In fact, the people who are actually close minded in American politics are the people that love to preach about the certainty about science with regards to our climate, but ignore the absolute fact that science has proven that life begins at conception.
They don't want to take anything away from the vast majority of Americans in the hard working middle class. But they wonder who's fighting for them. And fighting for the hardworking everyday people of this country who do things right and do not complain. Because our hardworking middle class Is one of the things that makes America different and sets us apart from the rest of the world.
In the forward, another general writes that the 21st century should be a race to see who can become the champion country to lead world progress. So while we are here bickering, there is a nation trying to surpass us as the leading power in the world.
The Chinese Government provides the people no access to the Internet. If you escape China they actually put pressure on governments to forcibly return you. The Chinese Government uses forced labor. Do we want that to be the leading country in the world? So we want that to be the leading voice on this planet? That's the stakes.
Our people have not changed. The vast majority of the American people are hard-working taxpayers who go to work every day; who volunteer in their communities. What's changed is the world around us.
Just think how much the world has changed in the last ten years. The global economy is real--we don't live in the national economy anymore. Everything you buy- everything you touch--it's all impacted by things that are happening halfway around the world. The information age is real. It's changed the world and it's made out life easier, but it's also changed our economy. You go into a grocery store today and you'll find machines doing the job that people once did. You find today at many businesses that 1 person, because of automation, can do the work that 5 people used to do. It's the world around us that has changed. And this has had an impact on our people
