I mean I don't NOT see where you're coming from. I just kind of disagree. What do you think about globalization, do you think it's inevitable?

I don't agree with him, but globalization is not inevitable. It only seems that way because we elect politicians bribed by companies to keep it that way. There's no force of nature keeping us from scrapping our trade deals for more favorable ones. Especially in the US. We have the people and resources to be as s3pf reliant as we need to be.

I'm not sure I understand the question... do I think that globalization is inevitable? We're pretty much globalized NOW, don't you think? Or maybe you're using the word in a different context. Can you elaborate a little on what you mean?

Personally, I wish we'd jack the import tax rate UP, decrease the corporate tax rate, bring US companies & manufacturing BACK to the US, and stop giving money to countries that fucking hate us. You really think Saudi Arabia are our allies? Sadly, they aren't. On paper, they play the part well, but they support terrorism behind closed doors, and even openly in some cases, then blatantly lie about it.

INTERNALIZATION... I'd like to see a lot more of that. Not 100%, don't misunderstand, but enough to where everyone in this country that WANTS to work, can. Right now, that's not the case. 94 million people out of work??? That's pathetic, for a world power like us.

There's a lot more to the "MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN" slogan touted by Trump than people think.

I was alive during the good times. I've seen what we're capable of. I've been here. My family is a success, rags to riches story. I'm PROOF that this country can create great people and great things (not saying I'm great or anything, but hopefully you catch my drift).

Sorry for the little rant... done now!

I suppose what I meant by that was more about how building literal walls around us isolates us further. I'm not really sure, I don't think it's inevitable, to be honest I haven't don't a huge amount of reading on it. I just don't see how the further isolation and tension would benefit foreign relations. You made a lot of really great points. I saw something the other day that kind of struck me, it was about how everyone talks about how dems make promises that can't be followers through on or how they just want to give give give but Trump promises to 'make America great again' by creating jobs? How? I think that the states have continued to develop and have had their moments but have pretty much always had some shortcoming, whether that be economic or moral.
