Economic Warfare With China – We Will Know for Sure When They Start Funding Our Unions
Okay so, not long ago, there was an individual who started a dummy corporation, and donated $1 million to Mitt Romney's presidential campaign for 2012. Immediately the contribution came under fire by Democrats, claiming foul play. However, the way I see it is that the Democrats are living in hypocrisy, because there have been far more questionable contributions coming from their side of the aisle in recent years than one could ever hope to explain in a single article.
Further, several Democratic politicians in the last couple of elections have received contributions from foreign corporations, governments, and citizens to the tune of multimillion dollars, much of which was unaccounted for. Then there have been the unions which have sponsored their own ads, and George Soros with his MoveOn dot org group, running ads on behalf of Barack Obama. We know George Soros promised to spend his own money to defeat George Bush during his midterm elections, but George Soros didn't stop there, even though President Bush was no longer running for office.
Overall, I think I'd be more concerned with foreign governments funding our politicians than I ever would be a US wealthy citizen donating their own personal money to a presidential candidate. In fact, it has occurred to me that if anyone truly wanted to do the United States of America long-term damage that they would merely fund Democratic candidates. Further, I would submit to you that if China ever wanted to defeat the United States that it would be wise to do so economically, not militarily.
To do this, you could expect them to perhaps fund our unions and union political action committees, which would in turn would allow unions to become more powerful thus, forcing more US corporations offshore, and to other nations. This would severely hurt our manufacturing sector, and give China the advantage, which it could use to increase its economic inflows from an unbalanced trade playing field. Now then, with that said if we ever noticed that China is secretly funding as our union's leadership or democratic party or socialist type candidates then we will know that we are at full-scale economic warfare with China.
After all, the unions will support Democratic candidates and promote socialist agendas, and further hamper our free market capitalist economy here, therefore making us weak. It is interesting that the Democrats will take money from foreign sources, but then condemn Republican candidates for taking campaign contributions from corporate donors, and wealthy individuals that own those companies. If we really want to have campaign reform, then we need to knock off the hypocrisy coming from the socialist neoliberal side of the aisle. Please consider all this and think on it.
