Many are still confused about who to vote for in the upcoming presidential election. If you only look at personalities, you could easily think there’s not much of a choice. Or you may be drawn to one person or another based on personality alone. But this election is not about personalities. At the root, this election comes down to nationalism vs globalism.
Do you want to have a sovereign America? Or do you want to be ruled by the UN (one world government)? One candidate is for a sovereign America with borders and a clear system for lawful immigration. The other is not. No matter how you feel about their personalities, this is really the root of the decision.
What Is Globalism?
Globalism is working toward a one world order with one over-arching government that rules over individual nations. Eventually, globalism leads to each person being a citizen of the world, instead of citizens of their individual nations. The founders of the United Nations envisioned one world government. Member nations are obligated to the UN and to each other. The laws and regulations imposed by the UN override the laws of individual countries.
You may be saying, “So what? Why does this matter?”
I will take just a moment to explain why this most definitely matters. Anything is managed best at the most local level. Think of homes. They’re managed best when the parents are involved and responsible. Your neighbor will not love and raise your children as well as you will.
A classroom is managed best by the teacher because a good teacher knows his or her children and how they learn. A county is managed best by local people who live there, own property, care most about the area, and have friends there.
The higher up you go, the more poorly things are managed. We see this rampant mismanagement and lack of true caring for constituents on a federal level. Seriously, how concerned is the average congressman about your paycheck? My parents’ retirement? Your child’s creative skills?
Take that to a global level. How much do you think Korea is going to care about people in Kansas? How well can our country be governed by a global group who would gladly sell out our country, you, or me for money and power? It’s in the interest of each nation to govern itself.
The majority of the world is NOT free. Do we want them governing our nation? Policing our streets? Creating curriculum for our children and grandchildren?
Nationalism Vs. Isolationism
Many people confuse nationalism with isolationism. Proponents of globalism accuse those who want borders and national sovereignty of being naive at best and xenophobic at worst. Their argument is that we live in a global society with global trade and travel. They accuse nationalists of being backward and old-fashioned. Proponents of globalism often like to say that nationalists are isolationists. But this simply, is not true.
Nationalists are not isolationists nor are we against world trade or travel. Nationalists, like Trump, are not suggesting that we not trade with or be a part of the world. In fact, an important qualification Trump possesses is his experience negotiating with people all over the world.
There is a BIG difference between amicably trading with the world and allowing the UN to set rules and laws for our citizens. There is a major difference between trading globally and letting global laws have a higher say than our own Constitution.
Obama has already made his parting speech at the UN by saying we need to give up some of our freedoms to allow for world government. Hillary Clinton is just Obama part 2.
Nationalists say, “America first for Americans. Britain first for the British. France first for French, etc.” Each country must take care of its own and come to a trade table looking out for the interests of the people they represent. What good is a legal counsel during a negotiation who has no vested interest in his client?
Also, what good is an entangled negotiator who doesn’t have the ability to easily walk away from the table? The UN entangles us in foreign wars and obligates our military to police other countries. The UN appropriates our dollars to other nations — away from solving our own internal problems. There’s no way for a country to easily walk away from a UN negotiation table.
When the people are no longer represented with integrity, and our leaders are entangled in alliances that take precedence over our own people’s needs, tyranny is inevitable.
