Enough bitching and preaching to the choir. Here area couple of ideas:
First, Mike Rowe fancies himself a spokesman for the working class,also takes a lot of money from David Koch, (the Cato Institute is funded by the Kochs) head on over to Rowe’s FB page( https://www.facebook.com/TheRealMikeRowe/?epa=SEARCH_BOX) and write him a note.
Secondly, the reality TV series Deadliest Catch premiers tonight, head on over to that FB page( https://www.facebook.com/DeadliestCatch/?epa=SEARCH_BOX ) and ask how the cast would like to fish in competition with foreign fishing boats in U.S. waters.
Then since the Cato Inst strongly drives Republican economic policy, ask any Republican friend or relative you have if they really want U.S. maritime turned over to foreign interests,and for that matter,ask them if they oppose the Jones Act, would they be OK with Mexican or Canadian trucks from Omaha to Wichita.
Then find your Democratic friends and relatives and ask why they want to impoverish American Workers to help enrich a few oligarchs.
Sad fact is facts and reason doesn’t work on most people, appeal to their emotions, especially fear.
Yes you’re right that’s not a great thing, but the truth is on our side, if we need to play a little politics to get it into the heads of the U.S. public so be it.
