The Hillary-GOP-KKK Connection: How The Clinton's Helped Move The Nation Towards Right Wing Policies & Racism


First off, Nixon was a known racist. Henry Kissinger was his right hand. Henry Kissinger and the Clintons are family friends.

Nixon wasn't ONLY a racist he also set GOP policy for the last 3 decades.

Nixon’s bigger crime: Southern strategy 
What Is the Southern Strategy?
Salon on The Southern Strategy

Extract about the Nixon Administration:
Monday night, Rachel Maddow brought us a segment on audio diaries kept by H.R. “Bob” Haldeman, which were recently released by the Nixon Presidential Library. At first, we were ready for another story about the Nixon administration’s penchant for backbiting and sliminess, and there’s definitely some of that — Haldeman casually mentions that Robert Byrd’s past as a KKK member actually weighed in his favor as a possible Supreme Court nominee —

What kind of KKK style strategy did Nixon start? The kind of strategy Hillary was using when she was promoting her 'put the black super predators in prison' crime bill. To understand how the GOP and the Clinton's have been using racist code talk to do standard pro-KKK stuff while acting like they are not racists (as it's considered to be inappropriate in society outside of thier circles) you need to listen to this interview of a white supremacist explaining to white politicians what code words and tactics will work in thier electioneering etc;

Exclusive: Lee Atwater’s Infamous 1981 Interview on the Southern Strategy 

Going deeper;

First off, it's no secret that America was founded on White Supremacy. When all men are declared "equal" and slavery continue for a hundred years after that one can't say the Founding Father meant black people OR women (who began to get thier freedom in the early 1900s with the first women colleges). When the ancient Presidents declared "manifest destiny" as their right to commit genocide the die of racism and genocide - as foreign policy - was cast. Much happened since then but skipping to our current crisis. (proofs below)

To recap: Nixon started standard KKK style racism as normal GOP policy (but it was probably just a continuation, in a new form, of a very important part of the American heart & soul i.e. persecuting colored people as per thier KKK psychological roots). Reagan followed his policies of racism. Clinton's planned their whole 1996 election campaign of matching standard GOP racist tactics. Bush and Cheney, well, do I really need to say anything about them? GOP & Fox News strategy is pretty obvious now, it's just it's origins and connections through the years thats avoided in the media (so far). Then there is Obama. The guy who cried over white kids getting shot in the US while bombing little kids abroad (it was probably Hillary - as her bombing policies correspond to Kissinger philosophy of genocide as foreign policy - but he's taking her side so far so he's game... since the guy stopping excessive mass murder won't be around in a Clinton Presidency as he'll be retired i.e. Obama).

Yahoo: Study: The KKK helped Republicans win the South

In 1960, the American South mostly voted for Democratic candidates and was solidly Democratic at the congressional level. By 2000, it was solidly Republican in presidential politics and mostly Republican at the congressional level. The transformation, clearly, had something to do with race and the Civil Rights Movement. But a provocative new paper suggests that Ku Klux Klan activity — as opposed to the broader phenomenon of racism — played a small but meaningful role in the process. Counties with more Klan activity saw a more dramatic shift toward the GOP, a shift that stands up to a range of reasonable statistical controls and suggests that the Klan was really a difference maker.

