How come it is that nobody gives a thought to how this will affect foreign relations . . . ? A divided USA will encourage enemies greatly.
///
we are already divided. our allies, CANNOT count on us, from one election to the next.
(just as businesses, find it impossible to make long range plans)
a stable economy, and stable foreign policy our allies can trust and depend on, would be a vast improvement.
with the current polarization, it is simply impossible.

Our “allies” have long been more of a burden to us than a help. Let’s face it, far more benefits have flowed from the New World to the Old World, than the other way around. We gave them potatoes, corn and tomatoes, they gave us smallpox, malaria and slavery. Heckuva trade.
