    Results of trade deficit: massive job outsourcing, and less exports to the countries we are trading with. I thought NAFTA was supposed to lessen our trade deficit and increase exports? Opposite occurred.
    Our exports have grown.

    Mercantilism was and remains a dumb economic philosophy. NAFTA was supposed to increase trade. It is worth noting, however, that our exports did increase, and furthermore, they increased much more to our NAFTA partners than they did to the rest of the world. Net job effects were positive, and the same is true of GDP.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Oh you think the high number of immigrants entering the US is a good thing? Even if they are considered "legal" or "illegal"?
