The US has been declining since the 1970s under both parties and their presidents. The decline has been steeper during period of democrat controlled congress or presidency for the most part.
President GW Bush didn't do the country any favor getting us involved in another war. I suspect it was to satisfy GH Bush in closing Iraq. It was not a wise choice for either Bush to involve us in Iraq.
President Barack Obama made the country even weaker during its effort to try and revive the dead economy. Instead of focusing on the economy, Obama spent his first two years in office making a bigger mess out of healthcare. Those two years were totally controlled by the democrats. But they were wasted by Obama.
Now, Hillary Clinton say that her first priority in the presidency would be Amnesty. This is another democrat diversion away from critical issues.
Clearly, National Security should be the prime objective of any president in 2017. The economy today is even more fragile than it was in 2008 because their is no cushion to bounce back with and try to counter act a severe down in the economy.
The $1.5 trillion dollars spent by two presidents and two congresses was a failure in not only reviving the economy, but it left the same industries in control of the economy and the government is powerless.
Clinton was to continue to give China the economic edge, and for the US global companies to continue sending jobs overseas, and avoiding US Taxes.
For a long time now the US has been without their major industries of the 1950s. That was also a time when there was a real US Middle Class.
Both our gone today, and the US is feeding of itself, as it has become a service industry. The most profitable areas are data and social infusion by marketing and advertising.
Google, Facebook, Twitter, and the other social service industry companies are not real industry. They are just methods of sales and marketing. Microsoft with Windows 10 is now going to go into that market. The operating system will now be a giant marketing spy.
So where is the industry and the middle class jobs? Hillary Clinton as president won't be bringing them back.
By choosing Amnesty over the economy, national security, and stopping our proclivity for war, she has chosen to focus on her and the democrats voting base, illegal aliens, minorities including Muslim radicals. She doesn't seem concerned about American Citizens that are still losing their homes, have not been able to find work after 2008
