There’s an emerging new message coming from the GOP and that message is that the United States should give up and just become China. This is coming from the field of Republican Presidential contenders.
Michele Bachmann seems to have started this, when she proclaimed our country should be more like China on social-economical issues. Now we have Newt Gingrich saying that our child labor laws are “stupid”. He seems more intent on us having the child labor laws of China, which is to say none.
It’s really amazing to see America’s right embrace the type of governance we see in one of the few remaining communist countries on the planet. Could you imagine this embrace during the Reagan years, not to mention the time of Joe McCarthy?
I am just waiting now for someone in the media to actually call these Republicans out for their new found love of communism. If this was a Democratic candidate saying this stuff, the “liberal media” would instantly label them as commies. Perhaps it’s time they show the same for the right?
