The America First Movement in America has emphasized nationalist and isolationist policies based on fear of engagement and fear of competition from international actors , but also because of fear of competition from domestic threats related to immigration, political opponents, public policy, private sector dominance or cultural issues, which get high jacked and demonized, in the name of national security, but are really just excuses by Nationalist/Isolationist leaders or political operatives to support their ideological preferences in molding and shaping America into its selfish images, demands, wants and needs without or as little Democratic processes involved as is possible. This last point is really the major point that I am making about America First Policy that has typically been propagated in America. America's highest calling or reason for being is to create a more perfect union, from we the people, all the 330 million people of the United States of America. E Pluribus Unum. Out of Many, ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the secret sauce that Makes America and Americans, AMERICA. A free people with the freedom to freely think and do what they want, think and believe. So How in the hell do you get 330 million people, "THE MANY", to agree and effectively become ONE?????????????????????????????
Love, Patriotic Love!!!!!!!!! Love is truly the miracle of the life process. Love is, it exists, but is not explained by the science. Love has the power to see and be aware of right and wrong and fully understand that it may be much much much much much much easier or even excessively much much much much more profitable to do wrong and even be able to get away with doing wrong, but still choose to do right because it is both the right thing to do and is the best thing to do for all parties involved. This type of action is what we call "Moral" or "God like".
Total and complete commitment on our own, not forced, but freely choosing to love and care for and treat all others in America the way that we would like others to love us, care for us and treat us is what I define as love or patriotic behavior toward fellow Americans. This is the secret sauce that allows American innovation, technology and government policy to work best for everyone in America and around the globe. Let's see how "REAL" America First Policy looks and works when America and Americans return to their First Love, the US Preamble, the holy document that defines what it means to be an American and how Americans should behave toward one another to demonstrate that we really are Americans.
The underlying problem in the US economy over the past 40 years and the reason that it is so expensive to live and do business in America is because the American economy is uneconomic, broken with non-self correct market failures which are destroying the US economy with the passage of time.
The economic backbone of the US economy was destroyed during the "Great Inflation" of the 1970's, making the US economy structurally uneconomic, too expensive for US consumers and too expensive for US businesses and corporate America. Instead of making the fundamental and structural changes to the US economy to make it economic and working best for everyone, conservative and financial interests in the US economy, during the early 1980s, won the political argument to financialize the US economy, rather than fixing the US economy and making it economic and working best for everyone. Since the Early 1980s, the US economy has effectively been transformed into a Consumption and Investment Ponzi Scheme, going deeper and deeper into debt each year to finance uneconomic growth in the US economy. Since the US economy was never repaired and made organically economic, each year the US economy becomes more expensive and more uneconomic requiring more catastrophic borrowing to pay for and grow an economy that is fundamentally uneconomic. Borrowing to pay for an economy that gets more uneconomic and more expensive with the passage of time, creates excessively massive almost unconceivable wealth for the top 10%, created not by the profits from the fundamentals of supply and demand in the transaction of goods and services in the real economy, but rather from the ability of the wealthiest top 10% to borrow from the government to financially bid up its own asset prices to level that create massive wealth for a very thin slice of the American population at the expense and destruction of the bottom 80%
So why do I bring that up. Because that is the fundamental problem in the US economy. The US economy was never fixed and made organically economic back in the early 1980s. The American Economy and hence American society is on course for permanent collapse unless we fix the world's Biggest Consumption and Investment Ponzi Scheme on the planet. Because America operates so catastrophically uneconomic every year to keep the Ponzi Scheme alive and running, the entire global economy is incentivized to behave this way if it wants to be funded and participate in the benefits of this global financial mad house. If you know anything about a Ponzi Scheme, you know the day of reckoning is coming, its not if, its when. We saw a mild stroke in the US and Global Economy during the Global Credit Crisis and Great Recession of 2007 - 2009. The mother of all financial strokes is developing over the next 3 - 5 years if the status quo persists over the next 3 - 5 years. So how does this all relate to a Truly American Style, America First Policy????????????????????????????????????????????
A truly American, America First Policy is about Love and being the parent in the room on the US national stage and it is about Love and being the parent in the room on the International Stage. Over the past 40 years, America has been the driver and source of the widest gap between the rich and the poor since US slavery. Why, because of the uneconomic financing of the largest uneconomic financial system on the planet., on course to destroy America and the Global Economy in the next 3 - 5 years if the status quo policies of the democrats and republicans continues on a going forward basis. America is the problem. If America takes care of the market failures in its economy "FIRST", that are driving uneconomic growth and uneconomic wealth creation in America and around the world, both America and the world will heal, repair and upgrade so that economic growth is organic, healthy, robust, affordable and sustainable, creating affordability and profits for all Americans and all transactions with the rest of the world. This is Truly Lovely, America First Leadership Policy, representative of what the idea of America is and what the reality of America and America First Policy truly is as defined in the Preamble to the Constitution of the United States of America.
An explicit and specific example of America First Economic Policy are actions that America can take right now, without any coordination or permission from international actors, to reduce US business input costs and US consumer purchasing costs by a factor or 3 or 4, meaning, the basic input cost to the US economy could immediately be reduced by a factor of 3 or 4 (divide grocery, gasoline, clothing, housing cost, etc,,, by 3 or 4) on a sustainable basis going forward, reducing US annual cost to consumers and businesses on an annual basis of between $2 - $5 Trillion per year. Over ten years that is a cost savings of $20 to $50 Trillion, more than easily paying for investments in climate change and other social and economic objectives needed to make the US economy work better for everyone in the economy, the rich, the middle class and the poor alike. This could be achieved immediately, right now, by redirecting strategic exports (oil, natural gas, agriculture, other strategic commodities) for much more efficient and much more productive use in the US domestic economy (AMERICA FIRST), rather than unnecessarily exporting these strategic resources, inflating commodity prices for the soul purposes of maximizing profits for corporations and large investors at the direct expense and financial destruction of the bottom 80%.
50 years ago, the absolute most vital input to the US economy, oil and natural gas supplies, during the 1970s increased by 1,000% over a 12 year period, literally destroying America's economic comparative advantages over that period. Catastrophically high Oil and Natural Gas prices has been over the past 40 years and continues to this day to be one of the main drivers of Economic Cancer in the US economy. Oil and natural gas (along with several other strategic US export commodities) can now be the healing balm in the US economy, to help correct market failures that will make the US economy organically economic on a going forward basis while also meeting the challenges of Climate Change because of the way that this truly American Brand of America First - National Economic Strategy and Policy - Hugs the Environment, Hugs America and Hugs the world. It's all good!!!! The Economic Gospel of the United States of America is Here!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now That is an America First Policy that we can all be proud of and love!!!!!!!!!! USA!!!!!!!! USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