5. Transcript extract - Nov 2014

John McCain was pledging, basically, that if he were president, the
United States would act as if we were Georgia. We, America, would go to
war with Russia on behalf of this other country.
And at the time that John McCain presidential candidate was pledging a
war with Russia because we are all Georgians now, at the time that he was
doing that, the lobbying firm of his top foreign policy adviser Randy
Scheunemann had just been hired and put on the payroll by the nation of
Georgia. That`s the one time you might remember Randy Scheunemann. The
guy whose lobbying fee is very easily -- might have gotten the United
States military into a shooting war with Russia.
But McCain did not win the presidency and Randy Scheunemann went back
to a standard Washington foreign policy guy. And you don`t hear much about
him anymore. You haven`t heard much about him since then -- until this
Until this week, a really, really weird story about Randy Scheunemann
was broken by "The Daily Beast". It turns out, Randy Scheunemann belongs
to a private skiing club in Montana. I did not know there was such a thing
as a private skiing club. I thought like, you know, you buy a lift ticket,
then you go ski on a mountain with other people who are skiing on the
mountain and that`s skiing.
I -- apparently, there are places you can do it privately without the
riffraff and Randy Scheunemann apparently belongs to one of those. And on
the ski left, at his private skiing lift, "The Daily Beast" and a number of
other outlets now report that Randy Scheunemann got into a fight. He got
into a fight on the ski lift with a white supremacist, specifically with
this guy, who is sort of America`s foremost white supremacist.
This is a guy named Richard Spencer. He was recently forcibly
deported from Budapest when he tried to organize and international white
supremacist conference and the nation of Hungary caught him trying to sneak
into their country even though they had banned him. He calls for the
creation of a white homeland. He runs an organization called the National
Policy Institute, to try to advance the goal of a white homeland. His
group is based in Whitefish, Montana.
He`s also founded a few online white supremacist magazines and Web
sites, including this one which is called Alternative Right.
And apparently making a career as a white supremacist leader these
days is a pretty remunerative thing. At least the dude is making enough
money to belong to the same private ski club that Randy Scheunemann does in
Montana. Who even knew there were private ski clubs? Anyway, there are.
And apparently, the two of them got on a fight on the ski lift.
Insults were exchanged, punches were threatened. And the reason it 
all broke in the news this week is that private ski club in Montana, it`s 
called the Big Mountain Club, they apparently in this fight between two of 
their members felt they had to decide between them, which of these two guys 
was going to be allowed to stay as a member of their private ski club. 
Randy Scheunemann, Washington policy adviser guy, adviser to John McCain, 
or the Aryan Nation white supremacist guy who is trying to build a homeland 
for the endangered white race from his home base in Montana.
The Big Mountain Club in Whitefish, Montana, decided they`d go with 
the white supremacist. They kicked Randy Scheunemann out and kept the Ku 
Klux other guy, yes!

For Perry, Texas Roots Include Racial Backdrop

Gov. Rick Perry of Texas, who often waxes nostalgic about his small-town roots, grew up in an almost all-white rural area where many referred to slingshots as “niggershooters.” One elderly black resident recalls being introduced by her boss at a party decades back as “my maid, Nigger Mae Lou,” while just four years ago, a black high school student found a noose in his locker.
In 1968, Mr. Perry left home for Texas A&M, a deeply conservative university whose yearbooks early in the century included Ku Klux Klan-robed students and a dairy group called the Kream and Kow Klub. The school, having just graduated its first two black undergraduates, was in the early throes of desegregation; at the end of Mr. Perry’s four years there, blacks still made up less than 1 percent of the student body.
By the time he inherited the governorship from George W. Bush in 2000, Mr. Perry appeared to have moved well beyond his racially sheltered background.

Lifting the Hood Off Rick Perry: Was His Family In The Ku Klux Klan?

Salon: The case against Hillary Clinton: This is the disaster Democrats must avoid She's not the candidate of economic fairness, peace or a genuine progressive agenda. She's also not more electable

