The Ruling Class Redefines Character for Donald Trump
- South Vietnam was a corrupt supposed democratic nation essentially created out of whole cloth by the elites in the West. When North Vietnam began to militarily reunite the two nations, the men of refinement and good manners in the United States decided to intervene. From 1965-1973 there were over 155,000 American casualties (58,000 deaths) as well as 360,000 Vietnamese civilian deaths. The financial cost: $4.0 Trillion (2018 dollars). Nonetheless, the North Vietnamese won. Further, this debacle unleashed not only riots and protests but mainstreamed and legitimized the radical American Left allowing them to aggressively infiltrate the entertainment, media and education establishments.
- The war in Afghanistan began as a response to September 11, 2001; however, it and the invasion of Iraq quickly metastasized into a determination to impose democracy on two populations with no history, desire or understanding of democracy. Those wars (Iraq-- 7 years and Afghanistan--17 years) have to date resulted in 57,000 American casualties (7,000 deaths) and cost $6.0 Trillion. Further, civilian deaths exceed 300,000. The primary accomplishment of this naivete is a more destabilized region, which created ISIS, emboldened Iran and fomented a civil war in Syria.
- The overall national debt (including state, federal and local) in 1960 was $3.0 Trillion (2018 dollars) today it is $27.1 Trillion, a nearly tenfold increase in less than sixty years. That makes the United States, with 5% of the world’s population, the largest debtor nation in history, currently accounting for 30% of all global national debt. The wars in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan account for $10 Trillion (or 42%) of the growth in the overall national debt. The balance is reflective of the incessant march toward evolving into Euro-socialist and potentially bankrupt nation.
