Dockadams, What don't you know about me. I am 100% BERNIE LEFT.
And the Bernie left is largely why Donald wound up "winning" (even though 3 million more people voted for Hillary).
The ideological purists who pouted that their candidate didn't win the primary and then either stayed home in November or voted for someone who had zero chance of winning are worse than any Donald supporter out there. They put their feelings over their country and look at what we have now.

That's a great wish list, but I think you forget that we are fifty different states that purposefully has a weak(ish) central government, especially when it comes to day-to-day domestic affairs.
You're also kind of glossing over the fact that all fifty states offer free (well, taxpayer funded) education.
The reason many jobs aren't created internally (whatever that means...) is because there is a brain drain when it comes to the highly technical jobs currently available. It's not like these "internal jobs" aren't open to everyone, but white people just don't seem to be interested in them.
Take a look at any engineering, robotic, or highly technical degree program at any college in this country and I'll show you classes whose minority makeup is 80% or more. It's not like colleges prevent "real" (aka white) Americans from enrolling in these degree programs. Are you aware of some law that mandates engineering classes contain 80% minorities?

So should we continue letting the perfect be the enemy of the good?
I'm also not sure what you mean when you say the Democratic Party lost its way 40 years ago and began telling people how to live. Are you suggesting that Jimmy Carter, a former peanut farmer, didn't care about the common man?
Your feelings don't align with the facts. They also don't align with the way our Federal government actually operates. The President is not a king; the Congress often changes between political parties; and state and local governments are far more powerful than you seem to understand.
As Tip O'Neill famously said - "all politics is local."

We live in a nuclear world where a sound foreign policy is imperative to the survival of not just our country, but the world. Russia has 7,300 nuclear warheads, America has 6,970, and six other countries have a combined total of more than 1,000 nuclear warheads. One miscalculation and the world as we know it can literally go up in flames in a matter of minutes.
Being isolationists is not an option. "America first" is not an option.