When it comes to the poorer end of the economic spectrum, we can rewind to Clinton’s time as first lady—or “co-president” as some called her—for more background. Recently Michelle Alexander noted that “Hillary wasn’t picking out china while she was first lady. She bravely broke the mold and redefined that job in ways no woman ever had before. She not only campaigned for Bill; she also wielded power and significant influence once he was elected, lobbying for legislation and other measures.”
Arguing that the Clintons decimated black America, Alexander offers a stunning anecdote:
In [Hillary’s] support for the 1994 crime bill, for example, she used racially coded rhetoric to cast black children as animals. “They are not just gangs of kids anymore,” she said. “They are often the kinds of kids that are called ‘super-predators.’ No conscience, no empathy. We can talk about why they ended up that way, but first we have to bring them to heel.”
When the Clintons left the White House in 2001, with the War on Crime and War on Drugs by then entrenched public policy, the United States had the highest rate of incarceration in the world. “Human Rights Watch reported that in seven states, African Americans constituted 80 to 90 percent of all drug offenders sent to prison, even though they were no more likely than whites to use or sell illegal drugs,” Alexander explains. She follows this with one of the clearest summaries of Clinton-era welfare reform:
The federal safety net for poor families was torn to shreds by the Clinton administration in its effort to “end welfare as we know it.” In his 1996 State of the Union address, given during his re-election campaign, Clinton declared that ‘the era of big government is over’ and immediately sought to prove it by dismantling the federal welfare system known as Aid to Families With Dependent Children (AFDC). The welfare-reform legislation that he signed—which Hillary Clinton ardently supported then and characterized as a success as recently as 2008—replaced the federal safety net with a block grant to the states, imposed a five-year lifetime limit on welfare assistance, added work requirements, barred undocumented immigrants from licensed professions, and slashed overall public welfare funding by $54 billion (some was later restored).
Experts and pundits disagree about the true impact of welfare reform, but one thing seems clear: Extreme poverty doubled to 1.5 million in the decade and a half after the law was passed.
Many Hillary supporters argue that it’s unfair to judge her by Bill’s work as president. But even aside from her active engagement on these issues as first lady, it seems naive to imagine that she would somehow represent a significant break from this history. Hillary Clinton is more Wal-Mart board member and less friend to labor.
Hillary Abroad
The foreign policy argument for Clinton tends to skip over her time in the Senate—when she voted for the Patriot Act and the 2003 invasion of Iraq—and focus on her experience as secretary of state. But the details of this experience (apart from the email scandal and the ill-founded GOP congressional investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attacks) receive little attention.
Even a mildly critical look at her time as secretary of state reveals a chilling record.
After Clinton’s dramatic hearing on Libya in Congress last October, Patrick Cockburn (for decades one of the most incisive and sober journalists covering the Middle East)wrote that “neither Clinton nor the Republican Congressmen showed much interest in the present calamitous state of Libya, which is divided into fiefdoms ruled by criminalised warlords reliant on terror and torture. Benghazi is partly in ruins and is fought over by rival factions, while Islamic State has carved out enclaves where it decapitates Egyptian Copts and Ethiopian Christians.” Cockburn continues:
Of course, there is a strong case against Clinton’s actions in Libya, but they relate to her support for the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 … . There is no doubt that she played a crucial role …  in the decision by the US to intervene on the side of the anti-Gaddafi rebels. … Clinton was proud of her action, proclaiming in October 2011 after the killing of Gaddafi: “We came, we saw, he died.” She said during the recent Democratic presidential candidates’ debate that what she did in Libya was “smart power at its best.”
Arguing that “Hillary is the Candidate of the War Machine,” Columbia’s Jeffrey Sachs recently extended Cockburn’s point: “After the NATO bombing, Libya descended into civil war while the paramilitaries and unsecured arms stashes in Libya quickly spread west across the African Sahel and east to Syria. The Libyan disaster has spawned war in Mali, fed weapons to Boko Haram in Nigeria, and fueled ISIS in Syria and Iraq.”
Sachs moves on with this summary of Clinton’s work in Syria:
Perhaps [her] crowning disaster … has been [her] relentless promotion of CIA-led regime change in Syria. Once again Hillary bought into the CIA propaganda that regime change to remove Bashar al-Assad would be quick, costless, and surely successful. In August 2011, Hillary led the US into disaster with her declaration Assad must “get out of the way,” backed by secret CIA operations.
Five years later, no place on the planet is more ravaged by unending war, and no place poses a great threat to US security. More than 10 million Syrians are displaced, and the refugees are drowning in the Mediterranean or undermining the political stability of Greece, Turkey, and the European Union. Into the chaos created by the secret CIA-Saudi operations to overthrow Assad, ISIS has filled the vacuum, and has used Syria as the base for worldwide terrorist attacks.
It seems Secretary Clinton’s hawkishness was matched only by her arms dealing. As the Intercept’s Lee Fang recently reported: after making weapons transfer to Saudi Arabia a “top priority” as secretary of state, emails from Clinton’s private server recently released under a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit:
show her aides kept her well-informed of the approval process for a $29.4 billion sale in 2011 of up to 84 advanced F-15SA fighters, manufactured by Boeing, along with upgrades to the pre-existing Saudi fleet of 70 F-15 aircraft and munitions, spare parts, training, maintenance, and logistics. The deal was finalized on Christmas Eve 2011.
Afterward, Jake Sullivan, then Clinton’s deputy chief of staff ad now a senior policy adviser on her presidential campaign, sent her a celebratory email string topped with the chipper message: “FYI — good news.”
As for what became of the arms: Saudi Arabia is almost a year into a bombing campaign in Yemen that, as Fang explains, has been led by the American-made F-15 jet fighters:
The indiscriminate bombing of civilians and rescuers from the air has prompted human rights organizations to claim that some Saudi-led strikes on Yemen may amount to war crimes. At least 2,800 civilians have been killed in the conflict so far, according to the United Nations — mostly by airstrikes. The strikes have killed journalists and ambulance drivers.
The planes, made by Boeing, have been implicated in the bombing of three facilities supported by Doctors Without Borders (Médicins Sans Frontières). The U.N. Secretary General has decried “intense airstrikes in residential areas and on civilian buildings in Sanaa, including the chamber of commerce, a wedding hall, and a center for the blind,” and has warned that reports of cluster bombs being used in populated areas “may amount to a war crime due to their indiscriminate nature.”
But the Saudi deal was just one small part of a larger and even more troubling picture. As the International Business Times (IBT) reported, under Clinton the State Department signed off on $316 billion in arms sales to countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation. Now the Clinton campaign has received vastly more supportfrom arms manufacturers than any other candidate of either party.
A look at her work in Latin America adds to the trouble. In June, Salon’s Matthew Pulver showed how Secretary Clinton provided cover for a right-wing coup in Honduras. Political violence spiked in the chaos that followed, and the country went on to have the highest murder rate in the world.
And as the IBT reported last April: As the United States was liberalizing trade with Colombia in 2011, “union leaders and human rights activists conveyed … harrowing reports of violence [by the Colombian military against striking oil workers] to then–Secretary of State Clinton … urging her to pressure the Colombian government to protect labor organizers, she responded first with silence, these organizers say. The State Department publicly praised Colombia’s progress on human rights, thereby permitting hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. aid to flow to the same Colombian military that labor activists say helped intimidate workers.” The IBT report continues:
At the same time that Clinton’s State Department was lauding Colombia’s human rights record, her family was forging a financial relationship with Pacific Rubiales, the sprawling Canadian petroleum company at the center of Colombia’s labor strife. The Clintons were also developing commercial ties with the oil giant’s founder, Canadian financier Frank Giustra, who now occupies a seat on the board of the Clinton Foundation, the family’s global philanthropic empire.
The details of these financial dealings remain murky, but this much is clear: After millions of dollars were pledged by the oil company to the Clinton Foundation — supplemented by millions more from Giustra himself — Secretary Clinton abruptly changed her position on the controversial U.S.-Colombia trade pact. Having opposed the deal as a bad one for labor rights back when she was a presidential candidate in 2008, she now promoted it, calling it “strongly in the interests of both Colombia and the United States.” The change of heart by Clinton and other Democratic leaders enabled congressional passage of a Colombia trade deal that experts say delivered big benefits to foreign investors like Giustra.

