There is little difference between the establishment crowd in either of America’s two ruling political parties. More often than not the John McCains and Diane Feinsteins of the world will agree on a course for America that benefits their corporate donors over the people they were elected to represent.
With the backing of a crooked media that has enabled such establishment leaders to drown out the voices of any opposition, the elite politicians and their allies in the big think tanks and lobbying firms have pushed a system of globalized trade and migration flows on the American people that they never asked for.
At one point in history the loft-dwelling pseudo-liberals of America’s college campuses and affluent neighborhoods could be counted on to support the more conservative blue-collar workers who, though culturally more conservative, relied on some basic protections to defend against abusive trade practices by other nations. That cooperation has ended however as the globalist crowd has captured the Democrat leadership. If you are unconvinced of this capture, quickly reread some of the articles online about the DNC fixing the 2016 Democrat primary for Hillary Clinton over Bernie Sanders.
The only defense against abuses by globalists is a return to nationalism. That doesn’t mean fascism, or even incoherent protectionism. That means putting America’s people, and values ahead of those of other nations’.
So are you a Globalist, or a Nationalist? Here’s a quick checklist to help you decide where you fall on the spectrum.
- Fair trade
- Protected borders
- States’ Rights
- War only in self-defense
- Individual rights, including to self-defense
- Forced multiculturalism and diversity
- International law over local
- International intervention and regime change
- Big central governments
- An unarmed populace
