    Ah so I get it. Protecting our home industries from the market is common sense. How socialist of you.

    The Chinese copy.
    We should innovate, our attitudes must improve, as must our education and health care.
    Here, We may as well copy the Germans, or at least learn from them.

    That's a weak argument buddy.

    Hardcore Capitalists have the issue of manning up to the fact that when it comes to the International market capitalism does not look so pretty after all.

    The problem is that to be a hardcore capitalist you actually have to understand what capitalism is.

    It's not protectionism. It's more of that common sense I mentioned in another thread. Spend tax payer dollars at home, not abroad. it in no way violates the capitalist market.

    So maybe it's their development that is faster, not the invention itself.

    No, it doesn't. You Libs and the RINO want to think so, in order to make more flamebeaux, but it doesn't.

    It's government bailout of companies that don't deserve it. They have the lesser product, why should we spend money on it?

    It does not matter whether it is common sense or not. Providing a bias toward a company, even though it might not be the best deal for the buyer, does not allow the "market to speak".