Here is a  look at the the Bible verses from which Christians draw their inspiration & guidance and compare it to their actions as manifested in the...

United States Of America (A Christian Nation);


Notice how certain verses authorizing followers of the Bible's "God" to kill indiscriminately seem to manifest themselves as cultural behavior throughout the centuries;

Manifest destiny was the belief that America was given to the white immigrants & their slaves by God. Of course, the land wasn't empty. There were other people around but they were defined as "savages" thus not having the same rights as the white immigrants who called themselves "civilized" (these are normal demonization tactics which Christians - especially as a white religion - have employed since the beginning). Thus the land had to be cleared of it's "weeds" so it could become habitable. Their religion gave them blatant permission to continue through their religious interpreters or maybe through a thorough reading by the masses (there was a time when the Bible was almost the only book around). So the massacres began;

Deuteronomy 20:16 "However, in the cities of the nations the Lord your God is giving you as an inheritance, do not leave alive anything that breathes."

Deuteronomy 13:13-19 - Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods. In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully. If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock. Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it. Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God. That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt. Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction. Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you. He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors. "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him." 

1 Samuel 15:2-4 2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, when he came up from Egypt.
3 Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass.
4 And Saul gathered the people together, and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand footmen, and ten thousand men of Judah.

    "Go up, my warriors, against the land of Merathaim and against the people of Pekod. Yes, march against Babylon, the land of rebels, a land that I will judge!  Pursue, kill, and completely destroy them, as I have commanded you," says the LORD.  "Let the battle cry be heard in the land, a shout of great destruction".   (Jeremiah 50:21-22 NLT)

