How the GOP Lost Middle Class America - Pat BuchananSubmitted by freedom express on Sun, 02/02/2014 - 15:26
Pat does a good job in pointing out basically, what Dr Paul has continued to point out, the GOP sold out to Corporations. Though he doesn't call them Corporate Fascists/Corporatists he makes the point.
To understand why and how the Republican Party lost Middle America, and faces demographic death, we need to go back to Bush I.
At the Cold War’s end, the GOP reached a fork in the road. The determination of Middle Americans to preserve the country they grew up in suddenly collided with the profit motive of Corporate America.
The Fortune 500 wanted to close factories in the USA and ship production abroad – where unions did not exist, regulations were light, taxes were low, and wages were a fraction of what they were here in America.
Corporate America was going global and wanted to be rid of its American workforce, the best paid on earth, and replace it with cheap foreign labor.
