But the Southern Democrats in Texas didn't look anything like Obama's Democrats. Kirby rejected any movements that threatened wealth. He was convinced that organized labor would destabilize the contented and relatively prosperous Texas workers. FDR's New Deal would destroy America, he believed, so he worked vehemently against FDR, as did others like William Rhodes Davis, Hitler's American agent whose Texas oil shipments went out of the port of Brownsville to Hitler's Koch-built refineries in Germany. Had World War II started in 1933 instead of 1940, it may have saved Kirby's declining lumber business, but he had already made his fortunes. Nonetheless, he struck back at FDR by organizing the Southern Committee for Upholding the U.S. Constitution, a name that camouflages the bigoted nature of the committee's values as well as the groups primary funding source....the DuPont family... whose munition and chemical sales were always improved by raw conflict, civil disputes and cross-border warfare. Tucked as their factories were along the Texas bayous they were close to Houston's petroleum refineries, Beaumont's port and the Spindletop field further inland as well as to the world's largest sulfur dome at Freeport....an essential ingredient in gun powder. Texas became synonymous with the "arsenal of freedom"....but whose?
"What Perry is hopeful of doing is jettisoning those parts of the United States that aren't able to pull their own weight. States where the best principles of Darwinian economics have not been allowed to take root and grow because of the heavy hand of the GOP's legacy of runaway Federalism that shifted to the Democrats and which in time was appropriated by well-meaning but misguided leadership across the board...misguided in Perry's opinion... as was Henry Ford or Charles Lindberg, or Harvey Firestone, or the other American capitalists who hated FDR and would have employed General Smedley Butler to remove him by force in an America coup d'etat. So Perry will work like any good fight promoter to control both corners while making money off of the ticket sales and concessions while the two idiots in the ring bludgeon each other," said Walker.
I asked Mr. Walker "who, then, is really controlling the 'corners' in America's political battles if it is not sincere Replicans and sincere Democrats?"
"As with Lincoln who worked for the railroad companies, it's the big boys," said Walker.
"Who are the big boys?" I asked Walker.
"Ask Obama whose wife worked for Mary Todd Lincoln's Republican Springfield, Illinois law firm," said Walker. "Ask Shiela Jackson Lee. Ask her Yale educated husband," said Walker.
