Bring Back Howard Hughes


Where did the leaders go? I guess they all went to work for the public sector unions. No, they’ve taken the easy way out. Turned their corporations into people that pay no taxes to support the country’s Defense of their corporatocracy, and all while hiding behind our flag. After a decade of tax decreases these leaders/job creators, listening to their financial analysts and accountants, outsourced our jobs, moved companies to any state that gave more incentives and all the time blamed unions. I remember a leader named Howard Hughes. In his time his company didn’t need a union to secure fair wages and benefits. Those people are fewer and fewer, who put the workers and their families ahead of corporate greed. Can you believe the number of so-called American corporations that pay no taxes? Expose each and every one of them.
