Neutered Newt Helped Cause the Economic Collapse

Update:  05/14/16
(I wrote this article about Newt Gingrich almost four years ago when he was running for President.  Now he is being considered as the Vice Presidential nominee under Donald Trump.  Newt is a communist jackass who was or still is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR).  It was Newt who was very instrumental in getting NAFTA passed in the Congress.  And Trump is considering this idiot?  This would be a litmus test in my mind to see if Trump is the real deal or if he is just another fake.)
 This is a good example about why the "new world order" psychos are planning our future as slaves and serfs.
     There was a big political debate in the early 1990s regarding NAFTA, GATT/WTO because these so-called "free trade" agreements were nothing more than a grand socialist scam.  In fact, you can find the term "free trade" in the Communist Manifesto.  What free trade really means is that free trade will never happen.  American companies who were burdened with high regulation in the United States would simply move their factories to other locations outside of this country causing severe unemployment.  Neutered Newt Gingrich and the "Government" was instrumental in emasculating this country's economy and now he wants to be President.  Other phoney conservatives like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, G. Gordon Liddy, Oliver North,  Michael Reagan, and many others were supporters of these trade agreements.  The power of conservative talk radio was used to push through this stupid agreement over the objections of millions of Americans who knew perfectly well that millions of jobs would be lost.  Limbaugh called us conspiracy "kooks".  Limbaugh was the kook.  And so if you like your unemployment situation, you can thank "conservative" talk radio.  The only conservative radio host that didn't support it was Michael Savage; if my memory serves me correctly.
     NAFTA was the first federal "law" or agreement I had ever read.  I couldn't believe it.  It was like Karl Marx wrote it from the grave.  It was so stupid, ignorant, and evil because it was a communist document that would destroy our economy.  Seeing these stupid bills pass was like watching our whole political system drink the Kool-Aid.   In fact, it hasn't done much good for Mexico either.
     Neutered Newt's NAFTA has emasculated manufacturing and agriculture, leaving more of a consumer economy.  The better setup for an economy is a strong manufacturing, agriculture, and consumer.  The United States was the strongest economy in the world, but now will wallow in decline, especially if this knucklehead becomes President.  Think about it.  Almost 42,000 manufacturing companies left the country leaving millions of people out of jobs.  Then, many of the small farms had to shut down because of unfair competition from Mexico and other countries.  With the high unemployment, consumerism took a big hit and the country is now in a big mess. Thank Neutered Newt, Bill Clinton, who are going around the country looking smart, but are in fact, very stupid.
     When I had my own factory, I produced products with the labor of my workers.  For example,
if I paid a worker $10.00 per hour I had additional costs; medical insurance, FICA, workman's compensation, and other expenses.  That could add up to about $15.00 per hour cost of producing our products.  At the time, I was quoted a price of around $2.00 to $3.00 per hour if I had my products made in Mexico.  If I took those same products to China to be produced, the price at that time was
.29  The economic incentive was to shift our manufacturing out of the country and send our workers home.  I didn't do it but it was tempting.
     Years ago, I really got pissed when I heard Hillary Clinton say that she can't be responsible for every under-capitalized company.  Well, if I could actually pay a worker .29 cents per hour, or even $2-3.00 per hour, I would be more competitive too.  At the time, the minimum wage was around $8.25 per hour.  American companies operating in the United States are operating under a major financial handicap and competitive disadvantage.
     The government, as we know it today, is completely useless, and if Republicans think that Neutered Newt is going to do a good job, just know that he is not capable of it.  He has a proven track record
of utter failure via NAFTA, GATT, and the WTO. He is a communist and as are all of the other "conservative" talk show hosts who supported these stupid trade agreements. Democracy is a system that ensures that the most stupid, evil, and insane politicians will occupy the seats of power, bringing destruction upon itself.  This is truly a kakistocracy which means a government by the worst people.
     In order to have a good economic recovery that produces good jobs, this country will have to restore what was taken.  Manufacturing and agricultural businesses will have to be restored.  If that doesn't happen, we will decline to a condition like we see in Zimbabwe.
     The only government that will work would be one which respects God's commandments.  Which would mean never allowing interest or usury to be used in our financial systems.
     There's not much more adversity this economy can take, and putting Neutered Newt as President will probably finish us off.  As for me, I would not vote for any of these people.  Just let it rot and start over.

  1. The main thing that bothered me about NAFTA was the way it was passed. Specifically, I'm referring to the House's involvement, and the simple majority mustered for passage.

    NAFTA, as far as I can tell, is a TREATY. What is a treaty? It is an agreement amongst two or more nations, is it not? Does that not constitute a good, solid definition of a treaty? I think it does. As such, does it not fall solely under the Senate's purview, per Article II, Sect. 2 of the Constitution? Does the House have, WRT the Constitution, any role to play with regard to treaties? No, it does not. However, this was never mentioned, let alone discussed, in the national media (I refuse to call them 'mainstream', because there's nothing mainstream about them).

    Secondly, when one reads Art. II Sect. 2 of the Constitution, it says that: 1) the Senate is to give 'advice & consent' to the President when it comes to treaties; 2) that 2/3 of the Senators present had to concur. Note that this does NOT say 1/2+1, a simple majority; it says 2/3! This was another problem with NAFTA's passage that was never, ever mentioned, let alone discussed, in the media-conservative or otherwise. If it were, I never heard it.

    Those are my humble thoughts. NAFTA was not passed in a proper, Constitutional manner. It was illegal because both houses of Congress were involved, whereas the Senate is the only part of the legislature that has purview WRT treaties. It was illegal because a simple majority in both houses passed it. Uh, whatever happened to the requirement that 2/3 of the senators concur?
