    The threat of this event should wake us up: WWIII.

    "America's most powerful weapon has always been our economy. It allowed us to gear up and successfully wage WWI and WWII. We cannot allow our economy to become stagnant and weak, while China and Russia are growing theirs, (economies and especially their militaries.)

    I am not as optimistic about an outcome of a major war. I don't believe there is likely to be WW type engagement, but more "proxy wars" and low intensity conflicts." by Carey Mitchell on HubPages.

    Haven't these types of conflicts already begun in the democrat-run cities where the leaders allow fighting for the sake of tear-it-all-down anarchy? Is it war, but don't realize it?

    Who is funding the looters and rioters, who reportedly come from out of town?

    That a Trump supporter was shot and killed in Portland is beyond tragic.

    "Biden issued a statement Sunday, saying “we must not become a country that accepts the killing of fellow Americans who do not agree with you.”

    He should direct that comment at the BLM-Antifa ghouls celebrating the Portland murder victim’s death.

    “What does President Trump think will happen when he continues to insist on fanning the flames of hate and division in our society and using the politics of fear to whip up his supporters,” said Biden.

    But it is not Trump who has been inciting violent riots and disempowering police, it is Democrats.

    As polls in June showed Biden was picking up the support of young people amid anti-police protests, Sen. Kamala Harris, whom he later selected as his running mate, was gleeful when she told “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert that protesters “are not going to stop before Election Day … and they should not.” New York Post, Miranda Divine, 8/30/20.

    It sounds like war to me. The last thing we need to do is lock down the nation, as Biden has declared we should do, which he said he will do,
    if elected ... yikes!!!

    Why Joe Biden’s tax plan will bring on a more sluggish US economy

    Where are the Biden supporters, I am still wondering. Those who don't mind higher taxes and the redistribution of wealth.
    ... and who are happy to pitch in for the benefit of all.
    I hear them deny that Bernie is behind the implementation of a beautiful progressive dream. Or that it is, in all actuality, socialism.

    As Elizabeth Warren so clearly proclaimed, the top $ earners of America will pay for everything that the bottom wage-earners/non wage-earners need.
    So that's college for one thing,
    What else?

    Fossil fuels will not be used, so that's electric bikes and cars only?
    No more fracking, no more oil production, wind power, instead?

    What else?

      You are definitely right about a robust economy. It's definitely a shame that President Trump took what President Obama gave him and drove it into the ground by ignoring the threat of COVID. And now, with masks predicted to save hundreds of thousands of lives if we just all wear them in risky situations, he's belittling Biden for wearing one. As a result, we'll see hundreds of thousands of more dead from this and even more damage to the Obama economy. What a shame.

        Providing evidence is a good way to convince people to believe what one proclaims.

    What about the Green New Deal? What are its benefits to the economy?
    to people? to the environment?

    Is economy less important than the environment?
    Or is this intersection where we need balance?

      "Real" Donald Trump is on course to get the USA economy up and running.                                                                      Agreed that the USA economy fund the WW 2 by leading money to Great Britain and her friends. Her economy, like any other the world over touch by the pandemic will recover.                                                 The pandemic is worst than a military invasion. If either Bush jr or Obama were here right in Trump's shoes, how these personalities will handle both the pandemic and the economy is unpredictable.

        True.

    The worst thing that could happen is that our economy becomes weak. Then, we will be open to outside threats. Threats like from China.

    What I don't get is why Biden and his son took huge amounts of government money from China. That alone should make him un. fit. to be president.
     
    People really need to see reality from the level of TRUTH, rather than from the level of emotionality / hatred for the Don.

      I agree. And it has already become weak. Donald Trump's ignorance has resulted in the destruction of the robust economy created by Obama. Now, we're faced with massive unemployment and the prospect of massive job loss.

      Further, the United States has become the laughing stock of the world. Leaders and people around the world see Trump bending over for Vladimir Putin, wondering how a once proud nation could follow such a buffoon.

        ... and you have seen them laughing hysterically?

        And you've been agreeing all the time...                                         While America love freedom, don't you think if Trump imposed complete lockdown on every state where the pandemic striked, as China did, he may be likely infringed on the freedom of the states.                                           President Trump is not authoritarian as China. Whom did he put first? America! America First? Agreed?                                                               Biden has put himself and China first. What's going on between Trump and Putin or Russia is not fully developed. It's just an iceberg.                                                     D'you  think Potus is the only actor in America history dealing with China? Late Ronald Reagan? What's resulted? Cultivate foresight.

      The USA has a basic principle for developing and maintaining the growth of its economy.                                          Right from the day of independence, America promised herself not to take any foreign money.                                        Biden taking money from China is a clear sign America is about to be sold out as a second hand materia!

        yes. freedom.

          However, we need to understand:

          Two sides of the same coin: freedom and boundaries.

          1. Kathryn L Hill profile image80
            Kathryn L Hillposted 10 months agoin reply to this

            Boundary-setting, (in the form of laws and legal requirements,) is subtle and needs to be done for the sake of providing freedom. For instance, over-regulating and over-taxing are both inappropriate, while, on the other hand, laws against monopolies are appropriate.

          Yes, that's what the early fathers' prized above all else.                                                      And this freedom, is entrenced in the American Constitution.                                          It make and kept the  American economy strong for over 200 years.                                                        Biden, can't make a right use of his head again.
