Republicans running for President court a tea party-infused GOP electorate: The economy will thrive, they say, if Washington simply gets out of the way. As Rick Perry puts it: "Smaller government, less spending, fewer regulations." Really? Isn't deregulation the route America has been using the past 30 years and where did it get us? It seems the only regulation America wants is applied toward tribal casinos, yet they do not move overseas and open bank accounts around the globe. How is this not communism? How is it that the "good old boys" can pretty much control who they hire outside of the country, which pay rate they offer and whether or not these unskilled workers recieve retirement pensions? What about American workers and American jobs? Why do we not deserve jobs and pensions? The last time I checked, American businesses loathed and reneged on working Americans. It seems Republicans want Americans to be patriotic by treating us like children saying, taxpayers should be seen and not heard, or shut-up, wave your flags and your bibles like good little people while we get fat on stocks in American businesses overseas. And isn't Obama saying the same thing, but with emphasizing workers here on American soil by having more accountability and fair play with jobs? "Ultimately," President Barack Obama tells Congress, "our recovery will be driven not by Washington, but by our businesses and our workers. But we can help." Americans seem to turn into communist and socialism is okay, when it comes to "controlling and dictating tribal businesses", but they have no problem with American corporations hiring the CIA and military to wipe out smaller countries in the name of capitalism and net profit and even then, the American people offer their dead young and get no returns? How is this good for America whether you are Indian or white and you pay taxes that you have no say in where these taxes end up, like a briefcase in Iraq or Afghanistan for an enemy of the US used as bribery or extortion? Remember, everytime you shop at Wal-Mart, you keep some American CEO fat and employ communist? How is this good for Americans and where do Republicans fight to stop this business as usual outsource?
