GOP ban drugs from Canada but O.K with trade with fascist China
Why is the state of Florida throwing citizens off the voting rolls? Is it to repeat the presidential election of 2000, where Bush barely beat Gore by a few hundred votes? The fact is, the state of Florida has a history of kicking out alleged non-citizen and felon voters. Citizens who have voted for decades, including a 91 year old WWII veteran named Bill Internicol, have received letters stating that they have a limited time to prove that they are citizens, if they wants to exercise their vote.
Also, Republicans once again blocked in Congress the ability of Americans to buy prescription drugs from Canada. This is ironic, because they are the political party that is the biggest defender with trading ties with the fascist regime in China. (Yes, in reality it is fascist now and not really communist) Well, if you want to know the reasons why, it is the money, of course.
The drug companies in the U.S. give Republicans money so Americans can't buy drugs from Canada. So much for free markets. Now, other corporate interests give Republicans money to weaken trade rules to export cheap goods to the U.S. The result is higher drug prices in the U.S. and huge profits for companies that rely upon sweatshop Chinese labor to make cheap products. Such as WalMart.
In the meantime some money finds its' way to help fund the Chinese military, but that's O.K., because it allows the Congress to rationalize voting for ever more expensive military weapons while receiving millions in defense contractor dollars.
Of course, the trade with China also depresses U.S. wages and hurts unions, but that is just icing on the cake, because unions are one of the few groups that give money to the Democratic Party. So when Republicans talk about being the party of family values, they have a strange way of showing it.
