Catfish Treason. A report on NBC Nitely News this evening about American catfish farmers being put out of business indicates that the United States Government is at least passively conniving with Communist China and Vietnam to destroy the American catfish farming industry. Why? When did the U.S. Government come to regard the people of Communist China and Communist Vietnam as its first priority, above the interests of Americans? And HOW did this happen?
Republicans have long sided with impoverished Communist countries against Americans, in favoring absolutely unrestricted free trade in order to destroy unions, drive down wages, and strip away fringe benefits for American working people, all in the service of the rich, who are the only people the Republican Party truly cares a rat's ass about.
But why would Democrats side with Communist governments against Americans, and be more concerned about helping people in China or Vietnam than in Alabama or other places in the United States?
The United States is still, at least for the moment, sovereign. We have an absolute right to control our borders, and to exclude people, products, services, and economic competition from any other part of this planet as we may choose— any time we choose. What is the point of having such a right but leaving Americans open to endless, merciless economic attacks from foreigners? What is a border for? What is sovereignty for? What is a military for, if not to protect Americans? If our Government refuses to protect us economically, there is no point to having an enormous military that costs us a fortune and raises the costs of everything by taking money from productive activities to the worthless activity of a sham defense. If the Government will not protect us economically, it might as well abolish the military, because if we are destroyed economically, there will be nothing left to defend.
(The current U.S. military death toll in Iraq, according to the website "Iraq Coalition Casualties", is 4,436 — for Israel.)
