One of the biggest challenges facing the American economy is that we lack a domestic manufacturing base. Simply put we do not produce anything anymore. We buy tons of foreign goods and then wonder why we are lacking jobs. We import most of our goods which has resulted in a huge trade deficit and industrial job losses. Our economy has transitioned from an agricultural society to an industrial society to a service economy. —Mark Riddix
So who is your choice? John Kasich? He voted for NAFTA when in congress and then presided over the industrial exodus as governor of Ohio. NAFTA was the beginning of the end of middle class jobs. Now he’s promoting TPP which not only will destroy more American jobs, but will threaten American sovereignty and our Constitution.
Marco Rubio, an ineligible anchor baby pawn of the Koch Brothers who wants to throw open American doors to the entire world? Rubio cast the deciding vote for the TPA fast track, and didn’t even read it. Link Now he’s telling people to vote for Kasich in Ohio, to stop Donald Trump.
Ted Cruz, an ineligible Canadian Bush globalist, who quadrupled the H1B foreign worker program? Cruz even backed fast track for Obama for the TPP. [Link] Probably one of the worst deceptions I’ve seen in a long time. He has a Bible in one hand, and a knife in the other.
Donald Trump, a self-confessed Establishment slayer and successful real estate developer- and ELIGIBLE who wants our borders closed and a wall built to stop the influx of illegals? He is for trade, but not for the rotten deals that destroy American jobs and leave us with huge deficits. Is he a politician? No. Does he know every facet of America’s problems? No. But this man, unlike all the rest, listens to the people of America.
Kasich and NAFTA
On November 17, 1993, Kasich voted to approve the North American Free Trade Agreement, casting a "yea" vote for the North American Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act. In doing so, the exodus of America jobs started going south. See the best Trump rally to date in Boca Raton Florida yesterday.
The calls to our Congress Criminals were 10 to 1 against it, yet the Republicans saved the day for NAFTA and voted for this job destroying agreement. Within 10 years, over a million American jobs were lost. [Link] American industry has been decimated.
After two decades of NAFTA, we can measure its actual outcomes. The grand promises made by proponents remain unfulfilled. Many outcomes are exactly the opposite of what was promised. Many U.S. firms used the new investor protections to relocate production to Mexico to take advantage of its low wages and weak environmental standards and to attack NAFTA countries’ environmental and health laws in foreign tribunals. Over $340 million in compensation to investors has been extracted from NAFTA governments via these “investor-state” challenges. The American people have suffered, and the old statement of jobs being sucked south to Mexico is radically true.
Kasich and TPP
GOP presidential candidate Ohio Gov. John Kasich came out in support of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement during the fourth GOP primary debate hosted by Fox Business, saying the deal is “critical.” So far, Ohio has lost 112,500 jobs to TPP.
Donald Trump has a totally different take on the Trans Pacific Partnership. Here’s what he said in answer to a debate question posted by WSJ’s Gerard Baker:
The TPP is a horrible deal. It is a deal that is going to lead to nothing but trouble. It's a deal that was designed for China to come in, as they always do, through the back door and totally take advantage of everyone. It's 5,600 pages long. So complex that nobody's read it. It's like Obamacare; nobody ever read it. They passed it; nobody read it. And look at mess we have right now. And it will be repealed.
Trump was exactly right…China will come into it, and it is a deal that is more destructive than all the other trade deals combined.
Senator Sessions said in his Senate remarks, "The administration has zero interest in preventing foreign market manipulations and currency manipulations, and thus the TPP will cause massive job losses. It just will. We will be less able to compete.” [Link]
The Obama administration-backed agreement is bad news for a number of other reasons too, threatening U.S. sovereignty, the economy, and the Constitution. As such, it must be stopped, according to a recent four-part video series examining different elements of the regional agreement by researcher and analyst Christian Gomez, who has studied the treaty, and William F. Jasper, senior editor of the New American magazine. [Link]
Kasich on Second Amendment.
Signing Clinton's Gun and Magazine Ban.
when he was a US Congressman John
Kasich voted for the Clinton Gun and Magazine ban. Nothing more needs
to be said. Kasich not only lacks a solid understanding of world affairs
and world history, but he is also anti-gun.
And if voting for the Clinton gun and magazine ban is not enough proof, as Governor of Ohio, Kasich signed Medicaid reform that contained a version of “see a shrink lose your guns.” Governor Kasich is simply another politician who will excuse criminal behavior as mental illness and by extension would likely void the Second Amendment rights of anyone who sees a “shrink.” [Link]
Kasich on Amnesty
Illegal immigrants are “a critical part of our society” and should be provided a route to amnesty, Republican presidential candidate John Kasich tells a coalition of Hispanic company executives. Kasich wants a path to legalize all Illegal aliens, see video below.
“For those that are here that have been law abiding, God bless them,” he told the business group, which is a major advocate for expanded immigration.
