Protect Jobs in China or in the U.S.? Take a Stand!

Why does our economy continue to decline as more Americans are reduced to government-dependency every day?  Please take two minutes to watch our vice-president Joe Biden try to defend the US free-trade policies of recent years (including the Trans-Pacific Partnership which is currently being fast-tracked through Congress) and see Pat Buchanan destroy them:

Biden, his boss President Obama, and Harry Reid claim to be motivated by the dream of a “New World Order”, a “level playing field”, and “the success of those with whom we compete”.  Sadly, many Republicans including house speaker John Boehner are rolling over as well.

Could it be that these Washington, DC elites are owned by the incredibly wealthy business tycoons and their lobbyists who have profited greatly by shipping 55% of our manufacturing jobs overseas?

In his upcoming state of the union speech President Obama is expected to decry income inequality, while out of the other side of his mouth he promotes free trade.  The two are incompatible.  Free trade clearly creates income inequality by creating enormous corporate profits without domestic employment.

Isn’t it about time our leaders take a stand for American jobs and families?

Rockin' On the Right Side

Now stand in the place where you work.
Now face west.    [toward China!]
Think about the place where you live,
Wonder why you haven’t before!

STAND – R.E.M.

Side note for Montanans:  Rep. Steve Daines (R) and Sen. Max Baucus (D) have supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership; Sen. Jon Tester (D) appears to support the treaty, but has demanded protections for the US timber industry.

  1. I have been trying to tell everyone the folly of not supporting our own country. When Nixon started negotiating with China- I felt ‘foot steps on our collective graves’. Reagan, Bush, Carter and Clinton all supported NAFTA. Still I didn’t think it was a good idea. We have done quite a bit with that one….we exported jobs, Mexico and Canada imported all those new goods. ANY American supporting ‘free trade’ should treated as a traitor.

    • You know I’m not a “class envy” guy but it’s statistically astonishing how much wealth has gravitated to the top 1% – the big stockholders and the CEO’s – over the last 15 years or so. And the middle class has been squeezed out. The middle class was the strength of our nation and it’s gone, and with it our national security. Scary times, my friend.
