Thumbs up Our Nation Must Always Come First & Foremost

8-26-2022

(More Personal Opinions)

Far too much attention is being placed these days upon the welfare and advancement of other nations, all around the world, in my opinion?

Granted, allies are a good and wholesome thing, but for the record, we are not “The United States of the World”, but rather, we are “The United States of America”, and our needs, our welfare, our security, and the concerns for “Our Future” have got to come first and foremost! In short, we must continue to lead by example, and from the forefront, and not as just the private banking house or military muscle for the entire free world!

And of course, these are just my own personal opinion, but “Our Nation” was not founded, nor has it flourished over the past two-hundred and forty-six years, by being the “Daddy Warbucks” of the entire world community! And although we must remain a good, loyal and true friend to our allies, we are not a sucker, nor are we the private army of world whim and ambition! ‘For We Are the United States of America’ and not just some on-call (and easy) financial touch! Nor are “We the People” the military enforcers of this entire planet!

And so it is and so we must forever remain, if we are to continue to thrive as a free, independent, and quintessentially-mighty example of free-world liberty, justice -

“And Especially – Independence & Unmitigated Pride!”

HC - I agree - but the milk and honey isn't always
found in the United States.
-
There are resources that we need that "are not"
abundant or readily available in the United States.
-
Therefore - we go where the ingredients can be
found. This is where diplomatic negotiations are
made for resources that are needed.
-
And so it begin's - The International Trade Relations.
Of which we all know - is necessary to bring us
the raw materials we don't have.
-
In exchange we provide things they need. We can't
isolate ourselves from International issues.
-
We all know that.
-
This is why threats against us are always related to
world trade negotiations.
-
They have stuff they we need - and we have stuff
they need.
-
That way all parties can accomplish whatever they
are needing - and those other's who do have.
-
What ruined the world order was war weapons.
Materials for making bombs. The list grew and
grew - and then the material leverage came
into play.
-
Trade talks grew and grew - I've got what you
want and you want what we have. Tit for Tat!
What are you willing to pay for those items?
-
And so - The World Trade Organization came
into play. Leverage changed what was once
cheap or less expensive - now cost more to
increase their profits on needed items.
-
The key word today is Leverage! How bad
do you really need these materials?
-
If they know you really need it - how
much are you willing to pay for it?
-
It's always about Money & Profits.
-
Oil & Gas shortages are major players.
-
In the early - to mid 1950's I could buy
gas for 19 cents a gallon at a Ryan Gas
Station.
-
Today its called INFLATION as we all know
it. Hence $5+ for gas - it just keeps going up.
-
Labor issues kick in we don't make enough
money to buy groceries or pay the rent.
-
That's what its always about - MONEY
and PROFITS - and how much can I get
for it and how bad do you need it - from
the seller's to increase their profits.
-
They call it trade - but really its much uglier
than that! When War's start or Virus's hit -
suddently shortages increase - here's where
profits kick in once more - we see that today.
-
It's a fact Jack - we've seen it several times
in our past - and as we know it today.
Shortages and higher prices. Is where
Capitalism is at it's best!
