ECONOMICS, FOREIGN POLICY AND NATIONAL SECURITY
My basic platform is: ECONOMIC SOVEREIGNTY FOR NATIONAL ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND STOPPING THE ENDLESS WARS ON BEHALF OF GLOBALIZATION.
The three themes of economics, foreign policy, and national security are intrinsically connected. The endless wars are there to force nations to accept a London based globalized dollar on which the exploitative profits of international corporations and international finance are based. These profits are based on what is called “free trade.” “Free trade” means outsourcing our manufacturing and forcing nations to produce goods below the cost of maintaining their populations. In return these nations cannot import from us the capital goods they need to develop. This creates trade imbalances where currently the U.S. is experiencing a one trillion dollar per year trade deficit. This is also why our nation has become a post-industrial consumer society, experiencing declining infrastructure and a declining quality of life, rather than a producer society where there would be no homeless, and where one wage earner would be able to support a family.
Had the United States after WWII, fully respected the economic and national sovereignty of nations, our economy would be ten times what it is now because we would have used our economic power after WWII to develop the world with “fair trade,” instead of becoming the military enforcer for the “free trade” empire of a transnational billionaire elite.
All empires collapse. We can only survive if we give up being an empire. That is why my domestic policy is to make the U.S. economically sovereign and productive, my foreign policy is to respect the economic and political sovereignty of all nations, and my national security policy is to defend the U.S. against all enemies foreign and domestic, which includes the globalists.
In order to transition from a collapsing empire to a healthy and vibrant productive nation it is required that we change the rules of our domestic banking system to both break the power of the globalists and promote the economic development of our nation.
First, and foremost, we must return to the rules we had under the Glass-Steagall Act, which was repealed in 1999, which prevented the use of deposits in commercial banks for speculation. The “firewall” between commercial banking and investment banking must be reestablished.
Second, all the banks that are currently bankrupt and exist only because they are on Federal Reserve life support, must be put through bankruptcy reorganization. This will end the continuing bailouts and the inflationary debasement of our currency.
Third, the equivalent of a national bank must be established to provide credit for the internal development of the nation. This could be done by nationalizing the Federal Reserve and shifting its bail-out central bank functions to providing credit to building up the physical economy. This was done by Lincoln with Greenbacks, FDR with the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, and proposed by JFK before his death with the establishment of a Third National Bank.
Fourth, areas of advanced technology such as a fusion energy development and space exploration should be the kind of areas for the national bank to invest in. A national bank could much better finance the technological “leap-frog” to a higher economic platform needed to escape the long term physical economic attrition caused by many decades of economic neglect and obsolescence.
Upon entering Congress, on my first day, I will be introducing legislation to do exactly this.
