It is funny to watch. It is funny because this circus shows us just how connected the two parties really are when all is said and done. Paul Ryan acts as if he is taking the high ground in his denying support to Donald Trump, when in reality it has nothing to do with morality.
The connection that Ryan and Clinton share is not moral but philosophical. Ryan and Clinton are both globalists. They both want to see one big global community that never puts one people over others. It is the new socialism.
Donald Trump made headlines this week when he questioned whether Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan wanted him to prevail over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
“Maybe not,” Trump told Good Morning America on Tuesday. “Because maybe he wants to run in four years… or maybe he doesn’t know how to win. I mean, who can really know?” Trump said.
The view that Ryan “doesn’t know how to win,” however, neglects the reality that both Ryan and Clinton share a progressive, globalist worldview, which is at odds with Trump’s “America first” approach.
Indeed, both Clinton and Ryan have said that they see themselves as representatives not only for American citizens, but also for foreign nationals and foreign interests. This view that the needs of foreign citizens are equal to the needs of American citizens reflects the belief that Americans are only part of many interest groups that a lawmaker ought to consider when crafting legislation—even as he or she negotiates with other countries, which always put their citizens first.
Hillary has stated that she did not see herself as someone that was merely the representative of a small group of people in America, but also India. While Ryan has also used India to represent the fact that “Progressive Globalists” see America as an idea rather than an identity.
They are on the same side and have the same goals; they simply differ on the means we should use to meet those goals.
This is why our system is broken beyond repair.
