The real reason the GOP is shying away from implementing their policies after ATLEAST a decade of opposition party tactics where the GOP pushes all of
these crazy policies that sound good, but upon any closer inspection reveals would be a total disaster.. is because they have been talking horse crap
for the past few decades. They were just playing to the "I shouldn't have to pay for that " crowd. While knowing the actual ramifications of that
would be devestating???
Let's play out the normal republican schtick shall we???
First off I think we need to point out the automation thing...
Every second it takes less humans to do the amount of work required to keep all of humanity fed, clothed and entertained.
And the only expanding industry that actually requires real life people is like you tube type content. Everything else is shrinking to oblivion..
Servers/cashiers get replaced by kiosks.
Truck drivers will be replaced by self driving cars ..
Hell even holly wood is using more and more cgi..
Exc, exc, exc..
Period for all of human history, every advancement in technology meant it took less humans to do the same job. This was always going to reach a
tipping point where the number of humans required, was only a fraction of our total population.
Ok so to the actual republiccan talking points..
1) Big cuts to welfare...
Ok so less and less jobs, and not just that, but jobs that pay less and less and less help from the gov sector..
So by any measure you have more and more poor people that are poorer and poorer. Which ALWAYS leads to more crime and more damaged people..
2) kill obama care and stop the subsidies..
Even the republicans admit that premiums will not go down.. we are the last modern country allowing insurance companies to take a huge cut off the top
when they are only middle men who do not preform a medical function. The insurance companies know their days are numbered and will be milking the
system for everything WE are worth.
3) deregulate big buisness and they will pay more.
Why??? Paying more to your employees isn't profitable.. paying them the very least you possibly can is more profitable.. and that isn't even
considering automation marking ALL jobs fewer and farther between.
The GOP's publicly stated agenda will be a disaster that would fall 100% at their feet..
All their blow hard policy positions in real life would create countless poor, watch countless sick die and possible even have people starving in the
Honestly, I am all for it...
We will never have the political will to go single payer or establish a universal salary, without a whole lot of pain...
You'll need prob half the country to be uninsured and 60% unemployment and the fastest way to that. Is letting the GOP have their way.
Or I guess have them actually admit they were talking nonsense and them "do the right thing" but I doubt it..
If anyone knows of another way where 51+ percent of the population activate and take action, I would love to hear it, but I'm betting we have to let
it get soooo bad, there is no other option.. and the only way to do that, is for trump and the GOP to get their way..
