DOMESTIC ISSUES ARE NOT WHAT'S IMPORTANT...
US domestic politics is checkers.
US foreign policy is chess.
The global chessboard - that's where the big boys play.
Because the US is only 5% of the world's population.
There's a whole big world out there up for grabs.
Control a bunch of it, and you've got yourself an Empire.
Banking, finance, currency, technology, language, entertainment, and most importantly - military - are utterly dominated by the US Empire across the world.
The US Empire is by far the Biggest Empire the world has ever seen.
The problem is that Empires are all about conquering.
And conquering involves killing lots of people - lots of children.
