Before I majored in journalism and media production I actually went to college to become a history teacher and there is a saying in history that if you don’t know your past you are bound to repeat it.
Simply, if the people and government keep catering to republicans our country and life as we know it will be destroyed.
First, I am not a republican or democrat I am a independent and I am for what is best for our country and our country is in this current economic state due to both parties. Democrats always want free trade when the other countries don’t have the same human rights and labor laws like we do. Then republicans are always fighting for big businesses and the rich, so at every corner republicans try to get something for businesses.
So, with businesses free to go anywhere they want now without any repercussion, many of them have shipped jobs to Mexico and India to save money on labor and compete with the Asian and African countries that have very few laws as us. They also don’t make any advancements in safety unless they have to and if you don’t believe me check this video out from MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow.
Now, don’t get me wrong American companies are just as guilty of this. Even Ford is guilty of this as its subsidiary company Visteon Corporation had a production plant here in West Seneca, but moved the plant to Mexico. I know that to be true, because my brother in-law work there when it moved.
Then there is Lexmark who is based out of Kentucky. In 2004 I worked for Client Logic, who is a outsourcing customer service company, where I worked in the Lexmark division. Lexmark shipped its customer service to India. Even though our division had a 99 percent satisfaction rate they still shipped it over there like many other companies, which is obviously the inspiration for NBC’s show “Outsourced.”
Throughout history dynasties have fallen time and time again for one single reason alone. Their government started to run out of money due to the rich buying up land, that was the source of tax revenue, and this was a problem, because the rich usually didn’t pay that much taxes.
So, what do you think is going to happen if we keep voting Republicans into the government?
First, they will keep giving the rich tax exemptions and then keep on sending troops over seas to fight in Afghanistan or other countries where Al Queda is thought to be. That will then lead to many programs being eliminated and big programs like Social Security see big budget cuts.
Then eventually a country with a evil dictator like North Korea will eventually convince a poor country like Mexico to invade. That already happened in World War II in the Zimmermann Telegram.
If you don’t believe me then ask your self this question; When you walk into Wal-Mart and a shopping do you look around on the products you need to make sure they are American made or do you look for the cheapest product?
In the end, if you want our country’s economy back on track start voting for the people that will hold businesses accountable, because they are the ones that have created this mess in the first place.
