WHY AMERICA FIRST?

World leaders lose their tempers when America says ‘America First’. In their minds America is saying that all other countries don’t matter, that they come second or third or way down on the ladder or nowhere on the ladder.

Nobody respects a father or mother who puts outsiders first, rather than their own. Nobody on earth does that and at the same time are considered competent and respected heads of their families.

Some say, we can all be one happy world family. Just let us in, or give us your money, or your scientific and technological knowledge, open it all up to us. It’s going to take too long to get what you have and we don’t want to spend all the required time catching up.

So all these decades you all were enjoying the life of leisure swinging in your hammocks, while others, worlds away, were working to make the earth a better place to live – easier for everyone. You wanted your way in your culture in your region in your time and everybody leave us alone you’d shout with your fist to the sky. We don’t even want all that modern stuff. What happened? Now you do. And you’re still wearing loin cloths and sandals and beating your wives and causing wars that keep you all in the cave.

Your superior/supremacist attitude held you back. Your egos, big as cave openings, wouldn’t let you out. You think the more somebody acquires the more supremacist they are. It’s the ones who refused to change in order to move forward who are the real supremacists. They are the ones who think the old way is the only right way, and why can’t we exist with dirt roads and no medicine absent heated and/or air-conditioned living spaces. Your culture, not invention, ingenuity and progress, came first. You clung to it like a baby who clings to a blanket.

You said leave us alone; get out of our spaces. Go back from where you came. Yet here you are losing your tempers because America finally said “America First”. We didn’t put America first for a long time. We shared our knowledge; our people paid with their wages to send people with skills, knowledge and supplies to help you build your nations, but still there were too many who wanted the old life – a life where people die young, where they suffer without knowledge on how best to survive.

You didn’t want to be catapulted into the modern world. The issue was the catapult; it was too sudden. But it didn’t have to be if you had stopped with all that culture supremacy that really means nothing. There’s not much value in anything that comes under the label of culture. It’s a bunch of traditions that hurt more than help – in almost every instance. Everything else comes under the labels of ‘living’ and ‘progressing’ or ‘dying’.

In short, you didn’t want to do the work of it, even when you were shown how and given the tools and the funds. You still found a way to muck it up.

So what have you all done for America, except make continuous demands on America’s people, their resources, knowledge and experience?

There’s a growing trend that wants America to become a welfare state absorbing the poor people of other nations, while financially supporting those nations as well as others.

If America becomes filled with people with low paying jobs, because nobody can speak each other’s language, and everybody gets the same benefits, how will these Americans pay enough taxes to send money and other aid to all the countries it currently subsidizes? Socialism can only sustain it’s own people for a limited amount of time before turning to other states for handouts.

World leaders need to think twice before attacking the American system that helps to feed their own people and keeps them free by providing subsidies off the backs of the American worker.

Yes. In order to keep sharing what we have with the world, we need to keep progressing and to take care of our own first. It is the citizens who pay out of their pay checks in taxes to supplement economies of over two hundred nations worldwide. Regionally, Africa receives 32 percent of all U.S. aid, followed by the Middle East at 31 percent and South and Central Asia at 25 percent. Afghanistan receives the most.

In the meanwhile, all classes of working Americans subsidizing the economies of other nations, so they can survive and thrive, deserve a thank you from all those countries benefiting from their hard work and sacrifice.

So, again, what have you given the hard working American people, except your demands and disrespect? Calling them supremacists. You sure got that one backwards, true to your fixed culture-based nature I’d say.

Think on that.

Then the next time you walk out of the cave, show some respect for a world built by human beings working together.
