Disconnecting From Europe – Part 1
For many years, the U.S. has provided benefits to other countries to the disadvantage of its own workers and taxpayers. In this episode, Dan Sullivan and Mark Young explain how President Trump is changing that, and why there are those who hate him for it. Becomes corrupt: Any one party ruling over a long period of time will naturally become corrupt. Biggest cities: Most of the biggest cities in the U.S. have been ruled for a long time by the Democrats. Constitutional president: President Trump has, in essence, been the most constitutional president in at least 75 years. Finished rebuilding: President Trump has called an end to the rebuilding process, the purpose of which ended a long time ago. Philosophically socialist: Europeans like the benefits of capitalism, but are philosophically for socialism. Holding onto feudalism: Socialism is an attempt in an industrial age to hold onto feudalism. Operating system: The U.S. doesn’t have much philosophy; it has an operating system. Governing government: The constitution is an operating system to govern the government. Open trade routes: For 75 years, the U.S. has kept trade routes open worldwide and guaranteed energy supplies, all to the disadvantage of American workers and taxpayers. Top Navy: In order to have the number one currency, you have to have the top Navy in the world, because you have to be able to guarantee trade routes. Protects routes: The Navy protects world trade routes more than any other single entity. Fictional gold: There isn’t enough gold on the planet to back up currencies. Under Manhattan: Most of the world’s gold reserves are under Manhattan. Only currency: Ever since the U.S. dollar was disconnected from the gold reserves in 1971, the U.S. dollar is the only reserve of value on the planet, and the only currency on the planet for transactional purposes. Significantly lower: For all practical purposes, the cost of energy in the U.S. will generally be significantly lower than in any other country. Mineral rights: The U.S. is the only country where if you own land, you also own the mineral rights underneath it. Left hatred: Around the world, the left is anti-capitalism and hatred of the out of control growth of the U.S. as an economy. Paid for: The entire left needs to be paid for because they don’t create any value on their own.
