    Particularly depending on the level one thinks they need to be confronted. I agree with Goshin, not treason, not patriotic.

    Laws should reward corporations for creating American jobs. And punish corporations for outsourcing them.

    Company X has to outsource some work/materials or go under thereby losing what jobs Company X offeres in the US.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm

    Outsource and save the company, or not outsource and fail.

    Tis Patriotic to fail. Got it.

    Well, I said reward, but I'll answer anyway. You can incentivize creating domestic jobs or outsourcing, depending on how laws are structured.

    And where does the money come from to be substantial enough to motivate large multi-national corporations?

    China's economy is being hurt by outsourcing to Vietnam. Outsourcing isn't connected to patriotism, it is however connected to counter productive domestic economic policy. American industries would be pleased to reinvest in America if in a global economy they were able to repatriate their money without being punished by the government for it. Make no mistake, over regulation, labor unions and lack of protection from dumping have moved entire industries overseas. We are our own worst enemy.

    I wouldn't call it unpatriotic. Merely capitalistic. It just is what it is. Corporate greed. As for the argument that domestic mismanagement is responsible, then I'd agree, but not on the basis of taxation. Only that our domestic workforces aren't likely to include 5-year-olds with no legal rights, working 16 hour shifts for a dime a day in squalid and unsafe conditions.
