    Sounds like pickle-jar-conspiracy Infowar nonsense.

    No matter the results of the American election, Hillary Clinton will be an illegitimate president. She is a treasonous internationalist and all patriotic Americans have a duty to resist her neoliberal globalist agenda.

    How does one resist it?

    By any means necessary.

    Attend your local town hall council meetings, write letters to the editor, run for local office, ensure that your elected representatives know how you feel.

    Are you willing to end up on that pile of DNC staffers?

    Those who cast the votes decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.

    Yeah, except now in the USA we have almost completely severed governance from election results.

    Those who finance re-elections have offices in K street and sector experts who write the laws.

    Want to change something besides campaign finance while we wait for Citizens United to get another look?

    Nothing to it. Just take a double major in poli sci and... organic chemistry or engineering, say... then go to law school and then get an internship in the office of a Congressman who serves on a House Appropriations subcommittee.

    In no time at all you'll be writing the next laws on who exactly can make generic drugs happen out of patented ones, and who can build a bridge across an international waterway when the owner of the original bridge is some dolt who also owns a piece of paper signed by two countries saying his is the one, the only True Bridge.

    Or if you're short of time, and in the foreseeable future, you could just become the CEO of some company and then have it buy the congressmen you need.

    :D I hate it when I get all cynical but sometimes PRSI does that to me...

    One side is dependent on the other. It's about producers vs non-producers. One more economic bubble crash and the system will be done. The producers simply stop producing and wait, the system fails and the non-producers run around looking for someone else's money to spend.

    I'm a producer and if I stop producing I don't eat.

    I'm a producer and have lived years without income. It's called savings. Non-producers don't save. 70% of the US economy is consumption, 75% of those consumers are paycheck to paycheck. The vast majority of people are 2 paychecks away from being homeless.

    Some say that's what happened with the housing bubble. The people living paycheck to paycheck lost their homes and the investors came in and bought them cheap, now the prices are back up.

    This is the old tool we learned in management school. When a union contract is about to come up for renewal, you stockpile the goods, the union strikes, you live off the stockpile until the workers go broke and give in.

    Stockpile 2 months of supply, stop buying and watch the system crash. It can be done with stocks, homes, food, anything. Fools live paycheck to paycheck.

    Actually the producers keep producing, but they stop spending on non-essentials which is a drag on the economy as well.

    Exactly. It's the same basic effect. Same effect as starting or moving businesses to other countries and replacing people with robots.

    The problem the Dems don't see with their "equality of outcome" is that the non-producers of the US will become equal to the non-producers of 3rd world nations.

    This is one of the flaws in the globalization movement. The poor people in the US are actually rich compared to the people in 3rd world nations. So they vote for the producers to make everyone the same, they end up being the same as the people in 3rd world nations. The gov goes deeper in debt while trying to provide homes and food for those that don't think they have to work for what they get.

    The producers only have to wait for it to fall, then come back when it's safe, if it ever is.

    Just like Detroit and Baltimore, go after the producers and see what happens.

    What's wrong with internationalism? Isolationism is a dead end.

    Ask her about NSPD51, or even REX84, and sees if she plays the popular game called "loose association". But Democrats didn't write in those executive orders so she wouldn't be able to pout too much if he had?

    Isolationism isn't a dead end. Monks have been doing it for centuries. And we've never tried isolationism. Let's give it a shot.

    Isolationism is not the opposite of internationalism.

    depends on how broadly, or how narrowly you define your concepts.

    but, let's just say that your bugbears aren't mine. And perhaps vice versa.
