Why Trumpism? Here's a List

We repeat this item on occasion because it's worth knowing.  This is what Paul Ryan and two far less consequential Wisconsin 'conservative' pundits campaign against.

Bring jobs and industries back to America. End our reliance on Communist China and build American supply chains instead of “global supply chains.”  Buy American and hire American....

 Forget free-trade dogma—defend American workers and businesses against the predations of a global corporate oligarchy. Do what’s good for American citizens rather than what’s good for “the global economy.”

America’s voters believe in countries and national sovereignty, not in submission to the alphabet soup of transnational authorities such as the WTO, WHO, G20, OECD, and so on.

They chose to restrict immigration to end the downward pressure on American wages.

They believe in rule by elected representatives rather than by a permanent state bureaucracy and judges accountable to no one.

They chose to end the military adventurism of endless wars that drains our blood and treasure and destroys tradition and cultures here and abroad. Make our allies pay their fair share for their defense. They recognized “America’s leadership role in the world” is fancy talk for making America the “policeman of the world,” and said, “No thanks.”

They know we must rebuild America rather than embark on nation-building projects around the world.

They feel in their gut we must break up the monopolies that control our media, technology, and economy and have an undue influence over our society and government.

They rejected the neo-Marxist ideology of race and gender identity and stood up for American national identity, Western civilization, Judeo-Christian culture, and traditional values of God, personal responsibility, and inalienable rights such as freedom of speech granted by our Creator, not the government....

As to the two now-faded mouth-runners:  in this podcast, they pine for the Good Old Days of Losing.  Mitt Romney would be proud of them.  (When you click on the link, you'll be one of the 100 who actually listen to them.  Maybe you'll get a free T-shirt!)

Trump only believes in such things because it enables him to continue his grifting.
