    Why Did We Let The Politicians Sell Out America???

    Do you know that it was both parties, the Republicans and the Democrats who voted for NAFTA and sent America's Textile Jobs out of the United States. We need to stand up as an American people and say to hell with the Republicans and the Democrats. We need to demand a return to , " Made In America " and pass a constitutional amendment that says that 80 percent of any product would have to be made in the USA.  This would of course mean capping imports at 20 percent. This would save America. It should have been done before NAFTA was passed. Stand up American's before it's too late.

    Easier said than done.  With all the lawsuite and the union disputes, manufacturing is not cost effective here.  When computers where made here they cost $2000 or more requiring financing by most.  Now made in Mexico, they are $500 to $750 and within most people reach. 
    You can't make something here for $2000 then pay the worker $10 per hour.  If anything, manufacturing can be done here if fully automated to keep costs down.

    That's because we always just talk about the problems which is fine to bring attentions to one another.  We need to start writing or talking about what we can do to stop such concerns that is being brought to our attention.  Then ACT!

    History is not written by what we say!

    I'm just sayin....

    How about Congress and Senate reduce their own salaries to $50,000 per year rather than the $175,000 they currently make? Why don't they buy their own health insurance like we have to? Why don't they fund a 401K like we have to? BECAUSE they are sanctimonious a$$holes who think they are worth it! Talk about delusions of grandeur! Those MORONS should be OUSTED in this next election but probably won't because people are too chicken to stand up to Government!
