The United States has been meddling too much into foreign affairs. This has cost us billions of dollars as well as thousands of lives over the past couple of decades. The war in the middle east which began in 2003 and ended in 2011 took 4,491 U.S. lives. Since 2001, the U.S. has spent $1.6 trillion dollars in wars. Now with threats coming from China and ISIS we can expect those numbers to increase.

Since the implementation of the North American “Free Trade” Agreement (NAFTA), the American economy, which was already stagnating, has gone downhill at an increasing speed. When we examine the details of the “free trade” agreement, it is easy to see why it has caused so much devastation. From toxic imports to the flooding of illegal immigrants, NAFTA has all but decimated the United States.
Our once great nation is falling behind the rest of the developed countries in many areas. One of those areas is our infrastructure. In fact, globally the U.S. ranks 16th in quality of infrastructure. America went from having the world’s most modernized roadways and highways in the mid-1900s to an outdated and hazardous infrastructure today. In 2013 we were ranked 19th and last year we went up 3 spots, not because we have improved our infrastructure but because other countries’ infrastructures worsened. When will the United States actually achieve a higher ranking better because of actual improvement and not because of the failures of other countries?
