Part two of this series show in some detail that Obama’s governance is following Cloward and Piven’s plan to collapse the government through the destruction of the economy through free trade agreements. Nothing short of a miracle can save this country from economic destruction.

America Is Dumber Than a Box of Rocks

Recently, I conducted an survey of a cross-section of Americans in which I asked the following two questions:

(1) Please describe the two key elements of a free trade agreement .

In my rubric, the correct answer would have included (1) the owners of manufacturing relocate their factories in foreign cheap labor markets; (2) the owners of manufacturing are able to ship their foreign goods back into America duty free (i.e. without tariffs).

(2) Describe one group who wins and one group who loses as a result of free trade agreements.

In the rubric, the correct answer would have identified the winner as the owners of the means of production who take advantage of the fact that tariffs do not apply to them and they have dramatically lowered their labor costs as a result. Respondents should have identified the loser in a free trade agreement as the person who loses their job in the because of the growth of cheap, foreign labor.

The Results Demonstrate Abject Ignorance
