Manifest destiny or the great game, which is more home-grown
Well, I’d say manifest destiny and it should not stop at Oregon because a body of water – the Pacific, is in the way. No. We have the means (physical materials, resources and laws) to push and explore further from where Lewis and Clark stopped. Too bad lazy thinking, old practices (what works for Pa and Grand Pa) and old Politicians are in the way.
Join the Pilgrims Alliance, and let’s turn the Pacific into an American lake or a Princess Charlotte’s lake. Asian pivot is just another step to ReBuildUSAtoday.
The great game is a European benefit, adopting it as American will get the U.S. tied up in Europe and the Middle East. Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the what is coming from Eastern European allies are examples of what George Washington said about not fighting or picking up sticks for allies “whose interest might not be same as ours.”
As of today, I’d add “value” and “ethics” as another set of reasons to uphold George Washington’s statement.
Too bad lazy thinking, old practices (what works for Pa and Grand Pa) and old Politicians are in the way. The U.S. presidential race is turning to a race between Grand Pa’s and Grand Ma’s – with the young #MarcoRubio and #TedCruz behaving as if they’ve been trained to talk and walk like an “old man” all their lives.
