There is -- propaganda war that is beginning now.
And I don't believe that it is intended to actually repay anything from the harvests for awhile.
-- gas prices go up -- your food prices for more people lose their jobs.
It will be important that you know the truth now our old friend Van Jones has been talking about the American dream a lot lately which is.
Is interesting coming from a and -- and Communist.
Even organized a nation -- rally to promoted over the weekend.
It's an expression were all pretty comfortable with right the American dream.
But we should probably.
Define the American dream.
Because what's happening now is another progressive hijacking.
The American dream that you dream about is the same opportunity for all you -- shocked -- Martin Luther King talked about.
Give me a chance.
Progressives have -- about the same outcome for all.
Al Sharpton recently said it that's what -- to king's dream was the same stuff and everybody's house house is Furl guarantee jobs for all -- food net income for all.
Well that's not the American dream I think most Americans even recognize that's -- so far beyond -- progressive dream.
But how has that progressive dream worked out so far.
Fortunately for America who -- to choose we have numerous examples of the kind of -- progressive policies that lead to.
-- show you this city.
Tell me what city you think this is.
You recognize it.
-- give you one clue and you'll believe it.
It's a city that rumor had it would be uninhabitable for centuries to come because of radiation.
Is hero she -- August 6 1945.
An atomic bomb completely destroyed almost 70% of the buildings.
And by the end of the year up to 140000.
Have died look at the city then.
Almost half of the city's population in total died.
Some 200000 or more would eventually die from the effects.
Now look at here she met today.
It's not the wreckage.
Well people decided that they -- going to allow their city to be destroyed forever yes the government came in and helped rebuild the city but what else could have.
Rebuilt from that destruction.
They needed help from the government but it was the people in bracing the free market system that revitalized.
-- she not let me show you another city.
Here's a city that when Hiroshima looked like they did in destruction.
This city looked like like this who's -- This Detroit Michigan but take a look at Detroit today.
Embraced the free market system and the entrepreneurial spirit.
The other embraced progressive policies and corrupt government and unions and companies that weren't allowed to fail.
And they should have failed because they stunk on nice big big for a bailout and got one.
And the union bosses did their share too.
Where is Hiroshima has nearly quadrupled in size since the attack.
Not so much with Detroit.
Less than 50% of Detroit's peak population of one point eight million in 1950.
Still live in the city.
36% of -- -- residents live in poverty.
Detroit's poverty rate is more than double than that as the entire US as a whole.
Of Detroit's public school students qualified for free and reduced price lunches in 200981%.
As far as education about 42% of Detroit's public school students don't even graduate.
Now the problem for the left is they they can't say old Detroit inherited this problem from the big evil George Bush.
These in the failed policies of his corporate cronies the fat -- rich friends really.
Democrats have been in power for Detroit for over fifteen years.
No -- mr.
-- it was this Big Three auto corporations that rule Detroit that's what killed Motown.
I want you to know that.
Those companies -- But it had nothing to do with democratic policies or corruption like that if can -- a convicted former mayor.
And certainly nothing to do with the unions there -- by the -- -- -- their for the workers.
Well not according to Richard Trumka the head of the AFL CIO he cares about you watch.
I get into the labor movement.
Not because when it.
To negotiate wages I -- unbelievable because I saw as a vehicle.
Could do massive social change to include -- lots of people.
That's -- I got -- believable.
So it's not about your wages.
It's about the progressive ideas.
He believes in those ideas.
-- you can blame Ford and GM it they're bad corporate policies.
And those policies because of the progressives.
Weren't allowed to reset nobody allowed them to fail.
Bad policies and union deals helped rocked this city from the core.
This is the path America that we are now embracing.
We are bracing now a country that.
Union the union deals and big unions.
And bailing out businesses that should -- failed because they were run poorly.
This city did what our country.
Is doing now.
Embracing all the policies.
And led to this.
But it doesn't have to be this way.
But you the citizen the shareholder in the United States of America has to make the choice.
Founder said that you.
Could not live in a country and have freedom if the citizenry it was an informed.
A lot of people say that what I tell you is just nothing but lies.
I encourage you every night do your own homework you must be informed.
We have to.
Stop the corruption.
We have to convince the American people that what happened in Detroit in cities like it.
Can happen here in America and will.
And we have to know and be able to show them the proof.
Of who it was.
That led those cities there.
