    Those western politicians who believe this silly fairy-tale are completely idiots ( or too corrupt ), Outsourcing and Globalism must be stopped as soon as possible, otherwise there are only India and China in fifty years as super powers with former Western World degraded to poor Amerikostan and Saudi Europia without any trace of science, education, culture, Christianity and welfare.

It's how free market capitalism works.

    So in your mind it doesnt matter that our corporations have created a SuperPower thats our greatest threat and will soon over take us economically and who owns a trillion dollars of our debt and who as I write this wants their currency dominant over ours and whos trade deficit with us IS HUGE all so corporations can have the right to strip decent paying jobs from americans for some extra profit....I truly do not understand that mentality...I do understand capitolism but capitolism should not be pure unadulterated greed at the expense of everyone else...and thats precisely whats it become

    There are not difference how to stop stealing of our welfare: with tariffs or per law. The Western World must erect huge wall on its borders against cheep commodities from China or India.

    Maybe fifty thousands sellers will be unemployment, but more as twenty millions Americans will get new jobs in Manufacturing, all jobs which have been lost in the last fifteen years will be back from cheap countries.

    Alfons wants to have his cake and eat it too. Sadly it doesn't work that way.

    You can't force Americans to pay more for their goods just because you think they should.

    It's capitalism, deal with it.

    So-called "human rights" were invented by liberals. A 'human' for those is always sombody who share leftism and hate conservatism.
