Letter to the editor: A plan for Democrats
President Trump’s planning isn’t all wrong, and if Hillary won the 2016 big roll of the dice, maybe Dems would be cheering her on for doing some of the same things. The plan to increase border security, beef up the nuke arsenal and reduce the scale of a standing army could be the best hope for greater world peace.
It’s also about less globalized intercession, which is great for setting up the next military invasion or internal insurrection. Isolationism is the better way to less boots on the ground. Too, it is to focus on the U.S. economy and to better serve those, here, who are distressed and in need.
Suppose Dems ‘fess up this is a viable, maybe beneficial, strategy, and adopt it, with their grudging thanks. The Dems haven’t come forward with any long-term strategy, only the short-term one of keeping up allegations, e.g racism, gender bias, fascism and sex crimes.
Just me warbling at home, but I think the U.S. morphed into an oppressive corporate oligarchy long before 2016. The Dems can continue with their humanitarian agendas. It’s not mutually exclusive.
Globalism isn’t working so great, and the Dems haven’t offered much to correct it. Maybe they can win in 2020 by fessing up and making some changes. They want a Democrat in the White House. This might be the ticket.
