December 6, 2010 Who shipped our jobs overseas
I was in a conversation with a friend who posts here at Conservative Utopia quit often. He and I don`t always agree but I enjoy our posts back and forth as we hash out the issues of the day. In our last conversation we were arguing about “jobs being shipped overseas” and who or what was responsible for that fact. The progressives are always making the moronic statement that the Republicans shipped jobs overseas. This statement is illogical, the Republicans don`t have the power to tell some CEO “hey buddy, move your company overseas we don`t want you here”. What benefit would any American have with doing that, Republican or Democrat? The companies which have moved have done so because: A) labor unions are too expensive in the US, and B) The corporate tax rate in the US is among the highest in the world (35%) second only to India (30-40%)
If you were a corporate CEO and you had to answer to stockholders and keep your profits at an acceptable level to entice investors to stay; you would move over seas as well. The government is the problem people not the solution, how is it that Americans continue to trust anything the government says? Progressives in both the Democrat and Republican parties have fought tax cuts to corporations for years. As soon as the conservative start talking about cutting corporate tax rates the progressives start using the age old Marxist class warfare rhetoric “ tax cuts for the rich”. If we Americans were smart enough to look at our free market economy like a business instead of a social welfare system we would see that we want to be the most competitive country in the world. If we cut corporate tax rates not only would these companies come home but foreign companies would come as well.
The progressives have been masterful since the 1960`s cultural revolution at brainwashing the American public with “class warfare” rhetoric. They have taught Americans to hate the rich as if they were some sort of enemy of the state. They have convinced a large portion of the population that America is economically unjust; while never seeing the true injustice of tyrannical governments across the globe and throughout history. If you look at the world in terms of being a neighborhood, America is the rich kid on the block; everyone is jealous and covets our accomplishments. These same citizens who envy America don`t have the intestinal fortitude to change their own forms of government. It is reminiscent of the old story of the crab bucket. When a fisherman is catching crabs he usually puts them in a five gallon bucket. There is no need to put a lid on the bucket because if one crab tries to escape, the other crabs pull him back down. Jealousy, greed, covetousness, and fear are the tools of the progressive ideology.
The progressives are masterful liars and they do so because they believe that their mission, their intellect, and their morality is so far superior to the great unwashed; that the ends justifies the means. That is to say that they will justify their lies because they think their policies are the answer to all problems period. Progressives can never seem to hold a majority in this country to get their agenda passed; this is why they work so hard to get their judges in place in appeals courts and on the Supreme Court. In this way they can legislate from the bench rather in the state and federal legislatures. I can hear the drones out their saying that the GOP or conservatives believe the same thing, that their ideology is superior. To that I would answer; history proves that the experiment called America works; it also proves the experiment called Marxism does not. This is an undeniable fact; Marxism has been responsible for millions of deaths of innocent civilians in the name of so called social justice and economic equality.
The once great Democrat party made its mark in the industrial revolution by standing up for the working class against crony capitalists and progressive Republicans who used their power for greed. There was at that time a need to organize and help defeat corrupt and powerful businessmen and politicians. The country pulled together in the 40`s and 50`s and the free market capitalist system flourished to produce a magnificent society of free and independent citizens. The only problem was not all citizens were allowed to participate. The colored peoples and women were held back by a racists and bigoted Supreme Court who was beholden to southern white democrats like Robert Byrd and Albert Gore.
In the 1960`s along came the civil rights movement which was sorely needed in this great nation and Dr. King and others where hero`s of our country. The Democrat party was absolutely in the tank with racists to hold back the civil rights movement of that day. During the 1960`s and 70`s the progressive movement which had lost its appeal during WWII was again in search of a home. It found its home in the Democrat party and they haven`t looked back since. The progressive movement is the new name for the same old tyranny of European socialism which has held that part of the world back for centuries. The ruling class mentality of European countries goes back to the very foundations of human history. One nation was founded to finally give men the freedoms to totally self govern. America was an experiment in men`s ability to live under equality of opportunity; all men would be equal under the law with the freedom to become who they so choose to be. No more would the Kings, Queens, and tyrants of the European ruling class make decisions with men`s lives; the law would be king and all would bow to its rule.
The same mentality of the ruling class of Europe can be found in the modern day progressive movement. The Democrat party no longer has the right to claim any so called “conservative Democrats” and the proof is in their own voting records. The Republicans have seen the growth of a new conservative movement in the “Tea Party” and the progressives in the Republican Party hate them. The only hope for America is for the conservative movement to defeat all progressives in the Republican and Democrat party. Conservatives need to fight the media and their constant propaganda promoting class warfare which turns one citizen against another. The American people need to understand that government and progressive politicians create the very problems they then tell us they will fix. We the people can self govern and we do not need Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Bush, or any other progressive elitists from the ruling class to run our lives. They work for us damn it! They are supposed to be servants to our nation not tyrants who throw us crumbs while they spend like drunken sailors. Wake up citizens!