Kill the Entire Town if One Person Worships Another God
    Suppose you hear in one of the towns the LORD your God is giving you that some worthless rabble among you have led their fellow citizens astray by encouraging them to worship foreign gods.  In such cases, you must examine the facts carefully.  If you find it is true and can prove that such a detestable act has occurred among you, you must attack that town and completely destroy all its inhabitants, as well as all the livestock.  Then you must pile all the plunder in the middle of the street and burn it.  Put the entire town to the torch as a burnt offering to the LORD your God.  That town must remain a ruin forever; it may never be rebuilt.  Keep none of the plunder that has been set apart for destruction.  Then the LORD will turn from his fierce anger and be merciful to you.  He will have compassion on you and make you a great nation, just as he solemnly promised your ancestors.  "The LORD your God will be merciful only if you obey him and keep all the commands I am giving you today, doing what is pleasing to him."  (Deuteronomy 13:13-19 NLT)

Greenspan admits Iraq was about oil, as deaths put at 1.2Million

 Nahum 2:2-10 NLT For the land of Israel lies empty and broken after your attacks, but the LORD will restore its honor and power again.  Shields flash red in the sunlight!  The attack begins!  See their scarlet uniforms!  Watch as their glittering chariots move into position, with a forest of spears waving above them.  The chariots race recklessly along the streets and through the squares, swift as lightning, flickering like torches.  The king shouts to his officers; they stumble in their haste, rushing to the walls to set up their defenses.  But too late!  The river gates are open!  The enemy has entered!  The palace is about to collapse!  Nineveh's exile has been decreed, and all the servant girls mourn its capture.  Listen to them moan like doves; watch them beat their breasts in sorrow.  Nineveh is like a leaking water reservoir!  The people are slipping away.  "Stop, stop!" someone shouts, but the people just keep on running.  Loot the silver! Plunder the gold!  There seems no end to Nineveh's many treasures – its vast, uncounted wealth.  Soon the city is an empty shambles, stripped of its wealth.  Hearts melt in horror, and knees shake.  The people stand aghast, their faces pale and trembling.   (

Blasphemy (opposite of free speech)

We like to think ourselves superior to the Muslims because of thier lack of free speech, which is fine to some degree. Where it falls apart is when someone think being Christian is being better than a Muslim. I would like to point out that Free Speech is a Constitutional thing and not a religious freedom. IN Christianity there is a very strict law for unpermitted free speech. It's called "blasphemy" and the penalty is death;

Deuteronomy 17:12 NLT - Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death.  Such evil must be purged from Israel.  

It was the priests of Christianity that started the Native American genocide & burnt the books of the Mayan civilization. People often forget that.
Leviticus 24:10-16 One day a man who had an Israelite mother and an Egyptian father got into a fight with one of the Israelite men. During the fight, this son of an Israelite woman blasphemed the LORD's name. So the man was brought to Moses for judgment. His mother's name was Shelomith. She was the daughter of Dibri of the tribe of Dan. They put the man in custody until the LORD's will in the matter should become clear. Then the LORD said to Moses, "Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire communitystone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD's name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD's name will surely die.

Notice that slavery is a religious thing and that's why Americans not only kept slaves for at least 2/3rds of its history (being a the last western nation to even abandon slavery and even then after a hard fought war by the slave owners), but it's richest citizens are busy structuring the economy of the country around the idea of creating a slave like working class. This too is a very Christian thing to do. Here are some related verses;

Ephesians 6:5 - Slaves, obey your earthly masters with deep respect and fear. Serve them sincerely as you would serve Christ. 

Anyone notice how the much celebrated "Southern Work Ethic" is basically just a form of slavery? Thier politicians are even trying to reverse working conditions to the age of slavery with it's "no minimum wage" policies by calling it the free market. Yes, it was the "free market" - a market with ABSOLUTELY no laws and regulations - that allowed slavers to kidnap people and put them on thier plantations. That's what the GOP's politicians want.

Slavery was Christian Free Market Capitalism at its finest. The fact that the market isn't free as it would assume complete mobility of source, i.e. people would need to have the ability to easily move to a forest on the other side of the plant if they needed to - or even if they had the ability to leave one part of the country for another without any financial or personal emotional cost - all of these make the labor market sticky and thus not at all free in any sense of the word. Add to this the fact that Christians of this nation were kidnapping people to keep them as slaves giving the labor market even less freedom than it currently has (though the conservatives are working on bringing more freedom into our labor markets) and the labor market becomes more and more like this, i.e. it moves from more citizen worker freedom to less citizen worker freedom.

For context;

This is more worker freedom;

This is less worker freedom;

1 Timothy 6:1-2 - Christians who are slaves should give their masters full respect so that the name of God and his teaching will not be shamed. If your master is a Christian, that is no excuse for being disrespectful. You should work all the harder because you are helping another believer by your efforts. Teach these truths, Timothy, and encourage everyone to obey them. 

