic and cultural self-determination is in progress with an amoral global stew of Islamo-communist-paganism under an imperial ruling class moving in to replace it. Capitalism during the cold war wasn’t given an opportunity for a detached, analytical review and reformation for application to a post cold-war world. The failure to comprehend the true role that capitalism should play within a democratic society has given license to modern predatory globalists to exploit capitalism as an economic philosophy for mass social repression and world conquest unifying quite well with Chinese communist repression of individual liberty. Neither corporatists nor communists need care about individual free enterprise and free expression; instead they care solely about reinforcing power for the elite organizational leadership they comprise, and mass material formulae for the worker-employees with kickbacks to shareholders/party members. It isn’t too late yet to subdue the wild meglomaniacal excesses of globalism and restore a political philosophy of self determination to American national interests. Globalists like to use extreme dialectical antinomies as straw men to knock down in order to defend their self-fated right to force everyone into a global corporatist political entity of planetary inertial stagnation; there are alternative methods of free trading national democratic social developments aplenty without extreme global oppression by either corporate imperial or communist subjugation. The philosopher Aristotle believed that people would develop their interests most carefully if they owned them for-themselves. Both communism and corporatism take away individual ownership through various networked means and reduce humanity to droll servo-units of the global hive.
Some may argue in support of the global corporatist state that it is a better way to reach out to the downtrodden second and third world people living in poverty than communism. That may be true and a valid premise for corporatist support if communism were the only alternative method of economic development in the second and third world, yet it is not. Democracy with a healthy petite capitalism and limited entry trans-national capitalism would better support local, national economic growth. Free trading small worlds networks able to synergize product development, production and sales without formal legal business unification may avoid the semi-monopolistic capitalization facts of interowned royal global corporatism.
When cold-blooded global corporatism invades to displace local political control at best allowing local politicians to be yes men and smoke blowers for a transnational upper class even local religious beliefs eventually are co-opted or dialectically radicalized by the amorality of globalist takeover creating a local radicalization in response that may foster support for national socialist political dictatorships in the emergent second and third world amidst polities mindful to avoid both communism and false non-Christian theocratic religious domination.
Global corporatist supporting politicians such as President George W. Bush may compel nations to disregard externalities such as environmental harm and global warming because of the traditional unaccountability of business for environmental damage without litigation. Even the NGTO CEO Osama Bin Ladin had the good sense to exploit the corporatist irresponsibility for global warming in a recent video. Al Qa’eda as a non-manufacturing terrorist organization of course contributes little to global warming except when creating mass environmental disasters such as the 9-11 World Trade Center pollutants more than compensating for their lack of smokestack industry ownership. Al Qa’eda has benefited in the past from contributions from Saudi oil wealthy individuals and hasn’t yet renounced fossil fuel as a major factor causing global warming. Non-governmental terrorist organizations (NGTO’s) such as Al Qa’eda are not the only present danger to individual and national economic and political security. Ad hoc global corporations co-opting national political self determination en passant with trans-national corporate existence able to afford purchase of national political leadership loyalty and purchase national and global broadcast media propaganda monopolies assault individual political opposition increasingly without legal accountability through a variety of wicked and ruthless means. Foreign governments may present as significant of a threat to individuals in the United States as Al Qa’eda, or more so; the BBC and NPR are as apt to subvert American individuals as the corporate broadcasters; the Department of Homeland security is effectively a Department of Corporate globalist security to conquer the American Democracy and annihilate American tradition and culture. The U.S. Government will not democratize the broadcast media to Internet podcast use by all citizens and take away a primary socializing tool of corporatist and state propaganda terror technology.
Mexican truckers enabled by pre-9-11 NAFTA provisions to drive throughout the United States will present an increasing and pervasive security threat to every niche of the United States. Bin Ladin must already be grooming truckers from Mexico on delta force quality force delivery package mission training. Foreign packaged trucks and containers with g.p.s.’ will be able to deposit materials anywhere in the U.S.A. for later use. If the Soviet KGB had been given such a fine method of equipment ingress the cold war might have been resolved the other way. It is likely that AL Qa’eda and other ad hoc terrorist organizations dedicated to the destruction of the U.S. democracy, the end of the reality of a working constitution of the United States and free enterprise sole proprietorships will utilize the NAFTA trucking sovereignty surrender avenue of approach to coordinate and deliver terrorist tools even unto Hannibal Missouri. Pioneer Americans recognized the Carthaginian’s comprehension that the way to destroy the Roman Empire was to go for the city of Rome itself, and he made that effort nearly successfully until stopped at Cannae.
