The whole thing is worth a read, but one paragraph stands out
Republicans, because of the lions without any courage Democrats, have been able to walk through the Heartland of America and convince people that if they want to succeed they have to sell themselves to business. Now, this is not intended to be a Marxist docrtine, but its the truth. Where were the Democrats? Why weren’t we out there telling people that the purpose of business is to provide for them, not vice versa. Business should work for us. That was the point of Unions; to get business to work for us. The more money each and every person, not just the wealthy have, the more they can buy. The more people buy, the more businesses can hire and the more products they can make.
This is why Bill Clinton was a great President, and how the current Democratic Party is letting him down.
Bill Clinton’s greatest achievement was cementing pro-business pro-growth policies as American policies, and breaking open doors for globalization. Under Clinton we achieved the North American Free Trade Agreement and the World Trade Organization, all with low spending and balanced budgets. Mistakes were made, some of them quite severe, but it is hard to quibble with President Clinton’s handling of the economy.
Thank God in the 1990s we had WJC instead of FDR as President. Roosevelt was a terrible president. Inaugerated before Hitler took power, he fiddled while fascism rose in Europe and Asia. Responsible for the Great Depression (it ended in 1932, until his increasingly insane policies restarted it worse than ever), it only ended when we enslaved (drafted) and/or killed-off our excess labor pool in World War II.
Besides (like the Republicans) mostly ignoring al-Qaeda, Clinton’s other legacy is the rise of morality in politics. After Clinton we have two modern and responsible political parties that agree on most economic matters. This leaves only the War and social issues as fields where the electorate can hope to influence party. The electorate is hateful of terrorists, suspicious of gays, and disgusted by late term abortions. Guess which party this helps?
