    See there you go with that right wing mentality, get everything as cheap as possible, but in the long run it comes to bite you in the ass. It comes with a price.


    everything comes with a price......and people make decisions every day about where to shop, and what to buy

    1.Walmart doesnt exactly sell a lot of USA made products though, does it?

    2dont blame the right wing for chasing a lot of manufacturing out of this country.....

    the unions, and their unwillingness to see what was happening around the globe contributed mightily to that problem

    The legislators and their trade laws contributed also.....but it was going to happen....sooner or later

    the only right wing part you have right is that corporate america is in business for themselves

    not their workers...not the unions.....

    3it is all about the profits and growth of the company.......

    some on the left think that is wrong......i think it is capitalism

    companies have a responsibility to their owners, and their shareholders.....that's it
    1. That's one reason why I never give them My money.
    2. I will, they are largely to blame. 3. When profits outweigh providing superior and quality products, exceptional service then My dollars will be spent elsewhere. It's a shame that more people don't follow that. We as a consumer based society have come to accept mediocrity much to simply because it's "cheaper"

    When the cost of living comes more in line with what it should be, then a person can be more dicriminating.

    It's been silly like that since a certain community organizer delivered a speech to a lost-cause Democratic convention where the hopeless were fooled into thinking socialism is liberalism and image trumps substance.

    Alright there, Texas sharpshooter. We can all agree polls can't determine logic. If anything, you should be looking more at what kind of policies were protected, and not just political party. Usually someone smart enough to google up some facts can determine who to vote for. Arguing "LOL WE'RE SMARTER THAN THOU" doesn't do much of anything.

    It also depends on what degree you're going for, from what I've heard.

    Taylor's are a-lot like republicans. Dull, lifeless and dead sounding.

    Nixon is responsible for chasing manufacturing out of this country.

    The robots will bring manufacturing back home.

Hence, public policy can't become rigid without losing effectiveness. Moreover, since there is no near perfect policy approach, there is diversity of opinion (liberal, conservative, libertarian, etc.). In a world of change, that diversity of political thought is a strength (and your position articulates that), as effective policy makers can draw from a larger pool of ideas to confront societal challenges and opportunities. Clearly, some extremes have been properly discredited e.g., fascism, but in the mainstream, there is a lot of heterogeneity.
    Which is exactly why the commies swept the votes every election in the USSR. Where did that get them?
