Politically Boozled

Here we are Tuesday, November 8 in this not so fabulous 2016 US election year. In a few hours we will know who will be the next president of the United States of America and unlike many other blogs or even news sites I will not warn of any consequences as none of the potential nominees will soothe the public in the long run.
Trump really surprised me how far he made it because looking at the statistics of past years the US public is leaning more Democrat each year thus I said to myself he won’t go far. After all, how can a clown like that go far anywhere? I guess in the US he can since that’s how much of those types live there so he’s got the following enabling him.
As for Hillary Clinton I can’t even imagine this women in office and yet there she is having a chance at being president. Thanks to whom? The left, the type that can’t be bothered to make things better, ever. It is a pity that if she wins it is going to be a women with the ugliest and most obscure baggage. You know how many kind Republican women I would have liked as US president before Hillary? A lot! You know how many Democrat ladies I would have seen president? A lot! Hillary Clinton was not supposed to have this honor and here again the other half of the US just showed that generally the US public is not ready for true change let alone trying. The left is truly a bunch of pussycats.
Personally Bernie Sanders was my choice but I am not delusional thus I know he wouldn’t have made much difference once in power. Bernie is from Vermont and since my wife’s relatives are mostly from there I had a special interest to vouch for Bernie but also because for over twenty years I have been hearing Bernie’s name in a good way so I believe that at the very least for the next four years he would have given the US some dignity, unlike with the two future potential candidates.
But at the end concerning jobs or the economy the U.S will not improve above this present “rate” and Trump, Hillary or dreaming of Bernie all would fail the public in this regard. Yes, I am implying none would make a difference trying in bringing back jobs at any acceptable rate above present rate because it is simply unfeasible. All the US can dream of is keep the present slow but decent growth rate – the U.S.A has become an ordinary world citizen with heavy bills to pay.
The reason for this is that the U.S face a “growing” competition on the international level and has been so for decades already and there is absolutely nothing one can do, no president can revert it, not me, not you, no personality and especially no clowns can do it either.
Are you blaming China for doing what’s best for themselves? Are you blaming Germany for their strong comeback? Are you blaming Israel, China or Russia for taking away U.S military deals? You think South Korean companies aren’t big or do not have enough shares internationally to make any differences against US interest? You do not think Brazil isn’t trying to become the U.S.A of the south and all that implicates? You think South Africa does not undermine some sector of the U.S manufacturing? You think Italy does not bug U.S aluminum foundries and many other sectors? Meanwhile next to the U.S border Mexico can build for cheap. I bet you think puny Australia does not undermine any U.S sector right? Or even better you think a country like Cuba does not produce much of anything right?
Well, a bit here and a lot there the share of the pie that other countries take on the world market is massive compared to just 20 years ago and it is never going to revert so the U.S public should get over it and find a new way to amass jobs. Even if the U.S becomes against globalization and do isolate it is not as if it did this back in the 1650’s where one could actually cope. Nowadays you won’t be able to last long as primary products are needed and unless you get those primary elements by force no one will ship it to you for free, thus obliged to interact a lot with other countries and sign treaties too. No one can do it alone and it is the reason China had to open up over the years and will continue to do so prudently and intelligently. Thus the U.S or anyone else it is either openness or restrict yourself.
At the end, Clinton (I hope not) or Trump the clown, both do not merit their places and the only people responsible for this situation is the U.S public.
