    sounds like a baseless claim to me
    Name a politician who claimed that the successful job creating policy of Ronald Reagan, Supply Side Economics, was a "mistake of the past", and you got yourself an idiot teleprompter reader who's trying to keep people on his plantation.

    If that were true (and I'm sure in some cases it may be) I would agree with you. However, I hope that at least some of our politicians have our (I am including all parties, democrat, republican, etc.) best interests at heart.

    So if it is the politicians that are to blame, why are we not debating regarding how we can change politics to weed out the greedy ones?

    And do you regard these as actions or reactions?

    There is a serious disconnect in your post

    Unions make US labor overpriced which is a main reason why jobs go to labor of the same quality that is cheaper. ie overseas.

    cars made in Korea and Japan are generally better than US made cars. Remind me about American made Televisions, or phones etc.

    Where are brooks brothers shirts made? You can google that if you don't own any

    Of course I don't want higher taxes. But we have to pay for what we let our government do. There's no such thing as a free lunch. If we don't like stuff like this, we have to do a better job controlling the government.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    why are you trying to derail a point with this silly claim. the fact is many other countries have workers equally skilled to those in the USA -especially in low skilled manufacturing jobs-and at far lower costs
