Things have never been better for corporations and their CEOs.. They have more money in reserve than they ever had. Why shouldn’t they use their power and influence to make sure things stay the way they are? This means for working people: contract and “consultant” work instead of collective bargaining, no defined pensions and 401ks dependent on the whimseys of the stock market, widening wealth gap, crushing student and consumer debt, mortgages with little or no equity, inflation, etc.. International corporations set up in China could care less about U.S. Supreme Court decisions e.g. Affirmative action, quotas, equal pay for equal work, workplace safety, environmental concerns, etc. Internationalization is an effective device to get around these constraints. Indian and Chinese economists and politicians have already stated the U.S. workforce will have to “adjust” their demands to the exigencies of the world marketplace. Why should international corporations be concerned with maintaining a standard of living inside the U.S.?

The elites, the 1%, who control the international fascist collective, have never had it so good. Why should the people who own both parties and all the politicians want these trends to change? It doesn’t matter who wins the election. Elections are for poor people.
