    Reagan supposedly defeated communism.

    Then

    America shipped its manufacturing jobs to Communist China.

    Now

    China is the world's fastest growing economy, and the American economy has been shrinking.

    By focusing on Soviet Communism, Reagan seems to have "defeated" a paper tiger.

    What explains the success of China's State Controlled economy?

    The greatest partner of Walmart, America's largest employer, is Communist China. Walmart is one of the largest supporters of the Republican Party and it is responsible for the largest shift of manufacturing jobs to a communist, state run economy. (This is where the GOP gets its money. Does Hannity ever mention this?)

    Does Rightwing Talk Radio ever talk about the success of China's planned economy?

    If not, why?

    Are Republican voters informed about China, or are they in a perpetual bubble where Reagan defeated a paper tiger?

    ... as the real State run economy took over the globe.

    (Wow, just wow. Is talk radio that strong)

    Most of the workers there make $1 a day. Some lucky ones make $1 per hour. So when are you moving there?

    China's economy is becoming less regulated. The US's economy is becoming more regulated. There's your answer.

    Exactly.

    American business sold out the American worker so they could get labor at $1 a day.

    Republicans tell us about the war on business.

    It's bullshit. Business has been given complete freedom to harvest sweat shop labor - and they've been doing it ever since Reagan.

    The real war is the one waged by business against the American worker.

    People wonder where the jobs went.

    They went to China for one dollar a day.

    Where do the extra profits go?

    (you know profits I'm talking about, right? -I'm talking about the profits made when Mitt Romney's glorious American Business sells the American worker down river so it can take advantage of sweat shop labor...)

    Those profits go to Talk Radio and Fox News in order to distract the morons with tales of socialism.

    Morons.

    Big business sold the American worker down river so they could get in bed with communists.

    Capitalism loves communist China.

    Free market?

    (morons)

    American workers were betrayed by free market dogmatists who had exploding head syndrome at the mere mention of protectionism. I am thinking particularly of the treasonous US chamber of commerce and their political puppets.
