Republicans, read up on neo-mercantilism! It defines the battlefront of the now and future.
Republicans think the threat stems from a Chinese carrier task force appearing out of the fog of the western Pacific, smashing Pearl Harbor, proceeding through the Panama Canal (that Jimmy Carter 'gave away') and invading Texas. That's not the national security threat at all. These Republicans miss the battlefield completely.
The battlefield is economic and technological and the Republican party is losing this battle for America.
Just how much money have we spent on the Republican party's long term social engineering project in Iraq and their nation building project in Afghanistan?
Republicans still think war is FREE.
