NAFTA outsources jobs; Our indebtedness to China is used as an excuse to take food off our tables; Bush mention’s the “crusades”; abuses of U.S. Sovereignty by TransCanada; military personnel at the church pulpit; immigration; winning elections by “divide and conquer”; subtle propaganda by the military/congressional complex; Wall St investing QE monies overseas in competing economies; Politicians using fear as a tool; Anti-Gay rights rhetoric; Iran propaganda and the “they are going to get us” message; Western Oil and Gas industries instances that Iranian oil will be theirs; Our leaders lying about everything that is Afganistan; Calls for “energy independence” because of a middles eastern threat; the practice of vilifying the enemy or opposing political party as bad; etc.
