Force, safety, Trump and foreign policy

My position has been distilling for some time. The more we see the more reason to question current circumstances.

Our policies have been a hodgepodge of standard and all too predictable positions. A left over from all the so-called experts and interests that gave birth to it. ‘That’s just the way it is,’ rings the answer to any questions raised. The current policies have not been working.

Obama has taken an ideologue approach, on top of it, That really has no parallel. Both at home and abroad, he’s had a witch’s brew of tonics for whatever the ailment. Snake oil.

Now this will break even English rules… Because we have been in this holding pattern for so long — cruizing between bad medicine and bad results — isn’t it about time to land the plane and actually do something to make a difference in our situation? But those actions could ruffle some feathers abroad with friends, allies and enemies. So be it. Those actions may also ruffle some feathers here at home. Well, that’s okay too.

For too long our policies have been driven by all kinds of motives. It’s time we get past that. If this brings in an era of unpredictability, then that is not such a bad thing. If some want to accuse us or question our motives and actions, so be it. They already do now.

Foreign policy cannot be our only consideration, nor at this point can domestic policy be our only consideration. They are not mutually exclusive either. It may not be a zero sum game, but there are collateral effects on each. However, there are some common denominators to domestic and foreign policies. One is economics.

In a lengthy interview with NYT, Trump said:

“I’m a person that – you notice I talk about economics quite a bit, in these military situations, because it is about economics, because we don’t have money anymore because we’ve been taking care of so many people in so many different forms that we don’t have money.”

Finally, the E-word is dropped. Sure we could ignore economic effects, but that doesn’t mean there are none. It is time to give economic concerns some weight and attention.

This is going to have to be a parted out subject

    Without an economy that works and one that is bringing our GDP up we have no national security.

    For a long time, we’ve had a bad economy under Obama. We have no money to build up our military. This is so bad. We need to go back to a strong military and fighting a war like Patton would have to beat ISIS.

    Obama has been running a war on PC and with that there is not way to win. Nor is placating them any way to win. This has to change and I want to see brute force.

    Obama needs to be stopped and we have a Repuke majority in Congress who obviously have no interest in stopping him. The whole Congress is a sham.
