― Douglas Adams
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)

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.
