36. is it how Germany does it? I find your views kind of pretentious and also mistaken. but seems

 

we're getting to the point.

You're rather taken with the idea that "they're the employers".

As long as other countries can keep the profits and the economy going and still protect their workers, we should be able to also.

But not with Clintons. Not with Reagans. And not with their enablers either.

Obama reading books on Reagan being "the great transformer". Yeah. His talent was to take his vast charm and sell a bunch of cockamamie totally destructive ideas and for them to live thus far in perpetuity.

Did Obama do the same? Will the Clintons do the same? No, they will use their charm and political capital to shove the same imprisoning views down our throats.

It's a challenging time. Robotization and globalization are big, big challenges. Even the Internet has changed the way people do business and think of business. The model for making money has hardly a human equation. On the other hand, it better get one and also a solution for climate change, or we will continue to experience misery among a broad swath of the US population.
