Today is Labor Day.
While most Americans simply view Labor Day as the end of the American Summer, it is a leftist holiday designed to celebrate socialism. Fortunately most Americans just ignore that and take in one last summer weekend before the fall starts.
But as Labor Day hits this year, the Republicans, at least some of them, are getting a clue. They are finally figuring out one of the foundations of the GOP isn’t such a good idea. They are also discovering a path to a real GOP majority.
What is this revelation?
The GOP has traditionally worshiped at the altar of big business. The theory the GOP operated under was, if it is good for big business, it is good for America.
The Republican Party overlooked the slow metamorphosis of big business from being a solid bastion of Republicanism into a leftist coalition funding the modern left wing movement.
Big business has demanded amnesty for the last twenty years. After all, payroll is the largest single expense any business has and if the market can be flooded with cheap labor, that will drive down payroll costs.
Like Pavlov’s dog, the GOP immediately slobbered every time big business said amnesty. The Party leadership ignored the long term consequences of amnesty, namely giving the Democrats a permanent majority. They also ignored the short term consequences, namely angering the conservative base.
Now, on this Labor Day, the GOP seems to be waking up to the idea they have it wrong.
Senator Jeff Sessions, Congressman Steve King and others are pointing out the obvious. Slavish devotion to big business in general and to big business’ insane demand for amnesty is suicide. If the GOP reaches out in a populist manner to American workers to fight against amnesty so American workers will have jobs, they will win.
Despite the Obama Regime cooking the books for the unemployment rate, the underlying numbers do not lie. 92 million Americans are out of the work force. This is a record number. The only job creation that is going on in America right now are jobs that go to immigrants, illegal and otherwise.
Despite the fact illegal immigration will hurt their members, almost every labor union supports amnesty. After all, the left wing agenda is far more important that supporting working Americans who are union members.
If the Republican leadership is smart, and that is assuming facts not in evidence, they will oppose amnesty and support American workers over illegal immigrants.
In 1980, Ronald Reagan won by winning over so-called “Reagan Democrats.” The blueprint exists. Republicans can win by reaching out American workers who have been crushed by the Great Obama Depression and who will be wiped out by Amnesty.
This is the GOP path to majority.
Will the Republicans be smart enough to follow it?
