October 27, 2016 - During this election cycle, no doubt you've heard
the term 'globalism' tossed about here and there in the news.
If you are unsure what it is, the picture to the right of this article spells
it out. Closed factories, boarded up buildings where once people
were employed stand all across the United States as a visual image
of the effects of globalism. In those buildings, hundreds of thousands
of Americans once worked, feeding their families, sending kids to
ollege, buying houses, husbands and wives dreaming of their future
together because they had sound employment.
Since the 1990's Progressive-Globalism has made its way into
both of the major parties - the Democrats and Republicans - and has
led to the devastation of the manufacturing sector. When Bill Clinton
announced in the 1990's that 'we will transition from a manufacturing
economy to a service economy', it was not a good thing. No one
really understood what the future held. But the effects are real.
Today 'Mellinials' often go to college, then come into the world
where nothing is available that fits their degree. Instead they end up
working for $8.50 and hour at a non-profit, hoping for an opportunity
to move on with their lives. Americans looking ahead at retirement do
so with concern because the economy, while touted by news pundits
as great, is not functioning so well for the average American.
To understand Globalism, you must first understand 'political code', a manner of speaking in which words have a profound meaning while being vague about their meaning. For instance, in the 1980's and 1990;s the term 'Ethnic Cleansing' was tossed about when describing events taking place around the world. Ethnic Cleansing was code for exactly what is taking place today - radical islam saying "Convert or Die!". Ethnic Cleansing was taking place in far away places like Sudan, Darfur and other areas including some European nations, but today, it is a global scourge.
When it comes to Globalism, code is used to cover its true meaning. Words and phrases like 'free market' and 'free trade', along with terms like 'amnesty' and 'immigration reform'. The actual meaning is to create nations without borders, unions of nations whose laws will supercede the constitution of member countries and open movement and storage of money and monetary assets. The elite thrive in such an environment and typically force riches to the top while those suckered into buying into their globalist ideology suffer poverty and hardship. 
The economy is a big topic in the current election cycle. Hillary Clinton is a devout globalist who has been front and center in the move toward globalism. The agenda of Clinton and her crony's is power and establishing their place in the pecking order of the global 'governance' that is sure to come.
Meanwhile Donald Trump and Mike Pence are stumping on a brand of 'Americana' that has not been seen in decades. It is a vision of putting America First in order to Make America Great Again by re-building our manufacturing sector. The Trump-Pence ticket takes into account the devastation caused by lucrative trade deals made by globalists that line their own pocket at the expense of the American citizen.
In two years we will have congressional candidates running for office. A question to ask, for now and then, is 'Is this person a Nationalist or a Globalist?' The answer, as we know now, can have an effect on the future of America for decades to come.
