13. Republican policies DO work. They just aren't honest about their goals.

Their goals are to put as much money and power in the hands of the already wealthy as possible. There are not interested in upwatd mobility fir the folks at the bottom. They NEED a large slave base to work at the shitty jobs that pay shitty wages for their megacorporations, whether it's Walmart or some hell-on-earth coal mine.

They're anti-abortion because they know that poor women will not be able to travel to obtain a safe, legal abortion, so they'll just have another child to grow up in poverty. That poor kid will grow up to work in another shitty low paying job, go into the military, or end up in a for profit prison.

They say they're against illegal immigration, but do NOTHING to the employers who hire undocumented workers. Face it, who would be picking tomatoes, processing 10 chickens a minute in Arkansas or scrubbing toilets in Trump hotels. They may not like those brown faces, but they know we need them to do the shitty, low paying, often seasonal work that American citizens simply refuse to do.

In "Brave New World" all people were in classes based on their biology; Alphas were at the top and the semi-retarded slave class, the Epsilons, were at the bottom. When they didn't have enough Epsilons THEY JUST MADE MORE.
