The “giant sucking sound” that Ross Perot warned of, as a result of NAFTA and other so-called “free trade agreements”, has occurred, and continues, as the de-industrialization of America continues, which is not happening by accident, but by plan. Globalization is destroying America, on purpose, to the benefit of the few, at the expense of the many. These “free trade” agreements are not about free trade. It doesn’t take hundreds, (or thousands), of pages to create free trade. It is typical of the globalist elite to use a warm, fuzzy name for something evil. They have been doing it for decades. – Shorty Dawkins, Associate Editor

On Friday’s edition of Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM, veteran pollster Pat Caddell explained that the Ford Motor Company’s decision to move its small-car manufacturing to Mexico has brought the nationalism vs. globalism debate into sharp focus for the electorate.
Caddell noted that Donald Trump pulling to within three points of Hillary Clinton in Michigan — a state that went Democrat in the last six elections, by 10 and 16 points for Barack Obama — shows that 2016 is a “national election” more so than we’ve had in a long time.
“Everyone in the political world and the mainstream media thinks that politics only began in 2008 or 2004. So that every election, the states are organized and there are only a handful of states that matter. No, this election is taking place nationally, and the movement that’s been going on has been going on everywhere,” Caddell told Breitbart Editor-in-Chief and SiriusXM host Alex Marlow.
“In all of these midwestern states, where there are blue-collar workers, where there are people who have been disadvantaged, you particularly see this race closing up from particularly what it was right after the conventions,” he observed.
“In Wisconsin and in Michigan — these are places that in early August, kind of the conventional wisdom said, ‘Oh, these states are already gone!’ And so, all of a sudden, all the ‘gone’ states are back into play, and then the states that were never in play, supposedly, some of them — we don’t have polling everywhere — but like in Maine it’s very close; Trump is ahead in the one district.”
“Even in red states, it’s a closer race, with Trump ahead for the most part, than it has been traditionally,” Caddell pointed out, as further evidence that a major political realignment is in progress.
