Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton had their first shared television event of the election season this week as the American political circus continues. Noticeably absent was any discussion of the real issues affecting the American people. Nothing on the Fed’s war on savings, the false promises of central bankers, and their schemes to give them even more power. Nothing on fixing the cronyist healthcare system, which leaves all Americans poorer and more vulnerable. And nothing about vitally needed cuts to government spending, just as Ryan McMaken predicted last week. While it’s great to see a major party nominee question the wisdom of invading foreign countries, what is needed is an honest conversation about America’s economic reality.
