Millennials Have to Support Trump For Their Financial Future

It is critical millennials support President Donald Trump. Ending free trade will be the only way they will have a real financial future. Free trade with China and other low wage nations has decimated the middle class here in the United States. Millennials do not realize their financial future depends on ending free trade.

While browsing YouTube I came across a video of two young men arguing back and forth about Trump.

One young man asked how is trump going to make America great again.

It was at that point I realized he had slept through American history classes in school. There was once a time when the United States was the manufacturing hub of the world. We produced all kinds of stuff.

Then came along free trade.

Those young men did not know that there was a time when a young man could go into the workforce and afford to buy a home. buy a car and have a family.

Millennials voting against Donald Trump are voting against their own financial future.

Effects of Globalization on Global Conflicts

With tensions with china and the U.S. on the rise, what would happen if we went to war with china?

When you buy a product, do you read to label to see where it was made? How many “made in china” products do you see? I am willing to bet the majority of products you buy are made in china.

What do you think would happen if everything made in communist china was suddenly cut off from the U.S market?

Clothes, computer parts, shoes, toys,,,,, just about everything we consume is made in Asia.

What would stores like Best Buy and Walmart do without shipments of made in communist china products? How would the public react if they could not buy the latest and greatest tech toys? How would the auto industry react if they could not get parts?

How are we supposed to fight a war if we can not even make engines, transmissions, brake pads, computer chips, circuit boards and wheel bearings? How are we supposed to build ships without steel mills?

In the movie Patton starring George C. Scott, Patton made a comment that he knew the Germans were finished. The Germans had been defeated because they were using horses and wagons instead of armored vehicles.

Think about that for a minute, Patton knew the Germans were defeated when the Germans could no longer manufacture or maintain their vehicles.

Since communist china makes a lot of parts for the U.S.auto industry, where does that leave us? Will china only have to fight half a war? 1 – stop shipments of parts to the U.S. 2- destroy the limited manufacturing capability we have left.

National security has been sacrificed on the alter of free trade
