Democracy in the English-speaking world

Reader comment on item: There's a Name for Trump's Brand of Politics: Neo-fascism
in response to reader comment: Republicans of Pennsylvania

Hello, Anne and Daniel

Daniel, I suppose being an "Independent" isn't out of character for Philadelphia. Still, I hope you vote for the Republican candidate in November. I accept whatever God sends my way; and we have all survived seven years of Obama so far, something I thought seven years ago would be unthinkable. That doesn't keep my stomach from turning at the thought of another Democrat in the White House. May God send ravens to feed you in Independenceland.

Anne, I didn't stay in Australia long enough to be able to submit "donkey ballots". We have a check and balance in the Anglo world, in that we're divided between several countries: the US, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. If one country makes a real lulu, like voting for an Obama, the others can keep sanity afloat to some degree.

BTW, you mentioned Australia in another post, with reference to the TPP. It is true, that Australia is a signator of that treaty, along with Vietnam and other countries. The core of TPP, however, is a trade agreement that has already been ratified, between New Zealand, Singapore, Brunei and Chile. That's essentially the "core" (or "seed") upon which the TPP is forming.

Ultimately, the globalist corporations hope to link this with a US-EU agreement and others (EU already has agreements with Mexico, almost Canada, Chile, South Korea and almost Vietnam, Singapore, Peru and Colombia; and these are all in the process of being interconnected with EFTA as well. It's no secret, that our leaders are looking at these not as "trade blocs", but as the first step towards a military alliance; because where trade, visa policies, defence policy, and ultimately common political policy all intertwine. China and Russia need not apply, of course. I don't know how far this will progress, before war breaks out; but that's the gist of it. The English language, of course, will be central to the enterprise.

Shalom shalom :-)
