And by “far to the right” I mean all the way past our current corptocracy straight into fascism… ”fascists seek to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy… Fascists believe that a nation is an organic community that requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong… Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the fascist state and the fascist movement..” Wiki
The new fascist party in America is the bi-partisan Neoliberal Party; the one party that everyone knows is running both the republicans and the democrats. They are the Neocons, they are the New Dems and the DLC.
Austan Goolsbee, a University of Chicago economist known for his centrist, free-trade views… has advocated for an automated tax system, in which the I.R.S. sends taxpayers a document informing them how much they owe rather than a blank tax form…. and a senior economist for the Progressive Policy Institute and the Democratic Leadership Council.” New York Times
At a 2008 McKinsey Executive Roundtable Series in International Economics held at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), Austan Goolsbee starts off his portion of the roundtable discussion thanking the members for bringing him back to CFR since he used to work there.
“Can I first say I am delighted to be back at the Council on Foreign Relations? I did actually have the privilege of working here and there is nothing like a presidential campaign to make that look like a good job.” Austan Goolsbee, 2008 CFR website
That’s an interesting discussion actually because Goolsbee lays out his support for the TARP bill, otherwise known as the banker bailout swindle that put hundreds of billions of dollars in the pockets of the wealthy banking elite and their CEOs but did nothing to help Main Street as the banks still refused to ease credit restrictions and get the economy back on the right track… like they were supposed to do with the trillions of our dollars the government gave them for wrecking the economy.
