Boehner, Barber and the Boys Have Two Years To Bring Back Prosperity
Reversal of NAFTA, GATT and
Return of the American Industrial Base
by Winsip Custer CPW News Service
With the capture of the US Congress by the Republicans, a new day is coming to the American experience. Troubles along the US/Mexican border punctuated by the decapitation of a Mexican police official investigating the murder of American, David Hartley, along with the exportation of jobs to Mexico, China and India, has given the new Republican leadership the mandate they need to reverse the "vast sucking noise" that H Ross Perot warned would be the direct effect of GATT and NAFTA.
Conservative economist, Friedkin Milken of the Washington D.C. economist think-tank Reversal of Fortunes, said after Tuesday night's election results... "It's not a sweeping mandate, but it is a solid one. Bush took eight years to tank an economy with a surplus, Obama couldn't reverse the trend with two years at the throttle and the American people feared that a liberal, big government policy push, wouldn't do it anyway. So they gave the Republicans just enough rope to go and hang themselves. If we conservatives wish to keep the golden goose alive, we are going to have to repeal the policies that got us here. Newt Gingrich will have to admit that Alvin Toffler was not his good buddy in giving him the idea that we would have to live just off of the new information-technology economy. That's why Newt sold out to the GATT and NAFTA proponents. We have lots of technology now and no new information. If we are going to ride the wave of prosperity into the future we have got to do some serious repealing of the past. In the meantime, we should go back and accept Boris Yeltin's request for help with a strategic alliance with the Russians, many of whose soldiers were liberated from the Bolshevik b.s. during their encounters with the other Allies during World War II only to return home to be the first to be imprisioned in Gulags by the paranoid dictator Joseph Stalin. Alexander Solzenitzyn is one clear example. Can you imagine the help we would have if we had the Nazi's that the Russians had commandeered for their programs after WWII as we had done with ours? And with their experience in cross-cultural alliances they could bring in a new coalition with us of overwhelming force and stability to a world that needs security, food, healthcare, education, sustainable energy and responsible industrial production."
I asked Mr. Milken if he thought that Democrats would use the Republican control of Congress to blame them for lack of economic progress over the next two years. "Yes," he said. "They will wait out the failure which will be inevitable if these reversals are not instituted and then they will be put back in full control in two years," said Milken. "That is why if we Republicans want to keep the golden goose alive so that we can deregulate the goose's nest and get our share of the eggs, we had better act fast."
