Thanks to the Republican Party, Corporate America got it all (by none other than Pat Buchanan)

The Fortune 500 wanted to close factories in the USA and ship production abroad where unions did not exist, regulations were light, taxes were low, and wages were a fraction of what they were here in America.

Corporate America was going global and wanted to be rid of its American workforce, the best paid on earth, and replace it with cheap foreign labor.

While manufacturing sought to move production abroad, hotels, motels, bars, restaurants, farms and construction companies that could not move abroad also wanted to replace their expensive American workers.

1. What the hell?

This is the same Republican Party he was a part of, supported and was enriched by? Your Honor, I had no idea this bootlegging operation I was a part of was bringing alcohol into the city.

3. Pat's always been a bit confused

He wants his mythical America of the past without acknowledging that it was built on economic policies he despises and without realizing that its elites hated people with his last name.

4. Pat's solution: stop ALL immigration and "NAFTA, GATT, fast track and mass immigration (again)".

What was wildly wonderful for Corporate America was hell on Middle America. But the Republican Party had made its choice. It had sold its soul to the multinationals. And as it went along with NAFTA, GATT, fast track and mass immigration, to appease Corporate America, it lost Middle America.

The party went with the folks who paid for their campaigns, only to lose the folks who had given them their landslides.

When Republicans accede to the demand for amnesty, and immigration without end, it does not take a political genius to see what is going to happen. For it is happening now.

Almost all of those breaking our laws, crossing the border, and overstaying their visas are young, poor or working class. Between 80 and 90 percent are from Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Latin America. They are Third World peoples. (You can figure out what color they are not.) They believe in government action and government programs that provide their families with free education, health care, housing, food, and income subsidies. They are not Bob Taft or Barry Goldwater conservatives.

Sounds like the 2012 Texas GOP party platform.
