    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Maybe they don't drive American cars because they aren't as good. And yes, I'm sure you are correct, the Obama administration not driving American cars is the reason Detroit is in trouble.
    Affiant further sayeth not.

    When you buy a car made in these plants, where do the profits go?

    A international company either way. However no matter which cars are purchased American workers are still getting paid to make those cars.

    Wait...did you really just blame GM's financial state on Barack Obama?

    Sounds like "change we can believe in" to me. Progress does not often involve clinging to failing industries. I own a foreign car, as does anyone with common sense.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.

    This is ridiculous. Capitalism's side effect is a world-wide spreading of wealth, as there are going to be investments in the cheapest.
