I hate to tell you this now-But I gotta point out we are NEVER going to regain a strong middle class [View all]
Without a strong manufacturing focus here in America.
I've said this so many times I feel silly pointing it out again...And we will only get it back when our wages level out to a low 3rd world poverty wage. And we are headed there at warp speed.
Am I just nostalgic or doesn't the concept of protectionism & TARIFFS sound like a more reasonable method?.
I just can't stress enough how much we need fair trade-not "free" trade.
We are headed down a dark path no matter who gets the election this year-the cake is baked. There is no way in hell any reasonable approach will be allowed to go through House Senate & Potus....We can't even pass the most basic legislation to help get Americans back to work. And we will continue to be blocked as long as the Republicans can scam a ever more gullible America.
Like I said-Not a chance in hell...If the Republicans take power it just goes into corporate overdrive & good paying jobs will be a thing of the past you can bet on that-Greed has a very straightforward self motivation-and its not for a better America and they have no empathy for the whole of society as long as they got theirs
It is really hard to be positive about Americas future...Quantumn shift need-apply within!
