I am a student from Germany and I’m interested in your political views.
During the election I have seen both sides and I have also checked the main points of the Republicans and the Democrats and I do not really get your arguments.
First: Why are you against Health Care for everyone? Of course you think everyone should be able to choose and do whatever he/she wants, but here in Germany this system works well and everyone has a basic governmental insurance so that he can go to doctors when he’s sick.
Concerning the government you also mention to lower taxes and reduce the impact of the government. But then again, who should pay for the infrastructure and the roads you drive your trucks on? I just can’t find an answer to this question because as an individual you surely would not pay the construction companies to build the roads.
Second: Why do you think rich people should pay less taxes? In Germany we have the highest tax rates for people with the highest income. I myself come from a family with a relatively high income and we can live the life we want and rich people live a happy life in Germany, not many are complaining because they just know it’s necessary for the national welfare. (of course, everyone is trying to lower his tax rate, but within our tax laws it is legal to do so. this year the state has a record high in tax income but we are still maybe the strongest economy in Europe, so there is no contradiction)
Third: Why are you so angry about latino immigrants. Of course, illegal immigration must be stopped, but the country has always been a country of immigrants. And I also understand that you hate to see illegal immigrants taking away the jobs of the Americans. But there are just no “true” Americans because the ones with the longest history in the US are either Native Americans or also descendants of immigrants from the 17th or 18th century. And by the way, the so called “minorities” are going to be the majority in the years to come and this will have a great impact on the elections. Republicans will have to move away from the right and conservative side and have to be open for changes in the US system because I think these changes are going to come.
From my point of view in Europe the US slowly but steady loses its influence on World Economics and the power is shifting to Asia. Businesses are moving their production to cheap asian countries and thereby these countries become stronger and consume much more.
This is just my view and I am looking forward to some answers to my questions.
Greetings from Germany
