This is more than a tidal wave. It is more than an avalanche. It is here. If those aftermarkets are decimated, shrunken, collapsed because of what I am going to be explaining to you in a minute, because of the fact that the VCR is stripping those things clean, those markets clean of our profit potential, you are going to have devastation in this marketplace. . . . We are going to bleed and bleed and hemorrhage, unless this Congress at least protects one industry that is able to retrieve a surplus balance of trade and whose total future depends on its protection from the savagery and the ravages of this machine. . . .
I say to you that the VCR is to the American film producer and the American public as the Boston strangler is to the woman home alone.
Just a reminder that paid political arguments are not always true.