Any global corporation will be free to set up shop and deliver to any place in the U.S.A. directly whatever contraband and articles of war it can get past the ineffective customs inspectors.
Cleverly packaged shipments of weapons of mass destruction such as nerve gas or tons of weaponized anthrax might be gotten through in just one truck container and delivered without middleman to anyplace deemed convenient by the personnel in favor of a reconstituted Sunni imperial preference for a Caliphate set Al Qa’eda for mass civilian casualties for tactical political-economic purposes. The NAFTA trans-border trucking provisions should be abrogated immediately, while the rest of the treaty may continue, if Mexico halts its mass waves of over-the-boundary line flood of illegal alien construction workers.
Usama Bin Ladin’s recent video highlighted the similarities Al Qa’eda George Bush and the British Government have in both oil, imperialism and preference for Sunni Royal power of some form in the Middle East. Usama’s misunderstanding of the problem with capitalism is not compensated for by his recognition of the danger of global warming, even unto the decimation of polar bear habitat. Usama’s feeling for the hard edges of capitalism has a Maoist spin, and one in error of course-the problem isn’t capitalism but is corporatist corruption of capitalism and democracy.
The crisis in capitalism today is in its wild, unmanaged power to subvert democracy and individual economic competition. Globalization of capitalism and the existence of large international investment funds work to create a monolithic and oppressive global ruling class without any ethical values respecting the foundation principles of western civilization in individualism, individual self-determination and political equality of citizens.
Globalists and their national globalist broadcast sycophants have an unreformed basic urge toward absolute greed for-itself and self-association with corrupt absolute power. Capital is given an absolute value by the globalists that is assumed to have some sort of magical merit for political organization and justice that might in some way be the most optimal course of economic development possible. That false belief and the sociological facts supporting the mass cattle-lie stampede in support of goal capital investments creates a juggernaut of power crushing individual free enterprise and democracy, self-determination and physical security beneath its unshod hooves in many instances. Adam Smith believed hat capital managed by individuals should be given license to guide itself with a criterion of national democratic government-not without. Real national interests cannot be placed as secondary to global capital without the erasure of political and real security of individuals within their own nations. Capitalism needs and era of reformation into a less volatile and life corrupting, over-the-border tool of destabilization if economic competition is to continue to exist, if individual invention is to be rewarded, if individual work and national security are to continue as meaningful, practical ways of life.
Osama Bin Ladin’s desire to repress all of the people of the globe within a Muhammedist oil imperialism is a rival to the innate imperial drive of global capitalist annihilating national security, individual liberty within nations, protection from corrupt global capitalized powers seeking to put a price on everything and have an ability to enslave the world through the raw power of the biggest piles of capital. Capitalism needs to be controlled by nations in order to allow democracy and citizenship to continue to meaningfully exist, the alternative likely development scenario are large global corporatist communes controlling all broadcast media, buying all national governments and repressions of individual expression and invention.
Like many oppressive dictators Osama seems to believe in the infallibility of wealth and power. Usama Bin Ladin’s desire that all the world kow tows to a Muhammadist pope uniting church and state seems more of a malevolent evil delusion than the most dark depths of the Catholic Spanish inquisition’s goals for world power-the papacy at that time implicitly recognized a pluralist political nationalism even before the recalcitrant Frederick the Elector had his falling out with the Vatican. Osama, perhaps like some oil-indebted corporatists seeks a global power through means that incongruously and curiously collaterally have an economic resonance with the economic goals of global oil corporations.
Terrorism on the United States through promiscuous Mexican truckers insinuating themselves into every nook and cranny of the U.S.A. directly from foreign trucking companies located in Mexico presents a clear and present danger to the security of the United States that the President and Congress should not overlook as usual because of the confidence of comfortable wealth and the obscurity of urgency to adapt quickly. Two of the top tier Republican candidates are terminally soft on illegal alien entry control and probably on the anachronistic trucking provision of NAFTA as well.
I support construction of mag-lev cargo tubes across the United States to move cargo to transcontinental terminals as 3000 miles per hour, yet that will never come about if foreign global corporations in effect take over American highways, and U.S. taxpayers must borrow money from China and India to fix that high infrastructure decade after decade as innovation stagnates, and American highways are dominated by global corporations, global fossil fuels, global vehicles and global political power with the people of the United states becoming a basic sort of curiosity and lint on the slipstream of the new globally controlled America. What congressional let that trucking forfeiture of sovereignty provision into the bill that far exceeds the concept of free trade without cross order tariffs? The people rely on their political representatives to actually read the details, and not to put in seditious corporatist measures such as the Mexican trucking subversion.

