Who Is America Being Run For?

The vast majority of Americans, just as with the vast majority of people always and everywhere, depend on the value of their labor as their sole financial resource, regardless of skill level.

What then are we to make of the policies of the United States, wherein the Republicans champion the "out-sourcing" of manufacturing jobs to the most oppressed workers around the world, above all to those most oppressed workers of all, in "Communist" China, while the Democrats champion throwing down the Southern border to millions of illegal immigrant workers, to take the service jobs that are left?

Such policies do not even make sense from a plutocratic point of view, since American working-people are the "consumers" on whose confidence and buying-power corporate sales, profits, dividends and capital gains depend.

They don't need our labor and they don't need our consumption either. As Cramer remarked the other day, there is no reason to locate plant and equipment in the U.S. anymore because the growth now is all overseas. And the politicians, apparently, don't need our votes either, since they only listen to lobbyists. The basic message to the little people is; WE DON'T NEED YOU ANYMORE!

Then why do people keep voting for the "two" "Parties" in question, since both are plainly Corporate Plutocratic Parties (or even just the Republican and Democratic wings of the Corporate Plutocratic Party, with the pretense of alternative being just another deception), inimical to the American people?

It's baffling, annoying, even outraging.

Even the American "Libertarian Party" seems just as if not even more prone to run with Big Money--"out-sourcing"? importing immigrant labor? all fine by them, and any attempt at prevention or remediation greeted with cries of "Statism!"

It seems to me that we need a real Labor Party in the US.

And not a fake Labor Party like the Democratic Party in the US or the Labour Party in the UK.

And a Labor Party that explicitly takes all the measures anyone can think of to prevent or remedy the plutocratic subversion that has overtaken the American Democratic and British Labour Parties.
