Pat Buchanan on Technology
2000 Reform Candidate for President
America has not built a nuclear power plant in 30 years. China has dozens under way. America built Hoover Dam and Grand Coulee Dam in Franklin Delano Roosevelt's first two terms. China just completed Three Gorges Dam, the largest power source on earth. China used its stimulus money to tie the nation together with a light rail, bullet trains, and highways in infrastructure projects. America used much of her stimulus money to save government jobs. The United States has retired the space shuttle and her astronauts will hitchhike to a U.S.-built space station aboard Russian rockets. China is headed to the moon. During the Cold War, China was in the grip of a millenarian Maoist ideology that blinded her to her true national interests.
A: We obviously will spend it in trying to get our message across to the American people. One is that Hollywood has been using the First Amendment as a shield law behind which it has been systematically polluting America’s popular culture and poisoning the hearts and minds of children. And I think Clinton and Gore, rather than smashing Microsoft as a monopoly, which has done virtually nothing to injure the American people, we ought to take a look at the use of these antitrust laws to break up these media monopolies to much smaller sizes, where folks and local communities can really look at what is being dumped into that community, in terms of social poisons. So I think this is a major issue and I hope we can focus on that, as well as some of these other issues.
