U.S. joins the New Silk Road

Dan Schmitt

Marshalltown

Well it has calmed down here in Iowa now that the Democratic Caucus is over. But the fight goes on.

I stood alone at my caucus for Martin O’Malley. Unfortunately, it shows what money can do. Different members supporting other candidates came over to wish me well, but not to change who they were supporting.

None of the presidential candidates of either party have put into writing what their policies are. This is what makes the LaRouche team much different. We have just released a 33 page pamphlet titled “The U.S. Joins the New Silk Road” copies of which were delivered to the local city council, board of supervisors and to the public library.

In plain English, it says with maps and pictures — let’s get rid of this Imperial Drive to rule the world and let’s instead cooperate with nations around the world for great economic development projects — as the Chinese are already doing. That includes half of the world population.

In 2014, at the APEC meeting in Beijing, Chinese President Xi JinPing invited the U.S. to join in and be part of this development prospect.

Since Obama failed to accept this offer, we have lost this potential for a truly new change for the entire world to create a world drive for economic development with mag-lev train capacity and share our original Hamiltonian vision for an economic renaissance. It is an excellent read for all people.

It is a plan not put forth by any of the candidates but calls for re-enacting the Glass-Steagall law that O’Malley promoted.

This is an afterthought. As a farmer, I thought Bernie had a good ad with rows of green corn across two sections into the rising sun. That crop is stored or sold for half the cost of production. It raises no one’s economy.
