9 Things America Must Change to Turn the Country Around

ANd Why we cannot afford Status Quo, Business as Usual Neocon like Hillary

America is facing many problems, leading to a downward spiral towards economic collapse and colonialism (foreign control). Most Americans are oblivious of the facts, but need to know them if we are ever to recover as a nation. Here are just nine problems America is currently facing. Be warned—this list may shock you!

Currently, we are being controlled and directed – told what to do – by other nations, for their benefit and to our detriment. Our current direction in so-called “free trade” is not just hurting us – it is destroying us. One look at our current condition and present direction will clearly show we are in a mode of self destruction. When will we wake up to the realization that some of the agreements we have signed, most specifically NAFTA, the KORUS FTA and our agreement with the WTO, are preventing us from doing what is in our best interest?

States fight each other to the benefit of foreign companies. We give foreign-owned companies subsidies to insource their production in the United States. These foreign-owned factories provide very few American jobs in relation to their output since nothing is produced in these factories – they are merely assembly facilities that put together imported foreign parts whose total cost winds up being much less to produce. We are shooting our own American-owned auto facilities in the foot for a few menial jobs in foreign-owned car plants. American subsidies give foreign car companies an even greater advantage against our few remaining companies.

Thanks to NAFTA many of our other trading partners have relocated facilities to Mexico to circumvent other trade agreements with the U.S.