More importantly will the next President fail to comprehend the existential social characteristics of Middle Eastern politics in relation to the interests of the United States? The mirage of Muslim congress with any supposed collateral interests of the United States in the region is a changing sandstorm of power and resources juxtaposed with antipathetic sectarian interests as variable and volatile as would be any political interests predicated to stability within a corporatist macro-economic paradigm. The corporatists will seek to acquire the most resources for-themselves at the least cost and produce the most profit for-themselves. Regional political relationships 'established temporarily will be subverted as soon as outsourcing and comparative cost advantages indicate it useful to do so. Tying U.S. national security to middle-eastern oil may be lubricated with the excuse that it will keep terrorists from following the President or military forces 'home', yet perhaps the President might return to Dubai and consider the issue more fully until Christmas or such time as the drop of camel dung from some Penthouse stable provides the sudden illumination needed for enlightenment.
Iran and Iraq are interesting states for political study especially when considered from the paradigm of how the people of those nations relate to the United States, and of course the ancillary question is what power groups in each nation concerned would seek to pursue the good of the majority instead of the good of the narrow political ruling class. Iran has become a traditional political adversary and bete noir for the Washington D.C. insiders, who refuse to recognize the role that American support for the Shah and his terrorist secret police had in alienating elements of popular Iranian political opinion regarding the United States. Polyanishly American politicians have the idea overmuch that Americans can do no wrong and that Americans have some sort of inalienable moral supremacy rather allowing political policies of an infallible characteristic formerly associated with papal decision making. That popular delusion has at least one significant consequence of providing support for a blundering, blind drunken globalist submission to global corporatism as a sort of American super-economic state that will provide a better way of life for everyone everywhere as they destroy the world environment for corporatist profits. Blind U.S. submission to a hypothetical world-state of American led corporatism-socialism will continue to undermine national security for the United States as it is a raving, toady vassal state of corporatism. Maybe Hillary Clinton-former Wal-Mart board member of the no-union-shops Wal-Mart Corporation can persuade declining unionists that she is labor's best Democratic Party friend as it moves along with all Americans into parity with Chinese, Indian and Mexican workers.
Political Pollyannaism in Presidential candidates’ juggernucks sycophantically with global corporate draining of American economic health. American entry into a more globalist status will mean that the traditional self-destruction of nations historically will become a U.S. trait too, and that the fratricidal wars amongst nations and peoples demonstrated the last five millennium will now wave over the United States as it lets down its guard and becomes more concerned about cheap profits on foreign labor than on discovering new ways to educate and innovate national technical and environmental progress. As the U.S.A. loses detachment, intelligence, independence and strength its ability to dampen global chaos will disappear.
Instead of giving up on U.S. culture and identity and chasing after foreign investments like a camel wandering after a water supply all over the desert a second founding generation of Americans developing their own real estate and opportunities should be built. It is necessary to conceive a national policy that develops individual American inventiveness, independence and prosperity even as global corporations have an awesome, unpatriotic and subversive economic advantage. Can Americans develop a national identity like that of the British or Swiss-composite peoples but a people still and not completely revolving door internment camps for poor people mooned by corporatist overseers and media?
Iran's people probably could get along with many Americans, but the fossil fuel politics and corruption of power elites very likely will mean that belligerency as the preferred mode of international relations will prevail. American politicians seem to prefer middle-eastern royals with oil reserves and find no contradiction in a democratic nation preferring royalty abroad over populist revolutionaries. Such hypocrisy perhaps becomes noticed in time and people learn to distrust an empty rhetoric about democracy bloviated by global corporatist stuffed shirts.
Perhaps Israel is an American friend, yet everyone else in the Middle East may just be a temporary friend or foe of an existential and phenomenal kind.
Withdraw American forces from Iraq in January 2009 and perhaps no civil war or chaos would occur beyond the usual chaos and striving for resource power...maybe the Shia in Iraq and Iran will not fight each other, maybe Saudi Arabia and Iran won't either...maybe all the middle eastern governments will decide that terrorism isn't in their interests, and neither are wars...who can say? The next President needs to be one with experience suing global corporations to limit their predatory traits-a democracy must govern corporations instead of the opposite. The next President should share an intelligent preference for American domestic interests that simultaneously provides an example or model about how to do things right for hypothetical other second world and first world nations that need that sort of thing and believe that it could be found in the U.S.A.