“Then I think the [illegals] should have a path to legalization… I think that can pass,” Kasich said, using one of the euphemisms for granting legal residency to illegal immigrants. [Link]
Kasich was all for taking in Syrian refugees and encouraged Obama to accept them. Then the Paris attacks happened, and he decided perhaps it wasn’t such a good idea, and joined other governors saying no to refugees. Instead, he wants a more robust U.S. military presence in the Middle East and pointed to his experience in Congress on the House Armed Services Committee. [Link]
Personally I believe our soldiers have spent enough time in the Middle East, bring them all home, and put them on our borders.
Despite saying he’s against Obama Care, Kasich accepted the Medicaid expansion under the bill for the State of Ohio. [Link]
John Kasich defended his support for Common Core, claiming the standards
were developed by governors and adopted locally. Critics argue that Common
Core was written behind closed doors with little evidence governors were
closely involved, then forced on schools by the federal government. Who
says our governors are any good at deciding what American education should
be? How about taking us back to academic teaching instead of behavioral
modification a la Pavlov/Skinner?
"Governors themselves wrote the standards," Kasich said at the National Review Institute's Ideas Summit. "We've implemented the standards. I didn't implement them, Obama didn't implement them, nobody did. The local school boards have adopted the standards, and now, the curriculum is being written by local school boards. I don't know what's wrong with that."
Kasich paints a picture of Common Core that would be nice, if only it were rooted in reality. [Link]
What a joke!
Charters, Choice and Vouchers
Kasich also loves charter schools, and choice/vouchers. The problem with charters is that they’re tax funded, but do not report to the local school boards. The very definition of a charter school is "an alternative education system where a school receives public funding and operates privately." This is taxation without representation. We now have tax supported Fethullah Gulen charter schools, Chinese charter schools, (Chinese investors are putting millions into Florida Chinese charters) Waldorf charter schools, etc. etc. ad nauseam. Do you want to support Islamic, communist, and Rudolph Steiner's Anthroposophical Society charters with your tax dollars, to name just a few?
Should the state legislatures accept voucher/choice proposals, ALL receiving federal, state, and local tax money, MUST conform their curriculum, etc., to FEDERAL/INTERNATIONAL standards. There won't be any elected boards to complain to about sex, drugs, and death education in the schools, or the politically correct "green" nonsense.
The words of John Chubb and Terry Moe, of The Brookings Institute and Stanford University respectively, -- “Our guiding principle in the design of a choice system is this: Public authority must be put to use in creating a system that is almost entirely beyond the reach of public authority.” (Politics, Markets and America's Schools, 1990). Please read that again slowly. Get it in your heads...they want a choice system that is beyond the reach of the taxpayer and parents!
Do you fully understand the statement? Their plan was to fool the public into believing that school choice was a wonderful idea! What the public doesn't comprehend is the fact that once school choice/vouchers are passed in a state, there is no more private, religious or home school education which does not have to follow the rotten federal education requirements.
Please understand that private schools cannot remain independent once they have accepted federal funding through vouchers/choice.
Let's look at the federal law regarding tax funding of schools. In March, 1984, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that private schools are subject to government regulations because they enroll students who receive tuition money from the government. Even though the checks are payable to individual students, not the school, the Court says any scholarships, loans, or grants to students "constitute federal financial assistance."
The desire for total government control of education started long ago. However, back then, we had preachers who told the truth and informed the public. In August of 1933, Dr. J. Gresham Machen, gave the speech, The Necessity of the Christian School. He was Professor of New Testament in Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia, Pa. The lecture was given at the Educational Convention held in Chicago under the auspices of the National Union of Christian Schools.
"Every lover of human freedom ought to oppose with all his might the giving of Federal aid to the schools of this country; for Federal aid in the long run inevitably means Federal control, and Federal control means control by a centralized and irresponsible bureaucracy, and control by such a bureaucracy means the death of everything that might make this country great. Against this soul-killing collectivism in education, the Christian school, like the private school, stands as an emphatic protest. In doing so, it is no real enemy of the public schools. On the contrary, the only way in which a state-controlled school can be kept even relatively healthy is through the absolutely free possibility of competition by private schools and church schools; if it once becomes monopolistic, it is the most effective engine of tyranny and intellectual stagnation that has yet been devised."
Whatever the government funds with our tax dollars, the government ultimately controls.
John Kasich is a pro-life governor, and has closed many clinics in Ohio, he also wants to defund Planned Parenthood in the state. As great as that is, his stances on education, free-trade, jobs, the second amendment, and amnesty are those of the left. At best, Kasich is a moderate.
Thanks to the diligence of Paul Walter, CEO of NewsWithViews, many ideas for my articles have come from him. Paul immigrated from communist Yugoslavia, providence of Slovenia, and therefore he sees more clearly the dangers to our Republic than those who have always known free America as home.