Keep in mind that slaves, by definition, have no freedom of choice or movement bu thier owners have COMPLETE choice in thier actions towards the slaves. No laws and regulations can be very profitable for a predator such as a wolf having it's fill of unregulated & unwatched sheep.

As the cost of living get higher, as people have to work more and more hours to scratch a living, the normal citizens of the United States (a Christian nation) are returning to a more free version of the slavery economic model but with some constitutional freedoms embedded in them, such as the right to revolt and have a revolution. The conservatives are working hard at returning the country to the Christian version of the labor market with no minimum wage and no regulations thus making it possible - eventually, as culture deteriorates over time - to keep their labor as the did in the old days when there was less law and regulation;

Leviticus 25:44-46 However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. 

Interestingly enough, the GOP and the American media (reflecting what citizens think is important) ignore all the evidence of better lives for the citizens of other white and formerly Christian nations in Europe who have not only increased their minimum wage over the decades to reflect increases in living costs but also provide more and more freedom to their citizens to pursue thier lives (while the freedom the GOP seeks to give is only to corporations so they can abuse other citizens with greater and greater freedom, but that is the Christian way). The most fascinating thing is that Constitutional behavior with citizen rights seems have have found fertile ground in Europe and not in America where it was given birth to. It makes sense in a way, the Founding Fathers were European immigrants and in them emerged the end point of European political development with the writing of the Constitution. America however is a Christian nation and while Europe become a Constitutional nation with citizens having more precedence than the rich how could - with no laws - own slaves in America we once again serve the rich, reducing laws and regulations in accordance with the bible giving less and less right sto our citizens and more to our "royalty" so that eventually our royalty can keep people more and more like serfs. Maybe one day, in a few decades, slavery will return. That would be the fruition of conservative christian capitalist economics where everything, including people is just an economic resource to be exploited. (note: IN economics terms what the conservatives are endorsing is called "Robber Baron Capitalism" which is just a fancy and scientific way of saying exploiting labor more and more towards the no law and regulation state of slavery).

Note: These slavery like laws aren't a coincidence. Notice how in favor of franchises owned by the royalty such as Republicans who own franchises and pass laws (or don't pass the laws to keep income constant with inflation) to make their labor cheaper... what else would former slaves owners support? More rights for regular people or less? A true conflict of interest in term of modern law but from a Christian standpoint it's simply biblical law.

This is more worker freedom;

America is somewhere in between and heading in the wrong direction... towards slavery in some sense or another... debt slavery being the most common though there are signs of sex slavery which brings me to yet another part of the Bible;

Deuteronomy 21:10-14 NAB"When you go out to war against your enemies and the LORD, your God, delivers them into your hand, so that you take captives, if you see a comely woman among the captives and become so enamored of her that you wish to have her as wife, you may take her home to your house.  But before she may live there, she must shave her head and pare her nails and lay aside her captive's garb.  After she has mourned her father and mother for a full month, you may have relations with her, and you shall be her husband and she shall be your wife.  However, if later on you lose your liking for her, you shall give her her freedom, if she wishes it; but you shall not sell her or enslave her, since she was married to you under compulsion."

 Numbers 31: 17-18 "17. Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. 18. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves."

At approx 3 mins 40 secs: “If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives” (Deuteronomy 22:28–29).

But if this charge is true (that she wasn't a virgin on her wedding night), and evidence of the girls virginity is not found, they shall bring the girl to the entrance of her fathers house and there her townsman shall stone her to death, because she committed a crime against Israel by her unchasteness in her father's house.  Thus shall you purge the evil from your midst.  (Deuteronomy  22:20-21 NAB)

Genesis 19:8 New International Version (NIV):  8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.” 

Exodus 21:7-11 When a man sells his daughter as a slave, she will not be freed at the end of six years as the men are. If she does not please the man who bought her, he may allow her to be bought back again. But he is not allowed to sell her to foreigners, since he is the one who broke the contract with her. And if the slave girl's owner arranges for her to marry his son, he may no longer treat her as a slave girl, but he must treat her as his daughter. If he himself marries her and then takes another wife, he may not reduce her food or clothing or fail to sleep with her as his wife. If he fails in any of these three ways, she may leave as a free woman without making any payment.
