A Nation of Bystanders

Pat Buchanan on the decade of discontent (the first decade of our century of discontent.)


Hunter Wallace aka Prozium on the going backward decade:


Paul Krugman who advocates everything that causes our decline, third world immigration, foreign students, know-how transfer, disloyalty to whites, amnesty, free trade, and bailouts.  “The Big Zero”.  Krugman projecting again.


Some of the data of our discontent and demise is linked to from the following article


Men’s median wages are the same as in 1973. See graph page 19:


Women’s wages increased relative to men’s from 1960 to 1990 but then slowed in convergence. That was when Bush Sr put legal immigration up to 1 million per year which also increased illegal plus births from 1965 immigration were now a factor so that women’s progress in wage parity stopped. The line slows down quite abruptly around 1990.

Productivity per hour doubled over the period 1973 to 2007 roughly.

    Buchanan puts the hammer to the nail yet again. I encourage people to remember Pat, and to donate once in a while to that tip jar he has on his site. He’s been more consistent in getting the word out than any other conservative over the decades.

    Free trade has been a joke for us. It was sold to us as free trade with Europe and Japan, countries that do not indulge in sweatshop-underage labor. All its done is deindustrialize the USA. If our professions and MBA’s were beholden to free trade, they’d be even more decimated than labor is.

    If we could just -win- the GOP nomination once, I think we’d win another election. Thats why I was so personally dispirited when Juan McCain (via Huckabee) won the GOP primary last time out. The trad-cons (like me) are losing chances demographically do defeat the neo-libs and neo-cons at the ballot box as the demographic transformation keeps lurching forward. Ive tried to tell every pal who would hold still long enough since about 1995 what is going on, and Ive been able to convert plenty of them to the trad-con point of view. But we haven’t been able to field a trad-con candidate since that time. Reagan was the last one in my opinion. Its definitely dissapointing.

    Great summary. Keep up the work of persuasion. Now may be the time that it works.

  3. Nice post. Advocates also assured us free trade would lead to a reduction in immigration to the US, since more jobs would be available in the new factories in the developing world. Instead, not only has the US de-industrialized (meaning lost jobs), but immigration has increased dramatically. The White working class is being crushed.
