The Expansionist

Not Strong Enuf, Not Targeted Enuf — Not Patriotic / Xenophobic Enuf. Keith Olbermann on MSNBC's Countdown last nite pointed out a new, grave problem in American democracy: the influence of unregulated foreign money in trying to buy American elections. His guest, a union spokesman (Leo Gerard of the United Steelworkers of America — not of India, China, nor any other place), put the lie to the Chamber of Commerce's shameless, brazen lie that unions outspend businesses in U.S. campaigns — the actual figure, Gerard, said, is that corporations and the Chamber outspend unions 20:1! But neither K.O. nor his guest said what needed to be said: that this is an attack not just on our democracy but also on our SOVEREIGNTY.
These corporations are violating our borders fully as much as, and with even more disregard for the interests of Americans than are, illegal aliens flooding across our borders. This is an invasion by illegal MONEY, foreign corporations, including corporations owned by the government of Communist China, designed to give foreigners VOTES in American elections. Even uneducated Southern rednecks should be able to see the impropriety of foreigners essentially voting in our elections. The same people who are indignant about illegal aliens taking American jobs at home, and who would be infuriated if the Government allowed noncitizens to vote, can be made LIVID by the thought of foreigners being given the equivalent of the vote in being permitted to brainwash voters thru hundreds of millions of dollars being infiltrated past out borders by foreign corporations and governments.
Curiously, Mr. Gerard spoke with what sounded to me plainly like a Canadian accent. And I am quite familiar with Canadian speech. If there is one country that is specially privileged with regard to access to the U.S., but shouldn't be, it's Canada, which long ago should have joined the Union. Can anyone doubt that if Canada were part of the United States, the Republican Party would have to moderate hugely, or go out of existence as an electoral party of consequence in the expanded, "new and improved" United States?
I looked up Leo Gerard on Wikipedia and found that he is indeed CANADIAN! Wikipedia says, "Gerard was still a Canadian citizen as of January 2009." This is yet another example of how foreigners are given the very best jobs in the United States!
How on EARTH can Keith Olbermann put a CANADIAN on to speak about protecting the UNITED STATES? It's absurd, and outrageous. Deport the bastard back to his beloved Canada, and NEVER put him forward as a spokesman for U.S. interests again.
Democrats should not remotely be on the defensive this Congressional-elections year. Dems should make very plain that Democrats = Made in America; Republicans = Made in China.
(The current U.S. military death toll in Iraq, according to the website "Iraq Coalition Casualties", is 4,425 — for Israel.)
