What Will Be the New American Cause?

Patrick J. Buchanan, CNS News

With the democracy crusades now repudiated, what is America's cause, what is America's mission in the world? We will have the same treaty obligations to go to war on behalf of dozens of nations in Europe and Asia and at the same time, we will be running deficits on the order of $3 trillion a year with a shrunken economic base. If Trump wins, borders will be tightened. The U.S. withdrawal from the Mideast will continue. U.S. manufacturing will begin to be repatriated. Transnational institutions will be downgraded, ignored and superseded. In a second Donald Trump presidency, there would likely be even less concern for how other nations rule themselves.
