Why the GOP Establishment Attacks Populist Movements
by Right Wing Fighter
The reason that the GOP establishment attacks populist movements, such as cutting immigration, sensible trade policy instead of the destructive free trade policies we have now, and such other common sense reforms will require a bit of explanation:
First, the mega-donors who basically control the GOP profit from such policies. Many of them have already made billions of dollars, such as Casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson. According to Forbes, Adelson is worth 22.5 billion dollars as of this posting [Forbes Profile of Sheldon Adelson >>Link<<]. Also according to the same link, he is 82 years old, and thus he presumably can’t ever find a way to spend all the money he has. Yet he is a materialist, and as such he values money he can’t even use more than the lives of Americans that he damages by the policies he bankrolls. Thus he bankrolls GOP candidates, for president and Congress, who will support amnesty because more workers means cheaper workers, which will cut his expenses. Does this put Americans out of work? Does it hurt blue-collar families who are making 50k a year? Adelson doesn’t care: he has money to get after all, who cares who gets hurt?
Second, said mega-donors like Adelson donate millions of dollars to candidates to help them win. Most candidates don’t have any actual appeal, and thus they depend on donors like Adelson to buy them their ticket to the D.C. dance. Having bought the ticket, they have to dance to his tune, if they want his money backing them at the next election. Since they combine ambition with inability, they depend on him for their daily bread, and are thus entirely at his command for as long as they want to stay in office. This is why the GOP pursues politically suicidal policies like amnesty, which the American people hate: because the donors who hold the lifeline to their political lives want it.
This is the circle of corruption that controls Washington. This is why a poll from six years ago by CNN found that 86% of people polled thought that the government was broken [CNN Poll: Majority thinks government is broken >>Link<<] They think it because it is. They think it because they see that both parties want to hand away their best interests to help them maintain political control. One example, is that the Democrats, ignoring the criminality and civilizational backwardness of many immigrants coming to the United States, want to increase our already enormous amount of immigration so that they can get more voters. And the GOP, on the other hand, wants more immigration because that is what mega-donors want. It is no wonder that the American people think their government is broken: it is.
Now, this is not a recipe for despair, nor is it justification for despair. It is a call to retake the government by electing populist candidates who stand for the American people. It is a call to state, boldly and often, that the purpose of the U.S. government is to serve the people, and not a handful of special interests at the expense of the people, be those interests political parties or mega-donors. It is a call to fight and win at the ballot box, and to save the interests of the American people.
The opening line of the U.S. Constitution begins thus:
We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
This is the purpose of our government. It is to look after the interests of the people of the country, not those of the few at the expense of the many. It is to look after the interests of everyone. This is what must and will be reformed.
