RE: Outsourcing American Jobs
What does history show? World powers do not stay world powers forever. The Roman Empire. The sun never set on an English colony. French colonialism. Where did these superpowers go. The United States was a third world country. We industrialized. Our isolation allowed us to expand and supply the war machine of World War II. We then used our might to get Germany and Japan back on their feet. We started buying German and Japanese products. Corporation needed weatlhy Americans to buy consumer products. Salaries increased. Credit became available. People wanted cheaper goods. Outsourcing was invented. Now we have Wal*Mart and the ever present "Made in x" label. We used to see Made in Japan on everything. Now where are TV's and Toasters made. China and Korea. The superpowers of tomorrow. The United States will continue to fall into the mire that is France and the UK. Staggering unemployment and a service economy. In the meantime, we are at the cusp of another dark ages. Religious extremists will triumph and destroy the western devils. A strategic nuclear attack on the US will most likely occur in the next 5 to 10 years. THis will cripple our economy and drive us into 3rd world status. Look at New Orleans if you want to know what the US will look like. We will then be like the great Romans. All of their advances destroyed in a flash.
