    There was a time when the united states was known as the melting pot of the world. In fact when my wife took her naturalization citizenship test, she was taught there is not such thing as a hyphened American, we are all Americans regardless of where we came from or what race, color or creed. But that has changed, I do not think we are the melting pot anymore, we now have African-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Asian-Americans, Native-Americans and a couple of more I probably forgot about. We have went from a goal of including everyone and everybody as Americans to segregating us once more into groups. Instead of uniting one and all, we are once again dividing.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    That's a good point. We don't seem to have the culture clashes here that seem to occur across the pond.

    Re: globalization

    Globalization mostly means westernization. It means the sweeping away of local culture and economy and supplanting it with someone else's way.

    Most of the world population still lives on less than a dollar a day. Globalization benefits only a few.

    That's true and I question the benefits too. I certainly don't think it would eliminate poverty, pollution or anything else for that matter. Not to mention, who and how would this ever be organized. The UN?

    Re: globalization

    Was that a stupid question? Seriously, I want to know how a global economy would be organized, and what if some countries don't want to be a part of a global economy?

    Re: globalization

    If globalization means more secrets and more government meddling in economies/bailing out corporations....then I am against it.

    If it just means free enterprise stretching over borders - I am for it.

    More free enterprise, smaller government and NEVER any bailouts is what the world economy needs.

    Re: globalization

    In order to have a "global economy" we would all have to use the same currency. I can't see how a global economy could work in any other way. How in the heck would we manage that?

    It would be organized as a centralized system, where individual countries would follow the decrees of the central bank / government.

    Essentially, nations unders such a system would have to relinquish some or all of their national sovereignty and allowing the international entity to dictate their policies.


    and what if some countries don't want to be a part of a global economy?
    If a country does not consent, then they will be brought into the system by conquest.

    I don't think this is going to happen . . . not in my lifetime anyway. It sounds much too complicated and would take too much cooperation. Our own main two governing parties can't even agree on the most simple of issues, so I highly doubt anyone could get this much cooperation and organization to ever occur.

    So in other words, we have not given enough cake to the third world so we should let our ship sink because of them? I don't think so.
