Santa theory

To the Editor:

Our trade laws have allowed and even promoted our jobs to be exported to Communist China, where pollution and labor laws are not a factor. This financial hurricane has left victims on the shores of poverty and unemployment stripping them of home, educational funds, retirement and 401(k) policies, as well as self-respect. 

Now profiteers chant “freeloader and entitlement takers,” hoping to gain just a little more. I say these profiteers should be required to pay these castoffs full pay, and this injustice would be swiftly rectified and the American dream resurrected. 

For those saying these people are looking for Santa, they should read the “Two Santa Claus Theory,” a political theory written by Jude Wanniski in 1976.
