Ivan Eland — Hillary's Foreign Policy Is Scarier Than Trump's

Clinton’s biting attack on Trump got high marks from many in the media. Yet, ironically, Trump’s foreign policy views, if you think about it, are less scary, even in their implications for possible nuclear war, than Clinton’s belligerent interventionism—sold as “American world leadership.”…
Interesting subtext.
With a $19 trillion national debt, the United States can no longer afford such a policy.
A lot of people actually believe this.

Matt, I'm not quite there yet, at least not to my satisfaction. Take one off the count: so 1999.

The only good thing that can come out of this ignorance is peace breaking out because there's the illusion of no money. If confusion reigns, they can always call the Chicago and MIT boys in, who after much anguished deliberation may figure a way around this problem and triumphantly declare war.

idk John I have to trust the democratic process IF mankind has the knowledge and truth...

I am a big advocate for "team human" ... but that team is currently mis-led...

Matt, I agree totally if they have the truth about everything, not just the monetary system. I like the term "team human", and I trust people completely when they are not subject to maniacal propaganda.

If you want to see propaganda rivalling Iraqi WMD, take a look over at our EU referendum campaign! The only things absent from this democratic process is knowledge and truth!
