I am doing everything in my power to fix my issues, I donít worry about issues outside of my control (such as an employer wanting to give me an interview or extending an offer). My lord Jesus will decide what happens and if my work continues or not and how things play out.

I do my part (apply for jobs I am qualified for), take courses and work on certs etc and donít worry about what is out of my control.

Good, the key thing to remember is voting for Trump isn't going to bring back white privileges. Mexicans don't complain a lot because they don't expect much; blacks don't complain because they just go get their entitlements.

Right... we're going to just crush China while we are still middling around in Iraq and Afghanistan which has been going on 15 years now.

Let's try actually using some common sense instead of insane troll logic.

Right... this is the same guy who wrote this piece earlier weeks earlier:

Like I said a 100% embargo would also do the trick, repair relations with Russia and have the Russians cut them off from any arms and build up defenses in Tiawan. Isolate them and colapse their economy, they are not our friends I dont know why we treat them like they are.

You mean like the embargo on Japanese oil and gasoline in August of 1941? Sometimes that leads to “unprovoked” attacks. Economic war quickly turns to real wars.

And it’s funny you say China isn’t our friend, but then you think we should have closer ties with Russia? Russia is far from a friend if you hadn’t noticed. And they have good relations with China to balance out the United States power. Why would they join us to take down our greatest competitive rival?

China isn’t an enemy. They’re a strong competitor. There’s a difference. Competition should bring the best out of Americans.

The biggest criticism I hear, is they steal IP. Do you think China is the only country that takes other countries ideas? Do a little research on the tizard mission (“the most valuable cargo to ever reach American shores”) and operation paper clip.

Russia isn't our friend either. Like I said if people want someone to blame, blame the companies who decided to deal with China in the first place. They knew how China's government operates and they still decided to get in to their market. We wouldn't be talking about this if they weren't so greedy.

The one who would be isolated is us.
Countries wouldn't want to deal with us, we would not be trustworthy.
In addition we are not capable of doing what you want us to do without great cost to ourselves.
People would be angry both here and abroad, and we would find ourselves unsupported.
Russia wouldn't be our friend, they would relish seeing us in the fight while undermining and exploiting wherever they could to their own advantage, and I wouldn't blame them.

People and nations aren't at our beck and call. They have their own goals to advance themselves. Trying to advance yourself through aggressive acts/war, is not acceptable in the world community. Working hardest/smartest is.

That's the unintended consequence of extreme nationalism. We can preach "America first". But then why shouldn't China preach "China first" or Russia preach "Russia first"? In situations like this when you need support it becomes harder to rally allies to your cause when you've alienated them. I mean they are sovereign nations just like us so.

Of course the more extreme factions of us will think we should just go to war with everyone else until they submit to us because might makes right! MAGA!

Never mind the fact that we haven't even been able to control the ME despite our almost continual military presence there. And just imagine how much a never ending war with the rest of the world would add to our already bloated deficit.
